Earlswood, the National Training Home for the Feeble minded, is the pioneer institution in the work of training these sadly afflicted members of the community, and is a "home" in the truest sense, in that all, officers and staff, are actuated by kindness and true sympathy, exemplified in patient. loving care for their helpless charges. It has been brought to the highest state of efficiency by sixty-four years' experience, is still in the van, and ranks among the noblest efforts of our many philanthropic objects. Earlswood is not intended for the insane; if admitted, such cases must not be retained; nor are pauper cases 1eceived, those chargeable to the rates being by the rules and by-laws totally disqualified. Although under State inspection, no grant or aid of any description is received. It provides for the middle and professional classes, also the wealthy, and patients are admitted on payments ranging from 500 guineas a year or more to those specially selected cases, which are received for remedial treatment, at the rate of 1 guinea a week, including clothing, there being no extras. There is also a charitable foundation, provided by the subscribers for those unable to pay, by which eligible cases may obtain admission, being elected for a period of seven years by the votes of the subscribers, either free or with part payment towards cost, according to the circumstances of the parents. Full information and instructions can be obtained cf Mr. H. Howard, the secretary, whose connection of nearly forty years with this work gives him the experience that is most belpful in advising as to doubtful cases. His office is at 36, King William-street, London Bridge, and he gladly gives personal attention and advice to all inquirers.

The report of the actuary on the quinquennial valuation of the Royal Exchange Assurance, the 31st Dec 1910. states that life premiums show an increase of £205,737 48. 1ld. The life assurance fund has increased by £509 059 19s. 5d. The valuation discloses a surplus of £383,418 93. (including £32,683 49. 10d. accrued interest). The surplus would have amounted to £429,418 98, had it not been for the necessity of writing off £46,000 for depreciation. Deducting acorued interest from the surplus, there remains a sum of £350,735 4s. 2d, which is available for division. Of this sum oneseventh, or £50,105, belongs to the proprietors, and the balance, ie, £300 630 4 2d.. to the participating policy-holders. The annuity surplus (after deducting accrued interest) is £12,060 11s. 1d. The last five years has been characterised by great development of new bu iness (both life and annuity), and the quinquennium has yielded exceptional profit. It is gratifying to be in a position to recommend that the bonus allotted to policy-holders should be considerably increasel, and also to report that there is every reason to expect good results in the future.

Queries

32. Repeated. APPORTIONMENT OF INCOME-Mr. Chandler's view differs from that expressed in Buckley on Companies, 8th edit., at p. 582, where it is stated : Inquiry as to the time when profits were earned by the company is immaterial as between tenant for life and remainderman, their rights are determined by the time not at which the profits are earned by the company, but at which they are by the action of the company made divisible among the members. The adoption of Mr. Chandler's system would in many cases work very unfairly; assume in the case given that the tenant for life the bad purchased the Great Western Guaranteed Stook on 23rd Feb. and died on the following day, his representatives would have been entitled to the whole of the divide d paid on the 27th Feb. and nearly a third of that paid in August, while the remainder. man would in effect have paid for the February dividend in the purchase price, the purchase being assumed to have taken place the DISSATISFIED. day before the stock was examined.

A. has built three new 2. PUBLIC HEALTH ACT 1875, s. 23. houses and the nearest main sewer is about 300ft. away. The rural sanitary authority have required him to connect his drain (9ir. diameter) with their sewer, there being no existing cesspool, or land suitable for one at hand available. Can A. call upon the authority to contribute any and what portion of cost of making the drain other than the part within 100ft. of the houses? Does the proviso at the end of the section only relate to cases where "auch sewer" (i.e., within 100ft. of the houses) in fact exists? Assuming A. has no claim against the rural authority for contribution to the expenses until the claim is " taken over," what are his rights to contribution when the taking over SUBSCRIBER.

3. SOLICITOR-COSTS-CASE WANTED. -I remember seeing a short time ago a case in which it was held that a solicitor who undertook to charge his client a fixed sum for bringing an action, and which case he was afterwards successful in winning, was not entitled to retain the taxed costs in addition to the sum agreed to be paid by his client. I think the case came before Mr. Justice Ridley, but am unable to find it. Can any of your correspondents give me the name and reference of such case ? S..

PETTY SESSIONS-RELIEVING OFFICER-APPEARING FOR GUARDIANS.-In reply to Mr. Hamilton's query on page 63, sect. 68 of 7 & 8 Vict. c. 101 provides that clerks and officers may conduct proceedings before justices at petty sessions on behalf of any board of guardians if duly empowered by such board, although not certified attorneys or solicitors.

ALL parties seem to be agreed as to the principle of the Insurance Bill introduced by the Chancellor of Exchequer in the House of Commons, but a complex measure of this description, containing, as it does, eighty-seven clauses and nine schedules, is bound to raise considerable difference of opinion as to detail. Naturally the success or otherwise of a scheme of this description must depend largely upon actuarial upon actuarial considerations with which we cannot attempt to deal, and there is no doubt that in its course through Parliament many important amendments and alterations will be necessary before it can be placed upon the statute-book. The imposition of a compulsory system of thrift is undoubtedly for the good of the classes coming within the purview of the Bill, but, at the same time, although simplicity of collection is an excellent principle, care must be taken that too large a burden is not placed upon any particular class. It would seem that both parties are anxious that proposals of the nature contained in the Bill should pass into law, but it is only by careful and well-thought-out criticism that a fair and workable scheme will be obtained.
