ASSAULT ON GAMEKEEPERS.—Two young men, named Wm Lambert and Richard Thorn, were charged with assaulting Jacob Baggs and Edward Peckham, at Chilworth, on the previous day.—Jacob Baggs, a gamekeeper in the employ of Mr Fleming, stated that he was on his employer's land, between 10 and 1 o'clock, and saw a number of young men, including prisoners, trespassing on the land, which was enclosed. He warned them off, and went to the other end of the wood, and again saw the prisoners in the company of about twenty others. They went out into the road, followed by witness and an assistant, and upon this Lambert drew a knife and stabbed at witness in addition to hitting him on the thumb with the stick produced, leaving a mark. The other prisoners threw stones.—Thorn denied that he threw any stones.—In answer to Thorn, witness said he was one of the party, though he would not swear that he threw stones.

After other testimony, Lambert was fined 20s and costs, Thorn 10s and costs

DEATH OF MRS. H. STEVENS.—Much sympathy was extended to Mr. H. Stevens and family last week when it became known that the death had taken place of Mrs. Stevens, which occurred somewhat unexpectedly last Tuesday morning. Deceased, who was 59 years of age, had been ill about a month, but was much better and her recovery was looked for. The rupture of a blood vessel in the head brought about the sudden end. The family are much respected in the town, where they have lived for nearly a quarter-of-a-century. Mr. Stevens, during this period, has carried on business as a nurseryman, fruiterer and florist at Ockenden Nurseries, and is a sidesman at the Parish Church. There are five sons and two daughters. The funeral took place at the Parish Church on Saturday afternoon, in the presence of many sympathising friends. Prior to the arrival of the cortege the organist, Mr. C.G. Herbert Young, played the following voluntaries:—Marche Funèbre et Chant Séraphique (Alex. Guilmant), Funeral march, "Erotica," (Beethoven) and "I know that my Redeemer liveth" (Handel). [list of those present in the church . . . ] The coffin was preceded into the sacred edifice by the choir, with Mr. W. Knight bearing the processional cross. The Rev. Canon WILSON (Vicar) conducted the service, which included the hymn "My God, my Father, while I stray," and the 90th psalm, "Lord, Thou has been our refuge," whilst the lesson was read by the Rev. S.G.C. STARKY. The "Nunc Dimittis" was chanted as the cortege passed down the church, and the organist played "O Rest in the Lord" as it left the building. The family mourners were Mr. Stevens (husband), Messrs. A.J. Stevens, J.H. Stevens, S.S. Stevens and A.H. Stevens (sons), the Misses Mary and Violet Stevens (daughters), Miss Baggs (sister), and Miss Stevens and Mrs Sanger (sisters-in-law). The hymn "Abide with me" was sung by the choir on the way to the graveside, where the VICAR read the interment prayers. On the coffin lid, which was covered by a full-length cross from the husband, family and sisters, was the inscription:—

ALICE CLARA STEVENS.

Died 8th February, 1921,

Aged 59 years.

Other floral tributes were sent by [listed . . . . ] Mr. Stevens and Family desire, through this medium, to thank the many friends for kind expressions of sympathy in their sad bereavement.—ADVT.
