The Advocate.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Advocate out today is the last issue of the '98 board. Beyond that body's graceful farewell, there is nothing noticeable in the editorials but another variation, hardly original, upon a certain out-worn theme that the college as a whole wants to leave alone.

F. M. Alger's "The Snapping of the Bow-String" is suggestive in parts of Thomas Hardy. Its rustic coloring, its imaginative interpretation of external nature is quite masterful; only when the story analyses powerful human emotion and its results, is unconvincingness approached. Then it tends either to exaggeration or melodrama. If R. P. Bellow's "The Hoaxing of Truesdale Bynner" is more facile and interesting, as literature it promises less for the writer's future. But both stories have an atmosphere of serious literary intention that the Advocate would do well to cultivate more.
