At a meeting of the Entomological
society In London the president, Mr. O.
II. VerralL told an amusing story to
prove that a knowledge of Insects may
even be useful in settling questions In
literary history. Commentators on the
works of Robert Louis Stevenson were
trying in vain to discover whether the
notes made by him In a certain book
were written before or after he took up
his residence in Samoa. It happened
that a fly bad been squeezed between

The only railroad open was the. line
to Havre, which had been broken up
close to. the station, but farther on was
intact. : In order to get there we had
to climb three barricades. I offered
my concierge 5 francs to carry my box,
but his wife would not hear of his
risking his life in the streets. Ten
francs; the same result. But at the

mind and, with an "Allez, mon.aml;
