Elisha Mitchell Society,
The last meeting of " the ETisha
Mitchell Scientific Society for this
year 'was held in the Chemical lecture
room last Tuesday evening.
Thewiirst paper was.by Prof; Cobb
on the subject "A Case of Stream Ad
justment near Chapel ' Hill". It dealt
with the adjustment of Battle's Branch
that has taken place since Triassic
time. The stream by the gradual ero
sion of the triassicM-ock over. which it
flows has had.a portion of its course,
completely changed in direction, and
now flows at right angles to the orig
The next paper was by Dr. H. V.
Wilson on "The Feasibility of Rear
ing Sponges from the Egg". He gave
some practical suggestions on the
breeding of sponges from experiments
made on the Bahama Islands. His
suggestions of the possibility of im
proving the species by the process ot
grafting were very interesting.
The third paper, by Mr. E. J. Wood
was on "The Process of Division of
Animal Cells". Results of laboratory
experiments were given, and explain
ed by the aid of diagrams represent
ing a cell in different stages of the
This paper was commented on by
Dr. Wilson as representing work
which required great skill on the part
of Mr. Wood-
X Ray Photographs.
Prof. Gore has several photo
graphs he has taken by means of
the X-rays. One shows the knee
joint and the bones of the leg, an
other the bones of the hand, and a
third, those of the foot. The pic
tures are the first he has taken, but
are exceedingly good. He has or
dered a larger tube, and plates
prepared for use with the X-rays,
and expects to photograph all parts
of the body.
Rev. J. M. Horner, of Oxford,
came over with his boys to the ath
letic contests Saturday.
First Aunnal Field-Day
Of the Carolina Prep. Schools.
The first annual inter-prepartory
school track athletic contest, which
took place Saturday morning- proved
a howling snccess. With the ex
ception of the drop-kicking which
was somewhat of a farce, the rec
ords made were much better than
was expected. All the contestants
showed lack of training, but, con
sidering this handicap, did remark
ably wel 1 .

A Creditable Issue of the Universi
The April Magazine has appeared
and its management nmv be congratu
lated. In verse and fiction this issue
is richer than'the last, while there is
a good proportion of other interesting
The frontispiece, a handsome en
graving of the late David Gaston
Worth is followed by a sketch of his
life. In its subject necessarily inter
esting, the scholarly presentation in ,
strong well chosen language of this
biography attest the literary ability
of its writer.
Among the several creditable short
stories, "The Flamingo Feather" is
noticeable. The opening paragraphs
create a mood and an atsmospher.e and
the story is well sustained.
Perhaps the most striking contribu
tion to this issue isMr. Van Noppen's
sonnet to Shakespere. The literary
fame which this son of the University
is wearing in the outside world leads
us to receive his lines expectantly and
we are not dissapointed. The touch
of a master hand is on them. Every
line is skillfully executed and the con
clusion is embodied in a fine meta
"Thus Shakespere drawing nature's
stops, first sounds
A tragic base, then liner chords
And all the diapason strikes from
Heaven to Hell."
The sonnet "On Keats" enfolds a
happy thought in graceful words, but
with some lack of management. The
opening lines go smoothly but the end
ing is involved. There is a little 'me'
that seems to drop into its place be
cause there was no room anywhere
else rather than because it belongs
From the closing pages of the
Magazine a breath of editorial op
timism is disseminated. The good
old days when all interest centered
in the Societies are no longer to be
sighed for. The great present of
Shakespere, Scientific, Dramatic,
Historical and Philosophic 'Clubs,
College weeklies a n d Scientific
Journals, inter-collegiate debates
and ball games, and Choral Socie
ties, is with us.
