A.M.P. SOCIETY. SPEECH BY MR GEO FAIRBAIRN. SUMS ASSURED £100,000,000. The 65th annual meeting of the policy-holders of the Australian Mutual Provident Society was held in the head office of the society, Pitt-street, Sydney on Thursday afternoon. Delegates from the other States were present, in addi tion to the head office directors. Mr A W Meeks, M.L.C., presided. The Chairman, in moving the adoption of the report, said that, looking to the course of events during the past year, it would not have been a matter of surprise if he had been forced to report a falling-off In new business. The pro. longed strike in New Zealand led to a serious dislocation of business in the Deminion, and the small-pox scare in Sydney interferred with the ordinary operations. Notwithstanding these circumstances, however, the new business of the past year, in both the ordinary and industrial departments, was in excess of that of any previous year. The industrial department had kept pace with the ordinary; ...

WIT AND HUMOR. "Therese changes her hair con stantly." "That's rCecause it's so close to her mind, probably.' "What kind of a disguise are you going to wear at the masquerade?" "A 'diaphanous' gown." People will see right through that." "I don't know what I want to eat to-day. I'd like a little of everything." "Very well, sir," replied the waiter. "The hash will be ready in a few min utes." "So you don't approve of those London Suffragettes?" "I don't know much about them," replied Miss Cayen, "but I can't help feeling that a woman who can't sub due a few men without the use of dynamite is something of a failure." "This isn't a clean knife, Jane," said the young mistress to the new servant. "Well, it ought to be," said the ser vant, "for the last thing it cut was soap." "Mly dear wife spent her early years in a milliner's shop," said a wealihy self-made man the other day. '"Mine spends most of her time there now," growled his friend. "She's pretty dear, too!"

GREATER THAN -GOLD By L. T. MEADE, Author of "The Soul of Margaret Rand," etc. Published by arrangement with Ward,, Lock and Co.; Loqdon & Melbourne. All Rights Reserved. CHAPTER VIII. Sheila Danvers possessed those at tributes which are the common and much-valued .prerogatives of certain mixed races. On her mother's side she was Irish to her finger-tips; she had all the impetuosity, the fire, the enthusiasm, the imagination of those fascinating people. Mrs. Danvers had been a Carey from Donegal, and her descent was long and pure. On the other side, Sheila's father was a stur dy Yorkshireman, firm of figure, up "right in his bearing, and with a splen did sense of conscientiousness. But Sheila inherited something far more valuable than money. She had derived from her mother pride of race and distinction of carriage. Her eyes-those truly Irish eyes-were put in, as the saying is, "with dirty fingers," the skin around them being a shade darker than the rest of the face. Then, co...

"Well." said Mr. Chatterley, with distinct and deliberate emphasis, "simply because they make a deity of a woman who has sense enough to give her chin a rest!"
