ODDS AND ENDS. The harper sings a song of love In the village street, at eve; Shadows fall from the trees above, And figures fantastic weave,— Lustily twangs the old man the strings, And softly his amorous ditty sings. Three merry maids draw near, the while A pale faced girl stands aside; As the song ends, the three girls smile, And the harper's love song deride,— But the pale girl, pensive, lingers yet, And tis seen her eyes with tears are wet. J. C. A.] If some men had killed Goliath they would re- mind the Lord of it every day in the week. Don't talk much about giving the devil his due u ntil you are sure if he had it he would not have you. France has a larger revenue, expenditure, and public debt than any other country in the world. For every four shillings spent in England on drink only a halfpenny is expended on education. Two parishes in Berkshire have four inhabi- tants each in Buckingham there is a parish witb seven inhabitants; Oxford one with eight, and other counties have parishes with less than 20. In six parishes which have only six electors be- tween them, it would seem a hopeless task to get together a Parish Council. Under the head of mis-description of properties, Mr B. J. Vaughan told some excellent stories in a lecture at the Auctioneers' Institute the other day. Thus a tale is told of a gentleman who bought an estate under the hammer of the great George Robins, a master of florid description, without having seen it, and then, upon coaching down to inspect his purchase, found that the navigable, meandering stream' in front of the house was a half-stagnant canal, and the pic- turesque hanging wood on the opposite hill' a gallows. It would, happily, appear as if the yearly epi- demics of influenza have worked themselves out, But the growing intensity of diphtheria is getting alarming. Up to the outbreak of 1888 this in- sidious disease had never carried off more than 1,000 victims in 12 months, so far as London was concerned. But in 1892 that number was doubled and as the mortality of the last 10 mOBths amounted to 2,500, we are jastified in concluding that 3,000 will not be an exaggerated estimate be- fore the end of the year arrives. In truth, we are in the midst of a plague, net much less fatal than cholera and aiinust as insidious, for the fatal at- tacks auiount t from 20 to 30 per cent., or more than four times the mortality of scarlet fever. If teetotallers could have discovered something nice and yet invigora ing as a substitute for liquor, instead of those dreadful temperance dnnka they in va.in present to our notice, our youth might have been won from the slavery of tho wiue cup that way, but, as it is, their eniran .'in ement has been effected by the mgar.

An aiticle in "Borderland" describes the ghostly tips giveu to a Nonconformist minis- ter in a Viiuland town through a medium known as "Professor" Baldwin. In "Truth" Mr Maskelyne shows how the trick was done. The clerical inquirer iprote his questions down on thin csiips of paper, which were rolled up and placed on the table. Baldwin then picked them up and tjresse them against his forehead,, and after some lurth: r t. the replies, ostensibly dic- tated by t' spirits, were written out. And now for the t<- • Apparently Baldwin puts the piece of paper ba it n the table, but he does nothing of the kind. Whitt he puts back is a dummy pellet, which be lias concealed in his hand for the pur- pose. The pellet containing the question remains in his hand. While the novirfe is writing his second question, as he is directed to do, Baldwin "pens the first slip under cover of the table, reads it, refolds it, and makes some slight mark or crease upon it so that he can recognise it again. The same course is pursued with the other slips. The answers, of course, are based entirely on the in- formation supplied in the questions eked out by anything tuat can be picked up in conversation. Gentlemen, there is no deception." Through the enterprise of a newspaper editor, Signor Sonzono, of the Secolo," the Bible has secured a larger circulation than any other book now selling in Italy, where hitherto the Scriptures bad beer, rpgarded as a Protestant book, and sold in comparatively small numbers. The editor con- ceived the idea of issuing an illustrated family Bible, the first of the kind ever seen in Italy. The illustrations were from plates used by Messrs Cassell in their English Family Bible. The work came out in numbers, at a halfpenny each, making lOf. for the completed book. The first edition consisted of 50,000. Thus as each copy cost 10f., X20,000 have been voluntarily spent by the Italian people in providing themselves with family Bibles. In the arsenal of Venice during the mid- uay rest the Secolo Bible is often read with the daily newspaper with which it is sold. One workman reads whilst the others sit round and listen. THE EMPRESS FREDKBICK.