SAIGHALL. THE RECENT FARM FIRE.—The serious fire at Green Farm puts one in mind of the necessity for the formation of a fire brigade for the district. The Local Government Act of 1894 gives power to local authorities to establish brigades. THE STORMS.—The thunderstorms and the accompanying deluges of rain missed this dis- trict almost entirely, and our gardens and fields are literally parched up. The ordinary imple- ments of horticulture are absolutely useless, as nothing less than a steam cultivator would break the hard soil. A great scarcity of water prevails throughout the entire district, many cottagers having to travel long distances for a supply, which is very frequently of extremely doubtful purity. THE CHURCH.—The Rev. G. J. Everest, M.A., of Teynham, Kent, is in charge of the parish for the present month, during the absence of the vicar, who has gone north on a well-earned holiday. The vicar, who takes a warm interest in the local Foresters' court, makes special men- tion in this month's parish magazine of the good work carried on by Court Sellars. At a recently held meeting of the church council it was announced that the debt still remaining on All, Saints' Church was £285, but if all interested j in church work will put their shoulders to the wheel the church will soon be free from debt. 1 SALE OF WORK AND GARDEN PARTY.—The trustees of the Primitive Methodist Chapel having decided to renovate and refurnish the building at a cost of JE80, a sale of work and garden party was held at Mr. John Minshull's, Mollington, on Wednesday afternoon. About 250 persons sat down to tea, the visitors includ- ing the Revs. W. R. Bird, H. Davenport, and T. Kynaston. After tea a concert was held in a tent, and it proved a great success. The Misses and Master Savin, of Birken- head gave selections on the violin and mandoline, with pianoforte accom- paniment, in a highly creditable manner. Mr. John Vernon's male voice party, Miss Hales, and Miss Graham contributed vocal pieces with success, while Miss M. Hughes and A. Martin, Mollington, were as successful as ever—indeed the efforts of all the performers were highly appreciated by the large audience. The financial result was satisfactory, the nett profit being about £25.
