Ought taricab drivers to smoke? was n, question which cropped tip the other day between the Home Secretary and a depuc;> tion f.'om the drivers" union. It wis that driver had been reported for siiso»L.g. and the Commissioner of Police said that the practice of smoking on taxicabs wns dangerous because of the danger of the light of the match coming into contact with the petrol vapour. If the danger is a real one. it is, of course, tery serious, but it is next to impossible to think of the diiver of a taxicab without, a cigarette in his mouth. New men. new methods. In the prosperous days of the hansom Jehu used to sit up on his petob, jaunty and debonair, smoking a cigar. His successor swears by the -cigarette, and he will certr.inly feel it a deprivation if he is not allowed to indulge in a whiff whiie on duty. Why should not a hairdresser be a success- ful playwright? At any rate, here is one who has done it. Mr. Durchon Janitsch has written a play called "The Raven's Cry," and the proceeds of its production are to be devoted to the assistance of those hsiir- dressers who snared bv the Paris floods. | There is a gCCKl ueal in that idea. A long time ago we heard of a newspaper written "by gentlemen for gentlemen," and unkind pieople nowadays talk of a certain journal as being written "by office-boys for offioe-boye." Why not, then, plays by hairdressers for hairdressers, and novels by tailors for tailors? A hairdresser, it is certain, sees a good deal of human nature while pursuing his daily avocation. "Every five minutes," says Mr. Janitsch, "brings us a variety of manner and of temperament. Even when we are talking for the thousandth time about the weather, we are learning character." That much-abused but always popular in, stitution, the annual exhibition at the Royal [Academy, is going to be rather duller than Ensual, so the prophets say. Millionaires, torn with anxiety about the Budget, the jsuper-tax, and the land taxes, have tightened their purse-strings, and have no money to spare for the encouragement of art, and there will, therefore, it is expected, be fewer J commissioned works.. It is not on that account, however, that Mr. Sargent, the famous portrait painter, will have no por- trait on the walls of the Academy this year. He has long threatened to leave Burlington House desolate in this respect, and this year he has carried out the threat. He will, how- ever, have a number of landscapes ont view, and his genius in that phase of art will cer- tainly lend distinction to the exhibition. I Amotg the portraits will be one of his Majesty the King, by Sir Edward Poyntor, and Sir William Orchardson will exhibit what are said to be two of the most exquisite likenesses he has ever put upon canvas. Visitors to London who are interested in church architecture should not fail to make a pilgrimage to the old Norman Priory Church of St. Bartholomew-the-Great, West Smith- field, which is one of the finest and most in- teresting churches in London. It has suffered -come shocking treatment in past years, and it is possible to see on one of its walls traces of the days when a. blacksmith's forge stood there. The work of restoration has been proceeding for some time, and the operation of removing a portion of a stationer's shop which covers the south side of the arch of the ,Smitbheld Gateway has brought to light some fine mouldings and dog-tooth ornamen- tation of the early English arch, and in addi- tion the arch of a small mural arcade of the same period, similar to that on the west front of Dumstable Priory, which was also an Augustinian Priory. At the back of the arch a portion of an Early English arch of the nave and a portion of a vaulting rib -and a mutilated pier and capital have uncovered. These discoveries confirm the statements made by the Restoration Com- mittee that the Smithfield Gate is a portion of the west facade of the church of the Prior,y of St. Bartholomew. [n not much more than a month the White City will be re-opened with the Anglo-Japanee,e Exhibition. Thorough in .everything they undertake, our friends from the Far East do not intend that the opening day shall find them with their work half finished. Every detail in their section will be complete. An interesting feature of the Exhibition will be the examples of landscape gardening, an art in which the Japanese have been famous for centuries. The princi- pal example of this will follow the plan of the garden of the Emperor's old palace near jKvoto,. which was laid out at the end of the sixteenth century. Its designer only under- took the work on condition that he were allowed unlimited time and money, with the further proviso that nobody should examine the garden until it was finished. Fifteen years passed, it is recorded, before the Em- per/ir enjoyed the first private view. The counterpart of this garden has been con- structed in a few weeks.

