ON HISTORIC GROUND.

KING GREETS HIS TROUPS.

ENTHUSIASTIC SCENES DESCRIBED.

GENERAL HEADQUARTERS, FRANCE, Monday. -- Exactly fours years ago his Majesty was at St. Omer visiting the Commander-in-Chief of the British Expeditionary Force, then Sir John French (writes the Press Association's special correspondent). This time I had the pleasure of accompanying the party on an extended visit of inspection to various troops and places of interest, the route taken being described roughly as a circle round the Foret de Mormal.

An early start was made from Leboeuf, soon after nine o'clock, and half an hour or so brought us to the town of Bavai, where Divine service was conducted by Bishop Sadlier, of Nelson (N.Z.), who gave a stirring address on the lessons to be drawn from the war to a congregation chiefly composed of overseas officers and men.

Leaving about eleven o'clock, the Royal party passed through the famous fortress town of Maubeuge, inspecting two divisions drawn up on the road beyond the town.

Here, and elsewhere among the numerous troops reviewed during the day, both the King and the Prince of Wales made a point of stopping and conversing with individual soldiers in the line. Now it was a V.C. with five wound stripes, whom his Majesty remembered decorating in England; again a sergeant with a long row of ribbons across his chest, or some man or officer whom the Prince remembered and greeted as an old acquaintance.

Avesnes was the next place of importance on the programme, and here a body of Australian troops was lined up for review. Luncheon was taken in a small chateau in the town, which Hindenburg had formerly used as his headquarters. Here, too, the Kaiser had visited him more than once. After luncheon the King received the Mayor of the town, who remained at his post throughout the German occupation, and had been compelled to collect a heavy fine imposed by the military authorities after the customary German fashion.

At Avesnes, as at all the towns we passed through, there could be no mistake about the hearty enthusiasm of the inhabitants, as well as of the British or Colonial troops, who thronged the streets, but the most striking manifestation was given in the afternoon at the little town of Landrecies, doubly famous as the scene of the Guards' fight in 1914 and for the forcing of the canal on 4th November this year by the 25th Division.

The Royal party left their cars and walked half a mile or more through the crowded streets, cheered vociferously by the double ranks of soldiers on either side. This was no review, but just a happy informal greeting of soldiers to their King. Somehow or other the cars were brought through the dense throng that rolled forward after the procession, and struggled to get near enough for a good view of his Majesty and the two Princes when they halted at the repaired bridge over the canal.

It was a thoroughly British sight, a good-humoured, enthusiastic crowd, who might have been shouting for the sight of some popular hero of the stage or the football field, instead of the most democratic Royalties in Europe.

A short drive further on, and we came to the spot on the road where the Coldstream Guards held up dense masses of the attacking enemy that autumn night more than four years ago. It was an interesting circumstance that positions here were pointed out to the King by two officers who took part in that gallant struggle against overwhelming odds. One, then a major, now commands the Guards' Division.

In the gathering dusk we left Landrecies, passed through Le Quesnoy, and made for home after a day of historic happenings in places already famous in history.

QUEEN AS AN ACTRESS.

POSES FOR CINEMA DRAMA.

NOVEL ATTRACTION ON FILM.

It is understood that the decision of the a real cinema sensation, even in these democratic days. She will make her debut as a screen actress in "Women Who Won," the film, which is in course of preparation under the auspices of the Women's Service, of whom Lady Frances Balfour is the president.

Her majesty's part in the play was cinematographed during her visit to the Agricultural Hall last Saturday (states the London "Daily Express"). The two producers, Mr. Percy Nash and Mr. Fred Durrant, learned only at the last moment that the scene might be filmed. Four taxis had to be chartered to take the operating machines and the electric lights to the Agricultural Hall, and machines and lights were adjusted only just in time.

The Queen's part in the play was to talk for some time with one of the authors, who was supposed to be engaged on aeroplane work. She had previously made herself familiar with the story, and knew exactly the part she was to enact. The scene was set. The operators began to turn their cranks, and the Queen moved easily and gracefully forward to the spot where the heroine of the story was seated. She spoke to the girl for some moments, and then, according to the book, shook her warmly by the hand. Then, to the dismay of the producers, she faded out of the picture before they had finished. The situation was explained by one of the ladies-in-waiting, and with a smile the Queen went forward again and completed the scene.

The story will appeal to all women. It shows how women's service brings happiness and love to those who, on account of misfortune, have to earn their own living. Two negatives of the film, which will be finished about the end of February, are being taken -- one for this country and one for America.

SUICIDE AFTER INQUIRY.

JUDGE AGAINST COMPENSATION.

At Bow (London) County Court Mrs. Lydia Laura Crafter, a widow, asked for £300 under the Workmen's Compensation Act from Messrs. Estler Brothers, of South Molton Road, Victoria Docks, for the death of her husband by suicide. In February he injured his eye, and for four months gradually became worse and very depressed, and in June he threw himself in front of a train. The jury decided that it was a cause of suicide.

The widow claimed that his suicide was the direct result of the injury to the eye, which had affected his brain.

The defence was that it had nothing to do with it.

Judge Graham said the mere fact of suicide did not raise the probable inference that the injury to the eye was a contributory cause of the suicide. He found for the respondents.

PRIMARY EDUCATION IN BELFAST.

The representative deputation which waited upon the Belfast City Council on Monday, with reference to the condition of primary education in the city, is another proof of the awakened public conscience on this grave question. In our issue of 27th November we expressed our views at some length on the necessity for sweeping changes. It is unnecessary to reiterate them. We are in hearty agreement, with the findings of the conference of leading citizens which has been investigating the matter, and which were presented to the Corporation yesterday. It will be recalled that some years ago a similar deputation waited on the city fathers and made a strong case for reform. On that occasion Councillor Dempsey at once protested, on behalf of the Roman Catholics, against any proposal by which his co-religionists would have to pay a local education rate. He made the case that as the Roman Catholics had provided sufficient school accommodation for their children they should not be asked to help, by means of a rate, to build schools for Protestant children. History repeated itself yesterday, and Councillor Dempsey once more objected, on behalf of his co-religionists, to local control of education. The objection brings us to the root of he matter at once. The entire difficulty in the way is the sectarian one. We do not minimise, and the deputation does not minimise, the difficulty of the position. Similar difficulties have, it is true, been overcome across the Channel; but the religious difficulty has always been more acute in this country. Roman Catholics watch educational matters very closely, and have invariably shown a determination to retain ecclesiastical control. Many in Belfast still recall the time when Protestant and Roman Catholic boys sat side by side in the same classrooms in the city. The arrangement was a happy one, and it was for the good of both sides. It produced a spirit of toleration and of good will which were manifest in the after-life of those who had the benefit of this intermingling in their early days. But the Church of Rome stepped in and put an end to the arrangement, and the results have not been for the good of the city. We must however, deal with the situation as we find it to-day, and the position is that there are 15,000 children for whom there is no primary school education. How is this state of affairs to be remedied; how is the existing overcrowding to be done away, and how are healthier schools to be provided? The best minds in such varied bodies as the Belfast Chamber of Commerce, Queen's University, Joint Committee of National School Managers, Workers' Educational Association, Juvenile Advisory Committee, Ulster Unionist Labour Association, Belfast Co-operative Society, Belfast National Teachers' Association, Belfast and District Principal Teachers' Association, Belfast Secondary Schools, and the Protestant Churches -- have discussed the question, and come to the conclusion that there must be a local education authority, with power to levy an education rate. Against this scheme there is the opposition of the Roman Catholic Church, as expressed in Bishop MacRory's letter and Councillor Dempsey's speech. The hostility of the Church to local control cannot, however, be allowed to delay reform indefinitely. There is no desire to ride roughshed over the feelings of the Roman Catholic people, and we firmly believe that once the principle were established the details would be worked out without the slightest risk to faith or morals of the Catholics. The Corporation has appointed a committee to deal with the subject, which includes Alderman Byrne, who will vigilantly guard the interests of his co-religionists, and we hope that no time will be lost in dealing with the problem. Legislation will be necessary, but with the strong band of M.P. 's from Ulster, which Sir Edward Carson will lead in the new Parliament, the obtaining of the necessary powers should not be impossible. The Nationalists will oppose them tooth and nail and it will be said that this problem should not be grappled with as a local one, but as a national one. If that attitude is taken up we fear that reform on the lines hoped for will be long in coming.

NEWCASTLE YOUTH'S MISHAP.

WEDGED UNDER FLY-WHEEL.

James Johnston, assistant in the employment of the Electric Lighting Co., Newcastle, had a miraculous escape from being mangled in the machinery on Friday evening. It appears that the boy was assisting in starting the engine by pulling on the belt when the engine suddenly back-fired. Johnston failed to release his hold, and he was drawn under the fly-wheel, and so tightly wedged in that it necessitated the dismantling of the engine before he could be extricated.

A large crowd assembled, but owing to the delicate nature of the task few were able to help.

Valuable assistance was, however, rendered by Mr. Manning, Mr. Lyth, electrical engineer of the Slieve Donard Hotel, and Sergt. M'Govern. Dr. Magill and Lt.-Colonel Magill dressed Johnston's wounds, which were found to be slight, but he is still suffering from shock.

THE DERRY ARMS RAID.

SMART SENTENCES IMPOSED.

PRISONER'S PRUDENT CLAIM.

At the Ulster Winter Assizes, Philip Doherty and Thomas Murphy, convicted of burglary at Derry on the 22nd Sept., 1918, were sentenced. Prisoners formed portion of a party who raided the house of Mrs. Terance Nicholson, Beech Hill House, Glendormott, Londonderry, in search for arms.

His Lordship asked had they anything to say?

Doherty -- As this is a political case from start to finish, we claim political treatment when sentenced.

His Lordship -- You have been, both of you, convicted in this case of anything but a political offence -- a cowardly and dastardly outrage. It is a nice kind of case to go at night to a private house occupied by a lady and her servants, and imprison a young lady, and one of you stand over her at the door with a loaded revolver, and the other capture a boy and make him prisoner. Seven of you went about the house with revolvers and ransacked it. It is cowardly in the extreme, and cannot be tolerated. You will each be imprisoned for 18 months with hard labour.

Murphy -- from the date of arrest?

His Lordship -- From the date of the Assizes.

