In a recent issue of the Spectator I drew attention

to the excellent work of the 1820 Memorial Settlers' Asso- ciation, whose London offices are at 133 Piccadilly. There is a new category of applicants with which the Association is prepared to deal, Public School boys between the ages of seventeen and twenty, having a capital of £1,000. They are provided with three years' free training ; one rear at one of the Association's training farms and two years with a South African farmer. I am convinced that in the future we shall witness a great development in the emigration to the Dominions of British Public School boys, especially of those endowed with grit. How much preferable would their lot be overseas as farmers, once they have leanit local conditions, than in occupying minor positions in overcrowded offices at home.
