TRUSTEE SAVINGS BANKS. The importance of Savings Banks, and their Influence on the well-being of very large lumbers of the working and even the middle Masses, can hardly be over-estimated. The practice of thrift is at the bottom of all National as well as personal prosperity. The country in which the labouring people habitually spend all their wages, even when fchege are at the highest rate, cannot be reg-mled 811 being in a satisfactory condition. The pro- gress of the working classes themselves depends for less on the rate of wages—which in many instances are wastrd when in excess of the actual requirements of their daily life than On their careful expenditnre" and thrifty ftnnag*ment, with that practice of habitual which enables every man, however humble his means, to better his position. The trustee savings banks that have been established for many years, though too frc- quently faulty in their management, and in 80IDe instances disastrous to thrir depositors, hare in their time afforded the opportunity of husbanding their savings to many thousands of persons. At the piesent time there are no less than forty-five millions of money, *lm<>st exclusively that of the working classes, invested in these banks. Their 8,lvency and good management are, there- fore, mittors of the highest national impor- tance. Nevertheless, it is known to every- one who takes an interest in these subjects that the trustee savings banks do not offer ^byjlnte security, although the low rate of interest-namely, 2! per cent.—is compatible and should be accompanied by, absolute and perfect 'security. As the Post office Savings banks offer the same rate of interest, "re much more convenient to the depositor in their mode of working, offer far greater facilities for the deposit and withdrawal of money, and at the same time afford the most Perfect security existing in the whole world — that of the solvency of the British nation as represented by Her Majesty's Government— it may seem to many surprising that any persons should have recourse to trustee savings banks, when they can avail themselves of the facilities afforde 1 by the nearest jKut-office. The reason is not perhaps far to seek. Few take the trouble to think; they are led •Tray by the glamour of gr"at names. The local magnate who owns half the county, the Neighbouring city, and all its appurtenances, is one of the trustees of the city savings bank and the prospectus is issued in terms which imply that the security is guaranteed by the Government stating that all the funds are lnrested in Government security, although there is no guarantee that a large proportion may not be misapplied in place of being invested. These considerations prevail, and there is to the ordinary investor something much more dignified and imposing in the truatee savings bank, with its plate glass windows, long list of affluent trustees, and ^ell-dressed officials, than in the Post-office savings bank at the grocer's shop, where the money is taken by the telegraph clerk—often a girl not out of her teens—and thrown care- lessly into the till along with the pennies re- ceived for postage stamps. Nevertheless, there is this important distinction—the trustee banks do dot afford that absolute security to the depositors which the Post-office Savings Bank unquestionably offers. The trustees in many cases have not done their duty. They have allowed the banks to be defrauded by dishonest officials for years, by clumsy thefts which the most ordinary precaution would have immediately brought to light. A t the Cardiff Bank £30,000 of the depositor's money was stolen by one of the officers by means so patent that only through extreme negligence on the part of the trustees could they have been over- loukel. At the Macclesfield Bank, again, every opportunity was afforded to a junior clerk to steal, and, although he only took £4000, he might have taken much more. In many other cases the audit as prescribed by the Government has not been carried out. In some cases the actual thieves have been punished, but the trustees whose inefficiency and inactivity led to the opportunities which gave rise to "the frauds, have escaped, leaving the losses to fall upon the innocent depositors. It is a relief to turn from these unsatis- factory institutions to the Post-office Savings Banks, which take sums as low as Is. which pay an interest of 2! per cent., or 6d. per annum for every sovereign invested which offer, as we have said, undeniable security, and which are so constituted that any pecu- lation or theft of an official cannot fall upon the depositors. With such advantages before them, depjsitors in ordinary savings banks have only themselves to thank, if they prefer the insecurity of irresponsible trustees to the absolute security and immunity from loss that is offered by the Government through the Post-office Savings Bank.—The Queen.
STAMMERING. This may be acquired by imitation, as has been often done, but there must be a faulty nerve cord or nerve centre to account for stuttering. It is purely a nervous disorder, the nerves of the tongue (hypo-glossal) & the face (the facial) being at fault. These nerves have their origin in the base of the brain at a point at the back of the ears, and where the faulty anatomical bolt, if we may he permitted so to call it, may be found. Although born with an unstable nerve centre at thesejpoints, they are 8ubject to training, and the fault may be over- come. The ordinary case of stuttering is manifested by a constant effort to supplant every vowel with a letter b or 1. In some cases the mouth is closed as if riveted, upon an attempt to speak. In others, the effort to speak is accompanied by a swaying of the body from side to side, or a jerking of the feet or the head more or less violently. All these symptoms are increased when in the company of strangers. The aforesaid nerves act fitfully, and the speaker cannot co-ordinate the lips, tongue, larynx, or jaw into harmonious action. In other words, these organs are having fits. The remedial measures are medical and mental, or psychological. At times there appear those who claim to have a monopoly on the cure of this truuble. When their chief merits are known, there are found to be mental treatment combined with elocutionary exercises. They will ask the patient to pronounce simple words in a measured manner and very deliberately, and in the meantime strive to inspire a large degree of self-confidence. It is sometimes useful to fill the lungs with air to the fullest before beginning a sentence. Another good exercise is to place a stick between the teeth, and constantly and forcibly bite the same when trying to talk. These measures give the faulty nerves a task to execute, of a motor nature, which engages all their energy a sort of a fixedness of purpose that suffices to steady the crazy nerves. These measures, with a properly chosen remedy, will cure stammer- ing.
