CHORUS GIRLS' ESCAPE. FEW PRETTY GIRLS WHO CAN SING. With the increase that has taken pla:e in recent years in musical crrnedy pro duction the call for girls of prepossess ing appearance who can sing has grown so much that at present the demand far exceeds the supply.

MEG OF RED ROWANS i By FLORENCE G WYNNE IIIXON. The servants' hal' at Red Rowans looked very cool and pleasant on that hot August evening. Miss Penelope Ullathorne liked to make he- servants comfortable, and, moreover, she be lieved in the refining influence of Na ture. Accordingly t: : 1 all looked out on a glorious stretch of Yorkshire coast, with Bridlington on one hand and the splendidly jutting peak of Flamborough Head upon the other. 'Has she come?' asked Susan Price, the upper housemaid. 'Yes,' returned Mills, the footman; 'James drove in with her a few minutes since. I saw her as sho got out. She's a rare pretty one, Susan. Such a pair ot ddrk eyes! She'll put your nose out c: joint!' Miss Price gave a rather scornful tilt to the feature which Mills had men tioned. Her own eyes -vere blue, and not very exprestive; ' ut, of course, she 1 ' her private notions of female t-auty^. 'Hush!' said a quiet, sensible-looking man near the head of the table; and the next moment a very p...

ARTIFICIAL SILK. CHEAPER EVEN THAN RAGS. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 14 February 1907
ARTIFICIAL SILK. CHEAPER EVEN THAN RAGS. 1 The silkworm has been beaten at his own business, for by a new invention it is claimed that artificial silk can be made cheaper than rags. Artificial silk, so soft and glopsy that it will deceive even experts when woven, has for some time past been mado from viscoso, which is obtained from- cotton and certain kinds of wood pulps. It has now been found possible by a special process to got cellulose (an earlier stage of the same substance) from tho cotton seeds' husks, formerly thrown away or given to cattle for food. The new process has been patented, and Mr Strong, of the Cotton, Ooll and Fibre Company, of Norfolk, Virginia, who is in London on business, recently told an 'Express' representative of tho possibilities of the discovery. 'Commercially this new method of get ting ceila'nse is of tho utmost Import ance,' he said. 'CcPc'tose is the foun dation not only of artificial ~'ck, but of guneotton, smokeless powder, celluleid. and vuleanis...

Then a l'resh prisoner pops lip suddenly in the dock, liko a jack-in-the-box. I You look at him, and, at the lirst glance, you get a shrewd suspicion that he has boen in that dock be fore. It is net that he has a vicious cast of countenance ; on the con trary. his whole appearance is emi nently respectable. Hut the interest ed survey of his surroundings that you look for in the novice is not there. The raised eyebrows and the half-closed eyelids remind you of the man in tho stalls, who, having seen the piece before without thinking very highly of it. is Present a second time to please others rather than himself.
