WE regret that we cannot give
this week as full an account of the
Virginia game as we. would like
without delaying the paper. '
Next week, however, we will
have a review of the whole football
season with some interesting facts
in regard to our last game.
The game with Virginia was lost.
Carolina has never had the reputa
tion of seeking an excuse for defeat.
But we know, and the playing
proved, that the Carolina team was
superior to Virginia in every point.
And we wish it to go forth to the
world that Carolina is proud of her
team, that she feels that she got
decidedly the worst of the umpir
ing, and that on neutral ground she
can give Virginia a sound drubbing.
The disqualification of Merritt was
unjust, unfair and unsportsmanlike,
showing that our rival his not the
grit and manhood to take a defeat
fairly and squarely. Also, a year
ago. Virginia had everything her
way and the field was perfectly
clear of spectators. But n 'Thurs
day, we noticed that after? Virginia
had scored Virginia men swarmed
over the field, thereby keeping our
star back, Stephens, from making a
touchdown. Yes, Virginia, you have
the game, but we are glad to say
that North Carolina still has her
old reputation of gentlemen and
men who love fair play.
Mr. Henry Jerome Stockard,
who was instructor in English in
this University, a few years ago,
has written enough poetry to make
up a small volume. The book is to
be published if enough subscribers
can be found to pay the cost of pub
In spite of the fact that a good
deal of Mr. Stockard 's potetry has
been thought worthy of publication
in some of the leading magazines
the Wilmington Messenger has to
complain that only one hundred and
fifty subscribers to the published
volume have been found and a large
proportion of . them are not North
Whatever may be our opinion of
Mr. Stockard's merits as a poet,
this does not say much for our wil
lingness to encourage literary work
on the part of our 'own men. Let
it be granted that the work is not
so srood as we should like to
have it, when we measure it by the
absolute standard. Can we expect :
it to improve if we offer no encour-1
agement to the authors?
As a matter of fact, Mr. Stock-,
ard is recognized as a poet of no
mean ability, and in North Caro
lina, to say nothing of any other
place, his volume of poems ought to'
have a good sale. It is barely pos-1
sible that the matter has not been
well advertised. It was purely an
accident that the writer of this arti-'
cle learned that the poems were to
be published; and through whom he '
could subscribe for a copy. '
- John D. Rockafeller has made .an
other magnificent donation to the Uni
versity of Chicago. This time it is
one million dollars," and is the largest
single sum ever donated to any insti

provided the University authorities
will raise an equal amount, ' which
chy think they can easily do. Mr.

the over-development of the critical

proving detrimental to art" -
The last issue of Harper's Week
ly has the following about the new
mayor-elect of Brooklyn:
"Mr. Wurster, the successful
candidate, was born in North Car
olina. of German parents, in 1850.
When he was seven years old his
parents moved to Brooklyn. He
was educated in the public schools
and went into business as a princi
pal when he was twenty years dd;
He is a manufacturer of axles and
is prosperous in his affairs.
He -is a director in several finan
cial institutions and is president of
the Hanover Club. Fire commis
sioner under mayor Scheren is the
only public office he ever held."-
Last Sunday evening the Rev;
John M. Rose preached the Novem
ber Sermon in the series of Month
ly Sermons before the Young MenTs
Christian Association. Mr. Rose
was a student in the University in
1867 68. He preached from James
4:14, "For what is your life?" , "
The purest life is not all there
is a future for which the present is
but a period of preparation. Thati
view which does look upon thepresj
ent life as probationary is ignoble
and degrading. I
The man's life has a certain, re
lation to Christ's life, and the man
should strive to attain that relation.;1
No one lives to himself. The fact
that he has influence upon his feir
lows should weigh upon him as 4n
awful responsibility, and he ' should
spare no pains to make that influence '
what it should be. ') " 'I,,'

Shall Women be allowed to Study
i at the University?
15 Times and opinions change. Ten
years ago, one of the professors at
that time connected with the Uni
versity suggested that it might be
a; good thing to allow women at th
University. The remark created
some disturbance in the State, one
paper going to the extent of saying
that the professor should not be al
lowed to remain here. Now, these
same papers would give him a very

to certain departments and under
certain restrictions. To admit them
to all of the departments, and with
out restrictions, would be a very
great innovation, and North Caro
Una does not take kindly to iunova'
tions. But there could be no reas
onable objection to admitting them
to the graduate department, when
they are prepared to do the work.
; So far as I know, there is not an
institution in the state that offers to
women the opportunity to do work
of that character, such as they

number of women in the State pre
pared to do such work, and desirous
of doing it is probably not very
large; but if there were only one,
she should be given the opportunity
to do it.
i I can see no objection to going-
farther and admitting women who

A Wonderful Invention
Zoology teaches that the hairs of the head
are hollow, and contain an oil that gives
them life. Tn clipping the hair with scis
sors, this hollow is left open, and the hair
loses its ; he-giving properties.
I have a Machine named the Singeing Ma
chine, which removes the hair and at the
same time closes up the hollow, causing the
hair to retain its life-giving properties, and
therefore -stopping the hair from falling- out
or dyin;; and giving it a soft growth.
Call and examine this machine and have
your hair singed.
Special attention given to dressing La
dies' hair. Cutting done with exquisite and
srtistis skill by the old University Barber
of twenty years' experience.
The singing machine is highly recom
mended by scientists throughout the country.
