THE PUBLIC GARDENS' ASSOCIATION. I The Metropolitan Public Gardens Associa- tion, of which Lord Meath is president, has set an example which might very well be adopted by the great provincial town3. The idea is that the appearance of the streets in the poorer parts of London could be improved greatly by the cultivation of flowers in pots or boxes outside the win- dows. There is nothing very brilliantly new in that theory, but still we are con- fronted by the fact that the poor do not as a rule beautify their dwellings in this way, and in the majority of cases have no am- bition to do so. The Association has pro- claimed its willingness to co-operate with flower show Societies, by offering prizes for such displays, and there is every reason to hope that the cultivation of flowers in such circumstances will be increasingly adopted as a result of the society's public-spirited action. If that is so, the improvement will not be confined to the appearance of the streets, seeing that the cultivation of flowers contributes to the culture and civilisation of the grower. I "MURDER WILL OUT." The Coventry tragedy and one or two other crimes which have been committed lately serve as illustrations of the truth of the dictum that" murder, though it have no tongue, will speak with most miraculous organ." A murder always places the police upon their mettle, and it is evident from the boldness with which such crimes are committed that the murderer generally under-estimates the resources which the detectives have at their commaud. A man may think that if nobody sees him commit a murder, and he can get clear away, he is in that event safe from discovery, but he generally finds, sooner or later, that he has made a mistake. The police have sources of information which he little dreams of, and while he is congratulating himself upon his escape they may be keeping him under observation while they are completing the chain of evidence which is intended to bring him ultimately to the gallows. In the Coventry case, it would, of course, be pre- mature to assume the guilt of anybody in particular, but it is evident that somebody or other cherished a vain hope that by placing the bodies in a trunk he would prevent the discovery of the crime.
