General Lyttleton, who presided, he was in South Africa throughout the war, and for two years afterwards and could therefore speak of the necessity which existed for the work of the graves fund. It was now necessary to establish an upkeeping fund, because the climate was a very trying one.

and when he left South Africa the fortifications of Ladysmith, which were very massive when constructed, were already beginning to fall into ruin. Resolutions were passed pledging the meeting to support both the graves' fund and the upkeeping scheme. NEXT SATURDAY'S FOOTBALL MATCHES. RUGBY. Gloucester v.

RECEIVING DAY BY DAY New Good's for Autnmn. Hundreds of New Coats. to fclect Vacancv for AND GODFREY. LIMITED, Drapers and Coin pie to House Furnishers, Stroud. THE POPULARITY OF PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT.

Writing in the November issue of "Pearson's Magazine," Dr. Lyman Abbott, the well-known American author, discusses the cau-ses of President Roovsevelt'g wonderful popularity unequalled by any of the Presidents since George Washington. He gives us the American point of here especially instructive "How has he earned his extraordinary popularity? Not by playing to the gallery. Not by trimming his sails to catch the varying breezes. Not by keen discernment of popular tendencies and reflecting this in public utterances or public acts.

Not by phrases with a double meaning, nor by preaching platitudes which mean nothing, nor by adjusting his utterances to the demands of the people he happens to be addressing. Before an audience gathered in the city which probably has the greatest corporate wealth per capita of any city in the country, lie begins his campaign against trusts. Philadelphia, the city of conservatism and of corporate control, he declares his policy of governmental control of railroad rates. In Chicago, mob-ruled' a time, he declares that mobs no less than trusts must obey t-he law and be compelled to do so by the power of the Government if they will not do so voluntarily. To a Republican olub in a Northern city on its celebration of Lincoln's birthday, he declares his belief that the only hope of peace and union lies in a spirit of mutual trust and confidence between South and North.

"He is, first of all, a man of ideals. It is not without significance that a volume, of his essays bears the title American The distinguishing characteristic of a statesman is the possession of an ideal- toward the realisation of which all his efforts are directed. So Bismarck bent all his energy to the unification of Germany, and Cavour to toe emancipation and nationalisation of Italy, and Lincoln to tfhe maintenance of a union of the States in which a free people should be united in a sovereign nation. Roosevelt's ideal cannot be so easily defined. Perhaps the best indication of it is afforded by his favourite phrase a square It is because he 'believes in a square deal that was the enemy of police graft'; he was resolved that the law should not be turned into a club in the hands of a blackmailer.

It is becausa be 'believes in a square deal that he was an ardent advocate of the Spanish-American War the Cubans were not getting a square deal ftom Spain. It is 'because ho 'believes in, a square deal that he per- sisted in appointing some coloured men to office in the South; he would not close the door of opportunity upon any man, black or -white. It is because he believes in a square deal that he advooates Government regulation of railroad rates: the people have not been getting a square deal on the national highways. It is because he believes in a square deal that he recognised the Republic of Panama so promptly; it was his earnest conviction that neither Panama, the United States, nor the world was getting a square deal from Colombia.

SCALDED IN A PURIFIER. FATAL SEQUEL. John Moore (27), carpenter, of 2, Park Viewvillas. Tivoli, Cheltenham, who was severely scalded in a purifier at the Corporation Electric Light Works on October 27th, under circumstanoee. reported in the "Citizen," died at the Cheltenham Hospital at 10.30 on Wednesday night from the injuries he had received.

The man had been badly hurt by steam -which was accidentally allowed to enter the purifier whilst he was at work cleaning it, and was admitted to the Hospital in a collapsed state. HUSBAND AND WIFE. SEPARATION ORDER GRANTED. At the Cheltenham Police Court on Thursday, Rose Carolina Dufton summoned Charles W. Dufton, blacksmith, of Cheltenham, under the S.J.M.W.

