Sears still lias his own way In tho Bophoraoro class, but overy day now rumors break forth regarding some now possibility.

No doflnito plans, however, can bo laid until aftor tho election, when a committee will bo appointed to engineer tho cam paign. Politics in tho Bophomoro class aro almost at a standstill.

Tho University of NobraBka geo logical department is at prosont per forming somo very valuablo tests upon Bhalo dopoBlts dlBcovorcd near Pnlr-biiry, Nebraska. A d6tailcd Bum mary of this Investigation will short ly bo subject to publication, but until such n report rocolvos a warrantablo sclontlflc verification, no official ro markB will bo -mado. During tho lattor part of last Au gust, bituminous shales from GraneoB formntlon, nenr Falrbury, t wero re ported to Nebraska Unlvorslty au thorities to bo gas producing. Ac cordingly, Prof. N. A.
