GIRL SUICIDE'S PATHETIC LETTER. A pathetic story was told 011 Monday at an inquest on Annie Smith, aged 17, whoae decapitated body was found on the line at Woking, within a short distance of her parents' house. The girl, who had been in service, had written to her father that she was suffering from kidney trouble, and that the doctor had told her that it would lie a miracle if she lasted longer than a month. Sit(- lizict r(, life or strength in her, she said, and went about as if worked by machinery. Realising what a bad' and ungrateful daughter she had been, she asked her parents' forgive- ness, as she felt sheeOldd not go knowing they thought badly of her. It v.ns just as well that she should go, because she was 't.he rebel of the family." Mrs. Parnell. matron of a home at Wands- worth, where the deceased had slaved whilst changing situations, said the girl was way- ward and imaginative.The day before her body was found witness received from the deceased a letter, in which she said: "1 can- not possibly go to be married to Denis. Surely God would never bless such a mar- riage. Ko one ever seemed to care for me at home. I was always, the black sheep.' I never remember my mother kissing me or having a loving word for me. So you will not wonder why I used to talk to the boys. I forgive them all, though, as I hone to be forgiven. I know 1 am dying, and it is an awful feeling. T shall go home and see them a^ain, and then end it -ill. I hope you will forgive me for this wicked deed, but it is the best thing to do." The jury returned a verdict of Suicide whilst of unsound mind."
RECORD PUBLIC-HOUSE SALE. What was described as a record trans- action in public-houses was recalled by an action which terminated on Monday in the King's Bench Division. It was a elaihi by Mr. Alfred Moore, trustee of tltc est.nt.e ()r Mr. Frank J. Sullivan, against Mr. Richard Smith, public-house valuer arid broker, to recover X3,250 and £ 2,000 in connection with the sale of the' Angel, Islington, the Victoria, King's Cross, and the Rockingham, Newington-eauseway, in October, 1897. On behalf of Mr. Moore, it. was urged that in addition to £ 3.250 paid by Mr. Sullivan to the defendant on the purchase of the houses for £325,000 from a Mr. Brink icy, the defendant received £ 2,000 alleged secret commission from the vendors. Mr. Brinkley had since died, and Mr. Sullivan married the widow (Mrs. Brinkley). Then a commis- sion note was found relating to a payment by Mr. Brinkley to Mr. Smith, and the .plaintiff's case was that Mr. Sullivan paid his commission to the defendant in igno- rance of the fact that Mr. Smith was also being paid by the vendor. For the defence it was contended that the £ 2,000 was paid with Mr. Sullivan's knowledge. Defendant denied the alleged ne.erecy of the payment, and pleaded the Statute of Limitations. The jury found in favour of the plaintiff for the £ 5,250 claimed, with costs. Mr. Jus- tice Phillimore entered judgment for Mr. Moore with costs, and granted a stay of exe- cution, conditional upon the defendant pay- ing tlie money into Court within fourteen days.
ACCIDENT DELAYS A MARRIAGE. The story of a marriage delayed as the re- Bult of an L.C.C. tramcar accident was told in the Loanion Sheriffs' Court on Monday, in a case -remitted from the High Court for tttaessment of damages. In November last Edward Jackson, of Hackney, was riding in a car, when he was thrown violently from his seat through another tramear colliding. He has been under medical treatment since. Jackson said he suffered from injury to the spine, pains in the head, giddiness, and want of sleep. He had been unable to work since the accident. His marriage, which had been fixed for this August, had to be put off. In fact. he was on his way to meet his sweetheart at the time of the mishap. Counsel: I hope the marriage will still come off. Is the lady still willing to wait? Jackson (smiling): I hope so. Dr. Hume said the man was suffering from loss of sensationi in the legs, arms, and body, due to the low condition of his nervous system. It was not certain tliaf* even with special treatment (which had not been tried) he would recover. The jury assessed damages at £ 415.
A DESERTER'S MISTAKE. A man walked into Deal Police-station on Saturday night, and said he wished to give himself up as a deserter from the Marines. Subsequent information showed that after four months' service he deserted 13 years ago, and had since been in a situation at Swindon, where he married, and had an exemplary character. Reading in the papers of an amnesty for deserters on the King's accession, he com- municated with the Royal Marine authori- ties, only to be told that the amnesty did not apply to naval deserters, and advising him to give himself up. At the police-court on Monday it was ttated that the Admiralty would be in- formed of the circumstances with a view to a pardon and discharge being granted. Informally handing the man over to the Custody of the Marines, the magistrates hoped their efforts would be successful.
