We are just now, as a college, embarrassed at our own success. The number of students lately added to our number has been so great that there has not been a room of any pretensions whatever that has not been taken, and still quite a number of students are compelled to room in private houses in the town and on the hill.

Our chapel has proved too small for the whole college to meet in, so a division was necessary, the Sophs. and Freshmen meeting in it for prayers and the Seniors and Juniors using Jenk's Hall.

We are in hopes that the last of the present, or the beginning of the next term at farthest, will see us in our new chapel, and that our college's benevolent friends will furnish the funds to pay for it, as it has been built on faith.

At a recent meeting of the Board of Control of Easton, J. W. Weaver, of the class of '59, was appointed principal of the Easton High School, in place of R. E. James, '69, resigned.

At the last reunion of Hall's alumni spoke of the light attendance of undergraduates. This attendance must continue light so long as reunions and examinations for admission to college are held at one and the same hour. The active men-ofworth in both halls are willing to sacrifice the pleasure and profit offered by an attendance upon these gatherings rather than not electioneer and favorably impress new-comers. As an agreeable alternative to all parties-and those members of the Faculty examining candidates in the mathematical room not the least-we suggest that, upon agreement, electioneering be deferred till the opening of the college year, when ample time will be afforded to visit new students in their sanctums. Freshmen would doubtless approve of the arrangement, for, on their first visit here, which is usually for examination, they do not at all like to be dogged at every turn to decide to join, or to hear arguments in favor of joining either society. The change would insure an assemblage of graduates, undergraduaies, admitted candidates and their friends, and a larger representation of the Faculty. But such change is needless if the societies make a treaty not to recruit on the forenoon of examination and reunion day.

Many of the Sunday Schools conducted by students of the college were suspended during the vacation, but we believe all are now again at work. As those formerly connected with these schools may be interested in knowing under whose charge they now are we give the names of the superintendents: Delaware, H. M. Struble; Chestnut Hill, M. L. Cook; Bell, W. H. Schuyler; Bushkill, W. C. Sterling; Lime-kiln, W. M. Shanks; College Hill, C. E. Burns; Delaware Union, Enoch Benson; Cedarville,

The following officers of the Brainerd Evangelical Society have been chosen for the present term: Prest., W. H. Schuyler; Vice President, J. R. Henderson; Recording Secretary, J. W. Walk; Corresponding Secretary, J. F. Stonecipher; Treasurer, A. J. Sullivan; Librarian, S. L. Stiver.

The Freshmen class organized on Wednesday, September 11, by electing Sewell, president; Dumont, vice president; Cooley, secretary; Jones, treasurer; Bixby, marshal.

The following persons will please consider this mention an acknowledgment of the receipt of their subscriptions. We hope, with the assistance of our friends, to furnish a larger list in our next number: W. G. Fields, O. J. Harvey, E. H. Barber, J. G. Gibbs, C. W. Neal, E. P. Conkling, D. Craft.

On Saturday, June 29, the Olympic B. B. C. of '73 and the Class Nine of '75 induged in a game of ball during the slight rain which prevailed at the time.

MISCELLANEOUS.

A correspondent of the New York Independent for August 29 writes as follows:

"From Denver I went southward to Colorado Springs. Prof. Porter, of Lafayette College, was one of our party, which, by the way, was organized in honor of Hon. John Scott, of Pennsylvania, and friends. An elegant excursion car was provided for the company, and the sensation of a fine ride over so famous a route was well experienced. Cars never carried more precious freight than then. For the Professor-almost ubiquitous, everywhere at once in search of floral treasures-not only astonished us with the most overwhelming of boquets but also with botanical names built up in the most gigantic style. Acres of flowers were strung along our track. The gladiolus, the tusole, the Mexican poppy, the creeping convalvulus, prairie roses and lupines fairly bewildered me. At last the Professor capped the climax by the discovery of a cactus, with brilliant red blossoms. The Professor was now the hero and the admiration of the party. A sage schoolmistress was gathering specimens, trying to name them. Unfortunately, she became mystified. Her botany flew out of her head, and the good-hearted Professor essayed to help her. A long, awkward grass came up for discussion. She called it Gamma, but the Professor electrified the train full of passengers with laughter when, in a solemn way, (and plenty of time to speak it in), he rolled out slowly the ponderous name, Plantago Patigonicum. 'Twas enough for one day. Ere we recovered from our amazement the train brought us in sight of Colorado Springs. Imagine, then, some of the delights of floral rambles and botanizing among these Rocky Mountains.”

"Well, did you get through all right?" said a hopeful candidate or admission to one of our young tutors the other day, mistaking him for a prospective Freshman. It is not certainly known whether he waited for an answer.
