Notice is called in another column to the fact that the time during which the telegraph office in Lyceum Building is open, will be lengthened, and that the office will also be open on Sunday for a short time. We are very glad to see this step toward reform in the management of the telegraph in Cambridge. The change will be of great advantage to the public and especially to men of the college who are so often obliged to use this means of communication.
While this innovation is taking place it may not be out of the way for us to suggest that a radical reform should take place in the matter of delivering messages. This department should be attended to as carefully as that of transmission. A case has come to our notice, in which a student dangerously ill received a message from his family, which was not delivered until six hours after it had reached Cambridge.
