We have erred in that dark hour  We have known;  When the tears fell with the shower  All alone,  Were not shine and shower blent  As the gracious Master meant?  Let us temper our content  With His owd.  For wo know, not every morrow  Cm bo sad;  So, forgetting all the sorrow  We have had.  Let iis fold away our fears,  And put by our foolish tear?,  And through all the coming years,  Just be glad.  ���������James Whitcomb Riley.  HE BOILED IT DOWN.

The most commonplace 'country rock' is sometime^  rich in .gold, says the American  Mining Review. No ono outside  of the district about Gold Road,  Arizona, would consider tho semi-  translucent quartz of tho Gold  Road mine as 'favorable' rock for  gold. It looks liko horns tone of  dirty, yellowish-gray color, so fine  in texture as to show no grain and  it does not yield guld in tho horn  or pan, imfact it is tho most unpromising-looking stuff, yet it is  rich in gold. The rottoti grauite  of the Yellow-Aster miuo, at Raus-  burg, certainly doos not look well,  but it bus produced $5,000,000 iu  gold. A bed of sandstone iu Calico  district. Cal., which looked as (ho  it were llyi-pecktd, contained 300  ounces per ton. Much of the sil-  icilied dacit at Goldlield, Nevada,  that is worthless is ldcuticle with  somo that is rich. Tho dark, groeu  granular horulilond schist of the  lloinestsiko mine would not itupro6ti  a miner favorably. Qiiartzite id  gold bearing; so is limefatone.

Anne  blushed deep with ombarassment under Neal's sharp gaze. "Don't look at  me like that. Neal Rurton." she added  sharply. "Nathan Fuller Is a fine fellow, and he saved my life! I might  have drowned if he had not happened  along the river when my boat upset.  You may laugh at him for a countryman, but I would like to see you do a  deed like that!"  "It Is not my luck to have the opportunity," returned Neal. his face  curiously white. "I understand what  you mean. A tine.

Another,  " They Always Bring Results."  "I wish to let you know ot a couple of  recent cures which I have made by the uso  ol the Cuticura Remedies.   Last August, Mr.   of this city came to my office, troubled  with a severe skin eruption. At first I could  not understand the nature of the case. I  finally traced tt to his occupation, as he was a  painter and decorator. It was dermatitis In  Its worst form. It started with a slight eruption and would affect most parts of his body���������  thighs, elbows chest, back and abdomen ���������  and would terminate in little pustules. The  Itching and burning was dreadful and he  would almost tear his skin apart, trying to  get relief. I recommended all the various  treatments I could think of and lie spent  about fifteen dollars on prescriptions but  nothing seemed to help him.  "In the meantime my wife who was continually suffering with a slight skin trotiblo  lally  wni  'K?  iiTi  and who had becn trying different prescriptions and methods with my assistance, told  me she was going to pet some of the Cuticura  Ilerncdle-i. But as I did not know much about  Cuticura ut that time I was doubtful whether  It would help her. Her skin would thicken,  break and bleed, especially on the fingers,  wrists and arms. I could do nothing to relieve her permanently. When she first applied the warm baths of Cuticura Soup and  applications of Cuticura Ointment she saw  a decided Improvement and In a few days  she was completely cured. -  "I lost no time In recommending the Cuticura Hemedics to Mr.  , and this was  two months ago. I told him to..wash with  warm baths of tho Cuticura Soap and to  apply, tjie Cuticura Ointment generously.  Believe me, from thc very first day s use of tho  Cuticura Kemedles he was greatly relieved  and to-day he is completely cured through  their use. I have great faith in the Cuticura  Hemedics and shall always have a good woid  lor them now that I am convinced of their  wonderful merlin." (Signed) li. h.