-- -- -- --

Messrs. Stewart Blacker Quin & Co., chartered accountants, Belfast, write us with reference to the case heard at the present assizes -- the King v. Henry M'Candless, James A. Robinson, and Hugh H. Corbett -- that counsel's statement that they managed the books of the North of Ireland Produce Company Ltd., is incorrect, and that they have no official connection with the firm referred to, but they are the accountants to the North of Ireland Advisory (Potato) Committee.

HOURS OF RAILWAYMEN

EFFECT OF THE ALTERATION.

BIG INCREASE IN WAGES BILL.

The change in working hours to eight, just announced, when it comes into operation, will involve a further enormous increase in the wages bill of the railways, even if limited to the running department -- drivers, firemen, guards, and those employed in the actual manipulation of the traffic (states the Labour Correspondent of the London "Daily Telegraph").

The great majority of the men employed in these grades have worked a ten-hours day or 64-hours week, and the reduction of working time to 48 hours, with the present wages unaltered, will mean either the employment of many more men or, what is more likely, an additional 12 hours' overtime, paid at a higher rate. The men employed in the running of the fast long-distance expresses will not benefit by the agreement, as they are paid a day's wage for a mileage run which takes less than eight hours.

On most of the Scottish and Irish railways the working day has been 12 hours, so the agreement means a reduction of 33 per cent. in working time, and a more than proportional rise in wages. The agreement is likely to be followed by a demand for the extension of eight hours to all persons working in the railway service, in addition to those in the running departments.

INFLUENZA RAVAGES.

ACTION BY CITY COUNCIL.

DISEASE TO BE NOTIFIABLE.

At a special meeting of the Belfast Corporation to-day, the Lord Mayor (Alderman Sir J. Johnston, J.P.), presiding, the following resolution was unanimously passed, on the motion of the chairman of the Public Health Committee (Councillor English):--

"Whereas there exists in the county borough of Belfast an epidemic of influenza which in numerous cases develops into septic pneumonia; and whereas it is a matter of urgency that every precaution should be taken to prevent the spread of the said disease,

"Resolved, and it is hereby ordered, that the Infectious Disease (Notification) act, 1882, 52 and 53 Vic. cap. 72, shall apply in the said county borough for the disease known as 'septic pneumonia' for the six months to end 14th June, 1919."

Councillor English said he need hardly remind the members of the Council that there had been a very high rate of mortality from septic pneumonia and ordinary pneumonia. It was highly desirable that the disease should be made notifiable, by which means their medical officer and sanitary staff would be able to get in contact with the cases immediately, and have the houses thoroughly disinfected. He was quite satisfied, after the experience of the past few weeks, that septic pneumonia was highly infectious; and he supposed it sometimes took an epidemic to warn them of the danger they were in, and make them realise the necessity of taking proper precautions. The public should, as far as possible, cease to assemble at wakes, or to visit people suffering from the disease. (Hear, hear.) During the past week three strong men whom he knew had died, all having been in contact with each other in friendly visits. He hoped that when the facts became known this kind of visiting would end. (Hear, hear.)

After a prolonged discussion the resolution was agreed to.

He has served right through the campaign, and has been twice wounded, and gains his decoration for conspicuous bravery during an attack. When his platoon officer was killed, he took command, and was successful in carrying on the advance.

HEROIC DIVINITY STUDENT.

Friday's evening's "London Gazette" notifies the award of the Distinguished Conduct Medal to 61886 Sergeant R. H. Foster, R.A.M.C., 91st Field Ambulance.

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty in charge of a party of stretcher-bearers during an attack on a village. He worked continuously from 3 a.m. to 9 p.m., clearing R.A.P.'s, and while supervising the various squads was constantly exposed to very heavy shell fire. Thanks to his untiring energy about 90 severely wounded men on stretchers were safely and quickly removed, which undoubtedly saved the lives of the men.

Sergeant Foster was a theological student in the Methodist College, Belfast, before the war. He is a son of Rev. J.D. Foster, Methodist minister, who has laboured in various North of Ireland circuits.

A CO. DOWN D.C.M.

The Distinguished Conduct Medal has been awarded to 799 Rifleman James Gibson, 15th Battalion, Royal Irish Rifles (North Belfast Volunteers), for conspicuous gallantry in the field. Rifleman Gibson is a son of the late Mr. David Gibson and Mrs. Gibson, Castlewellan. He was an apprentice in Castlewellan Gardens before enlisting. Sergeant Carson Jones, who was awarded the posthumous honour of the D.C.M. in 1914, also learnt the art of horticulture in these gardens. Each of the three under-gardeners, who answered their country's call in 1914- Riflemen W. Craig, Len. Cooper, and Jim Ingleson -- have made the supreme sacrifice.

NEW MILITARY MEDALLISTS

Mrs. M'Cann, 5 Henryville Street, has received news that her husband, Sergeant James M'Cann, R.A.M.C., has been awarded the Military Medal for bravery on the battlefield. Sergeant M'Cann has 19 years' service to his credit, and has been in France since the beginning of the war. He is well known in football circles, and was formerly employed with Messrs. J.P. Corry & Co., timber merchants, Corporation Street, Belfast. His brother Joseph, who has been discharged from the Army, also holds the Military Medal, and another brother, Thomas, was taken a prisoner at the Battle of the Somme in 1916.

Mr. Robert Lunny, Killymackin, has received intimation that his son, Private James Lunny, Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, has been awarded the Military Medal for gallantry in action. Private Lunny enlisted shortly after the outbreak of the war, joining the Ulster Division. He was slightly wounded on one occasion and has been practically with the Division throughout all its fighting.

GALLANT BELFAST SOLICITOR.

Mr. Christopher Gordon, son of the Rev. Alex Gordon, formerly minister of 1st Presbyterian Church, Belfast, is at present a patient in the U.V.F. Hospital, Belfast. Mr. Gordon was formerly a practising solicitor in Belfast. About twelve years ago he emigrated to Mexico, and was engaged in the mining industries. At the outbreak of war he returned home to enlist. His many friends will be pleased to know that he is making good progress towards recovery.

FRENCH HONOUR FOR BELFASTMAN.

Corporal Peter Smith, R.A.M.C. 25 Quadrant Street, Belfast, has been awarded the French Legion of Honour, with silver leaves. He was formerly in the employment of Messrs. John Robson, Chichester Street, and his father and two brothers are serving. A French general will present the medal, but the ribbon was presented by a British general, who read out the following details of the deed for which it was awarded:- "For conspicuous gallantry on a motor cycle, under heavy shell fire and in a gassed area, reconnoitring for suitable roads for ambulances, and reporting the location of wounded."

CITY RANK AND FILE.

Mrs. Neeson, 12 M'Cleery Street, Belfast, has been notified that her husband, Sergeant Charles Neeson, Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers (late Connaught Rangers), was killed in action on October 11, 1918.

Mrs. Graham, 19 Kingswood Street, Belfast, has been notified that her husband, Corporal R. Graham, Royal Garrison Artillery, was wounded in action on October 15, 1918. Prior to enlistment he was employed in Messrs. Harland & Wolf's. Private Graham has a brother serving with the Army Service Corps, and he has also been wounded.

Official intimation has just been received by Mr. John Montgomery, Main Street, Conlig, that his youngest son, Lance-Corporal Thomas Montgomery, Royal Irish Fusiliers, late Royal Irish Rifles, has died of wounds in a British Field Ambulance, France. This is the second son he has lost in the war, his brother, Sergeant John Montgomery, M.G.C., Royal Irish Fusiliers, having been killed nine months ago.

BELFAST CITIZEN'S BEREAVEMENT.

News was received in Belfast to-day of the death, from pneumonia, in France of Corporal Bertie M'Creedy, Canadian Forces, son of Mr. John M'Creedy, 132 University Avenue, Belfast.

Our Heroes -- In Memoriam

HARVEY -- In loving memory of my dear husband, Sergt. John J. Harvey, A.S.C. (Baker), who died on the 10th December, 1916, of illness contracted on active service, and was interred in St. Maire Cemetery, France.
Beyond the stars no storms will beat,
No thorns will pierce our weary feet;
No sad good-byes we e'er shall say,
And see our loved one pass away.
Ever remembered by his loving Wife and Children, SUSAN HARVEY, 35 Silvergrove Street.

PHILEMEY -- In sad and loving memory of our dear son, Rifleman Bobbie Philemey, B Company, 10th Batt. Royal Irish Rifles, died of wounds received in action on the 10th December, 1915. Interred in Mailly Mallet Cemetery, France.
He has gone from our gaze like a beautiful dream.
We scarce can believe it -- how strange it doth seem.
We'd give all we have, be it loss, be it gain,
To gaze on the face of our dear son again.
Ever remembered by his sorrowing Father, Mother, Sisters, and Brothers, 3 Little Distillery Street.

PHILEMEY -- In sad and loving memory of my dear cousin, Bobbie, died of wounds on the 10th December, 1915.
Sleep on, dear cousin, in a soldier's grave;
For your King and country a noble life you gave.
Inserted his Cousin. JIM WILLIAMSON, Royal Air Force (on active service).

ULSTER MILITARY NEWS.

BELFAST OFFICER WINS THE M.C. FOR GALLANTRY AT BAKU.

D.C.M. FOR CITY SOLDIER.

Intimation has been received that the Military Cross has been awarded to Lieut. J.L. Craig, 7th Batt. North Staffordshire Regiment, for conspicuous gallantry in the operations against the Turks at Baku, on 26th August. Lieut. Craig is a son of Mr. James Craig, 5 Thorndale Avenue, Belfast. He was wounded on the occasion that he won the decoration, and is now convalescing in India. He has served two years in Mesopotamia, and was one of the cadets of the Queen's University O.T.C. before being appointed to a commission in 1915.

D.C.M. FOR BELFAST MAN.

News has just been received of the award of the Distinguished Conduct Medal to Private T. Rea, Canadian Infantry. The deed for which Private Rea gained the decoration was a particularly gallant and daring one, in which he displayed unusual powers of initiative and resource. On September 28, during the battle for Cambrai, the unit to which Private Rea belongs was held up about 600 yards from its objective by very heavy machine-gun fire. So intense and accurate was the German flow of bullets that it was found impossible to advance, and orders were given for the men to take cover. Meanwhile Private Rea spotted one of the enemy guns and its crew, and, picking up a machine-gun he crawled along until he got behind a small mound of earth, and from this not too advantageous position he blazed away at the enemy and succeeded in routing him. Eventually an officer of the battalion made his way to Rea, and was immediately shot through the head. Another officer then came up, but he also was put out of action, and Private Rea then set about rendering first aid. Seeing that the Germans were so numerous that it would be impossible to move them without the aid of artillery, the resourceful soldier made his way back over very exposed ground, and got an order through to the artillery. Shortly afterwards the Hun was driven out, and the Canadians took their objective. Subsequently this gallant soldier, who is a Belfastman and nephew of Mrs. James Arbuckle, 15 Kingscourt Street, was congratulated on his magnificent conduct by his C. O. and other officers and presented with the ribbon of the D.C.M.

