An amusing tale Is told of ths Macella, wife ot Sir de Tlch- borne, who had been ill for some within a cerlath radius. For, many years in Berkshire vicar ot tile parish ivas Uia host of mas pudding ot every poor family I Vear5' Realizing thr.t slie had not to lire, and knowing tooH tho penurious leanings ot her Itega lord, she asked him for a snail -Ecuuest. the privilege of leaving a dole of bread to all who should ask for It annually. nrafty Sir Roger readily agreed, ____j her that ha wuulri dedicate to ler charity as much, land as she'couh walk about over while a brand of pine was burning.

After evening service tho parishioners wouM go to I tbD TiciTSsC, "where au entertainment was given and refreshments ot bread, cheese and beer provided by the will ot a member ot the parish who had al- ways enjoyed the gatherings. A custom -which had Its origin In 1 the will ot two caused quite a lot of scrambling In n certain town In England.
