OPTICAL LANTERN ENTERTAINMENT. A CROWDED house at " million prices" faced the white curtain in Banckc's Hall at Barcal dine on Wednesday evening. The entertain ment was an exhibition of several excellent dissolving views recently imported from London ny Messrs. James Brothers.

ALPHA ANNALS. <JOR correspondent, writing on July lo, says : -Mrs. S. B. Williams, the wife of our local storekeeper, had a narrow escape from being severely burned on Sunday last. While she was engaged at thc fire her dress accidentally caught, and was nearly burnt off her before the fire was quenched. There was no one near except a girl about 13 years old, who did all in her power to assist Mrs. Williams.

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Western Champion and General Advertiser for the Central-Western Districts — 19 July 1892

TO CORRESPONDENTS. "Qvre" asks us to explain a portion of "A.J.M.'s" letter in last issue upon "The Emancipation of Labor," in which he writes about " a huge giant lies stretched upon the ground Blooping; he has lain there for centuries ; he is bound by flimsy cords." And further on, referring to the same giant, the writer says, " no more like a chattel to be hawked about, to be bought and sold in the lowest market." "Quiz" wants to know how a giant could be sleeping for centuries lying stretched upon the ground, and at the same time be hawked about. Was a junk of the ground taken with the leviathan, or what ? Perhaps "A.J.M." can explain the paradox, which is a mystery to unenlightened individu als, like " Quiz" for instance.
