I REVIEW OF PUBLICATIONS
I REVIEW OF PUBLICATIONS. I I "REVIEW OF REVIEWS. "The Progress of the World," deal- ing with the war in all its aspects, the I horrible barbarity and depraved bru- tality of the Huns, the question of "war babies," and munitions of war, and the action of the Government with regard to the drink question, is the main fea- ture in this month's issue of the "Review of Reviews." The cartoons are well up to their usual high standard, and cari- caturists depict the Germans as we see them, and the British as they are "thought to be" by the Huns. A well- w ritten larticlf^by j Vr. R. /J. JesjBurun on "Dutch Defence" will assuredly be read with utmost interest, inasmuch as Hol- land might easily have shared the same fate as Belgium. "German diplomacy has blundered so badly in the case of Belgium," Dr. Jesserun writes, "that an attack on Hol- land is not outside the possibilities of the immediate future, and the recent threat to Dutch shipping may mean an attempt to over-ride the neutrality of Holland." "After the W,ar—the need for a League of. Peace," is a really bril- liant and brainy contribution; whilst "Will Belgium Revive'?"' by Emile j Cammaerts is no whit less interesting. "The Future of Africa, is another ex- cellent article. Leading articles drawn from the reviews, discussing economic issues, and revealing the true inward- ness of the worker's motives in striking improved conditions, together with "The Victims of Kultur; "Instru- ments of Death"; "Racial Rivalry"; "Labour's Demands"; etc., provide un- surpassable reading, matter. The "Re- view of Reviews" is published at Bank Buildings, Kingsway, London. W.C., I price Gd. -—— I "THE LADY'S WORLD." j The Mav number of "The Lady's World," No. 200 (Messrs.

I "Tho Life and Opinions of Robert j Roberts" are continued in the May number of "The Welsh Outlook."

"Art. and Life" is dealt. with- by Sir Henry Jones. Ll.D., Lift. n., profes- sor of moral philosophy in the Univer- sity of Glasgow: whilst. "The Sword" is a prettily written contribut ion by T. Ifuws Davies. With so much having bean written of late with, reference to the (Vntral Welsh Board, the article upon that body by "Z" is of significant i and timely interest. A realistic sketch of Captain Thomas James, an ancient mariner, is given by J.K.F.: Mr. C. Bryner .tones. M.Sc.. writes about Welsh agriculture. Evan Evans. Swansea, refers to Anglican Lessons for Fire Churchmen and D.C.T. gives some interesting particulars about Rheim> and its Cathedral. "The Uni- versity and Theology" is ablv dealt with by a Re\.

Raphael Tuck and .Sons, from the original picture iby Mr. 'Solomon J. Solomon, R.A., was approvingly com- mented upon by her Majesty, who evinced great interest in the original British Zag-Zaw Puzzles and post- cards depicting the work of the British Red Gross Society just issued by the firm in aid of that institution. A post- card representing a cute little baby doll figure, with the title "Fums up and keep to the front, was smilingly taken away iby her Majesty as a souvenir of her visit.

MOTOR TRIPS FOR BARRY WOUNDED SOLDIERS. 1 A number of wounded soldiers at the Red Cross Detaining Hospital in Dock View-road, Barry Docks, were given a motor drive and tea on Monday last, through the kindness of Mrs. J. Lamb, Dock View-road. On Tuesday a further hatch was afforded a similar treat through the generosity of Mr. J. Marston, the local secretary, and other officials of the Barry Branch of the National Sailors and Firemen's Union. In each case the "Tommies" spent a highly enjoy- able time. and were extremely grateful for the hospitality extended to them.

LOCAL PLACES OF PUBLIC AMUSEMENT
LOCAL PLACES OF PUBLIC AMUSEMENT. THEATRE ROYAL. BARRY. The fare provided at this exquisitely cosy, palatial house of amusement is particularly attractive, and each even- ing large audiences witness as fine an exhibition of animated pictures as it is possible to see.