GALLANT GUARDSMAN.

Monday evening's "Gazette" notifies the award of the D.C.M. to 4620 Private R. Tait, 1st Batt. Irish Guards (Limavady, Co. Derry).

For conspicuous gallantry when one of a party was nearly cut off by the enemy. The officer and five men were wounded, and the Lewis gun hit. Private Tait and a sergeant took it in turns to carry the officer and bomb off the enemy rushes. But for the great courage and devotion to duty of this man and the sergeant the wounded would have been captured. As it was, they were safely got back to our lines over open ground swept by machine-gun fire.

30814 Sergt. H. Smyth, 1st Batt. Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, Newtownards, is also awarded the D.C.M. Particulars of his bravery have already been notified in our columns.

DIED IN GERMANY.

Mrs. Dunning, 23 Northland Street, Belfast, has been notified that her son, Private David J. Dunning, 12th Battalion Royal Irish Rifles, who was taken prisoner on March 21, has died from pneumonia in Germany. Private Dunning had four years' service to his credit, and prior to enlistment was employed as a labourer on the Queen's Island. He was a member of the West Belfast U. V. F.

RANK AND FILE LOSSES.

Official news was received on Monday of the death in action on 7th November of Private Samuel Campbell, 1st Battalion East Yorkshire Regiment. Deceased was a son of the late Mr. John Campbell and Mrs. Campbell, 18 Penrose Street, Belfast, and his wife resides at 41 Lindsay Street. He joined the A. S. C. of the Ulster Division in February, 1915, and was afterwards transferred to the East Yorkshire Regiment. He was a plater on the Queen's Island before enlisting.

Private John Davison, 9th Royal Irish Fusiliers, was admitted to the 53rd General Hospital, Boulogne, on the 29th October, suffering from gunshot wound, left ear, received in action on October 25. Previous to joining the colours he was an apprentice rivetter in Messrs. Workman, Clark's. He was one of three brothers serving. Private Hugh Davison, Canadians, and Rifleman Thomas, 2nd Royal Irish Rifles, both making the supreme sacrifice, the former on June 14, 1916, and the latter on March 12, 1915. They are sons of Mr. H. M. Davison (engineering department G. P. O.), 5 Spamount Street, Belfast.

News has reached Mrs. Susan M'Fadden, late of Douglas Bridge, Co. Tyrone, that her husband, Private P. M'Fadden, Royal Innis. Fusiliers, was killed in action on the 7th November. Private M'Fadden had two years' service in France and Egypt. He was a native of Ardstraw.

Private Charles Magill, Seaforth Highlanders, killer in action on 1st November, was a son of Mr. Samuel Magill and Mrs. Magill, 46 Dundela Street, Belfast. He was attached to the 1st Rifle Brigade when he made the supreme sacrifice. Deceased was 19 years of age, and had been three years in the service. His elder brother, William, has been wounded and discharged. Deceased was a grandson of the late Mr. James Magill, Greenisland.

CO. ANTRIM SOLDIER'S RELEASE.

Rifleman William Haughey, 12th Royal Irish Rifles, son of Mr. William Haughey, returned home on Sunday last, having been released from Liege, where he was held a prisoner. Private Haughey, in relating his experiences, stated that he was kept three and four days without food during his captivity, and was made to carry shells for the German artillery. He also stated the Germans released him on the 5th November, six days before the signing of the armistice, and when he left Liege for his tramp to the British lines some kindly Belgians provided him with food and comforts. He will receive a warm welcome from the villagers of Portballintrae and his father who is 88 years of age.

MILITARY FUNERAL IN BELFAST.

The remains of Sergeant-Major A. E. Moring, M. P. S. C., who died on Saturday, were removed this morning from the Victoria Hospital, Belfast, for interment in Dublin. Deceased joined the Royal Berkshire Regiment in 1895, and was rapidly promoted. He served with distinction in the South African War, and on the outbreak of the European War he went to France with his battalion in August, 1914. He saw a good deal of fighting, and held the Mons ribbon and several medals. In May last he was transferred from France to Belfast, and took command of the Detention Barracks, Court Street, a post which he held until his death. Sergeant-Major Moring, who was very popular with his comrades, succumbed to pneumonia. The coffin, which was draped with the Union Jack, was placed on a gun-carriage for conveyance to the Great Northern terminus. A band and party from the Hampshire Regiment escorted the remains. The chief mourners were Mrs. Moring (wife), Lieutenant Moring (brother), and deceased's sister.

BELFAST OFFICER'S GRAVE.

Attention is drawn to a notice elsewhere in this issue asking for information as to the location of the grave of Second-Lieutenant J. Crawford Thompson, 1st Battalion Royal Irish Rifles, who fell in action on 21st March in the St. Quentin retreat. Deceased was in C Company, 9th platoon, and was killed beside Chalk Farm, Haig's Trench, Sereucourt. His parents are anxious to find the last resting-place of their son, and perhaps some of the men of his regiment who fought with him on that day can throw some light on it.

INSURANCE AGENTS' STRIKE.

PROSECUTION AT PORTADOWN.

At Portadown Petty Sessions -- before Mr. D. F. Bell, J. P., and other magistrates -- District-Inspector Tyndall prosecuted Robert J. Hewitt for an offence under the Conspiracy and Protection of Property Act.

Mr. F. J. Anderson, C. S., who appeared to prosecute, said a gentleman named Alexander Church was assistant superintendent of the Refuge Assurance Co., Ltd., and the defendant was assistant superintendent of the Prudential Assurance Co. It appeared that the defendant was on strike at the time. On the 2nd November Alexander Church was collecting premiums for the Refuge Assurance Co. The defendant met him, and, jumping off his bicycle, told him he would collect no premiums that day, that he would go with him and see that. Defendant went with Church to five houses, and in each he told the person who in the ordinary course would have paid the premium not to pay Church, and that he was keeping another man out of a job.

It was stated in evidence that the reason Church was collecting the premiums was because the agents were on strike.

Mr. V. Wilson, who appeared for the defence, examined several of the Refuge Co.'s agents, who stated that while a number of them were with Church in a public-house on the previous Saturday it was arranged that Hewitt should accompany Church on his rounds on the Monday and obstruct him in the manner described.

W. R. Richardson swore that while they were talking about the strike Church said he would be starting to collect on Monday morning and invited Hewitt to "come and do all the harm you can, for I don't care I never collect a penny for the Refuge Assurance Co." It was Church who stood the drink. Church was playing the ball with both hands, and said he was entirely in sympathy with the strikers.

Mr. Wilson contended that Church was a "twister," that it was by arrangement that Hewitt followed him, and that his calling him a blackleg was camouflage to deceive the people. It was a put-up job in the public-house.

Mr. Anderson said if it was a put-up job of course the magistrates would not convict. He was not there to support a put-up job, but the authorities did not consider it a put-up job. This man Church complained to the police immediately afterwards, the whole facts were reported to the Castle, and a prosecution was ordered.

Their Worships fined the defendant 20s and 11s costs.

ENGLISH M. P.'S DIVORCE CASE.

Commander Josiah Wedgwood, M. P. for Newcastle-under-Lyne, was respondent in the Divorce Court to the suit of his wife, Ethel, who claimed a divorce on the usual grounds. Mrs. Wedgwood said she was married in 1894. There were seven children. Last May she secured a decree for restitution of conjugal rights, and it had not been complied with. Evidence was given that respondent stayed with a lady last August.

Mr. Justice Coleridge granted a decree nisi, with costs, and custody of the children.

FREEDOM OF THE SEAS.

BALTIMORE, Monday. -- Speaker Clark, addressing the Southern Commercial Congress to-day, expressed the opinion that President Wilson could be relied upon to secure the freedom of the seas at the Peace Conference.

He declared that the American foreign trade must be greatly expanded if the prosperity of the United States is to be increased or even maintained. "We fought the Central Powers to obtain the freedom of the seas. That's the chief reason why we entered the war," he added. -- Central News.

NEARING POLLING DAY.

ACTIVITY IN BELFAST.

VIEWS OF OUR READERS.

With the approach of polling day election activity becomes more apparent in Belfast. Canvassers are hard at work all over the city, candidates, in public halls and at street corners, are addressing the electors with a vehemence that does not diminish as Saturday draws near, while the Sub-Sheriff is steadily completing the arrangements for the biggest election task that has yet devolved upon him. The most important of the outstanding meetings is that fixed for to-morrow evening in the Ulster Hall, at which Sir Edward Carson and a number of the other candidates in the city will speak. There has been a great demand for tickets, and those who intend to be present would do well to come early. The doors will be opened at 6.30 p.m., from which hour there will be an organ recital.

LETTER FROM SIR E. CARSON.

Sir Edward Carson, in a letter to the Press, says:--

May I draw the serious attention of the Unionist voters in the various divisions of Belfast to the advice given yesterday by the Roman Catholic Bishop of Down, that "all Nationalists should vote against the Carson candidates."

Every vote should be given to the officially-selected Unionist candidate, in order to defeat the efforts of the Most Reverend Bishop to weaken the Ulster position.

I greatly deplore the dissension amongst Unionists in the Ormeau and St. Anne's Divisions, but, in view of the Bishop's action, I rely upon the electors to close up their ranks, and in Ormeau to support Mr. Moles, and in St. Anne's to support Mr. Burn. -- Yours faithfully,
                EDWARD CARSON.

BISHOP MACRORY'S ADVICE.

