movements and the manual of arms on the I
march, after which the company was |
brought to a right face, when eight of the
men were ordered to fall out several of .
whom were old men in the company. The
company again closed up and drilled for
another fifteen minutes in the manual of
arms and facings, after which nine more
men fell out. leaving Sergts. Palmer,
Nichols, James and Uollowell, Corporal
Godfrey and Private Braden in line.
Among these six men the actual competi
tion took place. The captain drilled them
with right commands and with wrong
ones for upwards of twenty minutes,
when Sergt James, Corporal God
frey and Private Braden had to
drop out After ten minutes more work the
judges declared Sergt Hallowed the win
ner, and he was accordingly decorated with
the gold medal and presented with the
Steele silver cup. Maj. Fitzgerald. Capt.
Armory and Sergi. Maj. Bartram acted as
judges. Time of drill, one hour and five ;
POINTS PICKED dui'ing drill.
We should like to have Capt. Osgood ex
plain where in Upton's tactics is found the
command as "rearrank. aim." given while
the company is at a "front rank, fire kneel
ing." We also noticed that he wanted his
company to execute as "front rank, aim."
when the company were at "as rear rank
lire kneeling." We should further like to
point out to Cant. Osgood that in the di
rect lire in "as rear rank, lire kneeling,"
the men keep their elbow resting on the
left knee. It is only in the oblique firings
in as "rear rank, fire kneeling." that
the men raise the elbows off the knee.
We also noticed that not more than three
men held their pieces at the correct angle,
in the position of load: the angle is twenty
live degrees. In executing "left reverse
arms." Private Braden was the only man .
who executed the movement correctly. ,
Upton says that the gun is carried and j
placed under the left arm with the right \
hand, the left is changed to the small of j
the stock, the right is then carried behind
the back grasping the piece between the
bands; the niece is also returned to the i
right side in the same manner. These. !
movements are not executed the same as
coming to a "reverse arms;" if they were.
Upton would have explained them the
same as he does the reverse arms. We
were surprised to see that such an old sol
dier as Private Braden should be caught in
a competitive drill with his belt on upside
down and also with a dirty bayonet We
were surprised to see Sergt. Maj. Bar

men in the hall as Col. Bend, Lieut. -Col.

a surfeit of it There is in the Flour City
a china dealer whose store is on Nicollet
avenue, in whom is a strange commingling
of the aesthetic spirit and a sordid desire for
base gold. It was in his establishment that
my eyes feasted on rare wares, while my
cars drunk in the art treasures that
fell from the lips of the savant
merchant. On entering, and before my
guide made his appearance. 1 noticed a
table of royal Worcester ware, which sur
passed all the beauties of the shop in ele
gance of foi m and color. This factory has
long been celebrated for the novelties which
each rear brings from its kilns. The pecu
liar effects in solid tones of subdued yellow
raid dull blue, covered with finest filigree
designs in oxydized gold and copper, are.
among the finest things shown this season.
The shapes are superb in their simple
beauty of outline, and the price is — keep

WOULD NOT BE ADORN' RD
with the simplest piece in the collection,
there is not a woman in our fair city who
would not fed rich in its possession. But i
now our friend appears. The Chinaman
has a soft voice and an artful soul (or
should I say, a soul ail filled?) and he
lingers long and lovingly over his treasures,
giving out the impression that he is a de
votee of art only, and pervading the spirit
of the prospective purchaser with the same
lofty feeling. He says naught of barter
and sale; price enters not into his low-toned
con .v -.: iii.oii: b'ssoulis in realms aesthetic
and his mind is free from worldly
dross, until he sees in the eyes of his pa
tron the artistic longing. His voice be
comes more tender as he deftly handles the
'singly ware, as though so precious a thing
as Royal Wooster should be talked of only
hi whispers; and in this guise and by such
gentle wiles he lures his unsuspecting and
now enthusiastic victim to the critical point;
he says "fourty dollars" in tones that sig
nify regret at parting with things dear to
him, the sum dwindles in the exalted im
agination until it appears as so many cents,
and the delighted purchaser bears oil" a hit
of clay that he could place in a package of :
akuuckle's coffee j
and not disturb a grain. The china man '
meanwhile beams the satisfaction of a sor- j
did and hypocritical lucre-lover on his next |
customer, who in turn mistakes the look for !
an evidence of artistic sensibilities. He .
descants learnedly on the '•firing" of hand- I
painted china to the amateur, and warns
her to use metallic colors only. He dis- !
plays wonders of cut glass to envious femi- I
nine eyes, whose owner imagines how great j
an addition to a new Hawthorne avenue I
dining-room such salad bowls would I
be. He brings up a huge corner
jar of dull red glazed Leeds j
ware, and striking an aesthetic pose, mutely I
demands admiration for the ugly thing, j
wlich. by the way, is very fashionable and .
not utterly useless. He displays wonder
ful Doulton in exquisite lace designs |
and 'dead tones.' and parenthetically re- |
marks that Mrs. M. just purchased his '
finest piece for a wedding gift this week.
When asked for pairs of vases, things dear
under the old regime, he pityingly assures
you that '•nothing comes in pairs now
everything is odd." He tells the ignorant
seeker after the ancient form of creamer
that "tankard shapes are now in vogue, j
though, of course, (with an inflection j
that 'speaks .volumes) we still have some
call for the old styles." He points out mar- J
velous Egyptian vases and odor jars, gro- j
tesque in design and brilliant in color. His
eye directs attention to the fashionable
Hungarian ware, while his lips murmur the
beauties of Dresden coffees. Then he leads
the dazed visitor over to the art glass bnc-a
brac aud explains how the exquisite

