Embedded text or transcriptLight-Control in Church : A system of light-control has been installed in a Brighton Congregational Church. By this means it is hoped to avoid accidents during the collection.
stop
go Horrors of the Night : Road authorities, pleased with their experiments in the new ghastly-green street lighting, now talk of dressing traffic police in white at night. Later, no doubt some clanking of chains and a few hollow moans will be introduced to complete the effect.
Cemetery "In Autumn, when the leaves begin to fall" : O.K. so long as they are not attached to trees. Kew Zoo : Visitors who feed rats like pets have caused their serious increase in Kew Gardens. The Rat Lovers Society is said to have demanded the removal of the flower-beds to give the little dears more room.
