Dear Sir,—For many years I have been suffering from bronchitis and Heart Disease, and although I have consulted with several physicians, and tried many remedies, I nave received very little benefit from them.

TESTIMONIAL FROM THE REV. R. H, DIGNUM. Neville Cottage, Pearl-street, Roath, Cardiff, November 24, 1384. My Dear Sir,—For the third time I have great Sleasure in bearing testimony to the continued fcnefit I receive from wearing your admirable Magnetaire Belt. Tome its effects are simply comforting and delightful. I can eat and digest my tood with comfort. That terrible nervous action with which I was troubled for years his been sub- dued. For months together I have been free from it. I also find the "Magnetaire" Soles a perfect luxury. The appliances are a blessing indeed to me for the last two years. I wish you success in your efforts to benefit suffering humanity. I shall be glad to answer any questi ns which anyone may desire to ask me upon the matter. With gratitude for the good I have myself received, with very kind regards, I remain. Dear Mr Lonsdale, yours most faithfully, ROBT. HAYDON DIGNUM. To Mr Lonsdale. WEAK LEGS, NUMB FEET, SWOLLEN ANKLE, AND WEAKNESS OF THE VOICE. 214. Pearl-street, Roath, Nov. 17ch, 1834. Dear Sir,-Some years ago I had an attack of cholera, which left a thorough weakness in my legs, numbness in feet, and swollen ankle, causing paiii and greatly inconveniencing me in getting about. I am pleased to ted you that after wearing the Belt and Soles I purchased of you during your last visit a few hours I began to feel an improve- ment, and after a week's trial the change was won- derful; my legs were altogether stronger, the swell- ing or ankle had gone down, feet free from numb- ness, and the circulation restored through my bod), I found it great improvement also in my voice, which was very weak; can now speak stronger, although it is ten years since my voice broke down. I am highly satisfied with what your Appliances have done, and shall always recommend them with confidence in any similar case.- Yours truly JOHN TAYLOR Builder. Mr R Lonsdale. RAMP AND RHEUMATISM. 157. Bute-road, Cardiff, Nov. 1 1884. Sir,—In answer to your inquiry about the Magnetaire that I purchased of you during your last visit to Cardiff, I am glad to say it has done me great good, especially in removing Rheumatism antl liramp, and soothing the several complaints that come with age. I also have known several who have worn the Magnetaire," and in every case it has relieved or cured them. If a rich person or two were to club a few struy sovereigns together and purchase some of your appliances, and give them to the poor and neeiiy, who cannot buy such earthly blessings, they could say hereafter, "They weresick, and I visited them." If any person wishes to know more about the appliances they may call on me, and I can give them some practical experience. Respectiully yonrs, GEORGE SADLER, Artist. Mr R. Lonsdale.

Dear Sir,—I wish to express my great satisfac- tion and to testify to the benefit I have derived from the "Magnetaire" appliance I purchased from you two years ago. After a very short trial I felt a glow throughout the whole <('111 and com- menced to lose the pain in my hip an.i knees from which I ball suffered acutely for three years, and bad tried all sorts of remedies without receiving the least good. But I can safely say. after wearing the "Magnetaire," I have since been entirely free from pain.

This uarantee feature was but recently introduced into our business system. Our customers who have heretofore found out- simple word about aoods sufficient, may not care for the written guarantee, bnt we g-ivc it all thesime, be- cause we want to establish relations of perfect con- fidence with new customers; besides, the register number of the guarantee ticket is an index to the date and details of each transaction, and useful for reference.

