ENGLISH CHURCH UNION. I Anniversary of the Herefordshire Branch. The anniversary of the Herefordshire Branch J of the English Church Union was held at Here- 1 ford on Tuesday. There was a celebration of the Holy Eucharist at 8 o'clock in the Ladye Chapel of the Cathedral, and at 11-30 a Choral Celebration with sermon, which was preached by the Rev E Hermitage Day, D.D. The annual general meeting was held in the College Hall, when the election of officers took place for the Herefordshire District Union :—President —Mr Spencer H Bickham. Vice-Presidents— Rev Preb W H Lambert, Rev Dr Hermitage Day, Rev C L Mfcney-Kyrle, and Mr John Riley. Delegate to the Council-Rev S E B Seele. Treasurer—Rev S Scarlett Smith. The President, in his address, said :—I have first to thank you for the honour you do me by electing me President of this District Union, but while I fully appreciate your kindness and value the position, I feel that in the interest of the Union it would be better filled by one who has not qualified for an old-age pension—still no one has greater sympathy with the aims and objects of the Union than myself, and I will endeavour to promote these to the best of my power. The annual report of the Union has doubtless been read by all present, and in some respects it is not cheerful reading. What with attacks from the Church's foes without, in the form of the Bill for disestablishing the Church in Wales and our dissensions and difficulties within, arising from enemies to the faith within the Church's fold, evidenced by the continuous attacks on the Athanasiaa Creed the desire to eliminate from the questions to candidates for Holy Orders the acknowledgment that the Bible is the Word of God in the sense in which the Catholic Church has ever understood it the proposed revision of the Prayer Book on lines antagonistic to Catholic practice and doctrine; the matters arising out of the Kikuyu Conference, and perhaps above all the latitudinarian interpretation of the doctrinal obligations of the clergy as regards the Virgin Birth and the Resurrection of the Body of our Lord in the face of all this Catholic Churchmen might be tempted to despond were it not for our faith in the Divine Ruler and Head of the Church and the remembrance of how similar and far greater difficulties and dangers have been surmounted in the past. Let me remind you (to quote from the Rev S Baring-Gould's Church Revival) that within the lifetime of some of us present, Dr Arnold, of Rugby, ventured to propose that all sects should be united by Act of Parliament with the Church of England that some of the Prelates were then favourable to alterations in in the Liturgy with distinctly Protestant ten- dencies that pamphlets were in wide circula- tion recommending the abolition of the creeds (at least in public worship) especially urging the expulsion of the Athanaaian Creed the removal of all mention of the Blessed Trinity, of the doctrine of Baptismal Regenera- tion and of the practice of Absolution, while the grossest Erastianism prevailed among all classes of politicians. I say let me remind you of this but let me go further and let me recall to your recollection, or at least to some of you, what was the state of things even 45 years ago, when I first was a member of the E.C.U.—the persecu- tions and imprisonment of even moderate High Churchmen, guiltless of any worse crime than wearing a surplice in the pulpit, repeating the Invocation before the sermon and the prayer for the Church militant afterwards, perhaps with the additional offence of placing the symbol of our truth on the altv. If it cost me my see I will have that cross removed" cried one of the Bishops only half a century ago. Even to be a member of the E.C.U. made many look askance at you and I well remember a priest lamenting in the bitterness of his soul from the pulpit that we were assailed and caluminated with an amount of virulence, vindictiveness and vituperation altogether incredible. We may smile at the phraseology but it correctly describes the ani- mosity then generally felt against us and our practices. T' %(eneral l y felt against us an d our practices. The remembrance of these things may well make us wonder at the impatienc of our younger members who talk or seceding to Rome from chagrin that our progress has not been quicker or at the toleration shown to men w hose grasp on the fundamentals of the Christian Truth is more than doubtful. Rather do I thank God that I have lived to see the realization of so much that at one time was thought almost impossible. At the present moment there is not a diocese, there is hardly a town of any importance where those who wish for Catholic ceremonial cannot find it and not infrequently not only with the sanction but with the assistance (pontifically) of the Bishop of the Diocese. But while I, personally, delight in Catholic ritual