For Lear is generally' recognised as the inventor of the Limerick, and the year 1907 is likely to bo remembered in history for ever as the Limerick year. There are many people here and thera who have not tried, I will not say their luok, as the law officers of the Crown have oflicially declared that this is not a gatnc of chance, but their skill in these enterprises.

A man named Falletout said he could stop the barking, and ac tually succeeded in doing so. A week later, however, the barking started again, and M. Rostand recog nised the dismal tones of the leader of the chorus. He summoned FalUetout and questioned him as to his alleged power over animals. Failletout was flattered, and discoursed at large. 'And can you bark like a dog?' asked M. Rostand in innocent admira tion. Failletout demonstrated. 'Ah, I recognise that bark,' said M. Rost and; 'don't let me hear it again at night.' Falllotout departed crestfal len, and no dog has barked beneath M.. Rostand's windows since.

THE ETON BOV. HE GOT HOME SICK. AND 'PLAYED THE WAG.' The utmost anxiety (reports 'Lloyd's Weekly' of 24th November) has been caused at Eton College by the escapade of 'the Hon. William Francis Forbes Semplll, a boy, aged 14, Master of Sem plll, and heir of Baron Semplll, of Cralglcvar Castle, Aberdeeusulre. Suddenly tiring of school life, the boy ran away from Eton ln the carlv hours of Tuesday last, and nothing was heard of him until he turned up at his borne, Cralglevar Castle, Abcrdeenshirc, late on Wednesday night. He was tired, but happy, and bad an exciting story to tell his father of his many adventures since he left Eton. The^flrst news Canon Lyttelton, the head-master of Eton, heard of the boy, for whom the country had been searched for two days, was contained the following brief telegram from Lord Semplll:— 'BiUle home.' When this welcome message from Alberdeen was received the police were told, and the anxious search for the lost heir was ended. He boarded at the house o...
BRICK EDGING FOR WALKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 19 February 1908
BBIOK EDGING FOB WAXKS. Common bricks — ':»' i-- px/^l'p-t edging to walks through dark shrub beries and similar places. These are laid in a diagonal position— one edge and one ffat side, prec-ctlnj* each an angle of 4b degrees to view, or, in other words, thav dm Iftid .with 'm Aniri»-M^pv» tin wards. Being placed deep enough in the ground to allow only about 2 Inches of the angular sids of the brick to be seen, its appearance is -pleasing, and it Is not easily moved. Even a wheelbar row driven over it does no further dam age than chipping the angles off a little. Sweeping and an the other ordinary work' of cleaning a walk only Improve -Its appearance.
