PrinceiChristian made the presentation. By permission of the Duke and iDucheFis of Sutherland a drawing-room meeting was held at Stafford House to further the objects of the Normyl Treatment Association. The Bishop of Chichester presided, and said that to his mind they had found in the Normyl treatment for alcoholism somethiug for which they had beea looking a long time. Six villas at Corn greaves, Cradley Heath, Staffs, in which eleven persons had been nearly suffocated by noxious fumes coming from subterranean fires in disused colliery wotking*, were.declared unfit for occupation by the sanitw-y auUaaritiefi. The tenants left &t onces. Kepresentatives of the Admiralty, including Sir Edward Rahan, Director of Works, and Admiral Ommaney, of Portsmouth, visited the new deep-water dock under construction at linmingham, near Griniaby. The dimensions of the dock are such that ve-sels of the Dreadoought class could enter or leave at any afcate of the tide. Mr. Gautrey related at the London (County Council Education Committee meeting that before a proposed teachers' room in Camberwell had been erected the furniture arrived, men had been to lay the linoleum, and others had called to fix the blinds and left promising to eanagain when the building was erected.

OUR LONDON LETTER. [J'roni Our Special Correspondent) London welcomed King Edward loyally on Saturday on his return after an absence from England of more than two months. It had been expected that the Royal train would arrive at Victoria Station at six o'clock, and wis a large crowd waiting a good half-hour be- fore that time, while people lined the route all the way to Buckingham Palace, patiently waiting for a glimpse, of his Majesty. The waiting time was longer than had been ex- pected, owing to an alteration in th- time ,f arrival at Dover. When the King did at r drive aiorg in his open carriage he v cordially cheered, and it was much sat i-faction that he Appeared ■> ■> exeoileni U.-alth after his holiday. T; • 1 report .•suues that his Majesty bL, <:< ™vpat b<:jtfiit from his stay at Bui; ■. i his tour in the Mediter-, Aeropnnc.3 a-r-e in the air just n< ;n one senso, any rate—and a few day? p. licily '.A As g ven to a remarkable »<■;«•• v :,f boomerang" machine, invented bj • x officer of the Royal Eagineers, Lieut. DM.1. It was stated that he had in part solved the secret of the soaring powers of the booaw- rang, and had constructed a. machine upon the prineiple of that extraordinary weapon. It was said, too, that the new invention had. already accomplished a circular flight of over twelve miles in extent. The writer of the article declared that the aeroplane was superior to the Wright machine, and that that was the reason why the War Office ha-d made no endeavour to engage the services of the Americans or to .acquire their machine. Sndderly, however, the story proceeded, L:ut. Dunne severed his connection with the bl.,10011 factory, and so it appeared that his sc vice's and those of his aeroplane were lost to the country. It js u sensational story, only, unfortunately, the inventor has promptly de- r.ied one or two ,.øf the statenfents which had been made about his machine. He declared that the story of its flight of twelve miles is "all bunkum," und that it is "sheer bunkum" to say he has even partly solved the secret of the boomerang. He has, it is true, severed his connection with the balloon factory, but he is still on the best of terms with the autho- rities, and he also says that "so far as aero- I planes have gone, there is nothing to beat the Wrights' It is interesting to read Lieut. Dunne's statement that he communicated his idea for an aeroplane to Mr. H. G. Wells just as he was starting for the South African War. Mr. Wells advised him not to part with the in- vention, but to work it out himself. One wonders whether this was the inspiration of Mr. Wells' thrilling novel, "The War in the Air," which came out last year. In that book there is a wonderful picture of the awful de- vastation which may be wrought by aerial warfare, which, makes one hope devoutly that if it is a prophecy it is one which may for ever remain unfulfilled. There are plenty of aeroplanes in Mr. Wells' book, and those used by the Japanese are the deadliest and most sinister of the lot. The "boomerang principle" is a milk- rol-iviat-er affair to those weird and terrible machines, and I hope they may never fly through my dreams. In spite of other attractions, Earl's Court is never likely to lose its popularity while it can offer such an exceedingly interesting show as that which is now open at the Golden West and American Industrial Exhibition. The Wild West is there in force this year- Indian braves, squaws, cowboys, cowgirls, bucking bronchos, lassoes, and-yes, gcalps I Real human scalps, on the scalp-shirt of a real war chief, who rejoices in the name of Red Shirt, and has long since become a peace- ful member of the society. The whole show, it goes without saying, is most excellently managed, and visitors are able to see "th noble Rod man" at work, at