A WORK FOR THE WORLD.—A book of 4,600 pages (Kelly's Post Office London Directory) is probably the best evidence possible of the enormous commercial activity of the metropolis. It is not less eloquent of the colossal task which Messrs. Kelly's Directories, Ltd., undertake from year to Near, and the great accuracy dis- played is certainly a marvel of organisation. Nothing in the directory line is omitted, nothing is over-stated, but with almost malig- nant monotony the scroll is writ. Streets, mer- chants, trades, law and Parliamentary, even Court particulars, are given in oriefest fashion-the information simply, no more and no less. A wealthy merchant prince, with his country seat and a motor-car--the best present-day evidence of affluence—may find his name bang up against the name of some cat's meat dealer. An aristo- crat may jostle a coster, and so on and so forth. But nobody complains, and every up-to-date business man, not only in London, but through- out the whole country, even the whole world, is repeatedly thankful in the course of a year to the publishers of this valuable commercial compilation. The Directory has now reached its 108th year of issue, but it bears no evidence of senile decay. Rather it seems to renew its youth like the eagle leastways, it has the at- tributes of the snowball which gathers substance as it rolls, and it has also the qualities of the iron that has been hammered into finest steel..
