greater part of the hour was devoted to a
consecration mooting; and in words liko
those of the first missionaries he delivered
his final message and prayer.
Whilo all wore kneoling there was a
brushing of feet on the stairs and a rust
ling at the door. It was pushed open
and then partly closed, and a trio of
snickers sounded through. There wero
hasty whispers, and more snickers; then
The mooting was then about halt' fin
ished. All through tho last half-hour
the giggles and whispers continued. A
bass voice sounded in husky tones and
soprani) squeals and alto gasps ensued.
Then vice-versa. There were a great
many confidences exchanged in that dim
basement passageway, confidences into
which the Y. M. C. A. young men and
the Y. W. C. A. young women did not at
all desire to entor. But they couldn't
help it. And all the time tho stars were
shining on the campus benches.
It is perhaps well for us that we see,

knocks, our heads would soon become
little bettor than inflated paper bags. The
abovo example is submitted as an anti

arrogancy and conceit. ,
That valiant foreign missionary who
has boon among us, Mr. Studd, received
an object lesson upon the needs of home
missions, on his last evening at tho Uni
versity of Nebraska. Some twenty-five
students had gathered in tho Y. M. 0. A.
room for a few last words and a hand
clasp with the man whoso royal sincerity
and devotion have won the admiration
of us all. At Mr. Studd's request the
C. 0. Michncr met with the cabinet of
theY. M. (!. A. Wednesday afternoon.
Tho work was talked over and many val
uable suggestions were received. 11" 1S
one of tho strongest men in tho work.
Tho College Settlement Committee,
acting upon a suggestion from Pi'ot'
Sherman will ask that a day bo set apart
and made a holiday by tho University
authorities to bo known as College Settle