Act, 1895 for cruelty. (Mr. A. Lamb appeared for complainant and said it was a very bad case. The couple -were berth young and had only been married a couple of years.

The husband had developed an overwhelming nense of jealousy, and had accused his wife of unfaithfulness. Complainant had left him oncc, but had given him a second trial, but with unfortunate results. When enceinte complainant was struck in the eye and kicked downstairs by defendant. Complainant said she now lived at Little Bayshillterrace, Cheltenham. There "was one child of the marriage.

When married witness and her husband first lived at 16, Victoria-place, Fairview. During their residence here witness was struck by her husband. and within a month of her marriage was accused of unfaithfulness with her brother-in-law. There was no truth in that. In April, 1904, his accusations and blows were continued, and if witness only went outside defendant would say she went with other men.

Meanwhile he refused to go out with her. after this witness left her husband, and he begged her to return, promising to be better to her. Witness went back to him the next day. but before the week was out defendant reverted to hia old habits of blows and abuse. On August Bth, 1904.

witness left defendant again, got work, and lived away from him until September 24th. Defendant in the interim sold the home up. After a little while 'he saw witness and threatened if she did not return he would "do away with himself and the baby." Witness consented to live with him again, and they took a house in Portland-square. According to witness's evidence defendant's reformation was very short-lived. In October last witness arranged to go to the theatre wit'h her mother and sister, and defendant refused to allow her following her down the street, and whilst aware of witness's delicate condition, slapped her across the face two or three times and knocked her down.

On October 23rd defendant told witness that she was trying to kill the baby as she wanted the insurance money." This was followed by another assault. After this witness left him, and was now living apart in consequence of his cruelty. Witness did not know what her husband earned, but he had been in the habit of allowing 'her £1 a week. When well witness could earn a few shillings a week. She asked for the custody erf the child.

Jane Caroline Coates, complainant's sister, with whom she was living, corroborated. Defendant elected to be sworn, and denied the charge in toto. The magistrates found persistent cruelty proved, and granted a separation with the custody of the child, and 10s. a week. Defendant: I shan't pay for what I've riot done.

There being some question as to the possession of the child, Mr. Lamb asked the Bench if it could be entrusted to a man who had been guilty of persistent cruelty to his whom he had sworn to cherish." The Clerk: Did it? They were married at a registry office. No promise of that sort there! (Laughter.) PETTY SESSIONS, THURSDAY.

Sir Edward Elgar, Professor of Music at Birmingham University, on Wednesday night opened a course of lectures on the subject of English Composers, Executants, and Critics. At the outset he said that the new Department of Music was necessarily moving slowly, but he was preparing the way for something definite.

By January 1 would have a useful working library for musical students. The serious forms of English musical art, he proceeded, had no hold on the affections of the people, and were held in no respect abroad. During the last 20 or 30 years we had enlarged the area irom which compositions were produced, and there was a larger public, but the concert halls where music might be heard on a largo scale were not built in proportion. London had set a very bad example, for St. James's Hall had disappeared, and nothing had taken its place.

We 'had a larger number of men and boys, and even infants, now writing mus iC Certainly, so far as the higher branches of music were concerned, the supply of compositions was a in cxc ess of the demand, but a vast number of the manuscripts whioh had been sent to him were saddening. he technical ability of our youngest composers at present was very great. Teaching in our grcal schools was as good as anything in but they found a difficulty in finding appreciative audiences. He looked forward to the time present it would not be commercially successful it would be an every-day tiling for programmes to consist of English works only. It would be possible to make thousands of suCh programmes, but there were no audiences.

As a means of dispelling this apathy he suggested the erection of large halls to sixpenny audiences, works being produced in the same style as now. ROSS.

Matthews, a tramping parinter named John Turner, said to hail from Kington, was brought up in custody charged with stealing two flat irons, value on the 23rd October, the property of Harry John Lloyd, landlord of the King's "Head Hotel, Bridstow.