"No Surrender" writes:-- In view of the Roman Catholic Bishop's pronouncement on Sunday for every Nationalist to vote "against the Carsonite candidate," it behoves every Protestant worthy of the name to record his and her vote in favour of that candidate. The Roman Catholics will all vote against, therefore every Protestant must vote for Sir Edward Carson's supporter. Let there be no apathy. The spectacle of the R. C. Bishops making their flocks toe the line, and taking such a prominent part in the election, shows us, if we did not know before, how the land lies. They are all united against the "common enemy," meaning the Protestants. Therefore, let the "common enemy" answer the insolent challenge by returning the Carsonite candidate triumphant everywhere. Never was there a man who did more for a people than Sir Edward Carson for Ulster. He saved us from the degradation of Home Rule and Rome Rule at a time when we were surrounded by traitors and enemies and had scarcely a friend to champion our cause. Some people have forgotten the debt we owe our leader in a very short time. Such factionists, who are trying to betray us now, should be quickly sent about their business, and taught that the loyal followers of an honourable and trusted leader will have none of them. Sir Edward never lead us astray yet, and we will trust him "to the death." Protestants, unite; sink all petty differences and show our enemies -- Nationalists, Sinn Feiners, and R.C. priests and bishops -- that our rallying cry is still the same as that of our gallant lads at the Somme on the memorable 1st July -- "No Surrender!"

THE ORMEAU CONTEST.

Mr. Samuel Leighton, 340 Ravenhill Road, Belfast, writes:-- It is very regrettable there should be any disunion amongst the Unionists of Ormeau. There is one argument which should decide the issue as between Mr. Stewart and Mr. Moles. Sir Edward Carson is our trusted leader, and we own him every allegiance and support for the invaluable services he has rendered to our cause. If that be so, then we should recognise his right to select the men whom he wishes to lead in the House of Commons.

He wants Mr. Moles, and his wishes should be respected. If Ormeau is true to him it should not allow itself to be side-tracked into any other position.

For this reason, and putting aside every other consideration, I hope Ormeau will honour itself by honouring the wishes of Sir Edward Carson.

"GOD HELP IRELAND."

SAYS A TIPPERARY PRIEST.

SINN FEIN AND "DAMNED SOULS."

There were stormy scenes at a meeting in the Tipperary Town Hall on Sunday afternoon in support of Mr. Cullinan, the Irish Nationalist Parliamentary candidate, and Monsignor Ryan, who presided, was interrupted during the greater part of his speech.

Monsignor Ryan, in his opening remarks, referred in indignant terms to a description given of him at a recent Sinn Fein meeting in Tipperary as "a political blasphemer, and a man who owing to his early teaching, had never learned to love his country, and should never dabble in politics." It surely was not "political blasphemy" to declare his loyalty to Parnell and Davitt.

A DEFENCE OF THE IRISH SOLDIER.

Continuing, Monsignor Ryan said -- I suppose I will be told as they were told in Dublin, that the men who fought for liberty abroad were "damned souls"; but if I am to suffer damnation -- and I say it with all reverence -- I will choose those men to be my companions, and I say that the men who died on the plains of Flanders and France were as good Irishmen as ever drew breath. (Loud applause.) They shed their blood in the cause of liberty.

At this there were angry interruptions from the same direction of the audience and Monsignor Ryan, raising his voice above the din, said -"If I am to be damned, I will be damned with Willie Redmond and Tom Kettle!" I decline to apologise for bringing in these personal matters.

Many years ago I was invited to Dublin Castle, and I showed the invitation to Archbishop Croker and my answer to it. I said to the person who invited me that if I went to Dublin Castle I should never be able to return to Tipperary.

A Voice -- "What answer did you make in Easter week when you offered the services of the National Volunteers to the British Government?"

Monsignor Ryan -- That is a deliberate lie.

Loud applause and interruptions followed. A man at the back was seized upon and was about to be thrust through a window, from which he would have got a dangerous fall; when a policeman pulled him back, and he was removed from the gallery. The uproar became general, and Monsignor Ryan found it impossible to make himself heard.

Mr. Cullinan came to the front of the platform, and shouted -- "It's a lie to say that the services of the National Volunteers were offered to the Government to shoot down their fellow-countrymen in Easter week, and the men who say it are convicted liars."

The uproar now became worse than ever, and eventually a move was made to eject the interrupters. A number of ladies at the front, dreading violence in their vicinity, got on to the platform for safety. In the general turmoil chairs were raised. Mr. David Sheehy jumped off the platform and joined in ejecting the interrupters, who then left, and after a brief scuffle on the stairs quiet was restored and maintained to the end of the meeting.

Monsignor Ryan -- I think we have seen what Sinn Fein means. If this is liberty of speech, and if this is the liberty we are promised in Ireland, then all I can say is, God help Ireland!

The "Irish News," which is understood particularly to voice the views of Mr. Devln [sic], says to-day:--

Does Father O'Flanagan lend his imprimatur to the following manifesto published by the Sinn Fein Executive:

"In this election will you vote for the faith of Tone, Davitt, and Parnell? Or

"Will you vote for that of Arthur Lynch, Stephen Gwynn, W. Arthur Redmond, T. L. Esmond -- all of the English Army? As you decide, so shall it be recorded for you. You can have community with Ireland's heroic dead on the one hand, or with THE DAMNED SOULS of those others, from M'Murragh downwards, on the other." [The only comment it is necessary to make on the above is that the Nationalist party does not hesitate to avail itself of the aid of these individuals in Derry City, East Down, and Tyrone, and that Mr. Smillie (President of the Miners' Federation), for the Labour party, looks forward to obtaining their assistance in Parliament.]

BELFAST EMPIRE.

Miss May Connolly, the Irish soprano, was given a hearty reception at the Belfast Empire last evening, her rendering of "The Irish Emigrant," "Come Back to Erin," and "Mary of Argyle" being thoroughly appreciated. Desmond Crean proved a very entertaining character impersonator. Cooper and Baines are a couple of mirth-provoking artistes; while Jock Costelloe proved himself a very clever dancer, his performance on a wire rope being specially interesting. Other enjoyable contributions were given by Jock Trueman, baritone; Miss Mollie Kemp, soprano; the Aranneys, comedy acrobats; and Leo Barry, comedian and dancer.

BELFAST HIPPODROME.

The large crowds attending the Royal Hippodrome on Monday evening thoroughly enjoyed the top-notch programme presented. "The Absent-Minded Husband" is a delightful little sketch, submitted by Miss Louie Pounds, which keeps the house rocking with mirth from start to finish. There is nothing "heavy" about the sketch, but fun-making opportunities are made the most of by a talented actress, who is assisted by Mr. Leslie N. Clare and Miss Nora Wadeley. "Jerry and Company, Builders," were given a cordial reception on their return visit to Belfast. Other enjoyable items were... [article continued].

Far away from all who loved him
Soldiers gently laid him to rest;
In a hero's grave he is sleeping,
One of God's brightest and best.
When last we saw him smiling
He looked so strong and brave;
He never thought how soon he would be
Laid in a hero's grave.

On behalf of our Committee we beg most thankfully to acknowledge the above subscriptions.

In accordance with instructions received from the Central Prisoners of War Committee the despatch of parcels to our Prisoners of War was discontinued subsequent to the signing of the Armistice.

Considerable uncertainty exists as to the sums which our Collectors and Helpers may have in hand for the benefit of our Fund, as well as to the marketable value of our stocks of Food-stuffs and other commodities, but as there is reason to hope that our Assets (inclusive of sums still to be handed in or held on deposit for us) will be sufficient to meet our liabilities, we do not propose in the meantime making any further appeals for funds.

We shall, of course, be glad to receive all sums already in hand and all subscriptions due.

Subscriptions received subsequent to 31st October will be acknowledged in the Press as soon as a list can be prepared.

We beg to make this an opportunity of tendering our most grateful thanks to all those who have supported the Ulster Women's Gift Fund so generously during the period of the War.

THE FOOTBALL FIELD.

ADDRESS TO CONSTITUENTS.
RECONSTRUCTION AND REFORM.
(By WANDERER.)

We are now in the midst of the election whirl, and it is but meet that I should take the earliest opportunity of reiterating the beliefs I hold and the interests I represent in the world of sport. I have been before the football public as "Wanderer" for upwards of a quarter of a century, and during that period I have striven -- and I may claim without egotism that my efforts have not been unrewarded -- to establish Junior football on its rightful pedestal amongst the games of the nation.

We have now entered on a new era. The war, with its calamitous consequences, is over, and the advent of peace suggests, in sport as in politics, a programme of reconstruction to which we can apply all our energies and all our propagandist activity. During the four seasons of war our only aim has been to keep the game alive until the boys should return. It was a responsible undertaking, and one not immune from difficulties. The authorities have managed to keep the various Leagues, Alliances, and Combinations afloat, and good luck to them for the splendid success they achieved in the adverse circumstances.

There is no doubt that the war has materially affected the prestige and playing strength of our competitions, and it behoves those in power to reorganise. During the past few years a large number of unattached football clubs have sprung into being in many parts of the city. This irregular traffic in sport is manifestly undesirable, and has been the means of creating much annoyance in affiliated football.

A reconstruction scheme was adopted through the agency of Mr. George Steed and his friends last season, when over 50 unattached clubs were affiliated to the Irish Football Association; and to the credit of the promoters be it said, they achieved something for the benefit of the rising generation. However, every sanction is due to the fundamental principle underlying the formation of the Minor League, and the understanding that the clubs would advance into a higher stage at the opening of the succeeding season offered great promise; but this has not so far been a great success, as only a few of the clubs were ambitious for a higher sphere. It is to be hoped that there will be a more marked disposition on the part of the clubs to do so in the future, and that as a result of their enterprise the Alliance and the Combination will be enabled to sustain their playing strength at a level which will add to the influence of Junior football.

It is not my intention to take up space relative to the action of the I.F.A. in allowing the Referees' Committee to increase the fees of the referees in Junior Cup ties. I strongly advocate that a change in the constitution of the committee is most desirable, and I would advise that the Juniors should be represented on the committee, to deal with similar cases that may arise in the future.

I am also strongly in favour of the Juniors managing the Irish Junior Cup competition. As the rule stands, the I.F.A. send down four members of the Senior Council to watch over the deliberations of the committee. This is not as it ought to be. If the Association has confidence in the ability of those who have been all their lives working amongst the Juniors to conduct the competition, surely there is no necessity for members of the Seniors to participate in the management. I contend that this is a hindrance to the prosperity of the Junior Cup, as compared with the success of the Steel & Sons Cup, which is managed entirely by Juniors from the County Antrim Association.

