I w-as remi oded yesterday of a }¡tlo in- r-ulent that I witnessed in the House of Commons in 1914 (says a correspondent in the Evening News."). The House had just passed the Home Rul Act that -s now on the Statute-book, and immediately after that historic division John Redmonri followed his custom of going up behind the Ladies' Gallery to fetch Mrs. Red- nond. He was stopped in the corridor !'y a slight grey-haired old !adv. who begged to introduce herself. as she wished ft -— —- T r I whole-heartedly to congratulate him. it was Lady Frederick Cavendish, widow of lord Frederick Cavendish, who was so brutally assassinated in Phcenix Park in 1882- She addeel as she left John Red- mond, "My husband would have been so pleased to bare congratulated you." Mr Redmond, who was quite overcome, told me afterwards if was the most touching incident in bis political life.

As you see above I am placing before yontbe second of the set of pictures which you are invited to colour in con- nection with the competition which started last week. The prizes were then mentioned, but we will repeat the conditions in the course of this week, so that any who may be able to obtain back numbers, and who liuve not already started the colouring, may have a chance of coming in, if they can obtain back numbers from their jf/ienrls and relatives. ? For to-day wo will confine ourselves to this competition. On Monday we will, no doubt, be able to return to our little letters and 6toryettes, save and except ,as the lawyers 6ay) that we will call lipon Glyn Protlitroe (age 13), who is not unknown to you, to recite a story:— THE CRY FROM THE WARES. I Le, 's go home by the cliffs, old chap," pleaded' Arthur, it's ever hd dreary goirt £ home by the roadway; we might iiml some gulls' nests, too." Seeing the 'undecided look on hits brother's face, he "Jaek Grey brought home a ). .< of ckk« the other day. and le v.. found them all by the cliffs." It will soon be getting dark," answered George, but I suppose we must go home that way, as you so particularly want to/' It was a chilly, grey evening with a strong wind blowing in from the sea, and the two boys hurried along, hoping to get a few gulls' eggs before dark, but when they arrived at the, spot it was so dark and ¡ misty that they could not get anything. As the boys were beginning to go on ¡ again, a suddon call startled theip; it was a faint cry for help. "It must be | somebody in trouble on the water," ex- I. chimed George; "let us 'go and tell the coastguard." The two boys ran down to the coastguards' station and told the chief about the cry they had heard. He then took his telescope and scanned the water, with the result that he espied a struggling object .which, he declared, was the person who had been calling. He thon called two other coastguards, and they rowed out to the man and brought him back to terra firraa. That. night Arthur and George thanked God they had come home by way of the cliffs, for they Jinii, unlotibtedly. saved a life that even-1 ing <
The Day's Gossip. Leader Office, Saturday. The weathor made it a home festival for most people, but judging by the roars I that came across the quiet town yesterday from the Vetch Field, a goodly number made light of the rain find risked a wet- I ting for King Sport's sake. The majority, however, made it an indoor celebration- revelling in extra hours in bed, without fear of ministerial frowns and diacoiial reproof. What mattered the weather when the fire glowed red and the good and tried friends met around the hearth, and the children played and >ang and showed off-their Christmas gifts! A ,o& for the weather upon such daY5! I vas out for a quarter of an hour yesterday afternoon, and I don't think I have ever remembered such deserted streets. I. Ruddwr Than the Rector.

