The question was: "Resolved. That Sunday labor should be prohibited," led by Mr. Lord on the affirmative, with Mr. Wai lace on the other side. Nearly all the gentlemen took part in the discussion, and the decission was rendered in favor of the affirmative. The mandoline and guitar duett by the Messrs. Norton was a novel feature of the programme, whose appreciation was evident from the hearty encore it called torth. The Amphiclyins rather pride themselves on their music, and justly, .too, for they give a good deal of attention to study in that line, and have among their number some of the very best musical talent in the college. Although most of the students are back ready for work, a goodly number of them are unable to enter upon their school duties on account of la grippe. Indeed, as one of the young ladies put it, "the lad es' hall is turned into a regular hospital," so many of the int mates are the victims of the influenza. There are no serious cases, however, atrl it will not be long before every body is well again, aud things will go on quite as before. There was a unique sleighing party on Saturday evening. It was composed of sixteen ladies and not a man among them except the staid old driver. They drove down to St. Paul, and had, as the girls expressed it, "a perfectly jolly time."

LACE IS WEIjL, ENOUGH, But It Must Mot Be Worn at tbe Throat or in the Street. v'vi-i ■ WOMAN may be fond pf lace— she ought to be if she isn't, for it is a fondness that is to be commended — and lace is something that is be wining to every woman. Made into a ruffle or folded lightly about the neck it 6oftens the plainest face and im proves the harshest complexion. But be sause it ts becoming, says the New York Herald, is no reason why it should be worn with every gown and an all occasions. There are times when it should be worn and times when it should not be worn, and, although ace is extremely fash ionable just now, it annst not be worn at ;hroat or wrists in the street. This is Dame Fashion's Hat, and is absolute. And the same fiat has gone forth regarding the linen collar and cuffs.
