On Sunday morning he delivered
a very impressive sermon at the
Methodist Church in the village on
God's mercy and leniency in deal
ing with us. At night in the Univ
ersity Chapel, he delivered the reg
ular University sermon on the text
found in the latter part of the 8th
verse of the 4th Chapter of Phil
ippians. He spoke of the' subjective man
and the relations between man and
God, and between man and the ma
, He advised the young men that
now is the time for character build
ing, and that the truths laiddowu
in God's word are the directions by
which we can build up a noble life.
His whole sermon was impressive
and profound and full of thought
for young men.
During the present week Rev.
Mr. Watson is holding the regular
chapel exercises in the morning,
besides assisting the Y. M. C. A.
Dr. Thos. Hume delivered a very
interesting lecture on "Shake
pean Ideals of Conduct" before the
Woman's College at Raleigh on the
third of this month. The papers
spoke in highest praise of Dr.
Hume's scholarly effort.
We are delighted to state that
nur editor-in-chief's eyes are irn-
'dien we adopt imperialism, we proving, though they are not yet
e the whole history ot our sufficiently unproved tor htm to re-
ment. He said "I want you sume his editorial duties.
Our prospects continue to brighten
as the " season , opens. The men
who arc trying for the team have
been on the field every time that
the weather permitted and out of
them has developed some very ex
cellent material. It is with these,
together With what old men we
have, -that there is to be formed the
best base-ball team that the Uni
versity has had for many years.
With the present schedule before
us we have a good chance to make
for ourselves an enviable record.
Every man has his faults and if
the editor points out a few of these
to the men, it is done for their own
good and not simply for the pur
pose of criticising.
The applicants for first are Ben
nett, Richardson and Holt.
Bennett has come out but lately,
but is doing good work. If he
hopes to make his position, he must
do some hard and regular work
It will do him good and make him
pay more attention to the game.
Richardson is entirely too fast and
tod anxious to get the ball. He
should play steadier and with a less
Holt, on the other hand, is some
what slow and needs more snap,
both in throwing and catching.
The-baiting of the two is about
equal, but the same fault may be
here in both.
For second, Brem R., Capehart
and Graves L, are about evenly
matched and it will take the test of
a line-up to find out thejbest man.
For the field, Whitley is doing
the best work. He is a sure and
steady man and handles the ball
well. But at the bat if he would
not try to "slug . so often he
would do better hitting. He is too
anxious to hit the ball, often step
ping across the plate to get it. Ii
he will improve here his chances
The other applicants are Hinder

doing good vvor'v.
As to tiie old men Graves E.
has been 'hindei'ed from coming out
on account of his aim, but he must
come out as so n as possible-, as lit
is needed and and .needed badly.
All the infielders should p!av to
Lambeth has improved since last
season both in batting and fielding.
Allison is doing the same good
Woodard has been given charge
of the batting of the old men and
has been doing his part well. This
was done so tha . Capt. Lawson
could pay more attention to the
new material which he has brought
out wonderfully. If vve tret out
the hoped for good team it will be
due greatly to his steady, hard
As to pitchers, Battle has been
working steadily; developing into a
very good pitcher. His pitching is
fat above the average and he will
this season help Lawson out in
many ways. His batting is fairly
good, could be improved on. Will
cox is an entirely new man, but
there are chances that he will make
a good "twirler." He has fine
speed, a few good curves and hits
well. These are the men from
whom the team of 1900 will be
made, but the student body should
do their part to help them on.
Theirs is no small part either. A
good crowd of rooters does just as
much good and has just as impor
tant a place as any man on the
team. The students must come
out and root for the team. If the
chief cheerer does not do his work,
elect another and that right soon,
for the team now needs just as
much backing as it does in a match
game. The coaching of the cap
tain will do no good if the students
do not brck him up. Now let ev
ery man in college, from Freshman
to Post-graduate, come out on the
lield regularly and help the team,
so that when the captain calls to
the team "Play ball Carolina," we
will be ready to help them do so.
Come out now and to every game.

The regular meeting of the Eli
sha Mitchell Scientific Society was
held last night in tli Chemistry
The evening was profitably
spent by quite a number of stu
dents and faculty; and the papers
were very interesting.
Prof. Cain, president of the
body, called the meeting to order.
Dr. Venable read the first paper
which was on the subject "Iron in
the United States in 1809. "
By figures and statictics he
showed the remarkable output of
iron in the United States and the
great, increase over previous years.
In 1898 the United States produced
11,773,934 tons of pig iron and in
1899,13,bo9,6l5 tons, showing a

"Smallpox Infection and Inocu

and gave its characteristics.
He divided it into six different
