A few came late, and two oi thj.ee  guests fiom outside the city came ui  with mends.  The occasion of the gathering was'  to spend an evening w.tii Mr. Thomas  Kuldie, lor the past four*years, and  ui tact uoin the laying of the ibuiida-  tion of ihe T.yee Smelter, its designer  and constuicter and since its ejection as M.inagei, and one of Lady-  smith's' most progre^sae and loyal  citizens, who, much to the regret of  Ladysmith has seveied Ins connection  with the Company and has assumed  flic management of the big works at  C i of ton.  Mayor'Coburn presided-and was  in  a most genial     mood., Toasts  wclc  given  and responded     to most generously.   Songs   were  mteispcised  with  speeches, and "A Jolly Good Fellow"  was   much in     evidence.   After     the  guests    had * done ample -justice to  Mine  Uost's~,exceiicnt "supper "and the  health of the     King had been drunk,  cigais were     lighted and *Mr. Forcim-  mrr was invited to announce the fust  to.ist,  'The City of Ladysmith,".

Robert Allan proposed  a toast  to  The      Industries of Ladysmith,  and  called on Messers.  Cohurn, Freei and  others.     The Mayor responded first.  He said in brief, that while the city  had  much to  do to be in such a condition as we should like,  the outlook  was "bright.   He could speak personally of the shingle and lumber     industries.  He believed the  fact that  his firm had  today been obliged to  turn .down an order for ten ears of  shingles for Indiana, as the company  were deluged   with  orders^  this  dis-  pitc the fact that there was a heavy  duty     on shingles     shipped into the  States;        Spoke    plainly       for the  shingle  industry.

The report presented by A   Ilosio.  tho   British  consul-gcneial   ah  Lhen-  ehi       on his journey to  the eastern  frontier of Thibet, is full of inform*  tion  concerning the  customs  of  tlie  inhabitants.  31 r. Ilosie found much traffic on  the road. Wheelbarrows laden with  passengers, many of whom were asleep were trundled along, and huge  ba-s of rice and black pigs were bc-  in.r siniilaily conveyed, the latter  joining the squeals to the creaking  of the wheels.  Mr.  Hosic passed  through   a coun-  ' try-magnificent  for   the fertility ,of  its soifaw' thc tireless industry-of  its population.   There was, however,  an incredible lack  of comfort.   In     a  small     room  with a soft mud  floor  there     was neither table nor chair;  onlv a settle and a bare wooden ������>ed-  stcacl, .that would not ,havc heen tolerated in tin English prison1. A painless wooden grating  did duty- for    ;  window,   and yet on  a board  underneath  it was  written  in red  ink  the  character     "T'ien,"  meaning  "Ilea-  ben!" .  One of his uedr-oonis contained  parts of -two jbeautilul colTins, intended for the landloid and his -.wife. At  Ilo-K'-ou the chief's wife was highly decorative, as she wore a silver  plate as big as a bread'plate on the  'top of her head, and another at tlie  back, in addition to long .earrings of  silver  inlaid  with coral.

One need no!   envy the Lapiandcis,  who      mix    a certain Kind   of earth  with,their bread, or the Russian Peasant,  who  uses  "rock-flour."  It is sheer famine which drives the  poorer  classes  in   Hungary  sometimes  to    eat  an car Ui  which  contains  only a trilling propoition of nourishing  principles.  But,  as  the writer in  the  Lancet  remarks,   it   is astonishing   to      find  what a number oi seaweeds arc really  edible and  nourishing.  Tho  best  Known  instance  in    this  emmfry is   lai'cr,   which  is  a sort   ol  stew    made  from  seaweed  gathered  on   the Devonshire coast.  :     There are also  several  kinds       of  scamosscs cclccmcd for their esculent  properties,    and      from  agar-agar a  very palatable jelly is obtained.  No  reptiles  appear on  our bill    of  fare except  the  turtle.

Tinker   in  this  game  sent   a long  ily  to drop right where Lumley    apparently     caught,   but   then  bumped  against    a pole,      dropping the ball.  Klein at hrst declared the batter out  and  then  ruled  that he was safe.  Ebbetts protested the game - for  Brooklyn on the ground that Lumley held the ball momentarily as  prescribed by the rules.
