TO PROSPECTIVE BRIDES. The good old custom of send ing slices of wedding cake to friends has received a blow at the hands of the Postmaster General. The postal officials ob ject to wedding cake because it attracts mice and rats, exudes grease, casts off crumbs, and is unpleasant to handle. A regula tion' was therefore gazetted about a fortnight ago' -?stating that 'packet's containing weddingcake shall not be posted unless the wedding cake, is securely packed in tin boxes, and if any packet containing wedding cake not securely packed in a tin box is posted the package shall be deemed to be posted, in contra vention of the act, and dealt with accordingly.'

WARMING ST. PAUL'S. [Newspaper Article] — Huon Times — 2 March 1910
WARMING ST. PAUL'S. With the double object of warm ing the great building thoroughly and of removing any danger oi its destruction by fire, a new system of heating is being in stalled in St. Paul's Cathedral. For months a small army of workmen has been engaged in re placing the old heating apparatus by a modern, low-pressure steam system. The old means of warm ing the cathedral was by coke furnaces, eight on each side, the hot air from which rose through gratings. When supplemented by -heat from burning gas jets these furnaces were sufficient to warm the cathedral, but since (electricity ' has been installed the need of a modern system has been felt. Never before has an attempt been made to heat such a large building by steam radia tors, and it is not yet known how many will be required. * Already a number, cleverly concealed, have been placed in position, but it will be some time before a trial is made. As a further precaution against fire the furnaces which produce the steam are p...

STOLEN PEARLS. DIFFICULT TO DISPOSE OF. It is not safe' to try to sell stolen pearls too cheap, as 'has just. been dis covered, much to her confusion, by a woman who displayed extraordinary cleverness in robbing £12,000 worth from a saleswoman (says the Paris cor respondent of the 'Daily Telegraph'). -ihe latter was commissioned to take a quantity of pearls, and to show them to private fanciers. The saleswoman took care to put them in an inside pocket in her skirt, and was in a train, when another ; woman sat down beside her. She noticed nothing until she had left the train and was about to enter the 'house where she was to show the pearls. She then found, to her amazement, that her pocket was empty, and that her skirt had been cut by a thief, who could be no other than the woman who had been at her side in the train. Th© police were at once informed, but, under the circumstances, and con sidering the great value of the pearls, it seemed almost hopeless to find tho thief, who would ...

It is true that one or two residents oi the town are the possessors of small sailing craft, but they are tew, and insufficient to constitute anything like a club competent to promote satisfactory sport.
