WAR'S WOUNDLESS DEATHS. The woundlecs deaths and disable ments have been one of the surprises of the present war. We all kno v that charged waters or wines have carbr. ic acid gas in solution. Inside the bottle, with the cork airtight, pres sure keeps the bubbles in solution. When we take out the cork we see the bubbles appear and come up through the liquid. This is because pressure has been lessened, releasing the gas and air which gathers into bubbles. A shell .biled with high explosives, btirsting. lhas 'the same effect on a man close to it. In our blood are air. and carbonic acid gas in solu tion. The violent displacement of the air from the explosion creates a partial vaccum about the bursting centre. The gases from the shells themselves, are much lighter than air. Responding the lessened atmos pheric pressure the air arid. gas in solution in the blood form immediate ly into bubbles.

CHOATE STORIES. WIT OP A GREAT AMBASSADOR. All morn with deep regret the sud4 den death of Mr. Joseph:H. Choate, the famous American diplomat. He was, for a number of years. the Unit ed States Ambassador In London, and seldom has any man won greater popularity or left behind him such a host of friends. A brilliant orator and the most polished wit of his time Mr. Choate was second to none in telling a story. Choate came from a family distin gulshed alike for learning and humor. One of his best stories concerns his cousin, the late Rufus Choate, the eminent American lawyer. One day a young man went to see Rufus Choate and complained that a person had bidden him to "go to blazes." Choate looked grave, and told his client to repent slowly all the incid ents that preceeded the outburst, telling him not to omit anything. When this was done, Choate stood for a while as though in deep thought and revolving an abstruse subject. He then gravely said : "I have been running over all the statues...

The Fruit Bill. Speaking in the Assembly last week, on the Fruit Bill, Mr W. S. Keast, the member for this district, said he was very disappointed with the action that had been taken in regard to the clause dealing with agents buying and selling. He said that " for nearly 12 months a number of honorable members of the House, including myself, sat on a Fruit Commission, and we obtained evidence that some salesmen were treat ing the fruit-growers of Victoria very badhy. I thought when the honorable member for Gippsland West brought this matter before the House that he deserved the greatest credit for his action, which was taken in the inter ests of the producers. The Minister has informed us that we have either got to lose the Bill or accept it with out this clause. I agree with the honorable member for Collingwood that the Council should be asked to recon sider this matter. Every auctioneer ought to welcome the clause.
