A LUCKY PROFESSION. In America it seems to be easier for a good- looking type-writer to get married than any other woman who has to earn her own living. A lady who has machines in all the leading hotels of Chicago says that she is constantly on the alert for good-looking girls to manipulate the machines, for the reason that they marry before they are long at work, and they marry well. Out of eleven type writers whom she has employed in the last twelve months, eight have married and each one has done well. Not long ago, in the corridor of a prominent hotel, the machine was closed, and upon a card tied to it was written-" Type-writer married and happy. Next! A remarkable equestrian feat is going to be attempted by a gentleman well known in the sport- ing circles of Paris. On the 1st of July he intends starting on horseback from the Place de l'Odeon, with the determination of arriving in Berlin within the space of eight days. A considerable amount of endurance will be involved in the undertaking, as the rider intends to take no rest on the way. The horse, perhaps, will want a little off time to itself.

He held it invitingly open, and Mr Fergusson went on.