Iler blue eyes  ���������were fixed on the shining river which  they were approaching.  Suddenly nurton tore tbe red lined  parasol from her light grasp and  clutched her arm. '  "Run. Anne! Run for the willow  trees and climb! It's a bull! I'll keep  him off! nun. I tell you!" He pushed  her toward the river, but she turned  and clung to him with a little cry or  alarm.  With a despairing gesture he tossed  Khe red lined parasol toward the approaching beast and saw it whirl  along, its crimson silk full in the face  of the animal. Then he grasped  AnDe's arm and raced with her across  the intervening space toward tho willows.  flehfnd them tbe bull wns trampling  the tantalizing sunshade into twisted  fragments. Elis angry bellow announced that their flight had been discovered, and. with amazing celerity in so  clumsy a beast, he had turned and  was nfter them.  Neal.fairly tossed Anne's slight form  up Into the low hanging branches,  where she clung desperately. That be  was able to reach her side and throw  his arm about her was due to his  trained muscles, backed by a cool  head. As he braced himself against  the inclined trunk, bis feet secure in  0. convenient crotch below, the bellowing animal struck the willow tree like  a whirlwind.  As they rocked dizzily with the  swaying tree Anne clung closely to  Burton's shoulder. Into which her face  was pressed. Neal smiled tenderly  down at her bright hair, while the bull  repeatedly charged the tree trunk with  most unsatisfactory results, 1'resently  he desisted from tbe attack, and his  angry bellow diminished to a low mutter, like distant thunder. It was quite  evident that he Intended to wait for  their descent from tbe tree. He toot  up bis positiou beneath tbe cool shade  and waited. |  Anne lifted a shamed face. "Has he  gone. Neal?" she asked meekly.  "No; he's down there waiting. Perhaps he'll get tired after awhile and,  go back to his pasture." !  "Can't you find a branch .for me to  sit on?" inquired Anne from her position, supported by Neal's willing arm.  "I'm afraid not. but you can take  this place���������there, stand so��������� leaning  against the trunk and brace your feet  here. Hold tight to this little branch,  on either side."  "Where are you going to stay?";  asked Amm uneasily. "I've driven you.  from the only safe position, only���������you.  see���������I couldn't"��������� She paused help-;  lessly. * I  "Of course you couldn't," returned!  Neal easily. "1 shall take a lower*  stand���������no danger���������he enn't touch me.r  Somebody'll be nfter him presently. It's  growing late. Too bad we missed our  row on Ihe river."  A half hour passed in silence. Anno  leaned wearily against the tree trunk,  her eyes fixed on Ihe river below. Neal,  most uncomfortably astride of a slender brnuch that bent dangerously under his weight, sincerely wished that  it would not be Nathan Fuller who  came to their rescue. That bucolic  youth's contempt:for'"city.fellers" rankled In the bosom of one who had been  nt the front In college uthletlcs, who  had spent a vacation on a. Wyoming  rnnch and learned to ride a bucking  broncho.  "I suppose we couldn't make anyone  hear even if we called ever so loud."  juggesled Anne dubiously. "If���������If Mr.  I-'uller were only around be might  know what to do." She voiced tlie  thought half consciously and flushed ut  Neal's snort'bf contempt  "Mr. Fuller, even though be bus genera I Inns of slock raising ancestors lie-  lilud him. ennnot change a maddened  bull into a lamb and lend him away  by 11 blue ribbon. Unless the animal's  ��������� Mention Is attracted elsewhere or he  is captured by strategy I don't see how  I'lther nr us can get away." Neal  fin used nnd seemed to debate some  ���������ilies:Ion within himself. He looked j  ��������� lown al 1 In- bull.  "Whut were you going to say?"  'im'.s'iorii'd A niie.  ".Merely that 1 might drop down on  'he bciist's back nnd thus get him  liwny from your vicinity���������that might  give you a 11 opportunity to seek assistance from. Mr. Fuller���������and nt the  -tatut* time relleveyou of my companionship." Neal's voice was bitter as  he voiced this sentiment.  "Vou couldn't do that-you might he  killed.'' protested Anne, Ignoring his  sarcasm.  Al -that Instant something happened.  Tbe bull lifted an ugly black head,  rolled 11 malicious red eye and hungrily nipped nt the drooping willow  branch where Neal Hat. The flexible  .limb dipped down. down, and suddenly Neal lost his grip of small I wigs  and slid quickly down the slippery  branch, html lug squarely astride of  the niilmiirs broad back.  In.Htinctlvely his hands grasped the  smooth little horns before the frightened beast dropped his head nnd swung  uronnd. Ah Ihe willow brunch whipped upward Neul heard Anne's desperately frightened cry:  "Neul:   Neal!   Neal!"   Then lie was  away on his mad ride. They'mounted  a rise of grouud. and she closed her  eyes nnd prayed.  When she opened them ngnln she  dlil not look at the field. She turned  her gaze dowu to the river, where a  boat tloated close under the willows.  In the boat were Nathan Fuller and a  very pretty girl. The girl was speaking, half sobbing, then Nathan's  voice In reply: "I can't help It. Lucy.  She as good as asked me to take her  tonight. It's just city folks' ways.  You know I din't care about any ono  but you!"  "If you take that girl tonight I  shan't speak to you again!" flashed  Lucy tearfully. "She wants to niarry  you.   I know she does!"  Anne's face was scarlet with mortification. Her silly gratitude toward  Nathan Fuller because he had saved  her life had nearly turned Lucy's romance into a tragedy. Anne leaned  forward and spoke:  "Mr. Fuller!" When they had turned  startled faces upward she told her  story, and as Nathan hastened ashore  in quest of Neal she added to the girl  who stared at her resentfully: - "You  see, I am engaged to Mr. Burton. I  am doubly anxious for his welfare."  Lucy smiled understandingly and  helped Anne down from her perch In  the tree just as Nathan returned with  Neal, who limped slightly.  Declining Nathan's offer to row them  home, they stood by the river's brink  until tho two in the boat bad disappeared around the bend. Then Neal  turned to Anne, standing with downcast eyes and nervously plucking  hands.  "Anne," he said quietly, "I shall  never again ask you to marry me."  "I don't blame you���������I'm such an arrant coward, nnd there's really nothing likable about me," admitted Anne  shakily. "You must let me tell you���������I  think you were very brave to do what  you did.    It was splendid."  "It was an accident It was pure  good luck," returned Neal calmly,  then insistently. "I shall never-again  ask you to marry me, Anne, because  Nathan has just told me he heard yon.  announce our engagement to Miss'  Lucy."  Anne was crying now softly. '  "Do yon love me, darling?" _ asked  Neal, bis arms around her.  Anne's rosy face pressed closa to' tafa>  own was sufficient -answer.  London  Dispatch  Writer   Liked   the  Canadian  Boys.  Part of this week my lot has fallen  ���������in pleasant places, says a writer in  The London Weekly Dispatch. I have  been living with the Queen's Own  Rifles of Canada. Tliey are a very  fine" body of men. They might, in  fact, be our Queen's Westminsters  with an American accent. The accent  is all they have got which associates  them with the United States. I have  never imagined that it was possible  to hate a Yankee as much as these  fellow-subjects of ours do. To suggest annexation to tho States is to  run the chance of "bayonet, get it in  your innards," 'as Drummer Lew  said to the Afghan. The regiment is  one with traditions dating back over  fifty years. As it is a rifle regiment,  it carries no flag, otherwise it would  have ��������� at least four honors upon the  colors.  Colonel Sir Henry Pellatt is a fine  man, who is devoted to his regiment,  where he served for years in the  ranks. He told me that he does not  wish people to think he is an overwhelmingly rich man.

