FOR WOMEN FOLK. r — ,• m > Womely Hints & Dainty i- Dishes. WITH PARS. INTERESTING TO THE MERE MAN. If sheets and tablecloths are wrung by patting the selvedge tnrough the wringer, the edges will not curl up and they will iron much eaaier. Warts may be cured by rubbing them three or four times a day with a potato. Cut off the end and rub the wart with the freshly eat part. A slice must be cut off the potato after each rubbing. Don't. it you are a girl, flirt with other firls' lovers at a dance, or sit out with them in secluded nooks; put yourself in that girl's place, and remember you would not like another to secure your lover's attentions. To remove rust from ateel rub the rusted article well with sweet oil. and allow the oil to remain upon it forty-eight hours. Then rub with a soft leather. Sprinkle with finely- powdered unslaked lime until the rust dis- appears. If your fat begins to froth when you are frying fish croquettes, or anything of the kind, you may know that the fat is not hot enough. Finish cooking what is already in the pan, and then re-heat the fat till a blue smoke rises from it before putting in any more. To Renovate a Brown Gladstone Bag. I Bab well with the inside of a banana-skin I and skim milk. Then polish with a soft duster. Methylated spirit will remove stains from brown leather. Rub it on with a, soft flannel, then polish. Kidney Cutlets I Cut some ox kidney into small pieces, and dust each with pepper, salt, and flour. Fry them in butter till of a light brown, and then turn them with the, gravy into a saucepan. Add a little stock, lemon-juice, chopped I parsley, and some small mushrooms. Let all aimmer for about fifteen minutes, and arrange on a hot dish in the centre of a border of mashed potatoes or a ring of baked potatoes. —" The Lady." Eggs and Tomatoes I Take six tomatoes, scoop out the centre of I each. and place in a well-buttered tin. Fill the hole in each tomato with an egg, taking care not to break the yolk. Cook in a I moderately hot oven until the egg is set. Serve very hot, sprinkled with finely-grated cheese. Character in the Hair I Women who are the possessors of fine, black hair are emotional and of very sensitive nerves. Coarse black hair is said to denote great energy, but an unenviable disposition. Women who have brown hair make the best wives, for they are almost invariably full of sentiment, impassioned, "high strung," loyal, and easily affected. Redhaired people are nearly always keen in business transactions, quick of perception, high-tempered and witty. The woman who has blonde hair is impulsive and loving, but usually fickle, although an agreeable companion. Persons with naturally eurly hair are said to be possessed of more lovable and sweet natures than those with wiry or straight capillary adornment. On most occasions the fact that we are looking our best is a wonder- ful incentive to good behaviour, and the woman with natural curls can discount her straight-haired sister many a time and oft. -1 Eggs In Cases I .Procure six fancy paper cases. Srusii over the ineides lightly with salad oil. Chop finely two teaspoonfuls of shallot or onion. Fry it a very pale brown, in a little drop of salad oil. When fried enough, drain off all oil, and put a little of the onion in the bottom of each case. Mix two tablespoonfuls of fresh white bread- crumbs with half a table-spoonful of chopped parsley, one tablespoonful of grated cheese and a dust of pepper and salt. Lay two teaspoonfuls of this mixture in each case, with a few tiny bits of butter on the top. Now very carefully break. separately, six Taw eggs into a small cup, then elide from the cup an egg into each case. Pour in enough good cream to cover the eggs. Put a good layer of grated cheese on the top, and bake in a moderate oven for about eight minutes. The tops must be a nice brown; if too pale, heat a salamander or shovel till red hot, and hold it over the top of them for a few seconds. Garnish the tops with little heaps of chopped parsley or olives. Serve very hot. On Washing the Hands I It is a very common practice amongst I cornea to wash the bands in water to which a little ammonia has been added. This is all very well if the supplementary processes are carried out, but the simple use of am- 3nonim in the water will make the hands rough and disagreeable almost beyond en- durance. Use the ammonia by all means, but do not forget that it is unfit for toilet use unless its effects are carefully removed by some suitable agent. As a cleanser it. is invaluable, but it is strongly aikalire, -destroying the natural oil on and near tile surface of the skin, causing roughness and a tendency to chap and wrinkle. After the use of any alkaline preparation —and remember that many soaps conta n alkali-the hands should be rinsed in clean soft water, dried with a soft towel, and rubbed with some soothing compound; glycerine and roeewater, almond-oil or diluted honey will do. This restores the softness of the akin and prevents chapping. When the finger-nails are dry and break asily, vaseline rubbed on after washing the aands will do a world of good.

LONDON EDUCATION The Bill Passes Through Committee. MR. LLOYD-GEORGE, M.P. & THE PRIME MINISTER. The House of Commons, sitting in Com- mittee yesterday, resumed the considera- tion of Clause 3 of the London Education Bill. The first sub-section of this clause in the Bill commences "The council of each metropolitan borough shall be the mana- gers of all public elementary schools provided by the local education authority within the borough," Ac. Mr. H. HOBHOUSE (U., Somerset, E.) pro- posed to leave out this sub-section, in order to insert "all public elementary schools provided by the local education authority shall have a body of managers consisting of a number of managers not exceeding eight, appointed by the local education authority, together with a number not exceeding four appointed by the council of the borough in which the schools are situate." SIR W. ANSON'S COMPETENCE. Sir WILLIAM ANSON, in resisting this amendment, pointed out that one of the objects of the Bill was decentralisation. He set up to be an educationalist in a modest way—(Opposition laughter)—and he had most carefully considered this matter. He believed that the only royal road to the effi- cient education of the people was through our local institutions. Sir JOHN GORST (U., Cambridge, Univer- sity) said that to his mind this part of the scheme seemed utterly impracticable. The elementary schools would be subject to three different sets of inspectors. Dr. MACNAMARA (R., Camberwell, N.) com- mented upon the ignorance of Sir William Anaon, and said that all his failures arose .from his la.ck of practical knowledge of the bearings of this question. If the Govern- ment persisted in setting up 39 conflicting autnorities the county council would decline to have anything to do with the Act. Mr. ERNEST GRAY (U., West Ham) described Sir Wm. Anson as a visionary, and his scheme as absurd. No man in close touch with the schools would have proposed such a fantastic scheme. Even at the sacrifice of party loyalty the Government scheme must be opposed to the end. (Opposition cheers.) The setting up all these 39 offices and 39 stores in place of one office and one store would vastly increase the rates. (Opposition cheers.) MR. LLOYD-GEORGE AS JESTER. Mr. LLOYD GEORGE (R., Carnarvon Boroughs) regarded the clause as so absurd as to be incapable of amendment except in the way the previous clause was amended- omitting it altogether. (Laughter.) The Secretary to the Board of Education had got himself into a maze of his own construction, and as he had set it up himself he should get out of it. No doubt, his intentions were good, but. as they knew, good intentions paved the road to darkness. (Laughter.) He (Mr. Lloyd- George) thought that after the speech delivered the previous night by Sir John Gorst the Prime Minister must have regretted that he had changed his oaddie on the educa- tional course at the seventh hole—(loud laughter)—for by so doing he did not seem to have improved his game. (Loud laughter.) If the Prime Minister and the President of the Local Government Board were to put their heads together they could change the clause. The latter (Mr. Long) was a good judge of a horse, and if he and the Prime Minister bought one Mr. Long would be an excellent authority upon its points and size and all the other features of the animal, and the Secretary of the Education Board, in case of dispute between them, would, pro- bably, be able to decide the point at issue, or, failing Sir W. Anson, the whole matter could be referred to the Remount Department of the War Office. (Loud laughter.) Up to yesterday the Prime- Minister had not heard of the Hyde Park demonstration, but by his suspension of the Midnight Rule he had, evidently, heard beforehand of the intended demonstration to-morrow at Epsom. (Roars of laughter.) Mr. HERBERT ROBERTSON (U., Hackney, S.). Mr. BRYCE, and Mr. PEEL (U., Man- chester, S.) urged the Government to alter the clause. AN AMENDMENT ACCEPTED. Sir WILLIAM ANSON confessed that he had been impressed with the difficulties that might arise. (Opposition cheers.) He was dis- posed to look favourably upon the amend- ment of the hon. member for South Man- chester (Mr. Peel). (Loud Opposition cheers.) Sir GEORGE BARTLEY (U., Islington, N.): Are you going to withdraw Clause 3 then? (Loud Opposition laughter and ironical cheers.) Sir WILLIAM ANSON replied that .it was never a pleasant thing to withdraw what he had put before the House in good faith, but he knew the divided feeling that existed on his own side of the House and the almost unanimous feeling on the other side. He hoped the acceptance by the Government 0? Mr. Peel's amendment would make London education work move smoothly in the future. Sir GEORGE BARTLEY considered the Government's conduct most extraordinary. Sir F POWELL (U,, Wigan) congratulated the Government upon having. kept an open mind. (Derisive Opposition cheers and laughter) Dr. MACNAMARA exclaimed that his capacity for bewilderment was exhausted. The amendment of Mr. Hobhouse was by leave withdrawn. Mr. PEEL then moved to leave out Sub- section 1 of the clause, and to insert the following: -"All public elementary provided schools within the area of each Metropolitan borough shall have a body or bodies of mana- gers whose number shall be determined by the council of each borough, subject to the approval of the Board of Education, provided that three-fourths of such body or bodies shall be appointed by the borough council and one- fourth by the local education authority." The omission of the sub-section was carried by 349 to 11, and Mr. Peel's amendment was adopted. Clauses 3. 4, and 5 were adopted. On the motion of Sir WILLIAM ANSON, Schedule 1. dealing with the constitution of the education committee, was left out of the Bill. Sir MICHAEL FOSTER proposed to insert in the schedule a new paragraph providing that the local education authority should prepare a scheme for the application, according to local needs, of incomes from endowments. Sir WILLIAM ANSON said the matter should be considered on the report stage, and the amendment was withdrawn. Dr MACNAMARA moved that there should be at least six women upon the education com- mittee. Sir WILLIAM ANSON said the number of women must be left to the local education authority. The Committee divided, and there voted. For the amendment 61 Against 124 Government majority 63 The Bill passed through Committee at 1.301 a.m. amid cheers. The report stage of the Bill was fixed for, June 8. The House adjourned at twenty minutes to two a m.
BUILDING BOflES. OF GREAT IMPORTANCE THAT CHILDREN HAVE PROPER FOOD. A child will grow up with weak and small bones or strong and sturdy frame, depend- ing on the kind of food given. That's why feeding the youngsters is of such great importance. The children do not select the food—the responsibility rests with the parent or guardian, or with you if you select the food for a boy or girl. The scientific selection of this food should begin as early as possible. That's when the delicate little plant needs the tenderest care. A well-known lady says:—"About two years ago my little niece was taken sick. When medica.1 aid was called one physician pro- nounced the case curvature of the spine; another called it softening of the bones, and gave but little hope of her recovery. For weeks she had been failing before her parents thought it anything but trouble from her teething. "She had been fed on porridges and soft foods of different kinds, but at last her stomach could retain scarcely anything. At this time she had become a. weak little skeleton of humanity that could not much more than stand alone. "The doctors changed her food several times until finally she was put on Grape-Nuts, which she relished from the first and ate at almost every meal and her recovery has been wonderful. She has been gaining ever since in streagth and weight. "She has eaten dozens of packets of Grape- Nuts in the last year and a half, and the child is now a rosy-cheeked and healthy little girl, still clinging to her Grape-Nuts. "It is plain the food has saved her life by giving her body the needed material to keep it well and the bone material to build with." Name given by Grape-Nuts Co., Temple- chambers, E.C. eIO564

SEWERAGE SCHEME. The Western Valleys Bill. OPPOSED BY COLLIERY OWNERS. The Select Co-mmittee of the House of Commcns which is inquiring into the Western Valleys Sewerage Bill met again on Tuesday, under the Chairmanship of Sir A. Hargreaves Brown. Mr. Frere, on behalf of the Newport Cor- poration, submitted that the prosperity of Newport entirely, or very largely, depended on its shipping, and anything which en- dangered navigation or the Channel would have very serious consequences. The outlet had been chosen without any reference to the harbour commissioners, and certainly without any t'eference to the Corporation of Newport. It should have been removed further down- perhaps, to a point two miles more distant from Newport. The evidence had shown—and particularly the evidence of the engineer- that the promoters had never taken Newport into consideration. The method of disposing of the sewage at present was less disadvan- tageous to Newport than it would be under the promoters' scheme. The Hon. J. D. Fitzgerald opened the opposi- tion of the Ebbw Vale Steam and Iron Com- pany and other large works situated in the Western Valleys, all of whom had joined in one petition against the Bill. He said he proposed to call witnesses in support of this petition and that of Nantyglo and Blaina, and finally to address the Committee on behalf of the Urban Council of Nantyglo and Blaina. He repudiated the suggestion made by Alder- man Raffan that the proprietors of the works in the Valley were influenced more by the question of rating than by the health of their workmen. The petitioners, before taking any hostile step, decided to consult an indepen- dent engineer, and they selected Mr. George Stranghan, who was not, to use the word of Mr. Balfour Browne, a "faddist," and was not wedded to any particular scheme, but was thoroughly experienced in all methods of sewage disposal, and recommended what he thought best suited the needs of a particular district. Witnesses would he called to prove that the promoters' scheme was impracticable and costly, and other schemes which might be substituted for it were practicable, and also dealt with the sewage of the district more cheaply. The cost of this scheme was LZ37,000, in other words, almost the whole amount of the assessable value of the area, which was £ 265,000, and this differentiated it widely from the Rhondda scheme, which had been cited in support of the present proposal, in that in that case the cost of the sewer was only a fourth of the assessable value dealt with. In the report of the Royal Commission on Sewage Disposal, the Commission stated that "after carefully considering the whole of the evi- dence, together with the result of our own work, we are satisfied that it is practicable to produce by artificial processes alone, either from sewage or from certain mixtures and trade refuse, such, for example, as are met with in Leeds and Manchester, effluents which will not putrefy, which will be classed as good according to ordinary chemical standards, and which might be discharged into a stream without fear of creating a nuisance." The suggestion, therefore, that they could not trust bacterial systems went to the wall alto- gether. They were also dealing with a dis- trict which was honeycombed with coal workings, and the danger of subsidence was very large. If they dealt with local schemes the danger was much less, because they had small sewers, made probably of cast iron instead of brick. It was a remarkable illus- tration of the unanimity of the opposition that the petitioners against the Bill, for whom he appeared, represented about two- fifths of the whole ratable value of the dis- trict. Mr. J. Fox Tallis, manager of the Ebbw Vale Collieries, which employ 7,000 people, stated that their works would be interfered with in a most objectionable manner by the scheme of the Bill, which would deprive the works of water which was absolutely necessary for the working of the collieries. Owing to the scarcity of land in the valley the colliery sidings had been constructed over culverts over the river, and if these culverts were interfered with the work of the collieries would be suspended. The bacterial system would not deprive them of so much water, and" if carried out properly it would be the better scheme of the two. Cross-examined by Mr. Balfour Browne, witness said he did not object to the sewage being taken out of the River Ebbw and carried in a pipe instead. What they objected to was that the water should be taken out. He did not know it was a fact that the only water that would be taken by the scheme of the promoters was that taken from yards and the roofs of houses, and was not aware whether there was a method of calculating the amount of water of which they would thus be deprived. At present the collieries were able to work in a dry season, but at a dis- advantage. and if the- effect of the scheme would be to reduce the volume of water in a wet season to the amount which they now had in a dry season the effect would be injurious to the works. Mr. J. Hutchinson, secretary of the Ebbw Vale Company, said the ratable value of the petitioners was EIDO,000, which was two-fifths of the total rateable value of the district. The proposed scheme would add 9d. to the district rate, and the bacterial treatment would add only a little over 6d. Mr. Gardner, secretary of Messrs. J. Lancaster and Co., owners of coal-pits at Nantyglo, Blaina, and Six Bells, said this main sewer would pass through the property of his company for a distance of three-and-a- half miles, and would seriously interfere with their works. Mr. Tilney, timber merchant, of Glan Ebbw, said anything which would shorten the water supply would be detrimental to his works. Mr. William Routledge, representing Messrs. Partridge, Jones, and Co., and Mr. Mollet, manager of a coal company at Abercarn, continued the evidence in support of the opposition. Mr. W. J. Davis, mining engineer, and sur- veyor to the Nantyglo Council, stated that some time after the Rhondda sewer was con- structed there was a subsidence, which neces- sitated the construction of an overflow sewer. Another subsidence afterwards occurred, which necessitated the re-construc- tion of about 100 yards of sewer. Mr. Gregson, general manager of the North Blaina Collieries, and. a member of the Nantyglo and Blaina District Council, said he was prepared to pledge the council to carry out the separate works they. had had designed at once. They could be carried out with much greater rapidity than the joint scheme was ever likely to be carried out. The Committee adjourned.
SEA-WALL AT NEYLAND. At a meeting of the Neyland District Coun- cil the question of framing bye-laws for the traffic between Neyland and Pembroke Dock was considered, with the licensing of pleasure boats and other vessels, fixing the fares, Ac- Captain Sharpe said they must be careful not to interfere with the King's -'harbc-ur-master or they might be made to look foolish.-Mr. W. Evans sadd something must be done, who- ever they interfered with. At present if a person wished to cross after ten p.m. to Pem- broke he was charged 2s., or any sum the boatman liked to ask, and he had to pay or be left.—It was agreed that the committee should approaoh the Pembroke Town Council and try and arrange bye-laws.-The Surveyor (Mr. T. W. Evans) submitted plans for the restora- tion of the foreshore, which had been washed away by the sea. It is proposed to erect a sea-wall, crowned by a parapet 3ft. high, for 500 yards from Gadarn's Old Yard, over Church Lakes, to within 200 yards of the church. The road will be 30ft. wide and have a footpath of 6ft. over Church Lakes. Where no foundation can be found piles will be driven, planked, and filled with rubble, and the surface metalled. Approaches to the beach will be left at intervals. It was stated that some such work was necessary, as it is the only approach from Hazelbea-ch to Ney- land for vehicles, and, moreover, the fore- shore is used by hundreds of dockyard men going to and from their work< As the sea- wall will protect much of the land and re- claim other land belonging to the War Office, it is hoped that the department will assist the local authority to defray the cost—about £3.000.It was decided to submit plans and see what assistance could be obtained.
FRAUD BY AN EBBW VALE COLLIER At Tredegar Police-court on Tuesday James Baker, twenty, alias AUred Henderson, col- lier, Cwm, Ebbw Vale, was charged with ob- taining 30s. by false pretences from the Mon- mouthshire and Cwm Colliery Company on May 15. > William James, book-keeper, stated that a lad brought a note to him bearing the name of Lewis Morgan, upon which note lit -ave the lad 30s. It was alleged that Morgan's name had been forged; Fred Rose deposed to receiving a note from the prisoner, and at his request taking it to the pay office. He received 30s. from the clerk, and took it back to Baker, who gave him 2d. Lewis Morgan, collier. Cwm, said that 30s. were due him, and when he went to draw it he was informed that it had been paid out. The prisoner had worked a few days in the same place as witness. He did not authorise prisoner to raise the money. Police-sergeant Jones received the prisoner into custody at Lydney. Prisoner expressed sorrow for his conduct, said he was hard pressed for money, had been without food for two days, and yielded to temptation. He had a young wife and child and a mother dependent upon him. There was a previous conviction for forgery and false pretences against him, and he was fined R10, or two months' imprisonment in default.
VILLAGE COURTSHIP A Singular Breach of Promise. THE LOVE AFFAIRS OF A I POSTMASTER. In the King's Bench Division yesterday Mr. Justice Walton and a common jury heard an action in which Itiss Lily Bardweil, a dress- maker, of Brighton, sought damages for alleged breach of promise of marriage against Mr. Harry Hammond, Great Hormead, Herts. Mr. Clarke Williams, in opening the case for the plaintiff, said she was a daughter of a respectable fariper. The defendant was the postmaster of Hormead, and also a job- master there. The parties had made up an acquaintanceship, and he ultimately proposed marriage. In one of his letters he wrote:—"Everybody is getting married up here, all firms aDd makere are getting short of wedding rings- Perhaps I shall not be able to procure one to-morrow, but I will try my best." urtiwately the plaintiff was in- duced to come to defendant's plaoe to assist him in his business, and remained in his place for seven months. Just before the day fixed for the marriage the defendant said to the plaintiff: "You will have to walk up the chapel alone. I shall not be there." Some time later he, without giving any reason, said he would not marry. Plaintiff said she had been acquainted with the defendant for seven years before the engagement. They had no disa,greetnents except the usual lovers' quarrels, which "are made up." They settled an appointment with the registrar to Perform the marriage. She had been a dressmaker in Brighton when he got her to come and help in his business. She took it as "fun" when he said, "You will walk up the chapel alone; I shall not be there." He added, "I and my dog will live alone." When he was asked his reason, he started crying. He said he did not want her to leave the shop, but that he would not be married. Mr. Justice Walton asked whether the breach was admitted. Mr. H. Smith (for the defendant): No. we admit the promise, and we are willing now to marry the girl. Mr. Williams said that this gallant offer after two years was news to the plaintiff. In the luncheon interval plaintiff did not accept defendant's offer. When she was living in Hans-road defendant said that if she pro- ceeded with the action he should make over his money to his sister. Witness, continuing, said that she had never heard until now that the defendant had said he was still willing to marry her. Witness also said that a friend had told her that defendant stated to that friend that he was going to marry one Rose Barker, who was her (plaintiff's) friend. That annoyed her very much. At the time when witness said she would bring an action the defendant said he would make over his money to his sister witness went on with the action. With her present feelings towards the defendant she could not marry him, but she desired damages for the ridicule he made for her in the village. In cross-examination witness said she had not called the defendant "A little devil." Witness admitted that she had walked out in London with a butler, but there was always a lady in their company. She had never walked arm-in-arm with the butler. Plaintiff's mother gave evidence that the engagement was well known throughout the village, and that the breaking off created much comment. Counsel for the defendant said that it was really a storm in a teacup. These two people had, during their courtship, been teasing one another, as usual, but at last one used the phrase You little devil," and then Mr. Ham- mond said he would put off the wedding. But counsel denied that Mr. Hammond had done more than defer the dewwing, or that Mr. Hammond had jilted her. The case was adjourned.
DARING THEFT BY A GIRL I At Wolverhampton yesterday Harriet Davies, twelve, of 19, Bennett's Fold, and Margaret Jones, twelve, of 122, Salop-street, were charged with stealin.g a cash-box containing over £6. belonging to William Robinson, of the Bull and Mouth Inn, Bennett's Fold. It was stated that on Sunday afternoon Davies told Jones's little brother that she knew where there was some money, and asked him to tell his sister to.go with her to fetch it. A little later Davies was seen in the yard adjoining the public-house, having scaled a wall. Robin- son's servant afterwards missed the cash-box, which had been placed on a sideboard in the sitting-room. After the theft Davies gave the little boy Jones 22s., which he hid in a yard, and 8s. 6d. to another boy, who also hid the money, as he believed it had been stolen, though the girl told him it had been found by her. Mrs. Davies also received 6s., which ehe gave to the police on learning of the robbery.—Detective sergeant Vincent said the box had been broken open with a brick, and he had found Xi 14s 2Jd. under some bricks, and a penny in a drain pipe.—Davies said she and Jones went into the house, and the lattter took the box away under her pina- fore.-Daviee was convicted a few days ago, and it waa stated that she suffered from bad surroundings. She was remanded for a week, with a view to being sent to a reformatory, and Jones was discharged.
CHARGE AGAINST PECULIAR PEOPLE I At the close of an inquest at Barking on Monday night the jury returned a verdict that the death of Emily Moon, nine years of age, was caused by the culpable negligence of the parents in not calling in medical aid." The Coroner committed William Thomas Moon and Sarah Moon, father and mother of the child, for manslaughter, they having stated in evidence that they did not call in a doctor because they believed that if the child was to live she would be restored to health in answer to prayer. The parents were brought up at the West Ham Police-oourt yesterday morning and were remanded.

PEMBROKESHIRE WAR MEMORIAL I A public meeting was held at the Masonic- hall, Milford Haven, convened by the chair- man of the urban council (Mr. G. S. Kel- way), to take steps to promote a county memorial to Pembrokeshire men who lost their lives in South Africa. Dr. Griffith (chair- man of the Pembrokeshire County Council) moved, and Colonel Roberts seconded, that Milford Haven and Hakin should assist in the promction of a county memorial. On the motion of Mr. J. B. Gaskell, seconded by the Vicar of Milford, a committee was formed to obtain subscriptions. Mr. G. H. D. Birt suggested that Earl Cawdor and the central committee should take steps to secure a cap- tured Boer gun, to be put in some central position in the county town of Haverfordwest.

A MUSIC-HALL ARTISTE ROBBED At Southwark Police-court, London, yester- day (before Mr. Paul Taylor) William Hall, 33, smartly dressed, describing himself as a chef at the Marlborough Club, Pall Mall, was charged with stealing 8a., a powder puff, handkerchief, keys, and other articles from Miss Blanche Hay, music-hall artiste, of 33, Trentrroaid, Brixtoon.-Proeecutrix said that the previous night at half-past eleven she, with some friends, was on an omnibus pro- ceeding over Westminster Bridge. The prisoner was sitting next to her. She turned round to talk to a. friend, felt something, and saw the prisoner remove his hand from the bag, which was suspended from her waist belt. She found that the contents had been taken.—Beanie Hill, the wife of a music-hall artiste, of 15, Loughborough-road, said she was. with prosecutrix. When Miss Hay called out that she had been robbed the prisoner left the omnibus. Witness followed, and saw the prisoner run and turn a corner. A gentleman caught him and gave him into custody.-Th-o Prisoner: I should like to men- tion a circumstance to you. I was out aJl day yesterday, and was very intoxicated last night. I havei never had a slur on my character yet. It must have been done in a drunken fit.-Mr. 06ates (the clerk) pointed out that the prisoner was described as a chef at the Marlborough Club.-Mr. Paul Taylor: Are you the person you describe yourself as being? Is this your correct description?— The Prisoner: Yes; I have the highest testi- monials, and this is the first time I have ever been in a police-oourt.—Mr. Paul Taylor granted a remand.
A REMARKABLE TEST OF MEDICINES I A remarkable test of medicines upon those very common ailments, indigestion and biliousness, has just been made by a woman named Dixon, living in the little village of Crostwight, East Norfolk. She has lived in the house she now tenants for twelve years, and for twenty-five years before that she lived in another cottage quite near her present home. During the whole of that time, up to a few months back, she was known as a suf- ferer from chronic indigestion and bilious- ness. Sickness and pain followed the taking of food, and often she could not get food to remain on her stomach. Palpitation and headache were also present. So delicate was she and so soon was she made ill, that her husband could not smoke his pipe indoors as the smoke brought upon his wife an attack of retching. She had eight doctors in succession, and when they failed to cure her, she commenced to "doctor herself," as she terms it. She carefully and patiently gave seventeen various remedies a prolonged trial. After taking the sixteenth for a long time ehe had to admit that she was as bad as when she started. The seventeenth medicine was the vegetable remedy now known as Charles Forde's bile beans, and, to her delight, this specific cured her. The affair has recently been much discussed, and a "Norwich Mercury" representative has written an interesting account of it. Asked by him if her cure was complete, Mrs. Dixon said, "I am now quitle free from the ailments which have bothered me through life. My daughter persuaded me to try bile beans. I improved after the first few doses, and gradually, but surely, they have made this great change in me." e9551
AN OFFICER CASHIERED I Lieutenant James Gourlay, of the Army Service Corps, was recently tried by court- martial on charges of neglect and misconduct prejudical to good order and military dis- cipline in connection with the discharge of his duties at the Army Service Supply Depot at Aldershot. The findings of the court were promulgated yesterday afternoon in the presence of all the officers of the corps. The prisoner was found guilty, and sentenced to be cashiered out of the army.

SPORT OF THE DAY Mr. L. de Rothschild has secured second call on the services of J. Murray, after the stable of B. W. Armstrong, the Penrith trainer, to whom the boy is apprenticed. Nat Robinson, the jockey, found it impos- sible to keep his weight down under 9st., and, therefore, has again relinquished public riding. It is, however, probable that in the near future he will accept a proffered re- tainer to train abroad.. Apropos of the running of the King's horse in the Derby, the fA-Ct may be recalled that among British Sovereigns Charles II. was the first Monarch who entered and ran horses in his own name. Queen Anne was passionately fond of racing, and also ran horses in her own name. Indeed, it is to the Stuarts, and especially James I., that the credit is due of establishing horse-racing on a large scale. George I. was the first Sovereign to substitute specie for the gold cups given by Royalty. Mr. W. A. H. Bass, of the 10th Hassars, the owner of Sceptre, has engaged the English jockey T. Melsom to ride for him in India next season. Melsom haa already arrived, and he took out three ponies from England with him for Mr. Bass, who also recently pur- chased the Arab pony Huddal, with a view to winning the next Army Cup at Lucknow. The price paid for the latter was 3.200 rupees. Mr. Bass has engaged Bleach as his private trainer in India, and the training quarters are at Poona. Melsom, who rides in the Yankee fashion, won several races in England in 1900. MASTERS OF FOXHOUNDS' ASSOCIATION. Lord Yaa-borough presided at the annual meetings of the Masters of Foxhounds' Associa- tion, held at Tattersall's, Knightsbridge, on Monday. A sub-committee appointed to deal with the question of distemper reported that, though various experiments had been made during the year, no method of rendering whelps immune from distemper had been dis- covered. In consequence, and after the views expressed by my masters of hounds, they did not feel justified in recommending that the present arrangement with Dr. Bloxall should be continued. Mr. W. M. Wroughton thought it was a pity the experiments should be dropped, and volunteered to carry them on if he received some assistance from indivi- dual members. Lord Yarborough presented to the Rev. Cecil Legurd, editor of the "Fox- hounds Kennel Stud Book," a portrait of him- self in oils, the work of Professor Herkomer (which has been hung in the Royal Academy), as some recognition of what he had done for htmting and hunting methods during his twenty years of editorship.
THE MORGAN FORGERIES. Missing Count Arrested at I Alexandria. About a fortnight ago Alderman Burnett at the Guildhall, London. granted warrants for the apprehension of several City men in con- nection with alleged extensive frauds and forgeries in bills of exchange on Mr. Pierpont Morgan and other shipping firms. On Tues- day information was cabled to the detective department of the City Police at Old Jewry that an Italian, styling himself as a count, and who is well known in shipping circles and amongst the financial men in the Oity, had been arrested by a London detective- inspector at Alexandria. He was, however, on a French vessel that was in quarantine, and he asserted be was a French subject. Accused was accordingly handed over to the French police, and is detained at Beyront. The extradition papers have been forwarded to Rome, and also to the Ottoman Empire, and witnesses for identification will be sent out. The British, Italian, and French Ambas- sadors are acting in concert.
