St. Saviour's will be re-opened with ceremony as a procathedral for South London on February 16. The rector has sent a proposal to the Corporation of the University to grant a sum for the window.

Last evening L. C. Rood of the Medical School fai edio an attempt to break the amateur record in dumb-bell lifting, by putting up a dumb-bell weighing exactly 205 pounds. The record was established in 1874, by R. A. Pennell, in New York, by swinging a bell, weighing 201 1bs., 5 oz., with both hands to the shoulder, and then putting it up with one hand. The gymnasium last night was cold, and Rood was made somewhat nervous by the presence of a hundred spectators. However, he will later try again to break the record.
