What London Drinks. Some curious particulars are given in the ' Home. Magazine' concerning what London drinks every year. No less than 275,000,000 gallons of 'water find their way annually down tlie throats of Londoners. But Londoners don't drink water only. The beer consumed amounts Xo 153,000,000 gallons every year, equal to a distribution of almost a pint to every man, woman, and child in tho world. - Of neat spirits London demands about 4,400,000 gallons a year. Ihe tea drinkers are an army of millions, and call for 25,000,000 pounds of tea, which when reduced to liquid consistency means something like 1,250,000,000 pints or nearly a pint for every inhabitant 'of the world; Our teapot, if properly shaptd, would 'com- fortably take in the whole of St|Paul'a Cathedral, for, it contains over 928,000 cubic yards. Of aerated waters Lon don drinks 50,000,000 gallons every year.

'THE EUROPEAN WHEAT CEOPS. The report of growing wheat crops in Europe have so far been of a satisfactory character. The autumn sowings were preformed under -favorable circum stances, and during the early part of winter the growth was rapid, being assis ted by the unusually mild weather which prevailed. The progress, indeed, was rathertoo rapid, and the farmers welcomed the change for mild and wet cold sharp weather, 'which' took place in the latter part of. January. 'George Dornbusch's Floating Cargoes ?
