LETTERS TO THE EDITOR, 1 SUFFRAGETTE MEETING AT LEDBURT. j To the Editor. Sir,-WHI you kindly adtww me to call the attention of your readers to the meeting on behalf of the Extension of the Parliamentary Franehise to Women, to be held at Ledbury oa Friday evening, chiefly for the purpose of emphasizing the fact that it is distinctly a meeting of those who are not merely non- militant but who strongly object to all such lawless, wicked, foolish action, and would attain their ends by strictly constitutional means. We trust that tkia fact and the moderation of the speakers will eeable their Ledbury audience to give them a patient and courteous bearing. Would it not be a good tlaing if the word Suffragist' or Suffragette were, as much as possible, dropped for a time by all moderate and constitutional supporters of this movement, and such an expression as I have written in this letter lie used instead ? At present the unpopular word (or words) is a sort, of red rag to our greatly irritated John Bull. Yours faithfuvy, Codd;IJgt08 Roctor H J BULKBLEY. 1 Ledbury. Y. Cf?ddm?toa Rectory,

ELECTING LICIT FOR LUBIR. I CHURCH. j At a public meeting held in the Church Room, Ledbury, on Monday evening last with reference to the lighting of the Ledbury Church a resolution was passed by 44 votes to 7 for the installation of electric light. The Reeter (Rev F W Carnegy) presided over an average attendance, and was sapported by Mr C S Bastow (senior church- warden). Also present were: Rev 0 F R Strickland (Curate), Masers S H Bickham, W H Harton, S Clarke. H Garrood, a s a. Bickham, J Bache, E Juckes, J W Teague, J J Tilley, Dr Wood, and many others. The Reetor, in opening the proceedings, said the matter of the lighting of the Church bad been discussed by the offieials of the Church and they had come to the concl usion that it was not as good as it could ise. They had discussed it fully and decided that they should bring it before the publie. Mr Bastow read letters and tenders from %the Ledbury Gas Co. and from the Electric Light Co. There were three prices from the Gas Company. These were (1) for the con- version of the present fittings, six lighting polD ti, as they are at the present time td? cluatfra of three inverted incandescent burners, fitted with pneumatic switch for I £56; (2) as the first tender vwthout the pneumatic switch, but with by-pass com- plete, cSSI; and (3) the same scheme as No. 2 but without by-passes, £ 25 The Electric Light Company's tender was for J6129 10s. Letters were also read from various other churches concerning gas and electric light, and each stated that electric light was more advantageous than gas. Electric light was more clean and did not pollute the atmosphere as gas did, also it was more economical. Mr Bastow also said,, that they wanted complete contra l of the lighting in the various parts of the Church, which tbay had not got now. Mr Bickham asked if there was any promise of support towards the lighting of the Church. The Rector said that he had in hand £ 35, which had been subscribed. They had also in addition to that the following subscriptions which had been promised provided the Church was lighted by electricityLord Biddulph .