The Noisy Frog.—Those who traverse the weary railway journey from Little Eiver to Christchurch have a few diversities on the way which helped to pass away the time. There,is always Lake Ellosmere, with its many specie of water fowl, of which the pukaki, with their long red legs and dark plumage, the graceful swan holding noisy confab, and the grey duck fostering its yonnp, which will provide next year'e sportßinen with a profitable bag. But added to these attractions on the way there is still another, which, nt this time of the year, forces itself upon fha passenger's mind. There is a great loaiins as if a high wind were blowing and groaning through the eaves of the station building at which the train is pulled up, but the lake is calm and without a ripple. But this continuous roar i-< occasioned by no high wind, but by the frogs' which inhabit the swampy shores of the lake. Their roar is very pronounced, and the ignorant passenger might easily find it hard to account for the anomaly.