—Here are two stories about the Empress Frederick, whose imperious disposition is well known, When the Empress was a child she was not a little jealous of her brother, the Prince of Wales. She resented the fact that one younger than herself should be treated with greater respect, and, without a doubt, that was the case with the Heir-Apparent. When- ever he went in or out of the Castle it was the custom to saLute him, and the attendants in order to warn the men that the Prince was coming, would give a peculiar stamp with their feet. This was not lost on the observing young Princess, and one day, when she was going out for a walk, just before she came in sight of the guards, she paused and gave the regulation Heir-Apparent stamp. Sure enough the soldiers presented arms just as the small but delighted Princ ss dawned upon their astonished eyes. Another anecdote of the small girl is quite as characteristic. The Royal children were attended in illness by old Dr Brown of Windsor. Probably on account of the unpalat- able doses he gave them the doctor was not popu- lar with the little Princes and Princesses. They accordingly took great delight in calling him Brown," to the utter ignoring of his title and also the great indignation of their Royal mamma. The Queen took them apart on one of the occa- sions and said that the next one who offended in that way should be despatched to bed. Dr Brown came soon again. The little Princess Royal knew he was coming. She also knew that her mother had meant what she said. It had no deterring effect. She walked into the 100m and promptly remarked, H Good morning, Brown good evening, Brown. I am going to bed." And to bed she went before anyone had a chance to send her. THE FUTURY," OF THE ENGLISH RACE. Mr Leeky delivered the first of a series of winter lec tures at the Imperial institute on Monday. He spoke on the development of the colonies, and said that with our vast population it is a matter of life and death to the nation that new fields should be opened to our goods. In the present condition of the world we could not do better than look for these fields within the Empire. England had given great latitude to her colonies fostering within them the spirit of enterprise and self-reliance, and in the main had benefited by their association with this country. No one could foretell the future of Great Britain, for the balance of pi.-wer was always changing; but they I might confidently predict that no revolution in human affairs couid destroy the future ascendancy of the Enghbh language and of the Imperial race
THE WEEK'S NE IVS. A five-storeyed factory in Square-road, Halifax, was gutted by fire, and the damage is estimated at from X10,000 to £ 12,000.. Alfred Lockley was brought up at the Preston Police Court charged with attempting to murder his father by shooting him with a revolver, and was remanded. The death is announced at Dolguog, Machyn- lleth, of Mary Anne Charlotte, widow of the late Judge William Beresford, of Haf od-Neddyn, Car- marthenshire, in her 75th year. On behalf of the Welsh Union of Women's Liberal Associations, the president and secretary have written to the Irish members thanking them for their votes on the Local Government Bill in favour of female suffrage. At the Chester County Court, an architect re- covered £ 10 damages against the London and North Western and the Great Western Railway Companies for injuries sustained to his hand by the closing of a carriage door. Mr C. T. Sampson, the shoe manufacturer who first imported Chinese labour into Massachusetts, has left his entire property, amounting to X100 000. to benevolent objects, chiefly in con- nection with the Baptist denomination. The Rev. Benjamin Thomas, of Narbeth, Pem- brokeshire, died on Monday. He was editor of the Star of Wales, the organ of the Baptist denomination in Wales, and was widely known throughout the Principality and elsewhere. The Chief Constable of Carnarvonshire reported to the Standing Joint Committee that as the result of the recent licensing sessions there was a decrease of six full licensed houses and an increase of two grocers and one refreshment house licence. Unless there is a heavy rainfall speedily the Leicester Corporation will, they say, be compelled to prohibit the use of water for manufacturing purposes, which will throw thousands of people out of employment. The supply affects over 200,000 people. An original character has passed away in Mr David Rowland, of Pennal. He was a staunch oil Methodist, and it