In the last number of the JFdnmlmn, there
is an editorial which scorns to have some
thing to say about the Hesperian. In fact,
the first part of the editorial is good, but it
is weakened by the last part. It is begun
by a quotation from the Hesperian. That
does very well. The editor could not have
chosen more wisely. This quotation is fol

not object very seriously to the idea that the
frat-barb question should be allowed to root.
We were disgusted long before the present

present year said less, we believe, about
frats than the Hesperian of previous years,
for some time back. We remained silent
not because wo were afraid to speak; not
"because our views had changed any; but be
cause we desired to see the two factions take
