A larger attendance was present at vespers last evening than one would expect from the bad weather. The congregation, however, consisted chiefly of Cambridge citizens, as the approaching mid-years prevented many students from coming. After the introductory prayer by Dr. F. G. Peabody, the choir sang the selection "Lovely appeared over the Mountains," from Gounod's Redemption. The for thieth Psalm was read, and Shelley's "Christian, the Evening waits before Thee," was sung. Rev. Dr. McKenzie spoke briefly of the importance of developing our spiritual natures. He alluded to the religious lives lead by earlier members of the University, and exhorted his hearers to profit by their example. His words were earnest, and those who were present were evidently impressed with his remarks. Mr. Karl S. Hackett, of the class of '91, was the soloist, and rendered with pleasing effect Campana's "From the Depths of our Contrition."
