Terrible Experience. — Ed. Small had a terrible experience at Casino last week. He and his brother had been rounding up some horses, which broke away near home, on Friday afternoon. While going after them Edward's horse fell and unseated him. He was dragged several yards, when his leg was broken. After the horse got away he tried ±o hobble along with the aid of a stick, but the sti'k broke, and he got another nasty fall. He dragged luinself along a wire fence for nearly seven miles to get to a waterhole, but found- it dry. Journeying in the same pain ful way, he reached, another, only to find it dry too. Some miles further he struck water. It was not till the following | day that he was found by his brother. Owing to attacks by ants he had also to go without | food. To add to his misery J ?and pain he cut his cheek open. | on the barbed-wire fence. J Small is now progressing,! favourably. -j

THE BACILLUS AND THE LION. - 1 am no more afraid of a boiled bacillus than 1 am of n ireli-cookei! lion,' says Dr. Alexander Hill, Master of Downiw; Col lope, mid Vice-Clmnccllor of Cambridge. .Now, the authorities affirm that out of 900,000 babies born annually in England and Wales, probably not more than one in twenty lives out his natural life ; and the writer thinks that estimate is too high. All the rest die— bar the few accidentally kille.l— from preventable diseases, such us measles, scarlet fever, small-pox, inQuenzi. consumption, &c, a Inns and dreary list ; all the maladies on it having a fsmily like nets, aud nil arising from, and propagated by, germs. It is likely lint one-third of the cows have tuberculosis', and, of course, people drink the disease in the milk, It really does look as though it would be a good idea to boil the bacillus -as early in his career as possible. If necessary, wo might cook the lions later on ; they ure comparatively harmless, anyway 'T...
