GUN AND TELESCOPE COMBINED. Sodern gunsllll kill at a much great or distance than those manufactured half a century ago, but tills is not suich (n adlvalltago as' it appears to he and for the simple reason that the soldiers of to-day have no better eyesight, than'those who fought in the Crimean War, anld consequently the greater the distance of the tar got the less likelihood is there that it will be hit.

THE HOUSE OF- SAVOY. TRAIB S AND ANEODOTES OF THE LATE KING OF ITALY. " Fear and Savoy have never met." That is the family motto of the reigning house of Italy, and to it every member of the family lives up. It dominated the life of Victor Emmanuel, it dominated the life of Hulm bert, nod those who know himin assert that the samel disregard of danger is a characterin -tic of the new King, who will reign as Vic tor Esmmanuel Ill. With his late Majesty the ilno eited instinct of bravery showed itself when lihe went, while yet in his teons, with his father to be pre sent during the struggle for Italian indepen dence. Later on, it was mlanifected on the battlelield of UGstozza, where he exposed himself so heedlessly that he was nearly killed ; and when Min Ilixio managed to get him into a position of comparative safety, the Prince irritably declared, " 1 shall never forgive you for nout letting me manage tifs affair alone."

COPYRIOGT. THE LOOMS OF DESTINY. BY J. 3IONK FOSTER. CHAPTER XXXVII. DAVID BREAKS THE NEWS. It was the morning following the party at Gotteabury Park, and John Bland ford and his elder son were seated breakfasting alone. As the reader knows. it had been very late-or rather very early in the morning, when the younger non reached home, and, in consequence, Iris kinsmen were prepared to excuse him for sleeping beyond his usual hour. As a matter of fact, it was after two o'clock when David Blandford gained his bedroom. That eminently consider ate young gentleman had insisted that the groom should not stay up in older to house the horse on his young master's return; and by the time David had stabled and fed Charlie, and got indoors, the rest of the inmates were abed and sleeping the sleep of the just-or unjust, fot philosophers seem agreed that there is little more chance of the innocent es. caping the fiends of insomnia than the ngry, but agrratthirst was upon him, and a vast joy was fi...
