C. W. Stage of the Chicago Ath
letic Club won the 220-yards dash
at the Pastime Athletic Club games
in St. Louis In 21 3-5 seconds,
equaling the world's record. He
also ran one hezt of the hundred In
9 4'$ seconds.
No organization in tne University
has of lath years exerted so potent
an influence on scientific literary
study and' investigation 's has the
Shakespere Club. An encourage-,
merit heretofore unappreciated is
given the serious examiner into Eng
lish. and other master pieces in the
hope that worthy ' results may be
realized ' not only in point of culture
for those actively interested, but in
matters of research and fine produc -tion.
It is most necessary that the
life of the club be preserved and in
vigorated by renewed energy on the
part $f faculty and students. ; To the
latter there is especial opportunity,
and we trust that the Juniors and
Seniors will recognize and give to
the organization their hearty sup
port by means of individual labcr as
well as financially. The first meet
ing will be held on Tuesday night
next, to which all are cordially in
vited. THE THURSDAY NIGHT ENTER
TAINMENT. Mrs. Mattie Betts Thomas, assist
ed by Mrs. Alexander Green and
Miss Frances Leigh Starr, was greet
ed by a cnltivated and enthusiastic'
audience at Gerrard Hall.
The vocal solos of Mrs. Thomas
proved her to be an artist of no mean
attainments. Her voice is rich and
mellow, sympathetic and express
ive. Each number was heartily en
cored. Miss Starr was inimitable,
from the beginning, she completely
won the audience and was forced to
respond to a double encore in nearly
every number. The old lady "The
apron" was "too funny enough."
As a pianist, Mrs. G.een is very
hard to equal. Her touch and ex
pression show great talent and cars
ful training. The University will
gladly welcome this talented trio
back at any time.
The Law class held its annual
meeting Saturday night. Judge
R. H. Hays presided over the

George Witherbee, Cornell, 93,
was drowned this summer by the
capsizing of his yacht on Lake
Champ'lain. He sacrificed his life

he has played tackle for two years.
As the undergraduates and Alum
ni of both institutions desire it,
there is probability of a great game
between Harvard and Princeton ere
Christmas. The respective teams
have not met since the unpleasant
occurrence of '89, and should a
contest come off it will be watched
with much real interest.
