While inspecting the toys and trinkets that were manufactured by tlio French pris oners in tho depot thero, my attention was attracted by a little toy house with a wheel in tho gablo that was running rapidly round, impelled bv the activ ity of a common mouse. For one shil ling I purchased the house, tho mouso and tho wheel. But liow to apply half-ounce power, which is tho weight of a mouse, to a useful purpose was the difficulty. At length tho manufacture of sewing thread seemed the most practicablo. .

Stewart, of the Colonial and Continen tal. Church Society, whose pennenont address Is anywhere In Ungava, the great Icebound province between La brador and Hudson's Bay—a thousand miles further from civilisation than the scene of Grenfell's work in Labrador. Tho extent of his remoteness from tho ordinary twentieth century world may be gauged by tho fact that letters are delivered in Ungava once a yoar (s3ys the "Daily Mall" of November 27). WHEN THE SHIP COMES IN*. "The most anxious moment of the yoar," said Mr Stewart, "is when tho Hudson Bay Company's vessel from England Is sighted, and wo are waiting to know whether she brings us good news or 111.
