the work of each is valuable to the young ladies who
take an interest in it. One of them, however, ante
dates the other quite a little in point of establish

The articles in our column of "Opinions" in this
issue give promise that The Hesperian is to become
more truly a students1 organ. We are assured of
more contributions from the same pen, but hope to
have others than -"Sans Detour" become contributors
to this column. It is much to be desired that The
Hesperian become a more constant medium for the
use -of students.
There is much inconvenience, and more indigna
tion, felt concerning the present poor arrangements
for distributing the mail delivered at the University,
Many of the students are addressed at the University
and the amount of mail that accumulates here to be
distributed by the janitor as he can find time is sim
ply more than he can find time to handle. We
would suggest that tht office of the Steward or the
Librarian's desk is the proper place of distribution,
and hope that some change for the better is among
the things possible and soon to be realized.
Some time ago we took occasion to comment upon
the excellent work done by the ladies' debating club
in connection with one of the literary societies. We
We were correct in the statement, in our last is
sue, concerning the date of Commencement and the
Teasons for a change this year, except that we did not
give all the causes. The work of the year has been
often interrupted by various unforeseen events, and
the term is lengthened for this year not only that the
work may be completed but also that we may avoid,
another year, those interruptions occasioned by the
State Fair and the meeting of the State Teachers
Association. This will be accomplished by the
change since the date of Commencement determines
the date of the Fall opening, and by the change that
will now occur on the last day of the Fair,
As students of the University we are always glad
to hear of any attempt to broaden its sphere of use
fulness. The faculty now talk of establishing a chair
of Veterinary Science, Action upon the question
by the regents will not be taken until June, but it is
probable that such a chair will be then instituted.
In time this means extensive improvements ubon the
College Farm and a new building upon the campus.
If these things are accomplished, this department will
be most important one, from a practical point of
view, to the farmers and stock growers of the state.
A knowledge of the diseases of domestic animals is
too often lacking when most needed, and instiuction
in this necessary adjunct to agriculture will be very
welcome to the young farmers of our stock-growing

One of our literary societies has lately hit upon a
scheme, the spirit of which we hail as tending in the
right direction, and would Tecommend the other so
cieties to adopt some similar plan. This is the plan:
-The corresponding secretary is instructed to enter
into correspondence with all graduate members of the
society, requesting literary contributions to be deliv
ered before the society in person, or should that prove
inconvenient, to be forwarded to the corresdonding
secretary who shall xead them as a part of the regular
Friday evening program. Some of the productions
have been already given, and not only added to the
interest of the exercises, but also awakened manv
