under tho direction of Prof. Loes,
but this time there is to be a dif
ferent mode of truvol introduced.
This your Prof. Lees expects to
undertake a tour of tho British
Islos on wheels!
A better stretch of couutry for
wheelinon than England is hard
to bo found. All the roads aro
paved there, aud aro as level as a
floor. Fifteen miuutos after a rain
there, the roads aro as dry as they
wero before. Tho advantages a
wheelman would possess over his
fellow traveler deprived of such a
convenience, aro innumerable. He
is ablo to got at those places less
often visited, and which have not
been traveled to death. Ho can
go aud come as ho pleases, and can
visit interesting aud famous old
spots which would otherwise be
Prof. Lees is unprepared to say
how many ho will take with him
but places the limit at eight or
or nine. Tho cost to each one if
all is favorable, will amount to
about S200 or possibly 250. This
will be decided after the party is
formed. Considering tho hard
times, there is some doubt ex
pressed as to whether the trip will
really be taken this year or not,
but everything points to tho fact
that it wilL It is expected, that
by the last of April tho party will
be made up, and every body who
has any intention of going should
see Prof. Lees at an early date.
He is ready to answer any further
questions, and is anxious to know
who aro going, or want to go.
The party will leave Lincoln
about the middle of June. They
will not attempt to do any bicycle
riding this side of the ocean but
will go direct to the coast and take
the Liverpool line for Queenstowu.
Blarney Castle will be the first
point of interest they will make.
Killarney, the center of an inter
esting bit of country will be
reached and then the i arty will
zigzag across Ireland to the north
east through Cork, Limerick and
Tipperary counties. Doublin will
be taken in, then they will proceed
north to Londonderry and the
Giants' Causeway; thence to Bel
fast and by boat to Andros San in
From here a few miles south

going through the Burns1 country
to Glasgow, Dumbarton and Bal
loch, Ben Lomond will be climbed
after a trip across the Loch Lo
mond; Inversnaidto Loch Katrine,
across this lake through the Tros
sacks, a day or two's wheeling in
this neighborhood, then south to
Sterling and then Edinburgh will
be reached. From this point such
historic places aB Melrose Abbey,
Abbotsford, the home of Sir Wal
ter Scott and the battle field of
Bannochburn will be reached;
tb en wheeling south through the
country made famous by Scott, the
party will land in the Cheviot
Hills of England.
After Newcastle has been reach
ed, the tourists will zigzag i'rom
north to south acrosB England,
making Loudon tlie objective
point. Proin Newcastle they will
go through Durham to York,
thence to Loods and Manchostor,
Liverpool, Ohoator and Hawardon
Oastlo, tho homo of Gladstone.
Thonco North Wales to Shrews

ham and Lemington, tho center of
tho Shakespeare country. About
horo Konillworth, Rugby, Strat-ford-on-Avon,
Coventry and War
wick, thon oithor Cambridge or
Oxford will be visited. From horo
London will finally be reached.
Several excursions outafow miles
will be made from hero, taking in
Windsor, Greenwich, Woolwich,
Crystal Palace and Canterbury.
Any of tho pnrty desiring to take
the expense of a trip to Paris for
a week, can do so from hero and
meet tho party boforo they return
homo. They will sail back either
from Autwerp or Southampton
over tho American line. The pro
fessor expects to get his part' back
to Lincoln by tho middle of Sep
tember. Students' Recital.
The pupils of the University
conservatory of music gave their
third public recital Wednesday
night in the chnpel of tho univer
sity. A good audience was there
to greet the young musicians.
While it was not expected that
these students should play as well
as professionals, yet as a general
thing they played with intelligence
and brains. They did not turn
out music by the yard in a color
less and expressionless ummer as
many beginners do.
The first number was a piano
solo by Miss Annie Stuart. She
played Bitter's "Poacher's Song"
and did well, considering that it
was the first thing on the pro
gram. Miss Myrtle Bitchey next
gave two piano numbers. One
"Solpegietto" by Bach and the
They were peculiar little things
A song by Albert A. Kendall
next followed. He sang Schu
berts "Who is Sylvia," in a pleas
ing manner. The two movements
of Beethoven's Sonata in F minor
were played by little Miss May
Belle Hagenow. She played with
ease and naturalness and was
Miss Clara M. Spencer in her
song ''Tell Me My Heart," was a
little nervous and her timidity de
tracted somewhat from the effec
tiveness of her song.
The gavotte for twelve violins
was one of the pleasant little feat
ures of the program. Those tak
ing part were Nellie Schlesiuger,
Dorothea Canfield, Mabel Bennet,
May Belle Hagenow, Theodora
Bates, Elbe Pruitt, Alice Cleaver,
Mamie Hutchiugs, Valborg Lar
son, Ixa Ensign, Lillian Post, and
The last number on the pro
gram was a piano solo by Miss
Emma V. Snelliug. She played
a delightful little Berceuse by
Chopin. Her playing was ex
ceedingly pleasing. She succeeded
in bringing out the singing qual
ity of the piano in a good manner.
Her technique was good and she
succeeded in making the little
Berceuse a very pleasing number.
Drawings for next year's an
nual will be in order from now
on. All people who can draw
are requested to get their brains
in action, as well as their pencils,
and help make Sombrero, Vol. 4,
a howling success. Do not think
it is too early, but come in and
avoid tlie rush. If you have any
bright ideas, whether you can
draw or not, bring them in.

