THE BIRLING RECEIPT.—The Hon. E. V. Bligh, vicar of Birling, is endeavouring to raise X500 for the purchase and promulgation of a cure for hydro- phobia, known as the "Birling receipt," and in the possession of a parishioner. He enumerates several cures effected by it, and among the subscribers are Lords Abergavenny and Darnley. In the meantime another infallible cure is stated and experiences given to be nitrate of silver allowed to dissolve into the wound after the scar has been cicatrised by that agent. FATAL ACCIDENT IN A CEMETERY.—A rnmt painful circumstance, which has just been the subject of a coroner's inquiry, occurred at the Islington Cemetery at Finchley. On Easter Monday a boy named Frederick George Appleyard, whose parents were on a day's visit to Mr. Riley, the superintendent of the cemetery, was playing about the grounds with his sister, who, as well as himself, was of very tender age, and when-they came to a pond at the bottom of the cemetery he commenced splashing her with a stick. Whilst doing this he lost his balance and fell into the pond. The little girl quietly returned to the lodge, and selecting a clean pinafore, put it on in place of the one that had been splashed. Her father, missing the boy, asked her where he was, when she replied, He's in the pond." The father ran in frantic haste to the scene of the accident, but could at first see nothing of the body. After a little search he however discovered that the child had sunk in an upright position into the deep mud at the bottom of the pond, and had there been drowned.. The jury returned a verdict of Accidental death."