AT the present time Clothing so much de- notes the position of the wearer that to be in clad or clothed in garments that are badly made and fitted at once conveys an im- pression unfavourable to the wearer. It is, therefore, of great importance that all who study appearance should be careful to make their purchases only from such houses as make Style, Fit, and Quality, combined with economy, their leading features. Winter especially requires that change in our attire which is so necessary for the due protection of our health and comfort. It is, .therefore, of great importance that we should be supplied with overcoats and other warm clothing, not only at a moderate charge, but also fashion- able and well made, as well as being selected from materials of modern design and durable character. To these important requisites MASTERS and COMPANY have especially devoted their attention, and the reader may depend upon being supplied with all he re- quires at either of their establishments. Every person to whom economy is an object should certainly inspect their stock before purchasing elsewhere. The position occupied by this firm in the markets as the largest buyers of clothing m Wales or the West of England enables them fre- quently to secure goods at such prices as defy competition, it being an indisputable fact that the tradesman who can buy largest must buy on more favourable terms than the smaller buyer. There can be no surer indi- cation than an increased trade that the public duly appreciate fair dealing, and that the efforts of MASTERS and COMPANY to supply goods of sterling value at the lowest remunerative profit have been fully recognised is proved by the result. 102e LADIES who have learned Scientific Dresscutting, have no Dressmakers' bills this Christina*.— Scientific Dresscutting Association, 21, Angel-str- et, opposite Cardiff Castle..5
TOPICS OF THE DAY. _Hum So far as the reports go there is nothing to show that Mr Gladstone's indisposition is serious, and the whole country will hope that it is not so. The cause for anxiety on the matter lies, we think, in this that, apart from the fact that the age of seventy- tive is itself a serious illness, Mr Gladstone has on the present occasion fallen sick in the recess, and after a long rest in the country. Indisposition at the close of a long and arduous Sessions of Parliament is not un- natural. But it is serious if the Prime Minister fails to gain strength in the recess, and is in bad health at the beginning of the Session. Mr Holden has given a conclusive answer to the charge reported to have been pre- ferred against him by Mr Coleridge Ken- nard, M.P., viz., that he contributed to the Free Trade agitation in England so that the goods manufactured at Roubaix, in France, might be admitted duty free into England. Mr Holden does not manufacture in his French works any goods imported to Eng- land. Mr Kennard complained of being misreported in the statement replied to by Mr Holden. The repudiation of the statement, however, was not at all clear and as the report appeared in the Times and nearly all the papers in the country, as moreover Mr Kennard's alleged charge proves to be utterly unjust and baseless, some explana- tion is due from the junior member for Salisbury. According to the London correspondent of the Liverpool Mercury, Austria is pledged in honour not to advance to Salonica so long as Mr Gladstone is in power, a promise not to do so having been given to Mr Gladstone as a quid pro quo for the much denounced Karolyi apology. Bismarck irritated at .Y this, is paying Mr Gladstone oft. The Angra Pequina incident gave him his excuse. Iliac illce lacrymte. A Dublin" Official," who is given leader type in the Times, attacks a statement made by the Freeman's Journal as to the name- less scandals," with which the Castle officials have been concerned during the year. "One man only, and he not directly," according to the Dublin Official, was con- nected with Dublin Castle. The offi- cial is to be complimented upon his in- genuity in avoiding the point. It is, how- ever, well known that Dublin Castle did not supply all the prisoners in these cases. The case against the Irish Executive was that they took no steps to secure the proper ad- ministration of the law in these scandal cases that, on the contrary, hey obstructed the efforts of those who took upon them- selves the work shirked by the proper authorities, The result of the Tipperary Convention, held Oil Friday, is remarkable. Mr John O'Connor, of Cork, one of the ablest of Mr Parnell's supporters out of Parliament, and his nominee for the present Tipperary vacancy, was rejected by the representatives of the constituency, Mr Patrick Ryan being chosen. For two years Mr Parnell's power to nominate members in most of the Irish constituencies has been undisputed. He has usually exercised the power with conspi- cuous care and moderation, being most de- ferential to the wishes of the constituencies but there was evidently an opinion at the Tipperary Convention that he had acted in- discreetly in this case. We do not think the public are likely to underate the seriousness of supposed dyna- mite explosions. We therefore direct atten- tion to the fact that the explosion at Gower- street was not a severe one, and the damage done was slight. It is easy to reach the con- clusion that all explosions now-a-days are caused by dynamite, and that Fenians have a monopoly of dynamite. Let us, therefore, point out that there is not a tittle of evidence on either of these points in the case of the Gower-street explosion. Before dynamite and the dynamitards arose to distract the public mind, it was re- cognised as possible that such things as steam, gas, and gunpowder might cause ex- plosions. Dynamite, however, has robbed these of their old vocation and it is impos- sible now for anything to explode without the whole credit of the business being laid to the charge of dynamite and Fenianism. We suppose that the origin of this latest explo- sion is discoverable, but at the present time there is no official report upon the subject, and there has been more than one gas explo- sion on the Underground Railway. The Newcastle-on-Tyne people have givc-n up the idea of extending the boundaries of the city. It fit-, been found that the outlying districts proposed to be included were by no means desirous of coming into the city. The canny folk" of Newcastle,, however, have decided that though they cannot enlarge the boundaries, they will press for an increase in the representation of the city from two to three members.
THE very large increase in the number of pauper inmates of the Cardiff Workhouse would naturally lead us to the conclusion that there is a great deal of poverty in the town at the present time. An increase of 101 on the corresponding week of last year, when the number of inmates was 512, is at the rate of nearly 20 per cent., and it behoves the guardians to institute some inquiry into what is in some degree unaccountable. If we had had several weeks' hard frost, thowing out of employment those en- gaged in building and other outdoor occupations, we could understand the large amount of increased pauperism. But the weather, so far, has been in every re- spect highly favourable to work out of doors. True the work at the docks has been far from brisk, and many labourers have thus been thrown idle but this fact will scarcely of itself account for 101 extra paupers in the workhouse. It has been noted that pauperism is sure to increase in any town in the neighbourhood of which large public works are being carried on; and without actually knowing such to be the case, we believe that the presence of some hun- dred of navvies in Cardiff and its immediate vicinity, has something to do with the in- crease of 101 inthe indoor pauper list. Navvies are, of all classes of workmen, the most prone to give up work and go on tramp, leaving their wives and children to the workhouse until the tramping husband and father has got another job. But whatever the cause, it requires the attention of the guardians.
