The Students' Lecture Awiociatlou liave Just given 
to tbe public a lint of tli« enlertaluincnta whicb tliey 
will preeeut during tbe coming seaROu. Quite a change 
iti noticed In tbe form of tbeir anuounceineut. They 
bave laid aelde tbe old time-lioiiored red card, and sub- 
stituted In ItD place one tliat resembles a nieuu card or a 
programme for a hop. Tbis, of course, renders it much 
more attractive to tbe majority of the atudeuts. In 
IgiiklDg over the list of entertainments, we notice that 
they ofTer uh only three lectures. That an aasoclntlon 
calling themselves a lecture association should, In a 
course of eleven entertainments, otter but three lectures 
Is something strauge, and we might say a little Incon- 
Blsteut. However tbIs may be, the Board ought to be 
o -ugratulated on the excellent course of amuBements 
which they otter t-o the students and tbe Ann Arbor 
public. First on tbe Hat, we see the Litta Grand Con- 
cert Company. Their programme will coudtst of a con- 
cert and the fourth act of " II Trovatore." One week 
aPer this concert, Mr. A. P. Burbank, the renowned 
elocutionist and Impersonator, will appear. At the Arat 
extra, we notice the namo of the " Kellosg Concert 
Company." Tbe iiames of Kellogg, Brignoll and 
Adamowski speak for themselves, and It will require no 
further Inducement to brine all true lovers of music to 
this concert. In December we will bave an opportu- 
nity of hearing Annie Louise Gary, together with tbe 
Boston Temple Quartette. Every one who has beard 
MlsB Gary's sweet contralto, will be only too glad to ac- 
cept another opportunity of Itciteulng to it. It is witb 
ettpecial pleasure that we see that the Bnaril has secured 
President James B. Angell as one of tbe lectu'iere. It 
will atTord us an excellent opportunity of once more 
hearing our President, and that, too, so soon after his 

return. The entertainment In University Hall will 
close with the Arbuckle Concert; but the Association 
also promises us an additional entertainment in tbe 
Opera House. Thus it will be seen, that this winter we 
shall have opportunities for bearing some of the best 
concerts that can be offered loan American audience, at 
a merely nominal coat. The course will, aa heretofore, 
be conducted in coupleta. The three entertainmenta, 
marked on this card as extras, will not be coupled with 
any others. Tickets for these concerts will be sold at an 
advanced rate over tbe regular mies. The Association 
will again support the Library reading-rooms. They 
wilt also turn over tbelr profits to tbe gymnasium fund. 
With all these lnducements,thestudents ought to make 
tbis course a successful one, and thus help to build up 
our gymnasium fund. 

Among tbe many good things promised us this sea- 
son by the Lecture Association, one of the best is the 
privilege of reserving seats for the unusually excellent 
list of entertainments which they offer. To those of us 
who, for the sake of procuring a good position, have 
gone Immediately after aupper and submitted to four 
hours' torture on the hard seats of University Hall, this 
prospect Is especially pleasing. The Lecture Board 
have made arrangemeiite for the numbering of all seats 
in the ball, and have been particularly careful to avoid 
crowding, having allowed twenty-four Inches for each 
seaL Seats may be reserved for all the regular enter- 
tainments without extra charge. Tbe system of reserv- 
ing seats may need a few words of explanation. Ad- 
mission tickets of tbe usual form will be sold by tbe 
committeemen to students, and by Brown, tbe Main 
street druggist, and Moore on State street, to citizens. 
At these two places plans of tbe ball will be kept, and 
seots may be reserved on presentation of the admission 
tickets. These tickets will be punched and reserved 
seat tickets Issued, which are to be presented to the 
usher, and not to the doorkeeper, as they will not secure 
admission. In case of season tickets, whicli may be 
punched ahead, the numbers used will be punched 
when reserved seat checks are Issued, and these checks 

The Chronicle. 

must be presented with the ticket at the door, where the 
ticket will again be punched and returned with the 
checks. For the leadiug entertalnmenta a plan of the 
hall will also be kept at Ypeilaiiti. It will be seen that 
the new board have spared neither trouble nor expense 
to contribute to the couiTort and convenience at tbelr 
patrons, as well aa to rumlah them with good entertalo- 
iiientfl. Aa a result of this commendable enterprise we 
prophecy tlie most prosperous jear the asBOciation has 
had for a long time. 

See bow the dear creatures swarm to our fold ! Co- 
education Is no longer to be questioned as to Its success, 
at least In point of numben; though one sometimes 
has misgivings of the propriety of the thing, when he 
notices that certain Instructors take evident delight in 
calling on the young ladies for translation of the pas- 
sages tbat should be expunged from an edition of class- 
ics Intended for iiseln mixed classes. The purging sys- 
tem, however, would considerably emaciate some of the 
authors used In our University. But in spite of this, in 
spite of the fact tbat their being here imposes upon 
them that synonym of Ignominy, " Coed.," tliey come 
In denser flocks. The present state of increase warrants 
us in looking with prophetic eye to the time when this 
glorious Institution shall degenerate Into a female semi- 
nary, and the few pantaiooned bipeds left will be looked 
upon with disdain as they tread their way down the 
hall gingerly among the trails. To such a pitch of pop- 
ularity this mode of education has come since Its recent 
introduction. The question whether we shall have co- 
education or not, Is settled ; but a few reflections on its 
possible tendencies ought not to be out of place. Co- 
education tops tbe climax of a bust of Infringements 
that females have made upon exclusively masculine 
rights. Woman's riglits, co education, woman's license 
to enter upon professional and business careers, all have 
their basis In the peniictous, miscbivnus, baneful, nox- 
ious notlou of tbe equality of tbe sexes. If not co-edu- 
cation IteeifiitlsatleasttbiBldeu on which It is founded 
that gives rise to these nIght-mare thoughts. Some say 
tbat it is certainly a sign of a high degree of civilization 
when woman are released from a state almost of serfdom 
and allowed to compete with men In every field, except 
the political, and this they expect soon to enter ; when 
they are freed from tbe barbarous customs of pagans 
and given more privileges than St. Paul allots to tbem. 
But In Qreeoe, whose culture has ever k^een praised, the 
women had a very subordinate position, and none but 
the HeUnne were iilghly educated and mingled with the 
men as comiHinlons in their talks and disputations. 
Compare the state of society now with that of tbe time 
when o&ej/ was still In tbe hymeneal oath. Then tbe 
husband was lord and master ; now, as a rule, he bae to 
submit to being hen-pecked, or seek a more congenial 
clime. That Is the proper tbittg, the ladies might tliluk ; 

but it Is u fact tbat when the wife Is submerged In tho 
husband, wheu she Is of the clluging, confldlng kind, 
the home is freer from bickeriugs. Inconstancy, and 
sut>sequeut divorces are less frequent than when tbe 
conjugal relationship Is tbat of equal companions. The 
English are examples of the former, and where are 
purer homes? The French of the tatter, and wbere Is 
looser living? These women have insidiously coaxed 
from us privileges and prerogatives peculiar to the 
"lords of creation," till tbey have attained to snch a 
height of power tbat we can liardiy exclude tbem ^m 
political equality with us. How the Fathers of the 
Chnrtih would liave opened their eyej could they ob- 
serve the way wives now obey their husbands, as they 
enjoined ! Sliaile of St. Paul ! we must have reform. 
If things keep on as tbey have been going, the dear 
creatures will soon appropriate to tliemselves the ps<)a- 
gogic foreuslc, medical, mercantile, lecture and tonsorial 
fields, while tbe men will wash tbe dishes, as In ti.e 
Utopian "Mauinee" of tbe song. Judging from their 
natural proclivities, tbey will succeed best In the two 
last mentioned departments. They would be elegant 
tonsotial artists, not only on account of the delicacy of 
their touch, but also by reason of the gllbuess of tbelr 
tongues. Yebarbered men, do you understMtd? Their 
qualifications for lecturing are Indisputable. They have 
sustained auf Irreproachable reputation from time Imme- 
morial— as curtain— lecturers. It will require only tlie 
incenUve of having a husband and children at home to 
provide for, to induce tliem to appear in public. Not 
long since I met a prototype couple of tbla coming age. 
He Inok Id tickets at the door and tended the baby, 
while she lectured. It Is said that some" co ed^" refuse 
to put tbelr snowy necks into the matrimonial noose on 
the ground that two cannot become one — tiiey have 
studied higher mathematics. But others get around tills 
objection by means of sophlstiCHl syllogisms— tbey have 
Btudltxl logic But conceding in their own minds that 
two can be made one, tbey determine to be that one— 
tliey have studied Diplomacy and the Artof Qovera- 

nient. There hved in a young man of strong 

build and strongor will, a regular Achltles. " Implger, 
iracundas, inexorabills, acer," who used to say, when 
be saw some beitedlct led around by tbe nose, "Just 
wait till I am married and /^U show you what Is what;" 
then his hair would bristle, and his eyes would snap, 
and a contemptuous snort would burst from his sneer- 
ing lips. In a year he had wooed and wedded a little, 
meek-eyed, soft-voiced maiden with . lesthetlc eye- 
glasses. That was two years ago. Now when he oflbrs 
a timid suggestion that he would like to be excused 
from doing this or that. Immediately, a reproachful 
" William," uttered in tbe softly modulated voice tbat 
won his love, sends him off post haste. In short, fas Is 
tbe worst hen-pecked (best trained, the ladies call it,)

to MDd her their liusbaatla fnr » course of training. The 
afor«8fttd William had i^ntteu linldor»cataniHriii],wboiii 
it was folly to resist; but others have tulcen to them- 
Helvea partuers of a lew tyraniilBliig sort,— self -willed 
enough not to submit to proper discipline, aud not 
shrewish enough completely to oow thelrlonls. Neither 
will submit. The consequence of such mie-altlauces 
generally Is a separation. In a certain eounty in Indi- 
ana there are as many cases of divorce on the bar docket 
as there liave been applications for marriage licenses 
during the past year. Of a dozen cases that I inquired 
Into, the invariable cause was the woman's Insubordlna- 
tion. Some bad refused to take In washing to support 
their husbands, others had objected to being beaten for 
their lord's amusemeat, etc. Not all of these women 
had been educated In co-ed ucallonal Institutions, but 
they might Just as well have been ; for somewhere they 
had imbil>ed the pernicious doctrines of the equality of 
the sexes, aud consequent opposition to orthodox sub- 
mlssiveness. When we think whither we are drifting, 
chilis of horror agitate our spine. Fellow-masculines, 
are we arrant cowards, that we sit idle and let the petti- 
coat tribe take our immunities from our enervated grasp? 
Shall we sell our birch-righta for the smiled and bland- 
Ishmenta of Hlrens 7 Once they came at the beck and 
call of our progenitors, were delighted to do their me- 
nial service, smiled at blows, and were honored by curs- 
ings and revillngs. Let us bear in mind not to disgrace 
our ancestry. Resist their whedllngs and codlings and 
billings and oooings and pattlngs on the cheek. Rather 
than succumb, let us hie to some sequestered spot 
where, at least, we shall be masters of all we survey, or 
migrate to eome barbarian land, where, perchance some 
untutored Hottentot maiden shall yield us the homage 
that befits the " little tin Ood" that we are. Or, stay 
and be hen-peaked ; for that Is the teudency of oo-etlu- 

In this number we would like to call the attention 
of our readers to a fact that has been brought to our 
notice during the past few weekswhilesollcittitig adver- 
tisements for the present year. Business men have 
almost Invariably asked : " What good will an advertise- 
ment in your paper do?" They claim that It makes but 
little difference with their trade, whether they adver- 
tise In the college papers. Now we would like to make 
this request of the students, that so far as possible, they 
will patronize those firms that have manifested, by 
tiielr advertisements in the college papers, their Interest 
In the college press. The success of our college papers 
depends in a great measure upon the liberal patronage 
of the business men of this and neighboring cities, and 
in order to secure this patronage the students must 
give their trade to those firms that aid us, in preference 
to all others. In our columns and In those of other 
college papers will be found the names of some of the 

best firms In the city, where the best goods can be 
bought as cheap as elsewhere, and we therefore feel at 
liberty to say that the students owe it to our college 
press to trade only with those flrbis that advertise. 
There are some business men who, thinking they have 
the monopoly of students' trade, refuse to advertise, 
and thus refuse to aid us In our enterprises. Now if the 
students will tradeouly with tlioee that advertise, we can 
soon show the others that they cannot hold the stu- 
dents' trade without giving something lu return. It Is 
not our Intention in this article to ask the students to 
patroQlEC only those that advertise in our columns, but 
with those that advertise in the columns of any one of 
our college papers. The eastern college press annually 
makes this request, and we earnestly hope that the 
students of the University of Michigan will not fall be- 
hind those of eastern colleges In their response to this 

Within the last two weeks two hundred innocent 
freshmen have been confided, by anxious mothers, to 
£he loving care of our Alma Mater. The class of 'S5 
has made its appearance on the stag% of university life. 
Every member of the class is, of course, a " star," our 
amiable president ofBclating as manager, while the rest 
of the faculty are merely "supes." Judging from the 
debut, the career of these new stars will be very success- 
ful. Notwithstanding the fact that In their first meet- 
ing they exhibited all that childlike playfulness so char- 
acteristic of C^«shmen, there is evidently better material 
In the class than in either of the two preceding classes. 
Though few Id number, they make pp In quality what 
they lack In quantity. It is a noticeable fact that since 
the inauguration of the new r^^lme there has been 
an improvement In the character of our students. A 
more manly and earnest class of students has entered 
the University. There Is less of that rough boyishness 
BO noticeable iu former years, and more of the manly, 
scholarly spirit among our students than heretofore. 
It seems as though the intellectual atmosphere of our 
University i)ad undergone a radical change. It seems 
as though it bad become permeated with the scholarly 
element, enhancing the vigor of the Intellectual life. 
It Is the duty of the members of the chtes of '8S to cul- 
tivate and help perpetuate the spirit of scholarship 
growing up among the students. If we are not mis- 
taken In our estimate of them, they will do this. The 
future wi.l tell the story. In the meantime we oordi- 
dlally extend to them the right hand of fellowship and 
wish them " Ood speed." 

The present Board of Editors have been able, with 
the assistance of the Board of '81, to make many Im- 
provements in the appearance of The Chronicle. In 
this Issue wepresentthemtoourreaders. Wehoi>etbat 
they will meet with the approval of the students, but 
this time alone will tell. - _, - . - - -,-,--

More acrid and »liarp tbun a patent pepper pickle; 
But yet at the altar, you bet I'll be lliar'. 


Id the flame play Id which Shakespeare has 
tnanter miod shown us the greatest mfflan tyrant of 
civilised history, he presents to our eyes the portrait of 
a woman, who of all his characters appears " the queen 
of earthly queens," A woman, " pacific, domestic, un- 
pretending, of disposition gentle, and of wisdom o'er- 
topplng womao's power,"— Catharine of Aragon, wife 
of Henry the Eighth. 

Catharine derived from nature neither strilclng ad- 
vantages of person, nor dazzling qualities of mind. 
FroDi her mother, Queen Isabella, she iuherited a tinc- 
ture of haughttuess and obstinacy of temper, without 
the brllllaut talents which the queeu possessed. But 

her education under this talented mother Implanted in 
her the moat austere principles of virtue, and the most 
bigoted attachment to religion. Her understanding 
strong, her judgment clear, and tlie impulses of 
lier heart kiadly and benevolent. 

Her history in brief is this: United at the age of 
twenty-four to Henry the Elglith, for eighteen happy 
years she sliared the throne with him. But Anally, in 
le of those Insane freaks so common to his cliaracter, 
he disowned lier, secured a divorce, and with It (lie 
wreck of Catharine's life. 

In his play of Henry the Eighth, Shakespeare has 
ren us, with truth, the character of this noble woni- 
. And It is tills adherence to truth In portraying the 
life of this patient and Haintly queen, which makes 
this, tiie last product of the poet's genius, so full of 
beauty aud genuine interest. Although in tills master- 
piece of Shakespeare's mind we see characters so noble, 
grand, ambitious,— Buckingham In the " full blown 
pride of rank and talents," the over-great Cardinal, 
" who In the plenitude of inward forces " cut his way 
upward, through everything that opposed iilm,— allil 
the crowning glory of the play, the master character, 
is that of the noble, austere, yet gentle Catharine, who. 
In her love and devotion to the man tiiat cauaed her 
rulu and destroyed her happiness, towers above Crom- 
well, Wolsey, and Buckingham, a queen, a heroine, a 

The poet first introduces her to us. a suppliant, 
showing her sympathetic nature and open charity for 
all, praying to the king In behalf of England's people. 
Her influence over the tyrant is exhibited by hie ready 
to her petition. 

k Is given 1 

Had Henry died while Catharine was yet his wife, 
and Wolsey bis miulster. It has been said, and said 
with truth, he would have left behind him the charac- 
ter of a magnificent, popular and accomplished prince, 
Instead of the moat hateful tyrant of England'a his- 

The {Character of Catharine when analyzed la dlatln- 
guished for its truth ; not truth as to hlatorlcal details, 
but truth of cliaracter OS a quality of soul. This Innate 
truth of character enabled her to detect falsehood and 
duplicity Id others. And when at her trial, it was this 
power of Intuitively detecting the false which caused 
her to see through the blandishments and flattery of 
Wolsey, and leads her lo say : 
" My lord, my lord, 
I am a simple woman, much too weak 

Tooppose your cunning. Varenieehand huroble-rooutbed ; 
You Bign your place and calllni In full Eeeming, 
With meekneaa and hnmlllty ; but jour heart 
Is crammed with arroguncy, spleen, and pride. - -- - 

The Chronicle. 

Induced bj potent clrcnniBinDaea, that 

You ars mlue eoemr Bnil make my cballenge ; 

You ihall not be my JiiilKe," 

From the flrat she saw clearly the result of lier trial. 
She kaew the illvorce was a predetermined thing in 
the king's mind, knew the reason fnr it, saw that the 
trial was not one for Justice, but was only prompted by 
tlie desire for dlsoovering arguments which ahall give 
the final action some shadow of excuse. And knowing 
all this, with quick intuitloD she recognlises that all de- 
pends on her being true to herself; and the geqtle, 
modest wisdom with which she sohoois herself to meet 
the crisis Is worth a thousand fold more than any de- 
fense that any learning. Ingenuity, or eloquence could 
frame In her behalf. 

Throughout the trial there is in her bearing that 
which draws us to her. She shows that she completely 
penetrates her husband's designs, but with true wifely 
devotion she never betrays him. Her patience and 
purity even Impress the king, though they do not 
change his purpose. Yet they move him, till from his 
heart he is compelled to aay : 

" That man In the vorld wbo Hhall report he hai 

A better wife, let him In naught be tniBted 

For speaking fblie In that." 

But the influence of the tyrant's passion, and the 
Jtromptinga of his wicked heart, soon overcame his 
Bcmplea, and he succeeded in accomplishing his base 
purpose, a« Catharine with all her simple artlassness 
aud purity of mind foresaw that he would. She was 
humiliated, but in all her outward degradation she was 
made more perfect by her sufferings. She had foreseen 
the result and prepared herself for the inevitable, and 
when it came, her sterling virtues of character asserted 
themselves, and schooled by her long hardships she 
becomes conscious of her worth. She knows that pa- 
tience has In her "bad its perfect work," and in her 
anguish she cries: 

"Hayal lived lhu« long, a wife, a true one, 

A womnn (I dare eny wlUioat vain glory) 

Never yet branded with Huiplelon T 

Rave I with all my Full afTectlona 

Btlll met the king T loved bim next heaven T obeyed blmT 

Been, out of fondneni. BuperBiltloua to lilm T 

Aliuoat forgot my prayers to content blm T 

And then, filled with a sense of her innocence and the 
knowledge of the injustice done her, she adds : 
" Bring men conilant woman to her huiband, 
One that ne'er dreamed a Joy iMyond hiB pleasure, 
And to tbat woman, when (be baa done moil. 
Yet will I add an bonor,— a great patience." 
What a hidden secret in these last three words 1 Here 
she shows a knowledge of her wrongs, shows how she 
has concealed her sufferings, has excused the worst 
parts of her husband's character, and Ignored his sins 
against herself. Incapable of calumny and injury, she 

loves him, though she knows bis treachery, with tbat 
" excellence with which angels love good men." She 
" dreams no Joy except his pleasure, and forgets her- 
self In serving him." 

Her soul, beautiful upon the throne, was more beau- 
tiful still In her humiliation. Her only weakness was 
her inability to forget her royal station. But yet, when 
we consider that she was " noble born," the daughter 
of a king, and also remember that she understood that 
to give up her title and claim as queen was a virtual ao- 
knowledgment that her thte was Just, this can scarcely 
be called a weakness. Her recognition of this feet Is 
expressed by her : 

" My lord, I dare not make myself so guilty, 
To give up willingly that noble title 
Yourmaslerwedmeto. Nothing but death 
BhBll e'erdlvorce my dignities." 

The death scene of Catharine bas been referred to 
by Johnson, as the most beautiful, tender, and pathetic 
of all Shakespeare's art. In It, to the end, Catharine's 
womanly virtue and gentleness remain, and at the 
end, " dlsorowned of ail but her honor and her sor- 
row," her sweet and virtuous soul, her heart garrisoned 
with " the peace that passeth all understanding," are 
still exhibited in all their beauty. Where can we find 
a more perfect assurance of conscious right than in her 
words, Just before Iter sainted soul was to be free from 
the woe and sorrow which had so long been ber part : 
" Saw ye not even now a bleued troop 
Invite me to a baaqnet ; whose bright fkcei 
Cait a thousand bsams on me like the lun T 
They promised me eternal happiness. 
And brought me gsrlandi, wbloh I fbel 
t am not wortby yet to wear : I shall, assuredly." 

She goes to her grave reconciled with her enemy 
and destroyer. Where can we find a more forgiving 
and long-sufi^ring spirit than that shown in her mes- 
sage to bim ? 

" Bay. his long trouble now Is passing 
Out of tblB world ; tell blm tbat In death 
1 blessed blm." 

She awakes from the slumber that visits her pillow, 
and as she listens to the sad music, which she called 
ber knell, her awakening from that celestial Joy to find 
heraelf on earth, calls forth from her sorrowlug mind ; 

" Spirits of peace, where are ye T Are ye all gone ? 
And leave me here In wretabedness bebind ye t" 

How unspeakably beautiful ! 

When we come to the final struggle we fee! that we 
are entering a " sanctuary where DOthlng befits us but 
silence and tears." How calmly and serenely beautinil 
her last words fall from those lips, satisfied in the 
knowledge of her Innocence : 

** When I am dead, good wench, strew i 
WItb maiden flowers, that all Uie world may know 
I was a chaste wife to my grave. Emboli 
Then lay mo forth, nllhongh nnqucened. yet like' 
A queen, and dBunhtcr to n king. Int«

The Chronicle. 

Bufih, In the briefwt outline, in what it In, at preaent, 
the purpoee of the school to teMih. Addltlnng to the 
corps and tlie couraes of inatnictlon will be made, as 
ftoni time to time the necessity Is revealed. 

Xt nc«ds acaroety be said that this Is at the Datura of 
tnwHDlvemiliywork, No part of it will properly range 
Tftbln wbataK commonly known as the df»olpUnary 
ttadlo of the ordinary college curriculum. The ebar- 
aetaa of the courses and the methods of iustructlon will 
be essentially like those offered in the schools of politi- 
cal science at Paris, X^elpslc, Tubingen, and Vienna. 

The question as to the place of such a school in our 
system of education is not without it« Importance. 
Ought it to be Introduced as a part of undergraJuate 
work 7 Ought Its privileges to be limited to those who 
have already taken the flrst degree? Ought It to be In- 
troduced at th6 oompletion of the required or disciplin- 
ary studies of tlie oolite curriculum ? 

Many, posdbly all, of the studies introduced Into the 
school, might be taken by undergraduatee with profit. 
But they oould not be so taken without crowding out 
other studies commonly regarded an fundamental to a 
complete education. It is certain that many of them 
could beet be pursued by those who have the training 
and the maturity of post-graduates. But to limit Its 
privileges to this class would be to thwart at the outset 
the very purposes of the schotrl. For some years past 
our atudenta at the time of taking the t>aclielor'H degree 
have reached an average age of more than twenty-three 
yearv ; and to demand that they shall remain beyood 
that age is simply to provide for refusal and disappoint- 

But are there serious objections to fixing the time of 
admission to the scbool at the close of the second year 
or the completion of the required studies? Our stu- 
dents at that time are about twenty-one ye^rs of age. 
Either of them would be admitted to the university at 
Tubingen, at Vienna, or at Leipelc, or at either of the 
unlversltlea of Prussia.* Tbey have liad all the re- 
quired studies In Greek and Latin, in matbematlca and 
the natural sclenfies, In French, In German, in philoso- 
phy, and In English. That they are qualified to enter 
upon university work even of a lilgher order I cannot 
for a moment doubt. 

Moreover, I am equally confident of their disposition 
to avail themselves of the privileges they receive. If 
the history of this University within the past ten years 
proves anything, it proves beyond the possibility of 
question or doubt that our students are disposed to 
profit equally by enlarged facilities and enlarged liber- 
ties. The change in the spirit of our students within 
that period has amounted to a veritable revolution. But 
it is worthy of note that the increase of good order, the 
growing prevalence of a true scholastic atmosphere, the 
hearty friendlineta and spirit of cosperatlon between 

• Hart^ O 

n UniveTiMtii, p. J7. 

teacher and student, the practical extinction of that 
trlckishness so often the bane of the American collie, 
and the esl^Ushment of what may folrly be called a 
true university spirit, has come about as the unques- 
tionable result of a multiplication of couraes and the 
enlargement of liberties. If there ever was any doubt, 
the experience nf the last few yean Is enough to remove 
it ; and we may now assert with the boldest confidence 
that our students, under the same conditions, will pros- 
ecute their studies as Industriously and as succemfuliy 
as the students of Germany.or of any other country of 
the world. Why, then, at the end of the second year 
should we not adroit them to the same methods and 
the same privileges ? 

These are the considerations that have led to the open- 
ing of the school to students who have completed the 
second year In this University, or in any college or uni- 
versity with a curriculum of studies Butwtantlally 
equivalent. We shall aim to offer courses which need 
not shrink from comparison with those offered In the 
schools of politics in the old world. We shall give to 
our students the largest practical liberties; but we shall 
accompany those liberties with the responsibilities of 
searching final examinations. We shall endeavor to 
bring uo reproadi upon the school by giving Its final 
degree to unworthy scholarship. In so ftir as we strive 
to Imitate any, we shall endeavor to profit by the 
methods and the spirit of what we believe to be the 
best universities In the world. We shall give substan- 
tially the same prlvil^es, and we shall strive to make 
the final examinations reveal a similar grade of schol- 
arship. And when we remember that not one of the 
students admitted to the schoul would Ibil of admission 
to enter either of the universities of Germany, we are 
unable to understand why at the end of the same length 
of time, and after studies pursued lo the same spirit, 
and after examinations of the same measure of severity 
the same degree should not be conferred. 

This school ought to begin Its work with high hopes 
of wielding a large and a salutary Infiuence. Its posi- 
tion gives It eminent advantage. It is not only the 
first to be esUblished In tlie north-west, but Its organic 
connection with the Univeraity, and the privileges 
which It will offer should make Ita pathway easy and 
smooth. If those who are entrusted with the work of 
administration and instruction are true to their respon- 
sibilities, it will not be difficult, in large measure at 
least, to justify those expressions of favor, which, by 
way of anticipation, have already been so generously

AOAIK tlie chapel bell calls the faithful to prayers; 
again colleKe ballH resound with tlie quick trend 
of " Benlor and Junior and Soph., and FreHhman and 
Tutor and Prof." To at leaet two of these clasees it Is 
a year of wonderful Importance. The members of '62 
are enjoying the last of college days, the younger ones 
iQ '86 are wearing off the mnee. It la true that our 
present freahmeu are not greatly burdened with virid- 
Hy, yet even those from city high schools have some- 
thlog still to learn, and something more to reverence. 

Let lis take the liberty of giving a few words of cau- 
tion and advice to these two large bodies. The senior 
class is about to enter the breakers which wrecked the 
class of '80, and from which 'ai narrowly escaped. There 
is a B«^ylla on the right and a Charybdia on the left. 
From Jealousy Scylla went to the doge. Let not tlial 
green-eyed monster deprive you of the hearty support 
of any member of '82 for class day. There will be two 
parties in the class election ; ouemust prevail, the other 
should acquiesce. Active Jealousy would take away a 
class day; Indifibrence would make It a failure. On 
your action depends whether your last year In college 
will be regretted, or whether Its happy conclusion will 
be a source of congratulation. To the freshmen we 
would say : Early become iniereated in The Chhon- 
iCLEandother student enterprises; work for the erec- 
tion of a gymnasium ; take frequent exercise upon the 
campua; and above all, whetberyou are connected with 
a fraternity or not, at once Join and take an active part 
In one of the literary societies. There are two flourish- 
ing ones, the Alpha Nu and (be Adelphl. Each have 
nicely furnished rooms, large libraries, and give needful 
drill not to be found elsewhere. With care for these 
things, along with your college work, you will become 
a well rounded cullege man, and glory iu " mens Hana 
in corpore sauo." 

THE sound of the Miterere has Just died from our 
ears ; the tolling of the midnight bell has startled 
the quiet air. The muffled drum, the half raised flag, 
the edifice draped in solemn black, the long, slowly 
moving procession, have been the poor and unsatisfy- 
ing symbols by which a nation has shown its sorrow 
for the untimely death of lis beloved but lll-futcd chief 
executive. That so grand a man should be blotted out 
by so base a wreleh, whore nnnie shall not blacken Ibis 
page, is one of the mysterious ways of Providence. 
Yet already we can see good lighting the darkiiera. 
Party strife has been hushed, and the fomenlers of it 
have been awed by the harvest their bitterneaa hyd 
sown ; sectional hatred has been swallowed up by over- 
whelming synipathy for the patient sufTerer ; the clam- 
or of the offlce-»-eeker boa been temporarily hushed, 
and we hope forever after it will be as vain as the howl- 
ing of the storm upon a rock-bouud eoaft when there 
are no more ships lo brave Its fury. The system of 
offlce-Heiiing has bluod upon it« record, but this not the 
time for such a thought. In Ihe near future we desire 
lo discuss our system of civil service and ita preaent 

Yet, after all, as hard as it is for Ihe family, Ihe 
friends, the slate and the nation to bear this loss, we 
can not but consider that for James A. Garflcld'a fame 
and future glory the 2d of July waa the supreme mo- 
ment. Had he been assassinated two years before, he 
would have been a plain congressman without a 
world-wide reputation ; had it been three months be- 
fore, hie policy would not then have been deflned and 
we would not have lhi>roiighly known of his high qual- 
iflcations for the place. On the other hand, if the deed 
bad been committed three months laler, the carrying 
out of his policy would have caused such friction as to 
have alienated some parly or faction. The " uneY- 
pected " always came to Garfield. 

As wc reflect upon his life, those words, quoted by 
him in lilsHpeech ujion Lincoln, from his favorite poem 
" In Memorlam," come crowding forward, and point 
so significantly to him that we must give them. He 
himself waa one —

of 'H4unU '86. Upon Baturday the fttli ofOctober, these 
two classes met upon the cauiputi, to lest their ekill and 
strength at foot-tiail. The class of '84 turned out In 
very Htrong numbere for eoplia, while the fresh were 
noticeably weak for freshmen. The first part of the 
aflernoon was taken up by the Junior clans, who were 
Initialing each other Into upperclaBsmanship, by use of 
the " cane." At last, ut 3:45, the game was commenced. 
Mr. White acted as umpire for the sophs, Mr. Ayres for 
the fresh, and Mr. DePuy was referee. It was apparent 
from tlie beginning that the freshmen were no match 
fbr their oppouenta. The hall was at once carried close 
to the free hi ch' goal, and remained there until, at 4:20, 
it was kicked over. The second inninfjs woa almost a 
repetition of the Hrst, except that in this one the sopiis 
Bcx>red their victory in twenty minutes imttead of thirty- 
five. Here a protest was entered by Mr. Ay res on be- 
half of tile freshmen, on account of one of the men, 
playing with the sophs, being a law. The protest was 
not sustained. But when the "warning" was given 
to the freshmen, they paid no attention whatever to it, 
and let tbe sophs kick the i>all over without opposition. 
The referee then decided that the game was won by the 
sophs, but at a later day be changed this decision, and 
declared that the third innings must be played over. 
As yet this innings has not beea played. Tbe ring did 
not amount to much, due in a great measure to tlie fact 
that the sophs have not as yet found who are their t>oz- 
ersand wrestlers. In the wrestling neither side had a 
fall ; but for the boxing, the sophs could find no one to 
put In the ring. It is Indeed a fact to be deplored, that 
a class, after being in college for a whole year, should 

have taken so little Interest in tUeir class as not to have 
learned who of tbeir classmates can represent tbeni in 
the ring. Tf the sophomores show so little class spirit, 
what can we expect from the freshmen ? Reform is 
necessary, and without It there Is great danger that in 
the near future class spirit will be sometliing of tho 
past ; the foot-twill will no longer be seen upon the cam- 
pus; and our college will become, in reality, a ladies' 

Every time a meeting of any one of our college as- 
sociations is called. It is made painfully evident that 
there is too little Interest taken in these associations. A 
meeting of tlie Athletic Association, one of the most 
powerful of them, was called for last Wednesday even- 
ing. Matters which should have been of interest to all 
were (o be brouslit up and debated, and the result of 
this call for a meeting was that some thirty out of about 
1,500 students of the University were present. This 
same want of active interest is shown whenever any of 
tlie associations have meetings, excepting, always, 
meetings for elections, which ere invariably well at- 
attended, because naturally It Is of interest to the can- 
didates themselves aiid tliose Interested in them that as 
many of their respective sides as possible should be 
present. How can we ever expect graduates and other 
friends of the University to aid us wltb subscriptions 
and otherwise. If we won't help ourselves, and show, 
every time a meeting Is called, that we are too lazy to 
attend ? The death of all active interest In college in* 
stitutions by students Is wilbout doubt due largely to 
tbe new system. Now that students no longer associate 
In college and elsewhere wltb memlMrs of their own 
classes, there no longer exists the interest formerly 
taken In classee. This was clearly shown at the last 
meeting of freshmen and sophomores In foot-ball. We 
noticed as many as half a dozen of one class, and fully 
twice that number of the other, among the ranks of 
spectators. A few years ago these would have been 
good candidates for pumping. When asked why they 
didn't play, they said it was too much like work. Some 
will say, when asked why the^ didn't attend the meet- 


The Chronicle. 

]ng Jaxt WedneHday, tliat they didn't know one was to 
bebeld. Whose Tuultlx this? Every one knows that 
when a meetlug of any usaociation is to be held, notice 
la duly posted on tlie bulletin hoard. It surely doesn't 
take very much trouble to turn tlie eyes towards the 
board when pasaing tlii'ough the hall. We sincerely 
hope that the menibera of the peeeent frexhiiian cla.'is 
will show that they intend to take proper inttreet in all 
things of Interest to college titndenta. We hope that 
when the coinmittee-men of the Athletic Aasoeiation 
for soliciting membership, call upon fresbiuun, tliey 
will not only join the assoclBtloD, but will show by 
their future action that they are interested In It, will go 
on the campus and work to become members of either 
the fbot-ball or base-ball t^ama, and above all will at- 
tend the meetings of the association. 

We take pleasure in extending to the Junior class 
our hearty congratulntlons for the action they liave taken 
Id regard to the Junior ofTlcers. It in a step that i^hould 
have been taken long slnue, and which would liave 
aided greatly in making senior year!< much more plea- 
sant and harmonious. Surely ourclaHsea liave been Huffl 
clently divided by contentions for offices that are desir- 
able, so we may well drop those that carry odium and 
affliction with them. The effect'of Junior offices, as 
regarded In this colle;;e, is something that few havr 
stopped to consider. Most of us, periiapa, have regarded 
them as merely harmless offices. It is probable that 
most of the members of preceding classes, have gone to 
junior elections with the intention of shielding them- 
selves, rather tlian of casting reflections on any of their 
clBssmates. But think how It must appear to an out- 
sider, who only knows that Junior offices here are 
looked upon as a disgrace and a slur. Think what must 
be the feelings of one, who has thus been made a shield 
for his cluBsniates. Although he may recognize tliis fact, 
yet for a long time after his graduation he will recall 
that elecilon, aa the dark and disagreeable part of his 
college course. What must be his feellngB towards his 
classmates who have placed him in this ambiguous po- 
sition ? Now it lies In the power of coming classes to 
avoid all this, simply by abolishing junior offices, and 
there is no reason why they should not do this. No 
one derives any pleasures or benefits ^m Junior offices, 
while, on the other hand, some are made unhappy and 
miserable by them. Is not this alone sufficient reason 
for at>ollshing them ? If the coming classes will follow 
the example of the present junior class for a few years, 
It will llien be possible to restore these olSces lo their 
old positions of honor, and such as they at present hold 
in other colleges. In this way only will it be possible 
to accomplish this. , The class of 'S3 may feel proud 
that they have been the first to adopt this measure, and 
we earnestly hope that the future Junior classes will do 
the same. 

The Student's Lecture Association opened its course 
auspiciously a week ago lost Friday evening, with an 
entertainment by the Littu Concert Company and, not- 
witlislandiug the rain, the attendance on that occAsicn 
augurs well for the future prosperity of the lecture t>oard. 
The event proved that M'lle LItta has not lost one of 
the many admirers that sherecured, when lierea year 
ago. Her voice has gained In richness and lastlcity and 
coupled witli her engaging and unaffected. njiaiitier re- 
cured her a mout hearty reception on tbis occasion also. 
On the whole the concert was, of course a suci^ess, both 
financially and from an artistic point of view; yet Id 
spite of tills, it might have been more so in the latter in- 
stance, had some of the selections been different. The 
piano sohis by Miss Bangs were in good taste and well 
executed, her especial forte being in expression, in 
which the soft shailing of her passages in transition, 
without harshness or abruptness, were very fine, Mlsa 
McLaln sUMlained ber previous reputation with her pure 
voice and stralubt forward ways, with her selection in 
part second " Better Land," had the especial merit of 
freshness, Tbe selections uf Mr. Skelton on the cornet 
were not so pleasing as those with wlilch he regaled us 
before, yet were more difficult and t>etter adapted to 
show his perfect mastery of his instrument. Not mere 
triple tnngulug marks the cornet artist, but the genuine 
difficulties of straight forward execution, such as Mr. 
Skelton overcame In hia rendition of De Beriot's 
" Seventh Air." In Balfe's " Dids't thou but know," 
Mr. Montrose Qrabum mVde his appearance before an 
Ann ArlKir audience, and like an apparition of the night, 
he came and went, and we " wot not what it was." At 
all events he certainly would have created a better Im- 
pression, had he adhered to the number of the pro- 
gramme, which WHS better adapted to his voice. The 
gem of the evening, however, we took to be Maretzek's 
wallz song, "Tbe Siren," which showed in au admirable 
manner tbe wonderful fulness and flexibility of M'lle 
Lilta'a voice. The duo " Trust her not," by Balfe was 
indifferently rendered In a non-committal sort of a way, 
but Mr. Cleveland had a chance to mitigate himself in 
the la.1t number "Rigolltto," a quartette by M'lle Llttn, 
Miss MacLaln, Messrs. Cleveland and Graham. The 
board are to be congratulated ou securing such a bril- 
liant entertainment with which to open, while they 
needed no better assurance of the public confidence than 
tbe larite audience with which they were greeted. Tbe 
board last year succeeded In regaining much of that 
confidence which had been previously lost, and this 
year's board need only to finish in tbe way they have 
begun. In order to su^'tain It. 

The lovers of Rugby foot^ball have again turned 
their attention to this sport. Induced by tbe prospect of 
games with Harvard, Yale, and Princeton. Challenges 
from us have been accepted by these three colleges, and 

The Chronicle. 


11 la with pleasure tliat we eee the boya enter Into tlielr 
practice with the old vim, that told no well HgHJiiHt Ra- 
cine and Toronto. That we have to contend against 
many and i;reat obstacleg, cannot he denied. But then 
recall tliat homely old adage, "Nothlnf; ventured, 
nothing gained," and let thU urge us on. Those of ae 
that bavu vi-dted our campus during the past few days, 
have seen that we have many of our old team left, and 
good material with which to Ail the vacant places. It 
it, of course, to be regretted that we cannot have n 
time for training the team. But on the other hand, If 
we are ever going to pliiy these collides, now Is the 
time. We are In as good condition now as we ever shall 
be, and perhapa even better, since we have so many 
of our old players. That the eastern colleges will not 
accept our challenges in the spring is shown by their 
answer toourchallengeof last year. Therefore we will 
never be able to have any more practice than we have 
had this fall. Then why not try our fortune now, so 
that we may no longer be in the dark In regard to the 
relative strength of our teams ? Victory would give us 
courage, while defeat would tell ua where and how to 
Improve and strengthen oumelvee. Even defeat— and 
we do not anticipate any such result — would be better 
than that our sports should be carried on in the listless, 
aimless manner in which tliey have for the past year. 
As soon as the students learn that games will be played 
frequently with other colleges, they will at once begin 
to take some real interest In foot-ball, and work so as to 
get on the team. It la needlees to say what the result 
will be. And again, one game with good opponents 
win give the team more practice than several days of 
ordinary work, so that when they play their second or 
third game they ought to be In splendid condition. On 
account of these and many other reasons, we think that 
it behooves ua, one and all, to help and encourage them 
In every possible way. Let us show the eastern colleges 
that we are not behind them In college spirit, and that 
our teams receive Just on hearty a support as theirs. 
We congratulate Mr. DePuy upon the enterprise he has 
shown in issuing these clmllengee, and feet certain that 
a team, picked nut by such men as Horton, DePuy and 
Wormwood, will do themselves and our college credit. 

In the entertainment oQered us lost evening, the 
Lecture Board have fully auatalued the reputation they 
acquired by the Lltta Concert. Mr. Burbank is cer- 
tainly a fine elocutionlat and Impersonator, yet he 
might have made a still greater impression If be had 
been a little more deliberate in places, where the sense 
did not require such rapid articulation. His selections, 
with the exception of one or two that are too old to pre- 
sent to the public, were good. His flmt selection, in 
which he showed his mastery of the Irish brogue, did 
not take well ; but the second one, " Uncle Pete, "where 
he presented tbs true old darky, brought the audience 

to hla side, and from that time he had no ditfloulty In 
plcHsIng them. In Ills rendition of "The Last Rose of 
Summer," ho executed some very fine whistling trills, 
but there was scarcely volume enough to fill the Hall. 
As a parlor whlstier we should judge that be was a great 
success. With bis impersonations of Jefferson In Blp 
Van Winkle, we can find no fault. Mr. Burbank dur- 
ing the evening showed that tie had at his command 
the Dutch accent, the Irish brogue, and the Darky dia- 
lect, and In the latter he was especially good. The at- 
tendance waa good, and the entertainment proved 
another triumph for the Board. 

No one can deny that the present system of free 
election of studies In our University Is unsurpassed by 
that of any institution in our land; yet there are, as 
with every good method, several faults which doubtless 
will be remedied before the suds of many semesters 
sink beneath the horizon. Every year our Faculty 
makes some Improvement in the new regime, and the 
last was no exception to the rule. Stiff, as wa have be- 
fore Intimated, there are some unfortunate arrange- 
ments which are sometimes very perplexing and an- 
noying to the student. We have In mind one cose In 
particular, that serves as a very fair Illustration. The 
courses offered In German are certainly as popular as 
any afforded the student In any department, as Is shown 
by the crowded classes of every professor teaching this 
branch of the modern languages. However, altiiough 
a student may enjoy a coune in Goethe immensely, he 
does not care to translate that course In the University 
class-room without receiving credit for tne same. To 
graduate here, as everybody knows, one requires the 
completion of a certain number of courses. Now it 
certainly la too much to expect of any one, that, t>e- 
cause he happens to have read a work of some author 
and has received credit for tbe same, he wilt read and 
pass an examination In an entirely different work of 
the same author, and receive no more credit than if be 
had never seen the text. Although we have ourselves 
experienced no Inconvenience of this kind, yet the 
course in Ooetbe's Lyrlca offered this semester presents 
to many the dlflUcutty mentioned above. Tiie profes- 
sors ollbrlng this course, although glad to receive those 
who have translated Goethe's Iphlgenia— the course 
numbered the same— yet cannot on account of Faculty * 
regulations give these studies the five hours' credit at- 
tached. Now, five hours' credit, one full course, is not 
to he thrown away, nor Is Goethe's Lyrics the biggest 
"snap" (?) offered In the Univeraity. Now every one 
despises (?) snaps, of coune, yet doea like five hours' 
credit. Perhaps our respected Faculty have not taken 
this fiict Into consideration. At any rate If such is the 
case, we hope they will look at the matter from our 
point of view, and remedy this unfortunate rule, so 
that students may have the benefit of the credit as well 
as of tbe reading.

The promising Junior prom taed. 

That very eame evening thejunlor seats htmself be- 
fore a fomiidable pile or paper aud grasps a qutll. All 
his sucking extracts no thought from his pen. He gazes 
distractedly at the celling, and, while he wails for which- 
ever one of the Pierian nine that will favor hini with 
her ineplratloti, the narrow room swells to the vastness 
of starlit inHnlty, and the sober-faced old dock Identi- 
fies itself with the full moon, in which the man makes 
faces and winks at our Junior rather too ftimiliarly. The 
Inkstand, which he was about tA hurl at the insolent 
fellow, falls ou his Atvorite bunion, and lie awakes In a 
sweat. As he wipes his heated brow, be notices that lils 
handkerchief has become black. 

" Not sweating Ink, 1 liope," he exclaimed. 

" No, but you soon will be, UDleas you get me to 
help you," said a small piping voice. 

" Who are you, and why do you thus Intrude on 
my solitude?" said Quills with becoming dignity. Mr. 
O. Quills is the name of our promising junior. 

As he looked up, the queerest creature Imaginable 
greeted his eyes. The Uukuown'a arms and l^e were 
goose-qultis ; his body waa a bottle of Ink, whose 
rounded stopper formed an ezpreaslve head. His head 
u<fl« expreaslve, although his features were ordinary and 
unnotioeable, except his eyes. They showed capacity 
for deep insight into everything and everybody. Small, 
keen, spuFkiing and penetrating, they seemed like two 
glistening drops of Ink. He was attired In white paper, 
and bad a pen-wiper thrown over his shoulders as a 
cloak. Perched on the edge of the table with his feet 
dangling down, he eyed thejunlor with an air of solici- 

" Who the devil are you?" Quills asked again— this 
time in surprise. 

"No, I'm not exactly a devil. You will think me 
an angel at flmt, but afterwards you will believe ttiat 
there i<) no place hot enough for me." 

" What ! are you a willful deceiver? Do you try to 
impress upon honest folks the belief that you possess 
good qualities, which acquaintance shows you lack?" 

