on "Modern Education. " He
clared that the nineteenth cen

a marked degree in respect to
ucation. The difference is based
on faith in the power of educa-
i. Its University. Education
recognized as a right inherent
citizenship, along with the

The speaker expressed the hope
that North Carolina might be
come an educational centre for
the South, with the biggest and
best University, A. & M. College,
and Denominational colleges in
the whole South.
It was a clear, strong, lucid,
edifying effort, such as was char
acteristic of Dr. Winston, and in
his best vein, and those who know
of his fine powers as an entertain
ing and scholarly talker know
what that implies. The audience
was highly delighted and edified.
Y. M. C. A.
The association received a visit
from Mr. F. S. Brockman, Col
lege Secretary of the Internation
al Committee, on last Sunday. His
address to the students in the after
noon on the Students'; 'Volunteer
Movement',' was well attended, as
deserved such an excellent talk.
In it he set forth the crying need
of the foreign field, and urged
that this call should be considered
by every Christian college man.
He also showed that this work
demanded educated men, as ob
stacles had to be overcome that
required thought. -
The attendance at the 8 o'clock
service was not so large as it
would have have been had the
weather been better. His address
on the "College Department of
the Young Mens' Christian Asso
ciation" was an able effort, clear
ly setting forth the progress of the
work, the great good it has done
and is doing now, and how much
it influences the college life of to
day" Dr. Williams was so much im
pressed with the address that he
asked permission to say a few
words in commendation, which
he did, also expressing his hearty
sympathy with young men and
this great movement in which
they were interested;

The Shakespear Club held its
monthly meeting on Tuesday,
January 30. This Club has been
in existence and very flourishing
for nine years. Its name doest
not indicate all the range and va
riety of its work. For example,
we were impressed in the last-j
meeting by the introduction of a
paper on "The Antigone of Soph
ocles," by Mr. J. Canada, '96, an
excellent address on the dramatic
element in the Iliad and the "Ev
olution of Greek Tragedy,'.' by
Dr. Tolman, and very interesting
remarks by Dr. Hume, the presi
dent of the Club, on the "Revi
val of Greek Drama on the Pa
This Clnb aims to discuss dra
matic work generally, of course,
with special reference to the
Shakesperian form and method.
"Marlowe, The" Man and his
Works," was discussed by Mr. C.
VanNoppen, '94, and "Ben John
son's Learning and Classical
Method in the Alchemist," was
treated by Mr. T. B. Lee, '94.
Dr. Hume read a paper on "John
son's Characteristics, ' ' referring
to the lack of great female char
acters in his coverings.
"The Parasite, as a type found
in the ancient and modern
drama, ' ' was presented in extracts j 2-
from long papers, by Mr. H.
Home, and Mr. James Sawyer on
' 'Johnson's Volpone. "
President Winston paid a trib
ute to the Club, and spoke on the
"Universality of the thought of
the great masters."
As usual, it was a very inter
esting and instructive meeting.
The charm of the evening was
much enhanced by several ladies
who graced the occasion.
It is reported that a scheme for
a large school of physical culture
has been started by a number of
New York physicians. It is
planned to have a gymnasium
under the charge of Sandow large
enough to allow 5,000 people to
exercise at once.

GLEE CLUB . CONCERT.
On Friday night last, occurred
the annual mid-winter concert of
the University Glee Club. While
the performance was, ds a whole,
very creditable, yet there were
several -defects, which were in a
measure disappointing. There
seemed to be a certain amount of
uneasiness resting with the sing
ers, and this caused a strained
sympathy on the part of the audi
ence. Besides it was evident that
some had devoted a minimum of
time and trouble to memorizing
their parts. ;: Several most un
happy breaks were made by the
soloists. This will never do else
where than in Gerrard Hall, for
town houses, will not overlook
such short comings, and will
prove much sharper critics than
the interested people of Chapel
Hill. The programme, consist
ing of several familiar selections,
supplemented by some very pleas
ant and unique productions of
recent date, is given below.

themselves in these three selec
tions, and produced a very happy
impression. The singing of Mr.

peated applause, and the encored

forts. Mr. Lindsay, by combined
musical and acrobatic feats, so
