SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1914. Topical Tattle. Why Pay the Teachers more ? What a quesijoij Because there is no help for it ♦ Thank goodness we appear to be at the end of the educational upset, and things will soon resume thoir normal course, let us hope. The Special Committee of the County Council did last week-end what they ought to have done months ago, and thus have saved all this bitter struggle and the setting back of the education of the youth of the county. What the Board of Education think of the humiliating position of this county can be gathered by their action, which has in effoct put an end to the strike. The teachers have won handsomely, and it now only remains for all concerned to settle down with a will and make up for lost time. # Alderman Corner has cornered many people in his time, but he himself has at last been cornered. Hence his resignatioij from the Special Committee. The business of this county has far too long been conducted on lines laid down by the autocratic few, and it is time we bad a little common sense method introduced in place of high-banded autocracy. Hereford- shire has a very poor standing amongst the County Councils of the country for progress, and goodness knows no county needs it more than this. And this lack of progress can only be set down to the methods employed, which were all very well 10 or 20 years ago, but things have got a move on since then. Herefordshire has always seemed to be the last to fall in the march of pro- gress, and the reason is not far to seek. If it serves no other purpose let us hope the teachers strike will have a beneficial effect on our County Council as an administrative body. t The local amateur minstrels who have been disporting their talent this week at the Royal Hall, Ledbury, surprised a good many people, and no member of the troupe contri- buted more to that surprise than Mr Harry Barnard, who — whether as a cornerman, comedian, or lightning sketch artist, was exceedingly good. His sketches were ex- tremely clever, though as usual when a local amateur does anything out of the ordinary some of the suspicious and sweetly disposi- tioned people who live amongst us suggested "fakes," The artist promptly replied by asking one of the audience on the stage on Wednesday night, to turn over the sheets for him and see that there were no fakes." By the way, Harry, the news paper of the one and only proved pretty good sketching paper, didn't it ? The debate at the Town Hall on Wednesday night on the propobals of the National Ser- vice League proved to be one of the most interesting evenings, personally, that I remember spending in this relic of the old days. Mr Barnes proved himself a clever debater, and Mr Baily presented his case very well, though I thought he let go by certain arguments of his opponent could well have been answered. After all there was not time for all the pros and cons of this great national question to be discussed, and neither of the participants could be expected te cover the ground thoroughly in the time at their disposal. All the same those who were present must agree that the time was far from wasted, and their knowledge of the subject was added to. If the debate does nothing else it should bring home to the people of the district a realisation of the extravagant waste of money which annually goes on in armaments amongst the Great Powers. If the present rate of expenditure continues it will ulti- mately mean that taxation will reach the breaking point for some of the countries. To this country, of all others, naval supremacy is a matter of life and death, and so long as other countries continue to add to their navies, so long is it necessary that we should move and keep pace with them. From time to time responsible statesmen in this country have thrown out the suggestion that there should be a ship-building holiday, and we all know how that proposal has been received. Consequently for this nation to take the initial step in that direction is tantamount to committing race suicide-and that a Britisher will never be guilty of. TATTLER. j

Messrs Gabb Bros., of No. 7, served licensed and other refreshments, and the accommodation was exceedingly good. The ball was voted a tremendous success, and was most enjoyable.

