What we want to do, is—like the seal—break the ice as it freezes ; and we shall always have a breathing hole ; let us ever have worldl y and spiritual matters walk hand in hand , J. Q_. C. HINTS ON PUBLIC SPEAKING. Every man in America has plenty of opportuni . ties to make his influence felt as a public speaker. The ri ght of free speech is one of the most precious assurances of our constitution. Modern historians of America , particularl y Geo. Bancroft ’s young disci ples at Baltimore , have assigned much of the freedom of thou g ht and word which di gnified the generati on of Samuel Adams , to the New Eng land town meetin g ; and in that meeting and its Saxon predecessors have been found the germs of many of our institutions , The genius of our government to-day—fortunate for its own best _intere sts— en courages public speaking. I think Prof. Bryce in his "American Commonwealth’’ remarks on the aptitud e with which citizens of the U. S. organize themselves into a deliberative b...

"Per aspera ad astra perfection is made tip of trifles we know. Dernosthenes spouted Homer with pebbles in his mouth, Lord Beaconsfield failed in his maiden effort before the house of commons and Henry Clay studied the art of elocution incessantl y.

HALL AND CAMPUS. He sat on the radiator and while he slowly al lowed the cigarette fumes to pour into wreathlike rings as they left his mouth , he was continuall y casting furtive glances tip and down the hallway as if he feared the appearance of some one. To the lounger or to those who were standing close by he made this remark : "I’ ll tell you , boys, I think it ’s an imposition on good nature to make us stay here in this musty old place and grind until far into the middle of the summer, when every other college has closed weeks before. " Several bystanders assented to this remar k and one suggested "We ought to get up a remonstrance and send it in—"To the waste basket," remarked another, "Supposing the term did close two or three weeks earlier , what would you gain by it ?" asked a practical looking fellow who had been standing near , lisening to the conversation. "What would we gain by it? Well that ’s rich _I_" rejoined the cigarette smoker. "Wh y we would get out that much ea...

to grapple with all the questions eliciting careful and studied thought. We can to-day give many examples of the actthaj achievements of women, which can be placed side by side with the same work done by man. Among these we have Miss Martinean in History, Philosophy and Theology. Mary Somerville , Caroline Herschell and Maria Mitchell in Science ; of George Elliot and Mrs. Stowe in fiction ; of Mrs. Fawcett in Political Economy ; Mar y Lyon and Miss Willard in Education and hosts of others who have done actual work and ask onl y the recognition which such work would receive if performed by man. To refer to what woman does as being extraordinary and worth y of special praise is not her de sire. She asks only for her work to be judged simply and quietly on its own merits, without reference to the fact of its being done by man or woman. Only in this way can women learn how to excel in what they _thndertake ; if credit be given her simply because she is a woman it takes away the incenti...

The waffle supper held for tile benefit of the Methodist Episcopal church was very generall y pat ronized by til e student s and was a decided success. A nu mber of ou r Professors were relieved of the surp lus provisions they had stored in their cellars during vacation, We fear that some of the students are sadder , though wiser , from the effects of some of the liquids discovered. It is to be hoped that the students will keep up their training in the different s fields , during the spring term , so thatwhen the Second Annual Field Day is held the college records will l)e broken in every branch. The sub-committee on Ap propr iat ions from th e House of Representatives, visited the College on Monday, April _i3th , and made a somewhat hurried thoug h complete investi gatio n of the workings of the institution.

Ma _Enmioa I would like to call the attention of til e college authorities to tile extremlle danger of cutting off the supply of water from tile main building at ni ght and leaving it off until morning , Because tile building was once sli ghtl y flooded , on account of some one carelessly leaving the water turned on, does not seem a very plausible reason for shutting off our only hope of safety. ill case of fire.

leading colleges in the country. The College Alan should be in the hands of every college student , and we can make no better comment than to say it is just what it claims to be , "The organ of no sing le college , but aims to be the exponent of all. " The C_’ ollege Sludeni is a well edited journal and its last edition was no exception to the rule. But it seems to us that they in their March issue, have devoted a good share of their editorial departmont to upbra iding the new Franklin and Mir—shall _, Weekly (Weakl y) as they characterize it. We do not see the force of their appeal to the ficulty to suppress it , and if it is, as the Student alleges, a paper started as "a pirate adventure and a pirate _speculation ," and ill no way sanctioned by the bod y of students , then why not let it die a natural d ~ atli and not force it to all ignominio n s death by being squelched by the faculty.
