Stuck both of Travis' girls on Friday evening, in the mud
on twclth street, and beyond all his aid. They were in the
middle of the rapid transit track, and far down in foggy dis
tance glows the cyclopean eye of the R. 7. -moving rapidly
nearer. Superhuman endeavors were made to heave anchor
but still the R. T. came on. At last when the heavy car
seemed about to crush the lovely girls one of them with a
wild shriek fainted. The shriek winging its way through
the foggy air sounded the tatoo on the engineers tympanum,
and brought the car to a stop. The conductor and the lonely
passenger dismounting succeeded in extricating the mud
puddle and allowing it to go on its way uninjured.
Rap-a-tap-tap, came a gentle knock at the botan
ical labratory door. The door was opened by our friend
Fungophilus and without appeared an apparent apparition in
the shape of a handsome young lady. She smiled sweetly
and caused a thrill to dart through Fungophilus heart. To
his inquiry as to what he could do for her she said that she
had heard that the scicntifs wanted a dinning room girl and
that she had come to apply. With a dull thud Fungophilus
fainted, while seven diatoms, nineteen bacteria and thirty
seven bricks similtancously hit the door. We took Fungo
philus up tenderly and laid him out. Such is lire. The
brightest expectations generally cud in the cooler, and the

themselves been agitating the idea of organizing a state
academy of natural sciences. The professors all favor it,
and as we have quite a number of scientific men in the state
it seems that the times for organizing such an academy are at
hand. A similar institution, it is true, has once existed; and
why not resurrect the corpse. We must not forget that
though enthusiasm is easily aroused here at home it will be
slow in going through the state. Still the object is well
worthy the attempt and by working it can no doubt be car
ried out. Knowledge will be wade the standard of admission
and its home will be the U. of N. Everbody, scientific or not,
who has the interests of our state and University at heart
ought to encourage this movement.
