Subscri JL ptions should be sent to Mr . R . B . Marston , the editor of the Fishing Gazette .
Another proposed memorial deserves more than a passing word . The Lord Bishop of
JL <_ 7 L Sarum has suggested that something should be done for the memory % / of the Rev . Willia m
Barnes , the ' Dorset Poet , * whose death we chronicled a short time ago . This appeal is
a strong one to the wide circle of Mr . Barnes ' readers , in fact to all lovers of genuine English
speech and homely English manners . The Bishop JL selects a very «/ good O examp J . le in the
following : Zoo now mid nwone ov us vorget
The pattern our vorefathers zet ; But each be fain to underteake Some work to meake vor others' gai ' n
, That we mid leave mwore good to sheare , Less ills to bear , less souls to grieve , An' when our hands do vail to rest
It mid be vrom a work , a-blest . , Mr . H . J . Moule , Dorchester , is the secretary
to the fund . The Queen has been graciously pleased to
accept a copy of Mr . Walter Montagu Kerr ' s book of travels , entitled 'The Far Interior . '
The presentation was made through Lord Frederic Kerr . —Morning Post .
The annual dinner of Messrs . W . H . Smith & Sons' staff cricket club was held at the
Holborn Restaurant on Saturday , the 6 th inst ., and a very successful affair it was . Most of
t / the heads of departments were present . The Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News has
given a group of portraits of those who took a part X in the proceedings JL CJ . Some of the por A-
traits can hardly be spoken of as ' striking likenesses , ' hut , on the whole , the p icture is
very interesting . Sunday school teachers and others who
wish to purchase reward cards should certainly see those published by the Society for
Pro-Am / % J mofcing Christian Knowledge . The cards are exceptionally attractive .
