Get 31b. or 41h. of brisket of beef, tie round ritb. tape to keep in good shape, brown it. aither in the oven or in front of fire, pour boiling water over, enough to cover, and stew slowly (be sure it does not boil fast) for two &nd a half or three hours, according to size. Add onions, carrots, and turnips, a little paisley, a tiny bunch of sweet herbs; also, if hked. a few whole allspice, not too many.

Roast in the usual way. basting it well, and chop the bonea up, put in saucepan with a little water, and mixed vegeta.ble. to flavour for gravy. This should be done early, as the longer the bones stew the better. Chapped Hands. It is a fact that some textures of skin ch-ap more easily than others, but no one is wholly exempt, from this bothersome ailment at the present season of the year. The moat important act of preventiou is to dry the hands thoroughly. They cannot j be dried thoroughly unless they are dried slowly, aind this is where the trouble is met. People who take all the time necessary for washing the hands will often hurry through the drying. This means that the pores retain the moisture, and the cold stiff-ens it into the skirt. The hands should be pressed gently with the towel, not carelessly rubbed, and dried evenly over all the surface. Another precaution is to see that the haimis are entirely gloved before going out of doors. A minwte's exposure, if the hands are sensi- tirve, will resu lt in chapptng; yet nian7 people habitually wlLit until they are out of doors before drawing on their gloves. If glov-es are worn ait all they should be worn every day during the wimter. It is very easy cAn a warmer day to catch up a muff and thruut the hands into it, ungloved, but they are bound to be withdrawn, ajid the chapped skin follows th- ir exposure. Extremes of hot and coM water should be avoided in washing the hands. The quality of the soap has something to do with tt. too, and the rinsing should remove every trace of soap from the skin. In the matter of lotions, there are any number for selection. If one has nothing else, vaseline may xlways be used. Glyoeritrue mingled with roeewater to alleviate smarting is am established remedy. Various bottles axe offered ot the chemist's, and are more or less efficacious with different persons. A thin honey-like liquid solution of almond cream is extremely delightful and an -oaf ailing remedy. With aJl lotions it is not the quantity j Applied, but the thorrougharesB with which it Is rubbed into the skin. Old gloves are some- times worn upon the hands at night, butt sufficient massage with the liquid will remove any real necessity for them.

STORY FOR TO-DAY. 1 I Jack's Sweetheart. Aunt, you must listen to me! the proud I head is thrown back and the blue eyes flashing like sapphires in the sun. I will not marry Mr. Chester. I despise him! y? know well that if he had no money you would never admit him to your oouse! Oh, Aunt, I never even dreamed you were so mercenary.' I am not-for myself. It is for you, child-it is your future I am thinking of. I must die some time, and you know the con- ditions of my husband's will make it impos- sibie for me to leave you one penny. Could you bear poverty after enjoying all the plea- sures which wealth can give? Ah, child, it is a hard, bitter opponent to battle with when one is so young and lovely as you am I I have a profession, Aunt; I shall not starve, and even if I had no way of earning my bread, I would not marry a man whom I detest for his money." Perhaps you and Jack Dimgraven have resolved to try poverty together," suggests Mrs. Thornton. There is the faintest suspicion of a sneer on the "handsome mouth, but she is too well bred to allow it to become anything more than a suggestion. "Poverty with the man I love will be happiness compared with a blighted life. Aunit, do you believe in mercenary mar- riages?" Why not? I married the man my parents ohose for me; a man they knew oould give me everything my heturt deaired, and ae whose wife I would be a queen in society?" "Were you happy?" I The handsome brows contracted a. little. Yes, child; what = absurd question." I Ah, Aunt, I don't believe it! You were not as happy as you oould have been. Do you really think that I would be happy as Mr. Chester's wife? Let your heart speak." But' the inscrutable mask is on her Aunt's face again; that instant's agony is over. She had cast off the young lover who had her love for the wealthy suitor. Well, the world is no wiser. Why should you not?" she aays. "You would be mad to reject him, Beth. He can give you every luxury—more even than I can. He is old, true; but that is nothing. He would exchange his wealth for your youth and beauty. You could do no better. Even I. with all my ambition, would be satisfied with such a marriage. You have done brilliantly, exceeded my hopes. But you must forget Jack; he is poor—he could never make you happy." Is wealth, luxury, pleasure all one must live for? Is love to have no place in one's life at a.ll?