VACCINATION FEES. Tho Local Government Board circular letter of the 27th September was read with respect. to the foes to bo paid in future to public vaccinators. Replies wero received from the public vaccina- tors under tho Board. Dr. T. L. Kenrick Davies, Llandudno, replied: "As I am not in favour of 'sweated' labour of any sort, I cannot accept these terms. Surely, your Board, in offering them, cannot be cogni- sant. of the labour entailed and time spent in performing tho operation of vaccination in ac- cordance with the requirements of the Local Government Board or of the status of the medical,, profession. Dr. R. Arthur Prichard, Conway, wrote: I must respectfully but nevertheless strongly pro- test against the reduction of the fees that are suggested, and would ask that tho Board should reconsider the matter. When they know that I have frequently gone for miles into t.he country more than once to one case, and found that the child was not fit for vaccination, and in some cases no successful vaccination in tho end takes placc, and for which no fees are provided, I consider that even the existing fees are at times inadequate for the duties entailed, as there are no fees at all for many fruitless journeys. Dr Morris, Old Colwyn, wrote: "When I know that the duties of a public vaccinator under the new regime entail at least six times the trouble it did under the old, I feel certain that the iruArdians hava not realised injustice, which they contemplate inflicting upon their vaccinating officials. However, I shall require to consult with my colleagues, and probably ask for an in- terview with the guardians." It was recommended that the clerk should pre- pare an account of the number of cases of suc- cassful vaccinations for the twelve months ended September. 1907. and the amounts paid to the public vacctnators in respect of such cases; that a special meeting of the committee be fixed to consider the question, after the clerk has pre- pnred the statement, and that a second meeting bo held, at which the doctors should be present to discuss the question of the fees with the committee; that the clerk again write to the Unions alreadv written to with regard to the fees. asking what they had finally agreed to pay their public vaccinators. An amendment was moved that the meeting, with the doctors, be held an hour after that of the committee, but. it was defoated. RATE COLLECTORSHIP. 'A letter was read from the Conway Corporation asking the guardians not to combine the rate coliectorship of Llanrhos with any parish outside thpir txx-ough, as it was their opinion that it would be to tha mutual advantage of the Council and guariia.ns that, at some future time, that tho poor-rate "olIeL-t.orship in the borough should be held by one and the same person. A letter was also read from the Local Govern- ment Board relative to the application by the Llandudno Urban District Council for an order under section 3J of the Local Government Board Act. 894, conferring oert-ain powers on them, and forwarding copy of letter which they had received from the Council, and stating that they proposed to issue an order, conferring on such Council the power to appoint and revoke the apoointment of assistant overseer. order will provide for the continuance in office of Mr Bellis, as assistant overseer, and the Board also (►•'op ise conferring on the Council tho powers of nvot-seers mentioned in Section 6 of the Act of 1894. It was also pointed out that the powers they propose to confer are amongst the powers of oversoers which are now exeroisable by the Parish Council of a rural parish, and that the transfer- ence of such to the Council will not affect tho powers a.nd duties of wverseers in respect of the making of the valuation lists. The Finance Committee recommended that a r/>ri!.v be sent to the Conway Corporation t.o tha effect that. this Board are now proceeding to appoint a collector of the poor rates for the Parishes of Llanrhos, Llangvstenin, and Penrhvn. It W, decided to advertise for a collector. SCHOOL ATTENDANCE OFFICERS. SUPERANNUATION CONTRIBUTIONS.

