WHITCHURCH. Boy's EXTRAORDINARY CRIMINAL RECORD.— At Whitchurch, on Friday afternoon, William Griffiths, aged ten, pleaded guilty to stealing 10s. belonging to Allen Taylor, lodging-house keeper. With part of the money Griffiths had a trip to Manchester, and returning, purchased a fishing rod. Mr. Cann, police court missionary, Shrewsbury, offered to take charge of the boy, and take him immediately to Dr. Stephenson's Children's Home at Birmingham, to which the magistrates and the boy's father consented. Five previous convictions were recorded—three for theft and two for housebreaking.—At the same court, Harry Bentinck, aged nine, was ordered to receive three strokes with a birch- rod for setting fire to a stack of hay. CHURCH SUNDAY SCHOOL TREAT. — The children attending these schools, to the number of about 500, had their annual treat on Tuesday afternoon. This year, by the kind invitation of Mr. G. P. Thompson, it was held in his beautiful grounds at Dodington. A procession was formed at the schools at 2.15, and headed by the volunteer band, the scholars marched to church, where a short service was held. The children afterwards marched to Mr. Thompson's residence where tea was served on the lawn. Sports were held for prizes kindly provided by Mr. Thompson. FLOWER SHOW AND SPORTS.—The 17th annual Floral and Horticultural Show was held on Wednesday, in Mossfields Park, by permission of Mr. J. Jones. There were some 620 exhibits, which were scarcely up to the average, but the unusual long spell of fine weather will account for this. Whatever was deficient in quantity was made up in quality, the judges—Messrs. T. R. Cuckney, gardener to Mrs. A. P. Heywood- I/onsdale, and Charles Flack, gardener to the Marquis of Cholmondeley—agreeing that in this respect it was most satisfactory. Among the honorary exhibitors were Lord Kenyon, Hon. Mrs. E. Kenyon, Mr. J. Jones, and Mr. W. H. Jones, Station Nurseries, each making a very good and attractive display. Capt. R. W. Ethelston is the president of the show, the lady patronesses being Mrs. Heywood-Lonsdale, Mrs. Sandford, Mrs. Nottingham, the Misses Kent, and Mrs. Churton. There is a large committee, and the whole arrangements, under the immediate superintendence of the energetic and obliging secretary, Mr. Hugh Booth Lee (solicitor), were of the most perfect kind. There was a keen competition for mest of the events in the sports. The officials were:—Judges, Mr. J. Jones, Capt. Ethelston, Mr. J. Walker, and Mr. C. W. Alston (Hanmer); starter, Mr. H. H. Etches; handicappers, Messrs. T. P. Wynn, E. W. Speed, and John Woollam.
