'Varsity ? ; men have always
been noted throughout the State
for the courtesy extended by them
to visitors, and it is highly grati
fying to know that our reputation
for the same at present is gaining
ground. The following, clipped
from the Brozvn and While, and
written by a member of the 'Le
high team, gives evidence of the
impression received at- U. N. C,
and gracefully expresses just what
we would say concerning the boys
from Bethlehem: - -
"The hospitable treatment received
everywhere, especially at the University
of. North Carolina, where the greatest
possible courtesy was shown the team,
shows that the best of feeling towards
Lehigh exists in the Southern colleges.
A finer lot of men than the University of
North Carolina affords would be hard to
find, and amicable rivalry with them on
the athletic field both in baseball . and
Our games with Vermont come
off this week. Very few of the
Hillians can be present to witness
them, but if good wishes and faith
in the home team . boot" for any
thing, it is probable that U. N. C.
will come out with flying colors.
The record made by the boys in
the last three games is truly en
couraging, i ' , Practice, 'X earnest,
attentive practice, is all that is
needed. . Fellows, go in and win;
we are backing you.
In this day of athletics, danc
ing and fuss some people have
claimed .that the University can
do nothing along literary Hues..
We are sorry that the aforesaid
people are so pitiably ignorant in
regard to our progress here, , r The
Shakspeare Clttb has never been
more successful, nor afforded more
enjoyable entertainment to the
students than it has this year.
The Historical and Mitchell So
cieties are full of life. . Owx Mag
azine speaks for itself,, and we
have two weeklies. Inasmuch as
some; may, not be convinced of
our capabilities,, we? clip the fol
lowing from the Charlotte Obser
ver written by our friend and
fellow student, Mr.H. J.Stockard:
The best writdr'on verse in the State is
perhaps Prof. Henry Jer6me Stockard, of
the University. We have the pleasure of
printing this morning .another poem of
undoubted, merit from his pen. -(

:The bland south' breezes .o'er, 'the fields

I hear the jay's "e-lil-ick" in the bramble,
The red-bird's note that mocks the purl
of streams; -
The little lambs out in the pasture gambol
In the sun's amber beams.
The black birds on a giant oak assemble,
And blow their elfin horns and magic
While from their low, sweet, silvery
Their flute-like fiats and sharps.
Far down the meads amid the culms and
' osiers '''';.' :-'.''
The frogs all .day long chant their soul

Comes up their sadder note.
The water-beetles dance their waltzes
" Upon the 'sheltered pond's unruffled
Across the sky the loitering wind and
lazy 1 4 ;
Drives his cloud flocks to rest,
The migratory birds in depths of azure
Fade out to north in wavering, cham
like flight; ' ? .
Or thunders from the storm-cloud's dark
Roll as if Titans fight.
And then, frail, yet eternal, curved on
The bow of promise touches lulls and
As God outspreads His hands to earth
From out His cloudy sleeves!
Once more the' soul thrills with the firm
That life's dark wioter leadeth on to
Transcending those that.as a benediction,
Crown earth's glad vernal days.

BY LEO WHEAT AND TUXEDO OUITAE
, AND MANDOLIN CLUB.
; On Tuesday night the student
body was treated to the finest con
cert by far that has taken place
at the Hill for many days. Leo
was again homeathlsAlmaMater,
and the effect produced by recur
ring memories and associations
was plainly noted in his feeling
renditions. The audience seemed
to sympathize with him from the
first, in fact they could not help
it. The spirit of a man devoted
to and lost in his art never fails
to permeate an audience, elevating
and ennobling for the time being,
if no longer, their routine govern
ed lives. The first selection, one
of Faust's Operas, was elegant,
the best of Wheat's performances
during the night. Scarcely less
applauded was the encore, a
mother's lullaby, composed by
the player himself. As regards
the Tuxedo quartette, they are, as
Leo styled them, simply "out of
sight." Their music, highly
classical and very delicate, com
pletely captivated ' the hearers.
More perfect minors have seldom
been rendered here in any musi
cal e. "Washington Post March"
and "The British Patrol," possi
bly, were the best effusions, yet it
is hard; to; place any above the
final medley of Southern Airs,
which, closing with " Dixie,"
brought the company assembled
almost with enthusiasm to their
feet. Below is appended the pro
gramme, which ere long we hope
to hear agaiu. ,. - , ,
