The latter believed that there had been in the dim and shadowy past, far back in the records of the world's history, the golden age, when all were happy, when sorrow was unknown, and when the goodness of man and the purity of life made the earth a paradise.

DO YOU SUFFEE from LIVEE COMPLAINT, INDIGESTION, CONSTIPATION, HEARTBUEN, 1 FLATULENCE, Or any symptons of a disordered digestive appara tus ? If so, there is no remedy in the world so safe and Bure to give relief as Fletcher's Pills and Clements Tonic. Don't be misled into wasting time and money on any of the 'All-failing' nostrums so speciously advertised by designing quacks and dishonest rogues. Eemember, these two remedies have stood the test of time, that their merits are proved, and, that a few shiilings invested on them may save you weeks and months of suffer ing, and, perhaps, pounds of expense, for they have done so in hundreds of cases, and we well send you evidence to prove our assertions on receipt of your name and address.

For use as a disinfectant, mix carbolic acid with boiling water. This promptly overcomes the usual antagonism between the acid and water, and converts them into a permanent solution which will keep for weekE. A German engineer concludes that if the speed instetd of a load of freight trains be increased from fourteen to twenty-eight miles per hour the expenses per car mile at the higher speed would be one fourth 'less for repairs and only one fifth more for fuel.

' I must raise money somehow,' he mut teced, ' but how, that's the problem ?' As the words fell from hia lips, his^ eyeB alighted on a grimy and unframed picture tyhich hung above the mantelpiece. It was, ao doubt, an oil painting, but like many other more ambitious efforts in the world of art, it was a very bad oil painting. ll represented au ouwreijr uunuunu oyonoa of the domestic cat, the artist's ideas of form and colour having probably been inspired by an unusually severe attack of mental aberration.

The Meat Export Trade. [ Mr. Mclntyre, ttie Victorian Minister of Lande, improved hie holiday visit to Ifew Zealand by examining the condition and development in that province of the meat export trade. And he has embodied the reBalt of his observations in a report to his col leogues. The story told ia not a new story. But the important circumstance cannot be too often dwelt upon that to the development of this trade NcwZealand mainly owes her present enviable position. Thfrefore a few of the figures and facts given by Mr. Mclntyre may with profit be abstracted from this valuable report. _The rise of the New Zealand meat export trade is indeed one of the moat important commercial incidents of the later years of Australasian history. In ten years the value of meat sent in a frozen state from ISTew Zealand rpBe from £19,339 to £1,194,724. A trial shipment of 4311 carcases of sheep and 59S lambs was made in February, 1SS2, and the mutton realised GJd per lb. In the year 1892 a weight of...

Grandfather Newcome is famous for his stories, or ' yarns,' aB we call them, Nobody has to give him ' notice' or to wait only long enough for him to Bcratch hie shining bald head, rumpling in imagination the hair that need to be there, and settle back in his arm-chair with a perfectly certain ?expression on his dear old face, as if a story ?was the very thing that he was longing to tell. When he is done with ms story, one can not feel solemn, even though one haB listened to a tragedy, or attended funerals. Ton cannot be harrowed by his ghost BtorieB, or frightened by hia narrow eBcapeB from ' natives' in early times. Somehow you feel that they are all ' made .up,' and you are .ready for another right away ; so is Grandfather Newcome himself. One story suggests another, and they are turned out in large numbers, as newspapers from the printing press. He invariably begins in this wise : ' Once, a long time ago, I'm not certain juBt what time of year.' He never ...

He was oondemned to be shot on the following dav, and was fastened with ropes in side a hut at some distance from the camp fire. During the night he slipped his bonds, crept to the place where the Boer horses were stabled, saddled and bridled two of tho best of them, and made his escape from under the very noses of the Dutchmen. A day or two afterwards he met a Boer, who was personally unacquainted with him, who informed him that he was looking for ' Scotty Smith.'
