hundred, and with Dr. Ross of tho

sentative from Nebraska.
The most enjoyable feature perhaps,
of tho whole convention was the num

interest to those especially engaged In
chemistry. Among the places visited
were Fraser's and Chalmers machine
shops, the Consumers Ice company, tho
stock yards and both Swift's and Ar
moura packing houses. Also smelting

the Young Men's Christian Association
of the slate of Nebraska will be held
at Hastings, February 7 to 10. Thla
convention is always looked forward
to with much pleasure among thu col--lege

than one half of the delegations is
made up of college men and the whole
convention has a collpge flavor. There
is a plan on foot now to srnd from the
university a delegation of Iwenty men
which is the limit that can be sent,
from any college or association. Dr.
Ward, who is chairman of the state
committee will be there, as he perhaps
more than any other man in Nebraska
has to do with the stale work.
Mr. A. W. Gilbert, who is at the
head of the missionary work in the lo
cal Y. M. C. A. will have a place on
the program and will urge that Ne