A CORRESPONDENT in our daily contem- porary, writing on the subject of a rate- payers' association for Cardili, thinks, "the only way of putting a stop to the reckless extravagance of our Corpora- tion and Board of Guardians is for the long suffering and heavily burdened rate- payers of Cardiff and district to form themselves into an association." This particularly well-informed correspondent then talks of "a corporation who cannot go to inspect a waterworks or reservoir without putting us to the expense of elaborate turns-out in the way of horses and carriages and champagne luncheons, &c." He is evidently ignorant of the fact that the last visit of the Waterworks Committee to the reservoirs and waterworks—the visit to which he apparently refers—was in response to the invitation of the chairman of that com- mittee, who paid all the expenses in connec- tion therewith, the elaborate turns-out of horses and the champagne luncheons in- cluded. But our contemporary was well aware of this fact, and in admitting the letter into its columns without appending the explanation we have now given, furnishes another instance of its persistent attempts to ignore the good deeds of gentlemen not of its own political way of thinking. Our contemporary seems to forget that in allow- ing those of its readers, who are unaware of the true facts of the case, to beliévethat the Waterworks Committee make such excursions and partake of champagne luncheons at the expense of the ratepayers-a charge was being made against the whole corporation, who are jointly responsible for the proper spending of the rates.
CARDIFF-BOUND SCHOONER ABANDONED. The French schooner, Sainte Marie Reine des Mers, of Nantes, was towed into Falmouth Harbour on Sunday. She was bound from Nantes to Cardiff, with pitwood. On New Year's Day she experienced heavy weather, and sprang a leak, and the water continued to increase so that when twelve miles off the Lizard, early on Sun- day morning, they decided to abandon the schooner. The crew took to their boats, the captain saving the ship's papers. They stood by her for three hours, when they saw the masts fall overboard. The vessel was then almost totally submerged. The crew arrived about ten o'clock at Falmouth. The steamship Victor, of Falmouth, subsequently observed the abandoned schooner, and taking her in tow, brought her to Falmouth, and beached her. and beached her.

Sudden Death of Mr Luard, Llandaff. I PARTICULARS OF THE SAD OCCURRENCE. I -I Theinquest. I REFERENCE BY THE DEAN OF LLANDAFF. I Biographical Sketch. The news which was received at Cardiff on Saturday evening of the awfully sudden derirh of Mr William Charles Luard, of Llandaff ttou p Llandaff, caused not only considerable surprise, but over Llandaff cut a gloom which tho city hns riot exl,erienced for soiiif,- 'iiie. Only a .short tiuw previously Mr Luard had been moving anion; them in his usual health. He had, however, been suffering from sciatica, and, acting -itici.r medical advic?, ho went to Ucumemouf.u ioi- a time, believing the chanyo of air wonhl (.0 beneficial. During h; stay at Bournemouth, was accompanied by Mrs Luard, Miss Luar, Ir Gerard Mauriee Luard, his younger vo As county treasurer, hiti presence W"1.1:: be required at Cardiff on Monday, when the magistrates assemble at the Town-hall for despatch of county business, as it was his dutv to present the variom reports connected wit. t;1 financial position of the county and 11, left Bournemouth on Saturday morning, intcmUn;' r,, spend the Sunday at Llandaff. When thev -eft Bournemouth, he appeared a* well as Usu i:. Oi. arriving at Gloucester, an ii-iterval of more than an hour occurred before the departure -.i the train for South Wales. Deceased was alwsvs a great admirer of eceiesiastical architecture, ana while Mrs and Miss Luard remained at the rail- way station, lie, in company with his son, paid # \i.r,tto the cathedra!. Here he points out many of the beauti«? of this grand old str>ic;ur and subsequently left with his son to return t. the railway station. Ti:ey had not proceeded f. r betore the son fe't his fa: her leaning heaviiy on liis arm. The, c.rc'iin-t, nine caused the son con- siderable fcunuve, as up to that moment his father had been apparently as- well as usual. The son called to his father, who was unable to re'.)!y. Some foot passengers in George street Some foot passenger!! in George street observed hiw, arId procured a chair from a dwelling-house, and two of them ran for medical aid, but he died in a very few minutes. As it was necessary that an inqueit should be held, the body was conveyed to the Spread Eagle, and on the coroner being informed ot ths circum- stances, he at once held the inquiry, in order the body might be brought on to Cardifl ti.t. night. A telegram Was sent to Cardiff b:iefiy staiing what had taken place, and and Miss Luard came on to Cardiff by the 10.30 train. Mr G. A. Stone, undertaker, had been coinm-.ini- cated with, and he sent a hearse to the station, br.t owing to the inquest being h?id. ti;o body was not despatched from Giouce.scer until the arrival of the down mail. In the interview a i ell had been made in which the body 'I and, accompanied by the son, it was bro- tu Cardiff. At the railway station, Mr Shirley, JUn. and one or two friends from Llandaff wore wait- I ing. The body was placed in a heaive and conveyed to Llandaff House, followed by Mr Maurice Luard and a few friends. All the residents of Lianuaff, on Sunday morning, had tlieirblinrlz5 drawn closely down, as a mark of respect, and at the cathedral