SEIZING A PIANO. 'L<OFS OUTRAGEOUS cO^Otrct.' ^fllhomas Boals, a bailiff, of Prince8-roaer, JStorth Kensington, was summoned at West London for assaulting Mrs. Jane Eales, of 5, St. Alban's terrace, Hammersmith, and damaging a door and a glass case. During the absence of Mr. Eales, the defendant, it was alleged, called on behalf of a pianoforte cleular of Fulham, and demanded C5, which was owing tinder a hire-purchase agreement in respect of a piano. She was about to unlock the sitting- room door to let him look at the instrument when he rushed after her, caught her round the waist, and threw her against the door wfth such force that the lock gave way, and they tumbled into the room. He then threw her on the sofa, and, while she lay there in a half- fainting condition, he, with the help of a van man, carried away the piano, smachipg a glass case while doing so. Her father-in-law was fetched, and offered to pay the money, but the defendant refused to accept it. The defendant said that his instructions were to obtain the Y.5, or as much of it as possible, or, in default, to seize the piano. He denied that he ever assaulted Mrs. Eales. The magis- trate observed that he was satisfied that tho person who employed the defendant in ihis pai- ticular matter did not authorise the bar- barous and illegal manner in which he carried out his business. The defendant's conduct was perfectly outrageous. On the summons for damage there would be a fine of 20s., with 5s. costs, or fourteen days' hard labour, and for the Assault a fine of 40s., with 25s. costs, or one month's hard labour.
SHIPPING DISASTERS. COLLISION OFF LUNDY ISLAND. The schooner C. S. Atkinson, of Chester, and the steamer Giueeppena Lardi, of Messina' col- lided off Lundy Island during Thursday night. 711e former sank in three minutes, and three of ■Jier crew were drowned. Their names are Ed- ward Warren, of London, Henry McDermott, of Kiildare, and Albert Arnold, of Guernsey. The mate saved his life by climbing on to the •ebeamer, and the captain was picked up. The schooner Laura, of Whitstable, eollidled with ttfie Dover Admiralty works during Thurs- day night, and sustained considerable damage, fshe is now anchored in the Admiralty harbour. The disabled Danish steamer Kentucky, bound from Copenhagen to New York, has been towed into Queens town Harbour with the loss of her propeller by the Glasgow steamer Alcides, which tell in with her on the 17th inst., and towed her 900 mil,er,. The Danish mail steamer Laura has landed at Leith from Iceland a number of shipwrecked fishermen. On February 14, the Hull steam trawler bouthcote stranded on the Twisker Bocks, Iceland, during a heavy south-east gale and snowstorm, afterwards becoming embenued in the sand. All hope of saving her was aban- doned. and the ci.ew of thirteen were with difficulty got .ii-hore. The men were tliirteen days on the ice before assistance reached them. On February 18th the steam trawler Wurtem- berg, of Bremen, went ashore during bad weather, and the captain and five of the crew of the Hull trawler Gloria, who went to render assic,tance, found themselves unable to return to their vessel, which left for home. They have now been landed at Leith.
