MR LLOYD-GEORGE AND HIS CONSTITUENTS. VIEWS OF REPRESENTATIVE MEN ON THE "CLEONINE" ATTACK. This week, our representative interviewed a number of prominent members of the Calvinistie connexion ii: Bangor and Carnar- von, in order to ascertain their views on the attack recently made 011 Mr D. Lloyd- George, M.P., in the J'Goleuiad." The articles in question, while acknowledging the brilliant qualities of the hon. member for the Carnarvon Boroughs, severely criti- cised and condemned liis actions and policy with regard to the "Revolt" so much spoken of before the general election, and his in- dependent attitude towards the late Minis- try. The articles also justified the attitude of Mr Bryn Roberts, M.P., in not partici- pating in that policv. MR J. BRYN ROBERTS, M.P., in answer to a communication from our re- porter, refused to be interviewed on the subject. DR ROLAND JONES. BANGOR, in answer to a casual question OIl the street, said that he had not read the "Cleon'' ar- ticles. However, he had heard of them. He expressed the opinion that it was a great pity laat they, as Liberals, could not agree. Unless something was done, Wales would be transformed into another Ireland. MR T. J. WILLIAMS, headmaster of the he. Paul s School, Bangor, chairman of the Bangor jUueral Association, and a Calvinistic deacon, said:—"As to the first article, which I have read, I have no doubt that there is something underlying it beside the public weal. Although it has a gloss upon it. to anyone reading be- tween the lines, the animus is perfectly clear. Mr Lioyd-George requires no de- fence—his public actions and the sacrifices which he has already made for nis country are his best defence in the present; and history will do him justice in the future. Speaking as a Calrvinistic Methodist, I am sorry to find strictures upon Mr Lloyd- George emanating from members of our con- nexion. I find that the same people, and I may say to a great extent the same men, were the opponents of Mr William Jones. M.P. This is significant." "What about the rank and file of the con- nexion I" "The rank and file of the Calvinistic Methodists, as far as my experience and information goes, appear to understand this question now, and they hold aloof from the few leaders ivho take such an interest in attacking our popular representative." COUNCILLOR HENRY LEWIS, invited to express his views, said: -"The remarks in the 'Goleuad' is a fair criticism of the actions of a public man. They ap- pear to be free from all personal, sectarian, or any other bias, but such a fair criticism of a public man as he may reasonably ex- pect to receive. The inference the writer wishes to draw from Mr Lloyd-George's actions evidently is, that Mr Lloyd-George endeavours to form an Independent Welsh Party, and the question for his constituents Party, and the question for his constituents and others who are interested in his poiiev. is whether that inference is correct, and if correct, whether the policy indicated is the right one. I have never, myself, doubted that Mr Lloyd-George's actions in Parlia- ment have been such as to warrant this as- sumption, and he, evidently, appears to think that the Welsh members should com- bine for Welsh objects, and aim at their accomplishment, independently of any poli- tical party. Whether the time has come to support such a policy, or whether eve as a nation have a grievance so acute as to warrant such a policy, it is foi the Liberal constituencies of Wales to de- cide. I think that the writer in the 'Goleuad' is right in discuss- ing the matter now. Questions of this sort can be dealt with far better when the con- stituencies are remote from the turmoil and the heat of an election. But I sincerely trust that the writer on the one side, and Mr Lloyd-George on the other side, will be credited, as they deserve, with the best in- tentions in their endeavour to lead the Lib- erals of Wales to what, in their opinion, is best for their countrymen. This question d-d arise on the threshold of the general election, and several Liberals in Bangor- I men whose opinion is worth quoting, and whose influence is very extensive—men be- longing not to one religious denomination alone, hesitated very much whether they would support Mr Lloyd-George at the last election. Those of us who felt it our duty to stand by our member at the time had much trouble to persuade those gentlemen to record their votes in his favour when the contest became acute. I think, therefore, should an other election take place soon, that this question should have to be thoroughly thrashed out, and I have no doubt in my own mind of the result. I think that there would be an overwhelming number of those Liberals in this constitu- ency, who