There's 0110 tiling to the ladies 1 plainly wish to say ;
I'm a man of no pretenses ; I'm llfty, if a day ;
I'm neither gay nor amiable, I'm fussy, and I'm plain ;
Hut girls, you needn't plot for ine all plotting is in
I never sec the biighlust eyes, and all their witchery
Is wasted ammunition, if its aim is hurting me;
I never see the reddest lips, I'm proof against all smiles ;
J rather think I'm not the man for any woman's wiles.
1 can sew on my buttons, my sloekings J can mend,
And women's hands around iny room are not what J
1 want no knitted, netted things, no traveling bags, no
No slippers and no comforters, no painted plaques, no
1 buy the things that 1 lequire ; so, ladies, hear me say,
All such attentions spent on meaic simply thrown away ;
So .shake your curls and give your gifts, bewilder all
But just remember, if you please, that I am not the

But, ladies, all attentions from this date I hope will

For 1 consider one tiling sure as anything can be
I will not marry any girl, and none 'shall marry me.

plaques and screens,
'Of photographs of famous men, and Beauty's living
While on the hcarlh-stonc sits his wife she's sweet
and good, I know.
And if you tell him of the words he said a year ago,
He answers you, without a blush, "Oh, that's the
usual way ;
No one believes a single word old bachelors may say ;
When the right angel comes along, they marry any

The Herald of December 27th says : An
exploring party, under the leadership of
Mr. Charles Winnicke, an experienced ex
plorer and bushman, has just made a suc
cessful journey through a large portion of
unknown country in the interior of Aus
tralia. The party was provided with camels
and horses, but the latter were never re
quired. Mr. "Winnicke made a start from
CoAvarrie Station, on the "Warburton River,
in latitude 2S , and traversed the country
to the north as far as latitude 27 , effecting
a connection Avith previous explorations near
Goyder'sPillars. A most remarkable natural
feature in the Taillon "Range Avas discovered
by Mr. "Winnicke during his Herbert ltiver
explorations. Several long stages Avithout
Avater Avere encountered a feAV days after the
party left CoAvarrie Station, and a distance
of from 200 to 300 miles had to be traversed
across the highest sandridges in Australia
before Avater could again be obtained. The
camels beharcd nobly, although canying
immense loads Aveighing between 700 and
800 lbs each. The party had recovered
sulliciently in two days to make the second
stiige of about 150 miles without Avater.
Many more long stages of between 100 and
200 miles Avithout water were tra veiled, and
although the leader avus far from Avell during
the greater part of the time the discipline

the occurrence of any mishap. In many
instances the sandridges, Avllich Avere from
300 to d00 feet high, and very steep, had to
be crossed at right angles. Two large rivers

Germany.- ThcV'lradilional foe" has beaten
the Parisian on liis own cherished ground,
Avhere he has hitherto reigned supreme.
Great, therefore, is the outcry, and ''patriotic
anguish" lills the hearts of newspaper
writers at the idea of French children play
ing Avith toys of German manufacture. All
sorts of means are suggested by the Chauvins
to put 'a stop to this fresh Teutonic invasion,
but none appear likely to be adopted, for
the simple reason that the Parisian wwvww
