TO THE EDITOR. Sir, —My mind is greatly relieved by the letter on the above subject from "A "Woman.” Having been in the backblocks for some long time tlie sights in. town always amuse and interest but sometimes disgust me, when 1 come into civilisation. 1 could not make out what these. “ things” were. 1 at first thought that they might be some, "antediluvian insects” blown out of the crevices of the rocks during the recent gales; but no, or if so we should have found them in the country long ago My second thought was that some of the “ iumris ’’ escaped from the Turkish harems. If the latter hypothesis be correct they would lj« very useful iu the country districts (o turn into the paddocks to scare the birds off the grain ; they would certainly "scare 'em.” and so identify themselves with their ha-retn-seaiem ’• .life. Can you toll mo how much per decen they cost, and the best shop to buy ’em at?--I am, etc.. A Mere Max. January 4.
