'OOttl1tItt'l paD SATURDAY, DECEMBER 19, 1891. THE WEEK'S NEWS. I (Ft-om Thursday, December 10th, to Tuesday, December 15th, 1891, inclusive,) There is alarming mortality in Belfast from f iniluenza. A revolution has broken out in Honduras I against the Governor of Cholutioo. An Italian steamer was blown np off Genoa on Saturday morning and 21 persons perished. A child, five years of age, was outraged and murdered on Friday on the beach at Brighton. Lord Dufferin has been appointed to sue- oeed Lord Lytton as the British Ambassador at Paris. Mr. Edward Field, the New Yorlt financier, is under arrest for irregularities in bis busi- ness, JVIr. Cadwaliadr Davies, registrar of the I North Wales College, has resigned on being called to the Bar." The Portsea Island Building Sooiety, which has been in existence since 1846, suspended payment on Monday. Mr. Miohael Davitt has issued his address as a candidate for Waterford City, in the place of the late Mr. Riohard Power, Harry Dainton was executed at Shepton Mallett Gaol on Tuesday for the murder of his wife at Bath on the 8th of September. Miss Florence St. John was on Tuesday granted a judicial separation from Mons. Marius, with the custody of the child. 0 At Leeds Assizes on Tuesday James Stock- well was sentenoed to death for the murder of Catherine Dennis, at Linthwaite, on August 21. An Austrian woman by mistake mur- dered her Ion to gratify her avarice. When told whom she had killed she dropped dead. A gentleman about to deposit money in the bank of Messrs. Glyn, Mills, and Co., of Lon- don, was robbed of nearly £ 1,000 in gold and cheques.

The whole of the crew, During the gale of baturday the Enterkm, a large British ship, foundered on the Galloper Sands, off the Sussex coast, and of her crew of 32 hands only one was saved. It is reported that Mr. Justin McCarthy has been served with a writ as sole surviving trustee of the moneys of the Irish Parliamen- tary party, in Paris, at the suit of Mr. Tim Harrington, Mr. John Redmond, and other of Mr. Parnell's followers. A man named William Ponting, who many years ago was confined in a lunatio asylum, on Saturday suddenly attaoked his wife with a poker, inflicting terrible injuries, and then threw his child into the garden, injuring it so severely that it died shortly afterwards. The judges in the Queen's Bench Division have decided that the girl Daisy Hopkins, the victim of the latest Spinning House prosecu- tion at Cambridge, has been wrongfully con- vioted, in that the charge did not contain any offence. She has, therefore, been released. The Press Association is officially informed that telegrams have been received at the India Office announcing that hostilities have broken out in the vicinity of Gilgit, which is garrisoned by Kashmir troops, and where a British Agent is maintained. There has been severe fighting, and several British officers were wounded. I At Barton Hill, near Bristol, on Tuesday two sisters, Kate and Ellen Adams, aged fifteen and fourteen, quarrelled about the prepara- tion of breakfast, and Elleo, it is alleged, threw a sharply-pointed pair of scissors, which penetrated Kate's throat in a vital part, and she died in two minutes, A man named Puymalie and his wife, servants of a retired wine merchant, have been brutally murdered at Perigueux. Both bodies were found in the road stripped of all clothing. It is supposed the murderers were under the impression that Puymalie had in his possession money to pay the wages of the workmen engaged on his master', mansion, in course of ereotion. After a seven days' hearing the Florence St. John divorce suit terminated on Wednes- day in a verdict for M. Marius, the respondent. The jury found that M. Marius had oommitted adultery, but that he had not been guilty of legal oruelty towards his wife. They held, on the other hand, that Miss Florence St. John had not committed adultery with Mr, Arthur Cohen,

RHEUMATISM AND ITS REMEDY. I What is rheumatism ? The dictionary says it is a dull, aching pain." What is the cause of rheumatism F What is the cause of any malady ? Well, there are two diseases. One of them, scrofula, is often inherited; the other, indigestion, or rather imperfect diges- tion, is usually acquired. Rheumatism results from a deposit of oaloareous matter in the muscular aystem-caused in the first place by a mistaken dietary. Scrofula and dyspepsia cause numerous lotions, potions, powders, and to be prepared. These preparations do not end or mend either malady. They never will. But both these scourges, with the will. But both these scourges, with the groups of families of sub-maladies which grow in their wake, must shrink when confronted by anb-aoids. Sub-acids in their most con- venient form oannot be put into a pill-box. The food of the human being cannot be "suitable" unless