the YQhlnteer h c_1 cQntc tan t of no mean ability. Previous to crossing the ocean , the Thistle had left all the princi pal English yachts astern in trial races and was considered to be, far superior to the Galala , last year ’s contestant for the cup_. Her fall, was great and sudden and enoug h to prove that it will be some years before the America Cup goes to England.. _I_‘XT ~ are glad to note the efforts ~~ made by the Y_.M.C.A. . to widen their circle of influence in this institution. Of all organizations intended for the up building of young men there are none which do it more efficientl y than the Y.M.C .A. Having its groundwork in the teachings of Him who spoke . as never man spake, it moves on unswerving ly in its magnanimous mission of bring ing young men to Christ. The religious work of our college has not been striking ly manifest for some years past , but we feel a revival in the air from the enthusiastic manner in which the members of the Association have begun their ...

not shown that regard for sports they oug ht to, yet we think the boys are more to be blamed titan any one else for the pre sent inactivity. THIS number of the FREE LANCE appears under a partiall y new administration. It is to be hoped that our readers and reviewers will be lenient with us until we have gotten accustomed to the general routine of the work. The enviable reputation built , in so short a time, by the last administration , we shall endeavor to maintain. But this cannot be done sing le-handed., The co-operation of students and faculty is essential , and the hearty support of Alumni and friends very desirable. In this connection let us repeat the injunction of last year : Pay your subscr ij nf ion in advance. The bu siness manager . assures us he would be pleased to be surprised with an occasional V. By that means we would be able to occasionall y illustrate some of the funny scenes which frequentl y occur in and about the "old stone pile. " _iii _‘f’ HE long contemp late...

IT was a pleasing sight to the old students on returning to their alma ma/ er, to see about her so many signs of prosperity. The old building has been much improved in its outward appearance , and the electric spark now courses it way through the halls and rooms on the latest mission assigned it by the genius _‘ of _ntan. The foundations for the new Chemical and Physical Laboratory and the Botanical Conservator y ar e com pleted , and preparations for the erection of the super. ~ tructures are being rapidl y made. The great increase in the number of students is also an auspicious fact. Many of them , too, come front sections (of this State) which have heretofore been inimical to this college, but which have of late shown a more relenting spirit. We feel safe in prop hecying a brilliant future for the P. S. C. The elements of success are now everywhere at work , and we would not be surprised if in no distant day they should so operate on sont e generous man ’s heart as to bl-ing fort...

THE BEAR MEADOWS. . BY PROF. \V. A. _BUCKHOUT , M . S. The "Bear Meadows " is one of the most interesting places in our College neighborhood to any one with a taste for the study of nature. ’ There is nothing speciall y bea ’itiful in it , in fact one ’s first impression is general ly of downri ght disappointment , for the name is ’ suggestive of a good deal , and imag ination _and. all the local traditions lead us to expect something extraordinary. Many turn away disgusted when they find onl y a very common looking swamp, and wonder what possible interest can be found in it , except by the hunter , . who may be rash enough to penetrate its laurel thickets in pursuit of game, or t...

Considering what has been the fate of all accessible woodland in our state we can hardl y suppose that this tract , small as it is,’ can sta n d unchanged much longer . As means of access and facility in handling timber increase , the man of business will appear , and what with " prop " and " pul p" and "box shooks" the trees are likely to disappear as have those of other districts ; and then shorn of one of its chief beauties , swej t by fire , and harassed by spasmodic efforts at _"_reclamation " ~ ve shall scarcel y recogn ,ize our old-time Bear Meadows again. Our onl y hope is in this , that either the evil day may be long deferred , or that a more enli ghtened ~ olicy of land and forest economy may prevail. On this latter suggestion the following seems pertinent. Assuming that the great need of Agricul ture in Pennsy lvania is.not more land but better care and culture of that...

PR OHIBITION. The princi pal arguments with which temper—alice refo rmers are confronted are First. That Prohibition does not l)rohibit . Second. That under a license system the law will have control of the traffic and a great revenue will be derived from rum . Third. "Sumptuary laws ." Never in the world were there three ’ more untenable or absurd positions. Let us proceed to see w hy. First. No Prohibitionist , knowing _ftull y the nature of the subject which he is treating, claims that Prohibition does away entirel y with the use of intoxicants. It would be a falsehood were I to say that in the Prohibition states of Maine , Iowa , and Kansas there is no li quor drunk. But may I inqtuire who are the persons that drink it, Is it the class of old drinkers which enlisted in the army of inebriates long before I’rohi bi tion was establ ished , or is it t he class of young men which are usually enticed into a saloon ? I think the anti-prohibitionists will concede that It _~ S the former...

hands of tyrants they did not estimate the cost. The_. thoug ht of liberty was not connected with the thoug ht of money. The price of liberty was not too hi gh to be purchased , even by blood. A few cents on the pound of tea did not directl y cause so mu ~ h bloodshed. It was a principIe they were fi ghting for. The argument that a system of _liceu ~ se places the business in the hands of respectable men is absurd. There can be no such thing as " respectable ’’ rum sellers, It is true that in many of our cities the proprietors of large hotels are whisk y sellers because they keel) a bar in their place , and it is true that the place is kept quiet and that onl y a certain grade of men are admitted ; but they do more damage to humankind than the smaller groggerics of the city.