- cried Beth. Mrs. Thornton shrugged her beautiful shoulders. When one is young one's heart is apt to take the lead in one's life," she says. "You are young, what is to be expected? Mr. Chester will be here this evening; see that he receives the answer he should." With this she sweeps gracefully*' away, throwing a significant smile at her niece as she closes the door. Ah. Jack," says Beth Kussell, softly, I wdll be true to you till death—through poverty, through everything! You doubt my love now, but some day I will prove to you how even a society girl can love!" It has been bitterly cold all day, and for the first time perhaps in many weeks the street corners are deserted. A warm house and a warmer fire are every stray pedes- trian s goaJ. And now, just at dusk, aa the lights are just peeping through the gathering gloom, a fine, cutting snow begins to fall. The usual crowd at the little station is dispersing; the bustle and excitement caused by the arrival of the through pas- senger train has subsided, and the operator is left once more to herself. She closes her key with a little snap, goes up to the blazing fire in the huge, ugly stove, and holds out her slender Viamrfa to ita warm radiance. "The petted darling of a wealthy borne and innumerable friends in a common serge gown!" She laughs softly and rubs ha.? up and down the sleeve of her di=. I wonder what Mr. Chester would say were he to see me now! Ah, poor aunt, I wish you oould have lived! But perhaps it is best as it is; and I am glad—glad you could not leave me one dollar! Poor, proud Jaok! When he hears that I-I. the supposed heiress, am poor, even poorer than he is, will he come to me—then?" The door opens and slams, letting in a cold gust of rain, wind, and snow. MI. Lenn, is that you?" she says brigthtly, as a. young giant of a fellow come towards her, shaking the snow from his clothing like a great dog. How could you remember me Ion a night like this? And no overcoat?" she exclaims. "Why, you will freeze!" His handsome face lights up with a smile that displa-ys a. dazzling row of teeth. Perhaps I stepped in to get warm," he says roguishly, and not to see you at all. Why, it was only yesterday that I saw you!" Then the brightness died out of his face, and some of the youthfulness goes with it. Ah, what an eternity that has seemed to me," he says, his eyes dark with earnestness. Every minute spent away from you is a black. I never knew what it was to count the minutes before you came. I never had this restlessness before, but with you I am calm: you quiet me; just one glance from your eyes—that is enough." She lays one soft little hand on his power- ful brown one. "Poor Lenn!" she says* eoftly, "I am sorry." He turns away and draws his hand across his eyes, then smiles at her in almost his usual light-hearted fashion. By the way," he says, I am afraid the bridge across the river just below here will not hold Eight Hundred and Two to-night if it is as loaded as usual. Well, I'm off; I m&y be back this way in an hour to help you keep away tie cold." He buttons his coat around his throat and draws his fur cap over his eyes; at the door he looks back and hesitates. I feel strangely reluctant to leave you here alone," be says wistfully. "Why, what could harm me?" Nothing in all Irenton that I know of- t but—would you kke me to stay with you?" I "How good you are!" she says. "But do you think I would allow you to go without your supper in order that you may protect me from unseen peril?" She laughs merrily. N-<),. Lenn, I am as safe ae if-as if—well, nothing can happen to ma, at all events. So go with a clear conscience." And this time he goes and does not look back. She shivers a little aa she remembers what he had said about the bridge. What a sud. den chill of terror his words had struck to her heart. The bridge wiU not hold Eight Hundred and Two!" 800 says to herself. "It is a through passenger, and will not stop unless I signal it. I must find out; it is not due for half an hour yet. I shall have time." She throws a Jong, dark cloak over her shoulders, and takes down a red light from the wall. With another glance at the clock she rushes out into the stormy black night. Down the track she speeds, the lantern dancing through the darkness like a will-o- tbe-wisp. The bridge is about a quarter of a mile from the station, but she knows every step of the way. Suddenly a deep roaring sound meets her ears. The river! The river!" she gasps. "Lenn said to-day it had risen fearfu-Hy. That frail bridge win be swept away as if it were a stick in such a fierce torrent." Now she is at the bridgoe-bot where is the bridge? The last of it is swept away in the block seething water as She reaches the ban.k. and at that moment another sound, beard faintly above the roar of the river, sends a new terror to her heart; a. distant thundering so?nd, and &he knows that the train is coming through the cut half a. mile away. Oh. God, for some otrengch r, she groams. "All these souls must not be lost!" She struggles on through the fearful wind that drives the thin, cutting snow in her face like so many erny