PREPARATORY MEDICAL SOCIETY.
Those who heard Dr. H. Glfford of
Omaha In his lecture to the Prep. Med
ics on last Wednesday evening were
afforded a rare treat. The society
should feel very proud In having se
cured such an able man, he being ono
of the most eminent oculists of the
west, a noted contributor to German
and American periodicals and author
of several valuable works on the anat
omy of the eye. His talk dealt with
the abuse of professional opportunities,
coupled with the abuse of tho latter by
the public and the relation of the uni
versity, etc, a medical education. The
talk was greatly enjoyed and thorough
ly appreciated by those present.
A RECOGNIZED FACT.

from the editorial columns of the VI-dette-Reporter
of the University of
Iowa. It follows:
"C. B. Cooper, of Lincoln, Nebraska,
has come up out of the west. Ho has
been connected with the University of
Nebraska and is hence entirely compe
tent to undertake the important duties
devolving upon him as Professor Ans
ley's assistant. Tho regular mannor In
which tho now appolntmqnts from tho
tlmo of election of tho professor of En
glish have boon going to tho unlvorsity
located at Lincoln Is edifying In tho ex
treme. It is eminently popular with
tho students and wo vonturo to Join In
tlio general rejoicing that tho univer
sity has at last fallen upon an unfail
ing reservoir from which to draw
professors and instructors as thoy may
bo needed. It gives rise to a hopo that
wo may soon havo a delightful Httlo
oasis-state of Nebraska, located in our
own congenial cllmato."