have been looked upon as leaders, who would hesitate very much to support the policy of the formation of an Indepen- dent Welsh Party. Meantime, there is no immediate prospects of another appeal to the constituencies, and when the time comes for Mr Lloyd-George to ask again for the confidence of his electors, the scene will have been shifted and other questions will be forced on our consideration. Then all Liberals will fall into line, and give him that support which his brilliant talents so well deserve." MR EDWARD JOXES, Bryn teg. Bangor, an estimable Calvinistic "blaenor," in answer to our queries, said that he acted as the local secretary to Mr Lloyd-George's pleotion committee at the general election. He condemned the "Re- volt," and did not agree in many other re- spects with the policy of the lion, member. "As you see," he added, "I am getting old, and Mr George seems to be labouring under the idea that old people are worthless. As to tlie 'Cleon' article, I do not approve of resurrecting a subject which has already been buried. To make myself clear, I had better give it to vou in this way. Although opposed to the "Revolt," what I condemned most was the conduct of the revolters in going through the country to divide the PiarK\ -°f 1u.ourse' it; evident enough that their object was to justify their actions, but in endeavouring to attain that end they divided the party in many instances. To my mind, in politics, as in social affairs, the minority must give way. I have no ill- feeling against Mr Lloyd-George, but I am at issue with him with regard to his policy about the formation of an Independent I Welsh Party. These views. I held at the general election—and although they may seem inconsistent with my working—I never worked harder in my life than I did for his return. I may state tlfat my endeavours were not for the man but for the party. I put principles before men. I felt that Mr Lloyd-George was the best possible candi- date we could get to carry the boroughs, and I readily admit that I am 111 the minor- ity—but that minority consists of the lead- ing Liberals cf Bangor. Mr George was and is popular with the masses." MR R. A. GRIFFITH said —I lu^irtily approve of Mr Lloyd- George s past poiiey, and sincerely believe that if it had not been for the "revolt," we should never have heard of elsh Dises- tablishment in the last Parliamettit. The moderate party may take all the credit they please for some occult influence they may have possessed, but the fact remains that the late Government plaved us false all along until threatened with desertion. How do I explain the outburst of the "Goleuad V I regard it simply as the frantic effort of petty officialism to keep down the forces of democracy. On the one side, you have the "Goleuad," the official organ of the most autocratic of all the Welsh sects, and usually nothing more than an arid chronicler of de- nominational proceedings, without inspira- tion or idea ol any kind on the other side, you have papers like the "Herald" and the "Uenedl," devoted to the interests of the nation, and in which the opinions and as- pirations of the people find free expression. On the one hand, you see men trying to maintain at all cost the little systems in which they are shining lights, and pooh- poohing the idea or the "unity of Wales on the other, you have the people yearning and clamou/ring aor national organisation. There can be no doubt that matters have come to a crisis, and there may be trouble for a time, but I believe that Mr Lloyd- George and his party will come out triumph- ant if they will make their appeal to the democracy. Welsh polices have entered on a new phase. The "Goleuad" folk are so absorbed in their one pet idea of Disestab- lishment, that they fail to realise that this movement, important though it is, is only one step in tiie evolution of national regen- eration. They seem to care for nothing beyond, and they are so jealous of their authority that they (regard with intense suspicion any movement which is calculated to give the people a larger share in the direction of their own affairs. They even fail to see the vast strides which the idea of Home Rule has made during the last few years, how it dominates all other questions, and what a tremendous bearing it may have upon the fate of Disestablishment it- self. Nothing is clearer to my mind than that the great question that will occupy the Liberal party, whenever it may return to power, w-^x be "Home Rule all round," and unless we are prepared, when the time comes, to demand the same treatment as other nationalities, we may find ourselves an- nexed for all time to England, and our hopes of obtaining Disestablishment, or ;H'y other great reform, dashed