UNIVERSITY WINS FROM OMAHA.
The university team added another
victory to Its list by defeating tho
Omaha Y. M. C. A. team alst Saturday
afternoon, on tho campus, by a score ot
10 to 1. The gamo though one sided,
-was not u had exhibition. Tho playing
ot tho Varsity team was gilt edged and
better ball ploying could not bo asked
by tho student body supporting the
team. Only one error was scored
against the homo team during tho en
tire game while the Omaha's managed
to pile up eight. The work of Gordon
In the box was good, striking out zve
men and having excellent control ot the
ball. Taking into consideration that
the Omaha team had had no practice
whates'er this season, they played re
markably well. The team has an
abundanco of material in such men
as Craigh and Benedict both former
University of Nebraska men and who
played on tho old Varsity team in '97;
and in Crawford, ex-catcher of Univer
sity of Michigan team and Abbott first
baseman. Perhaps one of the most
notable features ot the game, if it may
be termed a feature was the slim at
tendance. Is it possible that out of
over two thousand students only one
hundred and fifty or two hundred are
loyal enough to support a good team.
Last Saturdays game with Omaha
was the last game on the camps before
starting on their trip. Upon returning
two more games are played here.
In first inning Benedict staled by
hitting an easy one to Reeder who
threw two out, Kennedy fanned.
Craigh and Crawford both singled, but
Abbott went out to St. Clair and scored
Craigh. The Varsity in their half run
in three scores. St. Clair hit safe, and
stole second. Here the Omaha pitcher
forgot himself and Reeder, Bliss, and
Gordon, got bases. St Clair was
caught napping on second and was put
out. Bolen hits to right and the ball
is fumbled; Reeder and Bliss score.
Rhodes went and Gordon scored. Bolen
was caught on second; ending the inn
ing. No more scoring was done until
fourth Inning; both sides being retired
in one, two, and three order. In the
fourth and fifth innings the Varsity
team ran In three scores in each,
caused by their ability to find Davi
son's curves and by the fumble of the
Omaha team. The Omaha men in their
halves continued to linger around
home plate, very seldom a man reach
ing first base. Nebraska scored again
in the sixth and this was the last scor
ing done in the game by either side.
Thebatting order was as follows:

BETTER EYES NOWADAYS.
"Defective eyesight is certainly be
coming more and more common, and
tho way tho use of glasses has In
creased would bo extremely startling
if we had not grown accustomed to
them by degress," said one ot a group
of Now Orleans business men. "When
I was a boy it was very unusual to see
a young person wearing 'specs; now
we encounter them at every turn. Our
grandfathers used to be proud of their
splendid vision, and in many cases It
was retined into advanced old age,
but at present a pair of perfectly
sound eyes are the exception instead of
the rule. I am willing to bet that you
can go up and down Canal street from
one end to the retail district to the
other, without finding half a dozen bus
iness men of over forty-five who can
get along without artificial aid to the
sight I paid a visit to a young ladies'
seminary not long ago, and out of one
class of thirty-two I counted eighteen
wearing glasses. That is a frightful
percentage. If it doesn't indicate that
the human eye is playing out under
the strain of modern conditions I
would like to know what it does
party while the other was speaking.
"The human eye is not playing out but
is merely receiving better care. The
statistics on the subject do not extend
back more than thirty or forty years
and are very imperfect but they in
dicate that there is less defective
vision now than there used to be, es
pecially among school children. I
know that is contrary to the general
impression, but it is a fact and is at
tributed to better lighted school rooms
und better printed books. We have all
read how some of our jjreat statesmen
studied their lessons by the light of
the fireplace, and if they ever did such
a thing, which I doubt you may rest
assured they paid for it with spectacles
in after life. The reason why so many
glasses are seen nowadays ic that the
slightest visual defect is at once cor
rected, while in former times it was
either ignored or unnoticed, and
though there are probably more spec
tacles among very old people you will
likewise find fewer very old people

NEW KIND OF DEGREE.
