Discourtesy. The Oriontals complain, says tho Goulburn Penny Post, and apparently not without reason, of a want of tho usual courtesy accorded to a visiting olevon, on tho occasion of tlioir trip to Moss Valo. Tho weathor was oxceodingly wot, and till tho afternoon, of couvso, it was preposterous to think of playing ; but whon tho weather cleared and tho olevon betook themselves to tho ground, not a sign of tho Moss Valo cricketers was to bo scon, nor indeed woro thoy soon during tho wholo timo of tho Orientals' stay Micro. It will bo remembered that whon tho Moss Valo toam camo to Go.ilburn it was vory wot; but nevertheless, the Orientals played and treated their opponents as well as could bo wisliod for under tho circumstances.

FACTS, FUN, AND FANCY. Mills in the Glen Inuea district cannot supply the demand for timber. A little French girl was lately asked why she no longer lilted her doll. The answ&lt; i was, " Because it vexes mo to sec it better dressed than myself." A young man sent twelve stamps to an advertiser to learn how to make money fast, and was advised in reply to glue a five-poii'nd noto to the bottom of his trunk. A man having solemnly declared he had seen a ghost, was asked what it said to him; at which ho petulantly exclaimed, " How should I know ? I don't understand the dead languages." Miss Emily Faithful, in a lecture which she delivered in Edinburgh, called attention to tho fact that out of 27,000 of the last re cruits to Mormonism, 20,000 came from Great Britain.
