NEW COMPANY PROBABLE.
There Is a probability that this year
may see flvo companies in tho endet
battalion instead of four as hereto
fore. The number of new cadets Is
unusually largo and tho total registra
tion for drill has reached tho unpre
cedented figure of 390.
This would make each of tho four
companies almost too largo to handle
and Lieutenant Jackson has been seri
ously considering tho advisability of
forming a now company. Tho an
nouncement of this action, should It
bo decided upon, would doubtless
please a largo number of tho old
cadets, as a now company means new
officers to command It, and many who
wero disappointed in tho promotions
see in such a scheme a ray of hope to
have their military ambitions realized.
All speculation as to a fifth com
pany was settled last Wednesday by
tho definite announcement that a now
company would bo formed and that
officers for tho same would bo ap
pointed as soon as tho now mon aro
ready to go into companies.
Thoro aro already seventy students
registered In tho law school. This is
ono-half more than wore registered
this timo last year.

Geo. Hoimrod returned to the Uni
versity last Monday after a two
weeks' hunting trip in the mountains.
George did not bring any game back
with him, but he has a long string of
hair-raising bear stories. About tho
only thing he managed to get in the
mountains is a mustache, which Is, as
yet, passing through the critical stage,
but hopes are entertained that It will
soon develop Into flourishing growth.
THE MINSTREL SHOW.
Tho dato of tho minstrel show for
the benefit of tho foot ball team has
been set for October 23, which means
two weeks more of preparation. It
was tho original Intention to give it
the week before, but on account of tho
joint program of tho literary societies
It was announced for tho weok follow
ing. Tho performance has been
worked up quietly, In spite of the un
usual interest manifested by everyone,
and considerable ground haB already
been covered. There will be some
where from forty to fifty men taking
part this year, so from this fact alone
It Is easy to see that the show will bo
on a moro pretentious scale than bo
fore. Tho remodelling of tho chapel
makes it possiblo for certain features
which wore Impossible last year, and
tho minstrel first part will bo put on
in proper stylo. Tho performance
will bo divided In three parts. The
minstrel first part will, as usual, lead
off with stirring choruses, original
gags of local flavor, and tho very latest
popular songs novor heard In tho city
before. Tho flnalo of tho first part is
something entirely now und Btartling.
Tho second part will bo a short olio of
good specialties, and the show will
close by a now farco by John Kondrlck
Bangs. Ab In tho case of tho very
successful "ChumB" last year, the
farce will bo given 'by boys entirely,
somo of them taking female partB
In this lino there will bo some of the
Bhowiest dresses over made up. Tho
cast has been at work some timo, and
it is thoir intention that tho play
shall have tho true professional snap
Thoro will bo a great abundance of
theatre parties, both from tho Univer
sity and tho city, for that night. It
is tho intention of tho management
that a party bo worked up for ovory
lratornlty and literary socloty in
college. There will bo a largo number
of tho city peoplo presont, and there
Is ovory assurance of an lmmonso
house. Thg program will bo varied
enough to please everyone, and thoro
will be Jokes on unlvnroity affairs
from one end to tho other.