On the question of shorter working hours, I am strongly in favour of reform in this direction, more especially as the democratic tendency of the age is towards trade unionism. Furthermore, at this period of the football season, a game of one hour's duration seems quite ample with an early kick-off, and in view of the restricted period of daylight. This measure has been adopted across the Channel, and proved quite satisfactory.

I am a firm and convinced believer in the maintenance of the union between Ireland and Great Britain by the promotion of International contests. During the past four seasons of the war, football has undoubtedly been maintained with difficulties, and the absence of sporting rivalry and social intercourse

WORK AT THE PLOTS.

POINTS TO REMEMBER.
THE BENEFITS OF FROST.

(By the Editor of the "Smallholder.")

At this time of the year all work upon a garden or an allotment is dependent upon the weather. If it happens to be wet and snowy there is nothing for it, of course, but to keep off the ground altogether. Trampling upon the soil under such conditions only tends to make it more sodden; and further, ground dug under wet conditions never works down to a fine tilth.

But if the ground is hard and frost bound, you have a chance to do much important work. Our plan is always to wheel out manures under frosty conditions, as then not only is the work easily performed but there is no cutting up of the walks or the ground by the wheels of the barrow.

Under dry and frosty conditions, too, one can push on with all speed any digging that has to be done, for the sooner all vacant plots are turned up to weather, the better.

Pea and bean sticks should also be prepared now, instead of waiting until the plants require support. The trimming of these should be done with the aid of a sharp bill-hook and a block on which to shape the ends. We always trim ours in fan shape, placing the long sticks together and the short ones by themselves and then tying each kind up into nice light bundles. Both the pea and bean sticks keep better when stacked together upright.

Where broad bean and pea crops were sown as advised, the young seedlings will be showing above ground and a little soil should be drawn up on each side of the row to protect them from cutting winds. It is advisable to do this on a dry day, forming a slight ridge about two inches high, close up to the plants without covering them. At the same time apply a light dusting of soot to keep away slugs or other pests.

Parsnips are also needing attention. For one thing, be sure to clear off the tops that have dried down, and also any other decaying matter, so as to allow air full access to the roots. In addition it will be well to dig up one half of the crops and store the roots in sand or fine ashes in a sellar or shed. The other half can then be left in the ground until required.

Jerusalem Artichokes should be treated the same as parsnips. Every little piece of tuber must, however, be dug out of the ground, for if left behind these small pieces grow and become a nuisance next season.

MURDER OF DAUGHTER-IN-LAW.

FINISH OF CARLOW TRIAL.

DEATH SENTENCE ON MRS. PURSER.

The concluding stages in the Carlow murder trial were reached at the Leinster Assizes in Dublin on Thursday evening, when Thomasina Purser was found guilty of the murder of her daughter-in-law, Annie Purser, at Castletown, on October 30.

After an absence of about ten minutes the jury returned with their verdict, the foreman intimating that they were of opinion that there should be a strong recommendation to mercy.

Mr. Justice Pim said the recommendation would be sent forward at once to the proper quarter. His Lordship, assuming the black cap, then sentenced the prisoner to be executed on January 8.

The Crown contended that accused and her son Richard (deceased's husband) placed a bed-tick over deceased's head while she was ill, and lay on it until she was smothered. Accused's son was found guilty and sentenced to death for the offence on Tuesday.

Professor M'Weeney, who had made a post-mortem examination of deceased stated that he found distinct traces of arsenic in the stomach, but the quantity present would not be equal to a full medium dose. The condition of the organs pointed to death by suffocation.

The case for the prosecution having closed, Mr. J.B. Sealy, K.C., addressing the jury for the prisoner, said that the only explanation of the crime was insanity. Their defence was that this woman was a religious maniac from youth upwards, and that this religious mania developed into a form of impulsive insanity. Her mind was unduly devoted to religion; her thoughts were of nothing but death, and after she had undergone a serious operation this morbidity and depression increased. Her solitary life and her confessions of the crime pointed to insanity.

The accused's sisters gave evidence as to insanity in the family, showing that several of its members were of unsound mind, one having been in the Carlow Lunatic Asylum.

One of the sisters said that the prisoner was in the habit of writing religious poems -- one in particular after her mother's death, when she commenced to brood a lot and wander about by herself.

The Attorney-General then read a few lines from the poem referred to, as follow:--

"Ah, mother, mother, must we part
In this, the silent hour,
And no one near thee now but me
To soothe my mother's brow.
"Oh, must I stand beside this bed
In sorrow and in tears,
To lay my hand upon thy brow,
And see the last dear breath."

Mr. Justice Pim -- I think you need not go any further.

Mr. James Twamly, who was married to a sister of the prisoner, in answer to Mr. Sealy, KC., said he always regarded the accused as insane. He knew her for thirty years, and she never entered into a conversation with him, even when she was staying in the house. She never associated with people.

Mr. Justice Pim -- I know some of the sanest people who do things like that. (Laughter.)

RECTOR GIVES EVIDENCE

Rev. W.G. Willis, rector of Staplestown, said the accused was a parishioner of his. She was a puzzle to him, and he made a study of her. She never seemed to enter into the life of the place, and she seemed dazed. In speaking about religion he often wondered was she a hypocrite, but he was sure she was not. He would rather call her a fanatic. When her husband died her melancholy increased, and she talked of how soon she would be dead herself.

Answering the Attorney-General, witness said accused was a member of the Church of Ireland, and attended regularly. Her mind seemed to dwell on the other world. It was difficult to say if she was capable of distinguishing between right and wrong.

Dr. William Morris, Waterford Prison, and proprietor of a private asylum, said in his opinion when the woman committed the crime of which she was accused she did not know the difference between right and wrong.

The Attorney-General asked witness when he arrived at that conclusion?

Witness -- When I heard all the evidence given in the case.

Did you give a certificate on her leaving the prison that "I did not observe any symptom of insanity?" -- Yes.

MEDICAL KNIGHT AS WITNESS.

Sir Thomas Myles, who saw the prisoner at Mountjoy Prison, said the had arrived at the conclusion that she was incoherent in language and thought, had a defective memory on fundamental matters, and that the crime appeared to him to have been, as far as she was concerned, a case of "impulsive insanity."

Mr. Justice Pim -- You are putting forward this, that the woman was acting under uncontrollable influence and not realising that it was wrong? -- Yes.

This concluded the defence.

Accused, when asked if she had anything to say before sentence was passed, replied:-- "Can I go to my sister?"

"SHOOT ALL DOWN."

FEROCIOUS GERMAN ORDERS.

SOUGHT TO CRUSH REVOLUTION.

There has come into the possession of the Berlin correspondent of a Dutch paper a military document that reveals for the first time a desperate attempt made by the military authorities at Berlin to kill the German Revolution (telegraphs the London "Daily Telegraph" special correspondent at Rotterdam). It appears that the main efforts were directed to prevent the revolting sailors from Kiel and Hamburg reaching Berlin.

The history of the event and the copy of these orders, which the correspondent describes as the most gruesome of the war, is as follows:-

On November 5 a lieutenant, with 27 men and two machine-guns, was sent to Neustadt, with orders to hold up all trains from Hamburg and Kiel and send back the soldiers and sailors travelling. When the lieutenant arrived at Neustadt, however, he was told by the station guard that a new order had been received that the men in the train had leave passes, and must be allowed to proceed. The lieutenant acted accordingly, but the next day an order came from the Berlin Command that the original instructions must be obeyed. The officer obtained reinforcements and mounted machine-guns in the station windows. A train arrived, but the officer was informed that it contained a number of women and children as well as sailors. He persuaded the sailors, who were desperately hungry, to return to Hamburg after he had provided them with food.

In the evening, however, events took a different turn for there arrived at the station a reinforcement of 120 soldiers with no fewer than fourteen machine-guns. Just as they arrived the lieutenant in command received the following message from Berlin:-"Train is coming from direction of Wittenburg with mutineers; derail the train immediately; shoot upon it from all sides with machine-guns and whatever other weapons you have; you must continue firing until there is no sign of life in the train; it is a fight for life and death."

Accordingly machine-guns were mounted on all buildings on the approach to the station, and even on the roof, and soldiers were posted ready for action. Then came to the officer the stationmaster, wringing his hands, saying that also in the train were large numbers of women and children. The train was stopped just outside the station. It was there until dawn when the soldiers, sailors, and workmen marched from it and saw themselves faced by machine-guns on all directions.

There was a panic, and eventually two sailors restored calm, while the lieutenant explained his orders that the train must not pass. In the evening, however, they re-entered the train, which resumed its journey. Shortly afterwards came a rebuke from Berlin to the officer for having "negotiated with the mutineers," and with fresh orders that "a new train with mutineers is on the way. Regardless of all who may be in it, this train must be derailed, and everybody in it mercilessly shot down."

The officer, on receiving this barbaric command, collapsed, and had to be carried away unconscious. There was nobody among the military on the spot to undertake to carry out the orders, and so the train passed through, uninterrupted, to Berlin.

SHIPPING CASUALTIES

Lloyd's Havana correspondent telegraphs the Dutch schooner Soogezand l., from Casilda for Key West, stranded at Cape San Antonio.

Gravesend telegraphs the British steamers, Rudmore, outward bound, and Crown of Galicia, from the Tyne, collided yesterday evening off Purfleet. The former vessel foundered, but the crew were saved, and the latter proceeded to West India Dock, with extensive damage to her bows.

WHIST DRIVE AT WHITEHEAD.

The whist drive organised by Mrs. W. M'C. Martin and Miss Aherne for the entertainment of convalescent soldiers resident in King's Road Home, Whitehead, and held last evening, proved as enjoyable as the previous "drives." There was a large attendance of visitors, and after a series of closely-contested games the highest scores were returned by Privates Collins, Jackson, and Heaney, while the lady's prize was awarded Mrs. Nethery. The prizes were gracefully presented by Mrs. Stagg.

The British hospital ship Formosa has returned to Copenhagen from Stettin with wounded and sick prisoners of war on board. After coaling the Formosa will continue her voyage to England. One of the wounded died on the voyage.

SWIMMING IN BELFAST.

KEEN CHAMPIONSHIP RACE.

East End Amateur Swimming Club has long been recognised as an enterprising organisation, but the monster Victory gala held on Wednesday evening in Templemore Baths, under its auspices, may be said to have hall-marked and stamped that reputation. Councillor A. Atkinson presided, and there was a large attendance of citizens, whose appreciation of an excellent entertainment was enthusiastically demonstrated.

