EXTRACTS FROM REPORT.

During the season 60 Board Schools have been visited, and when it is estimated that never less than 100, and more often 200 and 300, children are addressed each time, it will give some idea of the important place this work ought to occupy in our movement.

Several grants of literature have been made to the local Vegetarian Societies. A Certificate for the Gold Medal was awarded for the Literature stall at the East End Exhibition, People's Palace, Mile End Road, E., and a Diploma for the Silver Medal at the Cookery Exhibition held at Niagara.

The number of Members and Associates added to our list is small this year, but when it is borne in mind that there are now some 12 local Societies in different parts of the Metropolis, all striving to add fresh names to their particular branch, we need not be surprised that in this respect the Central Association suffers.

Judging from the amount of correspondence sent out and received, a great number of people have been approached on the subject, with what, result remains yet to be seen, for during the, past year 3,442 letters, post cards, and telegrams were received, whilst 21,564 letters, post cards, parcels and telegrams were despatched.

Representatives on V.F.U. Committee : Regular, Mrs. McDOUALL. Alternative, Mr. G. A. SMITH.
