It AMUSEMENTS IN RADNORSHIRE.âA Welob magistrate writes aB followa: The inhabitants of district of Wales amuse themselvea by various lawl^. pranks. Sometimes they destroy the ornament^ trees of a neighbouring squire; at another time sack a church and smash the harmonium to pieceÃ- Not long since the throat of an inoffensive dookel was found cut in the morning in a vicar's field. Ij*. police, too, are roughly handled, and, in a midnig^ affray with a party of eight or ten disguised recently, had some difficulty in maintaining their 0^' The chief delight, however, of the inhabitants is no and then on winter nights to assemble together to tb number of 200. They then march along the turnpi* roads for miles near the river and brooks, where the salmon are breeding. Some of the party beat IIJI. provised drums and let off guns, while others are spesj!' ing fish on the fords by torchlight. The greater p?f~ tion are fantastically dressed and disguised. Accord^' to individual fancy, they turn their coats inside wear shirts outside, and muffle their heads; the leaders generally blacken their faces.

Turkish Hot Air and Vapour Bath, made a valuable addition to the appliances for t promotion of health, which now receive greater a tention than they did in formtr years in this county Along with the requisites of the original Turj^ baths, this useful apparatus possesses the ad van tag*' i of portability, simplicity, durability, and nees, which last element should always find place in hygienic reforms. The por'tabi11 T of the apparatus makes it available at any time for use in the bath room, dressing J room, nursery, or sick room. The simp'1. city of its construction is such that a bath o, hot air only or toot air and vapour combine can be obtained in a few minutes, and be taken from fifteen to forty minutes at a cos of not more than threepence. However enjoyab the ordinary Turkish bath may be, it is a luxury f quent indulgence in which makes holes in the poc^ tnf and, therefore, the Messrs. Allen deserve credit exercising their ingenuity in the interest or economic householders who like to keep themselves and t families healthy and clean. Their Bronchitis KeW are also well worthy of notice, being a grrat impr° ment upon any we have seen before.
