When it Is very cold, mating is delayed till well on in September, but If tho weather la favorable the birds uro put together In August.

It is not to ho supposed tluit a person of Schamyl's importance could make his preparations for a long and dangerous journey without some of his followers hav ing a shrewd guess as to tho place of his destination.

THE HUMAN FAMILY. Tho human family living on earth to-day consists of about 1,450,000,000 souls-not v fewer, probably more. These arc distributee! literally all over tho earth's surface, there being no considerable spot 011 tho globe where man hos not found a foothold. In Asia, tho so-called . "cradle of tho .human- race/' thore are now about 800,000,000 people, densely crowded, or an average of about 120 to every square mile.. In Europe there are 320,000,000, averaging 100 to tho square mile, not so crowded as Asia, but everywhoro dense, and in many places- over-populated. In Africa thore are,' approximately, 210,000,000; and in tlio Americans-North, South, and Central-110,000,000, these lat ter, of course, relatively thinly scat tered over broad areas.

STRAW HAT ECCENTRICITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 30 October 1908

STRAW HAT ECCENTRICITIES. Pnobably tho most astonishing of tlio now fashions for men which aro being introduced this season is tho exceed ingly narrow-brimmod straw hat. 1 was looking (writes C. B. Fry, ill "Fry's Magazine") at some straws tho other Uayx tho brims of which could not have been more than l^in. broad. Possibly this jnoasuremout inay have been an extreme, but, in any case, I do not quito seo the idea of cutting down tho width of tho brim -Unless it is to save tho makers straw. 'Die -whole idea of the straw hut, J tako it, was originally to provide a coo! and light form of head-gear, which should protcot tho wearer from tho glare of the sun. To do this with any degree of completeness tho idea of tho brim was essential-indeed, was the entire scheme of the hat. Jiut, judging from tho specimens I have scon this year, a strange madness is upon tho hatters, with tho result that those who buy a fashionable 1908 strawT will get little more sholtcr from tho sun's glaro than is g...

CLOSER SETTLEMENT. THE .demand for land, which is being made by farmers from beyond our bor ders and by our own people, is leading owners of large tracts of good agricul tural country to consider the# advisa bility of subdividing. During the season of 1907-8, largo estates, com prising several hundred thousand acres, wore cut up into blocks, and scores of now homes liavo already been estab lished. It would appear from present indications that tho season which has now been entered upon will see tho throwing open for closer settlement of a large number of first-class properties, which aro in every way adapted for agricultural pursuits, but which aro now being used as sheep-walks. Al ready 10,000 acres of the Tarriaro Ins tate. in the Narrabri district, have been subdivided, and the ownors oxpeet Xo bo in a position to offer tho balance of this line property in April next.