Man! it was great to see I M:m! it wa* great to dol It's a cot. and a hospital ward for nip, But I'll tell them in Blighty wherevei I be, How the Guards came through. i The Floral Dance. I The glens and the hollows of the moor I lay in the deep shadows of the hills; and through the darkness the winding stream, I which possibly at its source nourished some cottage garden, leaped like streaks of silver, in miniature cascades, .from rock f.o rock. It was the time of the Harvest 'lfoon! Day was closing over the hills- and we were, well just a trifle peevish, for wn had evidently lost our way on' that bleak common (some hundre4 years ago the haunt of highwaymen), twelve to six- teen miles of it. between Cheltenham and Oxford. Suddenly we came. at the bottom of a steep hill. into a scene of revelry. It was an old-world fair, and the I environment was in keeping with the revelry. It misrht have been a hundred years ago. The Floral Dance." that wonderfullv descriptive Cornish Fair song, most have been written after having witnessed such a primitive festival as this. We enquired our bearings from, some of the onn in fly-dressed rustics, and were directed to a Pickwickian half- timbered inn, where we had every assist- ance to "do ourselves well!" and latev I participated m the iovs of the fair. In the iii6rningz we picked up the high road for London some miles farther on. I never lipar the Floral Dance but what I think of that out-of-the-way village on that bleak common.—" Roamer Boulogne and the English. i The military authorities have under- taken a full inquiry into the curioiio storiew which have been current with re- garet to Boulogne and the troops stationed in the district; hut it is satisfa-ctory to know through independent ini-estigationp that the stories told have been generally exaggerated, and that the worse cf them -i rt- certainly nntrue. For generation? Boulogne has been a town partifularb- hospitnhle to our race. Once it afforded an asylum to people whose misfortune,, may he summed up in the immortal say inil of the, exispetatc-rl whist expert- They are there because they would not lead trumps." More recently it had at tractions for people with large families I nnd slender means, who could live there cheaply and pleasantly. No doubt whore there jare troops with little to do there will always be occasional incidents," and it ie the rule in all towns that the whole of the blame for any excesses shnll be put on the oiitlanders." There is all the more reason that every complaint should he sifted thoroughly, and that no opportunity should be allowed for the growth of distorted rumour. Les Grandes Hallos. I I One morning at seven o'clock, writes Roamer," I arrived at the fish market of Les Grandes Halles, the great markets of Paris, of which I have previously written. I was engulfed in rivers of fish, while revendeuses (retailers) and trawlers' agents mitde my head split with their cries. An unceasing stream of cases of fish flowed into the market. All the shades of/the ocean were there, coral fed, milky pearl, the various blues, pell-mell- out of countless fishing nets, out of the mysterious depths of the deep waters. There were congers, huge fish, still living, that oould almost bite a man's leg off! Rays, with their superb fleshy backs. Dog fish horrible! Ough! their big mouths wide open-gapin.g liko some Chinese idol. Then separated, in a sort of piscatorial Hotet Ritjc. were the elite varieties—the salmon, with their bodies of spangled silver; the mullets, like gold fish; and finally, bringing up the rear of the procession, freshly-boiled shrimps, staring one out of countenance, with their millions of jet black eyes. And the tohsters !-hJack !pincning away for dear life at anything within range. I felt like pinching myself# to see if I was really awake—or was it lobster salad overnight P John Roberts. The news that John Roberts is dead will bring a flood of memories to many minds. There was a time when we all regarded him as the greatest billiard- player who ever was or who ever could be. For' years he was invincible, though he had not quite the perfect style of Stevenson, the delicacy of Reece, or the uhcanny knowledge of the angles of the table that belonged to the erratic Billy Mitchell. But John was almost pre- eminent at every point of the game, and he had the real billiards temperament as well developed as ib is in Inman. His confidence in himself was unbounded, and the consequence was that his op- ponents were always inclined to look upon the task of beating him as hopeless. He will long be remembered as the most dig- nified, the most eourtly, the most auto- cratic, and the nioq, attractive of all players: but hi-g business-like qualities, hnfortnnately. were confined to the bil- liard-room. He made a fortune, but could not keep it: and the last few years have I not been as comfortable for him, perhaps as he deserved, who had given so much J pleasure to such multi-tudes.
