Strangs Fishing Matctiss. In the olden time ln England lords end ladies sometlraes lnvented fueer amusements. They were always ea the lookout for some uovelty, and oae of the strange8t tbey discovered was flshing by a goose. A line wltb a batt ed hook attached having been fastened to tho goose, tled to Its leg, she was flung Into the water from the boat la which were nll the gay lords nnd la? dies. Then, when a plke cnugbt tbe balt ahe waa sport Indeed. a royal bat tie between blrd and flsb. nnd all tbe time, between the loud splnsblngs. wheellngs nnd floe/iderlngs. the on lookers in tbe boat giving vent to their fcellnga ln cheers. handclapplngs and hnndkerchlef wavlng. But the goose was usually tbo vlctor and ended tbe struggle by landing its prisoner on the shore. where Its quack-quack as lt cleared itself from tbe line and wad dled away ended the scene. The lake of Monteltb, ln the southwest of Pertb ahlre. was often the scene of such an glLng matches. Ths Soldier Ant. The lion ls the king of beaats. bat all of his magniflcent strengtb and fcroclty would nvall him notbing wben he faced a raere ant But tbis ant is not the usuni kind which peacefully goes about Its domestlc dutles day by day. It ia the terrlble drlver or soldlcr ant, said to be tbo most invlncfble creature ln the world. Against these tiny enemies no mnn or band of men. uo lion or tlger, not even a berd of elepbants, can do anytblng bnt hur? riedly get out of tbe way.

Apropos of tbis remark. It ls amta ing to note that "mnnners" was tbe name given to the remnants of a meal. These came to the servants as ottlclal perqulsltes; hence our well worn ex pre8slon before emptylng a dl?_, "Leave tbe last sllce (or whateter lt may be) for manners." though It votes were coflected on this point lt ls hardly likely that any of us would have taken it as it stands in the original.
