BREVITIES.

KNOW'ST thou the hall where many a rafter

Blankly looks down on us martyrs below,

Where banished are smiles and joking and laughter,

And proctors steal round on a vigilant toe?

Know'st thou the feeling - akin to perdition -

When the paper of questions is banded to view,

And (meekly accepting the certain condition) -

Thy look, like thy book, is decidedly blue?