■' A TIDINESS. Few people know how to be tidy fewer still have any idea of how important it is to be tidy in every detail through life. At first sight it seems as if no well-bred, well-educated, sensible woman could be other than tidy—certainly, no well-dressed one could be; and yet well-bred, well-educated, well- dressed women very often are and they would often be surprised if they knew the vast amount of inconvenience and annoyance their untidiness causes. Latterly, there seems to have arisen a prejudice against tidiness mat y people—women especiaJly-confound it with primness, others with positive narrowminded- ness. Others think disorder fashionable; others firmly believe it to be the sign of a great mind others think it only means "Still to bo neat, still lo bo drest As she were going to a feast." It really means much more than that. The neatness of personal attire and personal appearance is a small matter, though an imperative duty; it is mental tidiness that is needed to make the daily routine work smoothly. Neatness, order, method, regula- rity, punctuality, all may come under the head of tidiness for want of a more comprehen- sive woid and how many women possess any two out of these five qualifications? how few know how to combine them with tact, and without exaggeration 1 How nearly a tidy woman—tidy in her dress, her house, her manner, her thoughts-pproaches the poet's ideal- "——perfect woman nobly planned, To warn, to comfort, and command." Unfortunately, however, many people dislike the perfect woman others consider her a nuisance but that is only because they see but one side of her tidiness. The perfect woman nobly planned is usually supposed to be a woman of one idea, which she clings to most tenaciously; she is also (frequently) an intolerant woman, with -8mall patience for other people's infirmities, and an over-whelm- ing opinion of her own capacity. The perfect woman," is often given to fault-finding, the tidy woman is given to fault-righting; the "perfect woman," as most people understand her, will "warn" in the sweetest voice, and "command" an octave higher, but she does not, perhaps, bestow "comfort" on an offend- ing housemaid in short, the "perfect woman" is a trifle too good for "ordinary human nature." But the tidy woman, when she sees a fault anywhere, rectifies it first and com- plains after. If the drawing-room curtains are awry, the breakfast-cloth asknew, the plants in the windows put in "anyhow," the really tidy woman sets things straight, and then, if she is patient and long-suffering, and full of gentlentss and meekness, she will remonstrate with those to whom the disorder is due; but if she is a wise woman as well as tidy, she will see to the things herself, and trust to example rather than lecturing for few servants can resist the force of a good example, if it is set before them long enough. A short article could never set forth the innumerable blessings that a tidy woman can bestowe on those around her, and if she is only sensible enough not to render the home a misery through carrying the principle to excess, her family will not be slow in recog- nising her efforts and following her example.
FURZE FOR STOCK. Furze, or gorse, succeeds well on most soils, provided they are not exposed to the cutting east winds. Ground, having a western or southern aspect, should, if possible, be chosen. The writer, who has grown furze for stock- feeding for twenty years has often had his crop of nice succulent gorse completely spoilt on land having a north-east exposure by a few hours' severe wind (accompanied by frost) from that quarter. Once nipped, it never recovers itself until the following summer, but becomes completely dried up and withered as far as the young growth— the most succulent part of the plant-i con- cerned. Having decided upon a favourable situation the next point is to see that the land is thoroughly clean and in good heart. The present time is very suitable for cleaning the ground, and then taking a crop of late turnips —such as Mammoth Purple Top—and feed- ing them off by sheep during the ensuing winter. This will be the best possible pre- paration for gorse. The seed can be procured from any of the leading seedsmen, and should be sown like clover-seed with a crop of oats or barley in April. It is rather an expensive crop to grow in the first instance, as a large quantity of seed requires to be sown in order to ensure a good crop. Disappointment is pretty sure to result unless 351b. or 401b. in sown broadcast, or, say, two-thirds of that quantity if drilled. Four or five hundredweight of superphosphate or dissolved bones should be applied at the time of sowing. This is very important, as superphosphate, or bone-manure, has a most marked effect on the growth of the young gorse, and its application or omission may make all the difference between success and failure. Some people prefer to sow the furze seed by itself—i.e., without taking a corn crop, and the writer has found this plan to answer well in ordinary seasons. The young gorse will be ready to cut for cattle-feeding purposes in about 18 months after sowing, and on good land thenceforth every year for 20 or 30 years. The old adage "What is wotth doing is worth doing well" applies with peculiar force to the cultivation of furze. It