Have a Sweet Voice, Girls.
Were half the pains which is of­
ten taken to cultivate the voice in
song bestowed upon its tones as
used. jn speech, social intercourse
would gain a very gieat charm.
We hear harsh, metallic voices,
which are cracked, a discord run­
ning through their cadence. No-,
body can be where a number of
ladies are gathered without being
struck by the lack of culture which
is evidenced in disagreeable voices.
A sweetly-modulated voice in edu­
cating the young, example is more
potential than precept; and if
mothers and teachers always spoke
with gentleness, and were careful
to let their voice be clear and dia=.
tinct, dripping from their lips like
finished coin, a great benefit would
accrue to the attractiveness of social
intercourse. Ex.

airy and well lighted rooms, used for study and recitation. The old College building adjoining
has been thoroughly overhauled and converted into a pleasant and commodious chapel.
Apparatus sufficient for ordinary purposes of illustration, is now provided, and additions will
be made from time to time. The Library contains a few volumes ot interest, and’new volumes
of value will be added as fast as the means at our command will allow.
The features of Christian College to which we especially invite attention, as distinctive of our
work are as follows:
C hristian M orality .—The Bible is read every day and lectures calculated to impress its
morality are given, and with the Bible as a basis, the’ effort to impress the highest Christian
morality as the guiding principle in the lives of our students. Dogmatism and Sectarianism are
carefully avoided. We ign'ore all religious or political divisions, and encourage great freedom of
