There is entirely too much "swiping"
going on in the University and we believe it
our duty to mention it. There is no one so"
mean, so little, so low, so despicable, so con
temptible, as the sneak thief; beside him the
highway robber is a gentleman and a scholar,

ten, however honest he be, he takes C's .hat;
C takes D's, and so on down. If the B's, G's
and D's and the rest of them could simply
catch A once, pile upon him, and exterminate
him, this department of The Hesperian will
agree to contribute its mite cheerfully and
willingly toward defraying his funeral ex
