The Universiiy College, London, Union* Magazine, in referring to tne departure from the college of Mr. W. Ternent Qooke^ B.Sc. (son of the Rev. W. Cooke, of 'North Ade- laide), from the college to take an important position at Poplar, writes:-"TÊe departure of Mr. W. T. Cooke, is a greata loss to th_ laboratory. If you required exercise in the olden days you could go to Mr. Cooke and work bis mercury pump, if you wanted amusement you could provoke his sarcasm, and if you felt seedy you could, just open the glass-paned door and get a whiff of that fragrant smoke which issued from a well

known cherry pipe famous for its antiquity. Now all these delights are gone, (¡and we

have but the recollection of a geriial pre- , sence which is with us no more. Even those

students of tne organie laboratory who failed to grasp the simple law involved in his recent paper will join in wishing him every success in his new work." Mr. ïîooke, who_is a graduate of Adelaide 'U^rersity, has just declined an offer to - gb" to New York at a good salary. -«*-.., -\ » .

still living. In his earliest days he had air"' utter contempt for the conventions o£X society. When quite a boy he attended a' dance, much against his will. He was asked to conduct; a small partner through the maze of a dance, and after much persuasion and threats he unwillingly fulfilled the duty, of the ballroom, and then sulked for tho re- mainder of the evening. He never went to a dance again. Lord Grimthorpe was always as serious as he was original. He hated new clothes; he disliked collars and ties. His favorite hat was the panama, and this' in summer he would place under the pump, souse it with water, and then place it on his head. Once the late Lady Grimthorpe-' complained that the drippings spout here, mantle. "Never mind, my dear," he said, VI shall have to buy another." He never "wore a watch-chain that was visib^to thî^ outside world, but a long, thin one whioht went round his neck and came through the arm-hole of his waistcoat, and was attached

to the watch in the topmost vest1 pocket« ^ He never carried a cheque-book, but always .wrote his ch.egu.es on odd pieces of trapex,
