The situation in India has not for years shown such a menace of serious uprising as it does to-day. Attacks and attempts on the lives of Englishmen, officials and civilians, are of almost daily occurrence. Lord Minto, the Viceroy of India, returned to Calcutta the other day from the North, cutting short his excursion in this territory for the purpose of considering measures to cope with the native disaffection, which officials have been forced to recognize as alarmingly on the increase. One night a Bengali made an unsuccessful attempt to kill Public Prosecutor Hume with a bomb in a railroad carriage near Augurpara. There were three other Europeans in the carriage at the time.

VANITY. Th iuti comes up and the sun goes down And day and night are the same as one ; The year grows green, and the year grows brown, And what Is It all, when all is done? Grains of somber or shining sand, Gliding into or out of the hand. And men go down in ships to the seas, And a hundred ships are the same i one; And backward and forward blows the breeze, And what is it all, when all is done? A tide with never a shore in sight, Getting steadily on to the night The fisher dropped his net in the stream, And a hundred streams are the same as one. And the maiden dreameth her love-lit dream, And what is it all, when all is done? The net of the fisher the burden breaks. And always the dreaming the dreamer wakes. His Voice We all have our little weaknesses: we all fancy ourselves particularly good at something or other and probably we are nothing of the sort I remind you of this because I don't want you to laugh at Bob Pengelly too much, as, apart from his one little delusion he was rea...
