Library as thus to maltreat college property. Pencil marks along the margin and heavy underscorings not only ruin the appearance of a book, but in emphasizing the wrong points such marks often prove a hindrance to the next reader. The students who are allowed to take out reference books surely have no excuse for not treating them with the greatest care, and returning them promptly and in good condition.

On Sunday evening, January 13, at a meeting of the Missionary Society, the Reverend W. Courtenay Fenn, who has recently returned from China, gave a very interesting talk on the Siege of Pekin. Mr. Fenn, who was among the colony of legations, missionaries, and native Christians shut up in the city during the siege, gave a vivid description of their experiences during that dangerous time, and illustrated his account with stereopticon views.

On Wednesday evening, January 16, Miss Byrd lectured before the Education Society on "The People's Astronomy.” The lecture was held in one of the rooms of the High School building and was open to the public.

At an open-closed meeting of the Oriental Club on February 5, Professor Wood gave an interesting talk with stereopticon on the “Architecture of India,” a very attractive branch of the general subject of India, which the club is now studying.

ODE FOR WASHINGTON'S BIRTHDAY

Thy country brought thee forth, 0 Washington,
In midst of chaos, darkness, war. The light
That slowly dawned did but reveal thy greatness,
Nor could find thy equal. As upon
The wall whereon the masters of the past
Had traced with mystic touch the likenesses
Of those whom Florence held in grateful memory,
There shows amid the lines that time has dimmed
One noble profile, Dante's, clear and strong,
So, on the wall that patriot hands upreared
Around our young republic at her birth,
For her protection, and that thereupon
The faces of her great might be described,
Thy clear-cut profile, O great Washington,
Stands out against a background formed of those
Whose traceries are indistinct and blurred.
Her noblest son thou wert, О Washington,
Her greatest citizen. None other shared
The love she bore thee—measureless. And now
Full six score years her feet have trod the path
Wherein thou didst with loving wisdom set them,-
Full six score years, whose ever changing fates
Have brought no lessening of thy country's love,
Which is to-day as measureless, as strong,
As yesterday-a century ago.
