THE SHAKESPERE CLUB.
The Shakespere Club met in
its usual place Jast Tuesday night
to discuss Othello.
Dr. Hume made some very in
teresting remarks on the plot and
C. Ellis, of '94, read a paper
on "Sources of Othello." Shakes
pere drew largely from an Ital
ian novel of the - 16th century;
He had different characters and
different motives, the former of
which he remodeled. It is cor
rect in general historical coloring
and may have had a real back
The president read extracts
from papers by Mr. Hudgens, on
"Scenery of Venice and discus
sion of Othello," and by Mr. Van
Ioppenon "Jealousy of Othello."
Swink, '94, read a paper on
"Desdemona and Amelia, her
fail." He traced the story of
Desdemona' s love and described
her character and made a strong
comparison of the noble Desde
mona' s idea with this simple ple
bian Amelia. Moral of the play,
purity as a poet, nobility as real,
were touched upon.
Extracts were read from a pa
per, by Mr. Sawyer, on "Amelia
as a. fail." Mr. Barnes, '94, read j
a paper on "Desdemona." j
A sonnet on "Desdemona, " by j
Mr. T. B. Lee, was read by Dr. j
Hume, the president of the Club.
Also one from Mr. L. C. Van
Noppen. Both were very fine
indeed. Attention was called to
papers by Messrs. Brawley, Gil
lespie, Rawlins and Bingham.
Papers were read by Mr. Smith,
'94, on "Interpretation of Iago
by actors," and Mr. Oldham, '94,
on "Superstition in the Play,"
and by Horne, '95, on "Contrast
in Othello in metre diction, char
acterization and scenes." The
latter was pronounced by Dr.
Hume "very interesting and orig
inal." Dr. Winston entertained the
Club with a few remarks on "The
Play," treating the main charac
ters. Only one touch of humanity
seen in Iago. The whole play is
natural. . It must be so.
The meeting was even more
interesting than usual.

Musical strains came upon the
ear wildly moaned the deep
tones of the violin broken in
on the by the ripple of the pi
ano. Sweet came the gentle
pleading in return. I- leaned on
the picket fence and listened
carried away in my dream, I
forgot my pipe enchanted I
stood and watched the varying
shadows on the curtain above.
It caused a quiet feeling to
come over me and when all was
over, I turned to go, to be aroused
from my reverie by other music.
Across the way from a cabin door

The fifth Inter-Society debate
came off on Thursday night, Feb.
22nd resulting in a victory for the
Dialectic Society. :. . '
,The query for debate was:
"Resolved that Hawaii should be
admitted into the United States. ' '
The Phi Society represented by
Messrs. . Horne and Alexander
had the affirmative, the Di So
ciety, represented by Messrs.
Dockery, S. and Swink the neg

tic Hall which was filled to its
The question was Very ably dis
cussed on both sides, but the su

ed by the negative side justified
the judges, -Dr. Winston, Dr.
Crowell of Trinity College and
Rev. Mr Watson of Chapell Hill,
in deciding in its favor.
We are glad to see these con
tests so well kept up, for they are
a feature of the literary work
that should not be permitted to
die away as they have threatened
to do. These contests should
take place more freqently than
they have done for the past year,
and if such were the case, such a
lamentable lack of interest in so
ciety work would not be shown.
By better preparation by the
masses of the students, these de
bates could be made prominent