The principal attraction on the programme was the 50 yards' Ulster Ladies Championship race, in which the successful competitor proved to be Miss Maude Craig, of Donegall A.S. Club, Mrs. D. Scott (Victoria) gaining second position, and Miss L. Craig, sister and club-mate of the new champion, coming home third. The time for the final was 43 2-5secs. The championship race caused the most intense excitement, the struggle for supremacy being particularly keen. Miss Marion Carson (Belfast Amateurs), last year's holder of the title, made a plucky effort, but her recent illness, combined with the fact that she had not been able properly to train, was against her, and she was defeated in the fastest heat (43secs.) by Miss Maud Craig.

The 50 yards' Co. Down Ladies' Championship was won by Mrs. D. Scott (Victoria) in 54secs. Prior to this race it was intimated that a protest had been lodged against Mrs. Scott's entry. It being contended that the contest was only open to Templemore clubs. Miss P. Ferguson touched 2nd, and Miss L. Robb 3rd.

A keenly-played water polo match between sides representing East End and Victoria was thoroughly enjoyed by spectators, and resulted in a scoreless draw. The East Enders in true sporting spirit afterwards handed over the polo prizes to the visitors.

The results of the other races were as follows:

Two Lengths' Learners' Race (club) -- Miss F. Allen, 1st; Miss M. Watson (scratch), 2nd; Miss A. Kelso, 3rd.

Two Lengths' Handicap for Lady President's Challenge Cup -- Miss L. Robb, 1st; Miss A. Calderwood, 2nd; Miss B. Calderwood, 3rd.

Three Lengths' Novice Handicap -- E. M'Keown (Donegall), 1st; R. Greer (East End), 2nd; J. Munro (Victoria): scratch man, 3rd. An excellent race Munro's performance being specially praiseworthy.

Four Lengths' Open Handicap -- J. Bell (Victoria), 1st; George T.Corry (Donegall), 2nd; and J.J. Smyth (Belfast Amateurs), 3rd. Time, 63secs.

Two Lengths' Handicap, for boys under 15 years -- J. Greer, 1st; F. R. Wilson (scr.), 2nd; and -- Martin, 3rd.

The gala officials were:-M. C., Mr. William C. Cheater, I.A.S.A.; starter and timekeeper, Mr. W. E. Morris, I.A.S.A.; check starter and timekeeper, Mr. H. Lemon, I.A.S.A.; judges, Messrs J. M. Caughey, P. M'Faul, E. E. Storey, and J S. Donaldson, U.D.I.A.S.A.; race referee, Mr. R. Gamble, U.D.I.A.S.A.; hon. handicapper, Mr. Wm. C. Cheater, I.A.S.A. ; competitions steward, Messrs. J. Coey, D. Lockhart, R. W. Allen, and R. B. Kelly, East End; ladies' stewards, Mrs. Allen, Mrs. M'Callum, and Mrs Armstrong, East End Ladies; polo referee, Mr. M. E. Morris, I.A.S.A.

Mr. Joseph Pollock proved an energetic and capable gala secretary, and was ably assisted by the committee of ladies and gents.

Subsequently the joint committees of East End Club entertained a large company of visitors and friends to tea, amongst those present being councillors J. A. Duff, J.P. (president of the club), and A. Atkinson. Dancing and games were later indulged in, and the following contributed to an enjoyable musical programme:- Miss P. Cheater, Miss A. Reid, Councillor Duff, Messrs. W. E. Morris, Jacob Carson, Alexander S. M'Dowell, Robert Ferguson, Wm. Cheater, and Master Cheater.

The thanks of the visitors were expressed by Messrs. Morris, H. Lemon, H. Megarry, and J. M. Caughey, all of whom made complimentary reference to the East Enders' enterprise, and voiced the hope that other clubs would follow the excellent lead thus set, making a social evening a feature of their gatherings in future, a sentiment which was enthusiastically applauded by the swimmers present.

Councillor Duff expressed the pleasure he felt at being present that evening. He was always happy, he said, when in the midst of his swimming friends, and he joined in the hope that these social gatherings would become more general. (Applause.)

Votes of thanks having been passed to the artistes, to the tea-makers and stewards, and to Mr. H. Smyth, superintendent of the baths, who had enthusiastically facilitated the committee in their arrangements, the proceedings were brought to a close with the singing of the National Anthem.

COUNTY OF ANTRIM.

MIDWIVES (IRELAND) ACT, 1918

(7 and 8 GEO. 5. C. 59)

NOTICE TO MIDWIVES.

THE COUNTY COUNCIL OF THE COUNTY OF ANTRIM, as the Local Supervising Authority under the Midwives (Ireland) Act, 1918, desire to draw attention to the principal provisions of the Act which materially affect the legal position of all Midwives: --

1. After the 1st January, 1919, no woman may take or use the name or title of Midwife, or any name or description implying that she is specially qualified to practise midwifery, unless she is certified as the Act provides.

2. Any woman who before the 6th February, 1920, claims to be certified under the Act may be so certified:
(a) If she holds a certificate in Midwifery from the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland or from any lying-in Hospital recognised as a Training School for Midwives by the Local Government Board for Ireland*; or
(b) If she is or has been a permanent Midwife of a workhouse or dispensary district in Ireland; or
(c) If she is certified under the Midwives Act, 1902, or the Midwives (Scotland) Act, 1915, or under Part VIII of the Belfast Corporation Act, 1911; or
(d) If she satisfies the Central Midwives' Board for Ireland that she has been in bona-fide practice as a midwife for at least one year prior to the 6th February, 1918, and that she bears a good character.

3. A woman not included within one of these classes will be required to pass the examination of the Central Midwives' Board for Ireland before obtaining a Certificate.

4. Application to be certified must be made to the Central Midwives' Board for Ireland in accordance with the rules and regulations to be prescribed by the Board, and such fees will be payable for certification as the Privy Council may sanction.

5. The names of all certified Midwives will be entered on the Midwives Roll for Ireland.

6. Every certified midwife must before commencing to practise or holding herself out as practising, in any district, give notice, in writing, to the Local Supervising Authority (i.e., the Council of the County or County Borough as the case may be) of her intention so to do, and of her address, and must give a similar notice in the month of January in every year during which she continues to practise in such district. Any change of address must likewise be notified to the Local Supervising Authority within three days after such change.

7. No certified Midwife may employ an uncertified person as her substitute.

8. A midwife may be suspended from practice in order to prevent the spread of infectious disease, or may be removed from the roll for disobeying the rules and regulations of the Central Midwives' Board for Ireland, or for other misconduct.

9. Penalties are prescribed for any infringement of the foregoing provisions, 1 and 6; also, for procuring, or attempting to procure, a certificate by false representation.

10. An appeal lies to the High Court of Justice or to the Local Government Board for Ireland from any decision of the Central Midwives' Board removing a midwife's name from the Roll.

11. Applications for enrolment (which must be prepaid) should be addressed to:--
THE SECRETARY
Central Midwives' Board for Ireland,
Custom House, Dublin.
ALEXANDER MILLAR, Secretary.
13th December, 1918.

*The following Institutions have been recognised by the Local Government Board for Ireland as Training Schools for Midwives:--

BELFAST CATHEDRAL.

ENLARGEMENT OF BUILDING.

A THANK-OFFERING FOR VICTORY AND A MEMORIAL OF THE FALLEN.

AS ANNOUNCED BY THE BISHOP OF THE DIOCESE, at the recent meeting of the Diocesan Synod, the Board have decided to proceed, as soon as possible, with the building of another section of the Cathedral.

The great Nave, the only part of the Building as yet erected, is proving too small for the congregations which flock to it on all special occasions. More space is urgently required.

It is proposed to make this work a Monument of Victory and a Memorial of those heroic members of our Community to whose service and sacrifice that Victory is due. There could be no more fitting expression of our gratitude to Almighty God, and no more permanent witness of the Faith which carried our Nation through to Victory.

The Cathedral will also afford almost unlimited opportunities for personal memorials: Windows, Arches, Pillars, etc., can be appropriated as special gifts and connected with the names of those who have fallen in the war, or with regiments, war-industries, or other units which have rendered signal service. Our glorious Ulster Division should be especially commemorated.

The Building of the Central Crossing and the two Transepts would double the seating accommodation of the Cathedral, and provide ample space for all great services. This extension would also so far realise the design of the whole as to make the grandeur of its proportions evident. Under present conditions the general effect of the architectural conception is almost entirely unrealised.

The estimated cost of this work at present prices would be £53,000, but as the Board hold considerable sums of money to the credit of the Building Fund and several Legacies not yet fully realised, amounting altogether to £18,000, or perhaps even £20,000, the total required would be at the utmost, £35,000.

The Board earnestly hope that the proposal which they now place before the public will receive the support which they feel it deserves. They trust that our Cathedral may stand in ages to come as a monument of the great deliverance God has granted to our Empire and to the world, and a record of the glorious deeds of the men of Belfast and Ulster.

Subscriptions may be paid to the Honorary Treasurers, addressed to the Belfast Bank, Waring Street, Belfast.

ASTUTE BUSINESS.

30,000 SUITS OF CLOTHES HOARDED.

ZURICH, Tuesday. -- The officials of the new Bavarian Government have discovered in the Munich warehouses of a clothing dealer, named Isidor Bach, no fewer than 30,000 suits and costumes, which had been collected and carefully hoarded by Bach since the commencement of the war in 1914. In one department were 300 peasants' suits, which Bach had specially put aside to be sold only in exchange for food. The whole of this immense hoard of clothing was seized, and Bach is to be prosecuted. -- Central News.

General Ma An-liang, the Moslem leader in Kansu, is dead. He was responsible for order among the Mohammedans in Chinese territory. A mandate pays a tribute to his services, appropriates $5,000 for his funeral expenses, and orders a high official to offer sacrifices.

LONDON STOCK EXCHANGE.

TUESDAY, 11 a.m. -- A cable to the "India Rubber Journal" says that the American restrictions upon the imports of rubber have been withdrawn and that maximum prices and allocation regulations have been removed. This was not known in the rubber share market yesterday.

The November rand output is the lowest since February, 1914, whilst the number of labourers employed -- 160,000 -- compares with over 200,000 two years ago.

It is rumoured on the Metal Exchange that the Government control of non-ferrous metals will be removed in a few days. The sales of tin yesterday were the largest for a long time. The "Financier" calls attention to the bright prospect of electrical undertakings, and says that optimists are going for a small distribution on Ediswan A. shares.

