THB Tour du Monde states that a postal service by carrier pigeon is to be established in New Zealand between Otea or Grande-Barrier Island and the capital. The service will be twice a month, and the letters, written on thin paper with pencil, will be en- closed in quills. IN connection with the famous Colquhoun case, it is pointed out that at the examination proof was given that the firm only had an income of £ 800 a year, and were paying on an income of E3000 a year. Therefore it is urged that, in fairness to the credi- tors, the wrongly charged income-tax money re- ceived by the Inland Revenue should be returned. THERE is no doubt that the free wheel bicycle is in great favour now amongst town as well as country riders. The idea which at first prevailed, that it was dangerous in traffic, is not held by those who have tried it frequently under these conditions. The Army and Navy Stores and many other firms do a big and increasing business now in free wheels. NEW municipal buildings at Norwich are proposed by the corporation at a cost of £ 100,000. THE announcement made by Lord Rosebery at Bath that he is about to issue as a companion volume to his Life of Pitt a similar review of the career of Chatham, was (the London correspondent of the Scotsman is informed) a surprise to many of his most intimate friends. There were some of them who, thinking that they must have heard of the work if it were really on hand, read the passage in the speech to mean that he was about to start on this new literary task. The work has, however, been carried much further than that. The manuscript is already in the hands of the typewriter, by whom it is being copied for the printer. THE new technical school, Dunfermline, recently opened, is a substantial and elegant structure of three floors designed by Mr. D. Barclay, of Glasgow. In- ternally the school is admirably arranged, ample provision being made for instruction in various branches of technical education. The building has been erected at a cost of between LI,0,000 and C12,000.
