hours , the latitude of the gentlemen for walking and other out-door exercises is not restricted , while it is with lad y students. In view of these considerations we think that the young ladies should give more time to gymnasium practice than the young men should. A greater interest has alread y been shown by them than the majority of male students have ever shown , and if this interest can be kept up, good results are sure to follow. Right here we venture to say that in both cases, gymnasium practice for young men and women should be cornuisory. Since we have had the new building and its splendid equi pment of apparatus, no person could but notice ~ he physical development in those who have taken an interest in it. Thi ~ niight be _trut ~ of all our students were they compelled to use the gymnasium regularl y, even though the time so spent should be little, Althoug h we have always appreciated the gymnasium , (for we saw the time _. when we had none ,) yet some _stud ents think th...

military duties. When the cadet realizes that there is more than mere theory in them , he at once becomes interested and attentive. At camp lie is impressedi with the responsibilit y under which lie acts and always brings that impression back with him to college. The private sees that he is of more importance in the corps than lie had thought, and develops a spirit of subordination , which tends very much toward the making up of a first class battalion. The loss to the student in his other studies is small when compared with the vast amount of benefits derived from a week at camp. The experience of former years ought to be satisfactory enough to warrant the Faculty in making it a permanent thing. :_1_: _:_1_: DURING this college year, or rather during the time since it has become too cold to insure comfort without artificial heat , it has been a common occurrence for the students and other persons attending chapel , to find that room very uncomfortabl y cold.

rpHERE is a general rejoicing over _I the manner in which the late In—clian outbreak has been stopped. Onl y two months ago the uprising promised to be one of the greatest that we have had for a long time. Althoug h _iliany brave men have been lost, yet those accustomed to Indian fi ghting say that the losses have been comparativel y small considlering the numbers engaged on both sides. The manner in which General Miles discusses the situation shows that he is not onl y a generous and warm hearte _d man , but the soundness of his views is well borne out by the settlement of hostilities in so short a time. He discusses the question from the stand point of the Indian as well as from the view taken by the whites, giving clue allowance to the ignorance and superstition of the former. He tries to show how little eastern peop le in general regard the _Ind ian as a warrior in these times. He says that the thinl y settled _d istricts give the _m dian a great advantage as a fi ghter , by aff...

is practicall y limited by the number of dormitories available in that end of the main buildin g. One thing is certain : unless the college students can have the whole buildin g to themselves, both college and preparatory departments must work at a ~ _d isadvantage in the near future. T ~ EW persons reall y see the benefits ~ to be derived from a course in agriculture. We even find students in colleges where agriculture is one of the prescribed courses of stud y, very ignorant of the work of an agricultura l course, never having investi gated the matter sufficientl y to become acquainted with it. We hear people say that the proper place to learn far ming is on the farm. So it is; and the proper place to learn any occupation which requires to any extent the skill of the hand , is where that occupation is carried on. _Bu ~ where shall we lo’ok for that instruction which fits a man for the investi gation of the elementary ’ princi ples upon which his occupation is based , in order that...

should not expect agriculture to remain stationary ; we must look for more than the addition of new forms of machinery; we must expect changes to take place from reasons based on chemical anal ysis. Many have been the opportunities for such development throug h the colleges organized to teach agriculture as one of the courses of stud y, together with the experiment stations which have usuall y been connected with such colleges. At present experiment stations are being organized and built all over the country. The demand for educated agricultural men to fill the positions required by these stations is greater than the supply. To-day the graduate in an agricultural course has as good prospects for success professionall y as has any other graduate. It is for him with his knowled ge of chemistry, botany, zoology, mathematics and the many other usefu l studies which he has completed , to point out and have applied those advantages which are at present unknown to the great masses of our f...

was Solomon placed upon the throne ? Sudden calamities teach us to be charitable , as in the case of Johnstown when money came from all parts of the civilized world Want develops the moral powers. Want makes persons more courageous , self-reliant. History furnishes us many examples of great men who came U ~ fr om poverty. Our own Lincoln was of humble birth. School privileges to him were rare ; and at twenty-one years of age he hired out to run rafts for ten dollars a month and board. Want is a teacher. It teaches us to bear misfortunes tinder circumstances which cannot be avoided. It tells us to be steadfast in our undertakings , temperate in our habits. It in-Spires us with sentiments of gratitude toward friends and sympath y for those in distress. Continued prosperity weakens character—makes useless citizens. Reverses to a class known as the aristocratic class are often a blessing ; for then they realize how ungrateful they have been to the poor. The oak which glows in barren soi...

We’ve often seen them coast on sleds And snow- balls try to throw ; But when they had it all arranged To use our "gym " at will , We saw ‘twas true, times had been changed By that "McKinley Bill.

A NATION OF CITIES . A little over one hundred years ago our fore. fathers declared themselves to be a free people. After a long and desperate strugg le against one of the most powerful nations of Europe they became a nation ,—a nation which has extended its borders and grown in population and wealth _un - til to-day it ranks among the greatest nations of the earth. What has caused this phenomenal growth ? Have occult influences been at work ? No _I What then has caused it? Nature out of her boundless store has endowed us with a temperate clim ate ,—vast mineral wealth , —a long line of sea coast with many good harbors ,—a chain of great lakes on our northern border _,—one of the most magnificent river systems in the world ,—almost illimitable forests of the finest timber and an immense area of fertile farming land. Dame Nature hath endowed us with all of these advantages ; yet it seems to me that there is one thing besides, that has had an even greater influence on our national gro...

tion becomes more general (and the day will come when every person in our land will be able to read and write), our morals will be better instead of worse. Educat ion raises the standard of thoug ht to a hi gher level. Public op inion will require a hi gher moral standard. Our papers will not be so largel y filled with accounts of crimes committed. I do not mean to say that crime will vanish altogether ; far from it ; but it will be lesscommon. Looking backward over the progress we have made and peering into the future , it does seem that like "Tile Children of Israel" of old , we are indeed a chosen people. That we have been selected from the nations of earth to demonstrate what a " government of the people , by the people and for the people" may become—a nation of cities and of men in the hi ghest and best sense of the word.

service to such an extent as to utterl y destroy its efficiency ill certain localities. Here are grave questions for courts and leg islatures to settle , and it is a matter of the first importance that they should be settled justl y, Cheap work and poor insulation means danger to pesons and property, and it is evident that electric wires for all _pt ~ r—poses must soon be put under the supervision of competent state or city inspectors. There is now little doubt that li ght in all its manifestations , from the tiny spark of the glow_. worm to the glare of the noon day sun , is an electro magnetic ph enomenon , and the conditions of its prod uction and propagation are receiving careful attention. Recent investi gations have shown that the efficiency of all our methods for the production of li ght is very low. By efficiency we here mean that part of the energ y of the substance _consum ed to produce li ght , which is given back to us in the forces of luminous radiations. These efficien...
