ROYAL VISIT TO DEVONSHIRE. The Duke and Duchess of York, accompanied by Sir Francis de Winton, the Hon. Derek Keppel, and Lady Katherine Coke, left Paddington by the 11.45 train on Monday, and travelled to Exeter, proceeding thence by special train to Newton Abbot, the nearest station on the main line to Ugbrooke- park, the seat of Lord Clifford of Chudleigh, whose guests they are to be for three days. On the arrival of the train their Royal Highnesses were received by Lord Clifford outside the station, and the members of the District Council presented an address of wel- come. They were accompanied by Mr. Seal-Hayne, M.P. for the division, whose ancestor, William Hayne, was among those who welcomed the Prince of Orange to Newton in 1688. Mr. J. W. Rowell, the Chairman of the District Council, was presented to the Duke and Duchess, after which he presented the Duke with a beautifully-worked address of welcome. His Royal Highness handed Mr. Rowell a formal reply, and within a few minutes the drive through the gaily decorated town to Ugbrooke-park had com- menced. The Royal 1st Devon Yeomanry supplied an escort under Captain Templer, and the Newton Volunteers, under Major Rowell, formed a Guard of Honour. The route through the town was lined with volunteers from all partt of South Devon. In celebration of the visit all the school children of Newton Abbot, Highweek, and Kingsteignton, to the number of about 3000, were entertained at tea on the Recreation Ground by Mr. Seale-Hayne, M.P., who also presented each child with a copy of the New Testament. Commemorative medals were also distributed to all the children of Mr. J. A. Nix, the Unionist candidate for Mid- Devon. The house party at Ugbrooke to meet their Royal Highnesses consisted of the Duke and Duchess of Somerset, Lord and Lady Churston, Sir Stafford and Lady Northcote, Sir Redvers and Lady Audrey Btoller, Sir Thomas and Lady Acland, Mr. and Mrs. Kimlyn, Mrs. Delacour, Miss K. Lister, Viscount Valletort, and Mr. Hugh Clifford.
