SATURDAY, JULY 11, 1914. Topical Tattle. Just a word with reference to the Ports-' mouth trip from Led bury on Saturday, July 18tb. It is now definitely stated that the King will visit Portsmouth on July 18th to inspect the Fleet, which will then be assembled in home waters. The First, Second and Third Fleets and all flotillas will be assembled, which means the largest assembly of battleships ever seen in home waters, and about 400 veB<» Is will be present. In addition no lesB tù.Áu 20 water- planes are to be included in the muster. Tickets for the trip are now selling fast, and it is imperative that all who contemplate travelling by the trip should at once secure their ticket. I would call attention to the letter, the first portion of which appears in this 'issue from an old Ledbury boy in North Queensland. The communication is well worth reading and both this week's and future instalments can be relied upon as an exact recital of life in this far-off colony. ip There seems to be a good deal of spade work necessary before the provisions of the Mental Deficieny Act are fully realised, as note the discussion at the Guardians' meeting on Tuesday. The Act no doubt has its good points, but there is much in its provisions that requires watching, and especially by pareute. The busy season at the local Police Court has commenced, and already we have had a couple of burglary charges investigated. There is no doubt our local force of police have a very busy time at this season of the year, and it says much for the efficiency of our Superintendent and his staff of men that the recent burglaries have not resulted in the perpetrators getting off scot free. I notice out Redmarley way they are begin- ning to get ready for the great day of the year for several parishes round there—the Flower Show on August Bank Holiday at Down House. I am glad to hear that Mr Kirby, the indefatigable hon. secretary, is back again at his post after his recent illness. In his absence Mr W A Trotter has dis- charged the secretarial duties. The sports' schedules are now out. The Guards' Camp at Bromsberrow from August 25 to September 9 next will be certainly the biggest thing in military camps we have had in this district. The camp will consist of the 4th. (Guards) Brigade, 2nd Batt. Grenadier Guards, 2nd, and 3rd.Batts. Coldstream Guards, 1st Batt, Irish Guards, 17th Battery Royal Artillery and 11 Com- panies of the R. A. S. C. The total number of men in camp will be about 3,000, who will be conveyed by a number of special trains to Dymocfc, and march to Bromsberrow Court, which is farmed by Mr A Dyer, and where the camp will be situate. The bands of the various regiments will be in camp. I learn on excellent authority that there is every prospect of a troop of Boy Scoots being formed in Ledbury. One or two gentlemen interested have the matter in hand, and next week I hope to be in a position to give more definite informatioc. The probable Scoutmaster is a townsman who is well known for his interest in all manly sports and athletics, and being no mean gymnast himself be appears to be marked out as just the man for the position. It is hoped to get the troop formed very shortly, so that the Scouts may act as messengers during the forthcoming Army manoeuvres in the district. A party of five residents in South Here- fordshire, four Liberals and one member of the Labour Party, are this week touring Ireland, from Dublin to Belfast, and at the conclusion of the tour will submit a report on the Home Rule question. One of the delegation is Mr A Rudall, of Ledbury, a member of the Labour Party, and next week we hope to give an article from bis pen describing bis experiences. The itinerary covered by the party is as follows :—Monday, Dublin to Mullingar, then to Longford Tuesday, Longford to Sligo; Wednesday, Sligo to Inniskillen Thursday, Inniekilleu to Belfast. They leave Belfast for Liverpool on Saturday. ♦ Mr Rudall's article will embrace a sketcl. of the tour with personal impressions. The party of which Mr Rudall is a member numbers in all 27, and represents South Herefordshire, West Hartlepool, Grantham, and Huddersfield. Another party of 30 from Scotland left there on Monday for a different route. Mr T D Morgan is in charge of the South Herefordshire party. Apropos of the passing of Mr J. ¡RPpL Chamberlain a Birmingham postman u¡.>d to tell a good story of the time whmi Ms Cham berlain and Mr Austen Chamberlain were both in the Cabinet together. Their letters were sent in the special official bag, and the guard who transferred them to the postmen at Birmingham shcuted as he threw the bags down, Tbree for the old man and one for the nipper."

