Jack Bowles and Freddy Bywater. Mat Michel, deep in the morning paper, which dealt with the meaner things of life, added littl to the argument though he heard much of it. A kindly friendship for the absent man put a fait upon his tongue. He was old enough to know that something had happened. "You are not going to tell me that he is taking another lesson," Freddy put it to th philosopher. Mat said that he had not the least idea.

"There is no permanent, tangible or visible bulk or weight," according to Mr. Whitley, who hns ^charge of this work in Canada. Poured into the weigh-can, the milk of one cow loses its identity in the general total. Being a fluid, it is indistinguishable by, i.ls slmpf, f-izii, or colour, and thus is radically dif ferent from other farm product's— the fat steer, the plump chicken, lus cious berries oj- ripe grain.

TALE OF THE SEA ! A sensational tale of the sea was told on the arrival of the Aberdeen barque Inveresk, 1-176 tons, at Queenstown, on Saturday, after being 147 days on the voyage from Portland, Oregon (says "The Daily Telegraph" of January 5). Her poophouse was demolished by a huge wave, and the steering wheel was in a state of complete wreck.

Come quietly I and let me tell you a few things about tea. When you are cold it warms you, and when you are hot it cools you; if you are thirsty it quenches your thirst, and if you are not thirsty, well, then it's a nice enough drink to take 1 every time you get a chance. I'm satisfied of one thing, if people didn't drink anything stronger than Robur tea, we wouldn't have to run so many people in. My advice to you is, drink tea—Robur No. i Grade tea— get it fresh and drink it always, and if you never take any thing else you'll never come to any harm.
