Wmis. th dramatist, who, among -otber service, wrote for him the play "Charles 1. When Wills was a boy ten years oli he was taken to see Edmund Kea play Macbeth. In the murder seen he was so affected by the realisti power of the actor that, seized with ; severe attack of nausea, he hurrie from the box. Ten years later he wa lunching at a chop house in Flee street when a man entered. sat dow: at- a table near him and ordered : meal. He was a perfect stranger t Wills. who, after a few minutes' prc pinquity, was again seized with a f! of nausea, from which he had not sul fered since as a boy he was at th theater on the occasion mentioned.

Milligan in 1 "The Jungle Folk lit Africa." that the s purpose of language is to conceal ] thought. and to comniserate the Afri- t can for his color is a waste of sym pathy. In illustration of this Mr. Mil ligan gives an amusing conversation b with one of his pupils. One day when s I was talking to Bojedi something in the course of the conversation promnll ed me to ask him whether he would t like to be a white man. He replied t I respectfully but emaphaticall.y in the d negative. I wished to know his rez- t C son. He hesitated to tell me, but I C was insistent, and at hsc he replied: I "Well, we think that we arc better I looking." t I g-sped when I thought of the vast ly ill looking faces I had seen in the C Jungles. and in apology for myself I C said: But you have not seen us in our own country. wl.ere there is no ma t laria and where -, e are not yeilow and d een. He quietly asked what color we were in our own country. to which I prompt ly replied. "Pink and white." Looking at me steadily for a mo ment. he remarked: "M Milligan. if I should see you in 3 your own country I don't believe I e should know you." n Long Winded Preachers. Dean Lefroy. who expressed the n - opinion that . ten minutes is long f enough for a sermon. would have met 0, t with scant sympathy from some di L vines of past centuries. says the West- t minster Gazette. Thomas Hooker considered three hours a fair average allowance for a sermon. though. on one occasion, when he was ill. he let his congregation off more lightly. Pausing at the end of fifteen minutes. he rested awhile and then continued his homily fcr two 0 hours longer. Cranmer's sermons were e each a small book when set up in type. t f and Baxter. Knox. Bunyan and Calvin rarely reached "Lastly, my brethren." ' under two hours. r George Herbert once said: "The par son exceeds not an hour in preaching, because all ages have thought that a competency," but a certain rector of Bilbury. Gloucestershire, was of an other opinion. for he never sat down under two hours. The squire, we learn, usually withdrew after the temt was announced, smoked his pipe out side and returned for the blessing. V Revenge In Ceylon. ' A system of Cingalese "black magic" Y 2 peculiar to the island is still practiced t] in some parts of Ceylon. It is stated that there are 4,440 different methods of causing ill to others. Here is a translation of one of these niethods of dealing with your enemy: "On Sunday eleven peya"-one peya equals twenty-four English minutes -"after sunrise Yama Devi"-the god of death and judgmnent-"goes to the west. Start at this hour; take a meal oft bluish rice; dress in red colored gar ments.

A few years ago an epidemic of measles broke out among the Indian tribes living on Vancouver island. in British Columbia, not far from Fort Rupert. and the shamans or medicine men came to the concltsion that a can nibal sorcerer, whom they termed the "hamatsu" (measles cannibal), was slaying their children to eat them and that he would continue to do so until he was killed. As they could not slay a ghost In his own person they arranged a ceremony in which one of their number posed as the cannibal and was treated as they would have liked to treat the real foe. This fact of a substitute was, of course, not made public, only the med icine men knowing the truth of the matter. Against a wall of rock was painted an imitation opening. in the center of which the "cannibal" was fastened. At the proper time, after going through various incantations, a cover ing was jerked away. exposing the cannibal apparently springing through, the solid roch. He pe l romptly grasp ed by two ef the priests. who dragged hinr out and rushed him through a fire which was burning in front of the place and which was surrounded by all the members of the tribe beating driuns and singing at the top of their;; voices. By somc jngzlery the canni bal was got rid of, a-nd the people were told that he had flown away through the air and would not come back. After this ceremony had been re peated several times to put an end to other epidemics, which were only too prevalent among the Indians, it grew into a sort of annual affair, managed by the members of a secret society whose members know that the sup posed "hamatsu" was only a man.

To enter the medical profession is to find oneself in most noble company. When Dante was led by Virgil into the presence of "the master of them that know" he saw Aristotle surrounded by a group of the sages of antiquity. Look at them as they are introduced one by one, and you will see that a fourth of them bear names illustrious in medi cine. To take note of but one-Hippoc rates is there. The student wil not turn to his pages now to learn what has to be taught in modern text books or class rooms. Yet he will do well to lay to heart the spirit that guided "the father of medicine" in drawing up the oath imposed on the students of the Hippocratic school. "With purity and with holiness," the candidate was made to swear, "I will pass my life and practice my art. Into whatever houses I enter I will go into them for the benefit of the sick, will abstain from every voluntary act of mischief and corruption." In the long succession of those who have enlarged the -bounds of his sci ence the student will meet with a Igreat army of men who have kept the spirit of that oath under higher sanc tions than were open to the pioneers whom the mediaeval poet consigns to a place in his inferno because, though blameless of sin, they had not been baptized.-Sir Alexander Simpson in London Quiver.