£5, Mr Spencer H Bickh:ua £5, Rev H Mallinson £ 5, Mrs Maddison Green Y,5, per the Rector X,5, Mrs Spencer H Bick- ham £ 2 2s, Mr H Veinon Smith £2 2. Mr H S H Bickbam X2 2s, C. H. B. £ 2, makisg a total of £73 Gs. £ 10 of the £ 35 had been given by the late Mr Thoa Vaughaa for the improved lihting of the Church and £25 being part proceeds of the recent Pied Piper performances, which bad been ear-marked to the electric lighting of the Church. Mr Bickham said with that promise there could be no shadow of doubt that the money could be found to carry out the electric lighting of the Church. He would like to propose that the Churchwardens subject to the subscriptions promised being recei ved, which would bring the total amount in hand to Z70, should be instructed to proceed witb the electric lighting of the Church. He had not the slightest hesitation in saying that the extra money could be found. (Applause.) Mr H Vernon Smith said be had great pleasure in seconding the proposition, and they could add his name to the subscription list for the sum of two guineas. (Applause). Mr Bastow again read several letters, which stated that the electric lighting scheme was as good as it could be; the charges were moderate and the firm was excellent. The cost of expenditure on lighting would be 50 per cent. less. Mrs. Bickham had also written saying that she was unable to attend, and if the decision was for electric light she would contribute Y,2, and if gas she would not contribute. (Laughter). Mr Bastow was asked about the expend i- ture when they had incandescent light in the church. He replied that he was sorry to say that the cost was more than it ever was. That was five years ago. Dr Wood asked if they proposed to do away with the gas entirely. The Rector said he presumed the gas fittings would be turned into electric light fittings. Mr Clarke: Will the light ba any better than that we are having now ? (Laugh;er). Mr Bastow: I am writing by this light —(electric light)—now. The Rector said he did not look II pan the scheme for saving expenses, but the benefit to be derived from it. It was more c lean, and gas caused stuffiness in the atmosphere and an unwholesome warmth which it generated. He would rather the congrega- tion discussed the question. Dr Wood said he could not help thinking it was a serious experiment. One of the most important things was they did not know how long the electric light was going to last. If thecompany closed up they would have to have a re-installation of gas again. It was a point which they must take into considera- tion. He thought they were embarking upon a risky experiment, and if only they would give it careful thought they would go back to the gas. He had no axe to grind, but he wanted them to consider this matter seriously, so that they should not be dis- appointed in the end. Mr Juckes went into the question in favour of the Gas Co., and said that whereas the gas mantle only cost 4!ri an electric metallic lamp cost upwards of 2s 6d. And if the lamp got burnt it used a considerable quantity of current. Of course they could not compare the old flat burners with the electric light, but the present incandescent lamp was every bit as good as electric light. All the railway companies used gas. One company he mentioned had installed electric light but they had soon got rid of it Mr J Tilley stated that during a winter quarter he bad kept careful account of the expenditure on light. Gas cost him £9 190} 3d one quarter and electric li-bt Y,9 14s 2d. He bad had the electric light on during Christmas and had used it excessively and he had also bad the light on two days before and five days after Christmas added to the quarter. The resolution of Mr S H Bickham was put to the meeting and 44 voted for it and seven against. The meeting concluded with a vote of thanks to the Rector for presiding, proposed by Mr Bickham and seconded by Dr. Wood.

