R ev. Robjert Nourses Lecture at
University Hall Saturday
Evening, Nov. 15.
The Webster and Jeffersonian
societies are arranging to give
two or three extra lectures during
thezyear. A committee consist-
ing of Messrs. Park, Jewell and
Puter, from the Webster, and
Messrs. Baldwin, Largent and
Newcomer, from the Jeffersonian,
has been appointed.
They have been fortunate in
securing Rev. Robert Nourse to
deliver the first lecture on Satur-
day evening, Nov. 15. He will
appear in his great hit "'Dr. Je-
kyll and Mr. Hyde." Mr.
Nourse needs no introduction in
this city, ni lie is already well and
favorably known here. As a dra-
matic orator lie is unsurpassed.
He is endorsed by the leading
men of the country, and the press
in every city in which he has ap-
peared speaks in glowing terms of
Iis abilities.
The societies are endeavoring
to raise funds to repair and beau-
tify their rooms, and should be
commended in their efforts at the
same time to afford a rare enter-
tainment. The admission price
has been placed at the low figure
of twenty-five cents, and Univer-
sity Hall should be crowded on
this occasion.
Tne Baldwin Lectures.
Rt. Rev. Alexander C. Garrett,
bishop of Northern Texas, will
deliver the first of the Baldwin
Lectures for '90 before the Ho-
bart Guild on Sunday evening,
Nov. 23, in St. Andrew's church.
The second lecture will be given
on the evening of Friday, Nov.,
28, in Harris Hall, the third in

St. Andrew's church the follow-
ing Sabbath, and the fourth in
Harris Hall, Dec. 5. The mem-
bers of the Hobart Guild will at-
tend in a body.
Bishop Garrett's subject has not
yet been announced, but as he is
said to be an exceedingly logical
and eloquent speaker, his lectures
cannot fail to be both interesting
and instructive.
A Medical Society.
A number of the medical stu-
dents met last night and organ-
ized a medical society, which will
be to the medics what the En-
gineering Society is to the en-
gineers. It will probably be
named after one of the professors.
Several committees were ap-
pointed, which will meet next
Saturday evening to perfect the
organization. The first regular
meeting may be expected within
two weeks.
A gun club has been organized
at Cornell.
