THE ARoua PULiaH H ouse.
HARVARD is still pluming itself
upon its supposed strength in the
West. The following is another sam-
ple from the Harvard Crimson:
An investigation of the statistics
of the freshman class has disclosed
some interesting results concerning
Harvard's hold on the West. The tide
has turned, and instead of losing west-
ern support, as has been the case year
by year for five years past, Harvard
has gained from the West a larger
number than she has had from that
section since the class of '90 entered
college. Last year there were only
four men from west of Missouri, and
this year there are eleven. But this is
hardly a fair estimate of what is com-
moly called the West. Taking into
account the states bordering on the
northern bank of the Ohio, and on the
Mississippi north of and including
Missouri it is seen that the support has
been increasing for the past two years.
93 contributed 30 men from these
states, '94 contributed 34, and- 95 con-
tributed 39. With the exception of '92
no previous class has drawn more than
30 men from this part of the country.
Combining these states with the far-
ther West, it will be seen that '95's con-
tribution from these sources is 50,while
that of '94 was 38, and that of '93 was
34. 92 only contributed G0."
The Crimson is completely and
entirely in error in supposing that
the flow of students to educational
institutions is from the West to the
East. The large colleges of the
East exhibit a remarkable amount of
self-sufficiency when they claim that
all the culture, refinement and edu-
cation is confined to the states
along the Atlantic seaboard. They
do not seem to appreciate the fact
that educational institutions as large,
as well equipped, and as ably man-
aged as Harvard, Yale or any East-
ern college have grown up within

the past two decades. If figres
count for anything, and the Harvard
Crimson seems to think they do,
they would seem to prove that the
current, instead of running East is
traveling westward. The Crimson
says that the Western students at
Harvard in '92 numbered 6; in '93
'34; in '94, 38; and in '95, 50. Thin
makes a total at Harvard, in the
freshmen classes for the past four
years of 182. This is the total
for all the West, or about four-fifths
of the United States. Now look on
this: At the University of Michi-
gan last year there were 223 stu-
dents from the Eastern states, or a
territory of about one-fifth of the
United States. In the face of these
figures, it is difficult to see how
Harvard can claim to be the educa-
tional Mecca of the West.

feature of Saturday's day of sport.

Prof. E. 'P.. McLaughlling, pro-
fessor of Latin at Yale, has con-
cluded to abolish the writing of
compositions by the sophomore
class. Between the enterprising
NewYork firm,which furnissesssays
on any required subject for $3, and
a member of the class who wields a
facile pen for revenue, the essay
writing has become a farce.-Ex.

OPERA ItOUsE.-Over two thousand
peiple witnessed the production of
New York Day by Day," at this pop-
ular place of amusement and evinced
their delight by the wildest enthusias-
tie applause. Miss Williams was the
bright particular star, and was well
worthy of the applause bestowed upon
her. The magnificent scenery, repre-
senting Harlem Bridge, the Burning
Canal Boat, the Death of Mother Cant-
well, the Battery in 1868, the Foot-
pad's Home, caused at intervals, out-
bursts of applause from the rise to the
fall of the curtain, The company de-
serves especial mention, every mem-
ber being a feature, and their admira-
ble acting was pleasing. This company
is a rare one-no sticks, no useless
people. Taking all in all it is one of
the best entertainments yet given at
this house.-Louisville Journal.