The following incident occurred recently at one of those ports on the St.  Lawrence River which are close to  the American frontier. A United  States citizen had landed and wai  "trolling about the streets, very evidently in a truculent mood. He encountered a 'Canadian custom.0 officer  in uniform and asked who owned a  yacht whicli was at anchor in the  river. "Oh, that yacht belongs to  the Hon. Mr. So-and-so," said the officer, naming a prominent Canadian  politician.  "Yah, I thought so," said the American, "some millionaire or political  thief, I suppose."  The customs officer has the reputation of being a peaceable man, but  the manner of the visitor -ruffled him.  Grasping him by the shoulder, he  said: "Look here, my man, Canadian  political representatives are not to be  spoken of in that way in my presence." He gave him a shake and let  him go. The American, looking for  vengeance, sought out the customs official's superior officer and made a  complaint, which was politely taken  down.  "What will they'likely do to him?"  he enquired after all the facts were in  writing.  "Oh, I don't know," said His Majesty's representative. "Probably  they'll raise his salary."  "Well, this is a hell of a country,"  said the American as he took his departure.  N.C.O.s.  They hiive a strong element of the  Scot in them. One of the most interesting 11,011 I luive met f'H 11 long  time is old Sergeant Eilintrswrirth.  who is spending: the week-end amid  the scenes of his youth nt Edinburgh  and Glasgow, when he wns 11 guy  young soldier of the famous 0-lid. He  has been out of ihe army for forty-  seven years, but ever since emi"rnting  to Canada he has been with the  Queen's Own, and thev nre proud to  have the sturdy, self-reliant old man  with them. He still has fire, and  takes pride in Canada and Great  Britain, and above all in hi.-s soldiering. We gossipped a day or two ago  in his tent, 11 few of us, on his career.  He had not only -soldi-red in tha  Crimea and in India, but he is one  of the few men who remain who have  journeyed from Paris to Marseilles by  road in a carriage in the days when  there was no other way of doing it.  He was traveling with one of his  officers.  Now he made one of. the famous  "thin red line" which on a certain  occasion did the impossible in the  Crimea. Ho has the bar on .his  medal for Sebustnpnl. He went to  India, and his medal bears "Relief  of Lucknow"and "Lucknow." Yet  of actual fighting it is difficult to get  him to talk. He will insist that the  93rd were the first at the relief of  Lucknow, but as for feelings, fancies,  mental attitudes in general .you will  learn nothing. A young Canadian  ventured the question: "Sergeant,  were you ever aware that you killed  a man?" "Weel, li.ddie," said the  old warrior, "I was never consciuiis  that I killed anybody in the Crimea,  but I wish I had a pound for every  one I stickit in India. We didna'  care. We just drove the bayonet in  them. I dinna think you can under-  stan' what Cawnpore meant to us.  That was a terrible time."

