DIRECTIONS TO CANDIDATES.

A copy of the following Directions was laid on the table of each Candidate at the beginning of each Examination :

1. Candidates must at once give up their answers as soon as the time is up If any candidate fails to do so, he will be liable to have a certain number of marks deducted in proportion to the additional time taken by him to give

them up

2. Candidates in want of anything are to apply to the Examiner or other officials in charge, but are not to leave their seats on this or on any other account, except to deliver up their answers.

3. If any candidate bring any book or paper into the Examination Hall or speak to, or communicate in any other way with, another candidate while the paper Examination is going on, he will be instantly expelled, and his name reported to the Board of Examiners.

4. Candidates when they have given up their answers are on no account to return to their seats. They must at once leave the Hall without loitering.

The following instructions were printed on each Book supplied to the candidates for writing their answers in :

Before beginning to answer any questions each candidate must enter legibly on the first page of his book the title of the Examination, the subject of the paper with his number and name in full,

No loose paper will be provided for scribbling and no paper is to be brought in for tbis purpose : any candidate found with loose paper in his possession will be expelled. All work must be done in the book provided, and pages must not be torn out. The book provided must be given up: it cannot be replaced by another ; but, if necessary, an additional book will be given. All work intended for the Examiner must be written on the numbered pages, anything written on the other side, or anything crossed through with a pen will not be examined.

When the question paper is divided into Sections, the answers to each Section must be written in a separate book.

Nothing is to be written on the question paper or blotting paper.

Each answer must be commenced on a fresh page. Should any candidate make any addition to any of his answers, he should indicate the page on which such addition is written.

No candidate will be allowed to leave the room until half an hour has elapsed froin the time when the papers are given out.

Any candidate who is found writing after the bell has rung will have the number of minutes he is late, in giving up his paper, marked on his book, so that the Examiners may be able to deduct marks in proportion to the extra time the candidate has taken.

1. Paraphrase

Alas! how light a cause may move
Dissension between hearts that love !
Hearts that the world in vain had tried
And sorrow but more closely tied,
That stood the storm when waves were rough,
Yet in a sunny hour fall off,
Like ships that have gone down at sea
When heaven was all tranquillity!
A something light as air-a look-

A word unkind or wrongly taken-
0, love that tempests never shook,

A breath a touch like this hath shaken:
And ruder words will soon rush in
To spread the breach that words begin,
And voices lose the tone that shed
A tenderness round all they said;
Till, fast declining, one by one,
The sweetnesses of love are gone,
And hearts so lately mingled, seem
Like broken clouds-or like the stream
That smiling left the mountain's brow,

As though its waters ne'er could sever,
Yet, ere it reach the plain below,

Breaks into floods that part for ever!

Or

Translate one of the accompanying vernacular passages.

Re-write the following in the indirect form of narration :

Then there came a day
When Allan called his son, and said : My son,
I married late, but I would wish to see
My grandchild on my knees before I die :
And I have set my heart upon & match,
Now therefore lock to Dora ; she is well
To look to ; thrifty too beyond her age.”

But William answered short:
“I cannot marry Dora ; by my life
I will not marry Dora." Then the old man
Was wroth, and doubled up his hands, and said :
“ You will not, boy? You dare to answer thus !
Consider, William, take a month to think,
And let me have an answer to my wish ;
Or, by the Lord that made me, you shall pack
And never more darken my doors again.

5. Analyse:

10 John Bull always goes into a fight with alacrity, but comes out of it grumbling even when victorious; and though no one fights with more obstinacy to carry a contested point, yet, when the battle is over, and he comes to the reconciliation, he is so much taken up with the mere shaking of hands, that he is apt to let his antagonists pocket all that they have been quarrelling about.

6. Re-write the following, correcting any mistakes in grammar and spell. 1? ing that you may notice :

I and my brother having left Aden in the afternoon of Monday in steamer we arrive Bombay after five days at 12-30 noon on Saturday which had been our Majesty King-Emperor's birthday and started to Poona by the 2-30 P.M. o'clock's train same day. It was too hot in the two first hours but we enjoyed the scenaries of Ghauts. Not only my mother but also our father came in the station for wellcome. No sooner we allighted but they made shake hands and told us “Good night! How you do, quite well, thank you? You are away since two years. We are awfull glad to see you. You had enjoyed at Brittain rather, is it not ?"
