LONDON NEWS. ROYAL FAVOURS. One often wonders how a good-natured monarch like King George and his illus- trious farther can find the means of con- ferring some mark of the Roval favour upon all those whom he desires to honour, as for instance! the doctors and nurses who attended on the late Prince Francis of Teck, who have. received from his Majesty i treasured souvenirs. Of course there are gradations in such matters. One case calls for a G.C.B., while in another all the conditions are satisfied by a, shake of the hand, hut hetwelell these extremes there must be a, great number of people who present a problem which can only be solved by a, very large exercise of grace- ful ingenuity, such as we find frequently reported in the Press. For example the King has had several walking1 sticks fashioned out of wood grown at Balmoral, whither he has recently been, and he. has thus been enabled to make to some of his friends a present which they will certainly value highly. In one way or another it would appear, all the Royal resources are drawn upon, and it is evident that our ¡ present King resembles his father, among J U other things, in this, that lie devotes a good deal of thought to the accomplish- ment of his desire to make other people pleased and happy. THE ASCENDANCY OF THE MOTOR- CAR. The announcement that Miss Marie Corelli has purchased a high-power motor. car, has evoked some comment on account of her well-known hostility to motorism in all its forms, In several of her books she bitterly attacks the "road-hog," and in her latest work "The Devil's Motor A Fantasy," published last month, she de- pictsthe aeroplane and motor car, as the | agents of the Evil One, It would seem that Miss Corelli is like a good many other people, who have for years in- veigled against the flying car, and all its nuisances, and end in becoming motorists themselves, Those who have always been attached to horses, and have the means and opportunities to indulge in motoring, seem sooner or later to fall victims to the attractions of the- car, and no one can doubt its growing ascendancy. Before long the names of many of the old country hotels and inns, such as the "Coa.ch and Horses," the "Flying .Horses" and so on, will seem, strangely out of date. THE DICKENS TESTIMONIAL. The Dickens Testimonial Stamp, of which the final design has been approved, will 'shortly be obtainable by those who wish to take part in this world-wide tribute to the memory of the great novel- ist. The scheme differs somewhat from the Shakespeare stamp issued in 1864 to commemorate the tercentenary of the birth of the poet at Stratford-on-Avon, in- asmuch as it is intended to financially benefit the Dickens family, some of whose members are not in over well-to-do cir- cumstances. It is .estimated that there are twenty-four million copies of the famous authors books in circulation, and it is hoped that lovers of Dickens throughout the world will buy the centen- ary stamps which will be sold for one penny each, and affix them in such of these books as they possess. Lord Rose- bery, the Lord Chief Justice, and many distinguished personages are on the Com- mittee, under' whose auspices the stamp will be issued, and which it is hoped will bring in a considerable sum of money. Mr Alfred T. Dickens, the eldest surviv- ing son of the great novelist, recently re- turned home from Australia after an ab- sence of forty-five years. He went there in 1865, when he was twenty, and remem- bers not only his parents., biit also some of the older generation of his family. He is confident that Dickens drew some of his relatives in his books, and firmly believes that his grandfather was the original Micawber, always "waiting; for something to turn-up:" A WOMEN'S COUNCIL. It is the fashion nowadays for every cause to have its special league or associa- tion to promote, its interests, but there does not seem to be anything very practical in the suggested formation of a great national Women's Council. The idea is that such a Council, elected by women and containing only women, should be formed to discuss subjects of particular interest to women, and to pass resolutions which would have the force re- presenting the feminine opinion of the country. It is pointed out that the Church gives expression to its collective opinion through the Council to the Houses of Con- vocation, and of course if we could have a Women's Council elected by a majority of the women of this country, its resolu- tions would have such weight that Par- lament could not long! afford to disregard them. For instance, if a Council, with such authority behind t, emphatically de- clared in favour of Women's Suffrag,er it would be difficult for Parliament to trifle any longer with that problem. The diffi- culty would be in the organising and elec- tion of such a Council. To vast numbers of women, it would only suggest that antagonism of the, sexes, which is destruc- tive, and they would have nothing to do with it, whilst a central body, represent- ing only a small minority of women, would have no authority at all. # THE, OOLOUR-PHONEI AND HOBBLE GARTERS. Among novelties may be mentioned the colourphone, and hobble-garters. The first is not only a clever, but, a most use- ful invention, for which many people have sighed in the past in vain. By its means any colours may be matched by artificial light,; as perfectlyrnson the most brilliant sunny J nne, day. Business in mills and warehouses has often been at a standstill on foggy, dark days, because to match colours either in the dim daylight, or in the artificial light was impossible. The invention of the colourphone has changed | all that, and the woman who wishes to j match silks or materials, can do so per- j fectly at night, provided her bag contains one of these useful inventions. With re- gard to the hobble-garter, that very ridi- n culous "novelty."—which iis worn under the knees-—is composed of three ordinary garters, and prevents any strain on the narrow skirt, by warning its wearer when she is inclined to make too wide a step, the result of which may be a fail 1 Hap- pily the "hobble-skirt" is passing, and the demand for the "hobhle-garter" therefore does not promise to be great.
