All lecture-going people of Lincoln and
vicinity enjoyed a treat last Wednesday.
Mr. Ingersoll has not spoken here for years,
consequently both the renown of the orator
and the subject, "Shakespeare," drew out a
largo and cultivated audience. Nor was it
disappointed. From the opening sentence,
"We are mot to-night to pay a tribute of re
spect to the greatest genius the world has
ever produced," until the conclusion the au
dienco was hold entranced by his eloquence.
Mr. Ingersoll was somewhat hoarse, which
interf erred with his delivery, yet no one
missed a syllable. As the speaker himself
said, the subject was too broad, and could
but be poorly treated in a brief hour and a
half. The reasoning was not deep; the word
painting was wonderful. Withal we must
be satisfied that wo have heard the groat
free-thinker, with whose religious views we
may not agree, but whom personally wo
The first lecture in the Chancellor's course
was given Friday morning by Miss Effie K.
Price, international secretary of the Y. W.
C. A. Her subject was "College Notes
Here and Otherwhere." Miss Price hasa
pleasing style of address which evidently
captivated the audionce. She related, in a
very interesting manner, some observations
on eastern colleges that she has visited.
Prominent among these were Welles
ley, Smith and Vassar; also the co-educational
institutions of Cornell and the Syra
cuse University. She thinks that the success
of these women's colleges proves that co-education
is not necessary for the best results.
There is a student atmosphere about these
women's colleges that is remarkable. The
situation of a college has something to do
with the education of its students. The old
idea that it is the men that make the uni
versity is still true, but beauty of landscape
and attractive surrounding inspires one to
higher ideals. The speaker said that Cor
nell had thirteen hundred' mal and two hun
dred female students, and by tacit agreemeut
they never speak upon tho campus! There
is a difference between tho eastern schools
and ours that is very noticeable, namely,
that of general culture. From' our neces
sary haste in this western country we have
overlooked this point in an education. She
spoke from experience, as she is a graduato
of the Ohio Wesley an. Miss Price closed
with the beautiful story of St. Christopher,
and applied it to the student of to-day.

There has been considerable comment in
local papers about the Lincoln school coal
contract, which was let to Chas. B. Gregory
on his Peerless coal. This coal has been
tested and found equal to Rock Springs, and
only costs $0.00 por ton. Buy some of
Gregory, 1100 O. Phone 34-3.
Did it over occur to you that we havo
right here in Nebraska tho finest system of
stores in the country outside of New York ?
We refer to Herpolsheimer & Co. A few
years ago it seemed a great mistake, but they
have built up so good a trade that they havo
over one-half of the Exposition building, rent
free, thus enabling them to save this great
item of expense in conducting a business.
