Tlio social season iias opcnod with a
number of parties in this borough and
we hope there will be many more all
through the winter. Don’t sit and
hug the fires in your own home alone,
but invite others to help pass the timo
away with yon and sing, play gomes
and dance the cold evenings away, or
go and help others do so in their
homes. There is nothing like being
sociable and a few hours passed in
pleasant converse and joyous laughter
will make the working hours less
tedious and hard to boar. The gener

and plensure in this borough. Try

Gigantic and ricnxlnn Dream
of French Mnghiccrx.
French engineers have declared It is
perfectly feasible to convert the desert
of Sahara into a vast lake, thus open
ing to commerce great regions of the
Interior of Africa which can now only
be reached by long, tedioua and dan
gerous caravan journeys, says London
l Answers. They say that a large por
tion of the desert lies below the level
of the Atlantic, and that by digging a
canal to let In the waters of the ocean
the great change could be ejected
easily, and at a cost which would be
small compared to the benefits which
would accrue.
If the whole desert lay below the
level of the Atlantic, the flooding of
It would create a sea more than four
times as big as tho Mediterranean;
but, as the Sahara Is composed of ele
vated plateaux, mountain rangOB and
depressions, only a part would be cov
ered with water when the waves of
the ocean were let in, and the new sea
thus formed would be an irregular
body of water, probably of about the
same dze as the Mediterranean. Great
commercial cities would at once cprin*
up on its shores, and trade and civil
ization strike at once to »~e heart oi
Africa. The eoa of Sahara may ncvei
become a reality, but, in any event
it is a gigantic and pleasing dream.

1374 no rulor of Servia h3.s worn one
from 1374 to 1882 no Servian bore thi

of the London papers, at All Saintc
church, 'Wellington, In Somerset, th<
practice of giving cigarettes to member
of tho Bible class was started. It wa.
reported ' that this distribution o

of criticism, however, and the vica
