1 The second number of the University Studies
has just appeared. It contains three able articles,
written respectively by Professors Bennett, Sherman
and Rachel Lloyd.
As yet the University Studies are only an exper
iment; but judging from the reception given the firs:
number and the merits of the second, the office of
the Studies will be filled to the utmost satisfaction.
The Studies will be one of the principal means, to
direct the attention of the educational world toward

able during the present year to complete the armory
and fit up the gymnasium. If this becomes possible

few clippings are made, the editors must strive to the
utmost to prepare sufficient copy of satisfactory merit
for each issue. Of necessity the work is hastily done,
