Crystal Garden Pool is the largest indoor
swimming pool on the continent. . . and the
loveliest. The great tank, 40 x 150 feet, is housed
under a glass roof, and bowered in ferns and palms.
By day it is bright with sun. . . by night it sparkles
with a thousand lights.
The water is three to nine feet in depth. Small
paddlers may splash safely in the shallows, cham-
pions dive boldly off the high platforms into the
deep end. Famous swimming matches are held
here and world-records lowered.
Freshly reconditioned this spring, the pool has all-
the modern scientific equipment, and all the
luxurious comforts. . . vacuum cleaning system, wet
gas chlorination sterilising system, filter back-
washing system, keeping the water pure, sweet
and clear. The walls have been newly tiled.
The dressing rooms are reconditioned and enlarged.
There are showers and salt water baths. The tea
gallery and promenade, the banquet hall, the ballrooms and iha ^a%"gpfepf have been refreshed.

LEARN TO SWIM
.'. .for health and safely
|ON'T LET another season go by without
learning to swim. Until you know the delight
of being able to swim you will never realise how
much fun and physical fitness you have been missing.
You can never tell when knowing how to swim
will be of inestimable benefit, in saving your own
life or that of a loved one.
Have you a few pounds to lose, or redistribute?
Pool swimming does the trick better than any other
exercise. Do you want to keep fit? Physicians say
that swimming is the be& health-builder there is.
Make it a regular thing to swim at Crystal Garden
Pool several times a week. It will pay you a
dividend in both pleasure and health from the very
beginning.

the rendezvous of Victoria Society
EXPERIENCED travellers class the Empress as one of the five greatest
world-hotels; and indeed it is a meeting place for world travellers,
bound out to the Orient, or home from the Seven Seas.
The Empress does not seem like a hotel, but rather like a big English
country house. It is set in an eight-acre garden, full of rare varieties,
with roses in bloom almost every day of the year. All through the
hotel there is quiet.. . low English voices, restrained English manners,
efficient English service.
Vidtoria is a city with a di&indtive personality, so different from that of
other coaSt cities that inevitably you find yourself advising your friends "Be
