BOGUS SITUATIQN. At Nottingham, on Monday, a number of charges were heard against John Wilmot, alias Thompson and Allen, of attempting to, obtain money through answers to advertise- ments inserted in various provincial papers. The defendant was formerly in the employ of I the Great Central Railway Company as a foreman shunter. I The prisoner had replied to advertisements appearing in many newspapers to persons seeking situations offering them various in- ducements in regard to vacancies which did not exist. I He succeeded in obtaining in one aase £14 from a man named, Savil at March. Savil had saved the money in order to get married, and the prisoner offered him a situation which, it was suggested, would enable him to live happily. Prisoner, who pleaded "Guilty," was con- victed, it was stated, five or six years ago of a similar offence. He was on Monday sent to gaol for six months.
