We have been sorry to see, at
some of the recent entertainments
in Gerrard Hall, that the behavior of
the students has been such as to ex
cite comment. We recognize, of
course that no impoliteness is
meant and that it has not been done
in a rowdy, rough spirit. Rather
has it been done through the feeling
that we are at home and can afford
to amuse ourselves as we see fit.
Nor do we wish to be understood
as censuring" a good Matured -joke
on fellow students but"f when the
carelessness extends so far as to
fail to notice a lady walking up the
aisle, and the noise of the applause
and whistling is kept up, the lady,
of course, feels embarrassed and
be the intention what
may, the act becomes impolite, and
we hope that, hereafter, nothing
more of the kind will happen.

For a long time we have talked
and thought of a Dramatic Club. !
But it is only lately that any orga
nized effort has been made in that
direction. And the result of that
effort has been both ; gratifying
to the Club and of interest to the
The success of the Club, in their
first effort, has clearly demon
strated the fact that we. have much
ability and talent among us and
that it soon will become one of the
most popular branches of bur col
lege life. And as such we think it
deserves recognition on our Com
mencement -programme. To the
great majority of our visitors, ; it
would be more intesesting than any
other form of entertainment we
could offer them.
oo we nope tnose wno arrange
such things, will give it their con
sideration, and endeavor to give the
Club the recognition they deserve
For some reason, which we have
never understood, many of the chairs
in the Library have been chained to
the floor beside the tables, thereby,
in our opinion, diminishing the com
fort and convenience of students and
If a man wishes to work, is it not
reasonable to suppose that be is
best able to decide how and where,
in the Library, he can do that work
to the best advantage and with the
greatest degree of comfort.?
If he wishes only to read, sure
ly he can do so better in an alcove
or corner than chained in the.mid-
dle of the room, where he is apt to
be interrupted and annoyed by those
passing in and out of the room.
In cold weather, it is not only an in-
convenience, Dut a discomfort, to
be compelled to sit away from
the stoves, and in warm weather
much pleasanter to be near an open
window, where fresh air could also be
enjoyed, than to be uncomfortably
Chained in the centre of the room.
Let us hope, then, that the fetters
will be loosed, so that one may en
joy the advantages of the Library
according to his own pleasure and
The PhiosoPhical Society.
In pursuance of a call a number of
students met in the English Room
for the purpose of forming a club
for the discussion of philosophical
and psychological problems. Dr.
Williams being called -to the chair
expressed his gratification at such a
voluntary expression of the philoso
phical spirit in the Univerity. .
A constitution containing the fol
fowing was then adopted.

Ward's New Restaurant,
Opposite Pritchard's Store is the headquar

at all hours. Few Regular table boarders
can be accomodated.
Four years ago Psychology and
Philosophy were considered, by the
majority of students as subjects pu
into the curiculum to prevent men
from graduating. No benefit - was
to be derived from such work bu
instead, it tended to make one dis
satisfied and skeptical.
This is changing; there is grow
ing up among thoughtful men of the
University men a genuine apprecia
tion of the benefit to be obtained
from such courses. Men no longer
regard-them as stumbling blocks, but
rather as the climax to the college
It has been seen that what is most
essential in after life is their pur
pose a knowledge of self and those
with whom we come in contact.
The formation of a Club, whose aim
it will be to advance original think
ing has given this philosophical
spirit a permanent place in our life
This Club will serve as a com
mon meeting ground for all thinking
men and as such will serve to widen
and to make more lasting the ideas
of all. But unless men come to the
meetings with the subject of the
evening well in hand the Club will
all short of the purpose for which
it was formed. Its life is discus
sion-and by this alone can it live.
On and after March 1st 1896 my books
will be closed, and I will sell goods for
Cash, and CASH ONLY. If you do not
like to be refused credit don't ask for it.
Positively I will credit no one, friend or
foe, for one cent worth of goods under any
circumstances. i .
To save that little reminder call at once
and settle up, I mean what I say, I shall
sell goods cheap for cash, giving my cus
tomers the beuefit of " Low Cash Prices."

A Wonderful Invention
Zoology teaches that the hairs of the head
are hollow, and contain an oil that gives
them life. In clipping the hair with scis
sors, this hollow is left open, and the hair
loses its life-giving properties.
I have a Machine named the Singeing Ma
chine, which removes the hair and at the
same time closes up the hollow, causing the
hair to retain its life-giving properties, and
therefore stopping- the hair from falling out
or dying, and giving It a soft growth.
Call ana examine this machine and nave
your hair singed.
Special attention jriven to dressing La
dies' hair. Cutting done with exquisite and
srtistis skill by the old University Barber
of twenty years' experience.
The singing machine is highly recoin
mended by scientists throughout the country.
