Nothing has yet transpired that shows moro clearly the moral fibre of the Kelly family than this Binglo fact. When death : enters into any circle and strikes a member down no runtior how; tho whole world recog nises tbo sactedness of grief and sym pathises' with that propriety thot causes those sorrowing to withdraw themselves from the public gnuo tor a timo.

TOO LITTLE TO DO. I AM always very sorry for those who have too little to do. They seem to me scarcely to have a fair chance in the world. Their natures arc not properly taxed and tested, trained ana developed. They might have been among the great and wise and good and famous in the world, but thoy have fallen hock into the ranks of the Ignavum peons. Their liberation from the common cures ond activities of life, of whioh, perhaps, thoy prided and plumod themselves, ib their drawback and their band, It is oven possible that it may help to kill them. A traveller who visited the Pitcairn islande.ro in their lonely Pacific homo found some of them dying of cheer old age whon -between fifty and sixty. They had too.' little to do. Tho rough fibre of life, for its- due adjustment, needs a certain amount of work and worry —of working again?t tho collar, of strain ing against wind and tide.