I Yesterday (Thursday) afternoon and even- ing the annual sale of work on behalf of Chareh Boma aad Foreign Missions was held m the grounds of Ledbury Park (by kind permission of Lord Biddftlph). This effort- is prepared for thronghout the autumn and winter months by the ladies working party, which meets once a fortnight at various houses in the town. The various stalls were grouped on the lawn near the Swiss Cottage, and the scene presented was a very animated one during 'the afternoon. Unfortunately rain threatened for sooae time after the opening of the sate, which may have affected the attendance. At I o'clock the Rector (the Rev F W Carnegy) announced that there would be no fernal opening of the sale of work, but he felt he would not be doing bia duty4ouleas he said a word of thanks to Lord and Lady Biddulph ior kindly allowing them to make uae of the beautiful gvoonds for the occasion of the sale. The fact of the sale being held in the grounds would ensure its atiocen. Me also expressed their thanks to Mr Cotton, who had made everything very easy by the help he had given them. The Rector mentioned that there was a protit of £ 30 last year en the sale, and he hoped the result would be as good this year. He drew attention to the bran tab pmrasidecl.Q.Yer by the Masters Taylor, and the Children's Pageant, which had been prepared ander the care of Miss Masefield. He hoped both would be patrenised well.

I THE COST OF SWINE FEVER. 232,000 in Compensation Last Yaar. i Mr Runciman, President of the Board of Agriculture, defended his department in the House of Commons, on Tuesday, against the complaints that the Board had dealt too dras- tically with the Irish cattle trade in the matter of the foot-and-mouth disease restrictions. Speaking on the Board of Agriculture vote, he said the Board had not been so strict as many of the English Couuty Councils, and he thought these Councils would now do well to take the advice of the Board and remove the prohibitions on Irish cattle. If it was thought well to have a Committee of stockowners and others interested to advise the Board on the subject ho would welcome such advice, but the ultimate decision must rest with the Department. The latest news from Ireland was reassuring, and they were only awaiting a final message from the Irish Department's chief veterinary officer before allowing the cattle traffic to be resumed. The recent outbreak of this disease had upset the export trade of Ifcgland for five or six months. Scotland had secured immunity from this disability, and Scotch animals had been going out without interruption. Negotiations were proceeding with the Argentine Government with the object of securing a reduction of the period of six months now insisted upon before animals were admitted after the Department of Agriculture had been able to declare the country free from disease. Foot-and-mouth disease bads nob, however, involved the country in losses anything like as large as those which had come from swine fever, which during the last generation had been the most persistent of all animil diseases. I la the last fire months the number of outbmka had graufcer than last year, and the had paid £82000 in compensation in 1913-14. while in the same period the administration of the Department in connection with swine fever had cost 965,000 over about 2,900 cases of the disease. Our method of dealing with the disease was at least as satisfactory as those in America and other countries. On the question of small holdings, Mr Runciman said the movement had shown no signs of breaking down. There were in the country 11,000 small holders, in addition to 1.400 holders under associations, and over 196,000 acres of land had been secured or were being negotiated for. Over 24,000,000 had been invested in these small holdings, and £ 60,000 a year was paid in rent. There were still over 6.000 approved applicants unsatisfied. Mr C Bathurst said the policy of whole- sale slaughter amounted to a confession of departmental ignorance and failure. It was lamentable to find the serious lack of co- operation between the Board of Agriculture in England and the department of Agriculture in Ireland, and he asserted that this led to a complete want in confidence in both departments by British farmers. Cattle diseases should be dealt with by a single body acting over the whole country. In his opinion the existing swine fever order was a failure. Mr T W Russell, of the Irish Department of Agriculture, said their inspectors had definitely declared that the animals suspected at Belfast were not suffering from foot-and-mouth disease. Mr Hicks Beach and Mr Orumley advocated a reduction of the restrictions preventing the movement of cattle from Ireland. Captain Pretyman complained of recent financial legislation, and urged the need of security for capital invested in agriculture. The debate was interrupted by the motion for adjournment. -———— —————

While the Bank Holiday erowia were surging past the new bear enclosures in the Zoological Gardens, says a Daily Mlrror writer, I overheard a remarkable dialogue between a father and sen. Said tie son, iliat 'r. & big bear, fatker. What is its name? f "I can't say, my boy," f1;her an- swered, Is it a grizziyT" the boy asked. Father leokod doubifiul.

He oerffided to somebody who was coikgratu, la-tins him on his elevation to tha purple that-to fe4t a paiag of regret when he realised that henceforth he was debarred from indulg- ing in his favourite amusement of riding in trams.. Most people believe that all Car- dinals are dressed in soarlet. This is. a mis- take. Cardinals belonging to religious orders wear robes of the same eeleur as their monkish habits. A J" ft Cardinal, for instaneer wears a oappa gn that magnificent robe witfc an crrmae ipeand prodigious train, made of bLaok silk, and looks positively a secular colleague in flaming soeriet.