THE LLANRWST HOUSEBREAKING CHARGE. PRESTATYN HAIRDRESSER'S APPRENTICE CHARGED WITH ROBBERY AT LLANRWST. ACCUSED COMMITTED TO QUARTER SESSIONS. As reported in our last issue, considerable in- terest was taken in the alleged burglary cnargo preterred egainst a. Llanrwst man. and whon tne oourt opened on Monday last for tne hearing of the caso tnere was a rush for admittance. The magistrates on tho bericii were Dr. T. E. Jones (presiding), Messrs O. Isgoed Jones, E, Jones Owen, Jonn Black wall, W. J. Williams, Edward Mills, and William Hughes. Tne prisoner, whose name is Moses Davies, and resides with his parents in Back Watling-street, gave his age as 20 years, and his occupation as a hairdresser The charge against him was one of feloniously breaking and entering the residence of Mr E. P. Hughos, Bryn Conway, Station-road, and stealing therefrom one lady's gold ring, one knife, a small hand mirror, a piece of medallion biooch, a book of toilet papers, and a. purse con- taining 3Cs in gold and a receipt, and other articles on the evening of October 21st. Mr J. E. Humphreys appeared to prosccute, And Mr E Davies Jones represented the prisoner, Mr Humphreys, in opening, said that on the day in question which was harvest thanksgiving day in Llanrw?t, Mr and Mrs E. P. Hughos left the housa shortly before 3 o'clock for the purpobo of attending the Church service, and they did not, return home-until about 9 o'clock in the even- ing. As usual Mrs Hughes, had secured the back deer by bolting it, and had locked the front door and put the key in her pocket. On returning heme Mri Hughes left the front door open whilst she was lighting the gas in the pantry. While ciping so, she heard the back door cloJe gently. She then found it had become unbolted. She vent upstairs to the frcnt bedroom, and found a partially smoked cigarette left on the window frame, and again in the kitchen she found an. other piece. She also missel en opal ring which wai the first thing to load to prisoner's arrest. The receipt which was with the gold in the purse was found on the prisoner when searched. He had not oeen in employment for five weeks, and had earned no money, and yet on the morning after the burglary he went into a butcher's shop and asked for the change of a sovereign, which was given him. The following day he went to Colwyn Bay, and no doubt parted with a con- siderable portion of the money. He was not ar- rested for eight days after the robbery, so that there would be ample time for him to spend it all. In the face of these facts, ho (Mr Hum- phreys) felt that the magistrates would unhesi- tat.ingly come to the conclusion that there was a prima facie case against t-he prisoner. The Prosecutor identified the knife produced as his property. Tho ring he also identified, as he purchased it himself. The price was JB5 10s. Mr E. Davies Jones reserved the cross-examina- tion of each of the witnesses. Mrs Elizabeth Hughes, wife of the last wit- ness, described how she left. the house securely locked up before going out. The bathroom win- dow was open for the purposes of ventilation. They kept, two step ladders in the wash-house. The wash-house door was closed, but not locked. When she first got to the hous9 she went to light the pantry gas, and when she got back to the kitchen the oat rubbed against her. She was cer- tain she had locked the cat out before leaving in the afternoon on account of the parrot. Her attention was then drawn to the back door bang- ing, and she found that the bolt had been with- drawn. She lit up the kitchen and found a pitee of cigarotLe on Mr Hughes' chair. Mr Hughes did not smoke cigarettes, and she then became suspicious. In the. cupboard there were two tins of tobacco, one empty .and the other half full. The latter had disappeared, together with a pip". She left her purse, containing a sovereign, half sovereign, receipts, and two stamps in the drossar drawer, but when she ex- amined them the purse was gone. The receipt produced belonged to her. It was for some goods she had purchased at Rhyl the last week in June. She afterwards made an inspection of the front bedroom, which they occupied, and the first thing she noticed was a. piece of smoked cigarette on the window frame. The Venetian blind was also drawn up differently to what she usually did it. She went to the drawer which contained a watch, a short curb gold chain, and the ring produced, and they were all missing. Two pocket knives were also missed, and a rheumatic ring and a book of toilet papers. She then went to the back bedroom, and from tho dressing table a small pocket mirror was missing. She identi- fied the one produced, as it was about the last thing she used before leaving the house. She made a further search downstairs, and missed a handy pocket-knife with Mr Hughes' initials upon it. When going to call a neighbour, she noticed the step ladder put up against the wall. She then gave information to the police. Wm. Roberts, an assistant butcher with Ross Bros., Denbigh-street, said prisoner asked him for the change of a sovereign, which was given him. A day or two afterwards witness met the prisoner near the railway station, and walked up Station-road with him. Witness asked him which house had been robbed, and he at first hesitated, and then said he did not know, but afterwards pointed to the evidence of Mr E. P. Hughes. Witness further asked him how they got in. and he said, "By putting some steps against the wall." Joseph Thomas, joiner. Silin-square, remcm- bered tho prisoner coming up to him on tho iJanrwst bridge on Thursday, the 24th October. He was accompanied by Mr Kershaw. They wanted a football to go to the field, and as it was necessary