I THE OMINOUS ROYAL PILLOW. Woman's Weekly says that the Queen has devoted not a little time for months past to the making of comforts for her sick and wounded soldiers, and she has infected her ladies-in-waiting with the craze. The royal pillows, the idea of which originated at Sandringham, commended themselves to her Majesty, who made several with her own hands. These are marked with a special embroidered V.R., and it is needless to say that they are much prized in the various hospitals which have received them. Much as the pillows in general are appreciated, the pillow made by the Sovereign is in each case the grand one but Tommy has begun to observe that the honour of rfeceiving the Queen's pillow, is accorded to the most serious cases, and it is looked upon as an evil omen to get it. A week or two ago, while a nurse was smoothing the bedclothes of a restless soldier, she chanced to give a straightening touch to the pillows. The poor fellow awoke, and before he had fully regained his scattered senses, said Oh for Heaven's sake, do anything you like with me, but don't give me the pillow!"
