STATEMENT BY THE CENTRAL CHURCH COMMITTEE FOR DEFENCE AND INSTRUCTION. At a meeting of the Executive held at the Church House, Westminster, on July 16th, the Duke of Devonshire, Chairman of the Committee, presiding, it was resolved That this Committee make the following statement as to their action in the past and their attitude in the future with regard to the Welsh Church Bill. The Committee assert that the subject of the Disestablishment and Disendowment of the Church in Wales has not been duly placed before the electorate as a definite issue at any General Election since 1895 (which resulted in the return of a majority pledged to oppose Welsh Disestablishment), and, therefore, should not be the subject ctf legislation without a further appeal to the country. They further assert that the assurances which led to the passage of the Parliament Act, and the Parliament Act itself, have been violated. The Government pledged themselves that full weight should be attached to expressions of public opinion as to Bills in the course of passage under the Parliament Act, and that the House of Commons should have ample opportunity of considering such expressions and of modify- ing legislative proposals accordingly; The Committee have acted throughout upon the assurances given, and the implied spirit of the Parliament Act. They have aimed at providing the means through which public opinion might make itself heard. As a result it has been placed beyond dispute that the Bill is opposed to the wishes of an overwhelming majority of the people of the country there have been presented to the House of Commons petitions from Wales and England in excess of any signed against any other Bill; demonstra- tions and meetings have been held against the measure, unparalleled in number and attendance and, in addition, protests have recently been signed by over 100,000 adult Nonconformists in Wales against the Dis- endowment clau3es of the Bill. Not only, however, have the Government treated these remarkable evidences of public opinion with studied contempt, but they have refused to allow the House of CommoIltJ the opportunity deliberately provided in the Parliament Act of considering even the slightest modification of the terms of the Bill. In view of these facts, and being deeply impressed not only with the unj ust and injurious character of the measure, but also with the sincere and widespread opposition to it, the Committee declare that if the Bill becomes an Act they will do all in their power to bring about its repeal as a result of a successful appeal to the country at a General Election. They claim that this decision is in accordance with Mr Asquith's declaration in the House of Commons on February 21st, 1911, when he said This is as certain as daylight, in ninety-nine cases out of one hundred the new House of Com- mons both could and would reverse legislation which had been shown by the General Election to be opposed to the will of the masses of the electors."
Wellington Heath. This lovely hamlet lies about H miles north-west of Ledbury. It is somewhat of a miniature Mal- vern, standing on hilly ground, though it is hid from view from the town of Ledbury by the Frith Wood, behind which it is sheltered from the north. The houses are dotted here and there between the two hills. The road leading to the Heath is rather hilly in parts, and its undulating formation gives it a romantic touch. Hope End, once the residence of Elizabeth Barrett- Browning, the poetess, is close to the village, but the building afterwards gave way to a modern mansion, built by the late Mr C A Hewitt, who was unfortunately compelled to leave the place owing to it being gutted by fire. From the top of the Heath some lovely landscapes are obtained. The Worcestershire Beacon. The highest of the Malvern Range, i,39fj feet high. Immediately overlooking the town of Malvern, 8 miles from Ledbury. From the top, when a clear day, may be seen the Bristol Channel, Worcester (8 miles), Gloucester (20), Cheltenham (22), Tewkes- bury Abbey (14), Hereford Cathedral, Evesham (21), the Wrekin, Clee Hills, Radnor Forest, May Hill, the Cotswolds, Edge Hill, etc., etc. A series of carriage drives to the top of the hill has been con- structed, and affords easy access to visitors either on foot or by carriage. As a permanent memorial of her late Majesty's long reign, the Diamond Jubilee Committee of 1897 set apart from the subscriptions it received several hundred pounds for the erection of an Indicator, which occupies the site of the great bonfire on the summit of the hill, On a marble base and truncated pillar, bearing the appropriate inscription, "The earth is the Lord's and the fulness thereof," is fixed a circular plate of phosphor bronze, protected by a thick sheet of plate glass. On it is engraved a map of tho surrounding country for a distance of 66 miles, Round the margin is a reproduction of the most salient features of the landscape, with their names and distances in miles. Places actually visible under favourable conditions. and whose direction merely is shown are indicated by different kinds of type. -6

PROFITABLE POULTRY CULTURE. BY n ALPH Ft ALI.RN. Lecturer to the Hjrts County Council Editor of Monthly Hints 011 Poultry, &c. (All rights reserved.) I A SUCCESSFUL BREEDING SEASON. (CONTINUED.) [Readers are particularly requested to note that this series of articles commenced with the first issue in January. In order to obtain their full value, the earlier articles should be read in conjunction with the current one.] The exceptional heat we have been ex- peirencing necessitated temporary cessaion of the series of articles-" A Successful Breeding Season "-in order that I might draw your attention to what I described as hot-weather treatment of poultry, but we can now return to the old subject. Dietary for Week-old Chickens was the subject under discussion. I have already told you that I do not believe in strict adherence to the "dry-feed" system. Youngsters continually fed on small or brok- en grains do not mature rapidly, and rarely or never attain full development. Extremes are invariably bad. Alternate feeds of soft food and hard grain, are, in my opinion, the best; but even with this accepted rule, intelligent application of it is necessary to ensure success. A little and often is one excellent rule. Never permit the young chicks to eat to repletion, excepting at the last meal at