The missionary mooting Sunday afternoon
was on Peru and Christ with tho subject
divided into four parts. Land of Peru, Pic
tiiro in Gray, Evangelization of Peru, and
Christ in Peru. Miss Griggs sang a solo
that was much enjoyed. There was a good
Professor Sherman will deliver a course
of lectures on Shakespeare before tho
University of Chicago this summer. The
fact that ho has been chosen to lecture there
is decidedly flattering to the professor and
is a recognition that the University of
Nebraska may be proud of.
The annual report of tho .Stare Horticul
tural Society is just out. It is different from
any former report. It is devoted entirely to
ihe apple. It contains articles on tho scien
tific side of the question by Prof. Bessey
and Bruner. They treat of the tree and
the insects injurious to it. There are also
a great number of papers on Orcharding by
practical men.
The lately organized English club held its
second meeting at Professor Adams' homo
Saturday evening. The program consisted
of a review of Henoyk Sienkiewicz's book
"The Deluge," by Professor Bates, a
sketch by ir. Shrevo and a poem by Miss
Bullock. The club promises to be one of
the most flourishing and influential of
University organizations.
Tho Hesperian has considered it its
duty tho past few months to say some pretty
caustic things with regard to our contempo
rary, the Nebraskan, and tho men back of
it. "We wish it understood, however, that
we have never imputed the honesty of the
business manager of the Nobraskan. Ho
has, in tho past, been honorable in his deal
ings, and, so far as the Hesperian knows,
a gentleman in all his business relations.
But ho has associated himself of late with an
aggregation of men in this institution who,
wo believe, are pulling tho wool over his
oyes and using his good name and reputa
tion to futhor their own rather shady ends.
Who compose this aggregatinon and what
their ends are, no student need be told.
Wo have regretted exceedingly the course
Mr. Whitmoro has seen fit to pursue, but
confidently believe that the time is not far
off when ho will see tho error of his ways
and come back into tho agency. As matters
now stand ho is the only redeeming feature
of the motley crew that recently opened one
bottle and a half of champagne around the
banquet board. But his conduct of late
has been such that ho is fast losing the
respect ho has formerly enjoyed. It is this
that fills our days with sorrow and our nights
with lamentations.
Tho long foretold era of "Peace on earth,
good will toward men," the millennium is at
hand, since W. M. Johnson avers that he
was not a candidate until urged by tho Uni
versity delegation to allow his name to bo
used for float delegate. Since Mr. Johnston's
modesty prevented him from pushing his
candidacy, it is in order to inquire who is to
blame for thrusting this office upon him.
"Who went to Cotner as often as the street
cars run, to look out for Johnston's candi
dacy? "W. M. Johnston.
Who kept the telegraph wires hot between
Lincoln and Crete inquiring about Johnston's
candidacy? W. M. Johnston.
Who went to Wesleyan every evening to
ascertain the drift of political opinion at
that college?
W. M. Johnston and his hired man,
Who is the silent editor of the Nebraskan?
W. M. Johnston.
Who does our float delegate represent?
Billio and Jim and his hired man Weaver.
Wo therefore conclude that, since Mr.
Johnston made such a gallant fight against
all influences that tended to give him place
and power, that the millennium has come.
