The Wellington ' Press' is responsible for the following:—" Girls of a marriageable age do not like to tell how old they are, but you can find out by following the subjoined instructions, the young lady doing the figuring -.—Tell her to put down the number of the month in which she was born, then to multiply it by two, then to add 5, then to multiply it by 00, then to add her age, then to subtract 365, then to add 115, then tell her to tell yon the amount she has left. The two figures to the right will tell you her age, and the remainder the month of her birth. For example, the amount is 822, she is 22 years old, and was born in the eighth month (August). Try it." This is how they retail Scripture in the House of Commons. Thus said the gold kiDg, Mr Pritchard Morgan :—" The first instance of a royalty was when Joseph went down to a land he (the speaker) had no right to name in that house (Goshen). He established a corner in corn, and did a very good thing indeed. . . . The next year he went back, got the land, and then found that he had got the whole bag of tricks in his hand."