to the rouli(i. Mr Lloyd-George clearly grasps the situa- tion, and the barking of the "Goleuad" will ha\e done immense good, if it only gives- him an opportunity of pressing this great issue upon the attention of the Welsh people. We append an extract from an interview with "a very prominent and influential Liber- al in Carnarvonshire—a leading Methodist too, by the way," which has appeared '11 the "Manchester Guardian:"— "Of course," he said, when I asked whether the articles had produced any impression upon the constituency, "tile influence of the paper depends upon whether it represents the opinion of the Welsh Methodists as a body or merely the opinions of the person or persons who from time to time wiit-e to :.t, If it represents the former, then naturally, as was suggested in the 'Guardian' on Satur- day, the articles would be important, but, as a matter of fact, it does nothing of the kind. One of our ex-moderators was talking to me about it to-day. He expressed very strong opinions as to allowing a journal to pose as the organ of our denomination after entering upon a course of action which must be in- tensely distasteful to the great bulk of the body, and unless he cools down in the inter- val he will certainly take steps to raise the question at the first opportunity. The Go'leuad's revt.ew of Mr Lloyd-George's action no more represents Methodist political opinion than, say, its review of Professor Henry Jones's book represented Methodist theological opinion, and, personally, I think a great deal too much is being made of the matter." B "You do not projwse to take any official j action in the mat-tei in the constJituencv r "I have not heard anything of the kind suggested. If Mr Lloyd-George is content to pass it over, I am quite sure the Liberals in the Carnarvon Boroughs are. I really do not see what action we could take. It would be absurd to bring up our member to the bar to answer every charge which anonymous writers in 'ittle obscure organs choose to hurl at his head. We should be simply asktn" him to fight shadows. The wiiter of these articles may be an influential man—say, a professor, or a minister, or someone holding a certain position in our (Iejioiriiiatioli-or he may be a mere nobody. There is no knowing how these things are worked behind the scenes." H "But would not a pktn statement of the I facts for the information of the public be deu.rab.ie ? —"W ell, those who take any in- terest in political affairs must be already familiar with the facts. They were fresh in the maid of the electors at the last election, I and the way in which we then returned Mr Lloyd-George, in the face of unprecedented hostility, is, I think, a suffici ent indication of the opinion of his constituents. Mind you, I do not say there are not differences of opinion amongst us. A man with such* de- tided views as Mr Lloyd-George is bound to come into confli ct occasionally IN itli soino less- advanced Liberals but I have always found him quite ready to discuss such differences, and to explain any action which might be called in question. Moreover, in his much- talked-of attitude towards the Government when the Disestablishment Inl was on, he acted throughout in a strictly constitutional manner. His National Council amendment was adopted at the Aberystwyth Convention and it was there decided to press it upon the Government The same tiling happened at a joint meeting of represcntatives of the Natrona! Federation and the South Wales liberal Federation at LEandn-Indod. The "V\ elsh members again unarimously decided to support the amendment and to press it upon the Government. And, lastly, two or three days before the fall of the Government, Mr Asquith, after personal consultation with the whole of the Wekh members, accepted the principle of the amendment, and agreed- to substitute a body elected by the Welsh Coun- ty Councils for the three commissioners or- ig' ually proposed. All that Mr Lloyd-George § has done has been to accept the Welsh mem- bers at their word, and to act up to the resol-B utions passed by them. If there is any one man who is responsible for the wreck of the Disestablishment Bin, it is undoubtedly Mr D. A. Thomas, who brought the Govern- ment majority down to seven upon an am- endment which the Welsh members repud- iated, and who acted from first to last in absolute c'isregard u.ther to the safety of the Government, the resolutions of the Welsh members, or the views of the Welsh people. H Why Mr Lloyd-George, who invariably sup- ported the Government in the lobby, should be singled out in this way for attack, while the real offender is passed over, nobody I have spoken to can make out. The only cx- planataon I can offer is that the writer is ."ome