Notice tne announcement of the
School of Alusic in this number.
Will teachers who receive a copy
of this paper, after looking it over,
kindly sec that it falls into the hands
of pupils who migftt be interested in
the School of Mechanic Arts or the
Agricultural School? It will help to
raise the standard of Nebraska's in
dustrial and agricultural interests.
Tho university authorities arc putting
forth special efforts to systematize thor
ough courses In the schools of mechanic
arts and agriculture. Both of theso
schools nro closely connected with the
work of the university proper. They offer
courses of Instruction, primarily for those
who are expecting to take up some par
ticular line of trade and have limited edu
cational advantages. There are a large
number of young mn In the state who
have neither the time nor the money to
improve the advantages which a full
course at the university affords. It Is
theso young men who should have the op
portunity of acquiring a practical educa
tion. And It Is needless to say that tho
above schools are easily within the reach
of all and will fit the students for some
useful position. The wisdom of greater di
versity of Industrial Interests Is apparent
on every hand. How may this end be ac
complished? Not otherwise than by giv
ing the boys of the stnto n practical edu
cation. The time has come when the suc
cessful farmer or mechanic must havo
some knowledge of the scientific princi
ples underlying their respective callings.
Tho agricultural school offers to tho stu
dent a practical course of study and ex
periments which will be of value to him
when he returns to the farm. The oppor
tunities which these two schools offer
should be made known to the young men,
and they will not fall to appreciate them.
This extension In our curriculum has been
long desired. Tho field that la now opened
to the industrious young men Is some
thing of which the state of Nebraska may
justly be proud. The chancellor and the
faculty are to be commended In their
earnest efforts to make tho school of
agriculture and mechanic arts open with
brighter prospects at the beginning of
the ensuing year.
Many of the members of the present sen
ior class are fitting themselves to teach
school. This Is somthlng that It Is desir
able and Indeed praiseworthy. There has
been a long felt need of teachers In the
district and high schools of tho state, who
aro at the fore In the most advanced and
thorough methods of Instruction. The
four years' college training certainly en
ables the energetic student to understand
and apply the most fruitful results In ped
agogy. There Is a science In teaching
bg well ns in any particular branch of
study. It Is time that this truth be real
ized and put In practice among the youth
of our state. The character of the stu
dents who enter tho university, their
standing In scholarship, and their ele
mentary training depends In a large de
gree upon the discipline which the high
school teacher Is able to Inculcate In their
minds. Te school boards of our state
ahould bo sensible of the need of the most
thorough and Kclontiflo mothods of In
struction. Nowhere Is this more Impor
tant than In our public sohools. Tho fac
ulty appreciate ta fact, especially If tlioy
real Uo their Instruction has borne any
fruit. The ncnloni who nro preparing to
teach, aro certainly wIho In urging tho
noceHslty of reoognlxlng those who aro
most fitted for tho advanced methods of

No tlmo fr.r love, suvo lovo of books,
The Goddess Wisdom, I shall court,
And ciipld, with your shaft and bow.
Must seek another Held for sport.
All frivolous things I now abjure,
My mind Is set on higher things,
The Holds of science I'll explore
And taste the sweets that knowledge
So get you gone, you roguish ulf.
:or come to haunt me any more;
These weighty problems must bo solved,
llegotio you riiciil, there's the doorl
Alas the time drags wearily
These prosy books aro awful dry;
In youth Its hard to toll and strive
And let the happiest days go by;
1 tiro or siiniy, nigiit ami day,
Tne science nn dreadful boros.
And mathematics dull and slow
And this old Latin nearly floors
Me every day when I'm In class:
'TIs recreation that 1 need
Ah. there's sly Cupid at tho door
'Come In, you're welcome sir, Indeed.
No moro my studies weigh mo down
I'll be a senior In u year.
And through tlu fogs that hnvo obscured
1 now can see my pathway clour;
1'vo passed the time of drudgery,
And now am voted quite a sport,
I always dress In latest stylo
And pay the most assiduous court
To giddy, gay society,
Dour Cupid long has been my friend,
Ho makes himself jit homo with mo
I hope he'll stay so, till the end.
At last I've reached the hlghost goal,
I've loft my musty books behind
My domp of thought ! nonrlv full
Of wit of every style and kind,
I soon shnll seek the wider world.
To gain fortune and a name.
And leave the dear old college halls.
To meet the great world's praise or
Hut 1 shall not go out nlone.

The brick stirred ever so slightly In Its
bed of mortar. "Ouch," grated the mor

"I didn't twist." sharply retorted the
brick. "It's you that's twisting and grind

"Come, come," croaked the mortar,
pushing off a little fragment detached
from Its outer roughness, and medltavely

pavement below. "We have been too long
together to begin to quarrell now."
"Well didn't you begin It?"
"When I was -oft and suseeptlblo In
my Impressionable youth" continued tho
mortar, not heeding the Interruption, "and
this crackling old wall stood straight by
the mason's plumet, and hidden Ills were
unknown to this ghostly pile, and before
the dank night winds drew their devil
music through Its toad breeding bowels.
It was then I was placed here, and you
first came to my embrace.
You then so warm and thrilling;
I so cold nnd chilling.
And then it was that I swore an eternal
oath, and the mason said, 'this mortar's
workln' yet.' I swore to support you till
enrth should crumble and wo go rioting
through the void In dissolving dust. You
were warm and thrilling then, now you

The brick edged a llttlo outward "My

"Be still yourself, rasped the brick, "you
are scratching me to a skeleton."
"No, but you mistake. Great lime, where
comes this groaning through nil the bricks

"Catch me, catch me, I fall" shrieked
"Have no fear, I am holding hard."
