Tm: dead body of a fashionably-dressed man was on Sunday found in the Warren, Folkestone, with a revolver by his side. Deceased, in whose body there was a bullet wound, is believed to be a visitor, and is about 35 years of age, of medium height, full-faced, with a fair moustache. THE London County Council have decided upon art important public' improvement in St. Luke's, at a "ost of E77,750, providing that the local vestry con- tributes £ 12,500. This is the widening of a narrow ;horoughfare known as Central-street a continuation of the improved Golden-lane, and running parallel with Goswell-road. The improvement would con- siderably relieve the traffic of Goswell-road, and will be discussed ai a meeting of the Vestry very shortly. The General Purposes Committee recommends the outlay if the L.C.C. will lend the 912,500 for 60 years. FOUR torpedo-boat destroyers for the Russian Black Sea Fleet will shortly be launched at the Franco-Belgian shipbuilding yard at Nicolaieff. Two Viennese citizens have made a wager of £ 20C that they will roll a big barrel, containing 150 gallons and weighing 4cwt., from Vienna to Paris in 50 days. A REGIMENT of Highlanders is being organised in Hamilton, Ontario. One company will consist of men all over 6ft. in height. As a means of showing how far the world is from being over-populated, economists assert that the en- tire population of the United States could live com- fortably in the single state of Texas. A COMMISSION of Russia and Roumanian delegates for the purpose of arranging regulations respecting fishing for that, part of the river Dantibe lying within Russian and Roumanian territory, is being held at Odessa. SALT has practically ceased to be imported into Afghanistan from India. Only 62 ca-el loads left Peshawar last year, against 2885 during the previous year. GENERAL DE GALLIFFET, French ex-Minister of War, declares that he has given up public life, never to re-enter it. IT is estimated that the Kaffirs in the diamond mines at Kimberley, South Africa, steal E250,000 worth of diamonds a year. IT takes something like -35 a year to keep a rail- way carriage in proper working order in the British Isles. MR. CHARLES BIRCH CRISP, stockbroker, Angel- court, London, has been selected to contest Oldham along with Mr. Winston Spencer Churchill in the Conservative interest at the General Election. MR. S. POULTER has been appointed mineral mana- ger of the Great Eastern Railway. THERE is, perhaps, no man in the Transvaal, with the exception of the President, whose influence has been greater in recent years than that of Mr. Smuts, Dr. Leyds's successor as State Secretary. Mr. brants, who has barely emerged from the twenties, is a young man whose appearance is at least as unimpressive as his name. Following in the steps of Mr. Schreiner, he was educated at the Cape University and at Cam- bridge, and returned to South Africa a qualified English barrister. His effort to establish a practice in the Cape Courts was almost pathetically futile, and after a period of journalism he migrated to tha Transvaal, where he quickly rose to high office. Mr. Smuts is now one of the most rabid of all Boers, and his hatred of the British as a people is only eclipsed by his detestation of Mr. Cecil Rhodes, his first bene- factor.
