NEWS FROM THE COLLEGES
The Michiga Agricultural College is
issuing a weekly bulletin, styled the
M. A. C. Record. It is edited by the
faculty and gives the college an op-
portunity to keep in touch with the
farmers of the staite.
A press despaltcn from Ithaca, N. Y.,
in yesterday's papers quotes President
Selurman, of Cornell, as follows: "I
regret to announce that A. Abraham,
of Brooklyn, has been defeated in his
efforts to enrich Cornell University.
Mr. Abraham authorized me to pur-
chase the late Ernest Ikenan's great
Oriental library as a gift to Cornell.
My offer was on the point of accept-
ance when Mine. Calmanne-Levy,
widow of Renan's publisher, tele-
graphed that she will present 'it to
Bibliothique Nationale, in Paris."
The debate committee of Lake For-
est University has decided not to
agree to Chicago's desire for a with-
drawal of its acceptance of the form-
er's challenge and the question to b-
debated upon will soon be forwarded
to the latter institution. As last year's
debate was held in Chicago, the forth-

value of what the University author-

and best sense), which they exert on
each other. 'flis education comes
from the life of the university world.
