The injury from which Mr Justice Grantham has now happily recovered, reminds us that there seems to be a strange fatality which makes judges the object of missiles, both in and out of Court. Sir William Grantham's colleagues, Mr Justice Darling, was struck by a piece of brick while electioneering at Deptford, and the occasion on which Vice-Chancellor Malina Wall niadti tins target fur an egg by an angry Suitor, is best remembered on account of the self-possession which was manifested by the learned judge. "That," he said (referring to his colleague in the Chancery Division), 41 must have been intended for my brother Bacon." Sir William Grantham, so far as the records go, is alone among the judges in having been struck by a bottle thrown from a train, but there is a story which might be placed in the same category in Benson's life of his father, the Archbishop. A comfortable-looking Yorkshire clergyman having purchased a basket of strawberries, and consumed the contents with great en- joyment, threw the basket out of the window of the railway carriage. This proceeding evoked from a fellow passenger in a far corner, the remark, A dangerous thing to do is that, sir." The clergyman, apparently reflected for a moment, and then, looking round with a genial smile, said, 4' We live, sir, in a world of risks."
