NEW CARICATURIST. EXHIBITION OF CHARACTER DRAWINGS. Mr Max Beerbohm (writes the "Dally jMntr of 18th February), who for some -.years has occupied a unique position .among living Britidb caricaturists, will have to look to his laurels, for in Mr ;H. Ospovat, whose group of drawing [forms the leading feature of the "annual exhibition of portraits and caricatures" at the Ballllo Galleries in Baker street, a serious rival has arisen, who threatens fto dispute "Max's" supremacy., Like all true caricatures, Mr Ospovat's ore based upon the close study of char acter and expression, and upon .the seiz ing and exaggerating of the most char acteristic feature and movement. "Max's" art is based upon the samo principle, but not as exclusively as Mr Ospovat's; for "Max" revels in grotesque situations and literary allusions, the ap preciation of which .demands an intim ate knowledge of the caricatured per son's life and foibles and croative ac- . tivlty, while Mr Ospovat depends alto gether upon h...

Berrigan News. The Typhoid patients with the exception of young Allan Jarrett are all doing well'. His condition is still causing great anxiety to his people. Old Mother Earth has taken to "'The Wearing of the Green" again, we congratulate her and ourselves for her transformation from the bleak and arid to the verdant and beautiful. ?We had a concert here last Fri day in aid of the.Cricket Club. The promoters informed the public, through the press, that they would have to hold their sides, the fun would be so great. They told the truth, it certainly was a jovial as semblage. In the first' place some of the singers could not turn up, so some ydung gentlemen, slightly bibulous, volunteered their services, were accepted, and their appearance on the stage was the signal for up roarious mirth, especially from the hoodlum division. One of the gentlemen sang six songs and when encored sang the whole lot over again, some benighted individual thought if was possible to haye too much of a goo...

Til ft BITERS HIT. This is a story of. *£. "boomerfing^ joke," The return hit therein cited is certainly decisive and deserved. It never pays to toll people that they do not look well. A young man in a cortain office put up a joke on ti\e book keeper, .who was a quiet, steady, seri ous chap. The joke was for everyone to toll the victim that he looked very, very had indeed. It was wondered what offect this would have. It was a hot August morning when the joke began. The office-boy started it. "Ain't ye well, Mr. Quill?" ho said. "Yes, of course. "Why?" ""Why, ye look so pule," said the hoy. "I feel all right," said Quill, calmly, and he put on his office coat and set to work. But when a shipping clerk told him ho looked ill Quill frowned and said he had had a tyid night, that was nil. "When tha cashier asked him what made him have such a queer colour he said his heart felt strange. For an hour Quill was so tormented with anxious inquiries, full of gloomy foreboding about his health. ...

CANINE PECULIARITIES. * Whatever opinions people .(writes thb "Westminster Gazette") may'have about human and animal psychology, there Is no doubt that animals, like human be ings, display varying qualities. Somo make, themselves loved, others hated. There is, for Instance, a dog, only a mongrel, and therefore having no pedl groo value, ot Maidenhead^ which bp longs to no one In particular, but to the human world around him? at large, by a, sort of mutual adoption. .So popular Is he that for threo years the residents In 1 the streets In the immediate nelghbor-% hopd; of where "Jack" llve3 have got up a smoking concert.to pay for his licence, and Jack himself Is taken to the enter tainment and sits- by the chairman, gaily dccorated with ribbons.
