OFFICER DISAPPEARS SEARCH FOR PAYMASTER A sensation has been caused in naval circles by the disappearance of Fleet Paymaster J&lt;>hn Moffat Lowry from H.M.S. Ganges, which is stationed at Harwich (says the "Daily Express" of November 27). ' A largo sum of Government money, believed to be between £10,000 and £15,000, has also disappeared, and the missing naval officer is "wanted" in connection with the matter by Scotland Yard.

Fleet Paymaster John Lowry is de | scribed in the "Navy List" as an ad ditional officer of the Shotley Train ing Establishment. He is fifty-three years of age, 5ft. Sin. in height, and fresh complexioned, his eyes and moustache being grey. He is corpu lent, and has a swinging walk.

HOME DEFENCE I Lord Glenconner (Mr Asquith's I brother-in-law and former Liberal i M.P. for Salisbury), addressing the Liverpool Liberal Federation yesterday ! (gays tho "Daily Mail" of December 2) i said that despite attenuated numbers tho Territorials cost £500,000 more than j Lord Haldane assured us would be the ; maximum cost for the full establish . ment of 312,000 men. That was not ; sound business, and the time had como for an end to bo put to these wasteful ; leakages. What were we to do? There was an . alternative measure between the Terri torial Force as now raised and conscrip i tion, the latter of which was unneces sary and had never been advocated. Tho alternative was to compel the youth of all classes to tako its turn in the Territorial Force, but instead of the six months' training which Lord Hal dane proposed should be given after war broke out, there should be a pre I liminary period of recruits' training, i If the extension of the Territorials, j both in numbers an...

In Africa, for instance, explained M. Perrier, there are only 400,000 ele phants left, and they are being killed at the rate of 40,000 a year, whereas tlieir rate of reproduction is slow. Whales are In a like case, and M. Perrier foresees very hard times for the Norwegian Trust, which combines 20 whalo fishery companies, whose shareholders are small investors. Dealing with the osprey, which is found only in New Guinea, M. Perrier points out that the aigrette is obtained from the male bird, in whose plumage occur annually at the laying season the 40 odd sprays wh...

COOL=HEADED WOMEN I "BETTER DRIVERS THAN MEN." The advent of the light motor-car has inspired hundreds of women to learn to drive, and almost every day on thre Chelsea Embankment, which is free from heavy traffic, passers-by watch the beginning of the woman motorist's career. An instructor informed a represen tative of the "Daily Mail" on Novem ber 26 that the woman driver is either very good or hopeless. "I can tell at the first lesson," he said, "and it has been my experience that the good woman driver is superior to the male driver. Posesssing a delicate touch, she rarely bungles the gears, and when driving Is coolness personified. It is, I think, a question of concentration, for a woman I taught recently told me, after driving through London with the skill and dash of a taxicab driver, that she suffered horribly from nerves all night. "The other day a young married woman, with absolutely no experience of motoring, drove on her second les son through Oxford street and Regent stre...
