PLANS FOR iNTKin-' iLLBOIATS DEBATINO.
Cambridge. Feb. M (Special).?The first mtercoUe
giate d.-bate between Harvard an'l Yale two years
ugo revive l th<- fast-dying interest in public speak
kag at Harvard. The following year brought about
the organisation of two new debating societies, !
whose rivalry has bee,, tha- necessity stimulus to
Ihe eause. line of these SK-letles, the new Harvard
i'nlon, has undertaken a scheme, which, if success?
ful will extend this quickening interest throughout
th" college world, and bring the debating Interests
Into reconnV.e l prominence. A circular has leen
sent by this organisation to the debating societies
in Vale. Princeton, tha- University of Pennsylvania,
Columbia and other Institutions, Inviting tha-m to
elect delegates for the purpose ..f forming a union i
which, when once started, might be ma-le to in?
clude nearly all Of the important colles.'S of the (
eastern part ot the country.
Tho object of this union is stated to be for the
purpose of Insuring more frequent Intercollegiate
debates and als. thu a uniform programme may
oe carried out by all the societies The flrsi of
these aims would l"* sccompHsbed by holding prac?
tice debates without decisions by Judges, between
many of Ihe colleges Harvard, for Instance, would
have these informal contests with Brosrn, Dart
mouth. Wllllama Amherst, etc., rea rvlng the de?
cisive debates with Vale and Prin ???..? Such a
policy would, it is thought by thi promoters of
'.he scheme, do much to quicken the Interest in
ip-aking. bath by enlarging tbe circle of rivalry
ind by giving a muon larger number of men an
opportunity lo represent thc university. Bl the
lame time making tha* arrangement more accepts
ole lo the smaller colleges These pra ttlce debates
would tend to raise thc standard of speak'ng, and
run-e no man would bc allowed ' i tske part In
more than one practice jm-1 on<* de .-.'??? debate the
plan would no, absorb an undue amount of timi-.
The union would carry the scheme still further by
agreeing upon a set of questions t i be discussed
by all the debating societies, one to be dlscusM I
Correspondence has been e-in-led on relative to
this matter with several of the lending periodicals
of the country. "The North American Review" has
expressed itself as ready te give space for an arti?
cle on both sides of the questions each month,
while "The Arena" and "Public opinion'' have also,
promised to give the subject notice in their col?
umns. Vale has pronounced ha-rself as being
strongly in favor of th" project, an.l has elec;?l
as her"deiegates W. II Leefe an-l W. E. Th.ams.
Princeton has fallen in with the plan, anal has
promised to send delegates, lt is understood that
the other universities are favorably Inclineai and
Whl eventually do the sime Harvard's delegates

BM there la no Increase whatever. On the centrs-y,

of New-York now than there ??r. fifty yeara ago. Tha

the most prevalent and most dreaded af all human dla
ease*. It was fully alesrrlbed by Htppocrate* and Aria.
baie more than 300 yara before the birth of a'hrlat.
The annals of medlrlne slnre then furnish no evblrne*
of Ita contagious rhararter. If lt be contagion* now lt
was equally so 2000 yenra bro, and vet, after lt ha*
hui twenty centuries to propagate Itself "from th* *,c_

No disease that la not contagious CAM be commui'
