1'hc Campus comes to us in its usual brisk, cheery way.
The Ottawa Campus contains a well written nrticle on
He more sociable, Lawrentiair, why is your exchange col
unm (?) so short?
Is "John Brown" a chestnut? We find the same article in
the Rockord Seminary Magazine.
Is the nitrate of silver higher or lower than the day rate?
Heidcldcrg Journal. Horrible! Ughll
The same magazine contains an article on Influence of
Art on Character," which is worthy of notice.
The Univ. Courier is unusually bright and interesting. It
gives home news and plenty of it. In fact it is a newspn
per. The Sibyl contains an article by '"no" on "The Weather."
It is decidedly fresh; still it is pretty lively for an article on
that subject.
Among our new exchanges wo t.re pleased to greet the Mi
ami Journal. It is a new paper too, a successor of the old
Miami Student.
Pacific Pharos has a new and suggestive cut on its cover. It
is always brisk and cheery and is fast becoming one of the
standard papers c( the west.
St. Charles College Gazette seems to contain lots of news for
the students, and also some pleasing articles for those who
arc not students of the college.
The columns of College News in the Egis arc well pre
pared, and arc spicy and interesting. sEgis always has its
columns well filled with readable matter.
The Bellevue College Star appears for the first time we be
lieve, and lo! on the first page among the list of editors we
see two names formerly enrolled among our own students, M
E Lewis and A G Barnes, Jr.
The University Register contains an article on John Brown
which is full of exclamation points. Also an article setting
forth the benefits to be derived from attending the Eastman
business college, which reminds us of the'time when several
warm friends (?) were helping us to decide which literary so
ciety to join.
When you have a local, personal, or even a joke, if it be
not too threadbare, don't be selfish and keep it all to your
self, but hand it to one of the editors. They can't always,
out of two or three hnndred, strike the one man who knows
something. Vidette-Reporter. Probably because he is one
of the editors.
We welcome the Ho lead of Westminster college, New Wil
mington, Penn. Regretting the fact that seven pages out of
ten are filled with contributed matter, yet we find in the re
maining five enough news to compensate in a way. Typo
graphically the Holcad is very neat. All in all it is such as
the Hksi'EIUAN delights to welcome.
Among our new exchanges we note the Dartmouth. Pub
lished fortnightly by editors chosen from the Senior class of
Dartmouth College, this paper is a model colleegc journal.
The matter is good; the arrangement and printing the best,
the style and literary merit commendable the whole verging
close upon our ideal of a college journal.
Bright, interesting, ntwsy and feminine, are the adjectives
which are suggested to us upon picking up the Hamilton Col
lege Monthly. Bright in appearance, interesting and newsy
jn matter and feminine in everything in so much that it catch
es the eye, convinces the mind and wins the heart; in fact
shows in everything that it is the work ol representative
womanhood. Always welcome, it endears itself to us more
and more every issue. No, its interest is not due to the fact
that it appears in a new and withal handsome dress but be
cause it is always thus.
The Chips comes out with an article on literary societies
which is of a brighter cast than those in most papers. It
however, goes to the other extreme and runs down associa
tions pretty thoroughly. It docs admit thai while some good
may be obtained from them, the majority of associations only
work for the purpose of gaining a victory over their oppo
ncnts. You have as wrong an idea of associations as some of
your sister journals have of literary societies.
You hardly have confidence that we will win in the prohi
bition cause, Hesperus? We hope you are not of the steadily
decreasing number who say that prohibition will not succeed
because of its weakness. The world is fast coining to ac
knowledge that right instead of might should rule; and when
this is fully realized prohibition will succeed. How better
can we hasten the day than by placing what little influence we
may have on the side of right and prohibition? Your article
on "The New Issue" is very interesting.
The exchange editor ol the Niagara Index has never been
sparing of his compliments, giving them alike to the deserv
ing and the undeserving. Just now, however, his past friends
have turned upon him, and enemies seem to beset him on all
sides. In his extremity he allows himself to "slop over," ap
plying epithets to his fellow editors of the fair sex, that even
his breeding should have interdicted. We sympatizc with
you, and warrant your ability to get out all right; but don't
get out by a course that will ultimately keep you out.
Now therefore the Editor-in Chief of the Hesperian said
unto the exchange editor thereof, "Behold thy allotted task
is not yet completed. Therefore write ye more concerning
the papers which lie round about you on this instrument of
torture known as the editor's table." Then the exchange
editor of the Hesi'KUIAN replied unto him and said, "Behold
now for some days past I have sought this place in order to
find if some papers concerning which I am accustomed to
write arc here, and lo! I have not been able lo find one.
Moreover, thy servant the exchange editor has been called
upon to perform various other tasks of late which have caus
ed thy servant to be sore troubled and disturbed in mind, and
which also consumed all the time of thy servanl. However
that I may find favor in thy sight, behold I will now once
more seek thy table, in order to find if there be any papers
which I may not have seen before." Now therefore, the ex
change editor looked and behold there appeared the follow
ing: Notre Dame Scholastic, Chaddock, Monmouth Collegian,
and the Foster Academy Review, Now therefore, it is diffi
cult to write concerning these papers, because there is not
much found in them. Now it might be said of the first that
there arc some articles in it worthy of men ion; nevertheless
they were not written by the hand of any student. In the
second, one 'Brooks" by name has given to the public his
view of classical literature. In the third, behold we find some
articles which must have been written by the hand of a Fresh
man, perchance with the aid of some Junior. In the 'ast are
many witty sayings which provoke the reader to laughter.
These, O Editor-in-Chief, are all thy servant is able to