lashes. On comes the express nearer, nearer. Gradueully the roar of the river changes into the roar of the on coming train. Once she stumbles and falls, and her fingers, stiff with cold, almost loose their grasp on the precious red signal; but she is up almost before she! touches the ground. Only a few more rods," she breathes, "end they are saved!" Now she can see the lights from the station, and almost simtrKaneoutdy their 'flashes around the come in the inky dark- ness the headligtrt of 802 coming down the track at full speed. With a last desperate effort she gains the station and standing in the centre of the track waves the red light frantically above her head. She tries to cry out-her voice is drowned in the roar of the wind and the approaching train, but the engineer's head was out of the cab window, he sees the slender wind blown figure on the track, her tragic white face gleaming in the dazzling glare of the headlight. He throws back his lever and gradually—gradually—the long train slows up and comes to a standstill, the engine panting and quivering hke a live thing and sending out volumes of dense smoke. They are saved! The lantern falls from her > uumbed hand" and she sinks down on the track, shivering and trembling all over. There is a crowd about her in an instant asking questions that she is too exhausted to reply to, but among all the strange faoes she sees one familiar one that sends the blood to her white face and the light to her eyes. She holds out her hand with a little faint cry, and it is clasped in both of Jack's warm ones, and held close to his heart. Then she turns to the conductor, who is standing i-manediat-oly beeide her. "The bridge is gone," she says. The words come with difficulty through her white, cold lips. "I went down to see and reached here barely in time to save the train." When they all knew what had occurred wha.t a cheer is raised for her. Jack leads her into the station and brings the best chair he can find in the office, and seats her before the glowing fire. Jack-ber own Jack! And she has saved his life! A great throb of exultation goes through her as she sees him standing there so strong and tall and hand- some. Ah, now he knows how a society girl can love! She is almost dead with coM, but she smiles faintly at him, and then the white lids close, but not before she knows Lenn is beside her and has her hand in his and is bending over her, his young face white and a.nxious, and so between the two men who love her she gains consciousness after a little and receives the heartfelt thanks of all the passengers. Jack and Lenn have shaken hands cordi- ally, and Lenn, with a horrible ache in his heart, has gone away and left them together. He knows this is the man that Beth loves. but he bears it bravely. Beth is happy, and he tries to be glad for her sake. Jack has her hands in his and is looking into the sweet, shy eyes. You have saved my life. Beth," he says, and tne gay voice is very grave now. -Are! you going to make me wish that you had not ? I had beard of your oqnt's death, and, my heart. ached for you. but I dared not came near you. I waited to hear of your marriage to Kr. Ctoester, but I did not. Ah, Beth. brave little girl,, to face poverty when you could have commanded millions by a single word." It was for you, Jack,- she says in a. low II voice. "I loved you, and could I swear to love another?" Aunt tried very hard to persuade me to accept Mr. Chester. "Poor auni. she sigihs, and the shadowed eyes brighten with a smile. I have you, Jack." she says. You will never leave me again." Softly, "Will you?- No, eweethewrt," be says, never again."

I Policeman's Divoitrce. A PROSECUTION FOR PERJURY. This sort of thing is too frequent; it ought to be put a stop to somehow or otlfer, and I will do all I can to stop it," said the President of the Divorce Court yesterday, referring to evidence which had been given by a police-constable named George F. Donald, of the X Division, who in December last obtained a decree nisi on the ground of his wife's misconduct. The matter came before the court again as a result of the intervention of the King's Proctor, who asked that the decree should be rescinded on the ground that the peti- tioner had been guilty of continuous adultery during his married life with a. young woman who lived opposite to him in Clapton Park, and that he was the father of her child, although, when he applied for a dissolution of his marriage he swore specifically that he had never committed misconduct. The petitioner defended the case on the ground that it was one in which the judge was entitled to use his discretion, but after perusing some of the depositions, his lord- ship delivered the stern rebuke quoted above, adding, It seems to me & very bad case, in which there should be a prosecution for perjury. I don't think it ought to be allowed to pass." The case had not proceeded far when coun- sel intimated that he would not offer further opposition to the application of the King's Proctor, and the decree was accordingly rescinded.
