The student roaineth ovor tho country, Olncy hath a resi, and croquet Is, quiet. -One young lady remarked, that she ,i not euro how ho asked hor, If ho did not send it on a postal card. Since, wo aio to have u military Prof tlienuestlnn that agitates tho public Is, will the joting ladies havo to drill next term. Chancollor Bunion delivered the an nual address before the Faculty and stu. dents of tho Oskaloosa College Iowa. Wowoio informed it was a tine literary production. We noticed quito a number of an.. Ions faces watching tho doors of the icci mtion rooms, every limu a class was dis missed, just before tho late ontoitainments. It was near tho end of tho term, and the boys did not havo any cash to pay postage. Prof. Manly sent in his resignation at the late meeting of tho board of Regents, which was accepted. Wo aro sorry to part with the professor, but his health has been such that ho could not attend to his class duties, and has spent the. last year in trav. el, without improving much. We call attention to the new advertise- meat of E Ilallctt on the front page. Mr. J Hnllett keeps on hand a largo assortment of watches clocks &c. Students and otheis wishing to buy watches, jewel ry, or niiytliiug in his line will do well to patron. izo him. This will be the last issuo of tho Stit dkxt, during the present school year, so we wish our patrons, friends, and fellow students,, all a hearty good-by. Wo hope you may all enjoy the summer vacation, find come back next Sept. refreshed and invigorated for anothc year's labor. Subscribers linding an X after their nnim s will please take notice that the time of their subset iption has expired. It is enruestly to bo hoped that nil will renew hoir subscriptions next fall; thus ma terially assisting us in placing our paper in the front rank of literary journals. While we write this piece our alma mater is as silent as a tomb the students have about all gone to their respective homes and wo are "left alone in our glo ry," a feeling of loneliness comes over us, where but a few days ago all was Hfo and animation. What is life without sisters and brothers? Tho increase of tho University Cabinet this ycur was about 2."0() specimens, besides ahout ar00 more of a very -elect private nibinet, which belong-, to Professor Bailoy. The number of books in the Academic Library is Kill. That in tho Agricultural Library 180. There will probably 1m about $000 to l,o spent next year to increase the Library. The good-natured Junior who pre sides over the destinies of this papci, was "t vihltinjr mo Insane Asylum with a young lady friend, a fuw days ago. Ono f the rules of the Asylum is, that visitors mo not allowed to go through the wards idler 1 1.. jf. It was a fow minutes after four when our editor arrived, but as tho accomodating Assistant Superintendent did not wish to turn them away, ho said bo would show them through part of tho wards. After they had looked through all but ono female ward, they entered the buirgy, and were on the point of starting for tho city, when one of the young hid patients looked from a window of the un visitod waul, and called, "Allen! dear Allen! why are you going so soon? and J when will you be back ?' Tho editor de , olared that she must be talking to some one in the building. The young lady af. j tinned that she now knew why he" had jgone so late Unit they might not go I through the upper ward. j The popular Phographor V. II. Young, j has several remarkably excellent speci. I men of art, among them a large photo. i graph of Chancollor Benton. It is the best i production of the art wo have ever seen. Besides this aro several excellent views of tho University and its surroundings and interior. Students do you not want to pro cure a valuable memento of your school days ? Tho Board of Regents at their late meeting elected two now professors. Prof. Kmersoii to till the chair of modern Lan guage, and Prof. Calher to tho chair of Chemistry and Physics. Prof. Bailey was assigned to tho chair of Analytical Chem istry. In ourjudgment it would havo been better to have tilled tho chair of English Literature ami Oratory than to have had two In tho departments of Chemistry. Tho campus presents a finer appear, auce now, than wo have ever seen it. The flower beds are gay with many colored flowers, and show the neat and artistic lasts of our late Janitor. The trees are all green and lively, and the grass plots have a very neat appearance. We are in hopes that the campus will not be allowed to run down during tho summer months. The examinations of the past term closed Tuesday June 20. They were more satisfactory to both students, and profess, ors, than any previous examination since the school started, there weio very few who did not pass, and we believe there was a larger amount of honest work done than is usual when students arc affected with spring fever, as badly as some of the stu. dents appear to be. Tho students at Dormirtory no. 2 had a dolightful timo a few days before the close of the term. A supper was given in honor of F. 0. Morton the vice president elect of the Palladiau Society. Strawbor ries and all the icquisitcs tor a feast were in abundance. Toasts were proposed and eloquently replied to. The occasion will over bo remembered by those who prticl pated. Mind, Mattkh, Monky, Beauty. Web. stor's Quarto Dictionary, as now published, has cost more intellectual labor, more monoy in Its "getting up," and contains