Once when I let him out he ran right around the front, through the fence, on to the footpath, up the lane, through the hedge, into the backyard next door.. He. started to dig and then I caught him. To-day Hoppity got out of his hutch and ran around the house once and ran back into his hutch with me after, him. To-day also the next-door rabbit dug under the fence about three times and had a bit or a fight, with Hoppity. lfle rabbit next door is a little menace. He's only a little rabbit, but he's a good little lighter and digger. Onejiight Hoppity got out ofhis hutch and went in next door and ate all the tops of the beans there. . Often rabbits are quite a pest when they get out and dig in the garden and eat the vegetables. Some nights, dogs come in and bark at Hoppity and wake me up and I have to throw stones at the dogs. Sometimes when they come in at, night they knock over a lot of my plants and then I have to replant them. . Prize of 15 to Anthony Langham (9), 158 Hawthorne Parade, Haberfield.

"GARDNER": "One morn-ing I made a gardener and took a photo of it," writes Janet Read (10), 167 Pennant St., Parramatta, who wins 10 for this photograph. Interesting stamp depicts Columbus By WATERMARK Christopher Columbus, the world-renowned Genoese navigator, has appeared on stamps from many countries, including this 1920 issue put out by the St. Kitts and Nevis Islands. The desion was taken frnm another made originally in 1903, which was based on the colonial badge, with Columbus displayed on the deck" of his flagship, examining the approaching land. . A portrait of George V was also included. . In deference to his discovery of St. Kitts in 1493, during his second voyage, the do square mile island was for many years known as St. Christopher. St. Kins, "The mother colony of the West Indies," is Britain's oldest possession in that region. An unusual discrepancy occurred with the design relating to Columbus; he was shown sighting land through a telescope, an instrument not invented until 1608, almost a century after Columbus died!