was he who created the now well-known saying that Mr So-and-so is a splendid man on his knees, but what kind of a man is he on his legs ?" The Barcelona police made an important dis- covery on Tuesday night. They entered a house in which an Anarchist club held its meetings, and found therein materials for the manufacture of bombs, together with a large quantity of Anarchist literature and correspondence A despatch fr-m Major Forbes at Balnwayo, reports he complete bieak up of the Matabele army. Lobengula has been deserted by nearly the whole of his men, and it is very probable t at the detachment of the Chartered Company forces which has been sent in pursuit will capture the fugitive cbief. On Wednesday evening the collection boxes in the Ronun Catholic Church of St. Winefride, Holywell, were broken open and robbed of their contents. The cburch doors are open throughout the day, and it is believed that the thief slipped in at dusk. One of the boxes broken into was in the sanctuary its If. The members of the Flintshire Standing Joint Committee discussed at some length the action of the authoriti, a who called out the military in view of possible riots in the districts affected by the coal strike. Eventually a resolution was passed in favour of the power to call out the military being vested in the Joint Committee. A farm lad was recently fined .£5 by the Pen- rhyndeudraeth magistrates for setting a net on his mttster's land?, presumably to catch hares. It was not alleged that the lad had slaughtered a single hare. I wo pounds of the five has already been paid, and the Home Secretary has remitted the rest, with a notification of his opinion that the costs should not be enforced. At Leicester Assizes John Richardson, labourer, was charged with attempting to murder his niece, Elizabeth Richardson, at Hindley. The prisoner attacked the young woman with a coal pick in- flicting terrible wounds on her head, and placing her life in great danger. Richardson escaped, but was eventually captured. He was found guilty, and sentenced to 15 years' penal servitude. A number of men convicted of robbery with violence were sentenced at Liverpool to short term3 of imprisonment and to be flogged. Mr Justice Day said in one case that he had thought z, of sending the prisoners Into penal servitude, but he did not see why they should be kept at the expense of society. One man was sent to prison for four months, and to be flogged twice, receiving twenty lashes each time. At the Hereford County Court, Richard Adams, innkeeper, and Mary Ellis, servant, were bued for the value of a five-pound note, which John Davies, haulier, had tendered to the servant in payment for a drink. She. not having seen a banknote before, thought it was an ordinary piece of paper, threw it on the fire, and it was burned. Judge Lea knew of no legal decision in such a case, and reserved judgment to look up the law. Mr Acland &ays that under the Welsh Inter- mediate Education Act, Churchmen are free to establish private hostels al their own cost. Such a hostel was established by Churchmen for ztudents at the University College, Bangor, and there is nothing to prevent their doing likewise for pupils at any Welsh Intermediate school." This declaration disposes of an important point as to which much uncertainty has been felt through- out the discussions on the county schemes. At Liverpool Assizes Mr Justice Day sentenced seven miners to three months' imprisonment each for rioting at Haydock during the recent coal struggle. All the men pleaded guilty. His Lordship said the prisoners had taken part in the not to intimidate and punish men who were simply doing necessary work at the pits. It was shocking that these men should be molested by ruffians. Attacks of this kind were dangerous to society, and he was bound to show that the law was strong enough to protect people from such outrages. For many years past now the Lariboisere Hospital in Paris has contributed its quota to the manufacture of cigarette pipers for the Parisian capital. It appears that the cotton wool and lint, after being used in the wards of the institution, were regarded as the special perquisites of the servants, who sold them to manufacturers of the particular industry to which we have referred. This proceedings, which has now been put a stop to, was carried out sub rosa, and it may readily be surmised was never widely known, or perhaps consumers of Parisian cigarettes would have been fewer in number. At the Liverpool Assizes Henry Timms, 29, was indicted for the murder of his father at Barrow. The prisoner's father and mother were quarrelling in their bedroom, and the prisoner ran upstairs and stabbed his father, killing