SURPRISED INTRUDER What is the best procedure to adopt when in the middle of the night you lind a burglar in the bedroom? The answer is to follow the example of Mr and Mrs William Uusli, who live in WycHft'e voad, Northampton.

Aniaury Talbot, a district Commissioner in Southern Nigeria, and his wife have just made a remark able journey of over 4,300 miles in the Eket district, a country of rivers and creeks, many unexplored, with a popu la^on of a quarter of million lbibios (says "Tho paily Express").

A pleasant tale is related ot an inge nious gentleman who endeavored to take advantage, for the mole .success ful catching of the sliy trout in a cer tain well-known chalk-stream, of the familiarity which the iisli acquire with a human figure that they often see be side the river, and that is associated with agreeable sensations, such as the sensation of dining well. Possibly tile very fact of this famili arity is not generally known; but it is a fact that is not to be doubted, for it : lias been proved again and again, and may be conlirmed by a visit to the nearest Iisli hatchery, that trout in 1 the nursery know perfectly the man, or tiie men, who feed tlicm. They will come right up to the surface, playing about, expectant of food, when these friendly figures are on the bank. On the other hand, if it be a stranger that approaches, they make oft at once Into their hiding-places. Nor docs it sullice for them that ...

Shortly after ho came to Salisbury the bishop received a letter from a clergyman's wife, stating that they were obliged to live in an enormous house; they could afford no servants, and she (tho clergyman's wife) had to do all the work ot tho house; and at the mo ment of writing they had no coals in tho house.
