EGREMONT YOUNG
PEOPLE'S GUILD.


       Mr. Henry HARTLEY was the speaker at the usual weekly meeting in
connection with the Wesleyan Young People's Guild, his subject being "Joseph."
Considering the very unpropiticus weather there was a fairly good gathering. The
chair was occupied by the Rev. James GRAHAM. At the close a vote of thanks was
passed to Mr. HARTLEY for his very able address.

LARGE TURNIPS.


       Mr. Tyson DAWSON, Stoney How, Drigg, is well to the fore with his
hybrid turnips, and we have seen some of his specimen roots, which weigh 28 lbs.
This ought to be a record for the district.

C. M. S. MEETING AT
HAILE SCHOOL.


       On Wednesday evening there was a meeting at Haile School in connection
with the above Society. The chair was occupied by the vicar of the parish,
the Rev. A. H. COOPER, who, after offering prayer, introduced Miss. FLETCHER, a
lady missionary from China. He remarked that she had come all the way from
HINCHLEY, in Leicestershire, to be present at their meeting, and to give an
address on the following day at Workington.

       Miss. FLETCHER then gave an account of her work at Hong Kong, and
afterwards exhibited a number of Chinese curiosities, which she had brought with
her. Her earnestness greatly impressed all present. At the conclusion the
chairman thanked Miss. FLETCHER for her interesting address, and the meeting
concluded with a hymn and benediction. There was a good attendance.

THE UNEMPLOYED IN
EAST LONDON.


       At a time when much thought is being given to this matter, a practical
suggestion may be of service. Last year more than £300,000 worth of foreign
matches were purchased by inconsiderate consumers in this country, to the great
injury of our own working people, so true is it that "evil is wrought by want
of thought, as well as want of heart." If all consumers would purchase BRYANT
& MAYS matches, that firm would be enabled to pay £1,000 a week more in
wages.
