General Coivile's Fate. I MOTOR-CAR & MOTOR-CYCLE CRASH. DECEASED ON HIS WRONG SIDE ) Mujor-Genrral Sir Henry Colvilo, svhile riding a motor-bicycle from Cambcrley to on Sunday, was run into by General Sir n. S. Rawlinson driviug a, motor-car at Heatberside, and thrown violently to the ground. Ho was rendered unconscious, and was conveyed to Brompton Hospital I Sanatorium, about a, mile away. He died early this morninar. The Press Association's Camberlev corres- pondent, in his description of the accident,states thgt Sir Henry Colvile was riding his motor- cycle in the direction of Bisley from Camberlev, and at Heatlicrside corner came into collision ec with a motor-car owned and driven by Brigadier-General Sir Henry Rawlinson. late commandant of theStaft' College at Camberlev, and now commanding the troops at Blackdown and Deep Cut Barracks. Sir Henry Colvil.e was thrown violently to the ground, and when assistance came was quite unconscious. His head was terribly injured, and he passed away without recovering consciousness. Sir Henry Colvile, who was 55, entered the Grenadier Guards in 1870. He was present at the battles oi El Teb and Taiuai, and, in addi- tion to other foreign service, commanded the Guards Brigade, and subsequently the 9th Division, during the South African War. De- ceased was author of several publications including a history of the Soudan campaign, compiled for the War Office in 1887. At the Whit. Hart, Frimley, yesterday (before Aii- Homier, coroner for West Surrey), an inquest was held-on the body of the late Major.General Sir Ilepry Colvile, who was killed on Sunday afternoon in a collision with a motor-car while riding on a motor-cycle. The first witness was ('aptain Maurice Col- vile, a cousin of deceased, who identified the body of deceased, who was 55 years of age. He knew nothing of the accident. Brigadier-General Sir Henry Seymour H. Bawlinsou was; next called. He said, he was driving in his motor-car last Sunday afternoon from Blackdown to Ascot via Bagshot. h" started about two minutes past 4. and reached the cross-roads between 10 and 15 minutes past 4. As he approached the corner, which he knew well, lie slowed downthecar- and blew the horn twice. The turn to the left was invisible owing to a high hedge at the corner, and lie slowed down to between six and eight miles an hour. As the road from Frimley became visible he saw a. motor cyclist travel- ling at a very high speed within a few yards of him, and witness at once applied the brakes. He heard no horn, and was not aware of the deceased's presence until he saw him. The cycle struck the off lamp of the car. Deceased was thrown clear of the car into the middle of the road. Witness at once got down, and ran to his assistance. He found to his deep grief that it was his friend, Sir Henry Colvile, and he at once saw that the injuries were of a very serious nature. He sent for medical assistance. Deceased was removel to the Brompton Sana- torium. The Coroner Can you form any opinion of the pace deceased was going ?—I cannot give you the rate per hour, but he ma-t have been travelling very fast. That- was quite clear from the distance he was thrown. I only saw him when he was a few yards off. How far had you got across the road ?—Not quite half way. The point of impact is clearly marked in the road. If he had been even in the middle QI' the road he would have cleared the car. If he had been on his own side lie would have cleared. lie was thrown into the centre of the road. The Coroner: That is a most important element, in this case showing that you were coming round. The Foreman of the Jury Did you as a matter of fact hear deceased blow his horn —I do notf>ay he didn't. I didn't hear him. The Coroner Your chauffeur cannot tell us any more than you ?—Xo. John William Ellis, employed in a nursery, said he heard the cycle coming, but did not see it. His attention was attracted by the rattle of the machine. He almost immediately heard a smash, and Own an explosion. The cycle was going very fast. The Coroner If you did not see the cycle how do you gather that t—I heard the throb- bing of the engines. I then went to the gate and saw a man lying on the road. Sergeant Mears, of the Camberley Police, said on the evening of Sunday he went to the spot, about 7 o'clock. He hHW a damaged motor-car and motor crcie. He examined the road for marks. and eould plainly trace Sir Henry's car round the corner. At the spot the road was 19ft. 6in. wide. The car had not quite completed its turn. There was a cottage. but the hedge was the obstruc- tion. He saw blood marks at the point of im- pact. So far as he could find there was no eye- witness. Skull Fractured. DrStewart. who was called to the deceased on Sunday afternoon, said he found him lying on a rug on the road unconscious, and he had him removed to the sanatorium. He made a rapid examination and found deceased suffer- ing from a fracture at the ba,scofthc skull. There was also a wound on the front of the right leg half-way between the knee and the ankle, which had severed a large muscle on the front of the knee. He was bleeding from the left ear and the mouth, and there was a contusion on the top of his head, and the hair was full of blood, obviously showing that he had hit the ground