Good-Bye. We aay lb for an hour, perhapa for years, We say it smiling, aay it choked, with tears ; We aay.it coldly, say it with a kiss. And yet we have no' other word than this — Good-bye.

Alike to thctee we love and those wo hate, We say no more in parting. Ac life's gate, ? To' him who passes out beyond earth's sight, t . . We cry as to the wanderer for.a night Good-bye.

One Every Time. An old 'beer-chevyer' started home one night in his normal condition with a turkey which he had bought for his Sunday dinner. . ' The .road was rough, and he fell several times over all sorts of ob structions in the path, dropping the turkey each time, but picking it up again. Entering his house, he steadied himself as well as he could, and said to his wife : ' Here, wifey, I've brought you eleven turkeys.' . ' Eleven turkeys !' cried his wife ' I see but one.' 'Nonsense, you're blind,' cried her good man. ' Why, I. fell down eleven times coming home, and I swear I picked up a turkey every time I' Professor: 'Too bad!

The Last of the Pirates; DOOM DRIVEN, A Romance of the End. of Ocean Outlawry.* ' ? ♦— — : — By Col. Prentiss Ingraham, Author of ' Merle the Mutineer,' &c., &c. CHAPTER XXXV. ? ? a woman's despair. Basil Barton was almost a changed man after his interview with Celeste. - Bad she stormed at him, upbraided him, and told, him that she hated him, then he would have met her with scorn and indifference. . But her forgivenness of him, not-, a word of censure falling from her lips, almost unmanned him. At first he tried to believe that she was treacherous, playing a part for revenge, as the poor Cuban girl had done. But this thought he was soon compelled to dismiss. He rose from his kneeling posture by her, and ordered breakfast served for thfem. Neither ate much, and at last he made an excuse to go on deck. He was glad to escape from her presence. His men saw that his manner was subdued, and those who had their suspicions that the ringleader of the plot to betray him and h...

Humorous Column. Took the Little Man's Part. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 19 October 1899
Hnmoroos Column. Took the Little. Man's , Part. A Bailor whose Bhip had been paid off at Sydney took the tram for Waterloo. Before he entered the tram he armed himself with a battle of rum, so that when he arrived at his destination he was very mixed. ' Waterloo 1* shouted the conductor. - Au rignc, never mma aDouc tne ' water,' let's have some more rum,' replied Jack. At last they 'emptied' Jack out of the carriage. Slouching along towards Botany, he saw two men busily engaged in Bawing a block of wood with a cross cut saw in a wood and coal yard. One man was very tall and the other very short. After looking at them for some time through half-closed eyes Jack entered the yard, and, without any warning, knocked the tall man down. ' ?What's that for?' shouted the injured man.

The Battle of Life. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 19 October 1899
The Battle of Life. Thanks to that constant source of knowledge, the microscope, two dis coveriea of more than usual importance and interest have been made by scientists recently. In Paris. Dr. Bra has sue- j ceeded in isolating and rendering visible the microbe of that dreaded disease, cancer.;' While in India another physi cian, Dri Ronald Ross, was able to watch a battle to the death, between a burglarious microbe in the shape of the malaria microbe, and one of the police men of the human body, a white blood, corpusole. From those two interesting, but to the lay mind unimportant, achievements, great things are predicted by bacterio logists. The discovery of the specific microbe of cancer, it isdeclared, heralds the elaboration of an anti-toxin which will care that disease. Work has already been done along this line, and some ? measureof success' has been attained. The result of this certainty is that future methods of treatment for all germ diBeaaea, notably such as consumption a...
Ensilage [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 19 October 1899
Ensilage The making of ensilage ia a matter every farmer can turn his attention to profitably, green stuff of any kind loses quite two -thirds of its weight when made into hay ; that is, three tons of green wheat or wild oats will make a ton of hay. The daily ration of^en eiage per cow per day. will be about 601b. At this rate 3 tons of ensilage, the quantity of stuff required to make a ton of hay, .will feed a cow for 112 days. A cow so fed should produce lib of butter per day, say 1121bs for the 3 tons of eneilage consumed. This quantity of butter at 7d per lb would be worth 65s A very great quantity of wheat and oatB is cut every year for hay, which makes very poor feed for . working stock, but which if turned into silage would be very valuable fodder for cows, pigs, and even sheep.
Laughing Plant of Arabia [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 19 October 1899
Laughing Plant of Arabia A curious plant grows in Ar:,b!a and in parts of the Western frontier of IJindostan. It is popularly known as the laughirg planf. The plant is of moderate s'zp, with bright yellow flowers and soft vekoty eead pods, each of which contains two or three seeds resembling small black beans. The nafives dry these seeds and reduce them to powder, A small dose causes the soberest man to dance, shout and laugh with the boisterous excitement of a madman, and to rush about cutting the most ridiculous casers for about an hour. At the expiration of this time ex haustion sets in and the excited person fall* asleep to wake after Beveral hoars with no recollection whatever of his onticF.

