A PHENOMENON.—An American traveller, describing a tropical shower, wrote to a friend in the following words The rain-drops were extremely large, vary- ing in size from a shilling to eighteenpence." WHY, INDEED ?-" Why do guns burst?" asks a contemporary, and then devotes nearly a column to answering the question. Guns burst because powder is put into them. You might use a gun seven hun- dred years, and it wouldn't burst if you kept powder out of it. < HUKBANO AND WIFE.-While husband and wife are living together one cannot take criminal proceedings against the other in respect of property under the Married Women's Property Act. But this can be done while they are living apart, though not even then as to any act done while they were living together un- less property has been wrongfully taken by one of them when about to leave the other. If criminal pro- ceedings be taken by the wife, both are competent to give evidence one against the other. But if the pro- ceedings be taken by the husband, there is some doubt as -to, whether he is admissable as a witness against her. To remove this doubt a bill has been introduced by Sir Ricbard Cross and Mr. Hinde Palmer.
