Following the disbandment of the lo-
cal branch of the Red Cross Society, a
re-organisation has taken place in con-
formity to the rules and regulations of
the parent league. Mr. F. Irvine Hop-
kins, B.A., has been elected President;
Miss Howison, Secretary; and Captain
H. Dakin, Treasurer. The personel of
the committee is as follows: — Mrs. David,
wife of the gallant professor, J. I. Mac-
manamey, B. A., and Mr. and Mrs. E. K.
Bowden.
. . . .
A letter has been received by the
parents of Private Jack Fiddling, who
was killed in action in France. The
leter, which was posted a short while be-
fore the gallant lad was killed, was sad-
ly prophetic. "Shells are bursting all
round us,' he wrote, and, before this
letter came to hand, he met a hero's
death on the field of battle. Private
Jack Fiddling, in civilian life, was a
first-class carpenter and joiner. He was
a conscientious member of the church
choir, and was Treasurer of teh Wood-
ford Debating Society and in other
spheres was alwasy to the fore. His par-
rents, who are old respected residents,
have sent four sons to fight in the
great cause, and another of the quar-
tette, Charlie, is now ill in a hospital in
London. "Echo" respectfully joins in
the sincere communal sympathy which
has been expressed to the bereaved
parents.

The railway authorities hav approve-
ed of the overhead bridge at Woodford,
and, as the plans are finished, opera-
tions will be commenced very shortly.
. . . .
Real estate has taken an upward
trend, Mr. A. F. C. Murphy reporting
that values are being maintained, and
that firm inquiries are to hand for
suitable allotments. Quite recently, he
has disposed of lots 2 and 3, Sutton es-
tate, and lots 9 adn 11, Woodford estate,
at prices satisfactor to vendor and pur-
chaser. the demand for furnished cot-
tages in this desirable locality always
exceeds the supply available.
