I THE INDISPOSITION OF MR GLADSTONE. How the Premier Spent Yesterday., Our Hawarden correspondent telegraphs aD" Monday evening —Mr Gladstone,since his return home, seems to -have improved in health con- siderably, a circumstance which is probably due chiefly to the fact that he has been able- i to sleep more, comfortably at night. The slight attack of lumbago causes him little inconvenience, and has certainly not impaired his general health and spirits. This morning Mi: Gladstone breakfastod in bed, and remained irk his bedroom until somewhat late, a drizzling raia offering no inducement to out-door exercise- J In the afternoon, however, however, the weather- < cleared up, and the right hon. gentlemen- in company witn Mrs Gladstone, took an enjoy- able drive. On their return to Hawarden village Mr Gladstone dismissed the carriage and walked f through the park to the castle, a distance of s about halfi a mile. Owing to the lumbago, Mr Gladstone was obliged to lean upon a stick and t incline his. body slightly to the right, and this gave an appearance of feebleness altogether de- ceptive. f The Press .Association special representative at • Hawarden s:\ys :—It is expected that Sir Andrew Clark will visit the Premier towards the end of ( the present week. Sir Andrew is in a position to. leave London at any moment should his ser- | vices be required, but the improvement. 1 noticeable in Mr Gladstone's condition. f- on Monday morning continued throughout the f day, and in the afternoon it was evident that he had considerably gained ground. The right hon.. gentleman, did not attend early morning service as usual, nor will lie do so until the lumbago, which at present occasions him some pain, disap- pears, as particular instructions have been given that quietude is necessary for the return of his ordinary health. Mr Gladstone has decided not to attend the rent audit dinner at Hawarden on Wednesday next. Many of the tenants paying rent to the agents at the Glynne Arm, expressed disappointment at this decision and enquired most kindly after their landlord's health, two of the tenants also making personal enquiries at the Castle. The weather on Monday morning being damp, Mr Gladstone did not take his cus- tomary walk in the grounds before luncheon. He rose at 10.30, after having passed a rest- less night, and remained-with Mrs Gladstone and the guests assembled at the Castle for the even- ing's concert. At 3.30, the rain having ceased. the Premier and Mrs Gladstone went out for a drive in the grounds. They both.alighted oppo- site the Glynne Arms, where a number of people had collected for the purpose of paying their rent?. Many of these' alked forward to meet Mr Gladstone, and made inquiries as to his health. They all noticed the Premier was looking very pale, and that he walked with aperceptible stoop, the effect of the r attack of lumbago. Entering the park gates, Mr and Mrs Gladstone took a quiet stroll along the private paths leading to the waterfall. Afcer a rest in the neighbourhood of the waterfall. they continued their walk on to the Castle. Atseven o'clock in the evening the Press Association repre- sentative was informed that Mr Gladstone was j making satisfactory progress, that ha had much improved throughout the day, and th.-it with care W and continued rest it was expected be will have regained his usual health in the course of the next week or two. The Premierdined with the family party. _—— i
