"Sympathy is two hearts tugging at the same load.".
Mrs. Cook, wife of Professor Cook, of Christohurch, is in Wellington, staying at Miss Morton's, Golder's Hill. Miss Amy Ledger, of Nelson, who has been visiting Chri^tchurch, is a guesfc of Mrs. Thos. Ward. Mrs. Andrew Anderson, of Christchurch, is staying with Mrs. Gray, Keiburne. Mrs. George- Norbury, who underwent a somewhat serious operation in the Kensington-street private hospital on Wednesday, is progressing very favourably. Mrs,. R. A.' Wright, who has been appointed a delegate from the Central Branch of the W.C.T.U., will leave on Tuesday morning for New Plymouth to attend the annual convention of the Union. Miss Rita- Simpson is staying with Mrs. Vallance, of Kahumingi. Commander Orme-Webb * and Mrs. Orme-Webb left for Sydney yesteiday by the Ulimaroa. They are returning to England after some months' stay in New Zealand. Mrs. Nicholls and her niece, Miss Fulton, of Dunedin, left yesterday for Sydney and Japan. Miss Kathleen Williamson, of Auckland is a guest 01 Mrs. Chaffey's. Hataitai. Mrs. Kane, who has been in Gisborne, is back in Wellington. Again yesterday the end of the wharf was crowded with people seeing the Ulimaroa off. It was a scene of confusion, and no place at all for the nervous person. Indeed, with a possibility of being crushed beneath heavy portmanteaux, perilously carried by porters with no regard for* anyone in the way of their progressj and of being trampled underfoot by prancing horses that looked elephantine to excited eyes, there is ho time for the farewell tear or the effective parting sentiment — the well-turned speech which everyone yearns to make, and which is never on tho tip of the tongue. As a lule, the most banal are ail that rise to the surface, and there is visible relief; on the part of both farewelled and farewellers, when the vessel swings off. Yesterday there were a large contingent of departing Wellingtonians. ■ Mrs. Stott, Mr. and Mrs. Izard, and Miss Nora Stuart all left to catch the German liner, Mr. Tom Young went off for some months to Japan, Mrs. and Miss Putnam returned to Bendigo, and Mrs. Eliot Warburton went to Sydney. There ought to be a distinct profit in the many threepences collected, but it would not be at all surprising if there were not some time or other a serious accident. At one point yesterday, when there was a block at the gangway, and even passengers, indignantly waving their tickets, were refused on board, two or threei women grew terrified, and threatened to faint, and one small child was nearly injured. One of the many farewell teas that have been given for Mrs. Bristow was at Mrs. Thomas Ward's yesterday. It was a hot morning, and the cool shady rooms were restful after the glare of the street. They were fragrant,,, too, with flowers and tall pink, lilies -and" delicately lovely lace-bark blossom,' and, in the diningroom graceful sweet' ,p l eas__and stately belladonna lilies, all veiled in a- bronze mist of native beech leaves) exquisitely harmonising- with the red and gold of the old wedgwood china. Both tbr beech and the lace-bark blossom were got froni the lovely garden at the back, where there are all sorts of unexpected beauties and combinations, a splendid gum tree elbowing the lace-bark trees in lull glory of delicate bloom, and tree ferns sheltering homely vegetables, while from each point on tho winding path, are wonderful views of harbour and hills, dimly grey-blue yesterday with smoke of many bush fires, and nearer, the rich variety of trees and shrubs, with red roofs set in the soft green. It was the very pleasaritest of teas, and all the guests wished Mrs. Bristow and her daughters the happiest of trips. Miss Nora Stuart, who left yesterday by, the Ulimaroa to catch the German boat, was among those present. The Royal New Zealand Artillery, who have been stationed at the Tauherenikau Camp of Instruction, held a very enjoyable dance in the Town Hall, Featheiston, 011 Thursday last. The hall was tastefully decorated with flags and foliage, and the excellent arrangements were in the hands of a committee ' from the Artillery and a ladies' committee composed of Featherston ladies. Songs were rendered during the evening by Mr. Tinney and Gunners Stewart and Skinner. The ladies' ■committee consisted of Mesdames Tait, Hoskins, Robertson, and Misses Hodder, Tait, and England ; and the artillery committee of Bom. Hcrwood, Bom.