As many as..13. different- nationalities, spaakirig as many different languages, and adopt ing different roligions, creeds and habits are'reluctantly bound together under its sway. These, however, can be re duced to two main divisions, namely, Turks and Arabs. Until the overthrow of the Hainidian Regime, the Turks w«rs, through the weakness and discord of the other elements, the masters ef the situation. All government posi tions were reserved solely for them, and no Turk was trained for any other pro fession, consequently, as many unne cessary positions wcro created as thoro wfic surplus Turks to provide for, and rhe- other races known as Baayahs 01 dependants, had to pay the piper.

WOUND IN THE BACK. HOW -IT WAS- SUSTAINED. A few British soldiers have recently been invalided back tram . the fighting line. - They are victims of the severe November weather. The' overcoats of these men were plastered with mud. They had fought in trenches sodden with rain. Their boot's had sunk anklo deep in the mud ; they had stood nearly waist deep. in., water. Rheumatism had developed. They are but a few. Generally speaking, the health of our troops at the front, is excellent, notwithstanding; the cold and the rain. For this much credit is due to the fine work of the Army Service Corps in the field. This organisation is won derfully complete.

A SAD OCCURRENCE. BODY FOUND IN WELL. On Wedrnsday Inst the body of Mr J. Footter, a well-known resident of Boho was found in a well at his resi dence. Up to half-an-hour before the finding of the body Mr Footter had been going about his work as usual, and looked into the chaff house where one of his sons was working. He then appeared to be in his usual spirits. A litile later, however, his coat and hat were noticed lying alongside a shallow well, used for gardening purposes, and his body was found, head downward in about six feet of water. The unfortu-   nate man had for some years been a sufferer from cancer on the lip, and had lately suffered great pain from it. A magisterial inquiry was held by Mr I. Wallace, J.P., and a verdict of "Found drowned" was recorded. The remains were interred on Friday last, the funeral arrangements being carried out by Riddell's.

Many poultry-breeders are ignorant of tho anatomy of a fowl, and are re commended to make a post-mortem ex amination at an early opportunity, which wiil bo found greatly to assist their efforts at keeping their birds in perfect health and vigor. The location of a fowl's stomach, also the gizzard, seldom troubles the ordinary breeder, yet when their relation to egg and flesh production is considered the import ance of knowledge on the subject be comes apparent. First of all there is a crop at the commencement of the ali montary canal, which receives all food partaken of, and in this thin-walled sac fluid secreted by its glands is mixed with the food, softening it, and thus preparing it for gastric digestion, which is the fowl's third digestive cav ity of the elementary canal. Its walls aro very thick, and thrown into folds, in which calcareous or horny matter is embedded. In fact, it is a living crush ing mill iu which all hard grains are broken up and rendered susc...
