General Notes. Never perhaps in the history of Vic toria was the political atmosphere so charged with electricity. The very mention of State politics sends :, shock through the coummniity, and even the most hopeful cannot but admnit that no matter what the result of the Min isterial elections may e. an!ly G(overn ment is at present camuped on a poli tical volcano. Mr. Wati is iakI in office, but there are by no means wanting signs that in Spit. of atssur ances to illthe contrary. tie Liheral Party is by no means the haIppy unit ed family it is replresented to Ibe. We have Mr. Billson, one of Mr. Watt.'s late team, bitterly exclaimning to his constituents in the North-cast that. he ihas been "thrown to thie wolves.

Lamb and Coleridge, and in this par ticular essay, after referring to Haz litt, Stevenson goes on to say: "I should wish to quote more, for though we are mighty fine fellows nowadays, we cannot write like Hazlitt." One of the most charmning e~says of Hazlitt. is that on Will-making. Haz litt commences in this way: "Few things show the human character in a more ridiculous light than the cir cumstance of will-making. It is the latest opportunity we have of exercis inu. the natural per-versity of the dis position, and we take care to make a good use of it. We husband it with iea!ousy, put it off as long as we can, and then use every precaution that. the world shall be no gainer by our deaths.

Watt, M.P., deliver an address. The chair was taken by the Mayor. Councillor H. J. Richards, who be spoke a fair and impartial hearing for the candidate. He hoped that they would keep up the reputation of Ce. burg. Mr. Watt said it was a very hot night for a meeting. He felt sure there was no necessity to warn Coburg people as to fair play. He had always met that. There were only two can didates in this contest, one represent ing each party. There were two con siderations for democracy, finance and liberty consonant with order. There were frequent temptations to a demo cracy to form bad money habits. Aus tralia would find that the proof of her public life was this question of fin ance.

Suddenly the woman, turning, saw a bull racing down the road behind them. She quickly took refuge in the hedge, but her companion, uncon scious of anught but his woes, kept. on his way. The bull caught up to him and senit him spinning into a muddy ditch, then continued on its wild car eer. As the woebegone figure crawled out of the ruire, he saw his better-half coming towards him. P'lucking up a little spirit, he whim pered "M-Ml-Maria, if you hit me like that a-g-g-gain. you'll really get niy temper up, so I warn 4e."