The new flay was in rehearsal, and a dele- gation of aators approache-d the managers GR being received the spokesman said Sir, we have come to RiEk that a portion of Mr. trov?ik's part be cut ?What?t all this Brawn's part cut wat. about? What?part do you want cut out?" asked the manager. "The'part where he, as tbe < disguised count, borrows five shilliks. Every time he thinks any of as has any money he ••alls a rehearsal." A minister was once preachisg at a little chapel on the subjeet of Giving." During the sermon his heart was rejmoed by the fact that & member of the congregation went to the side of the ehapei and placed a coin in a. box, aRt a little later another did the same. Surely., ("'the minister thought, hisALsermons had never met with so practical a response before. On leaving, he was accosted by one of the brethren, who said: "I hepe we didn't disturb you, sir; but omrs is a peany-in-the- slot meter, and we should have been in dark- ness if we hadn't attended to it." The lady in the excursion train remarked, Now, my sister's got what you might call a shallow complexion." The male listeneR instantlv speculated that the shallow com- plexion was one of those which are- applied at the dressing-table. But," continued the speaker, "she went to Blackpool at Easter, and when she oome back the shallowness had all gone, and sh-a was as red as 'ere amd there one." Then only was it understood that "shallow" and "sallow" were synonymous. Bfcpglars vis-ited the residence of a friend 01 mine lately, writes E. and, as he says, "(lid -.Iliemselve,s well." They took as much of his silver a-s they could carry, tossed the contents of drawers on to the lfoor, more or less emptied the larder and a decanter, and to add injury to insult," he concluded, "they stole my burglary policy." It is now the smart thing, we a.-e informed, to pose as an expert tea-taster. A certain fashionable woman has won social fame by producing a tiny silver tea caddy in restaurants and hotels where she is invited to tea. My dear," she was heard to remark to a bewildered hostess the other day, since all the hotels seem to get their tea horn the same detestable firm I have been obliged' to bring my own brand with me," and she handed her caddy to a waiter and whispered a few direc- tions as to the decoction of it. Here is a new complication of modern life. The Book Monthly has the following ftorv: "I want advising." a seedy voutb said to a librarian, "as to a course of reading that will be of ultimate benefit to me." The librarian ask-ed if lie had a preference for any particular subject, and got the answer, I like to read the lives of eminent people." So the inquirer was eondncted to the biegraphies, and made welcome to them. He was r-hown cne after another, and then he said, "Have you a g-ood life of -1 nek the Ripper?" The principal character in the following dialotrue, according to "The Books of To-day and To-morrow." was not- enaacd in flirta- tion. but merely requisitioning a few novels: Young Larlv f reading from list): Rtisaged to be .NTirriqf7 "-Libr,,tri.Aii (referring to shelf): No, mviam." Lady: "'Thou are the Librarian Ye«. madam." Ladv: "ThflT'k you. 'Two Kisses'?"— Librarian: "Out, madam." Lady After Dark '? Librarian madam." TA": "Thanks. 'Love Me fn" Ever'?" —T>!h"arinri "No. 'Wooed and Marred'?" Ladv: "No, thank you. 'Under Love's Rule'?"—Librarian: No, madam." Lady: "'Good-bye, Sweetheart'? Thank you very much." I I suppose the Bank of England must always gain, the Caroenter in the Daily flxprc.is says, considerably by the paper money that is lost in such disasters as the wrecks of the Titanic and the Empress of Ireland. Million- aire? in the Titanic must between them have had many huwd-reds of pounds in notes, and, as these were not recovered, the Bank must be the gainer. It would. as a matter of fact, be interesting to know how much a year the Bank profits by the loss and destruction of its notes. It is rather difficult," remarked manager of one of the largest steamship lines, "to say what instruction could possibly be drawn up to provide for every emergency. Frankly, I do not see how we could educate the passenger. A big liner is very compli- cated, hut when booking his passage he sees a plan of the ship which shows him where the gangways are, and so forth. In the Emnress of Ireland disaster the passengers harl only been a few Itours ir the vessel, and could "ot know their way alvrnt perfectly. It is im- possible to generalise on this subieet. A mg- j gestion was made a vear or two a<?o that, pas- sengprs should all be told beforehand what boats they should go to in the event of dis- aster. Such a plan would be extremely diffi- cult to observe on one of those binr ships with thousands of people on board.' Besides, the boats on one side might be rendered useless by the collision, and the instructions would be vain, for passengers who had been told off to certain boats would find these cou-ld not be used. There can only be," he continued, "elementary rules for the passenger to bear in mind." And he proceeded to give them: Put on year life-jacket. Assist your relntives. Make for the deck, as high as you can get. Hold yourself in readiness to take in- instructions from the officers. No steamship company wants to fill the pas- senger's mind with apprehensions of disaster. No passenger wants to have his mind so filled. The big momentous critical occasions are tJappily rare. Against the small chance of their occurrence one governing rule of con- duit should be in the' back of every ocean traveller's mind. First and last-keep your head."

