The Gies Prizes . The aim of education is not the accumulation of facts , but develop went . To this end our institutions of learning seek to teach men , nol to memorize , but to investigate , to think . It is at the point wheie tin memorizer becomes the investigator that the school-boy expands intc the scholar , and begins to move with free and conscious power . The scholar , it is true , seldom competes for _prices in sc . Nevertheless , some of the noblest discoveries in science have been made in just such competition . There is the same glad sense of strength , the same exciting , exhilarating expenditure of energy in generous intellectual rivalry , that there is in the contests of muscle and skill on the diamond and the gridiron . There is a novelty , too , in forming our own opinions , a joy in getting out of ruts , that shakes up our whole being , acts powerfully upon the will , and reveals unexpected powers . Our own judg 1 _- ments and creations necessarily imbed themselves...

The _Intep-Collegiote Debate . At a recent joint-meeting of the Literary Societies the question of an Inter-Collegiate Debate was very favorably considered , and a committee appointed to endeavor to bring the movement to a successful issue . This committee s first step will be to arrange for an inter-soci-ety debate , and in the meantime , to communicate with some other colleges of good standing concerning the advisability of an annual intercollegiate debate with our institution . This is a move in the right direction and in strict accord with the progressive spirit of the times . Moreover we dare say that if it is carried out , the very perplexing question of how to arouse greater interest in our literary society debates , will be solved ; for the student will have a greater incentive to efforts in this direction . The great value and importance of debate is recognized by all . In fact there is no other form of public speaking which is so calculated to show what there is in a man ....

Alex . Black s Picture Play . Alexander Black s presentation of his picture play , A Capital Courtship , in Brua Chapel last Wednesday evening was a success . This is the least but by no means the most that can be said of it . The production gains much attractiveness from the excellent pictures of our foremost public men , such as President McKinley , ex-President Cleveland , Speaker Reed , Ambassador Pauncefote , and others _. The geneial quality of the pictures reflected upon the canvas indicates that Mr . Black has mastcted the art of photography as well as the ait of selecting the characters best suited to perform the various parts of his play . The audience was beyond the usual size , and judging from the marked attentiveness of every one , and the generous applause , the entertainment was thoroughly enjoyed by alL

WITH the coming of the warm spring weather our campus assumes a beautiful green hue . We take just pride in our campus which is the admiiation of every visitor to the college ; but unfortunately its attractiveness is often greatly lessened by the students themselves , whe carelessly throw out upon it waste paper which the wind scatters in every directton . Now is the time to institute a reform along this line . Let every man consider it his personal duty to see that the beauty ol the campus is preserved . IT will certainly be gratifying to all college men to _Icain that the 99 Spectrum is progressing finely and that the greater part of the book is now in the printers hands . The staff have worked industriously and have tried in every way to put forth an annual which shall be worthy of Gettysburg . Indeed we are sure that the 99 Spectrum will not only equal 98 _ s excellent annual but that it will surpass it , not with any discredit to 98 , far fiom it , but from the _spiiit of pi og...

The fAeveuvy for April . We have examined an advance copy of the Mercury as it will appear in its new form ; and can say that the new management deserve the highest commendation for the excellent changes which they have made in the monthly .

Sons of _Hefeules . The Annual Indoor Exhibition was given in the College Gymnasium , on the evening of March the 19 th , by the Sons of Hercules . This band of young men , seventeen in number , need post no signs to the effect that they have spent long months in hard work and training in the Gym ., for their well tounded and muscular forms are ample evidences of this fact . The largest audience which has favored our exhibitions for some time , viewed the sports and seemed to thoroughly enjoy the same . The four or five rows of chairs which completely encircled the central portion of the Gymnasium , and also those provided in the running track above , were very well filled , and an additional source of encouragement to the Sons !! was that those present showed them by their frequent and hearty applause that their efforts were appreciated . Under the efficient direction of Krafft , 98 , the Team went through many drills , formations and specialties , the performance of which not only...
