CHESTER TEACHERS. + ANNUAL MEETING. The annual meeting of the Chester and District Tcachcrs' Association was held in the Museum on Saturday afternoon, Mr. L.

Lockett) submitted the annual report, which stated that the association had started the year with 129 members, and during the year 24 new members had been admitted. Against that they had lost five, who had allowed their member- ship to lapse, while seven had left the district and had been transferred to other associations, making the present membership 141, an increase of 12.