him instantly. There was no evidence of provocation or anything to justify the use of the knife; and Mr Justice Day plainly intimated that the jury ought to find the prisoner guilty unless they believed his assertion that the deceased ran upon the knife." The jury found the prisoner guilty of man- slaughter, and Mr Justice Day marked his opinion of the case by sending him to penal servitude for fifteen years. The influenza epidemic in Blackburn is shown by official statistics to be of an alarming charac- ter. The borough medical officer has communica- ted with mill owners throughout the town, and replies so far show that of 16,978 workpeople, 1,447 have in three weeks been prostrated. Assuming this experience to apply to the rest of the mills and the town generally, it would appear that 10,000 persons have suffered during the period named. Public and other offices have their business seriously hampered. In many many cases the disease is attended with delirium and fatalities are frequent. A FREE EXCURSION TO THE COAST at this time of the year would be an acceptable boon to many a hard-working man, but as such an in- stance is hardly likely to occur in these dull times the next best thing a poor man can do, instead of getting change of air and scene is to purify his blood and cleanse his system with a few doses of Holloway's Pills. This wonderful medicine for many years has been a blessing to the com- mercial world, it gives tone to the system and purifies the blood and rapidly increases the strength of the brain. It also cures indigestion in its most advanced form and in cases of nervous debility it is without a rival.
WALES AND WELSH MEN. The death occurred on Wednesday of Mv W, T. Poole, of Gwynfe, Carnarvon. in his 76th year. At the Bettisfield Oolliery Mr Peter Jones, a Baptist deacon and father of the Rev Poter Jones, of Liverpool, was killed by the fall of a block of coal. The death is announced of Mr Lewis Williams, the harpist, who during the last thirty or forty years had been a prominent figure in Welsh musical circles. At the Wrexham Police Court & man named Edwards, who claimed to be a Methodist deacon, was fined 33s. for assaulting his wife, a separation order being granted at the same time. The cargo steamer Ivanhoe has grounded on Conway Bar. It was baund for the Little Orme's Head Quarries for stone, and is still lying high and dry near th outlet of the Llandudno sewerage, and cannot be got off without a very high tide. It is stated tba. Jr H. J. Bllis-Nanney. who has already been u Ne tted three t mes in Carnar- vonshire, will be asked to oppose Mr Lloyd- George, M.P., at 1 1 next election. Should he decline, Mr lssard \'ies, the present mayor of Carnarvon, is oxpc i to accept the candidature. On the Berwyn mountains, near Corwen, two masons, named W w J ones, aged 44, and John Richard Jones, f 16, father and son, were found frozen to, death. It is supposed that they were on their way home from Llanwddyn to Llandrillo when they succumbed to the intense cold which prevailed. Three publicans were convicted at the Llan- dudno Police Court for selling whisky which had been illegally diluted with water. The fines varied from 20s. and osfcs to 30s. and costs, each defendant having in addition to pay the analyst's f fee. At Llaurw. t two publicans convicted of similar offences were each fiaed 5s. and costs. At the meetings f the North Wales Calvinistic Methodist Assoclat.i-M :¡e!d at Aberdovey the Rev John Roberts, of T-vibca, was elected moderator. Mr Thomas Gee, w ose election seemed probable, telegraphed instn. tions to withdraw bis name from the ballot. A number of important recom mendations, dealing chiefly with the ministerial office, were laid before t Association. At a meeting of the Ab-u-gele Local Board the Rev. David Evans described how he and some of the principal ratepayers in the town had been c. horrified t. ni on Saturday public announce- ments of a wt;; r be given in the Town Hall on the following Muiday. It was resolved that the sanction of ti e Board should in future be sought before p- i mission to hold such concerts was granted. Mr St. John R s, eldest son of the late Post- master General, .lg (leclined the invitation of Flintshire Const iv,; ionai Association to contest the representati a of the county at the next election against M; S. Smith, M.P., the Associa- tion last week so; T- d and pledged itself to sup- port Colonel HeHoward of St. Asaph. For the borough sent M. Pennant will be the Con- servative candida Sir George Os', -r-e Morgan is throwing him- self heart and sc :I into the movement for suitably perpetuating th • jmory of the late Master of Baliiol. The br;j' u.nt academic achievements