The time rapidly approaches when,
paiticularly among students, that energy
which is so essential to progress becomes
blighted, all activity becomes dormant,
and college life-, above all things, is most
abhorred. With the approach of spring,
idlenccs malces its appearance, dissatis.
faction prevails, and that portion of the
year, the most pleasant and agreeable, is
found by students generally the reverse.
There is a remedy tor this, thu opportuni
ty for a speedy cure should not be lost,
Exercise. There is a time for everything,
a time to exercise as well as sti dy, and to
the student that would prosper, would
make college life pleasant, exercise each
day is as essential as eating. Activity
makes health, health is what you're after.
TJako care of the physical system, and tlio
mental will take care of itself. The stu

The chair of English Literature and
Rhetoric has at last been filled. That
which the University has stood so long in
need of has at last been procured. The
delay in this matter has worked evil,
which is plainly visible among the stu
dents. Instruction in that direction, which
is so essential to lit the student f'ir active
as well as social life, has been almost en
tirely neglected, until now the students,
above all others, can appreciate the late
action of the regents. A further delay
would have been unpardonable But bet
ter late than never.
Tno regents have made an admirable
selection, and ono who will fill the chair