MADMAN'S ESCAPE. FOLLOWED BY THREE CRIMES. Considerable uneasinecs was caused locally by the escape of a dangerous lunatic from Bodmin Asylum, while out for exercise with other in- mates and four attendants. The county police were notified, and a search instituted/ but no result was forthcoming until after certain inci- oont", of a serious character had occurred, and ■caused very general alarm. Just as the light was fading, the engine- driver of a passenger train proceeding to °Plv- mouth from Bodmin-road noticed a heavy pole lying across the down metals. He did not stop his own train, but before reaching the next station passed a down express goods and <*ave the signal to the driver to proceed very cautiously. The latter dtid so, and was thus y it3 enabled to bring his train to a standstill before coming into contact with the obstruction. A lititle later in the evening a young Bodmin cyclist was proceeding from Liskead to his 3iome. When in the vicinity of the soot where the line had been obstructed he wa.-i suddenly attacked by a man who had been hiding in the hedge and thrown from h i- inachiir?. The man instantly drir,appeared into an adjacent -wood. Still later, a hayrick wns discovered in fiameis a short distance further on towards Liskeard. It was not long afterwards that the escaped lunatic was captured by the policfe of that town. He 16 a young man, twenty years of age, who at the recent Cornwall Assizes was sentenced to imprisonment for setting fire to a hayrick c near Bodmin. While in prison he was certi- fied insane and pase.ed, on to the County Asy- lum. He is called Caleb Joeiah Daniel, and is a native of Coombe Martin, near lifrac^ml«v
DEATH FOLLOWS EXPERIMENT SCHOOLGIRL VICTIM TO SCIENCE. Emma Rowe, a girl of fifteen, has died at .^Plymouth from the effects of an accident while making an experiment in the science class of the secondary school. She swallowed inadver- tently a quantity of a solution of caustic soda, of which she was trying to test the strength. An antidote was administered, and although .hor throat and mouth were badly injured and .she suflered intense pain, there was every hope of her recovery until the Wednesday, when she .h.id a relapse. Her sufferIngs were so great that chloroform -was administered. It was found that an in- ternal organ was perforated, and the girl was removed to a nursing home toAindergo an ope- ration. whien was the only chance of saving her 7-i °i)erati°n performed, but the g;rl dut not rally, and died on the Sundav. The experiment is one which is carried out in every technical school, and which has been .regarded hitherto as a perfectly safe one. At the inquest the jury returned a verdict of Death by misadventure," and added a rider recommending that the education authorities should exercise more supervision over experi- ments conducted by children.
NEW YORK MUTUAL. BRITISH MANAGER RESIGNS. \J.. An interesting sequel to the scandals in con- nection with the,, New York Mutual Life In- surance Company is the announcement of the resignation of Mr. U. L. Hftlde-man, the British manager. The step is ascribed to differences of opinion between himspif and the New York -office on matters which -|ie considers of vital importance to the interests' of the British policy-holders. The resignation was 'tendered on the 10th of 31 arch, and takes effect-sixty days from that •date.' T3ie London branch of the Mutual Com- pany was established 19 yearn ago by Mr. Hal- •daman. There are ~J,000 policy-holders of the ■company in Ithe United Kingdom, and the p.nrMial income of the British brarch is over £ 630,000, the amount insured being £ 15,000,000.
MR. BALFOUK AND BLACKMAILER. EXTRAORDINARY STORY FROM BERLIN. Consideawble interest attaches to the case tried before the. Second Criminal Court at Chemnitz last week, when Richard Arno Pas- sler, a compositor, was charged' with attempt- ing to blackmail Mr. Arthur Balfour. The prisoner, who was born at Pleissa, near Chemnitz, in Saxony, on November 4, 1886, is stated to have travelled a good deal, despite his youth. At the time of his arrest he was staying with his parents at, Pleissa. Herr Hub ner acted as counsel for the prisoner. The evidence brought forward by the prose- cuticn showed that on February 4, the prisoner sent a letter from the Limbaeh Post-office ad- dressed to Lord? Balfour, and demanding in the name of tlie "Black Hand for Europe and America" the sum of £5000. In the letter, which was written in German., the accused said: "You must fulfil the demand, for if VOll do not heed it,' or if you give. this letter to the police, you will have to bear the consequences." The last sentence was doubly underlined, "These," the letter continued!, "will be ter- rible. You cannot plunge yourself and ioii, family into misfortune, but must send the small sum requested.5' The letter concluded: I warn you against taking any rash step, other- wife-. Paasler further asked that the 20,000 marks should be sent, to him at his parents' home at Pleissa. It noteworthy that the prisoner ob- viously believed that one pound sterling was equivalent to four marks. Mr. Balfour handed the letter to the German Embassy in London, which immediately took steps for the discovery of the culprit, with the result that Passler was arrested on March 2, on a charge of attempting to extort 20,000 marks by threats.' An investigation showed that the prisoner had nothing whatever to do with the "Black Hand" organisation; at all events, a search failed! to reveal the existence of any in- criminating documents or papers. Cross-examined as to why- he had selected Mr. Balfour for an attempt at blackmail, the prisoner replied that he thought Mr. Balfour would do as well as anyone else. He was in need of money, and he hoped to get some by menaces, as he had heard such attempts often succeeded. The Court sentenced him to a month's im- prisonment, but, in view of the time which he had been in prison pending the investigation of the case, he was immediately released.
