Society and Stage are allies when it comes to entertaining the wounded, and between them they have done splendid work. Nothing could exceed the energy devoted to this labour of love on the part of the people of the great world and the profession; and, of course, included in the profession nowadays are not only those of what used to be called the legitimate stage, but those of the music-hall stage ; for actors and actresses are regular stars of the “halls,” just as artistes are stars of the theatres. A case in point is illustrated by this page of sketches, made the other day at one of the regular concerts given at Harrods’ for wounded soldiers-affairs which bring delight to eighty or

ninety wounded at a time. It may be added that, for the purpose, Messrs. Harrods, through Sir Richard Burbidge, have very kindly lent a large room; and that a number of their staff voluntarily stay over-time that they may be of assistance. At the same time, the Stores supply the tea and cigarettes for the men at cost price. As we have noted, a splendid amount of help has been given by the profession. Any members of it who would care to lend their aid to this very deserving cause need only to write to us to be put in touch with those who can supply them with dates and times and all other details.-[Drawing Copyrhterd sn the United States and Casnda.l
