Phosphorus and Its effects. Great a boon as phosphorus has bean to the farmer in connection with the des tiUJtiiui of rabbits, enabling them as it did to keep the pest at least in check, its eifcets by no means have ended with the rabbits. Now that tho numbers of rab bits have been so reduced as to render them almost scarce tho farmers have dis - ? J . 4l,„„ 1..,™ ! nn/i wasted an asset t upou which good money could have oeen realized.

Personalities. PRINCE MTTNKTF.R SfjlPRINCE MUNSTBE, who' was Ger iIvtK man Ambassador to Great Britain from 1873 to 1885 was the son of a famouB Hanoverian statesman of that name, being born in 1820. No am bassador knew so much of Englishmen from a close personal connection as did the Prince. He was born in London, and *-u ? 1 — r ? 1 ? j , , ~ ''™ ucuuro uu came to tne uerman Embassy. He married an EBglish lady, a daughter of the then Earl of Eoaalyn, and he was often mistaken for an Eng lishman, for he spoke onr language well, and was in many of his habits singularly English.

On the annexation of Hanover he became a member of the Upper House of Prussia, afterwards of the North German Con federation, and finally of the Imperial Reichstag. He was appointed Ambas s...