to have three members, Kershaw said that the prisoner had only got-Is 6d to pay his subscription, but would pay the rest again. Prisoner then drew two pocket-knives out, and he said, "Will you have a knife, Joe?" Witness took it, and when he heard of the arrest he immediately handed the knife to P.C. Ilolgate. Richard Thomas Evans, a butcher living in Madoc View, said that about 11 a.m. on Tuesday, the 29th October, he saw the prisoner near the Albion Hotel, and asked him to give some assist- ance in collecting some sheep. Prisoner there- upon asked witness to buy the ring produced. Ho agreed to pay him 5s 6d for it. on condition that he gave him a hand with the sheep. Witness paid him 3s 6d on account. Prisoner said ho found the ring at Whitsuntide, and that he had cried it about tho town, and advertised it in the newspapers. Witness took the ring to a watchmaker, and found that it was a valuable one. He searched for prisoner, and told him that he did not think the ring was honest, and asked for his money back. Prisoner's reply was that he had no money, but would give it him in the morning. He afterwards met P.C. Hoi- gate, and showed the ring to him. After giv- ing him certain information he immediately took possession of it, and together they went up to the prisoner. Holgate asked the latter if he sold the ring, and he replied in the affirmative, and was afterwards removed to the lock-up. Supt Woollan, repeated the evidence he had given in the previous court, and added that it was possible for a small person to get in through the bathroom window from the top step of the ladder, as there was an iron rod driven into the wall, on which he could place his.foot. In money the prisoner, when searched, had 2s 3d in silver, 2 £ d in copper, and an American cent., piece. Witness asked the prisoner whether ho had boon working lately, and he said that from Easter, until he went to Colwyn Bay, he had been managing a barber's shop at Prestatyn. After that he was employed at, Mason's, Colwyn Bay, for a month. He had been at home about five weeks, and had no money. On the follow- ing morning witness charged t.he prisoner, and he said: "I forgot. about the knife last, night. I bought it last Wednesday from Charlie Jones, a prominent member of the Holyhead football team. He was hard up in the town here, and was shorb of a penny to pav for his lodgings. I ga.ve him a penny for the knife, and ho gave me the piece.of brooch, and a cigarette with it." Witness said he had made enquiries, and found there was no Charlie Jones belonging to tho Holyhead team. P.C. Holgate described how lie effected tho arrest of the prisoner in consequence of what. the witness Thomas said to him. Wlven they ar- rived at the police station prisoner asked what he was being locked up for. and witness told him for stealing the ring. Prisoner then said, "All right, you have made a. mistake this time." The witness then corroborated the evidence of the superintendent as to the searchfhg of the F prisoner. Mr Humphry's said tha! Avi, ¡1.A case, and he frKkad the magistrates to commit t.V prisoner for trial. Tho Bench retired, and after a short, delibera- tion. tie Chairman said they were unanimously of opinion that a prima facio case had been made out. The nrisoner was then chartred, and in reply "I am not guilty, and I reserve my de- fence." He was then committed to take his trial at tho next quarter sessions, to be held at Ruthin in January next. No application was male for bail, and the prisoner WIl removed in custody..

He had ben served with a pint of beer, Defendant said he had been working on the Sun- day- in question, and when returning from his work he feR- that he would like a gJasd of beer, although he knew he was doing wrong, He saw Iwo other men g"ing into ttH inn, So he followed them. The Chairman said that the defendant had pleaded guilty, and the Bench, luiving heard his excuse, thought, there was something in it, 8) they only fined him Is and costs. TRAVELLING WITHOUT A TICKET. David Jones, Glasfryn, Junction, WIU charged with travelling from Llandudno to Deganwy without a ticket. Mr A. Eddy (K us ton) prosecuted on behalf of the railway company, and Mr J. W. Hugill's, Conway, appeared for the defendant. Robert Edwards stattfJIlmaster at Deganwy, stated that. on September 21st he was on duty when the 10O p.m. train arrived from Llandudno. He saw th" defendant, who had alighted on the wrong side of the train, and there was an express due to pass through at the time. He (witness) asked defendant whM. he was doing on the line. to which he replied that he had nut oome by train. but was coming from the shore. He also declined to give his name and address. On the day following he met the defendant, wh,) said he had aeted very foolishly the previous mght, and asked him to accept the 2d fare, which Witil refused. Although defendant had been (Irink ing he WI1S (I nile capable of walking along the ph&tform. Mr J. W. Hughes, for the defence, contended that tile defendant, wus so drunk that he did nut know what he was doing. When the train arrived at Deganwy he evidently thought he was at the Junc- tion and that accounted for his getting onto of the train on lhe wrong side. He placed himself entirely in the hands of the Bench, and appealed for leniency. The Chairman said that drunkenness was no excuse in law. Defendant's conduct might have endangered lives, and therefore they could not look upon the case leniently. A fine ot 108 and costs was imposed. CONWAY MOTORIST AND HIS LICENSE. Felix Cyril Hartleyt The Morfa Conway, was sum- m'med fur keeping a motor-car without a license. Mr Francis D. Drak". Inland Hevenue Supervisor, prosecuted, and Mr James J.

