The university library has been pre
sented by Judge J. R. Webster with a
valuable collection of books on ancient
religions. It comprises forty-six books
of research into religion by ancient and
modern scientists. The collection is
worth one hundred anil fifty dollars.
With the true spirit of a scholar Judge
Webster wished the collection he has
taken so much pleasure in selecting not
to be scattered, but to be read and stud
ied by others. The new university
library is tire proof. The books are
safer there than anywhere else in the
state. Besides the donor wished to
have the pleasure of giving the books
The university fraternities are now
selecting their members, Tj be an
acceptable member of a fraternity one
must be a good dresser and must not
be an habitual "Hunker." Occasionally
several Greek letters want the same
man. When this occurs all kinds of
attentions are lavished on that man. He
is invited to dinner, to the theatre, he
can have anything that twenty or thirty
devoted and rival boys can get for him.
He thinKs the students a most po'ito
unselfish, disinterested set of young men
until he is initiated into one of the fra
ternities, then the members of the other
fraternities sunddenly "give him ice"
and he realizes that the world is hollow.
C. V. Smith made an entirely scien
tific investigation of the Bowery and
makes a report to Thk Coukikic:
"Saturday night I went to the Uow
ery." J always thought that the Bowery
was some kind of a theatre and I was
surprised to learn that it was the name
of a street. It reminds me very much
of White Chapel, Loudon. It is one
grand blaze of light illuminating the
shop windows, and the concourse of the
middle classes and roughs who prom
enade up and down the sidewalks. The
place of greater interest here is Steve
Brodie's saloon. Who has not heard of
Steve Brodie- What! never heard
Brodie? Well, I declare. Some time
ago Steve Brodie stood on the dizzy
heights of Brooklyn bridge, leaped into
the air, and like a shot fell down, down,
down to the waters of East river. He
lived. This leap took Steve Brodie
from obscurity ami secured him an en
viable Msition among the men of the
hour. When we entered the s:loon
I there were four of us the three bar
tenders all spoke together immediately
on our entrance: "Now, gentlemen,
what'l you have? Quick now, what'l it
be?" 'lhey spoke in such decided and
rather. I think, commanding tones, that
we realized without much difficulty that
it would be healthy for us to order
something, and order it juick. too. We
ordered four. The place is small; about
.'U)xl5 feet. Not at all a gaudy place
with handsome furnishings and the
like, but the bar and all are wry com
mon place. The four walls and ceiling
furnish the attraction, being covered
entirely with photographs of sports and
pugilists from Adam down. It is, in
deed, a curious collection, hardly tit for
a Sunday school, but instructive never
theless. There is besides a big blotch
of blood on a white piece of paper in a
small wooden frame with the inscrip
tion, "Blood wiped from the floor after
the Sullivan Corbet t tight at New Or
jeans.' tie also has a piece of tiie shirt
worn by a man who was electrocuted in
New York. Also Hags given him by
Corbatt and trophies from Sullivan and
others. As a sport Steve Brodie is way
up. and he probably is a power in pol
itics. His saloon is headquarters for
prize fighters and their coterie of fol
lowers. But just imagine placing on
