The Lampoon.

The number of the Lampoon which is issued today is decidedly attractive. As usual, the illustrations are the distinctive feature while the written articles are of far less uniform excellence. The cover drawing is artistic, though with little claim to originality. The centre page and a black-and-white by R. Edwards are both well executed, the former being especially pleasing for its freedom and unconventionality. Of the articles, the cleverest are the specimen lecture and "Life in the Chem. Lab."
