RE-CLAIMING INEBRIATES. A considerable number of those interested in the cure of habitual inebriates will like to have some more detailed information of the work at Lady Henry Somerset's Home near Reigate. The settlement is known as the Industrial Farm Colony, and it was opened in 1895, on lines which were believed to be scientific and sound; and to make, if possibly a sort of object lesson for the State. The farm con- sists of a colony village, built on the slopes of the hills of Surrey, and overlooking beauti- ful plains that stretch away for miles on either side. Here the little thatched cottages nestle as though they had been built for many years, forming a triangle round the green. On one side stands the hospital, and opposite the church, and in a meadow the long building called "The Children's Nest" faces the village. Far up the road, in its own grounds, is the Manor House, 'which has been opened for the reception of patients able to pay a larger fee. Perhaps the most important feature of the scheme is the arrangement for the recognition of the individual in the patient. Each little cottage contains six inhabitants and a nurse sister, who superintends the family. Gardening is one of the chief and most attrac- tive occupations upon which the minds of patients are centred. Miss Jessie Smith, of Swanley, being the superintendent and instruc- tress. Other interesting occupations are the weaving of fancy aprons, linens, and woollen dress materials. Already three looms are at work, and a very small additional grant of money would enable ,he committee to start a fourth.
