Auntin, Tex., Oct. 12.—Everybody is busy
on both side* of the campus preparing for
the field sports on St. Edward's day, cele-
brated this year ojv Tuesday, because the
13tlh falls on Sunday. There will probably
be not fewer than a 'hundred entries for
the field sports. During the past week
some queer scenes might be witnessed on
the senior or the junior campus. It was
fun, for Instance, to see two heavy six-
footers, like Von Roeder and 'McDonald,
with their legs tied together practicing for
the three-legged race, make a misstep and
tumble to 'the ground, one trying to stand
on his head, and the other sprawling on
a 1*1 fours. The ordhe»tra and band, under
the leadership of Prof. Becker and Prof.
Schuh, are splendidly trained for the
musical part of the programme on the
evening of the 14th. There is also not a
little excellent vocal talent, but I have
not secured the names of 'those deserving
special mention. Following is the pro-

The Brownson literary society's weekly
meetings have already become interesting,
the literary part of the programme being
Interspersed wttlh lively musical selections
by Messrs. Way, Willcox and others. Sev-
eral new members were admitted at the
last meeting, but as membership is re-
stricted It has been decided that no more
shall be admitted after the 15th of this
monlt'h. At t'he last meeting, besides re-
arrangement of constitution and by-laws,
M. Alonso declaimed in a spirited manner
"Othello's Apiology;" Charles Langham-
mer, "The Child and Mother;" Joseph R.
Hickman, "Count C'andesplne's Standard;"
Stephen F. Kubald, Brutus' "Harangue on
tJhe Death of Caesar." Win. H. Way had
an essay on "Plant Life." The leading
event of the evening, however, was the
excellent opening address of the president
of the society, Mr. L. von Roeder. On the
programme for the next meeting1—'this
evening—is an essay by W. H. Crain, Jr.,
recitations by Ferdinand Lordan, Wiliam
T. Schmitt, John L. Ward, and a violin
solo 'by Charles Langhammer, accom-
panied by Way on the piano. The next
debate Is, "Resolved, that Stock raising Is
of 'More Benefit to the United States Than
Agriculture." Affirmative, Alonso and
Von Roeder; negative, Stephen F. Ku-
bala and G. D. Wade.
There have been a large number of base-
ball games oin both the senior and junior
campus during the week, two between the
senior first nine and the) first nine of the
Texas deaf institute. Honors about even,
but in favor of St. Edward's. Two be-
tween the senior first nine and a picked
nine from town, decided in favor of t'he
college, and a very interesting game of
eleven innings between the junior first
nine and. senior third nine—6 to 8 in favor
of the third nine. Tlhis game was tied at
both the ninth and tenth innings, 6 to 6,
both sides being shut out in tlhe tenth.

The members of St. Mildred's literary so-
ciety filled the programme arranged at the

the society were read, after whicJh a mo-
tion was made that literary critics be

Mohday, the day for the regular meeting
of the 'Hellenic circle, fell this year on the
7th, the exact anniversary of tlhe famous
battle of Lopanto, when Don John of Aus-
tria defeated Sellm II, thereby ending the
ambitious inroads of the Ottoman empire
upon Christian territory in Europe. The
young ladtes very appropriately entertained
the circle 'by the perusal of an original
play written some years since for the pu-
pils entitled "The First Rosary Sunday, or
the Christian and the Turk." In this*pro-
duction Is conveyed with lively and dra-
matic force a true reflection of the actual
condition of Europe at the time, the mo-
lives of the contestants, the debased na-
ture of the aggressors and the lofty trust
in the God of armies ok the part of the
Christian forces in that memorable engage-
At tlhe meeting of the Edward Sorin lit-
erary society an article was read from the
September number of 'tihe Dial, entitled "A

During the past week two competitions
were held by them, one in arithmetic ami
the other in United Stages history. In the
first mentioned Misses Blocker and Way
a^ted as leaders. On the first round M-s
Way's party took three prisoners. This
served to arouse tlhe opposing force, which
in turn regained the lojt prisoners and
took three more. The competition was
long and well sustained by both parties,
and resulted in the triumph of Miss
Blocker. For excellency Misses Way, Tay-
lor, Miller, Groos, Webo, .Marshall, Blocker
and Wellmer deserve mention.
Misses Conkle and Miller led the his-
torical tournament, which was also sharp
and animated, resulting in the victory of
'Miss Conkle. The triumphant leader and

