The Courier has a number of little items which arc doubt
less very interesting to the students of the University.
"The Law of Growth in Character" is the best article
found in the College Index. It is well written and follows
closely the theme.
"Among the Glacicrs'Ms a very pleasing article found in the
Pharos. We can always take time to read this paper and not
consider it misspent.
The latest number of the Campus seems to be more inter
esting than usual. Nearly all of the articles are short, but to
the point and pleasing.
Student Life contains numberless jokes which arc doubtless
well appreciated by the students. It also has two quite lengthy
articles besides some poetry.
A rather childish though interesting story appears in the
Roekford Seminary Magizine. Such a type of literature is un
usual foi that magazine.
Among our new exchanges appears the Lombard Reviexo.
We are glad to make its acqaintancc. It has quite a lengthy
exchange column and seems very sociable.
Hamilton College Monthly only helps to show women's abil
ity to stand equal with men in literary work. Its columns
arc well filled with interesting matter.
The University, another of our new exchanges has a con
siderable inclination toward fun, but has between its covers
much of the "solid." Its exchange column is interesting.
Fiofcssor in English Literature: "Who is the fallen angel
Milton speaks about?" Quick Student: ''Mercury, sir: I heard
but the other day that Mercury fell 15 degrees." Coup
The Signal comes as usual filled with fun and news. It's a
bright paper but some of its so-called fun borders too closely
upon mere nonsense to be allowed in a college paper that
pretends to be anything.
Northwestern comes to us filled as usual with bright, inter
esting matter. Quite a sensible article is found in it arguing
in favor of the scheme of making its paper a weekly instead
of a semi-monthly as it now is.
Most of our exchanges are full of Thanksgiving items, eu
logies on turkeys etc. Thanksgiving time is always one of
good cheer and happiness and is one of the holidays looked
forward to with great pleasure by all.
The plain neat cover of The Dartmouth attracts attention,
and one is not disappointed on opening it. The arrangement
of the paper especially, is exceptionally good. The contents
of the paper are, like the cover, plain and elegant.
University Quarterly's pages are well filled with interesting
matter. In one of the editorials the new scheme of the faculty
in conducting examinations is discussed. It seems that here
tofore the plan has been to hold annual instead of term exami
nations. We think that all students must be glad of the change.
The Simpsortian gives us a rub on our covers. Thinks they
would look better if they were not "disfigured by serpents"
&c. Don't you know Simpsonian that these covers are a
great work of art? Are you so unapprcciative that you can
not catch the meaning of the design? Well, live and learn.
Again the Vanderbilt Observer gladdens our table. An ar
ticle describing the discovery of Prof, Barnard's new comet
is interesting to scientific students. The comet was discover
ed on the morning of the 6th inst. Prof. Barnard, it' seems,
has already discovered six comets. He has been remarkably
successful in his researches.
The first number of the Exponent published by our friends
of the Beatrice public schools is on our tabic. Welcome Ex
ponent. Your appearance is, withal, good; there is, ncverthc
ess, a very wide room for improvement; but enterprising and
able men seem to back you up, and we predict some little no
toriety for you, in the not very distant future.
Monmouth Collegian gives a list of some of the college col
ors as follows'; Amherst, white and purple; Bowdoin, white;
Brown, brown; University of California, pink; Cornell, car
nclian; Dartmouth, green; Harvard, crimson; University of
New York, violet; University of Pennsylvania, blue and red;
Princeton, orange and black; Yale, blue. The Collegian is
is quite a newsy paper.
Let's see what the Doane Owl has to say. Usually it con
tains something funny, perhaps considered witty by the writ
ers. This time we arc first attracted by a review of Ben Hur;
it is Well written and shows that the writer has carefully read
the book. It would be time well invested for anyone to read
this book who has not already done so. It is one of the most
interesting books both as to matter and style, that we were
ever fortunate enough to read.
Alabama jV0MM',thearticle"Influence of Climate upon Na
tional and Individual Character" is worthy of attention. "The
Power of Listening" is also a very interesting article, well
written and instructive. In fact all the matter of this paper
hows thought and preparation. In the rush and hurry of col
lege life ,one is very liable to perform his work in such a hasty
manner that it will do him no good, and will not benefit any
one else. In the end it always pays to spend enough time up
on what we undertake to have it well done, and not partly
There is a great dificrence between, labor and discipline.
The object of all school work is to promote moral, mental and
bodily growth; but certain kinds of labor arc stunting and
stultifying. No strength can be obtained from forced study.
Growth and discipline come from spontaneous work. There
are millions of human beings who must be kept hard at work
all their lives in order to keep from doing mischief; the very
safety of the world depends upon their constant occupation.
True growth comes through discipline, produces education
and ends in wisdom. Its means are sympathy, good motives,
benevolence and earnestness. Discipline through labor is
the end and aim of all true school woik. Ex.
