When it had become whispered about the halls (his morning thai a subscription list would be started for tho benefit of tho drouth suf ferers, every one was interested at once and wIhmi the time nunc the chapel was crowded to its fullest extent. Those who were not, there wi 1 probably not piny the sneak net, but for their benefit nnd for those who thought tliey would not like to put their nninas opposite the mnount they thought they were able to give, the chnneellor an nounced that the s'.ot in his door wa . in w. irking order, and any n eki 1 or dime that was dropped through would I e gratefully received by the little letterbox on the other side. In addressing the students the chancellor snid that when tome of the students enme to him and liroiched the in. liter, lie was only too glad to do all in his power to start and aid the movement. lie then introduced Senator Rnth- burn who represents that district from Colorado and New Hamp shire. He also explninel how it was possible for the relief eommis sion to purchase coal for SH) cents a ton, for which the individual would have to pay $ The same proportions in saving in many other necessities eould'be takenad vantaire of. The chancellor then asked every one, when he went home to dinner to hispeel carefully his closet ami bring down everything of any value which could be worn by some western sufferer, lie siid everything went, but they drew the liny at "one stocking." "While the subscription lists were being passed. Prof. Fosslor spoke of Mr, Ludilen and the work he was doiny, saying he was the whole relief commission himself.

As he had just come from that district, he had the mciics of suffering fresh in his mind, nnd his earnest pleading and descriptions, caused many a hand to go a little deeper in the pocket. He aid in part: "I have been called to tell you of the drouth dis trict from which I have just conic. It represents the saddest people in the state. In lsyo we had a total failure of crops. The two following years were fairly good ones, but in W.i.'J the failure was severely felt, and as you know the last year was a complete failure. Merchants have been driven out of business because the fanners could not pay their accounts. The merchants have trusted them relying upon the prospect of good crop-., but now all these accounts are worthless. No one can get credit there. The man who owns J(!o acres of land unincumbered cannot borrow a dol lar on it The people there have no grain, hay, provisions, or cloth ing. They do not know where the next meal is coming from. Think of the little children going bare foot in this kind of weather. They cannot go to school because they Imv.o no clothes to wear. From personal investigation I know that whatever is intrusted to Mr. Ludden, the secretary of the state rebel committee will bo properly distributed. There is positively no reason for complaint. Mr. Ludden was then intro duced. Ho ex )!ained how the dis tributing was ( one, how the com mittee Avere divided into county committees and those appointed subcommittees in each school dis trict and voting precinct. It is the office of these commit tees to in vestigate personally all people in need, and a written endorsement is tirst issued by members of this committee before any supplies would bo given to them.

I Next week the class in Uilanv !. (''classical botany1) will meet as usual in the botanical lecture room, on Thursdny the lecture will probably be somewhat shortened.

The annual course of lectures on Phylopnlncontology (FoiJ Bot any) which began on Mouthy of this week, is open to any win 'wish uiiiiiciHi. wneuier student or not. The lectures occur at J o'clock on Mondays and Wednesdays. () account of the meeting of the State Horticultural Society there will be no lecture on next' Wednesday.

