She first took up the question, "How the artist conceives his subject" She rioted tho difference between great and inferior pieces of work. She Illus trated the point by reference to the work of Milet, tho great French art-' 1st He was not so strong In coloring and drawing as in showing humanity overcoming the soil. One man may bo superior In tech nique and yet not be able to paint a great picture. She mentioned Chas. Warren Eaton's "A Bruges Canal," and spoko of' tho skilful manner In which tho artist realized the'same light through out tho picture. The speaker compli mented very highly John W.

ANOTHER CHALLENGE Georgetown University Desires to Meet Nebraska In Debate Other Debates. " The Debating Board Is in receipt of another challenge for debate from tho Georgetown University School of LaW, Washington, D. C. Last fall a chal lenge waB received from thlB Institu tion, but for financial roasons Nebras ka replied that the proposition could not be considered. Tho challenge now at hand strongly urges Nebraska to accept and Is in the nature of a compliment to Nobrnskn, whose fame in debate last year- has apparently reached the eastern col leges. Recently the Georgetown Uni versity thrashed Wisconsin and the latter Is asking for another opportuni ty to show hor prowess. Georgetown, however, refuses to accept Wisconsin's challenge until It Is certain that a de bate can not be arranged with Ne braska. She "would like to debate Nebraska because of her reputation."

The object of UiIb move was to place the fruits where larger crowds could see them. Tho first biennial jreport of tho Ne braska Public Library Commission, of which Mr. J. J. Wyer is president, has just been published. Tho law creat ing this commission wferit Into effect Juno 28, 1901, and active work was be gun the "following Novomher. This report gives a brief summary of the rjv fission's work, Its purpose, and ."' nendix containing . a list of Ne ttie Colleie Song In answer to soveral inquiries con cerning tho prize offer for the best college Bong, we will say that "some gentlemen connected with the Faculty offer a prize of ?100 to the student or graduate of the University of Ne braska who will write an original University of Nebraska song, which a committee shall agree to be of suf ficiently high merit to deserve such a prize." Dean Sherman and Professor Fossler will act on the committee and they will select a third member to act with them.- Mbre detailed conditions will be announced In Tho Dally Nebraskan. Tho offer holds good until May 10, 1903. All manuscript must be handed to Dean Sherman on or before that date. Nebraska is urged to send a speedy reply In order that "negotiations al ready entered Into with other colleges can be broken off," providing tho Ne-bruska-Georgetown debate 1b arranged. The Debating Board has the matter under advisement. Some members are In favor of accepting the challenge'', others are of the opinion that It would be better for Nebraska to meet univer sities of the middle west. The Board has written Georgetown for specific terraB as to tho time of holding a de bate and as to the financial aspect of the matter. It is possible that the two institutions may meet In debate this spring. Tho Georgetown Law School ranks high In the debating world, being in the class with Columbia and Pennsyl vania.

This woman, said Mrs. 8awyer, has won & place In the minds of posterity that will alwayB enduro. Her great ness is contained In the great good -tfiat she was able to do for others. In almost overythlng she can bo hold up as an Ideal. Her greatest ambition was to do good and to show other women that In many Instances their rights are Infringed upon by man. Sho taught women that theywere slaves through choice, largely;" that In most cases they forged tho chains that bound them In servitude.
