BIDDY'S HALF HOLIDAY... Hmt Wonderful law Preiented Vefon the New Zealand Home, The New Zealand 'house of representatives has been doing some wonder,- ful things, and its latest achievement is a bill for a statutory half holiday for domestic servants, which has already received Ita Beeond reeding. ..According to this proposal, every mistress Is bound .to turn her servants out of her .house from three p. m. until. ten.-p. day In every .week. If the servant Is found employed at her ordinary work during tho statutory half holiday", the mistress will be liable to a penalty of S25."',lf 'the servants return tO'tociir homes for food during the time mentioned, the mistress must.wa.it on .them or be mulcted to the same tune,.bu,t,we take it, says the Westminster Gazette, that tho mistress has a legal'right'to refuse admittance.' The result -will be^ that a largo number of the servants' in the towi>, being country girls without friends, will be-driven to paradetEe rtreets for, these six hours of compuj- Bory holiday. The humorous completeness of .this proposal will, we arc afraid, be fatal to Its chances of becoming law. A prominent lady'politician has already avowed her preference for jev statutory half holiday .for overworked' mothers of large families who have rio oervonts. The husband will then be compelled to remain at home and mind his house in the absence of his wife, i Iniurance Against ItUoneu. , .. ! ' Insurance.

The snake struck wildly about a few times and then buried its fangs in its own body. "Almost instantly, the experimenter says, the reptile rolled over and died.

Truth. A friend and myself strolled over from Aldermaaton.tp view the ruins and as many of the "finds" as •werectill to be'seen. Mr. Davis, F. S. A., at present superintending the- operas tions, explained to us how/ivtien digging out an old well, he made the lucky discovery of a tunnel which conducted 1 him to an ancient gate, the existence of •which had not been before suspected. A windlass -had been fttted"up-over a well 18 feet deep, and men were digging out pailfuls of earth which, were being diligently hauled up.. For two weeks the work at this point had been going on, and within the last week it hod been discovered that this was an old Roman tub-well. The wood seemed.somewhat rotten, as might be expected after 1,600 years, .so that the raising of the tub' caused the grea-test anxiety.' The tub had been.. ingeniously,' fitted by Mr. Davis with two wooden shelves running all round it—one at the flip arid the other at the. bottom, both of whJ.eh \ served to protect it f toai'any strain during the preparation, for hoisting it, and al«o relieved the tub of its own weight during, the process of hoisting. After one unsuccessful attempt to bring it up, •during which a small portion of it wa» knocked off, it was triumphantly raised to light in a comparatively. perfect state of preservation. We expect that the tub -will shortly be on, view at the-. Beading museum, where there U already a beautiful collection of Silchei- ter relics. RED TURTLES. Tlifey Live and Brwcd In a Sprint Who** Temperature It a>tt Degree* That portion of southern or lower California called Hcll'a Half-Acre appears to be situated directly over a substratum of fire, which causes the mud and water to boil as if in a caldron, eays the St. Louis Bepublic. At one- place on the Half-Acre there are over 100 boiling springs and hot mud geysers- on a plat of ground that is not of greater extent than a common city square,. The chief spri-ng in this queer aggregation of boiling and spouting jets of mud and water is called the fountain: of the Boiled Turtles on. account ol its curious habit of occasionally ejecting- numbers of small red turtles. The temperature of this spring is 22G degrees, 14 degrees higher than tbe temperature required to boil water under ordinary atmospheric pressure. Notwithstanding the fact that the temperature is sufficient U> boil meat perfectly within a few minutes, the smalt- red turtles ..spoken of live and .breed there just-as the ordinary variety doea. in waters of common lakes, rivers and; other streams. .The spring is called the- fountain of Boiled Turtles because the queer, hard-shelled creature* of being: cooked perfectly done.
