The famous open lilcrnry society of Princeton, the Whig,
is to have a new $40,000 hall.
The Nexus Letter and Pulse ol Iowa college have suc
cumbed to that grand law that in union there is strength.
Hence a new paper, the Unit, has come forth.
Every exchange thus lar icports encouraging increase in
every way in the attendance at their respective colleges.
Surely the future of America ought to he assured if this in

This editor wishes now to give expression to his surprise
at an article he read in the DcPau Adz of May last. The
writer of the article and an editor of a department had the
audacity to accuse the fraternities ol "cruelty" and of giving
vent to 'cruel hatred." It was indeed shocking hut yet
perhaps it was no more than was to he expected from a paper
that would dclilicrctcly insult a gentleman of the standing of
cx-Oovcrnor Crittenden as a means of excusing a wrong act.
The summer months have come and gone and with them
the long vacation; the fall and winter months arc coming on,
and with them that burdensome query. How shall the ex
change man make his columns original anil readable? How
much clipped matter shall he use, how many notices make,
how many and how harsh criticisms hurl, how many and how
great commaudations give? 'Tis such vexed questions that
weary the unused brain of the editor just from his vacation.
And what can he, poor lellow, do beneath their weight. He
can but yield and do his best.
In the first issue of the year the exchange editor has but
little material to work upon. It is true that many college
papers arc published during the entire summer and very fair
papers they arc too considering the season of the year, but
nevertheless, the disputes, the discussions, the criticisms, the
commendations, the friends, the enemies, the general run of
college affairs and papers has been well-nigh forgotten and
dropped. Old students have gone, new students have come,
college life for the year has not yet settled down. And so
the exchange man must rely much on his own verbosity, but
if he has none, what shall he do? Alas! 'tis not related.
This department had occasion in one issue ol last year to
call attention to how little reliance is to be placed on the ac
curacy of many items in some exchange columns. The Napa
Classic of California furnishes a good illustration of this in its
issue for September. It has an item as follows: "Madison
University of Wisconsin will hereafter be known as Colgate
University." One might almost suppose that a girl wrote
this item on account ol the manner in which the conclusion
has been jumped at. The .truth is that Madison or Colgate
University isjocatcd in New York and had its name changed
on account of the bequest of the millionaire of New York City.
Hut credit should be given where credit is due and the same
paper has the following item, which is correct; "A capital
punishment to be hugged to death."
$75 00 to $250.00 a month can be made working for us.
