Lady H addon-Smith had an interesting experience the oilier day when she wi nt to the Philharmonic Hall to see the wonderful fjlmofsubma rioe pictures, for Lady Had don-Smith, whose husband wasGovernorof theBahamas, herself went down in the div ing bell a pa rat us when tl i films were being taken. She is one of the very few women who have been at the bottom of the sea for half an hour and been towed along the ocean bed for ten or twelve miles. All this happened some where near Lady HaddonSmith's home in the Wind ward Islands, and she did not t he films until she visited the Philharmonic Hall the other day. The visit had its tragic side, unfortunately, for Lady Haddon Smith's daughti r, who was with her during the submarine adventure, has since died, and her young husband, who was unable to a •! have in time lo visit his dving wife, was afterwards killed in action.

The news from the front is,
on the whole, very cheering,
Jn South Eastern Roumania,
tlie Bulgarians, with the aid
of Germans and Turks and
under the able command of
\ on Nfackenson, have driven
back the Roumanians and
Russians some considerable
distance. The Bulgarian*,|
however, are being pres i d
backall along their Southern
front. Gre< ce still un
decided, though what the
formation of a new Ministry
may portend, ouIsi ris can
not tell. To us, the most
cheering news is Ihecontiuu
ed suci ess of our armies on
the Somme. Though our pro
Mo ss is slow, our mi n were
able last week lo mala
larger advance than usual,
and even our armoured mo
tor cars had room enough to
n< t. This lattei fact i very
heartening.

the Philharmonic Hall to see
the wonderful fjlmofsubma
rioe pictures, for Lady Had
don-Smith, whose husband
wasGovernorof theBahamas,
herself went down in the div
ing bell a pa rat us when tl i
films were being taken. She
is one of the very few women
who have been at the bottom
of the sea for half an hour
and been towed along the
ocean bed for ten or twelve
miles.
All this happened some
where near Lady Haddon-
Smith's home in the Wind
ward Islands, and she did not
t he films until she visited
the Philharmonic Hall the
other day.
The visit had its tragic
side, unfortunately, for Lady
Haddon Smith's daughti r,
who was with her during the
submarine adventure, has
since died, and her young
husband, who was unable to
a ! have in time lo visit his
dving wife, was afterwards
killed in action.
