Eight thousand French and British soldiers and sailors rendered the honours when the Riviera Entente Cordiale fetes began with the unveiling of the monument which the people of Nice have erected to the late Queen Victoria. At the ceremony was M. Poincare, the French Premier, who, in a glowing tribute to her late Majesty, s a i d : " From her exalted position on one of the most glorious thrones

she offered to the universe an example of all the personal virtues." The photograph was taken just after the unveiling of the statue, which shows her Majesty accepting floral offerings from youthful figures representing Nice, Cannes, Mentone and Grasse, four towns where she stayed. The band is playing "God Save the King," and the sailors of both nations are saluting.(Daily Mirror photograph.)

All the domestic servants and thciv mistresses and all the clerks of both sexes who have objected to the injustices of the Ins\iranrc Act as it applies to them will be interested iu a new organisation which begins operations to-day, lis title is The Ameml the Act League. Its address is St, Stephen's lionsc, Westminster, and it invites everybouy who is not content with the Act to become a member, The League is a n(m-party body, aiul its purpose is to bring ilie strongest possible piessme on ihe G o \ e n u n e n t to amend the Act in its uuimnerablc detective provisions. The League is arranging meetings to bo held all over the country, and has a stalf of hfty specially trained speakers, in addition to the M.P.s wlio have promised their ass:itance. To-morrow week, Tuesday, April 2 J , at 8,iiO p,m., the inauguial meeting ot 'J'hc Amend the Act League will be held in the Savoy Theatre, Uelegales from eighty-live of the constituencies in a n d about London will form the andienie, and admittance will be by ticket. Four of the most skilled critics of the Act in the House of Commons will speakMr. 11. W. Forsler, M . P . (who will be in the chair), Mr, L. Worthington l^vans, M , P . , Mr. f,. S. Amery, M .

Women speidicrs and women's associations, too, are asked to help in the campaign. So are friendly society members who desire amendment of the Act, and indeed everybody who is dissatiyhed with the scheme will be welcomed, BUY A STAMP AND JOIN THE LEAGUE The League has adopted a remarkable method for attracting supporters and registering them aa m e m b e r s ^ t h e sale of an " Amend the A c t " stamp. This will be sold at a penny. T h e stanip is a large one with an allegorical design, printed in brown, Everyone who wishes t see the Act amended, it i'i hoped, will btiy one or a larger number. Foims will be sent out with the stimips, and cacfi of these forms has twelve squares upon which the stamps are to be stuck, and there is a place for the name anti atUlress of the buyer opposite each square. Every buyer of a penny .stamp becomes a member of'the Leiigiie, and, while the pennies go ti> swell the funds of the Leag'ue, the n.imes and addresses form a register of the members of the organisation. The stamp idea is taken in a spirit of audacity from Mr. Lloyd Ceorge's own scheme. ' Hut," the officials say, " wdth this dilferen{e. It is better to lick a stamp once to help in getting the insiir. ance you want than to lick stamps for years in paying for what you don't want." The League asks all the men and women whr worked for The Daily Mail and The Daily Mirror campaign, wliich was the beginning of unified action against the Act's inctiualities and blunders, to help it with the stanip scheme--to sell the stamps and get on to the forms the names and addresses of the mistresses and servants and others who signed the petition forms of the fnsurance Tax Protest League, All who wdl assist the Amend the A d T,cague in any way should write to-day to the Secretary, St. Stephen's House, Westminster.

Suffolk Residents Protest Against Menace of a River.


Why Should Not Britain Insist on Use of Engines?

,H*^. A (From Our- Special Cori-espondent.) I P S W I C H , April 14.What are Imowu throughout this part of Suffolk as the " Orwell o d o u r s " are causing acute friction between Ipswich Town Council and the Uural District Councils of Samford and Woodbridgc. T h e " plague " cases twO years ago occurred in the " Samford H u n d r e d . " Dr. H . Paterson Sleigh, medical oJiicer_ of health to the Samford Council, whom I visited last evening at his residence, JJenmaik House, Holbrook, showed me his printed annual report, just submitted to the Saraiord Council, and said that he regarded the matter as of urgent importance, H e r e are the salient statements in that report ' Tho smellone could iustfiably use a stroneer expreeBionfi-oni the River Orwell was, if possiblfl, worse than ill previous years, and , . . nothina has fio tax been done to reniBtly tile nuiaance, . , . In my opinion i^eilain illnusses can be tinted to ihe most oltensivo odours from tho EiiPr Orwell, iind it IS a continual menace to the health of tho neiBhboui*hood. D r . Sleigh added that owing to his ofTicial posl. tion and the fact of his reijorl being now under consideration he could not discuss the " certain i l l n e s s e s " referred to. Dr. William Carey, of Holbrook, told me that although the death rate of the Saml'ord H u n d r e d had continued lowj and last year was, in fact, only 11,1 per 1,000, against 11.8 in the previoiij year, there was a great distinction between illhealth and mortality. HAPPy ONE WHO CANNOT SHELL. " Sore throats and tonsilitis are very prevalent, especially in the summcr-lirae," Jie said, " and the foul odours which are brought even us far at Holbrook when the wind is in the nonh-east are certainly unhealthy and rcstionsiblc fur predisposing people to serious illness." Councillor Marjoram, of Holbroolt, told me that" the smells borne on the dry north-easterly winds, very frequent on this coast, were " such as yoti could cut with a knife." But the inhiibitaats of tlic riparian villages of Woolverstone, Frcston and Whcrslead, which are nearest the outlall, are the worst sufferers. Mr. William J'^dgcll, of Freston Hill, said to nie : " A l l the adult inhabit;nUs of these three villages with four exceptitms, signed a iirutest addressed to the Samford Council demanding ihe inlerfercnco of the Local Government Boaid, which has now taken the matter up, " Of the four non-sij;natories one said he had smelt worse smells in Const;intinople; another that he did not mind smells; the Ihird, a lady, that bad smells and good smells were all alike td her, for she could not smell at alland llie Jourtli was abroad at the time, COST OF IMPBOVEMENTS. " Since the eases of plague at Freston two years ago JO,000 rats have been killed in this Orwell Peninsula, nnd a lewanl of 2d. paid for each tail produced. But while these medi;cval methods continue we are sfill risking the gravest perils. " W e are determined to avert, if jinssible, a recurrence this summer of the pingue of filth-bearing fliesj gnats and mosquitoes wliieii last summer contaminated our food and llireatcned us with pestilence. " M a n y of ihe details are loo repellent to be described. The water in the Orwell estuary is not lit for bathing. When the wind is scutlierly we do not suffer so much, but north-easterly winds make us literally sick. " T h e meilicirl officer of the Fast Suffolk County Council, Dr, Stewart, has reported in the strongest possible terms upon the condition of things. It may cost the Ipswich Town Council .:S!00,000 to establish a proper system, but it absolutely must be done Shotley and its naval barracks and Harwich Harbour are only about six miles in a straight line south-east of the outfall, and this week scientific experts are to make a thorough examirnuion of the grievances of those who complain of the Orwell smells.


Tlie Daily Mirror^s appeal on behalf of the unhappy little pit ponies and the story of their poor, blind, stunted little lives have already iiToused widespread interest. Letters pour in by every post, the writers assuri n g us of their heartiest support and asking to be allowed to help in any way they can. I'ublic interest, for the lime being, is the only means by which anything can be done in the end ior the four-footed slaves of the coal mine. Once jublic interest is genuinely arOused, a merciful egislation must follow. The Daily Mirror will do everything in its power to arouse that interest, which lias k i n dormant for so iong because so little has been known about the wretched little workers who toil so unceasingly under the most hopeless, terrible conditions m the black depths of the pit until a merciful death releases them.