the prayers of the congregation were desired for tilo iiic,iii-iiii, widow 0 and family, f,)r whom the greatest I sympathy is felt. REFERENCE BY THE DEAN OF LLANDAFF. I In the afternoon the Dean of Llandaff preached a sermon in aid of the Church Pastoral Aid Society, but before closing he said, quoting the words of his text, Arise, shine :"—It shall be our New Year's motto-it shall be be the resolution of the New Year's life. There is much to make it an impressive cdl to-day. We have been startled, we havo been stunned, by a sudden sorrow. The windows of (me of our chief houses are darkened—witnin it ure mourners, not refusing, but finding it hard, to be comforted. A beloved husband and father is laid low by a stroke of death in the midst of life. Half his home- ward journey yesterday was made by a living soul, the other half by a lifeless body. We have no words for a transition so sudden, for a shock so terrible. That stately and stalwart form will be seen no more in this congregation—those powerful and manifold energies will speak no more in their various departments of usefulness. We of this cathedral have lost our right hand in the management of its business-we shall long miss the experienced counsellor, the man so learned in human dealing, so skilful in suggestion of wisdom. But what is all this in comparison of the desolation of the home so suddenly bereft of its beloved and loving head ? That home asks your prayers to-day—sorely does it need them. Pray for the widowed wife, pray for the orphan children, that the Comforter may be with them this long, dark Sunday, a very present help in their great trouble. Arise, Lord, in Thy power thine, Lord, with thy beautiful light," till they can say first, "Thy will be done;" and then, "Thou hast done all things well." THE IXQUEST. I The inquest was held on Saturday afternoon, at the Spread Eagle Hotel, Gloucester, before Mr A. M. Sydney Turner, the city coroner. Mr William Fream was chosen foreman of the jury. The first witness called was Mr Gerard Maurice Charles Luard, son of the deceased, who identified the body. He said his father was a solicitor, practising in Cardiff, and registrar and chapter clerk of the diocease of Llandaff. He was also county trea- surer of Monmouth. He had not been in good health for the last twelve months, and ix weeks ago had gone to Bournemouth for the benefit of his health. That day (Saturday) they left Bournemouth by the 9.30 a.m. train on their way home to Llandaff. Having an hour to wait at Gloucester, he and his father went to see the cathe- dral, leaving his mother and sister at the station. The deceased and witness went through the cathedral, and then started back for the station. On arriving at Mr Hatton's brewery, George- street, he felt his father lean heavily on his arm. He looked to his father's face and óaW that he was unable to speak. On seeing him taken ill, someone came out of a house with a chair on which the deceased was placed. Witness unfastened his collar and medical assistance was at once sent for. Mr Edis, surgeon, and Mr Sidney Turner, surgeon, were quickly in attend- ance. He had never known his father have a fit, but his heart was always weak. He did not think his father was more unwell than usual that morning, and he made no complaint as to his heart. He believed deceased had taken light refreshments on the journey, but had had nothing at Gloucester. He had been under the care of Dr. A. Nankwell at Bournemouth, and previously to that he had been under the care:of Dr. Burnett, of London, He had scarlatina when a boy, and .signs of dropsy and Bright's disease had developed themselves. Mr T. Edis, surgeou, fof Gloucester, deposed that on that afternoon, at four o'clock, he was called to the deceased at Mr Hatton's offices, George-street. He found the deceased lying down on the floor, evidently in a moribund state. There was pulsation at the wrist, but this ceased in less than a minute, and he died immediately. He had no doubt that he died from failure of the heart's action supervening on Bright's disease. The Coroner said he was there at the time. and agreed with Mr J'ldis as to the cause of death. The jury returned a verdict of "Death from natural causes." BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH. Mr William Charles Luard wa:5 the son of Mr Luard, the general manager of the London and County Bank, London. He was articled to a solicitor, and after being enrolled he for some time practised as such at Gray's-inn, London. Mr E. Priest Richards, who was for many years solicitor to the late Lord Bute, and also solicitor to the estate during the present Lord Bute's minority, was Mr Luard's uncle, and on feeling the duties involved, owinir to the expansion of the dock property, becoming too great, he invited his nephew to come to Cardiff and assist him as Jegal adviser to the estate. Mr Luard came to Cardiff in 1354, and acted m concert with his uncle for several years. Mr Richards was at the same time treasurer for the county of Glamorgan, and aft4r some years he resigned the position of solicitor to Lord Bute. Mr L. V. Shirley then came to Cardiff as a partner with Mr Luard, and the firm of Luard and Shirley carried on for many years the duties of solicitors to Lord Bute. Mr Richards at a subsequent period —in the year 1865—resigned the position of county treasurer. There were two candidates for the appointment, Mr W. C. Luard and Mr R. W. Williams, of Cardiff, batween whom it was said the appointment would fab. Considerable excite- ment was felt in the election, which took