It is a stirring production of a review of the British (naval and military), Colonial, Indian, and Allied Troops in their uni- Jprms, "naval drills, with field guns, and patriotic choruses, and the elegant and magnificent scenery adds the finish- ing touch to the piece, which is enacted by a number of Cadoxton children, un- der the supervision of M r. C. W. Sel- kirk. The engagement of Billy For- der, the famous comedian and eccen- tric long shoe dancer, was a signal suc- cess, and a gigantic picture programme was headed by a weird drama, "The Madman's Secret." For Thursday. Friday and Samr-i day "Frustrated" will be the pictorial: feature, and the re-appearance of Billy Forder. and "Briton's Defenders." will be welcomed. j A screaming two-reel Keystone, en- titled.

BOMB HINTS. II » basdful of eommoa nil b iddtd tt the lining water it keep tie clotkee how freesamg until dry. Ban of soap should be stacked up aa children build houses of wooden bricki, n that air may get freely to as much of the surface as possible. If new shoes lift at the heel this can be easily remedied by rubbing a little soft soap on the heel of the stocking or on the heel of the shoe. To brighten a mirror rub with a dean cloth dipped in a cream made of whitening and cold water, to which a few drops of ammonia have been added; polish well with vld newspapers. A good plan during the winter months is to put a bundle of wood and a shovel of ooals on top of the kitchen range before going to bed. In the morning they are quite warm and dry, and the fire burns up in half the usual time. d To keep the breakfast hot for one, put the bacon or chop on a warm plate, cover with another warm plate, and stand the teapot on top. This will keep it hot for quite a long tune. To renew velvet, cover the face of a hot flat-iron with a wet cloth; hold the wrong side of the velvet next to this cloth until thoroughly steamed, then brush the pile with a soft brush. If you want your lamps to give a good light, the wicks should be changed every three months at least. The old wicks, if cut into two-inch lengths and stored in a tin, make excellent fire-lightems. Linseed oil is excellent for cleaning var- nished grained paint. It should be applied with a piece of clean soft flannel, rubbed well in, and polished with a soft duster., And only the very tiniest drop of oil should be used. After washing the hair, it should hang down the back for a few hours at least. It is a bad plan to wash it at night, as sleep- ing packs the hair together tightly too soog after the shampoo. t When a gentleman's silk hat becomes spotted with rain or ruffled hold it before a fire and rub the nap firmly and evenly in the right direction with a soft velvet pad, and it will look almost as well as if it had been ironed. —— ——"
FOB BilY'S FEET. The time for changing the knitted boota to regular leather shoes, with socks, entirely) depends upon whether the child is forward or not. unless there is any tendency to weakness in the ankles strap shoes are best, both indoors and out; where ankles a.re weak, boots which hold the feet pretty tight are better. Some shops make a special line in babies' boots, and you are likely to get better value from them than in a shop where Ill" particular attention is paid to what baby; requires. BXSZBVB STOCK. There are so many occasions in which the Housewife is called upon to provide for the unexpected guest or guests that the wise woman will make a point of keeping by her certain condensed and tinned foods that can be dished up in a trice and require either no cooking at all or very little. The reserve store should oontain some of the ezNttllent condensed soups either in powder or cake form that are now obtainable at almost any, grocer's; a tin (or glass) of tongue or. brawn; some potted meat for sandwiches, a tin of tomatoes; another of sardines; and eome rice that can be quickly cooked, To WASH SILVER. The following mixture is excellent Iw washing silver: Take equal parts of common yellow soap and whiting. Melt the soap, then add the whiting, and make it into a cake. Apply it with a piece of flannel and piouty of warm water, then well rinse and dry, and the silver will not only look beauti- fully brignt, but will not require cleaning! so often. We always use this aoap for re- moving egg et?ina from spoons and find i? invaluable. WORBT BBIHOS IKDIGISTION. Worry, it has been proved, has a most de- pressing effect upon that hypersensitive organ the stomach, which at such times be- comes a most unwilling and laggard ser* vant. Indeed, it is safe to say that unless encouraged by a cheerf* temper and bright, or at least hopeful, thoughts, the stomacu will play truant or sulk and do no work which it can shirk. The physiological ex- planation of this is the close alliance of the great sympathetic nerves, which are worse than the telegraph for carrying bad news; the worry and anxiety which depress the brain produce simultaneously a semi- paralysis of the nerves of the stomach, gasfcrio juices will not flow, and-presto I there is indigestion.
