English Women Baying Farm.
Women In England are buying their

the tremendous work done by women
on the land during the war. The gen
eral feeling Is that there will not he
much room for the common female

the woman who has n little money and
who looks upou farming ns her pro

The Forgetful Parson. ,
Field Marshal Sir Henry Wilson telts
an amusing story of an old West coun
try pnrson who had to hold two serv
ices, one In his own church nnd one
In the church over the moor.
On arriving nt the latter church he
got Into the pulpit and suld he wns
awfully sorry, but he had forgotten
to bring a most admirable sermon
Which he had written.
"Luckily." he continued, "ns I came
across the moor, I remembered n beau
ful story, which I will tell you In
place of the sermon. Er-er well, dash
it, I've forgotten that, too?"
Weuthervnnes seem to date from
early times. According to Ducnnge, the
cock was originally devised as nn em
blem of clerical vigilance. The lnrge
tnll of the cock wns adapted to turn
with the wind. Many churches have
for a vane the emblem of the saints
to whom they ore dedicated. St. Pet
er's Cornhlll, London, Is surmounted
with n key, St. I'eter having the keys
of heaven nnd hell. St. Laurence has
for n vane a gridiron, and St. Laurence
at Norwich has the gridiron with the
holy martyr extended upon the bnrs.
A gilt ship In full sail is the vane upon
St. Mildred's Church In the Poultry.
St. Michael's, Queenhithe, has a ship,
