The Harvard Monthly.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The list of contributors to the November number of the Monthly is short, but the contributions are correspondingly long. The opening article is by President Eliot on the "Enlargement of Gore Hall." It sets forth the needs of the university in the shape of better accommodations-needs which are constantly growing more preasing. The president fully justifies the action of the students in appealing for help to the graduates and friends of the university.

"A Struggle with Fate," by Mr. M. O. Wilcox is a smoothly written story of excellence in the descriptions. The closing passage, portraying the vast snow covered plain and the bursting into flame of Ornoff's love, is notably effective. The story might be accused of a tendency towards sensationalism, but not sufficiently to detract from its merits.

Mr. Norman Hapgood's "Mallock and the Positivists" is a careful study giving evidence of thorough appreciation of the subject treated. Its abstract character will, however, perhaps frighten away languid readers and fail to bring it the notice of which it is worthy.

Mr. McCulloch's "Antinous" is a long poem describing the death of Hadrian's beautiful favorite. It contains several good passages. Antinous' weary waiting, his last ride and death are striking.

The number contains two other pieces of verse of which Mr. Moody's "Serf's Secret" is a pleasing trifle.

The editorials deal with athletics and the relation of collegiate to graduate study, A slight change in the makeup of the number is noticed in the heading of the right hand pages which are now inscribed with the title of the article appearing below instead of bearing the name of the magazine.
