SCENE, Senior Club. X. (who was a boy) looked pensive and sad. Y. (who was a girl) asked, "What are you thinking of?" X. Of my girl. Y. What makes you do so now? X. Your presence resembles her absence. Chorus. Oh! - Tripod.

SCENE, German Class. PROFESSOR (to a '78 Miss). What does enthaupten mean? '78 Miss. It means to behead a person. PROFESSOR. Then what does behaupten mean? '78 Miss. I should think that meant to put a head on him. - Cornell Era.

THE Virginia University Magazine has an article entitled "A Vade-M cum for Lovers" which is quite cleverly done. The author particularly recommends indirect and delicate flattery, and cites the following (!) as an example:-

"A lady once complained to him that her coffee was too sweet. He responded, with great gallantry, "Very naturally, Miss - , since it passes your lips ere it reaches your tongue!"

The editors append a note to the piece, in which they say:-

"We hardly deem it necessary to state to our lady readers, especially to those who know us, that we do not indorse the above sentiments referring to their insincerity, etc. We regard woman as the purest and most finished specimen of God's handiwork."

WE learn from the American Register that the famous yacht Enchantress is about to enter the lists against all comers, but not as the representative of America, or any American yachting-club. M. Loubat challenges the world fairly and squarely, upon his own account, to race for a cup or a work of art. M. Loubat has just officially announced to the Yacht Club of France that he has offered a cup worth $ 1,000 to the New York Yacht Club, to be sailed for, in open sea, on the second Thursday in October, 1876. The vessels are to be schooners, of 100 tons and over. The owner of the Enchantress is a member adjoint of the Conseil Maritime of the French Yacht Club.

THE execution of the poem entitled Mutation, in the Union College Spectator, is better than the average. We learn that Union College has decided on garnet for its color. There will now be no reason why they should not retain their magenta.

THE following is a quarterly allowance of poetry to the Oxford Undergraduate's Journal:-

"I've been Roaming.""I'VE been roaming in the woods,

Roaming 'mong the flowers,

Chasing butterflies and birds,

Through the sunny hours."

Thus she sang; her tangled hair

With honeysuckle braided,

And 'neath its scarlet clusters rare,

Two soft brown eyes were shaded.

"Come and roam again," said I,

"'Mong the purple heather."

And there I whispered her my love; -

Since then we've roamed together.

AROMA.THE expected games between the Sophomore Nines of Harvard and Yale will not take place, owing to the unwillingness of Harvard to play. - Yale Courant.

THE Yale Courant justly remarks that the advantages of co-education are made more evident by such notes as the following:-

"The conversation at the club where they talk metaphysics turned on the affections. Spake a Senior: "What do you know about love, Miss H.? Do you believe there is any such thing as love?" "O," says she, "you come around to my room some time, Mr. B., and we'll talk it over." - Michigan University Chronicle.
