Lady Roberts and Temperance. The annual meeting of the Carnarvon Council of the Women's Temperance Asso- ciation was held on Thursday. Lady Roberts, in the course of an ad- dress, reviewed the past history of the tem- perance movement, and showed how now one and then another prejudice against total abstinence had broken down. The work of the pioneers was not yet over. The present generation of workers had to contend with many stumbling-blocks. More education was required not only of the children in the schools, but of the parents, especially of the mothers. If the children could not be taught temperance in the schools—which, however, she hoped they all would be be- fore long—they could be taught in the home by precept and example. They required to clear the road of the grocer's licence, which was such a snare to the women in this country. The Church must also be cleared from all connection with the drink traffic, and to make it impossible for the drink trade to have any influence in our national or municipal life. A great fight would have to be fought before the road of our national life would be made the safe highway that they should like to see for their children's feet to tread. (Hear, hear.)
