The second meeting of the Aus tin Literary .Society this term was held last Saturday night with an attendance, considering the veiy inclement weather, that shows the interest and determination of the members that are peeking to un- t'dd the literature of our masters and attain ease and ability in dec lamaliou and oratory. A very interesting program was carried out, and each member present felt that the benefit ile rived during the hour was far greater than could have been re ceived from many other sources. It is essential that every schoo of importance should have a strong and permanent literary society. W ith our reliable and old stand ! . I a. ing memoersnip anu me help o! the corps, there is no reason why we should not have as strong a so ciety as any school in the .State. Every student has some time to devote to the improvement of bis literary ability and the power of presenting bis views clearly to an audience.

Il was on a balmy day in De. cemU-r l.HM, that the (tathruht aggregation went f..rlh to do battle with the hcts of Au-tin IL.H. The men nf Au-tin bad on various lield of honor won laurel and fame. We, the (.athrightcis, of i lehs fortunate trile, hud not vet di-tinguMied ourselves by any such glorious accompliphments; so it was wiih hhut of joy w bailed this opportunity. Our voices passed the ball around the circle, in order tbat the grand ttand might get the full benefit of our fine joints. 1 In Dot more than an hour and a half after time the referee's whis. tie sounded the sicnal to beuin. W -! We lined up in fine style, there is do uouoi oi mat, and the way we went for those fellows from Aus. tin hall was a caution. We tackled them. We tackled them front and rear, in the center (and on both wing. We even laid seige to their ftore of supplie s and attempted to cut oiX reinforce, merit. We tackle 1 them by the neck, hair, noe, feet, or any other projections that came handy. You p-e that the main poict was to tackle. The ref. ree that day were imbued with a premature) Christmas g-neroMty and they gave us permi-sion to see how many .National Athleti.: Ass-ieia. lion rules we could smash in a given length of time. Ail we lacked in smashing up to the rec ord limit we took out in smhing heads. 'Kachoneofus noon discovered that he could mke one particular kind of grand stand play better thun any other and thereafter he went around looking for opportu nities to display his Darticular a bilities. Some of the fine plays made that day should be made known to the public, for indeed l hey were line. For instance, our juarter discovered that he could lly, so time and again he could be seen soaring atnjve the line after the enemy bad carried the ball around the end and were gone I low n the field. i.eing quite frequently more concerned almut the welfare of my own head than about the doings of other players, I did not get a chance study the peculiarities of each man in action, but I sar one or wo plays spread upon the grid iron which ought to bo immortal ized. One of these was a U-autiful uiib'e pass made by one of us. Since the game we have learned that it was a superb piece of play ing.
