Nebraska numbers one wore among its institutions of
learning. Bartley is the place and Mallalieu University the
proposed name. Success attend it.
Nebraska Central College at Central City is to have a $to,
oou addition soon. Nebraska's appreciation of her educa
tional institutions is rapidly developing,
A college has recently been put to a unique use. The
Methodists of Orleans, Harlan Co., succeeded in ridding
themselves of saloons by threatening to remove their college
if licenses were granted.
A general wail goes up from college papers, headed by the
Pharos and Sityl, because of the unwillingness of students to
se their valuable time in writing contributions. This is per
haps due to the unusual amount of work necessary to be done
by the average student during the spring term. Our advice
is, Make your paper more a paper by the editors, even if it
takes a larger board.
The Hillsdale Advance and Notre Dame Scholastic should
consider what will be our feelings before they perpetrate such
a scheme upon us again. Wc have schooled ourselves to en
dure the scanning of a single copy, but wc are afraid we could
not stand a double dose. So, in all earnestness, if you con
sider the balance of our mind of any consequence, mail us
but one copy of the same number hereafter.
The Northwestern contains a very interesting account of
the commencement occurrences of the Garret Biblical Insti
tute. A reader of the description is impressed with the prog
ress of that institution as well as the reporting abilities of the
writer. This is well; a student, tnrning back to commence
ment numbers, finds rare pleasure in such a description; re
calling as it does many of the happiest events in a college
aat a relief to pass from the dry, pithless articles of most
f (Mr exchanges to the refreshing and elevating article upon
"The Aim of Life" in the last number of the Occident. The
skillful manner in which the true aim is presented and the ne
cessity for the adoption of the right spirit, attracts and rivets
the attention. This production has a double merit, as it
crimes, presumably, from a memtcr of the board of editors.
While that fact does not effect the intrinsic worth of the arti
cle, yet it shows the spirit of the editors and accords well
with our idea of a college paper.
The number of those papers which, in order to give their
subscribers a true idea of their standing among college papers,
print all the favorable comments made upon them by other
("papers and forget to print all which are unfavorable has late
ly been increased by the adoption of that plan by the Nor
malNews. This, however much the subscribers may wish to
kaour the true standing of their college paper, is not, in our
eyM, the true aim of a college paper. Egotism crops out
however plausible the excuses may seem. Look about you,
Normal, aad see the class of papers whose ranks you are join -ing
w thi respect, and we think yoa will soon strive to be
clawed a little higher grade of college journals.
The idea of state rights, at first (predominant, gra duilly
.ott its adherents until, after a desp:rate strujle o! mm
yean, it fbttsd, as other dying institutions have found, son:
teat hrted aad obstinate men to uphold its worn out prio -ciftlec
aad make a last grand struggle for its re establishment.
Many f a, thaagh not of an age to fully appreciate the sit
motion, have swgc, tkreagh the vivid descriptions of older
ones, realised and appreciated the position; whit giant efforts
were made h) the zealous supporters of a dying principle;
how, with the last throes of a despairing people, their all but
exhausted energy was united for, one grand trial of strength
which, while exposing their weakness, disclosed with aston
ishing vividness the depths of despair to which they had fall
en. Few could gac on that fearful struggle without being
inspired with both pity and contempt; pity for their blind ob
stinacy and contempt for their motives. Such spectacles,
though on a smaller scale, arc, even at this later day, brought
continually before us. Beginning under a management which
was comparatively able, the Aurora has rapidly lust its form
er position, and now when all but dead intellectually it gath
cis together its exhausted energies for a grand final effort.
And what an effort! Despair and idiocy arc written on its
very face. Despairing of ever equalling our "sole literary ar
ticle," it attempts to render its ownMiterary capacity less con
spicuous by making the rash assertion that our "literary arti
cle" was the work of a professor. O! beneficent Creator,
have mercy upon the dauntless(?) exchange editor of the Au
roral Grant that he may be rescued from his great affliction,
so that, should he ever again write an article, he will not,
then, merit the contempt of his fellow students.