LORD WINDSOR AS AUTHOR Lord Windsor is the subject of the "Celebrities at Home article in the "World" this week, the home in this case being his lordship s town house, 54, Mount-street. W. The house is in the style of William and Mary, and the walls are faced through- out with Penarth alabaster. In the library the dispatch-boxes and wicker basketa full of formidable official files are decidedly sug- gestive of hard work. "Not only does Lord Windsor efficiently discharge the duties placed upon him as a member of the Government, but he has since his appointment devoted & great deal of his leisure to the laborious task of preparing for the press a handbook dealing with the works of John Constable for Walter Scott and Co.'s series of The Makers of British Art.' The volume will be pub- lished this season, and will contain numerous illustrations of Constable's best known works and the most up-to-date information about the life of that great master of landscape." Lord Windsor is a connoisseur in pictures, and the article describes the art treasures at Mount-street, some of which were painted by Lady Paget, Lady Windsor's mother. It is interesting to note that at Eton the same time as Lord Windsor was Mr. St. John Brod- rick. His lordship is himself an artist, and was trained by Mr. Sam Evans, the drawing master at Eton, whose methods, in his opinion, left little to be desired.

DISREPUTABLE CONDUCT AT RUDRY Larking on the 9th inst. led to two young men-to wit, Benjamin Saunders, Caerphilly, and John Matthews, Bedwas—being charged at Caerphilly Police-court on Tuesday with steal- ing 4d. worth of sweets, the property of Mrs. Eliza Jenkine, a small shopkeeper, of Rudry. The evidence showed that defendants visited the shop, which wae in charge of Mrs. Jenkins's married daughter, and, after behaving in a disorderly manner, Saunders got inside the counter and put a handful of sweets in his pockets.—The young woman in charge said defendants behaved in a most ungentle- manly way, and Saunders appeared to be the worse for drink.—The Bench thought they had been guilty of disreputable conduct, and fined them 15s. each.
I WOMAN'S FRAUD. I A Bogus Servant of Lady Wimborne's. CURIOUS STORY TOLD AT WESTON-SUPER-MARE. At Weston-super-Mare Police-court yesterday Elizabeth Williams, a. respectably-dressed woman, was charged with unlawfully, and by false pretences, obtaining from the Rev. Wil- liam Turner Long the sum of 5s., with intent to defraud, on the 21st of May.—Mr. Long stated that the prisoner came to his house on Thursday last, week, and said she wished witness to write a letter to Lady Wimborne for her. Her story was that she had been connected with the household practically all her life, and that Lady Wimborne's chef had obtained her a situation at the end of April at Raper's Temperance Hotel, Cardiff. This had proved unsatisfactory, however, and she only remained there for three weeks. She then came back to Weston- super-Mare in order to obtain another situa- tion. She was to have been cook for the SeMon at Tralee Boarding-house, but having poisoned her hand she could not fulfil the engagement, and so it fell through. Conse- quently she was stranded at Weston-super- Masre. She wished him to write to Lady Wim- borne for advice as to her future move- ments, whether she should return to Canford Manor or Arlington-street. She then asked him for 3s. whilst she was waiting for an answer. He asked where she was staying and what she was paying for her lodgings. Learn- ing that it was Is. a day for lodgings only, he gave prisoner 5s. in case Lady Wimborne should be out of town, and not able to send an immediate reply. Prisoner assured him that Lady Wimborne would send her plenty of cash, and she would then return the money. In reply to his letter he received a telegram as follows:—"Have nothing to do with the person you write of. Her story is absolutely untrue." He then gave informa- tion to the police.—Other evidence was given, and prisoner was sentenced to three weeks' I imprisonment, with hard labour.

FOOD IS POISON UNLESS DIGESTED The vigour of health depends on good digestion. Undigested food poisons the blood, which clogs up the skin, the liver, and the kidneys. Food properly digested makes new strength, new blood, new flesh, new life. Relish for food and power to digest it comes with Seigel's Syrup Compounded of fruits, roots, and herbs, it tones and cleanses the liver and kidneys, and clears the stomach of the decayed products of indigestion—the fruitful cause of head- aches, languor, brum fag, constipation, and anemia. Qapss It renews appetite, assists digestion, imparts strength and vitality to the debilitated organs, makes food nourish you. and thus builds health on good .j digestion. In spite of skilled medical aid, I was a martyr to indigestion for many years. I was always ailing, the least exertion tired me, and I felt drowsy, despondent.. and miserable. For three years I was a confirmed invalid, so weak that* I could scarcely walk across the floor." I As a last resource he took Mother Seigel's Syrup, and it gradually restored him to perfect health. So Mr. J. B. Mintoft, of Nun- nington, Yorks. recently declared in the presence of a Commissioner for Oaths. RENEWS APPETITE. After eating, I was subject to dis- tressing attacks of giddiness and heart trouble, besides which I suffered greatly from constipation-, flatulency, dizziness, and acute indigestion. After months of suffering, eight bottles of Mother Seigel's Syrup cured me. If ever I take a dose now I always feel better for it. It cleanses the body, and tones up the whole system." go. writes Mr. F. Crisp, of Haverhill, Suffolk. Thirty drops of Seigel's Syrup after dinner is a guaran- tee of good digestion.

SOUTH WALES BORDERERS MILITIA. The recruits of the 3rd (Militia) Battalion South Wales Borderers assembled at Brecon on Monday, and in the evening proceeded to Penally for six weeks' training. The old hands will go into camp on the 8th of June. CAMP AT ROSS. I The officers and men ot tue 4t-h North and 4th South Staffordshire Militia Regi- ments, to the number of 800, have arrived at Ross by special trains. A large number of people were at the railway-station to witness the arrival of the men. They proceeded to the camp ground, which is situated at the marsh near the town, where preparations had been made for their arrival by the advance party, who came on Thursday last, and where they will undergo their annual training.
