The students of tho Missouri state

portunity tf, display, their patriottam
recently and they took advantage of it
in tho following manner, as related, by
"Since the Maine disaster the Blu
tlento ofvtho Missouri- University havo
been in an uproar1 of patriotism.' Sev
eral meeting bnve been held, resolu
tions Jave ben passed denouncing
Spain," and the cadet batalllon hns for
merly tendered its services to thd
government in case of war. Several
times the students have paraded the
streets with drums and flags, shouting"
defiance to Spain. A few nights ago.
Thomas Jones, a University janitor,
was accused of expressing,, Spanish
sentiments. He was seized af terWlark
by a dozen masked students, bound
band and foot, placed in a cart, and
taken to the dissectfngjjfroom' -of tho
medical building. Ho.Was- stretched
upon a table and they began to sharp

tho neck of tho janitor nnd carried
him to an electric light pole, miuounc

The cries of the janitor alarmed tho
neighborhood, and fearing the police
the students drubbed their victim
severely and released him. A move
ment was also made by the students
to burn 1)6 Lome in elllgy, but sever
al members of tlio faculty, b, earnest
addresses, prevailed Upon them to

Kansas Favors It.
Tho University of Nebraska is to be
commended for originating and advo
cating the proposed track meets nt
the. Trans-MiBsissippi exposition Such
a plan should meet with fax or from
all Trans-Mississippi- colleges. Tho
large crowds which will throng the
exposition grounds insure its financi
al success. Neither is their any rea
son why the colleges- of this section
should not furnish' first, class sport
We hope to sec Kansas develop some
good material nnd take n high rank
nt this proposed meets Such a meet
xx ill certainly attract much attention
and ought to act as a further incen
tive to individual work. Hut nside
from tho individual glory to bo se
cured the prospect, of this contest
ought to appeal to the heart of every
lo.al Kansas athlete to do his best.
If a Trans-Mississippi meet is to be
held, the University of Kansas as one
of the leading western eollegcs-.should
be well represented. Kansas Unixer
