CHARMS WITH HRR VIOLIN.
An attractive feature of tlio sacred
concert by the Bollstedt concert band
at the Auditorium Sunday was the ap
pearance of Miss Silence Dales of Lin
coln as violin soloist, with piano ac
companiment. The interpolation of the
number was a decided success, arid the
young Nebraska musician has every
reason to feel elated over tho greeting
Sho received. One of tho most marked
compliments paid her was tho almost
breathless attention given her by a
very large and intelligent audience. An
other compliment was the enthusiastic
applause given her at the close of tho
first number. So insistent was it that
Miss Dales was forced to respond.
Miss Dales' selection was the cele
brated "Airs Hongrois," by Ernst, in
three movoments. It is a brlllfant piece
of music and one that gives the soloist
opportunity to master extremely dim
cult tfichnic, and also allows of tho dis
play of emotional and Intellectual qual
ities. Tho chief charm of Miss Dales'
playing is Its delicate musical quality.
Her bowing is f reo and correct, and sho
has repose. If there is one thing she
lacks it is Are, but sho is young yet
and what she lacks will come with the
years. She finds a pure, clear tone and
The violin Miss Dales plays is a rare
old Instrument made by Alexander Gas
liano during his palmy days in 1724-8.
It is a beautiful instrument, perfect in
every part, and has the rare, rich tone
of tho old master violins, with tho fine
carrying tone. Omaha Bee.

ERS. One of the characteristics of the res
idents and among the students of tho
university is to uphold all of the good
things that happen here. The same
persons are always glad to hear praises
of Nebraska people from other sources.
That the graduates of this institution
are fast coming to tho front in all lines
is being shown In many ways. The lat
est criterion is given below:
Professor Charles R. Barnes of tho
University of Chicago, in "Science" of
September 8, 1899, says: "It is a mat
ter of some national pride that ecologi
cal investigations have been taken, up
vigorously by students In our own
country, and that from the new stand
point some valuable researches on plant
distribution havo already been made. It
is, perhaps, also a matter of local pride
that tho most extensive study has been
made in ono of our great western states,
whoso flora has been as yet compara
tively little altered "by the most potent
of all distributing factors, the hand o
man. Tho "Phytogeography of Ne
braska," published a year or two ago
by Dr. Pound and Dr. Clements, Is tho
first extended study on plant geography
!n this country along distinctively eco
logical lines. The care and complete
ness with which their investigation
was made render it a good example for
future students of our flora."
NEW HEATING SYSTEM.
During the summer months tho uni
versity presented a much more lively
appearance than it has at the same
season for somo years back. Soon after
the close of tho summer session work
was begun en a system of canals for
heating purposes. In a very short time
all of tho central part of the grounds
was a black mass of dirt, which mado
passage to any part of tho grounds dif
ficult In tho extreme.
Tho system whon completed will bo
ono of tho best in tho west. All of the
buildings will bo included in the cir
cuit. Tho main branch passes from the
house where tho heating plant is to uiu
south and around tho east end of tho
main building, giving off a branch to
tho armory, and ondmg at tho chemical
Tho walls of tho tunnel are con
structed of brick and oncloso a space
of several feet square. Pipes run on tho
inside of this for conducting tho heat.
In case any damago should occur in
any part of tho system it is posslblo at
any tlmo to enter tho tunnel and mako
tho necessary repairs.
