and relatives in Lincoln.

ers' association and to renew old acquaintances
"8i. Mr. A. R. Keim, county clerk of Gage
county is in the city. He attended the meetings
of the State Historical society and is watching
the maneuvers of the legislature.
Chas. Goodell, formerly of the class of '93, and
now deputy county clerk of Saline county, visited
in Lincoln recently. He was accompanied by
his sister Jessie, also a former student.
92. T. Brugger, who was taking post-graduate

'91. A. A. Faurot, now principal of the

sented at the State Teachers' association were

'80. Prof. H. W. Caldwell read a paper on
"Methods of Teaching History" before the State
Teachers' association. In view ol the fact that
history, of all the branches of the common schools
of Nebraska, is probably the most poorly taught,
it surely was fitting that Nebraska teachers should
hear something on this subject from Prof. Cald
well. Many words of high commendation have
been passed upon the paper and it is to be hoped
that the suggestions given therein may, in some
degree, bring about better results in the teaching
of this all-important study in our schools.
'l In a letter to Prof. Fossler, Prof. Geo. E.
Howard says: "Leland Stanford University has
already more than two hundred more students
than registered last year. Although the faculty
has been greatly enlarged, they are crowded with
work to their utmost. The accommodations for
students are so limited that but few more can be
admitted." He states that in his opinion the
university might have two hundred graduates
next year if accommodations could be made to
receive all the students who will apply for admis
sion. The Clay County Progress of January '93 was
recently received at this office. Its editor is R.
H. Graham, formerly of '96. It is a bright look
ing four-page sheet resplendent in large, heavy,
headlines and abounding in what appear to be
well paying advertisements. As to its political
persuasion well its hardly worth while to men
tion that. What could it be if not independent?
All who knew ''Bob" while he was here, will
never doubt that his paper must be independent
now and forever remain so. We wish our friend
Bob the highest success in his new vocation.
The following letter was lost, strayed or stolen,
but was finally captured in time to be printed in
this issue of The Hesperian:

bought another pair in Sheridan and have worn
Get me some pants.

Salt Lake City, Jan. 5, 1893.
Alumni Editor Hesperian Dear Sir: The
Christmas number of The Hesperian is at hand,
full of the news of the University and of its scat
tered members. The paper is to be congratulated
on the evolution it has undergone since the
"88ers" occupied the halls of their aana mater.
In the busy variety of a humorist, there has
scarcely been time for a letter to The Hesperian
although contemplated for some time. Allow me
to correct the statement in the recent issue of
The Hesperian that I am sojourning at Ogden.
As the heading of this letter indicates, I am at
Mormon headquarters, near the famous Inland
Briny of America. In the paragraph on Ne-
