life and its duties, yields to the health-fraught influences of air and exercise. But only he who trusts to his own legs, ready to rough it, changing his horizon day by day, can fully appreciate the charm of home-travel. I never feel so content with my lot as when returning from

holiday ramble. Who would be querulous that, with ten pounds in his pocket, and knapsack on shoulder, can go forth, wander lovingly over his birthland, and live for a month amid sunshine and beauty ?

The subjoined table will be found useful by those who make the tour on foot. The distances by crossroads and along the cliffs must be regarded as approximate only.

The trip, either going or returning, may be made direct by steamers from Bristol to Hayle, calling at Ilfracombe and Padstow when the weather permits. — From Liverpool to Hayle, to Penzance and Falmouth, and on to Southampton.-From London to Plymouth, Falmouth, or Penzance, by the Irish steam-packets, which call at these ports both going and returning.

TAE figures in the third column, placed opposite the places at which

the day's journey ended, denote the days of the month, and show what distances may be accomplished in the course of four weeks.
