The concourse in University Hall, Sunday afternoon, was a fitting indication of the honor and love which is feit for our late instructor "Abide With Me," was very effectively rendered by the Choral Union and, after the scripture reading by Dr. Angelí and a s'ympathetic pray'er by Proffessor D'Ooge, the memorial address was delivered by Professor Harrington. The speaker first gave a brief account of his friend's life, showing how the poor boy, the teacher of fifteen, had risen to prorainence as an educator and a scientist. In the class-rotm, Dr. Winchell, was ever faithful to his students and his subject; in the general problems of education he was a leading thinker; for his services on the rostrum there was always an appreciative demand, but it is principally with the pen that he has won his fame. His published works are equalled to twenty ordinary octavo volumes; and all this labor was accomplished not so much by excessive as by systematic effort. Professor Harrington brought out, in an appreciative manner, the less apparent but endearing characteristics of the man. ê
