Where was Villiers?
There are few persons in this
busy world of ours, who have had
a life more full of thrilling inter-
est than the man who is to address
us to-morrow night, Frederick
Villiers. Villiers is the was artist
of the London Graphic. IIn a
litte book souvenirs of the prince
of war correspondents, Archi-
bald Forbes, there is an interesting
sketch of Villiers' first campaign.
It was in the Servian War in 1877
that Villiers, then a boy, was tear-
fully entrusted by his mother to
the care of Forbes during the cain-
paign. Both men threw their
fortunes with the Russian Army,
and bore together the neglect of
blunt old Schaborsky, the want of
suitable food and the charges of
the Turks. At last in the battle
of Radisoro, Villiers, who had
been ill and weak all day, was
forced to leave the front ranks
and retire to assist the surgeons
in the rear. When at the close
of the day, Forbes sought hire, he
was no where to be found nor was
there a man who remembered'
having seen him.
All night Forbes sought for
him but to no avail, and in the
morning there came tidings that
the Turks had crept into the vill-
age of Radisoro, and slaughtered
every man there. With a heavy
heart Forbes abandoned the quest
and set out for the telegraph sta-
tion at Bucharest, where lie re-
solved to give one day to fortune
before telegraphing to the mother
in London the sad fate of her son.
But while dining in the garden of
the hotel Forbes was startled by
hearing a familiar voice call out,
"Waiter, quick - dinner ; I'm
beastly hungry." It was Villiers;
he had been asleep in an ambu-
lance wagon in Radisoro. A W right, Kay & Co.
young surgeon had jumped on the
box and driven the vehicle out of Fore gn Buyers, inporters of Geas
the village just as the Turks had and Art Goods, Jewelers ar d Op-
surged up close behind it. It was ticiars. Manufacturers of the

Freshman Independent Caucus.
The Independents of '94 met
in Apha Nu Hall last eveiing to
select candidates for Saturday's
election. The meeting was
graced by the presence of four
charming co-eds, probably the
first time in the history of the
University that co-eds have at-
tended a freshman caucus. A.

After deciding that the candi-
date for president should, if
elected, agree to resign his posi-
tion if lie decided to join a fra-
ternity, an informal ballot was
taken for president which resulted
in 14 votes each for Mr. Lobe
and Mr. Ricketts. On the sec-
ond informal ballot Lobe's sup-
porters numbered 18, Ricketts'
14, and Lyons' 10. Wire-pulling
now commenced in earnest and
on the third ballot Ricketts re-
ceived 25 votes, Lobe 19, and
Lyons 9. A formal ballot was
next taken, giving Ricketts 32
votes, Lobe 27 and Lyons 7.
None receiving a majority another
ballot was ordered. The sup-
porters of Lyons now combined

TRAGEDIAN LOUIS JAMES AS
An important Engagement at the
Opera House' Next Tnursday
Ev n ing.
An event of unusual importance
to all lovers of legitimate acting
will be the appearance of Mr.
Louis James at the Opera House,
next Thursday evening, in Shake-
speare's greatest tragedy, "Julius
Caesar." Mr. James is now con.
sidered our leading actor of trag-
edy on the stage to-day, possess-
ing the intellectual dramatic at-
tributes of Edwin Booth and in
physical qualifications far sur-
passing him; Mr. James, in char-
acters like 6"Brutus" in " Julius
Caesar," " Virginius" and "<Othel-
lo," stands to-day without an
equal. His dramatic education
has been long and enthusiastic.
His conceptions of a character
are true and his'presentation of
them in harmony with his ideal.
We are free to aver that there
will be no other occasion so fertile
in interest at the Opera House
