The handsome pillows and gates erected at the entrance to Seagoe Church as a memorial to the men of the parish who fell in the Great War were dedicated at a special service on Sunday afternoon by the Dean of Connor (Rev. H. R. Brett, M.A.). The gate piers are of Portland stone worked to Gothic. design in keeping with the architecture of the Church, and the gates are of wrought iron, also, of Gothic design. The piers stand 12 feet high and are about two feet square with a buttress at each corner, and finishing at the top with a square spire with carved terminal. The front face of each pier is richly moulded and carved, having a panel of polished red granite, upon which are engraved the names of the following men belonging to the parish who laid down their lives in the late war-

But the memorial they had erected to their memory was indeed a very worthy one, and they had put it in a place of honour, a place of prominence. It was a memorial of which they and their children in the years to come would have no reason to be ashamed. It was now nearly seven years since the news came to them that the madness, which had processed the German people for many years, had assumed an acute form, and they were called upon to defend their homes and their liberty.
