Must of these jokei are iu rather poor taste ; but one unintended pleasantry is related wliat is really amusiug.

THE OLD CRADLE. There were various dents in the old cradle, {hat seemed to say, every time they stared you in tbe face, the cradle has seen b&rd times. There were dents in the sides, and on the underside of tbe roof, where, probably, some great, awkward, unlucky babies had struck their beads : and every timo you looked at those dents you thought of the babies that bad been rooked in the old cradle, and'of tha lives that had gone out from it and had gone out in it, too ; lor there are two or three little graves in the ohurcb-yard near by— two or three little mounds that had not been levelled by time yet — and the stoues at the head of them bear the name of Bimble— you thought of the men and women who were rocked, while babies, in it, »nd you wondered what they were doing, aud what sort of people tbey were ; and, also, how many out of the Dumber of that old cradle's darlings had gone the way of all men.

LONDON "ENGLISH." [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 23 November 1898

LONDON 'ENGLISH.' A London publishing firm reoently launched u series of foreign translations, whose aim is to show the Englishman how others see him. If the Englishman ie par ticularly interested in the question at all, he would uerhaos derive ns much lip-lit and leading from the newspapers as from books. Here is a characteristic study of London English contributed by Florence Huyward to a St. Louis journal : — After living awhile in London, an Ameri can begins to think that tbe English language is something like the Christian religion. In each case the fundamental idea may be the same wherever you find it, but the variations on it are bewildering, nnt. hn an\r unqAt-.t-.inrr.

This caused Sir Henry Jamas Rreat distress, as, of coursn, nothing was further from his thoughts or wishes than to intentionally offend Charles Reade. Accordingly when tbey met on the following day he weut up, to him to ex press his regret that annoyance bad been felt at what was menut as a mere piece of chafi.

General Information. [Newspaper Article] — The Gundagai Independent and Pastoral, Agricultural & Mining Advocate — 23 November 1898

General Information. mi ? : — It is a noteworthy fact that sheep thrive best in a pasture infested with moles. This is 'because of the better drainage of the land. The doctors in Sweden never send bills to their patients, the amount of re muneration being left entirely to the generosity of the latter. The average duration of human life in European countries is greatest in Sweden and Norway, and lowest in Italy and Austria. In Paris accident insurance policies are issued guaranteeing the holdor against tho consequences of the damage he may inflict on others. They are taken out chiefly by cabdrivers. On a parade ground at Calcutta are several adjutant birds. These creatures walk up and down the grounds, and they look bo much like soldiers, that at a distance strangers often mistake them for Buch. A servant girl on a farm near Cam bral, in Northern France, has lived 72 years with the same family. She is now 84 yoars old, and still attends to her work. In view of the prevalence £*,? .th...
