The barbs will have to surrender unconditionally tluc ar

groundless. The following is the expense account of one of
the well known Phis. It is too good to keep any longer now
that the frats have boycotted The Hkspkkian because we
didn't notice them enough. This account is a strong argument
that nt least the Phi fraternity is a cheap one. Here is the
Car fare $i 20

The railroad fare is something which could not have been
cheaper. We all have to bow down to the soulless corpora
tions and pay our money to them. The draymen in Lincoln
have a combine and twenty five cents is the minimum fee for
hauling. Ten cents worth of prety ribbon to wear with a
sparkling little Irat pin is surely very cheap. Of course we
all have to go to the shoemaker. The thiry-fivc cents for
another dray would seom to indicate that it is cheaper to
move than to pay rent. Billiards, 5 cents 1 What extrava
gance! We wonder if his papa knows that he is here spending
such great amounts for billiards. Oil, five cents! Hair oil,
we suppose, for the Phi in question is a very dandified little
fellow. Meal tickets $4.50. This is cheap, to be sure, when
we remember that at Dclmonico's in New York single meals
sometimes cost as much as twenty dollars. Taken as a whole
and judging from this expense account we must admit that it
is cheap living here in a fraternity.
To the Editor of The Uebi'brian.
The question is frequently asked, "Is there a file of the
Journal in the library?" and I would like to say a word
through your paper about the abuse of the 'Journal in the
reading room. The paper is brought to the library at 8:30
a. rn. and placed where any student may have access to it for
legitimate pip poses, and if it were properly used would be in
good condition to file; but the few unscrupulous persons, who
do not hesitate to use the margins for scribbling, to cl p
articles from its pages or to steal copies from the room, or to
tramp upon a page of it which may accidentally fall to the
floor, succeed in ruining the file week after week. Could the
names of those persons be known proper measures would be
taken to prevent such lawlessness; but such things are always
done in a sneaking way, and until the better class of students
shall create a public sentiment so strong against the abuse of
public property, that the one who docs those things shall be
despised as he deserves, and his work become known we can
not hope to have a full file of the Journal in the library.
