In certain districts after a girl lias reached an agq where her securing for herself a hus band is considered doubtful, she be? comes a "daughter of the King." That is, the King takes upon himself the task of settling her suitably in life, His process is quite simple and to the point. Ho proceeds to the Siamese penitentiary and looks over the various prisoners. There is a law in Siam that any prisoner can obtain his release by , marrying one of this class of girls, ancf , naturally enough, any prisoner whein i the King picks out is not likely to'bo backward about consenting to tRo ? ceremony. Nor does it moke any dif ference if ha is.married, for the moa pf that country ore not Restricted toj pn<jy wifp.

MENTAL DEFICIENCY, . --fr ' ' I If you arc able, to judge accurately' which of two weights is the heavier, you are mentally deficient, according to Dr. Dcmoor, a Belgian physician and scientist. i L)r. Dcmoor doesn't go quite as far as to declare this is an infallible rule, . and you may possess this ability with being, perforce, weak-minded but, in a series, of experiments made by this doctor, those who guessed correctly which of two objects was heavier were known to be weak-minded, while those who made errors in their guesses were | all normal. One experiment along this line of considerable interest was carricd on by Dr. Demoor among 380 'children Svhose ages varied from six to fifteen years. For this the doctor prepared two bottles by covering them with, black paper. These bottles were of different size, which could be told at a glance, but in each bottle the doctor put a heavy - mineral until both the large and the small bottle had exactly the same weight. Tho black covering ! p...

MOTOR FATALITY PRIEST-DRIVER LOSES REASON A fatal motor car accident occurred near Rheims last November. A priest, the Abbe Koelen, of Rheims, was driving a powerful, closed car in which were his mother, his sister, and the latter's three children, aged 12, 13, and 15. The abbe was driving along the high road by the side of a canal, when he mistook the lights of a barge for those of a motor car on the road. He drove towards the lights, follow ing, without knowing it, a sloping road leading to the towing-path. Suddenly the lights of his car shone on water. He put on the brakes, but it was too late to stop tho car, which plunged into the canal. The car floated at first. Help came from a lock near by and from the barge. A horso waB hitched to the back axle and an attempt was made to haul the car up the bank.

The triumph of Mr Watt, and the reconstruction of bis Ministry mean, amongst other things, that in stead of a plunge into socialism, the wage earner will get certain very solid advantages. Amongst the measures that will do much to improve the position of the wage earner,' is one to provide for compensation to workers for injuries occurring in. the "course of their em ployment. Under the old system the worker's chance of securing compenBa tion if disabled at work was very douhtfi}}, £);9 chance of his widow securing compensation if the injuries proved fatal was more doubtful.
