THE RECEPTIOi? COMMITTEE.
To the alert young ladies and gentlemen
Of the Senior class of '90 was intrusted the
pleasant duty of receiving the visitors and
introducing them to the faculty and trus
tees. Their thorough ease and self-possession
left nothing to be desired in the performance
, or their duties. The visitor was made to
feel thoronehlv at home by the time the line
of the received had been passed. It was a
very pleasant gauntlet, and the visitors felt
under obligations to the bright young ladies
. The names of the reception committee
Srere as follows: Miss Jean Boobyer, Miss
Slay Lacock, Miss Clara Smith, , Miss
Hettie Schultz, Miss Alma Shafer, Miss

bell, Mr. William Blair, Mr. Patterson and
IX A SOCIAL "WAT.
Passing beyond the reception hall the way
led through the offices into the College Hall,
which was handsomely decorated with flags,
evergreens, potted plants, flowers and young
ladies. Though last the latter were far from
leist, and they were surrounded by plenty
of young gentlemen, the whole assemblage
being in lull evening costume. Upon the
stage was the lull orchestra of Toerge Bros.,
and very excellent music was discoursed
during the entire evening. The orchestra
was almost concealed by a mass of flowers
and ferns. The floor was free from encum
brances and waxed for obvions purposes.
After the grand march had been prome
naded by over 200 couples headed by the
Faculty of the TJniversitv and the Board of
Trustees, a semi-humorous 'address was de
livered by Prof. Sadler, of Baltimore. Md.,
fcad of the famous Bryant and Stratton sys
. tern of commercial colleges, in which the
gentleman, who is a ready and apt .speaker,
nlsrged tipon the..fsct that.merchants .now
adays were apt to ask an applicant for a po-
trition for his credentials from business
college just in the same breath as for his
. moral fitness. The old scheme of the raw
country lad dropping into a big counting
room and getting the fat of the land
on account of a pair of bare feet, a rural
Etamm..- and a bright face didn't go now
adays. In fact, the speaker believed that it
bad always been a little commercial fic
tion. Men got positions nowadays by show
ing that a gbod business education was
and must be a fact capable of demonstra
tion. He thought that commercial educa
tion was really the mainspring of success for
eithe young men or women, especially since
women were so rapidly taking a prominent
place in the commercial world. Prof, Sadler
'was heartily applauded when his brief' ad
dress was concluded.
IN A MUSICAL WAV.
Several capital songs were sung by Prof.
Eerriot, ot Chicago, a well-known vocalist
ot the AVindy City. His accompaniments
were played by Prof. Simeon Bissell. Music
by Toeree's filled out the evening very
pleasantly. At the beginning of the exer
cises a brief and pleasantly-worded address
of welcome was made by Prof. J. C. "Will
iams, President of the University.
The arrangements were most admirably
made and throughout the evening there was
so confusion nor crowding, although the
capacity of the roojn was taxed to the full
est extent It was the plcisantest annual
reception in the history of the university.

The Safest Shopping Street In Pittsbnrg.
Very recently an element of danger has
been added to shopping in Pittsburg.and
those who are thoughtlnl of their wives,
mothers, sisters and daughters have looked
with some alarm to the increasing number
of cable cars in the already crowded and
narrow streets of Pittsburg. There is one
street, however, that is not troubled in this
respect, and every day it is becoming more
popular as a shopping thoroughfare. We
mean Smithfield street. To those of our read
ers who have fractious or lively horses we
commend this precaution as wise and nec
essary. Among the jewelers the most cen
trally located to be reached from all points
is Hardy & Hayes', at S29 Smithfield street.
To the residents of Allegheny, the most di
rect route is to drive via the Suspension or
Seventh street bridges and then directly up
Virgin alley. This gives a direct and en
tirely safe drive and brings one within two
doors of the store. Their stock is complete in
every particular and we have heard many
friends say the stock they carry is one of the
most diversified in the city. In novelties for
men all sav thev have the largest line in the
city. They have lust opened a large, new as
sortment received for late buyers. By call
ing.you will be satisfied at Hardy & Hayes,
Jewelers, 529 SmithBeld street. They are
open every evening.
Big Crowds After the Daisy.
Yesterday was the first day we placed our
Daisy overcoats on sale at $X0. They caught
on at once. Thousands of people came to
see what we meant by a Daisy. Not one
left without purchasing one of these excel
lent overcoats. They sold at sight The
Daisy is an all-wool small-ribbed cassimere
overcoat in three shades blacfc blue and
brown silk-faceh or plain, silk sleeve
lining, with cloth or silk velvet collar and
richly lined throughout. Merchant tailors
would charge $2S to $35 for the same coats.
Our price for the Daisy is $10 to-dav.
