The most remarkable gold beetles in the world are found in Central America. The head and wing cases are brilliantly polished with a lustre as of gold itself. To sight and touch they have all the appearance of metal. The gold and silver beetles are worth from £5 to. £lO apiece. Those who really would like a first-class second-hand cycle in thorough repair will find a large assortment to choose from at the “ Speedwell Pycle ’Works,” 155 George street.—[AuVT.]
