ALTHOUGH very old, that story about Mr. Malum is worth repeating:- A friend, meeting Mr. Malum at a famous watering place, asked him if he enjoyed sea bathing. "No; the doctor has forbidden my going into the water." "Then you are malum prohibitum." Not relishing the joke, Malum retorted, "That don't hold good, for my sister bathes every day." "So much the worse, for she is malum in se."

WILL the writer who favors us with such verses, in future send them elsewhere? -

"There was an abject family

Travelling o'er the road,

Surely they were beggarly,

For they had no abode."

A FRESHMAN had occasion to visit the cellar in the south entry of Weld a week or two ago. On attempting to return he met with an unexpected obstacle. He pushed against the door at the head of the stairs, and found that it refused to open. He felt for the knob, and attempted to turn it, but it merely slipped around without catching the latch. The horrible thought flashed upon him that the latch had broken and that he was locked up for the night. It was past eight o' clock on Saturday evening, and the passers-by were few and far between. With the calmness of desperation, he took off his rubbers and backed up against the door. He tried in vain to break it open. Then he kicked with his right foot till he was tired. Then with his left. Then he shouted till the whole entry reverberated. Finally, he heard steps hurrying in response to his cries; a hand touched the knob outside, and the door opened inward, nearly knocking him down stairs. The Freshman saw his mistake, and, gathering up his rubbers, silently stole away without making any explanations. His residence, in the middle entry of Thayer, had rendered him unable to appreciate the possibility of the door's opening inward.

MR. A. L. LINCOLN has taken charge of one section of the Freshman class, and not the last three sections, as stated in the last number of the Magenta.

THE following men, under the coaching of W. J. Otis, L. S. S., are hard at work in the Gymnasium, for the Freshman Crew: Messrs. Bacon, Brett. Harwood, King, LeMoine, Martin, Morgan, Page, Patton, Perry, Taylor, and Wiley. Any six of the above will make a strong crew, and ought to promise well for the Regatta.

OUR goody entered the room the other morning, and, approaching us, said in a mysterious manner, -

"Please, sir, the key to this room has fits."

"Indeed," said we, considerably astonished.

"Yes," said she, "sometimes it fits the lock and sometimes it does n't."
