Tho Unions and Palladians gac
special programs last evening.
'I he attendance was large both hails
being crowded to their utmost ca
pacity. The Palladians were late in gel
ting started owing to the difficulty
in handling the crowd. The first
number on the program was a
" Double Frontispiece" represent
ing the " Death of Virginia " and
"The Slave Mart." These tab
leaux were very well arranged and
the costumes and posings of the
young ladies took very well with
Miss O'Connell then read a very
interesting essay on "The District
School."' Miss O'Connors vivid
discription of the school brought
back to many the days of old. Miss
Ingersoll and Miss Kcdford then
favored the audience with a piano
The recitation of Miss Wheeler
'The Knight and the Page" was
excellent in every particular. This
was followed by the vocal duet of
Misses Thompson and Pollard
which was well received. "Three
ways of putting it" were the
French, German, and Americ.in
national hymns in the original.
The vocal solo of Miss Getner sur
prised her old society friends who
lad not had the pleasure of hearing
lcr sing before. The first nart of
tho program was closed Iry Miss
Bullock who read an original poem.
The second part of the program
was eagerly looked forward to
b' many who expected to get
"roasted." The first of thee "ad
vertisements" was "Lost a cap."
This represented a typical scene
in the girls' cloak room. It was
followed l3r " Wanted Member
ship in the University Union."
Whether the "Old Maids' were
throwing out hints to the Pal boys
to do their duty, or whether they
intended to represent life in the
Union society was hard to tell.
"Wanted A room-mate," repre
sented another phase of "What is
home without a mother?" Wel
den's boarding house did not es
cape. The rush of the co-eds for
dinner was true to life.
The chancellor's letter on econ
omy was amply illustrated to the
audience. The Athletic association,
the Nerraskan, the Delian society
and the fraternities were all no
ticed in connection with this letter.
The program closed with "How
to bo beautiful," represented by
the glowing countenances of the
P. G. 1). C. The secret of their
beauty was given away in their
motto, "Use Howard's Face
Bleach." The program was in
terspersed throughout by music
from the Ideal Mandolin Club.
The young ladies of the Palla

gratulated on tho success of their
The following names were pro
posed for membership to tho Palso:

SPECIAL PROGRAM AT THE UNION.
The introductory number was a
well rendered solo Warren's Fare

Tho first chapter of tho contin
ued story of tho evening was then
read ,by Miss Pound. Tho effect
of tins was evident when tho
boys on tho back row turned up
their collars, shivered and shrank
into as narow a space as possible,

when fate compels him to stand
alone near the haunted house.
Even the stoutest man quailed be

After Mr. Abbott had lei the twins

twins and he close I with .Johnny
hanging disconsolately by his coat

while the moon looked down with
a jackal smile.
Asa relief from this closing har
rowing scene in tho third chapter,
an old farmer and his wjfe discuss
the arrival of a neighbor donas
Vale and son, formerly addicted to
wandering s-d and lone, latter to
"play in the pianner." Of course
iho old farmer had a dauglitur lie-,

of his defeat he s:ands in the corn

with comical effect mutters "Must

fine hits with household scenes,

furniture with his hair curling

shriek that came from the haunted
house of chapter one. Then Jones
rushes forth lamenting his fate,
being the slave of his wife's cook
ing, muttering the oft-repealed,
"Must it bo thus oh, thou ruler
of the universe."
To relieve tho harrowed feelings
of tho audience Mr. Cameron sang
a solo, and this was responded to
by ono equally well rendered by
Miss Myrllo Field.
Mr. Nowbranch then proceeded
to massacre tho needless twju,
Peter, the pie-woman, and Pris
