CORRESPONDENCE , —r MR GEORGE AND HIS ST. KILDA SPEECH. Sir,—Your report in last Tuesday's issue of our great mooting at St. Klhla against the dance ball there is almost totally untrue. The "Argus" boy reporter came for. an interview which 1 courteously gave, Tbo facts are these—A splendid meet ing, a great, crowd of dancers (just what we wanted) assembled. I was boo-hooed and counted out, but not knocked out, nor was I the least al armed, as the "'Argus" penny-rag made out. I did ask for protection, as we were a few against a thousand. I was personally kicked by a larrikin when being escorted by the police, who gave us full permit to hold the meeting. The brute, who answered me, at my own request, said exactly what the "Argus" reports. Finally, I was not "swallowed up in the crowd on the Esplanade."

ttMH (ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.) THE Hertzian Voice BY A. 8. AKTIIl'K. A STORY OF STRANGE ADVENTURE AND ROMANCE OF 1VIRELESS TELEGRAPHY. CHAPTER III. THE SHADOWING PAST. The confessi'on o£ that mood was a costly one, for before the week was out they had, in some way, wearied of the sigh-t of that daily procession of nephritics and neurotics, and were off j again, like a pair of homeless swal lows, to the Rhine salmon and the Black Forest venison of Baden. From there they fled to the mountain air of St. Miritz, where they were frozen out and driven back to Paris—but always spending freely and- thinking little of the vague to-morrow. Durkin, indeed, recognised the taint of improvidence in his veins. He was a spendthrift; he had none of the temperamental foresight and frugality of his wife, who reminded him, from time to time, and with ever-iircreasing anxiety, of their ever-melting letter of credit. But, on the other hand, she stood ready to sacrifice everything, in order to build some new...

CHAPTER V. THE GREAT DIVIDE. ! Durkin waited until, muffled aud tar ■ away. the throb and drone ot an or chestra floated up to him. Tins was , followed, seattoringly, by the bells of the different' tables d'hoto. Tney, too. sounded thin and remote, drifting up through iuo soft, warm air that had always seemed so exotic to hitiuso redolent, of foreigu-odored flowers, so burdened with alien-smelling tobacco smoke, of unfamiliar sea scents incon gruously shot through with even the fumes of an unknown and indescrib able cookery.
