Cordova, we found, was u. thorough Spanish town all over, from its pointed pavement to its cbimnnyless roofs, with its grated balconies, and its green blinds.

Topics of the Week. Inland readers of the metropolitan press are no doubt embarrassed by the conflicting comments and the contra dictory reports. Mauy want still to know which' papers are telling the truth. Well, as it has been .ibund antly shown that the Daily Telegraph on January 28 last, the eve of the conference of Premiers, supported a ' secret conference' and notwithstand ing its complete exposure, still dubs the Amended Bill with sinister intent the ' Secret Conforenco Bill' through out its columns, the fair-minded elec tors must see on which side of the metropolitan press fearless truth has ~ An.,i n*-,A cVinivinlnea m on A n -*-! f, V lfl given publicity.
