Orinoco. The players are all in the  best of health, and thc trip has heen  most enjoyable and pleasant.  Hayes expressed the] opinion '.hat  lhe best feature of the tour was the  wonderful fielding, of the team." The  catching had been simply extraordinary, quite 75 per cent, of the possible chances having, heen held.  Altogether, Lord ' Brackley's team  played  twenty matches,  won eleven,  dlew. six,  and lost  three.    Both  lhe  lest matches     were won by the visitors, who on the first occasion  were  successful   wilh an  innings   to spaie.  In the second game the finish was a  of a most exciting  description,    'he  interest bfeing fully maintained: to thc  end, when tlic     English .side won  hy  ihe narrow margin of four runs.

Really excellent  displays  were   given   in   Barbados,   Jamaica and  Trinidad.  The best cricket  i.s said  to     nave  been ,seen-in'Barbados.   The West Indies'generally admitted  that    their  cricket had greatly improved of late  years, and had received  an-impetus  Thc    biggest score  made by Lord  Brackley's team     was  48-1 for eight  wickets,     while    the   largest  score  against them was 295 by All Barbados in the match at St. Lucia..  Captain Wynyard came out at lhe  top with an average of 903 runs and  an average of -11, while second nlace  was taken by Hayes with an average of 38,.his aggregate being 92(5.

JAS.  A.  SMART.  Deputy Minister of  tho Interior.  Department of the Interior, w  'miaiAir  Leads Them    All  IN QUALITY-  -:o:  R. P.RITHET,  voice thc sound attracts all thc male  birds within hearing. They all at  once commence to "cuckoo" loudly,  and to make their way to the tree  on which the lady is sitting. This is  usually in the evening, when thc  males may be heard in thc tree*, fighting liercely among themselves.  The hen cuckoo lays an egg in due  course, which,   she proceeds to carry  I in her bill,   with thc object of plac"--  I ing it in the   nest which she selects.  In this nest   it is deposited, and ultimately   hatched .and reared by  the  unconscious   foster-parents.   There is  a 'prevalent'idea \hat the cuckoo eats  the eggs of other birds.   This doubtless   au'ses     from the fact  that the'  bird has   been seen carrying her own  egg  in her beak.   About one hundred  !and twenty different species  of birds  have been recorded as those in whose,  nests cuckoos     have-deposited   their  eggs.   These    birds vary in size from  the wren to the   j wood-pigeon.   The]  most     common    victims selected  to  hatch and rear the young cuckoo are  the pied     wagtail, the reed warbler,  and the meadow-pipit.  The cuckoo lays one of the smallest  eggs for its si7.o of any bird. Perhaps  the most extraordinary fact in connection with this wonderful bird is  that it places its eggs in the nest of  a bird the eggs of which mos_t resem-  L-le its own in color. The belief entertained by some ornithologists is  that each female cuckoo lays a particular type of egg throughot its life,  that she lays about- twenty eggs,during a season, and that she is parasitic on a special .species of bird, always placing her egg in thc nest of  that species. For instance, a cuckoo  which has been reared hy a meadow-  pipit is probably the off-spring of. a  female cuckoo that has been reared  by a meadow-pipit, and hereditary instinct .will compel that female al-  .ways to seek out and deposit her egg  in a meadow-pipit's nest. Great diversity of color in the cuckoo's egg  is a prominent characteristic.  Another . wonderful feature in thc  career of the cuckoo is the instinctive propensity of the newly hatched  young one to turn nut of thc nest the  nestlings of the righiful occupants  This has born .-.eon and worded by  various observers   who have watched  OLD HSCKORY  FURNITURE  Is  -lust Perfection ior Your  LAWN OR VERANDAH  It is just finished naturally-wilh the bark on���������not roughly���������com  fort has been carefully considered.

Mr.  Balfour, in reply,  read a   state-'  ment   -iiipplkd   to   thc   British    Government   by   the   French   Ambassadoi  M.  Cambon,  as follows:  "As soon as .the French government  was aware    of     Admiral  Rojcstvensky \s s'i'jadron's   presence     at Kam-  r.inh   Ray,   lepresentativcs   were  sent  to SI.

The Russian  squadron subsequently  was reported  to be at Hongohe Bay,  a  few  miles north  of   Kamranh  Bay.  Admiral   Dc>on<_>uiercs,      commanding  the  French station  was sent     there  to report.     Me. found  Admiral      Rojestvensky's   sqtuadron   there,   though  not inside French  territorial  waters.  Thereupon   the   Governor   of     French  Indo.China,     who   had   received     instruct inns   to  sec   that  French     neutrality   was  duly  respected, sent  the  French  resident  to   1-tba  Trang,    thc  nearest  point  io  the  place,  with  directions to ask  the Russian Admiral  to  lea* e.