as emphasised in the tnixed chalice, wafer bread, lights, vestments and incense the belief in Catholic doctrine is of far more concern than any amount of display of Catholic ritual, and I thank God still more that I have lived to see the Real Presence and the Eucharistic Sacrifice proclaimed to be the tenets of the Universal Church in all ages in thousands of Churches that hitherto have not adopted Catholic ritual, for Ritual is merely the outward expression of Catholic Faith. There is one paragraph in the report which I wish had been expressed somewhat differently. Some of you are probably aware that I take great interest in the scheme of Diocesan Finance upon which the report says that better than all assessments is direct personal inculcation on the faithful of the necessity of proportioning the amount given to religious and charitable objects with the amount of income. We cordially agree but we say that it is the work of the Clergy to inculcate this duty of giving proportionately to the power that each one possesses, while the Laity should undertake the main work of collection with more control on the administration of the funds. Exception is also taken to the method adopted in the apportionment of the parochial contributions, but it must be remembered that these are only suggestions for consideration between the elected members of each Deanery and the Rector and Churchwardens of each parish and must be modified if and as occasion requires. I cannot help feeling that we have not in the past sufficiently realized our responsibilities to the Church as a whole and have, as a rule, been content to let our energies for the Church at home chiefly be eoD- fined to the parish in which we live. I believe that if we carry out in each diocese the recom- mendations of the Archbishops' Diocesan Finance scheme, greater interest will be aroused in the welfare of the Church and a wamaer response given to her needs, while the organisa- tion will be a potent factor to prevent Disestab- lishment, or prove of incalculable advantage should this evil unhappily be forced upon as. When I wrote these few remarks it was my intention briefly to refer to (1). The Disestab- lishment of the Church in Wales. (2). The teaching of the Church respecting Episcopacy and Catholic order. (3). The obligation to maintain the statements of the Christian Creeds. (4). The refusal on the part of certain bishops to license assistant curates but since then the anniversary of the English Church Union has been held and these subjects so ably considered, that I think the best course will be at the close of our meeting to read the resolutions then unanimously agreed to and to pass a resolution cordially endorsing them all. Mr Wilfred de Winton then gave an address on the "Present Position and Outlook," and moved the following resolution, whi.h was carried unanimously :— That this meeting, holding there is in principle no inconsistency between a national recognition of religion and the spiritual in- dependence of the Church, welcomes the appointmentby the Archhishops of Canterbury and York of a Committee to enquire what changes are advisable to secure in the rela- tions of Church and State a fuller expression of the spiritual autonomy of the Church) as well as the national recognition of religion." After a cordial vote of thanks having been aocorded to bhe speaker, the resolutions referred to by the President were read and unanimously agreed to. They were as follows "That this District Union re-affirms its posi- tion of uncompromising opposition to the Welsh Disestablishment Bill, especially as regards the pretensed dismemberment of the Synod of the Province of Canterbury, and the provisions for what amounts to re-estabiialnneiit on a parlia- mentary basis as well as in regard to the unjust confiscation of the endowments of the Welsh Dioceses and the appropriation of a large pro- portion of the same to secular uses." That this District Union, understanding that certain Bishops have recently adopted the practice of refusing to license assistant curates in parishes where the incumbent adheres to certain Catholic usages, respectfully protests that such policy is ultra vires, and is inequitable as tend- ing to penalize the parishioners and not the incumbent for his alleged offence, and to cripple the spiritual work of the parish." That this District Union begs leave respect- fully to thank the Bishop of London for the action taken by him in the Sacred Synod of the Province regarding the obligation of the clergy to maintain and set forth the fundamental statements of the Christian Creeds." "That this Meeting declares its adherence to the traditional teaching and practice of the Catholic Church, which shows that Apostolic succession and episcopal ordination are necessary for the existence and continuance of a valid ministry of the Word and Sacraments."

