IT is difficult to account for the origin of a great many phrases in current use," remarked McSwilligen, or even to see their relevancy." Yes," replied Squildig.' Now, there's that expression, on its last legs,' meaning something about to end. Its jpprop iateness is very doubtful. For instance, a kangaroo is nearly always on its legs, but where can you find a more striking'example of vitality ?" BLANK That's a nice little safe, old man; I suppose you and your wife keep your valuables there, and you each have a key?" Dash No there you are out of it. Only I have the key, and my wife does not even know the combination." Blank: "You must, indeed, have something very valuable in it. What is it? Now, own up." Dash Oh, just those things a man is obliged to keep from his wife—my collar-studs, ties, and shoe-laces are all there for if they weren't she would always be wearing them." IT is a very remarkable fact how certain districts produce a constant supply of first-rate professional cricketers. Every cricketer has heard of Lascelles Hall, the famous village near Huddersffeld, which produced such players as the Lockwoods, Bates, the Thewlises, and Allan Hill. The town of Nottingham g raised and reared Daft, Shrewsbury, Gunn, Scotton, and Selby-five of the greatest cricketers that ever lived. Then there are several villages and small towns close to Nottingham where cricketers appear indigenous to the soil, just as primroses are in certain localities. Sutton-in-Ashfield, for example, was the infant home of Morley, Shaw, Barnes, and Brigga. Thames Ditton, too, and Mitcham have always been fauious for the cricketing abilities of the natives.
