To those who have the inclination and the wherewithal, a change of scene and air on a bright genial Sunday afternoon is a thing to be desired. Many there are, however, who conscientiously disbelieve in Sun day travelling, where it entails the loss of the same day to thoseunfortun ate mechanics and others, who have to supervise the motive power which carries the light-hearted travellers to their destination. Then there is an other large class which may have the wish, but not the magic talisman which opens the doors of pleasure and recreation. Aye, and many of them, weary and worn with a week's toil, for a mere pittance which must be car...

BEER. 3 er is isiadt, 'y soaking malt in hot water, boiling the resulting liquor with iiops and fermentiiig the product with ye;st. What is malt ? Malt is made by first moistening barley with water, which causes it to gercinate, and at a certain sta,,e it is transferred to a kiln and dried. Pale malt, for brewving ale, is dried at a moderntely low temperature, and porter derives its color from charred malt, which has been drried at ;a high tempera ture. Malting barley is done with the object of converting the starch of the grain into a kind of sugar. Tihe addition of yeast to the effusion of malt and hops is for the purpose of has te-ing, in fact, setting up fermentation in a few days, fur without yeast it would not take place for weeks. Beer contains fromn 6 per cent. to S per cent. of alcohol and is a refreshing nutri tive, a:nd, in excess, intoxicating drink. The sugar it contains renders it nutritive, and the bitter extract of hops makes it a tonic and appetising. Strong beers, ...