STRUGGLE WITH BURGLARS. During church hours on Sunday night burglars broke into a house in Deanery-road, Stratford (Essex), occupied by Mr. William Dodson, by forcing the front door. The house was left unattended, but the doors were locked by Mrs. Dodson when she went out to church. She returned, home after service, and as she was about to unlock the front door she heard someone running down the passage. She unlocked the door with her key .and entered the house. On seeing Mrs. Dodson the burglars, who were two young ment about twenty years old, made a rush to get- out, but Mrs. Dodson pluckily grappled with them and attempted to hold them, using her umbrella freely in the struggle. Mrs. Dodson received several blows about the chest, and eventually the young burglars fought their way to the front door and ran in different directions. Mrs. Dodson chased them up the street, shouting to a man. who was passing to stop them, but the men got away. I The whole of the house had been tho- roughly ransacked, every drawer and box in the rooms having been turned out OIl the floor. Fortunately, owiiif to Mrs. Dodson's returning, very little' property was taken. The missing1 articles included two watches, a brooch, ai:4 a ring and about a sovereign in Kihor.

DELUSIONS AND SUICIDE. Charles Edward C^n-uaughton, forty-two, warchousem ",n, of ArdwicL, .Jjftanchesterj went home one day and #aM to his .sister, "The top V and bottom of it is I have to give up my work, as all the men at the workB are saying I am trying to work their wages down." He had been drinking recently, and on Mon- day his body was found in the Rochdale Canal. In the man's pocket-book was written "Dear Sister,—This is my last and final letter. I kuu;W now what- I have done. I have been cowardly all through my life- false t<» myself, fabe to my own soul, false to mv religici. atici. to my God. I know that what I h: ve mi id is he^mning of Shl) Catholic persecution in England, perhaps all over tne i^uierse. i have been a weak- coward, and I could not even pay my debts.

I have been false to-everything, false to every- body." A fellow workman of Connaughton said there" was no truth in the man's imaginations. A verdict of "Suicide wl ilst insane" was j^.5; turned at the inquest.
CARTRIDGE IN THE COAL. The Cardiff steamer Trafalgar has landed at Falmouth the body of William Orchard, a tire- man, of Cardiff, who was the victim of a mys- terious explosion. During Friday a heavy explosion was heard and volumes of smoke issued from the stoke- hold. Norman Trimiey, the chief engineer, pluckily descended, and found that- the fire from beneath the port boiler had been completely blown out. Orchard was picked up smothered with red-hot cinders and terribly burned. His injuries were dressed with oil, and he seemed to make progress, but on Sunday evening he became unconscious and expired. Captain Davies stated at the inquest on Mon- day that the coal was procured from a Spanish steamer at Cartoforte. The fumes in the stoke- hold were those of black powder, and he could only assume that the explosion was caused by a miner's cartridge being among the coal put into the furnace. He had no reason to sus- pect any foul play on the part of the crew. The coroner said it could only be surmised that the explosion was caused by a blasting cartridge left in the coal, and the jury re- turned a verdict that death was due to burns caused by the explosion. eo
SIGNALS OF DISTRESS. Four Yorkshire visitors have had a singular and unpleasant experience on the Big Wheril at Blackpool. Desiring to see how the town looked at night from the top of the wheel they paid the fare, and the wheel had completed three-quarters of the circle when it suddenly stopped. For a time the visitor's were unconcerned, and ever) when half an hour had passed they concluded that some trilling defect oe- curred, which would soon be put right. It was not until the electric lights of the ground were switched off that they realised tlif» truth—that they were l'or-(,-tt 'ell Now thoroughly alarmed, they shouted, until they were hoarse, but such efforts- proved in vain. Fiually a new idea struck Mr. Light- bowler. He started striking matches, and hold- ing them against the window. Lights in mid-air had the effect desired. A. crowd soon gathered, then the police sent for the manager, steam was got up, and, after tw& hours, release came.
