I.O.G.T.—The usual meeting of the Ledbury Freedom Lodge was held on Tuesday. The chief business was the installation of officers for the new quarter. Bro. H T Warren presented his report as representative to the East, Mid, and North Gloucester District Lodge May meeting at Dursley. A special feature of that meeting had been the welcome and congratula- tions accorded to Bro. J W Hopkins, of Gloucester, on his appointment as Grand Chief Templar of England in succession to Bro. Joseph Malins, who first introduced the Order to England. Brief speeches of congratulation were made by representatives from each Lodge in the District. In his reply the Grand Chief Templar appealed for fidelity to the principles of the Order, loyalty to its constitution and methods, and enthusiasm in the work. With that the grace of God was all they needed more. The remainder of the meeting was of a social character, the ladies entertaining the gentle- men.

THE BICYCLE IN AMBRICA.-The older cyclist will remember the invasion from the United States in the early days of the "safety." Al- though the American machine was good enough in its way it attained merely a temporary popu- larity, and that only because of the high price of the British cycle. Now the latter has secured a footing in the United States by virtue of its own excellence and despite hostile tariffs. The following extract from a letter to the Raleigh Co, of Nottingham, speaks for itself:—"The Modele Superb which I got from you last Sep- tember has given me every satisfaction on all kinds of roads, and I may add that it has been well tested, for this has been one of the most severe winters for years. I have ridden over a big stretch of Long Island, Staten Island, and other parts of New York State, also parte of New Jersey, and it has attracted notice and admiration everywhere I have been. It is ad- mitted by all cyclists they have never seen any- thing like ib." The Long Island correspondent is only expressing what everyone in the British cycle trade knows; our machines are of the highest possible standard, and were it not for the high tariff they would be even more popular is the United StaHa.
