NO GARDENING ON SUNDAY. An amusing discussion took place at a meeting of the Tollbridge Urban Council on a recom- mendation of the A llotmcnts Committee that no gardening should be done on Sundays, "other than the cutting of vegetables before 10 a.m." Councillor Clark moved that the paragrnpli be referred back until the committee had tim" to study the 12th Chapter of the Gospel accords g to St. Matthew, in which they wr uld find that it was not wicked to cutvcgetablês on Sunday. The Gospel aid nothing at all about "before 10 [o'clock." In seconding, Councillor Lawson said that the (regulation was the most grandmotherly one lie had heard of. I It wasgtated that people who were walking ont on Sundays had been offended at the sight of men working in the allotments. The paragraph was allowed to stand, with the emission of the words "before 10 o'clock."