CHIEF-CONSTABLE CENSURED In a case at Liverpool Assises yesterday, in which two women were charged with concealment of birth at Warrington. Mr. Justice Grantham called for a. copy of a. statement made by the mother-in-law of one of the prisoners to the chief constable at Warrington. It waø not in court, and the judge ordered it to be sent for. When it arrived, he com- pared it with the mother-in-l<&w's evidence before the magistrates, and remarked upon certain interpellations which appeared in the chief constable's copy of the woman's statement. It was most iniquitous, he said, that the statement to the chief constable had been kept back. Subsequently, when summing up, his lord- ship said the statement contained informa- tion that would have thrown doubt on the case from the first, and if it had been before the magistrates probably they would never have committed the prisoners. He never knew anything done so improperly before. The jury returned a verdict of not guilty, and the prisoners were discharged.

PULL DOWN LONDON I WORK FOR THE UNEMPLOYED I I All Men to be Paid, Work or No I Work. Mr. Keir Hardie, M. P the leader of the Independent Labour Party, presided on Wednesday at a demonstration at Queen's- hall, Langham-place, London, organised by the" Right-to-Work National Council," with the declared object of stimulating legisla- tive action on behalf of the unemployed. The hall was crowded. The Chairman said that the many evils 1 connected with our industrial life all had their roots in the great problem of un- j employment. Unemployment was due to had social organisation, under which men, women, and children starved for want of food, while thousands of their fellows were going idle because they were not allowed to produce that food. They could not wait for the full adoption of Socialism, but must see what could be done at once. He advocated as a beginning that local authorities should be given full power to do anything they found necessary to provide honest work for honest men and women. Mr. G. N. Barnes moved a resolution endorsing the principle that citizenship implied the right of every man and woman to have the opportunity to work for a living, and calling upon the Government to take such action as might be necessary to give effect to this demand. He said that they were asked to be proud that their exports and imports were growing, but the Liberal Govern- ment had been compelled to admit that all this growth of wealth meant nothing so far I as the wealth-producers of this country was concerned. Mr. J. Hodge, M.P., said they must not expect any great reforms from St. Stephen's unless that institution was re-modelled and; modernised. It was absolutely sickening to sit on the benches listening to the piffle that. was spoken. (Cheers and laughter.) They wanted Parliament to be, a workshop, and not a gasworks. (Laughter.) The Labour party would do what they could to modernise that institution. Mr. Jack Williams said that Mr. Keir Bardie had bad no help in his agitation on behalf of the unemployed from the man who made his name on that questiou--(oheers and hisses) —and now that he was installed in office the first measure he brought forward was one, not for the amelioration of the oondition of his own classes, but for the benefit of the middle oloesesr—a Bill for the equalisation of Loudon j rates. I Pull Down London. Mr. G. Bernard tyaaiw, supporting the resolution, submitted that the right to work was reaJly the duty to work and he would do the governing classes of this country the justice to say that they had done everything they could to make that duty as unpleasant! as possible. (Laughter.) They had made it 1 not only unpleasant but impossible. (Laughter and cheers.) Yet most people were not allowed to live except on the terms of work. He urged that they should demand from the Government that all men should! constantly get their living wage, whether employment could be found for them, or not. (Cheers.) The military army was not simply enlisted for war and discarded when the war was over. Why should the industrial array; be so treated? As to providing work, there was no difficulty about that at all. Knock down half London, proceeded Mr. Shaw. There's work for you. (Laughter.) Build it up again deoontly-there's more work for you. (lAughter.) Go to Manchester. (Ijarugh- ter.) Don't knock half Manchester down; knock the whole of it down. (Laughter.) It's a beastly place; nobody will miss it. (Laughter.) In most of our towns you could carry out the saane process. (Laughter and cheers.) The resolution was put and carried amid enthusiastic ebeers. Mr. Keir Hardie said in & last word that if the citizens of London a?d elsewhere would prove themselves in earnest on the question they would make it impossible for any Government to continue in office that did not provide a satisfactory solution to this quee- tion.
