It was ever carried before Professor
Clements has published a list of plants
that contributes to geographical bot
nny. and it has been well received all
over the world. He also published. In
the University Studies, a paper on the
use of Greek and Latin names, that
at once attracted wide attention in this
country. The paper suggests a revi

The Famous 4 4 Varsity ' '
The "Varsity" styyle as first produced and as continued this season
by Hart, Schaffner & Marx. Is rdmitted to be the most stylish, snappy jj
sack suit in the market. It is particularly a young man's style; has W
the Jaunty, "snappy" effect prized so highly by youthful men. What
we mean by youthful men is that vast army of men between the ages U
of 18 and 30 years. With these men the "Varsity" is particularly
adapted. They possess every point of style that thc3e particular, even tJK
fussy, men demand. The tailoring and shaping of these garments is r)
as carefully done as if they weie the result of custom work.
Prices $12.50, $15.00,

The work of this depaitment is in
charge of Professor Davis, Assistant
Professor Hodgman. Adjutant Profes
sors Candy, Chatburn. and Morltz. Mr.
Engberg. Miss Franklsh. and Miss
Puffer. Dr Mm it, returned at the be
ginning of the present school year
after having been abroad a year, tak
ing his second doctor's degree at
Strassburg Miss Puffer was also add
ed this year, and granted a fellowship,
i here are fourteen courses offered,
which are practically the same as last
year, with the exception of Dr Davis'
courses In higher mathematics, which
me chanced fiom vear to year One
new course was also added, and taught.
In connection with the department of
botany by Mr Engberg A number
of papers have been furnished for va
rious periodicals "The Mathematics
of the Theory of Evolution." was pub
lished in the current number of Uni
versity Studies, and a paper concerning
Dr. Sherman's statistical methods in
literature by Dr Morlt.. will be pub
lished in the next number of the same
Two papeis by Dr. Davib on "(i roups
in Logls" were published In the bul
letins of the Mathematical society, and
one by Mr. Fergusen on "Problems in
Projective Geometry." Professor
Candy Is working on the abridgement
of his Analytic Geometry, and upon a
work on Solid Analytics. To render
the work of computing in biometry
possible, a Bruhns Vega calculating
machine has recently been purchased.
In conjunction with the engineering
lepartment On the whole, the work
of the past year has been most satisfactory.
The department of American his
tory has this year been growing at a
rapid rate, and those who are con
nected with the department have made
valuable discoveries as a result of
careful investigation The total en
rollment reaches about 400. an Increase
of fifty over that of last year, and
eighty over that of the year before.
The courses offered in American his
tory have been the same as were given
last year, but some changes are now
being made for next year's work.
About 100 lantern slides have been se
cured, Illustrative of the history of our
country, and will be used in the lec
ture voom. Other slides will be added
to the number as opportunity offers.
A large number of illust rathe maps
and diagrams have also been prepared
during the year The library, too. has
been increased by the addition of se-
eral hundred olumes, duplicates being
secured in several Helds in which large
classes were at work. These duplicate
books have been purchased in part by
the University, but mostly by the
classes themselves, who liberally do
nated the same to the department.
Along the line of special investigations
several Interesting discoveries have
be"cn made. The seminar in the study
of Nebiabka hbtory obtained, primari
ly through Mr. Sheldon, a large num
ber of letters, documents, and other
papers of the first governor and sec
retary of the territory or Nebraska
Hint and Cuming. Many of these
have never been published, and throw
considerable light on the early history
of the state. New material has also
been found bearing upon the Kansas
Nebraska bill. Investigation shows
that one of the motives for making
two territories arose in a struggle be
tween Chicago and St. Louis for the
tprnitniis of the overland railroad.
Chicago contended for two territories,
and St. Louis objected. This upsets
the old theory that slavery was the
sole cause of the trouble. Commercial
reasons were an Important factor. The
seminar on statistical study of the
negro problem has also made impor
tant discoveries, which appear to clear
ly indicate that the future outlook for
the negro is none too bright. The
death-rate in the black race Is fuund
to be about twice that ot whites, due
principally to consumption and other
functional diseases. These facts rather
point to the (Inal solution of the negro
problem in this country. Hesicies tnese
discoveries, the early history of claim
clubs in Nebraska has been thorough
ly worked out. It has been found that
all lands taken up in the state between
'54 and "57. just previous to the survey,
were under the control of these clubs.
B v carefully tabulating historical
facts, the students in American history
20 And that important new Issues taken
up by the two leading political parties
have almost invariably been taken
from the platforms of the third party
and incorporated in those of the older
parties; from which the conclusion
has been drawn that the third party is
a more valuable factor in American
political life than It has been thought
to be
