CORRESPONDENCE. We do not hold ourselves responsible foi the opinions of our correspondents. BILLETING OF TROOPS. To the Editor. Dear Sir,— I noticed in your account of the pro- ceedings of the Urban District Council, a .bort time back, that they were of opinion that steps should be taken to secure the billeting of troops in the town when next billeting season comes. The ratepayers are anxious to know if adequate steps will be taken in good time to give voice to these opinions, or will the whole matter be bungled as un- doubtedly it was last year, to the great Joss of the lodging-house people and tradesmen of the town. Why will not the Council take into their confidence the Tradesmen's Association, the Im- provement Committee, and any other public body in the town? A scheme might then be formulated in co-opera- tion with adjoining towns and villages— say from Aberdovey to Harlech, A strong joint committee might then be formed. This committee could call to their aid the Member for the County, the Lord Lieutenant, the High Sheriff, the Chairman of the County Council, Mr William George, and any one else who may have influence in the proper quarter. Such measures, if taken in good time, may possibly be successful. This district should look to it that they are first in the field this year, and not wait to slugglishly follow in the rare. I trust, Mr Editor, that the Council will forthwith call a conference of the various public bodies in the town to go thoroughly into the matter and decide upon a plan of campaign. Thanking you, I am, &c., THOROUGH. ADVERTISING BARMOUTH. To the Editor. Sir — May I, through the medium of your columns, ask those whom it may con- cern, what has become of the Adver- tising and Improvement Committee of the town ? In past years this Commit- tee did much to bring the advantages of the town and neighbourhood before the holiday public of the large centres of England. Like most other movements in our mldst, it seems, after a period of great usefulness, that this Committee is grossly neglecting a golden' oppor- tunity. I asked a member the other day why they. had rested on their oars in mid- stream. His reply was terse Lack of support." No doubtl there is a great deal of truth in this. There are com- panies and individuals in the town who reap a rich harvest from visitors,' and yet will not raise a finger to help the funds,—they leave the work and the subscribing to the few, among whom are bard-working widows, while they reap the benefit. But is this, disgrace- ful and unjust as no doubt it is, suffi- cient reason why nothing whatever should be done in the way of adver- tising. Thousands of people who were in the habit of going abroad, or frequenting the fashionable sea-side towns of the East and South Coasts, are now, for adequate reasons, debarred from doing SOJ and are looking for fresh pasture. There is not a sea side in the Kingdom tha(j is safer from the perils of war—it is notoriously healthy—an excellent centre for the mountaineer-its drives and boating facilities are without an equal in the country. Yet, with all its advantages, its name is hardly ever seen in the daily press. Surely somebody is to be blamed. May I make an appeal to the Adver- tising Committee to meet and consider their position, and if they are not pre- pared to act, they should resign en bloc, and make rocm for others. ANXIOUS.
REVIEW. IRE y W THE FELLOWSHIP OF SILENCE. By Cyril Hepher and Others. (Mac- millan & Co., London. 4/6 nett.) This charmingly written and fresh little book forcibly reminds us of Thom- as Carlyle's eloquent and profoundly significant words on Silence in Sartor Besartus :—" Silence is the element in which great things fashion themselves together; that at length they may em- erge, full-formed and majestic, into the daylight of Life, which they thenceforth to rule. Not William the Silence only, but all the considerable men I have known, and the most undiplomatic and unstrategic of these forbore to babble of wh ich they were creating and projecting. Nay, n thy own mean perplexities, do thou, thyself but hold thy tongue for one day: on the morrow, how much clearer are thy purposes and 3uties what wreck and rubbish have those, mute workmen within thee swept away, when"ijoti,usive noises were shut out. This book, with a true message is most opportunely published for at no time in the history of our country was silence of greater importance, while at the same time there was never more need for right words spoken in season. As the Editor says Now that this ter- rible war is raging, and Europe is filled with horror and confusion, and the world is ringing with the echoes of the noise and tumult of battle, is there not the greater need of centres of still sil- ence, radiating hope and strength in a world of strife ? For the interesting account of the experiences of Quakersa nd Anglicans, and other chapters on the subject we must send our readers to the book. It is clearly printed on good paper and tastefully got up, and we cordially com- mend it.

The War Loan.—In the current issue of the Barmouth Church Magazine appears the following paragraph under the local notes:—"Many ot us feel keenly how little we can do in a material sense to help the Empire. Up to this we have given some weekly sum for the support of the Belgian Refugees, and have contributed to various Red Cross Funds. There our usefulness has ended. We cannot enlist. We are not engineers and would be useless in a munition factory. Now however our opportunity has come. We can give the Govern- ment our money. Not only we can do this, but it is our duty to do it. It is a clear neglect of duty if we don't. Many will not be able to give a large sum, but in this business of the War Loan the small sum of the many is as important as the large sum of the few. (jive what you can, and be thankful that you have been allowed to help the men fighting for you. This applies to us all!
