WHY NOT REVIVE: PING-PONG. I cannot, help putting in a word for ping-pong (says a writer in "The By- stander") for ping-pong was an excellent game for the home, but it was killed by being over-boomed, and by the fact that a certain number of players devoted them- selves to it so assiduously and became so skilful that the ordinary mortal was driven out of court. I maintain, how- ever, that thi,s was a pure accident, and not an accident of so serious a nature as to render recovery impossible. At ,Chri stliias -time we can afford to be old- fashioned, and since there seems to be no startling novelty to ,a,Trest our attention, I recommend my readers to give ping-pong another chance. I feel sure that we shall derive any, amount of amusement there- from.

COSTLY OBSTINACY.
