monthly, aie piohably out of date. We advise it to play
hedgehog and leturn into its hole.
The Delpn'c, Drake univciMty, Dcs Moines, Ta.,- has a
sketch on the life and poctiy of Whitticr. It is well written.
We would like to clip it but such not being our privilege, we
invite all to visit our sanctum and read the tribute to one of
our greatest poets.
This is our last issue, hence wc would like to say a parting
woid. Thcic aie several things very discouraging about the
exchange department. The fust is the small type which wc
have had to put up with. It is bad enough to write ai tides
when they arc read. But where, O where is the glory or
honor in writing an) thing and seeing it set in type which is
literally "out of sight," and knowing that no one ever reads
it. Tiue the Index was wont to read our scribs, but even
the patience and eyes of his Irish highness have played out
and he too leaves our column in silent obscurity We have
worked hard to get the paper on a new basis, but, alas, wc
arc just where wc were a year ago to-day. Ye luture editor
will, wc hope, sail in with the vim and force of a new reciuit.
But he will, we cnture to say, be tiled of his job before the
the year is up. Tiled, did we sa)? Well, no, not that.
Jhit he will not care much what he writes, lie will like to
sec the exchanges come in; to read the bright remarks of
some and the summer poetry ol others. He will clip the
witticisms for his scrap-book and cull the pictures as keep
sakes; and so keep up his interest. Sowc have done. We
thank all our exchanges for exchanging with us and brighten
ing our way with their lustrous works. Farewell.
