ACTRESS'S 89TH BIRTHDAY Yesterday that line actress, Mrs Jnhn Billington, entered her OOtlvyear (says "The Daily Telegraph" of Janu ary 5) and lier many friends in and outside the profession will be delighted to know that, in spite of her great age and precarious health, she preserves all her vigor of mind, together with that cheerfulness of spirit which has always been one of her most endearing eharac te rls t i cs. Mrs Billington's youthful successes were achieved in the early days of Queen Victoria's reign, when theatres were few and salaries low; but friends were plenty.

Lady Montainor meant to keep lici word, not to enlighten Robert as to the terrible proposal Gwendolen " dared to insult him with,'' but his will proved stronger than liers. When he joined her at ureal;fast next morning she noticed in his whole manner an access ol' that cheery' strength which she so admired in her " middle-aged boy." Years ago he had noL possessed that quality. He had been nervous, sensitive, passionate.

Ho replied that, if approached, he would be prepared to treat with the London County Council "as a willing seller and a willing purchaser." "I would rather sell it to a public authority than to a private owners," he said. "It is a property, I think, which would be better held—011 account of its size and importance—by a public authority.

POLICE AND LAMPS CRESSET TO ELECTRIC TOUCH [Newspaper Article] — Pitfield Banner and Hollybush Times — 28 March 1914

POLICE AND LAMPS CIUOSKET TO ELECTRIC TOUCH The London policeman's "bull's- | eye" is, according to report, shortly . to puss away (says the "Daily Tele- [ graph" or January S). In its stead j he is to have an electric torch, which , will spread light before and around ' him, while he himself remains un seen. At his bidding there will be light, though doubtless there will be times when, pressing a button with twentieth century confidence in j science, he will call for light and none will come. But that modern wizard, the electrician, may be trusted to sec to it that these occasions are rare. "Beloved Peeler" lias become so much an institution with us that we are apt to forget there was a time when, so far from being thus affec tionately hailed in song, lie was the target for hearty abuse and ridicule. For in order that lie might come an other had to go, and though the eighteenth century "Charley" was about as fit to preserve order as a | ruined keep would be to repel a siege train, ...
