About n dozen Seniors met recently
to take the bar examination; but upon
conferring together they concluded that
a diploma from the University would be
more creditable thnn "pass " by the bar
Mr. Watson telegraphed tlmt it would
be impossible for him to fulfill his ap
pointment this week,
The Seniors are struggling, with no
vory brilliant results, over executory de
vices, and other equally puzzling and
uaeletB estates in land.
The Cadet Hand is a very praiseworthy
organization; but it has a way, all itB
own, of playing right in front of the lec
ture room windows, as a result of which
demurrers, music and laud titles get
very much mixed up.
In looking up statistics in regard to
Iaw School matters Mr. Williams has
found that there arc about sixty-five stu
dents now enrolled, thirteen of whom
are graduates of colleges and universi
ties, and that seven stutes are repre
sented. One of our Seniors appeared on behalf
of the city in an amusing case in the po
lice court a few days ago, in which it
wus sought to punish a man for selling a
chicken that was too old for boarding
house purposes. Of course such a state
of facts could ijot be proved, and the of
fender was discharged.
We are pleased to note an increasing
interest in base ball at the University.
Several games have been arranged. We
expect to see some good ball played here
thiB year. Turn out boys and take a
hand in the practice. The manager is
looking for new material. You may be
the man he's looking for.
Field day will soon be here. To those
rrho are athletically inclined, we would
ay that this is about the time of the
year when the winnei s begin to train.
Make this year's record better than those
of the past. Come out ye athletes.
Start early and train aG if you meant
busineu. Don't let one oiganization
cany ofif all the honors this year. Each
society and fraternity should be repre
nted in as many events as possible.
What has become of that inter-state
athletic mret of which we heard so much
some time ago. If suitable financial in
ducement is offered, the University of
Nebraska will send her quota of athletes.
The board of dirctors of the jAthletic
association should cast about for some
means of paying its debts. A little ex
ertion is all that is needed to raise the
money. There are numerous alumni in
the city who would be glad to assist the
association. Doubtless Mr. Crawford
and two or three students would gladly
exchange their claims for cash.
Why not defeat the boys from Doanc
in the tennis tournament this year. All
we need is practice. We have enough
players and good grounds. Give us a
surprise this year, boys, ami see how we
The University nine went to Crete one
day last week. Fisher, Mathews, Sear
son. Graham, Talmadge, W. M. John
ston, Weaver, J. H. Johnston and Mc
Mullan were the players. It was a lively
game. The question is who won ?
H. Muriou Crawford is one of the
few American uuthors of any note who
can properly be called romanticists.
We say American advisedly, for Mr.
Crawford is neither a native of this
country nor has lie spent enough of his
life here to properly entitle him to the
name of an American writer. He has
chosen American subjects for but very
few of his stories, and not for His best,
by any means. Iu fact he has rather
slighted merica. lie has not shown a
due appreciation of the fact that this
country is rich in material for the nove
list. Perhaps it is from the very fact
that he i3 a romanticist that he has
chosen to lay his scenes in the old world,
for to be sure we have no ivy-covered
castles nor baronets, and our traditions
do not go back very far. Or perhaps it
is because of his education abroad that
he is so fond of dealing with foreign
characters and places. His intimate
knowledge of the life of a large part of
the civilized world has enabled him to
touch on certain phases of existence in
many countries. We are sometimes
tempted to think that he has sacrificed
reality and accuracy of detail to dra
matic effect, but the effect is usually so
good that we are little disposed to quar-1
rcl with the probability. We ure so in
terested in the hero or heroine that we
forget all our little modern Idias of real
ism for the lime and thoroughly enjoy
the story, His slvle is smooth, even
polished, and shows the effect of a care
ful and liberal education. Ho often
goes to extremes and displays n knowl
edge unnecessarily erudite, but the
greater marvel h that he has been able
In the course of an ordinary lifetime to
sec and absorb so much that most men
scarcely take time to read about. His
experience of German student and pro
vincial life furnished him the material
for "Greifensteln," his long residence in
Italy enabled him to write a series of
stories of Italian life, his experiences In
India prompted "Mr. Isaacs," his first
novel, and his extensive travels have
given him the inspiration for many
other works. He has yet to write a
thoroughly good American story.
