Rules shall be held monthly in the Clerk's office on the first Monday in every month, for the purpose of entering all proceedings and orders which may be entered at the rules, and which are not taken or made in open Court. The rules shall be held under the direction of the Clerk ; but either of the Judges of the Court may make or allow any special orders in any cause, not inconsistent with the regulations herein prescribed, which shall be entered in the rule book, and take effect accordingly.
All process shall be made returnable to the next succeeding term, or to any intermediate rule day, at the election of the party praying the same, and the return of the said

The plaintiff shall file his bill before or at the time of taking out the subpæna.

The day of appearance shall be the rule day after the process is returned executed, or after the second return of a copy left if the process shall not be executed, when the process is returnable to the rules, or the rule day next succeeding the term, where the process shall be returnable to a term of the Court; and if the defendant shall not appear and file his
