It appealed that the girl, who came from Leomin- ster, was in service at Mrs Jephrey's boarding- house, Criccieth, and was missing since Sunday evening.

The Corone's inquiry as to the cause of the death of the boy Trueman, who was drowned in the canal at Aintree took place on Tuesday. It was originally alleged that the boy had been told to throw a lar^e stone attached to a piece of rope into the canal, and that when he did so the stone pulled him in.

At the recent Hunters' Show at Carmarthen, says a corespondent of Woman, a sad-faced young woman, simply dressed in pale heliotrope, accom- panied by a dapper, military-looking man, at- tracted much attention.

SENTENCED TO DEATH.—These are the most terribly significant three words we have in the English language. Thousands of wretched crea- tures, whose lives have become forfeited to the outraged laws of their country, have heard them pronounced with feelings of sickening terror. The man who has neglected the most simple laws of heilth feels that all is indeed lost, when the dread sentence is pronounced by the doctor, who has used all his medical skill upon him, in vain. In the letter case, however, the door of hope has been opened, through the medium of Holloway's Pills and Ointment. They have effected at the last moment, as thous >nds of testimonials, being constantly received, will prove. Two suicides of a painful character were com- mitted last week at Heading.

About a quarter past twelve p.m., one of the privates heard the report of a rifle, and on going to a tent in the drill ground be found Benning dead.