" Sometimes," he piped ; " but I'll tell you what I 
am, so that you can accept or reject my services as you 
choose. I am the Ohost of Spring Poetry and the Es- 
sence of D<%gere]. I can teach " 

" Canine ever be tauttht this art? Howl I learn It 
so well, (hat no slip- pup can oo-cur ? Oh I Oewhlllkins ! 
what do you mean ?" 

"Come, be decent, now! Or, I'll squirt some more 
Ink in your eye. As I was about to remark, I can teach 
you to write In four-line fatuDKas of double couplets, al- 
ternate or embracing rhyme ; in Chaucerian or Spense- 
rian stanza ; in blank verse ; In heroic couplets of iam- 
bic pentameter acatalectlc, or uatalectlc ; in «pic, lyric, 
and dramatic style; in form of sonnets, balades, ron- 
deaux, and other exoUc, hot-house varieties that spnng 

into rank vegetation under Italian skies; in short. In 
any manner as yet sanctioned, or in any way new by 
reason of breaking all established rules; and on any 
subject, from the Return of Gentle Spring, or Love, to 
a blank verse Dissertation or Ballistics, or a Cyclic Com- 
mentary on the Trojan War. Do you wish to receive 
Instruction on the whole field that I have indicated ?" 

"No, DO," Quills replied, "I would be happy, onuld 
I but say with Anacrlon— 

"or Atreus' deeds I with tosInK, 
Of CMjmaii, u>o,-tbat other cove; 
But oDl; n>in m; Ijre'a atrlng. 
Beapond to tender (tralna ot love." 

Besides, I care not for the heavier themes ; we all have 
bad Sickly CoD&mentaried on the Tmjan War projected 
at us,— likewise vernal and amorous verses. But the 
latter misaiies are light, and t)other us no more than the 
gnat on tiie ox's horn did his bovine majesty; while 
the former are as burdensome as the sack of sponges 
that the knowing ass soaked in the creek, thinking It 
his customary bag of salt. Win me the tAvor of a spor- 
tive muse, and I'll bless you forever. O, you sweet 
creature, exclaimed Quills, fklling on hia knees before 
this odil personage, " yon have come to me as an angel 
of light!'* 

" I told you that you would think me an angel at 
first. " 

" And why should I ever think you a devil, as you 
intimated I would ?" 

"You thauk me now for giving you something, 
which, when the use for It has passed, yon would give 
worlds to be rid of ; but which will blast your soul with 
a bufrtrip.sllp-llke phrenzy. The Spirit of Doggerel 
will dog you like an Erlnnya." 

"I'll risk the curse of the future for the blessings of 
the present. Faust bartered his immortal soul In ex- 
change for a brief enjoyment of tr<insitory pleoaurea, 
Oo ahead! I will take alt responsibility upon my self." 

" What do you want to learn first ?" 

" The easiest," replied Quills. 

" Well, spring poetry is the easiest. That Is the 
first form of the poetic furor into which Diana drives 
one. Id Rome, indeed, this class of writing was so lux- 
uriant that the Emperors dispensed purgatives and or- 
dered the people to purge themselves of bile ; and yet 
many, oppressed by Diana's hand, strode the streets 
with heads thrown back and fell into ditches. And 
people wondered why the goddess had afflicted them — 
" whether they bad desecrated an holy spot, or bad 
violated their fathers' ashes." Closely connected with 
spring poetry Is amatory verse, and, Indeed, I might 
say that they were inseparable ; for, wliere can you find 
a verse maker to whom roses and lilies do not suggest 
his mistress's complexion, and vice versa." 

"But hold on," our Junior Intermpted, "people 
would withhold now the slight notice Ihey Mce of

time of the year to spring It on them." 

"Why not? Do we not prize fruit out of season, 
while we take it as a matter of course in season ? The 
very perverseness of human nature would guln you bet- 
ter attention now than at any other tiiue. Besides, this 
is tlie springtide of your life aui] uf your verse-niuklng. 
What could be more natural than that you should in- 
dulge in spring poetry?" 

" Well then, go ahead and tcncii tne." 
"Can't now; I'll give the first lesson some otiier

times. The former is either condemned or praised, the 
latter must be condemned and praised. 

In his youth Cortez gave no promise of anytliing 
but mediocrity. On account of Ills dissolute habits he 
was expelled from college. He then turned his atten- 
tion to the law, but here he also made a failure. Next 
he was fired with zeal fur a military life, and after sev- 
eral abortive attempts, set sail for Cuba. In perfect 
barmoiiy with his previous course, lie was Induced to 
lay aside his adventurous dreams and become a farmer. 

But soon the conquest of Mexico was determined 
upon, and in tliat very instant Cortez, the Imbecile, 
died. All wavering vanisiied from his character, and 
in Its place was a dogged steadfastness of purpose that 
overcame every obstacle. He was appointed com- 
mander of the expedition by Velaaquez, because he 
thought he could bend him to bis wishes. But tiie Cor- 
tez of yesterday was dead. The man with no purpose 
was changed into the man witli one purpose. He took 
the whole affair into bis own bands and spent all bis 
fortune in fitting aul the expedition. 

Soon after his arrival In Mexico he performed a 
deed without a parallel in tlie world's history. In a 
strange land, knowing almost nothing of what was be- 
fore him, far distant from any aid, with no resources 

Cortez first marched against the Tiasoulans. Id fats 
dealings with tbem he showed not only great general- 
ship, but also great statesmanship. With a mere hand* 
ful of men, he ciinquered a race of warriors, who out- 
numbered hid own troops a thousand to one. But that 
was almost child's play in com|)arison wltli the odds 
against wiiich lie afterwards contended. His exploits 
read like one of Baron Munchausen's tales. He not 
only conquered this nation, but by lila diplomacy made 
thenk his firm friends. 

Ciesar conquered nations and made tiiem his allies, 
never Ills friends. They were always ready to revolt. 
Tlie TIaecalans never faltered for an instant In their 
friendship for Cortez. Like Mahomet, he carried tl e 
sword in one liand and the olive branch in ttie other; 
but unlike Maiiomet, he combined their uses. 

It is not our purpose to give a detailed account of 
the life of Cortez. Suffice it to say, that Bteadfastness of 
purpose aticnmplished Its infallible end. 

It is a study In itself, how he could accomplish any- 
thing with bis troops. They diflbred from each otlier in 
race, language, custitma and temperament,^" Adven- 
turers from Cuba, craving for gold ; liidalgos, wiio came 
from tlie old country to win laurels ; broken down cav- 
aliers ; vagabonds, fiying from justice; the grasping 
followers of Narvaez ; wild tritiea of the natives from 
ail parts of Ibe country ; and his owu reckless veterans; 
— men, in short, with scarcely anything in common. 
A master-mind has unwittingly described them: 
" Adventurers tliey, rroro fir, who roved

They would have fallen to pieces in a single 
day, but that they were ruled by an unrivalled skill. 

But liow shall we treat of the man, Cortez? Of him, 
whom hardship only made stronger, and whose com- 
plete success was his greateit curse ? 

We are forced to admire his surpassing abilities, 
while we shudder at his deeds. The lulnd is appalled 
at the sulTering wliicli lie occasioned. For intensity of 
liorror the scenes during the siege of the capital are un- 
rivallsd. After a bard day's fighting. In which a num- 
ber of tlie trtmps of Curtez were captured, the army 
was encamped on the shore of the narrow lake that sep- 
arated tiiem from the city. Suddenly tlie sound of tiie 
great drum comes booming over the water, and the 
soldiers of Cortez gaze on the following scene : A pro- 
cession Is slowly moving up the steps of the principal 

pie of the Aztecs. Ii^ it, tbey can p'ainly see their

tive. He Inserts his band in the gaping wound and 
draws out tlie pulsating heart of the Btill conscious vic- 
tim. Streaming with blood, it ia nffered up as an ac- 
ceptable sacrifice to the gods, white the gory corpse is 
iiurled down the temple steps, fur the ghou.-like inhabi-

tiie lake. No wonder tLat in llie tlna) buttle the sold- 
iers took ample revenge '. Two hundred thousand bouJs 
perished before the city was captured. 

The character of Cortez Is a study. It is ft conglom- 
eration of seemingly Incompatible traits. He was gen- 
tle and kind, yet rigidly pevere ; ailbertineand a bigot; 
greedy and liberal ; liendstrong and cautious; social and 
autitere; forgiving and implacable; a general and a 


Editohs Chkohicle: 

CluBM Spirit! You have probably heard of It before, 
at least we suppose so. It has been written of and dis- 
cuseed BO much of late, that It Is only with difRculty 
that we can persuade ourselves to speak of it. But at 
times, during the latter part of the past college year, it, 
that bumble, inolTenslve being, Class tjpirit, was spoken 
of in sucb disparaging terms by The Chronicle that 
we feel as thougii something should be eaid In defense. 

We are conscious that some will say that it is not be- 
coming to wait so long before speaking of the matter; 
but to those we will say, that " the last straw which 
broke the camel's back " was not piled on until about 
ttie last number. Again, we hope that we may not be 
aocuaed of " rushing into print " like a mad Texas steer 
over a bridge, on account of several remarks made Id 
past numbers of Thk Chronicle. But we view with 
alarm the tendency of some to magnify the beinousness 
and Imrbarlsm of the crime of our poor client. 

In our opinion, Class Spirit does not necessarily im 
ply that we sliould engage in bitter, heartless warfare 
against one another; that we should disfigure, mai 
or even kill another; that the born should be brought 
forth from its long concealment ; that certuin onest 
should serve on altendants in seeing that certain others 
get a thorough bath ; that midnight carousals or die 
graceful depredations of all sorts should be indulged in 
or. In short that any of those horrible phantoms ant 
relics of a barbarous age, which have troubled ant 
racked the brains of some, should rise in all tbeii 
damnable inventions to disturb the equilibrium of this 
peaceful community. Little do we desire such a state 
of afTairs. 

The fall of 1878 witnessed the Inauguration of the 
new regime, and with it came a corresponding change 
In the activity of class spirit. We are not attacking tbe 
believe that a claoe spirit can prevail under the 

new regime, far lieour thoughts from that; but we do 
reginie. Since the detillne of class spirit, I. e., since 
the fall of '78, we have been ctmcerned In two or three 
of tbe most vloleiit collisions with tbe authorities. 
What do the great advocates of the abolition of class 
spirit aay of this? While we have never for one mo- 
it considered that the Oracle of '83 stood In need of 
any praise, still, a sentiment expressed by one of the 
editoPM of The Chronicle, In his review of that pub- 
lication, bears directly upon the subject in band. The 
article says : " It (The Oracle) was born of class spirit 
and the foolish autagoni^m formerly existing between 
prtifesMor and siudenl," Now we must emphatically 
deny that class spirit has anything to do with the "fool- 
ish aniugonism " alluded to. 

Not only tbe Oracle, but theburningof Mathematloa 
and tbe " hat wur" were assailed in a vigorous style In 
ral articles during tiie lost semester. The article 
referred to nbove said further: " Tlie attempt to keep 
up tbe various customs of the days when the University 
partook iar^'ely of the nature of the one-horse college 
and b<iardiug school. Is notonlyfrultlesd, but senseless." 
It must have cruelly lacerated tbe tender heart, and 
wounded the delicate feelings of the writer of the above 
to see his fellow students ' swiuf; out' in distlnclive 
clans bats. We suppose he looks down with acoru upon 
Yale, Harvard, Cornell and other colleges where claas 
spirit runs at high tide. 

Any writer bos tbe perfect right to express his honest 
convictions through tbe columns of a Journal, and we 
would be tbe last to deny such aright; but still we 
think it no injustice, or infringement upon that right, 
to subject all contributions, whether they are from an 
editor or contributor, to proper criticism. We hope 
that tbe class of 'S4 will see fit to publish an Oracle this 
year, notwithstanding the protests that may bepreaented. 

It Is our belief that four-fifths of the students would 
gladly see a gentlemanly and active class spirit prevail. 
It will be a source of pleasure to all to looit back upon 
their college life, and the " ups and downs" which their 
respective classes have sustained. An awakening of the 
old customs will serve materially to bring about a 
pleasant state of afHiiTB. A reasonable and judicious 
revival of class spirit will harm no one, will in no wise 
injure our college work, and will cause us all to look 
back with pride and pleasure upon tbe days spent under 
the guidance of our Alma \Mater. What could have 
been a more pleasant sight than that of the last senior 
class, listening to their " deeds and misdeeds " of four 

u the 2:

e lost. Closs Day every where 

Is regarded as the most cheerful and pleasing of all com-

bow gloomy and desolate will be end of your college 
course, no bright and entertaining history, no cheerful 
and witty prophecy, nothing, about which may cling 
our fondest recollections of the happy days spent within 
the classic shades of the U, of M. 

As Thk Chronicle Is now in the complete control 
of '82. it is our earnest wish that the students stir up an 
active class spirit; for we are sure that the class of '82, 
In the light of ber post history, will do nothing lo re- 
tard It. ITHOaiEL.

~\F all the yeare of her htatory, the University of 
' Michigan has seldom, If ever, witnessed ao many 
needful Improvements about the cerupus as have been 
made this summer and are slill b«ing made. Of the 
changes which are completed we wltl record first those 
Id University Hull, the condition of which was found 
to have been so unsafe. Strong supports have been put 
In, and it Is now pronounced safe by an architect who 
knows. A ligbtercetilngaud frescoing haTebeen added, 
and the hall is now ready for the winter campaign. 
But perhaps the greatest cliange an old graduate would 
notice would be that in the north wing of the main 
building. There, where formerly college men snored 
away the night, and where laler was the museum, now 
Is heard the voice of the lecturing professor. Nearly 
all the rooms are turned into leclure-roonis, and pleas- 
ant places they make, for, as the acoustic and Vfntilat- 
Ing properties are good, both professor and student can 
enjoy the lecture. When the remainder of the rooms 
In that wing are vacated, it is expected that a good one 
will be reserved for The Chkonicle, where we may 
keep our flies and records, transact our business, and 
have a reading-room for friends to drop in and look 
over the eschanges f>om other colleges and universities. 
In strolling across Ihe campus one sees great activ- 
ity In removing trees, digging trenches, and studying 
plans. There on a line between the main building and 
the Laboratory, two-thirds the distance towards the 
Utter structure, is to lie the new Library building. The 
plans are perfected, and a view of thena shows us that 
It is to be as perfectly flre-proof asitis possible to build. 
The reading-room Is to be semi-circular, and will re- 
ceive its light from above. The book room, which can 
be entirely shut off from the rest of the building, is to 
have galleries with platforms of rolled glass, as in the 

large libraries east. Probably two yeare' time will be 
necessary fnr its erection, and when it is completed 
large additions will be made to the number of books 
therein, both front appropriations and from private in- 
dividuals, who will then feel that their donations cMi 
be safely kept. The new sewers running from the 
campus to the river wilt greatly improve the sanitary 
condition of (he grounds, and the new eye and ear ward 
supplies a want long felt. These improvements men- 
tioned will cost about II2&.000 when Anished. 

MICHIGAN University students and alumni are 
still on the war-path fnr a gymnasium. Every 
student enterprise making money in ntralnlngtoadd its 
contribution to tlie fund. Every undergraduate feels a 
need for profllable exercise, and many a graduate knows 
that his health would have l>een better if he had had 
systematic training while in college. Now as cold 
weather approaches cftmpus sports will soon be impos- 
sible, and we have no other place to look to for physical 
development and needful exercise. Men who have 
plenty of out-door work do not realize how much we of 
sedentary pursuits require something to wake us up. 
By setting the blood to rushing through our veins our 
minds think quicker and clearer, lessons are more easily 
learne<l, and our health is l>eller after leaving college. 

A few of the alumni realize tliese things, as all 
should, and they realize, ton, that our own elforts un- 
aided by them are too slow to do this generation any 
good. They stand by us well In subscribing, but this Is 
not enough; something more must be done. A Chi- 
cago alumnus goes at this in a right way. He writes 
us as follows : 

" or cuune I wntit Thr Cbbokicle Tor tbe coming yenr, and 
I vlBhHlKi todoHnmethlnglnwnnlB helping niang Thr CHROXt- 
CLB'a giKxl work tn atlemptlng U> BweU Ibe gymnnnlum mod. If

and will make IttriO If ten other alurai 

gymnaalam r\)nd, 
II behnnted out loglve 
a like amoant. C. a BURCH. 75," 

Now the sound of this letter, with its generous sum 
and offer of more, has a true business-like ring to It, 
and we want to earnestly present this matter to the 
considerutlim of the alumni, and urge them to send us 
their subscription to the fund of which Mr. Burch's 
offer is the nest-egg. He has suggested a plan that 
should be responded to by nine others at once; and 
although he mentions alumni, we presume that in this 
gixMj work he would not object to having associated 
with him citizens who would imitate the generous ex- 
ample set them by Mr. J. T. Jacobs and Mr. Hegeler. 

Gentlemen alumni, will you excel others in words 
of love for Alma Mater and let others excel you in deeds 
looking to the welfare of her sons? We confldenlly 
expect that you will show this love, which we know 
you feel, in a substantial way. Let us hear Uaax you.

Byder, pastor of the Congregational Church, and Mlas Ada Tripp, 
Of UilB city, were married at tbe residence of the bride's mother

many sleepless ulghla, and many disgraceful (T; flunks. 

Tlie gymnasium fund geUa boom from C. 8. Burcb. of -76, now 
In Chicago, He sends, through The ChhoNicle. twenty-flve dol- 
lars to the fund, and says he will make U fifty before the eud of 
theyear If ten others will do the same thing. This Is a good start. 
Now let the boom continue. An nlumnus cnn make his name 
memorable to the sludenU of hla alma mater In no belter way 
than by following the example set by Mr, Burcb. We know of a 
resident of tbe city who will. In ell probability, make n good ad- 
dition to the fund before next spring. Keep her booming, and we 
will gat tbe " gym'' In spite of the Legislature. and the upholders 
of the " buck-saw exerctse."

Fresh and soph mel upon tbe campus two weeks ago lo-day 
Ibr their annual foot- ball game. Altbougb tioth parties were on 
tbe ground In good time, the playing did not begin tilt nearly four 
o'clock. Ai usual, the freshmen outnumbered by tM Ihe sopbs, 
but wben they oame to the tug-of-war, experience wae too much 
for strength, and the sophs bad tbe usual walk-away wllh the In- 
nings. Tbe (Irsl Inning was quite warmly contested, but the seo- 
ond and third were carried through In a hurry. Tbe ring was not 
as good as usual, as a wrestling match was all thai could be drum- 
med up. In this the sophomore acknowledged afterward thai the 
fteshman was loo many for him. Although the fresh tried to get 
up another roatcb, the sophs fell Indlapoeed. so the ring broke up. 
Tbelnnlors and the llnie-honored cane were on the ground, of 
course, and the metnberi of '8S were lultlated Into the ranks of 
up pe r-cl aasm en . 

The new lecture board are to be congratulated upon the saoceas 
of their first entertainment; LItta wns greeted by a very large au- 
dience one week ago last night, and completely succeeded la 
pleasing ibem. The troupe has very nearly the same members as 
last year. and. allowing us to l>e Judge, we should say they bad 
made much Improvement In Iheir musical abl lilies. Hr 
BkeltonandblscorneCas wellasLlltaand Miss McIaIu, will al- 
ways be welcome In Ann Arbor. All three were hearllly encored, 
end In answer, gave selections that all oould appreciate and be 
pleased with. The reserve seal (lyilem is a good thing, and a 
source of much comfort to the public. We noticed one or two mis- 
lakes such asoughl not to occur, vli.: onupons for aame the seats 
were;heldbytwo persons. Too mucb care cannot be taken In giving 
the coupon It places both llie usher and the holders In

was such as tn make the boys smile very broadly.

A Selsctlnn from the Letters of Madame H«niuaat to ber Hus- 
band and Bon, from 1801 to IBIS; translated from the French by Mrs. 
Cashel Hoey and Mr. John Llllle. D. Appleton A Co., N. Y.-The 
ageof letter writing has passed away. In olden days, when the 
Ikstest messenger was borne on hi* Journey by the speed of the 
borae, when more ordinary letters were weeks In reaching tbclr 
destluallon, there was a neoesslty for writing letters worth the 
time and trouble of tran spur tat ion. Nowadays, a few lines on a 
postal card, or a short message over the lightning-spirited wires, 
in a ftiw momenU, or a few hours' lime, convey to dear ones sep- 
arated all tidings of Interest or Importance; and a short ride will 
bring them bigetlier agal n . Madame de Rimusal lived In timea 
When newspapers and means of rapid coorrespoodence were un- 
known. Her letters are Qlled with items of news such as are. In 
these days, spread from one end of the world lo the other-wllb the 
speed of lightning. In reading many of the letters to bar husband 
one wanders whether such terms of endearment are now oommon 
In letters of wives to absent husbands. Many of them are modal 
love letters, and for that reason tbe book would be an Invaluable 
aid to students In their Sunday labors. ■' H. de Himusat became 
Pref^t and Mme. de B6musal Lady of the Palace, respectively, 
in 18D2; the former was afterward Chamberlain and Superin- 
tendent of Plays." This was In the days of Emperor Napoleon t. 
All letters that passed between husband and wife came under the 
observation, or rather critical Inspection. of the Emperor. This 
is seen by a tone of reticence mingled with flattering expressions, 
written to her husband, but Intended to be seen by the Emperor 
and Empreaa. Scattered through the letters are many beautiful 
allusions to persons of note, and quaint remarks, making a vol- 
nme of very inleresling letters. For sale by John Uuore. 




dHturday, October 22d, diiwneii bright and beauti- 
ful, and Hlled tlie wliule volle^e wurlil with Joy over tlie 
pnieiiect of pleai>ant weatlier for field day. In no wise 
did the day disappoint tliem, tor the weather continued 
fine till nlghtrall., and thus enabled the full program to 
be carried out, an uDheard of thing previous to this 
time; for lieretofore a storm of Home iiind hat either 
stopped the performance bcfon! it was half done, or else 
prevented it entirely. The forenoon coutests began at 
9:2-5, when the tea mile walk was started with four con- 
teitUnlB. E. L. Rooks, law, took the lead and held It 
throughout, but was closely followed by J. J. Coniatock, 
lit. Books flniabed the tenth mite In 1 h. 48 in. 4H sec , 
and won. Boon after the ten mite walk was betcun, the 
hour go-as-you-pleiise was started, with four contest- 
ants. Messrs. Relgiiard and Qemmell, owing to an 
oversight of the judges in nut turning one of them in 
the Dpposile direction for the last round, canie out even, 
covering Id the hour within eleven rods of seven miles. 
In the boxing contest there were three entries, but when 
It was called only two of the contestants, Messrs. Win- 
termute and McNaughton, medics, entered the ring. 
Wintermutc won by 15 hits to McNaughtou's 12. After 
they had finished, the third contestant, Mr. Davis, law, 
appeared, and, although according to the Association's j 
rules he was debarred from contesting for the prize, he 
and Wintermute boxed one round of two minutes, In 
which Davis got in 27 hits to Wintermute's 17. Mr. 
Wintermute requested the Judges to award Davis the 
prize, but they, according to the rules, could not do It. 
The 18-pound sledge was thrown by four contestants. 
Mr. Ricketts, law, by a Scotch swing, heaved it 69 feet, 
and won. The J mile run was won by F; Nelson, law, 
in S2 seconds, the best time Ihat has ever been made 

here. Mr. Nelson also won the prize in throwing the 
buMebali, 308 ft. 10 In. In the contest of shooting glass 
balls there were nine entries. Mr, Davenport, lit, made 
a clean score, and Mr. Norris, law, broke nine out of a 
possible ten. This was a very exciting contest, and fur- 
nished a great deal of pleasure to the siiectators. The 
standing broad Jump was won by Mr. Harsliman, law. 
He Ncored H ft. 10 1-6 in. At two o'clock the afternoon 
program began with the drop-kick. Mr. Olcott, lit, 
kicked the ball 12i feet, and won. There were two en- 
tries for the running high Jump ; but when the contest 
was called, neither put in an appearance, hence It was 
postponed indefinitely. While the contestants were 
preparing for the col lar-and -elbow wrestle, Mr. Olcott 
gave a very fine exhibition of his skill In Indian-club 
iwlnging. After he had finished, Messrs. Leiand, lit, 
tiid E. L. Rooks, law, entered the ring for the collar- 
iiid-elbow wrestle. This contest was very close, and 
ihowed a great deal of skill. The first fall was secured 
by Rooks, by a grapevine lock ; the second was pecured 
by Leiand in the same way, and the third was also se- 
cured by Leiand, but only after breaking a splendid 
bridge made by Rooks. Fifteen men from each of the 
classes of '84 and 'Si arranged themselves along the rope 
for the tug-of-war, and at Hie word "Pull" tiiey — sat 
down !— their strength being being so great (?) that the 
rope parted In the middle. A second rope was procured, 
and a second time they arranged themselves, and pulled; 
when time was called, the Judges had lost the mark, 
lience could give no deuisien. A third attempt resulted 
In a victory for '84. Kuechler, lit, '81, won on the hori- 
zontal bar. His giant swing was especially fine. Tlie 
hundred yards dash was won at first by Bartells, law, 
but as a foul start was claimed, the race was run a sec- 
ond time, when Harshman, law, won in 11 sec. Bar- 
tells ran but once. In the mile run three started, but 
only two held out for the mile. Mr. Nelson, law, won 
in & mln. 15 sec. Mr. tjtebbings, lit, made the mile in 
5 min. 35 sec The bicycle race of half a miie was won 
by Ooe, lit. The start was made from a line, and al-

ing the afternoon, wait won by the laws ; xcoro 17 to 4. 
The attendance during the ToreuooD was sniali, but dur- 
ing the arternoon a very large crowd was present. The 
city band enlivened the afternoon with some of its fine 
music. During the whole day the utmost good- will and 
enthusiaein prevailed. Thanks are due to the pro- 
fessors who acted as judges, and to all other persons 
who helped to make the fleld-day a success. Especial 
praise is due Mr. Olcott, the president, whose executive 
ability was severely Iried, and stood the test. Although 
but one weeic was taken to prepare for the day, it was 
in all respects a success. 

The city council of Ann Arbor has again distin- 
guished Itself. With itH usual obtuseness it iias alh'Wed 
itself to be cajoled by a few sore-head business men 
into passing an absurd and illegal ordinance. The or- 
iliuance requires all persons "soliciting orders for or 
aetling goods, wares or merchandise from samples with- 
in the Uiuits of the city of Ann Arbor," to pay a license 
of $26 per day. But His provided that " this ordinance 
la not intended to apply to sales by samples to mer- 
chants and regular dealers within the city." The pur- 
pose of this ordinance la obvious. It is an eflbrt on the 
part of certain business men to secure the student trade. 
But they rather overshot the mark. The ordinance so 
far as Its validity is concerned, is not worth the paper 
it was written on. A common council has no right to 
levy a tax or license upon any business unless express 
authority is given by the legislature in the city ciiarter. 
The city charter of Ann Arbor does not contain a single 
line granting to the council the power of licensing 
trade, except in the case of peddlers. This ordi nance 
is obviously directetl against Detroit tailors and hatters. 
Surely they could not be classed in the category of 
peddlers. Further than this, the ordinance legislates 
against a certain class. The ordinance was passed sim- 
ply and solely to break up the the trade of Detroit tail- 
ors and hatters in Ann Arbor. Not only this ; the or- 
dinance exempts those traders who sell by samples to 
the city merchants. In short, the ordinance is passed 
against a certain portion of a class. It is In its very 
essence and spirit an instance of class legislation, and 
as such wholly unconstitutional. Moreover, a license 
is intended to be regulative, not prohibitive. The li- 
cense demanded in this ordinance is so heavy that it Is 
practically prohibitory, and certainly that was its spirit. 
It wae designed, as was said above, for the sole purpose 
of prohibiting a certain branch of trade. It is almost 
needless to say that this la another element of its un- 
co nstitution all ty. But it ia not only Its illegality that 

Is noticeable. In absurdity It approaches the sublime. 
It seems to l)e the opinion of tlie instigators of this 
fcheme that in this way they can secure the student 
trade. Tliey seem to forget that trade cannot be forced. 
The students will trade where they can get what they 
want. If they can not get it in Ann Arijor tiiey will go 
to Detniit for it. The hUMlness houses of Ann Arbor 
will never secure student trade until tiiey import a stock 
of gcMKls that will supply the dennmds of (he students 
as reganls i|uuiity. LiiKt spring when the class of '82 
were talking of purchasing class hats bids and samples 
were sent in by a Detroit firm and an Ann Artmr Arm. 
Tiie Ann Arbor flrm received the c<nitract. Wliy ! Be- 
cause their style of hat met the approval of (he students 
while the style exhibited by the Detroit firm did not. 
Four years ago there was not a decent stock of gentle- 
man's neckwear, collnra, and cuffs In the city. The 
students purcijased ali such goods In Detroit. Since 
then a flrni here has brought Itito tne city a fine and 
complete stock of (ills clans of goods. The result Is the 
students no longer go (o Detn<it for their neckwear, but 
purshase it here, and when, two years ago, a Detroit 
flrm tried to work up a trade tliey failed completely. 
There Is but one thing for the tailors andliatters of Ann 
Art)or to do, and that is to keep In stock goods (hut the 
students will buy. It may lake time to secure the 
wislied for result; but it will come at last. Itwlllnever 
t>e brought about by the means of illegal and unconsU- 
tullonai city ordinances. 

It Is to the credit of the Lecture Association, that 
It is willing to assume the large monetary risk involved 
in securing a troupe of the character of the Kellogg 
Concert Company; but, of course, it wae a foregone 
conclusion that there would be a crowd, or, at least, but 
one lees, when Miss, Kellogg was the attraction. The 
audience, Friday night, testified to the wisdoni of the 
Association In securing the best. Following so closely 
upon Litta's Concert, it is but natural that a'compari- 
son would he made, not altogether favorable tn Mile. 
Litta. Of course, with the exception of Litta, there 
can be but one judgment, and that Is, that in program 
and in presentation the concert of Friday night was a 
great Improvement, We must say a word, however, on 
the subject of programs. The program of Litta as first 
planned would have been a step In the right direction, 
for we should have had a part at least of a work of art. 
There Is no reason why such a troupe sliould not give a 
large part of some acknowledged work of art, instead of 
treating us to musical trash. Such operas as Trovatore 
do not absolutely need the accessories of the stage to be 
enjoyed and understood. A program should be artistic 
in its contents and arrangements. Neltlier Miss Litta's 
nor Miss Keiiogg's program was artistic from either of 
these points of view. It seems to us that the Lecture 
Association has a right to demand beforehand a copy of

amountx us coiupenaation for their services, imd it is fur 
thetu to aay wliat these oervlced bIihII he. In regard to 
tlie perriiniiftDce it may be said that iit general it was 
fairly done, but then.- were few interpretations. MIsh Kel- 
logg was tlie center of attraution, and we know of not a 
few who went away diaappointed. She is a woman of 
marlced ability, both musically and otherwise. Bhe has, 
however, a method of vocalization whioh dlatorta and 
fails to present her conceptions, especially in piirasing. 
This was most manifest in liar " Tac.a la nolle." Her 
beat Interpretation was that of Tosti's "Good Bye," 
which really deserved the applause that followed. Miss 
Poole has a voice of good quality and under very fair 
control. Her first selection was a little unfortunate, as 
it was not adapted to her voice, but her otiipr selections 
and the most of her encgres were good and admirably 
done. 8lg. Togliapletra pos-iesses a pure baritone voice 
of rich, and liquid quality when kept within bounds, 
but because of tiiat very richness it cannot be forced 
without detriment. His Interpretations were faulty be- 
cause be either mistook the size of the room or did not 
care to waste bis voice. He also did a thing of bad taste 
in closing every composition with a bravura cadence. 
It was delightful, after ail, to listen to his tones, espec- 
ially in that old and beautiful little serenade of Padille, 
with Its modern setting. Hig. Brlgunli Is evidently on 
the shady side of his artistic career, and It was only oc- 
casionally that we caught glimpses of the old fire which 
made him one of the most popular tenors that has ever 
visited our shores. The violinist, Mr. Adamouski, has 
a very sweet, purely intonated tone, but lacking in 
manly vigor and breadth. The Caprice by Vieuxlempls 
we are unacquainted with, and cannot thereforejudge of 
his interpretation, but he did a very nice thing in his 
encore, by responding with one of Chopin's nocturnes. 
The piano compositions were most atrociously execuled. 
The usual encoring of almost everything on the pro- 
gram tesUfled to the Impartial temper of the audience 
and their keen appreciation and enjoyment of the pro- 

Last evening a large audience greeted the Blayton 
Star Company in University hall. Miss Hovey, the 
soprano, has a sweet, smooth voice, but It Is not heavy 
enough for our ball. We would make the same 
complaint about the voices of the rest of the troupe. 
The tenor also had a pleasant voice, but to our ears the 
alto's singing was wretched. The bass also must go 
without praise from us. Mr, Heine, the blind violinist, 
was really the life of the evening, and while he executed 
the more sober pieces very finely, when he chose he 
drew roars of laughter from the audience. His whistle 
■olo was especially fine. It seems strange that such 
sweet music could be drawn from a toy whistle, but Mr. 
Heine seems to have mastered the art completely. 


Through the energy of the boys Interested In foot- 
ball it was recently decided to challenge the teams of 
wime of the eastern colleges, and Harvard, Yale and 
Princeton were picked out u the victims. The chal- 
lenges were accepted and the following of our best play- 
ers were selected to carry consternation into their oppo- 
nents ranks: Forwards, Ay res. Woodruff, Townsend, 
Wilson, Bltner, Qllmore; quarter-back, Horton, Cap-

To J. E. BEA.L, or THE ChroMOLb ; 


This steady holding of one of the t>est college foot- 
ball teamsdownsonearthelr goal line by our own team, 
w'lleh had practiced so little, surprised us all, and U. of 
M, foot-ball stock rose conslder:tbly while we Impa- 
tiently watted for further reports. By this morning's 
mail we received a letter describing the game minutely. 
We are Indebted to the kindness of Mr. E. H. Bowman, 
'81, for this letter. It is here printed : 

At 3:21, on Monday afternoon, at the Boston base- 
ball grounds, the referee, Mr. H. Q. Leavitt, Harvard, 
'62, called "time" in a pouring rain. Michigan won 
the toss and took the southerly goal. The game com- 
menced with a fine klck-ofTby Harvard, who at cap- 
tain Manning's well known cry of " down Harvard " 
made a rush for Michigan's goal. The ball was wcJt 
returned by Olcott, who was playing full back. Then 
followed a series of passes and runs, whioh brought the 
ball uncomfortably close to our goal line. A few min- 
utes later Harvard made their first and only touch- 

The try at goal resulted in a failure, probably due 
largely to the soggy state of the ball. This ill success 
caused Michigan to redouble Its efforts and during the 
remainder of the game the advantage was largely on 
our side. They overcame their nervousoess and went 
to work in earnest. The ball was sent from our goal 
line, after Harvard's try, up past the twenty-four yard 
Hue toward their goal, wiien It pitched into touch. 
When it was thrown back into play, Olcott carried it 
several rods up the field. Wormwood called it " down" 
soon after In the middle of the field. It was then

ceeded in making another run, A good kick by DePiiy 
followed up with a miss by Harvard and a fplcndidrun 
b; Wormwood brougKt the ball near Harvard's goal 
line. It was then slowly worked back tomid-fleld, 
where It rested, when time was called at 4:15. Owing to 
the wretched weather and the heavy conditions of the 
grounds, Captains Horton and Manning bad agreed tn 
have 30 minute innings Instead of 46 minutes as pre- 
gcritied by the rules. 

The ball bad become so wet and slippery that throw- 
Ingand passing became Impossible. Horlnn in kiclilng 
off fur Michigan made a short liick, being followed by 
Ayres, who picked up the ball and made a gno<l run. 
Here a foul was claimed by Harvard and allowed by the 
referee, who declde<l Ayres "offside" when be took 
up the trail. It was taken back, a scrimmage followed 
with advantage for Michigan. The baH pitched into 
" touch," Harvard threw it in, and it was worked over 
into the mid-field. DotI got It, and made a brilliant 
run, the best of (he game. The Harvards crowded their 
opponents back again to mld-lield. Then followed a 
series of runs by our men, which resulted In Worm- 
wood's landing the ball within ten feet of the goal, 
whllehe was doing hia best to carry half of the Har- 
vard team across the Hue with him. The ball was then 
put down. Ayres made a splendid rush, and carried 
the ball and several Harvard men with him. It was 
then Dut down within five feet of the goal line. 

Tb is spurt was followed by a series of botly con- 
tested scrimmages, in which Ayres put forth all his 
strength to carry the ball over the line. It was in this 
part of tlie game that the superior weight of the Har- 
vard team was used effectively. By sheer force they 
worked tlie ball up the field several rods. DePuy at 
this point mode a good run across the field, getting the 
down near the twenty-flve yard line. Then followed 
runs, hicks, and scrimmages within a few rods of Har- 
vard's goal, neither appearing to gain much ground on 
theotber. "Time" was then called, with the ball one 
quarter way up the field froD^ Harvard's goal, not hav- 
ing passed the centre of the field during the entire In-

' The Michigan boys are mucii pleased with the re- 
sults of the game, and feel that tliey did all that could 
be ex|>ected of them against the unusuully strong team 
which represents Harvard College tliis year. Many of 
the Harvard men say that It is tlie best team they have 
liail in years, and they have strong liipes of carrying 
off the college championship. The comments made by 
tlie Harvard College men on the playing done by llie 
Univerfiity eleven were very favorable. 

The weather was eo very unfavorable that but a 
small audience witnessed the game. However, there 
were enough of the Harvard College boys to make the 
welkin ring with their three times-three " rahe " and 

Among the vnrious buildings In the college grounds 
at Cambridge, none delighted the eleven from Ann Ar- 
Ixir more than the Hemenwuy Gymnasium. They 
thought if the Board of Regents could but be induced 
to come to Cambridge and pay this wonderful institu- 
tion a visit, that the question of a gymnasium at the 
University would soon be settled in the affirmative. 

The eleven is much indebted to tlie Harvard eleven 
for their courtesy and hospitAllty. e. u. b. 

From one of the Boston papers weget theh>llowing

is especially interesting and vivid :

BY MK. G. aUlLLS. 

Mr. G. Quills is laboring under a delusion thiti eve- 
ning. Being fond of Matbemalice, lie was accuflunied 
to solve inentallj' all manner of problems. This partic- 
ular evening he had calculated the contents of his own 
corporofity, and llie result gave him such a flatlerint; 
notion of his immensity, thut he determined tu make 
an actual test of it in liquid measure. The consequence 
of this attempted verification was that he savagely re- 
jected the old aphorism, (Imt figures will not lie. In 
this npirited condition, he thought he heard a small, 
squeaky voice, which seemed familiar. He seemed to 
sec liis former acquaintance, the Imp of Doggerel, 
seated astride the pen. ruck. And they resumed (or Mr. 
Q. Quills imagined Ihey did) the conversation left off a 
fortnight before. 

" Have you come at last to give me a lesson in ver- 
nal versification?" inquired Quills. 

" Yes, If you still want me to. But are you willing 
thus to risk your sanity ?" 

" I have decided. Go on !" 
" Your first lesson will be rather elementary. You 
appreciate the importauce of starting correctly. After 
we once get well started, my aim shall be rathi 
move the stunibling blocks from your path, than to lead 
you along by direct assistance. In this lesson, however, 
I shall draw out from you the ideas that are suitable to 
the subject in hand. Now, Mr. Quills, you will pl< 
summon all your notions of spring into the field oft 

" I am ready. Proceed." 
" What do the little birds do in the spring ?" 
" They sing," replies Quills. 
" Bright boy I Go to the head of the class ! You 
might have said with equal truth, that they peep, pipe, 
chirp, twitter, bicker, whistle, scream, squall, 
scream ; but you did not. No, for none of those would 
have rhymed with spring. And of words that do rhyme 
with spring, as ding, ring, string, thing, wing, etc., not 
one is in any way connected with bird, except wing; 
and that constitutes no part of the bird's singing appa- 
ratus. Your readiness lu pickiug out the proper words 
shows that you have a particular aptitude for poetry. I 
think that witli a llllle practice and the acquisition of 
sufficient self-assurance toappear before the public as an 
author, you will easily take rank with Miller, Harte, 
gtuddard, Aldrioh, Whitman, and similar soaring song- 
sters of the American Eagle's propagation. Don't you 
seetD up among the clouds, in anticipation ? But to 
proceed with tliese leading questions, what is the result 
of spring showers 7" 

" Blooming flowers." 

' Correct. What If it rain ?" 
" Growing graiu. Come again." 

" I see that you have caught the Idea. It is as easy 
to catch as the measles. Now if you make mention of 
some lovers, with yonr other material you will have 
ugh to make quite a poem of." 

" My piiniseology might not suit everybody," ob- 
jected Quills. "Would it not be a good scheme to express 
this poem merely lu outline, and leave it to the imagi- 
nation of the reader to All lu the particulars ?" - 
" Let us see what you intend," said the Imp. 
" All right. Here goes.

What do you think of that?" 

" That,'' said the Imp, " Is much better than writ- 
ing the lints out in full. The beauty of poetry is the 
rhyme and the meter. A person, when he has coupled 
together some rhyming words, can make his verses 
more perfect by constructing the remainder of blanks, 
than by using words ; for the blanks take away ail op- 
portunity for strained pronunciations and elisions. 
Some folks hold the erroneous view that lofty and glow- 
ing thought Is the true essence of poetry. But most 
poetry pleases by its music and rhyme; the thought 
being left for the reader to discover. Sometimes the 
cadence of the words, as tmiea from a musical instru- 
ment, excite the imagination, and we seem to detect 
these lofty and glowing thoughts ; but, in my opinion, a 
writer that has any particularly striking thoughts, will 
put it in clear, concise prose, ratlier than in vague and 
misty verse. Most verse Is merely the result of me- 
chanical ingenuity. Moore was accustomed to write 
out his tales In prose, and then slowly transform them 
into verse. Poe worked out The Raven, as he would 
have a Mathematioai problem. So before I come again 
you had >>etter review your Arithmetic." 

" I am thoroughly conversant in Arithmetic," said 
Quills. "Cau't you give me further instruction this

Last year eastern classic circles went into ecstacies 
over tlie Harvard representation of Oedipus, and Justly 
so; for no expenditure of time, pains, and money was 
spared, but that it should be a perfect success. It Is not 
yet done being talked about. An article in the latest 
Century by the coatumer of the Harvard troupe', gives a 
perspicuous description (aided by apt cut«) of the attire 
used by them, and a glowing eulogy on the geueral 
beauty and grace of tbe Grecian drapery. 

Iteproducllons of ancient classic dramas are nothing 
uncoiiituon in English and German universities, where, 
we Atuericans should be ashnmed to confess, the profl- 
ciency iu the dead languages i^ much greater than 
among u». There, before youtlis enter the universities, 
tliey converse readily in Latin—Here, an acqualutance 
with the classical student of to-day, reveals the fact that 
we have lost the approximate perfection, which our 
colonial history shows wo too once had. The " laudator 
lem|)orisacll" can be rebuked and confuted on every 
polul except the advancement of higher education. 

Instead of sitting idle, and bewailing the degener- 
acy of present scholars, we can easily imitate Harvard 
ill giving a new iinpetutLto classic study and literature. 
We do not i»t«nd to urge the claims of classical studies; 
for every classical student appreciates them, aud every 
other person should be ashamed to display Ignorance of 
the ad vantages coming therefrom, by antagonizing their 
study. Buch aperformancess that at Harvard gives more 
new interest in those wonderful ancients, than car-loads 
of catalogues and magazine articles can inspire. And it 
Is not merely for the interest that it would excite in 
favor of the elasaics, that we advocate such a perform- 
ance ia our own university. It would add immensely 
to tbe already wide and favorable reputation that our 
university and professors have the world over. But the 
principal reason Is, that it is easily possible— As to a 
stage aud auditorium, what place could be better than 
our University Hall, which, when one thinks uf it, 
seems especially adapted for such a purpose? As to the 
costumes, our Faculty of the classic languages are fully 
as able as any In the country to Judge what would I « 
suitable for the play we select ; and the expense (J^dg- 
iug from Ibe article in the Century) would not be very 
formidable. As to training, our Greek professors are 
eminently able to act as those to train, while '82 alone 
can easily furnish those to be trained. And we have 
heard our professors and several able studeuts express 
their wililiigness to engage in such a project. As to an 
audience, the classically educated people of Ann Arbor 
and Detroit would make quite a respectable assemblage. 
And crowds of the sous that the IT. of M. has sent forth 
all over this State and region would come flocking back 
to their Alma Mater on such an occasion. While even 
tbe the non-claaaical man's curiosity might lead him to 
go and see the costumes and acting, and hear the chant- 
ing of the choral odes. If our calculations on an audi- 
ence are not wonderfully out, the expense would be a 
minus quantity. And enough students can be found, 
who will undertake the trouble, for the sake of being 
one of the corps. -j- j - - -(->--

not a graduate. To all Ann Arbor students this frieud 
is well known. It is Mr. Joe T. Jacobs. While we are 
very glad to receive this from him, we are sdrry that 
tbe sons of the University should allow hint thus to get 
the start of them. They have been in college anil have 
applied themselves to much In-door work, hen(;e they 
must have felt a longing for some iiealthful, invigorat- 
ing esercise. By gymnasium work a man ia not to be 
developed into an athlete with ontj specialty, but be is 
flrat examined by the leaolier and then directed to a 
mode of exeielse esjieclaily to develop those muscles 
wherein he is most deficient. ThuH by attention he may 
become sountl in all parts, and not strong in some and 
weak in others. Bacon well suys, that " diseases of the 
body may have appropriate exercises : bowling Is good < 
for the Inward parts, shoollng for the lungs and breast, I 
gentle walking fur the stomach, riding for tbe head, and 
the like." Without a guide we are too apt to practice 
only that Id which we are proficient, hence the need of 
appliances and direction in exercise, bo that we may 
build up constitutions strong enough to throw off die- 
ease and sickness. 

With these generous offers the ball ia set to rolling, 
and we hope soon to seethe other eight names standing 
by those of Messrs. Burch and Jacobs. They are pin- 
ueent In this good work, and have opened a way ; it Is 
easy for you to follow, alumni and IViends. 

