which 'has enabled him to combine
thoroughly, theory and practice. In

company of Boston, in charge of the
gat engine department, lie followed
this during the years of 18b4-5-0, by an
engagement Willi the American Hell

other tilings, he tested ?,U0U miles of

Mr. Wyer, our new librarian, l'ike
Mr. Brooks, come, from Minnesota,
having graduated there in lb'JO. Al
though an alumnus of the University
of Mimiesotu, he comes originally
froniKansus, having spent the llrst
eighteen years of liie in the "Suu
ilower jtute." At this ugc he moved
to Minnesota, where lie resided the
ten years following. The two years
which have passed since his gradua
tion, lie has. bpent in the study of
literary methods at the New York
state llibrury at Albany. During the
past year he has been on the btall' at
the latter place. Before leaving Min
neapolis he was connected with the
public llbiary there and also witli the
Minnesota State Lni,cndty l.brary.
In regard to the library here, Mr.
Wycr says that he llnih everything in
excellent bhape. The assistants have
lutely checked up all books und have
all other work up to date. The in
increased seating capacity of tlic read
ing room is to him a cause of much
jiibt pride. Kefonrhiy to his predecea
sor, lie says that he is sure that none
of the unpleasant misunderstandings
hist year will be repeatel.
in the mathematical department
Prof, llosl !). Moritz will succeed Mr.
Whitney. Mr. Moritz Is a graduate
of Hustings college, and for the pat
Jlveycnrs has been professor of math
emathlos nt that place. lie has lately
taken the degree of Master of Arts at
the University of Chicago, We are
borry to lose May Whitney, but he
kwes to accept a better position nt
the University of Michigan, where he
has an udvune'e in work and salary. He
expected. tfo complete his 'thesis and re
ceive the degree of Doctor of Pihlloso
phy at Chicago this summer. Besides
this change In the department the
names of tluiia Lough ridge, Mabel
Cleveland mil Allen Coninlou have
been milled as Instructors!. Ah arc very
well and favorably known In the Uni
versity anl need no further introduc
tion, l'rof. Davis, the head of the de
partment, sails from Europe on the

The dupnrliuont of lCcoiioinle Sci
ence also comes in for its share of in
crease. Miss Belvu llurron, a graduate
has been secured und judging from the
most excellent recommendations
which accompany 'her, we can feel as
sured that she will be a favorite. L'or
two years she was fellow in econoliucs
at the Lniversity of Chicago, since
wmch lime she has studied at the
University of California and in tier
many, she comu here from the L'nl
orsiti of Missouri, where she gave
cM-cilcnt satisfaction. All tlie old
stall' in this section have been retain
ed and are here wuth renewed igor
ready for their work.
In the "Gym" also w'ill be found a
new assistant, Mr. -Brycc of Spring
Held traiuiifg school, lias accepted an
received by the students, especially by
those lrom lied Oak, 'Jowi'i, as that
place is his home. Dr. Hastings in
sists that lie lias secured n jewel. We
hope he is correct.
There are several changes in the
old laeulty that will materially
strengthen It. Dr. Peterson has been
traiifelcrrcd from English Literature
to Uermau on account of increased
work in the latter Hue. Miss Edith
Schwartz will also urge upon the
i-reshnicn the necessity ol committing
biicli terrillc phniMis as 'i)u b.ai wie
cine Bluine" to memory.
Mrs. Eiiinia i'urk Wilson will accept
her new duties as dean ol the college
of women. This department was cre
utcd at the spring meeting ol tlie
Board of llegents und promises to be
very successful, lit is a step in the
right line and we hope that under the
management of Mrs. Wilson it will
exert a strong- beneficial inlluenge.
Miss ltosu Bouton, besides her duties
in the chemical department, will be
director of the cooking school. 11
this course fuliills ull that it name
implies it is safe to suy that in a very
short time ull the young ludles will
be requesting their young gentlemen
Jriends to try their angel's Jood, etc.
It would bo useless. for us
to try ito delineate Miss Bouton's good
qualities. They iire entirely too nuin
known to try to add any words of in
troduction. If s3ie proves as Wiorough
with cake und pic as she has with her
other duties in the past, everyone will
be sutlsiled and next bpring when tlic
dairy association meets to talk about
butter and cheese, she will surely sup
ply their famished uppetitcs with
plenity of doughnuts and cookies, but
wiitili No. t) holes m thcun.