varied by sub-acid sub- stances of some kind. A chemical analysis of the body of a healthy man will show that acids are present there. The only reasonable way of getting aoidg into the human or any other body is to eat or drink them. The most convenient form to take aoid in is fruit of some kind, The fruits that contain the most convenient aoids are exactly those which are practically denied to citizens—denied by an absolutely rotten society. Yet these fruits are as commom as ditch-water, as easy to grow as blackberries. The chief of them are :— Celery, seakale, asparagus, strawberries, tomatoes, and apples. They cover the calen- der; one or another of them is, or ought to be, in season and in season by the thousand and ten tl,- isand of tons,—Qitr Fields and [ Cities,
Stories for the New Year. THE "WEEKLY MAIL" PROGRAMME. THRILLING NEW TALE, ENTITLED TEMPLES TOWE," A S'ory of the Days of Dick Turplrr, WILL BE COMMENCED IN THE WEEKLY MAIL FOR JANUARY 2ND, 1892. Ta!es of the desperate doings of highway- men have always had a great attraction for English readers. Very many of them, however, had far better have been left imprinted, so mis• chievou3 has been their teaching, and so much harm have they consequently done, especially to the youny The author of "Templcstowe" has, on the contrary, portrayed the adventurous career of Dick Turpin in a way that, though the interest of the reader will be awakened in the very first chapter and fully maintained unto the last, not even the most hair brained of youths will feel the least desire to step into the outlaw'e jnck-boots, don his crape visor, and, mounted upon "bonnie Black Bess," cry "Stand and deliverto travellers upon the Queen's highway, for the narrative will dis- close how at louse two-thirds of the spoil obtained by such gentry went into the pockets of Jew fences, who charged 300 per cent, for bartering stolen jewellery which the highway- men could not otherwise turn into money, and who were generally ready to betray their customers into the bargain when they fancied that it would pay them better to do so, whilst professional thief-takers of the Jonathan Wilde class always knew where to lay their hands f upon them, and only allowed them to remain free in order that the reward! offered for their arrest should grow and grow with every I fresh crime they committed, and so make them each succeeding week better worth the catching. The Dew story will place before the roader continuous stirring scenes such as were the ordinary incidents of men's daily lives a century and a half ago. The perils of the road and of the waysicfe inn, with the despe- [ rate deeds of highwaymen and of footpads, will be depicted in a strikingly realistic man- ner, such as cannot fail to enchain the atten- tion, for we who live in the era of the express train and of that greatest of thief-catcherp, the electric telegraph, can hardly realise the dangers and adventures which attended upon travelling in those apparently rather than really far off times. But moit attractive elements will be intro- duced into the narrative other than the doings of Dick Turpin and Tom King, and the tragic crime of Eugene Aram, the vill-ige school- master and profound scholar, who has been immortalised alike by Bulwer Lytton and by Tom Hood; for a thrilling and most romantic mystery, closely connected with a famous old historic mansion and family in the North of England, will form the central incident around which most of the exciting events of the romance will revolve; whilst a pure and tender love story will afford a pleasing diver- sity from the more tragic and startling inci- dents of the tale. We will only add that a healthy, simulating, and moral tone will run through "the entire nctr' ralive, and that nothing which is base, mean, or cruel tvill be held up far the admiration of the reader. COMPLETE TALES BY POPULAR AUTHORS. Stories by authors who are favourites with tile public are sure oj a welcome. When we see the nase of a popular novelist we in- stinctively call to mind something in his slyle, or characters, or plots which has tixod itself in our remembrance, and we desire to see his newest story, if only tor the purpose of making a comparison. • Our readers will be pleased to know that in our desires to maintain at a high level the attractions of our Fiction Columns we have arranged to publish a New and Original Series of Complete Tales hy Popular Authors. A COMPLETE TALE WILL APPEAR WEEKLY. THE OPENING STORY OF THE SERIES WILL BE PUBLISHED IN THE WEEKLY MAIL OF JANUARY 'iND, It is from tba f-en GEO. R. SIMS- AND IS ENTITLED "That Act of Parliament." The Story is told in its Author's happiest manner, and within short compass comprises sufficient of plot, love, and sensation to form a basis for a much larger work on conven- tional lines.

