Ilros. Polk and Stout indulged in the extravagance of a
pleasure trip composed of a carriage and two ladies last Sat
urday. Our old friend Fulmcr (that is old in our acquaintance only)
has returned from his work in Arkansas. lie looks hale and
hearty and says he intends to (ill the hearts of us fellows
with envy hy means of his beard and the lofty manner of
leisure like airs which he intends to assume.
Although no announcement has been made it seems that
the scientific profs have tacitly consented to reduce the work
two hours. This much desired consummation came about by
a change in the curriculum, devoting two hours to either
physics or crystallography. As both professors refused to
teach neither was taught. Strikes seem to have become
The Junior boys propose to fly high next year if there are
any wings obtainable. At a meeting held last week a resolu
tion was unanimously adopted that the members of the class
be distinguished next year by plug hats and Prince Albert
coats. Committees were appointed to make the arrange
ments and next fall the handsome and dignified appearance
of the senior class will be the talk of the city.
A meek looking girl with school books under her arm
dropped into the store of Perkins Hros. about a week ago and
asked to take home a pair of shoes. She said she was
attending the Slate University and was stopping at 1602 T
street. She was allowed to take them, and it now turns out
that there is no 1602 T street, and no girl attending the Uni
versity having the name she gave. Tints is woman's sphere
It is now the time of the school year for the students to
betake themselves to the various studios of the city and se
cure likenesses of themselves for general distribution. Thk
Hkm'kuian wishes to inform all who contemplate taking
such a step that the best photographers of the city advertise
in its columns, and that its business manager has ordeas for
several dozen photos which he will dispose of at some ad
vantage if he is consulted soon.
Some fellows seem to be unable to take a little grain of
comfort and rest, and hence toil and work through the vaca
tion ;is hard as during the term. If there is anyone thing
'"ore than another which (its a fellow for continuing woik it
is holing, Wc speak from experience when we say that to
loaf io the i)cst advantage requires considerable science. We
also have found that the 15. & M. depot and the railing
around the Democrat office make the best loafing places.
Judging from the amount or sulphur dioxide present in the
atmosphere of the halls and zoology laboratory the coal used
J give us the necessary wnrmth must be anything but pure.
he gas, as all know who have occasion to use matches, is
very disagreeable and causes a distasteful phlegm to
gather in the thioat. Too bad; but no help for it we suppose,
except that as Hill Nye says, in our poor weak way" we
would suggest that all brands of coal do not contain the same

In another column will be found a short article which was
written some months ago by an eminent Harvard man, and
which has been widely copied by college papers. It is not
l'ie policy of this paper to print any matter not original
w'th the editors; yet the article mentioned is so meritori
ous and such doctrine is so fitting to the present condi
tion of athletics in this institution that no apology is neces
sary. We recommend all to read it, and profit by it. As
yet our gymnasium is a thing of the misty and uncertain
future, but that fact should be no reason for the existing
spirit of inactivity in athletics.
Since making up the editorial columns it has been
announced that there will be no exercises on Arbor Day
except those in connection with laying the corner stone of
Grant Memorial Hall. The editorial remarks pre to be con
sidered, therefore, as withdrawn.
Why don't somebody begin agitating the subject of a place
for camp? We ought to choose some place that is near so
that all will go, for the amount of fun at camp is directly
proportional to the number of boys present. As far as fun
is concerned it will make no difference where we go, but the
aim should be to get everyone to go. As for those who will
not go because they fear a loss of three or four in their stand,
ng, wc have no need for them, and the sooner they recognize
his fact the better it will be lor their health.
Some complications have arisen concerning the use of the
jopcra house in commencement week. It appears that after

no place for him to speak in unless one of the societies will
forego the pleasure of holding its June exhibition in the
opera house. The committees of the several societies seem
to be manifesting a commendable spirit in the matter, and
the three exhibitions will perhaps be held in the University
chapel, which, by the way is the proper place for such affairs.
