The Toledo Journal says: Three students from Ann Arbor were at the Union depot several nights ago getling rid of their enthusiasm over the whale. The sight of so munh oil was too much for their stomachs. A smart junior was recenlly a witness in a justice court case. The learned counselor L. was exaniining him when "smarty" reíused to answer a question. Counsel asked him why he would nof, answer and the pedant said it was not a pi'oper question. "How do you know it is not?"said the barrister. "Because"' says big head, "I study logic up at the university and of course I kuow whether a question is a proper one or uot." This was a 'phat' take for the legal luraiuary, ana he iminediately put tlie "logica! cihs" thróugh a course of sprouts. Swell head frothed at the mouth, but the man of law was inexorable. When this mighty man of logic got outside, he confldentially formeel a fr:end that it was a mistake to teil counselor L. tbat he bad ever studied logie. The last tbing the lawyer told bim was to look op the subject of "nou sequitur." Last Saturday the most exciting election on record was held in room A tor the purpose of choosiug the next year officers of the lecture associaüon. The meeting was called to order at ten o'clock, and from that time until uearly six o'ciock, without iutermission, even tor dinner, the battle went on. Ballotings, debates, etc., were the order of the day. Three or four times tbe ballots wei-e ties, and a slight gain for eitber side was a signal for tbe wildest excitcment and confusión. Pinally tbe meeting proceeded to the balloting on the subordínate officers, and the following were elected : Recording secretary, T. W. Peers, Collinsville, 111. ; assistant treasurer, j. w. ryne, Fort Clinton, Ohio; corresponding secretary, W. Galpin, Ann Arbor; ireasurer, J. W. Bird, Jackson, vice president, Carman N.

Neither side had enough votes to elect a president, and the meeting was adjourned until May 28. As both sides are eager for the fight another interesting time is expected on that occasiou. Five hacks were engaged all day running hither and Ihither af ter voters. In the evening the ladies, who had done valiant work for Mr. White's side, were serenaded, the Ann Arbor city band being hired for that purpose.