On Saturday The Daily Mirror askedand many of its readers asked, toowhy it was in this enlightened age of inventions and reforms that no mechanical contrivance had ever been devised or utilised for hauling the coal trucks about (he dark corridors underground, The question needs to be emphasised. For England, for some extraordinary reason, is one of the few countries where mechanical traction does not exist. The law rigorously forbids the use of electricity or pefiol in mines. But why? If their use, with the proper care and precaution, is allowed in the mines abroad, why should they be utilised here ? ^'^ _ " Our petrol locomotives," said the representative of the Otto Internal Combustion Locomotives, " h a v e been working for twelve years now day and night m Germany, and I have not heard of any accident. " T h e machines are now being satisfactorily worked m 800 coal mines in different parts of the wor-id. T h e Prussian (Jovernment have 150 consisnlly employed, and altogether we have 1,047 petrol locomotives in use in mines." The constant employment of petrol-driven locomotives in coal mines without aci:i<lent seems to furnish an uriauswefable argument for their univerai use. MACBINE SAVES SIX PONIES. Yet practically the only petrol-drlven machine In coal mines m England is iit the Barton Mines in Nottmghamshire, where the one machine takes (he p];,-e of six pit ponies, who were happily released. This machine, whi^h replaced the six ponies costing 60s. a week in fodder alone, costs for the weekly consumption of petrol barely 5s. 8d. So that, all humane considerations set aside, the mechanical substitute is a big saving commercially. Its presence is allowed at Barton as the mine "is B coinparalively shallow one. The petrol locomotive which is used deep down in the German mines is capable of hauling a gross load of about twenty-three tons. _ It is rated at 8-h.p., and works on a 2ft. gauge line. Much thought has been given to its design, one matter of vital importance being the elimination of danger from explosion. Klectric ignitionforbidden hereis used, and any escape there may be is rendered harmless before if reaches the outer atmosphere by having to pass through a great number of filters."

French Premier's Tribute to King Edward How "The Daily Mirror*' Milk Fund Will at Cannes Memorial Ceremony. Continue to Help Starving Babies.
W e have received many letters cordially endorsing the suggestion that The Daily Mirror milk fund should be placed on a permanent basis. So great has been the success of the fund that distributing centres have been opened in no fewer than twelve cities and towns, namely, London, Manchester, Glasgow, Grimsby, Nottingham, Leicester, Middlesbrough, Heading, Bristol, Swansea, Feeds and Bradlord, and special grants, are also being made in other districts The work of distributing milk is being continued daily by Salvation Army officers, As soon as this temporary and widespread destitution is ended by a general resumpiion of work we hope to announce the scheme by which The Daily Mirror fund will be taken over by an influential committee and applied to the relief of babies aiid motliers in temporary need owing to the unemployment, through no fault of their own, of the heads of families.

The " E n t e n t e C^ordiale " fetes were continued at Cannes on Saturday, when a monument of the late L i n g , which faces the sea and represents his Majesty as a yachtsmanj was unveiled at three o'clock. Sir F . Bertie, the British Ambassador, thanked Cannes for its tribute of gratitude to K i n g Edward, Speaking of the late King, he said : ^ " I t is thanks to the different visits'the K i n g made to various parts of France, before his coming to the throne, that his Majesty was able personally to be acquainted with the sentiments of the French people and to appreciate the opportunity of establishing between the two neighbouring countries relations of true and cordial friendship."

" A t the opening of his too short reign, this great King had said to his Privy Council; ' A s long as I have a breath of hfe left in me I will work for the well-being of my people.' " In working for the good of his people he laboured for general peace, for civilisation and the progress of humanity, and when at the point of death, he murmured, ' T have tried to do my duty,' he was wrong in being too modest and too diffident, and in letting it be understood that while he was sure of having done his utmost, he was less certain of having achieved his object. " H e tried to do his duty and he completely succeeded. H a p p y , messieurs, are the Chiefs of State and citizens whose eulogy is couched in these simple words."


Patsy, the pit pony which The Daily Mirror has brought to London from a Northumberland pit for a holiday, was given a complete rest during the week-end. He was lalher excited after his walk through London on Priday-~his first walk in the light of day for over six yearsand so he was left quietly in his comfortable stall. His spirits remain at the very tip-top, and the change in his appearance and demeanour is unmistakable. It is wonderfully ap|iarcnt. H i s eyes are gradually losing the wild, hunted look they bore when he was first brought up from the depths of gloom at the Newcastle pit, Mr. !". A. Cox, the secretary of the Equine Defence League, has worked hard to alleviate ihe sufferings of the unhappy little slaves of the mine. Mr. C~ox has seen the ponies driven down just fifter they have been brought in from the wide, expansive freedom of the healher and the turf. This is how he describes the fate of such a one : " H e stood there in the churned mud of the colliery . . . and his beautiful brown eyes fixed on me jiafheiicallya glance of infinite reproach, " H e was only a pit pony going down the shaft. And he went. A little trouble at first, but pit boys have methods of their own for overcoming these little difficulties, and he wentdown. " H o you know to what? T o a life and labour wliich, at its best, would be fearful to contemplate. " Kever again will he behold a green meadow, or champ the sweet, fresh grass. No more for him a Kcamyiering gallop, or a frolicsome roll. 'What left at the top was a ponywhat arrived at the bottom was a machine to be energised by peculiar methods. " T o this he liad gonedown.

"MacCallum More" Who Toured the Women Now Wearing Gowns Designed Ought Daughter's Life To Be Saved Country Is Arrested in London. on Lines of Clerical Garments. Before A Son's?
A young man, believed to be Douglas Gray ("MacCallum M o r e " ) , wdiose adventures have gained for Kim the name of the " Motoring L a i r d , " was arrested in Drury-lane, London, on Saturday night, and will be taken to-day to Aberdeen, where, it is stated, a charge will be preferred against him. MacCallum More is the Gaelic name of the head of the Clan Campbell, the D u k e of Argyll, and Gray, who used it, is said to have visited several places in the north of Scotland and to have described himself as a " laird," Afterwards he visited Aberdeen, Manchester, London, Weybridge, Ashtead, Portsmouth and Paris. At Inverness he donned motoring attire and went on a midnight motor-car ride to Perth. Then he turned up at Manchester, and he was next heard of at Twickenham (Middlesex), where he is said to have hired a ear, engaged a chauffeur, and to have driven to Bournemouth and Portsmouth, T h e Twickenham chauffeur, who drove him for two days, gave the following diary of the trip ; First Day,First to "\Voyl)iidg.,r-wliere " Mac Call um More" eatlecl upon a, Irleiid at the Brooklands flying grounii, ami then on to a large house near by. Alterwards to Aslistead, "urrey, whore petrol was hougkt, exchanging cheque for 123. uiveii in payment. In this town " Mao(.!alUim More " .visited two large houses, at the Kecond ot v<"hicli he stayed Irom louc in the aftf'rnoon till nine at niEht, On to Portsmouth, Second Day.A rrival -aA, the Queen's Hotd, Soiitheea, at two in fhi; morning, " Mr, More " risked lor one of the best rooms in the hotel. Visits lo a tailoi' where an overcoat was purcha-scd and chequB chaiigea for .1, and to IVIiiliard'a garage, wlieie a ohec|.ue tor A'i was cashed. Another adventure was tolil by the manager of the H a n d and Spear Hotel, Weybridge: Ha came la a taslcab ]nred from the Eoya! Expresii Motor Company. With hini wa-g a good-looking girl. Tiie man ivhcim I knew as Douglas Gray, and who liad learned to liy at Brooklands. ordered three luncheons. Alter luneheon ho left the tiirl, eaying ho wanted to gee a fviend on the racing trai^k. The girl waited and waited, but Gray never reappeared, and at ten o'clock at nisht sho went back to town in the tajcicab. At Ashtead the " laird " was entertained at one of the largest houses. Dress designed from clerical garments is again to be seen in London. Women, in spite of the new fanciful spring modes of roses and taffetas, picturesque shepherdess dresses, quaint and essentially feminine draped gowns and frillies of all descriptions, are adopting severe frocks designed from ecclesiastical garments. The surplice gown is one of the new models now being shown in London which is a further development of clerical dress for women which started with the stole which became and remains a fashionable part of woman's toilette, Following this, the perfectly plain cassock frock a feature of the tube modeswith its line from chin to h e m of the garment of buttons, was introduced, The " little c u r a t e " costumes, half a do/.en of which were designed and made for Miss Lily Elsie's wedding, have been adopted by Parislennes and EnjjlisJiwomen and are now in great vogue. T h e surplice frock was seen on Saturday by The Daily Mirror. It is a new form of the black and white magpie modes which are lasting so long. T h e surplice is suggested by a white silk loose arment falling to the knees, which is worn over a lack narrow gown. T h e sleeves, however, have not the full effect at present of the ecclesiastical surplice. Some of the snrplice frocks have a c^ord girdle round the waist tied at the front, and wdth long tassels falling- to the knees. Sixteen guineas is the price asked for one gown of this description, it was stated at a well-known London establishment.


