A IEDIAEVAXi UNIVERSITY.
Queer Initiations Students Had to
Go Through With.
The n.ev. HaUlngd Raahtlall In The Mflnnet.
The mediaeval student -was often
considerably younger than the modern
undergraduate, sometimes, Indeed, a
mere boy of twelve or fourtepn. but
even when that -was the case it Is
quite a mistake to compare his position
to that of tho modern school bov.
The mediaeval student was to a re
markable extent his own master. Ar
riving at the university town In a
carrier's cart he would often be met
on the way by touting masters, or
scholars employed to tout on their
behalf, who solicited his presence at
their lectures with all the accommo
dating obsequiousness of a modern
tradesman. Ho was free to choose the
lectures which he might attend, and
the hall In which he would reside; and
when ho had chosen It ho found him
self In the early middle ages a mem
ber of a self-governing community
which elected its own principal, man
ured Its own affairs and -was subject
to no regulations except "statutes" of
their own making. As In the mediae
val -world generally there was much
minute regulation of private life,
though the government which enforced
that regulation -was originally a highly
democratic one. But It is a common
place to say that democracy Is often
tyrannical. Before the freshman, or
bejannus (from bes-Jaune, kelloy-blll,
unfledged bird), could call himself a
student there was an initiation to be
gone through. Ho wa-B made to "pay
his footing" hy entertaining his new
comrades probably all the inhabit
ants of his hall at a feast, and, fur
ther, there was a painful ceremonv ot
some kind, -which varied with the taste
and ingenuity of different nationalities.
Tn Germany he had to go through the
ceremony of "deposition" namely,
have the horns of the supposed fe
rocious wild hoars removed with a
saw, have his nose ground at a whet
stone and generally be drubbed and
licked into shape. In France the cere
mony was a "purgatio." The freshman
was supposed to bo not a beast to be
tamed, but a criminal to be solemnly
tried for the offense of "bejannia."
This wns done by the infliction of a
certain number of blows with a sauce
pan or hook (llbro super anum). Else
where we hear of a ducking or wash
ing, or riding through the streets on a
donkey. At Oxford there was "tuck
ing." The victim had to sing or make
a speech in the hall under pain of
being "tucked" I. e., having his lower
Ho cut over with a thumb nail care
fully grown for the purpose. At first
the Initiation was put down .under all
sorts of penalties by university and
ecclesiastical authorities; then (as is
usual with bad customs) winked at,
and finally enforced. It did not become
extinct till the latter part of the se-.
In the universities of Italy and to
some extent of southern "Europe, gen
erally the student was not only inde
pendent: he- was dominant. In these
unlveislties, of which Bologna Is tho
type, the university itself was formed
by the students. They and they alone
formed the universities the corpora
tion, or guild or rather (since the stu
dents of different faculties had separ
ate organizations, while the law stu
dents wore divided Into ultramontanl
and cltramontanl) the unlversltates.
The masteis were not even membeis
of these guilds; they formed a college
of their own, which regulated admis
sion to the degrees, but they had no
authority over tho stuaent guilds. The
students elected the reutors and other
officials, made tho statutes and (very
often) elected the professors or doctors.
The latter were -compelled to tako nn
oath of obedlenco'to the student rec
tors and to the student statutes, and
tho discipline thus enforced was by no
means a nominal one.
The professor who required leave of
nbs'enco for a single lecture was re
quired to got leave from his own sttt
donlH as well as from the rector. He
was heavily fined If he was i minu-'e
late In beginning his lecture or If he
continued It after the bell began which
was the signal for Its conclusion. To
enforce this latter regulation the sui
dents were required, on pain of being
guilty of perjury, to run out and leave
the professor to address his temarks
to empty benches. There were similar
lines for bclntz behind time in con
eluding the portion of the tusk for
which a fixed period had been assigned,
for skipping a difficulty under pretext
of dealing with It later on nnd for
non-compliance with many other mi
nute regulations, Tn some unlversd
tles a committee of students known
as the denuuclatores doctorum was
nppolnted to watch the conduct of tho
professors and to keep the rector's In
formed of their delinquencies. More
over, tho professor was kept to the
mark by heing subject to annual or
biennial re-election. How did all this
work? As far as we ran Rather, ex
The professors of the southern uni
versities, everywheie elected either
by the students themselves or by the
city authoilttes, who were wont to
take counsel with the representatives
of the students were the only nrnfes
sors who did pot habitually rut tbelr
work by devolving It upon tlielr bach
elms, No doubt there wero plonty of
Idlo or sham students In the universi
ties, but the majority wanted to learn.
We have nn Instance of an action being
brought against a professor for jefus
Ing to lecture. But then It must be
remembered that In those days ath
leticism was unknown. The election of
a rector hy tho students In the Scotch
universities, which, strange to say, was
to somp extent an imitation of Bo
logna, is the last rello in all Europe of
the old mediaeval student democracies.

If you arc allowing catarrh to eat its way through
your body, you are like the man in the boat drifting
upon a long river which ends with destruction.
Catarrh is a systemic disease. Contrary to general
opinion, it does not confine itself to the head and throat.
It attacks the stomach, the liver, -the bowels, the lungs,
any organ of the body. The only way to cure it is
to cleanse the whole system by a thorough use of
the well-known catarrh cure.
There are hundreds of people dosing themselves fori
this, that and the other, whose sole trouble is a catarrhal '
condition of one or more organs of their body. If these
people will take Pe-ru-na it will make them well. It
will keep the grip away, it will prevent colds, and all of,
the so-called winter diseases, wnich merely mean that ,
the mucous membrane of the entire body needs toning up
Pe-ru-na is the medicine to do it. There are no
substitutes. Pc-ru-na is the only systemic catarrh remedy
"Lectures on Chronic Catarrh" is a complete
treatise on catarrhal diseases, l It treats of every
phase and variety of summer catarrh, winter catarrh,
and the catarrhal affections peculiar to women.:
