THREW HERSELF DOWNSTAIRS. Mother's Daring Ruse Restores Son's Speech. A mother's daring ruse in order to give her son the shock which was necessary to restore bis powers of speech is told by Corporal Tucker, of the 2nd Welsh Regi- ment, who became dumb as a result of his experiences at YplCS, where he was buried in a trench. Last Tuesday he was seated in his mother's homo in London. He was unable to speak and consequently very despondent. I was thinking of my hard luck," he says, when I 'heard my mother scream. Then came a thud, as of someone falling down the stairs. I got up, rushed to the foot of the stairs, and stumbled over my mother, who lay groaning badly. What I said or did I don't know. but I fancied I. called out, Oh, mother!' Then I swooned. When I recovered I found my mother standing in front of me, I was crying on her breast. She was quite cool and smiling, and was telling me to have a good cry, as it would do me good. In the morning I learned that my mother did not slip down the stairs, but had deliberately thrown herself down in order to givo me a shock. In doing so she bruised herself, but might easily have met with serious inj ury, as the stairs are very dangerous.