AMUSEMENTS. I Round the Swansea Picture Halls and Theatres. I EMPIRE. I I The renowned Elgar Hudson -Quintette j are paying another, isit to the Swansea j Empire next week (where they head the I list of attractions), bringing their delight- ful musical combination of violin, voice, flute, piccolo, 'cello and piano renderings, Each member of this ensemble carries ¡ high musical honours, and the true artistry exemplified by the whole, provide I a rare entertainment. Chas. Cohan will prove another attractive item. This artiste has just the same astonishing vocabulary of broken English to delight, the general public, whilst it is quite true that the greatest admirera of this quaint Cttmedian are of the race at which he so I persistently pokes good humored fun. W; Trombetta, a Italo-French comedy duo. present their latest successes, and liillv justify ih-oir prominent position o-n the biJ. A very clever and original act that I will delight both old and young, is due to I be presented next week by Murphy and Mack Maggie Benson, described as the original maid at the piano"; Harry Barclay, the popular light comedian; and Spitari, the R.A.F. ventriloquist," togetherC with the latest news pictures I complete the bill. THE ELYSIUM. I I At the ever-popular Elysium, High- street, Swansea, an extra special holiday attraction has been secured. A famous melodrama entitled The Still Alarm will be screened. The film shows an actual fire brigade turn out. the engine's dash through the darkened streets, the fire-, the daring rescue scenes, etc. So i or six days next week patrons will have the opportunity of seeing this remark- able film. "Elmo the Mighty," the great serial film which grows more excit- ing every week, will also be screened, and some excellent comedies. Again for the week-end the programme will be of the highest order, and besides "The Still Alarm," a powerful drama e..litied "Fields of Honour," the splendid Houdmi serial film, and some very funuy comedies will also be screened. THEATRE ROYAL. i For the coming week the management of the Royal Theatre have secured about cne of the finest programmes that have ever been screened. For the first half Panthea," an adaptation of quite a famous play, by Monckton Hotte. The story opens in Moscow, but the scene changes very rapidiy, iirst to England, and then to Paris, where the main action tekes place. It is the story of a girl who knew the meaning of love of a wife ready t.) sacrifice herself to save her husband's life. The dramatic situation, especially those which occur as we draw nearer the climax, are powerful, and afford Norma Talmarge an opportunity for giving us some acting as fine as anything else she has ever done. Many scenes, especially ■those towards the end, are remarkable for their intensity, and are likely to consider- ably enhance Miss Talmadge's record of outstanding characterisations. The second feature is the new mutual star, Jackie Saunders, in a five-reel love drama, Bab the episode 7 of Pathe's great serial, The Lightning Raider," featuring Pearl White; two-reel comedy, entitled The Betrayal of Maggie." For Thursday another great programme will screened. The star feature is A Marked Man," featuring Harry Carey. The story, like the star. is marked with the virility of the West.' Also Elsie Ferguson, in His Parisian Wife"; Winkle in "Ask Papa"; episode 13. The Silent Mystery." Monday, 5th January, Sessvt Hayakawa. in Hearts in Pawn." PICTURE HOUSE. I At the Picture House next week, for the first-three days, "Paid in Full," a strong, compelling picture, with Pauline Frederick at her 1)(>1.(, will be screened. Pauline Frederick in' tne past has been featured in many a picture that has made a hit with the public, but it is doubtful if any of them can compare with Paid in Full" in dramatic strength. In fact, there is more dramatic intensity in this than any two of her old pictures. The story is deeply interesting and impressive. It arouses contempt for the villain and sympathy for the heroine, and as it winds up according to the wishes of tne epec- la tors, it leaves a feeling of satisfaction and content. The second picture is a I fcl rong moral play in five reels, featuring Miss Jackie Saunders. Never Too Old," by the king of comedy producers. Mack Sennett. It will be interesting for, cinoma patrons to note that the entire output of this great comedy producer has been secured for the forthcoming year. I Pathe's Animated Gazette and another interesting series of the Marvels of the Universe will complete the programme- For the week-end Boots," a Paramount picture, when Dorothy Gish's attractive comedy dominates the picture. J CARLTON. "False Faces, à. Thomas H. Ince special picture, which may be seen at the Carlton Cinema on Monday, Tues- day and Wednesday next, has, apart from its merits, two special advantages which will appeal to all. The first is that the principal part is played by Henry B. Wathall, one of the most popu- lar screen actors, who became famous for his pourtrayal of The Little Colonel in "The Birth of a Nation." The other is that it has been produced by Thomas H. Ince, whose fame is universal. Supporting Henry B. Wathall in this photoplay there are Mary Anderson, Thornton Edwards, and several other screen players of similar repute..iere is a strong love interest in the story. Thel-second feature is Bessie Barriscalc in "Two Gun Betty," a Western comedy drama, a succession of comic and tragic situations. Thursday, Friday and Sat- urday: Ali Bab& and the d Sat- ThieN-es featuring the great Fox Kid- I dies; Pauline Frederick in her latest picture entitled The Fear Woman Marvels of the Universe," and Pathe's Gazette, with screaming comedy, com- pletos the star programmes.