If you want a coucli uphol&terod take it to Shakespeare's.* Phlegmatic subjects aro more likely to ex perience home-sickneEs than their sanguine compeers. A tendoncy to despond without subserves l owards home-sickness, but ardent, enthusiastic people who continually look forward — who never are, but always to be, blessed — have the advantage, if advantage it be, of remaining immune. Education, or rather the want of it, is more potent than temperament in the trend of civilisation, which is equivalent to education, being die tinctly in the direction of cosmopolitanism.

THE STORYTELLER. A BITTER PENITENCE. CIIAPTEIi XY. — (Continued.) She buried her faco in her hands as she eobbed, and Una, rising herself a little higher, gently laid her hand upon the bowed head. Thero was a strange look upon her face — a look of mingled envy and wonder. She had passed the stage when erief can find a blest'ed relief in tears. Her glit tering,, eyes were dry— her head seemed clasped by a band of fire. 'I wish I could cry, Norah ' she said. 'My dear, try! Try, Una!' 1 Nol* Pushing away, the tender arms that Would havo embraced her, she stood erect, preesing'one hand over her forehead, And holding the other with her usual gesture to her throat. 1 1 wept so many tears when ?ne wafj born,' 6he Baid, ' that I have none left now thatsheis dead.'

Red Hair Lasts Longest. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 19 October 1899
Red Hair L,asts Longest. We never remember seeing tho fringe of hair- that usually surrounds a bald head, of a ruddy colour. And we are now told that statistics Bhow that persons with red hair ar« far less likely to become bald than those who have another colour. Hair of a dark colour is generally much finer than red hair, and three dark hairB cover as much space as a single red hair. As a rule, a dark haired person has about 105,000 hairs on the skull. Fair haired person?, on the other hand — men as well as women — have from 140,000 to 10,000. Tho strongest hairs, however, are those of a red colour, and hence they endure the longest. It may be added that red-haired persons are gener ally of an unsympathetic and passionate nature, and are, as a rule, far more apt to be optimists than pessimists.
The Face Tells the Occupation. [Newspaper Article] — Wellington Times — 19 October 1899
The Face Tells tlie Oc cupation. A man's occupation or condition has often more to do, with mating his face tbau moBt people think. Intellectual pursuits, .-like the studies of the scholarly profession, when coupled with temperate and good moral habits of life, brighten the faco and cive the person a refined and dignified look. Mag nanimity of nature or tbelovo of study aud art will make a bright, g'ad face, but con trary to this, a man may have a faco that does not please anybody, because of a love of self to the exclusion of others, notwith standing his learning and worldly shrewd ness. Soldiers get a hard, severe look ; over worked labourers constantly look tired ; re porters look inquisitive; mathematicians look- studious ; judges become grave, even when off the bench ; the mau who has had domestic trouble looks all broken up. An example of tho ludicrous side of this sub ject is to see a third-class lawyer stalking around a police court, looking as wise as an .owl. - The busines...