REFUSED FOR LIFE INSURANCE. BEFORE USING DOAN'S PILLS PASSED BY TWO DOCTORS AFTERWARDS. Mr. Wm. Walker, of Brae foot Place, Douglas, Lanark, N. B., who says U'When I was stooping over at my work some years ago I was suddenly seized with a violent pain in my back. It com- pletely crippled me, and I had to be help- ed home; T- couldn't walk a step. "During the next week or two I o-rew h b rapidly worse. The water was sandy and difficult to pass, although there was a re- peated desire to rellieve the bladder, and I had to keep getting up in the night. What with these disturbances and back- ache and rheumatic pains, I never knew what it was to get a good night's sleep. "I took bottle after bottle of the doctor's medicine, but it was doing me no good, and for three months I had to be idle, without any income—a serious matter for me, as I am a. married man with four children. "I was in a miserable frame of mind, feeling convinced I should never get any better, when I happened to read about Doan's Backache Kidney Pills. I thought I might as well try them, and to my great relief they soon seemed to be. doring me good. My back wasn't so bad, I could stoop. about more easily, and the limbs weren't so stiff and rheumatic. The water began to get clearer, and as I kept on with the pills they gradually removed every trace of the kidney complaint and hla,dder weakness. "That was EIGHTEEN MONTHS AGO now, and ever since then there has been no sign of my old trouble, and I have been keeping at work, regularly. I get up every morning feeling; fit and well, and think nothing of the eight miles I have to walk each day. I owe mv life to Doan s Pills, and cannot praise them too highly. "Shortly before, my breakdown I went to a. doctor to be examined for Life Insur- ance, but after a careful examination he said I had kidney disease, and he could not pass glie.

"Since Doan's Backache Kidney Pills -====--==========-==-=============- cured me, I have again been examined for Life Insurance, by two doctors, and have passed splendidly both times, although the water was carefully tested for any trace of kidney disease.

No Medical Examiner will pass anyone for Insurance who has the least trace of kidney disea.sefor every doctor knows how serious this disease is and how treacherously kidney poisons attack every vital organ of the body. Some of the symptoms that should make you suspect your kidneys are: Occasional twinges of rheumatism, backache, urinary .disorders, the appear ace of watery circles under the eyes pr u nkles, cold hands and feet, grave, au.i constant drowsy feeling.

