PERSONAL. Lord Justice Vaughan Williams, who is one of the most distinguished Welshmen that has ever adorned the Bar, is, by the way, a country gentle- man and a farmer to boot. Nothing pleases him better than to walk round his Surrey estate and inquire after the crops." The Marquis of Londonderry, who is a man of many parts and affairs, has consented to preside at a meeting to be held within the next ten days in a committee room of the House of Commons, when a statement will be made respecting the project for constructing a tunnel between Great Britain and Ireland. The arrivals of Sir A. Milner and President Kruger at Bloemfontein have been made the subject of demonstrations. The former received an address, and in reply spoke of happy memories of former visits. Mr. Kruger, responding to a similar recognition, said he and his advisers had come to Bloemfontein to work for the welfare of the whole of South Africa. He would discuss all questions not affecting the independence of the Transvaal. The President spoke briefly, laying especial stress on the thrice-repeated all." Sir A. Milner is well known in the neighbourhood of Machynlleth, where he has many friends and admirers. And, although absorbed in State affairs, he must at times long for the banks of the charm- ing Dovey. Although Lord Salisbury did not hold his customary diplomatic reception last week, the omission does not indicate a falling-off of the im- provement in his health. The Premier has been able to go out driving, and his progress towards complete recovery is maintained. For a considerable time Her Majesty's eyesight has been to some extent impaired owing to changes incidental to advanced years, but the deterioration has ceased to be progressive. The Queen's eye- sight has in no respect become worse during the last few years.
