It was an anomaly for the law students who went to the postoffice Saturday night, or it was, probably, the flrst time they ad ever gone there not wishing to get letter. The reason of it was, the proessors had told them after examination hat all who dld not get a note from them ould consider themselves passed. For lat reason, when they saw a letter in leir box, it did not make them particuarly happy. Last weekwas issued for thegraduating aw class, a book which ought to have a lace Id D'Israeli's "Curiosities of Literaure." Being a class-history, with short ketches of the lives of the various memers of the class, it was only intended for iriyate circulation, but we have been alowed a peep at It, and its army of ponderus words, mixed metaphorsand in volved, entences would raise a smile between the aws of au Erie canal mulé. Although ie book ia gotten.up in suniptuous style, uch as gilt edges, morocco cover, heavy aper, etc, the literary part of it is such lat the members of the class are not pui - culaily proud of the volume as a whole.

A Pi'at'or ¦in.! ] wn i'i 1 iil Ii i n A little breeze was stirred up in court Saturday afternoon wlien somt' senior laws were being examined for admittance to the bar. The committee, which wa9 composed of Messrs. Ktnne, Knowlton and Lawrence, had been giving the boys some "stickers" in the shape of law conundrums, and many of thequesüons seenied to them irrelevant and flippant. The students.we understand, quite generally were unable to respond to the abstruse questions, and after one of them had failed, Mr. K mie made the remark tliat they had been fooling away their muuey heie and tliat they ought to go up to the Law department and demand a return of their money, as not haring received an equivalent for it. Upon this, the gentleman last questioned took it as an insult to hiinself, to his classmates and to the department. He objected to the reniark and ref used to proceed unless it were taken back. Whereupon Mr. Kinne explained tliat it was not meant for any insult to him or his classraate?, nor was it a slur upon the law faculty. With this explanation the examlnation proceeded and all were admitted to the county bar and to the Supreme Court.
