The Golder's Green Tube has multiplied by eight the value of land round Gol der's Green (says "The Nation.")

Franeillon answers the question It is not motor cars or aeroplanes that would astonish you. But light. The lights of London. And even younger men must remember the candle, the paraffin lamp, which smelt liorriMy, and lit but a corner of a room. Fifty years ago tlio light of the home was acandlt or two encouraged by snuffers. And this evening the awakened Victorian is dazzled by the electric lights tlwt turn midnight Into noonday.
