Pockets. ". A' London magistrate .told a woman whose,pocket had been picked, that if women would change the position, and plan of their pockets, they would not so frequently Buffer from the depredations of light-fingered thieves.

Still, it is one thingto point out an evil that deserves to' bc remedied and quite another to desig nate the remedy. The court which denounced the present female substitute fora pocketdid not suggest any practicable improvement upon it, and, indeed, it is doubtful if any man who is not a pro fessional scientific person is fully capable of dealing with so difficult a question. Man is, marsupial, and herein ho is broadly distinguished from woman. Nature, has provided him with pockets in his trousers, his waiscoat, and his coat.
