On Tuesday, Winchester College celebrated the five- hundredth anniversary of

its foundation with all the pomp and ceremony required by a " Quingentenary,"—that is the appalling word applied to the event. The chief incidents of the day were the holding of services in the Chapel and in the Cathedral, the presenting an address to and hearing an answer from the Prince of Wales, the inspection of the Rifle Corps, and the consumption of the Domum dinner. This was all very English and slightly prosaic, but the last cere- mony was really picturesque. It consisted in the singing of of " Domum " in " Meade." The song was sung over and over again by a huge and enthusiastic gathering of old Wykehamists.