I CARDEN FETE AT CANON-FFROME COURT. I A Brilliant and Successful Gathering. In aid of the District Nursing and Ashperton Church Funds a garden fete was held at Canon- Ffrome Court (by kind permission of Colonel and Mrs Hopton), yesterday (Thursday) after- noon. The spacious grounds of the Court, which were looking at their best, were thrown open to the public from 2 to 9 p.m., and as was to be expected with such brilliant weather, there was an exceedingly large attendance of the general public, who came from far and near to enjoy a beautiful afternoon in pleasant surroundings under ideal conditions. The flag bearing the Hopton Arms, which was made in the Royal Navy, floated gaily in the breeze. Practically the whole of the spacious grounds were thrown open to visitors, and the scene during the afternoon was one of animation. As was to be expected with such delightful, bright sunshine, happily tempered by a welcome breeze, the members of the lair sex added a dash of colour to the scene, although with a tennis tournament the chief attraction white predominated. In addition to the tennis tournament (an American, open handicap, for prizes, for (a) mixed doubles and (b) gentlemen's doubles) there was a clock golf tournament and bowling for a live pig, while the entertainments included programmes by Mrs E Pritchett's (Munsley Castle) troupe of pierrots, who gave entertain- ments in the rock garden, and the splendid band of the King's 1st Shropshire Light Infantry,quar- tered at Tipperary, who played a most enjoyable ptogramme of music during tea-time, and again from seven o'clock for two hours on the spacious lawn in front of the Court. The tennis tournament, of course, attracted a large amount of attention and there was an interested crowd of spectators at the two points where play was in progress. There were tire courts on one of the main lawns and two courts on the usual tennis ground. Mr W Brockle- hurst, of Credenhill, Hereford, officiated as hon. secretary of the tennis tournament. The clock golf competition, managed by Mr J J Tilley, of Ledbury, attracted a large number of entries, and play was very keen. The bowling for live pig was in eharge of Mr Penry Lloyd, who also had a busy afternoon. The Pierrots gave two performances in the rock garden, and were well patronised, the programmes submitted being of a very enter- taining character, the members of the troupe consisting largely of members of the Pritchett families, whose abilities in this direction are well-known. The musical programmes submitted by the band were of an excellent character and the main front lawn which slopes down to the lake was quite a centre of attraction during the time the band occupied a position there in the afternoon, while when the dance programme was given the lawn was besieged with dancers. A feature of the musical programme was the prominence given to compositions of Colonel Hopton, who is so well-known in this direction. The afternoon programme included his Wed- ding March," songs (a) "Sleep! Darling, Sleep and (b) Virtue," and the valse Ceylon Whispers." The dance programme included 11 numbers, five of them being Colonel Hopton's works, viz:—March," Wedding March"; valse, "Autumn Leaves"; songs- three f ragmentsof soing-(&) "Wolsey's Lament," (b) "Rosemary," and (c) "A Plaint"; valse, "Dreams of the Nile" and valse, "Ceylon Whispers. The catering throughout was undertaken by the Imperial Cafe and Restaurant Co., of Hereford, whose manager, Mr A E Barrow, supervised the arrangements, and despite the rush for tea about five o'clock, the large staff satisfied all nee&. Messrs Wilson and Phillips, of Hereford, assisted generally in managing the whole affair. The winners in the clock golf competition, for which the prizes were given by Mrs Hopton, were:-1, Captain Neabibtand Miss.Niblett; .2, Mr L P Hoult and Miss Stephens. Bowls.—1, Mr Tomlinson, Mainstone Court, score 69, prize, live pig 2, Mr T Williams, Hereford, score i6.Q, prize, a hen.

