The pro- posals of the Railway Company was the distribution at once of a large number of circulars and posters, as well as news- paper advertising, setting forth the normal conditions now prevailing.

To-night.—We cannot all of us join i Lord Kitchener's Army. We cannot all shoulder a rifle in the Territorial Force. We cannot all subscribe large amounts, or offer shelter and succour to the wounded, but we can all help to en- courage, and make brighter the sad days of our brave and gallant who sacrifice all that is dear to them—even life itself, to defend our home and liberty. To-night (Thursday) a great Patriotic Entertainment will be given at the Pavilion in aid of the Prince of Wales Fund. Surely those who cannot afford a front seat will be ready and willing to sacrifice a shilling or a six- pence in support of such an excellent cause. The cause is one that leads as to anticipate *a crowded house, and in addition to the startling display of Army and Navy Pictures from 7 to 8, special efforts are made by the marvel- lous Spinette Quintette to provide their great night of the season. Seats at 2/6 and 1/6 can be reserved at tbepavilion Box Office. We trust tti&t business places in the town will be closed as early as possible and that a great crowd of visitors and inhabitants will be carried to the Pavilion on the crest of the Patriotic Wave. God Save the King."
