Considerable has been said about

The student who carries a piece of

two probabilities either it is a piece of

Exouusion. Yo local of the Student
was so fortunate as to receive an invita
tion from the state editorial fraternity, to
attend an excursion to Brownville on the
35th of February, and of course we ac

enough to secure a young lady for the
trip, we took our handorchief and started.

comes to us in a new form, it now being
in the shape of a magazine. It looks well
and is a credit to Nebraska as an amateur
journal. It has got a new editor, and he
throws down the following in his salutato
ry: "All hail, blustering New Year! Wei
come to these latitudes, thou boisterous
cherub, though thy hoary beard shakes
many an icicle, and tho harsh breath rush
es from thy frosty nostrils somewhat too
fiercely for an infant." Bad case. If the
