ENTERTAINMENTS .. ' ♦ ROYAL HALL PICTURES. TO-NIGHT'S PROGRAMME. A particularly attractive bill of fare has been provided Tor patrons of the Royal Hall to-night, every lilm being a popular one. The star picture is "The Little Snow Waif,'' which outlines a pretty story as well as showing- the striking "con trast between the squalor and mis ery of the slums aud the happy and wealthy -quarters. It is a picture that will find a ready echo in every heart, and the same may be said of "Old Folks Christmas." This pic ture deals principally with two Poor children, who write a letter to C!od asking him to send along, j Santa Claus with presents. How, i they were answered is delightful land pathetic. A subject of more than ordinary interest is "Three Wise Men," in which a wealthy and l sceptical resident of New York is transferred to -a district there _ to meditate on the great lesson of the asres.

PACTS AND FANCIES. The Safety-Pin. "Tho originator of the safety-pin," says an historian of inventions, ''was a little bov; an English blacksmith's 6on. Tho little boy—Harrison by name —had to look alter his baby brother. Tho baby often cried., and its tears were .usually to be traced to pin punc tures. He failed in working out a safety-pin, but his father, the black smith perceiving the utility of the idea the lad had been at work on, took it up on his own account, and eventually turned out the safety-pin that is in uso to-day all over the world."
