COLLEGE 10 HAVE
Boilding: to be Erected at the State j
College for Use of the Depart
ment of Music
Friends of the college will be glad
to learn that a conservatory will soon
be erected for the use of the school of
mwsic. The building will stand on
the north part of the campus and will
contain six teaching rooms, sixteen
practice rooms and a commodious re
Students may either secure the use
of the pianos belonging to the college
or bring their own pianos and rent
This conservatory of music will
fill a long felt want at the college
as the musical department has made
wonderful growth during the past few
years and has been greatly crowded
for room. Last year over one hun
dred students were enrolled in that de
partment, not including members of
the band, orchestra and glee clubs.
This certainly speaks well for the
untiring efforts and efficient work of
Professors Strong and Kimbrough,
who have been responsible in a large
degree for the rapid growth of this
popular department during the past
few years. Two new assistants have
recently been added.
—Spokane's Interstate Fair is grow
ing more important to the country
each year. It will not be long until
lodges and other organizations will do
as they do at the big eastern fairs,
and put up permanent headquarters on
the grounds. The woman's Christian
Temperance Union heads all others in
this enterprise at Spokane. This or
ganization of patriotic and reform
women has decided to erect a neat
little bungalow on the fair grounds.
It will be ready for occupancy before
the fair opens, October 9. It will be
a comfortable rest room for women
and a place where they can meet and
where they will serve refreshments.
The women deserve a great deal of
credit for their enterprise. Other
organizations will follow the example.

College this Year.
The prospects for a successful season
in all lines of athletics at the State j
College this year are bright indeed, j
Coach Sweeley will be retained to
coach the foot ball team and says that
the college will this year turn out one
of the fastest teams in the college
All the players are expected back
early and practice will begin on the
day school opens. With the same
coach as last year the squad will be
able to begin where they left off last
year, and no time will be lost in
learning new signals and plays. The
athletic field is being greatly improved
and all will be in readiness by the first
The personnel of the squad will be
about the same as last year, the only
men who will not return being Gill
and Rehorn and perhaps Lobaugh and
Cardwell. This leaves the line the
same as last year and three positions
to fill in the back field. A number
of new men however, have signified
their intention of entering college
who will be valuable acquisitions to
the squad and Coach Sweeley will have
no difficulty in finding good material
for vacant positions.

November 23 Whitman Colllge, at
All of the above games may be re

forward to with great expectations.

—Old timers in Pullman remember
a heavy band ring of gold bearing the
K. of P. emblems, that Wm. Buck
ley used to wear, but which he lost
in April, 1891, between Pullman and
Moscow. At the time of the loss Mr.
Buckley advertised in the Herald, i
offering a reward of $5.00 for the re- !
turn of the ring, but for fourteen i
years no word ever came of the orna- 1
ment. Recently while working on the |
road east of town, Ira Bader un
earthed an object that when cleansed
of its earthly covering showed the
glittering opal eyes of the K. of P.
emblem, and which has now been iden- I
titled as the long lost ring. The
reward for the recovery of the ring
has been paid, and the jewel again
adorns Mr. Buckley's finger.

—The first cruise of the Sacajawea
was ended on Friday of last week,
when the crow had used up its allot -
ted time, and instead of reaching Port
land, had put in all of its time in get
ting through the shoals and rapids of
the Snake. The difficulty was in the
unprecedentec low stage of water in
the Snake, which made navigation
bolow the rapids almost an impossi
bility, removing the stream from the
category of a navigable water course
to a bed of boulders. The Sacajawea
proved a most staunch and seaworthy
craft, however, and suffered no mater
ial damage from the battle with the
boulders beyond an occasional bending
of the propellor blades, which wa3
rapidly repaired, and a sprung shaft,
which may require a few minutes
visit to a machine shop. The boat is
now tied up at Page, at the mouth of
the Snake, and Mr. Mathews may later
continue on down the Columbia in it,
or have it shipped to Coeur d'Alene
lake, where it will be used each sum
mer by the Pullmanites. The mem
bers of the crew who had the time pro
ceeded on to take in the big fair, while
the others who were due home returned
