/ Not so the Archdeacon; he had de cided to remain. Closeted -with Hugh In the' private cabin he forgot even to smoke, so great was his curiosity. "Do you mean to tell me, my dear fellow, that you propose to take her into Scotland?" he asked. Hugh admitted the infamy. "I am trusting to my judgment," h&lt;? said; "if we did that always, life would he rather easier.'Just consider, George, how much that we do is the result of men's convictions or their prejudices. Sometimes the prejudices are feminine—the argument Is the - same. I am trusting to an instinct which says that I have met one of the best of women, and that s" e has need of me. If there were a thousand advocates in this cabin at this mo ment telling me I was deceived, it would make no difference. She will go to Scotland, and I shall ask my BiBter to take up her case. After that it will be plain sailing." The Archdeacon was not so sure of . "it. "A very worthy purpose," he said, and repeated the words as though -they ...

BOWLED OUT, ' About once a month this paper re ceives. picture postcards and other photos from Westralians abroad, par ticularly IromEgypt, showing the tra vellers on camel-back in the vicinity of the Pyramids and Sphinx. Jlore than often we have been in clined: to doubt the ibona-fides of some of. those photos,.ns the senders were known to have gone straight on through the Suez Canal to Europe, not stopping at Egypt, as shown in the pictures. Then we remembered that in Port Said are studios where you can have the photo of your head put on the bodies of tourists who have really been taken close to the mighty memorials of tho ancient kings of Egypt. Last, week, however, one arrived that completely: gave itself away. Jn.it a well-known Westrallan and his wife -were seen seated on donkeys standing close to the Pyramids and Sphinx. Close examination showed the back ground of desert, Pyramids, and Sphinx to 'be faked in iby the double photo process, tho picture of the tour ists and ilonk...

Joyce, of Port Melbourne, conducted the. own ing service, there being a very large congregation.

The Sunday services were most successful. Mr, E.Grainger had the responsibility of tra...
