Christmas vacation began yesterday
Only a few studeLts will spend the same

longer, and in fact never h.s been, an in
stitution of purely local and limited itn
portance. II' re are students from nearly
all states in the union, and the fame of
the institution has reached as far as In
dia, Pcraia. Denmark, Sweden, Norway,
Germany. The diplomas from Augus
tuna college are respected at several state
universities, Ytle, Harvard, Upsala, Lund
and many other prominent ics'ilutions of
learning. The students carry a good
name and reputation wherever they go,
a iii the name of Rick I.Uad as a city of
learning is ever gaining Btrong footing.
Considering the rapid but sound devel
opment of the past we entertain tbe
brightest hopes and expectations for tbe
future. Are we . building air castles?
No! We base our statements on natural
consequences and the sound development
of the past!
During tbe latt week nearly all students
have been in' the examiner's milt. No
one has been spared, but now they have,
as we hope, all struggled through and
look forward to a merry Christmas.
Several students, who have their homes
far off, have been invited to spend their
Christmas with families in the near vicin

play. -The Circus q recn." at Harper's
theatre last evninit before a fairly large
audieoce. Mies Vickers is always a wel

new play caa bardiy be said to equal
either of the other productions in which
she is so well known. In fact there is
nothing in it x--.epi what the comedienne
gives it and U does not offer much of an

built to smuse all classes of theatregoers.
The btar, Miss Enimeit, is a clever young
woman of 20. who portrays almost any
character male or female, and is conceded
the most versatile woman on the Ameri
can stage. A little tot named George
Elliott who is a prominent figure in the
plot, is a bright chili Bctor. Miss Em
mttt's support is far above iho average
platers and the star should do a thriving
business. Hie brings a car load of new
and beautiful scenery and spares no ex
pense in giving the public all that is
called for in a melo-dramatic production.

tresses on the American stage, and is this
year supported by one of tbe most capa
ble companies in America, including
such distinguished artists as Edmuod
Collier, Louife Fomeroy, Arthur Elliot

and merit. Two highly artistic and
