The Society for Collegiate Instruction of Women is to be congratulated on the gratifying improvement, however small, of its prospects. It is true that the society is in debt the greater part for its new house, but the sum needed will doubtless soon be raised and the society be placed on a sound financial basis. The names of the well-known gentlemen and ladies who form the corporate body of the institution are a sufficient guarantee of its ultimate success. On the other hand, the odds against which the society has yet to struggle are great. The growing reputation of Boston University and Wellesley College is an important obstacle which cannot be disregarded. Any earnest attempt to offer greater educational advantages to women is worthy of praise. In spite of the inherent obstacles to its success, the society is slowly gaining ground, year by year, and we shall doubtless see it established strongly and permanently within a comparatively short time.
