fortune. Tho peculiar thing, 1 wns almost going to say strnngo thing, but
It 1b not strange, Is that no ouo scorns to think the lucky groom worth
more than a passing remark.

Maty Lu.retla Crolghton was the wife,
of Edward Crclghlon, after whom the
collese Is namedi Kdward Crelghton
died intestate on November S, 1S74. He
had Intended to found a college, but he
passed away before the work was begun.
As ho left no 111, his wife was not
hound leaally to. carry out his plan But !
as h memorial to her husband's memory, I
Mrs. Crelghton made preparations for the
founding of an Institution. Death over
took her before she could execute her j
plans, and she died on January 23, IS76, ,
about two years aftr His death of f;d-'
In her will she left the sum of JIUO.000
for the founding of a college, half of
which was to be spent In buildings and
the other half Invested In securities, the
Interest of which was to maintain tho
school. The late John A. Crelghton,
James Crelghton and Herman Kountze
were named ns executors of the estate,
and the college, on conip"f:oii. was to be
turned over to tho right reverend bishop
of Omaha. Rev. James O'Connor was
then blshon and the property wns turned
over to him on July 1, li'it. Bishop O'Con
nor, finding It Impossible to handle the
Institution, transferred It to the Jesuit
order December 4, 1979.
Tho college opened on September 2,
1S7S, with MM students. Ono large struc
ture, the present main building, was
erected. It was numbered anions
Omaha's finest buildings.
Hard times struck the university :Jler.
but with the financial a'.d of John A.
Ciclghton and numerous others In Omaha,
the Institution has l.iado great strides. To
the main building has been added two
others of equal size, while a large house
library has been Installed. During all
theso yens no tuition has been charged.
The present astronomical obscrvatorj