Miss Jones has found a treasure which she considers more valuable than Captain Ividd's, or any bodv else's. For the last twenty years, more or less, a book of poems, written in 1MJ, has been in the library. It was treasured only for its antiquity until about a week ago. In some way Miss Jones happened to look at the i-(n side ways and discovered the picture of a landscape with boys nnd trees nnd cows nnd slice) nnd houses painted on the odirc of the leaves in wntor colors. The picture enn not be seen unless the pages arc rolled in a certain way, and Miss .Jones wouldn't sell it for a farm. Five books, which are probably of more practical value than any live books in the library have been added during the holidays. This set is a history for ready 'reference and topical reading. The books contain concise but complete arti cles on every subject which history has to do with, from Algebra to Omaha. The articles are taken from the best authorities, are up to date in every way. I n many cases different authors are quoted. Al together it is tho handiest and most practical thing in tho library. The annual meeting of the Inter state Football Association wns held at Omaha, Saturday, .January .Mh. lliM-e were present Fred 1 James, president, from Nebraska: Prof. Greene from Kansas; Breninor from Iowa, Manager Tcele of Ne braska wns also present. For some unaccountable reason Missouri was not represented and no explana tions were sent. Very little business was done on account of the absence of the dele gate from Missouri. The pennant was given to Nebraska. The pool ing of the Thanksgiving games was discussed long and earnestly. Ne braska and Iowa have always ad vocated pooling these games be 'uise the attendance at the Kansas City game is much larger than that at the 0m ilia game. Missouri and Kansas hive contended against the pooling as it lessened their profits to divide with the others. Prof. Greene said he was very sure lh-it Missouri would never "consent to pooling, and he knew Kansas did not wish to submit. No conclusion was reached. The question as to whether Kan sas should refund to Nebraska the ''ticket mono'," was then consid ered. Nebraska domiaulcd it. Prof. UYcHittT ttjftv-Ui - citsjiiattti ie-of Kansas, said that, personally, he believed Nebraska should have it, but that his association did not wish to pay it. Iowa was unwill ing to decide the question alone. For that reason the matter was laid over until Missouri should be present. Officers for the eiisuinir vciir were elected as follows: President, l-mrraboo, ol Iowa; A'ice-president, Tefl'ts. of Nebraska. Kansas and Missouri have not elected their men for the other offices yet. The meeting then adjourned to meet Saturday, .January luth, at the same place. It is to be hoped that all the colleges will be repre sented at this meeting. Very little could be done before ou.acco'uiit of the abenco of Missouri. On no account should the, latum u. which mis uone so much to encourage their friends a de ightful s , ing party at the lie km -dno.di night. The in n:i was urrfvi. After one of the best tim ' uu igin able nt the boieh, when it wns be ginning to grow late, and the skat ers beginning to grow weary, Miss llarley escorted the party to her home, where a most delicious spread awaited them. The rest of the evening was spent in dancing. That Miss llarley is a capital host ess is the opinion of all present. Happy New Year was the greet ing of scores of young men at the home of Miss Cochran on .January first when the young hostess kept "open house,"' assisted by Misses Clara Wat kins nnd Marion Smith. The reception was informal, the y'img ladies wearing street dresses, but was none the less enjoyable on that account. The rooms were prettily decorated with roses and potted plants. During the afternoon refreshments of 'sand wiches, coffee, and cake were served. The young men who went the rounds on New Years declare the call at Miss Cochran's one of the jolliest of the afternoon. On New Years day Miss Sadie Burnhain celebrated her return from school at Andovor. Msis. bv a very pleasant reception at her uoine. rsiie was assisted by Misses Georgie Camp, Agnes Sewell, and Ella Kaymond. The house was darkened and the rooms lilled with soft light, showing the evening dresses of the girls 'to the greatest advantage. A profusion of flow ers decorated the rooms, and sinilax wreathed the, iln'ir-wiv and festooned the chandeliers. Miss Willoughby's orchestra fur nished sweet music during the af ternoon. In the dining room re freshments wore served.

Of course nothing definite can bo said concerning the prospect for the university from the legislature now insession. There is nothing but. friendly spirit, in both houses of the legislature and a disposition on the part of all members to do whatever they can the condition of tho state careful ly considered. Senator MeKeeby of "Webster has taken the initiative by introducing senate file No. 87, which provides for a special levy of one-half mill for a period of two years to be used for building purposes. This idea lias already met with favor, and the request is so reasonable that it is thought the bill will readily pass. So far the state has given only $2o,000 to the university for building purposes. The remainder has come from funds which should be held sacred for instructional pur poses and current expenses. The levy amounts to 50 cents on a valuation of 1,00, which will amount to $SO,000 for each of the two years. This amount will complete the library building and leave enough for the erection of a recitation hall. If tho measure passes, bids will bercccived and tho contract let to have the librnrv fully completed by September 1st. The bill is in this form: MM Mil 11 ,i i iiere wilwul icvicu iirion tlio A - 1 ?

One of the least known nnd most important of classes carried on at the university is Miss Jones' Jones' class in libraiy training. Tho subject originated Avilh Mr. Dewey, of tho capitol li brary at Al ban'. The regents of the University of New York recog nized its importance to tho extent of granting degrees to college graduates who completed the coursein library economy. Miss Jones is of those. The class con sists of ten advanced students, who are very quick and apt in the var ious dennrments of librarv work.
