AGRICULTURAL TRAINING FOR WOMEN. I The Countess of Warwick made an earnest appeal on Friday afternoon, at a meeting held at the Mansion House, on behalf of her agricul- tural scheme for women. It is three years since the Lady Warwick Hostel at Reading was started with the object of affording training to educated women in the lighter branches of agriculture. Its success has more than fulfilled the most sanguine expectations, and the scheme has now outgrown the limits of one person's responsibility and purse. The Hostel and grounds no longer suffice for the demands made upon them, and just at present a favourable opportunity has occurred for the purchase of a fine site in the neighbourhood of Reading. The public-spirited owner of the land offers it at a very reasonable price, and it is for the purchase of this site that Lady Warwick appealed. Fortunes are not made in agriculture, Lady Warwick rightly remarked but trained women can and do make as good a competence in this as in other professions; and it has the advantage of being very healthy work. Substantial sums of money were promised, and it is hoped the purses of the city companies will be opened for a project which is not by any means Utopian but has already the roots of success.
