WHERE CHRISTMAS GEESE , ARE SHOD. According to n consular report, an annual "goose market" takes place some time prior to Christmas at Warsaw, through which some .1,000,000 gecso pass, some for consumption at Warsaw, but most for export to Germany. Many of the geese come long distances, and to protect their feet they arc "shod," at It is called, before setting out on their Joutney to Warsaw. The 'shoeing" process is accomplished by their being first driven through tar poured on the ground and then through sand. After this operation has been repeated several times the? feet become covered with a hard crust which protects them during this long m.ych on hard ground.

"But, Harry, I should feel so much more nt rest were I sure that it was safely there. It is such a relief not to have to trouble about it in the morning; there are always so many things to think of at the "last moment." "But you have no reason for thinking 0.30 to-morrow will bo your last mo ment." "Harry, I wish you would not make a jest of sacred things," replied my Aunt with asperity. "My dear Aunt," I retorted, "really, it Is you who are to blame for regard ing a trunk as a sacred thing; neverthe less, since you will not sleep to-night unless your baggage is at the station, to the station it shall go."

"Not a drum was heard, not a fune- &nbsp; ral note " Buried by charity, un- mourned by any relative or close friend, &nbsp; three comparative strangers standing by his humble graveside in Kensal Green Cemetery, that was the end of Richard Martin, aged seventy-five, aforetime private in the Scotch Fusilier Guards, and one of the now rapidly dwindling little band of Crimean he- roes. &nbsp; Martin served his country well. He passed through the horrors of the trenches before Sebastopol during the winter of 1854-55. He nibbled his two hard biscuits daily, and gnawed his meagre chunk of raw, salt beef— eaten raw because there was no fire to cook it. He stood knee deep in icy sludge the day through, and he slept in it by night. Around him his comrades died worse deaths than from shot and shell; they died from the twin visitants, starvation and cholera. And Martin, as a member of a burying party, dug the graves of many of his...
