LINCOLN, NEBRASKA, JANUARY S, 18
One of the frivolous girls whomused
tlie special student in chapel the other
morning, had made up her mind to re
form; so she selected a seat by her lone
some in Hie west galloiy during the
chapel exercises and commenced.
She was deeply impressed with the
fervor of the devotions of the leading
lords of creation. To tell the truth, she.
vent iuto the gallery, hoping to see and
not be seen; but soon she was made
aware of her mistake.
Several boys in each tow reviewed the
gallery every two minutes. Thus the
total time spent in gallery-ogling during
the aereises must have made a sum of
five or six hours. With this data? she
tried to calculate how many generations

and long-haired boys suffered

their fingers as hair rakes.

During the Dean's prayer everything
was so still that Hie frivolous girl' could
hear whispers from a dispute between
four boys in the east gallery. They
probably thought they were in a whisper
Five tow-headed youths with spectacles
and note books wrote industriously with
many frowns and wrinkles in their fore
heads during the entire service; but
there was no real disturbance until
thirteen boys in the gallery tramped out
during the hymn. Some of them bad4o
climb over the backs of chairs to getout.
The frivolous girl began to realize,
little by little, that she was gazing on a
Pantheon; she was viewing the rights
and ceremonies of many sects; and they
were all enthusiasts after their own pe
culiar -manner. She then realized as
never before that this is a free country
and that every man is free to worship
