Leth-bridge wishing to know whence the name w^s derived. Mr. Buchanan! passed Mr.. Lethbridge's lietter ou tcf Dr. C. F. P. Conybeare; K.C., who replied as follows: Dear Mr. Buchanam I have your letter from Alan B. Leth-bridge. It known as Sixth AveSTie, in Devonshire., I think the name of this place where Courtland was situatfefl , was Lympton. but of this, I am not ceirtain. However. I can easily obtain the information if yon \\-i3h it, as T took out probate of his estate, but it would be up in Jlacleod. ~ '� \ la 1SS5 W. E. Lethbridge was the President at Viee-Ptesident ot the North "tTestern Coal and Navigation Company. It was in that year; that Letlfbridge was founded, wheii, the Narrow gage was built from Duniuore to tKis point. He was, I believe, associated in the business of- "V\i H. Smith and Company, the welf kn.Q>yn Book sellers. He is the same Smith trotn .whom oar Smith Street took its name. He was First Lord of -the Admiralty, and I believe afterwards became a Peer. At'KIl events hia, wife at that time had been made a /'Vis-' countess as Smith wished to remain in the-House of Commons. - ' I return llr. Lethbvidge's letter. Yours ^n^ly, C. F. P. qONYBEARE.

The residue ("cakey) is an excellent fodder for cattle. Nothing fattens chickens so rapidly as sunflower seeds, because of their richness in oil. The plant-"stalks, dried in stacks,- yield a ton of flrst-elass fuel to the acre;