HOMEWARD BOUND. go.- PRINCE'S FAREWELL TO INDIA. The Duke and Duchess of Connaught and Princess Patricia breakfasted on Saturday morn- at Aden with the Prince and Princess of Wales on board H.M. cruiser Terrible. The Prince and Princess sailed in the afternoon without landing. The Prince has written to Lord Minto a letter, under date the 19th inst., in which he says that both the Princess and himself were generally sorry that the tour was ended, and they would never for- get the greetings of India and Burmah and the loving regard shown for Queen Victoria and the devotion manifested for their dear father. The Prince trusts that the visit, which involved such great labour, would be fraught with benefit to India, and, in conclusion, wishes Lord Minto God speed on the great work of securing immunity from famine, the progress of industries, and the advance of social conditions, and every success in I his arduous duties of Viceroy. Among the honours conferred by the Prince of Wales previously to his departure from India was that of Commander of the Victorian Order given to Sir Arthur Fanshawe.
BOOKMAKER'S DIVORCE CASE. BETS AND MORALS;. A suit for divorce brought by Mr. Robert Root, a bookmaker, on the ground of his wife's misconduct with his partner, Mr. Howard Charlesworth, has been concluded. The jury found that there had been misconduct, but that there had also been cruelty by Mr. Root towards his wife, and assessed damages at E250 against Mr. Charlesworth. Sir Gorell Barnes, who deferred judgment, said that had it not been for belting the eourts would never have heard of this ease at all, because the justification set up by Mrs. Root and the co-respondent was that they became associated through a betting business. It was not particularly edifying to have to listen to all the accounts of betting which had been given during the hearing of the suit, said Sir Gorell, although the result of the transactions seemed to have been a good thing for those engaged in them. Those who made the bets seemed to provide the money for these people—one formerly a coachman, and the other a coachman's daughter-to appear before the court in a lengthened trial. And, so far as he could see, the judge continued, these people had not a very high moral standard. Mr. Root practically set a trap to catch his wife and his partner. He arranged a dinner, put it off and then returned home and hid himself in a cup- board. That was not the conduct to expect from a man who had any regard for his own wife or self- respect or dignity. When the case was mentioned in court next day Mr. Gill, K.C., urged that the charges of crueltv showed that Mr. Root was unsuitable to have the custody of the children. The President: The only terms I can impose will be with regard to monetary allowance to the respondent. I am disposed to pronounce a decree nisi, and suspend its operation until the question of an allowance has been decided. Mr. Rawlinson, K.C.: The proper person to provide for the wife is the co-respondent. The litigation in which the petitioner has been involved by the misconduct of the respondent has brought him almost to financial ruin. His lordship said he would reserve what he had to say until after the application in Chambers with regard to the custody of the children.
DEATH OF A PRINCESS. The Duchess of Mecklenburg, llée Princess Alex- andrine of Prussia, died on Saturday night at the Schloss Marly, near Potsdam. The Princess was the only daughter of Prince Albert of Prussia, a brother of the Emperor William I., and was con- sequently a grand-aunt of the reigning Emperor. In 1S65 she married t*ie Duke William of Mecklen- burg-Schwerin, who died in 1879. The Buke was his first cousin, his mother, also a Princess Alex- andrine of Prussia, having been a sister of her father. Her only broth-v. Prince Albert of Prussia, is the well known Regent of Brunswick. She was in her sixty-fifth

FATAL FALL FROM A BALCONY. At the City Coroner's Court an inquest was Iheld on the body of Robert Fitzgerald, a labourer, in the employ of Messrs. Carter and Co., office fitters, of Lime-street, who died in St. Bartholomew's Hospital from injuries sus- tained by a fa.11 from a. balcony on the premises of Messrs. Carl Hentschel and Co., 182-3-4, Fleet-street. Mr. James Seva Mountford, busi- ness manager to Messrs. Carl Hentsohel, could not eay whether the men were resting against the balcony or not. He had no reason to suppose that the balcony was unsafe. A furniture case was being pulled) up by ropes, and had been got I about two-thirdtj of the way up when the acci- dent occurred. He iiad given instructions the day before about the case, and suggested to the foreman that a derrick should be used. The foreman replied, "Oh, that is not at all neces- sary there is no weight in it." Mr. F. C. Bird, a partner in the firm of J. Carter and Co., said the men would have been laughed at had they put up a derrick for so email a weight. The foreman was a good and trusty man. The jury returned a verdict of "Accidental death," and added that in their opinion a der- rick -in this particular case should have been used.
