TheFebrunry number of the Knox Stu

on Hollands' "Blttcr-Swcot," followed by an
enthusiastic article on Charles Sumner.
The Knox Student has only readied its
fifth issue, yet it has already obtained an
enviable position. Its editorials are
sound and the literary department would

remarks about our red dress. Your os

of cultivation if you cannot admiro its
beauty. You should say that "its bright,

wealth of thought within!"
The Wtttcnburger in a sensible article
urges the students "to keep road up on
politics," and truly says that "u knowledge
of political news should form a part of the
education of every student, without re.

The University Missourian has ti pecu

places the editorial department first and
the literary contributions last. We tin
not consider that the change is any im

the worth of the paper. We wish Hint
all of our exchanges might follow their

The Student Life gives the honored
