Mr. McKenzie at Stamford, Conn

On February 28, Mr. William P. McKenzie delivered an interesting address to the students of this school [Manor School, Stamford, Conn]. Mr. McKenzie talked informally to the boys for about half an hour. The subject of his talk was self-government, which he handled in a most interesting way. The subject of self-government is indeed a tender one with us, but it is safe to say no old sores were torn open. Several trials have already been given the students to govern themselves, and what has been the result? The number of transgressions has doubled, and the faculty have seen fit to do away with the privilege. We have yet to demonstrate our ability to govern ourselves, and when we do the better it will be for faculty and students.

In the Easter number will be published a synopsis of Mr. McKenzie's lecture.—The Papyrus.

There are seasons when to be still demands immeasurably higher strength than to act. Composure is often the highest result of power.—Channing.