person who has been irritated by something B or other that Mr Lloyd-George has sad or done, and who has sufficient influence with the 'Goleuad' to get his views but it seems a very miserable way of dealin^H. with a public man." "Do you think that in the constituencvBj Mr Lloyd-George's poi'xyf of 'Home Rule all Rbund' is geiveraffly acceptable ."Well, I 'Home Rule all Round' is more or less a I question for the future, and I should like tollf see the question raised in some practical way. fii Most Liberals agree with the principle. Loidffir Rosebery himself seems paiticularlv pa.i-t.ial L 't" to it. It is ail a question of expediency I whether it would serve our own ends best? as elsh Liberals to s 1 ok to the old Vnes fori a bit or go in at once for a general policy o-fl Home Rule. Nobody can say precisely howl opinion leans in this constituency or in Wales! as a whole, because the question is only justi beginning to be discussed. If the 'Goleuad'| 1 1 had raised the question as to which policy would be the best for Welsh Liberals to pur- sue, that would have been all very well, but to rake up all that personal matter was, in my view, a very ill-natured piece of work. I I think our member is quite right in ignoring IV o. I
[DEATH OF MR DANIEL I OWEN. I We regret to announce the death, which I took place at Mold early on Tuesday morning,| of Mr Daniel Owen, the well-known novelist.| Mr Owen, as our readersbave been informed! ;by reports from time to time, bad been seriously indisposed for some months. Last week he was reported to be in a very feeble condition. His weakness gradually increased until the end came on Tuesday morning. Mr Owen was conscious up to the last, and his mind was full of hi; favourite study. It is not too much to say that Mr Owen was the greatest Welsh novelist who has yet appeared. He bad keen powers of observa- tion, a happy gift for character-writing, and an intimate acquaintance with Welsh life, which he could always turn to good account. Most of his readers are agreed that his chief work was "Rbys Lewis," which is known and recognised by Welshmen everywhere as a graphic picture of Welsh Nonconformity. It has been translated into English, and recently, we believe, into German. Other of his novels, like this, have had a wide circulation both in Welsh and English, but they deal with somewhat kindred subjects, and for that reason have not quite the freshness which marked Rhys Lewis." One of these, Enoc Huws," is now in course of publication in Wales," the translation from Welsh to English having been undertaken by the Hon. Claud Vivian. Latterly Mr Owen had turned his attention to the writing of short Fireside Stories," and was not less successful in this than he jfflhad been in the more serious branches of his ||work. Mr Owen, when the last fatal illness Scanae upon him, was engaged upon several stories, which, unhappily, he never regained suffiCIent strength to complete. Amongst the novels written by him were :—" Offrym- iau Neillduaetb," Y Dreflan," Y Siswrn," "Rhys Lewis," "Gwen Tomos," "Enoc Huws," and Storeuon y Pentan." || In addition to being a writer of fiction, Mr Owen had also poetical tastes, and contri- buted very largely in this line to different magazines. His bardic title was Glas 1 lwyn," and under this name he subscribed lines to the Methodist about forty years ago, as well as to other periodicals that were published about that time. H About the year 1868, Mr Owen entered |lBala College for the purpose of being! lleducated for the ministry. After remaining! gthere for about three years he had to give up| rathe idea on account of weakness. He left in| the year 1871, and afterwards commenced the business of tailor, &c., in New-street, Mold, where he was fairly successful, and established a good connection. Mr Owen was born of humble parents, and was a native of Mold, where he had resided, practically, all his lifetime. He was born early in the year 1836. In October the following year he had the misfortune to lose ihis father and a brother at the Mold Argoedl ■Colliery, which was flooded out. His mother! died about fifteen years ago, and he lost the Blast member of his family about three yearsB ■ago, when his sister died in his native town.B § Mr Owen, who was never married, lived with his sister until her death in a cottage in Maesydre, but subsequently he built a pretty villa in the same locality known as Cae'r Ffynnon. Here he resided for a few years, but he subsequently sold the property and took apartments in New-street, not far from his business premises, where he died. Mr Owen was the oldest preacher on the Flint- shire lists of Calvinistic Methodist ministers without ministerial charge. He was a staunch Liberal, and