RUN OVER BY A MOTOR-CAR.-On Monday, I Gilbert Morgan (13), of 9, Chepstow-road, New. port, was walking behind a lorry in Chepstow- road when he suddenly dashed in front of aotor-car AtE. 877, was knocked down by it and was so severely injured that he had to be taken to the hospital.

SALB OF PEDIGREE STOCK. -Amongtit the buyers at the Ifton Manor pedigree shorthorn stock sale at Newport, by Mr John Thornton, on Friday in last week, were Lord Tredegar, Mr Rees Keene, Mr Richard Stratton, and Mr C. D. Phillips. His lordship give 81 guineas and 100 guineas re- spectively for two cows. The highest price given for a bull was 1711 guineas, which was purchased for export to South America. Thirty-five cows realised in all £ 1.6*24 17s 6d, or an average of £ 46s 8a 6d, and twelve bulls £ ^1 18s, an average of j641 16s 6d, the total amounting to £ 2,126 15s 6d. LORD TREDEGAR ON EDUCATION.-In distri- buting prizes to the students at Oakfield House School, at Newport Town Hall, on Wednesday afternoon, Viscount Tredegar referred to the eycellent work done by the school, which is con- ducted by Mr Godfrey Hope, M.A., and expressed the wish that the great scheme of free education, which was now being discussed in Parliament and by the country generally, would not interfere in any way with such excellently-conducted schools as that. He was an old Eton boy himself, and appreciated the remarks m,,tde by Mr Hope on the subject of educating boys for admission to the great public schools. A high scholastic authority had complained of the difficulty experienced in meeting the wishes of parents who preferred the request that their sons might be educated for their proper station in life, the difficulty being to find out what was the station in life desired. His lordship held that a first-class education was the best education which could be given for whatever station in life it pleased God to call the lad. (Hear, hear.) Reference had been made to the cultivation of hobbies, Mr Hope urging that not only every lad should have a hobby, but that the hobby should be worked out. His lordship said he remembered an incident of a parent on being asked what his boy's hobbies were replying that he did not know that he had anv hobby except that of throwing stones at everything he saw. (Laughter). That was a very usual hobby, but one which should be counteracted as soon as possible, other- wise it might lead a lad into difficulties. (Laugh- ter).
