The number of contributions to vari
ous kinds of llteraturo by faculty and
student members of the University Is
probably much greater than tho ma
jority of us realize. Each month the
University Is creditably represented In
several of the standard periodicals, to
say nothing of its sharo in the more
permanent and ponderous works of
the year. As an example of tho institu
tion's activity along these lines, we
glvo below a brief summary of Univer
sity contributions to various publica
tions for tHb paBt month.
Tho third volume of the publications
issued by the Nebraska ornithologists'
union, which was established in 1899,
is Just being published. It is in many
ways, says Dr. Wolcott, tho handsom
est publication ever issued by an or
nithological society. It is printed on
tho best booK paper, dnd-the illustra
tions are very fine. It consists of 110
pages, Including 100 cuts and 16 full
pago half-tones from photographs of
birds, nests and eggs. The leading
article Is by Professor Barbour, on the
progenitors of birds, and is a more
complete write-up of the primitive
birds and bird ancestry than Is now
anywhere else In print. There are also
articles on the birds of northwestern
Nebraska, the birds of the sandhills,
tho winter birds of NebrasKa, and bird
photography. The articles were most
ly written by Professor Bruner and
his assistants, and by Professor Wol
cott, and other members of the union.
At the close of the volume Professor
Wolcott has part of an article which
is to bo a resume of all that has been
done on Nebraska birds up to date. The
bibliography in this volume includes
nearly 200 titles.
ThiB Bociety, now in Its fourth year,
numbers nearly 200 members, and Is
stronger than any state ornithologist
society that haB ever existed in una
country, and even stronger than some
societies that have drawn from several
Btates. It has done more work than
any other society, with the exception
of tho national ornithologists' union.
Mr. R. C. Roper, '01, a member of
tho senior law class, has an article In
the February number of "The Open
Court," on "The ReligiouB Beliefs of
Abraham Lincoln." In It ho says: "A
Methodist minister once said that Ab
raham Lincoln was too great a man to
belong to any church. This sentiment
Is far more charitable than some of
tho printed speculations on tho simple
faith of our martyred pres.uent. But
it Is pre-eminently true. Lincoln was
too great a man to belong to any sect
whoso creed would force a single soul
outalde Its fola: too broad a man to J
confine his religious life within denom
inational barriers; too simple to enjoy
the pomp and show of forms an.d cere
monies; too aympathetlc to affiliate
himself with any church less Inclusive
than the brotherhood of all men.
Lincoln was an extremely religious
man, though not a technical Chris
tian." Chancellor Andrews has an Illustrat
ed article In the January number of
Review of Reviews on "Tho American
Ox and Hla Pasture." The Chancellor
says: "That tho life-supporting power
of the government pastures 1b 'rapidly
declining there can be no doubt. The
high price of beef is not due entirely
to the rapacity of packers. Public
pasture 1b dying out Areas which
half a century ago grew vast herds of
buffalo, antelope and door, and subse
quently even moro Immense troops of
cattle, nro now almost a waste. Still

Professor Orummann has In tho
March number of The Educational Re
view, a criticism of VIorcks' "German
Instruction In tho United States." This
work is a very Important one, being
a part of the government report on ed
ucation. Mr. J. L. Sheldon, of the botany de
partment, has an article In tho No
braska Farmer on "Ergot and Its Ef
fects on Cattle." Abstracts of the ar
ticle have been published In a num
ber of papers.

current issue of McClure's, Is by Keene