I Tradesmen's Signs. ACTION TAKEN AT CARDIFF. I At a, meeting of the Cardiff PubKo Worb: CcKnanittee to-diay, Mr. Joseph Ramsda-le presiding, a question arose with, reference to "tnradcBmen's signs which project over the pavement. The particular case before the committee had reference to the Royal Bar- lock Typewriter Oomixany's premises in West Bute-street, where there is a sign projecting five feet from the I Mr. Gbipperfield, South Wales manager for the company, said the sign had been up for about five years, and he understood that when it was proposed some years ago to reduce the size of signs the committee, im deference to the ratepayers at the Docks, decided not to take action. Mr. Harpur stated that such was not the case. A tradesman oou'ld put up any sign provided it was not a. nuisance or an eye-sore or obstruction. Mr. Veall sta-ted that in this case a. okom- I plaint had been made by a tenant of another ] part of the building. The. Ghairman remarked th&t the streets would become hideous end dangerous i.f these large signs were permitted, amd. the committee were bound to ta.ke proceedings when com- ( plakbts were made to them. It was resolved that the necessary proceed- ings be ta?km to 90t the MUM removed. Alderman David Jones called attention to a sign on premises temporarily occupied by Messrs. John W illiams and Sons in Queen-! street, and it was resolved that the firm be i written to on the matter.

DAKOTA DIVORCE. I QUESTION NEVER BEFORE RAISED Decided by Sir Gorell Barnes. I The chaotic oondition of the divorce laws in the United States was inferentially alluded to yesterday by the President of the Divorce' Court in his decision in the complex master affecting the matrimonial ventures of the English lady, whose maiden name was Pas- sing ham, and Mr. Charles A- Gillig, a citizen of New York, who was described as conduct- ing business in the Strand as "President of the United States Agency." As far back as 1883, when she was nineteen years of age, Miss Paesingham married Mr. Gillig. They bad two children, and then agreed to separate. The lady broke off all family associations, spent a year at a cookery class, amd then went to the United Sitates to earn her livelihood as a teacher of cookery, although she was the possessor of an income arising from am inheritance of I zC2,000 and an allowance from her mother. "She evidently believed that, having learned English cooking, she would be very valuable in America," the Judge drily oexmrneroited, amid loud looghter. After residing in South Dakota for 90 days, Mrs. Gillig obtained a divorce on the ground of her husband's cruelty and desertion, and in 1892 she was married to Mr. Edward Armi- tage, an Englishman, wbom die had known when he was an undergraduate at Cambridge. Seven years later Mr. Gillig also married again, his second wife being a widow, named Carrie Osgood. Petition for Nullity. I Last year Mr. Gillig-whom his first, wife had never heard of since her departure from England, in which country she has lived ever since her second marriage, by which there are four childrer-fvled a petition for the nullity of his second marriage on the ground that be was the husband of Mrs. Armibage. This lady sought to intervene in the suit, but found that she oould not do so-a fact which elicited from Sir Gorell Barnes yester- day the expression of a hope that the law in this respect would before long be amended- &nd then she petitioned under the Legitimacy Declaration Act for a declaration of the validity of her second marriage. The various issues raised during the hear- ing of this complicated case resolved them- selves into the question: Was the Divorce Court of this oountry to recognise the bind- ing effect of a. decree made in a State in which the husband was not domiciled if the Courts of the State in wihioh he was domiciled recognised the validity of that decree. The point was one which had Never Been Actually Determined I in England until yesterday, when Sir Gorell Barnes answered the question in the affirma- tive by pronouncing as valid the divorce and second marriage of Mrs. Armitage and also the second marriage of Mr. Gillig. In announcing his decision, the President said: I think this is an opportunity when I may make one or two observations. We are met with many difficulties on this side of the Atlantic on the subjects arising out of the question of divorce. In Scotland the law differs from that in England, while in Ireland divorce is not allowed, but only judicial separation. Differ- ences prevail also throughout the different colonies and in India. But there is one matter which enables a great dead of difficulty to be got rid. of here, aiIId that is a general recognition of the point that the domicile of the husband is to settle the question of what tribunal the parties in a divorce case must sue before." Guided by the Dakota Law. I His Lordship erplaainod that his duty in the matter before Mm was to give a deci- sion, based on the state of the American divorce laws, and he pointed out that when served with a nofice of his wife's suit in Dakota Mr. Gillig did not do whait he might have done by leaving the proceeding's un- noticed. In answer to the suit he filed am affidavit saying his wife was in Dakota without his consent and for the purpose of securing a divorce—facts which did not affect the ques- tion at issue, although it was tolerably clear that when Mrs. Armitage went to Dakota she had thought of the possibility of there taking proceedings for divorce. The costs of Mrs. Ajrmatage the judge ordered to be paid by Mr. Gillig. As to the coste of the Attorney-General, who had been represented by counsel, his lordship said he was not sure how to act. Counsel: We do not ask for costs, my lord. The Judge: Oh, well, that simplifies my duty. (Laughter.)
