Among the many exploded theories which were generally accepted before the war are those that women are invariably deficient in physical strength, and that they lack the versatility which makes masculine workers adaptable to whatsoever their hands find to do. Our photographs give ocular proof of their capability. They show, first, a number of motor drivers and nurses running energetically to their Red Cross ambulances when a train carrying wounded has been signalled, on the British West Fiont in France ; and in the next, from the same Crale, we see women working .hard in a women-carpenters’ workshop.—No. 3 takes us. to Newstead Abbey, Lady Markham’s historic seat, where

girls are cleaning the famous Lily Pond.–In No. 4, workers for the Red Cross are being received at the Villa Reale by the Italian Crown Prince and the Princess Yolanda.— No. 5 shows Princess Mary, very pretty and girlish in her dainty white frock, who visited Richmond on July 14 to open an Exhibition of Work by the wounded soldiers in the Star and Garter Home, presenting a medallion to Mr. Barker, the Libra/r-1, in commemor- ation of ” exceptional services ” rendered to the Home.- Nos. 6 and 7 show children fruit-bottling, and women and girls in a farm wagon on their way to take part in the demonstration, on July 14, by Women Land Workers at Bredons Norton.
