Perhaps we did not sufficiently impress our mean ing, last issue, in regard to our advertisers. We meant that you should notice who advertise in this issue and give them your trade.

The gallery-gods must soon be a regu lar part of the assembly. TERMS OK SUUSCRIPTION: One copy, per college year, ....

Hush, Scc'y UNIVERSITY UNION LITERARY SOCIETY. Frank F. Almy, Pies. Miss Louise Pound, Sec'y The various literary societies have been well at tended this fall and their prospects are bright.

He says, "I do not wonder, from what I hear of Ne braska University, that you are pleased with the out look. It seems to be clearly in the lead west of the Mississippi which is to say that it is in advance of many similar institutions on this side of the river." Coming as this does entirely unsought and unexpect ed, it is very gratifying. May. we all aid in making the University to take the place it is surely destined to attain. The completion of Nebraska Hall, making a sep arate home for the sciences and their devotees, sep arates the students of the various departments more than ever. This tendency has its bad effects.