of the member for East Denbighshire are a house- nold word at Baltiol, and this, coupled with the the intimacy of his relations with Dr. Jowett, entitles his cou. Is to great weight in the selection of a con itmorative scheme. Colonel Hughe-, on behalf of the Denbigh bench of magistrates, delivered judgment in an action by the IDenbighshire County Council claiming from Mr David Jones JB260 for alleged damage to the Holyhead roid between Corwen and Cerrigydrui^ion by excessive weight and extraordinary tr die by traction engines. The court found for t: defendant with costs on all the issues raised. Or. behalf of the County Council a special case was asked for and granted. The Rev Dr Herber Evans, of Carnarvon, made on Sunday night the announcement-which has been awaited with much interest-as to his de- cision in the matter of the pastorate of the Con- gregational Church which he has held for about twenty-eight years. Dr Evans has decided to re- sign, and his resignation will take effect at the end of February 'xt. In future he will devote himself to his duties as principal of the North Wales Congregational College, located at Bangor. The Welsh Bard is still not without honour in his own country. Dyfed, the chaired bard of the World's Fair Eisteddfod, whose poetry has won for him not merely a chair but several acres of real estate in the Far West, has returned home, and has been honoured with a reception by the Mayor and citizens of Cardiff. It is only right and seemly that a bard should occasionally share in the public honours which the South Walians lavish upon their football players. Dyfed's supremacy in the Chicago competition has not been left altogether unchallenged, and in his ab- sence a very pretty bardic quarrel has been going on in the Welsh newspapers. Considerable interest was shown in a series of motions which came before his Honour Judge Lewis at Portmadoc County Court. They arose out of the bankruptcy of William Evans, an old man who appeared as defendant in a slander action heard at the last Carnarvon Assizes. A verdict was given against Evans for XIOO, which the costs increased to .£199. Upon application being made for the money bankruptcy proceed- ings were instituted. The Official Receiver now sought to recover .£4.0 paid by the defendant to his daughter and t58 paid to his solicitor in connect on with the slander action and to have declared fraudulent and void an assignment of certain leasehold houses. Judg- ment was deferred in each case. At Aberystwyth County Court, Louis Berni, an Italian ice cream vendor, living at Aberystwyth, sued Percy Dyball, described as a gentleman, for £ 5, for three casks of Italian wine.-Berni said that Dyball, being a good customer of his, he gave him a bottle of Italian wine. Dyball liked the taste of it, and ordered two 12 gallon casks, which Berni got through his brother-in-law, in Bardi, Italy. The wine cost .£5, but the carriage of it from Italy to Aberystwyth cost between £ 7 «.t»h £ 3. When it arrived Dyball refused to take it, but was entered in court for the X12. He then went to the station, paid for the carriage of the wine, halved the court fees, and thought he had settled the whole matter, understanding that he would not be charged for the wine. Berni, how- ever, again entered him in court for the £ 5, and the Judge held that plaintiff was entitled to re- cover, and gave a verdict for the amount claimed with costs. FASHIONABLE MARRIAGE AT ST. AsAPH.-On Tuesday afternoon, the city of St. Asaph was en fete on the occasion of the marriage of Miss May Edwards, daughter of the Very Rev H. G. Edwards, late Dean of Bangor, to the Rev Alfred Edward Green-Price, fourth son of the late Sir Richard Green-Price, of Norton Manor, Presteign, Radnorshire. The ceremony took place in the parish church, which long before half-past two was crowded with guests and others interested. The bride (who was attired in a dress of rich white satin, the bodice being entirely covered with Brussels point lace, and wore a tuille veil with a wreath of orange blossoms, with a diamond star and brooch, the latter being the gift of the brides- groom) was given away by her cousin, Mr Frank Ectwarcis, N.t". The tram ot the bride was held by Master Laidley, youngest son of the Bishop of St. Asaph. The Rev H. C. Green-Price was best man. The ceremony was performed by the Bishop of St. Asaph (uncle of the bride), assisted by the Rev S. Rees and the Rev Henry Jones, Vicar- Choral. The service was fully choral. The wedding presents formed a magnificent collection, and were laid out in one of thd reception-rooms at the Palace, where, during the afternoon, they were greatly admired by the inhabitants of the city.
