PEAS AND PUMPKINS. If the1 prices of vegetables in and about Sydney keep on rising, one excellent and necessary 'kind of food will soon be beyond the reach of moderate purses. And still in Sydney the man who troubles to grow his own vegetables 'is the rarest of all pos sible birds. In thicT United States and in England It is different. There everybody is growing vegetables. School-children are } growing vegetables on public reserves. Sol j dfers arc growing vegetables about ? their i barracks and camps. People are beginning j to woiidcr what is (ping, to~ become o^ the ! greencrocery business. And in Sydney green \ peas are three shillings the variable peck, f?Sand other things are in keeping. ^ ?

THE TALK OF THE TOWN Sir Herbert Beerbohm Tree. [Newspaper Article] — The Mirror — 7 July 1917

TALKonwTQWN BYTATLEF^ Sir Herbert Beerbohm Tree. It is difficult to believe that Sir H. Beer bohm Tree is dead, for he had been so long the leading figure on the English stage. I had seen him in most of his principal parts at His Majesty's Theatre in the Hay market, in London, and his massive figure, effective make-up', and impressive elocu tion will long live in the. memory. As a manager he was as painstaking as he was thorough as an actor, and I had reason to remember in one piece at least, the efforts which he sought, with the aid of scholars to secure the correct setting and atmosphere for his production. As a Man. As a man he was extraordinarily inter esting and varied in his intellectual outlook. He was hot-tempered and brusque at times, and I remember the vehemence with which on one occasion he held forth o'n the sub ject of a section of London 'wowsers.' Tree was without doubt a great figure on the English stage, and it is Australia'3 abid ing loss that he has not lived to p...

IMPROBABLE RUMOR DISCREDITED The mystery surrounding the exact causes of Les Darcy's death have been increased by various rumors which hav.c reached Sydney during the past few days. There is no doubt that the details and explanations of tne exact cause ot tne champipn's end hitherto received have been unconvincing, and the whole of the truth has been con cealed from the.

A gentleman closely connected with Darcy's family, who is in a position to ob tain information not usually accessible, has communicated to us tiie following extraor dinary report which has reached him. Les Darcy, according to the report, fought Mike Gibbons for a stake of 25,000 dollars in a private mansion in the neighborhood of New York, the fight being 'organised by the Millionaires' Club.
