The Lampoon.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The best feature of the Christmas Lampoon lies in its illustrations, which are exceptionally good. A picture of the Boston coach arriving in Cambridge on Christmas Day fifty years ago, and the centre page drawing by C. M. Bill '00 are the best of these. The chief fault with the short stories and jokes is that they are based upon affairs which have no direct connection with the College. The Death of Sir Cuttenthrust, A Legend of the Third Crusade, starts ambitiously, but is not sustained and falls flat at the end. It is well set off, however, by marginal drawings. An article of unusual merit is that entitled "The Bell's Old Memories," which deals with the traditions of the College, and displays at times qualities of real humor. Of the two editorials, that on the Hollidays is much the better and seems inspired by the Christmas season. The other on "Life" appears far-fetched.
