THE EASTERN FRONT The fighting along the Russian appeai s to be continuous, and the Russiau advance on Austria is sfcill main tained. This is important, for the Austrian frontier is likely to bo the Achilles heel of Germany. All the ac tions in the north are manifestly to hold the Germans along that portion of the line, while the attack is pressed home, as it will be in the spring, on the south—Germany's vul nerable point. According to a late cable message, terrible distress pre vails fn the Carpathians. Thousands of the inhabitants are fleeing in a starving condition, or are hiddsn in pita dug in the mountains.

Instead of the usual stalls ranged along both sides of the building, a large chalet, in red and white, the Swiss colours, was erected along the centre of the hall. The sides and ends were open, and along the counters were displayed a large quantity of useful and attractive goods, from dainty specimens of needlework to the useful cabbage.

One relates to &u "educated bull."

The beef cattle are brought in from ranches one, two or three miles away, Sometimes vaqueros bring them in. A ropo is tied to the animal's horns and another to his tail. A vaquero will rldo in front holding one rope, and another vaquero behind hold ing the other.@ThiB makes a sort of procession, and as th6 animals ar6 all wild and mostly ugly and inclined to make trouble there is no end of fun in watching this procession go down the street.

A number of tin pannikins were filled •with pure spring water and various leaves, such as oak, orange, lemon and grass, immersed in them ; also eucalyptus leaves and bark. Gradually, but at Various intervals, the leaves and water showed signs of putres cence and hail to be thrown away. The oak leaves preserve the water for some time, but the water in the pannikins with the eucalyptus leaves and bark re mained perfectly palatable after the lapse of more than four months. The Count also placed some meat in water with leaves of the eucalyptus globulas, and in another pan a pieoe of veal in plain water. After seventy-four hours ...
