John W. Maller, law '80, has opened a law office at Devil's Lake, Dakota. W alter S. Harsha of '71, Clerk of the United States Court at Detroit was in the city on Wednesday. With great regret we learn of the death of Frank W. Davenport, a prominent member of the ├╝terary class of '82. Ben Brodie and Fred Whiting of '82 and C. T.

The reserved seat boards for the entertainnients of the Students' Lecture Association this year will be placed at Geo. Osins & Co. 's bookstore, on Main street, and at Geo. Moore's store, on State street. Reserved seats for Senator Voorhees' lecturecan be secured at these places after Wednesday moraioft Oct. 24, at 7:30. When the Chronicle appeared Tuesday afternoon it had in store for its readers a genuine surprise. Instead of the former corer fllled with advertisements it had a handsome lithographed one printed in the college colors- blue and maize. The centre had a large view of Uniyersity Hall, and below were the various college buildings placed in the order of thelr establishment. The ads. are gotten up with artistic taste, and the wliole appearance of this initial number denotes its excellent management and a good board of editors. The annual announcement of the Students Lecture Association for 1883-84 will be issued f rom the Courier office to-day. This year's Board has made several changes, which will be hailed with delight by the student community. The abominable couplet system has been abandoned, and for the first time in years the regular course contains none of the second-rate concerts that have lowered the standard of the courses offered of late. Tlie number of regular entertainments has wisely been reduced to six, and comprises the following excellent attractions: Senator Voorhees, of Indiana; Matthew Arnold, the eminent English essayist and critic; Hon. Emory A. Storrs, of Chicago; Prof. Moses Coit Tyler, of Coruell University; Hon, Henry Watterson, editor of the Louisville Courier-Journal ; and the Rev. T. DeWitt Talraadge, of Brooklyn. But two extras will be given and they are of a high order: The Emma Thursby Grand Concert Company and the Minnie I Luik Grand Operatic Concert Corapany.
