We have seen boys turn somersaults,

perform other athletic feats. We have
sien them get "fighting mad" and hurt
each other. We never did think the girls
could get " lighting mad," but they did the
other day, in the arithmetic class; two ot

Our regular devil, with the assistance
of the little one, carried one of the forms
of the Stcdknt to the Dress office the
other day. Our devil led the way. Angels

which they invested in tally candy and

Wo had an opportunity during the
past month of listening to Prof. Sanga
men's display of the powers of the human
voice. He has the remarkable power of
imitating the various musical instruments
by his voice. Such as the guitar, tlute,
trumpet, drum, etc. In fact be is quite a
bniss band in himself. There was not n
large attendance, and those present were
principally youths of tender age.
The Meteorology class, in the early
part of the present mouth took a trip to
Mil ford, Seward county, for the purpose
of gathering geological specimens. Prof.
Aughey accompanied them. The wenth
er was fair when they started, but alter
they arrived at their destination, a snow
storm arose, thus preventing them, in a
measure, from making collections. Prof.
Aughey takes no little interest tn this
class and will probably attempt another
expedition of the kind at a more favora
The Chancellor announced in the
chapel not long since that if two or three
students should suddenly disappear from
the Univcrsiti, it might be taken for

discredit upon the whole school.

" Miss , shall we go to the concert
this evening?" Signed . The gen-

"Mr. . Oh, dear! t don't know
what to do. What will John say if I do?
Are you not afraid of hurling John's feel

The sidewalk on the street cast of the
Universitj- is something of a nuisance.
It is almost impossible lor two to walk
arm iu arm on this sidewalk. There are
but two boards on this walk, one on each
side, there being an opening iu the mid
dle. It is somewhat difficult for the aver
age individual to walk .straight on a
plank, even in a sober condition, when
nights arc dark. If this sidewalk re
maius much longer in this condition, the
students of dormitory No. 2 will hnve to
devote the hours of evening at home.
They are pretty well crippled now.
A literary contest will take place in
the chapel of the University, Monday
