One of the most enjoyable features of our University is the pleasant hour spent each week in assembly. This time is usually occupied by members of the faculty and the students are always sure of something bright and instructive. Wednesday before last Prof. Childs brought out the subject of "Improvements," in a very pleasing manner. He spoke of the wonderful electrical inventions which have so changed the life and customs of the human race. We seldom realize that things which were considered luxuries or perhaps were never heard of a few years ago, have now become absolute necessities of life.
