SERVANTS IN CLOVER LOUNGES AND BATHROOMS. Club servants arc notoriously the most fortunate of their kind, but as a result of renovations at the Carlton Club the servants of that institution now claim to live in more luxurious conditions than any other servants in London. The renovation sehi me originated In a survey of the servants' quarters, which was followed at once by sweep ing changes.

Formerly one servants' hall did duty for the whole staff. To-day there are two halls, one for the male and the other for the female servants.

LESSONS WITH BABiES SUBSTITUTES FOit DOLL The district of Merton, Surrey, is proud of the possession of the two youngest heroines in Kngland. These are Kathleen Shlpton, aged six weeks, and Rose Bennett, aged seven months. They are the two babies who have been chosen to replace the doll which until recently was used in the Single gate Council Girls' School for the in struction of the scholars in domestic acompMshments. The doll had been almost worn nut by its long course of dressing and un dressing and washing and putting to .sleep. When it was proposed to sub stitute infants the danger to them was pointed out, but the girls of the t-chool maintain that the risks were exagger ated. The doll, it is slated, was never dropped in all Its existence, and under the eyes of their experienced teachers the girls handle the human substitutes as carefully.

A great fire in the timber-yards at Kichmond-walk, iDevonport, Is the re ply of the militant .suffragettes to the recent arrest of Mrs Pankhurst on hoard the Majestic at Plymouth. The fire which raged to-day (says "The Daily News," of December 16) was the greatest ever seen in the Three Towns, and there could be no doubt as to its authorship, for messages stating that 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 and 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" Druminond and the bodyguard waited in vain for many weary hours for the return of the police with their prisoner. Stored in the ...

WHISTLER'S WORK QUESTION OF SPEED. The common impression anions ar tists and art students undoubtedly is that Whistler was a particularly rapid worker. Mr Joseph Pennell, however, holds to tho contrary, with this advantage in argument, that, having sat to "Whistler for eight insufferably long hours, for tlie 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 Penneli's de lightful lecture on "The Revival of Lithography" at the Victoria and Al bert Museum (says tho "Westminster Gazette.") II was a real privilege to hear a skilled artist praising enthusiastically tlie high possibilities of 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 spoko of the pains and patience with which Whist ler, in particular, worked for the...
