tragedy were all supplied from life. The pen of the authoress has been dipped in her own heart's blood, and her page is blotted with many tears. The scene between the stainless but human wife and her guilty husband is original and almost unique. For the wife to remind the husband that she also is a creature of like passions with himself, and that she, although equally tempted has, neverthless, not slipped, is a mode of proceeding which in olden days would have been deemed utterly inconceivable. But in Miss Brooke's hands the scene is conceivable enough, and infinitely more true to nature than the usual interview between icicled virtuo and lawless passion.

abundant means to support children, should be unable to find some among the great crowd of unwanted little ones to supply the blank in their hearts and homes occasioned by their having no children of their own.

If there exists a woman of means, or a few women of means, who would take up this work, which you hare proved to be really needed, and who could carry it on under more convenient conditions than arc possible in a publisher's office, where much other work is being done, they would be abundantly rewarded. This practical experiment proves the need and success of the work which can be done. Even the case which opens up the vista of possible difficulties in the future was perfectly bonâ fide. The foster-mother took the child from pure motherly love. Very likely she thought that if there was a child in the home her husband would b: attracted from his gambling; but gambling is such a vice that, when once it lays hold of a man, neither wife nor child can stay the victim in his downwarii path. The little girl thus unmoored is likely to find a still better home with clients who have been waiting a long time for a child to suit them,

I do hope you will lay it on the heart of some woman or women, who are able to rise to the human sympathy required to carry on this work, to take it up where you are obliged to lay it down. You can commend the work to the loving care and co-operation of women, having proved what can be done.

THE BABY EXCHANGE.

TO BE DISCONTINUED. I am sorry to have to announce that next year I shall not continue the Baby Exchange. The risks are to) great. I have made an honest attempt to see if it were possible to act as intermediary between the owners of superfluous babies and childless homes. I have proved its possibility, and there can be no doubt as to the urgent need for some such agency. But the sudden and unexpected return of one of the adopted children on my hands, owing to the adopting father, whose character had been vouched for by unimpeachable authorities, falling before temptation and losing his means of livelihood, compelled me to reconsider the position. I have no hospital or institution to serve as temporary resting-place for the inevitable percentage of “returns." Yet some such home, it becomes more and more evident, is indispensable for the proper working of the Exchange. I have, however, other work to do than founding and managing such an institution. Neither have I any desire to find myself after a time saddled with the sole responsibility for the maintenance and e lucation of unwanted babies whose parents have disappeared, and whose adopted parents, despite all legal undertakings to the contrary, return the adopted child upon my hands.

Hence, although I shall continue from time to time to arrange for the adoption of such children as are already on offer, I shall not in future advertise the Exchange or endeavour to extend its operations. As I have already said, the risk is too great.

The following is the report handed me by the laly managing the Exchange as to the net result up to date :

In the fourteen months we have carried on the work systematically we have got thirty-five children, i.e., nineteen girls and sixteen boys, successfully adopted. These children fave been adopted by true lovers of children, who have taken them as their own children purely for love's sake. Therefore one hundred and five people have been benefited-seventy foster parents and thirty-five children. Even if we deduct the few unmarried people who have adopted children—and they are very few, not more than five-we still can count that the Fones of sixty-five people have been brightened, and a hundred lives benefited for life, by the work of the Baby Exchange. That is not a bad record for fourteen months.

In the course of this time we have had one hundred and twenty-two applications for children from fo:ter parents, and one liundred and sixty-five children on our books. The reason we have not been able to satisfy the cravings for children of more of these would be parents, is the immense amount of Correspondence involved in each case, als) the confidential nature of the work, which co the work to be entirely done by the one person put in charge of it.

That the work nee is doing, and is absolutely good, when done as it has been done by this bureau, is abundantly proved by this department in the short time it has been in existenco It seems shocking that people who have loving hearts and

THE ORIGIN OF THE WORD “CAUCUS.” Caucus” is one of those words which everybody uses, but of which very few can tell whence it has come. An explanation of its origin is given in the New England Magazine for November, by C. W. Ernst, who writes of “ words coined in Boston." That mint of speech seems to have been early active.

It will be news to most of us that Massachusetts, which was, from 1634 to 1684, a Commonwealth, in name and fact, was the first civil government on earth to call itself by that name:

Ten years later, in 1619, Cromwell and England followed the precedent of Massachusetts and Connecticut, and an Act of Parliament made England “a Conmonwealth anl a Free State."

AN EIGHTEENTH CENTURY TRADE UNION. The famous word which has become so current in politics arose about the middle of last century :

The finance debate of the forties, when the Land Bank tried a hand at the issue of paper money, occasioned the word erurus, which has become a part of the English language. To express contidence in the bills of the Land Bank, Sam Adams, the father of the patriot, organised a labour meeting. The mechanics of those days were generally paid in what we call store orders. To get their wages in money, if only in paper bills, seemed attractive. So the calkers formed a labour union and trust,—the word trust is theirs,-binding themselves under a penalty for the performance of their agreement,” which was to the effect that they would tako wages in merchandise or money only, money to include the notes of the Land Bank. This novel trust was perfecte i on Sunday, February 8, 1710, old style, and duly announc d in the papers of the time. The effect may be imagined.

A labour union was a novelty in Boston ; a labour trust occasioned something like consternation, particularly as it undertook to sustain the ominous Land Bank. Under British law, such a trust was a crime. To get rid of the Land Bank, which was at the bottom of all this oftending, the Boston merchants appealed to Parliament for relief, and obtainel it. Yet the calkers held together, and their cast-iron agreement became a by-word for any agreement from which there was no receding. The phrase "calkers' agreement” was carried into politics, and by 1760 we read of “the old and true Corcas," meaning the mechanics, also of the new and grand Corcas," meaning a committee of merchants who had adopted the method of the calkers. By 1763 we find the present spelling of caucus, the origin of the term falling into oblivion.
