Appeal on behalf of the Mary Macarthur Holiday Home for Working Women by Miss Margery Fry, J. p.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowedged and should be addressed to Miss Margery Fry, [address removed]
There are two Mary Macarthur Holiday Homes, one at Poulton-le-Fylde, near Blackpool, and one at Stanstead, Essex, which provide restful holidays for working women who could not otherwise afford a holiday. The main object of the Homes is to provide a necessary rest to prevent illness. Visitors come from all parts of the British Isles and among their number are mothers and housewives as well as women and girls who are earning their living : they pay what they can afford, and the only qualification required is the need of a rest and the inability to pay the cost of a normal holiday.

4--' Poor Peter '
Produced by James Crampsey
Darsie Latimer's fishing holiday by the Solway Firth has led him into strange adventures and even stranger company. ' The Laird -of the Solway Lochs ' has saved him from certain death in the quicksands. The old Quaker fisherman, Joshua Geddes, has befriended him and has given some half-clues to the mysteries that shroud the young man's birth and fortune. The girl in the green mantle has already captured his heart, though he has seen but little of her. Moreover, he has discovered in letters from his friend Alan Fairford that both the Laird ' and Greenmantle * seem to be extraordinarily interested in his affairs.
He has met Wandering Willie, the blind fiddler, who has told him the strange tale of the Redgauntlets, a tale in which a reference to the family crest faintly stirs a chord in Darsie's memory. And he has met again the sinister figure of Cristal Nixon, in company with ' Greenmantle ' herself!

In our private lives today we enjoy an unusual degree of security; yet our society is threatened by enormous hazards. This paradox-the combination of an uneventful everyday life, but with vast dangers lying beyond it-is bewildering, and yet if we are really to live in the society we inhabit, we need to master it. John Holloway, author of a critical study of nineteenth-century literature called The Victorian Sage, suggests that it is here that literature, and the man of letters, can help. For a great work of literature can show as nothing else can how ordinary life can always, and only too easily, turn extraordinary.
