THE HESPERIAN 5 I HEARD IiV THE HALLS. C. A. Beach was in town over Sunday visiting among his friends. V. G. Knight has lately been to Crete exchanging speci mens for the cabinet. Chancellor 'Manatt has returned from Colorado looking much improved in health. They say Scharman is thinking of joining the colored lodge of "Daughters of Rebecca." J. E, Larkin left the U. of N. last week and proceeded to recuperate his delicate health or & farm near Lincoln. J. 11. Holmes, 'Si, takes his place in September as Profes sor of Chemistry and Physics in a Washington, D. C, private school. Arthur Wicks had the misfortune to fall lately and break his arm. He is getting along nicely, however, and will soon recover. D. D. Forsyth lore himself away from his studies and the co-eds and spent a couple of days in Beatrice attending the stock sale. Oscar Stout, the successful amateur detective, went to Bea 'rice the iSth of last month to assist at his father's sale of shorthorns. Tutor White has had a tower built upon the east wing of the University for his Signal Service Observatory which is now in full operation. The prize medals for the competitive drill in June are oa ex hibition at Trickey'sjewelry store. They are beauties and are well worth striving for. Owing to the engagement of the opera house on the even ing of June ioth the Philodiceans will give their exhibition on the evening of the 9th. J. IT. Halligan, a former student, now of Ugallala, was in town just atter our last number went to press. He looks as if Keith County agreed with him. There seems to be some joke on John Green. Something about a hammock, a present to the afore-mentioned, etc Come John, explain these things. A- G. Warner will be here Commencement week. He has promised the Palladians a talk for "Palladian night" and al, are anxiously awaiting his arrival. In response to the professor's request to give a good exam ple of Carnivora a particularly brilliant Freshysaid he guess ed man was the highest example.' Over 1,000,000 trees were planted on Arbor Day. This es timate counts our Freshman tree as sixteen, by reason of its extreme size and great importance. We are of the opinion that the only thing necessary to mike Bowman a success at stealing milk from the original fountain is for him to learn better than to attempt milking on the left side of the cow. Kleine Polk has been wonderfully quiet (for him) since the lecture he received from John Green. John seems to succeed at everything he undertakes, even when he attempts to tame our wildest kids. Captain Anderson and his mess, either from lack of culina ry skill or superabundance of wealth, had a colored cook dur jug the encampment who served up the luxuries of the season in the latest style. Florists have been at. work lately setting out geraniums and other bedding plants in our flower beds. We ire glad to note the attempts to beautily the campus. The plants are from the Lincoln Floral Conservatory. Our friend Codding is no doubt doing a great work down in Kansas. But if he could have seen the tears shed by one oi our fair ladies, because he was not here, he would leave the land of sod houses and come back to his suffering friends. A large number of the students are industriously engaged in trying to solve the "pepper cake" mystery. We arc firm ly convinced that it is a huge joke but the many conflicting statements prevent us from ascertaining just who was the vic tim. Captains Anderson and Smith were the most successful of the cadets in bringing a roseate flush out on their olfactory organs. Some of the more unwise accuse thcra of using artificial means but we are inclined o think that it is the genu ine, old-fashioned article. At the invitation of Miss Smith the Junior class met at her residence last Saturday evening. The evening was fine, and the class well represented. All report an unusually good time though just such an one as they expected, having before en joyed Miss Smith's hospitality. Lieut. Dudley has bad luck with his tents on encampments. Last year his tent leaked so badly that it was very unpleasant to remain in it, and this year the ridge pole broke during the storm of Saturday night, allowing the tent to collapse, thus necessitating a removal to another. A man o'er full of that which cheers and inebriates came up, not long since, to give the cadets instructions in artillery tactics. The aid so freely offered and so kindly meant was of course highly appreciated by the boys who realize now more fully their defects in the art of war. H. T. Conley, a well remembered student of former years,. Saadayed in Lincoln the 16th. After several vain attempts by the city papers to locate him, he has taken the matter into his own hands and settled at Wayne, Wayne Co., where he is bow building up a good law practice. , Great anxiety has been manifested by some of the girls over prolonged absence of George Spurlock. We are happy, to re-., lieve the suspense by announcing that he has quit school and will clerk in his uncle's store at Salem. We are sorry to lose him and hope that next Fall will find him again in the U. of N. The base ball game of last Friday between the University team and the Capitol nine resulted in a draw game. The score stood twelve to twelve. Another inning would have bcen playcd except that it was tast growing dark and the boys were growing hungry. There will be another game to detcrmine the matter. These sultry days a palm leaf fan is indeed a blessing." Some of the boys have been so frantic for the use of them" that they have willingly sat by some co-ed for an hour merely to obtain a share of the breeze. When it gets $0 bad as thls' some charitable person should donate a few c&st-ofi wind-pro-' ducers to the unfortunate fellows. . Tire University cabinet lately received a tine specimen in the shape of a large beaver. The cabinet slowly increases in -its size and value, but a stronger feeling of interest througout the state which would induce the possessors of rare or curious specimens, to forward them to the University would do much" to further the interests of science in the institution. Once again the Freshmen are victorious, this time in base ball. Last Thursday afternoon the Juniors undertook to wipe , a nine of Freshmen out of existence. Similar attempts, in . the past have resulted In utter failure and this one was no ex. CANFY MFRINO HALF HOSE, 10c PER PAIR AT MAYER BROS, loth ST CLOTHDZRS.
