probability leave the impression on
the Professor that it is due to care

got up and went out. Now it doesn't
take much knowledge of human na
ture to tell a man that he might as
well be trying to beat knowledge
into a row of stumps as into the
heads of a crowd of boys after the
bell has rung and they are thinkiug
of nothing but being marked absent
on the next class or being late at
dinner, as the case may be. If the
Professor has anything very import
ant to tell the class he had better
keep it till next time. Of course,
courtesy would make the class sit
quietly and politely till the Profes
sor saw fit to dismiss them; but,
when courtesy is taken advantage ,
of by the Professor to deliver a lect
ure on Immorality in College Life,
or the Relation of Psychology to
Literature, after the bell rings,
then it ceases to become a virtue,
and the only thing that can be done
by the class is to quietly leave the
scene of action.
A great manv of the students do
not seem to recognize the advanta
ges tending to general culture
which are afforded here by the vari
ous clubs and societies. As a gen
eral rule, those who attend the
meetings of the Historical Society
are the ones who go to the Philolog
ical Club, the Scientific Society,
etc.: that is to say, there are some
men who make it a rule to avail
themselves of every opportunity of
this kind to add something to then
store of information, while there are
others who never avail themselves
of any such opportunities.
The papers' that are read in tnese
societies, represent hours and days
and sometimes even months of study
oofthe part of those by whom they
are prepared ; and by hearing these
papers read one may gain a great
deal of information which he would,
not gain elsewhere without a great
amount of work on his own a n.
The meetings are usually short, and
he time that is lost in attending
them is a mere trifle as compared w
the benefit to be derived therefrom.
