? FOR WOMEN -."An.brtxunu. "I In London they are describing'Miss' Violet Jlarklmm's views as "Spartan advice from a woman." Sho thinks the Londoners show too mauy outward signs of fear of invasion, and sho ex presses her opinions on tilings in gen eral in a letter to a London journal: Loudon is left in Cimmerian dark ness owing to some anticipation of a Zeppelin raid (sho writes). Personally I deprecate this darkeniug of our. capi tal in view of possible bombs from pro blematical airships. When our brave men in the field are taking chances two to one; when J'aris shrugs her shoulders daily over the advent, of Titiibes, it seems to me over-complimentary to Berlin to create casualties in our streets 011 the off-chance of a visit from her airmen. I feel euro there is not the smallest reluctance 011 the part of any one of us to offer our,humble roofs in the general . darkness tor bombs de stined for Whitehall.

His un affected, sunny, geniality is infecti ous, and, while he is capable of main taining the dignity of his office, he is one of the best of illustrations of tbe ir.ct ihnt the Britisher is not always the arrogant, self-satisfied individual that foreign peoples delight to depict liiui.