In the November number of Night and Day Dr Barnardo supplies a striking series of details concerning the work of child-rescue with which his Homes have been for 28 years past associated. The rescue cases, illustrated with engravings from photographs, prove to demonstration how urgent is the necessity which still exists, even in these days when the children are coming into their rights, for the continued and extended labours of such Institutions as Dr Banuurdo's.
IN PARLIAMENT. MONDAY. In the House of Commons Sir U. Kay-Shuttle- worth informed Sir E. A. Bartlett that all the ten battleships provided for under the Naval Defence Act would be completed early in 1894. The House again went into Committee on the Local Government Bill. Mr H. Fowler's amend- ment providing that there should be a parish council ior every parish with a population of 200 or upwards was carried by 203 to 134. Mr Fowler moved another amendment that an order of the county council might provide, if the parish meeting consented, for establishing a parish council in a rural parish having a population less than 200, and also provide for grouping a parish with some neighbouring parish or parishes under a common parish council with the consent of the parish meeting. The right hon. gentleman accepted an amendment moved by Mr Henea^e adding words to the effeet that a parish with°a population of less than 100 the county council should determine whether it should have a parish council or not; and, thus amended, the Govern- ment amendment. wcis agreed to. After further discussion clause 1 was passed, and some amend- ments to clause 2 were also disposed of. The House of Lords sat nearly two hours dis- cussing the Sea Fisheries (Scotland) Regulation Bill, which was eventually read a second time. TUESDAY. In the House of Commons Mr Asquith, replying to a question as to the committal of several persons to prison at Stroud for non-payment of fines imposed under the Vaccination Acts-in some cases second fines,—said he regretted the state of the law on the subject, and the Govern- ment had introduced a bill to alter it; but if he were to remit the penalties he should be in fact repealing an Act of Parliament. The House again went into Committee on the Local Govern- ment Bill. Mr W. M'Laren moved an amend- ment to include married women ratepayers among the persons entitled to vote for Parish Councils. Mr H. Fowler said he intended at the proper time to insert a new clause removing altogether the disqualification of married women in respect of local government elections. Mr A. J. B-ir'our said if this was done it would make it impossible in the future to keep those women off the Parlia- mentary register, and Mr Chamberlain said he should certainly oppose the extension of the franchise to women in municipal elections. Mr M'Laren's amendment was then withdrawn. Mr Courtney moved an amendment to give effect to the cumulative system of -voting. The amend- ment was strongly opposed by the Government and was rejected by lid to 114. WEDNESDAY. The House of Commons again went into Com- mittee on the Local Government Bill. To the proposal that the proceedings should begin not earlier than six or later than eight o'clock in the evening Sir R. Paget moved an amendment that, the proceedings should begin at such time as the parish meeting itself should decide. The amend- ment was rejected by 219 to 106. Clause 2 was still under discussion when the hour for adjourn- ment arrived. THURSDAY. In the House of Commons Mr Mundella made a statement about the havoc caused by the recent gales. The Board of Tiade, he said, had received returns showing a loss of 237 lives, and additional returns were coming in hourly. The number of persons reported to have been saved was 5o8— 105 of these by lifeboats,—and the Royal National Lileboat Institution claimed that 102 lives had been saved in addition to those of which the Board of Trade had returns. The right hon. gentleman added that the Lifeboat Institution was managed better than any other institution of a similar character. In reply to Mr Labouchere, Mr Gladstone said the Government intended t carry into effect in the spirit in which it was adopted the resolution of the House in regard to the county magistracy, but the method of doing so must be in accordance with the machinery at the disposal of the Executive. On the order for the third reading of the Employers' Liability Blil Mr Chamberlain said that when the bill passed employers would insure, and the result would be to