On the ovouing of tho 20th inst, Mr.
Uilcs H. Stebbins delivered a lecture, in
the University Chapol, under tho auspices
of the Ladies' Litorary Union. His sub

Tho lecture was interesting tluoughoul,
and the verdict of all was that they had
spent an hour and a half very profitably.
Financially, wo understand, the. lecture
was also a success, which speaks well for
the energy of tho ladies, who took hold of
it in earnest.

Senior "It takes two."
Chancellor "It requires two to make a

2d Senior (Whose manner shows that
he has had some experience with the old

than two sometimes."

ruped,do I violalolho rules of rhetoric?
Student: Yes sir, for the cow Is not the
only ruminant quadruped.
Student No, 2 (who is noted for his use
of high-sounding words): Chancellor, a
ruminant means anything that produces
lactoul fluid, does it not?
The Chancellor, overcome by his emo
tions, silently pointed to Webster's Unabridged.

One of tho students received tho fol

The other morning tho class in Craik's
English of Shakespeare had that well
known exercise, "Many a time and oft, have
you climbed up, to walls and battlements,
to tower and window, yea to chimney
tops, etc." When It was read the Chan
cellor linked a learned Junior what llgure
of speech It was, and before the Junior
could bring ills ponderous brain to bear
on the subject, an enthusiastic Senior,
with his acute countenance luxuriating in
self complacency, vehemently roared out,
"It's i'. pleonasm."

At a meeting of the Hoard of Managers,
held on tho Otli of Jan., 1870, Wayland
Bailey wa elected Business Manager.
The new Hoard of Regents held their
llrta meeting Jan 0th, and drew lots, as di
rected by the new Constitution, which re
suited in Regents Adair and Fitleld draw
ing the six year terms, Tattle and Gannett
the four year terms, and Holmes and Mob
ley the two year terms. The various stand,
ing committees were appointed, as also a
special committee to draft resolutions of
respect in memory of the late Regent J.
M. Hungerford. The board passed a res
olution that the hedge be removed from
around the dormitory on the Agricultural
farm, and the grounds be beautified as
much as possible. A resolution was also
passed that the fees paid by the members
of the Chemistry class be expended for the
benefit of the class. The election of a Chan
cellor was called up. There were several
applicants, anil the Hoard took the matter
under advisement, until their next meet
ing, which is on the 24th of March. Tho
committee appointed to draft resolutions
on the death of Regent Hungerford sib
mitted the following:
"The Hoard of Regents of the Univcr

Board adjourned until tho 24th of
Palladia Society. Tho first meeting
for this term was hold on the 7th inst.
The Society was called to order by How
ard Caldwell, ex-president, who called E.
P. Holms, president-elect, to tho chair.
Mr. Holmes delivered a short address,
which was full of excellent thought, and
was well delivered. He reviewed the past
history of the society and spoke of its fil
iate prospects. Tho first thing on the
programme was instrumental music, by
Willie llolunann, who understands tin ait
of bringing sweet sounds out of the or
gan. Next was a declamation by Mr.
Unangst, which was well delivered, and'
Mr. Unangst bids fair to be one of tho
best declaimers in the society. Mr. Sam
English followed with ono of his humor
ous essays, which never fail to bring
down tho house. Mr. Bonner followed
with a declamation, which lie delivered in
a lino style. Next was an essay by Mr.
Snoll which was well written and full of
fine thought. Mr. Illnton followed with
one of his humorous declamations, and
there is no one in tho societj' can render
a humorous piece with as much success
as Mr. llinton. J. C. F. McICosson then
read an essay which did him great credit.
It was one of the best we have hoard for a
longtime. The last in the class was Mr.
Hancock, who delivered an oration. Ho
delivered it in a very earnest style, and it
was easy lo see thai he was in earnest, and
understood his subject. Tho oration will
bo found In this number of the Studhnt.
.Miss Barker favored the society with somo
very fine music. Next in order was tho
deb tie. The question was, "Would it bo
fo'. the benefit of the country, to furnish
dd to the Southern Pacific R. It." McAl
lister, alllrmative; Field, negative. As
they are both very modest, we will not
say anything about the debate; only that
the audience appeared well satisfied. Tho
performers were all volunteers, and judg
ing from the rapidity with which the va
rious classes were filled, we should say the
members mean business; and we predict
this will be one of the most successful
terms in society work since the University
