A number of students were pleased to meet
Representative Corbin in the halls just preceeding
his departure for home. Every student who has
watched his course in regard to the University has
ample reason to thank Mr. Corbin for his services.
The University had no better or abler champion in
the entire house of representatives. That the Uni

reader. To Americans these lessons cannot, of course, be
brought home with the same force as to Russians, for an
American misses much of the reality of the lessons, and 01
the incidents illustrating them. Still, many of the teachings
contained in the book arc so broad as to include all mankind.
Patriotism, like grief, is of no nationality, and England,
America, and France, as well as Russia, may learn a lesson
on the duty of patriotism from the book, "Dead Souls." All
through the story there is'an undercurrent that at times be-
