THE UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA Her Sons Gather To-night to Honor Her—Profs. Mac Master and Kirk Come as Direct Rep- resentatives —Institution's Glorious History. The sons of "Old Ponn" gather around the banquet table to-nig^r at the West hotel. This annual gathering of the Uni versity of Pennsylvania men of the north west •will be made memorable by the pres as honored guests of John Bach Mc- Master, the famous historian, and Dr. Kirk who come as direct representatives of the institution. Governor Van Sant will also be a distinguished guest. That the influence of the university In American life reaches far beyond the classioom in the promotion of national ideas, and in the stimulation of investiga tion and discovery Is well illustrated by Philadelphia's famous institution, the University of Pennsylvania. For the pur pose of providing higher education not then to be had in the province, Benjamin Franklin, in 1743 asked a number of in fluential citizens to aid him in estab lishing an academy in the Quaker city. The times being ill suited to such a project nothing more was heard of It un til 1745, when the desired uid was se cured. From this humble beginning has grown through the last 150 years an in stitution which in the variety and im pressiveness of its various architectural features, in its magnificent museums, in its far famed department of medicine', in its extensive botanical gardens and in the - ' ' distinctively national character of its work, is probable not surpassed by any university at home or abroad. Along two linos of work especially, uni versity extension and archaeological ex ploration, will the University of Penn sylvania always be known as the leader.

LAIUUAM & SON, Baltimore.Mu. m #••©••••••••••••••••••••• now far-reaching throughout the length and breadth of the country. Dr. Pepper resigned the provostahip In 1894. In the language of a distinguished writer, "He had found the university brick and had left it marble." Under the direction of the University of Pennsylvania the excavations of the mounds at ancient Nippur have been car ried on with great vigor. On the basis of the important discov eries made, ancient history has been re constructed at many points. The in scribed objects found cover a period of about 6,000 years, and enable the his torian to go back to the dawn of civiliza tion and cover a period to about 700 A. D. Through them the historical features of the almost legendary kingdoms of Sargon I. and Naram-Sin, about 3,800 B. C, have been established; and, what is more im portant, a still earlier non-semitic civili zation called Suemrian has ben traced. Prior to these excavations, nothing was known of the neriod which precedes Sar gon I. Among the great treasures gathered at Nippur and now in the museums of the university are cuneiform tablets, num bering thousands upon thousands which constitute the most valuable collection in the Avorld. These excavations aie still 'THE LITTLE QUAD," UNIVERSITY DORMITORIES In progress. Minneapolitans will remem ber the interesting explanations of Dr. Hilprecht's work given last winter at the university here by Dr. Clay, his assistant in the excavations. On the fourth of these expeditions sont out in 1898, Prof. Hilprecht discovered the great library at Nippur, the oldest lfbrary in Babylonia. It was of tablets, arranged on shelves. Professor Hilprecht found that the tablets contained sentences, written half a dozen times, as if by a pupil practicing. There were lists of words for chairs, stools and other articles; lists of words for animals, birds or plants. This wa3 the grammati cal and arithmetical and astronomical lit erature of the Babylonians. In addition were lists of dynasties of kins, and the years of their reign, and the deeds of each. There were numbers of astronomical, as trological and mythological tablets, and others bearing beautiful hymns. Practi cally every branch of literature known to the Babylonians is represented. It was a temple library since there were found tablets which showed how many robes the god Bel had on such and such a day; how many temples there were be sides the chief temple, yrh.a.t their reve nues were, etc. There was not the slight est doubt that the explorers actually stood in that early temple library known only by copies found in the Royal Library of Xinevah, 600 B. C. Beside this valuable work through [ which has been deposited in the univer- | sity's museums at Philadelphia, the most valuable Babylonian collection in the world, the University of Pennsylvania has had exploring parties in Central America, Borneo, Central Asia and the South Sea Islands gathering the great collection of ethnological objects for her museums. Of special interest is the South Sea Islands collection, the moat complete extant. Thus the work of this institution founded by Franklin has been truly directed to a broad and elevated enlightenment. Her -work, however, has by no means been confined to archeaology and uni versity extension. In Philadelphia is the oldest medical school in America, and associated with it the memories of such distinguished names es Agnew and Ashurst in surgery, Leidy, the great an atomist and scientist, and Wood the dis tinguished author and therapeutist, and many other famous men. Here is her dental department, which has made American dentistry far famed abroad. At the opening of her new law building two years ago were gathered the most distinguished representatives from America and Europe. In the field of so cial science, Professor James who has added laurels to the university, and. made UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA LIBRARY THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL. for himself a wide refutation, and in Professor John Bach McMaster, the Amer ican historian, who fills the chair of his tory, are embodiments of the vigor and