John Green loves pets especially guinea pigs.
J. P. Hartman of Kearney came down as a delegate.
The impromptu cane rush was a success, malgre le chan
celier. When the adjutant commanded "sound off" the band
sounded way off Sergeant.
The state has loaned ten guns and equipments to the Uni
versity, so the cadets arc all provided with them now.

and is training for a Mississippi bull-dozer. He practices on
Miss Rachel Manly went as a delegate to the National Con

If we had ever dreamed that the want of a piano in chape'
for one day would cause such a marvelous vocal solo asi t did,
that never would have happened.
If those students who carried off a cart-load of kindling
wood from R. street between 13th and 15th will return the
ame nothing will be said about it. Cop.
One of our enterprising preps was just building a flat-boat
to run on the pond at the foot of the east steps when it dried
up. He can save it for we'll have lots of use for it before wc
get a side walk.
The scholars in any primary school are said to be most
disorderly when visitors aie present. The same may be said
of college students if visitors come around about the time
Freshmen begin to wear canes.
The Classical Society has commenced its work for the year.
Latin is supposed to be the only (?) thing spoken by the
members, with Gieek for a change. They are taking Virgil
in large doses and when he is exhausted will attack Homer.
For reasons best known to themselves, the PhHodiceans no
longer hold forth in the chapel. At present they occupy the
room of Prof. Hunt, thus for the second time in its history
used for a society hall. They removed their piano and until
a new one was secured we sung to the accompaniment of
Prof. Hunt's voice.
It is the rule of this office to receive no visitors between
business hours, and hence we have formed the habit of
shaking our head at those who look through the glass door.
We shook "no" two or three times at a visitor last Monday
and then thought wc recognized somebody. It was A. H.
Bigclow '87. We let hhn in and made it all right with
The first number of The Hesperian had a hard time to
get hatched. The new board of editors were elected but a
short time before the paper should have appeared. This made
it difficult to grind out the requisite amount of ' copy" on
time. Then when the type was all up the compositor got
hungry but that's old. The compositor playfully dropped a
page on a fly which was taking a duat bath on the floor of
our sanctum. Then the chrysalis stage by which term we
will hereafter designate the period, more or less prolonged,
which elapses after the paper is sent to the printer before ex
cited groups of students are seen searching its columns for
what isn't there was unusually long; why, the printer only
can (perhaps) tell. In the future we hope to do better, and
to the hordes of students eager for news (by the way, very
few have paid up) we will say that The Hesperian will, al
lowing for the usual fashionable delay, be out pretty nearly on
time, unless something happens to delay its publication.
Only $1 a year, and it's your duty to subscribe.
Dr. B. B. Davis, the newly nominated regent, attended
chapel and the cane rush last week.
A. A. Monroe, '84, visited among his friends here. He

Regent J. T. Mallalicu was a delegate from Buffalo Co. and
naturally came up to sec how things were prospering.
Don L. Clark was in Lincoln during the convention and of
course spent considerable time in the Un:vcrsity halls.
G. B. Frank forter, '86, is preparing a treatise on the gcol
ogy of this state. This is a part of the work for which he
expects the degree of M. S. in '8S.
Hon. A. W. Field has been one of the University's most
honored sons in the past and now takes his place upon the
bench in place of Judge S. B. Pound, resigned.
H. T. Conley and wife (formerly Miss Addie Pollard), of
Custer Co., visited their many friends here lately. Mr. Con
ley was a delegate to the republican slate convention.
Sometimes one point in law is better than nine or their
equivalent, as when, the other morning, that freshman's cane
was in some other freshman's possession all at once.
Prof. Hunt lately had the pleasure of a visit from an old
classmate, Prof. Ensley, df the Alkorn University, Miss.
This is a state university exclusively for the colored race, of
which Prof. Ensley is a member.
Wc were glad to see 0;car Stout on the campus last Mon
day, especially as he talked of returning to school. He would
have graduated in '87, but staid out all the year to tell coL
lege yarns in a railroad surveyors' camp.
The cadets and the cadet band assisted in escorting the gov
ernor from the depot to the state house. Many of the cadets
did not take part, however, as they had not yet piocured
their uniforms or been sufficiently drilled.
It is rumored that Prof. Little had quite an exciting chase
up the tower after a couple of boys who disturbed his peace.
It is supposed that the boys expected a way to open into the
vaulted heavens when the top of the tower was reached.
One of our theoretical warriors solemnly announced in class
the other day that the length of the double step was 10S
nches. He probably referred to the stepping done by some
of our regulars in getting away from two or three Indians.
The state convention of the Y. M. C. A. meets at Nebraska
City, Oct. 2023. Our college association will be represented
by two or three delegates. There seems to be some misunder
standing as to whether our Y. V."C. A. is to be represented
there or at Crete.
Even the 2nd Preps have become imbued with class spirit.

Troycr; V. P. Giace Peishing; Sec. Louise Pound; Cor. Sec.
Mary Holmes; Treas. F. E. Bishop; Hist. J. B. McDonald;
Sergt. at Arms, A. W. Stockton; Door-keeper, A. E. Perrin.
Senior oiating in chapel seems rather unpopular here now,
as shown by the very small audience that listened to the first
oration on the nth inst. Most of the orator's "hostile audi
ence" staid away. This was through no disrespect to the
orator, but, as wc understand, because the students do not
favor the idea of chapel orations. Those who staid away
made some disturbance by loud talking in the lower halls.
The freshman clan can't carry canes. After the scuffle in
the halls the freshman and sophomore clancs quibbled about
conditions fur over a week, but finally came to terms and had
