Tho matter of deciding upon hours for athletic practice in tho gymnasium Is a difficult ono as all poriods seem full.

Those poriods aro 12:15 to 12:45 and IJ to 0:30. Some ovening hour can probably bo arrangod for special praotlco. This is tho tlmo for thoso who aro interested in ath lotlcs to show their Interest by register ing in tho gymnasium, for ono or both of thoso hours. All tlio necessary ex pense that will bo involved will bo for a pair of gymnasium shoes. Good shoos can bo obtained at tho Sandor-son-Davls store for So cents.

Wednesday night a crowd of boys met -Jn tho chapel to start out for n serenading tour. Although it Is not exactly tlio tlmo of year whon sere nades aro supposed to grow in abund ance, yet the night was mild and pleas ant enough tc make outdoor singing enjoyable. The boys were all mou singing on tho gleo club this year or some previous year so it did not take muoh tilmo to got a dozon or moro songs dn shapo. To say thoy had a glorious tlmo would bo putting It mildly, Judg ing from all accounts, and as each fol low gives a different story 4t Is rattier hard to furnish a wnoot.li nnrrntlvo. About tho third houso thoy struck wns dnrk, but a reil-hondod servant sltiolc hor bond out of tlio third story window so tlio boys stopped and gavo hor a song, nnywny. At ono of tho numer ous houses tho occupants onmo out and sat on tlio porch to onjoy tho concert and woro so nppreolatlvo Hint tho fol lows sung ovory song In tholr ropor tolro. At nnothor plnco thoy serenaded a girl who lived 1n ono of a row of ter races and one of tho sorenadors swears that every blamed window In tho ter raco wns oponod boforo thoy finished tholr first number, Thoy nlso struoU Captain Gullfoylo and tho chancellor's.

THE CAUSE OF IT. A decided explosion shook Lincoln until sho rattled last Friday night. A satisfactory reason for tho noise has not yot boon given. Professor Barbour adhoros to tlio bollof that It was a meteorite and porslsts in keeping his oyos flxod upon tho ground in tho hope of saving tho pieces. A. J. Woavor was roposlng peace fully at Falls City and denies tho alle gation that ho was making a political speech at 'tho tlmo. Professor Fosslor's wheel is still In tact, and ho could not have fallon therefrom. Culver remains in good physical condition which does not gtvo evidence that ho fell from tho roof of Nobraska hall. Missouri withdrew from the football loaguo about that time, but close in vestigation falls to make the two ovonts simultaneous. Tho whoroabouts of tho "Dean" at that hour woro unknown. Ills rota tion to ttio Incident consequently can not bo doflndtoly traced. Tho only romalnlng possibility which could causo such a commotion is tlio fact that McMal dropped "something" heavy and cumbersome about that time. You will find good warm undorwear at tho vory lowest prices at the Ewlng Clothing Co., 1115-1117 O street. Burlington's personally conducted excursions to Utah and California. A Pullman tourist sleeping car will leave Lincoln every Thursday at 12:15 .p. m. for Denver, Salt Lake, Ogden, San FranclRco and Los Angeles.
