Un iversity extension teaching, and
authorized thie menbers of the fac-
ulty to accept invitations from local
bodies to deliver lectures on this
subject. The faculty is not to un-
dertake local organization, but is to
await invitations from societies or
classes desiring to enter on the work.
Tie entire expense must be borne
by the local organizations. The
University will soon issue circulars
giving more details.

Webster Society Entertainment.
Wednesday evening the Webster
Society gave its initial public enter-
tainment of the year in the lecture
room of the law huileding. A large
and appreciativg audience filled the
room to its 'utuost capacity. The
programme, a very interesting one
from first to last, was opened by
President A, F. Sheldon witl an ad-
dress of welcome. During the course
of his address Mr. S. took occasion
to depreciate ideas held by some
people regarding the lawyer, and
extolled in eloquent language the
dignity of the legal profession. Miss
Minnie Davis followed with a piano
solo, and acquitted herself in a cred-
itable manner. "The Age of Prob-
lems" was ably handled by A. Web-
ster, who showed himself thoroughly
conversant with the subject under
consideration. An oration, "A De-
pendent Commonwealth," by J. W.
Browning, was well delivered, re-
flecting credit upon Mr. 13. both as
an orator and writer. Next came a
banjo solo by Mell Gillespie, accom-
panied by Miss Davis. The excel-
lence of which number is best at-
tested to by the hearty encore which
it elicited. A satire by J. G. Kral
closed the first part of the programme,
and was a happy production. "A
Man of the Future was a true por-
traval of the ideal anarchist. Spark-
ling with humor, it served to enliven
the general prosaicness of the excel-
Part second was opened by Mrs.
C. D. Colby with a violin solo. The
rendition was excellent, andyreceived
a merited encore. In the scene
from "Othello," Messrs. W. I.
Maney and H. D. Jewell entered in-
to the true conception of their res-
pective roles, and acquitted them-
selves grandly. The cornet solo by
G. W. Collins, was admirably ren-
dered. A discussion on " Two
Views of Parnell's Life" by Messrs.
H. A. Smith and J. E. Roberts, was
one of the principal features of the
exercises. The bright side of the
great leader's life was stronly pre-
sented by Mr. Smith, who argued
that the sin of the present was more
than covered by the charities and'
good works of Parnell's past. Iii
refutation of this Mr Roberts argued
that the evil which led to Parfll's"
downfall wasfof too serious a nature
to merit forgiveness, even in consid-
e ration of past virtues. The exer-
cises were closed by a piano soloI
by Miss. Davis. In every sense the .
entertainment was a decided success,
and the efforts of the participants
well merited the highest encomiums
of praise. Further entertainments
by the Webster Society will be looked
forward to with pleasant anticipation
by all those who had the good for-
tune to be present last evening.
Rev. Duncan McGregor. ,
When Mr. MtcfGIregor appeared on
the platform he was somewhat em-
harassed but soon warmed up to his
subject and delivered a fairly good
lecture on "The Grip and Grapple
of Great Men and Great Nations."
Life is a struggle. The conquering
of difficultier crowns all success.
Men do not fail because of lack of
sufficient power, but because they
fail to use their power. The great
secret of all success is in harnessing
power. One obstacle is always in
the way to success, i. e., the difficul-
ties to progress. Those nations who
fail to conquer the difficulties of
civilization are in the rear. Tliroulgh
the darkness of the 'siiddle Ages thej
dim light of the missionary was seen
spreading the Gospel Truth, without
which progress cannot advance.
Protestant England shines as a gold-
en beam and is ever ready to meet
the growing demands of civilization.
Fortune never comes without labor
and our most promsinent Wisen have
become such by surmounting many
obstacles. Master the situation or
it will master you. This is the con-
flict and the secret of success. The
difference between the unsuccessful
and successful lies in inspiration.
We need a high ideal in order to
succeed. Another requisite to suc-
cess is that we must tend to the
building of character. As a story
teller Mr. McGregor is a flat failure,
but as an orator on the whole he is a
great success for so young a man,
and compares favorably with Russell
H. Conwell. His descriptive powers
are great and his rhetorical climaxes
all that could be asked for. His
characterization of Lincoln's life was
