A LITTLE CHILD'S FUNERAL.-One unfor- bunate result of the recent outbreak of measles is the death of Violet Gurney, aged 14 months, who, after a short illness of nine days, died on Wednesday in last week, from measles and congestion of the lungs. She was the youngest daughter of Mr and Mrs Edward Gurney, of Church-street, Ledbury, and the interment took place on Monday at Ledbury Cemetery. The Curate (Rev 0 F R Strickland) conducted the service. The following is a list of the wreaths sent by relatives and friends:—In loving memory of our darling Violet, from Dad and Mam from Granny, to dear little Violet; in loving memory, from Aunt Harrie and Cousin Edie with deep sympathy, from Mr and Mrs Gibbons in remembrance of dear Violet, from Corona, who loved her in loving remembrance of dear Vi, from Mrs Evans and Polly Hanson in loving memory of dear little Violet, from Kathleen Reeves; dear little Violet, from Marie J essett; in affectionate remembrance of a sweet little girl, from Katie and Lizzie Underwood a token of respect and sympathy, from Mrs Barnham a token of deep sympathy, from Uncle Jack and Aunt Ellen (Milberton, Cavendish-road, Balham). Mr and Mrs Gurney wish to thank all kind friends for the wreaths, also for their kindness during their bereavement. John Haines and Sons, Practical Chimney Sweeps, Homead Street, Ledbury. All Orders Promptly attended to. Distance no object. Established 1830. EXTINGUISHING DEMONSTRATION.—A success- ful demonstration of fire extinguishing was given at the Cattle Market, Ledbury. on Tuesday afternoon, before a very large and representative audience of gentlemen in the town and district, quite 200 people being assembled. The first fire, consisted of a large shed tarred and filled with timber, and wood-wool, a quantity of petrol and paraffin being thrown on. On being fired and fully caught hold the flames reached some thirty feet high. At a given signal by the audience, Mr Goodyear, representing Minimax Ltd, put this fire out in 3 minutes. Mr E Pritchett, of Munsley Castle, here made an interruption, claiming that the timber was specially treated to resist fire. This caused a commotion. Mr Goodyear challenged Mr Pritchett to remake a fire to his own instruc- tions, and a large quantity of faggots and timber were purchased from Miss R E Daw, wheel- wright, and placed inside the shed, together with timber previously used. Paraffin and petrol were again thrown on, so that a huge fire with intense heat was generated. When the flames burst through the roof of the shed, at the order of Mr Pritchett, Mr Goodyear proceeded to put out this fire, which he was successful in doing in the same time as the first fire. Mr Pritchett not only withdrew his criticism but gave an order for an installation of the Minimax appliances at his farm. When Mr Goodyear succeeded in defeating the second fire there was loud and vigorous applause. Mr Goodyear, who is with Messrs Swift and Co. for the next fortnight, would be glad to arrange for private demonstrations or give his expert opinion for installing this most convenient and success- ful convenience for "first aid." Some of the customers in the district who have "Minimax" installed are Eastnor Castle, Ledbury Kennels, Colonel Henry, Mr P Taylor, Birchend, etc.
