it in the story of Don Juan as "a long,

Marlowe has this kiss in mind when la-

We cannot help but think that it was
a ease of forgetfulness to leave that bot
tle of vinegar on the door-step of that
young ludy. Surely the student who did
that job must- have been us bad as the
man -who forgot he had a wife.
a hole in his pocket. If he had been an
old student he would never have been
so foolish as to have had only one cigar
when he met that Prof.
He could not stay always, but as his
name was hurt, his prospects for the fu
ture were ruined, and as his girl raised a
row, he packed his collar-box and went
home to his maternal relative, where the
wicked cease from troubling and the good
little boys dont need to hunt up a Police
Judge with whom to advise.

the meaning of the term "Plucking;" wo
have found the following explanation:
"When the degrees are conferred at Ox
ford, the name of each person Is read out
before he is presented to the Vice Chan
cellor. Tho proctor then walks up and
down the room, so that any person who
objects to the degree being granted may
signify the same by pulling or"plucking"

On the lflth of the present month, we
were painfully surprised at the announce
ment of the sudden death of our friend,
Otho Scott. He was suddenly taken ill
on Wednesday, and at 4 A. M. on Friday
breathed his labt. Otho entered our Uni
versity in the fall term of 1 873, and en
joyed the respect of all who knew him.
He was aged 18 years and 10 months.
His patents reside near Weeping Water,
in Cass county, and owing to the time of
the trains were unable to get here; how
ever, the students showed him every at

panied the body down to Plattsmouth
where it was taken in charge by his rela

his old home, and buried beside his father
and two brothers. On Friday evening,

which Otho joined when he first entered

of their deceased brother, adjourned al