Alexander MacLachlan was a Cana  dian poet, whose writings weie attracting much admiration fifty years  igo. He was born in Scotland in  1820, nnd though without any advan  tages of rank and fortune, and apprea-  ticed to a tailor, he-,was a voracioin  reader, and soon familiarized himself  with the woiks of the principal British authors. Several of his poems up  peared in volumes published by him  in 1856 and following years. He contributed very materially to thc establishment of a national literature iu  Canada. His chief aim as a poet was  to be considered the exponent of tSe  views of the working classes of the  country. In this effort, it has been  claimed that he stands shoulder to  shoulder with such men as Burns an I  Miller, while a proof of the excellence  and popularity of his verse is to be  found in the fact that he ws*s the  winner of the prize offered by Tho  Glasgow Workman for a national  song for the Scot.  WHEN HEALTH  IS RUN DOWN  A Tonic Such as Dr. Williams'   PinK   Pills   is  Promptly Needed.  When the health is run down from  any cause whatever, a tonic is needed. A feeling of weakness, poor appetite, loss of breath after slight  exertion, indicates that a complete  breakdown is near. Sometimes  these troubles are due to overwork  or worry, or again they may be due  to the after effects of fever or some  wasting illness. But whatever the  cause the trouble should not be neglected, and for the purpose of gaining new health and new strength  there is absolutely no better medicine than Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,  which fill tho veins with new, rich1  blood, .which tones and strengthens  every nerve and eveiy organ in the  body. Mrs. Roue A. Smith, Roblin,  Man., says: "Some years ago I had  a severe attack of typhoid fever.  When I recovered sufficient'y to be  able to git about I found that I was  not able, to gather up my strength.  I tried tonic wines and other medicines, but without avail. For months  I could hardly go up stairs, and if I  took a walk I was always obliged  to take a friend with mc to help me  home again. A doctor had again  been called in, but- he said I would  grow out of it in time, and gave me  more medicine, but instead of gaining I kept getting worse, and was at  last obliged to take to my bed. One  day while lying reading I chanced to  come across a cure made by Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills, and this decided me to try them. Before I had  taken the pills lo:'g I began to feel  a decided improvement and my  friends also said I was beginning to  look like my old self again. From  this on the improvement was steady,  but 1 continued to take the Pills for  a couple months, when I felt that the  cure was complete. Several years  have passed since then and as I have  remained iu the best of health I am  warranted in saying that the cure is  permanent, and I freely give this  statement for the benefit it may bring  to others."  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are sold  by nil medicine dealers or may be  had by mail at 50 cents a box or  six boxes for $2.50 from The Dr.  Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville,  Ont.

Are ��������� the people of Canada going  headlong to the nut farm? That is  the question that is -suggested by a  mournful contemplation������of the peanut statistics for 1909 and 1908. Last  year Canadians ate 1,325,217 pounds  of peanuts, valued at $71,333, and on  which $36,198.35 duty was paid; the  year before they vanquished 1,047,-  729 pounds, valued at $61,024. and on  which $28,785.61 duty was paid.  There is little danger that the  crunching of peanuts will fill the  land with unmusical sounds, when  it is figured that the average consumption is about one-fifth of a  pound per head of the. population.  That ia each Canadian eats one five-  cent bag of peanuts per annum.  Cyclists' Paradise.

