SMALL EXCHANGES TELEPHONE HUMOR' What is the smallest telephone ex change in the world? A member of "The Dully Mali" staff, turning over the pages of the telephone directory came across the Castlebelllngham area; which contains but three subscribers. However, it is a fine, big,-fat, lusty name, and evidently Impressed the Post Ofllce, for the entry in the directory begins like this: "Castlebellinghum urea, Including Castlebelllngham. Public Call Ofllce: Castlcbclliughuin." A brave effort to give the entry fur ther scenic importance is made by a lengthy direction as to what one must do In the event of faults and service difficulties, but the melancholy fact re^ mains that a brewery, some corn mer chants, and Mrs Woolsey-Butlcr share Castlebelllngham- exchange bet-ween them. We rang up , CastlcbelHngham. "Trunks'.' opera toiv first wondered if we wanted Baiham. We said, "No," and insisted politely on Castlebelllngham, explaining that It was .in Ireland, near Dundalk.

LABOR AND LAKKIN MR HAVELOCK WILSON'S V113WS James Larkin, tho Dublin striko lead er, has aroused active opposition from some English trade union teaders by his "fiery cross" tour in this country (says "Lloyd's Weekly, November SO). Notable protests have been made by Mr J. Havelock Wilson, president of the Sailors' and Firemen's Union, and Mr J. H. Thomas, M.P., of the National Union of Rallwaymen. Mr Trosam, in a speech at Newton Abbot on Sunday, said Darkin's mani festo was as lll-tlmed as it was unfair, as unfortunato as it was mischievous if railway companies broke agreements tho men would be justified in doing everything they could to deal with the situation so created, but, while they in , slated qn the companies observing ^agreements, tho men must adhere to ' tho same code of honor. I So far as the sympathetic strike was I concerned, when once the National I Union of Railwaymen gave counten ance to that policy assuredly the end of their society had begun. Mr Havelock Wilson, ...

NEW SHAW PLAY AUTHOR'S METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 14 February 1914
NEW SHAW PLAY AUTHOR'S METHODS. It is a very little one, this new play of Mr Shaw's. It lusts only a, triflo more tluui an hour, and that Is more than long .enough'• - (says tho '.'Daily Telegraph")* It never attempts to be anything more Important .than roaring farce. It never succeeds in being remark ably funny. Not-for the llrst time you will envy the ease with which Mr &>haw is amused by his own wit. He crams together good jokes and bad, inventions really comical and tho most tedious banalities. At-any moment he may wander off from a happy thought into the dullest trilling. To the fortunate author it is doubtless all equally funny, but you long to submit him to a drastic sub editor. The idea foi: this farce was quite a lucky find. Imagine a respectable Englishman, just the kind of Eng lishman at whom the comic papers have been laughing for years, thrust into- the presence of the Empress Catherine, that lady of innumerable lovers. There ought to be plenty of fun in ...
