The two leading articles of the number are "Hawaii and its Annexation" by Freeman Snow and "Thomas Hardy's Works" by J. G. Cooke. Both are excellent. The former is a brief history of Hawaii in modern time; and a consideration of the advantages and the disadvantages incumbent upon its annexation to the United States. It is interesting and gives the render a clear idea of the whose Hawaian question. "Thomas Hardy's Works" is a somewhat detailed study of the style and peculiarites of Thomas Hardy with more particular treatment of his last work, "Tess of the D'rUbervilles." The poetry of the number is below the average. The editorial on the methods of awarding scholarships is straight forward and reasonable, and the plans suggested certainly seem preferable to the methods now adopted.
