What col. Robt. G. Ingersoll Thinks
of the "Athens of the West."
Robt. G. Ingersoll was seen after
the lecture Monday night by a rep-
resentative of the DAILY, and ex-
pressed himself as well pleased with
his audience and reception.
Speaking of the University and its
phenomenal growth, lie expressed
himself as follows:
"I consider the University of
Michigan the greatest institution of
the kind in this country."
"The one distinguished feature
which is noticeable here is the prac-
ticable nature of the instruction."
"I have seen men who could talk
seven languages and did not know
enough to pay their board." "I
was surprised to see your large Uni-
versity hall.' ""The acoustic
property of the hall is exceptionally
good." "I was especially glad to
have an opportunity to speak to the
students on the subject of Shakes-
peare, because I hoped to get the
students to study his plays more
thoroughly." "I have been inter-
ested in the growth of this institu-
tion since 1847, when I was here for
the first time." "It seems to me
that there has been a remarkable
growth in liberality and breadth of
thought at this institution during
the last decade." "This is an indi-
cation of the tendency of the times
iu which we live, and is a good sign
of our advance in personal liberty,
freedom of thought, and its attend-
ing benefits."
Chicago Observatory.
C. T. Yerkes is to build an ob-
servatory for Chicago University
and furnish it with the largest teles-
cope in the world. The lenses to
be used are ones made several years
ago at the order of residents of
Southern California, as a counter-
attraction to the Lick Observatory.
On account of a lack of funds they
were never accepted, and were al-
lowed to lie in the rough at Cam-
bridgeport, in the hands of the
makers. The attention of Mr. Yer-
kes was called to the matter, and he
purchased the discs at cost price.
The instrument alone is to cost
$5oo,ooo, and will be the largest
single donation yet received by the
university, exclusive of Mr. Rocka-
feller's gift.