) Bosbury. Four miles from Ledbury. Quaint and delight- ful, was once an important place, the residence of the Bishops of Hereford. Its Church, dating from the 12th century, has a detached tower. There is a fine oak-panelled room at the Crown Inn. The ashes of Edna Lyall, the authoress, are deposited in the Churchyard, where there is a cross erected to her memory. The Herefordshire Beacon, or British Camp 1,096 feet high. Four miles from Ledbury. Some very magnificent views may be obtained from the summit of this eminence. Beyond the Beacon are the Midsummer and Hollybush Hills, whose sum- mits are also crowned by another ancient fortress and camp. The Camp forms one of the most inter- esting and attractive objects in the district. The summit of the hill is crowned by one of the most ancient hill fortresses or camps in the kingdom. The trenches vary from six to twelve feet deep, and in some places 30 feet wide, and are capable of con- taining an army of 20,000 men. The citadel is about 50 yards in diameter, and consists of a thick stone wall, covered with moss, earth and turf, and defended by a deep ditch. This almost impreg- nable fortress is 1,100 yards in length, and 2,970 in circumference, and covers an area of 44 acres. Jn addition to its historic interest a magnificent panor- amic view is obtained from its crest.

MOTOR ACCIDENT.-On Monday night a little three-year-old girl named Lily Taylor, daughter of Mr and Mrs William Taylor, of Well Yard, Homend-street, Ledbury, had a narrow escape as the result of beingjsnocked down by a motor car. About 7.30 in the evening a number of children were playing on the road opposite the entrance to the Kennels, when a motor car, A B 3622, owned by Mr W H Gabb, of Beauchamp Court, Worcester, and driven by his son, Mr G R Gabb, passed along, coming from the direction of Bosbury. The car flowed down when approaching the children, but the little girl ran out from a gateway on the opposite side of the road to the Kennels, and ran straight in front of the motor,. She was knocked down, but fortunately the wheels of the car did not go over her. She was at once picked up by the motorists and conveyed to the Ledbury Cottage Hospital, where happily on examination it was found that she had sustained nothibg more serious than bruises to the face, hands and legs, and after these were dressed the little one was removed to her home, where she is progressing satisfactorily Nurse Laxton, Clarence House, Worcester Ledbury, wishes to announce that she is at iy to undertake Maternity Cases, privately, tit lit low fee of 10s.

BIBLE Sociwy CF.NTEN.Ary.-At the Ledbury Parish Church on Sunday evening, the Rector (the Rev F W Carnegy) preached a special sermon on the claims of the British and Foreign Bible Society, the Herefordshire centenary of which is being celebrated this month. Taking as his text the words, "Thy word is as a lantern unto my feet," the Rector, in the course of his address, said that the Herefordshire auxiliary of this Society, which was the chief agent and the chief source of supplying the Holy Scriptures in all languages throughout the whole world, was formed 100 years ago on July 29th, and they were specially asked and invited to assist the Society, the parent branch of which was formed 110 years ago. He went on to trace the growth of the Society from the time of its formation, until in the year 1913 no less than eight millions of copies of the Bible or portions of it were printed in various languages, and altogether up to the present time no less than 244 millions of copies in 457 languages or dialects had been circulated. He went on to point out that a thing which was easily come by was lightly valued, and referred to the time when to buy a Bible meant the expenditure of a large sum of money. In fact, they were very scarce and one Bible was bought, say, for a Church and was chained to the desk, which no doubt they had seen in their own county of Herefordshire. People in those days flocked to the Church to read the Bible or hear it read to them. He wondered how many read their Bible to-day when it was 30 cheap ? Was it stored away and never looked at ? He was afraid so in many cases. He appealed for funds that night for the Society,to which the offertory would be devoted. The collection amounted to jSl 15s 8d. J. W.

No RESPONSE TO APPEALS POR HELf.—A bathing fatality has occurred at Hereford.

Some motor- ists were called to for help, but they did not stop, and two woodmen who were appealed to said they could do nothing without a boat. The young lady to whom the young man was to be married next month was with a friend about 400 yards away. At the inquest Wednesday the jury returned a verdict of "Accidental death."

THE LOCAL TERRITORIAL REGIMENT.— At the monthly meeting of the Hereford Town Council on Tuesday, Mr G B Greenland (the Mayor) presided. He regretted to find that the name of the Herefordshire Territorial Force was in jeopardy, and moved: "That this Council views with grave apprehension the pro- posal to change the name of the local Territorial Battalion from the 1st Battalion the Hereford- shire Regiment to the Herefordshire Battalion of the King's (Shropshire and Herefordshire) Light Infantry, and strongly supports the protests made to the military authorities by the Lord Lieutenant and the Territorial Association of the county." Alderman Symonds said any change would be prejudicial to recruiting. He seconded the resolution. The motion was agreed to unanimously.
