worthy from a scientific standpoint, shows a very smooth and
entertaining literary style.
E. R. Tinglcy has worked up the geology of Lancaster
county. He has given a history of all formations and traced
the development of the natural features now seen. The
stratcography, topography and paleontology are fully
described. Seventeen or eighteen pages of drawings, con
taining nearly one hundred figures add to the value ol the
thesis. Nearly all fossil shells and plants of the county are
G. W. Gerwig has traced the "Development of Simplic
ity in English Writers." The authors from Chaucer down
to modern English and American authors have been made
the subject of the investigation. The classification has been
made upon two bases the number of predications to
a period and the proportion of simple sentences. The con
clusions reached arc put in tabulated form and show that
among English authors, Macaulay has attained greatest suc
cess in the matter of simplicity, and among American aulh
ors Emerson is to be ranked first in this respect. General
Grants "Memoirs"-rank high accoiding to both standards.
The results of Mr. Gcrwig's investigations tally closely with
the results reached by Professor Sherman in his investiga
tions of sentence length.

We are very glad to say that the double number of Tim
Hesperian will be -published. The greater number of the
students and the faculty have shown their appreciation of
the enterprise and enough copies have been ordered so that
the business manager will make the venture. If possible the
issue will gotten out so that the papers may be delivered as.
the audience leaves the opera house on commence1 lay.
If this ir not possible they may be gotten in The Hli i.rian
office in the afternoon of June 12, or at the reception in the
evening. In undertaking this it has been assumed that every
copy ordered will betaken. The honor of the studcuts has
thus been trusted. But printers can not be paid in promises
and there will be almost no chance to collect money after the
paper is out. It will be quite necessary then for as many as
possible to pay for their copies before receiving them, thus
preventing much trouble and risk. All copies which have
been ordered and are not delivered before 9 p. m. of Wednes
day, June 12, will be mailed to the address given in catalogue
and the amount due for them, 10 cents each, should be
remitted to E. R. Holmes, Kearney, Neb. All those wishing
copies should give their order beforehand as only a few more
than arc ordered will be printed. Every eflbrt will be made
to furnish a well written account of all happenings of the
week, as full as space will permit. The graduating orations
will be given in full. Payment for extra copies should Le
made'to business manager, E. R. Holmes, oi to H. P. Kerr.
