The opportunity of obtain ing change of residence and change of scene for a few weeks, or even days, in summer or autumnought to be looked upon as a blessing, and we certainly should endeavour to make the best of it. It is not invalids alono nor even the delicate, who are bene fited by an occasiousl change, hat every one who takes a fair share in the bustle and stir of this work-a-day world. Well, then, without further pre face, I would observe that whoever wishes to thoroughly enjoy his trip or holiday, and gain health therefrom, will do well first and foremost to con sider where and how he should spend it.
