Tin: last two years in particular have shown decided activity and, progress still continues. The latest addition is an attractive cottagc to the order of Mr J. I.cney oil <vic of the l;lorkc on the western side of the line made available by Dr Rindcr, and where quite a snug little settlement is taking place. What is needed now is a movement in the slv.p building line. Mr Laity recently showed the way with a re modelling and modern fronted shop scheme on the premises occupied by him.self and Miss Grcig; others, with advantage to themselves and benefit to the community, might well follow.

London Letter. Carmelite House, London, December 11, 1915. A Japanese Fantasy. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 3 February 1916

London Letter. Carmelite House, Loudon, December 11, 1916. A Japanese Fantaiy. The real surprise at the present moment is tie enormous amount of heavy traffic in the central Btreets, particularly during the day. The roads around the city and the West End, particularly around Oxford-street, are constautly congested with carts, car riages, omnibuses and motor-cars. Oc casionally a nervous lady driver, now to the wheel, has a breakdown in the middle of Oxford-street when she has goue herself for lior afternoon's shop ping, her chauffeur being off to the ■war. This brings chaos! One of tho most delightful ways of lighting at night is the use of Japanese lanterns attached to our carts. 1 have seen quite a number of these. They arc not onlv exceedingly effective, .but as every reader who knows the Orient Is aware, they add a real touch of beauty and color to the surroundings. As I" was- crossing one somewhat dreary and sloppy West Central street a few nights ago. half a dozen boys came al...

The Will to Win. SPLENDID SPIRIT OF RUSSIAN. TROOP8. (From Bernard Pares, in "Daily Telegraph.") As I reached the terminus of ordin ary traffic I saw three or four well known laces from different parts of the actual front. All were bronzed and smiling. All had the same story, "Plenty of Bhell now." Three of them were gunners; 110 need to put a limit; the other day they drove back a German infantry attack by artil lery alone. The heavy German guns have not been much In evidence since Brest. "Do you know," said one, "I don't think even the Germans are tuucb, except for their guns. As for the Austrlans, wo don't count them; we lire, and they run, and I really think we shoot better than the Ger mans." In the town I found the usual throng of officers, especially in the chief res taurant, where a Jewish orchestra gave good music. I had to go to three dentists before 1 could find one that had not removed Into the interior. At the poods station I found an ambu lance train that was going for...

An Effective Appeal. A certain tradesman, prompted by an article he read recently on the sub ject of collecting accounts, declares that more is to be accomplished by a dunning letter couched in good-na tured language than one breathing threats in harsh words, and relates the following as an illustration: — It was our custom to let a new clerk occupy his spare time writing letters to slow customers. A clerk's merits were measured largely by the result of this work. Up in M we had a particularly bad case. It was a 1)111 for £5 against a man named Wil liam Rose. It had long been consid ered'a bad debt, but every now and then we gave it a whirl. Finally, one day, the la-st clerk put on. a brignt young fellow, laid the fol lowing lines on my desk and asked • permission to post them to Rose:— j Oh, William Rose, oil, fragraDt rose, Yourself it is who surely knows I Unsettled bills are bad. j They soil our books, they spoil our looks, !