DEAD MAN COMES HOME.

That their belief was justified is proved now by his return home. It is said that lie, hought a complete set of cheap clothing in Carlisle the day he went and donned these when he left th* others on the beach.
HOME HINTS. « Clean fruit jars with a metallic brumli to free the sides from pieces of thin glaes. Wash the jars in hot soapeuds, rinse well, and bake them thoroughly in the oven. This baking process is really essential, and sweetens jare which have stood all the winter in the cellar. I Keep a tin of oatmeal powder at hand on the nursery wash-hand stand. This will pre- I vent the skin from chapping if the powder is rubbed over the children's hands, as well as the knees, ankles, and calves of the legs after washing. Very painful corns which have a trick of shooting to announce the approach of a change of weather can be eased by tying them up at night in a poultice made of roasted onion, mixed with an equal quantity of soft soap. Ginger Brandy.—For this the green gin- ger, procurable at some of the big grocers, is best. Bruise three or four pieces of gin- ger, put into a bottle with one quart of brandy, and leave for a in oath tightly ( corked. Pour off the brandy and sweeten t to taste with syrup. Cut off the hands and save the arms of your long kid gloves. Cse them for polishing silver, mirrors, cut-glass, and jewels. Cut of the tops of old tan or grey gloves you can make charming bags for carrying opera- glasses, etc. Cut the kid to the same pattern as is used for silk or velvet bags, line with silk of any pretty colour, and trace your initials on the outside in water-colours or with embroidery silk. Potato Pie.—Take medium-sized potatoes, Ii slice, not very thin, in cold water. Let them stand in this water fifteen minutes; take out and dry. Then place a layer of theae in a pie-dish; pepper and salt and small lumps of butter; then another layer of potatoes, etc., until the dish is filled. Over the last layer grate cheese. Then add enough milk to cover them. Put in the oven and bake till done; about three-quarters of as hour. The value of hot milk cannot be too highly rated. When coming in tired from shopping a glase of hot milk can be taken where a meal would cause indigestion, and it will often induce sleep when a person goes to bed too tired and nervous to sleep otherwise. Milk should never be taken as a beverage with a hearty meal, and it should always be sipped slowly. If milk is swallowed quickly the curd will form in large pieces, fcnd be difficult of digestion. If fish is done before it is quite time to serve it, take it out of the writer and place it on & strainer on a very hot dish, which should b» set over the fish kettle. Dip a clean ckitli into the boiling water, spread it over the fish, place a clean, tin cover over and leave it until about two or mree minutes before it i« required. Remove the cloth and put the fish back into the kettle for a minute or two, in order that it may be all hot ws pos- sible. The watcr must, be kept boiling all the time. Drain, dish, and serve rapidly. Greengage Preserve.—Place the fruit in a wire basket, immerse the basket in boiline water, and when the skins loosen take them out and peel them. Weigh the fruit, and allow one pound of sugar to every pound. Place a layer of the fruit in a large earthem iar, sprinkle it with eome of the sugar, then •mother layer of iruit and sugar, and when V.l is used, set' the jar aside until morning. Draw off the juice, boil it, skimming as the scum rises, and, when the juice i clear, add the fruit. Cook gently for half-an-liour, skim out the fruit, paid boil the svrup until thick. Then add the fruit and boil for five minutes. Put it away in jars. To keep apples through the winter in a barrel bore holes in the bottom and sides of the barrel, and store on a dry platform a foot or more high. Where only a few apples are available for storage, a good plan is care- fully to wrap them singly in paper. This will effectually protect them against any drving influence of the atmosphere. They may then be packed in layers, three or four deep, in shallow boxes or hampers, and placed in the coolest available position in the house or outbuilding. Pigeon Pie.—Clean and parboil the birds if large, cut in halves. Season the liquor, and, thicken with flour wet in cold water. Arrange the birds around the edge of a deep rduiid dillh, with breasts up and legs towards the centre. -Caver with the liquor, and dot each bird. with butter. Lay a narrow strip of paste around the edge of the dish wet this, and cover with crust rolled a little larger than the dich, pinching it down to the nar- row strip of paste. Cut a gash in the centre of the crust, and let the (xtru. fulneas corn. down around each bird to outline it, so that it may be served nicely. Bake until the crust is a rich brown.

It is well known that certain vagabonds desire nothing better, especially when the cold weather comes on, than to be arretted and locked up, in order that they may foe taken care of for awhile.
