Sweet maiden, why that pensive brow?
What sadness fills thy bosom now?
Can it be that eyes like thine
Should worship thus at Sorrow's shrine?
Blushing maiden, cheer thy heait;
Bid thy sorrows all depart.

When I scratched you oil the slate.
Then she with former 'pensive brow'

There arc few students who can make a two days trip and
capture a silken ringlet from some hard hearted metropolitan
lass. Matthcwson is one of them, however, so he says. In
quire, and he will, besides telling you the whole thing, invite

For some time the third year German class has been con
ducted on the plan of a class in a German university. No
lesson is given out, but each student brings his dictionary and
grammar and docs his study in the class, getting over as
much ground as possible. They all think they have a soft
The position of ye editor-in-chief has been much envied of
late by numerous representatives of the different classes, pro
vided they were responsible for no more than one issue. The
chief object seems to be, to express the gems of thought
which seem to lorm the essence of two or three years of ex
perience as a student. But under the present regime such a
course seems to be an impossibility. However, we thought
that they ought to have an opportunity to express themselves,
and accordingly a select few were apprised of the fact that a
few opinions, if couched in a neat and compact form, would
be acceptable. We had not foreseen the result of such a
short-sighted policy, or we would not have been so rash.. Out
of about three hundred and fifty opinions we have used the
following, but attaching the names, not daring to take to our

out a first class annual. L. M. R.
The library should be preeminently a library for the stu
dents; a library of reference, where students can pore over
the volumes, acquire a personal acquaintan e with the most
important works and authors. To do this they should have
free access to the alcoves, leaving the proper care of the books
to the students; in iacl the present system should be abolish
ed and the students put in possession of what was originally
purchased for them.- -C. S. P.
Well, you know, I don't just believe in this here society ex
clusiveness, where your social advantages are limited and
where every question concerning the University or the stu
dents are looked at with the same colored spectacles of socie
ty conservatism. I believe in class feeling, where the mem
bers of the same class can get together and have just a x
ping old time, and each not be compelled to think whether
the members of his society are getting enough honors or oc
cupying a prominent enough place. I'm in for a good' time.