Owing to the extensive brine pumping that go'cH on  in the neighborhood there had been  a serious subsidence of tho earth, and  several houses had been more or less  dismantled. A honoymoon couple returning home were much relieved to.  find that their little house, though  close to the scene of thc accident,  had not a*pparently suffered from,the  subsidence. Hardly, however, had  they'entered its doois than an ominous creaking was heard, and their  happy home-coming ended in a hur-  lied flight. It was only after hours of  hard work by -willing helpers that  their belongings were rescued from the  ruined home.  An extraordinary occurrence was  not long ago reported in a Yorkshire  village. A young girl, a great favorite  with all the villagers, had recently"  been married, and the rumor had got  about that she had been ill-used by  her husband while they were on their  honeymoon. On their return the en  tiie village turned out lo meet them  at thc station, and in view of the ter-  rilied wife proceeded to duck the  -young man in the neaiest pond���������a  lesson .which it is to be hoped he profited by.  A somewhat similar case occurred  near Manchester recently. A young  lady had aroused the ire of her friends  by jilting her lover, a struggling youn^  clerk, and accepting the attentions of  a well-to-do tradesman. On the wedding morning the bride was attacked  by.a scoie of excited female, who tore  her veil off and pelted her with mud.  The young counle, however, were not  deficient in courage, and-faced the  music as best they could. On theii  leturri from the honeymoon thoy underwent a similur o-deal, and foi  weeks after they were almost prisoners iu their new house until the ex  oitement had woin it-uslf out. The  discarded lover, be it said to his credit, took no part whatever in the pro  ceedings and" was among the first to  offer his sympatiiy.  Perhaps one of the most tragic  home-comings on record was recently  reported in one of the large manufacturing towns. A young couple, owing  to the late arrival of their train, engaged a "taxi" to finish their journey  home. It soon became apparent from  the erratic movements of the car that  something was wrong with the steering-gear, and to his horror the drivei  found himself unable to pull up. Madly the car dashed on until nearly op-  ���������x)site tno new home ol tne young  people, when it took a sudden turn  and swcivcd violently towards the  footpath. In another moment the garden wall had collapsed, and finally,  with a rending crash, the car came  to rest half-way through the front  room window. All the occupants were  thrown,out and seriously injured, and  at first'the life of the young wife was  despaired of. The full extent of the  tragedy, however, was not realized until the dead body of the bride's mother was found near the wrecked car.  She had evidently come to the house  to .bid them welcome, and had paid  for her kindness with her life.  The night was dark and black outside,  With a boisterous wind untamed,  Whil'st. I was sitting^-snug within,  Where my good log fire flamed.  And the clock ticked,  The cat puried,  And the kettle sung.  I read me a tale of love and war,  Of brave knights and ladies fair,  And I brewed me a brew of  Stiff Hot Scotch,  To drive away dull care.  And the clock ticked.  The cat purred,  And the kettle sung.  At last my candle spluttered out,  But my fire still gave light,  And I turned my tumbler upside down  And  bade myself good-night.  And the clock sung,  And the kettle purred,  And the cat ticked.

Zam-Buk   Gives   Cortain   Ease.  Friction on the veins (the horrhoid  veins) that are swollen, inflamed and  gorged with blood, is what causes the  tumble pam and stinging and smarting of piles. Zani-ituk applied at  night will be found to give ease before nioiniiig. Thousands of persons  nave proved this. Why not be guided  by the experience ol others? Mr.  1'nomas Pearson, of JPiince Albert,  faaak.j writes: "1 must thank you for  the benefit 1 have received from the  use oi Zam-Jiuk. Last summer I suffered greatly from piles. I started to  use Zam-Buk and found- it gave me  lelief, so 1 continued it and 'after using three or four boxes I am pleased  io say it has effected a complete  cure."  Mr. G. A. Dufresne, 183-185 St.  Joseph Street, St. Koch, Quebec, P.Q.,  writes: "I can highiy recommend  Zam-Buk to anyone who suffers from  piles."  Magistrate Sanford, of Weston,  King's Co., N.

S., says: "I  suffered terribiy from piles, the pain  at times was almost unbearable. I  tried various ointments, but every  thing I tried failed to do me the  slightest good. , I was tired of trying  various remedies, when I heard of  Zam-Buk, ancl thought as a last resource I would give this balm a trial.  I proem ed a supply .and commenced  with the treatment. After a very  short time Zam-Buk effjet d what  several other ointments and medicines  had failed to do���������a complete cure."

