THE folly and evils of reckless overwork have within the past few weeks been brought forcibly to the notice of every student. We need not comment upon the sadness of the cases in question, but the lesson they contain cannot be too strongly emphasized. This is the season when hard work is most fatiguing, and yet most necessary. An ambitious student, trusting to the approaching vacation for rest and recovery, is tempted to strain every nerve, and, before he is hardly conscious of his danger, he may do himself irreparable injury. Even the strongest constitution and the most faithful exercise will not enable a man persistently to deprive his mind of needful rest; and if he gives to study the hours which belong to sleep, he must sooner or later break down.
