About two months ago an announcement was made that
Omaha was to have a University club. Five young men in this city
well acquainted with the past disastrous history of like efforts, yet
believing that those failures were due solely to mismanagement
have taken hold of this bugbear and "hoodoo" and are staking their
reputation upon its financial success, at least. The now University
club is wholly the work of these fivo men, who have installed
themselves as directors for the coming year, and who intend to run
the club according to notions laid down in the articles of incorpor
ation and the by-laws. These men are Lysle I. Abbot, president;
Frank Crawford, vice president; Charles L. Thomas, secretary;
Hugh A. Myprs, treasurer, Randall Brown, director. The charter
members of the club are S. C. Cowin, Victor B. Caldwell, Richard
S. Hall, W. D.McHugh, J. R. Clarkson,R.W. Patrick, I.F. Congdon,
Frank Crawford, Charles L. Thomas, Lysle I. Abbof, Hugh A.
Myers, A. W. Jefferis, J. W. Broatch, Lee W. Spratlin, H. N. Mc
Grew J. J. Mullen, S. G. V. Griswold, John L. Pierce, John L.
Webster, William T. Nelson, Ernest Itner. In the inception of the
club it was thought that it would be difficult to get more than one
hundred members, but so many questions have been asked and so
much interest has been displayed in the matter, in spite of the effort
to keep everything quiet and to solicit no subscriptions, it is
probably true that at least 200 applications will be received and
approved. The main ultimate object of the club is a social one, and
though athletics will probably always be a feature they are made a
means to that end. It is the intention of the directors that its
members shall consist of university men of the city and certain
others who are acceptable to them. These are either associate or
honorary members and when once they have their share of Btock
they cannot be deprived of membership for ordinary reasons,
providing they keep up their dues. It is likely that after this year
nobody but university men will be accepted and associate members
will all be made honorary members. The intention is to have a club
of young men of congenial tastes who can meet together and have
better opportunities for getting acquainted than they have now in
Omaha, where the young men are divided into so many coteries and
cliques socially; that there might be in this city a place where
college men might nuet and talk over Ihe joys and sorrows of college
life, and further where a member might entertain a visiting friend and
facilitate his acquaintance with representative college men of the
city Omaha Excelsior.

MAKING THE BEST OF IT.
"Mother, may I go out to wheel?"
"Yes, my darling daughter;
I suppose, of course, you won't wear skirts,
Although I think you oughter."
Written for The Courier.
God kissed the waters and the day was born,
A maiden white and fair,
He called tho rosy smiling infant Morn,
And touched her yellow hair.
When she grew weary and her blue eyes drooped.
He spread her with a veil,
And from it's folds a shining army trooped,
Her wakening to hail.
His mighty voice upon the silence fell,
The great initial sound,
Lulling the daughter that He loved so well.
And melody was found!
