Prisoner of War
Second-Lieut. Julius K. Wylie, Royal Irish Rifles, a prisoner of war at Karlsruhe, is a son of Mr. James Wylie, 2 Lower Mount Street, Belfast. No news had been heard of this officer for a considerable time, but on Friday a telegram from the Red Cross stated that he is in captivity. The latter was followed by a report from the War Office that he was missing. Second Lieut. Wylie is a member of the East Belfast Regiment U.V.F., and joined up in September, 1914. While serving in the ranks he was wounded, and he was subsequently granted a commission in another Rifles battalion. He is a well known entertainer, and in pre-war days was a partner of the popular concert performers Wylie and Mack, the latter being with the Royal Engineers.

INDIAN STICKS (lid off a cigar box)
"Columbus found the Inhabitants to be of fine physique, dressed in skins covered with elaborate designs, and ornaments of feathers worn down the back from head to heel. They were of the hue of red copper. They were mostly found smoking a leaf which they called "tabac," rolled into sticks, from which they appeared to derive considerable satisfaction."
These Indians, with their love of Art, could have rolled their "tabac" into forms as elaborate as those which are now used in costly cigars. But this they did not do, because they were men dealing with the essential enjoyments of life rather than with its unnecessary fringes. It is obvious that elaborate shapes, for which we pay so much, are unnecessary, since they do not aid but impede the free burning upon which the flavour of the cigar so largely depends. The Indians undoubtedly found by experience that the straight stick of tobacco which they rolled themselves quickly, easily and without wasting any of their materials, was the best way in which to smoke; and to-day, when no one of us wishes to miss any of the luxuries of life, we would do well to enjoy our tobacco in its best form - that of the cigar, but rolled in its most economical shape - that is as a stick and as the Indians smoked it.

Some day I'll get my cards without a warning,
I'll be sitting on a form inside that building,
He'll say to me "Come down every Friday,"
In twelve months they'll let me have a transfer,
Now if there isn't any work hereafter
And if I strike it rich like Rockfeller,
Last night I lay sleeping, bad ?ess to my dreaming,
The the manager said, Will you have a small brandy,
There were no forms to fill and I felt so delighted,
When I got home, the wife, she embraced me,
