Two hundred and sixty-flvo students
are taking work in American history.
This is the greatest number which has
'ever been registered in the depart
ment at ono time. It is ten per cent
more than took the work last year.
There are more students in this de
partment than were in the university
when Prof. Caldwell, head of the depart
ment, graduated in 1889. Up to 1882
the university had less than this num
ber of students. Thirty-two courses
arc offered in this department. Besides
this there arc some six or eight courses
given alternately, so that it would re
quire a student about two and one-half
years to complete all the work offered

four instructors. Prof. Caldwell lect

FUN FROM OUR EXCHANGES.
In sadness was my soul cast- down,
Then bloomed a sight to give me aid;
Anil 'on its slefvo a tag marked
'Twas Daphne in a charming gown,
HER 'CONTINUOUS PERFORMANCE.
Jane played solitaire and, see,
Paresis Is the penalty;
Not for Jane, though nay, oh, nay
But for thoBO who watched her play.
A CHURCH EPISODE.
The preacher was nn ugly man,
Who wabbled in liis gait,
And so his parish made a plan
To let him abdicate.
Ho left, but fate was fair, at least,
And fixed these folk unkind;
On thorn she dumped a pretty priest,
Who wabblod in his mind.
