The University Magazine.
There has recently been much
talk of re-establishing the Univer
sity Magazine, and all public spir
ited students should interest them
selves in this laudable object. The
nerd of this element in college lift
is manifest on a slight examination
of the present state , of affairs.
While the Tar Heel furnishes an
opportunity for every day newspa
per correspondence, it has not the
space to give i to extensive literary
efforts, and it is for this very pur
pose that the Magizine is greatly in
demand. It affords a stimulus to
those men who are inclined to
improve their writing abilities and
is a most potent aid to the English
In addition to this all-sufficient
reason for the re-establishment of
the Magazine is the dissatisfaction
caused among the alumni by its dis
solution. This is very marked and
they are continually asking us
why have you abolished the Maga
Let all society members take the
question into consideration and try
to organize aMagazine that will re
flect credit upon the University and
bring into view our best literary efforts.
Dr. Venable's New Book.
We have received the prospectus
of a new book by our Dr. Venable,
entitled 44 77ie Development of the
7eriodic Lazu. " A glance over the
table of contents will be sufficient
to show the excellence and thorough
ness of the book. We congratu -late
Dr. Venable upon' the success
of his small book, 4 4The History of
Chemistry," and feel conrident that
this, his larger work will briug
him even greater reward.
We heartily wish the other mem
bers of the faculty would follow the
example set by Dr. Venable. It is
admitted that our faculty is the
equal of any in the South, and if it
is possible for them to publish books
in their respective departments it
would not only bring them individ
ual fame and reward but it would,
at the same time, advertise our Uni
Let this have your consideration

University Dramatic ClubV
For the pasi woek the members of
last year's Dramatic CI uu' have been
occupied in organizing a club for the
present session. With the assistance
of President Alderman, the men have
been solccted, who were' thought most
suitable for the parts in the play, which
is to be Goldsmith's famous drama
"She Stoops to Conquer."
At present the membership of the
cl ii b is composed of the following men :
TV N. Webb, D. B. Smith, D. Eatman,

ler, A. W. Belden, and R. E. Follin.
Messrs. R. H. Graves a:ii Stuart Carr
have been elected Manager and Stage

it is hoped that the play will be ready
for presentation by the first of Decem
) Wheelman's Road League.
A' meeting of the bicycle men of
college was held in the chapel on Sat
urday afternoon at 4:30 for the pur
pose of organizing the Wheelman's
Road 'League. This movement was
started by Prof. J. A. Holmes, and the
object of the League is to promote as
far as possible the improvement of
roads jn and about Chapd Hill..
All Students of the University and
citizens of the town are eligible for
membership in the association. , The
first thing projected by the club for
the benefit of wheel-riders is the con
struction of a bicycle track through the
"limit" territory of main street. Af ter
war.ds they hope to be able to have
manv of the countrv roads improved
and to have all the "streets cleared of
A second meetine- was held on Tues

Officers for the following year were
elected as follows : Prof. Holmes,
President ; Prof. Harrington and Dr.

A Farewell from the Law Class.
The Law Class of '96 before bid
ding farewell to their preceptors.
Dr.' Manning and Judge Shepherd
presented them with a parasol-cane
set, as a token of their esteem and
affection. Both professors accepted
the presents in -very appropriate
and well chosen words of advice.
The University is indeed blessed'
in having two such worthy and
learned gentlemen at the head ot
the Law School. Ever striving to
inculcate into their students princi
ples of honor and integrity, as well
as the doctrines of law, they give to
North Carolina men in the truest
sense of the word, uplifting hu
manity and making the world better
for their having lived in it.
We would like to know when
these fallen trees will be removed
from the camous. Besides obstruc
ting the pathways in some instan
ces, they are very unsightly and
mar the appearance of the campus.
It is true that two or. three laborers
are at work on these trees but this
is not enough.' It will take two
men as many weeks to clear the
ramous. Whv not enffaffe all the
laborers in the village and have it
all removed in a day or two?
As the University grows every
thing connected with it makes prog
ress. One noteworthy advance is
the improved cpndition of the Chap
el Hill railroad. During the sum-7
tner. the Southern Railway Com
pany has finished laying steel rails
from University Station and
put on clean, freshly painted new
fixtured cars with first and second
class accommodations. The road
bed is much improved. The result
of these improvements is that the
schedule time has been reduced from
one hour and ten minutes to forty
five minutes. So that our little
road is no. longer the laughing
stock of all visitors, but is now
really smooth-running, reasonably
fast and passably comfortable: We
ljope, however, that the time will
come when we will have a through
line and better connections.
The first regular , meeting of the
Philological Club was held on Tues
day evening in the English room.
Dr. Hume read a paper on the
first printed translation of the 44De
Imitatione Cristi." '
Prof. Harrington discussed the
first Roman comedies.
; Prof. Toy made an extended notice
of Prof. Kuno ; Erancke's 'Social
Forces in German Literature."
Chapel Hill was visited on Tues
day evening and "night by a severe
wind and rain storm combined. It
beiran in the afternoon. At about
five o'clock, the rain increased and
the wind began to blow from the
southwest. The wind grew in force
until at half past five it was blowing
some of the largest trees on the cam
pus to the ground while the air was
literally full of flying leaves and
branches. The roaring of the wind
and rain was something awful; but
it was a magnificent sight to see
the writhing, screaming monarchs.
bend before the storm. After dark
the direction of the wind changed
and was soon blowing down trees
in the opposite direction. By ten
o'clock the uight was as calm and
clear as if nothing had happened.
Twenty-five or thirty trees, oaks,
elms, and hickories, were blown
down on the campus. We have
heard of no serious damage. Mr.
Weaver, a neighboring farmer, had
a tree blown across his house, and
there were outhouses, &c.,. blown
down at several places.
We fear that when reports come
in we shall hear of more serious
misfortune, especially on the coast.
