THE Earl of Carnarvon has, in consideration of the prevailing depression in agriculture, returned to the tenants of his Somersetshire and Hampshire estates 10 per cent. on the amount of their respec- tive rentals. BOY DROWNED WHILE SCALING APPLES.—On Wednesday, August 27th, William Locke, a boy 11 years of age, was getting some apples from a tree at Pontnewydd, Golligaer parish, and on hearing some one coming, he made his way off, and ran into the brook that leads to the Taff river. There being a great flood in the brook at the time, he was drowned. Deceased was picked up in the feeder at Melingriffith on Sunday morning last. An inquest was held at the police station, Whitchurch, on Monday. The jury returned a verdict of Acci- dental death." I LOYAL SHEPHERDS' PRESENTATION TO MR GLADSTONE.—A little more than 12 months ago Mr Gladstone joined the Loyal Order of Ancient Shepherds, Hawarden district, as an honorary member, and recently a deputation, headed by the chief shepherd of the district, attended at the Castle, to present the right hon. gentleman with an emblem of the order, in a handsome frame. The presentation was made by the provincial corres- ponding secretary (Mr J. Wright), and Mr Glad- stone, in receiving it, said he should regard the emblem with feelings of pleasure. He should al- ways be ready to co-operate with the officers and members in promoting the benefit of the order. THE Earl of Kilmorey, whose estates are in Cheshire, has issued a circular to his tenants an- nouncing that the letting of his farms will be thrown into the market to see what they will fetch, as the only means of ascertaining if their letting value has been affected by the difficulties surround- ing the agricultural interest. He trusts that the greater part of the old tenancies will be renewed, but where that should not be the case care will be taken that reasonable compensation is given for unexhausted improvements. Since the issue of the circular notices to quit have been served, and none of the tenants have applied for a renewal of their tenancies. We are being rapidly Americanised, and our most recent development in that direction is the cobtail." The cobtail is an American tramcar whose special mission it is to do for the conductors what the rail- way has done for the old coachman-efface them. The cobtail, which is about to be introduced into the metropolis by the London Tramways Company, is a vehicle seating twenty passengers inside there is no ou'side accommodation. It is drawn by one horse, and the services of the conductor are dispensed with. The entrance is at the rear of the car; on entering, the passenger sees staring him in the face in the front of the car the money box, consisting of wood and glass. Into this box he drops the exact fare, which the driver is able to see as it falls. If he needs change he pushes a small spring in the front door, and the driver on receiving the coin hands him a package of money, selected from a box attached to the framework of the car, in which is deposited pack- ages of change for coins of all denominations. In America these cars have been found to work admir- ably, being very handy and extremely economical,
