The fancy dress ball held in the even ing in aid of the hall was an unqualified success, and equalled any other ball of that description held in this or any olth.r district. Music started at 8 p.m., and those in fancy costume arrived in twos end threes, one lot of characters-thoso of swagmen-creating much amuusement, and being well sustained by the following trio :--Mr. E. Barton, as "Poor Old Joe;" Mr. T. Barton, as "Sam ;" and Mr. T. Itobinson, as " Ned."

HEALESVILLE HORTICIUL TUIAL SOCIETY, ANNUAL EXHIBITION. The fourth annual autumn show of the above society was held on Wed nesday and Thursday, and, despite the discouraging serson for an exhibition of such a character, the display was, on the whole, k very creditable one, and the celebration, considering the hundred and one essentials necessary for .a successful result, passed off to the satisfaction of the society and ex hibitors alike. It will be remembered by our readers that the committee, when first arranging for the show, did so in the full knowledge that other similar societies were foregoipg their fixtures this year owing to the season being un favorable, but it was considered by the local society that to follow in the foot steps of such a course would be neces sarily harmful, and so it was agreed to carry out the show as usual. Under such circumstances, the decision of the local society cannot but be commended in its endeavor to foster, to the best of its ability; the inte...

P.rsonally,". said. an old soldieir who had seen a deal of fighting, " I don't believe much in the tales of men who, when they are hit, lie down and think over their past lives, or take a photo. out of. their tunics. That's all very well in books. You don't do it on the battlefield. I will. tell you, however,. what sometimes does happen. A man is mortally.wounded, in. which case, by the way, I rather fancy. he himself feels sure of the fact. It is impossible for his comrades to stay~ by him.

A tremenldous hillet awn:its the hest Englishman going in the Governorship of Sout.h Afriei.

Such a man as Viceroy Curzon, from India, or Lord Cromer, from Egypt, would be morn the stamp than a Roberts or a Kitch ener.
