'A stained-glass window, erected to the memory of the late Principal Caird in the Bute Hall of Glasgow University, was unveiled on Friday. The window was designed by Mr. Dearle, of Messrs. Morris and Co., Surrey. There are four lights, the upper and the lower portions being separated by the gallery of the hall. In the upper part there are figures of four philosophers and four theologians whose works the late Principal delighted to interpret, and in the lower part are allegorical figures of the four faculties_Arts, Medicine, Law, and Divinity; while in the tracery of the window is a small figure symbolical of the Creation of Light.