with great force. He died the same evening. General Lloyd said deceased left his house on the motor-cycle, and went down the hill at Farnborougli at a terrific pace. A police-constablesaid lie had known General Rawlinson for three years as a motorist. He was a most careful driver. At the time of the accident his car was not over the centre of the road. The Coroner, in summing up, said it was an exceedingly sad case in many ways, Sir Henry Colvile having served his country with dis- tinction. If deceased had been on his right side there was plenty of room. All the jury could do was to say that deceased had died through a wound at the bas- of the skull, caused by an accident: but as they repre- sented the public, it would be only light for them to sary whether any blame attached to anyone. 'i lie jury returned a verdict of "Accidental death," and entirely exonerated General Raw- linson. The foreman added that the jury wished to express the deepest sympathy with Lady Col vile and her family, They also wished to ask the owner of the hedge to get it lowered. Coroner and Motoring Manners. The Coroner here read a telegram sent bv a lir Bradshaw, of 26, Eaton-place, S.W., to General Rawlinson, in which the sender said that one night, on passing General Rawlin- son's motor car in Camberloy, he was greatly struck with the.very considerate courtesy of the general, and offering to give evidence to that effect at the inquest. The Coroner said he was very pleased to hear that there were considerate motorists, because there were too many who made the public hate and detest motor cars and their drivers. He was not. surprised at that, but, there were exceptions, and the present case should be a lesson and a. warning to those who were not considerate. If some motorists would remember that the roads belonged to other people as well as to themselves they would not lie so disliked as at present. (Hear, hear.) The Coroner in conclusion sympathised with General Rawlinson on the sad accident, and congratulated him 011 Iii" own escape.

Death of Lord Battersea. FORMER MEMBER FOR BRECON AND LIBERAL WHIP. We regret to announce the death of Lord Battersea, who died somewhat suddenly at the Royal Pier Hotel, Hyde, on Wednesday morning. Lord Battersea arrived unwell from Over- strand at his town house a fortnight ago, stayed there a night, and then went on to the Isle of Wight. His condition became serious a week ago, and Lady Batterea joined him on Friday morning. Lord Battersea was the first Peer, and as he leaves no heir the title becomes extinct. Born in 1843 as the son of Mr P. W. Flower, of Streatham, Lord Battersea was educated at Harrow and at Trinity-College, Cambridge. He first entered the House of Commons in 1880 as Liberal member for Breconshire, presenting the at that time unusual spectacle of an Englishman representing a Welsh constituency. After the. Redistribution Bill he became member for South Bedfordshire, for which constituency he continued to sit untii 1892, when, alter the Liberal victory in the constituencies—a vic- tory that was in part due to his ovvn work in the organisation of the parry-he became a Peer. A man of distinguished presence and with considerable powers of ready speech, he early attracted attention in the Commons, and in the first Home Rule Ministry he was a Lord eyf the Treasury. Then, in the six years of Opposition from 1886 to 1892. he acted as a courteous and indefatigable Whip. The time was one of peculiar difficulty and stress for the party, but Lord Battersea was able to THE LATE LORD BATTERSEA. (Photo, by Bassano.) I say at the close of the six years that during the whole time he had never had a difference the whole time he had never had a difference or dispute with friend or foe. That was tine to the urbanity of his disposition and to the persuasive energy with which lie discharged his duties. Even after his translation to the Upper House, Lord Battersea was a frequent speaker on Liberal platforms, and put in a great amount of work for the Liberal party, but of late years he has been somewhat less active in politics. Surrey House, the London home of Lord Battersea, was behind its unpretentious front a marvellous storehouse of beautiful object i, which reliected its owner's taste. The collec- tion of pictures is as remarkable for it., catho- licity as for the quality of many of the can- vases. It includes the fa-mons" Golden Stairs and the Annunciation of Burne- Jones, a Madonna and Child by Botticelli, anoth; r by Leonardo dc Vinci, and examples of painters as diverse as Rubens and Whistler, Sandys a.id Bassano. The collection, in fact. was one of the yery finest in London, and included many beautiful examples of statuary and decoration in addition to the paintings. Ladv Battersea shared with her husband the taste for art-collecting on the magnificent scale. In addition to his fondness for art-and his own bent in that direction found expression in the fact that he was a capable amateur photo- grapher—Lord Battersea was passionately- devoted to many forms of sport. There will be very general sympathy with Lady Battersea in her loss. Before her marriage in 1877 she very general sympathy with Lady Battersea in her loss. Before her marriage in 1877 she was Miss Constance Rothschild.
