wilful vibjlicu. j Here is a cure for drunkenness :—'Half an ounce .of ground quassia steeped in a pint of vinegar is recommended highly as a cure for drunkenness. A teaspoonful in a ljttle water should be taken every time the liquor felt. It satisfies the craving iand produces a feeling of stimulation andstrength.

Mr John Jackson gi Kennode Street has shown us the finest sample qt potatoes ;Ave have seen for a long time. They are Suttpn's "Plourbiill" and are ths second crop this season, having been planted on the 2nd January. Thirteen tubers weigh lT^lbs, one of them turning' the 1 scale at i§lb. Mr Jackson has grown no less that three crops in succession \of American Earlies this year. Fivepcnce for a pair of boots cannot be regarded' I'as extravagant. A well-known firm in South London offered to supply the Guardians of St, Saviour's, Southwauk, with boots and shoes at prices ranging from the number, of, coppers, mentioned to thg stately sum of one shilling. Not, be it understood, for the personal wear of the guardians themselves, but for the feet of the paupers whom they have under their charge. Some i members of. the.