SOMETHING so nnuNual to ua has just occurred that 
it is worthy of more thiin a passing notice. For the 
Hrst time in our historj we have been nble directly to 
compare ourtiystem of atbletica with that of the older 
institutions east. However, more explicitly we can say, 
it has been a contest between men thoroughly and sys- 
tematlcully drilled and men with pluck and energy but 
unsuOlctently trained. The result has been a natural 
one, and considering the unfavorable clrcumstancee, our 
foot-ball teiim hut> done well. When the eleven men 
from our University, who liave but a few times played 
together and who have not had the advantages of a 
gymnasium, can give the" invincible" Hurvardsabard 
battle, and can prove themselves to be, In the words of 
the Boston Herald. " at least the equals, if not the su- 
jieriors, of the majority of the eastern college teams," 
then we may feel proud of them. Vet it seems tliat 
either their pai-tini success In the flr^t game had demor- 
alized Iheni or that Yale and Friucetnti tiave stronger 
teams, otherwise their subsequent bad defeats are Inex- 

That there had not, previous lo their departure, 
i>een enough enthusiasm on the subject amongst Uni- 
versity men ; that before going there should have been 
more practice together by tbe members of the team, 
and that the team, under the circumstances, should not 
have gone so soon, la now very evident. The summing 
up of the gamot is as follows: At Cambridge— Har- 
vard, 1 touch-down ; Michigan, nothing. At New Ha- 
ven—Yale, 2 goals; Michigan, nothing. At Princeton 
—Princeton, 1 goal and 2 toueU-downs ; Michigan, noth- 

As this is the first time we have measured our mode 
of ploying with those who best know the game, per- 
haps tills is all that could be expected. At any rate the 
ice has been broken, and If the place offered to our team 
in the college league is accepted, an interest will be 
.aroused here, and from all of the <lepartnienta we should 
be able to secure a team which could hold a prominent 
I place amongst college foot- ball players, and at the same 
' time do honor to the University. 

The most of tbe eastern colleges take great intereet 
in foot-laill, and have teams belonging to the Foot-ball 
League, which alternately visit each other and play for 
the college championship. Should our team desire to 
unite with them, it will necessltute their coming west 
and thus give us all a grand opportunity of seeing some 
of the liveliest of that very lively game. As we are 
strong believers in western pluck and endurance, we 
areconfident that after practice we could make an In- 
teresting game, even for the champions. Then, too, it 
would make a common bond of interest to unite tlie 
various departments. Thus there would be more of a 
patriotic and friendly feeling amongst the students, and 
hence more love to the grand old University.

Detallfi or ex-Presldeol Tappan'a last illiiem have 
not yet b«en received ; but tntelllgence cume to uh that 
he expired on Tuceday, the 15th inat., at bis home in 
Vevay, OD the eautern shore of Lalce Leman. The news 
will Tall with the ehocic of a personal sorrow upon the 
hearts of all the older alumni of this T/nlveraity. Sel- 
dom has a college president done moretfnr an institution 
than Dr. Tappan did for bis ; never perhaps was a col- 
lege president more admired and beloved by his pupils. 
To the present generation of students he is simply an 
historical character; but there is perhaps no one of us 
who has not heard glowing accounts of bis personal 
characteristics from some of the older alumni. We are 
told that be was large in stature and had the post of an 
emperor; and that there was In his intercourse with 
students a certain largeness of nature, a certain dignity 
or >>earlng, a certain openness of character, and a certain 
warmth of personal interest that went directly to the 
students' heart. Tlien too coupled with the superb 
qualltlesof his bearing towards his students, there was 
a general impression that be was in some way the em- 
bodied spirit of the University. He was not an equal, 
but a leader among men in college and sivic circles. 
When be came to Ann Arbor he found a mere school ; 
when be went away he left a University. During his 
administration departments were added and courses 
multiplied. The Chemical Laboratory was begun. The 
Scientific and Engineering courses were opened. The 
Observatory was secured and built. The Law depart- 
ment was added. The dormitories were swept away. 
And, most important of oil, public opinion on subjects 
of education was aroused and enliglitened. Thus by 
the energetlt; qualities of his leadership, by the charm 

of his personal presence, and by the frequency and 
striking ability of his utterances on educational topics, 
be made a most powerful Impression on the students 
gathered about him, and on the educational system of 
the State. His figure In bronxe ougbt to have a con- 
spicuous place on thecampus; but whether bis memory

In the first issue of this volume the attention of our 
readers was called to an improvement that the Lecture 
Board mBde,'ln ordertojmake Ihelrentertalnmentsmore 
enjoyable. ThesuccesGand benefit of reserved seats Is no 
longer to be doubted. But during the summer months 
a still greater change has been wrought in another direc- 
tion, which will be especially gratifying to theatre-goers. 
For the last five months workmen have been busily en- 
gaged in repairing and improving Hr. Hill's opera 
house, and the success they have achieved Is truly some- 
thing grand. On entering the house as It now is, no one 
would recognize it as the dingy old theatre of last year. 
Tbe walls tastefully painted in dark, rich colors, the 
celling also Improved in the same manner; the hanT 
unpalnted chairs and benches, replaced by neat, perlb- 
rated opera chairs, and neatly upholstered In the par- 
quet, gives indeed a changed appearance to the bouse. 
Tbe old heating apparatus has been removed, to give 
place to steam. And un the stage, the entire change 
of scenery, and theenlargingof tbe stage Itself will add 
greatly to the charms of many plays. We, as students, 
certainly owe to Mr. Hill a recognition of these improve 
ments, and this recognition surely will not be withheld 
when we consider the class of entertainments that he 
ofilbrs. Such plays as Mrs. Partington and Oalley Slave 
ought always to attract as large an audience aS were pres- 
ent at the presentation of these, and although many 
were disappointed at not seeing Maud Oranger in the 
latter play, it was on account of sickness and not 
through any fault of tbe management that she ftiiled to

R. T. GRAY, Ez-Treararer, 

Mr. Wendling was greeted last nigbt by a fair audi- 
ence, notwlthfitaDding the unfavorable state of the 
weather. His lecture fully equaled the anticipations of 
tiioae who went to hear him. It was an able shcolarly 
address. His manner and delivery were uniformly 
natural and easy. Hie flow of language was' interrupted 
but ODce or twice by a moment of hesitancy, and at 
times be would become truly eloquent. The lecture 
was about two hours long, and tbeattentioD of the audi- 
ence was held throughout. The subject, aa announced, 
was Voltaire, but as Mr. Wendling stated at the begin- 
ning, it was rather Voltalrelsm, and his object was to 
show bow little the great infidel and his modern Imlta- 
tiora have done for tbtf.amelloratlon of mankind, aud 
the folly of looking to them for guidance. The 
speaker began by Baying*_tbat for the evening be 
would lay aside all religious convictions, and requested 
the audience to do the same that tbi^y might examine 
the question without prejudice. He gave an account of 
Votaire'a literary career, his early successes and failures, 
his visit to England, bis connection with Bollngbroke, 
and the English School of LIberaliata, and his life at 
the court of Frederick, the Great. But tbe lecturer's 
object was not so much to review the life of Voltaire as 
to trace tbe influence of his writings on the thought of 
tbe age, and to examine the claims of his disciples of 
the nineteenth century. Leading infldels have always 
been advocates of religious lil>erty, and have claimed 
that their object la the emancipation of the race from 
superstition and bigotry. But these same men are,often 

tbe most Intolerent, condemning all forms of religious 
belief OS superstitious and not aliuwing other men the 
freedom of thought they claim for themselves. In an 
eloquent pasaage he contrasted the philaiitn>phy of the 
stage, as exhibited by modem infidels, with that shown 
by the followers of Chriitt. Wendling closed his 
lecture by declaring that ;he could not accept such 
men for liis gulde.jbut that he was obliged to turn 
Ills eyes to the man of Nazareth whom he oonsldered 
the only truej;utde^to the truth. 

The University Musical Society have been at work 
preparing a number of entertainments for the coming 
season, that, for pure artistic quality and merit, bid fair 
to surpass all their former efTortB. A portion of these 
entertainments, given under the auspices of the society, 
are to be given In a series, styled the Chamber Concert 
Course, and these concerts will be participated In by 
our best local talent and such foreign talent as can not 
fkll to render them interesting and commendable to our 
mualc-loviiig community. Season tickets for the flve 
entertainments are out, and are for sale at Sheehan's 
and by the committee of the Choral Union. These 
tickets are double and single, tbe double admitting two 
to each enterlainment for three dollars, while the single 
tickets admit one at tbe same proportional rate, except 
In case of the pupils of the Ann Arbor Bchool of Music, 
to whom a deduction of one-third Is made, In view of 
the special musical advantages they ought to enjoy at' 
the hands of the community. The number of these 
tickets Is limited ob account of the limited space in the 
hall. The first concert takes place on the evening of 
November 25th, and will be given in the new lecture' 
room of the norlh hall. On account of a general deaire 
on the part of the public, the management have decided ' 
to reproduce on the evening of December Sth, the Ora- 
torio of the Creation, which was given with so much 
success last season. The ability to produce such a work 
in ourUnlvereity Indicates a geuuloe musical culture 
of which we may well feel proud. And further, the' 
Btudents and the community at large are urged to con- 
sider the eflTort made to create and augment a thorough 
musical centre In tbe Univeraity and in the town, and 
the result already achieved In that direction. This 
time the chorus, considerably re-enforced from our own 
midst, will still further be strengthened by a large 
numt)er from the Ypsilanti society, so ttiat it Is expect- 
ed to present to the public of Ann Arbor at this concert 
a well trained chorus of at>out ninety voices. The man- 
agement congratulate themselves on having been able 
to engage the following artists who will appear on this 
occasion. And first is tbe well known Renimertz, who 
gave sucb pleasure last spring in the same performance,, 
and all who heard him then will contemplate with 
pleasure the opportunity, thus aflbrded, forbearing him 
again, for It Is rarely that U)e Becitatives and Arias of 
this masterpiece are rendered with so much flnlsb and

I» uonpequence of tbe renewed Interest In Rugby, a 
combination game was arranged for last Saturday. Ai 
eleven picked ^m tbe Seniors aud Sophomores was 
drawn up against one selected fn>m tlie Juniors and 
Freshmen. Tlie weather was quite cold and the wind 
strong, though In spite of this It was one of tbe prettiest 
games ever played on the campus. In tlie Srst innings 
tbe Junior-Fresh combination obtained a touch-down, 
but before thty bad time to try for goal the referee call- 
ed time. In tbe second Innings there was some sharp 
and brilliant playing, Dott making several of his char- 
acteristic runs, while Wormwood, for the other side, 
made a run of ai>out four-flftbs of tbe field, thus racur- 
lug « touch-down. It was probably tbe finest run ever 
made on tbe grounds. In this Innings tbe Senior-Soph 
eleven made one touch-down and tbe Junior-Fresh 
two, though on account of the wiud none yielded a goal. 
Game decided in favor of Juuior>Fresh by three touch- 
downs to one. 

For severalyearspasttnuch attention bae been call- 
ed to the University as a Christian Institution. It has 
been assailed on diametrically opposite grounds. While 
somehaveacGused tbe University of being IrreliKious and 
inttdel .others have said that toomuch countenance Is giv- 
en to religion. One party has petitioned the state legisla- 
ture to call us to account fbr teaching Christianity ■ the 
other, through the medium of denominational papers, 
has accused usof trying to discourage religion altogether. 
To these accusations our honored President has made 
answers In his last report to the Board of Begeuts, and 
wo give here a brief summary of his argumenL The 
University, In spile of all these charges, has always 
claimed tbe right both to church religion aud maintain 
its Christian character and to do this without exercising 
compulsion or forcing tbe students to any form of relig- 
ious worship. When in accordance with tbe petition a 
committee of the legislature inspected the religious cus- 
toDu of the University, tbey reported that In no man- 
ner was tbe freedom of tbe citizen infringed upon. On 
the other hand tboBe who have tsken tbe trouble to In- 

spect the institution In connection with the opposite 
charge have found us as practically true to the principles 
of Christianity as any other Institution. The Univer- 
sity being a State institution can not of course occupy 
any other ground In respect to religion than that oocu- , 
pied by the S.tate itself. Tlie State of Michigan being a 
Christian State governed by Christian principles, we 
find tiiat in the Uulveraity Christianity is not merely 
tolerated, not merely not proscribed, but Is honored 
and cherished. We have public religious exercises in 
chapel throughout the year, although students are not 
compelled to attend. There are good reasons for this 
freedom. Young men and women of the average age of 
twenty-two can not be elevated In this religious charac- 
ter, by involuntary attendance on religious worship. 
Moreover to make such attendance a condition of enjoy- 
ing the privileges of the University Is a violation of that 
freedom of opinion and conscience inherited by every 
citizen. It Is, too, evident although under this liberty 
tlie number In attendance may be less, the number of 
uctMvi worahippera is quite as great. But mere atten- 
dance on chapel exercises is no criterion of tbe religious 
condition of a University. It depends rather on tbe 
number of voluntary religious organixatlons kept up 
among the students themselves. Such oqfanizatlons 
have existed In the University for manyyears and have 
never been more vigorous and active than at the present 
time. Every possible encouragement Is given them by 
tbe Regents and members of the Faculties, In securing 
to them convenient apartments for their meetings, and 
in countenancing and aiding their eSbrta in tbe course 
of religion and morality. In addition to this It has 
Iwen a long established practice to invite the students 
of all departments to meet Sunday afternoon, twice a 
month, to listen to religious discourses delivered by dif- 
ferent members of tbe Faculties. Attention Is alsoc^led 
to the fact that out of eighty members of the Faculties 
sixty are communicants in the obunibes of the several 
Christian denominations, and seven, though not oom- 
municants are earnest co-workers with tbeae churches In 
their various benevolent operations. As a general thing 
these members of Faculties are among the most active 
and useful members of the churches to which they be- 
long. Every Sunday school In town with one exception 
Is under the s u perl o tendency of some one of them. 
Several of them both clergymen and laymen have often 
been called upon to preach or take part In movements 
for moral improvements and reform. We do not under- 
stand bow an institution wiiose body of teaohera con- 
tain so large a proportion of Christians and of whose 
students thirty-three per cent, aie memtiersof churches, 
can be called unchristian. In whatever way we regard 
It the University of Michigan will be found to be as 
fully in accord with Christian principles as any Institu- 
tion In the country. The only difference Is we do not 
try to parade our religion before the world.

The position which Ooethe is entitled to occupy In 
the literary world is not appreciated by most Amer- 
icans. Until late years not very much attention haa 
been given to the study of German literature, and even 
DOW this study Is, as we might say, in Its Infant?. 
Th«re Is hardly a German author that is not worth some 
attention ; but Goethe stands as far above his fellows 
that he should receive most careful study. Not only is 
he superior to all German authors, but, in our opinion, 
his equal cannot be found In the literary history of any 
oonntry since the thne of Shakespeare. Hesurpawes 
them all in grace of style, beauty of sentlmeut and 

depth of thought. Students of Ooethe will, we think, 
agree wltb us in this estimate of him ; and we propose 
now to give a short sketch of his character and literary 
work, with the hope that It may induce others to glvp 
his works the attenUon tliey deserve. 

Previous to the time of Goethe there was no recog- 
nised German literature. The French language was 
considered the language par excellence, and all litera- 
ture waa based upon the rules of the French literature, 
artificial as they were. Attempts had been made by 
Klopstock, Leasing and others, to throw off these 
restrictions and produce a German literature. But,' 
since they followed the forms of the classical French 
and Italian literature and tried to to engraft them upon 
the German language, their attempts naturally lulled. 
When Goethe appeared upon the scene there was but 
one writer who had, In any measure, succeeded in doing 
what Leasing had tried to do. This was Herder. He 
bad succeeded In giving to German prose higher quali- 
ties than any previous writer, Goethe, however, hav- 
i ng the l^eneflt of his predecessors' experience, succeeded 
where they blled. He formed the German language 
and showed the possibility of a beautiful and elegant 
literature In that language. His Influence In this direc- 
tion cannot be over estimated. His prose became the 
recognised standard in Germany, and all other prose 
writings were Judged by comparison with his. His 
style became the criterion of literary excellence, and by 
the early part of the preeent century the language be 
employed had become the established Idiom. " It was 
Goethe's verses wblcb made Schiller's flow; and he 
lent to Bcblegel the fulness whereby he converted 
Shakespeare atmoet Into a German poet." 

There Is no author except Shakespeare who fhowa 
such a " many aided " mind as Goethe ; and even 
Shakespeare shows It In a less degree than Qoetbe. 
Shakespeare's mind could apprehend and understand 
all phases of human life and character; but Ooethe 
ooniblned with this power that of understanding and 
Interpreting nature. Human nature and physical na- 
ture were alike understood by him. Although he was, 
In the truest sense of the word, a poet, he was no 
dreamer. Science, politics, diplomacy— all were within 
the range of bis mind. HU power of Imagination and 
analysis were equally strong, but he kept themseperate 
exoept in so far as one aided the other. He oouid turn 
from the ecientiflc study of the rose and write a t>eau- 
tifbl poem in honor of the flower. He could, at the same 
time, In smooth flowing vereea, express the moat beau- 
tiful and the most philosophical sentiments. He was 
sentimental ; but his sentiment was of that kind that 
can appreciate and express the varying emotions of the 
human heart without being ridiculous. His mind was, 
so to speak, cast In the universal mould. He was at 
once a deep thinker, a sound reasoner, and a keen ob- 
server of men aud things. He was, in short, a philo- 


The Chronicle. 

Bopblcsl poet; but he eo combined phlloeopby and 
poetry that in his hands they became one. 

Goethe poeeeBsed one very striking peculiarity. 
Whenever he was under the influence of any great 
entbusiaam or emotion he was not satlffied until he had 
given them some verbal expreeslon. It la to this that 
we owe many of hie worke. They are tbe outpourings 
of his own troubled soul. Qoethe was a man of much 
doubt, notwithstanding his strength of mlud. Hie life 
both aa a writer and as a man was oDe ot continued 
, earnetit striving towards the highest excellence. He 
was always striving for something hlgberand better; 
and when, at last, be recognized the futility of his 
struggles, he gave vent to his feelings In the Immortal 
drama of J^tisl. Indeed, in nearly every one nf 
Goethe's dramas and novels it is Ooeihe himself who 
speaks to us. It Is this characteristic of his writings 
that brings them so near to us. They appeal to the 
heart as much as to the mind and perhaps more. His 
poetry is not " divine ; " It Is thoroughly human. In it 
we can see not only Qoethe the poet, but also Goethe 
the man. He speaks to us as a trusting and trusted 
friend. We sympathize with him and feel tliatbe»<ym- 
pathlzes with us in all those doubts and fears wiilch 
trouble the human heart. As Carly le (laya : " Goethe's 
poetry Is no separate Itaculty, no mental handicraft, but 
the voice of the whole harmonious mauhuod ; Day, it is 
the very harmony, the living and life-giving baniiony 
of that rich manhood which forme his poetry." 

We have said above that Goetbe Is uiiequaled by 
any author since the time of Shakespeare, and the com- 
parison there implied we now wish to distinctly slate. 
Goethe can be compared only to sueh writers as Shake- 
speare, Dante and Homer. Yet he is difTerent from 
these and, In a certain sense, grealertban they. Homer 
is specially epic; Bhakeepeare la specially dramatic; 
while in Qoethe we find a blending of the two. Most 
men reach success through concentrated etfbri; Id one 
direction ; but with Qoethe the rule was reversed. The 
broader bis fletd of action, the more splendid his 
achievements. In one way Qoethe was above Shake- 
speare, and that Is In elegance of expression and 
breadth of thought. Qoethe, however, cannot be said 
to he a successful dramatist. He lacked two of tlie 
esseni iai elements of dramatic success— Inventive genius 
and rapidity of movement. Those of his plays which 
are Intended for the stage are the poorest. As a writer 
of dramatic poems we doubt If he has an equal. Qoelz 
vtm Berlichingen and I^mont, although possessing much 
merit, cannot be said to be successful. On the otber 
hand, Iphigenie, TaMo, and Hermann ».nd Dorothea 
are successful in every sense of the word. In delinea- 
tion of character Goethe is surpassed by none. He 
breathes Into each of his cbaracters the breath of life, 
BO that they appear before the reader as living, moving 
realities. There la nothing artificial about them— nctb- 

ing strained. His characters can always be understood. 
Nearly all his prominent characters embody some noble 
idea. We do not flud the principle of evil given a 
prominent place butlnonecase— tbatof Mephlatopheles 
—and even here it is to make the good more vivid by 
contrast. Where can we find more noble female char- 
acters than Iphigenia, Dorothea, and Margaret; where 
finer manly types than Goetz, Orestes, and above all, 
Faust. We think we are Justified In saying that In all 
dramatic literature of whatever age or country there is 
no character that can compare wilh Faust. He has a 
reulity possessed by no other. Hamlet la the only one 
that in any way approaches him. 

As in ilia delineationof character, so too, Goethe baa 
no equal In modern literature In his power of picturing 
nature. We say In modern literature because the poetic 
appreciation of nature has grown up with modern liter- 
ature. Cowper, Wordsworth, Byron, Shelly— none of 
tbem are equal to Goethe. His love of nature amounted 
to adoration. He wan keenly seusitive to its beauty, but 
his appreciation was not confined to the merely superfi- 
cial aspects; it penerated deep Into itsheart. He presents 
nuture to us not as a '' mere catalogue of forma," but tn 
all the varying and elusive aspects given by atmosphere, 
color, light and shade. What a rich and varied land- 
scape he paints for us In Faust's walk with Wagner ! 
How lie brings before our eyes the picture of a spring 
day wlien man and nature, both clothed in holiday 
attire, are rejoicing In the warm, mellow Bunshlne I In 
no language have we found anylbing that can equal it. 
To Ooetbe, nature Is an open bouk revealing the work- 
ings of the Infinite Power; in nature he saw the embod- 
iment of Divine Intelligence, and It Is In this spirit that 
he pictures nature In his works. 

Whatever may be the opinion of coming ages Inre- 
gard to Qoethe, he certainly now holds the highest posi- 
tion in modern Ulerature. We can say this not only so 
far as German literature Is concerned, but all literature, 
for Ooetbe is essentially cosmopolitan. He has the 
power of reaching the heart of every man whatever 
may be his nationality. We cannot better close this 
short sketch than by the following quotation from 
Oarlyle : " Certainly there Is not, probably there never 
was in any European country, a writer who with so 
cunning a style, and so deep, so atistruse a sense, ever 
found BO many readers. From tbc peasant to the king, 
^m the callow dilettante and Immorato, to the grave, 
transcendental philosopher, men of all degrees and dis- 
positions are familiar with the writings of Ooetbe ; each 
studies them with atTection, with a faith which, when 
it falls to unriddle, learns to trust; each takes with him 
what he Is adequate to carry, and departs thankful fur 
his allotment." .,- - - - ,-

aball We Join the Leagne? 

The eventa or the past few weeks huve been Buffl- 
cieot to arause cnnshlersble entbuHiasm among students 
iu the forinatioii of a strong foot-ball team. From the 
results of the games recently plaj ed tn the eaut, there 
can be but one conclusion, and that is that with proper 
training and practice we have right here, in this greatest 
ioatitutlon of learning in the west, Diuterial fnr a foot- 
bail team that cannot only equai any team In the coun- 
try, hut In all probability carry off the championship 
of the Inter-collegiate league. 

Your correepundent has iiad an opportunity of ood- 
versiDg with different membera of the team lately gent 
east, and It seems to be the opinion of all, that we 
do much better, If the opportunity should ever present 
Itself again. The Boston dailies are lavish In their 
praise of the playing qualities of our team, while 
Princeton students say that rarely, if ever, have they 
seen aa fine a set of " tacklers." 

Now here is a game In which we can, as every one 
wilt admit, make a respectable showing in comparison 
with other first claas eolleges. Why then should we 
not embrace the opportunity and not let our enthusi- 
asm, however little it may be, die out? In the matter 
of boating we can tJo noting, as we have not the natural 
advantages for such sport. There then remain only 
two other sports, which may be termed characteristic 
college games— base-bail and foot-bail. While there b 
no doubt but that we could secure a first clans nine 
among the students, still It is a mournful ttusl that we 
do not " take to " base-ball, and It Is next to impossible 
to arouse any interest in It. We then Lave Rugby alone 
!eft ta us in which to win fame and reputation. 

Aa is well known to most students, we have now a 
clmnce of Joining the Foot Ball League, and it is our 
opinion that some action should he taken soon. There 
seems to be an opinion among many that the Atculty 
will oppose any measure looking to an action by which 
a few students would be compelled lo lose a few days of 
college work. Perhaps we are wrong In anticipating 
the action of the faculty ; but, nevertheless, we can not 
refrain from setting forth our reasons why the faculty 
should give iU consent to our Joining the league. We 
learn that several professors have been of late discoun* 
tenancing any furi.her movement in sending teams 
away, even threatening their uncompromising opposi- 
tion to such schemes in the future. Bnt, then, there 
are always some men who believe In a system of gov- 
ernment of a college similar to that of a ward school. 

Although we are not la a position to have a class 
spirit, still we can and ought to cultivate a university 
aplrit, one which will make us have a deep feeling of 
love for our Alma Mater, when we have gone forth 
ftom her walls ; and especially a spirit which will cause 

us to be active alumni, always doing what we can for 
the Interests of the University. This can only be 
brought atraut by some bond of union, as was well said 
In one of the editorials in the last Ohruniclb. If we 
are never to be engaged as other colleges In such mat- 
ters as that of which we are speaking, many of us will 
seldom hear of our great University after leaving It. 

In all probability many of the alumni of this Uni- 
versity have seen newspaper notices of the recent games, 
and have had their hearts touched with pride at the 
recollection of their grand old University. As was said 
by one of the professors a short time ago, there is very 
little in our western collies to inspire respect for one's 
aima mater; and nothing, In fact, to cause us to remem- 
t>er it, other than the place where we received our edu- 

We are not contending that, as small children, we 
ought to be rewarded for any little act of self restraint ; 
but we do claim that the students, in cheerfully acquies- 
cing to the wishes of the faculty In regard to rushing, 
acted so In good spirit, and One which showed that tiiey 
were in favor of good order and an at)andonnientof 
those practices which might possibly bring discredit 
upon the Unlveratty. Now then, when it Is the unani- 
mous desire of the students that the faculty not only 
give their consent, but even 'encourage our legitimate 
and manly sports-^uch as our fbot-ball projeots — we 
think it decidedly Illiberal for them to oppose it. 

We understand that those professors, who have 
spoken of the matter, did so upon the ground that thir- 
teen or fourteen students would lose a few weeks of col- 

esrary to ask for about ten days of absence during the 
whole year; and as a good proportion of the team will 
come from the professional schools, we think that the 
objection is not valid, especially since nearly twice that 
amount of time is lost by the delegates of the various 
secret societies attending their conventions. 

The Tlianksglving game between Princeton and 
Yale has come to be one of the notable eventaofthe 
year. This game Is played at New York, and the net 
proceeds to each club are between four and five hundred 
dollars. At that rate where would our "gym" fund 
swell to? Why could we not arrange to play such games 
with Racine every year during the Thanksgiving re- 
cess, at Chicago? Surely, If the faculty will allow i^s 
to make a reputation east, the Chicago games would be 
a success financially. 

We hope that the Athletic Association will take this 
matter of Joining the league In hand, and present it to 
the faculty iu as strong a light as possible. We can not 
think that the majority of our faculty will be so narrow- 
minded as to refuse a request which la granted by all of 
the eastern colleges. The question of what the faculty 
may do Is only mentioned because lately some of the 
professors In speaking of the league, have shown a nar- 
row-minded ne^ts only equalled by the weak and silly 
attempt of Dr. UoCoeh to attoUsh secret societies. >

HERETOFOBE it lien been unforlunBt« for the ene- 
cewor a needrul rerorni that wliile favored by a 
lar^eniajorilynf our tliinklng'iuen in private iife, tbe 
power to inaugurate it hae been with tbot>e in office who 
fear it will take Trom their Influence. Tbey too recog- 
nize Ihe advantages to be obtained from a change in the 
method of appointments to our civil service, but even 
the least sagacious of our congressmeu look forward to 
" an IndorBement of their course" In tlie ehape nf a re- 
turn to their seats, and they now think to bind Influen- 
tia) constituents to then) by appointing xome of their 
Mends to a govemmenlal position. In other words, 
with money from the United Btates treasury they will 
buy the support of men able to reelect them. Thus Is 
there an untiring scramble for ofllce, not as a reward of 
merit, but as the result of patronage. These very men 
who hold the offices at their bestowal are beginning to 
feel that they are pay log dearly for the benefits Buppnsed 
to come from a Judicious placing of public ofBces. They 
are harrassed night and day by tbe repeated Importuni- 
ties, even ofmen unknown to them; they seldom return 
home for a respite but that their welcome Is broken in 
upon by a pitiful story of unrewarded service or expect- 
ant want; they return to their duties and the malls un- 
kindly deluge them with petitions tbey dread to read. 
There are no more vacapt places, but does that matter ? 
They have dogged the departments until they are 
ashamed t« he eeen longer prowling about, but isn't 
thereroom foronemore? Their time Is demanded for 
tbe affitlrs of State, but this case is so urgent. How as- 
toDlsbing It Is that independent, conscientious states- 
men will submit to this I 

But if this were tbe only evil, happy would be the 
country ! It ia when we see Ignorant servility crooking 
its band for bribes In the custom-house ; it Is when 

behold arrogant ^elf- Imports nee denying ba aooommo- 
datlons in tbe poAt-otBce ; It is when Incompetent men 
sneak into positions of truxt In tlie departtncnls, anvl 
competent men, who perliapa have served their country 
on the battte-tleld, are discharged without cause, It Is 
then there goes up a cry fora reform which must come. 
Wecannot describe the present method of appointmeota 
better than In the words of Qarfleld when he said; 

<e working hours of Heimkin Knd RepraMmta- 
tlvea 1i hnrdly Bufttelent lu meet the demandii madeapon them In 
rrrprenre to appiilntmeiila lo olllcs. The present ajiatem Impalni

and nunlimpemUtit ilutitM qf ttaleamajuhip.'* 

Nothing further need be said concerning tbe evils 
attending our present system. PresldentsOrant, Hayes, 
Garfield and Arthur have opposed It with their Influence 
but the power that must cruHh it Is Congress. Postutas- 
ler James and Collector Arthur have made the reforms 
of Ihe civil service a success in their respective depart- 
ments but It remains for Congress to make this benefi- 
cial measure a general one. 

However, even In the legislative halls at Washing- 
ton some move has been made to bring about the much 
desired change. Mr. Pendleton has introduced a bill 
prepared afler much study of the EngllHh system as well 
as of the method pursued In the New York post-offlce 
and custom-house. It provides for the appointment of 
five commhaioners, who shall institute open competl 
tlve examinations for all applicants to the public ser- 
vice, and that not only appointments, but also promo- 
tions shall be decided by these teste. Upon pasalug an 
examination the person is employed on protwIloD, after 
which, if his work Is satisfactory, be Is appointed to a 
position where be is never troubled by contributions to 
political funds; where he does not have to render puilt- 
icalaervice, and where tlierelano fearof a removal with- 
out cause. With such a stimulus the cause of educa- 
tloD, with us would be greatly advanced, forwhereboys 
now Intended for clerical work under the government 
luay obtain apposition hy the Influeuceof friends, not 
by showing a fitness for theofllce, but with appoint- 
ments founded on the solid basis of merit, the hoy would 
be induced to study and to makehimself worthy of trust. 
This gives him Independence, not servile reliance. Af- 
ter gaining his place, when there are vacancies al»ve 
him he has an opportunity of trying for tbe position. 
If It is In him be may reach the lop. This gives him 
hope, not plodding despair. 

These things are beginning to be realized by our 
cItUens and it is with pleasure that all over the country 
we see the formation of so many societies, and the 
cotiperatiou of so many InfluenUal men in tbe laten^te 
ofclvH service reform. .. - - - - fx- -

Young Cupid was his mother's Joy. 

Acblld of niOElbewllcblntc looks; 
And yet he was a naughty boy, 

Because he would not mind his books. 

Bome things he studied well, 'tis true, 
For what be knew he got by heitrt. 

And leHrned to practice al I he knew ; 
So everybiidy called him smart. 

Co-education csme In vogue — 

The new Idea pleased him well, 
" Now, lads and lassoii," llMped the rogue, 

" I'll teach you nil lo love a spell." 

Such words as "dear." "dlvlnest," " maid," 

My " angel," " sweetheart." " darling," " dove," 

Thesebool soon learned— they even played 
With letters— letters learned to love. 

The teacher taught the "Rule of Three:" 
They asked was there no " Rule of Two," 

8besald,"0h.nQl tbat could not he," 
But Cupid sold there was, he knew. 

Geography seemed poatlma gay : 

The lads (bund "Naney." "Charlotte." "Ann:" 
The maidens soon fonnd " Lover's Bay," 

Then "Hearl'sContent,"- the"IsIeot M&D." 

Dull grammar grew as sweet as song. 

That nouns have genders all cnntd see, 
That adjectives lo nouns belong, 

And nouns and certain verba agree. 

"This verhlsftollve." whispered John; 

" I love dear Jane— this tells the truth." 
Blushing, she pointed further on: 

" Passive, fur you are loved, dear youth." 

" I would be loved." hummed Mabel J. 

" Ah 1 that's tbe mood I" spoke Tommy S.

Thegymnaslam may seem to somea trite tlieme for 
the coluuis of a live college paper like The Chboniclg, 
but Buch ahouM bear in mind that tlila ina subject wblcli 
should be ever before us, and tLat The Chronicle 
ought not to bebehindtheotherassoctationHin keeping 
up the interest in tbls topic. The Athletic Association 
does its best, asdoes the Lecture Board to bring about;t)ie 
erection of agymnasiuni, to excite outside interest in the 
project and to bring outitide raooey Into the coffers of 
the " fund." A little has been accomplished In the last 
direction ; but so very little that, if we shall be obliged 
to rely upon outside help, the sinews of several succeed- 
ing generations will have ta remain lax and their uus- 
cles soft for all the gymnasium we shall have here. 
And what is the reason for this? Simply that the stu- 
dents themselves do not take enough Interest in the 
matter. Everyone bewails the fact that we have no 
building here to exercise in, and everyone wonders why 
some rich alumnus, like Brush of electric light fame, 
does not endow a suitable institution. But who would 
wish to give money to found such an institution when it 
eeems as if no use would ever be made of it when found- 
ed? Let the students make useof their campus. Let 
them join the Athletic Association and remembering 
the motto meru >aria tn corpore sano, enter into the 
diflbrent sports on Field-Day and take an active 
interest in athletics. Then some interest will be 
taken in the work by the alumni. The sending of a 
foot-ball team eaiit this bll was one step in Ihe right di- 
rection ; but enough interest was not taken even In this 
step. Every athlete in college, eve^ man who can kick 
a foot-ball should have practiced daily on the campus, 
BO that a truly representative team might have been 

chosen. Yet, even as It was, we have no donht that this 
team has done more to excite Interest in athletics and 
hence in the gymnasium, than all the proclamations, 
posters and appeals to the alumni that have been issued 
In tlic past two or three years. Let the Athletic Associ- 
ation continue in the good work; let games be arranged 
between classes and between departments. Then let a 
team be sent east every year, and before long — maybe 
when our children are in college— our campus will be 
adorned by a handsome building devoted to exercise 
and health, and Che student of the future will praise tbe 
Athletic Aasoclallou which sent their flrst foot-ball team 
to play with the colleges of the east. 

On Friday, November 25th, the Alpha Nu literary 
society gave its annual Thanksgiving entertainment. 
Some were green enough to be deceived by the announce- 
ment of a supper; but If any present made such a mis- 
take, they certainly did not lose by it, for, in general, 
the exercises were good. The declamation was fairly 
rendered, and it showed a desire to try, which is a 
good omen for improvement. The debate, considering 
that tbe speeches, as usual, had not been written, was 
excellent. In this extemporaneous speaking, of course, 
grammatical mistakes are, for beginners, almost una- 
voidable, and one of the debaters, making use of very 
long and Involved sentences, increased this natural dif- 
ficulty. Both however, kept their train of ideas. One 
criticism might he made on all the speakers, namely, 
that not one has a strong clear voice. A little vocal 
practice would do a great deal of good in this direction, 
and especially tosomeof those who came after the de- 
bate. Of these Mr, M. K. Brown gave a speech on soup, 
which reminded one of the Burlington Uawkeye man. 
It excited great laughter and was exactly what was 
wanted. A poem by Mr. Murphy had some good 
thoughts as well as poor expressions. The rest of the 
entertainment was composed of speeclies that were brief 
and in some cases, witty. The interest taken in literary 
societies here, where a large majority of the students 
never enter their balls, points out a difTerence be- 
tween large and small colleges. It is well kiiown that 


The Chronicle. 

the qoality of cla^R-rooiu work done here greatly excels 
that OBuaDy doDein email institutions. But ineomeof 
of the QumerouB colleges in Ohio, for instance, there is 
vastly greater stimulus to original work. At Antioch 
nearly every student belongs to a literary society. And 
with no disparagement to our own intended, weinu8t|say 
that the quality of this work done there, was, at least 
some five years ago, very much better than any we see 
here. Scenes from Shakespeare used to be acted fre- 
quently, and, on special occasions, one of his plays en- 
tire. Critical essays, which did not content themselves 
with vague generalities, were coojmon. The tendency 
here is toward acquiring facility, rather than depth. No 
one would think of bringing out an elaborate play here. 
The reason is partly that the students here are harder 
worked, and that there Is generally greater ambition to 
excel in the class-room work, than zeal for real self- 
improvement. But Ihe greatest cause is the general 
want of interest in the societies on the part of ths stu- 
dents. If the meetings were betler attended, the enter- 
tainments would be improved. This university has a 
large number of earnest and Hmbltious students, and we 
cannot but tiilnk that they are wrong in devoting all 
tbeir energies to gaining knowledge without cultivating 
the power of easily and gracefully imparting it toothers. 

It is not our desire to appear iu the role of fault-find- 
ers, yet In the late Athletic Association election we were 
pained to see such a lack of Interest in its aflkirs. 
Hardly more than thirty members of the association 
put in an appearance at the appointed time, and after 
the meeting was called to order, the election was hurried 
through with In amannertliat augurs ill for success and 
enthusiasm In our sports. The choice of ofilcers, with 
one exception, was made from but one faction, and on 
this account, therefore, the other side will feel less In- 
clined to support the adiuinisration, than they would, if 
they had a Just representation of officers. Again, it is 
to be regretted that the choice of officers was only made 
from one department. This association is supposed to 
be a University one, and for this reason, if for no other, 
its officers should be elected from the University at large; 
then University interest would he aroused, and each 
department would vie with the others In rendering tlieir 
portion of the board of control the most efficient. The 
election from the literary department, gives to the liter- 
ary Btudentaan egotistic air that HI becomes them. We 
cannot believe that this department alone contains ex- 
ecutive ability, and indeed It seems t" us, that If the 
officers of the Athletic Ai^soclation were elected from all 
departments and both parties, we would be assured of 
procuring, more often than by the old method, the right 
men In the right places. We commend these few re- 
marks to the earnest consideration of our political man- 
agers, with the hope that they may be able to profit by

This paragraph, which appeared In our last issue in 
Things Chronicled, has occasioned some discussion, for 
it was known that Dr. Angell did not leave Shangliai 
till October lOth. The press dispatch bringing Informa- 
tion of tiie hospital opening and the speech, was tele- 
graphed from Hong Kong, and so it was supposed the 
celebration had occurred there; hut later information 
removes all dlfHculty by slating that it was the hospital 
at Tientsin. Mention Is also made of the presentation 
of a pair of elolsoun^ vases by the English and Ameri- 
can Missionary Association of I'ekin, to Minister An- 
gell with an address approving of his official course, 
particularly of his action concerning the importation of 
opium, and his success In freeing the missionaries and 
Chinese converts from the burdensome and degrading 
taxes they have hitherto been forced to pay toward the 
support of IdolalrouB festivals. The steamer with Presi- 
dent Angell and family after leaving Shanghai touched 
at Hong Kong, Saigon, Singapore, Point de Galle, Aden 
and Suez. We have during the past week beard of his 
safe arrival at Naples, and, although the University has 
not suffered in his absence, every professor and every 
student is filled with the heartiest desire to welcome our 
distinguished President to the home in which he finds 
his greatest usefulness and pleasure. 

Not often do we find a person who will confess that 
he does not love what he calls "good music," but a 
Caste for and a true appreciation of genuine artistic mu- 
sic is seldom found among those who have not given 
especial attention to the subject, or who have not heard 
a great deal of the music. It was with the purpose of 
giving all who desire to educate themselves in this di- 
rection that the University Musical Society decided to 
give a series of four Chamber Concerts. The flrstcon- 
cert of the series, given last Friday evening, iu the new 
hall in the north wing, was a great success. Through 
some mistake no programmes were on hand, but the 
lack of them was more than compensated for by the 
short analyses of the works given by Prof. Cady, as he 
announced each number. The first number was aatrtng 
quartette by Haydn, and was finely performed by a De- 
troit quartette. Prof. Schullz, of the School of Music, 
playing the flrat violin. The last movement, especially, 
was delightful. Then followed a violin solo by Prof. 
Scbullz, and a piano solo by Miss May, both of whom 
gave one the idea that they were not trying to show off 
their skill nor to win applause, but were simply endeav- 
oring to give an honest interpretation of the music. 
Oue of the finest things of the evening was an Ave 

The Chronicle. 


Marlft by Cherubim, sung by Miss Winchell, with the 
accompanimeut of the xtring quartette. Although we 
have heard her orten, we never heard her sing more 
beautirully or with greater expression. The programme 
closed with string a quartette by Schubert and a trio by 
Beethoven, for piaao, vloUn, and 'cello. Such a pro- 
grHmme affi^rds a strong contrast to those given us thia 
year even by troupea of considerable reputation — a con- 
trast, too, that Is not altogether favorable to the said 
troupea. Buch concerts cannot fail to elevate the tone 
of true musical feeling in the University and thus 
throughout the State, Of course at a concert given in 
tbla way we cannot expect auch finished execution as 
has been shown by some of the professional players 
who have visited u-t lately, but In the selection of the 
works rendered this concert was far better than any- 
thing that we have heard since Wilhelmj at least. The 
next concert will be a piano recital by Mr. Sherwood, of 
Bnston, an artist of extended and growing reputation. 
We can promise that his programme will be fully aa 
good as that of tbe last concert. 

It has come and gone, Wa can no longer look fur- 
ward with pleasant anticipation to the Gary Concert. 
Yet everyone, though entirely satisfied with the concert 
as a whole, cannot but feel Ihat there was something 
lacking, and that something was Annie Louise Cary. 
The concert Is advertised aa a " Qrand Concert by Misa 
Annie Louise Cary, assisted by tbe Boston Temple 
Quartette," and from auch a title we certainly have tbe 
right to expect that MIsa Cary would take a very promf- 
nent part. Yet on a programme of eleven pieces. Miss 
Cary has only two solos! It Is not that we objected to 
the Quartette, which was truly excellent, but that we 
wanted to hear Miss Cary ofteuer; in this respect we 
were gratified by her kind responses to the many en- 
cores. She was la excellent voice, and admirably filled 
the large hall with her full, rich voice. The scope of 
her voice and tbe fullness and roundness of both her 
high and low notes are only excelled by the sweetness of 
her middle tones. Her first selection, from Verdi, 
rendered in good style, but did not please as well 
as her encore, " Better Bide A'wee ;'' but In 
this piece Miss Cary took the liberty of changing one 
fo the finishing notes, thus spoiling one of the finest of 
the concluding phrases. It was, however, in Marston' 
" Tender and True" that Miss Cary made her greatest 
ImpressioQ. It was given in a manner with which we 
can find no fault. But Misa Cary showed by her rendi- 
tion of "Suwanee River," that she was not above out 
old popular airs. The Temple Quartette are an attrac- 
tion In themalves, and deserve great praise for the way 
In which they sang without accompaniment. They 
kept well together, harmonized almost perfectly, and 
only Qatted in one or two plaeea. Their points of expres- 
bIoq are singularly strong and varied, and they give a 

greater variety in this respect than is generally heard 
even in the most highly cultivated quartettes. The low 
notes of Mr, Ryder, the basso, were very fine, and pre- 
sented a foundation for the sweet tenors of Messrs. 
Parker and Want, such as is rarely heard. The " Reoor- 
dare" of Beethoven was, perhaps, their best selection. 
It is full of sweet and difSjult harmonies, which were 
rendered in an almost perfect manner. However, they 
made a very poor choice and also showed bad taite. in 
selecting the humerous glee, as one of their pieces. 
When a quartette has such talent and ability as the 
Boston Temple Quartette, It Is a disgrace and a shame 
that they should waste It in presenting such pieces aa 
" Jack Horner," Tbe event of the evening was Abt'a 
" On tbe Water," rendered by MIsa Cary and the Quar- 
tette, in which Miss Cary took the air, with a soft ac- 
companiment by the Quartette. In this aria Miss 
Cary's voice aounded even sweeter, if this is possible, 
than in ber other selections, Mr, Peterailea well sus- 
tained his reputation as one of our finest pianists. His 
execution of Henselt'a " Danklied nach Sturm" was 
fair, and was evidently encored, so that we might hear 
the " something more pleasing." It was " The Brook," 
which was executed in fine style. The air was clearly 
and strongly brought out by the left hand, while the 
right performed a brilliant obligato accompaniment. 
But there was no occasion for a second encore ; but part 
of the audience, probably induced by the gentle hint 
given before the Danklied, saw fit to call him out once 
more. This habit of encoring, as carried on in Univer- 
sity Hall, la greatly tu be condemned. We ll)te to aee 
merit recognized, but it la altogether too much to 
lengthen a fair sized programme to double or even treble 
Its original length. Tbe poor Judgment of our audi- 
ences in thia respect has been shown again and again. 
Only two weeks ago It was exhibited when a second- 
rate violinist was recalled several times to play trash, 
while good sinsrers were passed by with scarcely any 
recognition. Last night it was only shown In the ex- 
cessive recalls given to Mr. Petersilea, while Mr. Want's 
fair rendition of " The Sailor's Grave " was barely ap- 
plauded. However, in tbe main we have to thank the 
Lecture Board for having brought an exceptionally fine 
concert to A.nn Arbor. 

In answer to the many expressions of desire to ex- 
amine our college exchanges. The CHBOificLB has 
decided to place them in the general reading-room. Tbe 
editors have long wished a place that would be conveni- 
ent for meeting, and where an occaaional hour during 
the week could be passed in writing up copy, or by any 
student in acquainting himself with the doings of Bis- 
ter unlversltlea. While weary enough of the aggrava- 
tion attending so mucb running ai)out as la necessary 
now, we are happy to aay that we can afiTord to every 
I one the pleaaure of obtaining access to exchanges.

If one IBBD la self-made, we tblnk all are. If any 
of the men whose names in huge eapitala adorn the 
pages of history, whether those on which the ink is long 
since dry, or those which Time and Fate are even now 
printing ; if any of the men whose praises are oftenest 
on the lips of Fame have carved for themselves the ex- 
alted pedestals upon which they stand, so has every so- 
cial outcast and every criminal in our prisons digged for 
himself the loathsome cess-pool of misery Into which 
he has thrown his decaying carcass. 

We are all self-made men, or all creatures of circum- 
stances. Do not think, however, that you must prepare 
yourselves for a long discussion in determi nation of the 
the question whether "circumstances make the man" 
or vice versa ; such a preparation is unnecessary. That 
Is a question buried too deep in the uninviting ruins of 
hundreds of debating societies to admit of our digging 
up it« poor bones and rattling them here. Moreover, we 
»re but a sorry grave-digger. We will say a "requiescat" 
over the grave and pass on by another path. 

