Nothing! It is very difficult t o compose a suitable article for an unexpurgated issue. This results from the fact that though it is qui te logical to call a spade, a spade, and a heart, a heart, one could say many uncomplimentary things a bout a spade which ruins an otherwise a ce hig h heart flush and vice versa, The problem, thus, resolves itself into the necessity of saying it as nicely as possible. One might criticize the prohibition amendment, but what editorial writer in the nation has not vented his spite on t he unoffending act, neglecting entirely to comment on the a uthor of the imbecile legislation? A person, moreover, could utter endless innuendos against the policy of the present administration, but such seems worthless to me because since eighteen fifty, despite horrible columns directed against the fair lily growing in our midst, this flower ,the Republican party, has pros pered, Procreated by industry, it will be cared for a nd fostered by its parent. The evils of the present economic s ituation might be exploited by the writer, but the subject has been handled by more experienced men than he and, furthermore, at present he is incapable of giving to it the maslery ha ndling bestowed by lhe Very Rev.

But all of t h e news papers in the country feature t.his type of article with a ll of the details enriched so that an ayid public mind may be fed, a nd, I'm sure, the mentality of our college youths would not care to delve into the picturesque events surround ing the trial. Having said nothing, whether bea utifully or otherwise, I know not, for t he past few minutes, permit me to utter a word of warning to a ll college men. Beware of the en tran cing s miles, the glanlOrous lights twinkling in blue, g rey, or brown eyes, t h e Venus-like forms of fair co-eds, for when once t he throne of reason is occupied by one of t hes e, you will s pend your days a nd nig hts as " idl e as a painted s hip upon a painted sea."