night. Your aim is to keep them active, and an over-fed chick, like an over-fed person, rarely displays activity. Activity, I have often written, is the keynote to health. Ring the changes frequently in your dietary is another maxim to bear in mind. It will stimulate their appetites, they will relish the change. Spratt's Chicken Meal and Chikko are standard preparations and excellent food for growing stock. Variety can be obtained by giving an occasional feed of oatmeal moistened with milk or made into porridge-a i ew whole groats-a little boiled rice, particularly during hot weather-while the scraps from the house can always be minced up and utilised. Green food is a necessity, but should never be given in such quantities as to permit it to wither. Just a sufficiency that will be eagerly eaten up, and whilst they are young it must be cut up for them into suitable pieces. Sharp grit of a size suitable for chickens should always be before them. Without it they cannot possibly digest their food, and bad digestion is the forerunner of diarrhoea, a disease particularly fatal to young chickens. especially in the warmer weather. Pure clean drinking water that has not been exposed to the rays of the sun is another necessity. Do not think me weari- some when I keep harping against the water being exposed to the sun. Some hundreds of dead chicks are sent to me annually for post-mortem examination, and sunburnt water is too frequently the cause of in- flammation which has resulted fatally. Rerarting to the question of green food, I have always been a great believer in giving a chopped onion to young stock occasionally. Quite recently my attention has been drawn to a letter which appeared in Eggs," in which the writer—a Mr Chappelet--ardently ad vocates an onion meal every day. His letter is as interesting as it is convincing, I therefore reproduce a portion of same for your guidance. It may interest you to know that I have found chopped raw onions of the greatest benefit to summer chicks. I knew of them for bronze turkey poults, but had not hitherto tried them for baby chicks. Now, I consider them a first-rate preventive of, and antidote to, white diarrhoea, and from the experience of this season should not be afraid to undertake the raising of a very large percentage of summer chicks from average stock. About the middle of May, after very trying weather for chicks, I had two broods of fifty baby chicks, and one brood of two months old, badly out of sorts and ill with diarrhoea. After treating them for their symptoms principally with puinine, it was up to me to discover something that they could and would eat and digest. It was then that I tried feeding them exclusively on wholemeal barley, liberally mixed with raw chopped onions. The chicks, one and all, ate it with delight, picking out the onions as though they were plums. At once the diarrhoea left them and they almost all recovered, the older ones feathering in three or four day's time. Since then, working with the same pens, incubators, and brooders, I have not had a single case of diarrhoea, and hardly one sick chicken, through the impossible weather we have been enduring." (To be continued.)

LIFE IN NORTH QUEENSLAND. Old Ledbury Boy's Impressi ms. F iL By G, o. T. Smith, of Charters Towers, North Queensland.] (Continued from July 11). Several Ledbury people have written to me and asked me what animals or birds are to be seen in this district, and for their benefit I will just mention a few I know of and what we have seen. My brother Jim when working out on the Western Plains often went out with the kangaroo shooters on Saturday afternoons and Sundays. These men go out into the bash at certain times of the year and shoot the kangaroos and walla- bies for their hides, which fetch anything up to 2s 2d per lb. There are also mobs of wild goats roaming about the bush, which the shooters kill, and sell the hides. The system they use to keep the skins is very simple, until such time that they can get sufficient to bring them into the markets. When an animal is killed they just skin it and leave the carcase for the rooks or birds of prey to devour. Occasionally if they want meat in the camp, the best portions of the goat are brought home. This meat is delicious, especially when the goat is young, and it looks like mutton to the ordinary person. In fact, townspeople often get it sold to them here as mutton and are none the wiser. The kangaroo tail makes a delicious soup. The skins are brought into the camp and stretched^but on boards to dry, after which they are dressed with salt-petre and arsenic. The arsenic is to keep off the ticks and blow-flies, which will destroy a good skin in no time. Emus are plentiful out on the downs, and we have a nice skin of one shot by Jim while out there. These birds greatly resemble an ostrich, but their feathers are peculiar and coarse like hair. They are swift runners and can kick as hard as a horse. There is not a great demand for their skins, as no one can find a success- ful reci pe for curing them properly. We have had ours over two years now, and have used it as a mat, but still a kind of oil oozes from the roots of the feathers. Opossums also abound in all parts of the country, where there are plenty of hollow logs for them to sleep in during the day. They roam about at night, and anyone in search of them generally lays snares. They greatly resemble the English squirrel in their habits, as they spend a greater part of their time in trees. Anyone in search of sport prefers to sit down under a tree on a moonlight night and wait for them to run along the branches, when they can pop them over with a small rifle. The hunter, as in the case of kangaroo shooting, always keeps his prey on the wind- ward side of him, as their sense of smell is very quick. Cockatoos, galah parrots, mag- pies, and all kinds of talking birds are very plentiful throughout the Northern and Western districts. I may say that when the camp broke up after a three or four months' sojourn on the plains, there were quite a number of pets to divide amongst them. They consisted of two young emus, one baby kangaroo or wallaby, one opossum and two cockatoos. Jim brought home a young cockatoo which used to roam about the yard and utter the most unearthly yells you ever heard. It did not live long, how- ever, as it broke its leg and had to be destroyed. Being a tropical climate this