place at w. n Swansea. There were partisans in favour of either candidate, among the county magistrates, and feeling on the question ran very high. In Mr Luard's address lie claimed to be the nephew of Mr E. P. Richards, but this was denied by some of his opponents in the newspapers, who said that he was only a half-nephew. Mr Luard's appointment was oniy secured bv one vote, but since that time he has gained the respect, and esteem of all who opposed him, and Ins uncle, Mr E. P, Richards, never soared the confidence of tho county magistrates more than he did and at the meeting oi the magistrates to-day there is little doubt but t hat there will be a genera! feeling of regret at his death. He was steward of Lord Bute's Manor, and held courts leefc in Lord Bute's name and was besides solicitor for several of the leading county families. On the death of Mr Dunnmg be was appointed, by the present Bishop of Liandaff, .egistrar of the diocese and chaper clerk. Re "Ilitly ire,;Ii arrangements were made as regards Lho lfgal advisers of Lord Bute; Mr Sliirlcv ecame Lord Bute's local solicitor and Mr Luard v#fc: red. in his public capacity Mr Luard often seemed !r1, distant, and reserve' but in private life he was a man of kind and courteous m::11110r: lie. •■vss a member .f t.iio Athenaeum, the Orient," and several other clubs in London, as well as the Cardiff and County Cinbat Cardiff.

ILLNESS OF MR GLADSTONE. The Premier's Journey to Hawarden. After attend.ng Saturday's Cabinet Council Mr Gladstone drove to Euston Station, watii he took the 2.45 train for Chester and Idav/ardtn. A special saloon carriage was pro- viCtu for tin* right bon. gentleman's accommo- dation, and was well heated before ho entered it. As vtja traiii 'eft the station, at nnmhpr of persons wao had assembled en the pisiform give a hearty etieer, in response ;'1 whic.), the Premier came to tivi window and took off his hat. It was noticed that lie looked paie and careworn. Immediately the train was clear of the station, Mr Gladstone laid down,and succeeded in ohtain- ing a refreshing sleep on the journey between Willes^en and HllLT. At the latter station a crawu Collected opposite the saloon carriage, and cher,rod the Prime Minister, who had now drawn up the blinds. Chester was readied shortly after seven o'clock. Many persons who had heard of Mr Gladstone's illness from the morning papers were on the platform to enquire personally as to his health. An answer was given to the cffect that the Premier was better. Mr Herbert Gladstone joined the train at this point, and an animated conversation soon ensued between his father and himself until Branch ion Hall station was reached. This stage of the journey was accomplished in a special train. On arriving at the station, Mr Gladstone walked with firmness to his carriage in waiting, and drove direct to Hawarden Castle. Snow laid on the ground to the depth of half-an-inch, but the weather was much less keen than on New Year's Day, when the Premier travelled to town. On inquiry at the castle on Saturday evening, the Press Association's special correspondent was informed that Mr Gladstone had withstood the fatigue of the journey exceedingly well, and was in good health. Visitors arrived at the castle in the evening, and will take part in a concert te- day. INTERVIEW WITH MRS GLADSTONE. I Telegraphing on Sunday night, the Press Association says Mr Gladstone still remains indisposed, although his illness is not so serious as to occasion any alarm. The special representative of the Press Association had an interview this afternoon with Mrs Gladstone, who stated that Mr Gladstone was a little better. Mrs Gladstone remarked, in the course of conversation, that it seemed to her that the public and the press of this country had an idea that the family of the Premier were desirous of keeping back from the knowledge of all the true state of Mr Gladstone's health. This, Mrs Gladstone said. was far.froin her purpose and feeling, her desire being that the truth should he communicated to all those who were so kind as to make inquiries. She desired it to be made known that Mr Gladstone's illness was not of any serious nature. For some days prior to summoning the Cabinet Council for Friday last, the Premier had been working particularly hard, having a large amount of business to transact, and numerous papers to peruse. This led to some worry, and occasioned loss of sleep for several hours during the night, and restlessness. The Premier seemed to be more than usually ^wakeful on the night before leaving for London, ffid accordingly determined to see Sir Andrew Clark, who has complete know- ledge of his constitution. After his journey to London on Thursday and subsequent transaction of pressing official business, he did not feel well and passed a sleepless night. Sir Andrew Clark visited him for the second time on Fri- day morning, and ordered as much quiet and rest as he could possibly take. On Friday night, although he had attended a long sitting of the Cabinet, and had transacted numerous other business matters, he slept better,and when next Sir Andrew called upon him he was able to report an improvement. Sir Andrew desired that Mr Gladstone should at once obtain three weeks' rest from all but most pressingwork, and a change of air may possiblyalso be ordered. Mrs Gladstone stated that the Premier passed a better night on Saturday than he has experienced since the recurrence of these sleep- less attacks. His appetite is good, and he felt comparatively well to-day, but he is suffering from an