get rid of whatever inducement of self-interest there now was to take precautions against acci- dents. If the Government would not face and settle the question of compensation for all classes of accidents, they might have left the free force of voluntary arrangements fair play. Mr Asquith defended the measure in a speech of some length. The bill was eventually read a third time amid cheers. FRIDAY. In the House of Commons Mr Gladstone in- formed Mr W. Johnston that the Government had not at present in contemplation any plan for setting up a residence for the Duke of York in Ireland. Her Majesty's Government, however, were of opinion that it was a matter of national importance that the best relations should be established between the Royal Family and the people of Ireland. Mr J. K. Hardie asked leave to move the adjournment of the House in order to discuss the question of the widespread want of employment in the country, but permission was refused by 142 to 44. The House again went into Committee on the Local Government (Parish Councils) Bill. Mr Fowler moved an amendment that no person should be disqualified by sex or marriage from being elected a member of a Parish Council, and after a short discussion it was carried amid cheers. In th House of Lords the Employers' Liability Bill was read a first time, and the second reading was fixpd for Thursday next. On the motion of the Earl of Morley the House passed by 35 to 22 a resolution declaring that it was desirable that a Select Committee should be appointed to join with a Committee of the House of Commons in considering the equitableness of the better- ment" principle.
A WREXHAM SLANDER ACTION. At the Wrexbam County Court. Sir Horatio Lloyd heard an action for slander. The plaintiff was Thomas Frederick Davies, hairdresser, and the de- fendant John Liversage, grocer and provision dealer, both of Wrexham. It was a remitted action from the Hi?h Cour: plaintiff claiming £ 50 damages on the ground that the defendant had stated to several per- sons that he (piaiutiff) had been thrashing his wife." Plaintiff who occupies a private house next to defend- ant's shop, sta,t, d that early on the morning of July 6 he was awakened by hearing a girl scream iu the house and saying there was a person in her room. The girl came into plaintiff's room and continued screaming, and he then went to the window and called tha police. Defendant came out, and plaiu- tiff a-ked him to go round through the back door and see if all was safe, which he did. On the f-llowin? morning plaintiff called at defendant's shop to thank him, when defendant told him that he (plaintiff) had been thrashing his wife, and must not come there telling him his lies, as he didn't believe it was the girl at all who had made the noise." A number of witnesses having being called for the plaintiff, the defendant pleaded justification stating that on the night in question he heard a woman screaming, and on opening his bedroom door he heard a boy's voice saying Don't, father." One of defendant's witnes- ses ( Alfred Lee ) stated that he heard the plaintiff's servant girl say that it was her master and mistress who had been quarrelling.—His Honour said the plain- tiff's character had been vindicated, and gave judg- ment for ten guineas and costs.
+ AN EXTRAORDINARY CASE. Ashworth Read, a manufacturer at Burnley, and Elizabeth Ann Remington, a servant girl who was formerly in his employment, were tried at Liverpool ASEize8 on a charge of child murder. The body of the child was found in a wood known as Dark Hole Clough, near Blackley, wrapped in a piece of brown piper. The appearance of the body was quite con- sistent with death from asphyxia, from convulsions, or some other ailment, and as there was no indrcation that via'ence had been resorted to the coroner's jury which held an inquest on the body returned a verdict of deuth from natural causes. It afterwards appeared that thd girl Remington was the mother of the child. She and Read had been often seen together before and after the child's death, and this and other cir- cumstances—the most important of which was a con- fession by the girl that her fellow-prisoner had murdered the child—were considered to justify their arrest and their committal for trial at the assizes. At the close of the case for the pro-ecution coun&el for the defence submitted that there was no case for them to answer. In this view the learned Judge con- curred, and the jury returned a verdict of not guilty nainat both prisoners.
