Poor fello'v, he was unprepared for what

cence blushed, and meekly inquired
what tho lady wanted. "Well," said his
landlady, "she said that you have a hand'
kei chief which you think belongs to her
daughter, and that handkerchief belongs
to her, and she wants you to return it.
Her husband came with her, and I would
advise you to return it as soon as possible."

At a special meeting of the Board of
Begentb held on the 24th ult. a committee
was appointed to consider the feasibility
of fitting up the basement and third story
of tho University for the use of gentlemen
students, and to fit up the rooms under the
chapel for a kitchen anil dining hall. This ,
would accommodate sixty or seventy stu
dents. It is also their intention, we believe,
to erect, as soon as possible, a brick dor
mitory on, or near, the campus, for the use
of young ladios. We think our present
Board of Hcgonts mean business, and have
no doubt but that they will do all in (heir
power to forward the interests of the Uni
vorsity, by furnishing the students with
cheap and comfortable boarding places.
But as their moans are limited, would It
not be a paying investment for the citizens
of Lincoln to build a dormitory for gentle
men, similar to the one contemplated?
Cheap board is one of the essential things
to till tho University with students.
The Chancellor appointed Saturday,

throwing a bM from 0110 to the other, thus
wasting many a precious hour which they
should have improved. "What made it
worse was, that alltho Profs., being too tired
by their week's work to be present, trusted
to the honor of the boys, and that is the
way their trust was repaid. If these boys

get their names in a Sunday school book.