on peach-blow is secured. He elucidates
lhe mystery of the lustrous and elegant
effects of English ivory, with its delicate,
flesh-colored lining and absolutely new
forms. His hand rests lovingly on a Roc
coco violet jar as he assures his
art-crammed auditor that here we have the
newest and what will be the most popular
art glass. Then he passed on to the lamps
and shifted his remarks to the beauties of
metal art. Glass lamps are no longer in
vogue and the fashionable woman will
have oxydized copper and polished brass
for her reading table. The short-lived rage
for hammered brass received a fitting eulogy
from the Helsatian authority. Now he re
turns again to his favorite china, and while
he tenderly caresses an egg-shell Ilaviland
he sadly and with great emotion tells
how every day increases the ranks of the
decorative fiend, and how this pure fabric.
so dear to all lovers of the beautiful, will
soon be daubed over by some conceited
maid who thinks she "knows art," and has
taken up china painting after six lessons in
landscape and a rapid rush through bolting
cloth, satin, and the whole realm of
womanly work with the brush. And with
a wof ul sigh, as of one whose life was em
bittered by the sins of a wicked world, he
parted from me.
STUDENTS OF THE STATE.
Tlie Oratorical Training In the "Uni
versity Debating Societies.
Change in the Curriculum--Various
Kots« From the Rig School.
There are four debating societies in full
operation in the state university this term.
The senior society is the outgrowth of the
political economy class of last term, and i
the subjects are mostly taken from this sci
ence. The thorough discussions of funda
mental questions which are carried on there
are of great advantage. The sophs, fresh
and subs also have each a debating club
which imputes into various subjects. The
work in these societies is perfectly volun
tary, and furnishes, to quote the Calendar,
a "much-prized opportunity for practice in
extemporaneous speaking." It is here
that the orators who represent the :
university in the inter- state oratorical con- j
tests do their training. The general lack
of interest felt at the university in the lit
erary societies is a subject of much discus
sion among the students and many expla
nations are given. Some lay it to the fra
ternities, others to lack of time caused by
the increased work at the university.
The new system of having tour studies a
The new system of having four studies a
term instead of three for the higher classes
may now be said to have had a fair trial.
Under the old curriculum there were sev
eral subjects left out which were very essen
tial and it was to remedy this that a change
was made. This change requires the stu
dents to do more work than formerly, al
though the recitation hours for each study
were shortened so that only one more hour
per week is a*"ded. Some of the professors
require as much ground to be covered with
four recitations a week as with five, but the
student is able only to do a certain amount.
and some subjects are gone over very su
perficially. Sixty-five recitatious is small
euough time anyway to devote to such a
study as English literature, yet this was cut
down to fifty-two, and, as a result, only
about four-fifths of the work was done
which ought to have been done.
Room for the addition of studies to the
Room for the addition of studies to the
old curriculum might have been obtained
in another way; that is, by raising the re
quirements for entrance and compelling
more work to be done at the preparatory
schools. This is especially so in the
classical course, where the requirements
in the classics are below by almost a year
the leading Eastern colleges. Another
place where the curriculum might be im
proved is in the engineering course. The
requirement of so much literary work
in the lower classes of this course is
a mistake. It has caused several students.
who cared only for mathematics and neces
sary engineering knowledge, to take special
courses, and it also uses a great deal of
time which might very profitably be de
voted to something else. The literary
course is very popular and the number who
take it are increasing year by year.
Class activity lias shown itself during the
past week by several meetings of the sopho
mores. They kept the reason very quiet,
but it can be inferred that a class social
will soon occur, ami the secrecy
is the result of bitter experience.
Following the lead of many other eminent
bodies, the seniors struck. The cause was
that their seats in chapel are in such a piace
that the sun pours down its rays on them
unimpeded by curtains or any excuse for
them. Many of the seniors absented them
selves from chapel until the faculty should
provide them some protection against hav
ing their hair faded or other such calami
ties. Wednesday morning, much to the
astonishment of the seniors, there were
curtains on the junior side but none'
for them. The president explained
that this was a mistake and would be recti
fied immediately, so now harmony is re
isiored and the religious exercises are made
more dignified by the presence of the entire
senior class. The inconvenience of the ex

cuse committee's existence is made to ap
pear very forcibly to the junior history class,
in whose class-room the committee holds
its meetings. A delay of nine or ten min
utes daily out of a recitation of forty min
utes amounts to a good deal.

Our thanks are due to the Ladies of Minneapolis and St. Paul for
the way in which they have treated us since coming to this great
city, and we heartily say THANKS,
Our efforts crowned with success; our business nearly doubled
during the last year; our aisles crowded with multitudes of fair la
dies, all eager, earnest buyers; every one trying to do their duty to
ward themselves, their husbands or families, by making their pur
chases at the establishment and from the firm that treats them most
liberally, by placing the largest assortment, the best goods, at
Before them. No humbug in our advertisements; everything is found
just as represented^ No catch-penny sales for one day. and the price
advanced the day after. Our prices are made at the lowest possible
notch, and remain there until sold, except when a competitor at
tempts to undersell us, then we make a cut that means business.
We call attention to some of the EXTRAORDINARY VALUES
being offered now. We firmly believe, and patrons tell us daily, that
in all their experience they have never seen
AS GOOD VALUES BEFORE.
