of hot grounders, although ho Is credited
with an error. Ho also lod In batting,
making a throo-bagger nnd n baso hit.
Taylor pitched a good gamo for tho vis
itors, holding our boys down to six hits,
but thoy found him when hits wero
needed and In this way, assisted by ono
or two costly errors, tho University won
tho gnmc. Robinson mndu his first ap
pearance In tho box for Nebraska
nnd let tho Originals got seven hits oft
his delivery. Howovor, Roby kept tholt
hits well scattered so that only thrco
runs wero scored. Waller led tho Orig
inals In batting with tlireo oafo hits,
jyclbj starjtedth.Oygamo with a threo
baso hit Into right Hold. KIndler knocked
a grounder down to shortstop which wns
too hot to handlo and Wells scorca.

After Gruhnm had been retired, Wallor

sent a grounder to Crelgh and Waller
and Lowls wero doubled up.
In tho second Gordon went out on nn
easy ball. Packard was hit by tho ball
and thon stole both second and third
bases, Rocdor was given his bnso on

trick on Nebruaku. Reeder started for

homo. But Cntcher Graham, protending
to throw tho ball down to socond, throw
It to tho pitcher nnd Packard was cuught
between bases. Mcnnwhtlo Reeder had
run around between socond nnd third

reached first on an error. Waller thon
mado what was really only a baso hit,
but Rcodor lot tho ball pass him and
Graham Bcored, Wallor going to third.
It might bo mentioned hero . that tho
dark clouds rendered it very difficult for
tho fielders to see tho ball and this par
tially accounts for Boeder's error. Lewis
knocked a grounder to Crelgh and Wallet
was thrown out at home. Packard made

The lnbt gamo of ball played at tht
homo grounds beforo tho eastern trip
was played Tuesday with Wahoo. Tho
boys from Wahoo thought thoy wore not
going to have a very difficult time In
beating tho university, as thoy had
played Council Bluffs and wero beaten
by only ono score. But they wero glvon
as clean a shutout as any club over re
ceived. Thoy put up a very poor gamo
at times. They did not make many
orrors, "out thoy woro slow all tho time.
Whon our boys wero on bases thoy nevoi
hesitated to nttompt a steal. It seemea
to bo tho policy of tho visitors If thoy
wero' fortunato enough to reach first to
wait until a hit was mado before advano.

