The state which produces so many public men,
and almost controls the politics of the nation, also

Some orlts contributed articles aro rather long;
not concise enough. An editorial upon compul
sory attendance on two churcli services each Sun
day, speaks for itself. Tho writer handles tho
question independently and without gloves. Wo
admire such spirit and boldness on tho part of a
college editor in expressing the opinion of a ma
orlty of students. A college Journal should mir
ror the thoughts of its college readers.
Tho locals and clippings in tho Collegian an
Neoterlati save It from condemnation. Wo four
tho editors have too strong a dcslro to "llll up"
with the fruits of others laborers.
A poor excuse for a paper comes to us from Ore

write a few live and raey editorials onco in a while
we will hopo to boo internal as Voll as external

His remarks on an article appearing in the Knox
Stujant will bear repetition; "Tho rmalndor or
tho paper Is a llttlo too heavy und shows altogeth
er too much servility to tho faculty. Independ

when a college paper cringes beforo und favors
upon tho faculty in disgusting obsequiousness,
its usotulnosB is ended, Its highest duty neglected."
Tho llobart Herald next claims our attention,
ir it Is not forwardness on our part, wo would sua
geet that tho local page bo hotter patronized. If
there is anything that makes u college paper rank
among tho llrst it is u spicy and readable local
page. This department needs more attention
than any other. Tho Herald like a few other ox
changes has set apart space for literary criticism
on current publications, liults a Held is open to
the editor und the department can bo mado a val

The Ariel halls from cold Minnesota. Tho Lit
erary department is encumbered with two lum
bnrHomo articles; one "Tho NccyomautcU of Ho
mer and Virgil." Thoothor, "England or Itus
sla." Tho latter is a supposed speech of an Af
ghan orator. Tho writer has boon endowed with
n wonderful imagination to even dream of such a
supposition. We only wish Afghanistan hud sov
eral such orators, but If she did wo aro quite cer
tain none of them would speak of Gladstone and
England's foreign policy, as did this hypocritical
orator. Tno editorial in regard to students not
consulting library books is very llttinglndocdand
tho application could bo mado In other Institu
tions as well. It is a deplorable- fact that too
many students In our colleges graduate without a
knowledge of that which tboy would gain from li
brary visitation, ('rook and Latin may be u very
good thing in their place; but a man In practical
life mtiBt be supplied with better agents than
these, ir he would obtain a livelihood common
surato with tho time and labor expended.
