OLD-FASHIONED PRIZE- FIGHTERS. Prize-fighting has been dead so lon-tbe recent eo-called "revival is not worthy of consideration -that its famous professors seem to belong to accient history. Many will be surprised, there- fore, to learn that the conqueror of Heenan, Tom King, who died on Wednesday, was only 52years of age. Jem Mace, the hero of a hundred fights," is now, we believe, the only survivor of the old-fashioned prize-fighters— the prize fighters who fuugbt.-Globe.
11 THE FASTING MAN. I [ DAILY N'KW.S TELEGRAM.] MADRID, Sunday.—The Italian Succi has completed half of his fast. The first 15 days made him lose only nine kilogrammes. He fences daily with several swordsmen to show his agility. He takes nothing but small quantities of water. The medical men three times a day examine his stomach with an instrument to see if he has taken food. Doctors and journalists watch him night and day. Succi talks with the many visitors to the exhibition who go to see him every day, and seems to enjoy perfect health. He is in high spirits.

VALUE OF LAND IN MONMOUTH SHiRE. At a recent .sale at Newport of grazing and other farming land on the famous Caldicott Level, 386 acros were sold at prices aggregating nearly £ 17.000. The Church Farm, of 72 acres, in the parish of Red wick, changed hands at E4,500 another farm, known as West End, in the parish of Caldicott, containing 64a 2r 19p, sold for LS,SOO; the Grange Fields Farm. in Red wick parish, with an acreage of 85 i 3r 33p, for £ 2.600, The other lanil was in tlie parishes-, of Magor, Roggiet, Goldcliffe, ajd Nash. Nearly every Jot of land was sold subject to a sea-wall liability. The value varied to a considerable extent one piece of land m Undy parish, of 37it lr 32p, reached £ 1,240; another piece, known as the Salt Wharf, in Roggiet, (,f nearly equal acreage, namely, 34a Or lOp, obtaiued only £700. On the other hand, perhaps, the best price was got for a couple of acres in the parish of Nash, which, even in these times of agricultural depression and consequent cheapness of land, realised L150. Leaving out the 27 perches which were thrown in with the two acres, this is at the rate of £75 per acre, and the top price realised. The average per acre throughout was £43. <
AN UNSOLVABLE PROBLEM AT NEWPORT. Ellen Shean, a diminutive woman, fashionably I attired, made her eighth appearance this year at Newport police-court this morning. On Saturday night, shortly after twelve o'clock, a constable found the prisoner the sport of half-a- dozen sailors. She was inrapakly drunk, and the sailors were alternately carrying her aloft in their arms and throwing her down. This occurred in Mountjoy-street, one of the side thoroughfares. The fficer rescued her, and Pj1'1 into a handcart.— The prisoner, demure y, said she was going home. —The Ma««strafces ufrk 'Hume!" Where is her homo? Thi,, i,, tile firs I've heard: of he home.-P.S. Franklin prisouer had bftHl turned out of several lodgings to his knowledge.- The MaK's*)ra'eR Clerk, lolto tocc, explained to the bench that pritsonet- h .d been ruined whilst acting as housekeeper to a man, and that a child had been aiffliated i>n him. She was a problem, added Mr Keswick, that he did not know how to solve. The police stated that the last penalty, suspended on her agreeing to leave the town, had not been sa.tistied.-Ordered to pay 10-s or a week's imprisonment. —Altogether prisoner has made 25 appearances since 1885.

