to tho Scandinavian languages.

his new duties. lie is a man of
scholarly attainment and consid
erable practical experience. Lin

work. Although chiefly interest

of which he speaks fluoritly, he
has also devoted a great deal of
attention to Semotics. In fact, he

the particular course of study he
would pursue, whether -the for

Tale of Adventure of "Missing
After a strenuous trip from
Boston to Lincoln through the
U. S. mails, a rest of several
weeks in a postal box at station
A, an investigation by a practi-,
cal detective, and a speedy trip
from Lincoln to Now York, a
hunch of keys will reach its own
er at 60 Wnll street, New York
This is the same 'bunch of 'keys
which fell out of a mail bag at
station A about three weeks ago.
A metal tag which was engraved,
"T, E. Chappoll, University of
Nebraska, " was the only clue
which Detective E. E. Anderson
had to work on. He turned to
tho alumni directory, found the
name of Mr. Chappell, wrote o
hasty note to the gentleman in
question and anxiously awaited
the reply which ho felt confident
would soon Teach -thocityr A
wait qf seven 'days more or less.
and tho answer arrived.
Tho letterhead contained the
business address of "T. E. Chap
pell, 60 Wall Street, New York,
Electrical Machinery and Sup
plies." By referring to the uni
versity alumni directory, Ander
son discovered that Chappell had
graduated With tho class of 1891,
and upon an investigation of the
telephone direotory he learned
that some of Chappell 's name
sakes lived in the city. He called
up the number. Not a voice -answered
the phono. Hence the let
ter to New York and the reply.
The keys are now speeding
across thq continent in a mail
bag. If tho mails are not de
layed Chappell should receive the'
prodigals very soon, as they left