A MAN OF VllfATILE HIND
Ho Grew Up In u Homoo'f Learning nnd Hits
Been BumiNKlvoly n Hcholnr, Journnl
1st, Htntasmnn una Ulorgynmn,
Great men usunlly distinguish thorn
selves In somo particular occupation or
profession. Hpurgcon was a great preach
or, Henry Clny was iflgrent stntesmnn.
But the limits of any onr vocation are too
nnrrow for a mind Ilk? that of Edward
Evorott Hnlo'B. In hlmja great preacher,
author, philanthropist, and statesman arc
all combined In ono man.
Dr. Halo was born In Boston, Massa
chusetts, April 3, 1822, and has passed a
largo portion ot his Ufa In the same city.
As a child ho was very fond of books
and when six years old began to learn
from a Latin primer. His father was a
scholarly man and at this time president
of the Boston and Worcester railroad.
His mother was a groat lovor of books,
nnd the boy grew up In a homo whero
learning was loved for Its own sake, and
where he had tho advantage of tho
brightest nnd best society. Dnnlel Web
ster wns a family friend, und umong tho
others who visited there wero James Rus
sell Lowell, William Story and tho Bum-
ncrs. Here In tho home bright, Inter
esting talks and discussions took place.
To such u school us this Dr, Halo owes
tho education of his youth as much as
to Harvurd. At tho ago of thirteen ho
entered Harvard university, nnd gradu
ated second In his class, four years later.
At this time boating nnd baseball wero not
known In Cambridge, but Mr. Halo Joined
In tho rough and tumblo football und
was a member of tho "cricket club." Ho
look a great deal of Interest In botany und
for this study kept a garden of his own.
Directly after graduating ho returned
to. tha Latin school im'Aq.iohur... 4:11s. spam
time was employed In all sorts of work
on his father's paper, tho Dally Adver
tiser. Whon a boy ho leurncd to set
type In tho office nnd hus served on tho
paper us everything from reporter to ed-ltor-ln-chlef.
He was an accurate re
porter nnd wns sent to get the most
notable speeches made In tho city.
His historic studies began when ho was
connected with this paper. For six years
he was Its South American editor, having
been led to the study of Spanish-America
When ho expected to become tho reader
of W. H. Prescott, tho historian. He hus
continued his studies, until now ho Is un
authority on Spanish-American affairs.
In 1842 Dr. Halo was licensed to preach
by the Boston association of Congrega
tional ministers. For n time ho supplied
various pulpits, spending tho whole winter
of 1844-45 In Washington. After leaving
college tho only preparation ho had for
the ministry was tho work done on tho
Advertlsor. Dr. Halo now says: "Any
avorago doctor of divinity would say this
was a very preposterous course of prep
aration for the modern pulpit, for tho
general drift of modern habits In Ameri
ca almost compels- young men of college
training to fo'.low It up by threo years
moro of scholastic life at a theological
school, If they mean to be prenchers.
Porhnps they are exactly the persons who
noed to look at life moro In tho nctlvo
relations. However this may bo, the six
months' training which has proved of
most valuo was spent ns tho hnrd work
ing prlvnto secretary of my father, who
was thon engaged In Pennsylvania In
Important work regarding railroads nnd
ennuis, boarlng on tho resumption of pay
ment of tho Interest on tho Pennsylvania
debt." Aftor acting as a supply minis
ter for somo time ho was called to tho
church of Unity In Worcester, Massa
chusetts. Whllo hero ho married Miss
Perkins of Hartford, In Worcester ho
was noted for the active Interest ho took
In active-work among tho people. Ho
tried to get personally acquainted with all
the business men and mado special ef
forts to know the firemen and members
of the police force. It was ono of his
sayings that "tho man who Is to preaoh
to men of affairs must live among them,
read what they read, and to a certain
oxtont, know what they know." It
was customary hero for a minister to bo
a member of tho school loard and ho was
asked to take to.o place. Ho answered
that to bo overseer of the poor was more
In his line of duty. Taking him at nls
word,,.hO',waB elected to this office. Whllo
dlHchnrging this duty he wrote several
articles on "Irish Emigration." nnd tho
pronont system of state almshouses Is
1mscd on thoso suggestions,
Aftor remaining ten years In Worces
ter he wns called to tho South Congrega
tion church of Boston, of whloh ho Is
still pastor. In lfiRIi ho was elected to tho
leglslaturo nnd continued to bo re-elected
till 1R00. During his Inst term ho filled
tho speaker's chair, being tho youngest
man ever ohoson to tho olllc. Soon aftor
this ho was consul general to Egypt for
six years, and wns lnrgely Instrumental
In tho nrrest and sending homo of i'ohn
In 1809 Dr. Halo becamo tho editor of
a magazine called Old nnd Now, whloh
six years later wns merged Into Serlb
ner's Monthly. Whllo editor ho wns por
fliinded to write a serial story for tho
mngnzlne. Ho decided to found tho story
on tho llfo of Frederick Greenleaf, a
young man whom ho had known In Wor
cester, and call him Horry Wndsworth In
tho story. Tho result wns his best known
book "Ten TlmoH Ono Is Ten." This
work led to tho establishment of "Ten
Times Ono" clubs, nnd Wadsworth clubs.
At present theso chnrltablo associations
number moro than 50,000 members and aro
scnttered nil over tho world. Besides
writing n number of other books he has
gulncd populnrlty ns n Bhort story writer.
Ills stories uro highly Improbnblo ones,
outlining great reforms, but ho succeeds
In mnklng them rcnl to tho render. One
cnllod "Tho Man Without a Country" wns
written during the civil war and did a
great deal toward spreading patriotic
feeling throughout tho country.
In 1871 Dr. Hale was elected to tho statu
sennto and appointed chnlrmon of tho
railroad committee. Ho drow up tho gen
eral rnllrond net now In force. Tho next
year he wns mado assistant secretary of
State. When fifty-two years old ho was
admitted to tho bar, and again elected to
tho legislature, serving four years. He
hns nlso served a number of terms ns a
member of the bonrd of overseers of Har

THE SENIOR PLAY.
Work hns begun on the long looked for
nnd much heralded senior piny. There
has been n great deal of talk going
around of lato about tho senior piny be
Ing too Into to produce, nnd a great deal
of this emanates from seniors who ought
to know bettor. The committee has had
a path that was not strewn with roses
or nnythlng similar and tho play now
represents a grent deal of work. It has
been their policy to keep tho Idea of tho
piny a Btrlct secret and It wns on this
account that somo of tho scntors havo
been so hasty In condemning It. Tho
parts aro now assigned, however, nnd n
thero Is Just nbout four weeks beforo
cluss-dny thero Is nmplo tlmo for tho ro
henrslng nnd polishing of the perform
ance beforo It Is given. Tho parts have
been selected with tho greatest care, as
slgnment being based entirely on previ
ous oxperlcnco of tho different members
of tho class, as woll as on their nnturnv
nptltudo for certnn pnrts. As It happens
tho lnrgest parts aro vory ovenly divided
nmong tho different factions In tho class
so that no Just complaint of favoritism
could bo offered from any quarter. Tho
piny Itself, ns wns beforo mentioned, Is
to bo kept n seerot until the day of Its
production. It deals with university llfo
and Is nn entirely origlnnl Idea. Anyono
who goes homo without seeing It will bo
missing one of tho greatest things of thi
yenr. Prellmlnnry rehearsing Is already

