Another college year is at ils close ami
again Ihe summer vacation comes in its
welcome round. Once more we take a
respite from study to seek recreation in
other forms of work. To view relaxa
tion in this way seems at llrst paradoxi
cal, yet its truth is apparent. When one
lets himself sink into a state of inactivity,
his faculties become blunted thereby, and
the inertia of idleness makes dillicult a
renewal of employment. Variety of oc-
cupation, not idleness, supplies our need
ed recreation, and keeps our powers fresh
and active. After a summer spent in oth
er employments, the student may return
with renewed zest to his duties.
"We must now take leave of our friends
and separate for the summer, often to
puss it in a more solitary manner. The
time seems welcome when we can again
meet our classmates and engage in the
good naturcd rivalries of school life. Yet
the opening of an other college year will
not Unci us all present. Some, for iinau
oial reasons, will stay away for a time.
Others would return, did not the " root of
all evil," by a tempting oiler, induce them
to forego the enduring benefits of an edu
calioh. Others, still, lack the resolution to
persevere through the toil of a college
course, and so fall oil' through indiller-
ence toward the advantages which it se
cures. And so, out of the scores who an
nually enter our newer colleges, but few,
comparatively, complete a course of
study. It behooves the student, therefore,
to improve well his college life, so that he
may profit all he can from the varied and
priceless culture which it alio ids.
COUNTRY AND CITY.
When the farmer's son is about to shift
for himself, he is strongly inclined to
seek employment in the city in preference
to remaining on the farm. If he has ah
ready become acquainted with city life,
the country does not often have so many
attractions for him us before.
A certain class of people seem to re
gard with little favor this tendency to
ward the city. They contrast with the
healtbfulness and independence of the
farmer's life, the want, snares and uncer
Utility of employment which are preva
lent in cities. They dwell upon the haz
ards which there attend the pursuit of
business. They toll the young man,
therefore, to remain in the country. They
say that in the long run he will thus fol-
