DYMOCK. I 10s. REWARD.—The above amount will be paid to any person proving relationship between the family of Samuel Jones, for three generations butchers at Dymock, and the family of Thomas Cox Dawe, late of Miteheldean. It is thought that some 100 to 120 years ago Thomas Cox Dawe's Grandfather married a daughter of Samuel Jones, butcher, of Dymock, who died about 1820.—Any person able to give any reliable information on the subject are requested to communicate with R & C B Masefield, Solicitors, Ledbury. HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY. A Committee meeting was held on Saturday, at the Beauchamp Arms, Dymock, Mr Chew presiding. The Secretary, in his report, stated that though the last show was a record respecting the gate and exhibits, yet the balance-sheet showed a small deficit, this being due to the increased ex- penditure, which was jB20 in excess of that of the previous show held in 1911. Mention was also made of the excellence of the table decora- tions in the new class for schoolgirls, and of the improved accommodation for sports, etc., through the kindness of Mr T E Jones in lending his large field. A hearty vote of thanks to the Secretary (Mr Griffiths) for his report, and for his services to the show generally was passed, and he was unanimously re-elected. Mr Guy Smith was re-elected as secretary of sports, as also was the General Committee. It was decided to hold the show on August 27 this year, Mr Joues again kindly placing his field at the disposal of the Committee. AGRICULTURAL CO-OPERATIVE SOCIETY.—The amnual general meeting of the Agricultural Co- operative Society was held at the Beauchamp Arms on Saturday. Mr J H Walker presided, and the Secretary, Mr T J Poiner, in his report, stated that the Society was still progressing quietly, the annual turnover now being £1,006, an increase of three pounds on the previous year. He regretted, however, that the work had become more than he could deal with, and asked to be allowed to resign. This announce- ment was received with expressions of great regret, Messrs Chew and Stelfox speaking in the highest terms of Mr Poiner's work, and asking him to continue as secretary. Mr Poiner definitely declined, and Mr J H Cowles was elected in his stead, Mr Poiner consenting to be president of the Society. The old Committee was re-elected en bloc, with the addition of Mr Cowie. On the motion of Mr Stelfox, a move- ment was set on foot with the object of pro- viding a suitable recognition of the services of Mr Poiner to the Society during his three years of office.
