"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.
