The $25,000 bequeathed by Washing

ti national .University has now in
creased to nearly $4,000,000, but the
I'nlversity has not. materialized. It
seems particularly fitting that there
should bo established at Washington
a national University to utilize, the
great national libraries and museums.
Harvard University Is going the now
road. President. Kliot, In his annual
report, just rendered, recommends
that the University confer degrees
twice a, year, in February, as well as
In .Tune. The primnry object of such
a step is to benefit candidates for sec
ondary degrees; that they may re
ceive their degrees as near as possible
to the time of completing their work.
The death of Miss Frances K. Will
ard has caused sorrow in the hearts
of half a million members of hejri
great teinpernneo organization. Miss
vWillnrd began her career as a teacher
and the womans department of
Xorthwesk'rn University owes much
of Its present stntus to her efforts.
She was not a "believer in the su
premacy of man and the lowliness of
woman, and early exercised her pow
ers as a speaker in the pulpit of the
Methodist, church. Some one has
said: "Her incisive eloquence was
suggestive of Wendell Phillips." Tho
uplift she gave to the cause of higher
education may 1m, judged by her won
derful influence on the multitudes of
her worshippers. .

A I.IUKAItY LECTURE.
At a meeting of the Library board
held last. Monday it was decided to
have more quiet In the library. Ac
cordingly l.lbrarlur Ems was Instruc
ted to make an appeal to the students.
Oh the following morning the occu
pants of the library were somewhat
surprised to receive u spirited talk
from Mr. Epos, lie spoke lu a cry
low tone but for oiu'e the drop of a
pin could have been heard In any part
of the reading room. The librarian's
ability as a speech maker has never
before been brought into public no
twice, but on this occasion lie proved
himself quite, equal to the demand.
lie said there wire a few in the li
brary who were in-eventing the. oth
ers from working. Ten or fifteen per
sons were spoiling the work of 200.
Ue hinted rather broadly that some
one had already been suspended from
the use of the library and that such
a thing might luipeii again if those
found disobeying orders did not cease
from their favoritt amusement.
The lecture evidently struck home
to the majority of those present, judg
ing from guilty looks and subdued be
havior, which was noticeable at. the
conclusion of the talk. It is needless
to say that order In the library lias
been much better ever since.
