They. have the "servant problam" over hare In Acute form, but It would tie solved In no time if there were many more domestics like Mary Ann Lancaster, who has Just died. Whether thla real "Mary Ann" was a treasure or not you can guess from the fact that he lived as "maid and friend" aox cording to her obituary notice) with a family m Stoke Newlngton for 66 years, or up to the day of her death at the age of 88, It proves, moreover, that besides being a model servant. Mary Ann Lancaster had the welfare of her fellow domestics at heart, ' and that she contributed in all over U60 to . the funds of the Domestic Servants' Benevolent institution, an organization in this country which befriends aervanta in time of stress. Bis. SeeondHsu)0 Book Trade. Two young Londoners named Foyle claim to have the biggest secondhand book business in the world. Just seven-years ago, and almost by accident, the Foyles, one 17 and the other IS, started In business with a ptocloln-trade consisting of a dozen old ' shorthand manuals, worth may be. 60 cents the lot. Today they own about 260,000.. volumes, the million r so of which have been sorted and catalogued occupy 20 miles of shelv-i Ing. and the balance of which prao-: tlcally fill a big warehouse. The Foyles do business the world over, and their morning mall averages over 1.000 letters. Since they started In business In a little lockup" shop In Beckham, they have Rtoved three times, and the present eadqusrtera In Charing Cross road, where over 70 persons are employed, and which was opened quite recently, is one of the most Imposing establishments in that thoroughfare which Is almost given up to aim liar busl- E esses and is famous as the happjr-untlng ground of bibliophiles. Favorite Recreation. Is a man to bo judged by his recreations? This question Is agitating us over here, having been raised In the house of commons a night or two ago in connection with the appointment of Sir Sidney Olivier, who at present is governor of Jamaica, to be secretary of agriculture In the Asquttn cabinet. Bevillfl Sta-filer, who sits In parliament for the division of North Shropshire, and has eope renown himself as an agriculturist, took exception to . the appointment of Sir Sidney on the novel ground that his recreations, as given In "Who's Who." are "loafing and dilettantism." This proves to have been a misquotation, Sir Sidney's recreations actually being given as "the normal forms of loafing and dilettantism." The speaker of the house promptly Bat on Stanier hard, and that closed the incident which, however, has led at least one person to follow the Shropshire M. P.'s example and look up the recreations of other British celebrities. The results are rather entertaining. George Bernard Shaw's recreations are quite characteristic. As "exercises," he nets down "driving an automobile, swimming and publia speaking;" while under the head of "recreations" ho puts "anything except sport." Amerlcaalatng Playfcosmea. Klowly but surely, the British play-houses, like about everything else British, Is being Americanized. Gradually, but certainly, the old fashion of making the denizens of tho pit and gallery of British theaters wait in line for hours In order' to get a good seat le giving way to the American oru of having all seats re-nervable, and now the Americanization of the aristocratic "stalls" or orchestra teats in well on the way. Zt looks as if the autocratic phrase "evening dress indispensable" which now Is printed on the tickets for the stalls of practically every first Class London thMltAf wan AnntnaA to disappear forever, and with It the uuwruuin om, unui recently, ironclad law that tn ttt In tha hAflf Eeats In an English theater, one must e "lit up," and if this happens It will be due almost wholly to the potent and ever-Increasing influence which Americans are exerting on the TAKES FATHER'S p.

' Mssnniiil vmsbbIW ' SBSSBBBBSSBBlBBBBin I KT3jCBbV ' LORD FAKQUHAR. SIR DEREK ; REPPSt. ' BVota a - Staff - Correspondent. St" London. February i. With :an inline of . $2,360,000 a year King George of . England. Is so poor that he-has been-compelled to cut down his own food and to limit, the number of. courses that are served, to his head servants. He will no longer travel knowing that, a sumptuous private car accommodates the great; staff of attendants' who accompany him and hla family from palace to, palace, but will have to -let hla court' journey in. ordinary first class rail way carriages. And finally the king and queen henceforth will strictly limit the presents which they have been in the habit" of making their hosts and hostesses and. In the majority of. cases, will give only signed photograph's, as wna the custom of ine jaio wueen victoria. The secret of all these economies Just has . been revealed by a member of the royal household. King George has determined to save 5,500,000 in the next 16 years. Up to the present time he has not saved a penny -piece, but there are excellent paternal rea- (jfinit mhv hn ftftaiilrl rntorm 1 n JZ.- 500,000. safely Invested, would yield an income large enougn to supplement the. annual allowance made to Mm ohnn nnrt rfn.iirrlii.M-Fi hv th Brit ish parliament so that each will be in receipt or t,uuu a year at, marriage. The mere 150,000 a year which th British lecfslatora think amnlv sufficient for the daughter or younger sons oe tne xnonarcn, njng ueorge believes Is too small to permit the comxort ne wisnes nis ouspring to an lov. ucurge nas, oeaiuoa ine rnnce waios, rour sons ana one aaugiuer. About a nrovlslon for his eldest son. King Georgo need not trouble his head. The revenues from the Duchy of Cornwall, amounting to about $500,000 per annum, are settled on the prince, and parliament, on the king's accession, voted $350,000 a year for the maintenance of the neir apparent, wmcu win oe in creased by another $150,000 a year when he marries. The provision made by the state for 1 the younger royal children amounts to 25,000 per annum each, to be increased to $50,000 ou their marriage. The King 13 quite satts- nea mat iu,uuu a year la tne rami- mum llguro on which Prince Albert. Prince licnry or any of the younger I sons of Ktnjs,.(l.of.p could afford 'to 1 marry and even at that they would have to bo content with smaller establishments than their eldest1 brother, with his $1,000,000 a year. About a provision for Princess 1 Mary, however, there Is not the same need of anxiety. She will probably marry the heir to some European throne and In such a rase the $50,000 a year that the Kuglish nation would give her would ho a sufficient dowry. On the other hand. If she marries a minor foreign royalty, her expenses as the consort of such would he comparatively small, and she could live comfortably, as many minor royalties do. on her own dowry, oven supposing her husband had nothing at all. King George, for tho past year, has been planning a number of economies in tho management of the royal establishment. His first move Is the appoiutmcnt of Sir CNrek Kep-pel as master of the household in place of Sir Charles Frederick. Economies can be effected only by a strong man, and that Is tho reason why the genial, kind-hearted, and popular Sir Charles Frederick has been oucceded In the position of the master of the household by the one ofilclol in the household) whom perhaps even King George would rather not risk doing anything to offend. Sir Derek Keppel has an Iron will, a temper that no one who knows him on res to arouse, and a clear brain. He has been an equerry to King George for the last 19 years. In the expenses of the royal, household and servants' tables King George hopes, under the management of Kir Derek Keppel, to be able to effect a saving that will ho considerable without being too markodly observable. The catering accounts at the royal residences Jumped up enormously during the reign of tho late King Kdwurd. Lord Karquhar, an old friend of King Kd ward's, at the beginning of the late reign took control of the household for a couplo of years to get tho then new royal establishment Into working order. Lord Farquhar is a banker and u keen, shrewd man of business. Ha worked out an estimate by which the whole of the household catering could be well .done for about $140,-000 per annum. But a year after Lord Fnrquhar relinquished control of the nffalrs of the royal household, the catering bills had risen to $175,000 a year, and they havo risen to $200,000 a year since King . George came to the throne. But this rise Is due. not to any increased extravagance, but to the, fact that there are several strong, healthy and hungry young princes and a princess to be fed, waited on. and generally looked after.
