Sandy soils naturally lose ieort water by draln r age than clay soils, but It has beeo ob served that In thYhelgfet of summer the ,' drainage from clay iboHs has been ? ' greater. This arises from the fact that the evaporation tram clay soils is greater in hot weather, and that In winter the frost stops the drainage.

'THE CORROSIVE PRESS.11 ? A FUBVIC DANGER.* Dr K. J. Horton writes the follow ing 'open letter to the editor o£ tht London 'Daily News':— I Sir,— In examining the papers which offer lotteries to the public, thinly veiled under the name ol 'competi- tions,' I became aware that it Is by no means the only demoralising pra;Uce which this section of the Press has in vented. In the race for wealth, ami the effort to secure a wide circulation, these journals appeal not only to the cupidity, but to the prurience of the public. This, unhappily, is particularly marked In the Sunday Press. I am credibly informeS that the sub editortal staffs of some of these papers are instructed to relegate unemotional news to unimportant parts of the itjuu. and to give prominence to the sen«i tional items, dressing them up in the most lurid language. I am told that one ot these Sunday journals secured I is financial success by its reputation for sensuality, and that In several of theui ? the subreditors are ...

A VETERAN RAILWAY ENGINE. The American-habit of 'scrapping' old . machines haa Its exceptions, writes the ^Westminster Gazette.' There was In regular use until a few weeks ago a railway engine ,the 'Texas,' which dis tinguished herself on 12th April, 1862, by enabling the Confederates to pursue sue- .. MiMhttin n vmmlier of Northern raiders. If contemporary accounts are to be be-, lieved, her speed on that occasion would be creditable even nowadays, for in IS minutes the pursuers covered 60% miles, made twelve stoppages, and switched off two cars which had been dropped by the fugitives. The 'Texas' hss lately been used In the service of the Western and Atlantic Railroad. She has been pur chased by public subscription, and Is to be placed oB a pedestal at the entrance to Grant Park In Atlanta. _

Be writes of what would have happened If Napoleon had won the Battle ot Waterloo, and what would have happened, according to him, with the- speedy liberalisation of all Europe under the auspices of ; the French Emperor. j The legend of Waterloo, which Vic tor Ilug-o has done so much to ex- j tend, is agreeable to the pride ol the French people pnd flattering to the cult which defies Napoleon.