MUCH MARCLE CARPENTER'S LAPSE. Lost Property Detained. On Saturday morning last at Ledbury Police Court, before Mr Spencer H Bickham (in the chair) and Dr. Miles A Wood, William Ratcliffe, carpenter, who for the past six months has been working as a carpenter at Much Marcle, was brought up in custody on a charge of stealing a threshing machine beic, value £ 5, the property- of Leonard Powell, farmer, of Wolton, Muck Marcle, on January 20. Prisoner should have appeared at the Petty Sessions on the previous Wednesday to answer the charge, but as he failed to attend a warrant was issued for his arrest, which was executed at Alfrick, Worcester, on Thursday. Mr Langley Smith, jun., of Gloucsster, was for the defence. Daniel Fortey, general labourer in the employ of the prosecutor, said on January 20 he was working at Wolton with Mr Powell's threshing machine, which they moved from Wolton to Noggin, about 1* miles away. Witness loaded the things up, and placed the driving belt on the riddles of the threshing machine. When he got to the Noggin with the threshing machine he missed the driving belt, and although he and others searched for it they could not find it. The belt (produced) was rolled up but not tied, and he identified the belt produced as belonging. to Mr Powell. Cross-examined by Mr Langley Smith There was no name on the belt, and he identified it by a scratch and waxend stitches. Prisoner had never worked for Mr Powell. Leonard Powell, farmer, of Chandos, Much said the value of the belt was j35. He made inquiries the same night as the bolt was lost, calling at prisoner's lodgings. He saw prisoner's landlady. Cross-examined by Mr Langley Smith He did not know prisoner, who had never worked for him, or seen the belt before to his know- ledge. Supt. Williams said bills were printed and circulated in Marcle notifying the loss of the belt, offering a reward, and stating that anyone found detaining the belt would be prosecuted., On February 6 he went to Much Marcle and in. company with P.C. Hayward he made inquiries in the district. He went and saw prisoner Ratcliffe at his work on Marcle Hill. He explained to prisoner who he was and what his business was, and asked prisoner if he knew anything about the driving belt, and prisoner said he knew nothing about it. Prisoner admitted he had seen one of the reward bills- with reference to the belt, but again repeated, that he knew nothing about it. Witness told, him he was of opinion that he knew something about it, but he still denied all knowledge of it. He then told prisoner there was nothing for him- to do but to lock him up on suspicion of stealing the belt. Prisoner then said, "Well, I have got one that I don't want." He accompanied prisoner to his lodgings and found the belt at the bottom of a tin box, which prisoner unlocked. A lot of wearing apparel was on top of the belt. Witness took possession of the belt. He did not arrest prisoner, as he thought it was a case for a summons. Cross-examined by Mr Langley Smith Notices were issued about a week after the belt was lost, notifying the reward. P.C. Hayward, of Much Marcle, corroborated the evidence of Supt. Williams as to what took place on February 6. He served a summons om prisoner on February 7 by leaving it with his landlady, and subsequently arrested him on a warrant on February 12. He read the charge over to him, and he made no reply. He brought prisoner to Ledbury on Friday and in the train prisoner said he hoped witness would not say more than he could help. Cross-examined by Mr Langley Smith He knew prisoner had left his address at Alfriek with his landlady at Much Marcle. At Alfrick prisoner was engaged in threshing for a farmer there when he arrested him. Prisoner was then charged and pleaded not guilty. After a consultation with his solicitor, however, prisoner withdrew the plea of not guilty and pleaded guilty. Mr Langley Smith then addressed the Bench on behalf of the prisoner, and explained that it was his first offence. Prisoner picked up the belt on the day it was lost between 1 and 1.15 p.m. The belt was placed in the harness-room at his lodgings until the notice of the loss was issued, when prisoner stupidly took it from the harness-room, wrapped it in paper and placed it in the bottom of his box. He pointed out that there was nothing on the belt to show who the owner was, and when the bills were issued prisoner was afraid that the fact that he had had the belt in his possession for a week would go againat him. He asked the Bench to bind the man over. Henry Weston, farmer, of The Bounds, Much Marcle, said defendant had been employed by him for about six months as a carpenter, and he had found him thoroughly honest and trust- worthy, and a very tidy man. From his experience of the man he would certainly trust him. Prisoner was admonished by the Bench, and bound him over to come up for judgment if called upon within six months. He would have to pay the costs, JB2 19s 6d, which were much larger than they would have been if he had surrendered on Wednesday last.
CHURCH ARMY.—On Friday next, February 27, a series of lantern services will be com- menced in The Church Roem, Ledbury, by Capt Nash, at 8 p.m., when the subject will be "Mine or Thine—Which"? This will be followed by an entirely new subject every week during the season of Lent. Everyone is cordially invited to attend and bring with them their friends. There will be no charge for admission, and all seats are free.
