"The other day I marked 98 deg. in the shade, my high-water mark. I happened to meet a neighbor ; so we mopped our brows at each other ; he told me he had just cleared 100 deg., and I went home a beaten man.

Vassar College is said to be in a very flourishing state this year. Over one hundred new students have altogether been received. These, together with the old students returning, swell the total number in attendance to a figure not reached in any previous year since 1877.

Yale is enthusiastic over the new freshman coxswain. The college papers speak highly of his work, as does the New Haven Register. Speaking of the race between the freshmen and the Scientific School in eight-oared boats, the New Haven correspondent of the Boston Journal says: "Contrary to all expectation, the freshmen won their race. The freshman coxswain, W. B. Goodwin of Biddeford, Me., will stand a good chance for university coxswain. He has had some experience at Exeter and weighs about one hundred pounds out of training. He steered remarkably well in yesterday's race. After the experience of last June, Yale will be glad to get a competent coxswain."

James Parton's new lecture is entitled "The Coming Man's Education." It begins: "I have in my mind's eye a glorious university, completely organized and equipped to afford an education such as the future man will be given. It looks not at all like Oxford or Cambridge, or even like Harvard. It looks more like a factory village situated in the midst of a finely cultivated farm of one thousand acres, with beautiful gardens and parks, the whole the centre of a thriving industry such as our factory villages might be, must be, shall and are just going to be, for man will not long be the submissive vassal that he is now," and so on.
