We must request those of our readers who use our columns for the insertion of notices of meetings, dinners, etc., to exercise a little more care in making these notices as short and to the point as circumstances will permit. The notices are not collected from the box at Leavitt and Peirce's until nine o'clock every evening. The paper for the following day is all made up by that hour, and it is a great inconvenience to the managing editor to find a string of notices of absolutely unnecessary length crowding out one of the other articles, and upsetting the form which is ready for the press. Most of the notices can be written in a few lines, whereas we often receive them full of superfluous words and sentences, making enough for half a column, and giving us the choice of cutting them down or leaving them out-and we wish to do neither. We want the CRIMSON to be a convenience and a help to our readers; but we shall feel greatly obliged if they, in return, will use a little consideration and not send us in twenty lines what they could just as well say in ten.
