ACROSS THE TABLE. I During the Royal Show week Shrewsbury police were relegated to the outskirts of the borough, as Liverpool and London men man- .aged the traffic. A truthful correspondent assures us, says the Mark Lana Express, of .-the following facts. One of the locals was dressed in plain clothes to act as a detective. t30 cleverly and conscientiously did he carry out his duty of guarding others that on going off duty he found himself minus 28s. Some- one had detected it in his pocket. Both the "nut" and his feminine equiva- lent—she has no adequate nickname—have a wide choice of new seaside sartorial eccentri- cities this year. The most popular headgear ffor young men, the Globe says, is on the lines •of a Cornish fisherman's cap, and is generally of a violent hue. scarlet and crimson being the favourite shades. White socks are also do arigueur, and s.tockings of the same colour are in high favour with the opposite sex. Paper eunshades of a Japanese pattern enliven the promenade, and a feminine adaptation of the blouse worn by German sailors is another fashionable article of wear. A well-dressed portly man stood for several (moments watching a brawny drayman who was laboriously tugging at a large heavy box, which seemed almost as wide as the doorway through which he was trying to move it. Pre- ijeently the kindly-disposed onlooker approached the perspiring drayman and said, with a patronising air: "Like to have a lift?" "Bet _yer life!" the other replied, and for the next two minutes the two men, on opposite sides of the box, worked, lifted, puffed, and wheezed, but it did not move an inch. Finally the portly man straightened up and said, be- tween his puffs: "I don't believe we can get it in there." "Get it in?" the drayman shouted. "Why, you idiot, I'm trying to get it The late Lord Ellesmere was not the only iPeer of the present day who came into a vast (fortune as the outcome of a trust of long (duration. Another was the late Lord Rendle- gham, who inherited an immense estate under very similar circumstances as the descendant of Peter Thellusson, whose last testament created so much sensation rather more than 100 years ago. It was, indeed, this will which was responsible for the Act of Parliament making any further dispositions of the same order impossible. In his own case, however, Parliament re- fused to interfere, and the property be- -queathed was constantly allowed to accumu- late until the £ 600,000 had become tens of millions. But the Law Courts swallowed up most of the money before the three genera- tions had passed away, and Lord Rendle- sham, to whom the inheritance came on the .Ieath of the last survivor in 1856, received but an ordinary fortune instead of the huge mountain of gold which old Peter Thellusson .11ad dreamt of. The Londoner dies out, we have been told, in about three generations. In this connection it is of interest to note the death,, at the age of ninety, of an old lady who was for half a century or more the sextoness of St. Nicholas Cole Abbey, Queen Victoria-street. Her hus- band was simultaneously the parish clerk. 'The two succeeded the latter's fatfc&s aad another. On the old lady who has just died retiring twenty years ago, she was succeeded as sextoness by her daughter-in-law, who still holds the position. The latter's husband' is also engaged at .the church. Thus for three Renerations members of the family, with -sheir wives, have been responsible for the lesser upkeep of the church; aDd meanwhile mearly a century has elapsed* "You must have saved the lives of many lovers? said a Daily Sketch writer the other .day to the ferryman at Twickenham. "Yes," he replied, modestly, but it's a thankless task. Last Sunday I was roundly abused for A rescue I made. The lady had a wig, and it came off in my hand. You brute!' she 6brieked, let me drown Let me drown! Little Sammy was generally at loggerheads -with his father, who had a habit of using hia razor-strop in a way that was not in accord- ance with Sammy's views. One morning, after -the razor-strop had been more than usually busy, Sammy's mother went out into the field to look for her much-stropped child. To her intense astonishment, she found him fondling a huge goat for which he usually professed a deep hatred. Why, Sammy, darling, it is nice to see you being so kind to poor Billy! Why are you being so gentle with him to- -dav? Over Sammy's face came a look of unspeakable gratitude as he gave the won- dering goat another carrot. "He butted father into the pond this morning!" mur- mured the dear little, chap, patting his four- footed friend affectionately. The car was very crowded, and she was a -very pretty girl, yet no one offered to give up » seat to her. After a minute or so of 11 itrap- lianging" the girl was noticed by a middle- aged Irishman. "Here, girleen," he said, rising to his feet; "sit ye down there." "Oh, Tio, thanks; I'll stand. Keep your seat." Dade an' I will not, then," he replied. "I'm goin' to stand, if 'tis only so