GUARDIANS ELECTION AT COLWALL. j Miss Lake Defeats Mr J R Roberts. On Monday last the election took place at Colwall for a Guardian and Rural Councillor for the parish of Colwall, consequent on the resignation of Mr M J Powell. There were two candidates, Miss Bessie Lake, of Brook House, Colwall, a lady well known in the village, and Mr John Roberts Roberta, of Quarryberg, Upper Colwall. Mr Roberts was for some years a member of the Parish Council, and is at the present time a member of the Parochial Committee. Both candidates issued addresses, and a good deal of work was put in by the respective supporters. Polling took place at the Temperance Hall from 12 ,)On to 8 p.m., Mr Richard Homes (returnin officer) acting as presiding officer, end Mr U W Thomas as poll clerk. Polling was very black in the afternoon; and it was not until after six o'clock that it became at all brisk, and between 7 and 8 p.m. polling was fairly heavy. Miss Lake and Miss Holland fetched voters up in motor car, but Mr Roberts had no vehicles at work for him, and he was undoubtedly at a disadvantage by the fact that although well known in the Hill district he was not known so well in the village, especially the lower part, as Miss Lakq, who is interested in a good many organisations. After the close of the poll at 8 p.jn. the votes were quickly counted, and Mr Homes announced the result to the waiting crowd of people outside the main entrance of the Hall, as follows Lake, Bessie 141 Roberts, John Roberts 99 Majority 42 In all 243 voted, about half the electorate. There were three spoilt papers. The success of Miss Lake was received with a cheer by her supporters, and she was warmly congratulated. The newly-elected Guardian and Rural District Councillor briefly returned thanks for her election. Printed and Published for and on behalf of the EXECUTRIX of the late THOMAS VAUGHAN, by WILLIAM S.

PENDOCK. I ARSON CHARGE AT THØ Assizm.-At Worces- tershire Assizes on Wednesday, before the Lord Chief Justice, Allen Herbert Roberts (22), labourer, and John James (23), labourer, were charged with setting fire to two ricks, belonging to Thomas Jeffes, at Pendock. Mr. H. G. Farrant prosecuted, and Mr Coventry defended James. Evidence was given showing that when arrested Roberts made a statement to the effect that they set fire to the ricks. He was led away by James, who had been discharged by Mr. Jeffes and had a grudge against him. Mr. Coventry said that James was not quite sharp (some witnesses agreed), and he took no part in the firiag, but stood by and watched. Roberta, in a written statement, said that he fired one rick and James set fire to the other. James, in the box, denied this, and said that Roberts set fire to both ricks. The Jury found both prisoners guilty, and expressed the view that James was the craftier of the two. Dr Watson, the Prison Surgeon, said James was of feeble intellect. The Lord Chief Justice said he could make no dist rnction between the two. He took into account that they had been in prison for three months, and sentenced them to a further three months' hard labour.

The announcement ot, the resignation of the Right. Rev. G. P. Blyth, Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem, will revive memories of New- man and the Tractarian movement; for it was the creation of this bishopric which was ,one of the causes of Newman's secession to Rome. The see wac founded in 1840, and was to be subject to the Archbishop of Canter- bury, and although the bishop was to be con- secrated according to the Anglican rite the appointment was to be made alternately by the English Church and the Lutherans. This extraordinary arrangement lasted until 1851. A good story is told of the Queen's recent visit to the quarters of the Prince of Wales at Magdalen, Oxford. With characteristic thoroughness her Majesty inquired into every detail and was shown the housekeeping book kept by the valet. Among the shillings and sixpences for little extras was a daily column of pennies. Whatever does my boy get for a penny?" asked the Queen. "That is for an apple before breakfast, your Majesty," was the ready reply of the valet-accountant. A correspondent calls attention to the fact that the Boy Scout uniform is being exploited by the charity-mongering fraternity, who trade on the assumption by the public that a Scout cannot be connected with anything shady. This is an enviable distinction, but it must be remembered that the uniform does not make the Scout, and that the real Boy Scout does not beg.
