THE MOULDING OF THE MIND. I think we may assert that in a .hundred men there are more than ninety, who are what they are-good or bad, useful or pernicious to society -Irom the instruction they have re ceived. It is on education that depcn-1 the great differences'observable ainor.s them. The least and most impercept ible impressions-;received , in our In fancy have -consequences1 very ? import ant, and of a long1 duration..; It is with these first Impressions as-with a river, whose waters we can easily turn, by different canals, in ' (julic opposite ,ourses; so that from Ihe insensible direction the stream ivcives at its source, it takes different directions, and at last arrives at places rar distant from raoh O'Ikt: and with tho same faci'ity v.-i! n:»y. 1 think. turn the minds of clii Id ion tn what direction we pleaso. -John r.oclto.

PERVERTED. It Is easier to pervert wise sayings than to Invent them, as the following, distorted from tlielr originals by a cynic, will show: Where there's a will, there's a law suit. Don't count your dividends before Ihey are cashed. A man is known by the company he floats. Every doggerel has its day. All work and no play make Jack go on strike.

TESTED BY TRAVEL. "Nothing brings out the lilddec traits ot character in a woman likf travelling," observed a lady who has Journeyed round the world. "Annoyances and inconveniences ol all kinds are bound to occur, and the -woman whose cheerfulness is deep and r«al will not be cast down or made Irritable by them. "On the.contrary, she will rally the spirits of her fellow-travellers, will do Vise methods of remedying the littlu mishaps that occur, stitching up a torn frock, or whiling away with merry talk the inevitable delays, and alwavi her reward is sure.

A calf nine days old would likely weigh about i!01b. more tlinn when born. . For rapid growth the calf bhould liavo nil tho now. inilk it will tnko without digestive troubles, and it should suck it rnlhcr than drink it. To-supplement the milk .there should bo good pasture in summer and ? silnge and clover, or lucerne liny in wintor.

Earth Not Likely to be Dried Up. CHANGE IN HAINFALL DISTRI BUTION MERELY I,OOAL. DROUGHT AND MIGRATION. Combating the -frcquently-advanccd theory that the enrtli is drying up. Professor Gregory, at a Geographi cul Society's meeting held at I Tur lington House, sai<l there was no real evidence of more than local changes in rainfall distribution. As oil increased rainfall had been demonstrated for so many parts of the world, it was only natural to expect a compensating dccrcaso in other ? districts. Prince Kropotkln had attributed the overthrow of tthe Roman Empire to the dwindling rainfall in Central Asia, which turned whole tribes.in to nomads owing to the repeated failures of their crops. " ? - He further contended that if this desiccation of the earth was to go on it must lead to further great political changes, forcing popula tions out of the 'centres' into the continental margins.
