Appeal on behalf of the Mary Macarthur Holiday Home for Working Women by Mrs. Mary Stocks
Contributions (preferably by cropped postal order or cheque) will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]
There are two Mary Macarthur Holiday Homes, one at Poulton-le-Fylde, near Blackpool, and one at Stansted, Essex, which provide restful holidays for working women who could not otherwise afford a holiday. The main object is to provide a necessary rest to prevent illness.
Visitors come from all parts of the British Isles, and among their number arc 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 for a rest and the inability to pay the cost of a normal holiday.

It is now November 23, 1872. While Phileas Fogg and the Indian girl were dining at a hotel in Hong Kong. Fix, the stupid detective who is awaiting a warrant to arrest Fogg as a bank robber and so wants to delay him, lured Passepartout into an opium den. Passepartout is put aboard a ship, insensible, and wakes up to find that his master is not with him. Arriving in Yokohama he is penniless.
There are only twenty-eight days left in which to win the £ 20,000 wager. Mr. Fogg finds Passepartout in Yokohama just in time to catch the General Grant bound for San Francisco. Passepartout meets Fix on deck, and attacks him.
