Tlic Vidotte Reporter is a good weekly, containing con.

The Badger complains of a lack of boys vrho take an
interest in college songs. The sar, o might truthfully bo
said of our University.
The Asbury Monthly has a good column on "Fraternity
Notes." 'Would it not bo well for another society to bo
organized in this institution? The Sigma ChVs have it
rather monotonous, being all alone.
The "011a Pod" editor ol tho Berkeleyan Iiiib resigned
and it will bo some limo before another can fill his shoes
and wield his pointed pencil with the grace which char
acterized him. We sympathize with our contemporary.
The Bickentonian hns the right idea when it remaiks
that "The chier aim of the college paper is to represent
as well as possible the spirit of college life in all its
phases. It should bo made interesting to the alumni as
well as to the student."
We should think that the compositors on the Caitha-
ginian would have to steal some small cap primer to
enable them to satisfy the editor who insists on intro
ducing the name of their paper in every editorial and
in sonio two or tlucc times.
Under the head of "misfortunes" the State 3ourn.nl
speaks of the falling of the chimney through tho build
ing to the basement, in the nighttime; ilfit had fallen dur
ing the day, it would have killed several profiessors and
n number of (-Indents. We did not think that Regent Gere
had such an antipathy to the University proflVssors and
Tho Reveille and Undergraduate had belter discontinue
publishing the ad "Ears for the Million," as had the
Berkeleyan, Kaunas Review, University Press ami Dicken
sonian also Ihe "Mendelssohn Piano Co's ad as they nrc
frauds and never pay tneir bills. We had them last year
through Ilcrmon Con. nut & Co, New York, and were
cheated out of thirty dollars. Our near friends can
testify to tlio same
So the Occident has bad trouble with some unwelcome
visitors in their ofllice. Well brother we sympathize
with you, for wo have been in similal circumstances only
worse. They not only pied our forms but took the tyne
put it in a sack, conveyed it some three mi es in tho
country and hid it in a threshing machine. Needless to
say the desperadoes were never captured and tho typo
was not found for several days; however, wo hope you
will succeed in bringing the rascals to justice .
We have now on our exchange lis the names of nca'ly
a hundred collego papers. With an exceptional few
they put in their regular appearance. Wo would like to
impress on the minds of our many "ex's" that wo shall
be very careful in mailing our paper and hope that they
will a ways reach tlieir destination; and further that if
you do the same when yours reach us that wo will take
special caru with each one; for wcliavo an X case that
has an apartment four by six inches for each publication.
Above each is its name as it appears in its sub head.
The caso is inclosed by neat glass doors, so that all dust
may be kept out and also to avoid strange hands from
puling the wralhy ones where they might flight. Our
X caso with its many colored pamphlets Is the pride of
our ofllco and we hope never again to see our tablo and
sanctum knee deep with college literature.

Students who fail to take the Monday evening lecture

In tnc absence of Professor Grossman, Professor
Mitchell favors the class with sperial lectures on dislo
cations. By superabundance of business, Professor Grossmann
has been prevented from meeting too class for
three weeks. We rejoice to learn that ho is soon to

We are pleased to sec that clinics, from near and far,
come before tho class for examination and treatment.
Find mention of sonic of them below.
