"THE FARMER'S FRIEND."—Lord Carrington, the President of the Hoard ut Agriculture, has been giving another of his fascinating "at homes" to farmers at the offices of the Board of Agriculture. When his lordship instituted this feature in 1906, it was regarded as a revolutionary departure, daringly defiant of all the canons of good red tape but now the at homes have come to be regarded as hardy annuals, and quite the usual order of things. They are attended by about a hundred yeomen farmers who are up in Lunnon for the Cattle Show. There is no fuss or ceremony, and the visitors, between their sips of sherry, discuss turnips and horses with their affable host, not without a suspicion of heckling occasionally, but always with delightful informality. The originator of these unconventional functions was numbered among the late King Edward s very oldest friends. Lord Carrington's name is really Smith—just Smith, and no other. A good story is told concerning the bestowal of tii*» inoaruun thf» first of his line. He had — • asked Pitt for permission to drive his carriage from his residence in Whitehall through the Horse Guards. No," said Pitt, I can t do that, but I 11 tell you what I'll do. I'll make you a peer." And he did. This peer was the first man connected with trade to be given a seat in the House of Lords, and the present Lord Carrington—the farmer's friend—has carried on the family tradition by constantly displaying an entire absence of "side.

And for this reason, that three young members of the club were for the first time in their lives going to speak in public. (Applause). His advice to young men was, Don't be dictated to by anyone on religious, political, or social matters. Read, study, and think for your- selves. Train your memory to such an extent that you will always have the right answer ready when a question is asked you. Stick to your principles and hang the con- sequences. (Applause). The young men then proceeded with the reading of their papers. Mr T. O. Roberts took "The abuse of British politics." Candidly, I have never listened to anything finer than this by a young man of twenty. With the Editor's permission the paper will find its way to the columns of the Weekly Nervs one of these next days. Mr Thos. Llewellyn Williams's paper was a humorous one on Law Mr Bullem v. Boatem," while Mr William Davies's paper on "The culture of the affections" was extremely interesting. Others who spoke were the Rev J. H. Davies, Rev David Morris, and Mr David Thomas.

Brockle- hurst, of Perthi, St. Mary's-road, representa- tive of the Manchester Guardian, has been prevailed upon to retain the office of secre- tary to the Autumn Concerts Committee. The good work done by him in the secretarial department was far heavier than people im- agined, and only upon the understanding that he was given clerical help, did Mr. Brockle- hurst consent to continue as secretary. PROPOSED RECREATION GROUND.— At Friday's meeting of the Urban District Council the Chairman, Mr. Ernest E. Bone, J.P., said he had had an interview with Lord Mostvn upon the above matter, who pro- mised that within six months he would sub- mit proposals for the sale to the Council of the cricket field, probably including a some- what enlarged area, and also for the sale or lease of another recreation ground in the neighbourhood of, but not necessarily iden- tical with, the Council Field now rented from the Estate. MOTOR OMNIBUS LICENCES—Mr. Fred 1.
