Mr.- -J; F. ?: Trefle salid tlie, Laihor policy in conncction with the big land, holders who would not bj'eak up their areas, was to tax them until they .did break them up. They would press on the largest holdings first,. He. .said it was merely a vote catcher. If this was a matter of urgency, why didn't the Government take steps before? The operations of the .

'Lor', ' said the tramp, 'some o' them blank-blanks what works is a blank sight worse orf than them what doesn't, and I can't help feeling sorry for 'em.' If his own story were true, he was tramping from Wyinondham to Wool wich. His boots consisted chiefly of uppers, his rags would have shamed a scarecrow, and one of the rain's...
