A MAYOR'S ADVIC it.-A curious point bearing upon the licensing law was investigated by the magistrates at Leamington on Monday, when Job Power, of the Greyhound Inn, was sum- moned for selling liquor at Milverton be- tween nine and ten o'clock at night. It turned out that Power was caterer at Milverton Flower Show, for which he obtained from the Leamington magistrates an occasional licence which permitted him to sell between the hours of nine a.m. and nine p.m. An Excise licence also obtained authorised him to sell liquor till.10 p.m. As the defendant found that the show was to remain open until 10 o'clock at night he went to the Mayor of Leaming- ton, who did not think he would do any harm by continuing to sell until that hour.—The Mayor, Dr. Thursfield, went into the box and gave evidence in support of this statement. The magistrates ordered defendant to pay costs.—The Mayor remarked, I will pay," and his worship thereupon handed over the money amid applause. A MOTHER'S CRIME.—A verdict of wilful murder was returned on Monday evening by a coroner's jury at the inquest on the body of Gertrude Dickenson, aged fourteen months, against the mother, Ann Dickenson, a single woman, of Greetland, near Halifax, who on Friday morning jumped into a pond with the child, which she had tied to her back. The fol- lowing letter, which the woman had written to a man named Heys, of Greetland, was read: I am going to do something which you have driven me to do. I really cannot see my way to live any longer. What am I to do with three children ? I have lived a life in misery enough with two. Nobody knows only myself how I have tried to scrape to get them something to eat, and you never asked me if I had enough, or how I did or anything. You have behaved shameful to me all through, and then for you to say that the child is not yours, I can't stand it no longer. I will end it. I will take the child with me. You have ruined me. If only you would have got married it would have saved all this. Good-bye, and take care of Arthur.—A. Dickenson." The i'ury added a rider that Dickenson was driven iy despair to commit the deed.
