would not call him back from that land of light and joy to the dark shadows and tears of this sin-cursed world of ours."

The whole audience were deeply affected.

At the conclusion of Dr. Cattell's address, Rev. Dr. Belville, of Mauch Chunk, joined with the congregation in prayer. The 639th hymn was then sung. Dr. Wood, of Allentown, pronounced the benediction, and the procession was again formed and moved to the cemetery. On arriving at the cemetery the friends gathered about the burial place, and the last solemn funeral rites were performed. The coffin, covered with wreaths of immortelles, was carried to the grave, and just as the sinking sun threw its last beams over the slope of the cemetery hill, gilding the top of the small tree that stood by the grave side, the last remains of Professor Coffin were lowered to the earth; ashes to ashes, dust to dust.-Easton Free Press.

GENERAL COLLEGE NEWS.

-Yale has had a revision of College laws; some changes are as follows:-Winter term shortened one week, the Summer term two weeks; making the year 37 instead of 40 weeks. Students must be 15 years old for admittance, and a promise to submit to the authority of the corporation, takes the place of the "iron clad oath." Prohibitory rules with reference to theatres, billiards, &c., are repealed.—Ex.

Your billiard prohibition is repealed, is it? Well, ours isn't exactly repealed, but there is disagreement concerning it. The Students think it is repealed and the Faculty don't.

-One Senior offered his piano stool to an old clo' man for a dollar. Clo' man declined because he wouldn't throw in the piano. -Yale Record.

This reminds us of "Mr. Green."

-The College Courant has become the property of Prof. Henry N. Day, who is from this time forward to edit it, with the assistance of Mr. C. R. Dudey, a Yale graduate of the class of '71.-The Week.

We hope the Professor will cultivate the art of discoursing clearly. To the best of our knowledge, his "style" is a little obscure.

-Rutgers College has raised $2,000 toward sending a crew to next summer's regatta.-Ex.

Lafayette College has raised four dollars and sixty cents, but most of this will have to be put in a boat house.

-A Vassar Senior was lately caught smoking a cigar, and gave as her reason for the act, "it made it smell as if there was a man around."-Ex.

-We have on record the case of an enterprising individual who succeeded in removing a widow's weeds by mere force of moral suasion. He simply said, "wilt thou? O, wilt thou ?" And they wilted. Vassar Miscellany.

-Many persons-besides school boys and College Students-use the phrase, "He is a brick," without the least idea that it is supposed to be of classic origin! It is said that King Agesilaus, being asked by an embassador from Epirus, why they had no walls for Sparta, replied "We have." Pointing to his marshaled army, he said: "There are the walls of Sparta; every man you see is a brick."-Harper's Weekly.

—A combination of sentiment and matter of fact which pervades the western heart, shows itself in the following fine passage in the first chapter of a new novel: "All of a sudden the girl continued to sit on the sand, gazing on the briny deep, on whose heaving bosom the tall ships went merrily by freighted-ah! who can tell with how much of joy and sorrow, and pine, and lumber, and emigrants, and hopes and salt fish."-Ex.

is

-A student in complaining of his board, affirms that the bread so heavy that he can hear it strike the chair after swallowing it. -Ex.

-Miami University has abolished all prizes and honors.

-The co-education of the sexes is making remarkable headway in this country. Four Colleges in New England, among them the University of Vermont; Cornell University, in New York; and Swarthmore College, in Pennsylvania; Oberlin and Antioch Colleges, in Ohio; the State Universities of Indiana and Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa and Kansas, make no distinction on account of sex. Thus speaks President White of Cornell Universi

ty: "I have found that the co-education of the sexes has been fa-vorable to good order and discipline; that a mutual stimulating influence has been exerted on scholarship.-Cap and Gown.

-The twenty-sixth annual convention of the Zeta Psi fraternity met at Ithaca, January 1, with the Psi Chapter of Cornell. A good time was enjoyed by all present. The banquet took place at the Ithaca Hotel. Colonel Welch and son presented an elaborate bill of fare, which was served in the excellent style of their catering. The next convention will be held with the Tau Chapter of Lafayette College, at Easton, Pennsylvania, December 31, 1873.
