IENCLOSE herewith a photograph of the primitive form of merry-go-round to be seen at most hill fairs in Northern India. It is a roughly made miniature great wheel, to which are attached four small cars similar to the one seen in the photograph. It is propelled at a considerable speed by hand, and is an extremely popular form of amusement; nor is it expensive, considering that three minutes’ undiluted joy can be obtained for the small sum of a farthing.
