and able members of the university

one of the strong western universities
for a' pfaco on her teaching force. No

Will be extended to the Nebraska pro
fessor within tbo .next "few weeks. In
case the offer is made, the university
stands Ip danger of losing one of her
The university which Is considering
the Nebraska man, is ono of the strong
tut and richest in the west It bears
the reputation of generally getting
What It goes after In the way of teach
ers. It can offer financial advantages
far superior to any that Nebraska's
state school can extend, and Its stand
ing In other "ways Is fully on a par
with that of this univorslty. Tho uni
versity in question has looked about
tho country for a .man suited to the
place which it has open and it has
looked with much favor upon the Ne
braska professor. Tho matter will
como to a head within a few weeks
and It is quite probable that the ten
der will bo made during the coming
month. Whether or not the University
of Nebraska is to lose one of the
big .men of Its faculty will then de
pend upon tho inclination and ambi
tion of that teacher. t

Tho last of tho series of medical
convocations was hold Friday -evening;
at tho Tomplo. Dr. Howard of the
university mado an address on "The
Rotation of Law to Medicine."
In part pr. Howard spoke as fol
lows: "It Is an old saying that law would
not mako a man bettor, but 'we' 'know
that men can bo mado hotter by law.
Law will mako mon obsorvo more
closely his duties to hlmsolf and to
his follow citizens. Mankind Is pro
grossing very rapidly. Lot' us look at
tho wonders of sclonco and seo the
marvelous things that 'now exist. It
may be that In a very fow thousand
years, wo may bo ablo to open mon's
hoads ahd detormlno tholr .talents.
Tho development of modlcal sclonce
is equally wondorful and 'mora and,
more it Is beginning to grasp with the
problems at band,
"Tho relation of, law to medicine
and hygiene is very closo.. As a rem
edy for many unfavorable conditions
it will prove, most effective and oven
now as in tho Caso of quarantine, its
value is apparent Many gdodi laws
have been suggested by- medical scien
tists, in fact they are always seeking
for tho benefit of humanity. One of
tho most appalling conditions Ve hava
to faco is the high 'death rato and
we may well ask, 'What are we going
to do about It?' Tho death rate diir
lug tho French revolution by starva
tion alono was greater than .the num
ber of those killed during tho Na
poleonic wars. In 1893 a law was in
troduced in congress requiring a safe
ty cat coupler, but by some .means it
was put off until 1900 and during tnese
years 22,000 people wore klllod.on the
railroads; a greater number than, was
killed in tho Boer war. 'Many of these
might. havo been saved 'by thp use
of tho safety device. ' ,
In the Tenements, . .
'Tho death rate In the tenement sec
tion's of NeV York iClty. is forty-two
per thousand, and in the better sec
tion of the country It Is tonly( twelve
per thousand. These are conditions
which must be remedied! New York
transformed Its Mulberry' Bend Into
a great playground for children. The '
death rate also' bears relation, to the
number, of rooms used by the 'family:
