Last Saturday was "yellowand white" dayamong the Normalista. Theathletics appeared with immense neck-ties made of the two colors, yellow and white, and numberless young student esses (whew! what a word,) recognized the importance of the occasion by donning tiny rosettes made of the same combination of colors. The day was too cold and windy for right smart work but on the whole the Normal field day was a success. We notice Lon Neat in the city again. He has been traveling with a theatrical company fOr the past year. There was some excitement on the street Saturday owing to a wordy encounter between two of our prominent citizens. One, with his shouting Methodist proclivities, roused the bluePresbyterian blood of the other, and Webster'sunabridged hardly furnished words enough to convey their respective "feelinks" toward each other. No bones broken, however and all is serene now. A very large coagregation assembled at the l'resbyterian church last Sunday to hear Rev. Mr. Morey's dancing sermón. As the reverend gentleman knew nothing about the pastime from experience, he quoted largely from the ideas of promi nent Episcopal, Methodist and Catholic bis hops on the subject. He seems to think, bad not the round dance been introduced, there would probably have been no fault found with the square dances generally. However, as neither the round, square nor any other shaped dance is particularly conducive to the highest Christian Standard, he thought it was decidedly better not to indulge in the popular amusement at all.
