Work on the farm and station, though never at a stand still, yet affords a breathing space, and the annua] pay-day, so far as rural producers are concerned, having ar rived, a longing eye is turned towards the metropolis. So as to allow that happy combination between 'business and pleasure which justifies a little un usal expenditure, 'the V.R.C. comes forward with its usual autumn pro gramme full of rich things for race horse owners and the public alike. Country visitors and town residents alike can, during that first week in March, throw care to the winds and forget for a while that there are such things as ever-wangling Parliaments, industrial disputes, or any other of the thousand and one troubles that go to mar the pea...

His pony was a black one, with a long, shaggy mane. "Captain" was his name, and he was "a wee pony for work." One day, when Lauder was seated in the "hutch" which the pony was draw ing, the animal suddenly stopped and wheeled round, and immediately after wards several hundred tons of rock fell from the roof on to the spot ■where he would have been had the animal continued on its way.
