SERVANTS IN CLOVER LOUNGES AND BATHROOMS. Club servants arc notoriously tho most fortunate of their kind, but aa a result of renovations at tho Carlton Club tho servants of that institution now claim to live in moro luxurious conditions than any other servants in London.

WHISTLER'S WORK QUESTION OF SPEED. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 14 February 1914

WHISTLER'S WORK QUESTION OF SPEED. The common impression among ar tists and art students undoubtedly is tlmt Whistler was a particularly rapid worker. Mr Joseph Pennell, however, holds to the contrary, with this advantage in argument, that, having sat to Whistler for eight insufferably long hours, for the purpose of a sketch portrait which has all the apparent characteristics of a "lightning" drawing, he speaks as one who kows—only too well! Pleasant "asides," of this piquant nature, were the best features of Mr Pennell's de lightful lecture on "The Revival of Lithography" at the Victoria and Al bert Museum (says the "Westminster Gazette.") It was a real privllego to hear a skilled artist praising enthusiastically the high possibilities df lithography,and prophesying for it a great future. Show ing on the screen some beautiful modern examples of the art by Whistler and Georgo Clausen, Mr Pennell spoke of the pains and patience with which Whist ler, in particular, worked for the exac...

May your married life be one long summer day, flooded with sunshine and cloudless; may your only troubles bo little ones. Throughout my life, a life of disappointment and perpetual grim fight against adverse circumstan ces, my first thought has been always my wife's and our children's welfare their happiness. My heart is too full for a long letter. 1 know not •whether to weep or laugh. The thought of los ing you—it seems only yesterday I was tip-toeing into the bedroom where you nestled, a newborn little mite, in your dear mother's arms; what more beautiful, more touching picture?—the thought of losing you would be un bearable, but for the knowledge that I am surrendering my dear daughter to a strong, noble, worthy fellow who will cherish, love, and honor her.

SENSE OF TOUCH TEST OF POWERS OF BLIND [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 14 February 1914

SENSE OF TOUCH TEST OF POWERS OF BLIND The King* and Queen have shown their interest in a remarkable experi ment which has been conducted at Sun derland in order to test the accuracy of the impressions conveyed to the blind through their sense of touch. A number of children of the Council Blind School were recently asked to express in clay the impression received, after handling various objects, includ ing animal models, etc, in the Sunder land Museum.

The following letter has now been sent by Lord Durham to Mr J. A.

SUFFRAGETTE "REVENGE" VAN-DWELLERS RUINED. [Newspaper Article] — Korong Vale Lance and North West Advertiser — 14 February 1914

SUFFRAGETTE "REVENGE" VAN-DWELLERS RUINED. A great flro in the timber-yards at Jiichmond-walk, iDevonport, Is the re ply of the militant suffragettes to tlio recent arrest of Mrs Pankhurst on board the Majestic at Plymouth. The Arc which raged to-day (says "The Dally News," of December 16) was tiie greatest ever seen in the Threo Towns, and there could he no doubt as to Its authorship, for messages stating thut it was a "reply to the torture of Mrs Pankhurst," and asking, "How dare the Government arrest Mrs Pank hurst and allow Sir Edward Carson aud Mr Bonar Law to go free?" were fastened to adjacent railings. To make the revenge complete, the incendiaries chose for the outrage the place whence sailed the special steamer which foiled the suffragettes' plans for the attempted rescue of Mrs Pank hurst. Is was here, too, that, on Thurs day week, "General" Drummond and the bodyguard waited in vain for many weary hours for the return of the police with their prisoner. Stored in tlio yard...

Our Vacant Spaces. Closer Settlement Blunders.

The State is spending millions of money in buying big estates to be eut up into allot ments suitable for the small hold er ; it is advancing other millions to those small holders to put them on their feet. This policy, if suc cessfully carried out, means the peopling of our vacant spaces and the lasting prosperity of our rather overgrown cities. However, the committee ap pointed to inquire into the mat ter issued a report which has filled many members of Parlia ment and many of the public with dismay.
