'I've got him!' ? 'Oh, what a lovely one!' cried Euphemia. ?'How well you did catch him! I'm sure you must have some secret way o* doing it. None o' the others caught one yet.

The hers d'oeuvres were placed in carriages drawn by live fan-tailed pigeons, and the chef served a large pie, which, when cut, brought forth a Hock of live birds. A.M.U. l-ete. Sir Thomas and L,ady Anderson Stuart's beautiful home, Lincluden, at Double Bay, looked gay and festive last Saturday afternoon, when a fete was held in aid of the Army Medi cal Corps Fund.

Lincluden can boast of a beautiful ter race, which is marked by a carved balustrade formerly adorning the Commercial Bank' in George-street. Sir Thomas and Lady Ander son Stuart, have a ...