more matter, and a larger number of beau iiful engravings, (MOO or more, with four pages of colored plates,) than any single volume over bofore published for popular use in this or any other country. It is largely the standard in England as well as in this country Bell & Daldy, the pub linhcrc. of Bohn't. libraries, are the Lon dot: publisher of this magnificent volume. There was quite a mad-dog excitement in tho University a short time ago, some of tho boys saw a dog panting from tho heat and supposing it was mad ho run shout ng mad dog! mad dog!! Tho refiain was caught up by all tho boys around the build lug and they hastened to gain tho cupola whom they said thoy could got a good view of the dog. They coiud not bo in. duced to come clown however until one of the brave Profs, had come with a needle Kim, and after viewing tho field can-fully, pioiiottnccd the dog not mad, but hunting , u place to get out of the heat. ! Maiiimici): Kinney Arguello At the residence of the Bride's lather on the 28 tilt by the Rev. Father Bosco. Steptoo Kin- ney of Nebraska City, and Miss Josephine Argueiloof Santa Clara, Cal. Mr. Kinney attended the University tho first year of its existence, and was an act. ivo member of the Palladiau society. Mr! Kinney will make his mark in the State. Miss Arguello, as we have been informed is a doseenden toft lie old Spanish stock of California. Her grandfather and great grandfather both having been governors of California under the Mexican govern, meut. A Senior and Soph, just before one of the late examinations started from the Uni. versitydown Eleventh St. the Senior was telling a big yarn, when they came to the crossing that leads to the residence of one of the University's daughters. Both stopped short, and then ensued about ten minutes of a painpul suspense each try ing to entertain the other. Finally Senior started down the cross street remaiking that, " I had an errand this way." Soph: , " I thought you was going home, or we might have kept right on, as I have an errand this way too." Then ensued a tough race, for the first quarter of a mile they were even, but after that the reporter of the above, lost sight of them. Our gentlemanly Janitor Mr. McLain leaves us at the close of the present term, : he goes to Paynesvill Ohio to deliver an address before the members of the alumni, of tho academy where he graduated, from there he goes to the Centennial to spend n few weeks, and fiom thence to Virginia, where he proposes to purchase a farm, and settle down for life. The students arc un der many obligations to him for his many kindnesses, especially in regard to society matters, and as a small token of respect thoy presented him with a tine gold pen anil holder the best that could be purchased in the city. George promised to use it in letting the students know how he was get ting along. The best wishes of all con noctcd with the University go with him, and wo know of no encomium that we could give him so good, as we heard the Chancellor pay him a few days before ho left. One of the students remarked that it would be hard to find any one to fill Georges place, as well as he had done, tho'Chancel lor replied, "No. Just about one in ten thousand will do as well as George." At tho close of the graduating exer clsos on the 21 inst just as the Chancellor was going to pronounce the benediction, Mr. Allen W. Field stopped upon the ros trum with a fine Silver tiltingwator service and in behalf of the students presented it to Chancellor Benton as a memento of I their love and respect for his care and j watchfulness in their behalf. Mr. Field ! made the following neat little presentation ! speech : I ' - .. ... . I.. ,...,. ..IP ! HKI.OVKI) C.'UAXCTI.l.CHi: 111 Ut'llUll in student and the alumni of the University I have the pic asm of presenting to you this token of their high regard and love. In making this presentation a cloud of in cidents, that would account for this ex pression of esteem, crowd themsolves up on the memory, booking utterance, but which to cnumcrato would b an endless task Whon timo shall have sea tercel us far and wide and tho theories, formulas and idioms we are now toiling to compre hend are all forgotten, still will bo im- pressed upon our minds the recollec tion of I lint one, who during the formative period of our lives, by precept and exam pic, directed us to a pure and noblo man hood. We ask you to accept this oll'orlng, not (hat as you refresh your thirst from Its cooling fount, your memory of those who stand before you may be refreshed, for without (his aid we feel assured that you would carry with you a lively interest for our future welfare, but It is rather to givo material form to that tribute that tho stu dent's heart has already offered in return for that fairness, courtesy and liberality which has ever marked their iniercour-o with you. In all your future labors the best wishes of the friends of the Universi ty will attend you. The Chancellor was taken entirely by surprise, he did not havo the least suspi cion that there was a plot formed against him, until Mr. Field stepped on the plat form, when ho was somewhat surprised, as heevidently thought, Mr. Field intended to deliver the benediction, without an invita tion. At the close of Mr. Field's remarks, the Chancellor accepted the present in u lew appropriate remarks: before he fin ished ho was so much affected that ho could hardly finish his remarks. PERSONAL.
