The long looked for catalogue for the ycat 1881-2
has at last mtde its appearance. One of the greatest
faults the S'itijent has to find with it is that it did
not come sooner. With the exception of the typo
graphical error which gives it the date of this year
instead of last the press work is neat and tasteful.
The catalogue contains the revised course of study and
the announcements for the present year. Of the
changes made we have prcviouslyspoken. The num

A great many persons fancy tlwt the task of the
college professor is a light and easy one. If thi be

the teachers in the University appear to be over
