Did you read the Nebraskan's "Confession's of a Fake
Eater?" -If not, buy a copy at once and do so. It is very
short and concise, but straight to the point.
But come, let us reason together, and be wise. Let us drink
and bo merry. Let us drink at the fountain of experience and
bo morry over a huge joke. Lot us say in the language of an
alumnus of our University, "Another sucker caught, but we
won't bite any moro." Lot us resolve never to put confidence
in an anonymous letter, oven though it bo found in such a
respectable place as the City Library. Lot us determine, if
ever placed in such circumstances again, to interview the pur
ported author before publishing. Let us say wo have had
enough of yellow journalism, and are content with the pure
and unadulterated facts, oven though they are not quite so
Among the now books recently added to the general library
are Kipling?s new volume "A Day'u Work," Ian McLaren's
now book "Afterwards," and a selection of "Frontier Stories"
by 0. Warmon, reporter for the Denver Republican. This
book contains a very realistic description of the killing of Bob
We are glad the Nebraskan has condescended to admit
the truth, even though it dooB so in a very meek way. We
are not so sure but that it still holds to the opinion of having
picked up a "great 'scoop,' considering the individuals con
cerned." Wo know it is very unpleasant to bo taken in as a
dupe; wo would prof or to be taken in some other way. We
know it is humiliating on April Fool's Day to attempt to pick
up a dollar which is nailed to the sidewalk. We believe it
must bo moro humiliating to pick up a fake letter purposely
left as a bait for the first chance sucker. We can not conceive
the pangs of sorrow and humiliation that must come from hav
ing beon convinced so thoroughly of the genuineness of such
an anonymous fake as to publish it as a "great 'scoop'," and
and then discover later that wo had instead beon 'scooped our
solves. We extend our sympathy to the bereaved. Wo sor
row at their misfortune, but we can not help it. Wo know
how hard it is to gild a grief with tears, and yet wo wish to
give to every man his duos. Wo give the Nobraskan dues for
a little grief.
As editors of the Hesperian wo fool duly and sadly re
sponsible for tho error into which the Nobraskan has fallen a
victim. Wo will take all tho blame onto ourselves. Wo will
bo moro cautious hereafter in admitting misleading locals into
tho columns of our paper. Wo are vory sorry that a chance
nows item about a certain "stag party" should have beon taken
as tho nucleus of such a sensational fairy talo as filled the
space of our friendly contemporary a week ago. Wo are
pleased that the editors find solace and comfort in their be
reavement in shifting the responsibility of their mistake.
A vory interesting and able review of somo late books was
published in a recent number of the Helena Daily Independ
ent. The author was Miss Edna Bullock of tho city library at
Helena, Montana; the cause of tho sketch was tho purchase of
many of the books of the library authorities in that city. Miss
Bullock is known to tho students of this University as the
laday, otherwise cataloguer, who protected the interests of
this University's library during tho time when tho preceding
librarian and professor of Bibliography hold office.
A Piano at a Nominal Price.
Chicago's largest music house, Lyon & Hoaly, have bought
for a fraction of its coBt, tho entire Btock of Lyon, Potter & Co.
These splendid pianos are offered without reserve until all aro
sold. In this stock are a number of now Stoinway pianos,
and hundreds of new and second hand pianos, including in
struments of tho following well-known makes: Sterling, Hunt
ington, A. B. Chase, Yose, Fischer, Weber, Ohickoring, G.
W. Lyon, etc., etc. In square pianos there aro fine-toned in
struments at $25, $4:0, $60 and upwards. In Upright Pianos
neat instruments at $100, $120, $H0, $150, $105, $190, $200
and upwards. In Baby Grands some nice specimens at $250
and upwards. Nearly all these pianos wore intended to soil
for at least double their clearing sale prices. A good plan
would be to order a piano, leaving the ooloction of it to Lyon
& Healy. However, they will, sohd a list and full particulars
upon application. Any piano not proving entirely satisfactory
may bo returned at thoir expense Address simply, Lyon &
Hoaly, Chicago. Distance is no obstacle in taking advantage
of this remarkable chance to obtain a piano, for, in proportibnP
to the saving to bo made, tho freight charges aro insignificant.
Write today ao as to avoid disappointment.
