I I"- H
world, though it is ordinarily quick-witted
onough, seems often to have trouble in re
cognizing great men. The broad student ia
always communing with nature when he
should be communing with his profs. He
neglects his problems in mathematics to pon
der over the problems of the universe. He
frequently forgets to correct the errors in his
French exercises because the errors of suffer
ing humanity weigh heavily upon him.
When examination time draws near, the state
of humanity and the universe grows more
and more appalling, and so moves his heart
and distracts his mind that the broad student
frequently succeeds in flunking for the sins
of the world.

If any one there in Nebraska remembers
Lehmer the whistler,
Lehmer whose warbling once echoedthrough
every hall on the campus,
Tell him that Derrick now warbles a melody
sadder and softer,
Thinking of friends and companions; his far
away alma mater;
Thinking of welcome and greeting; himself
not there to receive it.
I would beg to assure the editor that I am
in no condition to give a learned discussion
of Johns Hopkins University, nor of Balti
more oysters, as I have formed no acquaint
ance with either the one or the other as yet;
the season for the first has not yet opened
up. I fear the season for the second will
I have been in the city for over two weeks
and have been spending my time as much as
possible in getting acquainted with Baltimore
and with Baltimore life. Perhaps some of
the things that I have observed would pass
other eyes unnoticed, and many things have
doubtless escaped my notice that would
prove interesting to others.
The most noticeable thing, to one raised
in the west, is the crazy way they have here
of running their streets in every direction. I
don't believe Herschel himself would recog
nize the north star if he were to meet it in
the streets of Baltimore. I fondly imagined
that I was living on an east and west street,
until one night when I saw Polaris over my
left shoulder as I stood on the north door
step. Perhaps it was a mistake on the part
of old Polaris, or else he could not stand the
north side of Baltimore when the wind was
from the oyster market olf south.
The new part of Baltimore is very respect
able. The streets are clean and fairly wide
for an eastern city. The method employed
to keep them clean is characteristic and will
perhaps convey an idea of the way things
are done here. The doors of the houses
open directly upon ths sidewalk. One enters
the house by a short flight of marble steps.