By another path ; for have we not all of us become 
rather unpleasantly familiar with the sign -post« along 
that well-trodden and uninteresting road that we have 
reluctantly traveled " from our youth up," In company 
with our parents or other persona with an equally warm 
interest In our welfare, and, in consequence, an eiiually 
inexhaustible fund of old fogyish advice about "self- 
help," etc.? 

Our subject is hackneyed from having been made 
the text of many a sermon. But our aim is not to ser- 
monize. Inasmuch as we take a different view of the 

subject than do the above-mentioned astute sermoQl- 

The self-made man— who is he ? What Is he? and 
what la hla true position among the powers of the age ? 

In laying out this subject for dissecting, it is of 
prime importance that we see clearly what Is before ua. 
The phrase is an ambiguous one. It may include char- 
acters alike in some outward traits, yet essentially and 
widely different. In one sense of the term, we cannot 
but regard the aeif-made man as the nuisance of the 

The language is often employed to denote not so 
much the Inward state or culture as the outward fashion 
through which it has been attained. But In this sense, 
the term cannot, with logical strictures, be applied to 
that peculiar constitution we have under consideration, 
Inasmuch as it represents nothing essential thereto. 

It may be best, then, lo determine who the self- 
made man Is not. The name is oft-times given to the 
truly noble person who has received an education in 
the Bchools, but through pecuniary means that were the 
fruit of his own exertions, or over even the stonier road 
of patient privations. This Is not the self-made man, 
and the term so applied is a gross misnomer, denoting a 
mere accident of life. Instead of essential character. 

This essential of the spiritual state does not at all 
depend on the fact of a man's having " gone through 
college," as the phrase goes. He may have had this ad- 
vantage and still come forth one of the most odious 
specimens of this mischievous genus. He may have 
gone through college and yet have been made, or made 
Ainisf^, througli other means than close converse with 
those studies that bring the mind into close communloa 
with the best thinking. Observation will show that 
our colleges are beglnniug to turn out a good deal of 
this sort of self-made article. 

He may, on the other hand, have never been within 
the walls of a literary institution, and yet be possessed 
of an extensive, a thorough, and, at the same time, 
thoToaably congervatliK culture, in all respects the op- 
posite of that obtained by many a one who flaunts his 
bachelor's or master's degree. And here let us say, that 
there is at the present day too much of that dangerous 
and destructive tendency toward Badicaiism — that poi- 
son of which youth, especially, Is naturally fond, and 
whose chief exponent Is the self-made man. But upon 
this all-important phase we have not space to dilate. 
We would only stop to recommend any one of the, no 
doubt, many sceptics of this our way of thinking, to 
read the London Quarterly, to which we are indebted 
for our, perhaps, phenomenal views in a young student. 

Again, the torm may be applied to one whose edu- 
cation has been attained through utiintiy private stttdg/, 
without the aid of schools in any way. But this also 
accidental circumstance cannot give us the essential 
difference, of which we are in search. In fact, thecal*

ture so acquired may have come fVom toithout, Juet as

course of reading may have [brought bucIi au one into 
cloaegt sympathy wltli the beet thinking of the beet and 
moHt cultivated niinils. Such coiumunion with such 
thinking lany have produced in him that esseatial fea- 
ture of soul which di»tinguiitlies between the true con- 
servative aud the mi^hievouB self-made man In the 
worst aspect of the character. I'he one thus educated 
may have used his private judgment, and used It well, 
la procuring from the beet books the best outward in- 

We admire the true cooservative, because we think 
that it is true conservatism aloue in literary tastes that 
has the power of seeing where lies the truly excellent, 
and because our common sense despises all this twaddle 
of self-made men about " radical reforms " and " move- 
ments," who rail at society and the church, aud who 
are continually driveling their utter nonsense about the 
" practical," and are raising their Insignificant squeak- 
ing carping against the classics, whose sound tliinking, 
whose clear, manly, lofty spirit, and whose beauty are 
alike and equally unintelligible to them. Furthermore, 
the self-made man is nothing, If not perverse, in bis 
heterodoxy, in hie Uterary dogmas, and be clinga with 
bull-dog tenacity to his wretched mistaken tastes and 
ideas, which may be compared In both their becoming- 
uesB and their efl%ct upon the observer, to an ill-fitting, 
patched coat, far from beautiful In its aristocratic prime, 
and whose faults the long Interim since It left the hands 
of its bungling author has painfully exaggerated. 

We bil to find In the self-made man that intelli- 
gent sympathy which alone makes delightful, to one 
with a BCholar's tastes, hie fellow's companionship. 

Of course, we all admire the plucky spirit of the 
man who, in de&ult of a better way to bis goal out of 
the forest of Ignorance, seizes his axe manfully, and 
undauntedly hews himself out. Self-made? It Is bet- 
ter to be made in that way than not at all. The delight- 
ful " Autocrat " asks his audience if they remember a 
certain Irishman's house at Gambrldgeport, whioh I 
house he built from drain to chimney-top with his own | 
hands. It took him a good many years to build it, and < 
one could see that it was a little out of plumb, and a 
little wavy In outline, and a little queer and uncertain I 
in general aspect. A regular hand could have built a 
better house; but it was a very good bouse for a "self- 
made" carpenter's house, and people praised It, and 
said how remarkably well the Irishman had succeeded. 
They never thought of praising the fine blocks of 
houses a little farther on. 

Your self-made man deserves more credit, If that Is 
all, and we gracefully, nay gladly, award him a most 
hearty bravo! But we cannot bring ourselves to say 
amen to the declaration that he is in every way the 

squai of his fellow, who has attained genuine culture. 
Horace Qreely says, in truly characteristic expression, 
that "your self-made man takes a vast respODsiblltty 
off the Almighty's hands." 

As a rule, the most satisfactory friend and charm- 
ing man is the college-bred man with a deeply rooted, 
legitimate culture; but whose surface has been polished 
with the Timothy Tltcomb style of philosophy. 


The wise man wrote, "In much wisdom Is much 
grief," aud, "He that increaseth wisdom, Increaseth 
sorrow," and from his time to ours, from Creation to 
the Judgment, the secret longing of the human heart, 
conceal it as we will, is for the blist of ignorance. 

If a man's learning has not choked out of mind the 
delights of early childhood, if the cherub he left In the 
gate, when he forfeited his Eden, will let him approach 
aud survey his first blessings, he will behold a creature 
mild and gentle, dreamy as u rosebud or dewdrop, lisp- 
ing names of its own fancy, attached to every beauty, 
and finding all things beautiful, the lark, fr(^, crow, 
alike musical, every blossom a rare flower, every breath 
a Dew delight. He finds a friend la every dumb crea- 
ture, and his simple worship, la love. 

Let the observer glance quickly, for the scene Is to 
change. Man's curse is hovering over the child. He 
sees the tree of knowledge, he wonders at the fruit, he 
seeks to know it better, the first blush burns his cheek, 
but he is faciuated by a passion for new knowledge, he 
must exercise his freedom of mind, he Is no longer con- 
tent to love — he reaches forth to learn, and abandons the 
trust of childhood for the shifting doubts of after life; 
his thirst for knowledge draws him toward anything 
unknown, and, with all a fiend's guile, leads him oa to 

He walks in the garden, and the cool hour of refiec- 
tioa shows him he Is altered, and his conscience tells 
him that the cherub he has been, will guard his past, 
but never restore him to it. 

If we follow the history of our childhood, we find 
that our first fancies are all broken by the severe learn- 
ing that rushes upon us In our manner of life, with the 
air we breathe; we doubt, question, and yield up a 
cherished notion as if it had not been, aud for content 
and happiness, knowledge gives us suspicion and in- 
quisitiveness. No happy dream, or poetic illusion can 
please us, if the jack-in-the-box in it truel frightens It 
away. We cannot simply live, and appreciate pleasure, 
— we musl ever study, Investigate, question, and dispute 
for knowledge's sake, and no faith is free from scepti- 
cism, and no foud pursuit from Iconoclastic attack. We 
mistrust our senses, and employ the aid of artificially 
developed organs, to guide us. We learn to sufibr from 
that which Nature would have permitted us to enjoy.

and we shudder at noises and eights and feelingB that 
would please us, were It not for the refimmenls of know- 

Who for example does not secretly lonj? for the mel- 
ody hia boyhood found in 4lh of July, hand-organs, 
boDea, drums, whistles and retlles, when he Is hored to 
death with the scientific thunipings of classical music? 
But he is tiiflnitely belter off tban one who Is hlmaelf 
educated to appreciate artistic composition, for we are 
told no one can realize how maliciously a trained ear 
tortures its possestor with every discord and harsh note. 

All enligbled people have carried the pursuit of 
kncwltilge so far, that men are rare who are not so 
degraded as to prefer a few niciutbruls of food swallowed 
into llie ttcmath rteking liot, while the iiijiid bolts tlie 
dally CHlaiogue of crimes, to the blessed comfort of a 
leisurely breakfast; and just Lecaute they are learning 
the news! No matter whether it is mental and moral 
poison or not, it U new and all are seeking knowledge. 
A man wbo tries to be choice Id bis reading is galled 
and disgusted till he hardly darts read at all, yet be 
feigns an occasional pleasure, or piece of information, 
and follows his fate, reads and suffers as all alhers. 

We Qnd this passion for knowledge soasplilngaul 
uncoQtroIable, that it has beeD thought best for the 
world that all person very remarkably afflicted with cer- 
talD symplonis be gathered into universities. These 
places of refuge are supposed to be as heallby a vent for 
the escape of this popular ferment as can be devised, for 
' in them professors give out the knowledge they havecol- 
lected and written down, and students accept it. 

The advantages of this are, that the' students are 
kept quiet and think they are surer to know as much as 
those who have gone before, and when they have heard 
all the profesBors andjeft, they understand the folly of 
the performance and devote their after efforts toward 
getting others into Ihe same predicament. Then it 
helps to keep the professors from launching out Btill fur- 
ther Into the unseen. Ills very apparent that this is 
better than having the whole world shaken by thous- 
anda of independent investigators, for If it were, we 
would learn much more rapidly, and man would all the 
sooner become a heartless, Godlesa wretch. 

Btill, strange as it is, we find that colleges are not 
guarded aa places for the confinement of criminals or 
insane people of certain types, but that each object of 
attack, as in the spotted-plague, seeks toglve the disease, 
not however to one another, hut to whole schools of 
youth, whom he strives to beguile Into college, and few 
have the the hardihood to resist his allurements. 

Trifling as tills device Is to couflne and diminish the 
fire kindled by the numberless lamps of learning, man 
has given up ail other methods of restricting its ravages. 
A few centuries ago, umorevigorouscourse was adopted, 
but the aim beiug to crush out knowledge from certain 
classes and foster it !□ others ; it failed, for so long as 
one spark exists, it is nut (lueuched. If all who are in 

the labyrinth could find a sudden death, posterity might 
have Arcadia again. 

As it is, DO man Is of any consequence till he has 
been dazed by the light of truth, and no one's mind la 
trustworthy till his judgment is perverted Id the chan- 
nels of thought £ome old dreamers have scooped out for 
UB. Fortunately, however, this pursuit la mainly con- 
fined to scraps of ancient literature, or abstruse reason- 
ing on subjects having least to do with Ihe pleasure and 
occupation of life. I say fori unstely— because the de- 
luded are agreed that these subjects are best to train the 
intellect. Now if the minds in college faculties were 
not so well trained, btudeuts might think the pecullari- 
liea of an occasional profei^sor would be modified by 
greater study, but as it is, all see plainly that it is the 
training that Is to blame ; Ihey have all they caught, so 
the students are sometimes fortunate enough to keep out 
some of Ihe learning, and keep in some of the common 
»>ense Nature has given them. That Ihey are educated 
out of ail enjoyment is a smaller matter. If they have 
enough judgment to live on. 

Knowledge has separated more friends than any 
other influence. ;How often has it destroyed companion- 
ship, either opposing people In opinion, or carrying one 
person out of range of another? 

And how many souls has knowledge wrecked ? 
How many has it beguiled from a peaceful, loving faith 
in Qod and man, to doubt of ell goodness lu both? 
From how many thousands ;has it taken the blessed 
comfort of prayer? How many thrown into eternity 
with wasted lives? 

Beware of the tree of knowledge; who shall say 
where the delusion will end, or how it will carry him, 
or through what sin it will lead him ? Ever, something 
beyond calls and tempts us on throughout our lives. 

We have been told often that men are like sheep, 
and though the old bell-wether, who probably knowa 
most in this world, took to spade and pitchfork long ago 
and retired to his suburban attode, we are study ingfosall 
foot-prints here, and soot and ashes from one of hia 
chimneys over the ocean yonder, and vegetation from 
the roof of his cavern, and the animals that live on it, 
BO that our perseverance may be rewarded sooner than 
we expect, and, sheep, lamt>s, and ail, we shall follow 
his leading and receive his own warm welcome. 

In fact he has made every efibrt to keep knowledge 
fashionable, and keep men ever struggling for more ; he 
has made tbem grow to depend upon that they feed on, 
and liis subjects work at his direction, so that the blatk 
art has atrociously been called to the light, and has es- 
caped the opprobrium that properly belongs to it.

Mr. Q. Quilla has sworn off vers! flcation— for the 
present at least. The way of it was this: he was mailing 
such glorioua progress — in his own opinion, that he got 
to grinding out more than he linew what tn do with, 
especially after the Imp of Doggerel aud E-isence o 
Spring Poetry had conducted him into the realm of am- 
atory com posltlou, which tickled hiH palate monstrtinaly. 
So what should he do, hut scratch and sweat, till, from 
bis addled brain, he had evolved a production, which he 
fondly hoped would melt the hltherlo impregnable heart 
of his mistress. The answer that he received in due 
time, cauned his sudden resolution ta desert the Held to 
which he had imagined his Presiding Qenius had un- 
questionably pointed him. In his lackadaisical ad- 
dress he had recounted to the amiable mistress of his 
heart all the preeminent excellencies of body and mind 
with which his love-blinded fancy had clothed her. 
The part of the cruel maiden's reply that had caused his 
aforesaid heart-rending n^solve, ran something like 
this : '' There Is a poiot at whioli the ftorbearauce of 
even so amiable an Individual as I am acknowledged to 
be must cease. If you have any regard for my feelings, 
if you desire to retain the slightest liope of my continued 
favor, you must grant me one request, which would cer- 
tainly appear rational in the eyes of an Impartial aiid 
unprejudiced person— that you will spare me any repe- 
tition of your metrical inflictions, conspicuous as they 
are, not so much for their detestable versification and 
utter lack of any literary merit, as for an unpardonable 
disregard of the primary, siiuplest, and most fundamen- 
tal principles of veracity." 

This delicate hint comes upon poor Quills like a 
thunder-clap, while he la conBtructing another elaborate 
idyl to address Theocritusl-ike to hia Amaryllis. Bit- 
ter anguish lacerates his inmost soul. His countenance

clasps hia bands, and tears his hair, and — yes he does- 
he swears. Will not this poor flame of life flicker out, 
now that the supply of the oil of hia fervid love is thus 
suddenly cut off? It does not die out, but it burns hec- 
tic in his cheek and feverish in his eye. The dread rav- 
ages of a violent attack of hypocbondriaais reduces his 
Apollo-like form to such a condition that bis facetious 
Mend is justified in dubbing him an " emaciated skele- 
ton ;" in fact, he seems upon the point of evanescing 
into nothingness.

WITH conufderable interest we have renently been 
examining the early numbers of the University 
Chronicle, kindly loaned by Prorespor Demmon. Aa 
the boys now in eollef^e bave not eoouf^li years to buh- 
tatn so long a memory, and as a sufficient time has 
elapsed to have erased many recollectiuDs of historical 
moment from the miuds of the alumni, we purpose 
briefly to review the chronicles of college events juet 
aft«r the war, when, we dare *>ay, there was more prog- 
ress and Intellectual activity In the University than has 
been seen before or since. The class of 166S has the 
honor of presenting us with four full profeesors and two 
assistants. Their names are Profs. Demmon, Hariing- 
tou, Sleere, Walter, Pattengill, and J. B. Davis. We 
doubt if ever a college class hae done so well by its 
alma mater. But we have something further for which 
to be grateful to them, for by their energy they founded 
The Chronicle. The first number, we find, was read 
by the college world March 2, 1867. It had but three 
editors to answer to a fornightly call for " more copy." 
Its columns were somewhat longer and wider than our 
present ones, but five pages contained the reading mat- 
ter. We are glad to say that its suggested fear of being 
an "ephemeron" has not been realized. In the first 
number we find a vigorous communication against the 
State Legislature for having passed a resolution request- 
ing the Regenta to expel all Southerners from the Uni- 
versity ; an interesting account of the celebration of 
Washington's birthday, when Fighting Joe Hooker 
and other generals were in the city ; an aunouncement 
of the appearance of the ninth volume of the Palla- 
dium, and other articles. Two weeks later we are in- 
formed of the selection by the students, of the college 
colore, azure-blue and maize; that the number of the 
students Is 1,255 ; that there is danger that homceopa- 

tby will be established here; and that Vol. I, No. 1, of 
The Oracle has made lis appeamnce. In No. 8 we are 
amused at reading the account of the Junior Eihibl- 
tinn, in which the reporter hae the bud taste to criticise 
our embryo professors .with an especially trenchant 
pen. Here, too, it is suggested that the Lecture Associ- 
ation devote its money to the procuring of papers and 
magazines for a reading room. Upon turning over the 
leaves, we are interested in lieeing articles on the gym- 
nasium. One opens with : "Each class here, within [he 
last tliirty yearn, has asked, shall we ever have a gym- 
nasium?" We also hear a low murmur of women's 
rights, and co edueution begins to rear its bead. With 
these early numbers the University lost the services of 
Profs. Lewitt, Gunn, and White, the latter of whom 
went to found Cornell. 

To show the literary spirit of the time, we may note 
the publication of (be Univeistty Chronicle ; the Maga- 
zine, published by six edlfrs from the senior class, ten 
numbers a year being Issued ; the Oracle, an annual by 
the sophtf ; the Palladium, by the f^ecret societies, and 
theCaatalia, by the independents. There were Com- 
mencement speeches, Junior, sophomore, and even 
fre^^liman exhibitions ; and besides all this, the literary 
societies were flourishing, having a large part of the 
u ml erg rad nates enrolleil, and full reports of meetings 
were Inserted in the college papers. Base-ball also de- 
manded attention, and as the University possessed the 
champion nine, they used to amuse themselves with 
the Detroit club by a score of 70 to 18. 

At the opening of the next college year we see four 
editors on the stafT, and they relieve themselves every 
week. For a year this continued, but in October, '68, 
six "quill drivers" conducted its affairs. The present 
size and form of The Chronicle first appeared in the 
fall of '69, when it became a fortnightly paper with its 
HubHcriptloii price 52.60, and with the editors' names 
not published. Its name bad formerly been the Uni- 
versity Chronicle. This was then changed to the one 
we now have, but the nameless editors made tlie mis- 
take of beginning a new series and calling It No. 1 of 
Vol. I. Had thty continued in the regular order we 
should now be publishing Vol. XVI. As an Interesting 
fact, it is also well to observe that the editors remained 
incognito until the board of the spring of 1879 resolved 
to sacrifice its modesty to tlie curiosity of the public. 
We doubt if tbey ever received more praise than cen- 
sure, but perhaps a few compliments from the ex- 
cimnges, which have always been so kind to us, had 
puffed them up, and they resolved to back the pi4>er 
with their names, thus securing their Individual share 
of praise from those who understood the nature of their 
work. But concerning the later history of our paper It is 
not within the province of this article. We have only 
wished to freshen the memory of its early days.

pense of postage, money orders, etc., la entirely avoided. That the

IhatProf.B, furnishes the American periodicals tor tbe Univer- 
slly library, the University reading-room, tbe Ann Arbor Ladles' 
Library Association, several reading clubs, and scores of Individ- 
search as carefully as ne may. we can And nothing but praise 
lo bestow upon tbe performance uf the Cary concert troupe at

Tbe Co11«g« Champioaship Record foi tbe Past 

The college fbol-hall season fhr IfVt practically ended oi 
Thanksgiving day, leaving Vale tbe victors. II has been eslab 
llshed by a minority vote of the eilsllog asaoclatloa clubs, tha 
hereafter no club shall hold the championship of any future sea 
son aniens entitled thereto by having won amiijorlty of the asao 
elation series of matches, as In tbe ease of Yale this season. ThI 
will end the claim made by Princeton In 11^ after thescoreof tha 
season, when no one club bad won a m^orlty o( games. The sea 

son's play In the championship arena has been a most exceptional 

but especially In regard to the peculiar cbamcter of the ploy. His 

downs scored by the winning team ; while the losing taam did not 
In a single match score a goal or a touch-dowo and even safety 

kicking a goal. or scoring a touch-down, while In both the Prince- 
ton-Harvard and Yale-PrluoeUm matches not only were DO goals 
kicked or touch-downs scored, but only one safety touch-duwu 
was mode by Harvard and but una by Princeton. In all the six 
matches Harvard displayed the most skill in strategic play, such 
as In " passing," long and accurate " throwing." good 'catching," 
"dribbling," "running," "field-kicking," and especially in the 
generalship of the team by the oaptaln. Next to Harvard comes 
Columhlu In exhibiting these esaenUals of legitimate foot-ball 
play, while Yale and Princeton stand out prominently in the 
heavy-weight business or what is technically called the "bloolE 
game," a style of play which deprives a contest nut only of all the 
Interest that legitimate foot-ball pliylng would yield, but renders 
it almost Impossible to play a match wUhuut severe Injuries and 
continual iU-fcellng and angry disputes. A complete revision of

"English Philosophers: Duvid Hartley and James Mill," by 
O. a Bower, M.A. New York : O. P. PutnamsSuna. For sale by 
John Moore; pr1ce,»l.2i.— Among the new books lately publl'hed 
none Is more striking In Its kind than Mr. Bower's treatment of 
the philosophy of David Hartley and James Mill. Of all plilloso- 
pbers,andespeclally of English philosophers, no two are so much 
alike In Ibelr theories as these writers, and yet none are so differ- 
ent In their personal c ha ratterl sties. Hartley whs honest, unam- 
bitious, ready at all times to make allowances for the frailties of 
others, and eiitlr.ely without pride, selllshneBS, or sensuality, 
James Mill was philanthropic and unswerving In his devotion to 
what he thought was right, yet passionate, narrow. Impatient, and 
utterly devoid of sympathy. The theory of the Association of 
Ideas, now so fomlllar to us, and ho often applied to the various 
practical fleldaof all kinds of knowledge, was the life study of 
Hartley. Ue It was who first formulated and elaborated this the- 
ory, but 11 was left to James Mill, more than half a century later, 

nhlch science placed at his disposal, to 
Its truths. The author then proceeds to 
He manner In which the physical basis of 
>ut by Hartley, and follows thin with a 
istulatesaBd drat propositions of thethe- 
by lis two greatest eiponents. The theory Is

The Will Is briefly treated, and some little space Is allotlad to the 
ethical doctrlnesof the two philosophers. Mr. Bower closes his 
work by giving a noble and Just estimate of the value and InOu- 
enceof (he opinions of Hartley and James Mill. A notice of Mr. 
Bower's work would be lusuOlcleut without mentioning, at Icaat.

Two weeks ago to-day saw upon our campus the 
second of a eerieaof class games, played by the Junlore 
on one side, and the sophomores on the other. In the 
first Inning the sophomores took the kick off, but the 
JuQlora soon carried the ball close to tbetr opponents' 
goal and succeeded in maklnga touch down. The trial 
at goal hlled and for the rest of the Inning the sopho- 
mores had it all their own way, finally making a touch 
down in their opponents' goal. The second Inning was 
or only half an hours duration, and at the first the Jun- 
iors had a slight advantage, hut again, as In the first in- 
ning, the aopliomores began to gain toward the close and 
Boored another touch down Just as time was called. The 
Juniors had by for the heavier team, but were very 
poorly disciplined, while on the contrary the sopho- 
mores were extremely well disciplined, and each man 
was always In his place. Umpireit, Depew, and Duff.

On Friday evening, December 9th, the University 
Musical Society, assisted by the Ypsilanti Musical Soci- 
ety, presented Haydn's great oratorio, "The Creation." 
It is the second time, during the past two years that this 
Society has undertaken the arduous task of preparing 
this work, and the pecuniary risk of securing foreign 
talent for the presentation of it. Upon both occasions it 
has been a musical success, and if the Society will only 
persevere In their laudable etTorte, the time Is not far 
distant when they shall no longer have to contend 
against the latter difflcuity. Altiiough there was great 
nee<l of such a foundation as can only be secured in a 
well trained orchestra, this want was filled, aa well as 
possible, by theadmirableplanoaccompauimentsof Mr. 

O. B. Cady. The chorus, coiisletlngof sixty voices, was 
well trained and kept well together. The manner ly 
which they rendered the many and difficult choruses 
plainly indicated the untiring efforts that Prof. Cady 
has exerted In training them. The weak point of the 
chorus was in beginning each part. For the first one or 
two bars tliey would be decidedly weak, but would then 
gather strength and cooie out with a fullness that showed 
the confidence which constant practice had given tiiem. 
The tenorn were decidedly weak, and in places could 
Bcarcelybe heard. However, the maanerln which they 
gave the last cliorus of Part 1, was especially praisewor- 
thy, and no fault could be found with It. The solos were 
taken by well-known singers from other cities. Their 
names were a sufficient guarantee that the solos would 
he rendered In an artistic manner. The soprano soloist. 
Miss Emma Heckle of Chicago, possoasesa voice of great 
compass and sweetness, and her tonef are rich and full. 
Her recitatives are not of a finished and pleasing charac- 
ter, and it was not until her first aria that she won the 
favor of the audience. Her aria " On Mighty Pens Up- 
lifted Soars " was very good and was received with great 
applause. The fine basso of Mr. Frani Remmertz is too 
well-known to need praise from us. The deep full tones 
of his voice could not foil to incite admiration as was iu- 
dlcsted by the applause he received throughout the 
evening. His recitatives are simply perfect, and In his 
arias the grace and ease with which he took both his 
high and low notes increased, if It was possible, the high 
esteem In which he Is held here. His best efforts were 
his interpretation of the recitative "And Qod said, het 
the E^rth," and the aria " Boiling in Foaming Billow," 
the merits of the latter being recognised by an extended 
applause. Both oftheseselectlonsgave him excellent op- 
portunities to display his fine voice, and he utilized them 
to their full extent. Mr. Tandy, of BuQalo, sustained 
the tenor parts In a creditable mauner. His singing 
though not as fine as that of Miss Heckle and Mr. Rem- 
mertz, nevertheless was quite pleasing. His voice is high 
and of good quality, and has evidently been highly cul- 
tivated. His rendition of " In Native Worth and Hon- 
our Clad " was especially worthy of note. The trio "On 


The Chronicle. 

Thee Each Living Soul Awaits " wae by far the iiioet 
pleasing trio of the concert. The voices of Miss Heckle 
and Messrs. Reniniertz and Tandy harnionlzt in such a 
manneras could not fall to leave a pleaaing impression. 
The aim of this society is to cultivate a laste and appre- 
ciation for good classical niu^ic. This is a movement 
that Is being msde, at the present time. In nearly all 
cities, and It Is wllh pleasure that we see Ann Arbor 
take Its stand in the ranks of these reformers. We ex- 
tend our congratulutious to Prof. C. B. Cady for the sue- 
c<!ss he has already achieved, and our best wishes for 
the future. 

Through the kindnessof the Pa//a(ffuflt editors, we 
are allowed a peep at the advance sheets of '82's Pallud- 
ium. That It will be the master work of master hands 
wl can not say, but there is no danger in predicting its' 
success, and that it will be praised by many, and criti- 
cised only by a few. They have made many new de- 
partures, most of which will be pleasing to our college 
world. In the list of our revered faculty the names of 
the books which they have published have been thrown 
out, to give room to mure interesting matter. The his- 
tory of secret societies, that was Introduced by the Board 
of '81, lias also been laid aside as unworthy of a place In 
this book. This is a very good move, for although it was 
a very Interesting part of the Palladium, it is scarcely 
a permanent topic. If kept in from year to year,|it 
would necessarily have to repeat itself and thus would 
onlyserveto flllupspaee. We miss, the old time hon- 
ored ^ontisplece, and In its place And a dignified group 
of ttie ten editors. While this departure is an Improve- 
ment on the execution of the designs for the last two, U 
Is simply due to the poorlikenesses which former Boards 
liave had. It certainly requires more work and ingenu- 
ity to arrange a group in grotesque attitudes In a cut, 
than to simply have a photographer lake the picture of 
each and arrange them. It would have been better to 
have kept the old idea, and perfected it. The cuts are 
for the most part good. The greater number have been 
designed by Mr. C. L. Coffin, 'i^-Z, and executed by 
French Bros., of Toledo. Mr. Cofflu deserves great praise 
for the ingenuity he has displayed in designing the va- 
rious cuts. In all places where it was possible, the 
Board, with tais assistance, have introduced new cuts. 
The ones introducing the secret societies and the school 
of Political Science being e!'])ecially good. Sammy and 
our other uoted men have not LJeen forgotten either in 
the cuts or in the poetry. Thei-eare, in all, fifteen full- 
page cuts. These have been obtained at a cost nearly 
three times as gre:it as those of '81. Among the secret 
societies we notice a new departure, which, with our 
opinion of co-education, lioes not meet our fancy. It Is 
the appearance of a society called the Kappa Alpha 
Tbeta, with an enilrely different seal from that of last 
year, and one which is not nearly as appropriate, tu the 

latter part of the book we see seven cuts on co-education 
that do not at all harmonize with the introduction of a 
co-ed society in the Palladium. The Board under oi e 
cut says, " What we are coming to," but we should add 
to the Implied answer, that before long we will see the 
fair ones have a representative on the Board, and then, 
of course, she will be elected managing editor. Now 
won't that be nice? How fine itwould have been for the 
Board of '81, if they had had a "cat" to help them with 
their work. However " Suinclent Unto the Day, etc." 
and let us hope that this day will never come. The 
paper on which It is printed is white, whleli does not 
meet onr taste as well as tinted. It will be bound in 
clotb, so as to make a good serviceable book. What is 
that? Are there any grinds, yon ask. Well, I should 
think there were, but you must wait till Wednesday to 
hear them, as we have every assurance that it will Ijeon 
sale early that mornlag. The Board have gone to the 
additional expense of having their " ads " set up in De- 
troit so as to give us a cheap and nice Chri!>tmas present. 
It is the first time in three years that the Palladium has 
made Its appearance before Christmas, and this is one 
proof of the enterprise of the Board. There are many 
others which It would scarcely do for us to meution. 
We congratulate the editors on the work they have done 
fVom so little good material. It Is something to glory in, 
and 'S2 wilt never feel ashamed of its Palladium. 

For some time past it has been painfully evident 
that our two schools of medicine were not on tlie best 
of terms, and It was also well known that the Board of 
Regents were to Investigate these troubles. It was for 
this reason that so many students desired to be present 
at the Regents' meetings last week. At the meeting 
held Tuesday, December 6, only some business of little 
interest was transacted; but Wednesday morning the 
case of Dr. Franklin came up for Investigation. There 
were three charges against him, namely : first, that he 
knowingly issued a false certificate of attendance; sec- 
oud, that he submitted false testimony in an examina- 
tion of the matter before the Board ; and, third, that he 
willfully violated the rules of the Board In respect lo 
personal detraction of professors. The evidence on the 
first charge showed that while Dr. Franklin bad issued 
a Iblse certificate of attendance, he had done so un- 
knowingly ; and on the second it showed that since he 
first submitted his testimony to the Board, he iiad 
learned things that altered his defense. In view of 
these facts the Board dismissed these two charges. The 
third cliarge, although consldcrahte evidence was heard 
on It, Is laid over till the next meeting. It is greatly to 
be regretted that these two schools can not at leaat carry 
on their work without constant collisions. It brings 
our whole University into bud repute with the public, 
and injures us In an incomparable degree. And even 
now it appears that we are not at the eud of our troubles.

Dr. Hftclean nnw thinka that false stateraenta have been 
made in regard in him, and ha.s asked Tar an Investlga' 
tlon on Tout points, namely : flrat, as to tlie Smoke will ; 
second, as to whether he did, within a few days of the 
last Board meeting, denounce homoeopathy before hia 
class ; third, whether he Instigated Mr. Skeels to prefer 
cliargen against Dr. Franklin ; fourth, wliether he was 
tlie author of a certain article which recently appeared 
in public print. Dr. Maclean denies all theae charges, 
and will probably have a hearing at the January meet 
Ing. It is sincerely to be hoped that this will be the 
last of these investigations. There was also consider- 
able miscellaneous business transacted. Regent Ciitch- 
eon was instructed to prepare and present to the Board 
at the Dext meeting an expression of tlie Board on tlie 
death of our tate president, Henry P. Tappan, LL. D. 
Resolutions were adopted appointing a committee 
to ascertain the best way in which to perpetuate the 
memory of .Presidents Henry P. Tappan and E. O. 
Haven, and also that of the late Prof. G. P. Wllllama. 
The com nittee app^iotel i^ Dr. Frlese and Regents 
Uutcheon and S. 8. Walker. The annual report of this 
board contains aome very interesting fiuH». During the 
past year both more Important and a larger quantity of 
business has been transacted than ever before. Each of 
the nlnecommitlees have had their full share of work 
and especially the one 00 buildings. The munlflcient 
but long withheld appropriation of 1100,000 for the library 
building and other permanent improvements lias 
lartjely increased the work of this committee and the 
board in general. The board has also been harassed by 
the determined and partially sueoessful attacks of sister 
universities on our corps of professors and Instructors, 
iu order to transfer their services to other colleges. And 
although they have had some whose services they would 
have liked to havu retained, It Isgratirylug to know that 
they testify that they have the University " not In any 
hourof danger or of trouble, but In the full height of its 
great prosperity." The tioard pays tribute to the liter- 
ary department by assertiug that lt« prosperity now, as 
always, Indicates the height to which we have attained 
In higher education. They further state that no pains 
or expense should be spared to strengthen and perpetu- 
ate this department, for Justin proportion to it will life 
and prosperity be imparted to the whole. There has 
been no step taken, as yet, for dividing the academic d^ 
partment Into separate schools and faculties. The es- 
tablishment of the school of political science Is a step In 
this direction. But the Regents recognize that this would 
be a radical change, and therefore needs carefiil study 
and deliberation. This step once taken would change 
the entire character and organization of the department, 
and make it dlBbrent from that of any other in this 
country. However It Is something that has not been 
tried, so that we would not have the experleaoe of other 

colleges to help ut 
long look before v 

and in such a step it Is well to take a 

Whenever It occurs to us to think of the name long- 
est connected with temperance In Ihls country, that of 
Gen. Neal Dow of Maine comes to us. And It is no 
wonder, for more than half a century he has been fight- 
ing what he termi the "crime of crimes.'' However 
he stood before au Ann Arbor audience in University 
Hall for the first time last Wednesday evening. As 
might be expected after so long a campaign he handles 
the subject without gloves, and although over seventy 
years old, his charge upon the enemy was as fierce as ' 
that of one of the Old Guard. Like many of that famous 
band he says " whisky must be put down," but it goes 
without saying that bla meaning Is a different one from 
theirs. Being from the State where the Maine Liquor 
Law Is In force he told us of the wonderful amount of 
good it was doing tlie people, and how they were becom- 
ing more prosperous under prohibition. In dwelling 
upon howefioctual this stopping of the trafB J is, it seems 
to us his enthusiasm carried him too far, for it happened 
to be our fortune to be at his home, Portland, this sum- 
mer, and on the steamboats and In the hotels we discov- 
ered men often suspiciously slipping In and out ofsmall 
rooms when they were troubled with a stomachache. 
We did not enter any of these retreats, but a friend who 
was occasionally unwell told usthat it was a prime arti- 
cle. Whether we are mistaken or not about this, we 
must say we were well entertained by the noble white- 
haired old temperance stalwart and we believe his cause 
must eventually win. 

There has been a strange lack of Interest in the His- 
torical seminary during this seme.'tter, and this lack of 
Interest seems due to a want of discussion and mutual 
criticism. One has no special inducement to a careful 
scrutiny of voluminous authorities when he knows that 
whatever he may produce will pass muster. The trouble 
seems to be partly with the members of the class, who 
show a singular delicacy In criticising each other's 
views, and partly with the professor in cliarge who 
seems disposed to check discussion. It is doubtless 
uevessary that the views of the authorities should be 
presented, but Inasmuch as there are many and Impor- 
tant points, on which the authorities differ, and on 
which there are good grounds for opposing views, 
would it not be well to dUcuss these views somewhat at 
length? One great end of this and similar courses is to 
force the habit of independent thought, and there Is 
I better stimulus to Independent thinkers than the 
knowledge that one's positions are likely to be criticised, 
the truth any more likely to be elicited than by 
the contact, of mind with mind in free, open discussion. 
Let us have, then, more discussion, even at tiie expense 
of less lengthy reportu on tbe oplnloas of the authorities.

In tlie latter partof tli« art«enth century, duHng the 
Benalsttaiice in Italy, the Ducal ch&lr of Florence waa :

nlfloent buildings and all that was beautiful: he did 
more, he made [C a center for commerce, riches flowed 
to its coSiirB until It was called the " Bank of the World." 
It became the fashion at court to cultivate the more re- 
fined kinds or learning, 1u understand music, the com- 
bining of light and shade, and to have some knowledge 
of the phlloiiophy of the ancients ; but, a» la usual, with 
his love of the beautiful and elegant came a iuve of ease, 
of gaiety, of pleasure, of debauchery, and thla was not 
only encouraged by the example of the Duke, one of the 
moat dlitsolute of men, but was even connived at by the 
Church. We all know liow demoralized the Church 
had become at tbla time, how she had fallen from her 
high atandard, and what licence waa allowed to her fol- 
lowers, and withaBuecesfiion of such PupeeasSextus VI, 
Hinocent VIII, and Alexander VI, there was little of a 
Chech. It was with such surroundings that Savonarola 
began b)s work. 

This man was a native of the city of Ferrara. HIn 
Ibther, who was a court physician, intended him for bis 
own profession, but when quite young he ahowed dis- 
gust at the manners of the court, and at the age of twenty- 
two, rau away from home and united himself with the 
Dominican Order of Monks at Bologna. He studied 
here for seven years and was known as a most obedient 
disciple, but was not particularly ascetlcal ; had no extra- 
ordinary love for filth such aa distinguished many of 
his order ; sent among the amaller towns to preach, he 
was far from snccessful, his voice was sharp and harsh, 
hlsgeaturesanddelivery awkward, It was not until many 
yeara after that he overcame these faults. He battled 
bravely through seeming follures, and ws^ settled at St. 
Marks, In Fiorence,aa a reader and occasional teacher ; his 
great object from the first, as ia shown by a letter writ- 
ten to his father on hla leaving, was the reform of the 
Church and the liberation of Florence from tbe Ducal 
rule. His sermons were allegories, he foretelling, by 
applying biblical history to his own time, the regenera- 
tion of the Church, and many other things that were tc 
happen in his day ; he soon began to be considered a 
prophet, and his fame spread rapidly ; he was appointed 
to preach regularly at St. Marks ; men of learning gath- 
ered around i)lm and he l>ecame a great power. 

In 1492 Lorenzo de Medici died ; his son succeeded 
him, but being threatened by the armies of Charles, the 
VIII, of France, tbe disgraceful terms of peace made 
by him Incensed the cllizeos and he was driven from 

tbe city. Savonarola succeeded in greatly softening the 
terms imposed by Charles, and for the next three years 
he was the chief power in the Stale. He formed a kind of 
htemrcby, Christ was tbe Lord of the State, he. His 
representative, to, interpret His wishes through a coun- 
cil chosen by lot, to tbe people; his pulpit was his 

ne, and he oontinued hia teachings without Inter- 

At this time Alexander VI wore the tiara; he was 
a man loaded with all the vices and even, the Catholic 
writers have failed to find the redeeming qualities of 
his character. As we may Imagine he did not desire 
the reform of the Church, and was not friendly to such 
a man as Savonarola ; every means was tried to silence 
him, monks of other orders answered his sermons, but 
were unable to stand against him in argument; his 
dismissal from his order was demanded to no purpose; a 
cardinal's cap was ofl^red him and he was invlt«d to 
visit Rome, but he knew too well tbe dangers to be met 
at the Papal court, and refuaed; he was then excom- 
municated and forbidden to preach; he obeyed for a 
time only. 

At last a controversy arose between the Dominican 
and Franciscan orders to settle whioh a trial by five 
was arranged and its failure was attributed to Savona- 
rola. The populace, taking one of its sudden freaks, 
became enraged against blm, and after besieging tbe 
convent and shedding much blood, succeeded In cap- 
turing him. He was tortured and sentenced by the 
Pope's Commiesiouers to death by hanging. 

In reviewing the life of this man the great question 
naturally ia, was he sincere or an Impostor? Probably 
he was both, and like many other reformers, aincere in 
his object was an Imposter In his means only. If sin- 
cere, be was certainly one of the greatest Giuatica this 
world has ever aeen ; but there seems tu have been " too 
much method In hla madnesa ;" he pretends to be the 
cbampion of liberty, but he told tbe Florentines that 
Ood would reward their fidelity by the subjeotion of 
Pisa; and then In his "Compendium Bevelationlum " 
be plainly claims the power of foreknowledge, but like 
most prophets he foretold only what any shrewd, clear- 
headed man with a good knowledge of men, of history, 
and of bis times, oould easily have foreseeu. Hla first 
prophecy of the destruction of Brescia within tbe life- 
time of some of his listeners was very safe ; for It would 
have been an unusual thing for a generation to pass and 
not see the destruction of that city; again in his sermon 
on Noah's Ark, from the worde "the waters covered 
the earth," he foreteilstfaecomlngof Charles, the VIII, 
when In fact that monarch badalready crossed the Alpa. 
Moreover he had a very convenient way of declaring 
that he had spoken only as a man when any of liis 
prophecies foiled to come to pass— true, hut very "trans-

One other thing seems to falsify him. There Is do 
example of any fanatic with a tithe of bis brains being 
M seneelePHi; tyrannical and deHtructive. When at tlie 
height of bis power, deeparlng, apparently, of the pres- 
ent generation; for he found the immoralities of llie 
age too deeply rooted to be overthrown witiiout a great 
otruggle, be formed a veered uiilitia of young men of 
from ten to twenty yearaof age, a kind of a great reform' 
club, establisbed on the prlni-ipie that has lasted for 
three hundred years — (o look after everybody's business 
but your own. To cite some of the duties of this army 
of reformers : "They were to enquire after and denouDce 
biaspbemers and gamblers; to seize their cards, dice 
and money; to admonlsb women and girls too gaily 
dressed. They were to force themselves into bouses and 
seize on cards, chessboards, harps, lutea, perfumer, mir- 
rors, masks, books of poems, and other instruments of 
the devil.'' Twice he sent out youthful police to collect 
all the vanities, and to keep up the excitement nmong 
his followers, for it was during bis war with the Pope, 
and be feared they would leave him in bis greatest 
need. Immense bonfires of their plunder were made. 
Among these vanities were paintings and other works of 
art.tbenamesof which have come to us as among the nioitt 
iiiustrlousof that time; howmueh the art world lost by 
these bonfires of Savonarola, it is Impossible to tell, but 
certainly a few more sucb, and it were better that he 
bad never been bora. 

With these facts before us it Is almost impossible to 
believe that he was entirely sincere, and yet It is equally 
bard to think bim an Impostor. Wliat, then, was be? 
All Ihrougb that age of superstitioD we find men who, 
bavlDg some great object to which they have devoted 
their lives and knowing the weakness of the people, 
have used Ibis weakness as a means for obtaining their 
end, carefully at first, besltatingly and only for minor 
obJeclB, but finding It always successful they have been 
drawn on and on until at length (bey boldly assert and 
claim powers of which they would at first have never 
even thought; or they are even more Ignornntand, by 
being at first mlpunderetood hy the Ignorant multitude's 
making a miracle or a prophecy from the workings and 
conclusions of a mighty brain, have had forced upon 
them an unwished-for power; but afterwards seeing its 
use and Influence, tbey stoop to discredit for the sake of 
tbe good that may come of it. Is It not in some such 
light that we may regard Savonarola? 


Two students walking down town the other day 
noticed an advertisement of a concert to be given by 
members of tbe WHberforce University. One inquired of 
bis comrade the location of this institution. "Don't 
know ; but I'll bet you tbe oysters It Is in Ohio." And 
so it proved to be. It is not meant to calumniate this 

hot-house of politicians, although that State ia as con- 
spicuous for the number of her educational institutions 
as fur tbe size of her herd of statesmen ; for others are 
likewise culpable, but in a less degree. It is merely in< 
tended by citing such a pbenomenul example, to give 
you some basis for calculating the Immense multitude 
of one-horse coliegen wllh which this country Is infiicled. 

These are mainly of two classes: The sectarian, and 
tUose founded and endowed by persons who tbink to 
erect a more enduring monument to themselves by 
leaving tbeir fortunes and names to colleges, whose 
premature birth renders their exltilanceprecailous, than 
endowing institutions already possessed of fame and 
name— consequently unable to perpetuate prima facie 
the memory of Mr. Jones. But it is unnecessary lo 
distinguish their origin In the consideration of their 
eflTect on education and students. 

This Inferior class of colleges and universities must 
be content with an inferior class of Instructors ; for even 
iflheycouid oflTer tbe same salary, tlie best men will 
choose lo connect tbeniselves with the "arger and more 
famous institutions. And good instructors are tlie prime 
factors in the make-up of a good university. There is 
no position on esrtb harder to suiitain than that of pro- 
fessor. He has to deal witb beings that are wiser, more 
capricious and carping, ami more unruly, than gods, 
men, or devils. The deficiency in professors, both In 
quantity and quality, entails upon these oveigrown 
btgb-BcbooIs the lack of the proper courses of study. 
With few professors, small buildings, poor apparatus or 
none, what can these poor things do? Tbey would die 
unnoticed, were it not for the Preparatory Department 
and Kindergarten in Iheback-campus. With the infants 
their catalogues enumerate a couple of hundred names. 
But tbe worst of it la, these so-called colleges areempow- 
ered to confer degrees, hy the case of obtaining which 
they allure half their victims to their tbreshotd. It has 
come to such a pass that a degree In this country may 
mean much or nothing, usually nothing. It is claimed 
that these colleges offer collegiate education to those 
who would otherwise do without, and thus increase tbe 
numberof tbe well educated. But the statistics of our 
country show that the proportion of college students is 
becoming less, and the number of college bred men In 
public life fewer. Such institutiona deteriorate scholar- 
ship and take away tbe respect due higher education. 