WELSH FOLK-SONGS. MR,. HARRY EVANS AND WELSH COMPOSERS. Lecturing before the Denbigh Literary and Social Society on Fi-iday evening on "Welsh Folk-songs," Mr Harry Evans, F.Ri.C.O., said it was astonishing how the professiÍonal singers of Wales, with the notable exception of the "four Davies's," had, ignored their national songs. They had no idea of the beauty which such songs possessed in the hands of such skilled vocalists as those he' had mention- ed. They had been too long under the sway of the hymn-tunes.—(Hear, hear.) The hymn-tune in Wales had usurped the place of the national song, and it was hoped to see the time when those hymn- tunes would no longer be hawked about at fains, football matches, railway carriages, and eisteddfod platforms.—(Loud ap- plause.) Speaking of the characteristics of Welsh music, Mr Eivans said its chief was its emotional strength. As a nation, how- ever, they had been so long: in the wilder- ness, they had wailed and moaned to such an extent, that it had come to be thought that all minor tunes must of necessity be Welsh; and the overburdenino" of the hymn by lienor key tunes was one of the reasons for such a fallacy.—(Hear, hear.) It had been said of the Welshman that he was never so happy as when miserable- (laughter),—and especially when singing- funeral tunes .-(Renewed laughter.) ° It was the swing and the spirit of the tune that made all the difference in the world, and any emotional musician knew at once that certain tunes were Welsh and could, only be written and sung by Welsh peo- ple.—(Applause.) One could undergo no more painful experience, musically, than to hear "Aherystwyth" sung in England. It was not its home. It could only be sung by Welshmen, and in Wales, where it breathed the same atmosphere and could be brought up in the soil best fitted to re- ceive it. Referring to the works of Welsh com- posers, a,nd speaking with due regard to the importance of the subject, Mr Evans said that in spite of the fact of their being considered a great musical nation there still remained one. most damaging fact. When asked what had the Welsh nation contributed to the, world's great music, one would have to answer "Nothing," for the simple reason that it had contributed nothing that. had gone outside the borders of Wales. If great music had been pro- duced, it would have gone abroad—no- thing could have prevented it. The mono- tony of style, together with the pa.ucity of rhythmic force aind originality, to be found in the works of Welsh composers— and he was one of thein-(Iaughter)-NATas amazing in view of the wealth of style and rhythm to be found in Welsh national folk- songs.-(Loud applause.) This was due perhaps to the, prevalence of the hymn tune. As a, nation they had got. into a narrow groove. People clamoured for "wailing" music., with the result that Welsh composers had given way and had met the demand. Who ever heard of dance music being written by a Welsh composer?—(Laughter.) In fact. Welsh- men had been so long dawdling- in the same narrow groove of music that whole avenues had become closed to them. The material, however, was at hand the hour, too, was here, and it now wanted the man or the woman to do the work.—(Ap- plause.) Welsh solo singers, for example, were notoriously weak in rhythi-ii they preferred to loli and dawdle over the notes in order to show off the voice. They had lost their art in respect of rhythmV and counterpoint, but seemed to have retained the happy-go-lucky style of irresponsi- bility.-—(Applause and laughter.) This made him think that there was an extra- ordinary gap between the soloists of the present day and the jolly old pennillion singers of days gone by. The lecturer concluded by recommend- ing' the Welsh Folk-song; Society as one doing excellent work and one worthy of every support. DR. LLOYD WILLIAMS IN I MANCHESTER, "Welsh Folk-songs" was also the sub- ject of the Manchester Welsh National Society's meeting on Frday evening, when Dr. Lloyd Williams, of Bangor, gave another interesting lecture. He referred to Mr Frank Kidson's article on Welsh music in the new Dictionary of Music and Musacians, and said that the conclusions formed by Mr Kidson regarding the value of the older collections were very similar to those advanced by the lecturers of the Welsh Folk-song Society, though some of the statements regarding so-called "doubt- ful airs" undoubtedly required further investigation. The lecturer gave some amusing instances of the difficulties of co ectmg old folk-songs. A part of a song would be discovered in North Wales, another probably in South Wales. One version was discovered in one part of the country and a different version in an ther, A melody first recorded in Ang esey was sent in, in a, slightly different form, from LLanelly, and after- wards from Llanishen, near Cardiff. New y recovered folk-songs of various types were, described, special attention be ng given to the large number of songs in which birds figured, the blackbird, the en oo, the dove, and the seagull figuring r frequently. Instances were given of £ songs, "goat-counting" songs, ",t. ve songs, question and answer d dance melodies, and a curious s action-song1. The lecturer dwelt he symmetry of form displayed, Lien the songs were archaic in ty.