took latterly a keen interest in public affairs. He was recently appointed a justice of the peace for Flintshire, and was also the chairman of the Mold Urban B District Council. ■ The death of the author of Rhys Lewis" B is the most serious loss which Welsh litera-B ture has sustained since Oeiriog sang hisfl Oriau Olaf and passed into the shades.B Daniel Owen was not merely the leading writer of Welsh fiction, but virtually theB only novelist of genius that the PuritanismB of the Principality has produced. To WalesB it Js as if she had been bereaved of CharlesB Dickens or William Makepeace Thackeray, to both of whom he bore a partial resem- blance in humour and style. He had no forerunners, and ha has apparently left no successor. It was hoped by many that he was destined to be the founder of a school of Welsh fiction; but he failed to find ( imitators who possessed any of his ability, ( and all expectations of the kind which may have been cherised have died with him. B] H HIS WORKS. B A daily contemporary says In estima- ting his services to Welsh literature, it is necessary to remember that he had not only to make a new departure, but to reconcile Hthe Welsh reading public to the change. HThis double task he successfully accom- plished in "Rhys Lewis," which at once won its way into popular favour, and soon passed into a second edition. The question has often been asked how he contrived to conciliate a public opinion which in Wales has always regarded with contempt and dis irust all professed works of the imagination. The method by which he disarmed hostile criticism could not have been more skilfully adapted to its end if it had been deliberately chosen for that purpose. "Rhys Lewis is essentially a religious novel, and gives a more vivid portrayal of the effects of the Calvinistic revival than "Adam Bede does of the Methodist movement. Its hero is a young man, the son of a poor but pious mother, who after many trials and a long spiritual probation enters Bala College, like Daniel Owen himself, is trained for the ministry, and ultimately reaches the climax of his early ambition in a call to a church. The enemies of fiction were further pleased by the knowledge that the book was largely autobiographical. Rhys Lewis loses his brother at an early age through a colliery accident, precisely as Daniel Owen did. Mary Lewis, the mother of the hero, is understood to be a faithful sketch of the novelist's own mother, a simple, narrow- minded, yet not ignorant, sternly pious woman. The pathos and vividness of this charming creation would have betrayed the hand of a son, even if external evidence of the identity were lacking. The Bala students are drawn to the life. Will Bryan was recognised by those who knew the original, and so with the other characters. So far! as is known not a word of protest was uttered by any of the leaders of religious thought against the daring experiment of a Welsh novel by a Welsh minister. Daniel Owen had effectively muzzled the bigots. i Whether he did this of set purpose it would be difficult to say. But there can be little doubt that his impunity emboldened him to prccsed. In a touching preface to his second notable work, The Trials of Enoch Hughes," he expressed the hope that the narrowness of a past age was dying and that^ it would soon become impossible™ for the pious old deacon to weep over the pages of the "Pilgrim's Progress," and at ;he same time to denounce the Welsh. aovelist as a man who toM lies to pleasel! ools. "Enoch Hughes" is undoubtedly^ nuch more secular in spirit than its im-|| nediate predecessor. Its hero, if it can beM ;aid to possess one, is a commonplace andjft not over religious shopkeeper. A swindling s limning agent holds a prominent place in it' t [«pages, while the saintly and ideacon Abel Hughes is replaced by thell ^narrow pietist David Davies. His thirdf! anoyel, Gwen Tomes," has .still less of the!! ^religious element. It is a faithful descrip-|| Ition of the more degraded class of Welshflj farmer. The ignorant, penurious Edwardla Thomas, with his fondness for boozing, his good-for-nothing son who spends his time in aping his social superiors, are types .which were not unfrequently to be found in the Welsh farmhouse of half a century ago. I i" Gwen Tomos" is enlivened with cock-B gfights, a hunting-field disaster, and about at Sfisticuffs, features which plainly show that the author could now venture to write as he pleased. B Mr Daniel Owen's characteristics as a gwriter can be very briefly summarised. His ||giffc of narration was considerable, as w. jlproved by his volume of short storio- Sentitled Straeon y Pentan," but he liri.t singularlv little skill in the construction of a plot. "Rhys Lewis" has