Frothingham, as asked for by the unanimous voice of the board of regente, must inevitably result for the best interests of the University. Although they are men of eminent ability in the ir profession, their ideas and utterances areso at variancewith the general policy of the University regulations and the plans of the regente that no harmony of action or peaceful prosperity in the medical department could be expected while they remained. The general opinión 6eems to prevail that the University will sustain the shock of this slight pruning and soon be all the more vigorous and healthful for the loss of a little of its surplus sanguinary fluid. ________ The claes-day orator of the present graduating class of the law department did not fail to impress his hearers with the fact that he isa southerner; that his dearest interests are with the south, and that he knows all about the south ; also that he is a free-trader all through, and that if this country does not adopt the 'Hinglish style in this respect, it must not in its day of destruction blame him fornotsounding the notes of alarm. The majority of his bright class-mates wriggled ivbout in their seats and seemed scartely able to resist the inclination to stand up and answer the gentleman on the spot ; kut a sense of propriety restrained them and the speaker was allowed to use his ad vantage to the best of his ability. The patriotic and enterprising editor of the New York Independent, for a number of years has been in the habit of celebrating the Fourth of July, at his country seat at Woodstock, Conn., in a way that has attracted much attention, not only at that particular locality but all over the country. The ablest statesmen and persons most noted for their scholarly attainmenta have yearly contributed of their best talent to the proceedings. The Hst of illustrious lawyers. college presidents, congressmen and others will be headed this year by President Harrison, and the utterances of these distinguished men will be listened to with interest as they will expresa their ideas of what the situation is and what are the prospects for the future in this government of ours. The counsel of these able and experienced men may be of use to the younger generation, at least, who will soon have to sail the old Bhip of state. It will do them no harm to listen. __________ Cotton may yet be king. In this great land of ours, with all the advantages of competition, it is a pretty difflcult matter for any combination of men to control any product of the country very long to the detriment of the masses. Col. J. H. Brigham, Master of the National Grange, has been investigating twine for binders an he thinks that cotton twine will answer the purpose, and be very much cheaper than that heretofore used, and if so the " trast " can keep their manilla to hang themselves with. He says : " This twine is all right. It is commonly called seine twine. It bas twenty-four strands. It is reported to work better than the best manilla and weighsonly about half as much. It retails at 22 to 24 cents per pound, and as it will go twice as far, is much cheaper than the " trust " twine. It comes in hanks and must be wound into balls before using. This specimen was used by the Patrons of Husbandry in Tennessee. Cotton may vet be king." "We hope that herein saay be found the solution to the binding twine question. Competition is the banisher of high prices in all avenues of trade. In spite of the medical faculty who are charged with kicking up " all this breeze," th e comm encement climate this year has been, we might say, " well tempered to the shorn lamb." The seniore must havebribed the signal service to take a ap and leave to them the matter of weather for this especial occasion. Perhaps the services of the professor of meteorology were engaged, and if só he performed his work well. Not to dweil further upon this particular featj ure of these auspicious days, to describe the rest, we will devote to our use the well-chosen words of the New York Herald : "These are the jolly student days. Graduates are pouring out of class-rooms like bees out of hives, bent on sipping their share of nectarean cash and fame from the opportunities of the future. Scores on scores of bright-eyed, clear-headed boys, diplomas in hand, are ready to make a rush for successful commercial careers. Scores on scores of youngf lawyers are to make their trial trips, and see if they can reap a ■ genial harvest from the entaoglements of life. Besides these, there are scores on scores of young doctors breaking away from the academie leash, their heads full of theories and their pockets full of pills. Well, so be it. It's a large world, and there is roo ,n enough for all. Gentlemen, you are in an open race and fair play rules. Are you ready 't Go ! "
