Entertaining Notes Concerning Old OberIin--Letter from an Enthusiastic and Devoted Albert Lea Student. To tht ‘Stum/a/ J: \\ ith your permission, I will endeavor to give your readers a description of one of the laigest and best of American colleges. it is located in Oberlin, Lorain county, ten I lilies below lake Erie, on the Lake Shore & Michigan .Southern radio td. Oberlin has a population of between 5,OGU and ti,OOO, aud no place of its size this Sid** of lilt' Mississippi is better known and. iii my estimation, no place has an equal history. For authority, I reler lo a certain massive monument standing in trout of the .Second church, dedicated to some hundred and fifty volunteers who tell in Ute civil war; and also ask who built that underground railroad, by which fugitive slaves were transported from Kentucky, and why Oberlin was called the mecca of the north. Few people Hie acquainted with what is trailed a topical college town. A low’ll that has its existence tor the school alone, and in which nothing of any importance is carried on except for tile benefit of tile students. Of this Oberlin is a perfect type. Remove the school and yon remove the town. Oberlin has in addition to its college a web equipped system of public schools, and its academy furnishes a strong po-*t graduate or preparatory conine, which may well he termed a stepping stone from school to College. file wonderful church advantages and the harmony between church, school and business is something unrivaled, and would require columns to describe. Attendance at church is. cif course, required and by the providence of the faculty, we have the privilege of hearing a gieat Variety of ministers I rom different parts of the east. In this manner ami in the [’. I,. A. lectures and the usual Thursday lecture, we become acquainted with the sentiments ot the world at huge, scaicelv k “Bill is certainly a large man ) Anton Schott, tenor; .Miss Corinne Moore Lawson, soprano; organists, Frol. G. VV. Andrews, S P. Warren. During the present school year recitals have ber*n given by Prof. G. VV. Andrews, organist; Mrs. Bloomfield, pianist; Herr Andrichek, violinist, and the famous Theodore Thomas orchestra. At Hie commenceiuent exercises last year a chorus of 300 voices, led by FdO* Bice, rendered Mendelssohn* “Elijah.” Many concerts in the past year have been given and soloists from Chicago, New' \ ork, Boston and other prominent musical centers have taken active parts. Student organizations are numerous: Three college debating societies, two academy, two of the seminary and one of the conservatory. PEOPLE’S PARTY WAKES UP.

Among the foreign countries represented were England, Scotland, France.

House. creased, i’eter’s hall, erected at a c«>?>t of about $75,000, the main recitation building of the college department; Warner hall, the conservatory of music, the gift of Dr. Warner of New’ York, costing some $1*30,000; spear library, costing $15,000. The heirs of Charles G. Finney, a former president of Oberlin, propose to erect an $85,000 chapel as a memorial. The present chapel has a seating capacity of 2,000. Other friends have subscribed $50,000 for a science building and $25,000 for a g\ 111-nasium. The funds for these purposes are ready and work will undoubtedly soon begin. In all there are seventeen buildings now occupied by the college; the library, nu rn bering 40,000 volumes and an almost equally large number of pamphlets; there f*re large, well equipped scientific labaratories iii botany and chemistry and physics; the museum of natural history is supplied with some’ of the rarest and best specimens in the ITiited States, a careful and attentive visit to it being equal to a week of book st tidy; geology, archaeology and zoology is Hie ground covered. Boom will not permit me to treat on Oberlin scholarship, but will briefly state that it has alw ays been high and even equal to those of Yale and other colleges of the east. The conservatory ranks as one of the two and three hest music schools in the United .States; the conservatory alone has 30 instructors and there were 720 students enrolled in 1895. The instructors iii the conservatory have, almost without exception, had two or more years musical preparation in Berlin, Paris, Vienna and other places of equal importance. A course of recitals by the hest of artists is given under the direction of the conservatory for the benefit of those who elect music. Last year these recitals brought to Oberlin the following pianists: McDowell, Miss Aus der Che, Sutro sisters, together with some two dozen different violinists and vocalists, whom I am afraid would make a burdensome list and much resemble a bulletin to those who may he disinterested in this style of art; but for those who are interested I will mention several who will he easily recognized as among the hest and who have persevered and spent much time and money to attain the success they have leached. Violinists:    Eugene Ysayo, Caesar Thompson, Godowsky; vocalists: Baritone, Watkin Mills; tenor, W. IL Riege and J. II. McKinley, (not that large “Bill” whom Ohio people are losing their heads over. Gov. McKinley does not sing, he plays, that is, with Ohio folks and shouts and tells them about the “grand old party.” TWO CASS COUNTY BARGAINS.