that I may see ye the better. Sit ye down, sit ye down. And, anyhow, I'm gettin' out soon." Then a pause, and, in the most pathetic tones, Sorra the luck av me Father Bernard Vaughan told a story the other day of two Jesuit Fathers who went out to Chicago in the early days of American colonisation and were entertained by the Red Indians. One father was served up as oC-Old pie for a great banquet given in honour of the other. In the middle of the banquet the chief, Red-Eyed Eagle, had to leave, and after half an hour returned. His son, who had followed him out, also returned. They then both went out again together, and on re- turning asked for some other food, a little moose or deer. "Why?" it was asked. Be- cause," replied the chief, I have come to the conclusion that you cannot keep down a good Jesuit." The Duke of Saxe-Meiningen, who died recently in his eighty-eighth year, will be re- membered as an enthusiastic supporter of the drama. In this connection, the Journal des 'Debats recalls an amusing story which Ludwig Barnay, the actor, has recorded in his memoirs. Barnay was playing at Mein- ingen in the role of Hamlet. The perform- ance had begun, and trumpets were ushering in the king and prince for the second scene. The advance of the procession was checked by a loud "Halt!" from the stalls. It was the duke, who had entered unnoticed and proceeded to amend the performance. That's not the way to do it. Instead of a salvo of trumpets you must play the Danish (national anthem. And the king and prince shouldn't come on together; they haven't met yet." Nonsense murmured Barnay. Unfor- tunately, he was overheard. "And, pray, why is it nonsense, M. Barnay?" The actor explained that, according to the text, Hamlet and the king had already met outside. M. Grabowsky, called the duke to the pro- ducer, continue as M. Barnay wishes. He is quite right. I never mind acknowledging a mistake. The pkce proceeded. When the players' scene was reached, and Barnay was reciting the actor's part, with iEneas' tale to Dido," he spoke the lines hesitatingly. M. Barnay," interposed the duke, "why did you deliver those lines so badly?" Because Hamlet is not an actor, sire, but only an amateur." "But Polonius praises his act- ing. "Ah! your Highness," answered Barnay, but then Polonius was a courtier, ind courtiers find everything that princes do marvellous." The duke laughed heartily bud interrupted no more that day.

[ALL RIGHTS BMSBVID.J CHRIST'S TRIUMPHAL ENTRY A BIBLE STUDY CONDUCTED BY PASTOR RUSSELL. The Lesson: Mark xi. 1-11. The Text: "Rejoice greatly, 0 daughter of Zion! Shout, 0 daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, thy king cometh unto thee! Zechariah ix. 9. The message of John the Baptist was, "The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand." This same message Jesus bade his disciples carry from village to village throughout Palestine. This same message was the burden of his preaching and the theme of his parables. Finally, at the close of his ministry, the Kingdom did come to the Jewish nation in the sense that it was offered to them—it was theirs for the accepting. To-day's lesson tells of the formal offer of the Kingdom by Jesus and of the neglect of the Jews as a people to accept it. Thus, "He came to his own, and his own received him not"—except a few. His own nation rejected him, and five days later crucified him. A little later, at Pentecost, the few who received him were begotten of the Holy Spirit and became the nucleus of Spiritual Israel, in preparation for the glorious Kingdom and the work which is to be accomplished at his Second Advent. On the evening preceding the story of this lesson Jesus and his disciples were at Bethany, the guests of Lazarus, Martha, and Mary. There was a special feast, pre- pared by those who loved Jesus so dearly. This was the Lazarus whom he had awakened from the sleep of death but a short time before. The feast came at the close of the Jewish Sabbath day. The next morning corresponded to our Sunday, the first day of the week. In preparation for presenting himself as King, Jesus sent two of his disciples for an ass's colt, telling them where they would find it, and instructing them to say that it would be returned after the Master had used it. By the time the colt arrived a con- siderable multitude was there-people of the village of Bethany and others who had come out from Jerusalem, about two miles distant, to see Jesus and to see Lazarus, upon whom the notable miracle had been wrought. It had long been the custom of the kings of Israel to ride to their crowning upon an ass; and the multitude seemed to enter into the spirit of this occasion and to realise what it meant that Jesus was about to ride into Jerusalem on this colt. It signified that finally he was ready to assume the office. of King. I THE KING PRESENTED. For some time the disciples had recog- nised him as the Messiah, the glories of whose reign they were to share; and the multitudes in general had learned