Why Wraeh r.reaa o£u. - The "New Age" publishee an interview with 1L Vipot, one of the larget purverore of French literature in London from which we take the following extracts :-Zola, it appears, sells far the best of the French novehlists, though Daudet comes next; and of Zola's works " Nana" sells best, but asl sell largely. "You see," said M. Vipont, "7,ola has easuch a terrifio name foe realism and naut. am that anything he writes is bound to "Is it, then, to his nastiness that he owes his success?" "Chiefly, I think.- Anlthing which is nasty will always sell, and all French novels have the name of being nasty, whether they are or not. No French author can hope to geot on nowadays unless he is thought disgusting,' " But Zola surely has some other attributes, M. Vipont? A wonderful power of analysie an epigrammatio 'ores, a keas observation, wit, eloquence--" "hb. yes ee; I dare say he hus, no doubt! But the public buy him because he's nasty ! 200,000 copies of Nana' have been s...

The Common Lot. Once in the fliaht of eges past. There lived a man-and who was bet Mortal ! howe'er thy lot be cast, That man reaembled thee.

This truth suevives alone That joya ad grief, and hope and fear, Alternate triumphed in his breast, That bliss and woe, and. a smile a tear I' Oblivion hides the rest. The bounding pulse, the languid limb, The changing prit's rise and fall, We know that thee were felt by him. For these are felt by all.

He wanted to gee the animals to Cape Town as soon as possible, and was willing to give us a good price to take them. We were chock fall below hatcher, and the idea of taking the cages on deck was far from pleasant. The agent was a persistent fellow and a good talker, and before we had our water in the captain had decided on taking' the fre...

THE LEADER. JUSTICE TO ALL SATURDAY, IAY 5i, 1888. ELSTERNWICK POST OFFICE. FoR some time past the Elsternwick Improvement Committee have had under discussion the question of a site for a local Post and Telegraph office. The old Post office building, underthe able management of Mrs Atkinson, has not only served its day and generation, but is situated at such a distance from what is now but the nucleus of a thriving and go-a-head township, in close contiguity to the station, that it takes but a dull per ceiver of passing events to conclude that a more central and convenient site must be procured, and that with out delay. Some little time ago a site at the corner of Horne and Runsden streets was under offer at twenty-four pounds per foot, this, it appears, is not now available, but a block on the opposite side ha;s been offered, for which the vendor wants more than double that amount. Recently an In spector from the Post and' Telegraph Department has paid a' visit, .and in looking abo...