Inland Revenue Officer, Llandudno, said that on May 22nd he saw defendant's ear, num- ber 1855, bring used ill 0 mway. He served notices on the defendant to take out a license on May 15th, May 30th, and September ;(0th. On June 4th he iu- formed tlie clefendallt that, he haù evidence (If his using the car, and he acknowledged liability, but did not take out a license until July oOth. In tfross-examination by Mr Marks, witness ad- mitted that, defendant had taken a two-guinea license for the car last- year, and this year he had a can- nrsatiun witl: him as tn the weight uf the ear, which wI)ltld affect the amount payahlp for the license. He, however, hact no recollection uf the defendant offer- ing pay according to the weight, given by the makers. Mr Marks submitted that in giving evidence of a conversation Ihere might be 8'lme little difference of opinion as to what actually occurred, but whatevpr occurred was not so material as the fact that Mr Hartley had paid the full and proper amount for the license in July. The difficulty had been as to the weight of the car and Mr Hadley put it off until he went II, London, where he had Ihe ear weighed, and paid JE4 4s for the license It was peculiar that after the full license duty of £4 4s had been paid, a summons was taken out. three months later. The present license would expire on December 31st, and they were that. rlay trying a case for non-payment of a lieense whidl had he en isned nearly three months ago", Haying regard 1,1) the circumstances, he sug- gested that if the Inland Revenue Officer was satis- fied the case might he met upon payment of costs only, or hy imposing a nominal penalty. The Chairman said the offence had been proved, hut the Bench, having given consideratiun to the facts as stated, imposed a fine of 2s 6d and costs.
PROPOSED IMPROVEMENT ASSOCIATION AT BETTWSY- COED. RATEPAYERS' MEETING. Tho adjourned general meeting of Bel-twsycoed rate[>ayers to consider the desirability of farming an improvement Associtioll for the village was held on Tuesday night last, Mr B. Pullan pro- siding. There was a fairly large attendance of ratepayers. The Chairman gave a detailed report of the work done by the committee, and again re- marked that there was a deficit of 14s. Mr Osborne Yale, J.P., thought the committee had done excellent work during the very short time they had devoted to it. He was quite willing to contribute a sovereign to clear otf the deficit (hear, hear). They in Bettws were only begin- ning to feel their way, and what they wanted was to cudgel their brains to see how they could de- velop that beautiful spot in the best way they could. He certainly felt that, such an Association should be formed. His suggestion to Bettwsy- coed people was to keep the chargcs as low as possible during the winter months. By keeping t.he charges low, it would encourage visitors to the village during the spring, autumn and winter. They had plenty of pcoplfe during summer, and what, thay really wanted was winter visitors. In conclusion, he stated that, if it was decided to form an association that, night he would be quite willing to contribute another 10s to the funds. Mrs McOulloch, of the Waterloo Hotel, did not feel that such an association would be of any good to the village, as long as tho water supply was in its present stage. If the visitors were treated all right they would surely come another tima. She did not consider that BettwsycoGd lodging-houses and hotels overcharged; in fact, she was sur? they did not. She had been inlleHwsycoed for a great many years, and she must say that she had been very tuccossful. She wat certain there were many people who did not ccme toBettwsycoed because of the water supply, and she could not say how long Bettwsyeoed was going to stand it. Mr Yale said the suggestion of Mrs McCulloch regarding t.he water supply was an excellent one for the association to take up. Mr Abel Davies also spoke with respect- to the water supply., and he proposed that an associa- tion be formed in order to hurry the Council up with a naw supply of pure water. Mr Henry Williams agreed witih the last speaker, and seconded his proposal. Mr Thomas Griffith felt that a committee such as the one proposed to be formed in order to pusfi the Council on with the question of the water supply was not needed at all. He could assure them that the Council had left no stone unturned to get the water supply they so badly wanted. They should trust the Council, who were the re- presentatives of the ratepayers. The negotia- tions which had-been going on during his ten years in the Council weret perhaps now coming to a head. The speaker went on to refer to t.no work done by the Council. He made the sug- gestion to the committee that, suitable enter- tainments should be held duriug the months of June. July and August., The resolution was then put to the meeting, when 14 voted for it and seven against. It was therefore carried. It was then decided to re-elect the old com- mittee with tho addition of the names of Messrs Abel Davios and Thomas Evans, Oakfield. A vote of thanks to the chairman concluded the proceedings.

