SATURDAY, JUNE 27. 1914. Topical Tattle. Although the late Mr Jesse Garrood had resided away from Ledbury for some years, yet I lie, town has cause to be thankful to him for his services rendered to it. As the first clerk of the Ledhury Urban District Council he was largely responsible for the rules and standing orders and bye-laws of the Council, was one of the promoters and for many years secretary of the Ledbury Markets and Fairs Co., Ltd., and was one of the original —I believe the senior-trustees of the Russell Endowed School at Ledbury, a work in which he took a particularly keen interest, and even tkough of late years his health failed, he still maintained that close per- sonal touch which for years bad characterised his connection with the school. It was undoubtedly largely due to Mr Garrood's influence that the high standard was set and has been maintained from the foundation of the Russell Endowed School. All his work, whether in a professional or honorary character, was stamped with thor- oughness and attention to detail, and no- where were these qualities more strongly evinced than in his trusteeship of Ledbury's secondaiy school. Although he had for some years before his death resided at Bournemouth, yet he always made a point of being present at the annual speech day of the School, and for some years past had been in the habit of revisiting the town where he spent so many years of bit life, for the purpose of taking the chair at this the most important gathering in the school year. ♦ One of the most important subjects the Ledbury Guardians have discussed for some years was that which occupied their attention for a considerable time on Tuesday last, when the report of the Boarding-Out Com- mittee on the steps to be taken to remove the children in the Workhouse from that institu- tion, in pursuance of the Local Government Board Order on the matter, was discussed. Briefly the recommendations of the Committee are that children which cannot be boarded out shall be placed in a cottage home, which they recommend should be established, and that such a cottage home should not be situate in Ledbury, but in one or other of the rural parishes, providing a house can be obtained there. This is the proceed ure that is being adopted by most of the Boards which have not already cottage homes, and there is no doubt that in the absence of sufficient scattered homes, that is where children are boarded-out with foster-parents, and for those children whom the Guardians have not adopted, the cottage home is obviously the best way of dealing with them. Of course, many people may be of opinion that there is no need to take the children from the Work- house, but that is certainly not supported by the trend of modern opinion, which is strongly against the keeping of children in the Workhouse after they arrive at an age when memory begins to awaken in them. The suggestion of Mr J C Davies that an effort should be made to board out the chil- dren with some other Union is worth con- sideration, and indeed I personally wonder that the Unions in the county did not com- bine on this question, and have an institu- tion for the whole of the county maintained on a proportionate basis. It would have been cheaper in the long run, as would a combined isolation hospital for the several urban and rural cotinello, but in the absence of any such proposals, the establishment of a cottage home for the Ledbury Unions is undoubtedly the best method of complying with the new Order, rather than boarding- out the children with some other Union. The suggestion of the Boarding-out Com- mittee that a house should be taken in one of the rural parishes is a wise one, though the number of parishes where there is a house suitable for the requirements of the Board, is sure to be limited, for void houses in the rural district are far from numerous. Indeed, the reverse is the case, and it is just possible that the Committee may find themselves compelled either to build or rent a house in the town. The cost to the ratepayers is of necessity bound to be more, but all legisla- tion of a social character has to be paid for, and as the Local Government Board has put its foot down on the continuance of the practice of keeping children over three years of age in workhouses, their behests must be obeyed. # Contiary to expectations, the meeting in support of the extension of the franchise to women, held in the open-air last Friday night, was of a very orderly character, due. I believe, in a large measure to, the letter of that grand old representative of the cloth, the Rev. Canon Bulkeley, Rector of Coddington, which appeared in the columns of this journal last week. Canon Bulkeley, who must be a septuagenarian, presided, and in his very instructive remarks as chair- man, laid stress on the fact that women sboul d be given the vote because it is just and right that they should have the vote. With which I heartily agree. The other speakers were eagerly and attentively listened to, if one excepts the groups of noisy children, who seemed to make the occasion of the meeting a pretext for letting off some of their animal spirits. < There is a school in this district which aball be nameless, where owing to the teachers' strike the present head is not the person who formerly ruled over the destinies of the school, and I was in such a position the other day,' that whether I liked to or not, I was compelled to listen to a most expressive opinion from an ex-scholar who bad just passed the school age of 14 and had therefore been able to leave the school. And very joyous the youngster seemed to be over it, too. I caanot, in fairness to all parties, detail the expressions of which I was the unwilling recipient, but if the statement is half true, and the managers of that particular school are cognisant of the facts, then I envy them not their positioa. There is a good deal of speculation locally as to whether the new picture palace will be ready for the proposed date of opening, August pank Holiday next. I hear Qf several friendly little wagers on the proposal, but at present I shall back the workmen. Have any of you working men I readets a new suit stowed away in' your box which you are not aware of. Better make sure, 1 as I heard of one of our young Ledburians who made such a discovery the other day. Personally, I never have any difficulty in the matter of surplus suits, as the one I stand up in is nearly all I possess in that line. If any of you have a surplus suit pass it along. I'll make good use of it and ask no questions. This is the season of Friendly Society anniversaries, garden fetes, and excursions, with flower shows looming ahead. One of our townsmen is moving in the matter of early-closing excursions, and I hear has already arranged a couple, one to Worcester by train and thence by boat to Tewkesbury, and another by road to Symond's Yat. And they promise to be largely patronised, too, by all accounts. ♦ M.P. Beaten by Pigeons is a heading in the Daily Mail." We'll have to put the Whips on to them. TATTLER.