ABERYSTWYTH SENATE'S DECREE. Recreations Stopped Apology Demanded. The Senate of I 'niver.sity College of Wales, Aberystwyth, have resolved upon drastic punishment for the students' conduct on degree day. The breaking up of the congrega- tion on Friday, followed by the refusal to attend the lecture of Sir John Cockburn on Saturday, occupicd the attention of the Senate for several hours, and on Wednesday the fol- lowing notice was posted up in the college :— The Senate in consideration of the action of the men students have reiolved- 1. To close the men students' common- room until further notice. 2. To prohibit, holding of the following college entertainments during the present, F;essit)n -The Christmas dramatics, Celtic Society's reception, St. David's Day cele- bration, the eisteddfod, the college con- cert, Literary and Debating Society's final entertainment, the college athletic sports. 3. To prohibit the 'men students from taking part in any inter-collegiate matches during the session. 4. That the men members of the Students' Representative Council who were in office from 18th to 25th November be prohibited from holding any office in connection with the Students' Representative Council until further notice. L 5. That the men members of the Students' Representative Council who were in office from 18th to 25th November be required to make a full apology satisfactory to the Senate for the part taken by them in con- nection with the proceedings ur Saturday last, and to present it in person to the Senate, and that such apology be handed in to the Senate by members of the Students' Representative Council at 8 o'clock on Thursday evening. The decision to stop the inter-collegiate matches will also penalise Bangor and Cardiff Colleges, with whose teams the matches are pi r»yed. As the common room was closed against them, the students on Wednesday afternoon held a meeting at the Oriental Cafe. Trevor Thomas, president of the Students' Council, presided over an audience numbering over 200. The meeting was held within closed doors, and at the end of two hours was ad- journed without any decision having been reached. The attitude of the students is one of quiet determination to tight for flieir rights, out the decision of the Senate has placed them in a tight corner. What actimo the Senate will take if the apology demanded is not forth- co.ming is problematical. It may take the form of sending down a number of the students, and the prospect of rustication is one which the students cannot view with equanimity. In tile street" on Wednesday morning a group of students espied a country wedding party, composed of three couples, returning arm-in-arm from a visit to the Registrar of Marriages. At once they formed up in the roar, and two by-t wo brought up the proces- sion. Marching to the strains of the" Dead March," they travelled the whole length of the utreet. much to the amusement or on- lookers and the amazement of the bridal party.
