It would be well if certain parties who
have a fondness for expressing thoir disap
proval by hisses, would remember that snakes
and lizards have a monopoly on this disgust
ing noise. Perhaps some who attended the
meeting last Friday wish to be classed with
The English Clubr which met at tho home
of Prof, and Mrs. Bates, Saturday, Jan. 19,
listened to a most interesting paper by Prof.
Adams, upon the question of what the mod
ern novel should be. Mr. Dunroy read a
poem, and stories were read by Mr. New
branch and Mr. Alexander.
Prof. Fossler's lecture in chapel last Sun
day, upon the book of Job, was well at
tended. The subject was most fitting, very
restful and edifying to the weary studonts
who must "work their way" through the
crowded halls to class-rooms, five or six
times, live or six days of ovary week.
As a fitting finale to the day of conflict,
tho Union Society gave a ""War Program"
Friday evening. N. C. Abbott of Company
E, and E. M. Short of Company H, re
counted their experiences in Indian warfare,
and the University Conservatory, with Miss
Carol Churchill, furnished excellent music.
Miss Jones has not boon in tho library for
several days. She is suffering from a severe
nervous shock, caused by an accident that
ended in a runaway. A wheel coming off
' from a carriage in which she was riding, pre
cipitated the occupants to the ground, and
startled the horses into flight. Miss Jones,
fortunately, was not injured, except for the
sevore shock, from which she has not yet re
covered. Tho Palladian contest was a decided suc
cess. A delightful evening smiled pro
pitiously, and the chapel was filled to the
second row in the gallery. Mr. H. P.
Leavitt delivered tho first oratiou, "A Few
Principles of Progress." Though some
what fragmentary, owing partly to the na
ture of the subject, and partly to lack of
careful preparation, the oration was fairly
running over with earnest, original ideas.
Mr. Hunt spoke upon ' 'The War in the
East." There was less originality in his
work, but his delivery was very natural and
Miss Flora Bullock's oration, "The New
West," showed unusual strength, originality,
and tho crowning glory of cho finished ora
tion singleness of purpose. It was a work
of whicn any student might well be proud.
Miss Leonard's oration, "The Present and
Future," dealt largely in generalizations. It
was delivered naturally and woll.
With their customary kindness, members
of tho University Conservatory wore ready
with some truly beautiful selections to sup
ply the musical part of tho program. The
piano solo by Mr. Kendall, tho vocal solos
by Miss Spencer, and tho banjo solos by
Prof. Planque, were all delightful. Our
own Mrs. Harriot Blair Ward also sang for
a most appreciative audience.
Tho judges' decision gives to Miss Bul
lock first place, to Mr. Leavitt second.
