It is queer about university appro
priations. They get knifed right and
left from tho first instant they come
within sight of the capitol.
' pour's Is not the only university which
has to contend with the "economy" of
tho stato administration. The U. of
M. dally appeals, with tears in its eyes,
to the solons of Michigan to deal with
the university as they ought to deal.
Hero in Nebraska there is no danger
that the uniyorsity . will get moro
money than it is entitled to. First tho
regents mako a conservative estimate
of what the income of the school will
be, then they ask for an appropriation
of a few thousand dollars loss.
Tho bill is referred to the proper
committees In both houses; they guess
that the Income will npt bo so largo,
cut down the appropriation a-few thou
sand dollars and report with the rec
ommendation that the bill be passed
The minority, which has not had a
chance- at tho bill, now gets In Its work
and the majority, to bo generous, rolls
a few little logs and the grand total Is
reduced a few thousand more (or shall
I say "less"?) Then the professors
in the university are appointed state
geologist or chemist, etc., and it occurs
to some brilliant thinker that their
salaries and expenses ought also to
come out of the university appropria
tion. So the school Itself loses another
thousand or two. This happens in both
A conference committee is now ap
pointed, which adjusts all the differ
ences by compromising on tho smallest
amount. The bill may then bo passed.
When it comps to tho governor he
ascertains by a mathemn'ical process
tho entire amount which has been ap
propriated by the legislature, reads a
few selections from his cnmpalgn ad
dresses upon the subject of 'strictest
economy." decides that it will cause
less trouble to cut down the univer
sity, nnd divides its appropriation by
Wo should all be thankful that there
are not threo houses In the legislature
and that there is no board of revision
to pass upon tho bills before they go to
the governor. The governor himself
should also be thankful, for then there
might not be anything left for him to

How delightful to sink back in tho

days gone by and listen to the latest
preacher. How pleasant to hear tho
door squeak as tho congregation grow

What excitement in tho fear that they
would finish together!

The big little girl took off her hood

"Hush, you naughty girl, or the man

Tho racket subsided and the sermon

Little sister got mamma's watch,
