We have received the Setiilum, from Lansing, Mich. II
js a neat paper but the matter contained is not particularly
The Ihireau ami Platform has been received. It is a
paper devoted to securing dates for eminent divines like Rev.
Bill Nye, Riv. Eli Perkins and other gentlemen to lecture ,ln '
citics throughout the country.
The September number of the Muhlenberg contains many
features. The editorial dcpaituicnt is good. An improve
ment would be made by filling the last page with original
matter instead of the worm-eaten chestnuts that arc found
The Pulse, published at Grinnell, la., has been received.
Tt contains a two-page love story similar to those printed on
the patent side of country newspapers. Its editors can never
hope to elevate the newspaper profession by running such
trash. One or two departments arc excellent.
The Notre Dame Scholastic is at hand. As a paper con
taining good fatherly advice to the kindergartens connected
with that institution it is a great success, but as a real live
college paper it is a dismal failure. Let it be said to the
credit of the students that the students are not responsible
for its publication.
The Kansas Univcrsit) Review publishes a "pledge" in its
September number which is interesting even to a pcison at
this distance from the scene. It is an agreement on the part
of the lady fraternity members not to initiate, pledge or in
vite any girl to join their fraternities until she has been in
attendance at school for three months. It look as though
even sorority gets to be too much of a good thing once in a
while. How strange!
The Washburn Argo has arrived. We arc glad to note
that it is to be made a semi-monthly instead of a monthly.
The local columns are well hilled with news of interest to
Washburn students. The business manager, however,
should be bounced indiscriminately. Any man who will let
advertisers bulldoze him into running their display advertise
ments in with the leading matter has no business in the
capacity of business manager.
Our Brother in Black" K the subject of an interesting
article in the Athena-urn, published at West Virginia state
univeisily. The language is somewhat faulty and some of
the figures arc a little strained. But the essay is a discussion
of a live subject, a. step which should be encouraged. The
writer favors the separating of the negro from the white and
his removal to a section which shall be formed fiom parts of
Texas and Louisiana. '1 here they are to live and govern
themselves as a state and(have their congicssional rcpresen
tatiou as other states.
Matleis arc becoming more complicated than ever at
Lawrence, Kansas. During the greater part of last year a
bitter factional fight occupied the attention of the students.
Each faction had a paper, the Courier and Times respectively,
Shortly before Commencement steps were taken to conciliate
the two elements and it was thought the attempt was success
ful. At any rate a paper from that institution was received
here which contained a vivid description of the pow-wow
which was held, and assuring outsiders that the conflict was
ended. Eaily that week the University A'ansan was received
at this office. It contained an editorial stating that the
Times and Courier had been consolidated and that in the
future the A'ansan would take the place of those two papcr.
Later in the week, however, a Courier, bearing the date of
September 20, arrived. It is the same paper as of old. If
the students at Lawrence conduct funerals and bury the
hatchet, why don't they bury it so deep that the snag end of
