We do not demand literarymerit in the entries for this

com- petition. We should like them, to be simple and straight7 forward, and we ask no more. Readers will differ, we feel sure, in their conception of the highest qualities of human nature. Some will think of heroiSms and instances of great courage, .

some of kindly, actions, some of patience or persistence in difficult circumstances. All will be Welconie.
