CLAREMONT BROTHERHOOD KXPKRIRXCES IN AUSTRALIA. Speaking at the Claremont Brother hood on Sunday afternoon on the social life of Australia (says the "Islington Gazette" of December 10), the Rev. Victor Bell said that the conditions were very similar to those prevailing in England. lie believed that the ave rage drink bill was greater over here, but there were more drunkards in Aus tralia in proportion. Another failing that was very appar ent in New South Wales was the gam bling habit, and these two were the most difficult and hateful obstacles in the way of its reformers. In Sydney every man and boy seemed to be try ing to get sixpence without working for it. Gambling was degrading and brutal izing numbers of its inhabitants, and he considered that, on the whole, this vice had a far more degenerate effect on a man than drink. The aborigine of Australia had been quick to copy the white man in his vices. The speaker said that in his own township, where 230 acres had been allotted for ...

"THE WITCH" SOUTH RUSSIAN EPISODE By Denis Garstln, in the "Westminster Gazette." "I do not think," said Trophcme, "that she la altogether a witch, but slic Is very awful. She is a hundred and tifty years old, and she has sixty eats. Once she quarrelled with her brother —long ago—and he killed her pet cat, and she did something very ter rible to him; I forget what she did, I think she killed him. He died." j Tropheme is a thoroughly untrust worthy in his narratives, but then no body, except himself, believes them. Whenever I had been to the village Tropheme would hover round my room in the hope of my having brought back some chocolate. The children often used to leave bogus packets about the gardens, and take delight in watching the big-bearded Russian workmen snatch up the empty temptations. The simple crea tures never learnt wisdom or cautiofi against the fraud, until at last even the cnildren took pity on them, and their great faith was rewarded by oc casional sweets. But in part...

Tile Grange, as the late General Halldare's old-fashioned country house in a home county was called, was -ablaze -with early roses, which climbed over the wide lattices ol the lower storey of the south frontage, to festoon themselves .' bout the white curtained dormer windows of the low ceiled bed-chambers. An atmosphere of peace lingered about the square lawns and straight, gravelled walks with their pergolas of thiclc-foliaged creepers, beyond which was an old, low wall, where a pcacock perched and spread his tail in the sun shine, a peahen meekly ambling on the grass at his feet. But within the house, in the old-world boudSir, the room sac red to its mistress, the late General's only daughter, there was no sign of the restfuiness without. A beautiful woman—dark, stately— was pacing the floor, watch in hand, with wide shoulders, yet a sle...
