One o1 the best written essj . uie
met with during om editorial eaieer we
louttd in ibe la4 nnmlx r of the lit Slu
Atari, tatuled. "TtH- College Libiat ami
how to Use it." The ideas, no less than
tho manlier in which '.hoy wereexprestoth
wore highly commendable. Jratry
thoughts were worthy to be wriueti in
every student's note book: "Acuteness,
'lonipieheiision and conrent ration are fac
ulties hid (sponsible to successful reading,"
and again: "The two main objects of
reading, to the student, arc the acquisition
of knowledge and a preparation for 15ng
lisli composition." "Before reading a
book one should, after the manner of Dan
iq" Webster, 113k himself what questions
ho expects to hnvo answered by iu" Tho
editorial of tho Studtnt ttpoa Us Cbllego
Clirlstinn Association was a frank, earnest
appeal to eollese students, in behalf of
practical Christianity In the oolloge. It
speaks well for Bates Coilogo that Uicy
have such an iVssociation us this, though
us they have a theological department,
tlioy arc naturally e.vpoctod to ink on more
active part in religious matters than insti
tutions which savor more of this world
and whose students are eminently "carnal
all minded."
The new board of editors of the Call,
lorn ia llakthtan start out very mod cstl v
with a 1 1 tink statement a to the true po
sition of their paper. Iu closing, they ex
press the wish that in trusting their frai
craft upon the treacherous ocean of col
lie journalism, lliey may, by carvftil sup
ervision and mature deliberation, guide
her into the secure harbor of pnhlic favor.
The only editorial that foHowed was upon
tho most hackneyeu .f all subjects, tho
duty of students to write for their collegu
papers. Wo trust thai iu the future the
UtrMeyun editors may choose more in
tcreMiug and k'6s wont oiu themes for
their readeis. A unique feature of tlie
last number was an original article up n
the "Uomanco ol Students."
