Friday evening the Dolian literary
society gave a special program In the
chapel. The evening was given over
entirely to the old-timers. The first
number was an "Old Oration," given by
C. J. Allen. He was followed by E. G.
Woodruff, one of the boys who wore
the blue last year, In a very Interesting
talk on his experiences In Cuba. A very
pretty vocal solo was ' rendered by
Madge Wiggins. Charles Root gave a
highly appreciated recitation. The
final number was a piano' solo, "The
Scarlet and Cream March," played with
exquisite expression by Mr. Morgan.
STATE HISTORICAL SOCIETY.
The necessary information for com
pleting the card catalogue of the news
papers of the state Is now coming in
rapidly. The Intention is to have the
record of every newspaper of the state
that is now in existence or has existed
from the year 1854 down to the present
time. Librarian Barrett humorously
calls the list of defunct newspapers his
"newspaper cemetery." When a news
paper departs this life he will see that
it receives proper interment.
Editor J. H. Dundas of the Auburn
Granger has donated to the society
files of his paper reaching back to 1873.
A package of books was received last
week from the Grosvenor library, Buf
falo. This exchange of books between
the different libraries was made possi
ble by the law of 1893, which stipu
lated that fifty copies of everything
printed by the state could be reserved
for exchange with other libraries.
R. H. Woesel has placed in the First
Nebraska Philippine collection some
interesting trophies of the war. He
brought In a priest's robe, a Philippine
comb, part of a deck of Spanish, play
ing cards, a Spanish dagger, a pamph
let written in the Tagal language, a
document dated 1890 and signed by
Weyler, and other state papers.
NOT A SURPRISE.
It will not be a surprise to any who
are at all familiar with the good qual
ities of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
to know that people everywhere take
pleasure in relating their experience
in the use of that splendid medicine,
and in telling of the benefit they have
received from it, of bad colds it has
cured, of threatened attacks of pneu
monia it has averted, and of the chil
dren H has saved from attacks of
croup and whooping cough. It is a
grand, good medicine. For sale by
THE "H. A. A." ABOLISHED.
At a recent meeting of the Harvard
athletic association all the officers
handed in their resignations and the
old organization was abolished. The
old system of "steward" management
had been found so cumbersome that it
was thought best to do away with it,
and the "H. A. A." is now a thing of
the past, at least in so far as any con
trol of the track team by members
through an executive committee is
concerned. Henceforth the team will
be managed In the same manner as the
other 'varsity teams, the captains will
be elected by the members of the team
as heretofore, and the managers and
assistant managers will probably be
virtually selected by the captains with
the approval of the athletic committee.
Season tickets will bo Issued which
will admit to all the meets. Including
that with Yale.

DIVINITY COMMON ROOM.
A room has recently been fitted up In
divinity hall, Harvard, which Is to bo
known as the "common room." This
Is a feature of college dormitories
which Is new at Harvard, but which
has for some time been prominent at
Oxford and Cambridge in England.
The primary idea of the "common
room" Is to furnish a place where the
occupants of divinity hall may gather
for social purposes. The rooms are
furnished with taste and several paint
ings will soon be placed upon the
walls. A large number of newspapers
and periodicals will also aid In making
this a popular resort for the divinity
The "common room" was fitted up
through funds given to the faculty by
Rev. John W. Qulnby, who graduated
from the divinity school in 1871. A
tablet will be put up to his memory.
The rooms were formally opened last
Wednesday evening with a reception to
the members of the school.
RECENT GIFT TO THE LIBRARY.
The Viking club of Boston, an asso
ciation of about twenty Norwegians,
who are now citizens of the United
States, has recently presented to Har
vard a collection of one hundred and
fifty-five uniformly bound volumes of
Norwegian literature. They are chiefly
the works of modern authors. The ob
ject of the club In making this Inter
esting and valuable gift Is stated in a
letter to the president and fellows as
follows: "To show In a simple but use
ful way our appreciation of the fact
that courses In modern Scandinavian
literature are now regularly offered by
the university, and to express our hope
that they may steadily grow in favor."
