The Chicago University expects to make fur

any other university in the world. Its ambition
Is to become the world's greatest and most thor
ough seat of learning, with thr foremost profes
sors of all nations in its faculty. Although only
a few years old, it is already a giant. It has
thirty-one immense buildings and is planning
to erect twenty-three more. Two of these, the
hall of classical languages and the general
library— a memorial to Dr. William R. Harper.
the dead president— are to be constructed imme
diately, the funds having been subscribed.
There la a common impression that the uni

built wholly by Mr. Rockefeller. This is an
error. It has outgrown its sectarianism. Mr.
Rockefeller has giver. It the trifle of $23,515,

The campus contains one hundred acres in Qi«
most fashionable residence district of I'hicajo.
It lies on both side of the Midv-ay Plalsano*
and midway between Washington a: I Jackson
parks. The plaisance is six hundred feet wld«
and has three driveways, with gn • ' -ward b«
tween. The park and university authorities ar»
working together on a plan to convert one sM*
of this mile-long strip of land into a can-al, t»
be connected with I^ake Michigan, to provide
the university with a course for boat races. Th«
two parks which the plaisance connects contain
about one thousand acres. At jr^?cri the uni
versity buildings are all on the north sii!e of tbm
plaisnnce. There, too, lies Marshall Field, tb«
athletic playground given by Marshall Field.
Besides the one hundred acres in th* 1 ■ ity cany
pus the university has seventy- five acrea
around the Terkes Observatory at Lake Generm.
Original in many things, the University of ChV
0 is an imitator in others. There Is much
at tut it that is English. Its architecture !a
ish-Gothic, and its buildings, all of b!u«
sandstone, are grouped after the Oxford plan of
The Law Building, costing $280,000 and bunt
with a special fund, is modelled on the outsid*
after the famous chapel of Kings <"olieg-«, at
Cambridge University, England. Its interior,
however, is different.
Hutchinson Hall, known also as the Common*
and the men's dining hall, is another adaptation
of British ideas. Its interior is a replica of
Christ Church, Oxford.
Mitchell Tower is an exact copy of the ujwer
of Magdalen College, at Oxford University, in
England. The Bartlett gymnasium <-i>ntaln»

about $30,000,000, yet it has an v ■ ficlt of
nearly $200,000, which Mr Rockefeller a.lwaya
makes up. Its I udget for the ling year totals
The trustees believe the university has ac
complished wonders. It opened its doors in 1802
with 696 students; in 19**1 it had fi,079. and In
this school year it has nearly six thousand. On
the campus it has schools that develop pupils
from the first grade above kin.ilergiirtf to the
highest degrees. Its daily paper poes to one
thousand high schools every morn in.tr: also to
a lar?e number of subs, ribers. It conducts col
lege courses by mail and maintains a public
lecture system. It is affiliated with many other
institutions and -operates with all.
The coming fumm'-r the university is going
ir.to the business of making mayors and alder
men. It will establish a municipal government
of Its own, that It may the better teach practical
