Mrs Tina-ley ha» come from Point Lama, California, Id order to found a TheoEophliUc seminary In the New Forest, on a property belonging to her companion, the Ron. Man Herbert. ' Confucius and Zoroaster, Ua bomraed. and a Greater than these— and now Katherino Tingley.'

THE PAGEANT IN AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 27 November 1907
THE PAGEAKT IN AMERICA. 1 The limitations of the country's history , are naturally a drawback to the wide ' spread of -'the pageant laea' In the ; United States, but e New England paper makes the practical suggestion that It might usefully supersede the present mania for costly exhibitions. For ex ample. In order to celebrate the settle ment at Jamestown, America has enest millions ot oouars ouiiaing up a ir? mendoDs; exposition that lasts four or .five .months.tuia ends -with a deficit.' In. ISngrlflnd, on the contrary, a Jamestown celebration n would probably, hive taken i the form of a week's pageant,' aiid every one would have fceea cotnplete-y satisfied The recent 'exercises' at Provln-etown, ' at which' the President made a notable speech, would also have affordei an op portunity for a living picture of the his torical event commemorate!.

ENGIAKD AND GEKMAlfY. The majority of the Bogllsh people aek tor nothing better than to see more ! cordial relations established between! Germany and England, but they askj first of all that Germany shall give ' serious evidence of the sincerity of her friendly professions. Let Germany, in ' the first place, give incontestable proof of tbe sincerity of tbe sentiments which she professes, and tbe Germans will find that she will not stretch out her band in vain to the English.— 'Journal des Debats,' Paris.

GILBERT AND SULLIVAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 27 November 1907
GELBEBT AK» BITtlJVAN. Sir W. S. Gilbert has written a letter to the 'Dublin Evening Herald' in re ference to an article In that caper con cerning himself, which contained many errors. In the course of the letter he said:— 'A circumstantial account of the separation between Gilbert and Sul livan is given In great detail. There Is not a word of truth in that statement The 'separation' was not between 'Gil- bert and Sullivan.' but between 'myself and Mr D'Oylv Carte.' It arose from a queston whether a sum of L1600 for refurnishing the front of the Savoy Theatre was properly included in the 'preliminary expenses of the production of The Gondoliers. I had no quarrel with Sir A. Sullivan, though a coolness existed between us for a time in conse quence of bis declining to interfere in the difference between Mr Carte and myself. This coolness lasted a vary short time, and was quickly done away with by mutual expressions.'

CONAN DO-STLE'S STORIES. SOME GOOD SPECIMENS. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, whose second marriage has brought him Into the pub lic eye once more, is the central figure o£ many an amusing anecdote.
