Tho crowd which assembled on the Common on Wtdreaday and Thursday for the coming of Salmet formed a curious study iu psychology. It has been said that it is not easy to raise the interest of the Southampton crowd, hut there was no sign of apathy on Wednesday. The ' people came out to see the tust aeroplane to .descend within the borough boundary, ami rain and a wind, in whicii no heavier than air machine cc-uld live, did not deter them. Gome of tins people came for thrills, and they w«n\ disappointed, gaining only chills instead; otliora came -because there was a crowd, which is the surest magnet: many because it wya early closing day and it was somowliere to go. Tito wise dirmf the driest pliws and waited; lh»» foolish sit upon the sodden turf and regretted it afterwards. All discussed the coming marvel out of their ignorance. An animated group of Frenchmen diacuwed the crowd—moivifully in their wm tongue—while a pantomimic youth tried to sell them pert raits figures. except the number of wet-weather cyclists, for they were rwiwxled on a day when the M-revis seemed surprisingly empty. Half an hour later a second obecrvaticn, also extending o\er ten minutes, was taken, and the ratio was singularly close, thus—twelve tram-cars, seven motois, eighteen cycles, and twenty-four vehicles of other descriptions. Thy figure* given above represent 360 vehicles jui hour/ which is a pretty high average, acting that it was a bad morning. The busiest period of tlie week, by the way, iu Above liar, at all events, is Friday afternoon, when there is securely a bi'.ak in the chain of traffic. .

The first foreigners who went altout selling ouiona wore the Portuguese, hut now they are all Frenchman, mostly natives of Brittany, where the hulk of the onion* are grown and aliipped. Ixist year the crop was practically a failure, luit from converaUon with one of the men it would appear that there are plenty of onions in France this season. Ikubtlcsa loss and lore will be seen «>f these picturesque figures in the future, as tlie highly-organised shopkeeping of tho fffe-
