INDEX — Editorial - — IN presenting this, the nineetenth vohmie of the Index, to our friends, we take our first lesson in journalism. Inexperience is the excuse we offer for our errors. We would remind our readers that the class we repre- sent is few in numbers, and that this is an agricultural, not a classical col- lege. Then do not expect from us a production of high literary character, and without rhetorical faults, but rather take into consideration the circum- stances under which we labor, and then judge fairly of the result. In regard to the history of the College during the past year, we will say little. It has in the main been prosperous. A few of the leading events are chronicled elsewhere; others, of an unpleasant character, are passed by as blots upon this page of its history. There has been no change in the faculty during the past year. Some reforms are earnestly desired bv the students, and we hope that ere long these wishes will be gratified. We have attempted to prepare a book from which you will not turn away at the first glance, and we shall feel abundantly repaid for our efforts if you, gentle reader, will condescend to scan its pages, though it be only " to cast it aside. We have tried to get out of the old ruts, and in our efforts to do so, may have hit wide of the mark. The former system of fencing in each page has been abolished, as savoring tcro :miich of the red line editions of poems. In the matter of ink, we have adopted the college color, which we trust will be an agreeable change. In endeavoring to publish our Index in good season, we perhaps have failed in some things which might have been bettered had we taken the whole winter in which to arrange our thoughts and collect our material. But we cherish the hope that its quality will not be below the standard estab- lished by our predecessors, and that the Index of the class of ' 89 will be judged worthy of preservation. And now, kind readers, as we offer for " our consideration this Index. we vould ask you to be merciful in your judgment, just in your criticism, and charitable withal.
