.LiIVOUtCE B IV MUTUAL ('OSEN'r. A proposal to the efTect that the tight of divorce by miitt nal consent should be re-established has been adopted by the judicial s'ub-conunit tee of the French committee which is inquiring into the depopulation problem. To secure a divorce the couple would have had to be mar. ried at least two years and not more than twenty, the woman being under forty-five years (old.

A GHEAT LUNAtCY E~Xt'Llnf. One of the greatest of lunacy cx perts is Sir Thomas Smith-Clous ton. At a recent meeting of a medical society Sir Thomas tolld the fol lowing story : A certain man got into serious trouble, and in his defence pleaded insanity. ITe was actually certified as insane by two doctors and sent to an asylum. The authorities, however, were dissatisfied, and Sir Thomas was invited to examine the man. On arrival at the asylum, Sir Thomas was informed by an attend ant that the patient spent much of his time in attentively reading a green-bound book. This proved to be a copy of the great expert's cli nical lectures. In the chapter on "Delusional Insanity" every one of the symptoms the patient was nmanifesting was underlined. The plea of insanity was not sus tained. Two women who had not seen each other for many years met un expectedly in the street. ".How do you do ?" exclaimed one, effusively. "Now, this is delightful !" .said the other, who was. the - elder. " You h...

Indian Reserve. .W'anting to' buy a saddle pony and not.. being able. to procure one from any of the neighbouring settlers, I decided to try the Indians, or Niches. To do so I should have to visit their reserve.

You leave yourself no time for rest or enjoyment. Then there is the difficulty of travelling with him without provoking unpleas ant comment. How will you get over the absence of name?

Why Cocoa is the Vegetable Egg. [Newspaper Article] — Brunswick & Coburg Leader — 23 January 1914

Why. Cocoa is the Vege table Egg. Cocoa can be compared to a vegetable egg, because, like the egg, it contains everything necessary for the building of the animal body. When we analyse cocoa we finid it a perfcct natura. food. Analysis teaches us that it contains a fair proportion of nitrogenous matter in: the shape of gluten, a very large proportion of fat, a consider na et^fimount of starch, so much nineral matter, and, finally, a sti mulant of its own called theo bromine. Cocoa is an excellent substitute for tea or coffee, especially to those who, are over-stimulated by these beverages. Pure cocoa is easily digested. But be sure that you get it pure. Avoid all such prepara tions of cocoa in which other substances have been mixed. If you find that one brand of cocoa does not agree with you, try another until you find the one which is best fitted for your constitution. Cocoa was discovered by the Spaniards when they first landed in Mexico, being there used by the na tives in large ...

Mc Shane was top scorer with 16, and, to wards the finish, Outen got 14 vigor ously, and Vernon Gladstones (from the club eleven) 12. O'Loughlin took five for 34, and McKenzie, who swerv ed a lot against the wind, five for 41, In 130 minutes Brunswick gave a good dlisplay of batting, losing only three wickets for 180.