attack of lumbago, which prevents him from taking his accustomed walks. Mrs Gladstone states that she herself can see a marked improvement in the Premier's condition. Mr Gladstone, however, looked very pale and careworn this morning as he walked leaning on Mrs Gladstone's arm from the castle to the parish church, a distance of about half a mile. He seemed feeble in bis gait but this was accounted for by an'attack of lumbago. This feebleness was particularly noted by the villagers, who frequently see Mr Gladstone in his usual good health walk- ing with firm step about the village and grounds of Hawarden. MR GLADSTONE AT CHURCH. I On arri vitig at the church,M.r Gladstone took his customary seat beside the choir, but did not read the lessons as heretofore. It was observable that the right hon. gentleman retained his seat during the greater portion of the service. It has also been his practice at the commencement of the sermon to move from his own seat to one immediately under the pulpit, so that he may be better able to hear the words of the preacher. He did not do so to-day, and many of his admirers went away from the church in the full impression he was not at all strong. He partook of the Sacrament, and then walked back to the castle again, leaning on Mrs Gladstone's arm. After luncheon he took a stroll in the garden, but although the day was beautifully fine, he remained out only a short time. For several years past Mr Gladstone has not missed attending evening service at church. To-day, however, he did not do so, but remained at the castle, while Mrs Gladstone and the other mem- bers of his family proceeded to church. Mr Gladstone's vacant place was observed, and many inquiries were made as to the reason of his non- attendance.

The Penistone Railway Accident. OPENING OF THE OFFICIAL INQUIRY. Major Marandin, the Government inspector, arrived at Penistone on Saturday for the purpose of holding an official inquiry into the recent accident on the Manchester, Sheffield and Lin- colnshire Railway, Major Marindin was received by Mr R. G. Lnderdown, general manager of the company; Mr Sacre, chief engineer; Mr W. Bradley, general superintendent and Mr H. A. P. Hamil- ton, district superintendent. Immediately on arriving at Peniston", Major Marindin went to the scene of the accident, and inspected ti -ic line, the wrecked carriages, and the broken ax: lIe subsequently returned to the Penistone Station, and commenced his inquiry in one of the waiting rooms. ° After two signalmen had given evidence, in the course of which they stated that the signals were right for the coal train and the excur?;• ul train to pass each other, John Oouldwell, the driver o; tie excursion, was called. He staved that ho ha.-> bc-eii in the I service of the Manchester, Sheffb'd, and Lin- j colnshire Railway Company for 20 anI) had been a driver for 13. His engine was fitted with Smith's vacuum brake, and the carriage-; were each fitted with the vacuum brake, worked from the engine. He tested his brake before starting, and also at Wadsley Bridge and Deep- car, two stations on the road to Penistone. It worked all right after leaving Deepcar. All the signals were of? between there and Penistone, and, said the witness, we passed the Barnsley Junction Box at a speed ot 25 or 30 miles an hour with the steam on. I first caught sight of the mineral train after passing the box. Itwould then be about 100 yards off, and I perceived nothing the matter. When we got; within 20 yards of it I saw a waggon of the mineral train run off into the six foot way. I should think it would be about the fifth waggon. The driver of the mineral train appeared to be looking back over the engine on the six-foot side. I could not say whether he had the steam on or off. As soon as I saw the waggon I made prepara- tions to stop the train by shutting off steam and applying the vacuum brake. My fireman applied the tender brake. Both brakes wera hardly on before we struck the other engine, and we had reduced the speed a good deal-I think by half the speed the train had been travelling at, I did not notice what speed the other train was running at. I saw the waggon work from the six-foot into the four-foot of the down line, and when I struck it the waggon knocked the smoke-box door of the engine in. I bent down and did not see any- thing more until the train stopped. I bent down because I thought something might come over the top of the engine. There were about six vehicles off the rails after the collision. The smoke-box, tho right side rod, and several minor parts of the engine were damasred, but not very greatly. The line was in very good order. My engine did not leave the rails, nor the tender. I do not know which was the first carriage to go off the rails. Jacob Hanley, one of the guards of the excur- sion train, s'ticl :—Everything went right until we were approaching Penistone. When passing Barnsley junction box, was standing looking out of the window. When I got opposite the distance sicnri for Huddersfield junction, I saw the driver of our train make a rush to his reverse ]ever, and I thought we had run over a shunter, or that something was wrong. I immediately applied my brake, and I felt the vacuum brake come on sharply. I was knocked down in the van almost at once. Before this, however, I had seen the engine of the goods train pass—at about the time I was applying my brake, but I couid not say whether the vacuum brake was on before t;ie engine was passing or not. It was so very quickly all happened. Our train on passing Barnsley junction was