PROSE AND POETRY.
Mr. Noyes, the English poet, who has made so successful a tour of the country, has chosen a subject for his address this evening which will attract hundreds of people. The war scares that periodically pervade the nations have many interesting phases, and to Mr. Noyes not the least interesting is their needlessness. But if "Militarism" does not invite you, then the assertion that Mr. Noyes's poetry has a spirit and movement which come from a story well-told is sure to draw you to his reading. As one of our professors has rightly remarked, he is among the few modern poets who have re-discovered the fact that poetry can tell a story and can be popular only when it does.
