DEATH OF MISS JENNER. ENTHUSIAST WHO SAVED 14 WOMEN FROM THIS SCAFFOLD. Miss Jenner, daughter of the late Mr. R. F. Jenner, of Wenvoe Castle, died on Sunday last at the age of 69, after a career of benevolence mingled with eccentricity. She was proud to recall that by interesting herself in the cases of women sentenced to death no fewer than four- teen had been reprieved. Beginning many years ago to care for young women who had been arrested for murdering their babes, she was at least once invited to sit beside the judge during a trial of this kind. She once said in court, My Lord, I appear to watch the pro- ceedings on behalf of my fallen sister." Poor lady, she had her strange delusions, and was often the subject of public merriment, as when she insisted on aiding on the box of a cab behind the Lord \byor of London when he visited Swansca several years ago. But there was a fine side to her character which won respect. She was a litigant on her own behalf, and on one occasion took up three hours with her conduct of the case in person. In Swansea she was a familiar figure, who will be missed.
