The quiet which usually pervades the
University, is now frequently broken by
the shrill tones of Prof. Aughoy's panot,
to the no small amusement of the stu
dents. Seniors are considering the propriety
ol " laying out a crop" of whiskers and
donning plug hats for commencement,
but we think it will take the whole class
to raise a respectable beard.
Bad. Our editor-in-chief is a sober
young man, but passing through the door
the other day he came in contact with the
door casing and his nose looks vory bad.
It did'nt hurt the door casing any.

One of the students has left at this of
fice an amateur printing press with chases,
type and other necessary fixtures, which
is offered for sale at the low price of $15.
This is a bargain for anyone desiring to

an apprenticeship. For full particulars

The Student is not paying expenses.
If you wish to see it published, students,

The Association is under obligations to
the Chancellor for providing the Student
oflice with another imposing stone. This
is an article that has been needed for some
time to facilitate the make-up of our pa
per. The stone was prepared by John
C'urrie, who can furnish you with marble
mantel pieces, table tops or a monument
to mark your last resting place, in a style
rarely equaled. When the Student
" shufllcs off this mortal coil," we will
have its epitaph engraved on this stone to
"tell to all the world around" how a col

left us last fall to attend a course of loot

returned and will "fling his shingle to the

thriving towns. We can assure him that
there will be breeze enough in Nebraska
to keep lite shingle waving.
Since the above was in type, we learn
that he has located at Bennett. If you
should happen to bo in the vicinity of
Bennett, and should happon to bo taken
sick, call on Dr. Brace; if he kills you,
we'll treat the next time Ave see you.
Suspicious. Two Freshes of the gen
us boarduniSilves, were expecting to
make themselves comfortable lately on a
dinner of boiled chickens, which they had
procured from some source. A friend who
happened to call about this time was
shocked, and his mind was filled with sur
mises by the following episode: Enter

A well known divine in his prayer the
other Sunday, fervently returned thanks
for the great victory his parly had
acheived in the election for the city
school board. Our devil, who is some
what of a publican, takes exceptions to
tliis course of procedure, and says the
prayer should have been on this wise : " O
Lord, we have been victorious, but Thou
knowest how unworthy. P'r'apsa con

A certain Soph girl got very enthusiastic
over the matter. Happening to visit the
Adelphian Hall, a few hours afterward,
she noticed sundry marks of oleaginous
digits upon the door panel. In supreme
disgust she rushed for the Student oflice,
seized a basin of water and sonio soap,
tucked her delicate sleeves, and in des
perate energy applied the soap and water
with her lilly lingers to the obnoxious pan
nel. You may depend upon it that door
was cleaned. This peico of heroinoism
was the most sublime and pathetic specta
cle wo had ever witnessed. One of the
Sophs has since become enamored of this
fair; hu says no further recommendation
is needed by him.
