It is reported that Walter, alias "Tuskcy," Ilongland will
bestow upon our so-called classic halls the priceless blessing of
his effervescent presence, and that too in the near future, We
have long wondered why the world seemed so sad and dreary,
the weather so cloudy and foreboding, the University so dcttd
and buried; but we sec it till now as in this moment of happy
inspiration the thought comes to us that we have missed
"Tusky." There is a wide and melancholy gap in our midst
that was wont to be filled by the persistent and exuberant
loquacity, the ceaseless and continuous verbosity of "Tusky."
Come on "Tusky!"
One of the students is in receipt of a letter from The Ilr.s
I'ERIan's ex-chief, O. W. Fifer, now in attcmlcncc upon the
Garret Biblical Institute at Kvauston, III., pursuing a course
of study preparatory to entering the Methodist ministry. D.
D. Forsyth is with him. "Fife" still loves the University as
of old and says Northwestern is not what it is croaked up to

Dave" and "Pfifier," arc seriously thinking of returning
here next year to take a post graduate course in Ecclesiastical
history under Professor Howard. We hope they will do it.

'The county court was in regular .session yesterday at the
court house and broke the record. Its record has been a
dead-lock over the election of a county superintendent of
schoolb to fill n vacancy. This tied-up situation has lasted
for about two months past. Hut the court (or board of super
visors) brought up the question as usual yesterday, and Mr.
Fred Foy, liberal member, sprung the name of Joseph Pecry,
son of D. II. Peery, Sr., for the office. There did not seem
to be any room for the Mormon members of the court to
doilgs voting for young Pcery and so he was elected, While
his father is one of the most wealthy and prominent Mormons
of Utah this son is more than half liberal, and is withal a
young man of excellent education, amiability, and has pro
gressive ideas. His brother, D. II. Pecry, Jr., is a full
fledged liberal. So the election of Joseph Pecry 13 at least a
drawn battle as far as party advantage is concerned, especi
ally as he owes his selection to the liberal members of the
