Salmagundi CtttlcsroJ At Sydney the 0th|r week there was unveiWd tlie statue of Scotia's singer of national songs. What need is there for any monument to perpetu ate the memory of Bobbie Burns? He lives, and -will live in the memory of Scotia's sons and daughters, not be cause he was a poet, but be eause he found the words to express what is the spirit of the land of his birth. As a man he is dear, not only to the Scot, but to the great bulk of hu manity who will ' aye ' keep a warm corner for the libertine who laughs his way through the world. Probably a century hence Australia will realise that we have had a poet who deserves a monument in marble or bronze: A poet is like wine ; the longer he is bottled up the better he tastes. * * * A paragraph in the last issue of TheLeadek auouncing the names of the gentlemen nomi nated for the vacancies in our Municipal Council, la belled three of them as contest ing the Reform interest.