virtually no Bjmystery to be unravelled. The denoue- gjment of "Enoch Hughes" is simply in- fficredible and rather revolting, while that of "Gwen Tomos" is too tiresome to read. j||But he atones for his weakness in this re- Sispect by his extraordinary power of charac- ||ter drawing, by his broad and comic humour, gland by his genuine pathos, His main defect ||was a lack of artistic constraint, and a slovenliness of style which has helped to make him difficult to translate. The English version of "Rhys Lewis" entirely failed to ^reproduce the peculiar excellencies of the Horiginal, and the Hon. Claud Vivian's ^rendering of "Enoch Hughes" cannot be ^pronounced a brilliant success. S CONDOLENCE. B At a special meeting of the Mold Urban Council, on Tuesday night, a vote of con- dolence and sympathy was passed with the relatives of Mr Daniel Owen. Mr Marston, ||m seconding, said that the loss sustained ■was a national one, and the literature of gWales had suffered an irreparable blow. 11 THE FUNERAL. H At Mold, on Thursday, the remains of the late Mr Daniel Owen, the Welsh novelist, Slwere interred in the general cemetery. ggAbout 300 townsfolk assembled at the Baptist Chapel, New-street, where Professor Ellis Edwards (Bala) and others conducted a funeral service. The Mold Urban District Council, the Intermediate School Governing Body, the Flintshire magistracy, and the Alto Lodge of Independence were re- Spresented, and the only relatives Mr Owen left behind, Mrs Sewell (Manchester), and the Misses Owen (Buckley), his nieces, were the chief mourners. Among those present were Messrs H. Lloyd-Jones, T. Parry, and gE. Wheldon (Flintshire magistrates). Coun- cillors J. "S. Davies, W. P. Jones, W. Wright, HJ. T. Morgan, H. J. Roberts, G. H. Simon, Hthe Revs George Jones, Northop; E. M. ^Roderick (vicar of Mold), Stephen Jones. IgPowell Hughes, E. Bithell, Leeswocd Owen ILloyd, Caergwrle; H. W. Griffiths, Rhos ||esmor, &c. During the services the Rev |iJohn Owen read letters of apology for inability to attend from a number of public men, including Principal Roberts, Aberyst- wyth, and Archdeacon Howell.
§ CARNARVONSHIRE JOINT I SANITARY COMMITTEE. MEDICAL OFFICER APPOINTED. A special meeting of this committee was held at Portmadoc on Thursday. Mr R. M.

The sub- H to submit to the general committee from II comn-tttee had selected the following names VMch to elect the medEctlJ officer: —Dr Fraser, Dr Gornall, Dr Jones (London), Dr Stephens, and Dr Wiljuwby. It was stated that the salary was £ 694. ,Mr Thomas Owen said he had particular pleasure in proposing the appointment of Dr Fraser. His alxKties were well known throughout the district. He had been prac- t-tng at Llangefi i for two years. There and generally throughout Anglesey its less had been greatly felt. On Ins departure a sub- stantial testimonial had been presented to Inm. As to his subsequent career, they ali • Dr Rees and Dr Low spoke very highly of his abides. He had pleasure in adding that Dr Eraser was thoroughly ac- quaintecr with the Welsh language, and a total abstainer from intoxicating drinks. Mr J. T. Jones, Criccieth. heartily sup- ported the motion. During the illness of Dr Rees, Mr Fraser had performed the duties of the office in a thoroughly efficient manner. Mr Jones proceeded to cite instances of good work done by Dr Fraser. Dr Hughes, Penmaenmlawr, dwelt 011 the scientific attainments of Dr Fraser. It was very important to appoint an officer able to make an accurate diagnosis in a doubtful case of alleged zymotic diseases. Dr Fraser was a good chemr.st, with an extensive experience in chemical research. Although there were other highly capable and nveritonous appli- than appoint Dr Fraser. cants, he (i (I not think thev could do better Dr Roland Jones, Bangor, regretted that the candidate whom he thought most highly of did not possess a knowledge of Welsh. He had nothing whatever to say against Dr Fraser. But taking everything into consider- ation, he felt bound to support the candida- t-ure of Dr Stephens. His acquirements were much superior to those of any other appli- cant and his testimonials were exceedingly favourable. In conclusion, he added Hwt he was not working in concert with anyone. I Dr Giiflith, Carnarvon, differed from Dr Remand Jones with reference to the merits of Dr Fraser as compared ii-itli other can- didates. He placed Dr Fraser not fourth, but second in the list as regards ncquirements. Dr Roland Jones's motion not ha\ing been seconded, fell through. | There being no other proposal, Dr Fraser was dulv appcinted, the chairman warmly congratulating the members of the committee5 upon their unanimity. 1 It was deeded to pay the second classK traveling fares of the candidates.