PEACE AT BANGOR. The causes of the friction which led to last Saturday's ebullition of feeling by the students at Bangor University College against Dr. Arnold have now been so far investigated that a way to prevent a recurrence of them is in sight, viz., the handing over of the ""utl",1 of the common room t" th • students j themselves, they In coming responsible for the maintenance of order and qnietuess therein. So amicable are college relations now that Dr. Arnold is to conduct the students on an antiquarian rumble to lVnmaonmawr next I Saturday. I

Broccoli. These plants, are si ill making a very free growth,owing ell idly to the warm weather and humid atmosphere of the past few weeks. The plants will, in consequence, be very liable to injury directly hard weather sets in. unless the practice of •'heeling-over" is resorted to. This precaution, although it reduces the size of the curds, protects the jvlanls, and thus provides against absolute failure. is removing about a couple of spadefuls of soil from the north side of the plants, parity raisiug and forcing the steins into this space with a spade from the opposite side, and leaving the '"head" of the plant resting on the surface in a flating position facing to the north. In gar- dens where the plants are more backward, and have not made such active late growth, this method of protection will not be necessary, as under usual circumstances Broccoli is hardy enough to withstand the ordinary cold of winter. The Kitchen Garden. Ih favoured districts the early Peas should, if not already sown, be planted at once, but unless a warm position and one that is pro- tected from east winds later on is a vail:1 ble. the sowing of this crop will be in vain. On a light, sandy soil, in protectei situations, how- ever, no doubt need be entertained as to the result. Continue to plant. l'otitoes ill frames from sets" that have been given a good start in boxes, and that have made both root and top growth. If a continuous supply is needed, more "sets'" should be placed in boxes in order to have them well started into growth by the time they are required for planting. Continue to blanch Endive as required, and as Let will now be getting scarce, the greater will be the demand for the former. Fur- ther supplies of Chives &nd Chicory should be got in, and sowings be made of Mustard and Ci e.-s. I Any necessary work that lias been delayed should in all cases be taken in hand as soon as possible, while the v,ea titer remains favourable. Where digging and ti caching are in progress full advantagCshouid be taken of dry mornings to wheel on to the grdund the different mate- rials, such as the slumps of Bi assicas, tops of Carrots, Beetroot, &c.. which are intended for placing at tile bottoms of trenches. These vegetable remains not only form a valuable manure, but they have a benelicial effect on the ground for a long time. Filbeds and Cobnuts. 11 is too .often the practice in gardens and fruit plantations to assign the least favourable position and the worst portion of the land to what nuts may be grown, says a writer in the "Field." As if the treatment indicated were not sufficient to ensure disappointment, the trees are commonly (-.ither pruned in an iiii- proper and half-hearted manner or they ape left to take their chance, like wild hazels in the hedgerows. Vet where- large, tender, well- flavoured nuts are appreciated these trees reqiure. and pay for. thorough cultivation as I much as any other occupants of the garden. In Kent during the past 200 years or more nuts have been succeestlilly grown, owing to careful cultivation rather than to any special condi- tions of soil or climate. -Huge basin-shaped trees, exi ceding 100 years oi age, not more than 6fl. high but with a spread of branches covering a spaee 15ft. in diameter, yet still in vigorous health and bearing an abundance of nuts in all favourable sea-ons are not un- common there. A general id »a- prevails that nowhere else than in can these big crops be This, however, is ;v mistake. To obtain the best results select laud with a fertile deep, retentive ioam, moist but not water- logged, a good natural drainagebeing preferred. Next, at the nursery cho.»se healthy young trees prepared in the Kcatish style, with stems 12Ü1. t" 18iu ,¡j;h, !J.nd ubl,ul..ix branches spreading Jeaving the centre open, thus giving tlie b.