Mr W D Blandfortl's Lazybones," ridden lay Mr Golf, won the United Farmers' and Tradesmen's Steeplechase by 30 lengths at the Y.W.H. Hunt Steeplechases at Oaksey Park, Cirencester, on Saturday. Sir George Bullough's 44 Wavylace" was second in the V. W.H. Steeplechase. A S-IXJCESSFUL S,%rA FJ Of.DEIL-About Christ- mas time I stood in a country fat stock market Add saw two beautiful young steers about three years old puss though the sale ring. When the owner of the cattle returned home he had a cheque for E70 in his pocket, and the butcher who got the beasts was well satisfied. The man, by the way, was a labourer a few years ago now he is a smallholder with a little place and twenty or thirty acres of land. How was it he managed it ? By his own industry and labour. I shall be suprised if he is not a farmer some day. In fact it is this type of man that is wanted to crown the small holdings movement with success.

Personally, I must confess, I dearly love a dark red, and among the many beautiful crimsons I know of none to equal the new hybrid tea so worthily named George Dickson. The growth is excellent, and the deep velvety crimson colour, with the reverse petals heavily veined, is most fascinating. I saw this Rose growing in Ireland in the summer of 1912 and, judging from the num ber of medals it has since obtained, including the gold medal of the National Rose Society, I was fortunate to thus early secure it, and as I have since largely budded it, I am looking forward to a glorious display of it in my garden this season. Every lover of the Rose must have it.—"Agricultural Economist and Horticultural Review." George Lloyd (late James Lloyd), Chimney Sweep, Church Lane, Ledbury., Distance no object.

"THE GLAD EYE."—Lovers of comedy, and who does not love a real, good comedy, have a treat in store for them next week, when on Monday and Tuesday, at the Royal Hall, Led- bury, Mr Louis Meyer presents his own company in the fceatest farcical success of recent years, "The Glad Eye," a farcical comedy in three acts. For fifteen months this play was the rage of London, and proved as big a success in the provinces. Having h&d the good fortune to witness a performance of the play by the same company which will appear at Ledbury, the writer can heartily recommend it. If you have a fit of the blues," or are down in the U dumps," despondent and at war with all the world, g. to "The Glad Eye," and you will leave the hall thinking after all what a glorious worLd we live in and if you are in the best of health and spirits go, and come away feeling even more so. It is screamingly funny, and is undoubtedly the greatest attraction in the comedy line that has ever visited our town. Plan and tickets at Tilley's Library. J. W.

HEREFORD SPRING FLOWER SHow. -The exhi- bition in the Shire Hall, Hereford, on Wednes- day, under the auspices of the Herefordshire Spring Flower Society beat all records in regard to the number of entries and point of excellence. The daffodils were superb, keen competition being the rule, while the nurserymen's exhibits surpassed those at any of the four previous shows. The alpine and rock plants showed a great advance, and the exhibition of primulas, auriculas, primroses, and anemones was remark- ably good. There was a falling off in the flowering shrub department, but Mr W H Banks (Kington) again had a good stand and won the cup given by Sir James Rankin out- right. He also secured the cup given by Sir John Cotterell for the third year in succession for his display of daffodils. Mrs J S Arkwright, wife of the former M.P. for Hereford, secured Mrs Mount's cup for the second collection of daffodils. Mr Lower, Presteign, won Messrs. Barr and Sons's cup for another collection of daffodils. John Haines and ISens, Practical Chimney Sweeps, Homend Street, Ledbury. All Orders Promptly attended to. Distance no object.
