" The Size of a House." ♦— In the year of Queen Victoria's ac cession to the throne there was dis covered in the .mighty River Amazon a plant and flower, which were called ! after her Victoria Regia. It is unique, ana at Kew, where . we ber lieve the only specimen in England exists, a special- house was built for it. This house covers an enormous cir cular . tank, as big as a swimming bath, and this area is hardly suffi cient to accomodate. the enormous leaves of this gigantic plant. .,Some times there will be a dozen great cir cular leaves, some of them as much as eight feet in diameter, and capa ble of supporting a : man as on a raft.' -.

A WAR LEAP YEAR. ♦ AN ANCIENT, PRIVILEGE FOR THE LADIES. It is a somewhat remarkable fact that with the advent of 1916 we shall have already had in the twentieth century two war-time leap years. The; last war in 1900, when Great Britain was engaged in the South African War. Leap year 1916 will be remem bered in its association of date with the greatest war the world has ever seen. . Since the commencement of the con flict war weddings have greatly in creased the marriage irate of England; what will be the result in leap year when women will have the time-hon oured privilege of proposing it is im possible to say.
