I MYSTERIOUS DISAPPEARANCE.—The Central r Press Agency says the London police are at present I engaged in an attempt to unravel the mysterious disappearance of a lady and gentleman. On Monday, f the 11th of March, Mr. Arthur Grey, son of Colonel Grey, of Warwick-equare, Belgravia, left his home for j the purpose of. proceeding to his chambers in King's > Bench Walk, Temple, where he is studying the law. f After remaining in the Temple for a short time he, it t has since been elicited, proceeded to the house of General Ward, Talbot-road, Westbourne-park, whence t he and Mrs. Ward travelled by train to Hammer- smith. They engaged a boat at May's boat-house, Hammersmith bridge, for the purpose, as Mr. Grey stated, of rowing to the Cedars at Putney, his father's country house, and on their arrival there the boat was left in charge of a man named Carter. They remained at the Cedars for an hour, and since they re-em barked on the boat nothing has been heard of either of them. The matter was placed in the hands of Detective Sergeant Marshall, of Scotland-yard, who has ascertained that about five o'clock on the following morning the boat was found keel upwards near the bridge. and was returned to May's For the past fortnight Al arshall has engaged a number of boats to drae the river, but no bodies have been recovered. Marshall has also ascertained that one of the oars of the boat, Mr. Grey's bat, and Mrs. Ward's bonnet and handkerchief, tht. latter marked with her initials, have been picked up off the Middlesex shore of the river. Mr. Grey was only 23 years of age, and the lady was twelve years his senior. bWORD SWALLOWING AT THE AQUARIUM.— As regards the sword, on March 9th there was a care- ful examination of the performance by several medical men, in the course of which, when the largi bright sword had been swallowed, Dr. Priestley, who is said to possess a peculiarly delicate and sure sense of touch, felt for and plainly found the point of the weapon far down in the abdomen! How the point of the sword passes the stomach is a problem of some interest, and as will readily be seen, some little difficulty. Mr. lard states that it was the opinion of the medical men present that it was in a similar manner to what is seen if a pocket-handkerchief be laid over a ring formed by the thumb and forefinger, and pushed through m a sac by the point of a pencil. In tbe same way it is supposed the point of the sword carries down a portion of the stomach as an elongated bag among the other viscera. It is, in fact, difficult to see any other possible explanation. Even this is not free from difficulty, and is calculated to encourage strange speculations as to the tolerance of a healthy organism fcr foreign bodies; but it may throw some light on extraordinary displacements in both human beings and other animals, which were never suspected until death revealed them, and which might natural y have been supposed to render prolonged life impossible.—Live Stock Journal. PROPOSED NEW UNIVERSITY.—A movement has fcr some tine been on foot for the establishment of a new university in the north of England, and on Tuesday afternoon a deputation, which included the Rev.
