THE Sultan of Turkey does not like the dark, and every night, not only his apartments in the palace, but the surrounding gardens as well, are flooded with light. He is generally read to sleep by his brother or a favourite servant, his favourite books being sensational novels. If he dreams an interpreter is summoned directly the Sultan wakes, and the meaning of the dream is explained to him. A CURIOUS defence of the much-abused tall hat is made by a correspondent of the Morning Post. On one occasion he was talking to the builder of a house in course of erection in the City, when a shower of brick fell, one of which struck the builder's top hot with great violence, but was by the hat prevented from fracturing his skull. On another occasion the correspondent himself was passing with his wife by a railway receiving house, when a case was toppled on to them, and the hat acting as a buffer, saved them both from injury. On yet another accasion he was shot violently out of a cab, and the hat broke his fall, and prevented a serious accident. From which it would appear that the tall hat has its uses. THE 30-ton armature, which lay in the Sheffield Canal for so long a time, and was ultimately taken to its destination at the Kelham Island Electric Power Station, is now being rebuilt and re-insu- lated. This has been rendered necessary by its long immersion in the water.
