,p. f O v 7 T 7 r;j\ T* TJt Ill LfeiMjii ILHILI. -u_- [From Our Special Correspondent.] Most politicians lntvo up tbrir sleeves plans for reforming t 'i,c, House of Lords. There :s a great ,,1"1 el"-hubs: va. about them, but the iin-,<>; ■; ,r. is 5cnera re- forming-. The ea^crn-i f?s th v»'hich mem of a I I d c?t )"ill so much is ouit-e rcmas T;ve dii-K-ulty will J be to arrive at. a c< inne of reorganisation | which shall meet with the approval of all j who desire to retail. <,i Sccond Chamber. It will not be dene e.' .i r, and it. is a tafik for the beet minds arid +he finest ip. It may be that for the present "the (iovcni- melt will net im hm" a plan, but in the meantime I.c-.d How; ry means that the Peers themselves shall m»t lot the "goldeu moment" slip. He ha» g-iven notice that on t March 14 he will move "That the House do resolve itse]f into a Committee to consider the best means of reforming its exitft'ng organisation, so as Ld and efficient- Seeond Chamber." It is evidence 'of the development of public opinion on this matter that the proposals of the Committee which reported less tham two years ago, and over which Lord Rosebcry presided, are already generally admitted to be entirely in- adequate. Rumours of a referendum on the question of the House of Lords Veto have been in the air lately, and it has been suggested that it is the only solution for the pre* nt difficult situation. If the Government did decide uponi such a course it could only be done by passing a Bill through both Houses of Par- liament. The referendum is in force in Switzerland, and it is interesting to note that the results have shown that the people are always less inclined for changes in the law than the Legislature. In the Canton of Zurich, for instance, where there are a great number of factory operatives, the people have rejected measures for limiting the duration of labour to twelve hours a day; protecting women who work in factories; forbidding the employment of school chil- dren regulating the relations between masters and men, and making the former liable for accidents; and a number of other Bills which might have been supjWflcd popu- lar. A reason for this attitude is suggested by Sir iienry Maine, who says: "It is pos- sible, by agitation or exhortation, to pro- duce im the mind of the average citizen a vague impression that he desires a particular change. But, when the agitation has settled' down on the drege, when the excitement has died away, when the subject has been threshed out, when the law is before him in all its detail, he is sure to find in it much that is likely to disturb his habits, his ideas, his prejudices, or his interests; and so. in the long run he votes 'No' to" every propc.fcv' In Switzerland, at any rate, the referendum does not appear to carry them much "forrarder." A new play by Mr. George Bernard Shaw is a notable event nowadays, and causes almost as much excitement a a Cabinet crisis. The critics have been running a-tilt against the great "G. B. S. over his new production, "Misalliance." They do not know quite how to tske it. It is not at qll the ordinary sort of play, and any visitor from the Provinces who goes to see it, ex- cepting to see a straight story, with what is called "a strong love interest," will con- sider that he has wasted an evening. "Mis- alliance," like another stage production vif Mr. Shaw's, "Getting Married," is a de- bate; but unlike "Getting Married" it is not a debate on one subject. Not by any manner of means, indeed. The characters talk about anything and everything. How they talk! There seems to be no reason why they should ever stop talking, only that the curtain must fall in time to allow the audience to get away to their homes in com- fort. The talk is so brilliant that no admirer of Mr. Shaw's work would think of leaving his seat until there was no more to be heard. The critics niay say it is not a play, but Shaw enthusiasts consider it un- commonly good entertainment. Those who like the usual kind of dramatic performance had better go and see something else. A lady correspondent informs mo tkat many beautiful dresses were worn at the opening Court of the season. On the whole it was noticeable that gowns were more uni- form in colouring and elaborate in design than for some time past, and softly draped effects have taken the place of the elegant outlines and gorgeous embroideries lately so popular. White and the palest tints were greatly in evidence, and the majority of those who preferred to appear in the stronger coloure seemed to have chosen some vivid shade of blue relieved with silver. In- deed, there were few gowns into which silver in aome fhape or form was not introduced, and the court trains are, again of rich and substantial materials, generally soft satin, and elaborately trimmed, and lined. Mrs. Asquith wore a dress that was in striking contrast with these lighter ones, being of purple satin veiled with black chiffon embroidered with purple beads and in a Russian design. The front of Ike bodice was also richly embroidered, and the train of purple velvet lined with royal blue added to the general effect of sombre stateliness. Mrs. Herbert Gladstone and Mrs. Winston