HIIAXN.IAN rubber export, according to a recent Foreign Office report,, amounted, in the year ended June .'i0, 1897, to 22,315 tons, and 9100 tons or' this was from Para. About half goes to Europe and half to the United States. The value of the year's pro- duce was nearly £ 2,000,000. THE owners and ratepayers of houses in the vicinity of the London and North-Western railway station, Euston-road, Morecam.be, having recently memorialised the directors of the company named with reference to a proposed stonemason's yard in New Queen-street, the following reply has been received from the secretary of the London and North- Western Railway Company, dated March 2: "In reply to your letter of February 11, to the chairman of the company and myself, I have made inquiry into the matter, and find that the applicants for a site on the company's land in Station-road. Morecambe, for the purpose of a stonemason's yard, do not propose to use sawing machines, but merely a planing machine, and I am informed that no nuisance will be caused thereby. I understand that similar- machines to the one that is proposed to be used at Morecambe are in use at other seaside towns, and that no complaint has been received with regard to them."

They have been two Duchesses of Buccleuch, two Duchesses of Sutherland, the Duchess of Atholl, tho Duchess of Bedford, the Duchess of Wellington, the Duchess of Roxburghe, the Duchess of Argyll, and,, for a very short time, the present Duchess of Devon- shire, when her Grace was the Duchess of Man- chester.