national spirit of this institution of learn ing. BOOTH-TUCKER'S PROGRAM He Is Devoting the Day to St. Paul Salvationists. Commander Booth-Tucker of the Sal vation Army is devoting Monday to St. Paul. This evening he will deliver his famous' lecture entitled "Light In Dark ness" at the People's church in that city. To-morrow morning at 10 o'clock he will address an officers' council in the First THE MUSEUM OF ARCHAEOLOGY AND PALtUNTOLOGY | Baptist church and also at 2 In the after- I noon. In the evening he will address a j great Scandinavian meeting in the Swed- I ish Temple. On Wednesday officers' coun cils will be held in the First Baptist church at 10 a. m. and at 2 p. m. led by Lieutenant Margetts and staff. In the evening a special council will be held in the barracks, 218 Hennepin avenue. Thurs day morning another council will be held in the First Baptist church. A union consecration meeting will follow at the barracks in the evening. Lieutenant Col onel Margetts will lead the Thursday meetings. At 5 o'clock Tuesday afternoon the offi cers will proceed to the second floor of the Columbia restaurant, wher the Pro vincial Headquarters will provide a free tea in honor of the commander. The commander addressed three large meetings yesterday in the Y. M. C. A. auditorium. At the morning gathering seven wire converted. The afternoon address for young men was the largest meeting of the character conducted by the association. At the same hour Brigadier Chendler conducted a meeting at the bar racks. Commander Booth Tucker addressed a large gathering at the Y. M. C. A. In the evening. The service was assisted musically by the National brass band and the singers brought from New York. Fol lowing the address the army soldiers went through the audience making personal ap peals to the unconverted to come to the front. • THE SHORT STORY Dr. Burton Discusses It With Illus trations From Kipling. Richard Burton spoke Saturday evening at the Unitarian church on "The Triumph of the Short Story," illustrating it with readings from Kipling's "Courting of Dinah Shadd." Four or five years ago, Dr. Burton said, the short story had fairly eclipsed the "full length novel" in popular favor. The latter has come to the fore again through the craze for historical romance, but the short story still reigns in the magazines. Publishers say there is no longer tbo de mand for it in book form, but this may be due to 'h- fact that they push the novel harder. It is a mistaken idea that the short story is easy of construction. It presents prob lems of selection and expression which do not rouble the novel writer. He cau create an atmosphere, and a perspective, while the short story must sketch the pic ture on a flat surface. Kipling has done his best work in short stories, and Dr. Burton ventured the pre diction that his fame would rest finally on his earlier work, his stories of Indian life. It is seldom that a successful fhort story writer turns with equal success to the longer fern' of fiction, and vice versa. Kipling's early stories have sometimes the defect of brutality and cynicism, but j in most of them there is a warm hu ! manity. They have an old testament ! flavor, lacking the new testament "sweet ness and light," but are splendid, strong pictures of life.

THE 86TH ANNUAL CONVENTION Bee Keeper* and .Forestry People Will Hold Their Meeting / In Conjunction. *Orchardists of Minnesota and neighbor ing states will meet in the Plymouth Con gregational church, : Nicollet avenue and Eighth street, to-morrow, for a four days' conference on topics horticultural. The occasion is. the thirty-fifth annual session of the Minnesota State Horticul tural society. . The program for the sev eral sessions of the fruit growers, and of the bee-keepers, foresters, and woman's auxiliary, who meet In conjunction with the horticulturists, includes a large num ber., of men -^ and women who are known as authorities in their respective lines end as entertaining speakers. There will be regular sessions morning, afternoon and evening, until Friday even ing. These will include an address by C. M. Lorlng of Minneapolis on "Improve ment of Public and Private Grounds," on Tuesday evening; a business session Thursday morning, when the annual re ports will be given and officers elected; a memorial hour on Thursday afternoon, for John H. Harris of La Crescent, founder and the oldest member of the society, Judson N. Cross, William Mack intosh and Professor Otto Lugger. The annual banquet will be held Thursday evening. The Ladles' Auxiliary will hold its regular meeting Wednesday, and the Bee-keepers will meet Wedesnday and Thursday. Big Exhibit of Apples. The exhibits of fruits by the associa tion this year will be confined largely to apples. In two of the small rooms ad joining the lecture room where the' meet ings will be held, stands have been erected and arrangements made for the exhibition of several hundred plates of apples of the best variety Minnesota has produced during the past year. The so ciety came near losing a large portion of its samples in the fire at the Produce Refrigerating company's plant, Saturday afternoon. Much of the fruit desired for exhibition at the meeting was placed in cold storage, and it narrowly escaped being consumed by fire. There was some damage by water but this was not mate rial. A special exhibit will be made this year of seedlings, that is, of apples from trees grown from the seeds. This is prac tically a new venture, as most new trees are secured by grafting. It has been found, however, that a new variety is secured with the germination of each new seed and some hardy grades that will winter well have been raised during the past few years. Samples of these will be on ex hibition at the church. To-morrow's program is: MORNING. Commercial Small Fruit Growing—"Planting and Care of a Field of Red Raspberries," F. J.
