white stono steps, with their rod sides,
which mark the cntranco to the
Library. They aro nine In number,
considerably worn by weather and
constant ubo, and possess tho same
useful qualities which exist in any
steps. Thus they impress tho visitor,
whoso scope of observation is narrow
and is limited by a lack of Information
as to collcgo activities.
But to the college student what a
chacming aspect those sordid steps
acquire! They represent a wealth of

aro not so much in evidence, nor is
their possession of the steps as stable
