There is a growing demand for
llie opening of tho library on S:il
iirduy evening, which is hecoining
ing niort' and inoro emphatic each
week. To ho sure, it is open
nearly all day Saturday hut thoro
aro many who have outside work
during the day-time, and who ean
not enjoy this advantage. When
eaeh one of a history class of over
one hundred must spend on an
average live hours a week read
ing certain hooks contained in the
library, surely these volumes
should be accessible to the student
at every moment possible.
Tho only reason given why the
library is not opened Saturday
evening is the shortage of funds.
The present force has all it ean at
tend to at present, but the cost of
keeping a monitor for four hours
longer is certainly very trilling
when compared to the amount of
good to bo obtained from the use
of tho library for this time. We
do not possess so very many ad--.
"g"- l"t-vhat WHwhiwiliould
not be allowed to stand idle. Its
tho same old cry of "appropri
ation " but it seems we ought to
have this, without going to the
state government for it.
Why should not tho university
formal! adopt a pin or emblem of
some kiwR Some of tho students
aro wearing one kind of badge,
some another, and n largo number
none at all. Ncnrtyull the western
universities are adopting emblems.
Kansas, Iowa, and Wisconsin are
following this custom and already
have committees at work. Why
should the University of Nebraska
bo behind? In Iowa a committee
of tho senior class was appointed to
meet Avith like committees from
the other classes and form a com
mittee of the whole for tho pur
pose of adopting a university em
blem. This is one way to secure
it. A mass meeting of the whole
studont-body might bo hold and
tho subject discussed. If it were
deemed advisable to adopt some
plan of this kind, a committee
could bo appointed to get designs,
obtain prices and report at another
mass meeting. There is no reason
why this subject should not, at
least, be considered.
The Nkhkaskax hastens to cor
rect a mistake that was made in
our last issue in tho report of tho
foot ball game. Spooner did not
fumble tho ball, but fell on it when
it was fumbled by a Missouri
playor. Wo are sorry tho mistake
occurred, as it places Mr. Spooner
in a rather bad light. This was
his first game with tho regular
cloven, and his work at quarter
was of tho best sort and his play
ing has not yet boon equaled by
anyone who has played that posi
tion on the team with tho excep
tion of tho coach.
In tho full of MM when interest
in athletics was much less than it
is now, a series of class games in
foot-ball was instituted. A great
deal of interest was taken in these
games, and after several very in
teresting contests tho Seniors won
the ponnanl. What has since be
come of that pennant wo have not
learned; but foot ball contests be
tween tho classes have not since
made their appearance,
should not be,
played in nearly all tho large col
leges. They increase the interest
in foot ball and help bring out the
material there is in tho school. Al
though it is too Into to commence
these games this year, they should
bo encouraged and started early
Now look-a-hore fellows, we're
going to hold over again next week
and get a report of the Kansas
game. W e did all rigid last time,
but the experience will probably
help us some, so that by 7 o'clock
you can have your paper with
about a column ami a half or two
columns about the game. Now
you know it takes a whole lot of
love and something else to do this,
but we're here to see that every
thing is done right. Now see that
you help us out a little. It's a lit
tle bit harder on us, if we do not
win, than on anybody else. You'd
better come down to the Uni a
week from to-morrow evening any
way, prepared to do some tall
The sophmores are politely re
quested to get up and do some
thing. You have decided to hold
a social, see that it is a success.
The mere handful that was present
at the class meeting, held some time
ago, is not at all encouraging to
rhDso who havoli little class spirit,"
and when they determine to do any
thing, do it with a vim and energy
which carries success with it. If a
member of tho committee aks you
tt) take part in the program don't
refuse by giving some trilling ex
cuse, but surprise .somebody by
coming out and show what you
can do. Let all sophomores bend
their energies toward making the
coining entertainment a success.
The enterprise of Tin-: Ni
uitASKAN surprised the oldest in
habitants last Saturday evening,
when they read a detailed account
of the football game before 8
o'clock. Heretofore, it has been
the custom of some one, to got a
private telegram at night rale,
some where in the neighborhood
of ii o'clock. This is very unsatis
factory to say the least. Now to
show that our enterprise is appre
ciated let every one do tho right
thing you know what that means.
A mooting of tho freshman class
is called for this afternoon at half
past one o'clock. Lot every one of
the class of 'US be present. Thoro
is no excuse for any one not at
tending his class meetings. Yet
it's dollars to doughnuts that it is
the one who never attends his class
mooting, who does all tho kicking bo
cause certain resolutions aro passed
ami oflicors elected. Lot this one
bo presont, and ho will havo a voice
in influencing these things.
Now that election is over and po
litical rallies out of tho way lot us
settlo down to good hard work.
Free-silver and tho Utrill should bo
laid upon tho shelf and a few text
books taken down. Politics should
bo ruled out of debates and public
speaking and everybody will bo relieved.
The geological department has
just received from Ari.ona a box
having "danger" printed all over
it. It was enclosed in two thick
nesses of wire netting for additional
safety. Then to protect the ex
press agents from danger of tho
poisonous reptile within, a rude
polo was attached across the box
to upright supports by which the
box could be handled with safety.
When tho wire was removed ami
the box opened it was found to
contain a specimen of the deadly
gilla monster, or llelodorma llor
ridum. This is tho largest lizard
found in the United States. Its
teeth aro grooved like the poisonous
fangs of the rattle-snake. Its color
like that of most animals is very
marked and brilliant, so that its
prey may be apprised of its deadly
approach. Like the Prineton fool
ball liond its coat is orange and
black. It is studdet with bony
ossicles which render it almost in
vulnerable. The native Indians dread this
lizard above all tho venomous rep
tiles of their region. They believe
it capable of poisoning the air. This
belief arises from the fact that the
gilla monster, wishing to alarm an
paproachingfoe, blows violently in
the dust, raising a little cloud
around it which alarms four-footed
beasts and man alike. Professor
Shuefeldt, of Washington, in ex
perimenting with this reptile, was
bitten. According to his descrip
tion of tho venomous nature, it is
only by skilled medical assistance
the unfortunate can be saved. At
the time of his accident, though
bitten simply on the linger, before
he could reach a neighboring of
fice in the National museum reeled
and fell, under tho venomous infill
once. He was secured by a doctor
occupying an adjoining ollioe.
An etl'ort is being made tt) keep
this lizard alive. It is fed on
boiled eggs. It seizes the egg ex
actly as if it wore a live thing,
shakes it, gulps it part way, then
shakes it again, to make sure the
prey has been overcome.
A new wire cage has been built,

on exhibition in the state museum
as long as they survive.
