An old-time student, who was out in
Silvemall's surveying party last summer,
up near the head waters of the Missouri,
says that John was an assiduous collector
of .specimens. lie had the University
museum in his eye, it would seen. John
picked up every old rock in the whole
country 'round that looked queer and
piled them into a sack. At last the sack
became so heavy thai no one would carry
it and when camp broke to go over I lie
mountains, Silvernail had to hklo li is col
lection in an old mill, where it is to be
hoped it may be found on the return tour.
We may expect to see John trudging into

Mr Isaac Powers was chosen, a gentleman,
us we understand, of liberal education
and line points. He is flute senator from
Dakota and Burt. In classifying the new
regents according to the only manner
in which university regents are classified
nowadays, that is on a religious basis
Mr. Powers must bo placed on the bvoad
gunge side and Mr. Fifleld remains what
he was before, and as his ministerial habit
would signify, a Fairfield man, that is
to enlighten the unitiated a man on the
board of regents who will support the ad
ministration of Chancellor Fairfield, as
against the attacks of the peculiar party
who are trving to overthrow that admin

the majority on the board now, four to
two, and what the result or results may bo
is a speculation to be entered upon witli
the most intense caution. That the nom
ination was a matter of importance to cor
tain University professors was told from
their presence on the tloor of the conven