has been well remarked that badly cultivated furze is the most unprofitable of all crops; and it is probably equally true that a well-grown crop is the most profitable use to which a few acres of land can be put. Indeed, good authorities estimate that an acre of well-cultivated furze will produce more food for stock than four acres of good hay. Both horses and sheep thrive on it as well as housed stock. I believe there is no better food for young horses during the winter months than chopped furze. They will grow well, and keep fat and sleek upon it. The ash of the plant contains about 14 per cent. of lime and over 21 per cent, of phosphoric acid, which go far to explain the effect of a good dressing of superphosphate or bones. When grown on good land, the plant springs up again so quickly at the return of spring that an annual cutting may be taken. Gorse of one year's growth also on such land is comparatively tender, and only requires chopping up in a good chalf-cutter to be relished by all descriptions of farm stock. My machine, by a well-known firm, geared to one-eight of an inch cut, prepares gorse for horses, cattle, & sheep even young calves will eat it chopped up thus fine without any difficulty. Where, owing to the poverty of the soil, the gorse has to remain two years betweeen each cutting, something more com- plicated is required to reduce this stronger and harsher growth. A machine has lately o been brought out by a well-known firm in Ireland which is said to be very efficient in such cases. It is called a Masticator.
THE 1891 NATIONAL EISTEDDFOD. A meeting of the committee for promoting the application that the National Eisteddfod, 1891, he held at Pontypridd was held on Friday last. The proceedings were most enthusiastic. It was felt that there would be no ditticulty in pioviding a sufficient guarantee to meet the demands of the National Eisteddfod Association, and alreso- lution to make formal application having bcn agreed to, arrangements were made for a public meeting to be held at the Town-ball on Monday evening, under the presidency of his Honour Judge Gwilym Williams.

AN INTERESTING LETTER. The following letter, recei fed bl a correspon- dent, will be of interest to nuny of our readers at this season of the year, when so many are flitting here and there for change of air, and to recruit their health, some at the Wells, others at tbo different watering places, and others as touri its, flitting from place to place to enjoy their holidays Dear Friend, Here am I at last, released from my daily carrs and worry, at our favourite watering nlace, where I arrived three days ago, and where I intend spending my sunnn r ho.idays. I have been overwork-d, and felt the need of rest and a ebange of air. When I arrir-d here I acted upon your suggestion, and went ut once to consult Dr who is reputed the best l'hyoi.;ian in this part of the country. Toil have overworked yourself,' said he, I many do no, some bodily, and others mentally. The mother—with the worry and cares of household duties; the father, who, perhaps is a collier, miner, metal worker, mill hand, labourer, by over exertion, or working for too many hours in the day the ch.ldren, many of them by over-pressure at school the student, by too elose application to his studies as well as the merchant and clerk at their desks, all are overworked, and the result is similar in all oases. You need three things. (1) Perfect rest from your usual cares. (2). A change of air and scenery, and (S). A course of some good tonic medicine.' I asked him to give me a prescription to obtain what he deemed would be most beneficial to me, when he replied, I T know of nothing that will do you more good than a course of Gwilym Evans' Quinine Bitten.' I smiled incredulously, when I heard him prescribe a Patent Medicine. He noted uiy surprise, and observed, It seems strange, does it not, to hear a medical man advising people to take the preparations of other people P 1 am aware that many of these patent medicines do more harm than good, but I have no hesitation in recommending this. It is the best tonic that I know of. and can injure no one. It has been very beneficial to many who have takon a course of it with a change of Air.' I paid him his usual consul- tation fee, and went direct to the chemist to obtain a bottle of Quinine Hitlers, but he kept none in stock. I then wrote to the Q dnine Bitters Co. at Llanelly, for a 4s 61 bottle, and received it by rettsrn of post. Ton know that visitors at this place soon got on friendly terine with each other, and during the d-ty I learned from several persons that they take the Quinine Bitters as it 'pick-me-up' during their holidays, and bring a couple of battles with tuem. When returning to my lodgings this evening, I met the chemist, who told me he had received several applications for Quinine Bitters after I had been there seeking it, and that be had seat for a supply of both sizes-2a 9d and 4s 6d, so that, should I require it again, I might depend upon being supplietl at his shop, as he intended to keep it always in stock henceforth. I thanked him for the information, and hurried on to scribble you a few lines by this post. The weather here is delightful, and plenty of merry company. I shall expect you to join me in a few days.— Yours, &e.