country is infested with snakes, and during March and April, which is the close season, they are more plentiful and savage. It would take me too long to relate here the experiences of people I have met with from the Bush with these venomous reptiles. They are of all sizes and species, but the majority of them are deadly poisonous, and one small puncture in any part of a person's body from their fangs will prove fatal, if not immediately attended to, and the un- lucky victim will succumb in less than 20 minutes. Most of the North Queensland State schools instruct the children in the first aid in case of snake bite. The Bush- man's usual proceedure if bitten by a snake is to tie a piece of rag or string just above the puncture, if bitten on the arm or leg, so as to stop the circulation of the blood. He then takes out his knife and cuts the piece of flesh clean out, afterwards applying per- mangate of potash crystals if available. Nearly every day during this time of the year there are accounts ia the daily news- papers where people have been bitten by snakes. Only in yesterday evening's paper I saw an account where some local lads had a narrow escape at the river with a savage brute. I have annexed the cutting hereto, so that you can see for yourself what it says :—" On Sunday, or so it is said, a party of young men from the Post Office went out to the Weir, embarked in a boat and courted a watery fate upon the rolling waves. Just as the excitement of a sea- faring life was becoming monotonous the most daring member of the crew espied a large snake on the far bank. The boat was' brought close and finally touched the shore. Then the reckless swash buckler made a desperate swipe at the quarry with his oar, but, oh, merciful heavens missed his mark. At once the deadly reptile took the war into the enemy's camp. That is to say he sprang into their boat. Simultaneously and with equal agility the mighty hunter leaped out, leaving his companions to their awful fate. After a few exciting second?, however, they chased the invader from the vessel and escaped with no casualties. The snake also is still at large and in th<) best of health." Now North Queensland is not without its good points, for even if Nature has provided our lovely country with these good for nothing reptiles, it has also provided us with ways and means of keeping these creatures from monopolising the country altogether. There is a large bird, or at least a fair sized bird, called the laughing jackass, who makes it his business to kilt as many of these reptiles as possible. When I spent my first night out, down on the banks of the Burdekin River, I was awakened at daybreak by the weird laughing of this bird. It appears that they swoop down upon a snake if not too large and catching hold of it by the back of its neck carry it to a great height and let it drop, which of course smashes it to atoms. After they have killed a snake in this fashion they revel in a hearty laugh. Turning to the agricultural and pastoral view of things I am pleased to say we have had a fair rainfall this year taking the country generally, and everything points to a continuance of good times. Last year wa produced sufficient sugar to supply all Australia, considerably over two million tons of cane going through the mills. Our farmers continue to make substantial pro- gress, the various industries steadily in- crease, and, as the settlement of land proceeds, must still further help to swell the volume of our exports. In 1896 our dairying industry was practically non-existent, the butter produced being worth £ 89. Now, as a whole, it is worth to us about 2! millions sterling annually. The butter export in- creased from a value of £ 666,000 in 1912, to Y,833,000 in 1913. We have 380,000 dairy cattle in the State; 53 butter factories 51 cheese factoriesand five factories devoted to the prod uction of condensed milk. Last year the latter dealt with 7! million pounds weight of fresh milk. In 1912 our cheese output was valued at £ 640— last year over £ 42,000. The value of our stock is estimated at over 19 millions sterling, and our pastoral and agricultural industries combined are producing over £ 23,000,000 sterling per annum. If the J efforts now being made to cope with our prickly pear difficulty are successful, a9 seems likely, a very large area of rich country which can be successfully worked in small areas will ba available for settlers. Our local supplies are obtaining greater prominence and our wool production is in- creasing. The signs point to a large increase in our meat exports, and our trade generally is gradually expanding on sound and safe lines. Bananas, pineapples, coffee and cotton thrive well in North Queensland, but the climate is too hot for growing apples, pears or other English fruits, which we get as a delicacy from the Garden of Australia," viz, Tasmania. Referring to the sugar cane growing I might mention that all white labour is now employed in the fields, whereas a few years ago a black race of people called Kanakas were employed. These blacks were recruited from the South Sea Islands and elsewhere lor various terms of employment, but this system constituted a system almost on the borders of slavery, and the blacks were often running away before their terms were expired. It was at this time, so I understand, that the Govern- ment sought measures to depart these blacks from the country, saying that the work could be made profitable by the employment of white labour. The cane growers were very sore about this and pleaded that the cultivation of cane would go back when the black labour was done away with. Despite their efforts, however, a Bill was passed which resulted in the return of the Kanakas to their native islands in the South Seas, where civilisation is only in its infancy. The result was that white labour had to be employed, and wages have gone on in- creasing since that day. Most of the cane now is cut by contract or piece work. Gangs of four to eight men sometimes make £ 6 or £7 per week in the cutting season, but it is very hard work. Pearling industry is carried on up in the .extreme North, and a visitor to Thursday Island may often see a fleet of small vessels engaged in this business cruising around the islands. The divers are mostly Japanese, as very few white men will risk their lives in these tropical waters, which are all infested with sharks. (To be continued.)

