CUBE FOB HICCOUGHB.- While dining at a friend's house the other day, says a writer in Truth, one of the party was attacked with hiccoughs, which wore cured in a novel fashion. A knife was put into a glass of cold water, and then he was told to drink a drop or two of the water slowly, looking, at the same time, at the point of the knife under the water. The cure was immediate. A GHASTLY STORY.âA servant man, with a horse and cart, went into Limerick from Ballyadam, to buy a coffin for his late master, Mr. John Byan. He did not return to the house, and on search being made the coffin was found not far from the house, broken, and it is said blood-stained. There was no trace of the servant man or of the horse and cart. THE LICENSED VICTUALLERS' INSTITUTION.â The annual ball of the Licensed Victuallers' Institu- tion, supported by the licensed victuallers of London for the succour of their aged, infirm, and indigent brethren, was held at St. James's Hall; and, judging from the members present, the funds will have largely profited thereby. The past twelvemonth was the jubilee of the asylum, and never in any equal period has the amount of subscriptions been so large. A sum of £ 8900 is required annually for the support of the establishment; and at the close of the financial year the amount raised was no less than XIO,725 14s. There are 170 separate houses for aged couples and single pensioners, and the total number of inmates is now 210, all of whom receive weekly allowances in money, besides coals, medical attendance, and every needful comfort. The present chairman is Mr. Edmund Bus. and the chairman elect is Mr. W. Rolls.
