tentiary treated them very courteously.
The faculty recently decided that no
meetings of any kind should lie held in
the University after eleven o'clock P. M.
This is sufficiently late to remain out at
night, and, if the societies desire to have
long sessions, let them commence in sea
son. Quite a numlwr of students who here
tofore had not placed their name on our
subscription list, have done so recently.
"We hope all others will do the same.

We notice that the reading room is bet
ter patronized of late; in fact ever since
the music room was removed to the room
opposite. Quite a mfmbcr of the young
men are now very regular in their visits
to the reading room. A great stimulus
teems to be given to read when sweet
musical accents, from charming voices
break the wonotonv of the scene.

of the society.
J. C F. McKesson, now teaching in
Stanton county, deserves no little credit
for the interest which he has taken in the
Studknt. He has recently sent us quite
a number of subscriptions, for which we
feel grateful. John will return to the
University next fall.
That young Soph will probably not
be so devoted to society interests hereafter,
as lo keep his girl away Irom home until

-The Palladian Society had a very
spirited contest on the occasion of the

They have the works of the most popular

shelves. Those desiring to buy books
had better give them a call.
The University Union at a recent
meeting decided to petition the Board of
Regents to furnish them a larger hall. A
committee was appointed to bring the
motion properly before the board. This
society certainly needs a more commodi
