    To this plan could none say no;
Each was glad to have it so
(Lucky was’t the girls could row)
Hey, sing hey, the Rule of Three,
“ Row you, then, your wife, Sir A,"
(Thus the cunning dame did say)
“ O’er tlie stream and then I pray,
Leave her and row back to me.”
A, he rowetli his lovely bride
Manfully to the other side ;
Backwards then the knight he hied,
Hey, sing hey, the Rule of Three,
Then up rose the lovely C,
" Come, my gentle Mistress 11,
Row the boat across with me”
Oh, the woes of jealousy.
Mrs. C rowed back alone,
“ 13 and A now get you gone,
Bring your wife back either one.”
Hey, sing hey, the Rule of Three
A and 13 rowed off with glee
With his lady back rowed 13;
“ Now row over 13 ami C ”
Oh, the woes of jealousy.
“ Send back Mrs. A," she said;
Mrs. A she backward sped,
On the furthest bank now staid
A, 13, C, the husbands three,
“ Haste my Indies, A and 13,
To your husbands merrily,
And send C back unto me,”
Oh, the woes of jealousy.
Buck came C and rowed her o'er
Gaily to the furthest shore ;
Tenderly the young knight swore,
By the sacred Rule of Three,
Never, never, in his life,
Would he doubt his dearest wife;
Or indulge in fatal strife
Brought about by jealousy.
Lords and ladies ponder well
On the talc that here I tell,
Ne’er had this sad strife befcl
But for woeful jealousy,
Oh, ns ye would keep from strifes,
As ye value quiet lives,
To your daughters and your wives,
Teach, oh tench the Rule of Three,

IT is evident to all observers that the clas
sical and scientific courses produce radi
cally different results. The classical polishes
one’s characteristics, influences one to seek
society; while the scientific does not effect
the rough corners of one’s person, but tends to
make its student more conservative. The
reasons of these effects are evident; the stu
dies of the classical course tend to keep alive
all which is requisite to make one a lover of
society, his studies employ but little reasoning
and rely chiefly on memory. The classical
student is continually studying and translat
ing sentiments as expressed by classic writers
and his studies occupy such a fraction of his
time—especially in the last two years—as to
allow him plenty of time to spend in the so
ciety of others. These studies which deal
almost solely with language, tend to make
their student study the beautiful in conversa
tion and thus the requisite element to enjoy
able society is simply a supplement to his
studies—it is their application. The tendency
is to idealize and to approach the classical.
On the other hand the technicals study
works devoid of any intimation of his fellow
man’s virtues or faults. With him all is
reasoning, his study of the Greek consists
alone of their alphabet, which he uses as math"
ematical symbols. He will pardon the mur
dering of his native tongue, if you but give
your sentences in a logical order. This de
velops a spirit which despises conventional
ities and the many little things which consti
tute society. He despises anything which is
created for effect alone and his desire is to
seek out the fundamental reason of all things
of which he learns, this naturally, comes to
be his characteristic since his studies are all
of such a nature. Hence he gradually comes
to have a feeling for seclusion, or at least
yearns-only for the society of those interested
in the same work as himself. Then again his