A bright young boy who has lieen dreaming of 
college life would be disgusted by tbe small and poorly 
equipped college, his bright visions would he dissipated, 
and he would probably return in disappointment to bis 
home and business. About the true univemity there is 
an Indescribable atmosphere that is infinitely palatable 
to the scholar. With such a place this horn student 
would be pleased. Tliese pseudo-colleges, on the other 
band, are the rendezvous of the great unwashed. While 
claiming that by, taking Iq this rag-.tag. and bob^tall

they iDcrease the number of students, they really lessen 
the number by deterioratlngschiilarahip antl cheapening 
degrees, thua sickening the better claaa of youths of col- 
lege work. They also plead for their existence that tliey 
enable those to attend that would be unable to gn to a 
flret-elaas pliice. Any man that deserves a collegiate 
cducatlonwillget It, If he has to work and slave for it for 
years. Any man who Is content with this bastard ofT- 
spring of higher education, Is not worthy to go to a good 
Institution. You say such men are bettered by having 
a polish put on them. But the grain of the material is 
easily dlsceruable even after the saud-paper and varnish. 
The rag out of a curriculum sets as uneasily on their 
weak Intellects, as does the peck of green apples on the 
youngster's stomach ; and their mental squeamlshnees 
leaves them only enough Latin to make fooU of them- 
selves, and sufficient Mntlieiuatics to make change over 
a counter. 

EDtTOUS Cheosicle: 

An article in the last Cbonicle intimated that there 
would be a lack of interest in Athletics that we are glad 
to see bids fair not to be realized. The tenor of the 
article was that because the officers had been elected 
from one faction that interest would subside. Because 
the most of the men who were interested enough to 
attend the election happened to l>e of one party, can we 
blame them for putting In their friends? Articles like 
the one referred to will do more to crush Interest tn 
Athletics than if all the officers were non-athletic men. 
It creates a feeling of suspicion against them that re- 
markable success will with difficulty remove. Although 
the officers are of the opposite party to the one to which 
tlie writer of the present article belongs, still we wish 
them success in their work of raising interest In Athlet- 
ics, which they have so well begun. 

What steps then have been taken 7 In the first place 
several entertainments are on foot for the purpose of 
fitting out tlie base-ball and Rugby teams with suits 
etc. This certuiuly is a step in the right direction and 
all the entertainments should be liberally patronized. 

In the second place there is to be a meeting in Chi- 
cago, December S3, for tlie purpose of establishing a 
Western College League for base-lmll and Rugby. Dele- 
gates will be present from Evanston, Racine, the Uni- 
versity of Wisconsin and the University of Michigan. 

Nothing can possibly be done to enhance the inter- 
est In Athletics more than the formation of this League. 
When there is such a chance as this every athlete Id the 
University will strive to get on one of the teams. Men 
will not have to be urged to play, but will be glad to go 
tlirough he worli necessary to 'give the representative 
Dine or eleven. 

The gymnasium down town was started by the men 
who are now officers of the Athletic AseoclaUon, and 

immediately after the Holidays, netting wilt t>e put up 
over the windows and those who wish to join the ball 
nine will have an opportunity to practice. Of course 
this practice will count largely in favor of those who 
wish to get on the team in theeprlng. 

These moves certainly ought to bring out the beet 
athletic talent in tiie University. Especially those who 
desire to he on the l>all nine should practice all winter 
at some good exercise. Batting Is to have its due promi- 
nence in discriminating between players and good 
muscle is the greatest help to good batting. 

Ttiegymna-sium does not need any more members 
to support It and the limit Is nearly if not quite reached. 
Those however who desire to practice for the purpose 
of getting on one of the teams in the spring will be 

The management of the base-ball nine especially 
has always been rather loose and we doubt if the U. of 
M. has ever had a truly representative team. Under the 
new management we see no reason to doubt that we 
will have tlie best possible team In the spring. CeTtainly 
every inducement is offered to calt out the best players. 
The best man for each position Is to be chosen. With 
the increased interest this will insure a good man iu 
every position. 

We are glad for the honor of our University, that 
Ihese steps have been taken. If we are to have a 
base-ball team at all we should and can have one second 
to no western college nine. All the steps have been 
taken to secure such a nine and we firmly believe that 
we will have one in the spring that will do honor to our 
University. The weak point in our nine has for some 
years been in our catcher. This will no longer be the 
case. We will have one in the spring who is second to 
no amateur catcher in the country. By many he is 
considered the equal of most of the League catchers. 

Building on this foundation we will have a nine that 
should beat almost any western team. Pat. 

EsiTOBS Cuhonicle: 

During the past few days the writer of this commu- 
nication has had addressed to bim so many times the 
question, "Haveyou heard about the Latin play?" that be 
now undertakes to say publicly that he hoe heard about it 
and to disclose what he has heard. The subject was men- 
tioned by Prof. Qayley to certain members of his classes 
lastyearwhiiethey were reading the plays of Tereuce, but 
as the class of 'S4 was then under tlie restraints peculiar 
to Freshman existence, no action was taken. The sub- 
ject bad no sooner been suggested this year, however, 
than the sophomoresappropriated the Idea. They seem to 
feel confldent that they have plenty of raw material for 
theworkin theirowu body. That the successful perform- 
ance of one of the comedies of Terence or Plautus would 
enhance the reputation of our University is unques- 
tioned and would arouse an Interest In the claseios 
among the students, has been shown by experience.

0OLLEQE work by the proresaora, and the saUrles 
paid to them for It, are thlnga little undentood &□<! 
apprecialed by the raoHt of ub. The fact has been brought 
to our attention not by coi)ven<ationD with any of iiur 
inatructore upon that point, but Tvjto noticing the noble 
way in which their salaries are spent and with which 
their time Is occupied. When we call upon them in 
their studies we are surprised at the rare and valuable 
books which adorn their shelves. • When we know how 
their time is passed we are aatouished at the amount 
coiiiiumed in study. In order to keep up with the rapid 
change« and progression of knowledge everywhere these 
l>ooka and this application are necessary. The time 
Bftent in the claas room, which Is too apt to be considered 
the prl nelple amount of work done, Is a small part of 
that really required. Then too, the vacations are not 
thrown away hy thia busy class, for we find them dur- 
ing the warm aeaaon studying history In tbe large eaat- 
eru libraries, literature in London, languages in Paris, 
sciences in Germany. Now, as nothing so broadens a 
mind as travel and the reading of great authors, it is we 
who are unable to go to other lands or obtain many val- 
uable books who receive an ine>tlmable amount of good 
ttoai those researches. But foreign travels and large 
private libraries are costly and must come from what 
there is left of a small salary above necessary expenses. 
The salaries formerly were more ample, but bard times 
cut them down. There is now not that excuse, and con- 
sidering tbe i;ood use to which tiiey are put, tbey should 
be considerably raiaed. It la true that a few professors 
are lazy and do not vary their jokes or lectures from 
year to year, but the majority are enthusiastic In their 
work and should not be hampered by them. Give 
larger salaries, then our Uaiverslty will not be a train- 
ing school of professors for other colleges where merit 
receives its proper reward. 

GERMAN Universities and their methods of Instruc- 
tion are so far above all others in excellence that 
they may serve aa models for ua, and thus help ux in 
many ways to the perfection of our own system. Presi- 
dent Frieze in hla recent report has discussed the ques- 
tion of the conferring of degrees. The point ia suoii a 
good one that it Is well worth our while to consider ii. 
Unfortunately la most of our English and American 
universities there has been a conflict between the Bach- 
elorand the Master degrees. Instead of the fomierguard* 
Ing the tatter It has overcome it, and so fit r usurped Its 
rights that after the graduate has obtained this first de- 
gree the second usually surrenders to falm without fur- 
ther toll or trouble. The contest has been a more sturdy 
one with us In Michigan, and the Master Is led captive 
hy the Bachelor, only after at least a year's hard study 
and original research. But the Jklgher degree haa pre- 
vailed at the ex pen ae of its popularity, fur who would 
spend this extra year working fur It when at nearly 
every other university It would be given freely to any 
one having the lower degree? We have been calling to 
the mountain for twenty years. It has not come to us. 
Let ua go to It. In other woi'ds, since by the action of a 
great majority of eastern and European unlveraitlce the 
Master's degree has been lowered, and as it is not within 
our power to elevate it, let us at once put it where it really 
Is; that la,at the graduation of the atudent. Then the very 
honorable degree of Doctor of Philosophy can be given 
after an additional year's study if the candidate can 
pass a rigid examination. This Is by no means a sur- 
render or a lowering of the standard. We are striving 
for the highest success. It can not be obtained by such 
unfair competition, so the tactics should be changed and 
the campaign carried forward on a new plan. 

With the Germans the Doctorate Is obtained after a 
schooling of alxteen or seventeen years. With iis that 
length of time only brings us to our Baccalaureate. 
Added to this must be two years of application before 
we can receive the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. Bo 
our atudents who ceitainly have aa much ability aa 
llieir German friends have to spend two or three 
more years in college in acquiring an education not 
superior, to aay the least, to theira. 

After a student by a rigid examination haa shown a 
complete knowledge and comprehension of the studies 
pursued, the title of Doctor of Philosophy would bea proud 
one for blm to carry, as it would not he tainted hy its 
free dlatributlon to unworthy peraons by other colleges, 
aa la the Master's degree now. In thia way many more 
would be induced to remain at the University for tbe 
five years. In order to obtain that high rank In a reas- 
onable length of time. The higher culture would then 
be attained by more, and our University work would 
receive an Impulse to drive it to a continually Increasing 
point of excellence. Since these things are so we believe 
tiiat good, both to the cause of education and to our own 
University, may be efiboted hy a change of degree*.

At a nieetiiig of the Board of Directors of the Ath- 
letic ABSOClatloD, held on Monday evening laHt, the 
question wuB considered of holding a meeting for ath- 
letic sports, sometime before the close of the law depart- 
ment. It seems to ub that this Is a movement in the 
right direction. We have a goodly numberof students. 
We dealre to hold field sports. To make these a success, 
all of the students must be interested. The members 
of the law department, under the existing arrange- 
ments, are, of course, unable to compete at the sprlug 
meetings, and the present project is for the purpoee of 
giving them a chance to compete at two meetings dur- 
itig the year. 'W hen It is understood that many of the 
prizes can be held only after being twice won, the need 
for some such arrangement can be better appreciated. 
The laws certainty made an enviable ehowlng at our 
fall meeting, and all who are Interested In raising the 
Dnivettit]/ Tccordt, must see the need of offering suitable 
and equal Inducements to all the athletes In the Uni- 
versity. The plan proposed is to hire the opera house. 
If possible, for wrestling, boxing, horizontal bar, etc., 
and armory hall for walking mutches. By ibis nieaue 
nearly all of an ordinary programme can be given. 
Spme may object from a financial standpoint, but the 
association la reasonably sure of paying expenses, and 
until field day sports are well established as a yearly 
feature, we tbluk no one ought to ask or expect more. 

It has been thought by the few whose tastes are Id 
the direction of base ball that If a League should be 
formed among the Westeru,Colleges, the lack of Interest 
taken in this sport might to some extent be disputed, 
and, Indeed, It was not considered unfavorable lo.arouse 
for baae ball an Intereat equal to that shown for foot ball. 

Accordingly with this object in view several of the West- 
ern Colleges were requested to send delegates to a meet- 
ing to be held In Chicago, Friday, December 23, 1881. 
At this meeting Northweateru University, Racine Col- 
lege and Michigan University were represented; Madison 
University bad signified her intention of being repre- 
sented, but for some reason not known thedelegate failed 
to appear. However, Madison will In all probability 
become a member of the League before the first series of 
games are played. When the delegates csuie together 
tlietr first duty was to decMe upon the fea-tlblUty of 
forming such a League. This was but the work of a 
moment as all seemed to be heartily in Ibvor of the 
scheme. This having been decided upon, they then or- 
ganized with the following officers : President, F. W. 
Davenport, of Miclilgan University ; Secretary and 
Treasurer, C. C. Tybbe, of Racine College, and two mem - 
bersof an Executive Committee from each college, those 
from U. of M. being R. M. Dott and Y. P. Antle. The 
constitution governing the Eastern League wa« adopted 
in fofoBubJectto any changes that may be deemed advis- 
able. It was further decided that the trophy of cham- 
pionship be a silver ball. The arrangement of the first 
series of games Is in the bands of the Executive Com- 
mittee and the dates are not yet decided upon. It is In- 
tended that each nine should play once on the home 
grounds of the remaining nines, thus making fur each a 
total of six games to play. Succeed to the enterprise. 

On the evening of the 18th Qov. Fetch lectured on 
" Recollections of tbe Life of Daniel Webster," In the 
assembly room of the law department, the occasion 
being the lOOtli anniversary of Webster,s birth-day. 
Few men could be better fitted to give so Just a critique 
on the subject In all of Its pliaws than Qov. Felch, 
Identified as he has been with the political history of 
tbe country for the past half century or more, and as 
the contemporary of Webster, Clay and Calhoun, Justice 
of the supreme court, governor, representative in con- 
gress and senator, his vast experience and matured 
Judgment must add to the general Interest. Burely U

full of honor And of years. Dauiel Webster, born and 
reared under tlie eombra sLade^of &It. Waslungton, it 
fostered his poetic sentiment; matured under the 
traiuinK and rigid sense of New England, he was 
bold, conscientious and sagacious ; thus by nature and 
training fltted for the prntulnent part uf xtatesmau, 
orator, forensic debator and expounder of law. Cir- 
cumstances demanded JUKt uuch men. Leaders of the 
Bevotutlon were fast passing away. Articles of con- 
federation liad been t-igned, tlie Federal coustitutlon 
adopt«d, before he entered on bis profession. Qrevl' 
ously laid experimeuts were maturing, tlie states had 
broken away from a monarchical regime, the peoph 
ignored kings, nobility and the church ; the crude ideas 
of self-government were to he trained and restrained. 
Then Webster, the devotee of professional hihor and the 
favored geuius, came into prominence. As a lawyer, in 
bis early years even, he was noted for his marked abil- 
ity ; every effort showed care in arrangement; every 
argument led to an uuauswerable concision. Websler 
himself took mout pride in his part in the steamlwat 
and Dartmouth college cases. In tlie farmer he argued 
the supremacy of the government to regulate the ship- 
ping, howsoever propelled ou all navigable waters on and 
within the boundry of the United States. First to 
Webster are we indebted for our present arterial system 
of navigation. In the latter lie argued with Irresistible 
force, the constitutional provision of the Inviolability 
of contracts ; that a charter granted by a foreign gov- 
ernment was not effected by a change of ruling power. 
From discussions of this character he gained the name 
of "expounder of the constitution." By many he is 
known for his public addressee, indeed, Adams said 
Burke was no longer entitled to first praise. With a 
calm forethought he watched the fa^t receedliig bound- 
aries of the country, augmented by grants from Eng- 
land, France and Spain ; the nation busied with Indus- 
tries and art, and Increasing with a foreign population. 
As secretary of state bis sagacious diplomacy averted 
difQcultles In the north-eastern boundary questions. His 
speech in sympatiiy for Greece on the Grecian resolu- 
tion has been translated inio all civilised tongues. Gov. 
Felch's recollections uf Webster's reply to Hayne was 
of peculiar interest. Three hours before-the doors were 
opened people besieged the capltol. At twelve noon 
the galleries were crowded, ladies came upon the floor 
.of the senate, the seats were tilled, theaisles were block- 
ed, the very air was ladened with anxious expectation, 
fOr vague rumor said Webster would retract some of his 
utterances against the subject of slavery. Mr. Webster 
began in a slow and labored manner, neither vehement 
nor excited ; anuimated, his utterances so clear and lu- 
cid, favorable conclusion musthave followed. Although 
he did not violate his pledge, yet tbe impending conflict 
was too near for his coucliiatory words. He never made 
a speech that gave him so much trouble. Fancuil Hall 
was closed to him only to t>e opened again when the peo- 

ple saw that risking his good name and thesupport of his 
constituents, he was honest in his convictions, bold in 
presenting them and true to the nation as a whole. 
Webster was no mere politician, but a statesman at his 
best iu diucussing national and constitutional questions. 
As a forensic debater he was witliout a peer. In litera- 
ture his speeches are classical land marks inseparable 
from the history of tlie country. The speaker closed his 
remarks by stating the fact that within two years of 
each other, Calhoun, Clay and Webster departed from 
this earth. 

The address of Sherman B. Rogers, In the law lec- 
ture room, on Saturday evening, before the Civil Ser- 
vice Reform Association, was largely attended. Mr. 
Rogers spoke of the present condition of the civil service 
and its evil influence upon the character of oBlcials and 
especially In its control of elections. Over eighty thous- 
and non-political otBces. together with the hundreds of 
thousands of positions fliled by laborers, are now con- 
sidered as the legitimate spoils of tbe victors, and are 
parceled out to those who can render the greatest party 
service. While it Is not the object of the Civil Service 
Reform Association to alter the manner of appointing 
officers who in the legitimate discliarge of their duties 
as such, influence the policy of the administration of 
government; it Is the object of the association to creat« 
a public sentiment which will demand the reform of 
this abuse of power, and devise better metliods for the 
disposition of these offices. The speaker traced tlie his- 
tory of our civil service from the beginning of our gov- 
ernment to the present, and found the first step in its 
departure from sound principles during the adminisira- 
tion of John Adams, which step consisted in tilling all 
vacancies by the appointment of political friends. This 
naturally led to another step, under Jelftrson, the re- 
moval of a sufficient number to give his party an equal 
share of tlie offices. No further movements in this di- 
-were made until the passage of a bill during 
I's administration, which limited the term of 
government employees to four years, aud thus gave to 
the appointing power an opportunity to give all posi- 
tions to Its friends without Incurring the odium of re- 
moving meritorious officers. But Jackson was not sat- 
isfied with this stow process of freeing liie public service 
of political oppunents, and so openly announced tbe 
doctrine " Co Che victors belong the spoils," in support 
of bis actions. According to Madison's construction, 
which lias always been the generally received view, the 
President has Che power of removal from all offices of 
the executive department. The present condition of 
the civil service Is the natural product of this weakness

tem," which is but another name for a gigantic bribe, 
in creiitlng aucb a iicriiiabte for oOlce is conducing, not 
to political health, but to decay. 

In view of the eudden death of Mr. Noyes A. Dar- 
ling of the Dental DeparCtnent of thin Universlly, It in 
not unflttlng to give a short account of his life among 
ufi, and eHpecialiy of his taft Illness. Mr. Darling came 
to \nn Arbor it) the fall of '80, registered from Lalce 
Ridge in this State, and mutrlciilated in the College of 
I>ental Surgery. In the winter of '81, he was elected by 
the editors ot The University ta the responsible position 
of secretary and treasureruf that periodical. The cause 
and cliaracterof Mr. Darling's last illness are tonie- 
what nl>scure. He was busy during tli« aHernoon 
of the Slst ult. in changing Ills quarters. The con- 
sequent fatigue was considerable, and In the evening 
Mr. Darling felt chilly sensations, which however did 
not amout to an actual chill. The next day, which was 
the first of the new year, he took to the bed from which 
be was destined not to rise, in health. On Monday the 
symptoms were so obscure that the doctor was unable to 
form a diagnosis. Wednesday Mr. Darling felt much 
better. But on Friday be became so much worse that 
Dr. Palmer was called. He loade a careful physical ex- 
amlnatloD but fkiled to find any very marked signs. He 
at first thought the case might be in some way connected 
with the dissecting room, but on further inquiry gave 
up this Idea. His Intellect was clear until within one 
half hour of his death, which occurred at 4 o'clock Sun- 
day morning ; aferwards a post mortem was held. 
Signs uf pneuHionia and of grave heart disease were 
found. But it Is believed that the symptoms also Indi- 
cated some profound though obscure poisoning of the 
organic nerve centers. Wednesday morning his remains 
were followed to the depot by a long line of students 
who took this opportunity of showing a last act of res- 
pect to their dead comrade. 

With one exception. Ecullle Oavin and the Swedish 
Lady (Quartette furnished us the poorest entertainment 
thus far given under the auapiues of the present board. 
We were prepared for mediocre elocution, but not for 
such as Miss Oavin furnished ; she utterly failed in her 
rendition, of the "Taming of The Shrew" and "Medea." 
Her gestures. Intonation and accentuation being par- 
tlcuUtrly faulty. Her t>est forte, she as well as the audi- 
ence, Judging (tem the numerous errors, was considered 
to be humerous readings ; but these In ouroplnlou were 
but little better rendered than they would have t>een by 
any semi-professional elocutionist. The Quartette ' 
pleased a little better, but they are not beyond the reach | 
of criticism; their voices, although singly possessing 
peculiar sweetness, together were somewhat inharmon- 
ious, a defect thut long training and much experience I 

on the stage did not seem to be able to overcome. Again 
there was an apparent uncertainty as to their own abili- 
ties and a lack of power that would naturally be promi- 
nent In so large a hall. Their moat marked success was 
achieved in Vogel's Waits Song and Dietrich's arrange- 
ment of Suwanes River, while their mediocrity was 
shown most plainly in Johnke's "Ave Maria." On the 
whole we were grievously disappointed In the evening's 
entertainment, having been led, by the former enter- 
tainments of the winter, to expect something better 
than we received. The audience Itdelf contributed some- 
wliat to the discomfiture of the evening, by continually 
encoring the performers, utterly IndltTerent whether or 
Dot the piece possessed merit. One wonders if this Is 
the boasted cullure of our university town that Is so 
carried away by Burdette'a " Brake man at Church" 
and Hall's "Debatin' Society " ; upon sober reflection 
he l>ecome8 convinced that " culture " It cannot l>e tbat 
strives to gain double the value of its money by sucb 
frequent aud impartial e 

It is with feelings of pleasure that we already see 
signs of activity on the part of the Athletic Association 
and those interested In Athletic sports._ One result of 
this la the formation of tlie Base Ball League, of which 
an account Is given in this Issue. That this Is a step in 
the right direction no one will deny. It will present to 
us a chance of seeing games in which there is something 
at stake, namely, the reputation of our University which 
ought to Ite of universal Interext. This thought ought, 
and no doubt will, Incite the members of the nine to put 
forth their strongest eSbrts to win a game or loee it on 
its merits. It should also bring the members of our Uni- 
verslty that are not so fortunate an to belong to the nine, 
to a realizatioQ of what their duties are. We should en- 
courage the nine in their work by large and regular at- 
tendance on all games on the campus, and whenever an 
appeal is made for money we should answer It liberally. 
Then also the move towards an early Field-Day for the 
benefit of the laws is a good one and deserves support. 
But there Is another move that should be made at once, 
and in connection with the Base- Ball League. We refer 
to a Foot-Ball League. If such a League had been 
In existence last Fall, we would have had a team in 
good practice and training ready lo send East at any 
moment, and not one that had to be picked out and 
trained after the gamea were arranged. It is not our 
Intention to cast any reflections on the team that repre- 
sented ua last Fall, for it did nobly and fought the games 
well. But let us learn a lesson from our experience, 
and, If this League is formed, we will never he entirely 
unprepared for such games. Now let the Athletic Asso- 
ciation take this well In hand and push it to completion. 
Or If they feel that already they have as much as they 
can attend to, lot some euterpriHing men take hold of 
this matter. But above all let the college In general, 
now that a move has been made in the way of Athletic 
sports, lend their eadeavors to keep the ball rolling.

Dear Reader, I have a cnee— I do not mean merely 
the cartilaginoua protuberance that, mountain -like, re- 
lieves the otherwise level waete of the human physiog- 
nomy ; but a noee taken in a metaphorical sense, a 

suBceptibtllty to odors— as we analogously apply ear to 
an appreelatlnn of music. Do not imagine that I Intend 
to deny to others the capability of exercising their olfac- 
tory nerves. But the ordinary nose is for the most part 
unaffected ; It may feel repugnance at some offensive 
smell and experience a mild and chastened delight at 
the delicate perfume of some odoriferous bud, though 
normally It Is passive and not responsive to the multlfa- 
rluuB exhalations that pervade whatever spot we are in. 
You, seated In your room, perhaps, at this moment, dis- 
tinguish not the BcetitB that emanate from the chairs, 
tables, books, and htpestrled — not to speak of the less 
perceptible odors of Bngers on books and furniture, and 
of foot-steps on the carpet. 

You have knowD some one— mayiw are so consti- 
tuted yourself^with such an exquisite sensitiveness to 
uiuitic, tliat he is maddened by discords or any Inhar- 
mnnious sounds, and so ravished by sweet melodies, so 
enthralled by rapturous symphonies as to Imagine him- 
self a participant Id the beatitudes of the blest. The 
ecstacy tliat such an one feels in listening to harmonies 
is nothing comparable to the ravishment I experience 
In the redolence of a budding rose. My nostrils invol- 
untarily dilate to drink in the sweetness that thrills my 
whole being. This sensution Is more felicitating than 
the lover's first kiss— I suppose so merely ; for on ac- 
count of certain unsavory opiuions oDce heedlessly ex- 
pressed, having been rejected by seventeen maidens be- 
fore having even ofTered myself, I fear greatly that I 
shall never be subjectively conscious of that oblectatlou. 
The one with the delicate ear has his nerves racked by 
the filing of a saw or the screeching of a horse-fiddle. 
One with mysupergensitlvenose is inexpressibly pained 
by fumes that by others are unnoticed, and the steuch 
from a reeking mass of putrid refuse fills me with a 
io&thing and disgust in comparison with which the tor- 
tures of the damned would be paradisiacal. 

Almost everybody is susceptible to the influence of 
music; I suppose there Is no exception, from the pam- 
pered Sytuirite to the aiithropopbagus — not eveu the 
nonsensical vegetarian—, to those that relish edibles ; 
but as yet I have found no human sympathy in the pe- 
culiarities of my proboscis. My dog alone appreciates 
my nasal organism. Together we stroll through wood 
and field, delighting In a world of sensations, which to 
you, poor reader, must be unintelligible. Beyond the 
ordinary fragrances of the forest, we detect the recent 
presence of whatever beast of the field tliat has crossed 
our track — even of whatever bird that lias fiown in our 
vicinity. That you may Judge somewhat of my percep- 
tion of sceut, I can tell from a thousand persons the one 
to whom belongs the glove you may hand me. All! I 
have one little glove treasured away, the odor of which 
brings the mantliog blood to uy cheek ; and a certain 
perfume — the perfume that she uses, you must know, 
kind reader,— it matters not where or when I smell it,

Hlwava makes my whole rram« tingle with delight. 
There 1b hardly an oJor tliat doe^ not bring back recol- 
leotlone eltlierof tender dreaiua of long ago or vexatious 
annoyances. The scent or the locust tree revivea viv- 
idly the Fourth of July when I wag living ray slxtl) 
BUmmer. IiH me remark that that was many years 
ago, and from then to now when my raven locks are 
becoming streaked with gray, many events more im- 
portant are forgotten, or at least not remembered so dis- 
tinctly. I was comlDg back from a shop where I bad 
Invested all my little change in flre-works, eujnying in 
imagination the pop of the crackers, tlie sboot of the 
rockets, the flsz of the nigger-chasers, and the scintilla- 
tions of tiie Itre-wheels, wlien Bonie ragamufflns. Imps 
of the gutter, surrounded me and threw their lighted 
crackers about my bare feet. I jumped around in an 
ecHtacy of fear, rage, and pain ; and In these violent 
saltations my armful of treasured brillianciea fell to the 
ground and caught Are from the explosion of the ene- 
mies' shells. As if I were a victim at the stake, these 
howling Uodoc»JoUied hands and circled In a war-dance 
around lue, who was suffering the tortures of a martyr ; 
and their hellish whoops and yells were by no means 
drowned by the crackingand booming of the flro-wiirks. 
Physical pain is not as excruciating as mental anguish 
— on the strength of which proposition, advanced spec- 
ulative theclogians substitute the remorseful paugs of n 
guilty conscience for a hell of literal fire and brimstone. 
And the pains of this little hades of lire and sulphurous 
fumes with its ministering Imps, were nothing beside 
the mental agony I aufttred at the thought that I was 
furnishing the fuel for my own torture, and that for 
months I had aaved up the coppers with which to buy 
these materials to celebrate, as every true- hearted 
American citizen— under a dozen years— should do, the 
anniversary of my country's birth. When freed from 
the hands of these young fire-eatera, with streaming 
eyes and voice vociferously asserting that I should tell 
my ma, I rushed home to weep out those sorrows on my 
mother's breast. Anathematized be those igniferous 
flends ! As I said above, this Is the scene that the 
smell of the locust-tree recalls. And old as I now am, 
the odor from that tree makes the blood rush to my face 
and causes my fist to clench— and then the next instant 
I laugh a low, quiet laugh to niyself to think that after 
so many years the remembrance of such a trivial occur- 
rence should arouse my anger against such worthless 
creatures. But why should I give further instances of 
the Joys and sorrows that this nose of mine hassub- 
ject«d me to, when I see by that yawn that you, indul- 
gent reader, do not— nay, can not— sympathize with 

You ask then why I should have talked about my 
nose at all? A very pertinent question and hard to an- 
swer. But it Is suci) a very peculiar nose, a thoroughly 
unique nose, that I had to tell some one about It, and I 

knew (hat ynu, aearetlve reader, would make the beat 
kind of a confidant. Let me presume a little further 
upon your good nature, and talk a very little more about 
my nose, about some of its idloaynorasles which, being 
purely physical and not dealing with nasal sensations, 
you will more readily comprehend, and be, perhaps, 
more interested in. Mine Is not a Roman nose, nor a 
Grecian, nor an Irish pug, nor a Spanish hook- It owns 
no nationality. Neitiier is It one of those sharp-pointed 
inquisitive uoses, nor one of tiiose broad, flat, good-na- 
tured noses. It is impossible lo describe anything by 
negatives; and so you shall not discover exactly what 
my nose is like. It is true that I liave taken you into 
my confidence, but you must not ask me to commit my- 
self, as I am unwilling to crowd myself upon the pub- 
lic's attention. But leaving out of consideration any 
definite description of its appearance, there are one or 
two peculiarities of my nose that would be interesting 
even in an ordinary one. In the fir^t place It Is deli- 
cately sensitive to variations of temperature. It is a 
thermometer that I have with me constantly. When I 
am seated before the grate, It responds with a cheery 
glow to the blaze of the coals; when I Au» the harsh 
winds it becomes — pardon the Indelicacy of the simile, 
but I know of none more expressive— as red, tender, 
audjulcy as a sirloin steak; so that whether warm or 
cold, Ibis nose of mine Is In a ruddy condition, which, 
alas! no amount of pearl-powder can conceal. You 
may Judge, impartial reader, of the damage such a 
lamentable trait does to a person's reputation I 

Not only is my proboscis extremely sensitive to heat 
and cold, but it is even more tender to knocks and blows. 
Boiue of you may know the agony that a pet oorn ooca- 
eions. If so, you have some faint glimmering of the 
care with which I guard my nose. A large part of this 
timorousness for this chief ornament of the human head 
is inherent with me, but I think that no Inconsiderable 
portion of It Is due to a mishap of my youth. I at- 
tempted to take away the eggs from a setting hen— she 
flew at me like a Fury and snipped a blllful from the 
very heart of my central feature. In grief and terror I 
darted for the house to seek maternal consolation, but 
on the way ran my poor bleeding nose against a post 
which my eyes were too full of tears to permit me to 
see It was a f&rtnlght before any one could look at my 
nose without making rae wince. I never walk In the 
dark now without holding my hand l>efore my nose. I 
never venture forth upon the streets in winter-time but 
that I fear some ill-starred urcliin may hit with a snow- 
ball this delicate member. 1 do not think that natur- 
ally I am a coward ; but, though I am a lai^e and strong 
man, I am afraid of the fist of the merest stripling. One 
blow from the puniest arm would send me howling from 
the contest. Consequently, any one can with impunity 
heap upon me Insults which an hundred years ago the 
recreant's blood alone could expiate. But I have seen

tboge who have Insulted me and (ben called me coward 
bfoaune I would not fight, turn fail and fly fmni the 
gory battle- field, while I unulded and alone chained the 
serried rankti of the enemy. No, I am not a coward, 
though Ihia nose of mine has brought upon roe imputa- 
tions derogatory to my bravery. 

Having had to guard my nose so anxiouuly and care 
for it so lollcitously, I have quite come to love and ad- 
mire It. But there Is nne thing that troubles me. My 
nose per le Is a beauty, but it In not attached to my faue 
eymmetrlirally. It inclines to the riKlit si a cnnKider- 
able angle, say of flTteen degrees. For years tliis bait 
been a source of annoyance to me, not merely because 
it spoils the harmony of my countenance, but because 
when I attempt lo look to the left it interferes with the 
sight of my right eye. It even bothers me sometimes 
in reading. Often have I speculated on the probable 
cauiseuf Its situation. A young lady whose nose was 
also inclined to one side once mo<lestly intimated that 
nature had been kind enuugh to push our noses aside, 
so that the oscuiatory perfonnance might be gone 
through with the more easily and without undergoing 
that twisting of the neck which others have to endure 
to attain the same end; and that the lips of pereons 
with noses BO placed could be sealed together more com- 
pletely and satisfactorily than the lipsof tliose whose 
noses have not been put on so fortunately — as she was 
facetious enough to express it — and who are compelled 
by tbelr stralKht noses to make a crosa-flre, as it were, 
at a kiss, n^m which Inconvenience ouly slight portions 
of their lips come in contact. I profited by the sugges- 
tion, but the explanation— not the suggestion nor its 
result— seemed unsatisfactory. Of all tlie theories I 
have evolved to account for this unkind disposition of 
so prominent a portion of my make-up, this one seems 
to me the most plausible: From Infancy I have slept on 
my right side. Consequently, when my nose was In a 
plastic, cartilaginous state, the force of gravity—like a 
thief In the night— drew It towards the center of the 
earth, i. e., towards my right side, which was down. I 
noticed not its gradual drifting till, unfortunately, it had 
passed through the formative stage and become irre- 
trievably Axed In the position it at present occupies. 
Durum ! Sed Icviug JU paHentia, 
Quidquid corHgere est nt^at. 

Dear reader, when you see a person with a mon- 
strous—there, I did not Intend to divulge the unpleas- 
ant fact, but It slipped out. Yes, I have a lai^e nose, a 
very large nose, an exceedingly large nose. My father 
bad a very long nose, my mother bad a very broad nose, 
and ttie long and the broad of it is, tliat I have taken 
after Iwth of them. I say, when you see a person with 
a huge proboscis, do not laugh and scoff— you know not 
what rapturous sensations of delight or convulsive shiv- 
eriugs of disgust be receives through that nose; you 
cannot sympathize with his sensitlvenetw to the inclem- 

ency of the weather, with his terror of fists, and with 
ills shrinking from public gaze; least of all can you 
understand how that nose may bring upon the bravest 
man Imputations of cowardice. 

The statement Inadvertently escaped me that my 
nose was a monstrosity. Do not think, inquisitive 
reader, titat from that slip you shall discover my per- 
sonality. I shall court the seclusion of my flreBlde,aDd 
in the sympathy of my famlly-clrule seek solace from 
the unfeeling Jests of the coarse world, till whatever 
curiosity this confession may excite has subsided. 


X ,Jan.ai8t.l8S2. 

Dear Chch,— Though you have not yet answered 
my last letter, I must Inflict another upon you to let you 
know about a young lady that I have met here, who 
seems to have been fashioned by a wise Providence for 
your affinity. If it were not to communicate such an 
iniportaut matter, I should maintain the silence that 
your negligence justly merits. As it Is, when we meet 
again, you must atone for your epistolary dellnquenclea 
by giving me a whole evening of your conversation. 

My stay in this delightful burg, as you know, has 
been at the house of a cousin. This couslnship— she is 
a niece of my great uncle's fourth wife— serves as an 
excellent cloak to my Interest in the damsel. Sliebada 
little dance in her parlors last evening. It was there 
that I met Aesthttica. Her Oscar Wilde sentimentality 
Is awfully. Her appearance is just quite. Her dancing 
Is extremely utter. And her conversation Is really too 
too. Never before had I realized the full capabilities of 
of our venacular. Last night my dreams were haunted 
by utterly horrific too loo awful visions. To one with 
your love of philological studies, an half-hour with this 
beguiling creature would i)e a source of entertainment 
and profit (proflt— for you could give a prophetic pros- 
pectus of the dictionary of our language a decade or so 

hence); but to me, alas! ~^! Welt, anyhow my 

allegiance to my cousin would not permit me to listen 
to the blandishments of the Syren. For Aesthetica is a 
Syren. Golden hair, not the flery brilliancy of red nor 
the dead yellow of bleached hair, but the genuine arti- 
cle, real old-gold. A complexion for which the stereo- 
typed phrase of roses and lilUes is Inadequate. A form 
like Hebe's (H. M. S. Pinafore). The symmetrical out- 
line of her face Is adorned by the most exquisite features: 
hazel eyes, large and soft, that melt or glow with her 
varying moods (Byrdn) ; the cutest little nose (Tenny- 
son) ; andaperfect rose-bud of amouth(Aldrlch). And 
she knows how to use these charms aesthetically. She 
puckers her mouth and shows her teeth aesthetlcAlly, 
and she dilates her nostrils aesthetically, and she ogle* 
aud squints and bats her eyes aesthetically. Now, my 
dear feUow, that is just the girl for you. It may seem

paradoxical that such a gay butterfly ehoulil felicitate 
tbi'lire of a recluse and book-worm, as you are. Her 
pretty ways, however, wouliJ be a pleasant and relieving 
contrBHt to your severe labors; ber beautiful face and 
figure woulil furnish you a center around which to group 
youriDOHt ardeulaiid poetical thoughts ; and iier utterly 
too too vocabulary would be an invaluable stintulunt in 
your etymological researches. 

Besides these, there are other considerations which 
should lead you to choose Aesthetics for your life-part- 
ner. You area very modest and retiring youth, do not 
seeic young ladle:i' society, and consequently, when you 
find yourself in their presence, are somewhat diffident 
and distrustful of yourself. Now, If by chance your 
a&ections should light upon some fair maiden equally 
bashful and your love should be reciprocated, you and 
she might cast sheep's glances at each other from t>e- 
tween your fingers atadlstauce; but the protwbllities 
are that you would never get near enough together to 
tel) the tale of mutual love. But Aesthetlua would place 
you Id do such em harrasaiiig predicament — shebasaway 
of taking your arm, unsolicited, that would quite re- 
iisBure the timidest young man. One of your coy nature 
needs a good deal of encouragement, and I am sure that 
she would give It. This is a very strong point In ber 

The argunieuts Id Aeetbetlca's behalf, Z have ar- 
ranged In the order of a climax. I now proceed to bring 
forth the last and most powerful one. You say, " Even 
conceding that this unknown fair one is all you say she 
is, and would make me the most desirable kind of a 
help-mate, bow in the world can I, on the mere pittance 
that is given a teacher, support a girl that has b 
brought up In luxury? I can't do it." Yes, you < 
my dear Achates; and this fact, though a negative 
gument, is thestrongest reason why you should take one 
who has been apparently cut out for you. You always 
said that you wanted a highly bred and educated girl, 
but that you should be compelled to be a bachelor on 
account of the impossibility of supporting such a ga- 
zelle on a pedagogue's salary. Kow here is a young lady 
that Just suits your taste, and against whom you cannot 
urge that objection. Her malutenance wilt be no heav- 
ier than that of a canary bird. She has dresses enough 
(with an occasional calico for a Christmas gift) to last 
her the rest of ber life — in the quiet town in which you 
will be an honored professor. And her food will be les 
expensive even than that of the canary above men 
tloned. I will proceed U> explain : 

I told you that I met this charming .^sthetioa at i 
dance in my cousin's house. I danced the first waltz 
with her. She has got the testhetic movement to per- 
fection— a cUng-to-me-love-like-a-vine kind of dancing. 
After the waltz she wanted a drink of water. There 
was none In the room, so I escorted her to the side-board 
In the dimly lighted dining-room. She haa got the les- 

thetlc walk to distraction — a come-and-hold-me-up-or- 
I' II- fid I -to- pieces kind of walk. As she took my arm 
with a nestie-close-to-me air, I felt thrills of delight 
traverse my spinal column. A young man more senti- 
mental tlian I au (you know I am a plain, matter of 
fact, unromantlc sort of creature) would have said that 
his Aear< thrilled with rapture; but then his sentimen- 
lallty would prevent bis being calm and obwrrant 
enough exactly to locate the origin and path of those 
sensations; but I was cotlectcd^I analyzed my sensa- 
tions, and knew those thrills, which are vulgarly sup- 
posed to agitate the heart, ran up and down my back. 
We had a very pleasant little talk. It is unnecessary to 
relate our eonveriwtlon while In this twilight seclusion. 
Bhe detained me there till her partner for the next dance 
ferreled her out. To make a long story short, I led her 
out to water eight times that evening. Inasmuch as I 
enjoyed the society of another more, you can imagine 
that tliese frequent Imbibings became, to say the least, 
monotonous. The last time I watered ber twice; she 
took the bint and did not ask me again. That evening 
in the solitude of my chamber I reflected upon ber con- 
duct. It could not be that her epiglottis needed so much 
lubrication. A horrible thought struck me — the thought 
of a suit for breach 0/ promise, in which tlie circum- 
slance tliat I had withdrawn her from the gay throng 
to go together alone Into a deserted and dimly-lighted 
room would l>e very damaging evidence, came over me 
like a nigbt-mare. But my alarms were allayed the 
next morning, when on inquiry I found that she had no 
designs upon my happiness, but that water was the 
principal article of ber diet; in fact, that water and the 
tafiy wbicli she succeeded in extracting from reluc- 
tant youths were her staple food. Can not you support 
suoli a dainty creature? On the supposition that you 
could, I made her an offer of your band, with the stipu- 
lation, however, that after the honey-moon she should 
demand no more substantial nutriment than at present. 
She has the matter In consideration. Telegraph me at 
once whether I shall press the offer, or let it drop. 

In haste, a. atiiLi£.

EVERY ONE lovee to see hlmeelf In print At flret 
hie name itt eufildebt ; afterwardp, he must have hie 
Ideas to read, and ofleD reread. The college man 1b full 
of ideaB and (.-annot wait until be graduates tti expreaa 
them, BO he muet have a medium. Hence arises college 
Journalism. In Yale, forty-Beveu years ago, appeared 
the Literary Magazine, now the oldest living college 
paper. Its children now number one hundred and fifty. 
Their times of calling on tbeir patrons vary itaxa 
that or the older monthly magazine to that of the new 
daily at Harvard,— whose editors Imitate Junius In hav- 
ing nominia un)6ra,— or the semi-occasional xheet, called 
a daily, because It in liable to come out any day. 

The eastern paperB, being older, have more expe- 
rience, more competition, and more money than thel) 
western contemporaries, and In consequence of these 
three powerful auxiliaries they Ituve developed raoK 
peculiarities, more orlginallly and higher eicellence. ' 
These characteristics vary oftentimes, as the personnel . 
of the editorial Bfaffa changes; but for this year the 
unprejudiced reviewer of eastern college Journals will 
agree with us in saying tliat the Argo, at WilllaDis, Is 
distinguished by being sprightly, sensible, and, perliaps, 
the best edited ; that the latter paper and the Colum- 
biana excel the others In poetry; that the two periodi- 
cals at Columbia bear off the typographical palm ; that 
the Lehigh Burr is the most precocious, and that the 
Harvard Lampoon and the Columbia Spectatorshow the 
most enterprise, In being illustrated. Now this same 
Lampoon Is the most unique of tbeui all. Almost iU 
sole attention Is devoted to the obtaining of comical de- 
slgUB and frothy articles. Like Fuck it Is jolly and 
funny, but Improving neither to Ita readers nor to Its 
editors. A good feature of some of our Atlantic-ward 
frlende la the election of their successors from their 

best contributors by each outgoing board, afler which 
the money made during the year Is divided up. From 
the first form of college joumallHm have eprtmg two 
Important branches. At female colleges the ladles have 
not wished to be behind their brothem, so In Vaasar, 
Laaell, Hellmouth, and Howard college papers have 
been established and made proapemus. The other otF- 
shoot Is the curious class of fraternity Jouriiale. The 
first one was published nine years ago by a prominent 
college society, and It now has some ten associates. 

The reason for the being of college piqiere and the 
good they accomplish are one. By them many abusee 
are briiught to notice and correcled, and many glorious 
reforms flnit find voice on their printed pages. They 
give a good means of communication between the col' 
lege authorities and the students, as well as furnish 
the news and items of Interest to the professor, the un- 
dergraduate, the alumnus, and, in fact, to all Interested 
In the university. Then, too, they form the best bond 
of sympathy and union between the great seats of learn- 
ing over all the land. Besides all these things they 
affi>rd a grand school of inntruction often found to be of 
great advantage after college days. For they not only 
leach a way to rapid and eiu>ycompOBition, but they also 
give a training in the management of affiiirB. For all 
this let's drink a toast to college papers and to the boys 
who wield the pen. 

UNDER the baleful Influence of the unuenat stars 
wh.lcb blazed upon us this eventful past year, the 
names of three distinguished lovers of our Univerelty 
have been transferred from the catalogues of the living 
to that solitary one which tells of sorrow and tears. 
Ex-Presldents H. P. Tappan and E. O. Haven and ex- 
Regent Bishop are the lamented. There was a geulus 
in each which draws from us admiration and respect, 
yet each had a talent as widely dl&ferent from that of 
the others as is that of a great discoverer, a keen- 
sighted colonizer, and an able philosopher. Our first 
President, Dr. Tappan, first discerned the Immense 
possibilities lying before the liltle school over which he 
was called upon to preside, and be explored the future 
BO well that to-day in our lines of policy his landmarks 
are conspicuous. His successor. Dr. Haven, by his up- 
right, blameless character, infused such confidence In 
the hearts of his countrymen that they sent hither their 
money and sons to erect and to crowd our buildingB. 
The Regent loved the University as well as did his co- 
temporaries, and was always'eager to help It by hie 
purse and voice. But now, after doing much good, they 
have ceased from tiielr latiors, and their bodies lie bur- 
ied In widely separated places. May the one resting on 
the Pacific slope be like the oue sleeping by the waters 
of the Detroit river, and him who lies upou the hllt-slde 
in Switzerland, in enjoying that peace demanded by 
such useful lives.

Students have been a good deal concerned over anexpectedJy 
high bills (br board at Memorial Hall. Also by the gaily of dam- 
aels wbo objected to any Interference with their right to visit the 
gallery of this noted hall and entertain themselves with the Hpec- 
tttCle of Harvard at the tea-table. Hereafter ladleK will not enter 
tbe gallery In tbe evening unless accumpnn led by a student vhuae 
name hna been recorded and who has received a ticket to admit 
them. Besides these trials, the University baa discovered that the 
iDslgniacant Bttenl.lona of some of the Janitors are rewarded by 
yearly Inconiea of about two thousand dollars apiece. 

Tbe ootlege was greeted on the Brit at the year by a new-born 
periodical. It la referred to by uur chief In acurrent editorial as 
"a new dally." and Is the Harvard Herald, a larger and, in aome 
reipecta, a mure attractive publication than the Echo. It Is almost 
too young to be fully matured, but all who are ourlous can exanf- 
Ine It in tbe Reading Room. 

Neither the Eobo nor the Herald are yet equal to the Yale 
News, In any way. Indeed, there arc ubuut aa muuy points of re- 
aemblance as there are of dllTerence betweeu the publications of 
Yale and Harvard. Tbe fealures of each nolvejilly cunsplcuoualy

upon subjects that will be entertaining U> all olasseiof people. 