In  maps   ol   Australia   published  only a few years ago, may 'be, found  vast tract9 of territory described as  deserts.      Victoria    Desert,   in     the  southern  part of Western Australia,,  and the Great Sandy Desert, in the  north ol the province, are two of the  most notable of  these  titular  waste  i lands  Old maps of the continent that is  now a Commonwealth show "deserts"  almost' everywhere inland���������an easy  way of describing land which was almost unexplored. But that, of course,  is not the case with Western Australia. The Victoria Desert has been  traversed several times since 1875  when Giles made his great journey  across it from west to east. This  Great Sandy Desert has also been  crossed on several occasions. The  expeditions of Giles, Warburton, and  'Carnegie afforded no evidence that  this great wilderness was other than  a desert.  There is, however, at present visiting the Old Country a gentleman who  stoutly maintains that this is a libellous description.  He has spent seventeen years in  the "far back" country; he has done  much exploration'work, and for the  last four years he has been engaged  in important missions ,on behalf' of  the Government of the Colony. In  Sir George Reid's opinion, Mr. Canning (the gentleman referred to),* is  better acquainted with the northern  part3 of Australia than anybody he  has met, and this is a sufficient testimonial that Mr. Canning knows" what  he is talking about.  Two months ago, Mr. Canning successfully completed the enterprise  which the Government entrusted to  him of constructing a line of veils  from Wiluna, a little mining town, to  the .Kimberley country in. the north',  a distance of 800 miles. This scheme  was decided upon as * a result of a  journey made *in 1906-7. Tiie possibility of finding watir in the deserc  has long been discussed, and it was  his business to discover it. After  having spent twelve months on a journey of 1,000 miles, he was able to report that 'abuuda.it water was available.  "There is water almost everywhere  in this so-called desert," added Mr.  Canning; "not visible water, but very  near the surface. The average depth  of the wells we const! ucted, one every  fourteen miles, is only 35 feet, and  they all hold a fair store of water.  There is not one which would not  yield an ample suppy for two 'mobs'  of cattle ��������� a 'mob being anything  between 3C0 and 5C0 head. Some of  the wells give over 4,000 gallons an  hour. Each of them is timbered and  supplied with 42 feet of troughing.  "We brought back cattle with us  irom the Kimberl-ys to Wiluna without losing a single bullock, and they  were all in good killing condition.  "The result of this chain of wells  is to open up a new route to the finest  pastoral country in Australia.

Fie was witues-sin-; somo naval opeia-  tions from an armored cruiser, and  expressed a desire to the captain to be  allowed to handle the ship himself f<)r  ���������1 short time A ready assent was, of  course, at once forthcoming, and the  Prince of Wales���������as his present Majesty then was���������took temporary command. ,No sooner had he done so  than his ship began to lose her station rather badly, and the flagship at  ence signalled to know what was the  matter, and humorcusly added that if  it were desired a midshipman should  be lent to them to enable them to  keep their proper station. The prince  saw these signals and asked for them  to be read to him. When this was  .lone he laughed heartily, and at once  rrdeied the following reply to be sent:  "Please forgive mistakes; am rather  .-hort of practice.���������George."  An  Amazing  Memory.  Sir Albert de Rutzen, the London  magistrate, who presided over thc  Crippen case, has an amazing memory. On one occasion a prisoner,  thinking to get off with a light sentence, said that he had never appeared in the dock before. The magistrate, however, lefrcshcd hia memory with the remark that they had  met in similar circumstances many  years before. " 'E ain't a beak," muttered the discomfited one, amidst a  itorm of laughter from the court; " e's  n book." In spite of his advanced age  Sir Albert is still in fine physical  londition, thanks to his athletic disposition. He rowed for Cambridge as  long ngo as 1849; Lord Justice Chitty  being in the opposing Oxford crew  Then  the  Aide-dJ-Camp  Grinned.  Unconventional to a degree, the i  Countess of Glasgow, who is taking a |  well-earned rest after the trying illness of her son, once had a quaint experience which almost overcame even  'icr own ideas of simplicity. It happened soon after the earl was marlo  Governor of New Zealand, in succes-  non to Lord Onslow. An aide-de-camp  i\ns dispatched with a verbal invita-  lion to a newly-appointed Minister,  '.ho owed his position rather to natural abilities than to any adventitious advantages in the way of birth  and training. With a grin the aide-  de-camp cave her ladyship the Minis-  tei's reply: "Much obliged, but me  ind the mi3sus don't meal out."
