ODDS AND ENDS Egypt When one first lands in Egypt the scene is the freshest imaginable. Wirhin an li«>ur you are launched from the P. and O. steamer, thai has carried home with it to the last moment, and are plunged in a new world. You find yourself in a narrow street of quaintest houses, and in a throng tiiat presses past, each figure in it a picture and a novelty.

. ORROROO CHRONICLE AND NORTHERN ADVERTISER. FRIDAY, MARCH 16, 1888. MOBE alarming than the threatened invasion of Australia by the Chinese is I the report that the disease of leprosy is spreading in Northern Queensland.