Imagine yourself a faiher taking four of youf children, three boys and a girl, out for a row oa a lake, Suddenly the boat capsizes. All are thrown into the water. Von are a good swimmer and tho shore is fifty j'ards or more away. Your daughter is your favourite child, but the lives of the boys are equally important. Only one child can be taken to thy shore at a lime, Whom would yon saveyour daughter or ono of your sons? Which is the right choice? This was the terrible problem lliat confronted a Swiss father who has just met with a tragic boating accident on I,akc Constance, Accoinpanied by his brother and four childrenthree boys and a girl, he had gone for a row ori the lake when a storm overtook Ihcm and the boat capsized. CUOSE THE DAUGHTER, The father had barely a second in which to uiitkg his choice. Then he chose the girl, his favouiite, and took her Lo shore. Returning at once, h(> found his three boys had disappeared. Hi3 brother managed to get to shore. All the boys were drowned, and their bodies have not yet been recovered. Some interesting opinions Iiavc been obtained from various sources by The Daily Afirror as to what should be {lone uniler similar circumstances. " I do not think one woidd consider the moral aspect of the question in such a terrible moment, said the Pev. Arthur J. Waldrou, vicur of Urixton. " I t is very human that a father should attempt first to save his favourite child. I think I woiiki have done the same as the Swiss fatlier, but it il imiiossible to say exactly what one would d o , " The Rev, B. Bourchier, a cousin <d the well* known actor, gave his opinion on behalf of th9 sons, '' I think I would have saved one (d tlie sons," h e said, " as his life is a decided asset to the country.' OWLY ONE TBING 1 0 BE DONE. " T h e ordirary maxim of chivalry-that of sav ing the women firstsliould be adhered to in sucll a crisis," said the llev. C. Silvester H o m e , M . l ' . " S a v e the girlslic is die weakest. The boya have a better chance ot s^Ming thcmaclvcs." " A l l my instincts would be to save ihe girl, not because she was my favourite child, but because of her sex," was Mr. A. W. Carnage's opinion. " I can Bee no problem at all," said anuther business man. " T h e r e is only one answer--thi; girl must be saved. " It ;s but another form of that so-called problem of mother and child- -which, i( one musi liic, is to be sacrificed? And there is ncser any ques* tion as to the mother's prior claim to live. " The child can be reproduced - t h e mother can* not. And in such a crisis as yours the daughter stands in the position, of the mother. She has tha first right." A well-known long disEance swimmer considered that choice at such a moment wovdd be impossible. THE FIRST-BORN'S CLAIM. " I should save the first child I put my hands on," he said, " I would not reason as to which should be saved f^irst. " W i t h that life I should .^wim to the shore, ancl trust to God that I might be able to save the others," Mr. Tom Gallon, ihe weil-known novelist, offered quite a different view.. " It should be a fatliet's duty to save the eldest child because, as a general rule, in my opinion, tha first-horn is the best, both physically and mentally," he s;ddi " But in such a crisis one's actions are likely to be diametrically opposed to one's views. T h e impulse in such a moment of agony would be to save the weakest, and the weakest is usually the favourite.'' " I consider the Swiss father sluuild have saved one of the b o y s , " was the ciunmcnl of a business woman, " ' H i s life is of move v;due than that of the girls, Personal feelings should nut have entered uito the matter at all,"


3FT. 8IN. I I I O H .

Mr. A. Rurfic, who was De Wet's cliief boy scout during the South AtrnJan war, and afterwards town clerk of Zastron, Orange River Colony, has just arrived in England for the first time, filled with two great ambitions. H e wants to shake the hand of King George, whom he admires above all' other living men, and to marry a beautiful Juiglishwoman, " d i v i n e l y tall and most divinely f a i r , " and " w i t h lots of money." Ilis eventful career has been slightly handicapped by the fact that he ceased to grow any taller when he was six years old, and though now hearly Iwenlv-rivefor he was born on July 27, 1887-he is only 3ft. 8in. high, and weighs only fct. 21b. Some of his exploits as a hoy scout he narrated yesterday to The Dally Mirror, and it is quite evident that De Wet's exlraonlLnary success inevading pursuit was not a little due to the youngster's zeal and cunning, " I used to make mys.elf ksok about eight instead of fourteen," he said, " aiu! then ride tov.-ards the English troops on my little pony, about as big as one of your pit ponies. STRATEGIC IN WAR. " When T got near I wouhi pretend the pony had bolted and run him into a biisli. Soldiers came and helped me out and took me to the officers. Tliey would give me dainties and cigarettes to smoke, I would pretend to be sick, and, when, f had seen all I wanted to, would cry out, ' 1 want to go honity to my marnmy,' " T h e n I would get to my pony, spring on his back, g ". him a smatdc on the foreliead, and go off at a ga. , ]). If f was pursued I wouhi let him go free, ani^ run. No soldier on horseback or afoot could catch me ,.:e f got among ihe rocks. " M y falh Was De Wet's cliief scout, and taught mc the art. H e would come in tired out after riding for days and nights, and s a y : ' Burtie, I can't do any m o r e ; you take a turn.' I worked wdth niv head in those diiys, I tell you, as well as my little body. " General E u l l e r ' s men once chafed me eight miles in vain. Another time I was captured, near the end of the war, but escaped. I stil] Wear this tic-pin with the Orange f r e e Si ate flag and motto on it, but I am a loyal liritisher now. I have dropped my Boer name, Jkirgerl Smit, and use my mother's pet name for mo, IJurlie, as a surname. T h e ' a ' is just an initial, and means ' A n y t h i n g . ' " My molhcr died in a concentration camp. She was a hirge woman. I want to marry someone like her. My father, uncles and three brothers are al! over Gfl. Idgh. T have always been used to being among big people. If I see a litlle man quarrelling with a big one 1 want to push him aside and rht the big man myself. IISAPPOIINTED IN lOVE. ' f spen. .ny first day in London at the Tower, the whole day. It was glorious. But I felt very lonely. ]'eople followed me a b o u t ; but you feel more lonely than ever when people watch you and don't speak to you. All my chumi are very big men, "After the war T went to school and college till I was twenty. Then I became town clerk of ?.astron. Alter that I was eighteen months in the Transvaal Civil .Service, I fell in love, but it was very disappointing. Now I want to get married to a nice English girl, 'perhaps the love wdll come afterwards, Btit she must have money. I am not a flirt, I do want someone to love me. Some day I shall see the King and shall ask him to shake hiuids with me, and I think he will. " I f you want to see life go to Jo'biirgv That's the place, Bnluwaj-o's not bad. I was there when Sam Lewis was tried for killing a bad nigger, and the people would not let him be punished, I speak German, Basuto, Kaffir and High Dutch, besides the Taal and EnE^lish. " I was taught horse-breaking when I was seven vears old, and can ride anything, I'm.a gooii shot, My head went on growing when my body stopped, and my hats are men's %\-i.<t--^\. T h e clothes I am wearing I bad made in Ijondon and sent out to South Africa, Our tailors there are not up to much." All the little gentleman's clothes are in the height of fashion and perfectly made. His gloves are a child's. He is well-proportioned and muscnlar. " I have never had an illness," he said. " M y head's large for my body, but not ugly, is it? I've a man's brains and a man's heart, with a cl-iki's b o d y ^ o r my body is no bigger than a child's, I should say. A SCOUT IN SPATS. " I don't want to marry a tiny woman. They don't interest me in the least. If I marry anybodyit must be a woman T can look up to, and she will find me a very good husband." H e sighed and imituted the famous Kaffir click, which is a feature of the Kaffir language. His beautiful, grey eyes glowed, " J am something of a poet,'" he said wistfully. Mr. Burtie always travels alone, and is perfectly self-possessed and highly intelligent. T o see him strolling on the pavement with his midget cane and apats, totally indifferent to the stares and comments of passers-by, is an education in deportment. " I have two large cups of tea for breakfast and two good meals a d a y , " he said on parting, " a n d I iike my pipe better than any cigarettes or Cigars. Nobody knows why I'm so small."

