HOW THE MUNICIPALITIES CATER FOR SPORT. Most of the important towns of Great Britain now provide some- thing or other, under municipal guidance and control, in the way of sport for the inhabitants, or in provision for the enjoyment of sport. Much of this is entirely free; but in certain cases, and under particular conditions, a small charge is made. Occasion- ally, residents are allowed to enjoy the sport, or the ground for it, free, whilst visitors are I admitted to it at a very moderate cost. In any case it may be taken that such sport, or provision for it, is one of the amenities of civic life for usually it would be quite impossible for people to obtain what they want in this way at anything like a small expendi- ture of money, time, and trouble, were it not for what the towns, as municipalities, are doing in this manner. Several towns now boast free tennis-courts, and in others only a nominal charge is made for an hour on the municipal courts. Seaside places used formerly to have almost a monoply of this game, as provided for by their Councils; but to-day nearly every town in England has made equally good and cheap provision for lawn-tennis by its devotees. The grand old English game of bowls has made tremendous pro- gress of late years. Once practi- cally confined — with any en- thusiasm I-to south-west Eng- land, it has now conquered the affections of a large concourse of men right from Devonshire to the Tweed, and hardly a town along the North Wales Coast can be found wherein during tha past decade extraordinary progress has not been made in the number of bowling-clubs formed,

I CORRESPONDENCE. We do not hold ourselves responsible fot thp opinions of our correspondents. I I To the Editor. I ] OUR BELGIANS. Dear Mr Editor, Monsignor Dewachter, auxiliary bishop ot Malines, acting here as Vioar- General of Cardinal Mercier, came bere on Saturday evening. Later he heard of the generosity and kindness of the people of Barmouth to the refugees. He showed himself greatly impressed, and wished it to be known far and wide that he wa.s very deeply touched by their charity and offered them one and all his sincerest tribute of thanks. He said this publicly at the Belle Vue Hall, and told me himself how his feelings had been aronsed by the kindness shown by one and all, and that he desired his t warmest appreciation to -be accorded to everyone in Barmouth. So I ask you to do this. How biseompatdots welcomed him ¡ could be seen by the ovation offered on the arrival and departure of his train. A more remarkable outburst of human feeling could scarcely have been witnessed. He was welcomed by FatberWilcock. The children sang; tbey offered him flowers; the men shook hands and cheered, and read an address of welcome. It was a beautiful sight to see bow this patriotic Bishop took notice even of the smallest child, and his loving words were full of inspiration and hope. A true Bishop of souls had come into the midst of the Belgian victims of German tyrrany. Some of these people," said he, speaking to me of his compatriots, may be poor indeed, bofe the poorer they are the dearer to God, and I have come to visit them because I am iesponsible to God." The people of Barmoutb will, I feel sure, be glad to receive the thanks at such a man as this, and I am proud to have met him. Yours truly, C. A. MENDHAM, Mount Argus, 27th March, 1916. P.S.-I bear Monsignor Dewacbter is sending a Belgian Priest to give a message to the Belgians on Wednes- day.
