College House Rotes.
The new appointments are “out,” and to all the incomers we offer our congratulations and every good wish for their term of office.
In a few weeks the inevitable exodus must come, and at so sad a moment it is some comfort to think that Dr. Wright, the popular Ophthalmologist, humourist and gazeka manufacturer, has found a new sphere of action for his many and varied talents.

Suddenly, with a rapidity unheard of in colder climes, a noisewithout and far away-strikes the pricked ears of the expectant hunters; the sound of a coldblooded horse galloping along the dusty road, its hoofmarks echoing loudly on the tepid soil.