CRICKET CHAT. I [BY THE TYKE. "] I Colwall and Ledbury met on the former's ground on Saturday, and the game ended in a draw, Colwall having one wicket to fall and requiring 51 runs to save them from defeat at the call of time. Ledbury, who were minus the services of their captain, C B Masefield, T H Hayes officiating, won the toss and took first knock, Hoult and Brown going in first, and facing Dagger and Spills- bury. With 20 on the board Hoult was bowled by Spillsbury, and Jim Smith suc- -ceeded him. The pair made a useful stand, and brought on a change of bowlers, which proved effec- tive, as at 56 Brown was bowled by Giles for 22. James was the next batsman and he soon set a merry tune, laying on the wood to good effect. At 92, however, after scoring 27 out of 36 for the third wicket, he was splendidly caught on the boundary by Sanderson, and made way for Harry Smith, who only scored a single before placing a ball from Giles in the safe hernds of Brookes at square leg. Hayes then joined Jim Smith, who had been batting stolidly, but at 115 the left-hander was cleverly taken by Spills- bury close in on the leg side. Smith had made 42, which proved to be top score of the match. Williams joined the acting captain, but it was his fate not to receive a single ball, and he was run out at 122. Guy Smith only made a single before Dagger bowled him, but with Clarke in another useful stand was made. Clarke was suffering from a sprain and could not bat with his wonted freedom, and moreover he had to have a runner soon after he went to the wickets. In company with Hayes, however, he made a useful stand, the wicket adding 26 runs before Haves was bowled by Meakin for a brisk 32, which included five 4's. Kendrick and Watts were soon dismissed by Spillsbury, and the venture closed for 159. Colwall opened their innings with Sander- son and Giles, and Williams and James were the bowlers. The batsmen made a very useful start and sent up the 50 by good cricket. Jim Smith and Hoult were requisitioned in the attack, and at 59 Giles was well taken from a running catch on the leg side by Kendrick off Jim Smith for a steady 23. At 74 Hoult bowled Sanderson for a fine 39, and James and Williams resuming the attack wickets fell fast, Meakin being the only other batsman to make a stand. With the score at 108 for 9 wickets stumps were drawn, and another over would probably have finished the match. Meakin made 2i. James had 3 wickets for 24, Williams 4 for 40, Jim Smith 1 for 16, and Hoult 1 for 21. Eastnor were visitors to West Malvern on Saturday, and a capital game resulted, in which Eastnor triumphed by 26 runs. Bat- ting first the Castle men made a bad start, losing Court at 2 and Crookes at 16, while Maddox departed at 33. This brought Phillips and Browning together, and the pair put on 35 runs. Phillips played a capital innings for 35, and Browning's 14 was a useful contribution. After this the bowlers got the upper hand for a time, but Butler and C Winter made a useful stand for the ninth wicket, which added 32 runs, of which number the younger player was responsible for 21. There was no further addition to the score, and Butler was left to carry out bis bat for 10. A F Evans secured 5 wicketij. A Evans* 3 and Cook 2. West Malvern made a better show with the bat than they usually do against Eastnor and replied with 101, 26 short of their opponents' total. lbev lost two wickets cheaply, but Wilson (28) and Austen (20) made a good stand for the third wicket, adding 47. Then McDonald (12 not out) and Fitzsimmons (12) put on 19 for the seventh wicket. Court and Winter bowled unchanged, the former being credited with 6 wickets for 45 runs and Winter 3 for 44.
