'here 1.s ttoe thing one would like feminism to do at once, and that is to change its namo to humanism, 'I'lie great change, which has been coming over the huimanis movement of late and which has been increasing the velocity of the movement so that one feels it will in the near future sweep in all humanity, is that it is becoming a working women's movement. It is turning women who never worked ,e fore into workers, and it is touching the greyest lives of toiling mothers with warmth and light. II England, the movement began in the middle classes, and some of the most effective stimu lus was at first given by men.

COCOANUT GROWING PRIOFPITABILE ''NTERPIIS:. During the past few years (says "The Dally Telegraph") the constantly-rising price of the products of the cocoanut palm tree has not only attracted the at tention of tropical planters engaged in the production of the nuts and manu facturers in Europe and America.who' employ cocoanut-oil, or colr, In their Industries, but also interested flnanclers desIrous of findlng new outlets for capital. The advance in prices have been phe nominal. A very few years ago copra -that Is, dried kernels of the cocoanut from which the oil Is obtained-could be bought at from £10 to £12 per ton, The market quotations yesterday for the same article were from £30/15/ to £32 18/9 per ton, an increase of nearly 300 per cent. in about ten years.

BANANAS AND TOMATOES DIET IN WINTEltR. Neal street, Long-acre (says "The DailyrTelegraph" of January 9),is not all attractive thoroughfare, Narrow, dark and cheerless, frequently crowded and noisy, such is this passage connectilng iGovent-garden with the aristocratic neighborhood of Bloomsbury.

In the little street may be seen, at times, hundreds of costermon gers, intent on securing supplies of fruit.
