FKW parish churches can compare in size and architectural beauty with that of St. Mary
Magdalene, Taunton. The tower, which is 163 feet high, is claimed tb be the second tallest of any parish church in the country. It contains a magnificent peal of twelve bells and a carillon with a repertoire of twenty-one tunes, most of them being of a secular character. The church is sometimes spoken of as the Cathedra! of West Somerset, and indeed in size and structure it more resembles a small cathedral than a parish church. The services are of a cathedral character, and the pulpit is constantly occupied by clergy from surrounding parishes and even further afield. Thomas Cranmer , the renowned Archbishop of Canterbury, was Archdeacon of Taunton from 1522 to 1533.

An Appeal on behalf of THE SAILORS'HOME AND REST, CUMBERLAND BASIN, HOTWELLS,
Bristol, by Mr. F. A. WILSHIRE
(From Bristol) .
THE Home is a branch of the Seamen and Boatmen's Friend' Society. For nearly sixty years it has been working in Bristol for the welfare of the men who spend their lives on the sea and the waterside. It is interdenominational in character, and seeks to give a helping hand to seamen of all nations. Adjoining the Home is a large hall which is the centre of active mission work. Tho services are attended by the families of seamen and boatmen living in the neighbourhood, and recently the whole crew of a ship was present. Services are also held aboard ship.