H E Newmarket racing season comniences to-morrow, but the Craven Hcetinjf, except to the very keenest racegoers, is not !i very interesting one. There will, however, be one or two parties in the district, and good racin.g is anticipated. T h e meeting lasts for three days. The First Spring Meeting', which commences a fortnight later, is a far more iuipcn'tant alTair, and in all probLd>ilily will be atteiideil by (he K m g .

^^usic lovers are lookiiif; forward to the opening of Coveiit (larden Opera season, which commences on Saturday ne.\t, and " Carmeii " has been selected, with a singer new to this coimtry appearing in the title role. As most people will i)y then h a \ e returned from the E.aster holiday-making, a large and fashionable audience is expected.





N E of the little ironies of the recent coal strike is the fact that, while it was supposed To call the anxious attention of the community to the woes of the miners and the grinvous case of those who work by pcrpcltial night, it succeeded in producing sympathy for the men's servants, more than for the men themselves for the blindly plodding pit-pony whose grievance no miner intended to put before the public. Before the public it nndoulitedly is, however, at the moment: t h a t is sufficiently clear from the letters we receive and from the am.ount of sympathy shown for our typical pit-pony. Patsy, rescued, for the purpose of pleading his comrades' ease, from the bowels of the earth. Patsy has work of a new kind before him. Henceforward his part is to be propagandist -and to make the selfish outer world aware ithat he and his kind, wlio now toil as slaves in darkness, are in no way removed, by constitution or character, from other ponies. The a n c ' m t sage thought there were such things as slave-souls, invariably fixed in the servile bodi'^^ ^--at he saw wearily tilling the fields, t o i l i n g ' a l o n g roads, emerging at intervals. froiT) the silver-mines and blinking half-heartedly at the sunlight. It was not so.' A new doctrine came soon to tell the world that in the servile body a free soul, struggling for expression, l u r k s ; which in slow time turned the conscience of men against slavery. W e fancy that Patsy's mission is to convince the v.-orld, by his demeanour in the breath of fresh freedom come to him, that ponies too were artificially made slaves, not naturally born to be so, and that there is no pony but has in him the instinct for light and air which never dies out in liim even after years of a grim subsistence underground. Patsy would persuade us pathetically that there is no subterranean soul in ponies.

l^'rom a social jKjint of view the most interesting meeting ot the week is the Household Brigade

Sir Richard Sutton, who is in the 1st Life Guards, attains his majority on tho 2(3th of this nionlh, and in honour of the event two days' festivities will take place at IJenham Valance,, near Newbury.

I think that man has hid work and responsibility at the ofTiee, and correspondingly woman has Iters at home. But to ray that " hi* children entail additional burdens and responsibilities corresponding to hev tvavai! and maternal care " is absurd. The woman has (he extra responsibilities as nuicli as the man, and added to this all tliat she has to endure to bring his children into the world for him. Any nice-minded man who iove.s his wife in the right way will fee! that nothing he can do for her will be too much to repay her for this sacrifice. Provided that a woman has enough for aetua! expenses she will not wish to be paid wages as a servant if she receives the love and consideration which sha

In this country ponies are condemned to live an unnatural and terrible existence in coal mines, from which they only emerge when too old for work. I n other countries this hrutal system does not exist, completely safe petrol-driven engines being employed. There is no reason why these or similar engines should not be employed in British pits and the use of animals forbidden by law.

The Story of an Ugly Woman. By GERTRUDE PART II.

