The. exorcises of Friday night, the 27th,

by the regular debaters, and after the
decision for the negative, was thoroughly
discussed by the society in general.
On Friday evening, the lyth, althoui;!

Politeness is llko an air-cushion; there may bo
nothing In It, but It ceases our Jolts wonderfully.
A witness, in desclblng certain events, said:
"Tho person l saw nt the head of tho stairs was

"What was tho name of tho other eyo?"' spite
fully asked the opposing counsel. The witness
was disgusted nt tno levity of tho audience.
A very polite people are they of Cochin
China. In the conjugation of their verb?
they use the noun "servant" instead of
the first pergonal pronoun. Thus, lor "I
love" they say 'Servant loves," etc.
The Chinese strive to be equally agree
able. They say "little man loves;" or,
"subject loves;" or, "thief loves;" or,
How would it do for us to adopt these
forms? Some of them would til almost
everybody. A very sentimental j'oung
man would readily be believed if he
should say "blockhead loves;" or a per
son of "fast" tendencies if he should
assert that "thief loves." A little expan
sion of our grammatical forms would
enable us in many instances to get much
nearer the truth. Tinteun.