A Reasonable Bargain. THE PENARTH ROAD BRIDGE I IMPROVEMENT When the Taff Vale Bridge over Penarth- road was widened at the cost of the Cardiff Corporation. nothIng was said about the land underneath, which since the completion of the work has been fenced in by the com- pany. A deputation, consisting of Messrs. Ramadale, Jones, and Mildon, members of the public works committee, together with the town-clerk and city engineer, had an inter- view with Mr. Beasley, and, after discussing the matter, were able to come to terms, which. MT. J. Eamsdale (chairman of the committee) described at a. meet ing to-day as very reasonable. The sub-committee objected to pay a/nything for the land under the bridge, as they contended that its purchase was included in the arrangement made for widening that structure. Including the 110 square yards under the bridge, the committee i had acquired from the Taff Vale Railway Company 524 square yards, which would enable them to continue the widening of the road in the direction of Penarth, the price agreed upon being X75. The oonwnittee considered that a very reasonable bargain had been- made by the sub-committee, and "unanimously approved their action.

He invited Field-Marshals Yamagata and Oyama and Admiral Togo to the Kasumi- gaseki Palace, and conferred upon each of them the Order of Merit. In doing so he said:- His Majesty the King has ordered me to confer upon you this Order of Merit.

The recipients of this Order are limited to 24, and consist only of those deserving of speoial distinc- tion, and it is the first time the recipients of such an Order are other than British subjects.

Tokio, Thursday.—The ball a.t the British Embassy last night was a. brilliant sucoees. Despite inclement weather there was a. large gathering of prominent personages of different nationalities, many of whom are not often seen in public here. Besides the Court officials and dignitaries, the British residents of Yokohama and Tokio were strongly repre- sented. Beyond aai exchange of courtesies usual on such occasions there were evident signs of literally sincere friendships between the Japanese and British. The atmosphere of real cordiality prevailing throughout was the most prominent feature of the evening.

NURSE'S ACCUSATIONI Dramatic Denouement.1 REMARKABLE DIVORCE STORY I In the Divorce Court list on Wednesday the petition Scott v. Scott and Shaw was entered as defended, but when it was called on Mr. Barnard, K.C., for the wife, intimated that he could not put her in the witness-box to deny the allegations of misconduct. Mr. Priestley, K.C., who appeared for the husband, said that his client, Mr. Alan Scott, was married at Brighton in 1892 to Lillie Catherine Gillis, and two children, a girl and a boy, had been born. For a year or two they lived happily together, but in 1886 they went with their children to Malaga, in Spain, where the petitioner was interested in the waterworks. There they made the acquaint- ance of the co-Vespondent, who was living at the same hotel. In March the husband, having to come to London on business, wired I to his nephew to come out and look after the business. The respondent immediately invited Mr. Shaw to her room, and he ol)ent night after night there. The partitions between the rooms were very thin, and the nursemaid became aware of what was going on. On Mr. Scott's return they were all together with Mr. Shaw in the drawing-room talking and laughing merrily, when the nurse burst in: indignantly charged Mrs. Scott and Mr. Shaw with misconduct, and defied them to deny it. They were dumfoundered, and Neither Denied the Accusation. I Mr. Gillis was in a very critical state of health, and his daughter besought her hns- band, for his sake, not to inform him or take proceedings. The father had been a very intimate and dear friend of the peti- tioner, and he consented. His wife, however, allowed it to be understood thait the separa- tion which followed was her husband's fault, and her father treated him as a pariah. His children, who had been most affectionate to him, beoa.me alienated, and a letter from the sister to her brother showed that their mitds had been poisoned against him. When his daughter was married no one spoke to him, and her husband refused to have any courmunicaticn wilh him. It was obvious that wicked injustice was being done, and 'Mr Scott was compelled to institute pro- ceedings to vindicate his character. The evidence of a mece, taken on com- mission, described how, looking into the diawing-room from the balcony, she saw her aunt and the co-respondent sitting side by side on the sofa. Her head was resting on his breast, he was holding her hand, and they were looking at each other as if they were mad." The maid, who had come from San Prancisco for the trial, also gave evidence, and The President granted a decree nisi, with costs against the co-respondent.
