KEMBI.E PrPE. "-The people of Hereford- shire call the last pipe of tobacco they take at a sitting a "Kemble-pipe." This custom is in memory of a Roman Catholic priest, hanged in 1679. in his eightieth year, being absurdly implicated in that monstrous plot of Titus Oates. This Kemble was an ancestral relative of John Kemble and Mrs Siddons, and is said to have gone to be hanged with a pipe of tobacco in his fist. Father Kemble was buried near Monmouth, and annual pilgrimages are made to his tomb by Catholics in the district. One of the hands of the deceased priest is I preserved in the Catholic Church at Hereford.

I LOTS MORE LIKE IT.

I MUCH MARCLE.