ONE OF THE TIIIN RED LINE. John Macdonald, an old soldier, one of the Thin r Hed Line," has died at Inverness, at the age of 76. Macdonald, who went through the Crimea with the 93rd Highlanders, was afterwards transferred to the 78th Highlanders, and served in the Indian ifutiny.
SAVED BY THE SERVANTS. Oxon Hall, near Shrewsbury, the residence of Mrs. C. J. Morris, widow of a former High Sheriff of Shropshire, has had a narrow escape from destruction by fire. Early in the morning servants found the stables, which adjoin the Hall, on fire. The butler and footman saved 14 valuable hunters, and a housemaid, cycling to Shrewsbury, summoned the fire brigade, which arrived just in time to pre- vent the flames spreading to the Hall.
GUILDFORDS STEEPLE. Poor Guildford, proud people; Six churches, no steeple." So ran an old rhyme about the capital of Surrey, but this is no longer true, for the Bishop of Win- chester has dedicated a steeple at St. Saviour's Church, which rises to a height of 120ft. An inhabitant over 70 years of age, anxious to celebrate the town's achievement, climbed the scaffolding ladders, and after an arduous journey touched the pinnacle of the new spire.
A PROFITABLE WORKHOUSE. During the past six months the Risbridge Board of Guardians have accommodated 260paupers from unions in the Metropolis and Birmingham. A careful analysis of the cost leads them to believe that in the next six months they will make a profit equivalent to a rate of not less than 3d. in the E.
MILLIONAIRE CRICKETER'S BEQUESTS. Mr. Vyell Edward Walker, of Arnos-grove, Southgate, N., the famous amateur cricketer and member of the brewing firm of Taylor, Walker, and Co., left £ 1,598,177.

LADIES' LETTER. BY OUR SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT. A Celebrated Actress. Miss Ellen Terry, who is still delighting London playgoers, will shortly celebrate her theatrical jubilee. She will then be pIa) jng the same Shakespearian comedy, "A Win- ter's Tale," in which she made her first ap- pearance on the stage on April 28th, 1856, under the management of Charles Kean. Many of her admirers must feel inclined to doubt whether fifty years can have passed since Miss Terry first appeared upon the sTage, but she has the gift of perennial youth, as few women have, and with some tempor- ary retirements she has been prominently before the public all the time. It is in her kng connection with the late Sir Henry Irvng that she is t known to the playing \\orld, both in this country and in America, where she has been on many tours, and her many friends are thinking of making her some suitable presentation on the occasion of ner jubilee. Girls and Government Clerkships. Until quite recently there were few posts open to women and girls more eagerly sought after than clerkships in the Government ser- vice. Now, it seems, the competition for such appointments is not so keen, and there are not half as many candidates for vacancies as was the case three or four years ago. This must either be due to the fact that each year opens a larger number of professions to women, or else those who were successful in securing Government positions were so few, compared with' the many candidates, that the disappointment has discouraged others from trying. In September last there were 132 candidates for 35 vacant clerkships in the Post Office, but three or four years ago there would have been between four and five hundred competitors for these appoint- ments. Housework as Healthy Exercise. One of the magazines has been inviting leading medical men to say what in their opinion is the secret of health, strength, and beauty. A London physician, who replies, says that a good crculation is the first essen- tial of good health, and he advises all women as far as possible to do their own housework, as the best means of preserving a naturally healthy condition. It is far better, he sug- gests, than gymnastics, or athletic exercises, and it is certainly more useful. At any rate it is open to every woman to try it, espe- cially now that spring cleaning" is in the air. No one need be in want of healthful exercise, when that annual upheaval in do- mestic affairs begins, but, all the same, it is well not to start on the spring cleaning pro- cess too early. Comfortable warmth in the house is certainly ooe, if not the first secret of good hea-th, and the benefit we may derive from polishing furniture may be little com- pensation for what we may suffer from icy cold rooms, and chily blasts from open doors and windows. Upon Eating Snails. There is an old belief that snails possess great medicinal properties, particularly of benefit to those suffering from shortness of