The journey from Cape to Cairo is no small matter, even for a seasoned traveller, and Miss Mary Hall may certainly be proud of having accom plished the feat. She tells us (says the ' Westminster Gazette') in the introduction of her book, in which ctta raintoc knr- ovnoriAn^na *--f Viap journey, that she is the first woman of any nationality who has accom plished the entire journey, which gives additional - interest to her narrative. Miss Hall docs well not to dwell on the better-known, fea tures of the journey and to resorve her space for a description of the Africa of Livingstone and Stanley. Wo shall, however, find a good de scription of the Victoria Falls and a journey to Bulawayo in the first pact of the first chapter, which is in troductory to the journey through Central Africa. The first trip, which was taken in the year previous to the greater trek, gave Miss Hall the information ' which she desire...

Probably as a protest against the decision of the magistrate a largo number of University College stu dents assembled last evening, and for an hour or two indulged in some thing approaching a University Their first move was to secure the famous figure of the ' snuff-taking Highlander' which keeps watch and ward over tho entrance to Messrs.

JOHN BURNS. BIG IDEALS. WORKMEN AND HOLIDAYS. Mr John Burns, M.P., speaking at a crowded meeting at Burnley on 27th No- ' vember, at which he distributed the prizes to the students of the Municipal Technical School and School of Art, said the advantages ot education were first realised by that very prescient and pushful nationality the Scotch. | Rlirt V t\ar nant *»P f Via ntucanf ^2j*^T*iY«n_ ment were Scotch. (Laughter.) He appealed to employers to be more considerate to their men, to extend the holidays of foremen and leading hands, and to send them through the Continent of Europe as Industrial Autolycuses, snappers up ot unconsldered trifles. That would help the foremen, and Incident ally develop the Industries. They wanted unskilled labor, lowly paid labor, to be better treated, to be decasualised. As Minister for Unem ployment he could eay it was not true that a man was too old at forty. Sixty per cent of the men who applied for work at Distress Committees were un der forty, b...

EGER1A. A STORY AND 'A STUDY. (From the German, of Marie von Bbner Eschenbach). On my Swiss tour I met a remarkauie married couple. . As soon as the man opened his mouth his wife would say, 'You were going to remark — '. and straightway followed some witty or intelligent observation. His thoughts before a great landscape or noble work of art were clothed In words by her. He only nodded deep ln thought ana said, 'Quite so!'. One day, she was not well and he came alone to the table d'hote. His manner was as usual, but one noticed a certain u-emming ot nis lert nana, a Deauuiui hand, flexibly turned at the joints. He maintained an almost shy silence, and when anyone was telling a story as sumed an appearance of kindly interest, and, with raised eyebrows, ejaculated several times, 'Indeed! Indeed!' That was all, and hardly flattering to the story-teller. It was my fortune to choose the same travelling route as the pair, so that we dally came together in railway carriages, hotels, and In...

Slowly the workers returned, with spade over shoulder, carrying baskets and spud— j loitering here and there to pass, the time of day.
