We fell like emphasising a remark made by the Associute
Editor an issue or two back. All students who ieel any

A terrible rumor reached the Sanctum the other day to

mer in Indiana, by grafting the buds of a sour anplo trco
witli sweet appic buds, produced an apple which had
four quarters, two being green and sweet, and two red

vouched for by good authority.
John Mockctt and Paul Clark, whilo out duck hunt
ing a few days ago, captured a most remarkable specie of

A Prep, who had just finished answering tho last ques
tion in the Latin examination, was so elated over his suc
cess that immedhtoly on reaching the hall he began to
give vent to his o'er flowing soul by singing in a loud,
clear, unmistakable lone, the L. M. doxology. His mellK

sufllcicntlv recovered from the effects of the sudden tran
sition to recall where ho left off.

the salt basin and was lost to sight. About 7 O'clock in
the evening a couple of students found him sealed in the
middle of one of the marshcB, searching for the bottom
of the mud with his borrowed gun. They succeeded in
getting him out on dry ground: but he has not yet suc

a lady one evening last term. At the oppointed limo ho
went to her boarding place. She as not there but think,

room mate. An hour or more elapsed when upon enquir
