TIIEIIB are at present 1074 Church of England livings with an annual income of less than 9100; 1817 of a value of from £100 to EI-50 a year; 2274 between £ 150 and £ 200 a year 4355 between £ 200 and E300 a year; and 4105 over E300 a year. MR. PETER GILSTON, addressing a temperance meeting in Wakefield, stated that last year, while acting °as Mayor of Leeds, he entertained 10,000 persons, including princes, bishops, and judges, and did not provide a single drop of intoxicating drink for any of them. DR. HALL EDWARDS and Dr. Ratcliffe, of Birming- ham, have obtained a Rontgen photograph of the inside of an adult skull, showing the bones, with face, nostrils, and other fleshy structures in graduated shadow. There was no trace of the brain, but the photograph proves the possibility of locating internal osseous tumour. THERE is always a difficulty in fixing the day on which the Queen's Birthday is to be celebrated officially in London. It must be a Saturday, in con- sequence of the various functions which take place, and the Queen likes the celebration to come as soon as possible after May 24. This year the birthday falls upon Whit-Sunday, and as the recess will not have concluded on Saturday, May 30, it will be necessary to postpone the metropolitan celebration until Saturday, June 6. Accordingly the trooping of the colours will take place on that day, and also the full-dress Ministerial banquets, the Prince of Wales being the guest of the Prime Minister, who will entertain the Corps Diplomatique at the Foreign Office, where Lady Salisbury will afterwards hold a { reception, for which upwards of 8000 invitations are to be issued.
