The ou tory a as not levelled so much against the inartistic design as against the alleged disloyalty im plied in the removal of the Sove reign's head. Many excellent journals made' ihe matter a party cry, asserting that the new stanmp afforded a horrible precedent, qut!e conveniently forget ing that West Australia Papua, Cape Colony, New Zealand, l'ae. mania, Canada, flor:ceo, the Straits Settlements, old many other of the British I)rnninions, just as loyal as the Commonwelth, had frequent ly, done the same thing without protest.

Somewhat anxious an, aupprehensive, he is a little-just a little-irritable and sliort-ti mpetld, when patients will not take the trouble to do what tl e, are told to do, When he looks at you he looks through you, He reeds you like a book, and can diagnose your case without ques tions or examinaion. When the learned dootpr (rives out on his rounds his penetrating glance sees everything that is going on He is a medical det'ctive, and nothing escapes him. Tl'htt wide-glrLhe I hotclkeeper, ...