breath, but all the same Canon Horsley's pronouncement as to their deliciousness is hardly likely to induce many housewives to try them as a new breakfast dish. Few could overcome their repugnance to such an idea, and the snails and frogs which ligure in French cooking are very different to those which are familiar objects in the suburban back garden, and which apparently Canon Horsley recommends. In France they are cultivated as a delicacy, a custom, by the way, which was formally viewed with much opprobrium in this county, happily we are now much better educated in the ways of our neighbours, and one has only to visit the fashionable shopping districts in Lon- don to see evidence of the "entente cordiale" now existing between the two nations. In many shops it is common to see show goods ticketed in the French language, and such terms used as tres jolie," la deniere," "bOll gout," recherche," and so on. Sunshades. The new parasols are a conspicuous feature in the shops now making their best spring displays. Those of chine silk of the most exquisite tints, figure largely in the assort- ment on view, whi.st among the more expen- sive ones are the hand-painted chiffons, which only the long purse can afford. In designs those of an ornithological description seem to be first favourites, all kinds of birds being displayed thereon. There are fewer eccentricities in the way of handles, and. for the most part makers have confined these to those of the ordinal carved wood descrip- tion. It seems early 'yet to be thinking about parasols, but with hats of less conspicuous size coming into favour, the sunshade will assume a greater importance this season. The "Cottage Bonnet." Parisian mil'iners have lately been intro- ducing the old world cottage bonnet to such of their customers who are sufficiently young and sufficiently pretty to wear it successfully. There is no doubt that quite young and pretty girls look their best in this quaint, old-fa- shioned headgear; but there is not the remot- est chanc-e of it. becoming popular. Perhaps it would be as well—from a heath point of view-if there were, as the doctors are generally agreed that neuralgia in the head, from which so many women suffer—more or less-nowadays, is due to the "inefficient cov- erings" with which we provide ourselves. High Collars. Collars are very high, and the woman pos- sessed of little neck is ilikely to feel desper- ate. A skilful modiste, however, can do much to mitigate her sugerings by cutting the gown somewhat low, and then adding a high col- lar, thus giving the idea of the approved swan-like throat. Collarless bodices and blouses are no longer correct, and the escape we may thereby hope for, from exhibitions of undesirable necks and rows of imitation pearl beads, is one for which we shall be thankful. An Old Friend. Fabrics come and fabjics go, but navy blue serge is as usual, well to the fore, moderately rough surfaces being preferred—the very rough face has lately been reserved for autumn wear, and the very smooth varieties remain out of date. Touched with white, and worn with white vests, or shirts, and a blue hat trimmed with red flowtrs of the fashidnab e dead leaf shades, whiefc by the way, should be repeated in the lining of the coat or coatee, the underskirt frills, and en tout cas; such a toilette looks extremely well, and to the generality of women proves most be- coming. coming. ] Easter Weddings. With the passing of Lent, will come a num- ber of society weddings, many of which have been fixed for Easter week. The notion of the sheaf of li.ies, or a prayer book, is among those past and gone, and brides are preferring to carry onc.e more the beautiful shower bouquet which always adds to the finishing touch to their toilettes. The pretty fashion of carrying flowers, once usual among guest is numbered among those past and gone, which is a matter for regret, as deprived of a muff, umbrella, or even a card-case, it is difficult to know how to gracefully dispose of one's hands. it

