But amid all its oddtties we ncxw'-'ari'd then iiid" iof the useful and magnificent. Among tlium is the Eucalyptus, a remaikablo tree, which attains the height of live him- died feet, thus reaching dimensions which enable it literally to throw into the shade the fai-famed gigantic trsee of California. But as if to vindicate its native Australian light -to !io-popular, it combines what has never beioie bean known to unite 111 a rapidity of growth and groat compactness of 1J- bre, which give it a great economical value-for mechanical purposes, and rnake-it valuable as a means of rcstoiing the foiest giowth in those legions which have been denuded of it. It has another pecuhaiity, which makes" it still moie available for the latter purpose, which is its adaptation to the ai id and water- less poitious of the globe m warm cli- mates. A tree planted in Algiers fifteen years ago, has attaint-el the volume and the qualities of an oak a hundred years old, and fiom a tree planted tlnee yeais ago, has sprung a tree now four feet in cir- cumference at the base. It is now.bolng introduced in Italy upon the bare sum- mits and mountain lidges, and as its leaves exhale a delightful fragrance and exercise a powerful auti-nnasmatio in- fluence, perhaps it may counteract and drive back the deadly blight which hat, for centuries been cieeping up from the PontinV marches' upon the "Eteinal and has made a desert of busy Roman life and the site of gorgeous palatial villas. must omit to add that the bark of this remarkable tree is very hard aild very rich hi tanning.

L THE LION 'AT the dark there is no animal invisible as a lion. Almost every hunter similar the lion's approach nt night, of the terror displayed by dogs and cat- tle as ho drew near, and of the ntter in- ability to see him, though he was so close that they could hear hiu breathing. Sometimes, when he has crept near an encampment or close to a catdlo Incio- sure, ho docs not proceed any further, lent he should venture within tht ra- dius illumined by the of fire. So ho crouches closely to the ground, and in the semi darkness looks so like a large stone, or a little hillock, that any one might pass close to it without per- ceiving its real nature. This gives the opportunity for vt.hiclithe lion has watching, and m a moment he strikes down the'careless straggler, and ca fries off his prey to the den.

She can take a after dinner, when her husband goes to work. She can go into the street without being asked to "stand treat" at every saloon. She can stay at home in time of war, and get married again if her husband ia killed. She can wear corsets if too thick, and and other fixings if too thin. She can get divorced from her husband when- ever she sees one sho likes bettor. She can get her husband in debt all over, until oe warns the public not to trust her on his account. But all those ad- vantages aio balanced by the great fact that Bho can't bass, go sparkling, or climb a tree with any degree of propriety. ._______________ TXnoETa AND haa been 'found, while firing at the run- _nirig-mari target ac Wimbledon, which is scarlet on one side and grey on the that the dazzles the eye, a'ud is hence tlie 'most difficult to hit from louving a red streak behind it, hi, ite advance, which unsettles the aim.