2.30 p.m. -- The stock market continues under the influence of the approaching holidays, and the volume of business in progress, already small, tends to become more and more restricted. In the absence of selling, however, a fairly steady tone is maintained, and prices, as a rule, are fluctuating narrowly.

Government stocks are again without change, and except for moderate activity in French Fives there is little of interest. Foreigners and Home Rails are inclined to dullness, and changes are unimportant. Argentines are again meeting with quiet support.

Industrials continue quiet, and features of interest are few. Dorman Longs are a good market on the pending issue of shares at par, and Aerated Breads are in request.

Rubbers are firmer on the removal of the American import restrictions.

Oils are mostly firm, with Shells again in demand.

Mines are idle and uninteresting.

COTTON STRIKE AT AN END.

DECISION OF THE OPERATIVES.

The Exchange Telegraph Company states that the operative cotton spinners and carders at a meeting in Manchester approved of the terms of the settlement of the strike negotiated by the Premier. The operatives will get a 50 per cent. advance on list prices, which is within 10 per cent.of their full claim.

LARNE HOTEL COOK'S LOSS.

HAD £128 IN DRAWER -- £21 MISSING.

At a special court in Larne to-day, before Mr. Charles O'Boyle, J.P., a woman named Annie Mulrooney, alias Mary A. Scanlon, was charged by District-Inspector Moore, with the theft in June last of £21 from a fellow-servant at the Olderfleet Hotel, Larne Harbour, where she had been employed.

From the evidence it appeared that Annie Flynn, cook at the hotel, had a sum of £128 in a drawer in her bedroom. On 10th June last when she went to her drawer she found that the lock had been broken and the £21 missing. Accused left the hotel for Scotland on 13th of the same month without receiving her money. She had got a new hat, coat, and other articles of clothing.

Evidence was given as to the accused having bought the articles and paying for them with a £5 Bank of Ireland note. She got a receipt (produced) but the date had been changed on it.

Evidence of arrest in Scotland having been given, accused was remanded till next petty sessions.

THE AMERICA CUP.

CONDITION OF DEFENDING YACHT.

A Boston, U.S.A.. wireless message states:- The sloop Resolute, picked up to defend the America Cup against Sir Thomas Lipton's Shamrock IV, in 1914, is still in a condition to race the latest challenger. The yacht has been housed at New Rochelle since the war caused the abandonment of the 1914 race.

NATIONAL SPORTING CLUB.

MR. BETTINSON'S BENEFIT.

The last entertainment of the year at the National Sporting Club, London, was as usual given to Mr. A.S. Bettinson, the manager, for his benefit. A full and well-arranged programme, in which the comic side of boxing found a place, was provided. The club theatre was crowded in every part.

In the course of a speech, in which he expressed his thanks for the kindness extended to him. Mr. Bettinson said the club was numerically stronger than ever, and that boxing stood in a better position than at any previous time.

The chief feature of the evening was a fifteen-round contest between the American, "Gene" Delmont and "Donny" Morgan, of Firpil, who were matched at 9 st. 6 lbs. Both men made the weight at the scales in the afternoon. Morgan boxed uncommonly well from the start, and soon ran up a long lead. Delmont, who relied largely on in-fighting, was told four or five times not to hold. In the ninth round Delmont asserted himself, and got home some hard punches. However, it was only a spurt. Morgan went further and further ahead, and at the end of fifteen rounds won on points, with a lot in hand. Delmont showed great pluck, and must have been very fit to take so much punishment and last so well, but he was overmatched.

ARMAGH STABBING AFFAIR.

EX-SOLDIER DIES FROM INJURIES.

On Saturday night a very serious stabbing affray took place in Scotch Street, Armagh, as a result of which a young discharged soldier named John M'Fadden, a native of Coleraine, died on Monday night in the county infirmary. It appears that he and another soldier named John Murray, of Letterkenny, were drinking together in a public-house when an argument ensued between them as to the merits and demerits of Sir Edward Carson, the late Mr. John Redmond, and Liam O'Brien, the Sinn Fein candidate for Mid-Armagh. The words ended in blows, but eventually the men were separated. Subsequently they again met in Scotch Street, and it is alleged that Murray draw a knife which he had recently purchased and stabbed M'Fadden underneath the heart. The wound was very severe, and M'Fadden was conveyed to the county infirmary, where he became unconscious. He was attended by Surgeon Palmer [article continued]

LONDON STOCK EXCHANGE.

MONDAY, 11 a.m. -- Following the formation in America of a Copper Export Association comes news of a Northern Steel Produce Association to comprise all important companies outside the Steel Corporation, and a Chemical Export Association is mooted. Meanwhile, says a "Daily Telegraph" cable, it will not be a joyous Christmas in Wall Street. Owing to the Government desire to control the railway system for five years the dividend payers have dropped 10 points since the cessation of hostilities. It is believed, says another correspondent, that if the Government plan is defeated the roads may be returned immediately to the owners, and that not a dozen roads will be able to keep out of the Bankruptcy Court if they are released under current condition. The "Financier" says that Raphael, Tuck & Sons have turned the corner thoroughly not to look back.

CHECKING OF THE FLU.

EFFECT OF SCHOOL CLOSING.

SUCCESSFUL PREVENTIVE STEPS.

A medical correspondent writes:-- The opinion, unfortunately, now generally held by the public that nothing can affect the spread of influenza is happily inaccurate. No doubt, the vaccine preventive treatment as well as attempts at stopping the epidemic by closing schools, etc., have not done much.

For instance, in Christiania where in July of this year schools, theatres, and cinemas were closed, the number of persons affected steadily rose from 2,000 in the first week to 5,000 in the third, whereas in the autumn epidemic, where the institutions remained open, the experience was that the death rate was somewhat lower in Christiania than Copenhagen, where the most of the institutions, including the University, were closed.

The general medical opinion in Belfast is that little has been gained by the closing of the schools. The reason for this failure is that the disease spread so quickly and so widely that these general measures had very little effect. On the other hand, with the knowledge that the disease enters through the nose and throat, measures directed to these quarters have been much more successful.

As an example, it is most interesting to record what occurred at the famous Blue Coat School (Christ's Hospital), where eight hundred boys were in residence there, yet not a single case of influenza broke out although the epidemic was raging all round, the reason being that compulsory measures were taken for using a nasal douche of weak Condy's Fluid in the nose every of every boy. Again, in other areas the same results have been obtained by the wearing of masks for the nose and mouth, this being exactly the same principle adopted by the modern surgeon while operating to prevent any organism from his own mouth or nose reaching his patient.

REVOKING THE PIG ORDER..

"LIKE A BOLT FROM THE BLUE"

The Irish Food Control Committee have informed Mr. P. M'Kenna, J.P., president of the Irish Pig Dealers' Association, that the Food Ministry have decided to revoke the Pig (Sales) Order as from December 29; that the allocations of live pigs for January will be made out on the basis that existed from March 1 to September 30 last, inclusive; and that all British importers registered to receive pigs from Ireland during the latter period are being re-registered and allocated a quota for January.

Questioned as to the effect of the step indicated, Mr. M'Kenna stated that, like other regulations, the Ministry had launched this change like a bolt from the blue and it would cause grave dislocation of trade and consequent loss to Irish breeders, feeders, and dealers for some time.

As to the numbers of live pigs allocated for January to British importers and Irish curers, Mr. M'Kenna said they were 88,000 for home-curing and 22,000 for export. In regard to the dead trade, which is principally confined to Ulster, the figures would be about 25,000 carcasses.

THE BRUTAL HUNS.

Mr. R. Latimer, a young soldier of the Canadian Mounted Rifles, who is at present on a visit to his aunt, Mrs. W. Porter, Moneyhaw, Moneymore, was a prisoner of war in Germany for about 21/2 years. He escaped on the 9th ult., and after many thrilling experiences was recaptured when just about 50 yards from the Dutch frontier. He tells a terrible tale of the great cruelties he and his fellow-prisoners received at the hands of the Germans. On one occasion because the prisoners refused to take soup made from grass the sentries charged them with fixed bayonets, stabbing seven of them, and then knocked the rest about with their rifles. Because they would not work on Sunday the prisoners were made to stand at attention against barbed wire for a twelve-hour day with only an interval of an hour for food. On one occasion Latimer was beaten to the ground, and then jumped upon by a number of Germans armed with rifles. For striking one of his assailants he was shut for seven days in a cellar 8 feet by 4, in which there was no bed of any kind. He effected his escape by slipping from amongst his fellow prisoners as they were entering a coal mine, and mingling with a gang of German civilian miners who were coming off the shift. He passed with them out into the street without any particular heed being taken of him.

ULSTER EIGHTY YEARS AGO.

ROMANCES OF THE PAST

HEALING BY HERBS.

INTERESTING REMINISCENCES.
(Continued.)

Eighty years ago medical men were not called in, as now, to attend to every little ailment the flesh is heir to. Most housewives knew the art of healing with simple herbs. One hears little talk now-a-days about tansy, dandelion, camamile, peppermint, liverwort and such like; they are considered out of date.

Dame Wilson, a very old lady, and a neighbour of ours, made wonderful concoctions from herbs, and ofttimes people from Belfast, and for that matter from Holywood, came to her for medicine. She was very poor and, at the same time, very proud, for she would not take payment for her "cures." Yet none of her patients left her house without leaving silver, large or small, behind them; Sometimes put surreptiously under a bowl on the dresser or elsewhere. When a child I remember being sent a message to the dame's house. I liked going there. She usually gave me apples, and I helped to write labels for her bottles of herb lotion. On this particular day a man from town came in, and commenced telling her all about his ailments. He had an ulcerated stomach. I think I see yet the dame interrogating him, a hand resting meanwhile on each knee as she did so. When she had diagnosed his disease to his satisfaction, she said, "My man, I can cure you;" and added, "Go home, get some carrots and grate them; eat all you can of them first thing every morning. Afterward, take this daily," handing him at same time a bottle of camomile of her own brewing, (I heard afterwards that this treatment effected a complete cure). Just then a poor woman came in. The dame said, "well, how is your mother keeping?" "Wonderful! Wonderful!" replied the woman. "She is still taking your tansy, but ma'am, can you give me something to heal her poor back? She is greatly troubled with bedsores." "I can tell you what to do," said the dame. "Put a pail of spring water under her bed, change the water daily, and she will have no more bedsores." I never heard if this treatment succeeded. The patient in question was over ninety years of age at that time, and was bedridden. In those days leeches were largely used for taking away impure blood. I have often seen them applied. How well I remember, as a child, gazing through a shop window in Hercules Street at bottles of these slimy creatures. The said shop was run by a woman, who did a large trade in this line. She was a poetess as well, for she displayed in her window poetry setting forth the merits of "the Leech."

