tOW that the state fair has been located and The
l Hesperian editors elected, affairs may be ex
pected to resume their normal condition.
vt j'OR two reasons we are a lfttlc late this issue J
vl the present board of editors was not elected un
til about a week before the paper was due; and we
felt inclined, since we could not be on time, to be
another day behind in order that we migot give full
account of the Palladian and inter-society contests.
In the future we shall endeavor to be on time and
hope that hereafter we will not be compelled to ask

to think that the project has been indefinitely
postponed. What can be the matter with the cul

plenty of money with which to engage in any such
venture. But perhaps they do not wish to under
take anything so common place; or did they expect
that we were going to fall upon them and, weeping
bitter tears of repentance, invite them back again?

their assistance they have been laboring under a
delusion, as one may infer from a few resolutions in

'v&.J some of the scientific students to sneer at the
efforts made by the literary and classical depart
ments. This should not be. The scientific course
has received more attention than any other from the
powers that be. There aie two buildings set apart
for it. Considerable money has been expended in
fitting up these buildings. The scientific students
while enjoying all their privileges should not look
down upon less favored humanity. Since the scien
tific and military departments are so well provided
for, we believe that the other departments should
receive some small amount of attention. The classi
cal department is confined to two or three small
recitation rooms. We have a classical society which
is compelled to meet in a recitation room. If this
