'One point which stands out, however, is that land at Home, compared with any elsewhere, is comparatively cheap. Ono reads of farms oosting from £'30 to £80 per aero in Now Zealand, of fruit farms in .Bri tish Columbia; which are worth from £20' to £30, and of even "homestead" farms, which havo only, as it wore, got a bare dwelling-houso and wi.ro fenco, being worth anything up to £5 per acre.

"On one voyage the sugar we had aboard made every one sick. Mattors unany became so bad that we could not live below deck. I chased a big Newfoundland dog out of its kennel aft and used the piaee as a berth, while the crew threw them selves around the deck at the immin ent risk of being washed overboard. The cook had to go into the hold oc casionally for provisions, and when he did so he iied a piece of cloth over his mouth and nose. After several such hurried visits he was overcome, and two other men similarly protect ed went down and secured him with ropes and he was hauled out The hatches could not be battened down, for fear the cargo would spoil, s.p wa had to put up the best we could "with the fumes until we reached port.

THE MAN FROM COLORADO. The Driver and the Passenger. As we left Sandy Gulch for Rising Sun there were six male passengers to go by the coach, and the route was over the mountains and full of chan ces of disaster. The driver came out from breakfast as soon as the coach was i^ady, and looking about on the passengers he selected a small, pale faced man and invited him to climb up beside him. While the pale-faced man was climbing up the driver whispered to the rest of us:— "I picked him out in order to scare him to death. You fellows will see a heap of fun before we've gone ten miles!" Two minutes west of the gulch the road made a sudden turn, with a sheet fall of a hundred feet down to Wild Cat Creek, and the driver put his hor ses to the gallop and said to the man: "We may get round all right, or we may fetch up down below. Hold yer breath and say yer prayers!" The passenger made no move and did not change countenance, and, aft er making the course all right, the driver rather indigna...
