Members of the Auburn high school took a good look at

The champion liar of Cass county (the athletic editor) is

Eighteen subjects were assigned to as many members of
the second prep class in classics last term, with the under
standing that if properly worked out, the papers with these
subjects would excuse the writers from final examination.

WE ARE HAPPY.
On motion of Representative Porter, of Merrick county,
the house passed the uniuersity appropriation on last Satur
day afternoon without a dissenting vote. The bill will with
out doubt pass the senate.
A Friday Evening Meeting.
The young lady says it was not a called meeting, although
six young gentlemen called. When Mr. Barkley came she
greeted him more kindly than" she had any previous night
that week, for the night was dark, the mud deep, and the
Mr. Stockton, standing at his window, looking out saw
the darkness and heard the ram fall and the mud splash and
murmured "Barkley will surely not go to-night." In a little
while Mr. Stockton was rapping at the door of Miss s res
idence. Miss was a little surprised to sec Mr. Stockton
but she. very cordially asked him in. While Mr. Barkley and
Mr. Stockton made the usual remarks about the weather,
Miss was growing anxious. She saw that Mr. Stockton
had called, not expecting Mr. Barkley to be there, and she
began to fear that other admirers might do the same.
Another rap at the door, and Mr. Maghce was ushered
in. Mr. B. and Mr. S. looked a little startled and Miss
grew confused for a moment. But she recovered her pres
encc of mind in time to start the boys to talking about the
weather again. Before that topic was worn out she again
opened the door In response to a rap. This timcMr.Stoughton
stepped in with the usual broad smile playing around his
mouth. But when he saw how matters were, his face
assumed a very sad, downcast expression and he stammered
out something like "Hope you are well, thought I would just
Icok in as I was passing," and he started to go. But he
mistook the bewildered look on Miss 's face for an appeal
for him to stay and the boys called to him to know whether
it had quit raining yet, so lie stayed. Hardly was he seated,
when another ran at the door told Miss that another
caller was at the door. Mr. Barkley began to work his fing
ers nervously; Mr. Stockton tried to get his feet in a more
comfortable position; Mr. Maghce thrust his hands clear down
into his pockets with a look of determination that suggested
Speaker Elder's "Stay by her boys;" Mr. Stoughton twirled
his hat and, grinning in the usual manner, gazed on the
floor: By this time Miss prepared to welcome the rest of
them. When she opened the door Mr. Porterfield shook the
mud from his feet and jerked-out "Howdy do" in his usual
happy way. When he saw the other boys looking uneasy
and sad he softly whistled "Annie Rooncy," or something
Before he had time to decide whether to stay or not, in
walked Mr. Skilcs. Now Mr. Skilcs had not intended to
call upon Miss that night, but had started to call on the
other one at the Weslcyan. Finding the mud pretty deep he
concluded to spend the evening with Miss . Nevertheless
he glared at Mr. Porterftcld in a way that said cYou have no
business here." Perhaps the reporter would have had a
tragedy to write up if, just at that moment, Mr. Skilcs had
not seen Mr. Barkley, Mr. Stockton, Mr. Stoughton, and Mr.
Maghce. At the sight of so much misery he quit looking
fierce and rushed out of the door.
How or when the other boys left we did not learn. Miss
says Mr. Portcrfield was the only self-possessed man that
visited her that night, and that he did a1! the talking.
