So much is human and so little saint ; Satan stands ready our weak souk to gain When we are crushed with our losses and pain, Oh, where for comfort and help shall we flee, If not to Thee.

Hear the sentence: ? *'In the 6weatt»f thy face shalt thou eat 'bread ?until thou return unto the ground.' I am not Bure, however, that this allotment is a con demnation. Charles Lamb said, you know, that Adam lucidly sinned himself out of the garden I I am not certain about the cause of his departure, but I am positive that Adam, as a man, would probably have died of weariness had be remained in that garden always without work. It takes the simon-pure tramp to find the same pleasure in doing nothing that most men discover in doing something ! Adam had not the instincts of the tramp in this respect. Therefore he did well to go out of Eden. Personally I attach slight histori...

LADY GODIVA: INDIAN VERSION These are 6ad times for the most cherished theories. The latest to be exploded is the legend of Lady Godiva, the 'quite English' character of which has been hitherto con sidered unassailable. Not only is the original story claimed for India, but a recent incident in the Poona district is quoted to convince ua that there is nothing in the traditions of the country to prevent the Coventry proces sion taking place in the Bombay Pre sidency, in the present year of grace U occasion arose, l'rom certain revisionajy proceedings in the Bombay High Court ib would seem that a cultivator in the Poona district,. whose wife was certainly less loyal to her lord than the fair wife of Leofric, Earl of Mercia, has lately been charged in the local magistrate's court with an outrage upon her self-respect which left nothing undone to com plete her shame.

BULGARIA. THE CZAR'S TERMS DECLINED. London. November 1. It is reported that Prince Ferdinand of Bulgaria has declined to accede to the demands made by Russia in return for the reconciliation with Bulgaria, in so far as the terms affect the religion of his infant son Boris.

M. BOURGEOIS. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895
M. Bourgeois. M. Jean Baptiste Bourgeois was born in 1831, and has throughout his political career, which only dates back to 1885, been a promi nent Radical, though he is at the same time a man of culture. He believes in looking to the interests of France at home rather than to the increase of the Empire. M. Bourgeois is of advanced views, and the new administration will therefore be one which will devote itself to radical reform.
