Ther Are Import d From
In most districts of Great Britain
toads are moderately numerous; more
numerous, iiidee-i, than might be im
agined, for they are not animals that
court publicity. In the faee of this il
is rather surprising to hear that toads
are now being imported into this couii-
try from Austria. They are packed in
wooden boxes filled with moss, and on
their arrival fetch as much as from $15
to $20 per hundred. Toads have long
been an article of commerce here; in
most welt ordered gardens the visitor
will occasionally le startled by a quaint
apparition on the pathway, puffing
like an asthmatic old .gentleman, and
the suburban market gardeners and
nurserymen very frequently have them
in their frames and greenhouses and
about their grounds. But until re
cently our horticulturists have been
satisfied with the exertions of the na
tive toads in ridding them of slugs,
grubs and noxious insects. It is possi
ble that the Austrian toad may
be larger and more voracious than
onrs, and this may explain the fact
of its imporht-tion. At present it
does not seem to have put in nn apiear

of toads and green frogs is usually
kept. At nny rate the new visitant.
if only as useful as the native animal,
dtwerves a hearly welcome as a cheap
and useful ally of the gardener, for
not only does tho toad live to an ex
treme old age, but it has the nn usual
merit of finding its own provinder and
lodging. And beyond this it has much
more good nature in it that its forbid
ding exterior would seem to indicate.

Mosaic was applied with good effect
by the Romans to portraiture, which
gained in durability -what it lost in
nnisb. Instances are given of Cara-
calla a gladiators and the friends of the
tmperor Oommodus. whose ortraits
were erected in a jiortico of his gar-
uen. r-any in tne first century B. C,
mosaic had become a necessary part of
omciai iurniture, and Mr. Parry quotei
Suetonius, who tell3 us how Csesar car-

mat nis otlicial "pavement" might be

of mosaic suggested the use of native
materials. ,vnore marbles could not
be obtained stones of various colors
and clay, baked red or black, were em-

snjjCTu rrequenuy, as nas been re
marked before, the composition is So
superior to the execution that it is im
possible not to believe that the originals
were the work of able artists. Arid
thus an additional interest is imparted
to mosaics as preserving some record
of the composition of ancient pictures
and wall paintings. Interesting as
mosaics are which represent my.
thological subjects, those are even
more interestinc- which illustrate eon-
temporary life. '"One of the best
examples of the kind is tho grea
mosaic of Italiea near Seville." This
represents the interior of a Roman eir
eus, and bears testimony to the, import
ance of a city of which little remains,
though It was founded by Scipio
Africanus, and was the birthplace of thn
Emperors Trajan, Hadrian and Theo-
dosius. A still finer specimen of
mosaic representing the entire scene
of the cirens is at Lyons. This is fullr
described, and is an excellent illustra
tion of the lively interest taken by the
Romans in the games of the circus.
Another favorite subject was taken from
tne kingdom of Neptune. There is a good
instance of this on the coast of Spain.
on the floor of the Church of St Michael
at Barcelona, "where the whole dorr
of the ocean kingdom is portrayed in
mosaic, with fishes, nereids. and tri-
tons sporting among the waves, and
indicating the spot once occupied by a
temple of Neptune." These subjects
were very popular toward the close of
the first century A. D., a fact attributed
to the extension of Roman commerce
by sea. Of all such desisrns the Balm
is given by Mr. Gambler Parry to the
mosaic found at Constantine, described
in glowing language, which should be
studied, as it contains, among other
naRworable expressions, a fine enohem- i
