Africa that of the fifteenth marquess, Au gustus John Henry, true to the traditions o his house, of which " Aymez Loyaulte " is th time-honoured motto, and of him it might we] be said " non deficit alter." His body has been sent to England for burial with his ancestor at Amport, co. Hants. Some now getting int( the afternoon of life will remember Tenny son's fine lines on the death of Lord Raglan in the Crimea in 1855 and his burial,

Home they brought her warrior dead, &c., as applicable to the event now recorded Lord Raglan was interred with his ancestors and the Duke of Malakhoff, his comrade in the command, sent a wreath on the occasion which was placed upon the coffin.

THE BOTTLED ALE OF BURTON. Bottled ale as a favourite beverage is at least as old in literary reference as Ben Jonson's 'Bar- tholomew Fair,' and Burton ale as the Spec- tator, in which " we concluded our walk with a glass of Burton ale, and a slice of hung beef " but when did the bottled ale of Burton first become famous? I find the following advertisement in the London Daily Post and


General Advertiser of 25 May, 1738, which would indicate that it was then well known :

" To be Sold, by Thomas Ludford, in Essex-street in the Strand, in Partnership with Mess. Bucknal and Hayne, of Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire, Genuine Burton Ale, Brew'd to the greatest Perfec-


Casks,

for. Also in Bottles not less than a Dozen at Is. Qd. (some old of the Beer Kind 8s.) allowing 2s. per Dozen for return'd Bottles."
