THE GREAT SIBERIAN RAILWAY. 4 The last rail of the great Trans Siberian Railway from Moscow to Vladivostock has been laid, and with the completion of this great highway of travel the world is prartically gird led by the empire of rail. Tin's trem endous undertaking was carried to its final success by Russian money and by the Russian Government. With all of its branches and its auxiliary under takings the railroad has cost£78,000, 000. Of this sum not less than £70, 000,000 was expended at the beginning of 1900.

Lord Wolseley, who "is fond of children, was once introduced to a boy four years old. The child gazed at him, with an expression half in credulous, and then said :— * " Are you the Lord Wolseley that fought in the battles ? " "Yes, I was in a good many bat tles," said Wolseley. The youngster looked at him in wondering silence, and then said " Let's hear you holler ! "

A NATURAL HISTORY LESSON. —4— At a recent examination in Batley, a class of infants was being question ed on natural history. "Wliat .bird is it," asked the in spector, "that is found in Africa, and, although it has wings, cannot fly ?"
