THE HESPERIAN . Dan Wheeler, "83, was presented with a $100 diamond pin by the A. F. A. M. J. P. Hartman, Jr., helped to see that the law makers got well started in their work. Mr. C. Doran of Sidney, a new student, paid The Hes perian office a visit last week. G. A. Bcecher sends the welcome news that he will prob ably be in school again next fall. Miss Edith Russell, a student of two years ago, was seen in the city at the first of the term. A notice recently seen on the door of room 6: "The Chancellor and Steward is not in." Miss Glen Talbot, '88, made a short visit to her Univer sity friends the first part o'f the term. W. N. Fletcher squeezed $77.23 from the hard working fanners of Box Butte county during vacation. The Palladians have chosen O. W. Fifer and F. C. Taylor to represent them in the local oratorical contest. The Historical and Agricultural Societies have met with glory and now popcorn and apples await the students. The changes in the first floor rooms arc very satisfactory. The water cooler, however, is the greatest blessing of all. Miss Pennock, '88, sang at a musicalc at Omaha, January 9, and the Omaha papers spoke very highly of her perform, ancc. C. Clement Chase, editor of the Omaha Excelsior attend chapel at his alma mater one of the first mornings of the term. Charles Englchard of Rising City has returned to school after an absence of one term. His class is glad to welcome him back. A former student of the U. of N. is called Senator Polk of Cass county. He is an older brother of the two well known brothers. "Give us this day our daily lit." is what some sacreligious "chump" put on the tail end of the lab. The sacrilege refers to the scriptures not to the tail end. P. J. Colman, a former member of the class of '89, now of Dakota university, was a visitor the first day or two of this term. The U. of N. was honored by a visit from Shakespeare; not the bard of Avon, but the bard of the University of Penn sylvania. He was the guest of Professor Sherman. The post holes have been occupied by telegraph poles. Telegraph poles partake of the nature of sticks which reminds us that the holes have before been occupied by sticks. A wire gauze or whatever it is has been placed across the cast end of the second floor halls so as to make a good cage wherein to imprison disorderly preps. It will be known as Rennet's prep cage. Amclie Rives latest fad is "glove fitting shoes" with a sep. arate apartment for each toe. She goes on the theory that it is no worse to display a pretty foot than a pretty hand. We hope she will stop here. Professor Caldwell could a talc unfold if he would. In the meeting of the Historical Association he did unfold and exhumed some rich old jokes, wherein the faculty disclosed its pristine and forgotten vigor. Hon. D. D. Forsyth of The Hesperian board of man agers, spent his vacation with Pizey and Eagleson. The fact that he was two days late in returning to school goes to show that he had a splendid time, W. B. Graham was summoned home shortly after his arrival this term by the news of the death of a sister in-law. He returned home to attend the funeral. The sympathy of The HEsrsxiAN is extended to him in his bereavement. Some one skilled in the printers art succeeded in intro ducing into the last issue a few locals for which neither the editors nor the typos wish to assume the responsibility. Personal venom should find other ways of showing itself. The thanks of The Hesperian asssociation are due to the janitors for the efficient aid they rendered in making the new arrangement of the office furniture. The Hesperian headquarters are now of palatial elegance. Messrs. Sayer and Miller will be at home to their lady friends every Friday evening immediately after society. On Tuesday and Wednesday, January S and 9, the State Historical Society met in the University chapel. The im portance of this society is becoming more and more recog nized and that largely through the earnest work of the de partment of history in the University. That part of the session which is of special interest to the students was a paper read on Tuesday evening by Professor II. W. Cald well on "The History of Higher Education in Nebraska." The paper showed much work in investigating the early his tory of the mushroom universities of pioneer days. A large part of the paper was, of course, devoted to the early history of the University of Nebraska as the highest school of the state. Many valuable statistics as to average grades of vari ous classes, compaiativc grades of lady and gentleman students, and the increase in the number of students weie also given. Wednesday evening the newly elected lecturer on Political Science, Dr. A. G. Warner, read an able paper on "The Study of Political Science in American State Uni versities." Both meetings were tolerably well attended by the students. DIRECT POINTERS. Call on Edddd. Ccrf &C000. Bargains at Chicago shoe store. Go to Ewing's for fall overcoats. Hats and caps at Ed.
