I CYCLISTS AS SOLDIERS. COMPLIMENTARY DINNER AT CHESTER. Not long after the South African War broke out seven members of the Chester Cycling Club bravely volunteered to fight for the country's cause. They have been through some trying experiences on the South African veldt, and it is pleasing to know that four of these volunteers have already returned to England safe and sound and none the worse for the performance of their duty. To welcome these warriors, whose names are Messrs. Pritchard, C. A. Cowie, J. Done (Malpas) and T. Kinsey (Calveley), a compli- mentary dinner was held at the headquarters of the club, the Bull and Stirrup Hotel, on Tuesday evening. i\n the absence of the president, Mr. JJaammees s Frrrostf Mr. A. Vernon occupied the chair, and after the loyal toasts had been duly honoured he proposed in felicitous terms the health of the four members alluded to and Mr. Fred ?ones who was also present at the dinner and who has recently come home after rendering willing ser-   Afr' can campaign. The Chair- man said he was quite sure they were all proud of these men, who promptly responded over a year aag^o o to the call for volunteers.
