and contrary to the form of the statute

Those who heard the first of the se
ries of lectures by C. W. Seymour at
the high school assembly room yes
terday afternoon were highly pleased
with it. His subject was "Marie An
toinette," Mr. Seymour has a dramatic
delivery and a great fund of historical
knowledge. His private library collect
ed on his travels is one of the largest
and most complete of historical works.
The high school faculty was so greatly
pleased with the address that an ef
fort will be made to get him to lecture
to the pupils on "Julius Caesar." There
will be two more lectures at the school,
one next Wednesday on "The Passing
of the Spaniard, and the Americas,"
and one the week following. Provi
sion has been made for the compensa

BERG DISMISSED BY
THE CHICAGO JUDGE
No Case Against Him in the Charge cf
Cruelty to Youngster Punished
in School Returns to College.
O. G. Berg, of Augustana college,
who was taken to Chicago a few days
ago to answer to the charge of cruelty
to a pupil who was in his school, has
returned, the case against him having
been dismissed by the judge as having
insufficient evidence. It developed that
the boy, who is 15 years of age, was
the cause of another teacher being
compelled to leave the school. Upon
dismissing the case the court indica
ted that it would be better for Chicago
if a few more of the youngsters got
what they deserved. Mr. Berg is in
his second year in the seminary.

The state supreme court adjourned
at Springfield yesterday afternoon with
out passing upon the validity of the
primary election law. Rumor had ill
that an adverse decision was about to
be rendered which would invalidate all
city and township nominations held un

that the pressure of business had pre

on the new law to give him an oppor