-Tpr. Johnson, Gun. Leech, Skinner, Herv.-ood, Prestney, Harvey, Baker, Croft, Watson, and Driver Rowe. THANKS FOR PUBLISHING HAIR FORMULA. REMARKABLE RESULTS DESCRIBED BY READER. Dear Editor. —I want to tbank you for the remarkable results I have secured by usine; the hair formula which appeared in a- recent issue of your valued paper. As directed, I went to my chemist and had him put up 302 Bay "Rum, loa Lavona de Composee, and dram Menthol Crystals. He told me that this preparation was unequalled for hair ana scalp troubles, but I did not look for the astonishing benefits which followed. For a long time I had been troubled witn dandruff and falling hair, and my hair had • become so thin and lifeless that I feared I would become completely bald. I applied the tonic twice a day, rubbing it into the scalp with the finger-tips, and you can imagine my delight when at the end of the third day I found that the dandruff and scalp itching had completely disappeared ; within two weelcs the falling out had entirely ceased, and now at the end of eight weeks the tMn places are covered with a thick growth of hair tiearly six inches long. For the benefit of others who suffer as I once suffered I would suggest that you publish the formula again. The preparation was also used by my husband, who was not only delighted with its refreshing and invigorating'etfect on the scalp, but. says "it is" the best hair tonic he has ever used."— Gratefully yours, TINA H. PItATT. Note.— The formula mentioned in the above letter was published some time ago. Readers are cautioned to avoid applying where hair is not desired.— Advt.

The bride and the bridegroom left by the Southern express, en route to Canterbury, where the honeymoon is to be spent. Hero is an account. in the San Francisco Chronicle of Tetrazzini singing in the open air to the poor Italians : — I have only a confused and emotional recollection of an event that is too big to grasp at once. It is all like a brilliant dream that leaves one a little dazed upon awakening and only comes back bit by Mashing bit. I know that I heard a roar that broke into a long-drawn thunder, like the pounding of storm waves upon a pebbled beach, as the spot-lil figure moved to the raised dais from which she sang. I remember listening to the words cf a speaker and then feeling a hush clear to the distant edges of the ciowd. Then caino those spiritpiercing, sweet, su'eet tones that fluttered, lose, and floated into the enamoured night air, carrying peace and good will to the Christmas throng, speeding a message to the whole 'world, and pumping the love of a greafe-souled woman through th& valves of every heart. When the last note' died on the darkness the multitude,' as I looked across it from the platform, seemed to convulse itself into sadden motion. Heads were flung back, wild armts sprang upward, shaking hats and caps, whilo a hoarse and deafening shout issued from I'd hate to say how many thousands of thioals, repeating itbell again and again. It was a crowd "whero the best Avas like the worst," bootblacks rubbed elbows with bankers, and painted creatures with the fat and wholesome mothers of families ; bill I'll guarantee that but one emotion, indeed uufc one sensation, moved them all. Curiosity, excitement, criticism, selfish impulses to push forward, irritation at being pushed backward were sunk in a single, binding wave of gratitude. Before the amazing demonstration ended this found definite direction in the hymnal sentiment of "Auld Lang Syne," carried by the orchestra and welling from the concourse, and the intensely Anglo-Saxon function of three rousing cheers. Would you care to go to any entertainment that did not have music ? Undoubtedly not. Music brightens things up, doesn't it? Then, why not brighten up your home. The secret of many a happy home lies in the musical evenings spent round the piano. It's the man who comes home too tired to read who needs music, whilst the boys and girls have the home ties strengthened and tightened . by the clear, deep silvery tones of a good piano.
