A movement is on foot whereby a
place In tho library will be set aside for

Is successful it will be a good thing.
Each fraternity represented' here can

that are of much Interest to students In

Friday evening the Union gave a re

Messrs. Seaman, Almyand Bessey, who
were elected to Phi Beta Kappa. The
hall was appropriately decorated. The
reception was informal and the com

their honored members were presented
to all. A short program had been
planned, but on account of the late
hour at which the collation was held at
the Lincoln hotel those who were ex
pected to speak could not come, so the
program was given up.
There will be a Joint debate in the
chapel Saturday evening between the
Union boys' debating olub and Doane
college. The question discussed will be
whether the contract entered Into last
February with the bond syndicate was
Justifiable or not. The Union boys will
endeavor to prove that it was not Jus
tifiable. A cordial Invitation Is ex
tended to everyone to come and hear
the debate. Messrs. Searson, Boomer,

Union boys debating club.

AT NIGHT, BY THE PLATTE
At night, by tho PJa te, in late July
Tiro river is shallow- nearly dry,
Tho willows hang dirk dn whtto moon
Under their leaves, jwlft flre-lUos bright
Are flajflving, charBin? to and fro
In golden flame nov high, now low.
A flsh, perchance, tliough silver spray
Leaps, sparkling-, In moon-fed ray.
In old dead grass, te crickets sins;
AU nature makes htof V. slkln ring.
The sand-snlpo peepsjat tho water's edge;
The coyote sneaks through itall, rank,
And grins as ho prowls and howls.
The trembling cries of screeching owls
Float slowly through h warm night' air,
Telling tho field-mouse 'Wha't to dare.
Once ta a while a duck scuds by,
At night, by tho PJatte, in late July.
JOSEPH ANDREWS SARGENT.
"Faust," an adaptation of Goethe's
Immortal poem, will be produced at the
Funke opera house on Wednesday ev
ening, February 26. Tho version given
by the Morrison company is the one
dramatized by BayJp Bernard of Lon
don. Tho scenery, all of which Is car
ried on "special cars, Is very extensive,
the public square of Nuremburg, Mar
guerite garden and the square of the
fountains being not only historically
correct, but most, beautifully painted.
However, the climax of scenery Is
reached In the fourth act, when tho
imps and goblins hold high carnival
on Walpurgis night, on the summit of
the Brocken, in the Harta mountains.
It is impossible to describe the weird
and uncanny flendlshneas which is
hero pontrayed as Mephisto, In his fiery
redness, accompanied by Faust, stands
on the peak of tho mountain, in the full
glaro of the mysterious light. From
tho darkened auditorium of the theatre
It is a grand and awe-inspiring scene,
and the detail is Infernally horrible.
Owls and bate and broomstick-riding
witches flit across the stage, frogs
croak omonig the rocks, while from tho
shady nooks crawl horrible shapes,
half human, hall fiendish. Tortured
souls cry out for release, aspiring de
mons climb tho heights and seem to
take a place beside the devil, who
stands on the apex of the rock and
hurls curses at them all. Anon the
shapes engage In a weird and hideous
dance, straining and listening botixnes
with harsh and dreadful sounds. Then
a bell is heard to ring the ongelus, and
Instantly the stage is clear, till down
the steep descent come pouring tho
forms of loot ones forced down to the
nether regions. It is not often, that
theatre-goers have an' opportunity of
witnessing such a performance as that
to be given by the Morrioon company,
and tthero should be a packed house.