OUR LAWYER. Conducted by a Barrister-at-Lavv. Legal questions must be stated fully and clearly, and a full copy must be sent of any document on advice is sought. All communications must be endorsed LEGAL," per Editor, WEEKLY MAIL," Cardiff. MASTER AND SERVANT,—" D. J. T." (Brecon) is advised that the death of the master put an end to the ser- vice, and the men can only recover wages up to the date of his death. If the executors had continuEd to curry on the business the men would have been entitled to notice of dismissal or wages in lieu thereof. I Hltsbasd AND WIFE.—" Young is advised not to give up her wedding and keeper rings to her husband. They are her own absolute property, and he is not entitled to have them. He must be a very mean man to ask for them. LANDLORD AND TENANT.—" Ignoramus" t.llomch- Irgjdu) is advised that a landlord is not bound to do any repairs unless the lease or agreement of tenanev contains a clause expressly binding him to repair. If his agreement contains such a clause, we advise him to give notice to his landlord that unless he does the necessary repairs forthwith an action will be brought against him to recover damages for the breach of the agreement. The neglect of the landlord to repair does not justify thd tenant in refusing to pay the rent or treating the tenancy as at an end. If he does not pay his rent, probably the landlord will distrain for it. RECEIPT FOR LEGACY.—" Executor can obtain from the Post-offiee, free of charge, a printed form of legacy duty account, upon which the legatee will give a receipt for his legacy, less the dutv payable upon it. CLAIM TO PROPERTY.—" Troubled (Neath) may have some little difficulty in substantiating his claim to the property, if it is disputed, as he cannot find the title deeds. We think he will do well to instruct some solicitor to take the necessary steps for getting possession of tho property-the possession of the mortgage deed will certa nly be greatly in his favour. If his father was in possession of the property or ia receipt of the rents up to the date of his death, that; will be evidence of his title. HUSBAND AND WIFE. G. M." is advised that tha money and furniture left to his wife by her deceased father is her own separate property, and is not liable for his debts. If he wishes to sell his furniture to her the only safe way is by an absolute bill of sale, d'lly registered. This would make it safe against the claims of his creditors. EXELCUTOIRSHIP* Quest" (Newport) is advised that the executor of the will of the deceased executor is entitled to act in his place. PURCHASE OF CLOCK.—" J. F. M." (Swansea) is not entitled to have the clock exchanged or his money returned. He must m'lke the best of his bargain. LOAN ON PROMISSORY NOTE AC.—" Dickson" (Pembroke) will have to sue in the High Court if he decides to take any proceedings for the recovery of the money lent by him, as no action can be brought in the county-court where the debt exceeds He would not be able to conduct the proceedings himself, but; would require the services of a solicitor. If the borrower should be made bankrupt, our correspondent would be considered a secured creditor to the extent of the value of the les,e deposited with him by the debtor. It would be better to have a written agrae- ment of deposit of the lease, in order that there may. be no room for dispute as to the purpose for which i6 was deposited. If the saleable value of the lease is less than the amount owing, he would be entitled to prove his debt, and, after giving credit for the value of the lease, take a dividend on the balance. Ha could not get a dividend on the whole amount of his debt without first surrendering his security to the trustee. MISSING SAILOR.—" M. M." (Swansea) is advised that neither the captain nor the owners are under any liability to discover the whereabouts of the missing man. Weadvis him to write to the British Consul at the port in question, giving him full particulars', and prob.ibly ti,t official will get some information from the authorities of the hospital. MARRIAGE.—" Doubtful" is informed that the feed charged by the clergy upon marriages.are not unifoim, and, therefore, he had better direct his inquiry to the clergyman of the parish where he expec s to be married. Two witnesses are necessary; there is almost sure to be some person present "besides the clerk who can sign the register as a witness. LANDLORD AND TENAKT.—" L. A. W." (Cardiff) is advised that the only manner in which the rent can be re- covered is by an action in the county-court. If the tenant had remained in possession until the rent became due the landlord might have followed and distrained upon his goods at any time within 30 daya thereafter; but as he left before it became due the landlord has not that right.

STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS.—" H. A. T." CNeath) & advised that the promissory note of which he sends u* a copy cannot now ba sued upon, unless he is in pos- session of some written admission of the debt dated within the la3t six years and before February 8, 1 £ 90. It no *ueb written admission waa given williin six session of some written admission of the debt dated within the last six years and before February 8, 1 £ 90. It no written admission was given within six years from February 8, 1884, when the last payment: was made, the right to sue for any portion of the money stiil owing is barred by the Statute of Limita- tions, CLAIM TO ANNUITY.—" G. W." is advised to instruct some experienced solicitor to bring an action in the county-court to enforce his c'aim, if the society decline to grant it. The opinion he quotes is alto- gether irrational, and has evidently been given by some person who has'not taken into account the facC that the principles of equity must be considered ill dealing with a question of this kind. Similar casfS have been decided over and over again on the lines which we laid down in our previous answer. Whoever he gets to act for him will require a copy of the rules of the society. STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS.—" E. M." (Canton) is advised that a debt owing upon a promissory note payable upon demand, upon which no payment is made on account of principal or interest, cannot bs sued, u^on after the expiration of six years from its date, unless within that time the maker of the note has signed written acknowledgment of the debt, in which event an action may be brought within six years from the date of such written acknowledgment. TITHB RENT-CHARGS,—" Farmer" (Swansea) is advised that if his lease, made before the passiug of the Tithe Act, 1S91, binds him to pay tithes, the new Act does not relieve him. The only difference the Act makes in such a case is that the tithe is collected from the owners of the land and paid to him by the occupier- The Act was passed on the 26th of March, 1891, and it provides that every contract between an owner and an occupier of lands made after the passing of the Act shall be void if it provides for payment of the tithe by the tenant but where the lease or contrao& of tenancy was made before the passing of the Act. the occupier, though relieved from paytf ent of tithe to the collector, remains liable to pay the owner any such sum fts the latter has properly paid on accoanf of the tithe which the occupier is liable under hia contract to pay. The owner is only entitied to charge. the occupier with the exact amount properly paid by him, and not with any costs, &c. MASTER AND SERVANT.—" Christopher Columbus'* (Merthyr) has no remedy against the assistant whom he engaged in November to commence work in December at a yearly salary, and who three days before the time when he ought to have commenced his duties wrote saying he had determined not to do so. If the agreement had been in writing and properly stamped, he might have brought an action for damages. Bkcovkry ot LOAN.—" Dickson" (Pembroke) must issue a writ for the recovery of the money before the promissory note is six years old, unless the borrower will make payment on account of principal or interest before that time, or will sign a written acknowledgment of the debt, referring in the clearest; possible terms to the promissory note. Unless one of these courses be adopted, his right to sue for the debt will become barred by the Statute of Limitations at the expiration of six years from the date of the note. Although his right to sue for the debt will become barred, his right to retain the lease which was depo- sited with him as security will not be affected but IS bare right to retain a document is not of much benefit. If the borrower becomes baukrupt, our correspondent will not be able to get a dividend on the whole of his debt unless he gives up his lease for the benefit of tHe creditors, but he may prove his debt, giving crelit far the selling value of the lease, and take his dividend on tbeTmlance. At any time within six years from the date of the deposit of the lease he may bring an action to compel the borrower to assign it to him by way of mortgage, and if the borrower becomes bankrupt ho will have a similar right against the trustee. In either action he would require the services of a solici- tor. WILL.—" X. Y. Z." (Cardiff) is advised that if a man makes a will while his first wife is living and she afterwards dies and he marries again and then dies without making another will, he will be considered as intestate. Marriage absolutely revokes a will. In such a case the widow would be absolutely entitled ta one-third of the personal estate of the deceased, and to receive one-third of the rents of his real c&ta?« during her life, unless her right to receive ths ssme had been barred by any declarations eoniNljood in the conveyance to him. The remaining two-thirdse £ the personal estate would be divided among all the children of the deceased in equal shares, and his real estate would descend to his heir^aW*w» subject to the widow's right, to receive one-third oli: the rents during her life. Freehold and copyhold are real estate leasehold property, money, goody, shares in limited companies, &c., are personal e&t.&fe.