When Rhe called that, morning he told her she had no business to be there, and he was angrv with lwr for coming. Hhe asked if he would supply her with some beer, and he replied, "Certainly nuL" She -said that she had not- slept at all thc night, before, and that her husband was ill. In a weak mument he gave her the beer, but did not accept payment He told her 1,<) go away, and never t" come there again. He had told the policeman that he was sorry, and that, if he had broken the law he had done it unintentionally. 1I-1I's Junes uid she had obtained the beer for a sick person. The Chairman said the Bench had deeded to fine eadl defendant 10s and 21s costs. 1111' Hopkins: But my house was not used for tile sale of beer. The Chairman: We understand the ('ir(,lImb1 'E' under whieh you supplied the liquor, but (i. it! a hreach of the law. and we are sure it will not happen again.

Mr Lloyd: It depends on who ia "the world" (La nghten, For the defence, Mr Poder submitted that, that wa the fiinlsiest case (wet. brought to court, and that it was AO highly tpchnical that the Bench would he justified in dismissing it. As a matter lif fact, 011 the very day that. William Edward Jones went on the land Mr Williams gave him permission and hi wife handed him the gun.

WATER RIGHTS IN RURAL DISTRICTS. INTERESTING DISCUSSION AT ST. ASA.PM. On Friday at a meeting of ihe St- Asaph (Flint¡ Rural District Council, an important question as to water rights wail raised.

DERBYSHIRE GRITSTONES. I J The sheep world is interested just now in the evolution of a new breed of sheep, or i rather we should say of the specialization of an old breed. For many generations there has been a native race of these animals in the Vale of Goyt and the district in Derby- shire, Cheshire and Staffordshire, of which The Peak is the centre, and the owners of this race have decided to select the best j animals as types to make a standard, and to start a flockbook of them. In that dis- trict there is a wide stretch of moorland ly- ing from 1,500 to 1,700 feet high, and ou this these sheep have lived for hundreds of years. Further the geological formation is largely Millstone Grit, and so the fanciers of the hew variety have wisely decided to call it the Gritstone breed. But there is more in this than meets the eye, for which we have to go back more than a hundred years. THE ORIGIN OF THE" GRITSTONE." The great breeder, Bakewell, said that the best wool was grown on the grit land, the s?cond best on clay, and the worst on lime- stone, and he instanced a case in this very district where the same wool was worth more on one farm than another adjoining by a halfpenny per pound, in his day-the superi- or wool being from the grit and the other from the limestone soil. The breed is des- cribed as being like the Kerryhill and Welsh varieties, with black speckled faces, and with an alert agile look. The present writer begs to suggest, however, that they have no affinity with Welsh sheep, and for geological and historical reasons. The range of moun- tains running from the Borders to Stafford- shire, and known as the Backbone of Eng- land," had a prehistoric breed of sheep which in recent centuries became split up into half-a-dozen modern breeds, of which the Blackfaces of Scotland is the principal one, but the Lonk, the Limestone, the Peni- gtone, etc., are other varieties, and the pre- ient writer humbly suggests that the Grit- stone is yet another one from the same source. Anyway a breed which can live and thrive on a barren moor, lying higher than some of our hilltops is one worthy of note. PREMATURE THRASHING. The unusually high price of corn has tempted many farmers to thrash out as much of their stuff as possible, and convert the proceeds into cash, but the man who wants to have really good sound grain in his granary will wait awhile. The crop is not ripe and ready when it is just put into the stack, but takes a certain amount of time to develop and mellow before it is even good for seed, as well as for food purposes. There is this year the additional point that much of the grain has been stacked in an in- ferior condition on account of the adverse weather that has been common over most of the country, and while of course the stuff would not be wet or even appreciably damp when stacked, vet it was at least" raw" and in an unsatisfactory state. A prolonged stay in the stack will alter all this—provid- ed of course there is no heating—and if thrashed out after a few months the grain will come out in a mightily improved condi- tion. REASONS FOR EARLY THRASHING. This is a state of matters we often meet j with in the case of wheat at harvest it may be stacked sometimes in an actually damp state-a shower of rain does not stop the carting in the wheat-growing districts of the south—and if left for several months, especially if allowed to stand till the dry- ing winds of spring come, the grain comes out in beautiful hard dry condition. Many influences are at work, of course, to render it imperative to thrash early. Farmers live in a chronic state of want of cash—at least the writer finds it so—a stack may be heat- tag, and must be thrashed out (as the writer has had to