Facing- an Enraged Buffalo. Sir Henry Seton-ICarr, C.M.O., a Well-known and intrepid hunter, has been telling some of his ad ventures and detailing some of his •narrow escapes in pursuit of dan gerous game. "Stay-at-home citi zens," he says, "who do not know, and have never experienced the wild joys of big-game hunting, may sometimes wonder where the plea sure conies in, or what is the in ducement. The impelling motive with big game hunters is the lust or excitement of the chase. The lust of the chase leuds a hunter in to tight corners at times. "1 shall never forget," continues Sir Henry, •in. the "London Magazine," "and en counter with a grand old buffalo that I enjoyed—I am certain this Js really the correct word—in a re cent hunt on the Nairobi pulteau. "The scene was a rungo of hills from which steep-sided bush and long, grass-covered ravines ran down to a wide, jungly valley below. Wo had vainly spied all open patches for buffalo that we know frequented the range, and it was n...

The stars are moving in all sorts of direc tions, some faster and some slower, and the inevitable consequence must ho that in a few centuries it \v( could come back again to our earthly life we should not recog nise them. Of course, a very long period of time will be required tc produce a very great transforma tion, but it is going on all the time, and in some cases a few years suflico to render the offects mea surable with astronomical instru ments.
