We have, however, a few kindly words of remonstrance to some persons recently arrived at college, who have not yet "learned the ropes." Be it known to them, that all persons studying in the alcoves of the library, have an intense curiosity to hear whatever is said in their neighborhood. Now some of the late arrivals have not yet acquired the courage to converse loud enough in the reading room to be distinctly heard. They communicate with each other in an audible murmur, which arouses the curiosity and interferes with the work of everybody near them, but gratifies the curiosity of no one. Consequently, there is a general suspense and impatience, which is very telling on the nervous force of some of the weaker students. We therefore beg those persons who have matters of sufficient importance to be communicated in the library, to speak aloud or not at all.
