department will, no doubt, meet with success and more than
that their ultimate effect, as we hope, will be the chartering
soon of the college of fine arts.
It is a fact that Codding went to sleep at the feet of the
chancellor while that instructor was lecturing on international
law. Codding never did appreciate his opportunities.
Fewer conflicts have troubled students and professors this
term than for some time precccding. If this is the result of
the efforts of the chart committee its work is appreciated.
"It's an ill wind etc." The last blizzard was of great
service to Mathcwson and Males, for they covered a multi
tude of sins by shoveling the snow from the campus walks.
So far as we can ascertain the Palladian boys have survived
all the attentions bestowed upon them by the blushing co-eds
in pursuance of the ancient and excepted leap year custom.
The physical labratory has been opened for work and an
intelligent aggregation of Juniors may be found manipulating
glass jars, electric batteries and buzz saws at nearly any hour.
Extensive but awfully mysterious prcperations lor some
thing arc being made by the Junior class. It is surmised
that the class is figuring on the cost of a cheap man to
Maybe no reader of The Hesperian noticed it, but the
weather was rather cold here about the 15th inst. The most
reliable thermometer registered twenty-six below zero that
Some of the co-eds have been fearfully frightened lately
by the unearthly voices of the little tin whistle played upon
by some of the upper-classmen, "O, boys! please don't scare
the girls so.
The Palladians held an election January 6th to fill some
vacancies caused by the absence of Miss Wolfe and Taylor.
Miss Edna Bullock was elected critic, and T. H. Marsland,
Mr. P 1 says since New Year's he has been kept busy
steering clear of a certain wall (?) flower. It is not expected
that any one but P 1 will see the point. Ye editor is out of
town and can't very well explain.
Notice of Miss Cochran's musicalc was crowded out of our
last issue. It was even more enjoyable than those held on
previous occasions, and fully demonstrated the excellence of
instruction given by lhe music department.
E. Jno. Churchill,'85, visited his aluia mater last Monday.
He is practicing law in Cheyenne, Wy. In spite of legal prac
tice and life in the territory he is the same interesting indi
vidual that he was when he wrote bad jokes for The Hes
perian. Sophomores ought never to be allowed to fool with
languages that they know nothing about. One of the most
sedate and ordinarily cautious gentlemen of that class in try
ing to air lite knowledge of French before a Junior lady in
quired: "Aimez-vous moi?"
The Sophs challenged the Juniors to a snow-ball fight last
Thursday, and the challenge was accepted, but when the
wind suddenly turned and charged from the north with ten
thousand re-enforcements all parties Vere satisfied with what
snow the blizzard hurled against them.
Loafers are warned not to spit on the Hesperian carpet
under penalty of being fired bodily. Very many are not
aware that such a thing as a carpet existed in this office. We
were not aware of it ourselves until we had shovelled out
several feet of debris which had been accumulating for cen
turies. Many interesting and valuable articles were found.
Want of space prevents our publishing a list, but we will
mention various art'cs from time to time which will be rec
ognized by the knowing as "give-aways" on the former habi
tuts of the office.
J. A, Banctt has accepted a position in the college at
Kalamazoo, Michigan. This takes him from school but he
expects to keep up his work and graduate with his class this
year. He teaches Latin and Algebra and writes that he has
nice classes and enjoys the work.
After employing all his spare time on the computation for
nearly two weeks Prof. Caldwell has come to the conculsion,
that if a couple of juniors, whom we might mention, were as
big as they feel, there would be just room enough on th'S
earth for them and the smallest member of the senior class.
Some unknown large hearted individual left a little pack
age upon our desk, labeled "For the Busincsc Manager," '
It consisted of a very neat article of every day use in a plush
lined case. The Bus. Man. desires to return thanks to the
unknown giver, and wishes him many a happy New Year yet
Just as our last issue went to press we learned that the
Chancellor misstated the time for the reopening of school at
the last chapel exercises of this term. Knowledge came too
late to allow the correction to be made. If anyone has been
prevented from returning to school on lime we arc extremely
sorry for the error.
The exercise of one'spugilisticpowcrs may not be precisely
in accord with some of the teachings oi the Good Book, but
we must confess that an account of a recent exhibition of a
certain member of the faculty of his accomplishments in that
line caused a smile like the waves of the sea to ripple over
our usually benign features.
We invite the young ladies and all who can appreciate
good housekeeping to come in and inspect the Hesperian
office. While the rest of the students were having a good
time Messrs. Tinker and Saycr cleaned up this office in a
manner that shows their taste and skill, and rccomends them
better than any words of outs.
The braccing winter jveathcr we arc having at present ap
parently causes nearly everyone to believe himself capable of
doing something. The Preps and Freshmen have called
meetings "for the transaction of business." The Seniors
have not been heard from yet. It is surmised that those who
passed last term are snowed up this term.
The following note was picked up in front of the chapel
last week. It is addressed to a Palladian girl who marked
Your note is received, and I am relieved,
From the trouble of asking you;
And so I accept, in a manner adept,
And the slate will never fall through.
Wc would like to see the invitation that called forth such a
poetic reply, for it must have been a marvel beyond all of
The Y. M. and Y. W. C. A. social on the evening ol the
fourth was well attended but abruptly closed. The program
consisted of songs from Gospel Hymns; a few remarks by
Miss Benedict, president of the Y, W. C. A., on the object
of the associations in which she invited the new students par"
ticularly to unite with the associations; and a vocal solo by
Miss Pcnnock. Then a few minutes were spent in greeting
old acquaintances and meeting new ones, when the
janitor stepped in and without a word of wtrning, turned off
the gas. The victims of this trick could not receive it with