Austin, Tex., Oct. 12.—With to-day closes
another week of the university's career,
and beginning wSt'h Monday morning the
machlinery of this grtat tnstitutkwi will all
be running. Like a stream as it winds
along its course -gathering from every lit-
tle rill and brook, 'becomes greater and
greater in volume, so with the university
of Texas. She receives! student® from all
parts of the state during the entire year.
The past week brought thirty-two addd-
tiional students to the uniiverslty, making
the total enroilliment to date 394, as against
367 for the same time last session. This
shows x godn of twenty-seven over the cor-
responding period of 1894-95. At the present
time the number of students In each de-
partment is as follows: Academic, 262; law,
114; engineering, IS. As to the distribution
among the sexes, 100 are females and 294
■maies. In the lost two departments the
students are all males. The freshman
class, as usual, Is very large, the other
classes deereasaji*r in number until the sen-
ior is reached, where the membership at
present Is about thirty.
The senior class was organized last Fri-
day afternoon ar.d the foli!owing officers
ete-tfted: A. O. 'McLaughlin, president;
Noyes D. Smith, vice president; Effle
Giuves, secretary; W. A. Spalding, treas-
urer; Dave Furnvan, sergeant at aims.
Football continues to be the most ab-
sorbing top-'ic of conversation. In the early
part of the week all eyes were turned to
'tihe probable coach. The students became
very much interested when they learned
that on Monday night the management had
telegraphed for Thompson, who coached
for Milssouni last soason. But after wait-
ing several days for a reply and nothing
was hoard of hlim, Frank Crawford of
Oma'ha, Neb., was telegraphed for. Prof.
McK&e, one of the managers, told me late
'this afternoon that he had just received a
message from Crawford accepting the of-
fer. Crawford wilil leave Om'aiha on Tues-
day, which will'l put him here about Thurs-
day or Friday, w*hen he Will immediately
fake charge of the team Crawford's mer-
its h'ava been fully investigated by 'both
(Mr. Slaughter and the present manage-
ment and I think (he will fully demonstrate
to our boys his abilities as a coach. He
co>aiched for Baker college during the sea-
son of 1892-93 and has performed a similar
service for the university of 'Nebraska
eleven the past two years. The Nebraska
people speak very hlghily of hiiim and say
we could «ot have -gotten a 'better coach.
The boys are out every afternoon and
practice faithfully. They seem to be de-
termined to maintain the reputation of the
•■university in football, as well as in other
matters. All who expect to try for places
on the team have signed a pledge to use
no tobacco tin any form and to abstain
from the use of alcoholic drinks. Seme of
/he boys will rrJliss their beer and llmburg-
er but they wilild hiave to stand it if they
wish to secure places on the eleven. A
neiw possibility for the position of center
'has developed In the person of Mr. J. D.
Stroud of Cleburne. Mr. Stroud is simply
immense; hiis head reaches almost to the
clouds, while hiis body spreads out a fath-
am or more. He weiiglhs nearly 250 pounds
and is ve.ry active. None of the suits
were large enough for him—not even
•\Baby" Meyers', and the boys took up a
subscript ion to have one made to his or-

other big man, has been practicing left
guard and indications are he will make a
good player. James Caperton, a short and
stocky youth from the quiet little village of
St. Elmo, willl be tried as full back. He

ewe to the university of Arkansas asking
for dates. The Tulane team is very a:nx-
ilO'US to play and have held open for our
benefit the only date for which they have
made no engagement, and th'ait Is Thanks-
giving day. Prof. McRae Is trying to ar-
range for two games—one here on Thanks-
giving and the otlher there on some day to
be defer mined later. The A. & 'M. boys,
who, by the way. are very ambitious in
this direction, are desirous of meeting us
again on the gridiron. So you see the in-
terest in football Is becoming quite exciit-

