The good resulting from tho use of tho
ltabeook milk test and scales will be
thoroughly demonstrated. With these ap
pliances It Is easy to determine the exact
per cent of butter fat contained In tho
milk from each cow. As statistics show
that a quarter of tho cows are kept at a
loss, this Is of great Importance to a dairy
man, lie knows in tins way wnat enen
cow Is doing for him, and can dispose of
those that arc losing him money, and
also be constantly Improving the breed of
his nnlmnls.
Tho agriculture department like all
others of the university, Is open to wo
men. A list of alternate studies having
been prepared for them, as they will prob
ably wish to substitute them for certain
studies In tho regular course. The alter
nate studies are; food, Its nature and pre
paration; cleonlnr mechnnlcal and chem
ical, and general care of the house from
a sanitary point of view.
A. It. Hneker a skilled Instructor has
been secured to take charge of the dairy
school. Prof. T. L. Lyon, the head of
tho agricultural department, has been
untiring In his efforts to make this new
branch a success, and It promises to be
come one of tho most practical branches
In th whole university.

It Is Indeed commendable that so much

The chapel was comfortably tilled las;
Saturday, by a music loving audience, who
came to hear the famous Russian pianist. J
Tho artist fully met the expectations of
his audience. They appreciated his won
derful technlc, his great versatility, and
marvelled a; the dexterity with which he
made the Instrument respond to his touch.
The only criticism that could be offered,
is that he was a little too classical for a
majority of .he audience, and to them the
program became a little tedious.

his religious tenets, excited no little cur

much to dissipate .he prejudices to Mor-

The rather obstreperous meeting In the
, ' "
.uuxweu ciuo &auiniay evening nas oeen
thoroughly aired In the columns of the
Journal and other mediums. It Is suffi- I
clem to observe that most absolute ns
tonlshment prevails among the law au
thorities that there should be a marked
difference of opinion on any question
among the students of the law depart
ment. One even admitted in the seclusion
of private conversation that some had for
gotten themselves so far In the heat of
Saturday night's discussion ns to behave
little better than the more refined of the
other clubs of the university. All feel
confident that at the next meeting the
matter will be amicably adjusted.
The Y. M. C. A. glee club becomes dally

night they were well received by a large

The club was organized by a number of

Mrs. Manning's Elocution Recital
Draws Quite an Attendance.
Ably Assisted by a Detachment of tho
Pershing Utiles, Jt Proved a Orent
Success Timely Arrlvnl of
a Cheesy Crowd.
Tho ehnpol was lilted last night with a
great many people who cannot bo found
on deck at the sumo place at 10 o'oloek
every morning. Mrs. Manning's recitals
havo grown In popularity during tho past
year until now thoro Is a very largo class
of pcoplo that looks forwaixl to (heso ex
hibitions with no little expectation, Tho
performance Inst night possessed tho
smoothness which character:es all the ro
cl.als given In this department. After two
admirably rendered recitations and a
number of taking musical numbers, tho
ovent of the evening came oil In tho Bhnpo
1 of a play called "The dialing Dish Tar-
ty." This was a great event for a number
j of reasons. In tho llrst placo It was ab
j solutcly the llrst uppcaranco upon tho
stage of llertrand KIdd Imgworthy. It
was a sort of "coming out" and tho
youthful thesplan acquitted himself nobly.
Ho was specially good when ho sat down.
He was good when he stood up oo, but
he was simply great when he sat down.
iie has a large future before him.
i tho second place It was the nrst ap-
,cnrance of Jesse Rowe, In nnythlng as
light as farce. Ho has been known as
tho piercing tenor In tho McKlnley glco
club, ns the unscrupulous politician, and
as the general and willing clave in geol
ogy lab. Ho Is as much at home on the
stage as he Is off and his friends will real
ize that this Is saying a great deal. Ho
j Gave a most life llko portrayal of the part
of an abused married man. He received
no flowers.
Just before the play, rhero filed in a het
erogeneous mob of nondescripts, com
manded by "Parm" and ably and con
stantly aided by "Windy" Hyde. They
had swiped about a bushel of cheese at
J the armory and they began to throw

i sensation of sitting down stairs at a show
had a wonderful effect on them and at
times It was hard to tell in which end of
the chapel the largest show was going on.
Other members of the cast did their
Iarts in a most commendable fashion.
Annie Anderson was a great success as
the maid. Mr. Shreve as Bob Yardsley
was all that could be expected. He was
supposed to give an Imitation of a scrub
chef cooking a meal, when he didn't know
a thing about It. He did It thoroughly and
anyone who saw him monkeying with the
chafing dish would have sworn that he
didn't know what he was doing. When
the play was ended everyone was more
than satisfied In every' particular.
Thus far this year little has been done
by tho glee club In tho way of public en
tertainment, but shortly after the Christ
mas holidays, a concert will be given,
which accodlng to reports will be well
worth hearing.
Under tho effllcient leadership of Profes
sor Kimball, the club Is progressing very
satisfactorily and Is learning many songs
of a bright nnd catchy chaiacter, and In
addition are being taught some new drills
by Harry Reese. With me return of H. S.
Evans, the parts are all well filled and
rounded out.