running between twenty-live and thirty miles an hour-certainly not more than thirty. The speed was a good deal reduced before our train struck the waggon. It pulled up very suddenly. I was knocked down, and my left shoulder was hurt. I came up to Penistone as soon as I could get out to tell the signalman to stop the road. I warned the signalman at Hud- dersfieid Junction box en the way to block the line. I took a train clown as far as we could, and when I got there found the wounded passengers had been got out and placed on the bank. The Liverpool portion of the train was very full, the Soutliport part was,not. The worst damaged car- riages were the sixth and seventh from the engine -th Liverpool portion of the train. William Spinks and Joseph Plowright, two other guards, having given evidence, John Schofield, the driver of the coal train, was examined. He said I came on duty at 4 o'clock in the morning at the shed at Gorton, and took on the empty train from Ardwick. It consisted of twenty-six or twenty-seven waggons. I left Ardwick at five o'clock, and had to take the waggons to Shireoaks. We stopped at Penistone goods station, where we picked up one goods wag- gon and left again at 8.21 or 8.22. The signals wers all right up to Penistone, and we ran at the rat af 10 or 12 miles per hour. On approaching Barnsley Junction, having shut off steam at Peni- stone, my mate first called my attention to a waggon in the six-foot way, and I immediately put on the vacuum brake. It was the fifth waggon from the engine so far as I could tell. There was a vacuum brake on the engine and a hand-brake on the tender. The latter was applied by my mate. We were close on the passenger train when I put on the vacuum brake. I did not see the passenger train until I had my hand on the brake. When I first saw the engine of the passenger train it was close on to us. The driver of the passenger train applied his brake at the same time that I applied mine. My mate opened the whistle as soon as we saw the waggon wrong. That was just at the moment the passenger engine was passing. My engine stopped just beyond the crossing, and several waggons became detached and were broken up. When the collision took place my train was running not more than ten or twelve miles per hour. As soon as I felt my engine was all right I went to help the injured. First, I examined the waggon which gave way, but I could not n find out the reason. I felt no jerk on the engine. There was nothing to complain of in the state of the line there was no roughness between Penistone and Barnsley Junction. I had not put my brake on at all after leaving Penistone until reaching the scene of the accident, when I applied the vacuum gently, lest the waggons should mount on the top of each other. Edmund Peacock, fireman of the coal trilin: said: I have been in the service of the company since 1876. I saw the waggon jumping near Barnsley Junction. It was the fifth waggon, as near as I can say. I called the driver's attention to it, then opened the whistle, and afterwards ran to the tender brake, which I applied. The pas- senger train was perhaps fifty or sixty yards off when I first saw the waggon jumping. 1 felt the shock of the collision very greatly. After doing what I could to assist the injured, I went along the line for about 100 yards from the broken waggon, but failed to discover any roughness or anything wrong with the line. The witness, in reply to the inspector, when his evidence was being read over, said his tender brake was not on until after the collision took place. Robert Higgs, who has been a goods guard for nine and a-half years, and was guaid of the Ard- wick coal train, said There were nine waggons empty next the brake for Shireoadcsj two for Waleswood Colliery, and five belonging to the Kiveton Park Colliery. There were also sixteen loaded goods waggons and a brake coming on to Penistone. After dropping and taking up wag- gons at various stations, we ran from Woodhead to Penistone. The first I saw was some fire flying from one of the waggons when I was about sixty yards, apparently, from the scene of the accident. It was about the fourth waggon from the engine. I saw it oscillating very much, and fall into the six foot, tne waggon behind it following. When I noticed this, the engines would be about pas- sing one another. I now saw the passenger engine strike the waggon, rearing it on eud towards the coal train. The waggon then fell into the pas- senger train. Having applied my brake, I got down behind to give assistance. I applied my brake as soon as ever I could. The worst damaged carriages were those about the middle of the train. After the accident I saw that seven waggons had been knocked off the road. After other evidence had been adduced. Mr Joseph Sharp, locomotive superintendent of Sheffield, described the position of the passenger train and the waggons after the accident. <-he wheels of the waggons that caused tie accident was, he said, marked "Harrison and Uffim," but he could find no name on the axle Itself. The wheel was marked inside the boss ilarnson and Camin 1,167." None of the carnages of the pas- senger train were telescoped, The damage was done by the goods train dragging alongside of it. In his opinion the broken spring came off No. 218 waggon. He had seen the broken axle. It bad had a flaw in it a quarter of a inch deep. In opinion the axlo broke first, for he did not think the spring would have fallen out unless the axle had broken. I The inquiry was adjourned until this week, and will be continued at Manchester.

