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 characterization. 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 ground. : 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. Why not subscribe to the Tar Heel, the Athletic organ ? The February number of the N. C. Uhiversity Maga,2ine con tains a full issue of unusually in teresting reading matter, his torical, literary and poetical. " The sketch of the life of Judge William B. Rodman is of special interest to members of the Law Class, and others interested in the Biography of the North Carolina Jurist. I We like the plear cut literary style of the article "A Critical Contrast of Carlyle, Macauley and DeQuincey characterizeng them Respectfully as a pessemist, an op timist and a hidonist. The son net "Heart Thoughts" and the poem "Blue and White" are of high merit. Poetical genius is not "" wanting among University students. s "Luther's Translation of the Bible" is an entertaining article showing the literary influence of Luther's German version .of the Bible, creating a literary form which still maintains itself as the language of culture in Germany. The editors deserve much cred it for the successful management of the Magazine, and are to be congratulated for having estab lished for it such an enviable rep utation. We are justly proud of of our magazine. A PASTEL. 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 came the dreary notes from a cor net and accordion as they wheez ed out "After the Ball" I thought again glanced up again at the window and wondered who were the happier! Those that delight in the mathematical ex actness of each note studied so by a master as to give forth all that lay within, or those who car ed merely for an inexact jingle of time? Who? E. PHILOLOGICAL CLUB. The regular monthly meeting of the club was held at the rooms of Prof. Tol man on Friday even ing, March 2nd, having been postponed one week. The fol lowing papers were read-1 "A possible Ancient Persian, original of Ezra, I, 46, " by Prof. Tolman. Cyclostyle copies of the version proposed were furnished t h e members and the reading justifi ed in each case by comparison with the Ancient Persian inscrip tions translated in Prof. Tolman's work, "A guide to the Old Per sian Inscriptions." 2d. "Some Studies in the ac tion of Persians" by Mr. Pugh, commenting specially on the rare words, words of Greek origin," diminutives, colloqual i s s ue s, ; proverbs and metoporia, etc. .2d.' Does the Saturnian verse of Naevius show an advance be yond that of Livius Andronicus ? By Prof. Harrington. INTER-SOCIETY DEBATE. 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 ative. The contest was in the Dialec tic Hall which was filled to its uttermost capacity. The question was Very ably dis cussed on both sides, but the su perior array of the facts present 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 features, '