-gjaosli^ "f" t' bowl shape the tree is ultimately to assume, I six branches ai-e shortened to giowth bud* o2l J the outer side, so that the resulting gro>\ h-* spread from the centre in two or three years' tune, twelve main branches .should have b<vtt secured,and these will suffice for the purpose j in All growths from the main stem or the secondary branches must be cut clean out every as the object is to keep each branch somewhat in the condition of a cordon fruit tree, regularly' furnished with fresh bearing shoots Irom spurs or shortened growths from the base to the apex of Crowding must at all stages be avoided, and the of this growth restriction will speedily be seen in the great size attained by the leaves, also in the development of the ¡ nuts. The trees should be allowed a distance of at least 20t't. in the rows, and while th -y are. advancing to their full size, other fruit trees pr bushes of a more temporary character are planted between them, uuless'the ground is cropped with vegetables. Planting Fruit Tress, &c. Apple trees worked on the Crab, and Pear I trees worked on the Pear stock, require plant ing at a greater distance than those worked on the Paradise and (Quince stocks respectively. Standard apple trees should be placed at a rod apart, each way, and standard Pears require almost the same distance an extra 6ft. between the rows will allow a line of bush fruits or Strawberries to be planted- Bush and amici trees of Apple and Pear should not be less than 12It. apart, whilst in the case of hori- zontal or espalier-trained trees the dista ce should he 20ft. Fan-irained trees, including those of Apricots, Peaches, Plums, Pears, Nectarines, and CI1t'I'l'Ù" require a space of 15ft. between each tree, but cordons of these may be planted as close as 2Ft. If a greater dis- j tance than that mentioned be allowed, spare trees may be planted between the permanent especially against walls or fences, and it is advisable to have a few extra young trees to take the place of any that die or become exhausted, particularly in the case of stone fruits. Gooseberry and Currant bushes should stand 6ft. apart each way. while in cases of cordons or gridiron shaped trees against walls the distance may vary from 18in. to 4ft. Hybrid Between Pear and Quince. Messrs ,T. Veitch and Sons have succeeded in raising a hybrid hetween Bergamottc Esperen Pear and the Portugal Quince. It is remark- able that the friit, of some of the hybrids re- semble in form those of the Pear, whilst in others the resemblance is to that of t heQuiDee. and that the Pear-like fruits were ripe in the last week ill October, whilst those that were Quince-like were still quite hard. The flavour of the ripe fruit was not unlike that of the parent Pear. The name proposed for this in- teresting hybrid is Pyroiiia. TohnSedeti, in compliment to Messrs .T. N'eitx-ii aiidSon, clever plant. breeder, Mr John Seden, who affected the cross some years ago. There is a wider difference between the Pear and the Quince than between 1 he Apple and the Pear, yet all attempts to obta-in a hybrid between the two last-named have so far failed. Blighted Chysanthemums. Cultivators of Chrysanthemums are familiar with a. malady which often reveals itself in the unfolding flower-heads, which arrests the growth of the florets, resulting in discoloured, mis-shapen, or half-formed dowers. It has been hitherto supposed that this tr lIble came as the result of frost, damp, or defective vege- tation it is also known to be set down to the attacks of green-fly. It sometime* attacks the heads when they are in the catty bud stage, with the result that the bud fails to open. Mr F. L. Stevens, of the North Carolina Agricul- turaJ Expericnt Station, has discovered that the disease is caused by a fungus which he has named Ascochyta chrysanthem, as on micros- copic examination of diseased fiow.rs and other parts affected be found a rather coarse, much-branched mycelium, which forms a loose floccose weft, visible to the naked eye, and spreading- rapidly. Healthy flower. when ino- culated with the disease, were badly affeeted ten days after. He ha.s no doubt, therefore, that this fungus is the cause of the blight, and tuatbunddity favours its development. No remedy is prescribed. A weak solution of sul- phur-ie acid can, however, be tried, and the effect noted. It is something to have disco- vered the actual cause of the trouble. The Winter Rot of Potatoes. This common disease of Potatoes is nearly always present to some extent on the tubers when in store, and reaches the proportions of an epidemic during hot, dry seasons, says a writorinthe "Gardeners' Chronicle." The tubers only are attacked, and inoculation by spores present in the soil takes place when the tubers are young but. as a rule, the disease is not noticeable when they are lifted, although the mycelium of the fungus is present, in the tissues. A leaflet recently issued by the Board of Agriculture states that as a preventive of an attack of winter rot the tubers should be well dried before storing. Flowers of stilphur sprinkled over them at the rate of two pounds to the ton will destroy the fungus, and nJso hold in check woodiice, &c.. which by their movements convey the spores throughout, the mass of tubers. Potato stores of whatever kind should be well vent ilated. Land that has carried a diseased crop should not beplanted with Pota- toes for some years afterwards. Kainit. at the rde of 5cwt, to Gcwt. per acre, applied in the drills before yilantlpg the tubers, or as a top- dressing before the horse hoe is used for the last time, will help ill preventing atlacLs of this fungu-. t

