Bishop Garrett's second lecture
on the "Philosophy of the Incar-
nation" was delivered in St. An-
drew's church, Sunday evening.
The subject was Spencer's theory
of evolution, which the speaker
said, fails to explain the origin of
things, fails to explain the presence
of the mind in the body, since the
moving force is denied to be in-
telligence, and does not satisfac-
torily account for the difterentation
in species. The native of Terra del
Fuego seems to be little above the
brutes; yet it has been shown that
when'taken from his haunts and
surrounded by the influences of
civilized life, lie quickly adapts
himself to lis environment and
displays the mental and moral
qualities of man. The elements
had existed there all the time.
The selfish individualism, which,
according to Mr. Spencer's theory,
has animated the living creature
throughout its developmeit, from
the protoplasm up, lie changes at
last to the unselfish altruism of
his "Absolute Ethics."

Oracle Prizes.
Some time ago we stated that
the Oracle would probably be out
before the holiday vacation. The
board are laboring zealously and
earnestlywithathat eud in view,
but to oiie acquainted with the
immense amount of work neces-
sary to bring out such a publica-
tion, it seems an almost superhu-
man task to bring out the Oracle
before Christmas. But whether
the Oracle appears before the
holiday vacation or two weeks
after--as it certainly will not be
later than that-the board de-
serves very great credit for its
push: and this is still farther ap-
parent when we consider that the
Oracle usually does not appear
before Maheli, and very rarely ii-
deed before the end of the first
semester. The judges of the
literary productions, Profs. Scott,
Thomas and Kelsey, have ren-
dered their verdict, and judging
from the quality of these produc-
tions the Oracle this year will be
especially good.
Miss Jessie V. Penny was award-
ed the first prize,fifteen dollars,for
the best story. Mr. I. K. Fried
man was awarded first prize, $10,
for best humorous sketch. Mr.
E. L. Mason, the first prize, a U.
of M. guitar, presented by L. h.
Clement, for the best class song.
And Miss Maude Caldwell the
first prize for dramatic scene, the
prize being the choice of either
Goethe's Poems or Dicken's com-
plete works, presented by Moore
& Taber.
Mr. II. C. Ryan received the
first prize, $5, for the best car-
toon, and Mr. H. Baldwin the
first prize for title page life size
portrait, presented by Gibson.
Mr. II. L. Crummer also received
honorable mention in the story,
and Mr. I. K. Friedman in the
class song and dramatic scene.
