DEAR SIR-May I call your attention to the fact that a plum-tree in your garden has a bough projecting over the wall of my gar- den to the extent of two feet nine inches?

DEAR SIR,-The tree in question has been in existenoe for more than seven years, and, therefore, comes under the Statute of .Limitations.

SCARLETT'S CHARGE AT BALACLAVA. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 February 1898
SCARLETT'S CHARGE AT BALA- &nbsp; CLAVA. Tho bay charger that Scarlett bestrode was of remarkable height and length of stride, and aa soon as he broke into a gallop, Elliot, at his side, called to him that his squadron was dropping behind in the race. But, fully alive to the dominant necessity of striking : at full gallop in a chargo, whioh &nbsp; must lose muc h in any case by its small up- hill nature, he merely turned in his saddle, waved his sword, and, with a shout to his men to * Follow !' dashed past the bridle arm of the Russian officer that stood in advanoe of the foe, and crashed into the column. Elliot was next. Almost level with his chief, but encountering the sword arm of the Russian officer, who, misled perhaps by the conked hat, attacked tho aide-de-camp rather than the General, he stayed for a moment to parry the blow, and thrusting his adver- sary through tho body with such violence, owing to his speed, as to bury the weapon up to the hilt, and swing...

'THE LIVING LUXURY.' [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 5 February 1898
1 THE LIVING/ LUXURY.' Let us sing the praises of the oyster. The Lord Mayor in civic state, escorted by troops and heralded with trumpet and with drum, has been to the oyster feast at Colchester. He and his sheriffs, his mace bearers, and his retainers have done honour to the seat of &nbsp; the oyster trade (though, mind you, a fine Whitstablo is not to be sneered at), and * reminded us that the oyster season is now in full swing You must be a Rothschild, or a specuator in Africans, or a successful com pany monger to indulge an epicurean taste for the famous bivalve in these days, but that is not the fault of the oyster, so let us do the native justice. ' An oyster, sir,' says the Irish epicuro, * is one of the ele ments of social existenoe, a delicaoy of no &nbsp; age, sex, or condition, but patent to the universal family of man. Good in a scallop, better in a stew, best of all in the shell ; good in ploklo,in curry, in sauce ; good at &nbsp; luncheon, befo...

M, JOHNSTON, " GEELONG, VICTOKIA, who writes on the 19th September., 1896; Those who have never had a day's illness cannot know , tho feeling of gratitude that permeates the system of one who, after; days, weeks and_ years of sickness, has been restored to strength and vigor through the discovery of one who has used his brains for the purposes of restoring strength to the sick. I was one of these. For a consider-1 able time J was troubled. with extreme lassitude. I thought it was nothing but laziness, and tried to work it off, but it was of no avail.

CHAPTER IV. x iiKPiaa.-HOW DOW WAS FABIWO.-AH ax OIQTINQ ABTRNTT7BK. To at least one of the resident« at Nolan's farm there was nothing so aoeeptable aa a letter from the north. None of her people suspected how mnoh Florrie Campbell looked for a letter from Donald Preston. It was a fortnight after they parted from Don Preston in Auckland, that they received his first letter, and another fortnight when his second came to hand. In this letter Don said they had been busy, and he was begin- ning to trot used to the bush ; they oalled it ?ballooking' work, which in very truth t was, and unlike anything he had boen used to ; bat the olimato was superb, and he liked his people, who were very kind to him. It seemed very strange to see so few people from one week's end to the other. They were working on the silent forest, but on Saturdays they went into the little township of* Yalpara, and then saw some white faces. Although "there seemed no great danger from Maoris in that part, they had a ...

TO ACQUIRE GRACE OF MOVEMENT [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 12 February 1898
TO ACQUIRE GRACE OF MOVEftTENT Calisthenics is the term we use to desoribe those physioal exercises which tend to pro- mote grace of movement and strength, of body. Calisthenic exercise is the surest method of obtaining a graceful carriage ifor by exercising all our muscles we gain a good control over their voluntary movdiuouts. So often the « tout ensemble' of a pretty woman 5s spoil by stooping shoulders, a oon traoted chest, or a careless, slouohing gait. Now, by devoting a little of our spare time every day to some physioal exercises these same evils may be overeóme. Many and various are the forms of calisthenics. "We are ali familiar wich the simple but, never- theless, beneficial exercises for the arms. The daily use of dumbbells will strengthen all the muscles of the arms and chest, and at the same time promote a free oiroulation of the blood. This is another advantage to be obtained from this exercise. Then there is what is known as the ex- pander. ThiB is formed of a strip ...

DR TAL MAGE AND THE QUEEN". Dr. Talraage in a recent sermon said; - The mnsfc damnable thin? on earth is Amerioan polictics, after men have had itali their own way in (his country for 121 years. I am no advocate fur female suffrage, and I do not know whether it would be best to have it, but I point you to tho Queen of Great Britain and the nation over waioh she rules, as proof that woman may be politically dominant and prosperity reign. God save the Queen, whether now on the throne in Buckingham Palace, or in some time to come in tho American White House. I declare, fearless of contradiction, that the I mightiest champion oE Christianity to-day is the Throne of Englatid."

There are three men to two women in the Sandwich Isles. There , is a man in Berlin who earns a- - livelihood by breeding rats for vivisection I purposes. It is curious to note that among the natives of the Neilgherry Hills the applica- tion of thumb to nose is regarded as an indication of deep respeot. ' Amen * is the strange title given to an. opera whioh bas reoently been produced at ' Brunswick. Its oomposer is Bruno Hey drioh, a well-known tenor. An invisible ink may be made by dis« solving in water equal parts of sulphate of oopper and sal ammoniac The characters become visible under the action of heat. Among the Dyaks, the aborigines of Borneo, no man is allowed to marry till he can show the Bkull of a man whom he has slain. This Beems to be a grimly significant preparation for matrimony. The art of painting in oil was discovered by Van Eyok, of Bruges, towards the end ol the 14th oentury. Nearly all paintings of - any magnitude are now executed in this medium. > It is larg...
VERY MUCH TO THE POINT. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool Herald — 12 February 1898
VERY MUCH TO THE POINT. Tins is the way in which a girl recently dis- poser! of a young man : " You have asked nie pointedly if I cnn marry you, and I have answered pointedly that I can. I can marry a man who makes love to a different girl every month. I can marry a mau whose main occupation seems to he to line up with others in front of the church and com- ment audibly on the people who are compelled to pass along. I can marry a man whoso only means of support is an aged father. I can marry a.mau who boasts that any girl can be won with the help of a good tnilor and an ex- pert tongue. T can marry such a man, but I won't."
