THAT'S HOW BIRDS BUILD THEIR HOMES.
THEY can't help it, you see. They have no credit furnishing system in Bird-land. Nests are built twig by twig with infinite patience and labour—but the home of the human is built in a far more expeditious way. H Our simple credit furnishing system gives you all you want—and first rate goods too—and you pay by small degrees.

* It is an American invention. Shades of genius. They aro ever on the intellectual osv-can. They aeem to have genius packed in ospsules ready for jBdnrinostration.

Ho at oneo mimes her up, and determines the courso of intellectual oxygen administration that is most promising.

The British Association met K* week, and •cientifio, eemi-soientific. and dorm-#omi scientific genUemem have been tumbling over one another $11 order to prove thia thing wrong and tho other one right.

Professor Sohafpr-atla-to*. that "Wo may hope some day to Mas <3io material tbot composes a cell life prepared synthetically by chemists." So now we know! Thus are wo earth crawling creatures ruthlessly pulled down from our pedestals, and claused with the goods at tho chemist*. Can be obtained of all chemists! Not only that, but the worthy Professor has furnished the basis of the recipe upon which tho chemist may prepare living matter. The ingredients are "carbon, oxygen, and nitrogen, with certain inorganic salts, like chloride of sodium, aaha of calcium magnesmm. and a few other salts." This is too bad, but, as Senega has said, "It is folly to die of the fear of death," though the Professor has really unnerved us, for the chloride of sodium and the salts of. calcium within u* begin to firx.

Now the fly-wheel is an inanimate thing, and tiny bo excused, but we cannot excuse these scientists, and, like the fly-wheel, they ought really to give us notice, so that we may catch our breath, and not shatter »o many illusions "without any warning." There have been several flanueMtc inquests this past week, Flannelette has built up many fortunes, and these have been
made by the Englishman's fondness for illusions. It owes its popularity to thq fact that while «t does not contain one panicle of flannel, it is got up to look like the real thing. So <0 be successful in business you must make something that looks like something else. "Rich Stilton" and "Prime Chcdder" cheese we are now told ere imported from abroad, and best English baoon cornea from America. Thus are our iUusions shattered and knocked down like ninepins.
If ever we want to hurt a man we aim at hi.i head. Accordingly a German writer, aarcnsticalJy mucking our bald heads I suppose, stakes that them is on record a head of hair ten and a half feet long. Shades of a barber's pole! This is aiceso where the barber might be excused for absolutely refusing to give a shampoo, for a ten-foot shampoo may be no joke. Strange to relate, thi.i head of hair grew on no woman's head, but belonged to an Indian chief. Melisande in the story, like the heroines of many others, had hair aihioh reached from her chamber window to the ground. Thia has always seemed unlikely to me in an age when (wo have heard it whispered) few women can sit on their own hair. Ij. is stated that it' wo of the uglier sex cho c we might bravo hair like women. Men who never cut their locks, liko the hirsute monks of Russia, the goatherds of Italy, and the Javan savages, have hair as long as women. But, of course, these people d<* not live in England, where the Custom is not to have any hair at all after the age of forty.
