HE prime essential of popularity is manliness. We

regard as unworthy of consideration except for reproof, that seeking for public favor which leads a man to adapt himself to the faults and vices of those whose esteem he would possess.

The self-debasement which brings temporary prominence while it tends to destroy selfrespect, is only a vain imitation, and can have no solid attractions. The reality which it aims to resemble is based on worth and ability, and upheld by strong affection. If personal character is, as has well been said, the thing by which a man stands or falls in college, then a character for manliness is sure to bring honor, respect and popularity. To perform our duties like men we need, the most of us, more zeal and earnestness. There is nothing manly in wasting four years at college. In fact, no student has any business either to throw away opportunities or to encourage others in so doing. We do not mean to cast unpleasant reflections, directly or indirectly, upon any one.

What we desire is, 'to see among

students a more general love of study and culture for its own sake. Lack of sympathy on the part of instructors does not free us from blame; for the subjects which are presented to us for study are often the very ones with which we shall need to be familiar in business or professional life. We owe it to ourselves to study faithfully. The man who allows the strictness of an instructor or the difficulty of a lesson to scare him out of doing his very best, is—it must be said—just no man at all.

Unless the successive studies are to a certain extent mastered as we proceed in the course, it is hard to see what particular benefit is derived from attending recitations. On the other hand, there is occasionally an excess of zeal on the part of some who seem to consider that part of their life wasted which is not sacrificed on the altar of study; whose life is one of continual mental labor. To such, if any there be, we have a word to say about physical culture. The body is a temple in which the mind dwells, and through which it holds communication with the external world. Bear in mind that to neglect the needs and care of this temple is nothing else than to place obstructions in the way of the mind's activity.

If we were to define the “golden mean" of college duty, it would be that no man, provided he is able to keep in his class without difficulty, should study for “stand” exclusively. Every one should study to thoroughlý master the sense of each lesson, and make it as far as possible his own.

He should form the habit of being accurate and systematic.

He should improve every opportunity of increasing his knowledge of history and of human nature. In studying ancient dramas, it would be a great advantage to have a vivid and truthful conception of the circumstances under which any particular drama was acted. And if his preparation would allow it, our student should acquire such familiarity with Latin and Greek as to read with pleasure in the original the master-pieces of history, poetry and philosophy. But at all events he should take time for social culture.

The members of a college class in Yale are regularly subjected to a severe discipline. In many respects this
