The work of this Society during the past year has been one of steady progress. The roll of members has been increased, and the finances augmented. A large number of high-class lectures and addresses have been given in Portsmouth and various towns. Papers have been read and debates initiated in various political debating and other Societies, and no means have been left untried to make Vegetarianism known and respected throughout the whole county. Cookery demonstrations and specimen meals have been had, and were much appreciated. A lending library for the use of members and-inquirers has been founded containing many of the Classics and Text Books of Vegetarianism, and has been found very useful;. Several groups of workers have been formed for independent action, but affiliated to the Central Committee, and the prospects of this County Society were never better. Our chief difficulty is the lack of voluntary helpers to cover that vast field of good work which spreads itself so temptingly before us - a harvest ripe for the garnering, and which wants but the reaper and gleaner to give an unmeasurable reward.
