Number thrie of a series of prize questions promulgated by the L Isondoii Whitehall lie view is, ' Should adult cousins, male and female be allowed to kiss each other ?" Some of the annswers received are as fol lows: Jacob, alter ha?ving personated: Es.u kissed his cousin Iachel as soon as lhe saw her, ani their parints approved . Then they wiD care for it as little as gmoers' boys do cr esugar. Shakespeife says, Kiss me,a sweet coz," and Tennyson says of hnimself and hs " Cousin Amy "; A" nd our spirit, rushed together at the torching of the lips." As a lady isi cncerned it :inust be con sidered a fair proceedin. If she is married it cannot be amiss. Family affection is a tender and beautiful plant which - cannot be too carefully unr lured. "One touch of nature makes the whole world akin," adkis being a touch of nature they should kiss to make them still more akin.

On one occasiotl an enormous turkey was sent to himby the thoughtful kindness of a neighbouring. farmer, but as the nilnister's family had already provided for, the Christ mas dinner, thebird was despatched to the market and sold. A passer-by, seeing this fine: specimen of poultry,, said, " What a- splendid:" turkey ! Just the thing for the minister's Christmas dinner!" To the minister it'was again sent.- The prudent wife packed it up a second time for the market, and sold it again for a handsome Another friend, siniilarly struck with the magnificent proportions of the turkey, pur chased it, and also sent it to the minister.

COOLNESS IN DANGER. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Gazette — 22 June 1894

COOLNESS IN DANGER. Lord William Lennox tells a story of the coolness of the Duke of Wellington. The French. with a fresh force double that of the duke, were closing in upon his jade'd troops one stormy night in Spain. Welling ton completed hi. preparations, and then turning to a secout, asked " How long will it be before they can reach Us?" "Half an hour." was the reply. "Then I can go to sleep," he said, and, wrapping his cloak about him, he dropped where he stood in the muddy trench and in an instant was asleep. He woke when the bugles of the enemy sounded in his ears. Napoleon, his soldiers were accustocmed to declare, not only slept soundly when under fire, but even when riding on horseback. Genera? Grant also had the saume faculty of falling instantly asleep even in the face of danger. This singular physical trait is not more a proof of courage than a cause of it; the brain, in these brief moments of sleet,, finds new vitality, and wakens, ready for the con flict a'ain. A stor...

Her thoughts were of childish prattle And the patter of children's feet, And her heart went out in pity For this poor little waif of the street; And so to his " Buy a paper ?"

Zbe farmer. iHorse-training in South America. In various parts of the world there are some curious methods of breaking in horses rnd rendering them obedient to the will of man. Amongst the several methods employed by different people, perhaps thsre is no rougher one in use than that which is gener llt practiced on the vast plains or pampas in South America. Professor Crawford, in his recently-published work, "Across the 'ampas and the Andes," describes the pro cess he noticed in force on the estancia of Dr. Francis, which is the method generally lsed in the La Plata districts. li'says : ' It is a most primitlee operation of the rough-and-ready order. The young animal selected to undergo the ordeal is lassooed, and r. headstall having been put upon him, he is lied-up short to strong posts firmly secured a the ground, and then left without food or Water till be is well nigh exhausted.

To part at the end of that time in perfect harmony speaks of fine qual ities in both host and guest. It seems strange that any one occupying the lat ter ,osition should lack the tact which renders an outsider a leasant addition to the family life, but the fsact remains that five out of too fail in this particu Lar.