TOGO'S SEAMED 600 JAR^XYESE SAILORS IN LONDON. For yeaw past it has been no uncommon thing to see bands of men from the Japanese navy marching through the streets of London, under the command of very stiff and erect little officers, on the way to look upon the sights of the metropolis. There are Japanese seamen in London once more. Six hundred of them ar- rived on Saturday to man the two battleships which have been built in English yards for the Japanese Navy. But -what a change has come over the British attitude towards tnem! They are no longer intelligent schoolboys in the game of naval war- fare. They fought at Tushima and sank a hostile naN- they reflect the glamour of Togo; y 0 c' and they are acclaimed as heroes of the sea by the nation which has made the biggest name upon its waters. The Lord Mayor, the populace, and the theatres are competing for the chance to do them honour. And it is pleasant to reflect mat, amidst all the entertainments arranged out of compliment to them, their chief pride in being in England is that they are now treading the land of Nelson. 0 The battleship Katori has been built at Bar- row, and the Kashima at Newcastle. The 600 men have come to man the vessels, and take them to Japan in a month or so. They came to England by the Ivo Maru, of the Nippon Yusen Kaisha line. Owing to an easterly gale in the English Channel, they were twenty hours behind their time in reaching the Thames, whereby one day of the arranged festivities was lost. It was Saturday morning before the vessel reached Gravesend, and then, to make matters worse, an awkward pause arose. Two men were ill. One at least was suffering from typhoid fever. He was taken ashore to hos- pital, and, luckily for the crew, the port authori- ties did not think it necessary to put the vessel in quarantine. The Ivo Maru was towed into the Roval Albert Dock soon after noon. She arrived in a whirl of snow and sleet, and the wind was biting. But Togo's bluejackets did not seem to mind in the least. It was Tsushima weather, and they were in Nelson's river. They swarmed the decks, gazed on the wind-lashed water, waved their caps and cheered. Dockyard men and boys raised their voices in Banzais" of doubtful pronunciation. Togo's seamen re- sponded with showers of cigarettes and small Japanese coins, and the longer the cheer lasted the heavier was the shower of cigarettes. At last there was a call to attention. The 600 bluejackets paraded on the deck, and they were addressed by Captain S'akomoto, of the Katori, and Commander Kamimura, of the Kashima. The essence of their addresses was precisely the same as that of English addresses from the quarter-deck in similar conditions: "Much hospitality awaits you. Have a good time. But remember that the prestige of Japan is in your hands, and that the eyes of your countrymen are upon you." The men were delighted on Sundaywhen told that the day's business was a visit to the Royal Naval College at Greenwich. They respect it because Admiral Togo received his early train- ing there. They revere it because of its associa- tion with the mighty Nelson-in memory of whom, just like the British tars, they wear the black silk scarf tied in a sailor's knot under the collar. Shortly after eleven o'clock the order was given to the men to prepare for departure, and within half an hour all were in readiness. The men lined up on the quayside, Lieutenant So6a, he officer who succeeded in "bottling up" Port Arthur, being in command. They marched to Woolwich Ferry, where the London County Council steamers Raleigh, and Morris were in waiting. The line of route was crowded with people, who cheered lustily as the 600 sturdy little sailors pns-^d along. After going several miles up the river the boats returned to Greenwich, and the men were received at the pier by the mayor, attired in his rnbrs. Mr. R. S. Jackson, the member for the borough, and a group cf aldermen and coun- cillors. Lieutenant Sosa was accorded an en- thusiastic welcome. The Mayor's greetings having been interpreted to the men, they marched to the Royal Naval College, where they were disbanded and allowed to roam at will in the Painted Hall and the museum. Every picture and relic of Nelson was subjected to a rigid scrutiny, and the aid of interpreters was demanded on all hand., to enable the sailors to appreciate the inscriptions attached to the pictures and relics. They were deeply in- terested in t]y> nortrait of Nelson and the paint- ing? on each side cf it, representing the Victory in full battle array and the death of the hero. Tho-e among them who possessed a little English managed to convey to their entertainers that they understood the compliment which was in- tended. "One hundred years ago—Nelson— Victory. Again one hundred years, Togo." The officers and sailors were divided on Mon- day into two parties. One of them visited St. Paul's Catb--dral-ps-jirig- special attention to Nelson's tomb in the crypt—the Law Courts, the Thames Embankment, and Westminster Abbey. On leaving the Abbey they were enter- tained at luncheon in the Caxton Hall by Japanese firms in London, drove through Hyde- park, and then proceeded to the Coliseum, where a special performance was organised for their benefit. In the meantime the officers, 28 in number, were entertained at luncheon by tire Lord Mayor at tlie,Mans:on Howe.
