Bulletin No. 5 of the Agricultural Experiment Station is
out. It contains "Certain Injurious Insects of 1888," by
Lawrence Bruner, and is a good companion piece to Mr.
McMillans bulletin published one year ago. We arc pleased
to note that Mr. T. A. Williams receives credit fr assistance
rendered in the work. Bulletin No. 6 containing -'Reports
of Progress of Station" by II. H. Wing; "Field Experiments
and Observations for 1888," by Jared G. Smith, and "Meter
ological .Record for 1888," by DeWitt B. Brace is now in
the press. All of the bulletins issued by the station have
been of value and are worth preserving, which is more than
can be said of the bulletins issuc.l by some stations estab
lished under the Hatch bill.
The usefulness of the literary society is admitted by all
but there are some who do not back their opinion with work.
A literary society can live only so long as it does real literary
work. When it becomes a social club it ceases to be a
means of culture, or at least of the culture for which it exists.
Literary work can only be accomplished by patient toil.
There are, as yet, none of us who are able to appear on a
program creditably without previous preparation. This has
recently been made clear by actual experiment and a most
disastrous failure. When the members of any society get
he idea that they have such a superabundance of gray mat
ter that they can evolve sparkling gems of thought, corruscat
ing scintillations of wit and soul-satisfying truths all clothed
in the choicest rhetoric by simply opening their mouths they
arc destined to realize that "pride goeth before a fall."

'See the student in yon window
Burning now the midnight oil,
Late each night I see him working
Oh how hard the students toil."
"Well now I would like to know,
If that wasn't a lalla show,
But soon our joy will turn to sorrow
For I'm sure we'll flunk to-morrow."
'Tis sad to be a baud-man, and
With the band-men stand;
To watch the graceful waltzers, with
A tuba in his hand.
A large crowd listened to President Angel last Friday
night, the chapel being well filled.
