YANKEE ENTERPRISE. An enterprising American came over to England and decided to open a shop in London. Hlie obtained premises next door to a man who also kept a shop of the same description, but was not very pushing in his business methods, preferring to jog along in the old con servative way. The methods of the mlew-comler, howeveir caused the old trader to wake up, and, with the spirit of originality strong upon him, he af fixed a notice over his shop with the words:--' Established fifty years,"'' painted iu large letters.

One of these, a woman, Imany years a widow, who had always worked hard and "kept herself .e spectable,'" was talking of her only suo,, a stoker in the Navy. It was just after the war began, and his ship was in the North Sea. Some officious friend had been rubbing it into her that, as he was unmarried, she ought to draw his pay in his absence. She declared that she 'alwvays 'ad kep' 'erself," and she didn't expect hint to keep her while she could work.t The friend persisted, saying she ought to draw his pay; it was her right. "At last, 1 fairly lost my temper," she said, "an; I up and says to 'e.', 'Damn 'is pay!

QUITE TRUE. The vicar of a mining village sent a pair of boots to the cobbler's for r'epairs; but Bill, who had boeen m hibing rather freely, felt no inclina tiou for workl, o the boots were not touched that day. Next morning his nerves wore rather shaky and he longed tor "a hair of the dag that hit hiim. Iis own boots were rather dirty, so he thought there was no harm in putting o, the parson's, which he nac.ordingly did, and turnod off into the village pub for a big "reviver." lhe had not guione very far when whom did he meet but the vicar, who said: "1 sent my boots downll for repairs, William. Are you uuot finished with them yet ?" " Wey, mister,"' answered Bill calmly, "they?'re not mended yit, but they're on the road." ''Do you know, miy ldear,'" said the young husband, "there's something wrong with the cake? It doesn't taste right."' "That is all your im agination," answered the wife, trium lhantly, "for it says in my new cookery book that it is delicious."

SCENES OF HAVOC. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 30 April 1915

SCENES OF HAVOC. The town of Suvalki at present can be roached only by horses or motor cars, as the railway was destroyed by the Germauns, and is now in process of restoration. Trains from Grodno run only as far as Augustoff, as just be youd the latter town the bridge over one of the lakes was blown up. The day after the Germans were expelled fromn Suvalki the Rlussiaop engineers be gun to build a temporary bridge, which by now is probably completed. The line which crosses the Niemen at Olita has also been destroyed, and trains run no further tthan Shestakoff, beyond imnlo. From here to Suvalki all the rails have been torn up, and hydrants and points blown to pieces. For dozens of miles both sleepers and rails have been taken away bodily to Prussia, and no traces of the line re main. If it were not for embankments and telegraph posts yith their broken wires no one would guess that a railway had ever passed through the district.
