At the last moetirg of the Numurkah Water Trust the following letter was dealt with From Dpartment of Agriculture, forwarding Lesult of the anyalysis of water sent from Nathalia and Numur kah weirs : Numurkeh-This sample is of fairly good quality. Exception may be taken, however, to the content of nitrogen as ammonia, which is higher than is generally found in ordinary domestic supply water.

THE MAN WITH THE MEASURE LINE. AND THE INVISIBLE GITY. For his morning text the Rev Mr Smith took Ephesians vi, 16: "Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked." In the afternoon Mr Smith conducted the anniversary at Grahamvale; and in the evening, at the Methodiet Church, Maude.street, his text was Zecharish ii, 1 to 4: "I lifted up mine eyes again, and looked, and beheld a man with a measuring line in his hand," etc. The preacher dealt forcibly with his subject, which was based on the man with the measuring line; and Jerusalem as the invisible, the immoa eurable and impregnable city. He re. ferred to the optimism of the young men who was to measure that city; and speaking on the supremsoy and pre dominance of things unseen, contrasted the teaching of Darwin, Herbert 8pen cer and Huxley with those of Professor Oicken, of Germany, and Professor Paul Pergson, of France.

Mrs. Bellairs waited anxiously for her husband. She wanted to tell him what she had done, but at the same time she honestly drealled imparting her news, for if there were an up right, steadfast, high-principled mlan, it was Peter Bellairs.

It is, of course, still in the experimental stage, but its success, we consider, is assured by what has already been achieved.

REMARK'ABLE SURGICAL FEAT. A remarkable operation has been .performed in a hospital at Prague by Dr. Iorak on a girl of sixteen named Marie Hubacek. She was suffering from a diseased bone in her right arm, and was sent to Prague to have the arm ai~lputated. Dr. Horak, however, decided to replace the diseased part: of the bone by a corresponding part taken from a dead person immediate ly..after death. For his purpose he utilised a girl who died in hospital from a bullet wound in the temple. The dead girl's right arm was ampu tated and part of it used to replace the diseased portion which had been removed from the girl Hubacek's arm. The operation was so successful that now HIubacek uses her right, arm as well as before her illness. A good husband makes a good wife. Beauty and sadnless always go to gether. Nature thought beauty too rich to go forth uponl the earth with out a meet a'loy.

Bags, given a good pitch, would carry off the bulk of the water, but would pro. bably let a fine spray through. To give a goad pitch rafters should be two-thirds of the width of the building. For instance, a building 12 feet wide should have rafters S feet long. Rafters for bags would need to be fairly close together (3 x 11 inch stuff would do well), and if each strip of bagging was Lacked along lis edges on the rafters, and a strip of wood or batten after wards nailed along on top of the rafter, a good job should be made of the putting on. No battens should be put on horizantally under the bagging, or any water passing through, instead of coming dawn on the under side of the roof, would be checked and cause a grip.
