Plie Campus comes to its in its usual brisk, cheery way.
The Ottawa Campus contains a well written article on
He more sociable, Liuirenlian; why is your exchange col
umn (?) so short?
Is "John Hrown" a chestnut? Wo Unci the same article in
the Rockford Seminary Magatine.
Is the nitrate of silver higher or lower than the day rate?
Heideldcrg 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 newspa
per. The Siiyl contains an article by "'90" on "The Weather."
It is decidedly fresh; still it is pretty lively for an article on
Among our new exchanges we ere pleased to greet tjic Mi
ami Journal. It is a new paper too, a successor of the old
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 of 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 sEgis 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 wc be
lieve, and lo! on the first page among the list of editors we
sec two names formerly enrolled among our own students, M
E Lewis and A G Barnes, Jr.
The University Register contains an article on John Hrown
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 hundred, strike the one man who knows
something. Vidette- Reporter, Probably because he is one
of the editors.
We welcome the Ho had of Westminster college, New Wil
mington, Pcnn. 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 it such as
the IIesi'KKIAn delights to welcome.
Among our new exchanges wc 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.
Uright, interesting, ntwsy and feminine, are the adjectives
which ore suggested to us upon picking up the Hamilton Col
lege Monthly. Bright in appearance, interesting and newsy
pi matter and feminine in everything in so much. that itcatch
cs 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 inturest 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 that while some good
may be obtained from them, the majority of associations only
work for the purpose of gaining a victory over their oppo
nents. You have as wrong an idea of associations as some of
your sister journals have of literary societies.
You hardly have confidence i.liat we will win in the prohi
bition cause, Hesperus? We hope you arc not of the steadily
decreasing number who say that prohibition will not succeed
because of its weakness. The world is fast coming to ac
knowledge that right instead of might should rule; and when
this is fully realized prohibition will succeed. I low better
can wc hasten the day than by placing what little influence we
may have on the sideof right and prohibition? Your article
on "The New Issue" is very interesting.
The exchange editor of 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 havo interdicted. Wc 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 Hesi'KRIAN 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 IIksI'KKIAN 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 to 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 servant. 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 wc find some
articles which must have been written by the hand of a Fresh
man, perchance with the aid of some Junior. In the last arc
many witty sayings which provoke the reader to laughter.
These, O Editor-ln-Chlcf, arc all thy servant is able to