OCEAN TRAGEDY. I A Murderer's Death Sentence Commuted. TWO OTHERS TO BE EXECUTED I ON TUESDAY. The Home Secretary yesterday afternoon notified the Sheriff of Lancashire that his Majesty the King had commuted the death sentence passed upon Otto Ernest Theodore Monson at Liverpool Assizes on the 15th inst. Monson, along with two other seamen, was found guilty of the wilful murder of the cap- tain, mate, and five members of the British vessel Veronica, whilst on a voyage from an Americaa) port to Monte Video. On account of his youth-he is only eighteen years of age- the jury strongly recommended Monson to mercy, and this recommendation has met with favourable consideration. Monson's sen- tence has been commuted to one of penal ser- vitude for life. The execution of Rau aftid. Smith has been fixed to take place at Walton Gaol next Tuesday, and despite rumours to the contrary no intimation has been re- received in official quarters that there will be a re-trial of the prisoners owing to the ill- ness of one of the jurymen at the recent trial.
I AN INTERRUPTED COCK FIGHT I ——— 0 At Rasharkin Petty-sessions, County Antrim, yesterday, fifteen men, chiefly of the agricul- tural class, were charged with unlawfully assembling, riot, and violent assault upon a police-sergeant and several constables on the 5th inst. Near that village on the morning in question the constabulary surprised a large party of men in the illegal pastime of cock- fighting, and it is alleged that while the police were attempting to disperse the crowd they were attacked with sticks and stones, revolver shots being aJso fired. After several hours' hearing seven of the defendants were returned for trial to the quarter sessions, bail being accepted in each case.

TRADES DISPUTES' COMMISSION The Prime Minister has settled the terms of reference to the Royal Commission on Trade Disputes, over which the Lord Advocate is to preside. They are:—"To inquire into trade combinations and'trade disputes, and the state of the law affecting the same, and to report thereon." It will be observed that the reference is somewhat limited, though it covers the question of laws dealing with trusts as well as with industrial disputes. Matters of policy are to be excluded from the consideration of the Commissioners, who will practically oonfine thei-r attention to the legal aspects of the question, endeavouring to ascertain what the law actuaJly is and to what extent it has been varied by the deoision of his Majesty's judges. It is understood that the scope of the investigation has met with the approval of the Trades Unions, on whose behalf Mr. Haldane has been acting in the negotiations with the Government.
LEAGUE AGAINST BRITAIN It is reported that a league for the defence of Belgian interests in the Congo Free State i is in course of formation in Brussels. It will be composed of engineers, merchants, officers, explorers, and all those who, whether by science, labour, or money, have for 25 years helped to create the colony. It is openly con- fessed that the league has been called into existence to stop the aggression of Great Britain, who, its promoters say, is anxious to cause trouble in the Congo Free State, and then step in and "nobble" it. Commenting on the desirability of forming a leagu& for the defence of Belgian interests, the "Petit Bleu" says it may be hoped that Belgium's initiative will be followed in Germany, Hol- land, and France, and, in fat. in every Erf rope an country which possesses colonies, "for none are safe from the insatiable appe- tite of England."

OEl TIOAROHÆOLOG0 Interesting Lecture to tjie Cymmrodorion. Exceptional Interest was taken in a paper read before the Honourable Society of Cymm- rodorion in London on Tuesday night by Mr. J. Romilly Allen, F.S.A., who dealt with the evolution of Celtic art from the Bronze Age to the Norman Conquest. Colonel Pryce- Jones, M.P., presided. The lecture was made of double interest by some 50 lantern slides illustrating the ancient forms and develop- ments of metal repousse work and figured work in stone, found in different parts of Celtic Europe. The photographic pictures thrown on the canvas included examples (mostly now to be found preserved in the British Museum) of cinerary urns, drinking cups, Celtic warriors' equipments, and other relics of early and late design and workman- ship. Whilst the Celts were splendid designers, they were wretched figure-drawers —a fact which the lecturer evidenced by views of figures on crosses to he seen standing in Ireland and elsewhere. Examples of early Celtic caligraphy were also thrown on, the screen, whilst views of capacious subterranean bury- ing places, containing the remains of burnt and unburttt bodies, occasioned particular interest. The entrances to these places were in Wales said to be associated with the crom- lechau. So far as Roman enamels were con- cerned, it was certain they were copied from Britain, and not vice versa. If Wales was to have a museum, the lecturer thought that casts and re-productions of every relic of Celtic art should find a place in it. An animated discussion followed. Mr. G. T. Traherne showed replicas of what were supposed to be Celtic spoons, made by Mr. David Lewis, of Talycoed, Llanddowror. These he presented for Mr. Romilly Allen's accep- teence. ■ The Rev. Daniel Lewis (rector of Merthyr Tydfil) was sorry not to be able to share the lecturer's belief that the things which had been spoken of and illustrated were neces- sarily of Celtic origin. He thought they were more likely to have sprung from other sources. Dr. Sherringham, of -St. Bartholomew's Hos- pital, Mr. D. Lleufer Thomas, and the Rev. G. Hartwell Jones also having spoken, Mr. T. E. Morris, in referring to the pro- posed Welsh museum, said that he certainly hoped any relics found, say in the neighbour- hood of Portmadoc or elsewhere, would be placed in the local museums.
