So far the term at Lafayette has passed off rather quietly. We have no cane rushes to record. The students seem to be devoting their spare time, and even some that the Professors do not consider spare time, to politics. They have had several torch-light processsons already and are preparing for more. At all time of the day and in all places about the college you may see little knots gravely discussing the impending issues. Easton, too, is all alive. Every few evenings her streets are enlivened with martial, music and lighted up by the torches of passing processions.

Dr. Leaman is here this term, and is lecturing to the Seniors or Physiology twice a week. These lectures are interesting and are The Doctor also lectures to the Fresh

A student, who has not been with us long, was seen to hide his segar the other day on the approach of the President. He afterwards inquired whether smoking was forbidden or not. Evidently he had received good instruction in his preparatory school, but

all in vain.

In addition to the Grant and Wilson, and the Greeley and Brown clubs, noticed in last month's issue, a Grant and Greeley club has been organized in college; object, to preserve bread, butter and beefsteak.

Most of our readers have been told that the first floor of the new west wing is to be our future chapel, but what is to be done with the rest of the building they perhaps do not know. Well, it is to be given to Dr. Porter for botanical rooms. The floor above the chapel will be divided into three principal rooms by walls running east and west. The first or southern room is to be used as a recitation room, and will be fitted up with recitation chairs and tables, a blackboard and ample facilities for exhibiting charts and diagrams. The middle room will be lined with glass cases for the exhibition of the extensive herbarium, which is the largest and most complete flora of this State yet collected. It was gathered by the Doctor himself, with incredible labor and presented to the college. Besides this there is a large collection of plants from the famous Yellowstone region, so recently explored by Dr. Hayden. . The third principal room is to be made into two, one as a private study for the Doctor and the other as a general press and storage room. Besides this, each student is to have a desk with book and micro

scope at his hand, to make complete work and get a thorough knowledge of the science. Water and gas in every room make this a very Eden to an enthusiastic student of this most delightful science. The third floor is to be divided into alcoves similar to the Mineralogical Cabinet in Jenks' Hall, and will be devoted to the cause of Natural History, as a place for the meetings of the Natural History Society, and a general Museum.

The plastering of the new chapel is about finished. It seems somebody has been playing an old joke. A Senior's room was entered not long since by one who sorrowfully enquired if he could borrow a copy of the By-Laws. He further declared that he thought it a shame to compel him to learn them by heart.

Have you your chappel speech written? is the usual salutation of one Senior to another. The efforts some of them are making to scratch out original ideas, with which to astonish, lower classmen, are pitiful.

Dr. Green has been appointed one of the Inspectors of Pennsylvania's Insane Asylums by Governor Geary.

Prof. Bloombergh has removed to the brick dwelling house lately purchased by the college from Mr. Miller. His old residence is occupied by students, as is also the one formerly occupied by Dr. Eskard. The residence of Prof. Coffin, since its removal to the east side of the campus, has been greatly improved by the addition of a conservatory. It has also been re-painted. The absence of his former beautiful shrubbery is noticeable. Time will remedy this defect, however, and the Professor will not very likely be compelled again to move his quarters.

T. F. Tillinghast, late Professor of Civil Engineering, paid the college a visit lately.

The uniforms of the Grant and Wilson club consist of blue capes and caps. In the latter part of September the club made an excursion to Allentown, also one to Bethlehem. The most noticeable inscription on their transparencies is "Education is Death to Greeleyism." The capes and caps of the Greeley and Brown club are white trimmed with brown.

A change has been made in the Department of Physics. Ganot has been substituted for Snell as a text-book. The classicals have the privilege of electing Elocution in place of the Mathematical parts.

The walls of the east wing of the Pardee Scientific Hall are completed. The whole is being pushed on with great energy.

We saw a Junior, who evidently is better acquainted with champagne than champaign, laughing the other day till his sides shook because a Freshman called the campus the champaign. Both had better consult Webster.

The chairs in the Greek Room (old Library) which in some mysterious manner were continually being smashed up, have been removed. Benches have been put in their place, which look as if they were intended to defy jack-knives, students, or anything else that might attack them.


"We are Seniors now," and, as a matter of course, we study Mental Philosophy. Learned discussions are an every day occurrence. Many new theories on many new subjects have been advanced; but as to just how the mind acts during sleep has received special attention. One Senior, of undoubted ability, yet of doubtful application, actually dreams and so vivid was his dream and so retentive his memory that he relates his dream as follows to a chosen few of his classmates : "" We were in the recitation room but a few minutes, when in rushed a whole host of the fair ones of the earth; whereupon I awakened."

Classmate. "Ain't you sorry your dream ended so soon after the arrival of the ladies?"

Dreamer. "No, indeed, for I am sure I would have fizzled, as usual."
