THE HESPERIAN 8TUIENT.
The sociuhlo given to the students h .
the Chancellor and Ills ostimuhle huly oil
Thanksgiving eve, was one of the most
pleasant alVuIrs it was over our happiness
to participate in. All tho students of
tho present year and a mi in bur of those
of the la t year, were invited, and but
few remained away. The large parlors
of the Chancellor's residence were tilled
to overflowing with a joyous crowd of
young people, properly seasoned by the
presence of a few elderly persons. A'
seven o'ol"'jk, prompt, the guests be rm.
to How in, and continued in an aim i
unbroken stream till nearly eight. Ai'iu
the accustomed formalities were over, the
company engaged in cheerful and often
hilarious social intercourse. Each one
seemed to exert himself to make the oc.
easion agreeable to others as to himselt,
and especially so, the members of the
host's family. Everyone was pleased,
and "all went merry as a marriage bull,"
until "refreshments 1" was spoken, when
tlic company tilled the dining hall and
partook of u splendid repast.
About this time one particularly prem
ising Prep, might have been seen looking
for the whiskered Freshman who had
seen lit to conduct his (the Prep'p.) part
ner to the supper room without ask or
lief. A speedy compromise was, how
ever made, and he became immediately
happy. After supper all again betook
themselves to the parlors, attracted by
the tine music given by different parsons
in tbe company. Those present enjoyed
the atlair very much. In fact, it is the
tale of an evening not oft repeated.' At
mi early hour the assembled guests began
to take their departure. No late hours
were kept. Too much cannot, be said in
compliment to the host, and hostess and
their entertaining family, upon their
otlbrts to interest so large a number of
students, most of whom were strangers to
each other excepting their class inter
course. It win throughout un enjoyable
Falladian Society Exercises.

class was represented by Messrs. Street,

acquisition of territory is beneficial to
the United States." The following per
sons performed with credit to themselves
and the Society: Messrs. Unpen and
Stevenson on the nthrmativc, and Messrs.
Metcalf and Worley on the negative.
The hall was cold and the ladies were
compelled to leave before the perform
anco was closed. We hope they will not
bo discouraged by this evening us the
room is now well heated.
