WIVILIOUR~NE, (from our own Ooretospondont), MAfRlIED PtRrSONALIT'IE,, The students at Ormond Oollege are thorough believers in their Professor of Theology., They will toll you that Professor Laurenoe Rentoul is nob only a highly onultured gentlrman, but also, to employ their own torse, student like language, a "Jolly good fellow all rouned," If you were to moot Professor 1entoul in a orowd at the Exhibition on the oconasion, say, of an enthuilastic Home Rule Demonstration you would not he specially impre?t d by his physical qualifoations, Thelro would come within the sphere of your vision a short, thin, clean shaveu mann, whooe outward appearance gave little token of a keen, well atocked brain, or of the pertinaceous attributes that long ago earned for the Professor, from the irreverent, the title of " Fighting Larry."

OUR SYDNEY LETTER (From our own Oorrospondont.) HVDROPLANINr. For the first timeno in it hitory, "our beautiful harbor" has been made the scene of a hydroplano ilight, under the control of that intrepid aviator, M. Guillnsx, who certainly boats anything over witnessed before in this city. The lydroplnt belongs to Mr, Lebbous Hordern, and had never before been used. For a fow hundred yards it skimmed along the Purfaco of the water, thon rose into the air, for all the world like a monstrous aquatic bird, The aoronaut flow over Double Bay towards Manly, and returned to the starting point. Altogether, three trips were made, in one of which Mr. Hordorn was a passenger. The engine of the 'plane is tremondously powerful, raising a ourrent of air which blow off the hats of spectators in the vicinity, Fortunately nothing went wrong with the engine, the petrol, the planes, the nuts, or the staye. ET1oh trip was safely negotiated, and a new chapter was thus opened in the history of Sydney harb...

NAPOLEON AND SCIENCE, We think of Napolion as the great Lord of War, the butcher of human lives, the builder of a great empire, built only to fall even before the death of its founder, It is well to remember that his gen* Ius was great also in other most last. ingly fruitful fields, He was not only a great warrior, but also a great states-, man-and as such he did not fail to re. alise the importance to the community of arts and sciences., VWriting to the astronomer Orlani, from Milan, which he had entered in triumph, Napoleon said: "The sciences which do honor to the human mind and the arts which em bellish life and perpetuate great achievements for posterity, should be especially honored under free govern. ments, ,,, I invite the scholars to meet and to give me their opinions as to the means that should be taken, and the needs to be fulfilled, in order to bring new life and activity into the sciences and the fine arts, Those who wish to go to France will be received with dis. tinct...

WHICH END OF A POST SHOULD BE UP, -----------* - It is a common belief among farm ers that a post will last longer if set in the ground the reverse of tile way a grew in the tree, ill other words, with tile )utt end up. Accordiilgly. one sees many posts, especially end and gate posts, with tile small end dlown. Tihe suppIosition is that fisaiJ) in a tree is always asceni(nig, or at lc it that it is casier for tihe nap to go up than down. Consequently, it is arguc(l, turniing a poest upside down tendcs to preovent the rise of water, helps to keep the wood dry, and, therefore, renders it less liable to do. cay. As a matter of fact, sap or water can flow in either direction with equal facility and the popular notion to the contrary is Incorrect.

What It Meant. A good story is being told of a Parliamentary candidate who is "nurt sing" a Sussex constituency in view of the next election, He was earnest. ly expounding the emancipation of the laborer to an agricultural audience, and was approaching the heart of the subject, when he noticed that the countrymen looked uneasily at one apother, Could it be that he had not made the necessity of the great dellvy. erance clear to their minds, He re. traced the steps, and enforced some of the prelim'nary points over again, The uneasiness of the audience vls. bly increased, At last one stalwart cottager rose and made for the door, It was a sig. nal for a general movement, The elec. tors bore the candidate no ill-will they simply filed out, He wiped his brown, and turneld In despair to the chairman.