It la probable that moat exchange editors will agree with the 
following from the Echo :

with the firat number of a literary magazine. Those desiring In- 
formation about Civil Sarvloe Reform or the " Assasalnallon of 
tbeCiar," wouldgo to Ihe reviews where they could And articles 
by men especially fitted to write upon the subject. If the num- 
ber of masaalnea and revlewa wa* «o small that one could read

On Friday evening, tbe 27th, Prof, Hennequiu ad- 
dressed a fair sized audience, at tlie Unlvertiity, on the 
Siege of Paris. Tlie address waa given for tlie l^eneOl 
of the Students' Christian Association, Prof, Hennei)uln 
kindly donatlug his services,. The Professor opened hia 
lecture wltli asliort apology for addresaingan Anierlcau 
audience In their language, an spolngj tbat wna entirely 
uncalled for, as Professor Hennequiu uses remarkably 
good English. Hia chief fault Is a hesitancy In his 
clioice of wurUe, a fault that many of our American 
speakers possess to a greater degree than Professor 
Hennequin. Professor Heunequln laid theentire blame 
of the war to Napoleon, whose ambition was to place 
France in her old position of eminence and power. He 
showed that Napoleon was entirely unfit to command 
an army by a review of the discipline and manage- 
ment of the French army. He referred to tiambetta as 
his ideal statesman, but made no attempt to uphold lils 
late conduct and explain his failure. The rest of his 
A Idress was taken up with a description of the siege, the 
articles of food that were used by the Paiislana, and tlie 
various devlcee resorted to in order to obtain news from 
the rest of the world. Although in many places Prof. 
Hennequin might have greatly Improved his lecture, 
yet, on the whole, it was entertaining and pleasing. 

Since our last Issue Dr. Henry C. Adama has fin- 
ished his labors In this institution and left us. We are 
very much afraid that he has not taken away with him 
a ver}- good Impression of this Institution. We are al- 
most sure he has not left a very good one t>ehiud him. 
While he was a most genial and interesting gentleman 
outside the class-room, we very much doubt his popu- 
larity as an instructor. Socially he was certainly a suc- 

cess. Uniting keen observation with good conversa- 
tional powers, he was always a pleasant and interesting 
companion. In his capacity as an Instructor, however, 
he was certainly not very popular. We think this quite 
as much the fault of the subject he taughtasof the man. 
Elementary Political Economy Is not a subject to arouse 
much enthusiasm. There is nothing In the Law of 
Value or the Doctrine of Rent to attract the student. A 
course In Elementary Political E^nomy given In the 
spring semester Is sure tobeafallure, unless the instruc- 
tor possesses some happy faculty to make It interesting. 
Such a faculty Dr. Adams does not possess. Hia man- 
ner of delivery was t>ad, and an uncertain'^ of state- 
ment Impressed the hearer with the Idea that the lec- 
turer did not exactly understand what he was talking 
about. Wedo not mean to Imply by that that we think 
Dr. Adams did not understand his subject. On the con- 
trary, we believe him to be thorou^thly conversant with 
the whole range of Political Economy. No one can lis- 
ten to his advanced course without being Impressed with 
this belief. He has evidently made himself the master 
of bis subject. His fault is an Insufficient command of 
language. He Is compelled to beat around the bush so 
long and correct himself so often that the student loses 
all Interest in what is being said. In his advanced 

irses he was more successful. Dealing with questions 
of living Interest, questions which are before the Amerl- 
people for solution to-day, and not with dry, atMtract 
theories, he sueceeded in Dot only Interesting but also 
instructing his students. In short, the pleasure in tak- 
ing this course atoned in a great measure for what we 
aufi*ered last spring. Those who listened to his lectured 

Transportation and other economic problems will al- 
ways feel that they received much benefit from Dr. 
Adams instruction. In spite of these many faults that 
we find with Dr. Adams as an lusLructor, It is with feel- 
ings of regret that we see him leave us. There is a lack 
in our present corps of professors, of young, energetic 
and studious men, and this need Dr. Adams could help 
to abolish. We have already seen professors win their 
reputation within the walla of our Alma Mater, and we 
feel confident that Dr. Adams could do tbe same. His

fuuits are only Buch as a few more yeara practice will 
correct, and tbeD will follow renown equal totliulof the 
two profeeson that have left our University to complete 
their career; only iu the latter cases our University hua 
reaped the reward that in the former CHse will help to 
fill the annals of an Eastern College. 

The announcement for th« second seniesler Is out, 
and everywhere is heard the usual queellnn, " What are 
you going to take next semester?" In nome cases a 
direct KDHwer is made, but usually the student com- 
plains of some dlfBculty that he has in maldiig his elec- 
tion. This trouble occurs for the most part with upper 
classmen, who, having passed their reiiulred studies, 
are devoting their time to the sciences, literature, and 
history. In loolclng over this announcement we notice 
that all work In the chemical laboratory must be done 
in the afternoon; that two coursea iu astronomy are 
fixed for the afternoon, while three are uut yet settled ; 
that zoology comes in the morniug, and botany In the 
afternoon ; that all the courfes In English literature are 
in the afternoon, and that with one exception all the 
history comes during the same part of the day. Thus 
we see that in these three branches the majority of tlie 
couraes are ofiered in the afternoon. In view of this 
state of affiiirs it is not surprtHing tiiat many studentfl 
find contlicts and obstacles in the Htudiea that their de- 
siree would lead them to elect, but necessity makes 
them abandon. Again, there are many co;irses olTered 
in history and literature that the pharmacy atudenbi 
would be glad to lalie if they did not interfere with 
their laboratory work. Does It not seem as if some 
change was necessary so as to do away witli these diU- 
cultles? or course we are well aware that there Is an- 
other side to this question, and we presume that the 
Faculty have done their t>esl to suit and please oil ; still 
it does not seem to be asking too much to request them 
to consider tills matter, and if possible to at lea^t offer 
some history in the morning. There are many other 
facts that could be brought up In support of this com- 
plaint, such as surveying coming at the same time as 
the above courses, but as we only desire to call attention 
to this matter, It is needless to mention them. 

Through the kindness of the wife of the late J. W. 
McKenzie, law class of '08, we have received a paper an- 
nouncing ills recent death at his home in Iowa. From 
this paper and other sources we have gathered the inter- 
esting story of his life. As he was one of the heroes of 
the war and afterwards agraduate of our University that 
story hot) a glowing interest for us. In short it is this. 
After the fall of Atlanta and before Sherman's march to 
the sea, that General was engaged in operations in 
Northern Georgia. As a part of these a force under Gen. 
Corse was guarding Allatoona post. He had suddenly 
been surrounded by a i>and of rel>eU in numlver three 

times larger than hisowu. They were not long in mak- 
ing the attack, and Gen. Sherman, wlio witnessed the 
light from the summit of a ntounUin not far dlsUnt, 
fearing greatly for the welfare of his soldiers, sent rein- 
forcements to their aasUtance. As the engagement was 
very severe none of the men of the algiial corps dared 
to expose themselves to the bullets in order to signal to 
the beleaguered garrison that help was coming. Finally 
a slight young soldier seized the flags, mounled the 
breast-worka and waved the message from Sherman to 
Corse : " Hold the Fort for I am Coming." This brave 
deed was that of young McKenzie, and those words form 
the text for one of our most inspiring hymns. After the 
war he entere*! the law department here and was grad- 
uated in '68. He has since, lived in Hampton, Iowa, 
where he has practiced his profession and served as a 
district judge. His health had not always been of the 
strongest and on thelothof January, after a brave, mod- 
est and upright life, he died. Although, bya singleact 
of gallantry he had wonanational fame and had helped 
BO much tosave tiie battle nt Allatoona, he seldom spoke 
of his war experiences, and never would write nor allow 
others to write an account of ills part in the victory. 
Thus he has shown himself doubly heroic, first by the 
act itself then by his difiidbnt and unassuming conduct 
In regard to it. All honor to the heroes of the war.

During the past year The Chronicle has, upon 
several occasions called attention to some cliangee or Im- 
provements in regard to the library, which, if carried 
out, would be most pleasing and acceptable to the stu- 
dents ; and now, when we are so Hoon to enjoy the bene- 
flta of a new library, it seems especially fitting to recall 
these suggestions. If these cannot be made at once. It 
surely Is not asking too much to request that they at 
least be conwldered and if possible, be adopted upon mov- 
ing Into the new building. We refer CBpeclally to the 
hours during which the library Is open to the students. 
The Faculty by commencing recltutlons at 8]- A. u., vir- 
tually ^ays that the students' day should begin at that 
hour, yet the Library Is not opened until 9 a. m., so Ibat 
many are forced to wait till then before starting their 
day's work. But worse than this is the hour for closing 
Id the afternoon. If the library must be closed at some- 
time during the day, which we doubt, It surely is not 
necessary to close it for two hours. We might at least 
have the use of the library from 5 to 6, an hour that 
could so conveniently be passed there. How often we 
come at 5 o'clock from recitations with no desire to re- 
turn at once to studying, and aa the library is not open 
we are compelled to loiter away an hour. If only the 
library were open during this hour, how pleasantly and 
and profitably It might have been passed! Again take the 
student spending his afternoon in the library working 

The Chronicle. 


Up some queHtlon. At 5 o'clock beta quietly ushered 
out, and aa he has uot the necessary books at his room 
with which to continue, he loses Just one hour or work. 
And 9) o'clock also seems to be, for tiiesame reason, too 
earij to close for the ni)(ht. Surely these houra might 
be lengthened without giving the assistunta in thi 
library much more work, while the students would re 
ceive great beneflte from the aditional hours. Again w< 
are strongly In favor ofopeiiing the library on Sundays 
and of not closing It on evenings when tliero are enter- 
tainments at University Hall. The former is a step that 
has been taken by someoftiie easteni colleges, and It 
will sooner or later, be adapted here. Then in regard to 
books, we are constantly feeling the need of more orig- 
inal unthorities on ditTerent subjects. For Instance there 
are not in the library more tliau halfadoseii volumes 
on the iilstory of Ireland, and only a part of Hanwrd' 
Pariiamentury Debates. But this need Is especially felt 
In pursuing the seminary courses. Now thesenilnarlee 
are one of the many tilings in our Unlveratty of which 
we are so proud. In tulkiiig to our friends about tlie 
good qualities of our University we never fall to men- 
tion these couraes, and are generally asked what their 
character is. To this we immediately answer original 
work. Now this ja not strictly true. Let us Illustrate 
by the historical seminary. For general reference we 
have Hiidreth, Bancroft, and others, but we have not 
the sources from which they have drawn their informa- 
tion ; we cannot Judge of the correctness of thelropln- 
ions, nor can we form any of our own ; we must simply 
adopt the opinion of some autliorwhom we read. This 
certainly cannot be called original work. Thus In order 
to maintain the reputation of these courses, it Is neces- 
sary to furnish us with these original autiiorltles. Yet 
while we see all other libraries filling their shelves with 
books of this description, we fall to notice any such 
movementontiiepartofourown. Even at the preseJit 
time there are some valuable and scarce historical books 
tieiogsold, and all libraries, except our own, are striving 
to obtain them. Yet in a few short years when these 
books have become very rare, we will be uuable to ob- 
tain copies of them. It Is now or never. 

The usual bl-weekiy lecture before the Civil Service 
Reform Association was delivered In the law lecture 
room, on Saturday evening, by Hon. Cliarles Kent, to a 
large and appreciative audience. Although civil service 
reform Is an old and well-worn theme, the increasing 
corruption in our political parties may well stand as our 
excuse for bringing it again to the notice of our readers. 
In a Cttuee so worthy of their attention and earnest 
endeavors, our ablest men are warmly solicited to ad- 
dress the organization. Mr. Kent, In his lecture on the 
evils of the civil service In this country, includes elected 
officers as well as those appointed. To a great exteut, 
the same dlffloultiea are experienced In t>oth oiasaea— 

in both the duration of office Is too short. The func- 
tions of a governmental office are as difficult to perform 
as those of a private business, and consequently there 
ought to be as efficient men employed in one as in the 
other; but no quall&ed man will enter the present civil 
service witliout some security for bis continuance 
therein. The objection that they will soon control the 
government does not apply to the purely civil offices, 
but only to those having political power, as the beads 
of each department. Politicians should not have under 
tiieir control the whole line of appointments. As a 
result of such extensive appointing power, the carrying 
out of the motto, " To the victors belong the spoils," 
engendered the most bitter hatred between tiie two 
present political parties ; and statesmen, nay, call them 
rather selAsh partlslans, instead of devoting themseivea 
to the nation's Interest, study rather through political 
Intrigue, and by lavishing an expenditure of money 
to retain offices, the distribution of the patronage of 
which enables them to aggrandize at once themselves, 
their personal friends, and tiieir political aldera and 
abettors; while to those very offices a confiding pub- 
lic has elected those very officials to perform with Integ- 
rity and to the beat of their ability the public service 
connected therewith. The next great evil Is the abuse 
of the caucus system. The skilled politician elects his 
own chairman, nominates his man, and secures what ia 
ever his highest end and aim, self-aggrandisement and 
an undying reputation as a master of wire pullera. Yet 
all this they do In the uame of an " honest ballot and 
fsAr count." Is It nut time for this nation to arise in her 
might and elect to fill her offices her honorable, not her 
dishonorable men, men who will be more than willing 
to discharge their duties with an eye to the public wel- 
fare, and who will feel more than rewarded by legiti- 
mate salary. Joined to the proud feeling of aatisfacCion 
that (In regard to its civil service, at leaatj they have 
raised their country from Its preuent deplorable wtate ot 
Inefficiency and corruption to a state of efficiency and

The "University" is dead! We do not refer by 
this to our college, but to the official organ of the pro- 
fessional schools, our contemporary. It has had but a 
short life. It made Its first appearance a year ago last 
fall and died, or ratiier quietly passed out of existence, 
shortly before the holidays. The reason of Its demise 
may t>e summed up In the few words, financial embar- 
rassments. Last spring they made or wished to make 
a proposition to The Chronicle for the consolidation 
of the fwo papers ; hut this proposition was never se- 
rlou-ly entertained. Weextendoursympatiiy to theedl- 
tore and hope that they will revive their paper. There 
is surely room for two papers in this college, aud If the 
editors will woric in soliciting aubaoriptions and ads.

Any ODe wbo has not read Longrellow'a poem "Nu- 
remberg" cnnaot jierbaps fully appreciate my feelings 
while wandering through that wonderful old city. I 
ceased to wonder that the scenes aud associations had 
arouaed the genius of the poet, and only marveled that 
anybody could witness tlioee scenes, be aware of those 
assocUtlona, and not feel likewise inspired. The spirit 
of Hans Sachs seems still to pervade the place, and 
surely the "fountains wrought with richest sculpture, 
standing In the common mart," would never have been 
erected had Albrecht Durer never lived and labored 
there. The whole place seems peculiarly poetic, and 
the grand old castle or " bei% " is by no means the least 
object of interest. 

Filled with the thoughts and feelings inspired by 
the place, I climbed the steep way leading to tht castle, 
and, after considerable delay, was admitted by a bright- 
looking, comely German girl, who seemed by no means 
out of place in her surroundings, and who, t fancied, 
was not insensible to tbem. O, when before were ap* 
pearanoee so deceptive 1 

" In the court-yard of the castle. 
Bound wltb many an Iron bund, 
Stands tbo mighty linden, planted 
By Queen Cunlguiida's hand," 
sings the poet, and that great tree, over eight hundred 

-s old, is the first object which attracts a stranger'n 
attention on entering the court-yard. I approached It 
with deepest admiration, almost reverence, only to have 
my poetic feelings rudely shocked by being informed 
that the linden came after, not before, the castle. How 
this Information was conveyed Is still a mystery to me, 
but conveyed it was, and that In the wonderfully em- 
phatic manner peculiar, I firmly believe, to that one 
person. Not even among petty Oermao oBScials or t>e- 
diamonded American hotel clerks have I encountered 
such Impudence, such overpowering contempt for man- 
kind in general, and the traveling public in particular, 
as was display eti by this pretty, innocent-looking Ger- 
man girl. Despite the nationality, I can but think 
that she was a near relative of " the Boy at Mugby's " 
Missus," and before I had parted from her I knew

not know this tlien ; I only bad an unsatisfactory feel- 
ing that something was not exactly as it should be ; and, 
while wonderiug what It was, I meekly followed up the 
steps and Into tbe building. Ah! Here I am at last. 
My feelings revive, and I gaze around in awe at the rich 
tapestry, the magnificent carving, the high, noble arches 
of the time-honored apartment. Tlie spirit of Hans 
Sachs again seems to pervade everything, and I almost 
fancy I can hear the stately tread of the priestly proces- 
sion as it enters this, the ancient place of worship, to 
chant praises to the Lord of battles for the fhrtunate 
Issue of some hard-fought field. My eyes involuntarily 
turn to the gallery, and I am half disappointed at not 
finding It filled with rows of steel-clad figures. But all 
thlsonly for a moment. QradusUy a few disenchanting 
words, or rather words that seemed to carry a most dis- 
enchanting effect that was not of themselves, began to 
take poHsessiou of my whole mind. " Chapel. Oldest 
part th' Castle." That was all. I had not heard the 
words spoken, but somehow they seemed to pervade the 
^r, to force themselves upon me as does the conscious- 
ness of hunger. The place t>egan rapidly to become a 
mere ordinary pile of stone. I made an efllbrt to re- 
cover my enthusiasm. " Can you tell me," I Inquired, 
" the age of this tapestry ? " I turned as I spoke, only 
to find myself entirely alone; but frona the adjoining 
apartment came the apparently innocent, perhaps even 
inspiring, reply : " Biz hundred years." It was not the 
words of the reply, it was not the to me unmusical 
South-Qerman dialect In which they were spoken, nor 
yet did it seem to be th6 peculiarly rapid, sn^plsb de- 
livery, that produced the effect upon me. It was the 
same disenchanting force that had conveyed the Infor- 
mation respecting the linden to me, and made the Inno- 
cent words, " Chapel— oldest part tb' Castle," so malig- 
nant; It was the same overwhelming contempt that 
" the Boy at Mugby " so admired. 

I gave up, and followed more meekly than at first. 
For a time I was overawed, and made no further at- 
tempt ; the way in which she pronounced the name of 
each succeeding apartment dispersed ail thoughts of 
asking for more Information, or of Indulging In my for- 
mer feelings. Qraduaiiy, however, I began to recover, 
and at last ventured timidly: "Friiuleln, could you, 
without degrading the station in which your superior 
attainments and dignity and your great personal worth 
have placed you, inform a benighted wanderer from a 
foreign shore the age and— If not asking too much— 
Bome part of the history of that particular piece of 
earthenware?" "Six hundred years." So came the 
answer, and with it fled the last spark of the spirit I 
had fondly t>elieved must ever linger alwut the plaoe, 

O, Immortal Longfellow! How must the whole 
world rejoice that thou didst not encounter this being. 

Even thy Inspiration must have faded away before her. 
If the shades of the " Cobbler Poet " himself, as they 
wander through the halls forbidden to their mortal 
habiliment should chance to enoounter her, they must 
immediately retreat to their more humble but more 
congenial haunts. 

My poetic tilings were gone, but when my con- 
ductress led the way through a window to a little bal- 
cony, I could not be entirely insensible to the magnifi- 
cent scene that lay before me. The broad green plain 
at my feet, swept by the winding river, and dotted here 
and there with quaint, red-roofed villages, each clus- 
tered about Its church-spire ; in the distance the blue, 
hazy moantalns, so beautiful in themselves, and yet 
seeming to shut out a more beautiful expanse beyond ; 
and all nature clothed with the returning beauties of 
spring, made a picture not easily erased from my mem- 
ory. But, eh! What's that? Battle? Oustavus Adol- 
phus? Wallenstein? Oh, of course. What would my 
worthy professor of history think, to know it had not 
been the first thought that crossed my mind. That was 
In, how— let's see, in sixteen hundred and— and— " Six- 
teen hundred i!Afr^-two," I had not looked on the field 
where Sweden's great king had been Tepulsed with any 
such emotions aa had filled my breast before euoounter- 
Ing this maiden ; her presence had entirely banished 
them. My sensations bad l>eeu rather those of the or- 
dinary, profesalonai slght-seer, and my feelings had In 
consequence b^un to resume theirnormal, sight-seeing 
condition; but the peculiar emphasis of that " Beohs- 
zehn-hundertsioei und dreisig" banished me again to 
the depths of despair. 

Of the remainder of the castle I have a very oon- 
fUsed and indistinct impression. I was hurried through 
room after room, built at different times, by different 
people, but every corner having Its history ; through the 
long banquet-hall, which under other circumstanoes my 
imagination mlglit Immediately have filled with the 
gay revelers now long fo^^tten ; througfc the el^ptnt 
sleeping apartments with their furniture dating any 
where, and as far as I could gather from the informa- 
tiou volunteered by my slightly relenting guide, almost 
everywhere from the thirteenth to the nineteenth cen- 
tury. Through all this and perhaps more was I hurried 
in abject thraldom. My spirits were completely sub- 
dued till I reached the open air, when suddenly I felt 
Infused with new vigor, and there, ah ! there I achieved 
a proud triumph. I conquered where Mark Twain 
himself had owned to defeat, and at the moment I felt 
fully repaid for all I had suffered at her hand. 

You are wondering how I knew the great humorist 
bad encountered this same m^den ? I did not know It 
when I came Trom the castle into the open air, and only 
know it now from a conviction, based on my Mth In 
human nature and my knowledge of ordinary afiUrs, 
that two such beings, so like In all respects, and with

iucli a genius for impoelng on their fellow- crest uree in 
the faiise vay, could not exifl at llie name time. As 
was leaving Ihe c^iurt-jard I Inquired, more from wai 
toniiegg than from any Idea of getting a direct anewei 

"Howiiiucli?" iWievielt) 

" What jou please" (A'ach Beliebe). 

That Is the Invariable answer. Kndody erer gnt 
frotn a guide a dlflVreiit one to that question. An ordi- 
nary ^ulde, liunever, will change the formula on a rep- 
etition of the queution, and a few days before I had hap- 
pened upnd aiiotlierqu«Ktion to wbicli every guide had 
fluccunibed without a struggle. The question, though 
, simple and apparently an obvious one, seemed to su 
prise an answer from them before they were theniselv 
aware of it. It was merely : 

"How much dnyou usually get?" 

This maiden, however, was proof against any such 
clumsy contrivance, and 

"Very diflerently paid," wa* her only respoDse. 

" Huw much did you say ?" 

" Nach Beliebe." 

Then Ihe thought struck nie. No, Yes. No, It 
can't— It mv»t be, II can be no other than Murk Twain's 
Baden-Baden girl. That look, that lou/e etiaemble, that 
really niagnlHcent contempt for everytblng and every- 
body, can twlong to nn one else. Then I remember how 
she and the witty American had held an animated 
vvrsatlon for Hfteen minutes consisting of nothing but 
" Wie viel," " Nach Beliebe," and my heart sank with- 
in me. Here I was face to face with her; what should 
I do? Must I Hunender withoutan effort? Never. A^ 
the silence waa heamiing painful, I slarled at the be- 
ginning again, merely to give myself a little time for 

" Wleviel?" 

" Nach Beliebe." 

" Aber wie viel beknmmeti 8ie gewShnlich?" 

'■ 6ehr vernchieden bezahll." 

This I kept up, alternating the two questions and 
antwcis, till 1 had Lad time to form my plan of action. 

'■ WIe viel ?" 

" Nach Beliebe." 

" Ja, aber gewOlinllch." 

" Sehr verschleden bezalilt." 

Mark had attempted to shame her by of!tring a 
dozen llmtB the Ufual amount, and then asking sarcast- 
ically if it would be enough. Mark had failed. I re- 
solved to try the opposite course. I remembered that, 
aci'iiidlng lo Ihe gulde-bnok, her usual perquisite was 
about Iwenti'flve cents. I oflered her ttve and started 
to go. Not a feature changed, not a word escaped her. 
I was departing, routed foot and hurse. I turned and 
made one last despairing effort. 

"la that enough?" 

Then my triumph came. She was human after all. 
Ku change In expression, no gesture Indicated my tri- 

umph, but the confession was wrung from her in words. 
She at last did what every German guide has profes- 
nional pride in not doing, and what it was her chief 
glory and pride never under any clrcunit-tances to have 
done. Slie put a value on her own services. In a very 
vague and un sat is factory way no doubt, but still sb« did 
acknowledge that, to some extent at least, human pas- 
sions controled her. She said : 

" UmtaUy get more." 

This may seem to you a confession so slight as to be 
void of all value whatsoever. Very difTereiit were my 
feelings. A hymn of victory and thanksgiving Tom to 
my lips. Then the thought arose, shall I fbllow up my 
conquest? No, the "u>ie vte/" might set the ball rolling 
again, and then my victory would be turned Into defeat. 
No. better be content with a moderate triumph. I » Im- 
ply gave her the Qemian equivalent for a dollar and 

Header, if you ever go to Nuremberg don't neglect 
to read Ijongfetlow's poem first, and guided by the 
thoughts inspired by the poem and by the wonderoua 
works of art, the magnlflcent churchee, the quaint old 
bul dings, the narrow streets, the historic associations, 
that everywhere crowd around, admire the paintings 
and sculpture in the churches and market places, wan- 
der through the old Rath-house, drink a bottle of wine 
ill Hans Sachs's home, forget neither his monument nor 
that of Drilrer's, yes, and even survey the castle from a 
dintaiice; but till you have done these and a thousand 
other things, in fact, till you are tired of even such 
siglit-seelng and ready to come down again to the pro- 
saic world don't, I beg of you don't, expose yourself to 
be tortured by the " Maid of the Castle," as I have ever 
since called her. 


O, Lord, how long? I have sought for work ev- 
erywhere, but can And nothing to do to earn a crust for 
my famtiihlng children. As a child I was taught that 
Thou, O Lord, wouldst reward a virtuous life, and that 
thy people would tend their aid and countenance to an 
upright man. Help me to continue In that faith! But 
how can I, when my former employer, a chief pillar In 
Thy church, discharged me for not working on Sunday, 
and in his spleen refused me testimonials of my work- 

iship, so that none other should hire me? How 
long must I wait? O, Lord, how long? 

My two children were burled to-day. They fam- 
ished. My poor wife Is all but dead with grief and palu. 
It tries my faith In a Supreme Justice to see the wicked 
floutiah, while an honest man and his family starve. 

The Chronicle. 


The parable of the lost slieep always seemed to me a 
wouderftil instance of divine love and care; but It Is not 
right— at least as tiie world practices Its precepts. The 
good people nialte all Imaglimblefussover the reclaimed 
sheep, while tlie ninety and nine tliat stayed In the fold 
are unnoticed, unguarded, and unfed. ' There U more 
Joy lu heaven over one slnuer that Is saved than over 
the nineiy and nine iliat need no repentance.' This is 
not just: that ucontinuously virtuous life should seem 
less In the sight of heaven than the death-bed repent- 
ance of the black-sheep, scared back Into Che fold by the 
lurid flames of an eternal hell. It Is not fair for the 
uinety-niue to take back seats, while the man who de- 
clares that If he had any longer to live be would lead a 
virtuous life, but who has given no good deed as a war- 
rant or as an ofT-set to any of his wickedness, Is trotted 
out on the stage as a hero. It fa merely a reward for 
being had. 

Still I can get no work. 

Jaly 8. IBTS. 

To-day I beard a reformed drunkard deiivera stir- 
ring lecture on tempemnce. It seemed to me, however, 
that he told more about the pleasures be had expe- 
rienced in the bowl, than taegave reasons for abstaining 
therefrom. The ladles of the Society make a great deal 
of fuss over him. Thev take him into their families 
—because he is in the good work. If be had continued 
in bis natuml grade of society, that of a drayman. In all 
probabilities he could never have gained admittance in- 
to their houses- except to carry some baggage in, but 
never on a footing of social equality. It seems that the 
passage Into the upper circles is through the slime of 
the gutter. After the temperance orator bad taken his 
seat, a preacher arose and read the parable of the labor- 
ers In the vineyard. He likened their reclaimed brother 
to the laborer who went into the field at the eleventh 
hour and who received equal reward with those who 
bore their burden in the heat of the day. This parable 
and theoneof the lost sheep may account for the droves 
of reformed drunkards, and reformed everything, that 
infest the land, and make exceedingly weary the ears of 
the people. 

UusuocesHful yet in getting work. I am in despair. 
Don't know what is to become of my poor wife and 
wretched me.

The men at the shop are Jolly good fellows. I took 
a few glasses of wine with them to-day. But what hurt

To-day my wife urged rae to drink uo more, and I 
struck her. She has no business to interfere with my 
doings. But I am sorry I hit her. Indeed I am.

Well, here I am in Jail. My wife died of neglect 
and Ill-treatment. My employer discharged me for 
drunkenncHH. He! that taught me to forget my Ood 
in desecrating His holy day, and to deaden in the cup 
my coiiHCietice and my duty to my wife. That man dis- 
charged me, »ud I have been going to the dogs ever 
since. Beg th^ money to get liquor, feed at a free lunch 
counter, and sleep in the Jail. That's rich enough for a 
king. Drunk last night, drunk the night before, going 
to get drunk to-morrow night.

There are too many snakes in this latitude to agree 
with my constitution. T think I will take an overland 
trip for my health, stopping at all the watering places 
and other points of interest.

Last nIgliL I strolled Into a temperance meeting. A 
troop of ladles. Judging by my appearance, thought me 
a lit object to exercise their eloquence upon. Finally I 
had to sign the pledge to get rid of them. A committee 
took uie in charge, fed and clothed me, and to-morrow 
lam to confess my sins to the multitude that assembles 
at their meetings. 

Sept. 3, 1880. 

The audience last night was very enthusiastic 
They seemed especially struck with my description of 
the " delicious triangles." After the meeting, the com- 
mittee on finances made me an offer of a larger salary 
for going alHtut delivering lectures than I could get at 
my old employment. And a noted publisher oflTered 

me per page to write " The Confessions of a Jlm- 

jamer." I accepted both. 

Feb. 4, 188!. 

I now have a splendid Income as a temperance lect- 
urer, I did not acqulrethlseminence except by numer- 
ous taXlu. I found that unless I fell from grace occa- 
sionally, the crowd tired of my confessions— and reason* 
ably, for they became stale. Mow I t&W at regular 
Intervals. If the stray sheep wants to keep up being 
petted and fed, as soon as the dear people begin to show 
lack of interest, he must stray ofT again. I believe I 
understand the true inwardness of the sheop parable. 

Beading over my diary of several years ago, I am 
surprised at the Ideas I then held concerning virtue. I 
am a hypocrite now, I know. But then I comprehend 
the true meaning of the vineyard parable also, and one 
of these days will repeat in earnest and reoeive as great 
reward as If I had never deserted the principles I held 
four years ago. -j- - - - ,--

RECENT c-hangcBiD college cuslotns show a larger 
view of education and a continuous advancement 
In liberality. Among the modern features la tliat of 
the more prominent Inittructora being Invited to otber 
Unlverpltlea than their own to give a eerlea of lectures. 
Indeed there U one of tbe leading scliooU of inxtructlon 
in tile east wliloli depends largely upon such outside aid. 
Thus, by Judicious selections of eminent teachers, a cur- 
riculum may be enlarged, Improved and invigorated. 
New llties of thought are followed ; old ones are made 
more attractive, and a new spirit Is Imparted both to 
scholar and professor. The etudent is interested by the 
change, and stimulated by respect for the new man, who 
is usually greater away from home than at his own col- 
lie. The lecturer, too, is animated, and consequently 
makes a stn>nger effort to please ami to instruct. One 
renowned college east of us has been «o enthusiastic In 
the move of iibuinlng men from a distance that it re- 
cently secured tbe services of a noted English historian 
for a course of lectures. However, after all the necessary 
outlay, disappointment was caused by tbe non-euccess 
of the enterprise. In the future the faculty will proba- 
bly oontlne Itself to home talent. With us the custom 
has not as yet bee>i adopted, yet we feel pride In having 
several of our professors desired by other colleges, that 
is, of course, only for a short time. 


"VHE work for next semester has Just been laid before 
us in shape of tlie AnnouncemenL A comparison 
of It with that of last year shows the usual number of 
changes, several of which are improvements, while 
otherM canuot be tims classed. In Greek there are eight 
courses instead of six as fonuerly ; Latin baa Cicero's 

Tusculan Disputations added ; Mathematica this semes- 
ter had three new courses In addition to those of last 
year, and next semester there will t>e four new ones; 
Qerman is much strengthened by gaining the study of 
thns^ masterpieces, the Nltieiungenlied and Herder's 
Ideen zur Ge«chiohte; Italian will supplant the Span- 
ish ; History Is Improved by tbe study of the Constitu- 
tion of the U. S. and the Government of England; 
Philosophy is reinforced by three new courses, the Phi- 
losophy of Religion, t:thics, and a Philosophical Semi- 
nary; Cheniitttry has thirteen courses, a gain of two; 
In Botany there are two more than before, and In Pby- 
siotngy one; Engineering is enlarged by four courses 
having a mechanical bearing ; Metallurgy ia introduced, 
and more is olfereil In Music. 

Thus a great gain has been made In the departments 
of Philosophy, Mathematics and Meclianloal Engineer- 
ing. However, to pay for tlie gain we have suflWed a 
loss. Up to this year one of the most improving courses 
has been the lectures on Art, but now we look in vain 
for the notice of their delivery. Much disappointment 
is caused those who did not take them lost year, 
but were looking forward with pleasure to them for this 
last half year. The department is tliat of Literature, 
Science, and the Arts. At present we laok the only 
murse devoted especially to Art. What shall we now 
call ourselves? Another course from which we bad 
been expecting much profit was that of ejctemporaneous 
speaking, wliich gave drill in argument and strength- 
ened the faculty of self-possession while speaking. Aa 
a comparative small number of the upper classmea 
t>eiong to a literary society where such exercise is given, 
and as every graduate is expected to be able to address 
an audience at any time and upon any subject, tbe 
majority of us are now poorly equipped to meet such 
requirements. Yet we confess the two professors are al- 
ready crowded. Tbe courses not only should have beeo 
retained but even added to and made more prominent. 
Certainly If it had been desirable to discontinue them for 
a time, notice should have been given a year ago so that 
we who are to be graduated this year could have taken 
them when they were last given. Tbe Faculty surely 
made a mistake in dropping the two courses and substi- 
tuting others far from t>eing so useful. 

A weak spot also exists In the study of Qermau. 
While we have nine courses in that language, not one 
of them has a place for practice in conversation. Natu- 
rally a longer time la required to learn to speak Qerman 
than French, yet much more attention Is given to tbe 
latter. So now it has come to pass that westudy French 
two years and are able to understand a lecture given 
entirely in that language, whilst after four years of 
German we are happy If we comprehend a sentence. 
By this review we see that our range of study is be- 
coming a broader one, yet there ia many a place atill too 
I narrow.

Professor Stowel I now wears a smiling eouatennnce, because 
he has Just received a one-flftletb objective ordered for the Uni-

of Geneva. N. Y., who Is recognised as the best objective maker 
tn the world. Mr. Spencer Infonns us, Ihrougb Dr. Stowell, that 
' there are but three or four of these oblectlves In this oountry.and 
searceiy one of tbem Is up to tbe required standard. Professor H. 
L. Smith, of Hubert College, one of the best mlcroscoplsla In 
America, says In a letter lo Dr. Stowell. that he examined the 
glass before It left Mr. Spencer's bands, atid declares 11 lo be the 
best objective he has ever eeen, and believes It tu be tbe best Id 
the world. In answer to our Inquiries wa learn thai this glass Is 
believed to be the only oue In the world posaeued by an educa- 
tional Inatltutlon; that the University owns more mlcrosoiipea 
than any other sebiral, and that it la the only Institution having

his Hrgament, where his enthusiasm for tbeeinclency of the Eng- 
lish Oovernment gets the better of bis deferencs for the science of 
political economy, have assumed that their respected proressor 
did not actually expect them lo be convinced by bis suggestion. 
But the college that did not hesitate to pronounce '■ Dr. Free- 
man's lectures a Aillure" p rod nceg a serious refutation of tbe doc- 
trine said to be taught by Proressor Adams, which Is really de- 
llgbtrul. It Is somewhat abridged here. 
"To the BJilori of Ihe Sun : 

"task a few lines' space to answer an argument presented a 
rew days ago before a body of students, and wtaloh I fear to be of 
evil consequences. If left to settle without further thought. 

"The argument was that It Is a great benelll to a country to 
have an aristocracy possessed of Immense wealth, and who spend 
their Ibrlunes In pomp and luxury, thus by their eitravaganoe 
making work Ibr a large number of the people who would else be 
obliged to be Idle. 

"To show what appears to me to be the fallacy In this very 
plausible argument, I will present a hypothetical case; Suppose 
tbat In any community the present ecu ihetlc ciaie should become 
universal and all-absorbing, so tbat the Ihrmer would spend all 
bis time In decorallng his Fence posts with cedar sprigs and fresh 
lilies. The merchant and worklug man or the towns would spend 
Ibelr whole energy In restoonlng the houses and carpeting the 
streets w I th roses. Tbe result would, of course, be that In the 
mldstof their »8thel1a exertions— agriculture, manufactures and 
commerce being atn staud-stlll— they would all starve lo death as 
soon as their surplus from before the time when they became 
aAlcted with tbe testhetic mania, was exhausted. 

"But now. Instead of this, suppose that the community sent a 
few men Into the Held lo provide rur tbe material necessities at 
the whole, while all the rest continued to devote themselves to 
tbelr favorite oooupallon of oon verting the country Into an eea- 
thellc paradise. The result In this cose Is also plain. The Qeld 
bands would have lo work much barder and longer now to snp- 
porl the whole community, on account of tbelr small uumber, 
than before tbe Esthetic oraae. 

" Bnt lo meet the case directly, I Ihink I can show In another 
way that the working people are more benellled If the Income of 
the rich Is not spent In useless ostentation. I^t this extravagance 
or the aristocracy cease. It appears at first glance that the result 
would be a glut or the labor market by tbe dismissal or all those 
who were employed In admlulsterlng to all that luxury. But this 
In reality will not be the case. In estimating a social result we 
must not reason from one factor merely ; we must take all l&ctor* 
In lla composition Into consideration. Certainly those so em-

Of late quite a number of books have appeared, wblcb will 
give USB clearer InslKht Into the history of the latter part of last 
oentnry and tha beginning or the ptesent. Among these we may 
mention the " Memoirs of Madame de R^musal," " Prince Met- 
ternlch," and " Count Miot de Melllo.'* All of these works have 
nearly the same object, vis., that of throwing new light upon 
these eventful times. We are aft aware that unperson can give us 
a better Idea of a period In the world's history than that Individ- 
ual who has participated In thestlrrlng scenes which he describee. 
Of course, he will not look ataquestlon with the same freedom 
from prejudice asa later historian, still the very fkct that be was 
a part of those soenes about which he writes, gives to him special 
prominence. Buch Is the general characteristic of all the books 
mentioned. Of these, the memolrsof CkiuntMlotareby no means 
the least Important. The Count was a diplomat of some reputa- 
tion, who served France with zeal and distinction. He gives us 
all through his work vivid sketches of his own limes. Of course 
hla opinions on ninny snt^ects are fkr from being Impartial, but 
still they are given with such candor and earnest nesa that we can 
not fall to respect Ihem. The author's account of the afltalrs In 
Spain In IfinS-lZ discloses many Imporlanl fHcIs In regard to the 
Peolnsular War. The sketches of the prominent men of bis lime 
are quite Interesting, Bobeaplerre, Napoleon. Louis XVIII, and

ablebook. It does not go Into the deulls descrlblug minutely the 
various sorts of arausemenu, but rather gives us a general Idea nf 
what character they should be. Each subject Is treated In accord- 
ance with its Impurlance, and yet we can scarcely say that any 
amusement Is overlooked. Private theatricals, gardenlug. the 
decorative arts, plcnloa.and dancing, are all given their proper 
place In the work. In considering the latter amusement, the 
author gives a brier but clear account of the "Oermau," a dunce 
much talked of, but about which comparatively little Is known. 
If we were to make any crltlciMn at all upon this book. It would 
be. that In describing many amusements the writer would neoes- 
sarlly limit them (oa higher and wealthier class of persons than 
are geoerally to be found. This we think especially noticeable In 
the chapters upon theatricals and garden parties. Still, raoatof 
the amusements could be so carried out as to fall within the 
means of even the poorest person. For sale by John Moore. Price

required a certain degreeor facility In translating the ancient 
languages, the study of the classics becomes wonderfully fascin- 
ating and attraotlve. But the course of tralnlngln this direction 
Is neceasarlly so meagre In our universities and colleges that stu- 
denls leave the subject with regret and a painfull sense of iDOom- 
pleteness. Of course, a Ibw of the most promloeut aulhors are 
translated in the class-room ; but the great body of classic lllera-

except that which Is m<Ht desired, namely, their works, the style 
of their writings, etc. The book under review can hardly be called

Atuid the prepnratioiis that are being niaJe to receive 
our honored Preeidenl upon Ills return to hix collegiate 
dutieB, we think there should be some expreasliiD of tlie 
appreciation and regard of tlie students for him who Lhh 
been temporarily at the head of the liiatitulloii. Acting- 
President Frieze may well congratulate himself upon 
tlie unprecedented protiperitv, and the general, good 
order and good feeling that have characterized his eigh- 
t«en months of authority. We say that the prosperity 
has been unprecedented. The attendance during this 
year and last has never been equaled In any previous 
years of our hi-tory, and It has entitled the University 
of Michigan to rank as firat of the colleges of America In 
number of students. Progress has also been manifested 
In the numerous Improvements and additions that have 
been made. An apiiropriation for a library building whs 
secured last winter, and already the foundations of the 
structure are laid. A Mechanical Laboratory and addi- 
tional hospital wards have been begun and completed, 
adding greatly to the efficiency of tbosedepartments. 
The school of political science, from which so much good 
is anticipated, thisyearopened its doors for the first time. 
If its success aud influence shall be as great as we fer- 
vently hope and expect, our Acting- President maybe 
proud that during hie control it was given life. The 
additions and changes in the faculty during President 
Angell's absence are too numerous to mention In detail. 
It Is to be sincerely regretted that we lost Prof. Tyfer, 
butweliave great cause for congratulation that Pref. 
Morrislsoncemore in our midst. These eighteen months 
have been characterized by unprecedented good order 
and good feeling. There hiive been none of tliose un- 
seemly altercations that iu former years brought disgrace 
upon the iustltutloo and hard feeling among the stu- 

dents. Cordiality has characterized all the relations be- 
tween professors and students. We can well imagine 
that Dr. Frieze is glad to be tvllevedfrom the burdens of 
his temporary position. It has been one filled with 
onerous and responsible duties, and in which nothing 
but the readiest tact and most unvarying good Judgment 
have brought succesB. The mere outward prosperity of 
the University during thiit period we do not think meas- 
ures the real merit of Dr. Frieze's services. He has won 
the favor and good willof the students by his unvarying 
courtetty and genuine worth as a man. He lias always 
been easy to approach, has never been chary of words of 
encouragement when needed, and kindly favors have 
never been refused when it was in his power to grant. 
Dr. Frieze will always be remembered with klndlj' feel- 
ings by those who have been under him, and we know 
there is not a dissenting voice amid the praises so Justly 
earned by our Acting-President. 

It is some time since the sophomore class announced 
their intention of giving a Latin play, and since that 
time the work of preparing it has steadily gone on, so 
that now It is safe to predict that It will take place. It 
is not merely a school boy notion, but one that receives 
tbebearty support of the Faculty, and especially of Pro- 
fessor Qailey who has taken the matter in hand. The 
enthusiasm, with which this idea has been taken up, has 
roused the Professors of other departments to attempt 
work of a similar nature, and already rumors are beard 
of French and Greek plays that are to be given in the 
near future. This plan of giving plays in the ancient 
and also in the modern languages certainly has many 
things to commend it, and but few or none against it. 
It Is not our intention to enter into a discussion of these, 
points, but only to call the attention of students to this 
subject, one that has already received the attention of 
Eastern colleges and at many led to the custom of giv- 
ing Qreek and Latin plays. The benefit that those wlio 
take part in such a play will derive, will be far greater 
tlian they would obtain by double as much reading. The 
careful critical study necessary in order to present a play, 
will give them an insight into ^he chief ciiaraoteriBtias

add one more to the many attractions at present otfered

atudents at tbe law lecture room, for Wednesday, the 
15th instant, at 2 p. h. At this hour about five hundred 
students assembled, and the meeting was Anally organ- 
ized by placing Mr. Niblack in the chair, and making 
Mr. Dorland secretary. There was considerable trouble 
and diSBculty experienced in keeping the meeting in 
order, owing to the high pitch of indignation to which 
the students had been wrought, and this excitement led 
to the passing of one or two motions, wlitch we fear at 
some near-day we wilt have occasion to regret. But on 
the whole the proceedings of the meeting were charac- 
terized by tbe gentlemanly spirit which prevailed. At 
this meeting the following resolutions were passed : 

Retolved, Thai we da not patronize Buy person who advertlnes 
hlB bnaines* la the Dally NewB, and that we dlscontlnuetopur- 
ohBia the pftper. 

Renliiea, TliBt the Chair appoint ■ committee of three to com- 
niaolcste with allnhoadTerllwIn the Dally News, and to notify 
tfaem that anleiu their advertlsraenlii be withdrawn from that 
paper within one week, we cenHe to pnlronlie them. 

Baolitd, That a oomnilltee of one from each department of the 
Unlremlly he appointed to see that the names of those who wllb- 
draw tbeir advertlsemenls from the News, and alBOUf LbOBe who 
do nut do BO, appear on the hullPtln boHrdsof tbe respective de- 

There was also a resolution passed condemning Mr. 
Hill's actions at the Opera House, but as we think these 
were hasty and unjust we refrain from publishing them. 
Surely for the students to pass such a resolution on ex 
parte statements Is as unjust as the article which they 
met to refute. A second meeting was held on the 16th 
instant, at which the following resotutlonH were adopted: 

Whiheab, The Ann Arbor Dally News In Ita Issue of the Mth 
Inititnt makes certain chsities agolnst tbe students, which If true, 
would not only be a disgrace to tbe Institution witbin whose hon- 
ored walls we seek toT knowledge, but wonid also brand us with 
well-earned infamy 1 and 

Whereas, Not we alone are Interested In the Irulh or Ihlslty 
of these cbsrges. but also the homes which we bave left, and the 
people of the slate of Mlchisan, tbe Dilrfame of whose ITnlver- 
slly Is attacked 1 therefore. 

Jfeiolved.That we, the students of the University of Michigan, 
pledge our honor to the following declarations; 

First. That the scandalous charges, one and all, are without 
even the foundation of Ibct. 

Second. That so far from being rude and Insulting to women. 
ne believe that they themselves wilt bear usuul la Bajlug there 

Is no city In the land wh«re ladles are treated with more reepeet, 

and that by the students. 

Third. That we helteve that thestudents were not responsible 
for whatever at dislurbauce occurred at the Open House. In this 

city, o 

I thee< 

Is nuknown— a name, 

Fourth. That "rowdyism" a 
not a practice. 

