The Visitation of the Sick
Remarks as last months magazine.

A painted window has been put in the place of the one which was destroyed in the Church, by the fall of the spire. We must say that it is as beautiful a window as we have ever seen, and is an excellent specimen of the advance which the art of glass painting has made in the last 50 years. The present-day artists copy the old style, which is much the best way in all Church work whatsoever, for to go back, is really to advance towards perfection.

The following subscriptions have been received, and may Almighty God accept them: Mr Hathaway (2nd donation) £2, Mr. G. Wooles £1, Mr Bartlett 10/-, Mr John Baxter 2/6, The Vicar (3rd donation) £25, Miss Herbert 17/6. We want about £400 to complete the work and pay what is owing on what has been done, the architect's fees etc. Towards this, as we notified last time, the Warneford Trust have offered£50, if we raise the above sum this year. We appeal to the parish to make a great effort to finish the work this year.

It is a truism which will commend itself to everyone's acceptance, that the world's benefactors are often unknown. They have done their great work, and are by far the largest part unknown even by name to those who benefit by their genius or labours.
It is a truth capable of unlimited and varied illustration, e.g. what a blessing the schools are to this parish, to parents and rate-payers alike. There, for 5 hours every day, the children are well looked after, well taught, and well under control. In this parish we have no school board rate. What those who have to pay that think of it, we can easily imagine ourselves if, in addition to the present heavy rates, we had another, it is impossible to say how heavy, e.g. in London, they began with 6d. in the pound, and now they are over 1/6. And so it is everywhere. There has been a constant increase in the rate, and consequent burden on the unhappy rate-payers. Now there are a good many rate-payers in the parish, yet how many of them there are who forget certain good friends who really befriend them. We allude to the Managers of the Schools, who are not paid officials but give their time and knowledge for nothing; i.e. Mr. Harrison has for many years kept the School books, and acted as Correspondent with the Education Department. Those who have any idea of what this means know it is no light work with such large Schools as ours.
At this season of the year the School Accounts are made up. We appeal to parents and rate-payers alike not to thank the Managers in words, but to shew their appreciation in deed, by subscribing to the Schools. Subscriptions may be sent to Mr. Wild, the Schools.

AYLBURTON

A dance was got up by some members of the Boys' Club on Saturday February 13th, to help pay the rent of the room. All those who attended seem to have thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The music was supplied by Mr. Bevan, of Lydney, and we take this opportunity of thanking him and his friends who kindly gave their services voluntarily. Expenses being paid, £1. 9s.5 1/2d was handed over to the Club Room fund.

Correction. The sum taken from the last Dance in aid of the Club was £2.10s.8d., not £3.6s.0d, as stated in our last issue.
