Rudyard Kipling gives an amus ing' account of his apprenticeship as a poet. When, more than 20 years ago, he was filling the post of assistant edi tor of the Pioneer in India, he got into the habit of scribbling verses by way of filling in odd moments, and these would occasionally find their way into the paper, principally at the request ol the native foreman of the printers. "I like your poetry much," this foreman would say: "it is so useful to fill in odd corners with." Students in Cwiimn y. An extraordinary increase in the number of students is noted at those of the German universities which are situated in the large cities, notably Munich and Leipsic, while the smaller universities.lErlangen. Gottingen, etc.) are losing ground. The Berlin Tageblatt suggests that in order to reestablish some sort of a balance the increasingly numerous students from other coun tries should be allowed to study only at the smaller universities. Weather Cycles. A long weather cycle of about 35 years seems to appear in the British Isles. From records of 90 years, Mr. Douglas Archibald concludes that a dry period has just passed, and that the years 1903 to about 1920 will show more than average rainfall and low barometer, and two bushels per acre deficiency in wheat yield. Careful Euthuniutttii. "I saw Nervey at the football game, and he seemed to be very enthusiastic when Harvard won. "Oh, yes; he was very enthusiastic.

While there are many more women than men in Prussia, the deaths in that i kingdom lasl year included only o2:i,0'2 females, as against ::54.241 males.

The reckless prodigality with which in ancient Egypt the uper classes squandered away the labor and lives of the people is perfectly startling, in this respect, as the monuments yet remain ing abundantly prove, they stand alone and without a rival. We may form some idea of the almost incredible waste when we hear that 2,000 men were occupied for three years in carrying a single stone from Elephantine to Sais, that the canal of the Red sea alone cost the lives of 120.000 Egypuans. and that to build one of the pyramids required the labor of 360,000 men for 20 years.

As the moisture in the air increases, the shell becomes entirely red, and remains so throughout the rainy season. Both Pioneer.