Churchill stood as examples of widely different periods of costume, the former wear- ing a gown of flowered brocade in the Louis Quinze style, while the latter was severely Greek in the palest, unadorned pink satin charmeuse. Two of the most beautiful dresses seen were worn by Madame and Mile. Kato, wife and daughter of the Japanese Ambassador. The elder lady wore econ i satin draped with bright blue chiffon em- feroidsrtd ia tons ban 1'-iUa ggvgTj nio, ,at iridescent sequins. The bodice of silver. lace was adorned with bands of gold, embroidered with shaded pearls, and the train was of gold tissue veiled with net, enriched with heavy Oriental cabochoxis, and bordered with old Italian lace. Mile. Kato wore a tunic of coral-coloured chiffon over white, with a border of erystrl embroidery. Her train was of the same vivid shade, softly draped with Dink and white chiffon. Mrs. Austen Cham- berlain, over her robes of ivory crepe-de- chine, embroidered with wheat-ears in dia- monds, wore a train of bright geranium-red, lined with a paler shade of rose, and the Countess of Macclesfield, presented on her marriage, also chose to appear in cream- colour, richly embroidered, her soft satin gown and train of merdis velvet being almost covered with a raised design of honey- suckle, in natural colourings. It will be welcome news to concert-goers that three extra Symphony Concerts are to be given by the Queen's Hall Orchestra, on March 12, April 9, and April 23. At the first of these Herr Moriz Rosenthal will play, and at the second Herr Richard Strauss, who is just now the most talkc-d-of musical person- ality of the day, will conduct some of his own compositions. The programme at the eighth concert on Saturday afternoon was of very great interest, and included many attractive items. The Symphony was Saint- Saens's No. 3 in C minor, in which the organ and two pianofortes combined with the orchestra. There was also Sultana's fine tone-poem, "Yy&ehrad," but the gem of the afternoon was Debussy's delightful nocturne, "Fetes." Professor Hugo Becker played Schumann's violencello concerto, and Miso Elena Gerhardt sang very beautifully. A. E. M.
ARSENIC IN PANCAKES. A verdict of "Accidental death" was re- turned at Manchester at an inquest on the bodies of two men employed at Shudehill Market, who became fatally ill on Shrove Tues- day after eating pancakes. Three other men who partook of the pancakes were also taken ill, but recovered. It was stated that on finding the batter for the pancakes was too thin one of the men added from a tin of powder what he believed to bo flour, but which, upon subsequent investigation, proved to be rat poison containing arsenic. The poison, which had been left by a traveller. ha been on the shelf for years.
ON THE CHURCH TOWER. There has been & remarkable sequel to the disappearance of William C eriiell, the verger of All SainW. Church, Burton-on- Trent. Carnell, who started the heating appara- tus in the church for the service early on Sunday, was missing for the remainder of the day. On Monday he staggered into his home with several wounds in his throat, wrist, and leg. He was taken to the in- firmary, where he lies in a dangerous con- I dition. He had apparently spent all day and night on the roof of the church tower, where a blood-stained razor and a looking- glass were found, but how he descended the tower steps in such a condition is a mys- tery. -— ♦
CLIMATE AND RELIGION. Bishop Montgomery, preaching at Christ Church, Down-street, London, on Sunday, said the besetting limitation of Englishmen was that they could not see the unseen; it was a racial defect. He hoped they would not think him mad when he laid down this as a fa.e"ttha.t the nearer one lived to the Equator the easier it was to see God. and the farther one lived from the Equator the harder it was to see God, The nearer to the Equator, however, the .greater was the gap between faith and con- duct. On the Equator there was a great divorce between conduct and faith.

HOWTODESTKOY THEPAMP1PFF 6 £ »M BT A SPECIALIST. That the lasdrnf germ is pespo»#ibie f«r amriy an the diseases to which the scalp ia fceir, as well as for baldness and prematura grey kair, is a woll-ksiawa fact, but when we realiae that it is also indirectly responsible for many etthe worst cases of catarrh and consumption, we appreciate the importance of any agent that will destroy its power. We are therefore par- ticularly pleased to give herewith the prescrip- tion which an eminent scientist and specialist States he has found, after repeated tests, to completely destroy the dandruff germ in from one to three applications. This prescription can be made up at home, or any efeemist will put it up for you:—3 ounces Bay Rum, I ounce Lavona de Composse, J dram Menthol Crystals. J Mix thoroughly, and after standing half an hour it is ready for use. Apply night and morning, rubbing into the scalp with finger- ,tips. If you wish it perfumed, add half tea- spoonful of French Fon Fleur perftime, which unites perfectly with the other ingredients. This preparation is not dye, but is un- equalled for promoting a growth of n«w hair, and for restoring grey hair to its original colour.
