their little cups and swoids were in full

a list of songs. The singing was inspir

siastic, happy voices made the walls
resound with songs in honor of "Doutsch

joys of a German student's life.
Each of your neighbors at your table
introduced himself and drank to your
health. Al the conclusion of the toast
they drank Salamanders. The toaster
counted three, at the conclusion of which
each man drank a whole glass of beer
without taking the mug from his mouth.
After another count of three each rattled
his empty glass on the beer table, making
a most infernal racket. This pounding
kept up while the leader slowly yelled the
usual number. Then two thousand glasses
were raised high in the air and at the fin

In Lincoln urbs a hero Uvcd,
Qui loved puullas deux;
Ho ne pouvalt as quite to lay

Then Kate and I have war.
Amanda habct argent coin,
Scd Kate has aurens curls;
Et both sunt very uyatta,
Et quite formosa girls."

Both sunt so goodly fair.

Between puellas twain,

At fair Amanda's eyes,

Pro which ho meant his sighs.
Each vlrgo heard the deml-vow
With checks as rouge as wine,
And offering each a milk-white hand,
Both whispered, " Ich bin dclnl "

Considehable trouble has been exper
ienced of late by professors holding their
classes over the hour. The students Of
one class let out a few minutes late, often
disturb several classes by going in after,
they have begun. For the same reason
the Chapel exercises are disturbed by
students coining in late. In holding
classes over the time, the object is the
only commendable tiling about it.
same is true of essays. They are some
tiling students desire to preserve.
With the advice of Prof. Emerson, cor
tain of the students have taken :i step in
the right direction. A club has been
formed, to be known as the "Philosoph
ieal club." Its object the study and dis
cussion of the interesting topics of the
day. These discussions will be for the.
most part carried on in tho f.irm of dc
bates. It is by such movements among
.students that true progress is to be mens
ured. Our University lias plenty of ma
tcrial for four or live good societies.
Good class work is not enough. To carry
forward and complete the aim ot n Uni
versity education, it needs to bo coupled
with a knowledge only to be had from dis
cussion and reading.

Thkiie is considerable dissatisfaction
existing among the students in regard to
the delay in receiving their mails. It is
no uncommon tiling for a letter to lay ip
the ofllce at Lincoln a week or ten dft)s
before it is delivered. Much complaint
also comes to the business mannirer fiohi
subscribers who do not regularly receive
the Student. He says the papers are put
in the ofllce, but subscribers do not got
them. This is a serious inconvenience
to students, and one for which Mr.
McIJridc as postmaster, is responsible and
ought to remedy.
Many times the examination papers,
especially tho final ones, are not returned
to the sludents. They are given their
standing only. Hence, they have not the
opportunity of looking over their papers
to see their mistakes and thus find out in
what part of their work they are deficient.
An examination paper is of no use to a
professor, save to kindle a fire, while it is
a pleasure to a student, sometimes at
least, to see ogain what caused him three
or four hours of steady writing. The
A bout of tradition prevails among the
students of tho University that in the so
cieties each member must hold some
office before graduating. Thero seems to
be a general stampede among those in the
higher classes for at least one term in tin
president's chair. This desire on the
part of the student seeking the position
is all right; but the argument on the part
of his friends that lie is about to graduate
and has never had the position, is a little
bit old. Not all students are fitted for
this place. Some peculiar characteristics
making them good workers in the society
may unfit them as presiding officers. The
good of the society should bo the first
consideration. To say that a certain one
will not make a good president, not onh

striving after tho same end as ourselves.
All in the higher classes should, as a duty
they owe themselves, bo frank and so
ciable with the new students, make them
feel at home as one of our number. Man
is a sociable being, aud for him to wrap
himsoir up in dignity and assumed su
periority, shows ho fears he cannot conic
in close and intimate contact with his fel
lows without losing their respect and con
fidence. Better let the world know what
you are and what capable of doing than to
live a lie all your life. One kind and fitting
word aptly spoken may cheer onward and
be a support to some student away from
homo for the first time. Words cost noth
ing. Speak when you think good can be
done. Let there be moro sociability.