HUSBAND'S PERIL. Amazing Swansea Case. ATTEMPTED MURDER CHARGE. j Alleged Poissn Draught. WIFE AT POLICE COURT. At Swansea on Wednesday Mary Ann Griffin (22), married, of Clvne Cottage, lJiaekpiil. was charged with attempting to murder her hus- band, Charles Griffin, collier, by administering pobull to him, under circumstances already reported. Mr Lawrence Richards, who appeared on be- half of the Public; Prosecuto: said the husband of the prisoner was engaged as a colliery labourer at Civile Valley Colliery. He met his wife in Loudon three years ago, and married her 15 months ago in the Metropolis. Last June they came to live at lilackpili. There had been occasicm when the husband had to tind fault with prisoner for her inatten- tion to him and for staying out late at night. In addition she had during the last few weeks left him for certain periods and she did not say where she had been. On Wednesday night. November 6th, Griffin went to work at (Tyne Colliery, taking with him bread and treacle and a jugful of tea. About 11 o'clock, as wa- Iii- custom, he ate the bread ani treacle and drank the tea. Immediately after that he became violently sick and was unable to con- tinue his w ork tor a time. He resumed work again about 1.30 and continued until 5.15 a.m., when he returned lie complained to prisoner and she got him some tea and toast. At that time he was suffering great pains and from diarrhoea and about 7.30 he went to bed. At 4.30 p.m. his wife came upstairs with a cup coutuining som" dark :!u!ll and it glass. She said, holding up the cup. This is for you," and holding up the glass, "This is lor me." Griffin noticed that the cup was full while the glass contained but a little, and he suggested his wife should have some out of the cup. She said. No you takeit. It will do you good." He drank some of the contents of the cup, aud J'uutid there was carbolic acid in it. He suffered great pain, and almost immediately became unconscious. When he regained con- sciousness he found that a muffler had been tied round his throat and astrlp had been passed from the back of the muffler and fastened to the top of the bed. His Hands Were Tied. to another muftler with the palms inward. The man was pretty nearly suffocated, and he groaned heavily. Soon afterwards prisoner came upstairs, and Griffin motioned to her to untie him, which she eventually did. Griffin then asked lier what she meant, aiid she said she had tied him up to stop him "jumping about all over the place." Griffin told her, You have given rae carbolic to drink." She replied, "No. why should I do that ?" She j then commenced crying, and went downstairs, and appireiitiv went out. Fortunately for Griffin, a young neighbour named Isaac came into the house, and gave him an emetic, and after he had vomited Isaac smelt carbolic, acid strongly. Dr. Perkins was sent for, and ordered the n an's removal to the hospital. As P.C. Jones was just before midnight taking his patient in a cab to the hospital he met tti- prisoner in the company of a soldier named IRe near the Swansea. Recreation Ground. The officer promptly got. out and arrested prlsouer and took her with him in the cab to the hospital, and subsequently charged her. After the prisoner left her hus- band Sir Richards said she had told a neigh- bour named Mrs Isaac that her husband had taken carbolic acid, adding, "He may say that I have given it to him. He Is bad enough to say anvlhing." Mrs Isaacs tedd prisoner .-he should not leave her husband iusf then, but she said she would be back about 8 o'clock. It appeared also, said Mr Richards, that when Griffin drank the tea he took with him to the colliery a man named Luton, shared some of the contents of the can, and on reaching home li,, too, became violently sick, vomited, and suffered from diarrhoea. At the bottom of- the can Luton observed Some Gritty Powder. Another serious feature of the ca.se was that ,i soJ<lier named George Le e.i me home from his j-ohpent on furlough, on October 19th. On Oci ober ho was at 1 be Star Theatre, Swansea, and there saw prisoner. Shi followed him after the perfori') 'nie, spoke to him, al- though up to their ihev and at her r quest h walked 'i her dowu the Mumhltvs road. she rtJld hui. j she had lost her