Five members of the sophomore class of Bowdoin College have just been indefinitely suspended for hazing.

There are nineteen candidates for the Yale nine - among them Camp, Hubbard, Hopkins and Jones of last year's team.

"Harvards' insolent position" on the race question, is the pleasant phrase of the Yale correspondent of the Boston Transcript.

Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Lehigh, Cornell and Amherst now have gymnasiums arranged according to the plans of Dr. Sargent.

Prof. Gurney will be at University 20, Wednesday, Feb. 7, and Thursday, Feb. 8, at 2 P. M., to meet members of his sections who may desire to ask questions.

"Time will tell," says the News, impressively, "whether Harvard or Yale is to furnish the first practical demonstration of the fact that her dormitories are death traps."

If any one doubts that our young men in college are not straining every nerve to finish their educations and fit themselves for the active duties of life, let them ponder over the fact that the deep theme to be written upon by the sophomores of Harvard College is, "The Comparative Merits of Base-Ball and Foot-Ball." - [Ex.

Next month will be published the second part of Prof. Francis J. Child's work, "The English and Scottish Popular Ballads," the first of which has just appeared. Each ballad has a carefully prepared preface by the editor, or one of his contributors, excepting in the case of those ballads which the English have in common with other nations. And of these an account is appended of all related traditions. A general introduction, a careful glossary and full indices will be provided. The edition is printed on large paper, and limited to 1000 copies.
