A mysterious cab is seen appearing out of the gloom of a London fog. It stops before a sta tely mansion and a veiled lady descends, peers cautiously around and enters the house. This inscrutable young person performs all sorts of kindly miracles for the people in her boarding-house later on in the picture, hut it is not until the final breathlessly absorbing denouement that her identity is discovered. Billie Burke in "The Mysterious Miss Terry".is appearing at Starland AT THE MAJESTIC Writing in the New York Evening Sun March 5, 1!>17, Stephen Rat.hbum said: In "The Brat" Miss Pulton has written a p?ay that Is well worth while. She is to be congratulated. It. is a comedy with a pronounced undertone of seriousness. While taking it in I laughed a-plenty-I couldn't help it-but between the laughs 1 felt the thrill and pull of something higher than mere mirthful-ness. I felt that one of the greatest of the world's poets lias called "the joy of elevated thoughts'' the rapture born of the communion with pure and noble reflections.

B-rths........... 37tt 420 Marriages........ 224 212 Deaths ........... 178 193 Mr. Bowman explains that the birth figures show a falling off as compared with the 1916 figures owing to the fact that the previous year the figures were somewhat inflated. This was due to the fact that, for Patriotic Fund purposes, many children, in so*r�e cases whole families, who had never been registered at the time of birth^ were registered in 1916 to fulfil tbe requirements. Last year only actual births during the year were regi&ter-od. The birth rate, according to the figures for last year, was '3.11, while the death rate was only 1.61, so that the birth rate was almost double the death rate. There was an increase of 12 in the number of marriages ovt the preceding year. V'ctorla, B.
