THE KING AND THE BOTANIST. A story illustrating the simple bonhomie of the King of Sweden and Norway is told in the Echo de Pa1.is by M. Gaston Bonnier, the botanist. M. Bon- nierwas botanising near Stockholi-ii, when he met a stranger similarly occupied. The two botanists fra- ternised, and M. Bonnier suggested thal they should lunch together at an inn. No, come home and lunch with me instead," said the stranger; and he led the way to the palace and opened the gate. M. Bonnier was naturally astonished; but his new acquaintance was most apologetic. I'm sorry," he said, but I happen to be the King of this country, and this is the only place I've got to entertain anybody in." So they went in and lunched and talked botany together all the afternoon.

REMARKABLE WATCH.
