NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Perry Belmont, the young Congressman who so recently ruffled the shining feathers of the plumed knight of Maine, is a graduate of Harvard.
The Harvard Club of Chicago held a social reunion at the Pacific Thursday evening. About thirty were in attendance, and after the transaction of club business, the members gathered around a "punch bowl" in the hotel ordinary, sang songs, and discussed old college times. - [Tribune.
The petition for instruction in phonography, which was placed in the library a few days ago, seems to have elicited the support of many eminent persons. Among the distinguished names which appear upon the paper are: F. S. Fish, Roscoe Conkling, Me Too, U. S. Grant, Sarah Bernhardt, F. S. Fish, Anna Dickinson, Jumbo, Robinson Crusoe, F. S. Fish, C. J. Guiteau, Tom and Jerry, Madame Rentz, F. S. Fish and O. W. and J. The petition has been placed in the faculty letterbox, and, with such distinguished support, will probably be granted at once. - [Cornell Sun.

HARDLY CORRECT.Thirteen Harvard students have been suspended by the faculty for brutally hazing some fellow-students. Crow Dog is also to be suspended for hazing Spotted Tail with a revolver. As Crow Dog never graduated at an American university, we are at a loss to understand where he acquired such brutal practises, but he ought to be hung all the same. The name of the tribe to which the suspended Harvard students belong is not given. - [Texas Siftings.] This item is hardly correct. They were Trinity students. But Siftings can keep the item in type. It's likely to be needed at almost any time. - [Post.
