THE HESPERIAN. 0 Ci X a Any one wishing a subscription to LippintotPs Afagatin can get one nt greatly reduced rates by applying to O. G. Miller, business manager. Hayden, the photographer, Is now prepared to make those little stamp photos, so neat to use on visiting cards, letterheads etc. Call around and investigate. Paul Burleigh, '93 has been compelled to leave school on account of Ill-health. His physician does not think It advis able for him to return before next year. "That's the long and short of it" remarked a dignified senior pointing to Professor Caldwell and Professor Fosslcr who were coming up the walk together. Professor D. F. Eastcrday has been quite sick for two weeks, and the band has been worrying along without an in structor. We arc glad to notice that he was back at his post again this week. The regular winter meeting of the board of regents will be held at the University, beginnning December 17. That is just one week before the close of the fall term. It is the first time that such a thing has occurred, for several years at least. Our business manager, O. G. Miller, will start on a trip, cast and south in a lew days to spend the holidays at his old home in North Carolina. He will take a jaunt down to Charleston and to Washington, returning about the middle of January. Dr. Gcigcr performed a little detective operation on a tramp who took a fancy to a lap-robe in fiont of the University last week. The tramp outran the doctor as the latter was yet weak fiom his recent illness, else the police court would have had another victim. The precocious patriotism of a couple of our military men who wished to fire a salute on the receipt of the news of the death of Jeff Davis, was emphatically squelched by Lieutenant Griffith, and their attempt afterward to secure the piece and "fire it anyhow" was unsuccessful. Our " Miscellany" editor took a flying trip home on the evening of Thanksgiving day, and returned the following morn ing. He reports that he attended an oyster supper in the evening, and put in the rest of the night "sitting up" and that the "after part" was by far the better part of the night. Baron dc Stoughton, the biological irrigation man, has turned his genius in a new direction. After devouring a peck of apples and several sacks of pop-corn at the Union social he went home and dreamed he was being sued for breach of prom ise by two different parties. The Delian society gave a special program the night of De cember 6. There were present besides many University stud ents and city people, three literary societies from Wesleyan university and one from the Christian university. The lower part of the chapel was filled and some seats in the gallery oc cupied. A very good program was rendered though it was perhaps a little too lengthy. Steward Dales is rejoicing over the arrival of a fine electric clock from Hippe of Neufchatel, Switzerland. This ingenius timepiece has no spring and docs not have to be wound up with a key. It is operated solely by the gravitation of the earth iand the current of a three cell battery. The workmanship is of the finest. This clock will hereafter have charge of ringing the bells in the various buildings. On its arrival it could ring only at the full hours, and it took delicate manipulation on the part of Thompson the jewelcr,to adjust it to ring on the cxpir ation the full hours in the morning, and nt the half-hours in the afternoon. The following conversation was recently overheard among a crowd of juniors recently: First Junior; "Are you as Cross as ever?" Second Dittos "You must be very Green to think such a thing as that." Third Ditto: "'At would seem to be the case." Fourth Ditto: "To hear you talk people would say that you were Lou-ny," Fifth Ditto: "You fellows ought to have Moore sense than to " Just then a wild and vicious Soph hurried past murmuring as he went: "Sic semper McGin nis." On Thursday, December 5, was held a meeting for the re organization of the local oratorical association. About sixty students were present and considerable interest was manifested. E. R. Holmes was elected president for the ensuing year; 11. A. Reese, vice-president, and Geo. L, Sheldon, secretary and treasurer. The time for the local contest was fixed for the first Saturday in February which will be Fcburary I, 1890. A com mittee on local contest was appointed and a committee to make arrangements for the inter-state contest was provided for. Another of those nice blotters of which we have already made mention shows a winged cherub carrying a Dictionary Holder under one arm saying: "I am making a flying trip in the interest of education. The basis of education is the dic tionary, and the base of the dictionary should be a Noycs Hol der. The valued unabridged is of little value unless it is get atablc (look this word up). A book held edge up gets full of dust, soiled and spoiled unless hugged together with strong springs. Only the Holders mantactured by La Verne V. Noycs, the originator and inventor of Book Holders, have such springs." Send to him, at Chicago, a two-cent stamp to pay postage and receive in return this series of blotters. DIRECT POINTERS.