Fifth. That tbe«e facts are known to every well-informed citi- 
zen of Aon Arbor, the editor of the Dally News not excepted. 
' Sixth. That If any grounds for such charges have existed dur- 
ing: the present season, evea la Isolated aud Individual cases. It Is 
Dotonly without ourapproballon, but also wllbont our knowledge. 

Seventh. That tbe charges cannot be made true by SDbse- 
quenily explaining that they were not meant to apply to many ; 
lalsehood does nut become truth by removing lialf Its falilly. 

Eighth. That wbatever tbe motive of the author may have 
rges are a calurooy, la which every one with a good 

le !■ lute 

Senolitd, That we send to our homes the tidings that they are 
yet undlsgraced; to the people of Mlcblxan, that weare Dot un- 
mlndrul of the privileges which their heneflceneeallbrds us: to 
tbe public, that whatever Ann Arbor may have done to US, honor 
has taught us to act like men. 

Aetofced. That these resolutions be given lo tbe papers (hr 
publlcatloo. with the request that tbey be nut slower (o pobllah 
the good coQcernlng us than lo parade tbe evil. 

A committee was appointed to investigate the 
trouble at the Opera House and ascertain whether or not 
Mr. Hill was responsible for it. This indeed was a step 
In the right direction, and it argued but poorly for the 
students tliat so many were uuwilling to take tdls step, 
or to allow Mr. Hilt to present his side of the question. 
Indeed, at times there was a spirit shown that would 
have been a disgrace to a crowd of infants, let alone col- 
lege students, aud It was well that there were some who 
had sense enough to try to subdue such a display of 
feeling. The steps taken to kill the advertisements Id 
the News should have been considered deliberately he- 
fore being published. Tliat it Is what the News de- 
serves we do not deny, but look back to our experience 
of two years ago and see if there is any guarantee in it, 
that the students will adiiere to such resolutions; but 
now that the resolution Is passed and gone forth to the 
public, we would earnestly beg those, that bave it In 
their power, to carry it out to iu fullest extent, so that 
la the future our actions may bave more force than in 
the past. 

In spite of tbe fact that we have an association called 
the Students' Lecture Association, It has become evident 
that the best lectures offered here this year have not been 
under the ausplcesof tbe Lecture Association, but under 
thoeeofMr. Hlllat theopera house. This certainly does 
not appear to be right. We are well aware that the Lec- 
ture Board defend their action in having so many con- 
certs, by the fact that concerts are better patronized than 
lectures. This may be true and would certainly justify 
them in lutrudiicinga large number of concerts Into their 
conrseof eiitertaiunients; butsurelyin the lectures they 
do olTer us, we have a right to expect first class speakers. 
In the present course there is only one that the students

were really pleased to see announced. Werefer to Pres- 
ident Angell. It is needless to mention thereasnOH why 
the iiauie of one so well known to us all, should be wel- 
comed on thelUtof leeturers. Ofthe lecturers tbat have 
already appeared, Hon. Geo. R Wendliug was the ouly 
one worth hearing, and yet he watt not such an oratoraa 
Tllton or Talmage. The change ^m Mlln to French 
could not possibly have been one for the better, as a 
poorer lecturer or speaker It has rarely been our misfor- 
tune to hear. We are aware that the Faculty prohibit 
the Board from having such men as Tllton and Iiiger- 
soli, but surely there are men such as Phillips, Storrs, 
and Proctor, to whom no objection can be raised. Ex- 
actly what good the Faculty aecompllsh in prohibiting 
Buch men as the former, from lecturing In University 
Hall we fall to see ; ff It Is nierely to prevent the stu- 
dents from hearing them and their beliefs, the Faculty 
ftll to accomplish their purpose, eiace these men lecture, 
on an average, once in two years at the opera house. 
We are sorry that the Lecture Board labors under this 
disadvantage, but on the other hand It does not seem to 
l>e necessary for them to bring liere so many poor sj)eak- 
ers. This Is a matter which future Boards would do 
well to consider, and before long we hope the Faculty 
will withdraw thetr objections to such men as Ingersoll 
so that the Board will labor under no such disadvanta- 

Last evening Armory Hall presented a gay and va- 
rltd appearance to the eyes of the many spectators that 
were led there by the charms of good music, and a throng 
of dancers. The occasion of this was the Society Hop 
given under the auspices of the Junior class. This is 
the third hop given under this maiiagement, and the 
hops certainly do not seem to have suffered troai the 
change. Last night there was an attendance of about 
fifty couple, while the gallery was completely filled; 
Spell's Detroit orchestra furnished the music so that the 
hop eould not have been bettered in that particular. 
Amongst those present we noticed many alumni, and 
also a great numberof strangers. The hall itself has been 
greatly Improved, since last year, by the liberal use of 
paint; the ceilings and walls were finished In dark col- 
ors whlcli gave a changed and bettered appearance to 
the hall. The walls were hung with monograms of the 
different societies glviugtbe hop, most of which were 
very neat aud tasty. Around the ball were placed easy 
arm chairs and sofas, which added not a little to the en- 
joyment of the dancers. The dancing began about ten 
o'clock, and from that time on there was no Interruption 
to the enjoyment of the dancers until supper was an- 
nounced. This was served In Mr. Hangsterfer's usual 
style which would be greatly improved by a little more 
eystem In his mannerof waitingon the guests, Rutthe 
supper was a minor point, and soon all were once more 
gliding over the smooth floor, keeping time with the in- 
spiring strains of the music. The festivities were kept 

up till a late hour, when the guests began slowly to de- 
part to their homes with a feeling that the hop bad been 
a success. The committee have good cause to feel proud 
of the arrangements that were made lu all directloas for 
the comfort of their guests. 

Some time ago as a party of students were returning 
from Hank's they stopped to sereuade a friend, but be- 
fore they were fairly begun, our friend, Mr. Porter, of 
the police, with the rest of that worthy and efficient 
body, appeared on the scene and commanded them to 
move on. Not satlsQed with ordering, they immedi- 
ately proceeded to move them on by the laying on of 
hands In orthodox police style. One of the boys was 
considerably hurt In the scuffie and accordingly brought 
suit for assault and battery against Porter In thejuftice 
court. The trial came off Thursday, resulting in a dis- 
agreement of the Jury. It Is understood that the suit 
will be continued. We sincerely hope that a flue will 
be Imposed upon Mr. Porter sufficient to make him un- 
derstand that the policeman's club and badge do not 
give him plenary authority to insult students at his 
pleasure. Serenading Is not, wo believe, an offense 
against peace and good order, and this is not the llrst 
time that Mr. Porter and his staff have attempted to 
stop it. Riotous behavior on the streets we oondema as 
strongly as any one, and any efilbrtaof the police to sup- 
press it have our sympathy, hut of such behavior there 
is no evidence in this case. We do not believe that the 
respectable citizens of Ann Arbor approve of the eon- 
duct of the police, though from the course of a newspa- 
per here it would seem that they are backed up by a 
certain element. This element it Is, we presume, that 
has kept such men on the force year after year though 
notoriously unfit for the position. If respectable citi- 
zens would bestir themselves sufflaient to get decent 
men upon the police force, there would be less trouble 
upon the streets and in the opera house. There are 
among the students, as in any collection of young men 
equally large, some rowdies ; there are many more that 
love fun and excitement. Such performances as this 
of Porter's and those that caui«ed the trouble at the 
opera house, will unite not only them, but all students 
that have any self-respect, aud instead of preventing 
trouble will li 

Last evening there was present quite a large audi- 
ence to greet the Arbuckle Concert Company. The 
concert itself, as a whole, will compare most favorably 
with the other entertainments already given by the 
Leuture Association, The great attraction, of course, 
was Mr. Arhuckle himself. As a cornet virtuoso we 
have no f)iult to find with him. There was a volume 
and depth in his playing which many of us well remem- 
ber both Levy and 8ketton lacked. Tlie rest of the 
troupe afforded a fair support. 1 >

" O, yee," ray cousin replies to my inquiries; "we 
have good Instruction In art. One of our best professors 
lectures to us an hour every week, In which time he 
treats historically and critically all sculpture, paintiog, 
and architecture from Ancient Egypt to Young Amer- 
ica, illustrating Ills talk with— drawings on the black- 

" But," say I, " are there no- statutes to show the 
points of excellency of the dllTeretit sculptors and to 
furnish a basis of judging of tbelr comparative merits 
and order of precedence?" 

" No, the Brents of the University seem to think 
that statues would be too large and cumtwrsome. They 
think that six-inch ee-bigh plaster-cast repreeentatlous 
will exhibit the beauties of the master-piece Just as well 
and are much more convenient — " 

" — iD price. Are there no paintings of the masters 
eitber? Burely there are here some famous old pictures 
of the best painters of the various achools." 

" I don't know whether we have any paintings or 
not. The professor has beeu regaling us with the biog- 
raphies and characterlellce of the painters from Praxi- 
' tiles tAOacar Sorg, but basasyetshowuuanoneof tbelr 
work. To-day, however, our professor has promised to 
point out the beauties of two or three pictures that are 
in the possession of the University. Will you go up to 
bear his lecture?" 

" Yes, I would b% glad to go." And we went accord- 

The walls of the rooms into which we went to bear 
the disquisttlon on art were utterly bare. The lecturer 
stood on the platforui In front of about fifty students. 
Hung on the blnckboard at his back were three pictures. 
After an eioqueut introduction on paintings and pictures 
In genera], tlie professor proceeded to give a special ac- 
count of the pictures before us : 

" The one on the right, ladies and gentlemen, is a 
portrait of George Washington, by Keppler, and was 
issued by IHtck on the fourth of July last. The one on 
theieft is tbeilkeuessof our Savior. It is not known 
by what band [baod-prese, probably,) it was done. It 
was presented to the University by the Union Tract So- 
ciety. The one In the center Is a cA^ d'ceuvre. It has 
not beeu decided yet whether It Is Venue or the Ooddess 
of Liberty. Its origin Is uncertain, but we have traced 
it with considerable accuracy to a back number of Har- 
per's Weekly, and there is strong clroumslaDtiat ev 1- 
deuce to show that the artist is Thomas Nast." 

Having flnUhed this brief history of the pictures, 
til e lecturer proceeded to point out iu an enthusiastic 
style the technical merits of each, the perspective, tone, 
chiartMcuro, etc. He then continued : 

" We should study art not only In the pictures, but 
In the grouping of pictures. Some may think It does 
not matter in what way he arranges bis paiutluga and 
engravings, but It does. A picture is greatly effected by 
its surroundings. An un artistically arranged group 
may produce a worse impression than any one of the 
pictures would by itself, wliltea proper grouping of even 
poor pictures may give a delightful effect. In grouping, 
then, there may be displayed a penetration of Intellect 
and a philosophical insight into the logical sequence of 
things rarely to be met with eveu within the pale of le- 
gitimate art. Now, to the unsophisticated the manner 
In which I have arranged these masterpieces may ap- 
pear unintelligible and even ludicrous ; but It Is the con- 
summation of art. That Washington, Venus, and Jesus 
Christ should be grouped together may seem at first 
sight Incongruous. But when we give more than a cur- 
sory, a critical, glance, and more thau an indifferent, a 
pblioeopbical, inspection, harmony appears. In the 
center you see a specimen representation of primitive 
man, or man in bis primitive state; on the right the 
Father of bis Country ; and on the left the Son of Man. 
In the first Is represented Humanity's birthday and tbs 
dawn of Life; in the second, the Republic's birthday 
and the dawn of Liberty ; In the third, the True Relig- 
ion's birthday and the dawn of Faith In Immortality. 
Each is an embodiment of an all-important epoch in the 
world's hlstojy ; but in the combination there is linked 
together a chain of events the obliteration of which 
would be not merely the destruction of the world's his- 
tory, but of the world itself. What could be more lucid, 
more consequential, or more felicitously appropriate ? I 
am sorry to say, ladles and gentlemen, that these con- 
stitute the entire University gallery at present. But la 
response to my appeals, several friends of the Univer- 
sity and of art have sent back numbers of Puck, Har- 
per's, Frank Leslie's, and the Police Qazette.. The 
choicest productions will be cut out and pasted on the 
wails about this room, and If only a few more of our 
friends and patrons will favor us in a similar manner, 
the Chair of Art in the University of Michigan will be 
established on a solid, broad, and Liberal footing. "

ones to be found In the town and its vicinity tliat bad

with Mr. Frank E. Baker, one of tbe editore. Tbese 
four do notwUh their names to be published in the 
Chronicle:, although theydonot ob'ectto having tbem 
sent to Dr. Adams. • • 

[The article that Called forth the remonstrance was 
too severe and entirely uncalled for. If we have uuch 
thoughts concerning any of our Instructors, there Is no 
need of expressing thtm. But when such expression Ib 
given, there la also no need of a man's flying around like 
a pea la a skillet, shaking his flat under our noHe, froth- 
log at the mouth, and Inveighing against the arlide as 
the eighth wonder and a masterpiece of inconsistency. 
If to assert that Mr. Adams bad a bad delivery, and that 
hesitation gave an air of uncertainty to his statements, 
and concede that he was well versed in his subject, Is 
inconsistent ; wliat Is It, to concede that he had an un- 
pleasant style and assert that " we remember his Influ- 
ence as one of the most decided impulses we ever re- 
ceived towards genuine criticism and independent 
thought"? ffaey are tbe same stamp looked at from 
different sliies. Neither of the two positions seem to us 
contradictory, but probably the geutleoian's new logic 
will explain the Inconsisttincy. 

The remonatrator thinks the article too severe, others 
not severe enough ; that is neither here nor there. But 
what does his list of one hundred names signify ? We 
have not been so zealous as the gentleman in question, 
and have talked with ouly twenty, as chance brought 
them In ourway. What do tbey say ? Horrors! They 
eay they have not received the reports from their ezatn- 
. ination yet, and want " Hank " to tlilnk kindly of them 
when he sees their names on tbe list sent him. What 
shameless time-servers! Whatcringlngpolioy I There

Never was there a character, of either sex, who has 
received such an equal share of adoration and execra- 

tion. Worshipers prostrate themselves before lier shrine, 
while moralli>ts point with but too unerring finger to 
(he blood In which b«r adorers kneel. 

And surely It is a doubtful cout«8t i>etween admira- 
tion and hornir. In tiiepresenceof Elizabeth and Mary 
of Bcntiand It Is impossible to be impartial. To enter 
Into the details of that protracted struggle without tak- 
ing one side or the other requires an amount of candor 
almost inflnite. 

Mary Stuart inherited from her father a spirit ad- 
venturous, romantic, gallant, and poetin, but combined 
with It the genius of her mother— at once grave, ambi- 
tious, and sectarian, which so distinguished the princess 
of tbe house of Guise. Her nature was essentially Gre- 
cian and received additional Are from the romance aud 
impetuosity of the French. Young and accompllsbed, 
brought up amid the fashion and frivolty of tbe Court 
of France, she possessed much of the character of the 
unfortunate Anne Boleyn aud bergenerous nature, once 
caught In the meshes of passion, became perfectly un- 
cont rotable. 

The languishing music of BUzio appealed to her 
sense of the beautiful ; the stately grave and wit of Darn- 
ley at times won her heart ; and the wild chivalry 
and daring of Bothwell completely enchanted her and 
blinded ber conscience. 

We need not reproduce that history which the world 
knows by heart, nor enter into a criticism of ber char- 
acter. Tbe candid mind cannot believe her totally in- 
nocent. There have been those who have attempted to 
refute every charge and to explain every suspicious cir- 
cumstance. But can we believe In her purity of inten- 
tion toward Bothwell in the faceof his cruel divorceand 
tlie doubly suspicious and appalling death of Darnley ? 
Can we l>elieve Blzzio to be simply tbe favorite music- 
ian of the Queen , or even maintain ber Innocence of the 
plots against Elizabeth 7 The real force of her character 
is altogether lost tbe moment we attempt to make out 
for her that transparent plea. 

But against tbe charges of her enemies, we may 
seek a partial excuse In tbe character of the times. Had 
Mary been King Instead of Queen of Scotland, a crime 
equivalent to tbe death of Darnley would have been aa 
nothing In oomparisoa with tbe crimes of Hepry the 
Eight, tbe great and wise statesmen of England. Can 
we censure her even for conspiring against tbe life of 
Elizabeth, imprlaoned for eighteen long years, her hopes 
alternately ralsedandcrusbed by Elizabeth's vacillating 
and treacherous conduct toward her? 

There If, a singular want of generosity in Ellzat>eth'B 
treatment of Mary ; a suspicion, not entirely unwar- 
ranted; and although she often uses soft words, in do 
action does siie appear other than a zealous QueeD 
scheming to crush her rival and guard herself against 
tlie attacks of Catholicism. While the execution of

One bright morning, several summers ago, a stranger 
of foreign bearing stepped from the cars at Niagara, and 
inquired, fn broken English, the way to the falls. Be- 
ing directed, be set ofT at a brisk pace, and soon ap- 
proached his destination. As be drew near Manchester, 
and could distinctly hear the roar of the falling waters, 
his step quickened almost to a run, while his fiaoe 
beamed with the liveliest expectation. But when he 
reached them, he ran down the bank, and bathing his 
face and hands In tbe water, alternately laughed and 
cried for Joy. At last be rose, and running far along 
the shore, disappeared in a neighboring wood. 

The next morning Uie news spread like wild-flre 
through the place, that a maniac was about to leap into 
Niagara. Immense crowds Immediately hurried to the 
ppnt, and there, upon a crag at the extreme point of 
Ooat Island, overlooking tbe yawning abyss, stood our 
friend of the previous morning. He was clad In a close 
fltttng costume, which showed a flrni-knit frame with 
muscles that Hercules might have envied, combined 
with tbe grace and ease of an Apollo. The shape of his 
bead marked him as a Sandwich Islander, and his Im- 
mense hands and broad feet seemed designed for the 

Turning suddenly, with the agility of a mountain 
goat be leaped upon the island, and turned several liand- 
springs and double summersets, as if to test himself. 
Then, gathering himself up, he rushed to the water's 
edge, and with a tremendous bound and a yell of exul- 
tation be leaped full thirty feet from tbe rock, into the 
midst of the raging torrent. A cry of horror burst from 

the asseiubled crowd as he was seen to rise to tbe sur- 
face, hang for a moment upon the brink of the preci- 
pice, and disappear with the falling flood. 

But let us leave the crowd to gase and shudder, and 
follow the fortunes of our hero. Far from partaking of 
the feelings of the crowd, he felt btmself whirled and 
tossed by the elements with a thrill of ecstasy. When 
almost at tbe bottom nf his fearful leap, with one stroke 
of bla powerful arms he shot himself clear of tbe wator 
and fell into a seething pool iiehlnd the m^n fall, thus 
escaping a weight which would otherwise have orushed 
him to jelly. 

Rising to the surface, he was swimming leisurely 
to a rock, when an immense rattlesnake leaped sud- 
denly from a dark recess, and wound it« deadly coils 
around blm with an iron grip. At first he was stupe- 
fied with terror, but recovering himself, be grasped the 
reptile's throat with a vice-like clutoh. In a short time 
the colls began to loosen, until, freeing hia other arm, 
be severed the head entirely from the body, and tying 
the tail, containing thirty-eight rattles, about his waist, 
he leaped through an opening in tlie cataract, and pro- 
ceeded, under wator, down the stream. 

When under the foot-bridge, bearing a great sbo^it- 
ing, he rose, and beheld the multitude. In the wildest 
excitement, searahing for him in every direction. They 
immediately caught sight of him, and Joel Bobinaon, 
a daring navigator, nobly undertook to rescue him in 
his boat, tbe " Maid of the Mist." Bat, dlsdalulng 
their efTorts, our hero again disappeared and proceeded 
on hla course- 
He bod almost reached the railway bridge when an 
enormous bear, which had escaped from a barge, sent 
over the falls for an experiment, seized him, and they 
sank to tbe bottom together. For a long time they 
tugged and strained, agitating the water for roda around, 
now one having the advantage and now the other, until 
at length, with giant strength, our hero hurled the des- 
perato brute from him with all his power. 

Our hero then swam quietly on, and, seeing some- 
thing glittering on tbe bottom, descended to it, and 
found a gold watch, beautifully worked, engraved with 
the initials 8. P. This be carefully preserved, and after- 
wards forwarded it to poor Patch's sorrowing friends. 

It was now nearly night, and our hero, proceeding 
a few miles further, amusing himself by chasing the 
eek and turtles, stopped at a town near the outlet of the 
river Into the lake. 

He was very desirous of repeating tbe trip, but hav 
ing lately been converted to Christianity In hie Pacific 
home, the morrow being the Sabbath, he put up at the 
principal hotel of the place, and Impatiently awaited 
the next "week-day." 

Hoping that at some future time we may accom- 
pany him down bis second voyage, we will here bid 
bim, and our readers, adieu, _ J _ _ _ _ ..-C

Now that examlnfttitiDB are over, perhops some 
thiiige of Interest may be Bald concerning the vuri- 
oufl Idean of llieir worth and the Jifltreut syBtenis used 
by our inBtructors. Fortunately IheoldHyBlem of mark- 
ing, which even now Ib practiced by niaiiy univentltieB 
and coUegeB eatt and Bnuth of us, Id nut in vogue here. 
Where esrneA atudent^ are engaged in thepunuitof 
the higher knowledge, it ia ridiculous to say tiiut 
has a one or two per cent, better idea of thesuhject 
Investigated than another. Ills founder! on the opinion 
that we are Btlll children and need those puerile incen- 
tives to make us get our lessons. Therefore, it is with 
pleasure that we see the Harvard, and other papers, 
denouncing that system and demanding a manly one. 
With UB, while the professors diflbr considerably 
in their estimates of the value of an examination, the 
tendency Ib to have each scholar stand or fkll upon his 
recitations during the ecniester, hence less attention la 
being given to examinations, and in some inetunces 
they are entirely abolitihed. But as a rule the new and 
younger members of the faculty are even yet fond of 
propounding difficult conundrums at the semi-annuals. 
And on the other hand we And some of the older ones 
giving the usual advance or review lesaon and conduct- 
ing the examination as an ordinary recitation, otiiers 
instead assign topics for treatises upon certain subjects 
which are to be handed In before the close of the term, 
and others determine whether ornot a student nhould 
pass simply by bis critlclttmBon the work during the 
half year. And still another method Is to give a aeries 
of questions to the class before the close of the term and 
have the examination consist of Beleetions from tlie Hat. 
With some where the oral quentioniiig is given, there is 
an approach to the Amherst plan of passing ull who 

have attended renltaHons regularly. But here Ihey 
miike (he rigor of the examination acecording to the 

The advantage of giving a thorough examination is 
that it compels the Mudent to give his work a careful 
and <*nmprehensive review, thereby getting a better 
knowledge of the study as a whole. Even If it does 
Induce, what is culled " cramming," as a reault, much 
of it will stick in the memory. The utility of the plan 
by which an e!<say upon one particular topic is re<iulred 
Is, that It secures at Ifast an exhaustive and profitable 
research amongst many t>ooks and In many directions 
after every thing pertaining lo that one subject. 

Where written examlnaliona are required there Is 
alwaya the Inducement for the uiie of the pony, and 
indeed, wliere a series of queatlnna is previously given, 
the temptation to be " well prepared " Is too great for 
many to resist. To be forewarned .la to be forearmed. 
However, with a verbal Inquirj this avenue Is closed 
and each one has to rest upon his own knowledge. 

In discusalng this subject Justice would not be done 
to it If we did not mention the convenient practice on 
the part of a few of giving each year the same set of 
questions as that of the years l>efore. Of course the 
classes are dllftrently composed, yet in instltutloDS of 
this character traditions are good and ranch time Is thus 
saved to the busy students by their knowing what la to 
be the nature of the questions asked. We confeM that 
It is a difficult problem how best to ascertain a person's 
understanding of a subject, and much experience alone 
can solve It. 


VER all the country, editors of college papers are 
laying aside their pens and retiring from the pro- 
fession. With tbe close of the half year, as the older 
leave and the newer ones arrive, comes the retrospect. 
It is sometfmes with sorrow ; sometimes with gratifica- 
tion. While the duties are many, they are every where 
Ixed with pleasure. Even the "book grabs" and 
set ups" are not wholly tetlioua and provocative of 
ennui. As to the course of Thr Chbonicle, we liave 
received many cheering words from professors, students 
and alumni for the high tone of the articles, both In 
moderate words and conservative Ideas. We have 
sought to attack no churcli or other body of people who 
trying to benefit mankind. As no thing is perfect 
an opportunity for criticism is casually presented. We 
have then criticised with a desire for betterment. As 
our lime was limited we did not always get the opinion 
of quite all of our readers before publishing, hence some 
who know little of their own business and less of ours 
have occasionally meddled. These are pitied for their 
ignorance. Concerning the present and future, the 
hearty support of alumni and professors and students 
makes us glad. The year is a prosperous one. Tbe 
gymnasium will yet be erect^.. _ _ _ _

The class of 'M had a stormy meeting on Balurday, February 
1th. It reminded us forcibly of Ibe old-time meetings of '811 by lu 
bitterness and excitement. The reason of this far dif- 
ferent from Dhe usual alyle of '8l's meetings, was the Aict that a 
certain promlaenl member ol tbe Junior class desired to be re- 
ceived " 1dU> the fellowship and communion of the mighty claas 
of 'SI." He addressed an elaborate and blrly well drawn docu- 
ment to Iheolasa, aettlng forth his reasons, which painted '8S Id 
no enviable colors, and tended to Increase the manifold excellen- 
ces of '81. After many spirited speeches, and the presentation of 
appropriate resolutions, the whole nifair was referred U> a com- 
mittee of sven teen, with full power to examine Into tbe moral and 
social " capability " (as one sophomore eloquently puts It) of the 
applicant. After disposing of the Junior s case, and sundry other 
business, tbe class appolnteil a coniinlttee to confer with theutbor 
committees on the reception for President Aiigell.

Saturday, February 2Sth, was a day of note In the 
history of our college, as that was the day that brought 
our long-abxeut Proeldent safely back to the University 
and his many friends in Ann Arbor. That It was a day 
of pleasure to all studeuts no one cftuld doubt, after look- 
ing at the happy faces of the many studeDt« assembled 
to meet him. Even the sophomores and freshmen, who 
have entered thecollegesince President Angell'sdepar- 
ture, seemed to realise the Joyfuhiess of the occasion, 
and enter into all the preparations for the reception of 
our President, with as much vim as those that liave en- 
joyed a personal acquaintance with Dr. Angell, The 
greater part of the Faculty, together with tlie PreBldenU 
of the various classes of each department, met President 
Angell at Detroit and accompanied him to Ann Arbor. 
While this delegation were performing their pleasant 
dutiesiuDetroit, at Ann Arbor active prepar^it ions were 
going on for tlie President's reception here. At 10 a.m. 
tbestudems began to assemble at the University grounds 
and form the procession. Shortly before 11 a. H. the 
procession, headed by the city band, marched down to 
the depot in the following order; Literary, Medical, 
Law, Pharmacy, Hoinwopathlc, and Dental Depart- 
ments, At the depot there were many citizens, and In 
all, tite crowd Is variously estimated at 2,000 or even 
more, the greater part of which was students. As the 
train drew into the station cheers upon clieera, from the 
Immeose crowd, bore a hearty welcome to Dr. Angell. 
These were, If possible, redoubled, as he stepped from 
the train. In a short time the procession was again in 
motion, tl>e Dental Department leading, followed by 
Homoeopathic, Pliarmacy, Law, Medical, and Literary 
Departments, Dr. An;;ell, escorted by the Faculty, 
bringing up the rear. At South University Avenue the 

procession broke Into two lines, and made room for the 
President's carriage to pass between the lines. At his 
iiouse Dr. Angell, in a few happy words, expressed his 
gratitude and appreciation of the cordial welcome ex- 
tended to bim by tlie students. It was with reluctant 
steps that the finally took their way from the President's 
beuse, every one eagerly wishing that it was time for 
the evening reception. However the time finally came, 
and at 8 o'clock University Hall was filled even to the 
rows of seats. There must have been between 2,- 
400 and 2,500 people seated In tlie Hall. Upon the plat- 
form there were seated the members of the different 
Faculties ^and representatives of the city. Dr. Frieze 
made the opening address and welcomed Dr. Angell 
t>ack on behalf of the Regents, Faculties, and students. 
He reviewed the circumstances of his appointment to 
this important position, and congratulated him on the 
success of his mission, on the honor that he had con- 
ferred upon himself and the University, both by his 
appointment and by his success. He tlien reviewed the 
condition of the University during Dr. Angell's ab- 
sence, and earneatiy hoped that nothing liad happened 
to Its detriment during this time, and that he now 
gladly turned the cares and honors of the presidency 
■ to Dr. Angell. Judge Harrlman followed with an 
ressof welcome in behalf of the city, Board of Edu- 
cation, and Common Council. He spoke of the pride 
that the people of Ann Arbor had felt, that one of their 
cillzens-had been called upon to flll such an Important 
position as the one which Dr. Angell has so successfully 
carried out. He said that the citizens of Ann Arbor 
bad always followed his negotiations with great Interest 
and pride, and were glad to add their welcome to those 
already given him. Prof. C. E. Adams read the resolu- 
tions of the Common Council expressing their gratifica- 
tion at Dr. Angell's safe arrival home. ' As Dr. Angell 
stepped forward to make his response, he was greeted 
with a storm of applause. When this had ceased, he 
spoke of the feelings of gratification and happiness he 
experienced in ills return home; of the pleasure that 
he had derived from tiie many kindly and regular mes- 
sages he had received while at Pekin, He thanked the

It is one of the greatest events of the year as well as 
one of tbe most pleasant occasions of some of the Eng- 
lish and Gei man universities when tbe annual play la 
presented by the undergraduates. This play is usually 
in a foreign tongue, and under tbe supervision either of 
a hired tutor, or, better still, of one of tbe faculty who 
is both competent and willing to devote hla time to the 
long process of drilling necessary for a fair representa- 
tion. Of late years this custom has been to some extent 
adopted by our own colleges, and we, accordingly, are 
favored with renditions of the best plays In Greek, 
Latin, and French. Therefore for the awakening of in- 
terest in the Kludy of French, as well as for mutual im- 
provement, an aKSOciation has been formed in our midst 
with tbe intention of giving. In June, Lee I'laidetirs, 
tbe only comedy of Racine. Prof. De Pont, witli whom 
the idea originated, has kindly consented to drill tbe 
company, and aince Kovembor the work bus been pros- 
ecuted. Thin play waa given during the bolidaya in 
Paris, and M. Porel, of the director Odeon, la now trans- 
cribing the i6les, with descriptions of costumes, ace- 
nery, histrionic action, etc., for the use of our students 
here. Now, this comedy which has been selected is a 
good one, not only for its fun, its epigrams, and the 
proverbs, but also for its keen satire upon the lawyers 
and courts. Through it all runs the same genius which 
formed ^Mer, FhMre and ^f/iaffe, incomparable pro- 
ductions of beauty and grandeur of style. Hence, as 
tbe piece is to tie enacted by students of tbe University, 
aided by instructions from tbe very home of the drama, 
and by tbe careful training of one so well qualilied as 
Prof. DePont, we shall look forward to its production 
with interest. 

On theeveningof tbe anniversary of Washington's 
birthday a very large audience llnleiied to an addreaa in 
Univewily Hall, by Stewart L, Woodford, of New York 
city. The speaker was rather unfortunate in the choice 
of his subject, aa it i* one wblcli ba^ been raked over 
tbe caals very often lately, and with which every one is 
fairly fumillar, yet he could hardly have chosen a Wi\y- 
Ject that would have gained the aympathies of hia audi- 
ence more completely than the life and character of 
James A. Qarfleld. The main object of the discourse 
was to exhibit the benefita of constant application to 
atudy, and the practical use that Garfield made of hie 
scholarship. Ue reviewed the liUtory of bia life, how 
he bad risen from nothing to various high places, and 
filled them all in a atatevmaulike manner; touching 
slightly on bis attainments in the many fields where be 
was especially noted. The speaker very appropriately 
Illustrated the two benefits ariHing from Garfield's thor- 
ough, though quickly acquired, knowledge of tbe Ohio 
valley, an invaluable and lasting benefit to the State of 
Ohio, and a cauae of bis own speedy promotion to Brig- 
adier General. He showed with what rapidity Garfield 
prepared himself for the army by atudying tbe pre- 
scribed curriculum of West Point, after he became con- 
vinced that a civil war was Imminent; bow, after he 
had entered tbe army, hla knowledge of Cieear'a cam- 
paign in Gaul was of practical l>euefit to himself and 
his command ; with what zeal he applied himself to the 
study of political economy, after he bad entered Con- 
gress, even learning the French language for that pur- 
pose. The speaker closed by referring to the anxiety 
felt by the whole civilized world for tbe fate of our l>e- 
loved President while lying at tbe point of death ; and 
by hoping that his death has at least done something 
towards eradicating sectional animosities. Mr. Wood- 
for<l ih not blessed with a tine delivery, or the enthusi- 
aam necessary to arouse an audience. He held hishear- 
erd by what he said, and not by the way in which he 
said iL The most lisllesa bearer could not help noticing 
such slips of the tongue as "Tbe sunrise rise in the 
morning" and "The sunset act at night." He liad a 
habit of walking from one end of the stage to the other, 
and at times of turning his back to tbe audience, and 
aildresslng tbe chairman solely. Neither of these trails 
is commendable or pardonable in a public speaker. 

Amongst the many happy allusions to college afTairs 
made by President Angell In bis response to the address 
of welcome last Saturday evening, there was none which 
brought such prolonged applause as the one referring to 
the pressing wants of our library, and expressing a de- 
sire to have ^,000 volumes for circulation. He well 
said: "Our weak point Is unquestionably our library 
Just at present, and that we must strive to strengthen." 
The librarian wisely argues that as there Is no library of 
any consequence either In Detroit, Chicago, or Clnoln-

weit. Welinvecertiihi coiiilition^ here that even nitli 
our lliuited re^nurce^ have already made fur 113 a library 
where all la wotld, aubstantial mid neceisary material. 
TIiImIs not a public city library where there esixta an 
overwhelming demand for Action of the lowest order, 
but on the other hand, here, If anywhere, the claa-ilc!^ 
of all languages, and all other wurka that are of a high 
and ennobling character, are required. Then, too, no 
other place In all the land ha'^ a better system of choos- 
ing the book-t mo*t Decenary. For It U not left tn the 
weak decision of an inexperienced man, as In very 
many inntancea, hut not only do we have the mature 
and long-trained Judgment or Mr. Davis, an enthusiast 
in bibliography, but also the recommendations of six of 
the professors who are upon the library coiiimItte«, and 
who never order a volume until these questions are sat- 
is^Mitorlly answered : What end will it serve ? must it 
be obtained now? can It be procured at the lowest price? 
As a pleasing evidence of the past care in selection we 
are proud to say that there Is no library in the country, 
not even llie Harvard or Peabody with their thousands 
of volumes, which has such a call for books as our own 
little collectlnn. Htatistioa show that we make a better 
use of our library than is made at any other place. Blnce 
there Is here such care In selection and such an appreci- 
ation of good literature, is it possible for any other place 
to have so just a claim for a large library as we our- 
selves? Now that we are soon to have a library build- 
ing which will be perfectly flre-proof, there cannot be 
fear for the destruction of its contents. Therefore we 
would strougly recommend to all lovers of the Uni- 
versity to present books to it, either by donation or by 
will. East of UFi it haH become all the rage amongst 
alumni to bequeath their private collections tn their 
university. Wherethere are duplicates, exchanges with 
other libraries make many valuable additions. We 
learn that on the part of the library committee there is 
a strong desire for the u^e of $10,09) before tranisferrlng 
tlie cotlectlou to the new building, so as to bring the 
library up to a fair standard. If the greatest good to the 
greatest number is cared for, no other improvement or 
addltloD should be made upon the campus before the 
library is materially strengthened. 

Since our la»t issue, which contained an account of 
the two Indignation meetings held by the students In 
the law lecture room, the committee appointed to inves- 
tigate the opera house troubles has made its report, 
whlcli fully sustains the opinion expressed by The 
Chhoniclg. We give In full their report :

The fact that a committee, after a careful Investiga- 
tion of the matter, exonerates Mr. mil, proves our a»er- 
tion that the students were too ha^ty in their judgment 
and actions. It Is more than probable tliitt miny of the 
students have realized, in the past two weeks, as the 
results of their actions, what the cooler and the more 
thoughtful ones tried to have them foresee, so as to spare 
us the mortification of useless meetings, etc. It would 
be well for us all to apply, at all timed and In all places, 
the homely old adage, " Look before you leap."

A few weeks ago you would have thought that the work

city. The reputation of the students of the University 
of Michigan as beiug "well behaved gentlemen" ha^ 
been gaining a strong hold on the minds of the public ; 
and none of us wish to have the results of three year^ of 
hard work destroyed In a day by the rash acts or words 
of some rattle-headed cbank "compose d'yeux, de 
bouches, d'orcilies,"— (we might add sans eerveaux) — 
who has plenty of time to attend to such things. No 
student can see a fellow assaulted by a drunken officer, 
without having the temperature of hie blood some- 
whatralsed, and we are ready to raise our voice In obtain- 
ing redress fo ^proper manner. But we feel sure that no 
such demonstration would ever take place if every mem- 
ber of the University was obliged to pass as severe ati 
examination as a Literary student does on entering. 
This remedy is, of course, in the hands of the Faculty 
only ; but could we be placed In the position of a pater- 
nal to all these cranks, we think that a clean collar at 
least once a month, and a good dose of hemlock shingle 
or old slipper applied properly, would gladden the eyes 
of UB all.

Editors CakotticLs: 

Tbe seml-aanual esamlaations remind ua of some- 
thing VQ buve been wantlnj; toaay foralong time. Our 
examioatfoD syetera is unfair, and tbe proportion men t 
of credits Is a fraud. 

An; professor that conducts hie studies b; recita- 
tion can and must find out during t^e semester whether 
a student has done enough work to merit a " pass," or 
not. And yet the sever&»t examinations given are 00 
text-book work, whereas, if we grant tbe professor or- 
dinary powers of perception, no examination at all Is 
required, or at the most only a slight oral one. We are 
confirmed in this opinion by learning on sure evidence 
that It is a custom with some of our faculty, when they 
have received papers from a large class, merely to glance 
over tbe best to see how good they are, and over the 
worst to see whether a "condition" or "not passed" 
ought to be given. This Is a tacit confession tliat these 
long and hard examinations are a farce. It is our opin- 
ion that t>etter class-niom work, both in advance and 
review, will t>e obtained by giving the student to under- 
stand that on each day's work depends bis success or 
failure In that study, than by letting him entertain the 
opinion that he can make up on examination -day any 
deficiency in bis semester's work. 

Another feature of unfalrneae, but in the opposite 
direction, Is the examinations on courses In lectures. 
In these courses the professor can know nothing or but 
little of any student's proficiency in the subject, except 
by the final examination. In some courses there are no 
quizzeaatali during the semester, in otiiers a few are 
given ]uat before examination week ; and In no course 
of lectured that we have taken has there been any regu- 
lar and efficient quizzing. Now, when there is no other 
way except by examination for tbe professor to find out 
our knowledge or Ignorance of the subject-matter of his 
lectures, we should expect a ratlier searching examina- 
tion. But as a rule, no questions are asked, but wtiat 
can l>e answered either from general information or rea- 
iwn able conjecture. Why is this so? Prot>abIy to make 
tbe lectures popular. How can they help being popu- 
lar, wlien a student can get two or three hours' credit 
by buying a fiften-cent notebook, going to four or five 
of tbe lectures, and cramming ug a couple of hours be- 
fore examtnatioD ? 

Why la no distinction made in examinationa be- 
tween courses of dlffbrent length? Examinationa In 
the short courses are as long and hard, or harder, ttian 
those in the long coursea. We recall our first experience 
in examinations here, Flrat came an examination in 
one-hour course In text-l>ook work. After sweating two 
hours and a half over that, we came to the muclusion 
that examtuations lu the U. of M. were not as easy as 
they might be. In tbe afternoon waa a five-hours' 

course examination. We marched up In aome trepida- 
tion, and as resignedly as an ox to the slaughter. We 
came off victorious, however, in three-quarters of an 
hour. We were convinced that examinations in the U. 
of M. are a very funny thing, " which the same we are- 
free to maintain." 

But the wordt of all Is the system of credits. The 
credit a student gets is regulated by tbe actual number 
of hours that he la In class or lecture rooms, no consid- 
eration at all being taken of the amount of study ex- 
pected of him. Take an example : Zoillogy requires 
five hours' attendance in the lecture room, Historical 
Seminary, three hours In the clasa room. There are no 
qiiliieain Zoology; but questions are given every few 
days, which tbe student Is expected to write out the an- 
swers for from his notes, and band to the professor. 
There are many inatances where tbe student has not 
gone near tbe lecture room afl«r the first day, sending 
bis answers up by some friend. And it Is a notorious 
fact that a student who hands or sends In his answers 
regularly has no difficulty In examination. For such 
sbilly-ahailyand meagre work, five hours credit is given. 
In Historical Seminary five hours of study a week at 
least are required, while every student who can spare 
the time could put teu or fifteen hours a week on this 
study profitably. That is for tbe regular work, leaving 
out of consideration the immense amount of time that 
be puts upon tbe tbeais that is required of him. The 
nature of tbe work is such, tliat a student cannot afford 
to bolt a single meeting of the class ; and, if from any 
cause he is absent from any meeting, be is required to 
stand an examination on the question that waa discussed 
the day of his absence. And it la ndt very far from tbe 
truth to say that It requires as much work to make up 
this one question, as it does to pass a Zoology examina- 
tion. For the course requiring all this work, three hours 
credit Is granted. How our faculty accounts for this 
dlsi>arity, we cannot even conjecture ; but It la a msni- 
feat injustice, and has more Influence on the students' 
elections of studies than the faculty may think for. 
Human nature is weak, and every "snap" Is eagerly 
sought after. That is one reason why our seminary 
coursea, the hardest and best in tbe University, are 
avoided. Another reason la thia : iStmy seniors have 
fourteen or fifteen hours to get ofT each semester la or- 
der to finish the required amount of work, and, Inas- 
muoh as they desire to tiave at least as easy a time in 
their senior as In their other years, they do not choose 
to do an amount of work to get fifteen hours credit lu 
seminary courses that would secure them thirty or forty 
hours credit in "snaps," although they recognize the 
advantages of the seminary method and would t>e glad 
to take such courses if they could get a reasonable 
amount of credit for them. 

The professors must see tliat these things are 90 ; 
and, if they grant the students common sense, they

must know that the etudeats eee them aho. If we

the present eysteui of credits. Make the "siiapu" 
harder, snd give more credit for eeoiiiiary work. Grade 
tbe two cIsBfeBof work by the lime and work required 
In Greek and Latin. One hour's vredlt ought to be 
given for one hour in the class rooin and two hours' 
study; the "tuaps" require disproportionately less, 
and the seminaries disproportionately more, time and

EsiToaa CHBcidci-E: 

l\'h&t crk-ket is to England and La Crosse to Can- 
ada, bai^e ball la to the United Blales. In a word, It Is 
our national game. To an equal degree it Istlieniost 
popular game in all our colleges and inelilutlona of 
learnUiR- It has been found that some form of exercise 
is iiecettaiy to enliven the sedentary life of students, 
and base- ball bas been found the most acceptable. Is is 
the readiest and best nietbsd of keeping alive that iu- 
teresC In athletics, by nieuneof which alone we can hope 
to gain our much-longed-for gym nobiuni. It is also 
of tbe best means of iuiplantlng that love for oi 
alma maUr which cbould dlt'ilngulsb our alumni. One 
of the first Ililngu a graduate of an £a)<teru college 
tpeak of is his college club nod boat-crew. We art 
barred from the latter form of exercise by llie paucity 
of nature's gifts to us, and should Iherefore do as tbe 
good servant (lid, — make the most of what we have. 

It is unfortunate that for several years we have had 
nines that certainly did not do credit to our University. 
This has given rise to a feeling that it is Impossible to 
organize a good nine, and b-ko to a general apathy for 
baseball inlerests. Can any one give a well-founded 
reaeon why we should not have the finest college nine 
in Die West? We probably have more students here 
than any other college or university in the country. Of 
course numbers do not make a gcod nine, but on ac- 
count of our numbers we have more men to pick from. 
This year happens to be one In which many ball 
players have Joined the University. From these a good 
nine ean be picked. 

Bince the days of Bhsa the University nine has been 
tbe weakest behind tbe bat. Poor players, or worse 
still, hired ones have tried to fill this Important posi- 
tion. Here our nine is no longer weak. This position 
will be filled by a player who will give entire satisfac- 

Ten men are practicing dally at the gymnasium 
down town, and from these and others it la thought 
that a nine can be chosen that will do credit to our Uni- 
versity. It will certainly be a strong nine physically. 
Tbcir height will average nearly six feet, and weight 
ItH) pounds. But there is no doubt that there are as good 
and perhapo better men among us. To all these the 

mansgere of the gymnasium say, "come." There Is 
lime for all to practice who will. Preliminary work 
will count largely In selecting the nine, and those who 
wish to Join it should practice dully. 

The doctrine of evolution will be rigidly adhered to 
In so far as It relates to tbe survival of tbe fittest. The 
best playerwiii take the place for which he is beet quali- 
fied. No partiality whatever will be shown. Some 
money has t>een raised for buying suits, fitting up 
grounds, etc., and same must still be raised. It is the 
duty of every student to attend every entertainment 
given for this purpose, and thus encourage the nine by 
their presence and purse. They have been working 
against obstacles enough already, and should in the fu- 
ture meet with nothing but eucouragenieiit from the 
students. Then when visiting nines play here the 
games must be liberally patronized. It costs considera- 
ble to keep a nine going, and nine or ten men cannot 
bear all tbe expense. 

Tbe Wenlern Cottle League is In good condition, 
and there will be games well worth seeing when the 
other college clubs come here. The Detroit League 
nine will be here about the middle of April to open the 
season. The attendance at this game should be suffi- 
cient to set the nine on a firm footing. 

The grounds on the campus and in the fair grounds 
are to be leveled down and made over into good ball 
fields. Every thing will be done by tbe nine that is 
possible, and IC only remains for the rest of the students 
to contribute their mite by attending the game.

It was a bright morning in June. The earth was 
wet with tears at the long absence of tbe sun, but was 
drying ber face and wreathing herself In smiles under 
his burning kisses. The birds were chirping In the tree- 
tops, and the woods were alive with multifarious life 
and sounds, and the air was redolent with a thousand 
perfumes. Everything was so bright and Joyous, tlie 
atmosphere so iulozicutlng, all creatures so blUheaome, 
that tbe veriest misanthrope must have loveii tbe wbole 
world. Alonzo de Smith was not a misantrope. He 
was a well built young fellow of twenty, witli light 
hair and blue eyes. His naturally ruddy complexion 
bad been burnt by the sun till he was as brown as tbe 
conventional berry. Now Alonzo was in love with a 
pretty maiden, and had got to tbe point where he could 
think of nothing save bis fair enchantress. He was her 
willing slave in everything. The eveulug before she 
had said that she was very fond of wild flowers. That 
not all she said by any means. It Is unnecessary to 
parade their confidential conversation here. But It 
ough to know that the fact that the mistress of bis 
affections liked wild flowers brought the enamored youth 
tbe woods this morning.

