notwithstanding the lacl that the now
Baptist Seminary at Globon and the Moth

registration is much larger than it was
this time last year.
The PaJladian literary society common
cos the year admirably. Its membership,
is huge and it has an excellent set of ,ili
cars. On the evening of the Kith their
hall w.is festooned with black crape,
caught up by white bows, and in t.'io cen

.Tho Dormitory. t
The Local dropped in at tho Dormitory
the other day and was shown over the ren
ovated building by the now matron, Mrs.
Peck ham. As young gentlemen have
been taken as lodgers their halls have
been partitioned off from the others and
tho whole building is now solidly divided
in this way, Mie young men entering at an
cast door and having their own slaiiway.
The Dormitory, a most useful appendage
to the University, has been mismanaged
heretofore and has lost popularity, but it
is to be hoped that under the new arrange
ments and with bettor faru its register may
'be greatly increased this winter. A clear
insight of its improved discipline may
bo gained from tho following rules just
