THINGS I THINK ABOUT. (By J-AMES DOUGLAS.)- !' THE CHARM OF A CHILD. Without children and flowers tho world would grow old and cold. It is hard to imagine a childless and flowerless earth. If we' ki.ow that there were children and flowers in tho stars I think these night-lights would look loss inhospitable. L fra.- there are no children in the m'on. I doubt whether there nro daffodils in the Pleiades. I nm convinced that children and flowers a?o tho especial grace of earth. It is not easy to explain the charm of a child or the charm of a flower. It is the charm of a dying beauty that does not know it dies. It is the pathos of mortality unaware. It is the sad 'loveliness of fading sweetness. Knowledge is an ugly thing.

Mr Alfred Naquet, in on article on titled 'Entente— English or Gorman?' in the 'Nineteenth Century' (January), ?writes:— 'I have argued the problem from every side, anil I think that I have shown that tiie English alliance is our best guarantee against war, if a gene ral disarmament, widen i .should jneier, but to which France possibly might not asent, be impossible. The entente witl| England is not only tho best guarantee against war itself, but iu case of war it protects us against tho worst conse quences of a war, and most assures iu; of the posibility of continuing without a break the economic, political, and social evolution of our country.
