WAKEFIELD.--The Natural History Walks have been continued this summer. The weather has been very favourable, only one Saturday being wet; on that day an indoor lecture was given instead of the walk, in which the children became acquainted with the development and life of frogs. Various parts of the country in the neighbourhood of Wakefield were visited. At the beginning of each walk the children fixed the cardinal points, the direction and force of the wind, and the different kinds of clouds which were visible at the time. In the course of the walk they gathered as many specimens as possible of the flowers then in blossom, talked about the seeds of the faded ones and of the buds of others. Birds were watched while flying or walking; the question of the use of insects was discussed, and horses, cows, sheep, and dogs were compared with as regard to their structure and their mode of life. There will be one more walk this term, and it is to be hoped that the weather will keep fine, for, although the number of children who come is not large, they all show an eager interest and are keen about the work.