to so regard him, saying, "When Messiah cometh, will he do greater works than this man?" Could we expect anything more of Messiah than we see being accomplished by this man Jesus? But this was the first time Jesus had formally put himself forward. On previous occasions, when they had sought to take him by force to make him a king, he had withdrawn himself, realising that the time was not yet come. Now, so far from withdrawing himself, he was taking the active part, sending for the colt, preparing for the triumphal ride to the capital of the nation as its King. We may be sure that. the hearts of the Apostles thrilled with excitement as they thought of the nearness of their Master's glory and of their own share in it; for as yet they did not realise the full import of his words to the effect that he must be crucified and must depart to a far country, even Heaven itself, to be invested with authority, and later return to establish the Kingdom which would bless the world. Jesus, however, was fully aware that the presentation of himself as the King was a formal matter, fulfilling the prophecy and leaving the nation of Israel without excuse. If when he would enter the city the people would rise up en masse, acknowledge him, and acclaim him, then indeed they would be in line with the Divine requirements which would bring them the greatest of all bless- ings. But Jesus knew that the prophecy had already declared that he would be despised and rejected, and that his own people would hide their faces from him in shame. (Isaiah liii. 3.) The journey and the preparation for it, therefore, meant some- thing very different to Jesus from what it signified to the disciples and the multitude. "THE STONES WOULD CRY OUT." I When the ass arrived, some of the people put their garments upon it in lieu of a saddle. Jesus mounted, and the procession began. Some went before him and some followed after. The people were familiar with the prophecy relating to Messiah's coming, which declared "Shout, 0 daugh- ter of Jerusalem! behold, thy King cometh unto thee! He is just and having salva- tion; lowly, and riding upon an ass." They were familiar also with the shout they gave and the responses one party crying, "Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord!" and again the cry, "Blessed be the Kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord!" Then came the response, "Hosanna in the Highest!" These different expressions are recorded by the different evangelists. But not all were enthusiastic acclaimers of Jesus. A discordant note was heard. Some of those who had come from the city through curiosity criticised the shout, and wondered why Jesus did not rebuke the people for ascribing so great honour to him. They sent word to this effect to Jesus through his disciples. Jesus made answer that a great prophecy was being fulfilled. The Prophet Zechariah had by inspiration said, "Shout, 0 daughter of Jerusalem," and such a shout must be made. Jesus de- clared that if the multitude had failed to shout, the prophecy would still have been fulfilled. The very stones would have cried out. THE FIRST PALM SUNDAY. I It is customary with some Christians in various parts of the world to specially com- memorate that Sunday of the triumphal entry into Jerusalem. The record tells that on the journey many of the people strewed their garments in the way, as a mark of re- spect and honour, waiting until the animal had passed over them, and then running on before and placing them again. Others brought ferns, lfowers, and grass, and strewed them in the way. Still others, St. John's Gospel tells us, brought branches of palm trees. It was a jubilant procession, fulfilling the prophecy of Zechariah. Yet to Jesus it had a Had feature, as indicated by the account. When the multitude had reached the turn of the Mount of Olives, which brought Jerusalem into view, the Master halted the procession while he looked over the city and wept over it, saying, "0 Jerusalem, Jerusa- lem, that killest the Prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children to- gether, as a hen gathereth her brood under her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your House is left unto you desolate! Verily I say unto you, ye shall see me no more until that Day (nearly nineteen centuries later) when ye shall say. Blessed is he that cometh in the name of Jehovah!" Jesus realised that that day was a turn- ing point with the Jewish nation-that their rejection of him meant their rejection by the Heavenly Father for a long time. It meant that they would be cast off from Divine favour, except a few who would be- come his disciples. St. Paul markedly calls our attention to the fact that this rejection of Israel is not permanent, but only for a time—only until the full completion of the number of faith- ful saints be gathered out from amongst the Gentiles. Then God's favour will re- turn to Natural Israel, and subsequently extend to all the families of earth.— Romans xi. 25-32. t.

