THE MATTER OF POLITICS.
It Is with a deop sigh of relief we
see this dark cloud of political strifo
Breaking away and the puro, cheerful
light of happy good-fellowship stream
ing thru the rifts. Whether on ac
count of its convenient location as a
sort of lobby or on account of the prox
lralty of candidates, the air down in
tho Nobraskan offlco has for tho last
week been very dense, and indistinct,
but ominous, mutterings havo dis
turbed the quiet at all hours of day and
First, along comes a group discuss
ing "prospects." Sayings of much pro
fundity uro exchanged, then some-

body says something funny, and there
is nothing but a long continuous guf
faw for the next flfteon minutes. Af
fairs look reasonably promising.
But now. a candidate enters. He is
worn and jaded; he seoniB to lack rest,
hlB eyes havo a tired look about them
together with something of a hunted
expression, but at tho recital of some
"story" being circulated, by an over-enthusiastic
supporter they naturnfly
Hash with resentment. It Is all a big
circus, for the onlooker.
Now it is not the intention to cast a
slur on class politics. As a part of col
logo life, it is proper and praiseworthy,
giving a zest to class life and class
rivalry-, and putting spirit Into things.
Clnss politics 1b to bo oncouraged in
every possible way tho it may, per
chance prove somewhat amusing to see
people getting so .deadly In earnest
H about It, '
Yet there Is one feature of the mat
ter, certainly, which, besides being do-
cidedly. lnugliabje, doserves s6niu thing
other than praise. Thrit Is the prac
tice of telling menu stories about the ,
other fellow. It is not, we believe, in-
dulged in by the candidates, but. there!
aro certain hangers-on not overburden-1
ed with scrupulouness. It reminds one
very much of a child spanking lis!
paper doll after seeing tho grown-upsdo
that sort of thing. At least, wb hope It
is prompted only by a desire to imi
tate. It Is perfectly proper, of course
for real politicians to tell lies about
dach other. They are grown up nnd
are very wIbc, but .it were better to
loave such features to reul politics, and
make class politics clean as well as

gard for the smallest details and the

sirable In Chicago nnd tho competition

aminations, Mr. Shldler has also ob
tained one of tho two Intorcshlps award
ed at Englowood Gonoral Hospital, but