dot, or fodder and litter may be wanted early. For these and other reasons, thrashing has to be carried out from harvest to spring, but it is certain that if the work can be deferred the grain will b? all the bet- ter for it. This year there are special in- ducements to do so because of the price, for whereas in former years the value always de- clined after harvest, on this occasion it has gone up and is likely to remain so. FARM PUPILS. The natural farm pupil is a farmer's son who is working at home with his father, and learning his business while taking the place of a workman, or at least half a workman. There are many cases, however, where lads, whose fathers are not farmers, determine to follow a farmer's life, and it is these young men who form the great army of "pupi IS in the ordinary sense of the term. The fathers of such no doubt think it is rather hard lines to have to pay anywhere from X50 to X150 per annum, and that even then their sons have to work like farm labourers—or at least, ought to work like farm labourers. On the farmer's side of the question, however, the present writer can testify that the fee is hardly earned. SMALL FAT. The mere expense of boarding will eat up a large proportion of it, while the fact that the pupil is taken into the family ought to count for a great deal. In the writer's own case it counts for so much that he has re- fused pupils at any price: it is enough trou- ble to raise one's own family without help- ing with other people's. Many, however, take pupils and get on well at the job: some young men have sense enough to put off their coats and learn to work and make themselves respected and approved, but on the other hand some do not. Some excep- tional young men have been taken on by far- mers for their work alone, but few are worth this. There will probably be pupils forthcoming for all time, for a country life has attractions for many, but it is certain that a fair premium will'continue to be paid for them. LITTER. The bedding of our domestic animals in the house is work that entails a considerable amount of trouble and expense. If anv far- mer will just think it over he will be sur- prised to find how much labour and how much straw the littering up of the stock re- quires in a twelvemonth, and how much money might be saved if it could be done without. The kind of litter used depends very much on the kind of farming in any given district. In a corn-growing neighbour- hood wheat straw is plentiful and forms one of the best kinds of stuff, while on an upland hillside farm bracken is often used. People have generally to put up with what they can get. but bracken and other kinds of rub- bish neither .make so good a bed for the stock nor good manure afterwards. DOING WITHOUT LITTER. It is doubtful if it would pay a farmer to buy straw far litter if he does not grow it, and it is remarkable how little litter is re- quired if it is carefully used. In a cow- shed, for instance, we often see a lot of bed- ding needed, yet where there are properly arranged stalls, with a deep and wide gutter behind, it is not only possible to do with- out litter altogether, but many dairy far- meril follow this plan. Where there is no market for straw or it must all be consumed » at home there is no object in saving litter, but where one can get .£12 or X15 for a stack of straw it seems a waste of money to simply trample it into muck.

LATE DUKE OF WESTMINSTER. FLINTSHIRE MEMORIAL. The Bishop of Kt Asaph on Friday formally dedi- cated at st Paul's Church, Ul.osesem >r, near Flint a font which has been erected to the memory of the late Duke of Westminster. The memorial hu been subcribed for by the inhabitants of the parish in grateful recognition of the many acts of kindness and the unflagging interest his Grace took in their welfare. The late Duke was lord of the manor and assisted handsomely in the erection of the church, which was built in 1876, the vicarage, etc A sum of XIWJ was obtained, and the memorial takes the form of a beautiful marble font a bronze medallion of the Duke, and an inscribed tablet. Kathenne Duchess of Westminster had inten.ied being present, hilt the vicar (the Rev W. Aerar Duviea) received a letter from her grace, addrewvd from Park LIiH" London staling that she wai extremely disapp >inte i at being unable to be pie sent, bui- she was raiol up with a dtiil. and Ktl\,ld not be able to UlOV out, though she had ii'ide all arrangements for going t Rhosesmor. After the dedication, tlh Bishop delivered it ger. mon, in which he paid a high tribute to the charac- ter of the late .Duke. He aid the Duke's generosity was a proverb,^ but it was not that lndise.riminiting generosity which does (food by chance. Every (laini lie received was ttiid few knew how great the labour was—examined and considered, and, if real and just, itio claim was abundantly answered. The deceased's was a noble generosity. There was influence of a 8I:mn 11-11<1 beautiful character. Hu confidence once given was rarely withdrawn, and. at with strong and real natures, that confidence ..ret lost WM not easily regained. He was as fearless as he was g-yitle. and his name stood for all that was honourable and pure.
