e'at the T.S. Mercury, tho .subject of our rated article thia week, is full of contracts. Discipline and rule form the keynote of the life there, :uu net whilst an official in-spoction waa proceeding the other day—a groat occoaion at the Mercury—a couple of. pet dogs followed the inspecting officer up and down the lima, while a hen and her chicks hunted for tit-bits among the boys' rifle* on the ground.

Tha Libit of doing things at the is characteristic of the Mercury, though it makes the visitor shudder to see the boya running barefooted upon a cinder-track. Tliey run everywhere, apparently, for one heard an Inspector say in a tone of blank surprise, " Why isn't that boy doubling?" The boy in question dulv "doubled " with his boots under his arm.

The sail "down the water" from Southampton has" again become popular, and deservedly so. Tito great panorama of the world's moat magnificent shipping, tho exquisite vista terminating in tho Isle of Wight, the dancing water cf the Solent, and the watch-dogs in Spitheod are the details of a seascape of laauty and interest to be found nowhere else on earth. When tho steamer has thrown off her "half-speed" trammel, she begins to find her pace just where the panorama opens to the accompaniment of whiffs of exhilarating brine. Tho blue sky, tho sparkling water, tho beautiful foam of bow and paddle-wing, and tlie sense of rhythmic motion are all elements—often un-reocgnised—in tho general sense of enjoyment.
granted that the number of rescue* will increase. There-is something strangely apt in the fact that Mr. Marconi, who may surely be dubbed "the champion life-saver," should have taken a he use within a stone's throw of South amptou, and when," the gn*t pageant of shipping passes by his window.
The adventures of two Southampton ladies 0 other day seems to call for tho adoption of iue measure to prevent a recurrence, not only r Uie sake of the Wins themselves, but for o sec.uded peace of others. Not a hundred, ilea from the town these ladies were walking a neighbourhood which they vaguely knew d a cjrtain largo institution. They cam* to m* imposing looking gates, which in their cx t were an invitation to enter, nd wandered round some very charming grounds and a large and handsome building, and even the presence of a "buttons" at the porch did not suggest to them that they were other than in tho grounds of the institution they had beanl of. It wma only when the "buttons" aforesaid followed them mund like a policeman o*tmtalict*ly keeping homebody under observation ti»at it dawned upon them that they wore wandering round a private bouse. Tbe-frowning visage of the psge boy was enough to make them beat a haaty retreat, if nothing else, and they are inclined to blame anybody but themselves for their awkward predicament.

In these days few will quibble with anything thai promotes rest, therefore an argument against rest is something of a sensation. "Monday morning disease," we are told by a veterinary surgeon, is bad for-the horse, and this is being used as a point against rest generally. Many eminent men have taught mankind how to utilise every moment of the day to the beat advantage, but if the horse doesn't kick against seven workdays a week the human will, and will doubtleas be quite willing to risk "Monday morning disease" so long as the Sabbath remains the precious interlude that it is. Of course, we are not alluding to that slack feeling which is sometimes known as "Monday morning disease." This should be strangled as a h'ydra-headod monster.