As he WM ntrolllnj hither and thither catling the

"Good mnrninK," said Alonzode Smith, In a merry 
voice, for he felt verry happy thia morning. Aa he re- 
ceived no response, he walked towards the man aod re- 
peated his salutntioD. Btlll no answer. Alas! poor 
Alonzo, it had been better for thee to have remained at 
the feet of tliy aweet-heart than to have ventured forth 
alone on tbla ill-atarred day. 

At length the man loolced up and aaked, "Have 
you a telescope In your pocket? " 

" No," replied Alonzo. " Why do you agli ? " 

" Becaune I wanted to amash It. Teleacopea as (hey 
are now made are worthleaa. It la futile for man to 
attempt to compete with nature. Instead of glaaaleneea, 
what la needed, is crystal line lenaee from the human 
eye. As soitn as I get a thousand eyea about the aise of 
' yours, I am going to the land of the Cyclops. By the 
way, you have very bright eyea," added the man, sel^ 
Ing Alonzo by the arm. 

" What do you intend to do with all these eyes 7 
asked Alonzo hastily, wishing to divert attention from 

" Hake a teleacope with which one can read ad< 
tiaementa on the fencea In the moon. Look up at : 
young man; I want to see your eyes. Yea, your left 
one will do very well." 

With a sinking of the heart, Alonzo for the first 
Ume recognized the man's clothes as the same be 
seen in a mad-house in a neighboring city, and felt that 
the man was not jesting aa he had supposed. His blood 
ran cold, and he turned to fl^y. But with a horrific 
howl and at a single twund the maniac waa upon him and 
bore him to the earth. 

" I have need of your left eye," hlaaed the mad- 
man. " I ahall take you to my work-ahop in the sun ; 
but (trst you mu^t have your throat cut to travel there

March is a very funny month. It is as treacherous 
aaa wild Modoc and as deceitful aa a bank director. 
Probably there la more talk ai>out the weather of tbla 
month than of all the othera put t(%ether, except be- 
tween baahful lovers and new acquaintances, who at all 
aeasons dive Into thia topic with indefatigable ardor. 
Some may object to the adjective funny. Such look at 
the subject from a personal point of view. They do not 
appreciate tbe Joke when their brightly polished slioea 
are spattered with March mud on their way to see their 

t>e8t girl. But old March must enjoy their fretting and 
fuming and cursing Immensely, Just as any practical 
Joker does, when his victim gives unmistakable evi- 
dence that his Joke has taken effect. Yea, Murch is as 
lUcetioua aa the small boy that crooks pins and alings 
beans. Both March and the small boy are wita, but we 
are too mean-spirited to see It. 

March Is treacherous. Ifbecomealikearoarlngllon, 
he pounces upon ua when our winter clothing is hang- 
lug on by the last button, our rubbers loat, and our 
shoes worn out. You cannot bluff blmoff. And if 
you do not procure a new umbrella, this dictatorial 
monarch will give you trouble during his constant rain 
of thirty-one daya. If he comes like a gentle lamb, 
beware I Be very wary. His beaming glances will 
make the young man's fancy llghfiy turu to thoughts 
of hug. To appear attractive In the eyea of his Dul- 
clnea, the gay cavalier will don a gorgeous robin suit. 
Then It will rain, sDOW, hail, aleet, and be slippery, 
slushy, and sloppy. The on ly safe policy is entirely to 
disregard bis allurements, and then he will have no 
opportunity to practice hisjokea. Wear old clothea and 
do not shine your shoes. ' 

Much has been written about March. There la a 
touching Innovation to bim, of which the first line 

" Mnrch, marah, march, mnrata. march Bwar." 

The Interpretation of the line aeem^ dubious. There 
are many poasible constructions, but these two seem the 
most likely : 

" March, MArcti. March, MHrcb.— march airay," 
by which rendering March is called upon four times 
and asked to go away once. The other Is : 

' March,— march, raarcb, mnrch. march away." 

This last Interpretation has always struck ua the more 
favorably. It seems to us tbe more reasonable that wh eo 
we are intimating to a person that his presence is no 
longer necesssary or desirable, that the streaa would fall 
upon the invitation to go, rather tlian upon the name uf 
the invited. It even aeem* to us that no mention of 
names need be made at all, that If we wanted any one 
to go away as bad aa did the writer of the diaputed line, 
we uould indicate with our finger or toe tbe person 
meant and the direction of his motion. If we remem- 
ber correctly, the Autocrat, under somewhat similar 
circumstances, uses no names, but aimplysays: " De- 
part, evade, erump, excede, be off !" And Dr. Holmea 
is a man of taste. 

March takes Ita name from the God of War. This 
accounts for its belligerent disposition. Wars are waged 
frequently on account of marches.— at least, we think 

rememberofreaillitg something about It In English 

CiBsar was also killed iu March. If the aaaassina 
had waited till he had mounted a throne, the priest in - 
Shakspeare's play could have exclaimed — 
" Bewari lUe resle— Ides ol Harali I"

AT ItiHt, after an abaence of nearly two years, we have 
our President back again. Bucfa long coullnued 
abHe lice of tlie bead of an Institution like this might be 
expected to check or retard He jirogrcBS. It was feared 
by Bonie at tbe time of President Angell's departure 
that Bucb tt result might follow. A great change had 
been recently made In the system of study, which was 
still regarded as an experlmeot of somewhat doubtful 
success, and there were other causes for anxiety. But 
no 111 resulls have followed, and the prosperous advance 
of the University has been unimpeded. The President's 
return makes tbls a fit occasion to review our recent 

In tbe way of gifts from alumni and other private 
friends of the University we are but little richer. Our 
gymnasium fund bus been thus somewhat augmented, 
and several additions, notably those by Mr. Parsons and 
Mr. Hegeler, have been made to the library, but com- 
pared with the fiequent munificent gifts made to some 
small colleges further east, these are aimoet Infiniteol- 

But to make up In part for this, our I^tslature has 
been exceptionally generous; a forty thousand dollar 
museum, the homoeopathic hospital, the steam-heating 
building, the mechanical engineering building, and the 
large addition to the laboratory are the completed mon- 
uments of their lilierality, while tbe foundations are 
now laying for a new library building, which will \x, 
when completed, somewhat proportioned to our needs. 
This Is not a bad showing for two years' growth. 

It Is true that our gymnasium Is still a caftle in the 
air — and that our library equipment will i>e by no means 
proportionate to the new library building, but we have 
the assurance of President Angell that the last defect 

shall be remedied, and for the other we have at least 
faith, which Is the " substance of things hoped for." 

The number of students has Increased from 1,300 to 
over 1,500 in the past three years, though the standard 
for admiasiou to the professional schools has been stead- 
ily raised. 

But our most gratifying progreee Is pot in the mate- 
rial, tangible increase of piled up briek and mortar, nor 
In the rapidly swelling list of students, but In the de- 
velopment of true university spirit and methods, to 
which more than anything else It Is due that the absence 
of our President has been marked by so little disturb- 
ance. Tills cliange, little noticed among the students, 
except by those whose connection with the Uutveralty 
Is near its end, t>ecome9. In one phase, very evident on 
comparison of this semester's announcement with one 
of two or three years ago. Tlie number of elective 
courses added is very noticeable, but still more so is the 
change in metliods and thoroughncHS of liistrucllon ; a 
far greater proportion of courses otTered conslett of lect- 
ures, anil a far greater number of advanced and special 
courses are given, for instance, tbe mathematical read- 
ing and the pliilosophlcal semluary. 

The same change is even more apparent among tbe 
studenia. It is iarKely due to the introduction upon the 
entry of the present senior ctaw of tbe elective system. 
Tbls has not been received with unmixed favor by the 
students, for it la destroying class spirit, and with class 
spirit goes much that used to make college life pleasant. 
But with class spirit also goes much that Is childish and 
foolish. There Is little cause to mourn the loss of that 
which reeultA In such performances aa those of late at 
Princeton, Cornell, and Yale, There is ample reason 
for commending that which has given a graver, manlier 
tone to College life and has made It tbe complaint of our 
faculty that the students want to take too much rather 
than too little work. Not that a tendency to hurry Is a 
good one, or that it should not be as It is, restrained, but 
that a disposition to work, even too hard, Is a healthy 
one in any t>ody of students. Illustrative of our pro- 
gress In this direction is the fact that the average num- 
of books weelcly drawn from the general library has in- 
creased from 1,101 in '77-8, the last year of tlie non-eieo- 
tive system, to 1,050 In the first semester of the present 
year, an increase entirely disproportionate to that in the 
number of studeuts. This results in great part from in- 
creased original investigation, consequent upon theadop- 
tion of the semluarv plan in uianv advanced courses. 

To sum all up we have more buildings and better 
appliances, more students, higiier and broader instruc- 
tion, and more of it, and belter than all, we work more 
independently, more earnestly, and more thoroughly. 
We venture tii say that while some institutions of learn- 
ing have in tlie past few years made greater additions 
to their funds and fucillllea of Instruction, none can 
show greater progress in the true educational spirit than 
can this University.

It seems, from the Harvard Herald, of Feb. ITIh. that there Is 
a regularoorrespondenl to that paper from Ann Arbor. The prao- 
tloe of publishing letters from dltrerenl oolleges Is a commendable 
one, and the Herald gl ves quite a large space to the U. of M. letter. 
Theoorrespondenl, however, Is a little "off." when he speaks of 
the "balmy weather of the last few weeks" and the priictlcliig 
done on the campus Coc positions on the iCugby Team. The Advo- 
cate Is advocating the publication of a book of Harvard songs, 
similar to that of Yale. Such a book would not come amiss here. 

Again hasaJuailoe of the Supreme Court been appointed, and 
Michigan been overlooked. Although we would be ekceedtugly 
sorry to loss Judge Cooley, still we think that bis eminent ability 
should have been recognized. The Washington Post lately said 
that no flttar appointments could be made than those of Judges 
Cooley and Qray. The same paper had the following at the head 
of Its editorial columns: " For Associate Justice of the Supreme 
Court, Thomas H. Cooley, of Michigan." We clip the following 
from the N.Y. Tribune;

During the past month n number of difficulties have arisen tie-

wish to be understood as defending the»e practices, we do protest 
strongly against the trealmeut which college sludenle In general 
are receiving at the hands of the public prewi of the counlry. A

Inrgeand reputable papers of the cities are In no belter bnslness.

"Sir Francis Bacon," by T. Fowler, ProFeasor of Logic In tbe

tbe nature oT bis philosophical opinions generally, lu a form In- 
telligible and luteresllng to readers who have no technical ac- 
qunlQtance witb logic or philosophy." As will be noticed by 
what Is quoted ftoro tbe prefkce. the author does not aim In write 
tbe life of Bacon. However, the opening chapter Is devoted to a 
brief sketch of his career, and Is almost conllned to a stutemenc 
of Aicla. He who seeks to obtain an explanation of the political 
and Judicial conduct of the great plilloaoplier muat have recourse 
to other sources, fur the author expressly dlsclalinii any attempt 
to elucidate tbe disputed ptusagee of Baoou's life. The reader's 
attention Is next called to Bacon's works, a general review of bis 
literary labors beinggtven. The minor and unflnlshed writing* 
are only called Into Importance when some Interesting Incident Is 
ooanecled with iheni. Bauon's survey of the sciences, his refonn 
of sulentlflc methods in two parts, his pblloeophlCHl and religious 
opinions, and bis Influence on philosophy and ecience. are then 
treated In an instructive and masterly manner. The philosopher

President Angell'B leeturu on China, Thuraday 
evening, Marcii Itth, at University Halt, was attended 
by un unuBUHlly fine audience, though the weather was 
very diaagreeable. The lecture was an hour and forty 
minutes long, beginning at twenty minutes past eight, 
which waa rather late, by-tiie-way. President Angell, 
in beginning, alluded to our ideax of the Chinese, ac- 
cording to which they are a people Interesting to us 
chiefly because, like their geographical situation, their 
cuMtonis are antipodal to ours in numberless queer in- 
stances. After citing several humorous examples ot 
this, he laid before the minds of his liearers, in a few 
Impressive ami eloquent sentences, theactunl mugnitude 
and age and signiflcunce of whut is implied in tlie term, 
the Chinese Empire. He then touched upon the na- 
tion's histury, and spoke of the impossibility of any 
foreigner's gaining, even by many years of study, a com- 
plete mastery of the peculiarities of the Chinese lan- 
guage, or Chinese character. President Angell then 
said, " I shall talk as though I were sitting among you 
and you were asking the questions I am about to an- 
swer." He credited the Chinaman witli a raild type of 
Industry, said he was not accustomed to any sabbath, 
and spoke very entertainingly of Chinese roads and 
vehicles, and the venerable, but also primitive, canal 
system that never employs locks. The qualities t« be 
expected la a celestial servant were then enumerated, 
and Chinese mercliants, foreign trade, and banking 
were briefly described. Art, and invention are not fos- 
tered In China, it was remarked; social life, faabiluai 
exclusivenees, and polygamy, were discussed, as they \ 
are now found. The neglect of cleanliness in cities was 
eaid to be Indescribable. Dishonesty lu the civil service 

and the Incompetency of army and navy received due 
comment, as did the cheapness of life in the eyes of both 
government and people. It was suggested that many 
instances of gross neglect shown toward the dead or 
dying may be caused by fear of punishment, should an 
accuser charge murder upon him who acted the good 
Samaritan, for Cliinese law presumes crime In such a 
case. The cliaracter of courts and procedure in them 
received meation, and also the executive branch of the 
government, Including the emperor. Feudalism was 
said still to exist in many cities. The speaker de-writied 
the system of education carefully, and spoke of the 
remarkable memory It developed, and also of the dense 
Ignorance of all matters of modern Interest ia which it 
left those who adhere to It. Information lu geography, 
chemistry, astronomy and on the events of muuicipal, 
national or even world wide importanoe is very meager 
if it is possossed atall by even cultured Chinamen. All 
innovations are disliked— foreigners are but grudgingly 
tolerated, and very few can be made to believe the sum 
(if all wisdom is not stored in the classic poems and die* 
sertatinns they received from their ancestors. While 
such excessive conservatism prevails, there is no hope 
for reform In China, and the President stated In clos- 
ing, that a foreign war might necessitate a change in 
their opinions, but the principle hope for their future is 
that Christianity may be generally accepted among 
them. The lecture was occasionally humorous and 
exceedlnly entertaining throughout. President Angell 
spiike, as he always does, without notes, delilierately, dis- 
tinctly and with peculiargrace of language and manner. 
There may have been a feeling of disappointment among 
some who expected to hear a studiously prepared orato- 
rical efTort, and the few chances Ann Arbor affords for 
hearing the best oratory lend strongly to excuse them ; 
but even they must adinit that the style of this lecture 
was far more appropriate to the occasion. However, It 
may be hoped the Lecture Association will provide more 
speakers next season tiiun It has this. The thanks of 
the University are due our President for the pleasure of 
the lecture and the material increase It wlU give to the > 
gymnasium fund. .. - . - - - (^-^

dramsH, Ib'at crowd llie elage itiid are n v'a»lt; <>r time 
and money ; nay more, as lliey are prei-enled to the puli- 
lic they are positively injurious. The great quef^tiontt 
with nionagerit, adore and actresses, seems to be how 
low can a dreea be cut In one dirccUoti and liow high in 
another and ellll be couu ten aimed by the public? How 
low can the language and thoughts descend and not be 
poBitlveiy disgusting? And liow high can the thought 
be elevated and give an appearance of rcfpeclability to 
& play, and yet not be bo lofty as to be above liie crowd 
of vulgar aiimirers of thi>t depraved drama? It is re- 
freshing nowadays to find a play on the American btage 
that we can call good. While we do not claim that 
Hazel Kirke will take iU place in the Itrst rank of 
dramas, it Is good. The crowded house two weeks ago, 
proved that the public taste has not been entirely 
vitiated, that if goodplayuare given in Ann Arbor they 
will be petriinlzed by the better elates of people. The 
play has nothing at whicli the most modest need blush. 
It haa interest throughout; there la pathos and humor 
and some approaches to the tragic in the piece. The 
plot 1b not a rehash of the everlasting French novel. It 
deals with a queiition prominent in English society 
whether marriage should be settled by parenta, the 
children willing or no. It shows the pain and trouble 
that have so often occurred from this common practice 
In the old English society. There isampteopportunity ■ 
for good acting. The part of Dunstan admits It, and 
the part was well taken. The comic part of Plttacus 
and Dolly is fnnny and not vulgar, and Plttacus was 
good. Though the heroine's part might have been 
acted belter, yet taken with the fine acting of Dunstan 
and Plttacus, the good support genei-ally, the plot, the 
tone of the piece, the play rank^ as good. 

somewhat limited knowleiige of the Celestial characters 
wc thought the poem hud liigh merit, but tiie L-ditor 
really hai, the assurance to critidiie It. On another leaf 
were verses telling of ttie seven deadly sins of Fresh- 
men. Around the margin were comical flgurea repre- 
senting tlie subjects of the stanais. Still another told 
of the four atjett of the student. This, too, had side 
pictures of no solemn ai-pect, and there were also at the 
head und foot of this page characteristic class repre- 
sentatives. Elsewhere in this cuilous manuscript was 
to be seeti a picture dedicated to the welcoming of our 
President. The article underneath begins willi a huge 
letter upon which are ingenious devices and Chinese 
letters. Also the head and tail drawings for the work 
are of a peculiar and Ingenious design. But this Is not 
all we discovered, und as we desire to let our patrons 
know all about this deep-laid plot, we will not hold It 
back that there are also a few solid articles, as for In- 
stance a discussion pro and eon secret societies, From 
the tenor of these essays one would conclude that the 
ciue pro college fraternities was by u society uiun and the 
one con by an Independent. No sooner had we exam- 
ined all these things, than the aforesaid manager came 
tearing back and asked If we had seen some old papers 
which be had lost. We pointed to those on the floor, 
and he, perceiving they were there and undisturbed, 
gladly snatched them up and departed. Now under 
these circumstances the suspicion entered our mind that 
perhaps this might be the copy for the Oracle, whlcli we 
hear Is to appear In a week or so. But then all prece- 
dent is BO against having anything that Is new, unique 
and original in the sophomore publlcJitiou, that it is 
hard for us to believe that this is designed for that pur- 
pose. However, we would advise our readers tu keep 
on the lookout for that publication, and see whether or 
not our conjectures are correct. 

The other evening we received a call froni the man- 
ager of the Oracle of '84, and during his visit some pa- 
pers happened to fall out of his pocket. After a little 
chat he retired, and of course our curiosity drove us to 
a perusal of the myslerious-lookUig package. It seemed 
to be copy arranged for the printer, and our suspicions 
were confirmed when we beheld the proof of one pict- 
ure, evidently taken by the photo- engraving process. 
It seemed to be a cartoon of a medley of grinds on col- 
lege affairs, and in the centre tliere actually was a mill 
at which a man with a mortar-board was diligently 
grinding. The only clue to who this was, or what it 
was, was tiie expression in one corner, " W. F. Word." 
Tills word seemed to be on all the other pictures as well. 
Turning over the other leaves we struck a regular old- 
fashioned Chinese poem In all its glory of twenty-five 
jointed hieroglyphics. From certain ear-marks we con- 
clude this Is an ode written by our President upon his 
return from the other side of the globe. From our 

For a long time a branch postotUce or mail delivery 
upon ytate street has been desired by many persons liv- 
ing near tlie University, and especially by the studeuta. 
Mr. T. C. Clayton, a mefnber of the Literary Depart- 
ment, has ascertained by correspondence with the Pii!-l- 
oflSce Department, that a plan for securing such delivery 
is practicable, und he proposes to put It In practice. He 
I will occupy the brick building known as the Smith 
Block, with Sheehun's bookstore. Mail will be carried 
to and from the postofUce us often as there is a general 
make up or distribution, now three times a day. Those 
desiring to get their mail through him will give him a 
written order on the postmaster for It. He proposes to 
charge from twenty-five to fifty cents a quarter, accord- 
ing to the mode of delivery desired. No change need 
be made In the address of mail, as the written order will 
cover that. It is, of course, to be understood, that par- 
ties who order their mail delivered on State streets must 
expect to get it there all tile time, und not call at both 
oftiees, as it suita their convenience. The postofflce Ihv

Tlie ineonvenieuce of tramping down town to niali or 
reueivB a letter, no matter what the weather miglit be, 
has long been felt by many of tlie students. We have 
no doubt, therefore, that Mr. Olayton's enterprise will 
obtain from thera a deeerred and hearty support. 

Although of late the Bi>ard of Directors nf the Ath- 
lellc Association have shown considerable energy, 
activity and entimsiasm In their work, stilt in one par- 
ticular we are obliged to criticise and take exception to 
the wisdom of their course. We refer to the late Rossi 
excursion to Detroit. Perliap^ even now the directors 
would prefer to keep the true Inwardness of their actions 
a secret, but we, feeling sure tbat such actions will in 
the end resulttotbe disadvantage of the Association and 
its aims, propose to give it an airing. We do not ques- 
tion the riglit of the b[>arJ to sell the u^e of their name 
for twenty-five dollars or even for five, but it is the pol- 
icy of the action, to which we take exception. Take, 
fur example, the course pursued In this Instance. The 
fact of the excursion was brouglit to the notice of the 
students In tlie usual way, by notice on the bulletin 
boards. The enterprise of the board was favorably com- 
mented upon by the students, and the general impres- 
sion was that it oughtiobeaupported. Then the several 
members of the board were selling the tiuketa, probably 
hired by the original contractor twenty -five dollars, and 
urging students to purchase tickets In order in help the 
Association. Now, when thn appeal to the students Is 
made it liaa always been answered, but as soon as it Is 
found that in soma case^ It Is made in order to benefit a 
private enterprise, no longer can It be hoped or expected 
that they will respond to these calls. Tney will no 
longer be able to determine wiiether or not It is a real 
Inma fide enterprise of the Athletic Association, when 
for a mere pittance the board can be induced to sell the 
use of the name of the association and deceive its con- 
stituency. If there Is any money in these undertakings 
let us reap the entire baneHt or leave tliem entirely 
alone. These few words are intended merely tut a warn- 
ing to the board of the evil consequences of such actions, 
and if they will only heed this warning, all will be well, 
but if on tlie other hand theyclioose ratlier ti disregard 
these words of admonition, they will find the results to 
be disastrous in the future. 

Last evening the Athletic Association held a tour- 
nament In tlie Opera House, for the purpoie of giving 
the students of the Law Djpirtmiiut a chance to win I 

some of the prizes. At 0:40 the start was made 011 the 
ten-mile walk. There were four entries, but all dropped 
out but oae, Mr. F. L. Thomas, lit., of '84, who com- 
pleted the ten miles In 9,1} minutes, making the last 
mile in elglit minutes. At 8:15 tlie side-hold wrestle was 
called. Tliere were tliree contestants, Messrs. Allstnn, 
T.Mld, and J. C. MsLiu,'hlln. Mr. Allstoo received 
two falls on Mr. Tod I, hut was In turn vanquished by 
Mr. MiiLlUghlin. The one mile walk was won by Mr. 
G. C. McCrone, in seven minutes and flfty-flve seconds. 
Mr. E. O. Mauritznn was his opponent, and bnth gen- 
tlemen did some very fine walking. The heavy weight 
boxing, although theoretically a contest, was practically 
little better than an exhibition of the skill of Messrs. 
Townsend, lit., '85, and Davis, law, '83. The prize was 
won by Mr. Davis in two rounds. Mr. Word and Mr. 
Newland entered for tlie light weight boxing. Theoon- 
tMt exiiibited very little skill, but a great amount of 
hard hitting. It was won by Mr. Word In three rounds. 
The contest on the horizontal bar was won by Mr. 
Kuecliler over Malion and Otcutt. Mr. Kuecbler did 
some very fine work on the bar, notably his "giant 
swing" forwards and backwards. The collar and elbow 
wrestle was won by Mr. Leland, quite to the surprise of 
the audience who did not suppose him able to overcome 
the greater size and weight of his opponent, Mr. B S. 
Beunetl. Tlie most interesting features of the tourna- 
ment were the Indian club swinging and fencing. 
Messrs. KastI, Olcutt and Packard entered for the first 
contest, and all three of them showed great skill in 
handling the clubs. Mr. Olcutt's swinging was excep- 
tionally fine and called forth repeated rounds of applause. 
He was awarded the prize. In fencing there was no 
contest, but simply an exhibition by Messrs. Mack and 
Miller. Notwithstanding there was no contest, the ex- 
hibition was watched with fully as great interest as any 
of the contests of the evening. Both gentlemen 
show that they were masters of the art, and 
manipulated the foils with extraordinary skill. 
Tiieyareto be congratulated upon the result of their 
practice. Tiie tournament was concluded by thestand- 
Ing high jump which was won by Mr. Ricketts, over 

Brodle and Kuecbler. Mr. Ricfcetta score was 4 ft. 
5j in. The "Senior Olee Club" discoursed, sweet music 
for the edification of the audience and were heartily 
appreciated. The audience throughout the evening 
showed considerable enthusiasm over all the perfor- 

ces. The only thing that can be complained of was 
thesmail number present. The house was large enough 
pay expenses, but tliatwasall. Perhaps some may 
think that there should then be no complaint; but It Is 
not very encouraging to the directors of the association 
to get up these tournaments, and have no more Interest 

rn by the students than was manifested last uigUt, 
As there was nothing going on to draw the students 
away, we can explain the small size of the audience 
only by the supposition that they took no interest lu the

Montalgue's pen 1b that or & geottenian of leisure. 
Highly cultured, rich, but with little tutite for the activ- 
ity of public; life, be Ib content to sit in his study, com- 
mune with his books, and write down fals thoughts for 
the world to read. Apart from the world, he spent hie 
time In overseeing his estate, following hie bounds, and 
enjoying his library. It seems strange that such a pen 
under such singularly favorable clrcumslaucee did not 
produce eometbing with more unity tban his rambling 
sketches present. But nothing was so repulsive to him 
as a work Involving method and perseverance, and to 
call litm a " man of letters " was to louch him in a. ten- 
der spot. Writing was merely bis pastime, and his only 
other incentive was a most peculiar desire to " discover 
himself to the public," which takes the form of an 
almost constant reference to liimsetf— a vanity easily 
pardonable. "All the world knows me in my book, 
and my book In nie." Bo full of contradictious that his 

lnconsi!>tency has become proverbial ; stepping from the 
profoundest reasoning to almost child-like fault confess- 
ing; he rumbles on about wlialever happens to be upper- 
most in liis mind, and rarely writing more than a dozen 
pages without drifting entirely from his original sub- 

But all Ills oddities only add to the fasclnatitm of bis 
originality of thought. He paints his conceptions In 
strong and deep colors, regardless of the havoc which 
the contrast may make with their surroundlogs. The 
deepest thinkers of the Nineteenth Century find them- 
selves repeatlngorenlargiiiK the ideas of the man almost 
lost to view in the gloom of the Middle Ages, and at the 
same time are attracted by his freshness and the ingen- 
uousiiess with which he admits alt humanity Into bis 

His Essay on Education, the outgrowth of a conver- 
sation with the Countess of Ourson concerning the 
future of ber young son, Is an admirable example ex 
quo discere omnee. He apparently sits down and pens 
her a letter on the subject, outlining his conception of a 
perfect education, regardless of practicability and aim- 
ing at the highest mental attainments In a sound body. 
His idea Is to produce the highest results in the most 
fertile soil and under the most favorable clrcumstauces. 
But his plan would undoubtedly meet several obstacles 
in the way of Its adoption Into the general systems of 
to-day. The fact that the average number of instruct- 
ors per student might reach say fifteen or twenty would 
undoubtedly be Inconvenient, and the volumes neces- 
sary for Ills curriculum of study could hardly l>e com- 
plete even In the admirable library furnished by a pro- 
fusely generous Legislature. But Montaigne is educat- 
ing " one from the beautiful and good," and the poor 

py none of his attention— In fact he prefers (o have 

the rabble somewhat ignorant that the ascendency of 

ills pupil over them may be the more complete. They 

■e hardly more than objects of interest to him ; he 

looks on them as from a window upon the hurrying 

stream in the street below, with an idle curiosity, but 

with no desire to mingle with the Jostling crowd." The 

perlority of his pupil over them must be as complete 

that of Achilles over the thousands fleeing before his 


At the outset our author discourages all attempis on 

ncapable, or at least a wiltful and obstinate, student. 
He advises the binding out, or even choking, of such an 
natural monstrosity. Having found his " susceptible 
subject," the next and all-important step is the choice 
of the Instructor, or i>erhap9 better, Aead' instructor, — 
the Fldus Achates, upon whose wisdom and ability 
Vcrytblng depends. He must have the perfect educa- 
tion which is the aim of the pupil ; but having acquired 
ills Achillean greatness, Instead of chasing the mob 

nd In Ills chariot, lie must devote his time, energy 
and every thought to the production of a like e 

The Chronicle. 


" The man," aaye Montaigne, " who undertakes the 
direction or a growing mind must be a keen Judge of 
human nature; hia bead had better be elegant tlian 
learned; he must know Just how fur to lead the pupU 
and how far to let hliii go by Iiimse IT,— sometimes the 
pupil, sometimes he, speaking Hrst. He must not do 
too much of the work himself; original investigation is 
even better than information, and he can no more teach 
the pupil without making him work than he can teach 
us to dance without our making the steps." All times 
and all places must aflTurd opportunity for study, nor 
• must any subject be retained long enough to become 
monotonous; education should he like the steps in an 
Art gallery— not tedious, because of its diversity. No 
time must be wasted on such idiotic arts as Bbetoric 
and Uompoaltlon ; " let tliose be left for those who make 
their living by them. But Philosophy, wholesome and 
ever cheerful, must be the basin of all learning." 

As ufiVctlon Is prone to blind parents to the real wel- 
bre of their children, it Is far better that the boy should 
be removed from their care entirely and placed under 
the control of the tutor, whose authority would other- 
wise be dulled by the self-lniporlance of the young 
" heir." Let the indulges of liome be removed from 
him ; let him miugle with men and buft^t the realities 
of life. " VUamque in dio et trepidU agat in rebu»." 

His admonitions to the student are many. Hesliould 
be silent as 61 r as possible, and modest, and listen to the 
' ideas of others rather than express his own. Let him 
recognize truth wherever Le flnda it, and never argue 
on the side he thinks \a wrong; let him get the essence 
of what he learns, and put It Into a hundred different 
shapes; nothing must be taken on the authority of 
other, — after he bus |>assed bis Judgment on it, it la as 
much his as the author's — " the bees cull their sweets 
n«m every flower, but make from it their honey, which 
Is entirely peculiar to themselves." Learning by heart 
Is as harmful as origlniil Investigation Is benefldal. 
" The man who learni by heart easily parades it, but 
the 'man of the long robe' shows bis worth by noble 
alliaDoee and titles." The advantage of learning is to 
make our understanding clear and knowledge our own 
without fumbling over the leaves of our l>ook. Let him ! 
learn things, not words. If he knows things, words' 
will follow ibougb he " drag them after bim ; " a dumb 
man can express his tiioughts by signs. " Let bim bea ! 
loyal subject to his prince, afl'ectionate to his person, and , 
atout in his quarrel ; let htm avoid fuiae syllogism, and 
above alll avoid that most puerile and pedantic of errors, | 
trying to appear more learned than be is." The value i 
of Buch precepts hoe not been diminished by the wear 
and tear of three centuries. 

Our author undoubtedly took his idea from the 
" Qargantua " of Rabelais. Like him, our student is to 
be wakened and lulled to sleep by low music ; liis exer- 
cises are preacribed, his games enumerated. Rut In the 

mldi^t of his admonitions our author Indulges in his 
customary "vagrancy;" his vanity gets the upper 
iiapd, and he flniiihea the es^ay with a description of 
his own youth, comparing his o#n education with his 
Ideal, and modestly offerln; himself as a grand illustra- 
tion. With the utmost complacency he tumi from In- 
junctions of humility to the narration of his exploits as 
a scholar In the College of Qulenne. 

The essay, with little value as a whole. Is a monu- 
ment to Montaigne's clear and logical judgment, even 
wlien applied to trivial things. In style and conoiae- 
ness of expression also It sltowa a purity and force wor- 
thy of Anglo-Saxon. His bold um of figure* la well 
illuBtraled by hla closing remark: " There is nothing 
like alluring the appetite and aSictlon ; otherwise you 
make nothing hut so many asses laden with books, and 
by virtue of the ioah give them their pocket full of 
money to keep ; whereas, to do well, you should not 
only lodge it with them, but make them espouse it." 

Id spite of hla eccentricity. In spite of his nea- 
paganism, no one can read Montaigne without feeling 
assured that if his date could be transferred from the 
Bfteenth to the nineteenth century his name would 
rank with the Mullen and Speusers of to-day. 


It may tte useless to speak to any of you of leisure 
houra, for probably none of you have any. Every mo- 
ment is taken up with study, and you have only time 
to turn from the contemplation of the beauties of Ol- 
ney's literature to wander for a while with Bracbet, or 
to take a abort plunge Into the depths of Quintlllan. 
Though this may be the fact, it ts nevertheless true that 
it ought not to be the fact ; for every one, big or little, 
young or old, rich or poor, should have some hours every 
day which he feels that he owes t^ no man ; they should 
be all Ills own to be employed as he pleases, and while 
they last he should be as free as the air be breathes. 

It Is a great fault that here In America, and espe- 
cially in that portion called Ann Arbor, there are few 
such hours. Seemingly, It is not our fault ; there are 
none to be liad ; fur when In the great portioning our 
time was allotted to us, these leisure hours were scat- 
tered at great intervals and lu little groups, so that only

amusenientii Is the great index of character. 

Yet, as is usual, this best way ts the hardett to pur- 
sue ; our mental vision is apt lo be clouded by prejudtce, 
and In fact there ale many vbo are utterly unfit, on ac- 
count of their narrow-mlndednesii, to ufe Ibis means 
Jually; for, in the first place, they are apt to think that 
every moment that ia not »penl In digging at something 
as hard as flint-^toiie is utterly watted ; and if they do 
consent to any flDiUF*mentp, Ihey want to choose them 
themselves for the whole world, and what Ihey choose 
la only one degree removed from work, and is generally 
a thousand times more ditta^teful to the ma?a of man- 
kind than the hardest work could be. Like the old 
Presbyterians, they would makeeven heaven, the place 
where most people hope for perfect rest and enjoyment, 
only a great singing' school, where there is not even the 
proverbial recess, and where the Anly occupation is 
drawlingmllearter mile of Presbyterian hymns through 
your nose ; they cull this the height of bliss. Can such 
people he expected to form any true estimate of a man's 
character l>y the amutements be teeks 7 Let us all be 
thankful that such peoj^le are getting decidedly few in 
numbers; they are learning now that time spent in day 
drtams is not entirely wasted, and that a boy Is not 
necessarily destined for the had because he loves to 
spend hours roaming over the fields or through the 
woods picking flowers to pieces or doing sonielhluf; else 
as seemingly useless. Old folks are getting content to 
let youug people spend their leisure as they wish, so 
long as tbey da nothing positively wrong; they are 
finding that Ihey can't force a person to like something 
entirely distasteful to his whole nature, simply by de- 
nying him leisure for anything else; they are permit- 
ting US tbe£ree choice of ourumui-ements; the rei^pon- 
sthility is on our shoulders, and we must show them 
(but the conclusion Ihey have reached is well founded. 

What to choose Is now the question, and it la one 
that I think It Impossible for any one person or any 
class of persons to antwer. Amusement« must be aa 
varied as Is the nalure of man, and ever since Adam's 
transgresalon enabled us to distinguish good from evil, 
right from wrong, every person has been capable of 
making the decision for himiielf. He may need the 
assistance of others with the knowledge of experience; 
but be should he allowed to take all advice IJor what it is 
worth in bla own mind, and decide for himself, tireat 
care should be taken to bring out all the good qualities 
of a youth, and repress or pluck out entirely the bad; 
develop carefully all that is beautiful in the character; 
let this be tbe work of kind friends; sharpen tbe sensi- 
bilities; make the judgment of good and evil acute, 
remembering that it Is character that forma (he amuse- 
ments, not amusements the cbamcter. Of course mis- 
takes will be made, for there is no rule without excep- 

tions; wild nata will be sown, and as a general thing 
the earlier (his comes the bet(er, for if tvil habits come 
early lliey will be lived Ibrougb, but when (bey conie 
late, when boyhood is passed, they are apt lo cling and 
ruin manhood. It is decision that settles this point; if 
this Is developed as it should be in every youug person, 
wild oats in youth will do no haim, and probably good ; 
tbey will develop that beautiful trait. Charity, and her 
sister, Sympatliy. 

In a word, then, look to the character, and let tbe 
amusements take care of themselves. 



Editors CHKOHICI.E: 

I have noticed within the last year or two numerous 
articles In The CHRONICLE respecting the gymnasium 
and the necessity of having such an institution, but I 
have noticed no article setting forth the dangers In 
gymnauticB. Almost all will admit that exercise is a 
good thing in moderation, but few are aware of the seri- 
ous consequences of over- exercise. Few are aware (hat, 
while lucreaaing the power and endurance of tbelr mus- 
cles, tbey may be lessening the endurance of their 
hearts, or of some other internal organ. 

Some time ago n young man boasted to me of tbe 
dimensions of his forearm, which had been developed 
by the use of Indian clubs. Knowing that tbe heart 
was often injured by too much exercise, I asked him 
about his heart, and was told that he was then taking 
digitalis. He bad also found out that the heart could 
be Injured by over-exerulse, hut he had learned it from 
experience. He had not been told, before starting hla 
exercise, the evil result (bat might follow. There are 
plenty of similar cases — far more than moat people sus- 

Competitive physical exercise Is, If anything, worse 
than mental competition. The evil results of the latter 
are more generally known and more viaible to the eye. 
Every one knows that many a youug persou in endeav- 
oring to stand at the head of bis clubs, to get high 
marks, or to win prises, bos wrecked his health. The

prize WAB won ; health was lost. The tmuble of the 
marking BDd prlxe nyiiteni In that it Incites the ambi- 
tious BtudentB, the book wornis, theatutients that would 
do too much anyway, to do do even more. The unam- 
bitious student, ihe student in whom Indifference has 
BBSumed a chronic form. Is iiidlBTerent to prizes and the 
highest marks, either from bis knowledge that he could 
not get them, were he to try, or from his very nature, 
being Indifferent to tilings in general. 

But to return to the subject. In over-exercise the 
person may not wear the worn-out appearance, but look 
the picture nf health; yet he may uevertlieless have 
overstrained and weakened some internal oi^an by 
competing with others— It may be for prizes, or it may 
be for praises. Any one frequenting gymnasiums will 
notice how the ambitious athlete will strain every nerve, 
or do the most dangerous feats, simply for the satisfac- 
tion of doing something that his fellows cannot do. 
Tlie complete eshaustlou it may cause him does not 
iK>ther his mind. All he Is thinking of, is beating some 
one else. If he is one of a crew rowing a race, snd be- 
comea so tired that he feels as if be should drop from 
sheer eshaustlou, still he must row on; for the winning 
of the race is of vastly more importance than the wel- 
fare of his heart. To tell the truth, the chances are two 
to one that he is unconscious of the injury tliat may be 
done in tills way to his vital organs. I am told that 
some one baa Investigated the after physical history of 
a number of young men who had been noted oarsmen. 
The result of his iuvestlgations was published in one of 
the magazines. I forget the exact result of his labors ; 
but at all events, it was a solemn warning to would-be 
athletes. I am sorry I cannot give the name of the 
author and the magazine. 

It is the exercising after one la tired that does the 
barm. To rest as soon as tired. Is the thing to do. The 
competitor, however, cannot obey this all-important 
rule, for although Nature may say, " Stop and rest, for 
you are tired," Honor says, "On! on! and win the 
goal, let come what may ! " Competition may be the 
life of trade, but it is the death of the competitors in 
athletics. The London Lancet for January has a short 
article on "Gymnastics and Gymnasia," in which the 
author says; "8ome able lecturer should discourse on 
the use and abuse of gymnaHtics and gymnasia. ■ * * 
It would be well, if, before resorting to gymnasia or en- 
gaging in the sporta and exercises carried on In these 
establishmenta, even the seemingly healthy would ask 
their ordinary medical attendants to examine their 
hearts and lungs (and he might have added, kidneys], 
and give precise directions as to what may and what 
may not be attempted by them. Cases are of too fre- 
quent occurrence in which serious physical mischief Is 
done in the pursuit of health, because those who 'feel 
well ' and ' look well ' resort to unadvised exercises. 
' Looking ' and ' seeming ' are very uncertain indlca- 1 

tlons of the state of health. The apparently robust are 

not uncommonly subjects of great weakness. • * • The 
best policy is to avoid putting any part of the system 
to exceptional usei, or subjecting it to unutu^l stress of 
energy without taking the obvious precaution of llrdt 
ascertaining how far the actual state of the organ Isra is 
likely to justify the test of strength and stand the 
flraln." b. j. chandleb. 

Baltihobb, Hd.. March lllh, 1882. 


On glancing over the Palladium a short time ago, 
my attention was drawn forcibly to a fact that, though 
I had been aware of it before, still had not made Itself 
so prominent to my mind. I mean the great falling off 
that there has been in musical organizattoa^ among the 
stuilents within the last few years. In the last Palla- 
dium there was not a single one given, either voaal or 
instrumental, that was composed of students alone. lu 
fact tlie Choral Union, and University Orchestra, with 
the Ann Arbor School of Music, form the sum total as 
given in the Palladium. Even the glee clubs of tbe 
various secret societies have fallen out, and as for any- 
thing like a representative University glee club, that is 
something that has not existed for several years. 

What is the reason of this ? Can it be that among 
the hundreds of students here that there are not enough 
musicians to form a glee club worthy of our Univergity? 
I think that It is through tack of individual energy, 
rather than through any lock of material. A move- 
ment has been made In the right direction by the senior 
class, which has recently formed a glee club for the pur- 
pose of trying to arouse a little more interest in college 
songs. I tfelieve also that something of the same kiud 
has been done In the sophomore class. If each clase 
would make it a point to get together the singers among 
its own numbers, and thus to form a glee club in each 
class, It would he but a short time before college music 
would be as popular here as In other instltutious, and aa 
it used to be here. 

It is to be hoped that with the Increased facilities 
for the study of music, and tbe greater opportunity for 
hearing music of a high order, that the students will 
not only be more interested In musical matters than 
they have been, but will be interested In good music as 
welt. It does not speak very highly for the culture of 
the students that they crowd to hear such music (7) as 
has been given by at least one of the so-called concert 
troupes employed by the Lecture ABSociation, and allOT 
such a work as the " Creation," given by artists of ac- 
knowledged ability, and by a good chorus, to be given 
to an almost empty house. Let the students consider, 
and see If tbbi state of things cannot be reformed.

IT was very truly paid by President Angell, Id hie ad' 
dreeB upon the eveoliig of IiIh arrival, tlial our weak 
point )s our library. And Iblti in the more unfortunate, 
eincewe cannot, as can Columbia, for liiBtaure, make 
up for tbe dt^AcleDclee of our own by tbe use of great 
outside col lection B. 

Mr. Carlyle haa somewhere said, tliat auniveralty is 
a collcctlun of books, and tbis taken witb some quallfl- 
catioB Is BUbHtautlally true. With books, good and in 
abundance, a student can supplement instruntlon when 
defective, correct It wben erroneous, or get it for him- 
self wbeQ not given by others. With books, In short, 
be can be a self-faelper, an independent worker ; witli- 
out them he becotues a mere vat for the reception of 
knowledge, useful or otherwise, to be filled more or lens 
completely ai'cordiiig to tbe dUpObltJon or the ability of 
his instructors. 

It is not the lack of buildings, nor the lack of appa- 
ratus, nor the lack of professors, that is the greatest 
drawback upon our progress as a university, but the 
lack of books, for original work is the prime character- 
istic of the true university, and original work can no 
more satisfactorily be done without a complete library, 
than bricks could be made by tbe Israelites without straw. 
Does a student want to trace the latest developments of 
Chemistry or Physiology, our library has little for him. 
Does be desire a thorough knowledge of tbe workings 
of the modern governments of Continental Europe, or 
even of certain Important phases of American history, 
he must pursue bis researches elsewhere. The difficulty 
does not lie In wbat we have got, for there Is probably 
no better selected library in any college, but In not hav- 
ing enough, not in quality but la quantity. It Is im- 

possible that in thirty thousand volumes can be com- 
prised half the needs nf a great and growing inftilulion 
like this, and equaly impoxsible that with the present 
meagre appropriation of (2,600 a vear these needs can 
for a long time be supplied. In fsct, unless something 
Is done they will become more and more urgent, for 
were we well equlpiied for the present, Ibis yearly pit- 
tance would not keep the library up with the limes ; as 
it Is we are behind and likely to fall further and further 
behind every year. 

No Institution of learning in tiiecountry equals this 
in numbenK-there are but two that approach It— and iu 
general retiulte we need not fear comparison witli either. 
In but one respect can tbey boast great superiority. 
Harvard has 200,000 volumes in her library. Yale 100,000, 
Michigan 30,000. What wonder that on such a showing 
our number of post-graduates Is so small, that professors 
leave us to work under conditions more favorable to the 
research that every professor needs. 

But there Is another defect, no less serious, that can 
be remedied in a for shorter time and with far less money 
than can the lack of books, and ibis is the lack of op- 
portunity of using wbat we have got. If our library Id 
inadequate there Is no reason that it should be rendered 
still more so by hampering -our use of it. Recitations 
commence at quarter past eight and close at six, but the 
library does not o[jen till nine while It closes at five. In 
tbe evening we have but tVom seven till half-past nine. 
Thus we are shut out of the library during the day for an 
hour and three- quarters, time that by tbe great majority 
of students, Is not occupied in recitation and might 
therefore be most proBtalily employed in reading. Again, 
bair-past nine is somewhat earlier than most of 
us like to suspend reading for tbe evening. Owing to 
the small size of the library we are necessary prevented 
from extending tbe time of work by taking books home 
with us. But in the present condition of the library, the 
librarian and his at^sl^tunts have even too much work to 
do in keeping it open the present number of hours. 
Another asfislant i^ Imperatively required. Tbe trifling 
expenseof adding one to tbe present force would lighten 
the work of the rest somewhat and would enable the 
library to be kept open full time. It la understood that, 
when tbe library building Is completed, this change will 
be made. But as It will be some time before tbe new 
building can be ready for use, all students who graduate 
this year certainly, and probably those who graduate 
next will have no share In its benefits. But another as- 
sistant could be added at once, and all students would 
profit by it. It seems that the slight appropriation 
needed for accomplishing so much good ought to he ea- 
sily obtained. We hope, therefore, that at the coming 
meeting of the Regents steps will be taken to secure It, 
and by so doing greatly and immediately to Increase 
the efficiency of the library.