Pilgrim's Progress. CHAPTER II,
Tilt; uuion \nm^ like a lump over Llie httle hill town". It was not a yellow luoon, like that on the Mc(iiievr,nic;ui, but u steely moon, whose white beams tut through tlie narrow, ilark streets like knives, (is r;uli!ince was sharp, and the night air was sharp instead of laiigotuou.s, and it seemed to Ivlary that it alTocLed the intellect rather than tlie heart. She found altogether that Italy stimulated her brain and made her think. There must be the ceho ot so many epoch-miiking Ihougiits lying in the mouldered hearts of her buried sons. Tanner \^'alked silently beside lier. 'iliey Inrd no difficulty in finding' the jiiazza where the festa was beijig held, for streams of people were fioing in tlie same direetioii, and the li'.ely chatter of the soft so<thorn toii{;ues resounded in the sharp, quiet air. The i)eople ,still kept the characteristics of a hill race ; the men were lithe aild ^hni and active, and, the \^omcn had the broad, useful appearance of iho-,e accustomed to carry burdens. The men wore the cusioniarj' inartistic broadcloth of gala days, and the women had black shawls round their shoulders alter the Venetian style. But there was none ol tht; Venetian splendour of colour about the iittle town. It was dark and foibiddinj; all through, and its people were utilitarian, their object in lite being to wrest a living out of a somewhat unfriendly soil. '1 he pia;^/.a was a small one, and was shadowed, as was all the rest of the town, by enormous buitding.i, so solid that they looked as if they must have been reared by giants. It opened suddenly out of a street llial was little more than an alley, and therefore ,ii,avi: an impression of space. The illLiniinalions consisted of strings of Chinese lanterns ahing from slender irim posts. The bandstand in Ihe centre was composed of a few deal benches ; the music-stands were lit by candles stuck in htinp cylinders, it was altogclher most primitive. i h e people were circulating round and round in a happy, merry throng. On one side of the pcpiare was an arcade, beitiod "which were more burrows that passed as shops, and in this arcade were set tables bcUniging to three separate cafes, whiih were dointi a roaring trnde. It was very insuffitientiy lit by evil-smelling lamps. As Mary and Tanner entered the pia;^za there was a great clapping of hand.s, and on looking to see the oatrse they saw that some people were standing on a wide balcony of what was evidenMy some municipal building- above the centre of the arcade. There were three or four men and two women in light clothes and large black hats. Evidently they had something to do with the rifle club trophy-, in honour of which the festa was being held. 'I'hey disappeared from the l)alcony, and (he, clapping died (iown. Mary turned to Tanner. I t ' s quaint, is it n o t ? " she asked. " Yes," he answered, in his direct way. " Do tliey clap instead of c h e e r i n g ? " He was never afraid of asking questions. ^'Ves." ' Oh, I sec ! " " S h a l l we sit d o w n ? " Mary went on. " W e ' l l try and find a table. I should like to stay out. It's very interesting." They maiie their way under the arcade. There were very few of llie little irtm tables "vacant, but Tanner, with his usual C|uiet persistence, managed to find one. The iron ciiairs were exceedingly itncomfonable, and when she did get a seat Mary was squee ;ed in between a crowd of chattering people vvhos' curious scrutiny she foun'd it hard to bear. Neve.i' had her infirmity been brought.' ome to her quite so plainlv. 1 taliaus are intensely, "'iperstilious, and before she pulled down her veil with a qiuck movement she saw a swarLliy fellow hohl up two fingers of his left hand with some muttered imprecation, which she supposed to be a c h a i m against the evil eye. The band struck up. It was a detestable cotnbination of "worn-out inslrumcnls, and it played ancient operatic airs devoid of the slightest nrtistie merit. Taiuier, wdio was innately musical, moved restlessly in his chair. A waiter approachcfi, and Slary told liim lo order coffee for her and whatever he wanted for himself. He chose coffee, too. She had found during their recent wanderings that neither food nor drink m a d e the slightest ap])eal lo him. I!e could go for hours without either and r>ot show the slightest signs of fatigue. As this was also a charactcristie of hers, it made another link between tkem, and several tinier they had exchanged smiles over the acute misery of Kosa, deprived of a meal by the exigencies of tlio road. Through ten minutes of braying horror they sat silent. Then tlte band stopped and the people clapped. It sounded like the artillery in the crisp, quiet air, " H o w tiiCy like i t ! " said Mary, " I s n ' t it e x t r a o r d i n a r y ? " Somehow she wa.s always sure of his understaniling. Trom the first moment she had set her helplessly sliding feet upon the skating-rink he had alv/ays understood. "The Italii^ns are the most inartistic people in the .world," she went on, Tanner, as usual, hit the nai! directly on the head. " I suppose they're fed wx* with a r t , " he said. " I t ' s like living in a candy store. You don't want lo eat Oandy." Mary laughed. l i e always had the faculty of amusing her, as well as interesting her, a combination highly satisfactory and very rare. She had heard the day be''ore from the manager Of the works at Gatesboroiigli about the success of (TraOElation dramatic, and all other liahts eecuted. popyrlsht. U.S.A., 1913,)

" The foundations of the national glory are set in the Homes of the People. "--l^i^G GEORGE V.



the nev/ American smelting plant. She mentioned the 'act to Tanner, " T h a t was a fine bit of machinery," lie said, the warm note in his voice. " Y o u ' d like Gatesborough, I think," she said


" I ' m sure I should. If you'll excuse my saying so," he went on, ' I can't think why you clon't live there;" Mary started. It was a simple statement of opinion. She did not know wdiy it sliould affect her as it did. " Ilive in Gatesborougli! Well, I've got a house near there, you know." " But you don't live there ! " " Ko. It's very dull, ugly country. There's nothing to d o . " A little smiie played about the young man's clean-cut lips. " W hat do you mean? " she asked. " Oh, nothing that I could say," " Y o u Jcnow that I like you lo say to me e.\actly what you.think. "What made you s m i l e ? " " T h e idea that you S,aid there was nothing In do at Gafesborough," he answered. " W e l l , there isn't! At least, notliing that I can .see. But I know that ; o u can see a lot. Tell me ! " " I t isn't for me to do that," " But if I ask you to? " " Oh, welWdo you reallv mean it? " "Yes." " I was only thinking of al! the chances you have of learning all about one of the most wonderful industries in the world," " But I cotildn't understand it," she interrupted. " ^Vhy not? ^^ c can understand anything if we set ourselves to. Or, at least, we can tiy t o . " " W h a t good would it do m e ? " " I t would be some knowledge gained. Surely all knowdedge is worth h.aving." " Yes, I suppose so. I kr,ow nothing whatever about the works. They only come to me when some important point has to be settled.'^ " Andexcuse me for putting it like this - d o you feel capable of settling important p o i n t s ? " Mary looked at him squarely. " It's only points of managementthat's all. For instance, when the men threalened to strike iasL the rink?-because we had lo split a contract with anotlier firmthen I had to .settle what should be done." Again the faint smile flickereil on Tanner's lips. "A'cs, I remember. And you settled that they should strike," " Of course, W e had to fulfil the contract anyhow. But they didn't strilie. But tell me wdiat you mean? " " I ' m afraid it wouldn't .sound polite." " Y o u know I expect the Iruth from \ o u . " " W e l l , it seems to me that it would be better for you and better for your workpeople if you knew something abotit them. Forgive the way I put it-"V rds aren't much in my line, but it seems to me th, you lead a lazy life, considering all the opportuni ;s you have of learning yourself and helping other people. Ail these men wlio work for y o u ^ d o you kiiOAV anything about t h e m ? " " No. Of course, I know the heads of departments." " Y e s , but the menthe men wdio do the work." " N o , " said Mary slowly. " T h e r e are so many of them." " I know. But they make your living for vou." " That's true." " A n d you know nothing about them, about the way they live, about their homes and their wives and their children, and their pleasures and their sorrows." Mary felt a sudden tightening in her throat. The gay and fascinating scene around her faded, and the gloom of the old palaces, the chequerecl colour of the lanterns, the shifting mass of the people, the steely light of the moon, al! the glamour and the magic of Italy, wiih her modern emptiness and her fabled past. She saw instead the black town in the black country, and the flaring furnaces, and the half-naked men, and the orderly buildings wdiere the brain of the works was housed, and the rows of hideous little houses where the half-naked creatures disappeared to when they left their work, wdiere they became ordinary men. It was true, Had she ever thought of therii as men, as husbands and fathers, brothers and sons? Had she given a personal thought to their welfare, exce|)t to have gifts distributed at Christmas and lo receive gifts from them on certain occasions? Had she ever been into one of the hideous little houses? D'd the people even know her by ,sightthe people wiio, as Tanner had just told her. made her living for her, the sweating, half-clad men wdio gathered in her golden harvest? What did they not do for her? She looked across the table. Tanner was regarding her with deep seriousness in his steady eyes. " I'm afraid I have offended y o u , " he said, " N o , " she answered, " H u t you haveliurt me very mucli." " I'm sorry." " It'.s not your fault. You're right, I dare say. Only, nobody has ever spoken to me like that before." H i s face did not change, " P e r h a p s you've never spoken much (o anybody who belongs to the same class as the men who work for you," " T h a t ' s t r u e . " She looked profoundly s a d ; and, with his curious gift of understanding her, he s'"id ; " Please don't take it like that. I'm sure you've done all you could for t h e m , " " V o u don't mean t h a t ! " she said tjuickly. " Speak the truth to me ! " (Continued on fast 13,J

