Canines Must Suffer.

that may make their appearance in or

ployed. Students and visitors of the

Tomorrow morning university peo

hearing a talk by Dr. Benton, former
chancellor of this Institution. Since
leaving Nebraska, twenty-six years
ago. Dr. Benton has been connected
with Butler university, at lrvington,
Ind.. holding the presidency for a num
ber of years, and continuing as an in
structor in ancient languages u to
within the last three years. Although
eighty years of age Dr. Benton is as
hale and hearty tih a young man. His
ent-lie life has been devoted to educa
tion, and his strong point has always
bein his popularity with the students.
His character as well as his devotion
to this institution may be illustrated
by an incident which occurred when
he wns chancellor here. An Instructor
was needed In chemistry, and as funds
weie low, Chancellor Benton offered
to pay $500 If the University would
pay the same amount. The offer was
accepted and the first depaitmtnt as

Certainly a good turn6ut is due Dr.
Benton tomorrow morning, with a
