SOME people are careful. There is a lady in New York who is so careful of her health, that she has all her photographs vaccinated, before they come home from the photographer's. MR. ASHMORE, at the request of the President, has admitted a young lady to the volunteer Latin class. The seniors and juniors have the same addition, to their regular number, at Prof. O. N. Rood's lectures. A FRESHMAN went in to get shaved, the other day; but when the barber asked him for a map of his face, so that he could find the hairs, he suddenly remembered that " the party wasn't until to-morrow night, anyhow," and left. TUTOR: " Mr. 8., will you define latent power?" Mr. P.: "It is an immense amount of force lurking in an apparently powerless object." Tutor: "Can you give an example?" Mr. B. : "A hornet's n...

School of Mines Notes [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 25 February 1881
School of Mines Notes f~\VER twenty first year men got zero for their term marks, in drawing. E. HASTINGS, we are sorry to say, has left the Mines; he was in 'B3; so "was" Meeks. J UDGING from the examinations, it seems barely possible that one or two vacancies may occur in 'B4 before graduation. SOME fellows, who are just beginning to study Calculus, think that "big D" better expresses differentiation than "little d." 'B3 is in earnest about a "Mines" cap; a special meeting was held, and a committee appointed to select appropriate designs. Other classes promise their support. As thirty-one men in 'B4 were deficient at the semi-annuals Mr. Goodwin has kindly offered to give two extra hours a week to explain the Mathematics, provided fifteen men would agree to attend regularly. EIGHTY-FOUR held a class-meeting February 16th, and W. R. Griffith was elected Secretary ? in place of W. B. Peet, who has left the Mines. A committee of three was appointed to confer with 'B3 on the subject o...
The College World [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 25 February 1881
The College World CORNELL. — The students are being canvassed to determine, if possible, the cause of the decrease in numbers in the University. A new one and five-sixteenths mile course has been surveyed on the ice, so that accurate time can be obtained in the spring. The most recent lectures, in the English Lit. course, have been on Sheridan. The critical treatment of " The Rivals " was fully appreciated. The standard in oratory is very low and greatly inferior to that which has been attained in other branches. HARVARD. — The freshman crew rows at present as follows: Mumford, bow; Howe, 2; Bliss, 3; Lemoyne, 4; Bryant, 5; Goodwin 6; Perkins, 7; Clark, stroke. Professor Francis J. Child is preparing a collection of Irish ballads. Any person desirous of helping him is requested to obtain literally, from persons of Irish birth, ballads that have been passed down from mouth to mouth, none learnt from books being desired. The Harvard Register for February contains a complete reprint of...
Personal Column. [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 25 February 1881
Personal Column. A LUMNI are cordially urged to send us facts concerning themselves and fellow-alumni. '3B. W. R. TRAVERS was the subject of an extremely badly-drawn cartoon in The Horn-, of February sth. A short sketch of his life accompanied the "masterpiece." '6B. ARCHIBALD MCMARTIN has enlarged the scope of the Musical Review , which he and Gustav Kobbe, '77, founded fifteen months ago. An art department has been added, and the name of the paper changed to The Studio and Musical Review. Mr. Kobbe retired some time ago, and Mr. McMartin has shown great energy in making his paper the success it now is. '7l. J. BRANDER MATTHEWS is the author of "Foreign Actors in America," published in the Midwinter (February) Sci'ibner s. By some ludicrous mistake, his name appears in the Delta Psi list of this year's Colu?nbiad. '73. G. M. SPEIR, Jr., was present at the Senior Promenade. If all our alumni would thus encourage our entertainments, not by their money, but by their presence, success ...
Shavings [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Daily Spectator — 25 February 1881
Shavings r I "HE train had run into a snow-drift, and the engine was butting its head in vain against a six-foot bank. "For once, the iron horse appears to be beaten," remarked a fat woman near the centre of the car. "You shouldn't call it an 'iron horse,'" mildly reproved a solemn-faced man across the aisle. "Why not?" asked the fat woman, in some surprise. " Because it's block tin," softly murmured the solemn-faced man, and a far-away look settled in his eyes as he gazed out of the window and across the wintry waste. — Burlington Hawkeye. A NUMBER of the juniors righteously refuse to continue the translation of Cicero's Letters, on the ground that it is a breach of honor to pry into anybody's private correspondence. — Free Press. N. B. Translations of Cicero's Letters are very hard to find. DR. MCCOSH keeps a strict watch on the students, vide the following from the Princetonian : If you wish to take a skate, Notify the Registrar. If you've been out after eight, Notify the Registr...