I The French in China. ANOTHER GREAT BATTLE. Six Thousand Chinese Defeated, b Resignation of the French War Minister. [CENTHAL NEWS TELEGRAM.] PARIS, Sunday Afternoon.—An omcial tele- gram has just been received at the Ministry of Marine from General Negrier, to the effect that that general had succeeded in defeating 6,000 Chinese, who were encamped a day's journey from Clm. No further details are added. PARIS, Sunday, 4 p.m.—The resignation of General Campenon, Minister of War, is now un fait accompli. For some long time past this event has been talked of and hinted at, but up to the present nothing definite had occurred. Now, however, it is well known that the general has resigned his portiolio, and I am in a position to state that not only has M. Ferry accepted his late minister's resignation, but has offered the vacant post to General Lewal, who has accepted the position. I am also credibly informed that the new minister judges it to be of the highest importance that a rapid and complete occupation of Tonquin should be at once effected as far as the Chinese frontier. I am also assured that the new reinforcements which it is intended to send out will not exceed 6,000 men, if as much. [EELITERO TELEGRAM. I PARIS, Sunday.—Several of to-cl.Y's papers state that the management of the operations in Tonquin, which iii) t) tiic present iias been in the hands of the Ministry of Marine, will noW be transferred to the Ministry of War. The Temps says that General Lewal is of opinion that the reinforcements already despatched to Tonqum will be sufficient to ensure the conquest of that country. A rumour is current that M. Cavaig- nac, deputy for Sarthe, will replace M. Casimir Perier as Under-Secretary for War.
AFFAIRS IN ZULULAND. Proposed Extension of British Rule. (" TIMFS TELEGRAM.J DURBAN, Sunday.—A petition to Lord Derby is being signed here urging the extension of British rule over all Zululand as the only means of pre- venting further comphcations and safe-guarding the Imperial interests in South-East Africa, and so securing the welfare of the native population.
ARABI PASHA. To-day's ill m'ning Post says:—"A curious rumour from Vienna reports that the case of Arabi Pasha is igain under the consideration of her Majesty's Government, with a view to engage the late leader of the Egyptian insurrection to aid the efforts of her Majesty's Government in the valley of the Nile. Arabi is stated to have re- cently expressed to some visitors his profound sympathy with Mr Gladstone in his Egyptian difficulties."
THE NEXT GENERAL ELECTION. To-day's Times, discussing the probable course of the next general election, says: Liberal members will be, to a great extent, released from the influence which led them some months ago to vote against their convictions. Some re- cognise their political doom in the new order of things others have to deal with new constituen- cies and unknown currents of opinion; many will be reluctant to face a general election with the discreditof having supported through thick andtilit, a disastrous and ignoble policy; and many more will not be sorry to cast upon political opponents the perplexing task of devising a remedy for difficulties which have accumulated in an overwhelming mass. The enormous cost, for instance, of the Nile expedition, will be bard to justify even after a brilliant success, and even if the only result is to bring Gen. Gordon back from Khartoum without making any perrnanent^ar- rangements for the government of the Upper -<i!e and the security of Egypt on 8^e* would be satisfactory to Liberal candidates, look- ing to the impending contest in the autumn to charge the increase of taxation, which will be needed to pay off the arrears of Lord Wolseley's magnificent bill upon the Tories. We are in. clined, therefore, to believe that Mr Gladstone and his colleagues may be mistaken if they imagine that further evasions and consequent disasters in their dealings with Egypt will be condoned, when Parliament re-assembles, by a majority of the House of Commons. It would be more dignified and more profitable for them to anticipate the result by resignation, which would be justified according to constitutional Practice, if as we doubt not is the case, there »re divisions in the Cabinet, and which is, at all events, de- manded in the interest of the country, and if Ministers are unable to make up their minds, and can do nothing but drift after the winner of those who, as Mr Gladstone must recollect, involved England in the Crimean War more than tliirty years Igo.
