The Co-operative Society.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Co-operative Society has passed a very successful year under the new system of conducting business adopted last fall. The business has increased from $37,000 in 1886-87 to about $60,000 in 1887-88. It is probable that there will be a moderate surplus to divide next fall-how large cannot now be told. Plans are under consideration for enlarging some departments, especially that of furniture. Circulars have been sent to all seniors asking them to let the society have charge of the selling of any furniture of which they may wish to dispose. The furniture will be repaired, stored, and sold next fall at as favorable terms as possible This will be a great convenience both for the sellers and buyers and should have the assistance of all members it is desirable also that the text-book department should be enlarged. Efforts have been made as far as possible to obtain for the society the exclusive sale of certain text-books. Of course the success of this plan depends largely on the willingness of the instructors to give exclusive information. As it is an important object for the students to get their books as cheaply as possible, it is hoped that instructors will aid the plan as much as they can. The store will remain open until August 8 for the benefit of students at the summer schools.
