The Christmas number of the Lampoon is issued to-day, and certainly deserves more than passing notice. It is very evident that the editors have undertaken to make the number unusually attractive and entertaining, and the real success of their efforts must be gratifying to them and to the college. In reading matter and illustration, the Christmas Lampoon excels all previous numbers of the present year, and in some respects, at least, is superior to the best numbers that we have seen of former years. General attention will undoubtedly be directed toward the double-page drawing, which, while being well conceived, is also exceedingly well executed, the whole sketch having a truly artistic appearance.
But this Lampoon is exceedingly pleasing to us, - we believe it will be so to the college, - because from cover to cover, there appears not the slightest reference to the "Crime's Own."