I THREATENED STRIKE OF FARM LABOURERS. Great activity is still going on in the iross branches of the Workers' Union, and some time ago it was stated that, in all probability, the members of that union would strike at the time of the hay harvest, one of the most awkward seasons of the year for the farmers. This now appears to be almost a fore- gone conclusion, for at a meeting of the Igellaok branch of the Workers' (Union, when there was a very large attendance of members, it was unanimously decided that the mem bers of that branch should hand in their notices to their respective employees as soon as they received instructions from the Executive Committee. These instructions will probably be received in the course of the next few days. This will no doubt be the start of a general strike through- out the county, says the secretary of the Sellack branch. Mr. S. Box, the Union representive in Here- fordshire, has visited most pacts of the county during the past week or two, and, we under- stand journeyed to Birmingham on Tuesday. (sf- ter spending the previous day in Malvern) in connection with the threatened strike. The following is the programme already adopted by the Workers' Union in Hereford- shire :— 1. That for general workmen the hours -should for six weeks before and sis weeks after Christmas be 54 hours, work to be from seven a.m. to five p.m., with one hour interval for dinner, and that the rate of pay should be 4d ;per hour. That in the summer the'hours should ¡be from six a.m. to six p.m., with one-and-a- half hours off for meals. Saturday"BLK a.m. to -one p.m., with half-hour break for -breakfast. .e. Waggoners: That in winter .the hours should be 55, including Sunday duty, and in summer 59, with a half-day holiday per week by iuiubual arrangement between farmer And work- man. This should.also apply to shepherds and stodkmen. 3. Shepherds and Stockmen That the hours of these should be tit, winter and summer. 4. That overtime urates for all workers &r all hours within two of starting time, and two hourssafter stopping time, should be at the rate of time and a quarter.

DEATH AND FUNERAL OF MR. JESSE CARROOD. I FORMER LEDBURY SOLICITOR. It is with regret that we record the death of a former Ledbury gentleman in the person of Mr Jesse Garrood, of Chelmsford, Rich- mond Park Crescent, Bournemouth, the sad news respecting which reached Ledbury on Saturday last. The late Mr Garrood was 72 years of age. He was a son of the late Mr Robert Elmy Garrood, of Chelmsford, Essex, and was educated at the Grammar School, Chelms-jj ford, where he won the first silver medal J struck for top boy in the school in 1856. He was articled to Mr F Copeland, solicitor, of Chelmsford. He came to Ledbqry in the eady seventies and succeeded to the practice which was established in 1765, and which was then carried on by Messrs Mutlow and Barber, solicitors. He conducted that business most honourably for 28 years, retiring in 1908. In 1873 be married Miss Alice Louisa Haslar, daughter of the late Mr Robert Haslar, of Burnham. They resided for some years at No. 10, High-street, Ledbury, and then took up their residence in the Southend. There were two children of the marriage-- Mr J R Garrood, M.A., M.D. (Cambridge) and Mr Henry Garrood, who succeeded to deceased's practice as a solicitor, and both of whom are surviving. He was twice married, his first wife having pre-deceased him on the 20th December, 1906. I THE LATE MR. JESSE GARROOD. Upon his retirement from practice in 1908 he took up his residence at Rutland Lodge, South Parade, Ledbury, and in 1909 he Jeft to reside at Chelmsford, Richmond Park Crescent, Bournemouth. Soon after his retirement, from active practice be had a rather serious illness, but he rallied, and, thanks to a good constitu- tion, was able to get about and enjoy the rest which he had so well deserved. Whilst in Ledbury his medical ad viser was Dr. Green. Bournemouth seemed to suit him very well, as was evident on his visits to Led bury, where be experienced the greatest pleasure in meeting his many old friends and acquaintances. His last visit to Led- bury was in August of 1913, the occasion being the annual speech day in connection with the Russell Endowed School, at which gathering he presided. For the past few months he had been very feeble, and, despite the best medical atten- tion, be passed away as above stated at 4 o'clock on Saturday morning last at his Bournemouth Tesidence at the age of 72 years, the immediate caue of death being cardiac disease. It may not be generally known, but the late MrGarroorl, WaByery largelv instrumental in