This  .rock  where it   isweathered  near  the  surface is called "yellow grourd,:' \.but  deeper down, where, fresh, it is-known  as  "blue ground."  Throughout thus the diamonds are  scattered; but they .vary vreatly in  abundance in the different pipes, while  they are entirely absent from some  where they would naturally be expected. Although the absence of ordinary volcanic elTect renders it. im-  ' pqssible to regard the pipes as tho  necks of former volcanoes of normal  type, this objection: does not apply to  the theory that, they were produced  by evpioslons of gas or steam, and  the latter agency would explain tilie  mudlike nature or the blue ground.

He was escorted  to  the dining-room  by a club  member made up as Cardinal Wolsey.    In  the dining hall       a  stage, had been evected. On  the stage  stood  George     Bromley,  the      high  priest,   who  conducted   Irving through  fa ridiculously  funny ritual.

In fairness to tne latter it should . e said  that file of them had been unable  to get out to practice for more than  a week, and some of them had not  been on the field for even a 'longer  time than that. However, although  they made but a poor exhibition at  the start off, as the ga e proceded  they pulled up remarkably and iu the  second half, especially towar.i tlie  latter end of tho"game, gave the Vic  toiia'men the run of their lives.

However, their rush ,was  fruitless, and a shot from the inside ^  right wan, Caught by Whyte and sent  behind. For some minutes before  the half time whistle sounded thetopll  scarcely ever left the neighborhood  of the visitor's goal and the home  men were showing skill in every way  eijual' to that of Victoria.  In this hall play was stopped twice  Thompson and Tyc teceiving oasty  kicks inthe lea; which .for a time disabled them.  The second half opened with Lady-  snuth playing up field, and both  teams worked hard. It was well  on to rhe middle of the half befoie  any fuilher,.,score was made, and then  Victoria added to their score. Adam  and Sanderson had made a grand  rush up the field, but Lorimer  had got*possession and sent the.^ ball-  down to Tye, who dribbled it down  to tho goal. *o,ni passed to Hart, who  sent it past Hailstones. 'With Victoria's three goals to nil it looked  rather black for the home men, but  nothing daunted, they "braced up in  o-ood style, and it was n this jiart of  the game that Eno's , magnificent  work was -seen. Ladysmith kept up  a pace that ./as obviously too rapid  for the visitors and they began to  show signs of fatigue. . Grahanie and'  Richards worked the leather up the  field, but, hard pressed.'.by Thompson  and Schvvengefs, sent it across to  Sanderson, who'made* a-pretty and  ���������successful    shot. This  Was  eight-  teen minutes before time-, and-eleven  minutes later the.home men again  scored..' this time the ball .coming  from Richards.1 It- was a salendtd  did rush up the field that the home  men made- Richards shot from the  right and Uhe ��������� shot was a very neat  one. a..  -  There were''one or . two very close  shaves .between this and time,'and  once or twice it looked as though  Ladysmith had the ball through.  The home men were certainly playing ��������� -or.'.'     ���������-^���������-ue   a|t tne lime ^,1.  though once or twice the visitors  brightened, tip and did some good  work. -    .  The game .'was a very clean one,  with the exception of the first few  minutes was full of interest. Ladysmith lost, but the beating -;.s;il*y  no means abaci one, and it cannot  with truth be said that their p'lav  was on the whole inferior to that of  the visitors.  Mr. F.

They have an unpleasant  way of stopping short at most inconvenient t mes and flatly refusing  to budge. Yesterday  two launches  "���������acted  the mule" on  the bay, to  the  great discomfort   of their occupants.  At nine o'clock yesterday morning  a party of smelter men set. off for  Crofton in Mr. McDonald's launch,  and- as the craft usually behaves itself web they did not think it necessary to take oars with which to pnll  ashore should the engine break down  They had just got nicely started and  { were heading for     Osborne Bay when  the engines decided to stop work", and  ,-';'=���������'���������(     - -.':������������������'���������      ���������������������������������������������������������������.���������-^������^i@ilfei_S������te  all efforts' of the engineer ao put matters right were futile, so the happy  party spent the morning drifting on  the bay in the cold wind.

The  otb^r      launch jjlehavied   rather  better  and did     not strike until the  journey      was np'arly completed.

P.'s  It need hardly be pointed out, ?ays  the author of ';Fifty Years in Fleet  Street,"  that to be elected a_rnem-  ber of parliament docs not necessar-  'ily   imply      intellectual   superiority.  Shortly after the Burmese war      a  young civilian, home on leave, happened  to mention  Burma.  "Ah,  yes,  Burma,"  said an  M.P  with whom he was sitting at table.  "I   had a nephew  who  was'in  Burma,  only he used to call it Bermuda."  On another occasion, in the ..month  of March, some one said to Mr. Live  sey:  "This is a cruel east  wind."  "Yes,"-'was the would-be witty reply.  "I expect it'will be Easter before it, is over."  This was repeated by the author  of the book quoted to a respected  member of parliament, who observed  gravely: "I fancy he's right. I have  known it to last till Easter and  longer yet.",  People     who  think    they     are the  whole  thing  generally  are unpopular.  ���������  ������_*_������  It will seem passing 1strange to the  politicians to have no railroad passes.  * * *  In the    school pf adversity the v-r-  succcssful     chiropodist   doesn't   oft.:    ^^  go to the foot. ^5   o     IN  PRAISE OF .CHAMBERLAIN'S  KING OF ALL  COUGH MEDICINE  There is     no other mediciao manufactured that     aas received so much ]  praise' and so     many expressions of-  gratitude    as      Chamberlain's   Cou-rh  Remedy.

has      few    outside    interests.    Evan

which lshe very often is, her ideas of
life. tend    to make her place      her
charitahie contributions in the hands
of a sister . superior of convents   or
directors    of charitable  institutions
and  works for use   in the cause she
has   at heart.
The Mexican women in  the middle
and   upper  classes  have  never    been

ever  been stout and  muscular,       for
much  work of a heavy kind has always been their lot.
In the Mexican schools the girl is
taught many ^things in  the way    of
needlework,    painting,     embroidery,