last. ir.n to ,'flack-pill. She told him her name was Aliss Griffin, that she lived at. i VaHey. and I arranged other meetings, inehnPug a call on her the next day. The next afternoon she met Lee and another man named La.st. who went to hep house about 6 o'clock. At that time the husband was at his work. The three spent the rught. together in front of the lire. Prisoner toid Lee she was very fond of him, and he re- turned the compliment. Griffin, who was on the night shift at the colliery, returned from work eadier than usual and iound two men in the hou:-e. Hea-kedhis wife who thov were and she said. Cousins of dad" (meaning her stepfather I. Griffin said if lie found strangers in the house ag:1in he would o away altogether. In fairness to Mr Kichar.ls said this was the first time he knew the prisoner was a marrieu woman. uu i ne eunestlav t>eior.- th" alleged offence Lee Went to the house of prisoner's mother and prisoner passed him with some blue paper packets. As she passed hi 1I1 she whispered, "Powder." Later he askeol her what. she was going to do with it. and she said she would not tell him then but I would do so later on. Then she comptained to Lee of her husband's behaviour to her and again expressed fondness for Lee, asking whether he would take her to South Africa. Lee. it aopears, was under orders for South Africa. He refused. The next night he was again at the theatre, and saw prisoner. She sat next to him. and seemed to be crying a good deal. He asked her what was the matter, but she would not tell him. They I went out together.and on the way to Blackpill she told Lee J have given him something. I won't tell you what it is." When they got as far tus the Recreation Ground she WAS arrested. It appeared that prisoner had told her neigh- bour, Mrs that If Her Husband Died I she would marry a soldier. The carbolic acid had been purchased by the prisoner at the shop of Mr Moses Jones in High-street, Swansea. When charged the prisoner's reply was, It is untrue, but subsequently she said, "Will has been so nasty to me. I threw the bottle out at the back, and the cup which he had it in out to the front." Next day Sergeant Evans found the bottle. It was then three-parts fuU of carbolic ocid. Sergeant Evans showed it to pri- soner, and cautioned her. She said, Yes, that is the one I bought it yes- terday. I put a little in a cup with port wine for bun." The powders had been analysed, and the analyst would say that the effect of taking them would be con-i-tent with carbolic acid poi-oning. The Evidence. Evidence was then called. The husband, who seemed very much upset, supported the narrative enumerated by Mr Richards. Asked if she h"«.nv questions to put to her husband she said, bursting into Uears, I only want to ask him to forgive me." Mrs be followed with her narrative, and ¡ added that the da.v before prisoner had told her she loved a soldier, adding, "If anything happens to my Will I shall have him." George Lee, a private m the 1st Welsh Hegi. JIwnt, who had been on furlough at Swansea since October 19th. followed with a narrative of his association with the prisoner as de- tailed in the opening statement. The prisoner cross-examined this witness. Ou t lie iii-st night they met she asked him if he did not go to her house and stay till 4 o'clock in the morning. This he denied. He admitted on one occasion giving her a pin- cushion and something in the shape of a heart, which she said she would take to her mother's bOllse so that her husband should not. see it. Did not I show yon the powders before the day at my mother's t—Yes. Did not I say it is real poison, and I intend to use it ?,No. Did not I tell you I had gone into the streets in London to keep him ?—No. Did not I say owiug to the rows with my husband owing to my being on the street and kicking up such capers 1 would leave him— I would not live with him any longer V—No. Did not you tell me it it, was deadly poison one is enough, but if lingering one is not suffi- cient t— No. Mr Moses Jones, chemist, P.C. Jones, and Sergeant Evans having given evidence, Mr Seyler, the pub lie analyst, said he had analysed the vomit, which he found contained a. con- siderable quantity of carbolic acid. He also analysed two of the powders, and found they contained a mixture of zinr: sulrh te, potash, altilli ianiiin. The first constituent was a powerful emetic. Dr. A. L. Perkins said every symptom of Griffin's condition when he examined him was consistent with him having taken an overdose 01 carbolic acid. Dr. Florence Price, senior hous ■ phvsician at the hospital, also said the symptoms were consistent with carbolic acid poisoning. The prisoner on being charged sakl she wished to make no statement. She was committed for trial at the next