AGRICULT V i! i: IX •> LIT H WALES. [FROM AN OCCAS!' N, .>:NT.] The weather is maui •; M as i write. Last Friday morning, ui, iuLis, I regis- tered three degrees ut iiW. -u itie foliage which I referred tu lasu leniauiing oil the trees all tiliie will all come otf during die i- ;ale, Grass will also cease to grow, auu ii.iy and roots will be in request as supplementary fodder. Cattle are looking exceptionally well, us, indeed, they have all the summer, despite the drought. A farmer keeping a large herd of dairy stock, told me that his milk supply had not fallen ott' during the hottest season of the year, but lie thought some of the cattle had been affected by the hot fly. It stands to reason that when these stinging pests drive the cattle to madness almost, and send them careering round the fields at lu-adiong speed, the milk supply is certain to diminish. In the hot days, if cattle can be graz • >. in a field near a brook or river, it is a great advantage, as, according to Miss Or me rod, the well-known entomoiugist, the fly which stings the. cattle and lays the egg of the warble maggot, will not pursue the cattle if they take to water. One can appreciate the wisdom of the cattle in standing in the pools, and streams, as they always do if they have the opportunity in summer time. By the way, it is (juice possible to exter- minate the bot fly which produces the mag- got. If you pass your hand over the backs of the cattle, you will speedily- ascertain the spot where the wretched maggut is burrowing into the hide and Jles-h of the un- fortunate victim. Miss Ormerod states that the maggot must breathe through spores at the opening, and if this hole is covered up with McDougalTs smear, or any other sticky non-poisonous substance, the maggot dies. Failing a smear, the maggot may be squeezed out. The fly is the product of the maggot, and if the poor beasts are cleared of the mag- gots year after year, it is possible to do away with the flies. This has been done already, under her instructions, in the Bunbury district of Cheshire. Here the boys at the Bunbury Aldersey Grammar School went to work, aid one vear des- troyed hundreds of the maggots the suc- ceeding year, they were fewer, until at the present time the bot tiy has been exter- niinated to the comfort of the cattle, the increase of the milk supply, and the pre- servation of tiio hides. The reports of last week's cattle markets are depressing reading. Everywhere, there was che same stagnation, the same heavy supply, coupled with an indifferent demand. If you remember. I stated, three weeks ago (after a run through the country), that S?! £ S the utfcer abse,lce of grass in the Midlands and Southern counties, the prices of all kinds of stock must be seriously affected. erification has followed predic- tion only too speedily, fcr since then all cattle have dropped 10s to 15s per head, with a dull sale at that. As usual (says ''Merlin"' in the "Field"), the number of oxen from the United States is less, and for this month it reaches 8000 but this deficiency is made up by increased receipts from Canada, the Argentine, and Australia. It appears that pleuro-pneu- monia was found in the cattle landed from the "Southern Cross" from Sydney, and consequently all were slaughtered very speedily. The long voyage from Australasia has been t'therto against the import of frozen beef from thence, but if the import I • r0XVl wore st( pped, the process by which fresh beef could be landed here in perfect condition w >i Id soon be adopted and with success. Out of the number of Jive sheep landed, 10,046 came from Iceland, and more are expected. Clearly the better relative prices of sheep are artra: ting larger numbers, which are more and more attain- ing to better quality. The results of the policy of the large purchases made by our colonies and foreign countries of our best stock for breeding are very apparent, and their influence is being seen more clearjv every year.