Ledbury being granted Urban powers, under the Local Government Act of 1894. Some of his old friends, will, doubtless, remember thatheconvened a public meeting- which was attended by a very large and influential gathering—and having, with others, explained the advantages of having Urban powers, his influence and that of others, was themeatis of Ledbury having an Urban Council rather than the status of a Parish Council. It -seemed at the time that his appointment as Clerk to the Urban Council on its formation was a just reward and honour for services rendered. He served as Clerk for some years, but in consequence of differences of opinion with Rome members of the Council he severed his connection therewith and resigned. It is interesting to recall the fact that, in the year 1881 he floarted the Ledbury Coffee House Company, Ltd., and in the same year was instrumental in arranging literary readings in connection with the Reading IROODQ. From 1861 to 1891 be was a member of the Ledbury Lighting 'Inspectors, the meetings being held at his office. Amongst other duties of the Inspectors they super- intended the Ledbury Volunteer Fire (Brigade, and at the annual dinner in con- nectioa with the Brigade he invariably occupied the vice-chair and was prepared with historic and aflegorical accounts of ancient local history. The inauguration vf the Ledbury Markets :and Fairs Company waa in a great measure due to his foresight and forethought, and no one was more pleased than he was to see the company thrive as it has done and is con- tinning to prosper. He was honorary manager for 21 years. In fact it was not until he had purchased the market site that he succeeded in forming a company to carry out the scheme, and so successful was he in negotiating the enterprise that the building sites on the property practically paid for the freehold of the present cattle fiaarket. And, it should be added, he did not hesitate to pass-on the profits of such sale for the benefit of tbe market scheme. The enterprise was completed when he negotiated a '99 years lease of the market tolls with the Lords of the Manor. The great amount of work for, and the extent,df the interest. he took in. the Russell Endowed School, at Ledbury, will never be known or realised. He was a trustee of the School from the time of its inception, and never failed to attend a meeting, so anxious was be for the suacess of the school, which has proved 4aucb a great benefit, educationally, to the town and district. Only those who knew him very intimacy knew what a deep interest he took in the proposal for tfee erectioo of a public institute to perpetuate the memory of the celebrated poetess, Elizabeth Barrett Browning. In conjunction with his friend, the late Mrs IR/UBsell, of Woodlands, be worked with determination and-, zeal in order to see the Institute erected. And then when that had beoome an accomplished fact he became Chairman of the Management Committee. Hie connection with horticultural, fruit, and poultry shows was of a very wide and varied character. He was at the beck and call of everyone, for they looked upon him as a vade mecum. In 1891 he greatly assisted in the formation of the Ledbury Fruit Growers' Association, and was the honorary secretary when a show on a very large scale was held in Ledbury Park, at which there were entries from practically all over the world. He conducted considerable entomo- logical research (in conj unction with the late Eleanor A Omeroyd) in fruit-tree insect I I peats, particularf the winter moth. He was always a cordial sspporter of the Ledbury Reading Room and Library, acting for a great number of years on the manage- ment committee of that body, and very frequently presided at their gatherings. Always a staunch Churchman he became churchwarden in 1886, and for many years served as sidesman at the Parish Church, of which choir be was «; very valuable member. He was the possesser of a good bass voice, which he used to the pleasure of Ledbury audiences on many occasions. He was hon. secretary of the Ledbury Choral Society, also of the Instrumental Society, for a number of vears, and likewise of the Musical Society ,vhich was formed later. His interest in the Ledbury Building Society is well kn(,wu by the present mem- bers, and as solicitor to the Society until he retired from practice they bad explicit con- fidence in him and with the advice he always proffered. As an honorary member of the Ledbury Ancient Order of Foresters he showed his interest in friendly society work for many years, and was the solicitor to the Good Samaritan Court. It is interesting to note