That the monster might not bo lonesonio among tho golden carp and little turtles, a small frog was placed in tho tank to keep liim company.

By means of that shirt that venerable institution the laundry seems doomed to a speedy extinction, and tho last washerwoman and her tub will bo deposited, with other inutilities, ih the crowded collars of tho British Museum. Tho secret of the shirt is the material of which it composed, which resembles linen most perfectly, oaoh shirt consists of 8G5 layers, which may be removed, so as to provido a clean shirt daily for a year on the principle of. tho almanacs ono'soos so often.

" There is no weed of a search warrant in this case," I soliloquized: the in born dignity of a Briton carries sufficient authority with it. Oh gracious ! oh-h-li!" So ended my soliloquy, that is to say, in a deep groan, and the inborn dignity of a Briton was exemplified by me in a com pletely doubled-up position, both hands pres sing with passionate fervour a certain por tion of my frame, and my mouth wide open, gasping for dear breath. Reader, have you over known what it is to have a Chinaman's head, or indeed any head, dashed with fearful force into that region of your body generally covered by the third and fourth waistcoat buttons, counting from the top ? If you have not, then rest content, .with my word that it is not nice, and that I would sooner any day of the week accept a cheque for five pounds.
