In Lord Holland's reminiscences there is a story told on the authority of Lord Albeuiarlo concerning the au? thorship of the "Junlus" letters. Al bemnrlo was present at a dinner where n conversation was started between Dudley North nnd Sir Philip Francis. The former rallied tbo?lattcr somewhui rndcly its the author of "Juntas" and Bald it whs valu to deny It. Francis grew angry and with uio-e solemnity than was usual exclaimed; I "l?o you met.n to tell me seriously tint] I nm n scoundrel or liar? I have de tiled distinctly my being the author, nnd after that they who believe 1 am must bei love mo to be n liar or a scoundrel, or both." Dudley North then changed his buttery. At hist he s;iid: "In short, ii Is Idle to talk so much about it. We nil, In truth, know how it Is. Lloyd" (Lord Greuville'a privat* secretary) "wrote the letters und you corrected the, press." Francis at these words seemed startled and answered, us Albcinnrlc thought, with emotions of surprise, "You have made worse guess ? lr In your life than that." ,.-un Confirmed. . .uN, D.

This is dis? posed oi' in ihe intestine.*. When eat-! rn in the ordinary forms, us fat meat, butter, etc., the fat separates out lu the stomach and does not iu the least Interfere with the work of the gnstrl? juice on the other food, but when s noil fatty food bus been Intimately mix? ed with grease the latter prevents the gastric juke getting at the food it could digest. Fish fried in oil or but? ler Is by no means the most marked example, n? the fat does not penetrate very deeply. Potatoes mashed with butier are rather worse, nnd minced vegetables fried with butter arc bad offenders. The reason advanced ex? plains why pork is difficult of diges? tion. The muscular libers are mixed up with fat cells, and by the liberation of ihe oil In each tiny cell the eaten pork Is made into au oily paste. A very strong stomach will do the worV; required, but It is not a fair task to impose frequently, and a weak stom? ach will refuse t > do anything beyond reminding its owner by u few- stnb.t that it will not stand such treatment.
