During the holidays the Ex. Ed. hns hud more time to re
view the exchanges and to treat them more fairly. We find
much that is worthy of notice in nearly all the papers upon
our table and it is far from our desire to criticise any of them
unfairly; If vc do criticise at all hereafter, it shall be mod
estly to suggest something that will benefit our friends. It
is impossible to notice all our exchanges, but we shall quit
each one in a friendly manner.
Several interesting articles enliven the pages of Student
Life and give the paper the appenrauce of being a lively, en
The University Review from Kansas comes filled with in
teresting articles. It also contains much news from its own
University, which shows a lively interest in the students.
We arc proad to welcome as one of our new exchanges the
Vassar Miscellany. In the review of this journal one readily
recognizes its literary merit and high standing ns a college pa
per. The College Chips contains articles both short and sweet.
The one most worthy of mention is an extract from an ad
dress by Prcs. Adams before the students of Cornell Univer
sity. The Rockjord Seminary Magazine has, we think, an excel
lent exchange column. Just enough wit and fun is mingled
with the serious to make it very interesting. Real fun is de
sirable in all papers.
'Martin Chulzzlewif'is reviewed in the College Index. The
writer has treated the novel with jnsticc in her article, and if
more productions of the kind could grace our college papers
it would greatly improve them.
Hamilton College Monthly is another prominent example of
the capability of woman in the literary line. It would take
too much time to recount all the articles -worthy of attention.
Suffice it is to say there are many of them, and the whole pa
per is worth reading.
Among the articles of most interest in the Sibyl arc the
dlass poems . These are all very pleasing and show poetical
We arc sorry this paper does not come to us oftcner,
but when it does come, it is well filled and is a standing mon
ument or what girls can do.
The De Pauw Monthly comes in a new and suggestive cov
er. This, however, is not the chief attraction. We find
much that is well written and worth reading. Might we sug
gest however, that larger type would render the appearance
of the paper more attractive?
As it usual, the Dartmouth contains much that is interest
ing and instructive. A great deal of space is occupied with
the Memoranda Alumnorum, which cannot surprise us when
we see the honorable positions held by many of Dartmouth's
graduates. We are pleased to learn that the Superintendent
ol J'ublic Instruction of our own state is a graduate of that
Nearly all of our exchanges are exchanging Christmas and
New Year gushings. At this time of the year above all oth
ers, even the Niagara Index man can afford to put all harsh
criticisms aside, and join in pleasant wishes and kind greet
ings to all. We most heartily join with you in wishing our
friends a happy new year. Let us hope that the ensuing
year may see nothing but peace and good will (Among our ex-changes,
Bethany Collegian, the essay is surely a harbinger of much
energy yet to be developed in the writer.
The Notre Dame Scholastic contains an unusually large
number of good articlcs,it seems to us. They arc all inter
esting, and some, instructive.
The biography of Hacon in the Richmond Messenger shows
reading and thought. Such a contributor as the author of the
article is an acquisition to any paper.
The Hesperus contains several interesting articles, among
them a glowing description of Colorado. Wc can endorse
those sentiments from a year's experience in the state.
College Chips contains an article on the "Advantages of a
classical education," and one on "Practical Education," both
quite lc.igthy. The paper also contains several shorter arti
cles, all worthy of notice.
The exchange column of the Lincolnian contains quite ,a
lengthy article quoted from the University Voice, Woostcr,
Ohio. The article is a humorous explanation of the evolu
tion of mathematical science and is worth reading.
The Freshmen arc in a quandary. They do not know
whether a class hat or pin would most conclusively show the
world that they arc Freshmen. Wc would say that nothing is
necessary. People can always tell a Freshman by his looks-
In the College Student wc find a biography of General Hum
phreys of Civil War fame. The article is written by an hon
orary member of one of the literary societies of the college,
and pays glowing tribute to another of those brave heroes
who served their country so nobly.
A review of the life and some of the writings of Jean Inge
low graces the pages of the Northwestern. The paper contains
a number of other articles which arc very interesting, but this
one is especially so to us. The Northwestern is always wel
come to our table, wc recognize in it a paper of true merit.
The Christmas number of the Yale Record comes replete
with everything in the literary line to contribute to the gen
eral joy of the Xmas holidays. Every number of this journal
serves more and more to maintain the well known reputation
of old Yale, which we are now to rank among our leading
universities, instead of colleges.
.Wc find in the Holcad a "Letter from one of last year's
graduates who lately joined the army of teachers." Of course
wc have too much good sense to accept the letter as bona fide
but it seems to us that the space occupied by it is wasted.
Real fun is desirable, and real wit especially so, but we can
see neither in this article and think that all productions of
this sort 'should be left out of our journals.
The Ariel contains a great deal about the Freshmen and
Sophomore classes which is not understood by outsiders. No
doubt it is very entertaining to the students who are acquaint
ed with the details, but it occurs to us that if less space were
taken up with" such controversies and more with literary mat
terit would be better for the paper. Possibly, however, it
takes as much literary talent to write up a cane rush as some
article of more importance.
