CHANGE. "Life’s rather like a kaleidoscope ; one little shake and all the pieces form a new pattern."—E. S. Rorison in "The Swimmers.” THE TEST. "The only way to judge I’ve found, is by the amount of work they’re ready to do after they have addressed the meeting."—Frederick Palmer in "Lucy of the Stars." AFFINITES. "She had fought for her own hand long enough in the world to learn that the true claim to love lies not in relationship, but in service ; that it is more often in the bleak places of the world that under the shadow of the family tree that one finds those who are truely of one’s own household." —Francis Grabble in "The Pillar of Cloud." CHIVALRY. "We have moved a little farther in regarding chivalry as an attribute of the MAN, though the mediaeval notion still lingers that its qualities pertain par excellence to the 'gentleman.’ We yet further to go in making them extend in their full range to the womanly character. The hotion seems to be fairly widespread that it is feminine to be at least a little treacherous !” —Mona Caird in "The Romantic Cities of. Provence." PITY. "Pity is answerable for almost as many marriages as love ; but the State cannot thrive on it. It is wrong. Once the glow of self-satis-faction has died out of the pityer, contempt has a way of coming in."— E. V. Lucas in "Listener’s Lure." IDEALISTS. "I seem to have spent my life watching idealists fight and go under. The ideals remain ; their 'defenders either perish or lose heart, make compromises, and despise themselves."- —Mrs Oraigie in "The Dream and the Business." TYRANNY. "In any struggle for freedom the real danger begins with a moment of victory."—A. T. Quiller-Couoh in "Sir John Constantine." STAGES. '■'May it not. be said that each stage of life is in a sense an end of itself, although it may also be a preparation for another ? Childhood is not merely the preparation for manhood ; nor will that child’s life be most wisely and profitably spent if those who mould and direct it think always of the futute and never of the present. So, too, of the life on earth and the life hereafter. The earthly life is an end in itself, and it must not merely be viewed as the preparation for another.”—C. G. Montefiore in "Truth in Religion." , AMUSEMENTS. "We are a nation at play. Work is. a nuisance, an evil necessity to be shirked and hurried over as quick-ly-as possible, in order that we may get away to the real business of life —thegoll course, the bridg-o table, the cricket and football field, or some other of the thousand amusements

which occupy our minds, and for which no trouble is too great.”—Arthur Shad well in "Industrial Efficiency.”' HELP. "The only way of really helping a man is to strengthen him by education, timely assistance, opportunities, what you will, to mojet his own difficulties and organise his own life.”—Mrs Bosanquet in "The Standard of Life.”-
