Monday night at G o'clock tho Dem
ocratic club banquet will bo held at
tho Lincoln hotel. TIiIh is the annual
feed, of tho organization and every
democrat in tho university has boen
asked to attend. One of tho unusual
features, and one in which it differs
from other political gatherings of itB
kind, is that all tho speakers will be
students. Some of tho toasts will be
on national questions of serious im
port, while others will bo of a more
humorous character. Tho toast list
includes some of the moBt 'prominent
men in tho university. Reciprocity,
the presidential candidate situation,
progressive democracy and other sim
ilar subjects will bo discussed. The
committee Iif charge announces that
there has been a good ticket salo and
In spito of tho fact that political par
ties are not occupying tho limelight
at tho present, there seems to bo con
siderable enthusiasm among tho fol
lowers of Jefforson in tho university.

MEEKER.8EES FINANCIAL RUIN.
Freshman Hop Tonight Men Have
Not Made Dates.
Chairman David Meokor is almost
faint from worrying over tho probable
flnunclnl failure of tho freshman hop.
The lust class dance of tho year to be
given tonight nt tho Lincoln will not
bo well attended. At least tho limited
sale of tickets would so indicate. Be
cause of tho late announcement of the
date and advertisement of tho dance,
men have been loath to mako engage
ments at such a late hour. It is hoped,
however, that enough loyal classmen
will buy tickets today to make tho
dance pay out.
IT PAY8 TO ADVERTI8E.
Polygamous Mania Arouses Suspicions
It -pays to advertlso In tho Nebras
kan. At least this has been learned by
tho Union Literary society. One day
this week a notico "was published to
tho effect that the "slato" was In the
hands of a certain man. Thursday
evening this man was more tTian busy
at tho telephone. Nearly every man
in the society called up In tho course
of a few hours and wanted to escort
one of tho young women to tho enter
tainment held laBt night Then some
of them called up again. Tho requests
did not tally. At first tho bearer of
the "slate" believed that all had been
seized with a polygamous mania. Tho
truth of tho whole matter was that
several who wore not membots of tho
Union society were playing a Joke.
This waB found out after much worry
and excitement and: no dates were
wede by telephone. It pays to advertise.