nt Lawroncc, Kan., last Friday ovonlng.
It Is needless to say that a lnrgo nudl
onco and Intense onthuslasm greeted tho
dobators from tho two universities In
forensic rivalry. Tho Kansas "rooters''
had been In training for weeks so ns to
do offeotlvo sorvlco for their spokesmen.
In tho fuco ot such zeal and aotIvlt,
Messrs. IX. 8. Bnkor, G. W. Green nnd
J. D, Donlson did not loso courngo no
give up all hope. Kansas univorslty wns
reprosonted by Messrs. Shurpe, Wood and
Coleman. Tho Judges wero Hon. F. H.
Doxtcr of Knnsus city, President Mac
affeo of Park college and a professor
from tho Oklahoma university.
Chancellor Snow, aftor mnklng a fow
appropriate remarks, read tho quoBtlon
for discussion, which wns, "Resolvee.,
That tho Policy of tho United Stato
Should Bo to Extend Her Dominions."
Ho announced that tho visiting dobntcrs
had tho affirmative and Kansas tho nega.
Tho affirmative speakers contended that
thoy woro only proposing a continuation
of our hlBtorlo policy of territorial ex
pansion. Tho purchaso of Louisiana and
later annexations wore olted as prccs
dents In our historical growth nnd ns
great factors In strengthening' our re
sources nnd multiplying our possibilities
I'rominont publicists nnd America!
statesmen wero cited as oxpononts of
gruuuui nnu conservative expansion ol
our boundaries. Tho political organlzal
tlon of tho atato should extend with thfl
social and Industrial organism and thus
onaClb tho""ttnItcd Stalc3operfeclTiior
geographical unity. Tho Anglo Saxon
race Is tho only ruco whloh has with
stood being amalgamated by non-Aryan
elements and tho latter havo been com
polled, under the law of tho "survival ot
tho fittest," to adopt Its Institutions, Ian
guago and laws.
Tho Anglo Snxon Is so largely In, nv
merlcnl ascendancy on tho continent that
thero Is no fear of an ethmlcal confilct
with tho foreign elements. Our Institu
tions have shown themselves cnpablo of
growth and the state should dovolop as
an expanding moral organism. Tho poL
Itlcal vitality of tho Teutonic race Is
shown In tho fnct that It has given po.
Itlcal organization to modern Europe.
Our people nro going beyond our bound
aries und completely Americanizing th6
adjneent territory, us Is seen In Canada
und northern Mexico, and thus expansion
Is tho only logical result. Tho federal
stato Is capablo of great capnclty becnuso
It reconciles locnl nutonomy with nntlonal
unity In political action. Wo would In
cronao our resources nnd multiply our
possibilities and glvo homes to millions
of peoplo with tho benefits ot tho federal
system of government by continuing our
historic policy. To nccept tho policy of
tho negative would mean territorial stag
nation and tho adoption of tho Ironclad
rulo that tho state should not change Its
boundaries with changing conditions.
How can the territorial destiny of tho
federal stato bo foretold In this progres
sive ago? Expansion Is consistent with
our Internnl development. Tho Anglo
Snxon hus shown himself capablo ot cop
ing with problems of tho first magnitude
In conceiving and forming tho federal
union nnd ho will not give up In despair
tho solution of minor domestic questions.
Messrs. Baker, Green and Donlson had
tholr subject matter well In hand and
presontcd it In a scholarly, clear and
forcible manner. Their argument was
strong nnd convincing and tho audience
showed their appreciation of tho boys'
offorts In freoly extending them congrat
ulations. Although two out of the threo
Judges decided against them, they may
rest assured that they put up a tangible
argument which the negative refused to
attack during tho whole discussion.
Tho negative speakers urged that tho
expansion policy was Inspired by greed
and avnrlco. It placed commercial gain
ns tho good of our existence. Tho United
States needed no moro territory and sho
had plenty of commercial advantages.
There was no danger of war and from a
military standpoint the policy was not
Justifiable. Tho courso of events pro.
sonted different conditions from what ex-
l Isted when wo made previous annexa
tions, we aro tne weaitniost nation m
tho world and have already many domes
tic problems to settle. Theso must bo
settled If wo nro to nssure our existence.
Extension of our boundaries would In.
urease our Intornal complications. Tho
Anglo Saxon has yet to amalgamate tho
negro and foreign elements,

subject matter well in hand and their
