Unions gave one of the best literary pro
grams of the year, to ono of the best of au
diences. Papers by Miss Prey and Messrs.
Nowbranch and Alexander, a piano solo by
Miss Triplett, and a vocal solo by Mr. Cam

Oh, shade of. Robert Browning! Is it not
enough that every literary upstart should
pervert the meaning of your soul rending
verse? It seems not, for hero comes our
most worthy contemporary with the ear
splitting, heart-breaking statement that the
Browning class read "Tonnia" and
"Olambo's Birthday" last semester. It is
too bad Colonel, but please, oh, please
don't lot it happen again!

between tho semesters. Miss Margaret Hall

so generous were tho young ladies with
samples that the spirits of one of the gentlo

passed a most enjoyable. eveniug.
After examination the following epitaph

O say, can you see
By the dawn's early light,
How our papers now look,
. That we left here last night?
I've looked far and near,
But the things won't look right ;
And our marks, now I fear,

special rates to students. 1203 O steeot.