CRICKET CHAT. [BY THE TYKE."] Neither Ledbury or Withington were verv well represented when the teams met, on the Ledbury ground on Saturday last, and both sides developed a a pronounced tail. L- d- bury won the toss and opened with Brovvn and Hoult, who made a fair start, 24 :)ing up before Brown returned a ball to Firkins and departed for eight. Hoult onlv 8tay,d till 28, when he was bowled for 17, which included three 4's in succession. This brought Jim Smith and James together, and there was some merry cricket for a time. < James was in an aggressive mood, aiii his first three scoring strokes were 4, 6, 4, and Smith was by no means idle. Tijc result was that the score quickly mourned, but at 71 James was sent back for 26, vrhii h included a 6 and four 4's. After this part- nership had been broken the rest was easy for the Withington attack, Lister and Fox securing the remaining seven wickets for the addition of but 30 runs. Jim Smith was dismissed for 30, top score of tne match, and the tail collapsed, the total realising but 101, after such a good start, too. Lister and Fox each secured four wickets and Firkins one. ♦ Like their opponents, Withington started off well, F H Morgan and Fox putting on 34 for the first wicket against the bowling of Williams and James. Fox was bowled by Williams for 13, and at 46 Hoult, who had relieved James, bowled F H Morgan for a capital 25. The rest was easy, as apart from Fit kins, who knocked up 18, the re- maining batsmen did little, and the venture closed for 75. Hoult secured 5 wickets for 17 runs, Williams 4 for 31, and James (24) was unsuccessful. Eastnor were at home to Froome Valley in the return game, and the Castle men scored a meritorious victory by eight wick- ets. Batting first, the Valley men opened with Bradstock and Higgins, but the latter was caught at cover-point in Winter's first over. Firkins succeeded and a period of steady play followed, but at 18 Bradstock was bowled by Winter. Dent stayed till 27, when he fell a victim to Court through the medium of Rowden. This brought the elder Griffiths and Firkins together, and the pair made a valuable stand, but at the same time neither Winter or Court were easy to score from. The pair carried the score to 70, when Court beat and bowled Griffiths for a meri- torious 27. This proved the beginning of the end, as five runs later the same bowler served Firkins similarly, the batsman having made 31. At 80 Court was credited with further successes, bowling both Hunt and Martin Homes, and then Winter secured the last three wickets, the final total being 89. Winter sent down 19 overs for 46 runs and 5 wickets, while Court bowled one over less and secured 5 wickets for 42. Both bowlers deserve credit for their steadiness, and it was as good a performance as any they have accomplished this season. Maddox being an absentee, Crookes accom- panied Court to the wickets to open Eastnor's venture. Court scored 8 of the first 28 before he was bowled by Hunt, and then with Rowden and Crookes in partnership a lenghty stand was made, Eastnor being well within sight of victory before Rowden was Ibw to Williams for 20. Phillips joined his saplain and the pair rubbed off the runs, and were undefeated when stumps were drawn, with the score at 151 for 2 wickets. Crookes played a fine innings of 70. which included seven 4's, five 3's and five 2's, and Phillips had 34 to his credit. It was the best victory Eastnor have secured over Froome Valley. Colwall were at home to Holmer on Satur- day, and the homesters gained an easy victory by 95 runs. Batting first Holmer fared badly against the bowling of Dagger, who secured 8 wickets for 26 in a total of 83, Spillsbuiy being responsible for the other two wickets. Cripps (17), Welsh (15 not out), and Thorne (10) were the only batsmen to reach double- figures, 20 extras helping up the total considerably. ♦ In reply Colwall amassed a score of 178. Meakin (14), Sanderson (10), and Williams (16), gave the side a fair start, but it was then that Meakin (63) and Dagger (60) came together and there was trouble for Holmer. The tail failed. Cripps and Skipp were the most successful bowlers for the losers. 6

