The first game of foot ball for the '99 university team took placo on the university grounds Friday, September 30. The game was between the Lincoln high school team and a mixed eleven of the first and second team of the university, which ended in a victory for the university, the score being G to 0. Tho game started by a "kick-off" from the high school and during the greater part of the first half the ball was carried scarcely twenty-five yards from center. During the latter part the university succeeded, by successive center rushes, in gaining ground until a touch down was made by Williams just as time for tho first half was called. After time was called a goal was kicked by Ringer. The last half was played with a new line-up by the uni versity, but neither side succeeded in scoring. The h.'gh school played a steady game throughout. The men played to gether and made several good gains by end runs. The" -"university eleven was ot so well organized and tho trnm wnvlr wns nnnr NiiTrmrnim 'film. 1 . - TP bles and thoughtless plays occurred throughout tho game. The game as a whole was of little benefit to either side except as a cri terion as to future playing. Upon the whole, tho students of the university had little reason to feel encouraged. Several times they proved to be . ex tremely weak, especially in the center of the lino. The absence of Stringer, Bencd'ct, Carver and Tyson from tho game weakened the playing of the men roticeably. The high school boys played well to gether. Raymond, Eager and Shedd carried off the major portion of tho honors. "With a little more develop ment and steady practice there should be no doubt as to the outcome of the high school game with Omaha, -which is to be played In a short time. The univers.ty team will necessarily need a great deal of development be fore the game with Ames the latter part of this week. The Ames team has been in training for the past two months and is now in the pink of con dition. With this they have tho ad vantage of their home grounds, thus giving thom a very good chance tt add another' victory to those already gained over the university.

CORN TASSELS. Now that tho second edition of "Corn Tassels" Is about to appear, it is well to know how tho former ono was received. Among tho favorable com ments that was received at the time was tho following from tho Woman's 'tribune of Washington, D. C: "The dedication of this little volume of poems gives the keynote to the book, 'To '.ho state I love, Nebraska, and to her people.' It is fairly redolent of tho breath of the prairies and the corn fields, whose distant horizon leads tho thought out to tho inflnlto as does the sea. The bright young face of the poet appears as tho frontispiece. Mr.. Dun roy is proud to bo known as a Ne braskan, whose Inspirattton is the di roct outgrowth of its fields and skies, and wlnt'Tio ono who has ever lived in tho slate can help but feel he has ex pressed in this little volume In fault less rhythm. "The first poem, 'Nebrasky,' pic tures the level land, the broad, flat rivers, tho bluest sky, the loving winds, the fields of 'emerald bladcd corn that swishes In the breeze, the little clumps of supple wilier trees,' that .make 'Ne brasky. "And this is not all that our poot finds to inspire his muse. There are tho prairie night, the lullaby of the corn, tho dawn, the grasses waving in stormless tides, tho flower which 'The sun has photographed upon the' field, a myriad golden pictures of his face;' the river 'with shifting isles of shal low sand,' which made it seem 'like a silver ribbon blotched with gold;' tho prairie view where tho boundless levels lie 'beyond the aching eye's deep straining, and then farther still tho floor which meets the bonding sky;" tho amber autumnal robes; these and tho wind and flowers and bird songs are the rich material for our poet's rhymes. "Nor although happiness hero, has he limited himself to these; there are homely poems of life, of love and ot heroism, all showing a poetic sense and an appreciation of the good and the true." MUSIC.