play and in battle. The cowboys show what life on a ranch is like, and a stirring spectacle it is. Besidesthesp. special attractions Earl's Court has all its writer familiar entertaining, indus- trial and popular features. I There is a saying that all good Americans hope to go to Paris when they die. Most of them, however, seem to be determined to get in a visit to London before that event takes place. Already the great rush of Trans- atlantic visitors has begun, and it is esti- mated that there are already twelve thou- j sand Americans in London. But the holiday- makers are not Americans only. French and Germans are here in numbers nearly as large, and there are thousands of Colonials, and an army of sightseers from every coun- try in Europe. Though the season is only ( just beginning, visitors are arriving at the i rate of twenty thousand a week. If the next three months bear out the promise of the I last week or two the season will be a record f one for the number of foreign and Colonial visitors. The Franco-British Exhibition last year was a splendid advertisement, and London is in a fair way to becoming the pleasure-centre of the world. It is stated that the price which will have to be forthcoming if the Holbein picture, 1 "Duchess of Milan," is to remain in the I National Gallery as the property of the nation is £ 72,000. The Government has given ^10,000 towards this sum, and the com- mittee of the National Art Collections Fund j are hoping to raise the very big balance of X62,0,00 by subscriptions. The time for com- pleting the purchase is very short, and it leerns doubtful whether subscriptions will come in fast enough and big enough. There are some people who are not at all convinced that it is necessary for the nation to have the picture—at the price- It is a mio-ificent work, ,o £ course, and at would be something of a reproach to Britain to "4et it go abroad j or into j$$*ate ,collection, but still £ 72.000 } is a lot '«f< £ §jpggr Jpr » ■picture, ewen la J¡ke. )H)1 ¡e i; ■ f t J> It seems that the Trustees of the National ] Gallery have known for something like a yesr that there was danger of losing the picture, and it might then have been echoed by them for a sum considerably less thru r-uio which is now put upon it. The of fblk sold it for X61,000 on the \rst of this month, so that already £ 11,000 n ::e addpd bo its price. The nation has recentlI paid h'11 prices for two great pictures, and there ai a great many more whose owners would only be glad to dispose of them for a foitune- apiece. Mr. Lionel Cust's appeal that some benefactor should come to the aid of the National Gallery and be immortalised by an inscription on the frame of the Knl !>?n is still awaiting a response. A. E. M.
LOSS OF A DESTROYER. A court-martial was held at Chatham on Monday on Gunner Henry Irish, officer of the watch of the destroyer Blackwater on the night of April 6, when she was simk through a collision with the Bristol steamer Hero off Dungeness. It was alleged that the vessel was lost by Gunner Irish's negligence or de- fault. Commander John M. D. E. Warren stated that shortly after eleven o'clock, when he was in the chart-house, the signalman re- ported that a ship was coming down. The witness immediately went to the bridge, but before reaching the ladder he saw the red light and steaming light of the Hero, which appeared to be about two points on the star- board bow, a distance of two cables. Almost immediately afterwards the Hero struck the destroyer. Alfred Blair, signalman, said he reported the approach of a steamer to the commander by the prisoner's request. The prisoner said he did everything pos- sible to save the ship. He urged with all due submission that the commanding officer, Commander Warren, was confused and ex- cited when he came on the bridge. The Court found that the charge of losing the ship by negligence or default was not proved, and they acquitted the prisoner. They found, however, that he negligently hazarded the ship and directed him to b. severely reprimanded and dismissed his pre- sent ship.
JIAURETANIA'S NEW RECORD. After a magnificent run from New York the Cunard liner Mauretania arrived at Queenstown on Monday with another splen- did record to her credit. The vessel covered the entire distance from land to land-2,935 nautical miles-in 4d. 18h. 11m., or at the average rate of 25.72 knots an hour. This beats her previous best eastern pas- cage, made in March last, by 24 minutes. It has to be borne in mind that the east- ward run each day consists only of about 23 hours, while the longest route was taken, so the Mauretania's performance is all the more remarkable. Her oest day's run was from noon on Friday to noon on Saturday, when she steamed 610 knots at an average speed of nearly 80t land miles an hour. No other vessel has ever ac- complished such an achievement as this, and it beats the Cunarder's previous beet. day's eastward run by just one knot. ? This is the ninth consecutive voyage on which the Mauretania has steamed an aver- age of over 25 knots an hour.