Southern Railway Stocks Resume Their Rise.
3, C O F T I I A L L B U I L D I N G S , E , C ,

The pace set in the Stock Exchange on Friday proved too rapid to Inst, and Saturday found markets much more subdued in tone. Important features were by no means lacking, but the bad ones unfortunately were quite as numerous as the jrood. Southern Railway stocks gave another display of buoyancy, and South-Eastern Deferred continued its sensational rise, but Americans reflected their overnight collapse in Wall Street with a further decline on this sidej and Canadian Pacifies, which have risen so hea\aly of late, were swallowed up in the reaction. The wild gamble in Marconis went merrily ahead, and the revival of activity in the Oil share market made further progress, but one or two of the other Industrial favourites were cnnght in a stream of week-end profit-taking realisations. Money moved freely m Lombard Street, biit there was more of it about, and call money was offered at 3 per cent. The charge for weekly fixtures, however, was maintained at SJ per cent, as advances for this period cover a number of heavy cash transactions, the probable elfect of which is difficult to gauge. The majority of discount houses adhered to S-^- per cent, as the minimum rale for three months' fine bills, but there were more buyers than before at 3 7-lG per cent. Politics as a market factor were disregarded by Consols, which readied the round 78 for casfi with a rise of a sixteenth, but Irish Land stock remained unmoved, SOUTH-EASTEBN DEFEHHED STllL RISES. Although activity in the main was conlined to the Southern Railway stocks, the Home Railway market as a whole was cheerful, and the recovery in quotations made further progress. The most active feature was South-Etistcrn Deferred, which closed with a gain of all but two points, not satisfied witli its sensational five-point j u m p of the previous day, Tittle Chathams scored the relatively large gain of 1|, and Chatham Second Preference was_ marked up three points further to 75. The Kentish Railway boomlet seems to have temporarily taken the wind from the sails of the Undergrounds, the only, active feature, of the group being Metropolitan, which rose 1^ to 67^. Dealers in the American market here were illdisposed to open fresh commitments after the sudden collapse of the market in Wall Street overnight, and prices closed much as they had opened, with falls ranging up to H in Louisvilles, Illinois, Southern Pacifies and Unions, BIG ENTHE BIOS SPURT. Canadian Pacifies were swallowed up in the American reaction and close(L.with a loss of nearly two points, and Mexican Rails relapsed rather sharply after their recent rise on the dividend. Entre Rio.s Ordinary stock, which jumped 24 to 85, were the good feature of the Foreign Railway market, while Antofagasta Deferred, which dropped three points to 1(}3, were the bad one. Foreign Government bonds maintained a dignified but unprofitable silence, The exiraordinary gamble in Mftrconis, which have risen 2 ^ during tlie past week, was continued iimid the usual wild excitement, and the price closed with a gain of 11-32 on the day at 91. The enthusiastic bulls which throng the market arc talking the shares to ten and even higher within the next few days, while the " t i p " is going round the House to buy Canadian Marconis again, ^ which, it is said, are ripe for another rise after their recent reaction. Hudson's Bays dropped a point of their previous day's sharp spurt, One of the market's weakest features was_ General Omnibus stock, which dropped four points on the question being raised as to whether the enormous rise in the price of the stock to over JJOO is justified by the position of the company. It is pointed out, amongst other things, that the growing competition has not yet had lime to prove its strength, but that it has made sufficient progress to indicate that the General may by no means have matters entirely its owy way. The exubcratice of the past few days brought sellers to the Rubber share market, which suddenly became dull in tone. THE OIL SHABE REVIVAt. Qtiite a busy morning was spent iii_ the Oil share market, where the recent activity in Shells and Egyptians now appears to have spread to the Maikop group as well. Anglo-Maikops and Black Seas were active, and Maikop Victorys further advanced to 3-16 premium on the cablegram reporting the strike of another oil horizon at depth. J'^gyptian Oil Trusts rose a further eighlh to il> and Ural Caspinns again advanced, while Shells were bid for freely after their relapse of the previous day.

Dealing in South Africans was restricted by the imraiaence of the settlement on the Paris Bourse which begins to-day, and the market was absolutely devoid of feature. I n the Rhodesian market Tanganyikas were offered on the official statement that the directors' report will not be issued until the end of this month, while Falcons derived no benefit from the statement that an excellent report from the p r o p e r t y . h a s been received frour Mr. Piper, who is understood to recommend the erection of the whole of the plant as speedily as possible for the treatment of 500 tons daily, T h a t gloomy cablegram from Mr. Piper published a few weeks ago will be fresh in the minds of every unfortunate shareholder in the Junibo Gold Mining Company, and little consolation is to be derived from Mr. P i p e r ' s full report, which is now to hand. Writing from the Jumbo Mine, he begins his letter in the following w o r d s : " I arrived here to-day and regret there is no good news io report in any p a r t of the mine, a n d a s prospecting is costing from 650 to 750 monthly I telephoned your local office to cable suggesting this should cease at the end of this month, by which time all theories brought forward by Mr. Jones should be fully proved, and to-day they look very hopeless." The stopes are coming np to expectations, and it is now considered that the mill can continue to run for about twelve months, the total available ore bein^ 29,000 tons. In his concluding remarks Mr. Piper saysi " P e r s o n a l l y , I can see no further hope for the mine in depth, therefore the policy is obviousnamely, to adopt the strictest economy in every department, I regret that certain repairs to the mill foundations are imperative, and these will be started in April, and done gradually, but you must expect a consequent smaller tonnage m i l l e d . " The J u m b o Gold Mining Company was formed nine years ago, but it has never paid a dividend. In 1910 the price of the company's shares reached 25s., but it is now grovelling in the depths at Is. Od. The company's last accounts showed a loss of ^12,849, Among West Africans Fanti Consols were bid for and rose threepence to H s . on the company's Nigerian tin interests, as shown in the directors' report just issued. The latest news of the Jemaa lode proved rather too vague to please the market, and Anglo-Continental shares dropped back to 6. CLOSING PRICES.

H e took it in his quiet, steady grasp, just as he h a d done when she had offered it to him in gratitude for saving her life. " You have taught me something," she said ; and then she added, with a little s m i l e ; " It seems to me I am always learning from y o u . " T h e band struck n p another decayed tune of Rossini's. Conversation became difiicuU through the braying of the instruments. Mary leaned back as far as she could in the hard, iron chair. It was to her in that moment a veritable stool of repentance. Tanner's words bad gone home. She felt a sudden uplifting of her being, a striving towards something more than the mere gr.atifica)io of her own selfish existence. What had she ever thought of before? H e r own'sorrows, her own trials, IJullard's desertion, the tragedy of

her maimed face ! W h a t did these things matter? What could they bring her but sorrow and bitterness? What was the reward of any purely selfish thing but emptiness and misery? Nobody had said thing.s like this to her before. Nobody had seen clearly enough or cared enough to point out her duty to her. Bullard had tried to rouse passion in her for his own ends. Peter Oilead would decree for her a life of calni domesticity, himself at the bead of it, administering her properties and her affairs for what he considered her good. It was left to this young man, who had passed most of his life among the most frivolous surroundings imaginable, to exhort her to do something, to live at least p a r t of her life lor the good of others, instead of entirely for her own pleasure and benefit, Again she looked at him across the table. H e was dce[) in thought, looking across the square with the concentrated gaze with which she had become so familiar on the rink. And once more a pang of disappointment smote her quite inconseqnently, because he v^as so utterly impersonal, and so very far away, (Tfi be 6fifinued.).