it is sometimes said that a professor in a
university is extravagant and unbusiness-
like 'in the disposition of 'his wages. How-
ever this may be, there is at least one pro-
fessor in the university of Texas who has
an eye to economy. The worthy peda-
gogue under consideration Inquired of
Judge Clark the other day how much of
his salary would be forthcoming the pres-
ent month; said he had a chunCe to buy
his winter's supply of coal for $1 per. ton
less than it cost him before, and his wife,
who had been on a trade wiith a poultry
man over a week for some nice pullets,
had about come to an agreement after per-
suading the man. to fall two 'bits on the
let (three dozen), and he wanted to know
how much cash ihe could depend on.

AIDD-RAN CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY.
Thorp Springs, Tex., Oct. 12.—We have
just entered into our second month. Pros-
pects were flattering from the first day,
and we have run with an acceleration since
we first got the harness well adjusted.
The enrollment Is far ahead of this time
last session and the students as a whole
are superior. The general Interest aroused
in all our conventions last summer in be-
half of our institution resulted in raising
a. fund which will soon be $50,000 to endow
a Bible chair, and nearly $2000 as a loan
fund to help young ministers. The preach-
ers have a well managed dormitory, where
they get good accommodation for about $H
per month. Reducing expenses this way
has added about thirty-five ministerial and
Bible students to the attendance.
The senior class consists of about fifteen
or twenty applicants for classic degrees,
■beside a number in special departments-
commercial, Biblical, music, art, etc.
We believe we have In the Walton and
Add-Ran literary societies two of the very
best organizations of the kind in the state.
The generous rivalry for exealUnoe which
exists between them admirably succeeds
in bringing out the best efforts fron the
best young gentlt-men and ladies ot the
school. The local journal of each society
is a special feature of much remark and
merriment. The light of a new stai has
been added to the glory of our society con-
stellation this session. However, i is
partially a Biblical society for yiung
preachers. It does not. conflict with the
other advanced societies, so it will lave
the help of both the Add-Ran and Walton.
Our faculty lias been much strengthened
this session in the election of Prof. J W.
Froley, A. M., of Chicago university, tc the
chair of mathematics, and Miss Theidie
Cayce, L. B., to the department of ehcu-
Present indications look like we fhall

Tehuacana, Tex., Oct. 10.—Last Friday
afternoon the Sappho-Adelphian literary
society rendered a most pleasing and en-
joyable programme, as follows:
Recitation—"Mr. Brown's Hair Cut"
Miss llattle Cockrlll
Essay—"Success in Life" Mrs. Adams
Song—"Joe, Joe, My Josephine"
Mr. Rhea Wade
Selection—"Love in Latin"....Miss Fancher
Items Miss Hoffer
Recitation—"The Inventor's Wife"
Miss Hart man
To show the appreciation for the work
of the young ladies the society hall was full
even to overflowing, standing room being
at a premium. As a memento of the occa-
sion every one present received a beautiful
souvenir programme, most artistically ar-
ranged. At the close of the programme,
upon the invitation of the president, Rev.
Homer T. Wilson gave us all a few mo-
ments of hearty laughter at his descrip-
tion of the earlier days of school facilities,
etc. The Tehuacana orchestra executed
the music for the occasion.
Friday evening, October 4, the Rev. Ho-
mer T. Wilson of Fort Worth delivered the
anxiously awaited lecture, the first of the
annual series. His theme was "America's
Uncrowned Queen, Woman." The subject
was viewed from three standpoints, that
of maiden, wife and mother. The presenta-
tion of these three phases of woman's life
was such as only a man of the profound-
est thought and Christian principles could
set forth. Mr. Wilson's power of delivery
Is such as to be coveted, and, without hesi-
tation, he may be called the "Grady of the
south" to-day. Notwithstanding the in-
clemency of the weather he was received
by a large audience.
At the invitation of the Y. M. C. A., Mr.
Wilson gave another lecture on Saturday
morning at 11 o'clock. Being president of
the Y. M. C. A. of the state of Texas, and
appearing before an audience so wrapped
up in the Y. M. C. A. and its noble work,
Mr. Wilson decided to speak on the "Bear-
ing of One Another's Burdens," making the
application to the spirit of the Young
Men's Christian association. In brief, he
also gave us some most Interesting and as-
tonishing data concerning this grand or-
ganization. Among the most striking was
the fact that there are now, in the night
schools conducted by the Y. M. C. A. or-
ganizations, more boys and young men
than in the colleges of the United States.
Again he emphasized the fact that the Y.
M. C. A. is not an organization outside of
the church, but inside of the church, for
It is Christian.
ISveryone was highly pleased with Mr.
Wilson and most gratified by his lectures.
We hail the day when he will come to us
Last Sunday the Y. M. C. A. boys con-
ducted a public missionary meeting, with
Mr. P. D. Tucket as leader. The mission-
ary committee secured Dr. L. A. Johnson,
head professor of the department of Eng-
lish and history, to address the meeting.
He presented the "Defects of Modern Mis-
sionary Methods." This most excellent ad-
dress was highly appreciated by all pres-
ent. All those absent missed a fine spirit-

