Wasted -Economy. A tourist was stranded In Norway with only enough money in his pocket to pay his passage back to England. tie thought the matter over, and came to the conclusion that he would buy the ticket, and that as a sea-trip only lasted a couple of days he yould go without food that length of time. He realised that If he stayed in Norway till his money was spent he would never be able to get back home' So he went on board the steamer and bought his ticket. lie closed his ears to the sound of the luncheon bell, and when dinner-time came, and a fellow passenger asked him to accompany him to the dining-room, he politely de clined on the ground that he felt somewhat unwell. The next morning he skipped break fast by getting up late, and at lunch time he kept to his room. At dinner time that evening, however, he was so hungry that he could have eaten a pair of shoes. "I am going to eat," he said, "cven if I am thrown overboard afterwards. I might as well be drowned as starved tc, d...

Ladies' Column. -4-C- WONDERS OF A SMAL. FI~lt I'. Is it not obvious that the fruit which gives character to s.uch a noble preparation as the Christmas ptudding must be something tmor. thanl ordinary? The ChristM.si pudding of the llritLsh Isles is world-famous--and jstlJy so. Imia-. gine what it would be like without currants. The mere, suggestion makes one. shudder! That famous institu tion owes [its fine flavour to the prtsence of currants. Other well known sweets similarly indebted are the mince-pie, the Eccles cake, the currant cake, and a host cf others. A general principle that holds good in all circumtnstances is that where there are currants there is sweetness-and what a sweetness, what a charming, caressing flavour is in th' fruit'I Of course the nie of the fruit is most beneficial to health, to say nothing ol the eco 1nooy of it. The following season able recipes have been specially pre pared by at lending expert in 'o niestic cookery ';

Not Her Sort. After he had fallen upon his knees and kissed her hand slie said: "Before I answer 'Yes' or 'No,' there are some things I would like to ask you. Do you ever drink or gamble?" "No," he eagerly replied. "I do not know what the taste of Ifquor is; I have never defiled my lips with to bacco. I have never uttered a profane word in my life. I have never even played bridge where a prize was at stake." She looked at him thoughtfully for a moment, drew a long sigh, and then asked: "Have you ever broken a woman's heart?" "Ah. how can you ask me that?" he almost reproachfully answered. "If I had ever spoken words of love to another I would not deem myself worthy to touch the hem of your gar ment. I have never cared for anyone but you. I have never kissed any wo man except my mother. I have never given any girl cause to utter one sor rowful sigh.

A "catch"' or "stolen" crop is one that is grown between the regular nnxuial crops of the'rotation, and" which is not considered the main crop of the year. ' The chief crop of the year occupies the ground during, the sunumer months, while the catch or "interpolatel" crop has its active period of growth in the autumn, andi perhups also in the spring. In market gardening the practice of growing interpolated crops is quite common, but in or dinary agriculture it is restricted In cold and temperate climates, and is only: extensively practised in warm countries surli as Italy, where numterous secondary crops are suc cessfully grown uafter the ordinary corn harvest.
