WOES OF THE CAGED [To the Editor of the SPECTATOR.]

Sin,—On behalf of the Scottish S.P.C.A., I trust you will permit me to thank Major Yeats-Brown for his strong indictment of the cruelties inseparable from the performing animal business. How much longer must we wait for the British public to realize the truth of what is so ably expressed In the article referred to ! I should be glad if I might be permitted to offer information to any interested in the efforts being made to minimize and finally to eradicate the cruelties of the menagerie and the circus.—I am, Sir, &c.,

LYNDESAY G. LANGWILL, Secretary. Scottish Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, 19 Melville Street, Edinburgh.
