He had been associated with the game in Northcote for upwi rds of 12 years and co tld say there was more enthusiasm yhown in the past with their junior clubs than with the prcsentsenior one. This showed there must be something wrong some where. The members must decide between themselves as to the best means of buttering the sport.

Know what spur the action gives; Often we should And it better, Purer than we judge we Bhould— We should love each other better, It we only understood. Could we judge all deeds by motives, See the good and bad within. Often we should love the Binner, All the while we loathe the sin. Could ive know the powers working To overthrow integrity, We should judge each other's errors With more patient charity. If we knew the care and trials, Knew the effort all In vain. And the bitter disappointments Understood tho loss and gain; Would the grim oxternal roughness Seem, I wonder, just tho same? Would we help where now we hinder? Would we pity whore wo blamo?

80ME 8ALUTATI0N8. Tho prostration and tlm GaJaam, sal utations tlmt many Orientals use, aro only more pronounced forms of tho how. So there is a connection between tho ombraee, so common in civilised countries, and tiio greeting of a mom l>er of the Koiari tribe of liriti«h New (iiiinea, who, in saluting a missionary, placed ono arm alum this nock and stroked him under the chin. Among the Masai and tho I'kerewo it is a mark of respect to greet an ac quaintance or a stranger by spitting at him. Almost as strange is the cus tom ascribed to the Tibetans of putting out tho tongue by way of salutation. Knbbing noses is quite common; tho Burmese and many tribes of Kskimos, Laplanders, and Malays do so. I Stranger than any of theso customs is tho -weeping salutation that has been ! observed among Central South Atner | icnti Indians, TlitV* form of greeting I occurs too in the Andaman Islands, | New Zealand, and Polynesia.