KANSAS CITY THE PLACE
Movement Starlet! nnd Expenses
Guaranteed for a Track Toam-
Torms of tho Proposition.
Fred Barnes received a letter
this week from Noal S. Durand of
the Kansas City Air Lino Street
Railway company, wishing to
know tho feeling in the Athlotic
club in regard to an inter-state
athletic meet among the stale
univorsities of Missouri, Kansas,
and Nebraska, at Kansas City.
Mr. Durand stated that Kansas
and Missouri had been offered ex
penses and would probably accept.
He intimated that tho presence of
a track team from Nebraska would
come for their expenses.
Mr. Barnes has written to Kan
sas City for particulars, aud will
bring this matter before the Ath
letic association Saturday. That
there has been a revival in Uni
versity athletics was plainly
shown in last fall's foot-ball dem
onstrations. Now there is no
reason why this interest in ath
letics should not extend to other
branches besides foot-ball. This
is an excellent opportunity to pro
mote track athletics, and every
thing thpt is possible ought to be
done lo arrange for this interstate
All students interested in ath
letics are requested to take up
this affair, and do all in their
power to make it a success.
If this proposition is adopted,
it is possible that our field-day
exercises will be abandoned, or
else we will have the same events
as at tho interstate meet, thus giv
ing our men a trial at them.
C. B. B.
News came last week that the
Pettibone company of Ciuciuatti
which made the cadet uniforms
had failed. All unfilled orders
will be attended to at once, how
ever. Judging from present indica
rions the battallion encampment
will be held at Omaha. The
"Omaha club" is doing some earn
est work in that direction and
hope to get up a good subscription
to help pay the expenses of the
cadets while in camp. It is quite
evident from the support given
this movement that all of our
Omaha citizens do not regard the
University as "Rosy" does.
Of course the main objection
the average cadet has for camp
is the expense. Apropos of this
fact btatistics were looked up. It
wns found that the actual number
of hours drilled by the corps of
cadets is by far greater than the
number of hours drilled by tho
whole National guards of the
state. There is an appropriation
for the expenses of, the N. N. G.
when in camp. Wiry should not
the corps of cadets get a part of
this for their encampment?
Glee Club Officers.
Monday night the Glee club
met for the purpose of adopting a
constitution and electing officers.
A constitution and by-laws were
drawn up, which waB a great deal
like that of last year.
S. H. Martin was elected presi
dent, Geo. Porter, secretary, and
ChaB. Jones, librarian. The con
stitution provided for the creation
of a new office that of an assist
ant xliroctor. This is a very im
portant ollico, for since Mr. Boose
cannot bo at rohersala rogularly,
tho groator part of tho work of
drilling tho club must fall on tho
assistant. Mr. Carl Tucker was
chosen to take this office and ho
began drilling thorn at once. Ho
has been so far so successful in
getting good work out of tho club
that ho wili, in all probability,
have tlie entire direction of the.
club for tho rest of tho year. Mr.
Reese is still tho business man
ager. Tho club will givo thoir
concert horo sometime after the
middle of next mouth and will
go on the tour with tho banjo
club soou after.
A One Hundred and Fifty Dol
lar Medal for the Best Essay.
At tho late congress of the na
tional society of tho Sous of the
American Revolution, it was de
cided to offer to sixteen leading
colleges of the United States a
handsome silver medal, to be
awarded in each college annually
to tho writer of tho best essay
upon the "Principles Fought For
in tho War of tho Revolution."
Students in the University of Ne
braska will have an opportunity
of contesting for this medal, for
one of them is to be placed with
that institution every year. Tho
prize essays of all the colleges, for
which silver medals have been
granted, will bo collected, and the
national society, acting officially,
will award to the one they deem
of the greatest merit, the grand
prize of a gold medal, worth $150.
The result of the first competition
will be known this year imme
diately after the June commence
ments. Judge Ambrose Speaks.
Tuesday evening a very able
address was delivered in the
Chapel to the students of the law
school and the Lincoln bar by
Judge Ambrose of Omaha. Chief
Justice Norval, Justices Harrison
and Post of the Supreme court
together with the court commis
sioners were present Randolph
McNitt of Webster county was
first inti"oduced and spoke freely
of the growth of the law school.
He was a student in the unversity
at the organizing of the law
school and was interested in its
Judge Reese then introduced
the speaker of the evening. Jud'e
Ambrose first mentioned the
"so Ions on the hill" and hoped
that the time would soon come
when they would spend a little
more money for the education of
the youth of this commonwealth
and not so much for useless things.
He then took up his bubject prop
er, "The Law and the Lawyers."
He showed that the law, the real
law, was the same yesterday, to
day, and forever. The principles
of law do not change. The speaker
reviewed me growtu of the law,
showed the true position of a law
yer as regards himself, his client,
and the state. The true judge
was portrayed. The power and
importance of a lawyer in a com
munity and in the state was illus
trated. In closing, Mr. Ambrose
exhorted those who had chosen
thiB high calling to remember that
they were citizens as well as law
yers, and in their bands rested
Prof. Adams will lecture before
the Christian Association Sunday
afternoon at three o'clock. His
Bubject is "Justice."
