JOHN BELCHER, ARCHITECT
There is a charming, home-like formality about the terrace and entrance, and a nice sense of
privacy. One wonders what use the second story of the pavilions are put to, and regrets the pic-

fascinates. The conservatory is well placed, and a touch of symbolism is suggested by the finals.

TRIUMPHAL ARCH ERECTED AT TORONTO IN HONOR OF THE VISIT OF THE

DUKE AND DUCHESS OF YORK

PERSPECTIVE AND ELEVATION OF THE END OF COURT Serious, ennobling, and above all suggestive of a permanent seat of learning. The sections in the lower illustration give an idea of the interior arrangements, one wing having twenty-four class-rooms and four professors' rooms (see plan), while the other is occupied by a large and lofty auditorium. The sky-line is much better in the lower study.