Wales Beaten at Cardiff in Last " Soccer" Game of the Season by 3 to 2,

I r e l a n d seci.ired a n a r r o w v i c t o r y o v e r W a l e s a t Cardiff o n S a t u r d a y i n t h e last A s s o c i a t i o n i n t e r n a t i o n a l g a m e o i t h e s e a s o n b y t h r e e g o a l s lo t w o . Contrary to exi)cctations, the match, which was the thirty-third of the series between the countries, did not attract an unusually large crowd to the Ninian Park enclosure, but the faiit that only al>out 8,000 .spectators were present was mainly accounted for by the great coal Btrike and restricted tr.iin services, none of tlie local railways runiiing excursions into the city. Local colour was given to the ovenfc by the inclusion in the Welsh side of several South Wales players, wlio were let in through various changes from ths, team originally selected. I n all, no fewer than five alterations weie found necessary. The split and calls upon players engaged in important League games compelled the visitors to rely alniOft entirely upon home players. The only aooro in the first half came to Wales, after thirty minutes' play. Tinker Davies beating Haniia with a beautiful low shot, It was left to the closing stages to provide what little sensation there was in the game, and the scorestwo for Wales and three for Ireland-were the results of brilliant individual skill rather than eombined action, Wales, who had the command of the game up to the interval, increased their lead after eifeht minutes' play from a floe centre by Meredith, which enabled Walter Davies to head through out of Ilanna's reach. This secxind reverse spurred the Irishmen on. and they came again with determined rushes, their efiOrts being crowned with success after repeated failures to break through the defence of Llow Davies, Russell and Evans, which was magnificent. McCamlless brought Evans full length in a desperate, but futile, effort to save. Within a few minutes of the restart Brennan, after Thompson had taken the ball to tho line and passed bade, drove into tho net at a terriiio pace, to st^re tho e(|Ualising goiil. The Welshmen pressed hard in the next ten minutes, and Meredith was freijuently prominent with brilliant rune. Indeed, the skill of the f;imous Welshman, in racing down the touchhne. was one of the features of the miuch, and it was certainly not duo to any slackness in attack on his part that Wales late in the game failed to get on level terms. For a time Wales pressed hotly, and Hanna was seen fisting and" clearing some splendid shot.s. In consequence of slight injuries to Meredith,, who twisted his wrist, and Tinker Davies, who collided with Brennan, the sting went out of the Welsh attack towards the end of tho game, and, exerting full pressure on the Welsh &oal McCandless .culminated a fierce attack by beating ICvan* after tho latter had thrice fisted out. This gave Ireland a wull-deserved victory by the odd goal in five, for, the Welshmen, though struggling gamely to tha end, failed to get on level terms.

Braxtid Went well enough for six turiongs to convnuo one that short cuts show him to best advantage, e.-.pecialiy on level and demanding courses. Cyrene was one of thu more coiis|nciious, but when J^ng Set came tiirough he had the game all bis own m the last quarter-mdc. Mcveutio <dii,.scd him home, and Eton Boy gained third place from f'rolestant Ikiy, It was a tuiendid perforni,.iice on the victor's part, ami fe-v men have made a more lucky deal t h a n Mr. S, U, Joel, who obt,inied Imig Set ,ifter his traiaut, Batho, had purchased him out of a selling' race for 500 guineas. His Majesty's colours were carried by Glinka in tho Foxliill Plate. This son of Missel Tiirush is softdiearted and shut up very duickly, after displaying some speed, and tho honours fell to Mr. O. E. Howard's Giant, a welb n,imr,l huge eolt bv William the 'Ihird-Alicla. Giant is trained by 8, Darling at iicckhmptoii, and a stable companion of Kngland ami .lingling Geordie, Jt should be said in patsing that not from Ibis quarter but froo( Koxiiill has sprung a notable chai.ipion during the past weok to challenge llie pretonsions of l/)niond and White Star for the classic races. The now-coniLr is Itall Cross, for whom Me. Bowcr-Isniay paid 1,900 guineas as a yearling. The colt, reoortcd t.> bo streets m front of Balbiair. so impressed the soerulative section as to be now backed at 10 to 1 for t'lie Derby, I underst,ind he will run in tlio Two 'I'housaiid Guineas, and theru we shall luue a still belter opportunitv uf seeing his merit tested. ):k>me of the very best judges are quite enthusiastic in praise of ILill Cro^s, and his credentials, approved oven at this stage, increases immcn.sely the geneiaL Interest in the Derbv. Meanwhile we hear authoritative statements that no horses could give more s.itisfaction than Lomond and White Star to tiieir respective trainers, W, T, Robinson has charge of Hall Css, and we not only know that he is in the forefront of his profession, but that he has already this ,seasoji put up a large nuniber of winners. That aeora is almost certain to be increajcd tills week at Newmarket. GREY FRIARS.


It fell to Ea,stern cluU^ to furnish the best results of the .y day in tho Scottish fague . ,.. eoiiipetition. The victories o( . Elearts and Raith Itove. .s^iiist Clyde and Falkirk particularly, as they wore gi d away from homo, were splendid performances, Raith Rovers miLst have surprised themselves by y/inning by three clear goals at Falkirk, It was nnfortunate for the losers that they had to play part of the first and all the second half without J\torrison, their centre-half-back, Celtic gave a delightful exhibition against Kilmarnoek, who were fortunate not to be beaten by more than two goals, Celts had a young pliiyer named Oikon, from Southampton, on trial. He is a Glasgow youth, and did very well. Kilmarnock had their new goalkeeper, iSlair, out, and he saved splendidly on many ooeasions. Queen's Park had a well-deserved win over St, Mirren. and those two now have an enual nambcT of points at the l>ottom of the list, ,an;l both have two matches U> play, In the Consolation Cup final, which was played on Kilmarnock's ground, Johnstone defeati]d GalsWn, who were making their second sueoe.ssivo apjjearance in the last stage of this conipetiti-m, Hibernian won the Eastern Shield by defeating St, Bernard's, and in the final of the Sti]:lingshiro Consolation Cup, Stanhousemuir and East Rtirliugshiro played a drawn game of one each.

Exciting Racing Over Olympic D i s t a n c e s Surrey Cup for F, Boor.
Tn view of the forthcoming Olympic Game, the South London Harriers,' at their annual spring meeting at Kennington Oval on Saturday, wisely ciianged from the u.sual Enellsh method, and fixed all their races by raetroK instead of yards. The solitary exception wa-s in the revived Surrey Cup ten miles bieycle ia(^e. The most untewortliy performance; of tho aftornoon was that of Boor in the Surrey Cup. He had a bat! spill about half-way, but though he lost 'Ome 200 yards ho remounted, caught up the field, and finally gained a brilliant victory. Ho was followed home by F. Jackson, of the Birchfield Harriers, and by W. T. Dunn, o the Polytechnic, Boor's time for the race was twenty-six minutes, quite good for a flat grass course. Hi should bo mentioned, ho^-ever, one or two of the crack riders were more unlucky than the winner, IL T. Johnson, C, A, Denny, and S, F. Bailey fell, aud Meredith was badly shut in in the last qnaiHn-, The sprint race of 100 metres was won iiy J, C. Gilbert, ot the Polytechnic, with nine yiirds start, in 11m. The 200 metres fell to S, Usher, of the Surrey A , C with four yards s t t in 22 3-5s. The 800 metres flat handicap was won by F H, Hulford. of the Surrey A.C, with twentyseven metres start, in Im, 57s. That for cyclists n\ cr tho same distance fell to J . Bywaters, of the Kentish Wheelers, with fifty-five metres start, in 65 l-Ss, til the 1,500 metric limited handicap B, Ives, of Queen's Park Harriers, won from a big field, being very leniently treated with a handicap of fifty metres. R. F, C. Yorke, of tho Surrev A,C one of the si-ratch men, mude a gallant fini!;h of it, but was beaten half a dozen yards in 4m. (i J-5s. Tho scratch man, C. N, Roedliouse, of the Blackheatli Harriers, fared no better in the 400 metres limited handicap than Vorko had done in the longer distance, E. B, Greer. South Ijsntlon Harriets, with twelve yards start, beating the "coming champion by half a yard in 49s. The open walk over 3,000 metres was won bv G, Gummings. Heme Hill Harriers, 130 metres start, in 12m, 51s. The long-distance event, an invitation handicap of 5,000 metres, was secured by It, J . Morfey, South I/indon Harriers, with a liberal allowance of 250 metres start, in 15m, S l-5s. As in the case of Secdhouse and Yorko. several ot the back-mark men ran exceedingly well, but they v/ere mostly rather hnrshly handicapped.

