The annual pring field day sports were held at the fair grounds last Saturday afternoon, under the auapices of the base ball association. The day was all that could be Hsked for and the large crowd and spirited contests made the event the most succes8ful ever held.

The Lacrosse team gave a very pretty exhllñiion oí that game which was much enjoyed by the spectators. COMMENCEMENT MUSIC. That we are surrounded by a great University no one can doubt who was present at the commencement exercises liistyear; and though we eau hardly expect 8Uch a crowd, or such a series of enlertaining services this year as last, yet the greatness of the institution wlll never allow of an Inferior or unimportant commencement occasion. As has been the custom for the past few years, ao miisic this year wlll be one of the features of commencement week, and this time tl e Amphion Club will be prlncipally respon8ible for the commencement concert. They will, however, be asslsted by our Glee Club, and a f uil orchestra of twenty-two pieces. This would alone be enoilírh to assure us of an exceptional entertainment, but the efforts of those earnest workers in music, with which our city is so liighly favored, expect to furnlsh a programme in the main of original work. A cantata, the words and rauslc of which have been composed by two members of the graduating class, will 'umi the principal part of the program.
