The Rev. Mr. Sam Jones has been
carrying on a protracted meeting at
the First Methodist Church, during
the last week. The meetings are
largely attended, and we believe he
will continue the services during the
coming week, and will preach a
special sermon to the boys and men
only, this afternoon at 4 o’clock.
His sermons are practical, forcible
and interesting, and in a style pe
culiar to himself. We hope all the
students will attend this afternoon.
It is now a question whether it is
not better for the two Literary Socie
ties to turn over their Libraries to bhe
University or not. One thing is cer
tain, if different arrangements are not
made by which to compel the boys to
return the books which they take
from the Society Libraries, there will
even be no Library to turn over to the
University. Last year there were
about seventy-five volumes taken
from each Society, which, through
negligence and carelessness, never
were returned. Now, would it not be
better to let the University have these
books? We could get them just as
well from the University Library as
from the Society, and then they will
be returned, and not lost. Let each
member of the Library Societies con
sider the matter.
