Perhaps the hard answer is that It depends on the work and the stor- ies Somebody once said to Sir John Heimiker Heatoii that his great work would never be forgotten. "Perhaps not" he replied, "but all good stor- ies will be forgotten, even by my children." Always the Imperial Penny Post will be a monument to Sir John, an increasing monument. As for his stories, his daughter, Mrs. Adrian Por- ter gives some of them the perman- ence of print in his "Life and Letters, a goodly volume which John Lane publishes this morning. The member for Canterbury was In the House of Commons for more than a quarter of n century, and incident- ally was the pioneer of "tea on the Terrace." When he was not "ftt the House" he was travelling, and he died at Geneva on his way from Carlsbad after the Great War broke out Thus his death came tragically, for'he was yearning to be homo, but lie had loved a full life and achieved the task to which he set himself when he entered the House of One evening he was dining there with Lord Randolph Churchill when the latter was in a mood halt" pessi- mistic, half playful.

Echoes of the Lobby Long ago a young Welsh member made rather a striking speech, Henniker Heaton stopped him in the Lobby to congratulate, him. Many years later air.'Lloyd George surprised "H. H." by recalling the in- cident, adding, "You were ths first Tory member who ever. said, an en- couraging word to-me, and I Ivave not forgotten it." The customs of the House wound themselves into Henniker Heaton, and he Idved .them. But he never would quote with gay approval a remark made by >Mr. -Birrell oil-the matter of the Whips: "I mar, inadvertently, have gone home for dinner occasion- ally, but, gentlemen, when you have to choose between an angry Whip and an angry "wife-----?

Parnell took from his pocket a scrap of paper and read "Twenty-seven ounces of gold and five ounces of silver." This was exactly the analysis which the professional metallurgists had found, and "H. H." said so. "The fact said Parnell, "I take an interest in the matter, I have a small work- shop in the mountains of Wicklow, some portion of which I own."

The situation in Belgium grows more critical with every passing week. The women, children and old and wounded men, in steadily growing numbers, depends abso- lutely on the Belgian RelietCommissfcm. If the food supplied by the Commission were-cut off, the third day would find the weaker ones starving, to death. Within two weeks 000 would be. dead or more would be suffering acutely.