Galveston, Tex., Oct. 12.—This week It
is my great pleasure to occupy a small
space in the columns of the dear old News.

I spent part of my vacation in San An-
tonio, and while there enjoyed a very
pleasant visit to the Ursuline convent. San
Antonio Is a delightfully quaint old city,
with all its historic memories clustering
'round it, like the ivy that clings to the
ruins of Muckross Abbey. With all, I was
glad to get back to my own dear school
and beloved teachers.
To divide our study hours, there is an
hour set apart for recreation, and as we
have such a beautiful, large play-ground
we were anxious to indulge in the ,rfad of
the summer season," that exciting and
invigorating national game—baseball. We
planned to have competitive games with
tho boarders once or twice every month,
but our teachfcrs, thinking it rather mas-
culine for girls, dissuaded us from so
doing, and we have now decided to ar-
range for lawn tennis and target shooting.
Thursday of this week was a day of re-
joicing for the pupils of the boarding
school, as it was the first time they were

while those from various other parts of the
state enjoyed a visit to town and a ride
in the cars around our delightful and at-
tractive beach. All were much pleased and

the usual routine of college work has
transpired at Austin college this week.
The past week closed fhe first month's
work and in all departments the students
were highly creditable and satisfactory,
so if this high standard is maintained
throughout the year there will be a greater
number of students on the honor roll In

There is unusual interest manifested in
the society work, esepecially by the new
students. The weekly meetings are held
on Saturday night In the society halls,
when interesting programmes are listened
to, consisting of orations, declamations, es-
says, readings and debates. All seem to
appreciate the advantage held out to them
by these societies and are trying to make
the best of them.
The different college classes have or-
ganized for the ensuing year with the fol-
lowing presidents: Senior class, Wm. A.
Vinson; junior class, Gates Thomas; so-
phomore class, A. Hardie; freshman class,

A telegram was received from San Anto-
nio to-day announcing the death there of
Mrs. Augustine P. Sinclair, wife of W. R.
Sinclair, the well known newspaper man,
late of Houston, now of San Antonio.
Mrs. Sinclair, who was Miss Evershade,
moved from New Orleans to Houston with
her parents, Captain and Mrs. Charles
Evershade, some seventeen years ago, and
about ten years ago was united In mar-
riage to Mr. Sinclair. A year ago during
the fire which destroyed the St. Joseph's
hospital and almost a whole block, threat-
ening destruction to her home, Mrs. Sin-
clair took a violent cold, which settled on
her lungs, and from which she never re-
covered. Early In July, after having
proved the inefficiency of medical treat-
ment, Mrs. Sinclair was taken by her hus-
band to San Antonio, where it was honed
the climate would give her renewed health.
For a time she seemed to improve, but it
was only seeming, and soon it was seen
that she was gradually growing worse, and
her family and friends w» re prepared for
the end that came yesterday.
Mrs. Sinclair was the mother of four
children, a girl and three boys, who are
left with husband, father, mother, brothers
and sisters to mourn het untimely end.
The remains will be brought to this city
for interment to-morrow.
