Sir Frederick Milner We record with regret the death of

Sir Frederick Milner. He sat in the House of Commons for a Nottinghamshire division for sixteen years, retiring in 1906 on account of deafness. But the good work for which he is remembered with affection came to him during the War when he devoted himself to the cause of the disabled sailors and soldiers. He founded the first hostel for the shell-shocked in Hampstead and later started the well-known Enham Village Centre, near Andover, which, with the similar undertaking at Papworth, is now established on a permanent basis. We have also to record the death of that enthusiastic and accomplished lady, the Countess Martinengo-Cesaresco, who had done so much to bring the best minds of England and Italy into friendly contact. Her books on the heroes of the Italian movement of liberation were widely read, and she was for many years a valued correspondent of the Spectator, especially upon the treatment of animals.