BRAVE ENGLISHWOMEN. In his report to the Lord Mayor of, the moneys expended for the relief of sufferers by the earthquake in Messina, the Duke of i Bronte (Hon. A. Nelson Hood) describes the work accomplished by his committees of Englishmen and women. He writes:— "Day after day, starting sometimes before daylight, to return late at night, and regard- less of rain and snow, these English ladies and gentlemen left home to carry relief to distant mountain villages, accessible only on muleback, and that frequently with diffi- culty, where no help had come. "To the discomfort of constantly incle- ment weather, the bad state of the mountain paths often added danger, consequent upon the landslips, roaring torrents, intense cold, Eouring rain, and boisterous winds. The elp thus given was the first the unhappy people inhabiting the destroyed villages, or who had escaped from the destruction of Messina, received."
A FATAL SWIM. A tragic mishap, the victim of which is Mr. Lewis D. Broughton, aged 28, of Swiss Cottage, Deal, and a nephew of Admiral of the Fleet Sir John Fisher, is reported from the Irish coast. Mr. Broughton had been stopping in a boarding-house in East Bridge-street, Ennie- killen, at intervals since November last. Shortly after going to Ireland he purchased an island on Lower Lough Erne, known as the White Island, where he intended to reside with his friends during the summer months. Mr. Lindsay, a contractor of Ballycassidy, is, indeed, at present engaged in building a house on White Island. Some of the contractor's workmen, crossing from the island on Monday, discovered Mr. Broughton's clothes lying on the mainland at Caatle Hume, but no sign of Mr. Brough- ton. It is believed he must have been drowned while trying to swim to the island.
LONDON'S PAUPERS. The number of indoor paupers in London at the end of the first quarter of 1909 was higher than that recorded for the same period in any previous year, say the Local Govern- ment Board returns. The rate on March 27 was 17.3 per 1,000, compared with 16.9 on March 31, 1908. Out- door pauperism showed only a sligiht de- crease, but the aggregate of indoor and out- door paupers showed in each week of the quarter an increase on the previous, year, which by March 27 amounted to 3 per cent. The maximum number relieved in the quarter was 13,309 on March 26, and the minimum 9,859 on January 2. The total for England and Wales increased during the quarter.

GREAT MARATHON RACE. I A VIaratli«n Race under the, control of thd I Po: ■ chnic Harriers took place over • jK d course of 26 m.les 385 yards, between p. or and Stamford-bridge, on Saturday# | •i. ;y result provt-d that in the great Olympiff 1 K. hon Race English runners did not dO I .tves justice. The course was of the saittfl 1 C:, ,'fcer, and exact length, as on the occasion I Olympic race, but the winner, H. F. Bax- D V-f the Polytechnic Harriers, covered tW «:u oe in 2h. 42inin. 31sec., and beat J. J. >'f- time by 12min. 47 2-5sec. L. Lord' fi y Park) was second, a quarter of a mild b^i. and H. Green (Sutton Harriers), third, b* mile behind Lord. Close behind were! 'xovv -end (Essex Beagles), Powell (South Lon" < inrriers), Sparkes (Belfast), Thorogocxl (Sri; vend Harriers), Morris (Hampton Har* i, r Miinnering (Hove), and Bulti (Italy). were quite fresh, and, despite the hot still arong head wind met with, most of thø succv -dght starters finished. Barratt took the lea:1 bout three miles from home. .it 20.000 enthusiasts were present at Stay -rtl-bridge to witness the Polytechnic sp> i c.>, which in addition to the Marathon race comprised contests with the Sbde-F'rançaiø and several open events. In the International races on the track the Polytechnic Club beat Stade Frangais by three, points to one. ■„ ANOTHER VICTORY FOR ST. YVES. St. Yves wori the Marathon race in New York on Saturday, 'in which thirteen runners repre- senting seven nations took part, for a purse of I 10,000 dollars. Svanberg (Sweden) was second, five laps behind, and a lap ahead of Crook; (America), who finished third. SimpsoYf (Canada) was fourth, and Appleby (England) fifth. The winner's time was 2h. 44min. 5see. In the sixteenth mile Morrisey collapsed, and had to be assisted from the track. Latef Appleby also fell down in a faint, but was oil his feet again in less than a minute, and resumed running. He electrified the crowd by running^ the last lap at quarter-mile speed. The eftor. proved too much for him-, and he tumbled tO the ground on reaching the winning post.