[PROFITABLE POULTRY CULTURE. BY RALPH R ALLEN, Lecturer to the Herfs County Council; Editor of Monthly Hints on Poultry, &c. (All rights reserved.) I HINTS FOR AUGUST. Reference was made last month that the moulting season was about to commence, by this time it should be in full swing. Pos- sibly it will be profitable to consider for a moment this annual change that a fowl passes through. Once every twelve months adult fowls completely cast their feathers, these being replaced by an entirely new set, and this period is termed the moult. Al- though it cannot be rightly said that the birds are ill during this time, nevertheless it is a somewhat trying period, and neglect may have disastrous consequences. A com- mon cause of indifferent winter laying is that the hens have been improperly looked after while they were casting their feathers, making them backward and unable to with- stand the trying condition of winter. This month and next are the natural time for adult fowls to moult, but it is asserted that by good management the process can be hastened, and thus allow its completion in ample time to allow for winter laying. The good management referred to consists of shortening the albuminoid ratio in their feed, and confining them to warm quarters. In a few days birds subjected to this treat- ment will generally begin to shed their feathers, and then the building up for new feathers and for winter egg-production begins. The introduction of a little boiled linseed in the morning mash will help the feather- ing, whilst Colman's Poultry Mustard may now be profitably recommenced. Remember its action is not heating, it is only adminis- tered to aid digestion by its pungency increasing the flow from the salivary glands. Bear in mind the suggestion gi ven last month regarding moulting. The intelligent poultry-keeper, by careful observation, can gather much practical information during this time. All hens that lay well into the moult, which means birds which are casting their feathers as well as contributing to the egg basket, are excellent layers, and can profitably be retained for next year's breed- ing pens. Again, watch the length of time occupied in moulting, some birds take much longer than others. Select only those who come through rapidly for your breeding stock, and by so doing you are assisting to elimate bad strains." Keep on the look out for lice. Their ravages tend to prolong the moulting season, as well as being responsible for many other evils already enumerated. Sexes should be separated during the moulting period, and any bird that you do not intend retaining should be sold or potted before the period commences. Keep on culling your growing stock, never keep a single wastrel. Remember that on the 12th inst. grouse shooting begins, and down goes the price of chickens. Market before then if you desire a return for your efforts. August is a capital month for picking up next season's breeding stock at bargain prices. There are always careless poultry- keepers who have failed to arrange their plans to bring in a constant revenue. Such are now feeling the shoe pinch, and they must realise. But in buying from strangers always be careful to isolate the birds for a few days, and adopt the deposit system. Attention to these small details prevents both loss and annoyance. [Any enquiries concerning poultry- keeping addressed to our expert, Captain Ralph R Allen, Sawbridgeworth, Herts, will be answered through these columns free, but those requiring a postal answer direct, or sending birds for post-mortem examination, must remit half-crown postal order.
