UNIVERSITY OF OREGON.
Courses of Study
To meet the needs of large numbers
of people, both old and young, who
live in remote sections of country or
in places where the schools are not ad
vanced, the University of Oregon hus
made arrangements to conduct a four
years' course of study by correspon
dence. The plan Is to make (his course
entirely free except a small charge
which will cover the actual expenses.
This charge will be in the form of a
small sum for each lesson sent out, It
will uot exceed what is actually paid
out for postage and clerical work in
conducting the course. Students will
be expected to order their text-books
either through local dealers or trom
the Portland book stores. It is hoped
that large numbers of people will avail
themselves of this opportunity to do
intellectual work under competent
guidance. It is also hoped to interest
the press of the state 111 the undertak
ing so that it may become very widely
known. So newspaper can be paid
for publishing tbe announcement of
the course, since it is not a plan for
making money, but it is hoped that a
wide-spread public spirit may be
awakened and that the press will lend
its powerful assistance toward the suc
oess of the work. Tbe course will be
divided Into five departments of study
English literature, ' Latin, history
and civics, mathematics, science. Four
years of work have been planned In
each of these departments, Any per
son may take up one or all of tbe de
partments as be chooses.
The course will be sonductad as fol
lows: Any person who wishes to take
one or more of the studies may send in
his name to the University. of Oregon,
Eugene, Oregon. Tlie words "Exten
sion Department" should he written
on tlie envelope. He should also state
clearly what lines of study he wishes
to take up. Directions will be sent to
him at once for procuring text-books,
and instructions concerning the details
of tbe course.
"Questions will be mailed to students
covering definite portions of the text
books trom time to time as they are
needed. These Bbouid be carefully
answered and the answers mailed to
the Extension Department of the Uni
versity. They will be corrected and
returned, together with a new set of
questions. This is, in brief,, the scheme
of the course. The university has been
carrying on tills work in a limited way
for two years, but it is now hoped to
make it much more extensive and
more generally useful to the people of
the state. The experience of the past,
however, places the extension depart
ment in a position to manage the
practical details of the course accurate
ly and promptly. The only charge
which will be made will be for the lists
of questions and for marking the an
swers which are sent iu. It is thought
that this can lie reduced to ten cents
for each set of questions and ten cents
for examining each set of answers. I
This small fee will probably cover tbe
actual expenses of the course, and
unthing further is desired by the de
partment. It is to be noted that this course Is
open to all persons who desire to en
gage In study. It will cover the ground
of the usual good high school course,
nd tbe questions aud suggestions
which will he sent out may often be
used with profit in reviews and exam
inations in city high schools. No
person should feel that a course of this
kind is a complete substitute for a good
school, but if the school Is uot availa
ble for any reason, then much ad
vancement In sound learning may be
made by taking a correspondence
Full outlines of the ooui'ee will he
seat free upon application.

Tennessee Literary Notes.
BY AN OBSERVANT VOTER.
The literary society was called to

law, who did exceedingly well.
Six new members were admitted, In
creasing the membership to 53.
By unanimous consent a paper will
be prepared and reud next Saturday,
by Miss Stella Fronk, who was ap
pointed by the president as editor, who
also tendered the, posltiou as proof
reader to J. D. Fronk, thinking only
an elderly gentleman eligible to that
position, Miss Annie Blacklaw being
chosen by Miss Fronk as associate ed
itor. The debate was hotly contested on
both sidee, the affirmative winning.
Question, "Complaint for Unjust
Treatment, From the Negro and In
dian." The society enjoyed a visit from a,
delegation of debaters from the Kuox
Butte society last week. The program
of the evening was short but well per
formed, and was closed by au Im
promptu speech by T. P. McKnight,
ou the Cuban trouble, who, in conclu
sion, moved that the president appoint
a committee to draft resolutions, reoog
nizing Cuba as a government and ex
pressing sympathy with them in their
struggle for liberty. Great enthusiasm
followed the motion, which was unani
mously carried, Cuba baa friends in
Tennessee if shr has uot at Washing
ton. The debate of the evening was
discusBed at little length by both sides,
Clyde McKnight, affirmative, win
ninr. During tbe selecting of disput
ants for next' debate, two fines were
levied upon Oscar Davis and J. D.
Frouft, for refusing to obey orders.
We are grieved to anuouuee the
dangerous Illness of ex-Pres. G. C.

hope for their speedy recovery.

An Ugly Cut.
Early Monday rooming H. C. Cotup-
ton, of near this city, commenced to
cut or split some stovewuod. By a miss
lick the leg, on the inside and just
above the aukle, was given a heavy
blow with the edge of the axe, com
pletely severing a portion of the end of
the large bone. The wouud was tem
porarily bound up and Compton
brought to tbe residence of his father,
J. W. Compton of this city. Dr. Prill
was called, aud after the severed piece
of bone was removed, the wound was
properly dressed. The cut is an ex
tremely ugly one and will require Bonte
time to properly Ileal. It is quite likely
a Btill aukle will result from the In

A Lucky Find After Six Years.
R. N. Park, of College Hill, says the .
Eugene Register, was happily sur
prised lust Saturday upon receiving
from the finder a handsome crescent
diamond pin which he lost six years
ago this coming June. .
The pin was found by Jim Day, who
early last week started out from the
Middle Fork of the Siuslaw for the
valley. From the upper Middle Fork .
country to the head of tide is a trull,
called the Middle Fork trail, which is
used frequently by the settlers of that
vicinity, as It shortens the distance
considerably. Mr. Park, six years ago,
came out over the trail, and on this
trip lost the pin in question. It was
crescent shape aud had a cluster of
seven diairouds, of the value of $100.
Notwithstanding that Mr. Park
searched high and low for the pin, he
was in the end compelled to give it up
as gone forever. .
Last week, says the Register, as Jas.
Day was coming over the trail he no
ticed something just ahead of him with
a brilliant sparkle, and so picked it up,
to be agreeably surprised upon seeing
Mr. Park's pin. As soon aa Mr. Day
reached Eugene he hunted up the
owner aud presented it to him. Mr.
Park would not have been more sur
prised if soine one had hit him with a
club, aud in appreciation of the return
of the lost article, he told Mr. Day that
there was a nice 3-year-old cow down
on his Siuslaw ranch, and that upon
his return to just go aud turn her into
his own band.