LORD CHARLES ON HYSTERICS. "One of the primary social problems we havo to face to-day," said Lord Charles Beresford or* I Saturday at an exhibition of physical drill a the Southport Physical Training College, "io the question of health and the manliness of otif people." He did not say that our race was de- generating, but he did say that we wanted morO j physical training as he had seen that night. He had been talking to Lord Roberts, and had,said, "Tell me about your recruits for the Army." The reply was that 40 to 50 per cent. were "casta," because, they were physically un- fit. That was a most serious thing, and ought to be looked into. It must be remembered that* in the time of stress we should have to depend on the manliness of t 12e people. It puzzled him what Ind happened to our1 race, or a section of it. We had got hysterical and emotional, and altogether unlike the people- who made the Empire. Some little matter oc- curred—not a matter of great interest—and we began to scream and shout and be .<;1() emotional that one was ashamed. On the other hand, when great matters concerning our national wel- fare, like the health of the people, or our natio- nal defence, arose, we appeared to be perfectly callous and, not to() care at all. What we wanted was a few ;more n?en fearless and independent, with one thought, in their heads, and that for the nation's good—men who would never mind party. -TI-m,r
REFRESHMENTS BANNED. The Cheshire village of Rostherene was on Saturday afternoon invaded by thousands of people who assembled to demonstrate against the action of Lord Egerton of Tatton in refus- ing to allow the tenants on his estate to pro- vide refreshments to visitors except on pain of instant notice to quit their cottages. Rostherne has for years been a popular resort- of visitors from Manchester and the surround- ing towns, and his lordship's edict has aroused great indignation and resentment. »Fully ten thousand motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians swarmed into the village, the nar- row lanes of which became densely crowded. A meeting was held in a field behind thø' parish church, and a resolution was passed pro- testing on behalf of '^he Manchester and sur- rounding towns against Lord Egerton's action, which was described as being "opposed to the heat traditions of English liberty." His lord- ship was called upon to withdraw his edict so aa to meet the legitimate request of thousand. of law-abiding, peaceable townspeople.
KILLED WHILE MOTORING. Mr. A. A. Grainger Stewart, a promi nent Edinburgh advocate, was killed in a motor-caff I accident late on Friday night on a country road eleven miles from Dumfries. He wa« motoring from Dalbeattie to Dumfries, and had I reached a sharp turn, when the car swung into" the right side of .the road and then, crossing it almost at right angles, dashed up a steep em- bankment twelve feet high. The Hon. William Watson, also an Edinburgh advocate, was driving the car. Both were thrown out, and the car, falling down the bank, pinned Mr. Stewart to the giound. When the car was removed it was found that lie had sustained a deep gash on the right temple, and the doctor stated that death muet have been instantaneous. Mr. Watson, who had a broken arm, state* that a failure of the steering gear was the caueO of the accident.
SMOKING ON THE SCAFFOLD. At Swansea, on Saturday William Joseph Foy, labourer, was e-, 'cti!c-d for the murder of Mary Ann Reee, with whom ho had lived afr Merthyr,, bv throwing her down a disused fur- nace. Foy at first told the police that he fluiiJJ her down the furnace, but later -vaid she acci- dentally fell down. Foy rose early and pertook of breakfast, con- sisting of beefsteak and onions. Henry Pier- point, the executioner, who vas assisted by Ellis,, entered the cell a few minutes before eight, and the condemned mail eubimttecl quietly to the pinioning process. He walked without Assistance to the gallows smoking t ft- cigarette, and retained it in his mouth until tho black cap was adjusted. Death was instan- taneous.
