TOTTING IT UP. Captain Godfrey, who wrote tho first book on British boxing— A Treatise on the Useful Science of Defenco' — once appeared in tho King's Bench as surety for a friend for £3p-)0. Although Sergeant Wllloughby, tho opposing counsel, knew well that the captain was good for a larger amount, he Insisted on proof that ho was worth so much. Slowly tho captain recited particulars of his means, and finally wninntrhhv nald there was still not onough by £60.' . , . 'Well, as to that,' said tho captain, I have the noto of hand of ono Sergeant Willoughby for £60, and I hopo ho will soon havo the honesty to pay me.'

RAGE FOR BLACK. LATEST DICTATE OF FASHION. There is no doubt about black being far nnd nwny lho favorite color both for frocks and hats this season amongst the best drcssed women, who are wise enough to rea lise that there Is nothing that Btands out with greater distinction than an all-blacl: toilette. The value of this effect is en hanced by the blaze of color Indulged In by those who blindly follow the fashions of the moment and Indulge In the vogue for brilliant color schemes. Not only Is black adopted for dresses and 1 coats nnd skirts alike, but the nil-black hat, fashioned of flno Chantllly lace, simply trimmed with a velvet bow and band, has once more come Into vogue. This typo of hat is Infinitely more becoming than those bright-hued -and eccentric models that havo had their day. and for the moment are Inid y aside. The only relief that ono flnds to tills s severe type of trimming Is the use of bcauti- ! ful long ospreys and birds of Paradise dyed i- a jet black; or for thos...

RICH AND POOR. 'It Is significant of the rapid growth of enlightened opinion that, whilst tho wealthier one-ninth of tho nation is to con tribute forty-flvo millions, the poorer eight ninths are asked only for twenty millions,' ! says the New Statesman. 'Wo have broken quite away from tho figment of equal con tributions from direct and indirect taxation respectively, for which no economic or other intellectual argument was ever adduced. 'Though Mr. Lloyd George hopes to get j no less than seventeen millions out of an I extra halfpenny per half-pint of beer, the I fulllng-ofC in consumption from all causes is estimated at 35 per cent.'

TOO MUCH TIPPERARY. SOLDIERS SICK OF IT. PRESENT-DAY FAVORITES. [Newspaper Article] — Western Age — 30 January 1915
TOO MUCH TIPPERARY. SOLDIERS SIOK OF IT. PRESENT-DAY FAVORITES. ..^'ce-Corporai v- Ruwcll Wnrrcn Bays that the songs our soldiers slngt have been a constnnt, source of astonishment to our r rench nnd Belgian Allies. The French sol dier, as he marches, swings nlong to a lilt ing refrain full of references to tho flag and I'ranco and death on the Held of honor, But the^Britlsh Tommy sturdily scorns sentimen tality. And this Is as true of tho Terri torials and Lord Kitchener's new army In training as it is of the men at the front. As wo of Queen Victoria's Rifles march through Mayfair to Hyde Bark, you hear very little patriotic music from us. — irue, we do occasionally whistle tho Mar seillaise and the Russian National Anthem, /r Ky .way of 'PP^'clatJon of our Allies. (La Brabnnconnc, hy the way, has so far eluded us), But, fortunately, nobody attempts to sin? either of them, and wo do not whistle them too often.

Discounting Gallic politeness, the evidence Is convincing that the French regard our r soldiers with an admiration second only to -gg their admiration for/their own delightful gun, M 'with purple-staine.l mouth,' the eloquent «K2 'solxante-qulnao.' Indeed, they are apt lo think that, If not exactly the Inventors of tho British Army. they are at least its 'discoverers'; that it -j is In a sense, a gloriously destructive little weapon which (with the 75) w...
