'SHOPPING'.' From Berlin cuwos u statement tint an unfortunate shopkeeper who charged a lady sixpence for tho trouble sho had given when sho had tried on man^ liats and then ieft without making a purchase has beon sent to prison as guilty of "extortion."This suggests the ethics of the subject of shopping as il is carried on. in Kngland. A wr;ter in a contemporary makes out a good case for* tradesmen and assistants against the inconsiderate and troublesome cus tomer. Two departments of tho modern bIioj are especially victimised, he says. Ont is that of gloves, where tho shopman experiences, the difficulty fr.om duai causes. First is the insensate demanc for a very cheap glove, which has mad* one and elevenpence a kind of stan dard price that many will not exceed with the result that they aro "made oi inferior skins allied with ibiperfeel workmanship. Tho other is tho foolish wish to wear a very small size, which leads tho woman who should ask for an~ honest seven to compress her palm...

AIR SCOUTING. Ia actual war, botlx in Tripoli 4*d in the Balkans, aviation accid»ntf were consciously feu', and despite tlip faot that winds were generally high in Tripoli, and tho season of tnc year and tho weather extremely un favorable in tho Balkans. It is a matter of. considerable phychologocial interest to note that tho danger from an enemy's firo so stimulates vigilance that nerves are tense with exertion and the mind is relieved from dwelling upon the ordinary dangers of keeping an aoroplane on an even keel rnd meeting every gust. In other words, scouting in actual warfare seems to bo a splendid euro for nervousness. Tho aviafor must fly with tho assurance of a bird, and ho does so for fear ol Itlio enemy's riflo firo. A striking in 'staco of tliis psychological phenomenon is tho fate of Dr. Jules Constantin, a French aviator in tho Bulgarian ser .vioe. Ho was mortally wounded in the air during a flight abovo Tclijutal ja, but managed to land safely oj,:y tc die before anyon...
