Thursday morning some of the Alumni
and Seniors started for Alii ford on a pic
nicing tour. It began to rain shortly af
ter they reached their destination. The
rain did not come gently dropping with
its ceaseless palter, and all that; but the
clouds tipped oer and spilled. We tried
to find out how they enjoyed the trip, but
it is a matter of some difficulty. Wilson
said it was cloudy. A few words in a
confidential lone elicited the fact that it
rained. While a 5-cent ci , we mean a
glass of soda, brought out the admission
that it came in torrents. lie didn't care
though, ile went out tor lun and was
going to have it or bus incss should
stand stagnant in Mil ford until he did
have it. "But, between you and me,"
said he, "the other boys were rather blue,
but don't hint that I gave 'cm away."
Field admitted immediately that it rained
but said be got all the fun he wanted out
of laughing at the other boys, they were
so glum. Morton didn't enjoy it so well
as lie would have done if the other boys
had kept up their spirits as he did,
Piatt and Holmes had bushels of fun.
While Wilson was pouting in the house,
they got a boy to swim over and get one
of bis rubber boots, and they used this as
a canal, and established a rapid transit
line between their respective lodgings.
Sturdevant refused to commit himself.
He hadn't the cast iron check to say he
had a good time ; and was too conscien
tious to use language that would do jus
tice to the truth. This is the way the mat
ter stands; and wc can't get a verdict un
til wc send out to Mil ford, and find
whether the natives took them for a party
of missionaries or a band of Figi braves.

On the evening of the 9lh inst., the
Opera House was crowded to its utmost
with one of the most intelligent audiences
that ever assembled in this city, tho oc
casion being the annual exhibition of the
Union Society. The programme was not
loo long, aid was well carried out. We
have not space to give the thought em
bodied in the various productions ot the
evening, and therefore we can give only
a passing mention of each one. "The
Music of the Spheres," an essay by
Miss Jesiiio Parker, showed that it was
not written without considerable reflec
tion, and contained some very choice
thoughts. Sam Cox's poem was listened
to with interest Miss Helen Judkins
oration, "Liberty and Equality," was a
soul stirring cllort, full of patriotism, and
worth the consideration of any true
American. The debate, "Should educa
lion be made the basis of suffrage?" was