PROMOTION CONTEST. Saturday's matches in the Second Division left the qvi&stien of promotion as Open as ever, albeit Derby County sot over a stilt obstacle by beating the t'-osso at Leicester by 1 tc 0. i t was a hard game througliout, and it was perhaps a trifle lucky for Derby that Bloomer got the win" ^ D e r t T County have thrds matches still to play : away games at FuUiam and t^iimsby, and a horSe match at Derby against Gainsborough, Victories in all three would give them 55 points and tho championship, as well as ^"chelsJm'won by the only goal scored against Hnll City at Stamiord jiridge, but their superiority was so marked t h a t thev might have scored half a dozen times a less stubborn defence. II Burnley, who were without a inatoL' on Saturday, win their remaining matches and Chelseff-arc also snecessEul, goal average will come into the Question, and in this department tlie Lancashire side have a big advantage. Both clubs ran reach 54 pointd, as a ''"chehea''s three outstanding ginnes are against Bradford and Blaokpool at Stamford Bridge, and a visit to B^rnslev on the last Saturday of the season, Burnley should beat Ruddersneld at Turt M,r, and it looks as if Chelsea s only chance ot pvoniotum is for Burnley to be defeated a t Bv boating Lnfon by three goals to nil at Luton, Swindon (onsidera>ily i-nproved tht^ir chances of retviining the Southern League championship. They are still fourth on the iJble but with three matches m hand of Queens Park Itaiifers they Ciin secure a possible 55 po;at.s, against the T.ondoners" 54. , , , , The Rangers were a trifle lucky to avoid do eat a .

The Belf^ist Ci(v Cup mhtch bctiveen f:)istillerr and Cliftonvil'e, at Cliftonvillo, "Relfast. proved very interesting and exciting, although the result laul little bearing on thf. ehiunpioushio. Play was particularly keen and evenly baianceii, and it was almost the interval befoi-e Oraig scored the lirst goal ot the malcb for CliftonviUe, with a terrific oblioue shot. After .^uncs!ey had tailed with a penalty kick for CHftonvilie MeCiarance e'tualised from a corner. Another penaltywas given away by the Dtstillory defence, and this time Anncs'ey made no mistake, 'the result, 2 - 1 in favour of CI;ftonv.i!e. gives a fair relloK of the plfty. At lionic, Belfaj-L Celtic were only able to make a draw, one rail each, with the Belfast Blues. Both Roals were .scored in the =econd h--i!f, Ro.s getting through for the Blues and Buckle equalising, Celtic, on the play, should G'lentovan got a big siivpriso at Dublin, wdiero Slielbourne r'ln them to a goul-Uie only goal of the match, Play all through was very level, and Munroc was fortunate to score the winning ijomt for tho visitors before tlie interval BLACKTflORN.

It t h e y arc not "Holeproof " we wMl give you


T o save uncong-enial labour, to m a k e life happier and s w e e t e r tor every h u m a n being, to increase the leisure time of the o v e r - w o r k e d t h e s e things are the objects which i n v e n t o r s have striven to a t t a i n . Bell, the inventor of the telephone, j)laced all the w o i l d on c h a t t i n g t e r m s over the wires. He shewed us how to laugh at space. Edison applied electricity and enables us to brighten the d a r k e s t night. It is child's play to dispel the thickest g l o o m now. And the A i r m e n have m a s t e r e d the a r t of flying so w h a t ; there left? WHY, OUR GARMENTS STILL WEAR OUT. Jut your Hosiery need not if you will keep pace with the times, for there is now Hosiery that is Moieproof.

If you are thinking of buying Furniture, either now or in the near future, we would draw your attention to our attractive designs, our good value, and the very convenient terms available to every client. We build value into every piece of furniture we make. You get it in our un. common yet pleasing designs, in the high grade workmanship, in the quality of the woods and fabrics, and, consequently, in the wear. In fact, we guarantee our furniture to be the very best, and a long way the best value at its price. A splendid Easy Chair, in Art Tapestry. Remember, any Very elegant and comfort- f^A 1 Cf {\ able. Price ... , fc^ I j U quantity of furniture may be purchased and paid for by small monthly instalmentswithout additional cost. There are no packing or delivery charges, and we guarantee to deliver all goods in perfect condition.



The explanation of the amazing durability of " V . & \i.'\ Holeproof Hosiery is made here, so that every person can see for himself, or herselt, the g e n u i n e n e s s of it. Your own brain will s h o w you the truth of it. This "V.& H." Holeproof Hosiery is made in a new way from a specially privately maiuifactured yarn. I'his little-known yarn is lighter in weight and at the same time tougher and stronger than any other brand. It is so pliable that \t gives to continued pressure and wear, just as a sponge may be depressed by grij^ping in the hand, but still have no damage done to its fabric. There is hardly any spring or elastic stretch in ordinary hose,'even of the most expensive kind, and this accounts for the rapid appearance of holes and thin places. Luxuriously comfortable, shapely and well-made, "V. & H." Holeproof Hosiery is a revelation to all except those who wear the most costly hose.

Look at our Ticket Guarantee which is sent with every pair we se!i.






A heautifully illustrated, 300 page coloured CATALOGUE, is setit post free on request.

T h e n , if w i t h i n t h a t t i m e a hole should a p p e a r , send t h e m back t o u s a t once w i t h ticlcet, and we will p r e s e n t you w i t h new hose w i t h o u t e x t r a c o s t . No such guarantee could be given with hose made in the ordinary way. I?ut with "V. & H." Holeproof Hose you can be free from the fear of a hole suddenly showingnot only just at that point at the heel where the eyes of everyone can see, but at no part of " V . & H . " Holeproof Hose will there be a hole. I h a t we g u a r a n t e e for t w o whole m o n t h s . The comfort and pleasure of good wearing hose to men conveys a sense of well-being and satisfaction all day long, while to business girls and busy housewives, to whom the weekly darning is a long and tiresome task, the benefit is incalculable. Everyone in the country will be wearing " V. & H." Holeproof Hosiery after we can get them just to^ TRY it once. Orders are now pouring in from the friends of those who already are wearing the new " V . & H . " Holeproof Hose. The price is TWO PAIRS Ladies' Stockings 3/10, postage, 2d.; TWO PAIRS Gentlemen's Socks, 2/!0, postage, 2d. ; and a Guarantee ticket with each pair. Remember, it is easier to TRY " V . & H." Holeproof Hosiery than to darn a batch of socks and stockings every week. Please state boot size, write name and address plainly, and go for y o u r p o s t a l o r d e r nov/. Don't let good inventions pass you.
