to be the introduction of the sjstem popu
larly known as the "cut" system ; but It
lias been lound to work very successfully
in many colleges, and it is hoped that this
will be the result here. It has been found
very dlllicult to know when a student

I lie second rule Is lu regard to examina

the completion of a study shall be final,
save that, if auy student wishes to take
an "annual" to ral-e his marks, he has
the privilege. Where a study is not com
pleted till the end ol the year, of course
the examination comes at that time. This
rule does away with the long and tedious
annual examinations, which have been
kept up fur so many years. It does not
meaa to the average student simply a re
lease trom the two weeks examinations in
June, but it means a release from a re
view of the studies of the nriceeding fall
and winter terms, which review has to be
done by the student aside lrom his regit

examinations was greeted with tremend

The Van Ness House parlors were filled
Wednesday with leading citizens, met to
consider the proposed new building for
the Young Men's Christian association in
this city. Mr. Van Patten presided and
said thatat a meeting of the board of di
rectors of the Y. M. C. A. held Monday
evening a committee to canvass for the
necessary funds for the erection of the
new building had been selected of repre
sentative men from each of the churches
in the city. This committee had organized
with the election of Mr. F. W. Smith as
chairman and Dr. S. D. Hodge secretary.
The feeling as expressed by all who
were called upon was, not whether a
building should be erected, but as Dr.
Hawes expressed it, rather a dedicatory
service of the new building. All seemed
to consider the matter as settled, that the
association would have its home.
Among those who expressed themselves
were President Buckham, Rev. Drs. Bliss
and Hawes, Rev. Mr. Carter, Gen. Wells,

than 20,000. Mr. Sturgis closed the
meeting with a few words cougr.it libit ing
the association upon the enthusiasm
manifested by so many for the further
ance of the plans of the association, and
congratulating tho city of Burlington on
the fact that so large a proportion of its
prominent men felt and exhibited so
strong an interest in its moral and rellgi
ous welfare. He had known, he said, but

siding at the orgau. Mr. Sturgis took tor
his subject tho passage in the Lord's
prayer. "Lead us not Into temptation.
but deliver us from evil," or as it is in the
revised version, "Deliver us from the
evil one," and spoke of the differ
ence in the two renderings, the
second indicating that we had an
enemy to light, as well as to withstand the
temptations ot our own inherent nature
The speaker referred to the temptations
that Uhl 1st had. aud compared them with
those which befall men. No Christian
was oyer tempted by God unless
He intended to bring him out triumph
ant. Trial is a messing, and God will
give us grace to bear if, but we must not
o.i this account seek temptation. Mr.
btuigis interpreted the piayer as mean
lug, lead us not into temptation, but to
deliver us from evil or trom the evil one.