The verse ran:--
"Here are leeches great and small
They'll take away bad blood from all,
Will the leech.
They'll whip a stye from off your eye,
And as for pimples, they'll make them fly --
Fourpence each."

"Blood-letting" was the order of the day then. Father was considered an expert in this particular line. Sick people came near and far to him to be lanced. I had always to leave the house while lancing was in operation.

I am a very old woman now, having been born on 7th January on the year of grace 1826, and the memory of that "blood-letting" sends a shudder through my old frame as it did in the hey-day of my youth. When I think of the anaemics who came for this drastic treatment it is both amusing and pathetic enough to make one laugh or cry. The wonder is that so many consumptives survived the ordeal.

Country people at that time had a great faith in charms. A sure and certain cure for measles was to pass the patient nine times under a donkey. I n order to make the charm work properly, however, bread had to be given to the donkey during the operation.

A woman who lived at Lambeg had a cure for rheumatism. Her method was to "boil the crook," and give boilings to her patients to drink. It was said that the boilings of the crook never failed to give relief to those afflicted with "the rheumatics."

Any woman whose maiden and married name were alike was said to possess the charm for whooping or chin cough. My mother's maiden name was Grey, and folk whose children had contracted whooping cough brought them to her for treatment. My mother would not disappoint these poor people, but humoured them by giving each of the children bread of her own baking (this was where the charm lay), and let their faith do the rest of the cure.

I remember one cold winter's night we were seated round the fire when a knock came to the door. On opening it, a woman named Brown and her four little children, poorly clad, stood on the threshold. All four children had whooping cough. They had travelled from Knockbracken. My mother brought them in and made them welcome. Father, who was present at the time, said to the poor mother -- "I declare, Mrs. Brown, I thought you had more sense than to believe in such 'tomfoolery.'" Mrs. Brown, ignoring his remark, said to my mother in a quiet manner -- "You'll do what you can for us all, Mrs. Grey." My mother seated the children around the fire, gave each of them a piece of her bread, and patted them on the shoulder in a reassuring way. I recollect hearing father say, after "the patients" had left -- "I declare, Katie, I'm thinking you're about as foolish as Mrs. Brown herself."

Next morning, while at breakfast, Mrs. Brown appeared at our door and asked for my mother, to whom she said -- "God bless you, Mrs. Grey; the cough broke on the childer at 12 o'clock last night!"

Father and mother indulged in a hearty fit of laughter when Mrs. Brown was well out of the way.

As a child, I remember having very severe toothache. I was on a visit at grandfather's in the Ards, at the time. Grandfather seeing me in such distress, sent his servant man on horseback to a woman's house some miles away for a charm for my toothache. Strange to say, when the servant was about half-way on his journey, the pain left me. However, after a breakneck gallop, he brought me the charm, with the injuction that I was not to let it fall to the ground, but to put it in my breast. Being a child, and with a child's inquisitiveness, I opened the packet on the sly, and found that it contained three little balls, evidently made with flour or butter. Wrapped around them was a slip of paper, on which was written words that I dare not set down here. I felt guilty after that episode, and after the lapse of eighty years I fell guilty still.

CATTLE CHARMING.

Cattle charming was in vogue then as well. Barney Rice was the best authority on cattle charming in the district; that is, he was able to cure cows that were said to be bewitched or elf-shot. It was a popular belief at that time that the fairies could, with their little bow and arrows, disable cattle. My brother, when coming home from town one evening, heard loud yells proceeding from a farmyard convenient to Newtownbreda. He was curious enough to investigate the cause of the commotion. On entering the yard he found Barney careering round a cow which was elf-shot, with a lighted turf in his hand. This was his method of finding out where the "elf-shot" was located. After going round the cow seven times, he shouted, " I have got it," and immediately laid the lighted turf on a certain spot of the cow's back with the result that the animal bolted. Barney had found "the spot"; the turf had done its work; the spell was broken.

Barney was a hermit, and lived in a little hut on the Saintfield Road. He wore the same suit of clothes for as many years as I can remember. They were a mass of patches -- so much so that no one could tell the original cloth. Barney broke his leg on one occasion, and was clever enough to set the bone himself. Afterwards he applied a poultice of black soap to bind the broken ligaments; and, right enough, this treatment performed a speedy cure. Barney maintained there was nothing in the world half so healing as black soap. The children teased him about this, and often wrote "black soap" on his back with chalk. "Black soap" stared him in the face when he went to his dwelling; it was written on his door; on his gate -- everywhere about -- and he liked it not at all.

Barney was a stone-breaker by occupation. He sat on the roadside most of his life, hammering away, and anyone familiar with the Saintfield road in those days was familiar with Barney.

No one thought of passing him without having a "confab," long or short. Barney had a great deal to tell about fairies, and, as children, we thought nothing of making a detour of half-a-mile or so on our way from school to hear Barney relate all about the "little people." He told us one day that they sat on his shoulder while he was hammering the stones, but that they fled when they heard us coming. Next day we came quietly behind the hedge where Barney sat, to take the fairies by surprise -- so credulous are children. As we grew older he had other yarns to spin.

He told me a story once I have never forgotten. It is as old as the hills, and is known to every aged person in the district -- The case of Haddock and Tavern. It seemed that Haddock was a lawyer of a sort, and was riding on horseback one evening towards his home at Malone. He was thinking deeply at the time, for he was troubled. His brother had died some little time before, leaving two young children. The children had been well provided for, but, owing to the injustice of another, they lost their rightful possessions. The brother of the dead man was, as I have said, thinking about this matter as he rode along. All at once he became aware of a "presence" close to him. The "presence" said, "Go on with the lawsuit." The lawyer recognising the voice as that of his dead brother, replied, "I have no evidence to show." "Go on with the case," said the "presence," "evidence will be forthcoming," and the "presence" left him. The lawyer next day brought his suit before the court. After hearing all he had to say, the judge said, "produce your evidence." There was a dead silence for a few seconds. Then a wonderful thing happened. A loud knock was given to the table, beside where his honour sat. The court was electrified, and waited with intense interest for the verdict. There was a long pause. Then the judge said, "This is evidence enough."

To-day, anyone who will take the trouble can see for himself in Drumbeg churchyard a recumbent stone bearing the names of Haddock and Tavern. The stone is badly broken and has the appearance of great age.

VISIT OF QUEEN VICTORIA.

The great event in my early youth was the visit of Queen Victoria to our town in the late forties. What a day that was for "Old Belfast!" Flags flying, bands playing, military in their great coats dashing along! The grandeur of everything was simply over-powering and past my old mind to set down here. The royal visit gave food for talk for at least a quarter of a century. It was a chronological date for country people. Births, deaths and marriages were located round that milestone; something happened the year before the Queen came, or the year after.

Belfast ladies were not pleased with the Queen, however, for she was said to have remarked that she had not seen a handsome woman north of the Boyne.

I was close beside her majesty as she passed into Linenhall -- so near as to be able to touch the fringe of her shawl. She was a pleasant looking little body, not handsome at all, but, as a countrywoman who was standing by said, "She was a Queen every inch of her."

Prince Consort, tall and stately, won the admiration of everyone, as he stood, hat in hand, bowing to us all.

How well the dear old Linenhall looked on that festive occasion! -- so gay with bright bunting and flowers. I remember there was a beautiful arch, composed of green flax, at the entrance gate. I love to think of the Linenhall; it was a dear old landmark. I recollect seeing a poem in a local paper at the time of its overthrow; it was entitled, "A Plea for the Linenhall." I quote from my copy.

"And so I'm out of fashion -- said to be old and worn,
And strangers shrug their shoulders and want me downward torn.
I'm grey, and so unsightly too! Fast moulding to decay --
Well, well! Perhaps Belfast is right -- and I have had my day.
Men thought me, in the olden time, a model of delight;
I was pointed out to visitors as a noble, worthy sight.
Alas! That generation's gone, and I am left alone,
Without one hand to shield me from being overthrown.
Belfast was not a city then, but just a dear old town,
And I was as its pivot -- that commerce went around.
I made the town a city, too -- I mean its staple trade:
Then woe to him who spurns me and wants me in the shade.
No tramcars then did grace our streets, for people once could walk
No trains kept shrieking loudly to give us all a shock.
No telegrams, no telephones, nor yet Westminster chimes --
O yes, dear me, 'tis sadly true. I'm far behind the times.
Well! well! Perhaps the world is right, 'tis true I'm getting sere;
But all the same I cannot help brushing away a tear.
Old buildings, like old friends, are often in the way:
Well, well, perhaps Belfast is right, and I have had my day."

Owing to ill-health, the result of an accident, I have been laid aside for a long number of years, but, strange to relate, within the past few months, I am able to be about again and I feel glad -- I want to see my old town once more! So, on bright mornings, with my staff in hand, and leaning on the arm of a friend I saunter forth to see "old landmarks." To-day, I pass through Donegall Place, once a residential part of the town. I remember the gentry and "well-to-do" merchants living there. It was called "The Flags" in my early days.

I wend my way to Montgomery's market. Alack-a-day, what changes. Yet the same old paviours are there, over which trod the generations I write about; the same sheds;- but, where are the smiling faces of the vendors, who sat at their doors surrounded with baskets of fruit? I miss old Mrs. Annesley and many others. I sally forth to William Street South. How often I bought fruit there from Kitty Curran! Poor Kitty! She was a general favourite. I pass down Ann Street. I remember when every shop was a dwelling-house there: in other words, shopkeepers lived over their places of business. It was a good old-fashioned custom, and a sensible one too. Church Lane as it is now is unknown to me. I saunter forth to Cromac Street, with its (once) barbers' poles. Alas! no landmarks there. I turn away; I am feeling tired; another day I shall go further afield.

Belfast has become a city of palatial buildings; it is a "New" Belfast; "New" people, new everything. I know ----------- old-fashioned notion, but ------------ give me "old times," "old ----------------- old town," in place of [paper was torn at this point]
