His Trouble. She was a remarkably pretty girl; he a very busy man. "You write the sweetest love-let ters, dear," she said. "I do love to think that in the middle of your bus iness you remember me." "Naturally, I don't forget you," he replied. "My secretary, a most cap able young man, has orders to write you a letteT for me to sign every morning." "And the flowers and chocolates you send me twice a week are just my favorites." "That's so? I told my secretary to send them every Tuesday and Fri day. Glad you like them. My sec retary, as I said before, is a very capable young fellow." Three months later the busy man was found gnashing his teeth in his office. "Dash it!" he was saying.

Where He Was "At Home." [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 18 May 1917
Where He Was "At Home." A well-known lady is noted for her ' gracious manners. Her wit, though &lt; keen, has not the sharp flavor of per sonality which distinguishes the bright sayings of so many society wo men. The other day, however, when a young man whoso father had amass ed a large fortune in the manufacture of tallow candles was presented to her, and Immediately began1 to talk loudly of his experiences on a recent Continental trip, she became some ,what Impatient of his pretensions. "Were you in Paris?" she asked. "Oh, yes; Paris was my head quar ters." "In Italy?" "I spent a fortnight in Rome, and it occurred to me that there I had found alike the capital of religion and art" "In Greece?" "Surely!" replied the young man, adding, with a veiled allusion to re cent classical honors he had won. "There I lived indeed happily." "Oh!" exclaimed the lady (with a sly allusion to the tallow-chandler Ing), "I had forgotten; there, of ( course-you were at home!"

Pupley's Fowls. When Pupley invested in six worse for-wear hens, he made straightway for the local grocer, and inquired whether that gentleman would give him market price for the produce of his feathered stock. ] The grocer smiled at hi3 hopeful ness, and told him he would be only too pleased to buy at current rates. To. his surprise, Pupley called round with forty-two eggs as the result of his , hens' first week's exertions.

"Oh! that accounts for It," answer ed his visitor. "For ?what?" "Accounts for them laying pickled eggs,'' said the grocer. "I hardly know how to answer you," said she, when the widower pro posed.

"Take the steam er westward from Alexandria," he says, "to Mursa Matruh along the ' Mediterranean coast towards the Tri poli frontier; here is a force cut off from all civilisation; it takes 60 tons of provisions per week to ration the troops; the little craft can only carry about 40 tons, so there are short sup plies. But the Y.M.C.A. is there, maintaining its reputation as the sol . diors' friend, and supplying their phy ? sical, social .and spirtual needs. In the desert east of the Suez Canal an interesting development Is taking place. Most people have heard of the Cape to Cairo route, but not everybody knows that this line will not end at Cairo, but is even now extended to the Canal, and at Kantara is being carried across and on, out into the desert, towards Palestine, ultimately to link up the great European and Eastern systems of railways; Bagdad, Constantinopl...

FAMOUS FOR HER HAIR. PICTURE FILM ARTIST TELLS HOW TO RETAIN IT. Miss Rosa Norma, in a recent Inter- j view in Melbourne, made the follow-) ing statement:-"Any lady or gentle rran can restore their hair to its na tural color should it be fading, falling or becoming streaked with grey, and promote a vigorous growth with this simple recipe, which they can mix at home:-Take I'Aoz. of Rejuveni Compound, to which add loz. of Bay Rum, shaking well together, and then add enough water to make up to lOoz. | pint). You will be more than I surprised, at the gratifying results ob tained by its uie. It is not a dye, and there is consequently no fear of dis colored pillows from its rubbing off rluring sleep.

As It Worked. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 18 May 1917
As It Worked. Tomkins and his wife were in the pit; hut they were not happy, for in front of them sat a lady who wore on her head a praiseworthy amateur flower garden, which she declined to remove. B Mrs. Tomkins knows something o her sex. She made, audible com ments from lively to severe upon the general construction of that hat. "1 tried it on myself last week," she finished, scornfully; "but I would not take It-it seemed too cheap to be good!" "How do you know it's the same hat?" queried Tomkins, innocently. He was quite entering into the spirit of the thing. "Why, because the price ticket is still on it!" was the triumphant an swer. ! The supercilious smile which had I curled, about the lips of the wearer of Hie hat vanished, a hand shot up viciously, withdrew- the murderous pins, and, sad, to say, one of the trio . missed the whole of the first act ' searching for the ticket which was '? not there!

BRITAIN'S NATIONAL THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — Alpine Observer and North-Eastern Herald — 18 May 1917
BRITAIN'S NATIONAL THEATRE. There are few theatres with a more interesting history than the historic house; in. Drury Lane. In, the; first place, the theatre is.opon without any licence from the Lprd Chamberlain, as the Royal Letters Patent were first granted by Charles II. to Thomas Kil ligrew, groom of the chamber to the King. It is .difficult, to. conceive.that the most gigantic theatre in the King dom should at one time have been sold for the consideration of half a sovereign; yet such indeed has beon the case. For over 200 years, up to the close of the nineteenth century, Drury Lane was guarded by soldiers during every performance. The custom originated during the reign of George II., whose life was once attempted wlion he was Prince of Wales by a fanatic. The guardroom, however, being in a very bad state, the general commanding the. home district withdrew the troops. I Since its opening in 1663 the thea tre has.seen many innovations, among them being the introduction of foot l...
