CAPTURER AND CAPTURED ? ?..-.'..?-. - - ,V L ? ?* ''-'--- ?

Mr Per dlcaria. I found Sir Harry a rugged High lander, then in the prune of his man hood; a man of powerful physique, strong, Intelligent, and of resolute will. His position in the Sultan's army was to me a perplexing anomaly — a sort of bewildering anachronism; but it was ira. possible to be five minutes In his com pany without realising that he had be come a loyal, and even devoted servant of this half-clvlllsed master, while re maining every inch a Scotsman and a good subject of the British' Crown.

THE CARDEN. COMMON GARDEN PESTS. However small a garden may be, its owner Is certain to be troubled by some pests, which, If left unchecked, will ruin many choice plants and trees. They must (writes a contributor to tbe Eng lish 'Garden' of ISth July) be promptly dealt with on their first appearance. For applying Insecticides a knapsack sprayer or' a good sized syringe with spraying nozzles Is necessary. Strong mixtures quickly ruin a cheap syringe. Ftor convenience we may roughly class all pests under four beads : 1, Sucking Insects; 2, Biting Insects; 3, Scale ; 4, Pests in the Soli. To the first belong the Aphides -green, black and brown fly), which attack nearly every kind of. fruit tree In early summer, also, roses and many other plants Indoors and out. Outdoors spray with paraffin emulsion made as follows:— Boll one quart of paraffin, lib of Boft soap and a little I water in an old saucepan In the. garden.