that the year 1876 saw the late Mr Garrood forming Spelling Bees" at Ledbury, which in those days were very popular. He had a great deal to do with the successful festivities in con- nection with the Jubilee in 1887 and also at the Diamond Jubilee, and his sound advice was sought in the formation of the School Board in 1894. Stirring times in political electioneering were experienced by the late Mr Garrood. He was agent for Mr Michael Biddlph, M.P. (now Lord Biddulph) and it is note- worthy that he never failed to get his candi- date a seat in the House of Commons-in fact the Member sat for the un broken record of 35 J ears. I THE FUNERAL. I The funeral took place on Tuesday at 11 a.m. at Bournemouth cemetery, the service being conducted by the Rev W H Thompson, M.A. The obsequies were of a private nature, and was attended by only relatives and close acquaintances, and these included The Widow, the two sons of deeeased, Mr A F Dodd (Liverpool), Mr Ladmore, Mr W Barnett, Dr Mercer, Mr Elliott, Miss Dudley, and Mr Robert Berion (all of Bournemouth). Amongst the wreaths and floral emblems sent were. In loving remembrance of my dear husband. In remembrance of my good and loving father, Henry and Maria. To father, in loving remembrance, Robert and Janet, Alconbury Hill; Huntingdon. In affectionate remembrance of a trustee aud real friend of the Russell Endowed School, Ledbury, from the head master and Mrs F W Wade and the pupils. In kind remembrance, from Dr and Mrs Mossoph. Sincere sympathy, from Mr and Mrs Luckin. With love and sympathy, from Eliza Dodd and Arthur Francis Dodd. In loving sympathy, from Jim and Edith Cox. With my love, Mrs Ladmore. In remembrance, from Kathrin Irwood. In affectionate memory, from Florence Elliott.
At a Committee Meeting of the Old Russell- ians' Association on Wednesday evening last, the following resolution was proposed by Mr S F Fell, seconded by Mr E F Barnett, and carried unanimously that The Old Russell- iaus' Association having heard with the deepest regret of the death of their vice- President, Mr Jesse Garrood, desire to express their sympathy with the members of his family, in the sorrow that has fallen upon them, and wish to place upon record their appreciation of his ungrudging efforts, as one of the Trustees, to raise the school to its present high standard, and thereby fitting for the battle of life all who have passed through the school."
LONG RANGE RIFLE MATCH AT CANON-FFROME. The first match of the season took place on Colonel Hopton's private range on the 17th and 18th instant. Four members of the English Eight Club competed, and the draw for sides took place on the night previous to the match, Colonel Hopton and Mr Ranaome being drawn as partners against Colonel Mellish and Mr Rogers. Fifteen shots were fired on the first day at each of the four distancea-900, 1,000, 1.100, and 1,200 yards and the same number on the second day at 1,100, 1,200, 1,300, and 1/100. The new Bisley method of marking and scoring was used for the first time, viz: a central of 24 inches in the 36-ins. bullseye up to 1,200 yards, and a central of 32 inches in the 48-ins. bullseye for 1,300 and 1,400 yards, which counted six points. Some very fine shooting was witnessed as the weather was ideal, the wind consist- ing of light summer breezes throughout the shooting. Mr Ransome, who won the Gold Jewel of the English Eight Club at Bisley earlier in the month, shot magnificently and scored 31-8 points on each day; he shot with a B.S.A..280-in. barrel with Mannlirche action, and Kings' Norton Metal sCo' ammunition. Colonel Hopton shot on the first day B.S.A..280-in. Mannlicher and Ross 1912 ammunition, and on the second day with a .300-in. B.S.A. Mannlicher and U.M.C. ammunition. Colonel Mellish used on the ,tirst day a ROBS .280-in. and Kings' Norton ammunition, and Mr Rogers fired with a B.S.A. -300-in. Mannlicher on both days. Colonel Hopton and Mr Ransome won a most interesting mateb by 77 points. The targets, manufactured by Spencer, of Reading, were admirably worked by the Estate men Messrs T Beavan, Oliver and' F Smith and Mr Lloyd and Mr Zimmerman undertook the duties of umpire and scorer at the firing point. The highest individual score of the match was the 85 out of a possible 90 at the 1,100 yards on the second day made by Colonel Hopton; it may be noted that under last year's method of scoring this would have counted as a highest possible," for all the 15 shots were "in the black." Mr Ransome put up the wonderfully good score of 84 at the extreme range of 1,400 yards. We append tfce detailed score of the match :— 1st Day.
