Nearly every lady in Society who has a husband or son at the Front, or on service in the Navy, is devoting a good deal of her time and thoughts to war- work of value in these momentous days. The beautiful young Countess of Wilton is no exception to the rule, but is devoting herself to various kinds ofwork while the Earl, who is an officer in the Royal Navy, is absent on service.
