Why not write to Mrs. Boyd or Mrs. Dransfield (see beauty counselor advert on page 45). TENNYSON AT SCHOOL--(continued from poge 15) The days which were certain to be holidays were the Saints' days. Then Alfred might join in the games, or perhaps he would sometimes have to battle with the "town louts"; but usually he preferred to wander in the hills alone or bathe in the clear brook. In later life he recorded the feelings aroused by these wanderings in exquisite poetry. Many years later, remembering that school at Louth from which he was removed in 1820 to finish his educaction at home, Tennyson said: "How I did hate that school. The only good I ever got from it was the memory of words and of an old wall covered with wild plants opposite to the school window." It was in that room that he wrote one of his memoraMe poems and, even if he had learnt nothing else, we should be grateful for the " love of words " he acquired, for without them English literature would have lost much.

The monthly Lincolnshire Life magazine was founded in April, 1961 with the intention of championing the cause of Lincolnshire by recording its history, folklore, culture, personalities, dialect, art, etc.

The magazine has 'thumbnail' sketches of the history of all the county's towns and many of its 700-plus villages, histories of its major houses and castles and profiles of many of its smaller houses, in private occupation. There are accounts of major and minor incidents in the county's history, augmented through the magazine's correspondence columns and details of the lives of many of the county's personalities both past and present.

By recording aspects of the county's life which were happening at the time but which no longer exist, the magazine now has the only written account of some of these customs or events.
