"P ERMISKUS PARS." (By Rosvu.) We have been abroad during the Xmas holidays, and we have made sc-veraldiscovgries, andseen manystrange and weird thingia--iot "iihkes. We observed a good deal of the New Woman attlid tleit;ires, and we also made this note therein : the New Woman isn't vet gentlemanly enough tob tike?offler iat at the play. We met her also bounding along the Boorandara-road on her bike, and at staid Geelong again. Perhaps it was an appropriate and natural thing that it should be at Geelong.that we met the New Man too., lIe was accompanying hile N. W. on her iron steed. They sprinted by in glorious style, when sud denly his partner ran into a rut in the road, and whoof ! over went the show. She lay laugling in the dust. "Gerrup," lie foamed, "don't lie -there like tlht." Then-alt, heavens !-he ran up and kicked lier !