Why shouldn't he report himself he was no thiet, but got liia living by the sweat of his brow 1—The Magistrates' Clerk This man was convicted at Monmouth assizes ill July, 1882, for wounding his wife, and got seven years' penal servitude. It. must have been a bad case.—Prisoner (with line sarcasm): It was a bad case. i was only in three months when she married again. It was a terrible case!-The Magistrates' Clerk pointed out that prisoner had committed no offence in Newport, as 48 hours were allowed by law for him to report himself, and prisoner only came to Newport on Sunday after- noon.—Inspector Winmill asked for a remand to communicate with Barrow, and this was granted, but the court mercifully offered bail, and directed that the telegraph should be resorted to in order if possible to abridge the prisoner's detention.
TAt-F VALE RAILWAY PROSE- CUTION AT PENARTW. At the Penarth police-court, this inorning- before Messrs J. S. Corbett and J. S. Batchelor Thomas Hayes was charged with impeding a servant of the Taff Vale Railway Company in the performance of his duty.-William Felton. stationmaster, produced a copy of the bye,-law,, the first of which states that every passenger shall, on demand, show his ticket.—John Evans, a porter, said be was at the door to examine the passengers' tickets before they uassed on to the platform.

He then pushed witness through the doorway on to the platform, and proceeded to the train.—Mr Join, railway inspector, said he baw the defendant push the previous witness on to the platform, and asked what was the matter. To him defendant positively refused to show Ills ticket. Incousrquenco of the disturbance Evans was unable to examine the tickets of passengers who followed.

Terrible Canadian Balloon Accident. A FALL OF ONE THOUSAND FEET I NECK, ARMS, AND LEGS BROKEN. [SPECIAL TELEGRAM FROM OUR OWN KKPORTKR.] Mail news from Canada states that on Wednesday week at the Central Canada Exhibition at Ottawa one of the attractions was a balloon ascent, in which Professor Williams, after reaching a height of 1,000 feet, was to descend by means of a parachute. Fully 5,000 persons were on the exhibition grounds to watch the performance and assist the professor. Many willing hands stood around holding on to the serial monster until it should be inflated, aad the words "Let go!" given. Among the crowd was a young man named Wensley, who had secured a good hold on the rope running around the bottom of the balloon. All was ready, and the professor shouted Let go," when, to the surprise of everyone, Wensley still maintained his hold on the ropo, deaf to all the cries of the crowd to drop. Afrer he had reached about 50 feet in the air he shouted twice, appearing to have recovered his senses on realising the perilous situation he was now iu. But it was too late, and with the balloon rapidly going upward, he kept his grasp, endea- vouring to raise his leg through the rope to give him a hold. After he had reached a height of about one thousand feet he was seeu by the breathless crowd below to draw him- self up, as a last effort to save himself, and then his hold (relaxed, and with lightning speed he commenced his descent towards the earth. At this point the excitement among the witnesses was beyond description. Women fainted, and a panic was narrowly averted. When the first part of the fall was commenced he came feet foremost, but suddenly turned a somersault, and, with outstretched arms and legs, struck the earth. The body fell to the ground about 30 yards from where the balloon started. A rush was made for the spot where the lifeless mass of humanity lay disfigured almost beyond recognition. Neck, arms, and legs were broken. Life must have been ended before the ground was reached. Professor Williams, ignorant of the terrible tragedy, cut adrift from his balloon, to commence his descent, about twenty seconds after poor Wensley had started downward, and when he learned of the terrible accident he was completely prostrated.
THIRTY-THREE WIVES. The Champion Bigamist of the North- West. When James W. Brown, the champion Benedict of the North-West, tottered into the Recorder's Court-room at Detroit the other afternoon, Le looked as if the fact that he was the husband of 30 womeu had sunk deep into his soui, A good deal of sympathy bad been temporarily worked up for Brown, and even those of his dupes who were present had their hearts touched by his appearance He came in palsied and decrepit, his face of an ashen hue and his hair and beard awry and matted. He looked neither to the front nor to the tear, shunning always the eyes of the gaiaxy of women who once called him husband. The trial, which lasted only three hours, developed the fact that Brown's appearance and condition were due to eating soap, which he had stolen from ^tlie gaol washstaud, and which he had chewed purposely to deceive the court and jury and excite sympathy. There was a very large attendance. There were old and young women, blondes and brunettes; homely and comely women, richly and poorly dressed—women of all nationalities. They formed only a small contingent of the dupes who once thought that they were lawfully the wives of Brown. The complaint on which he was tried was sworn to by only one of them Mary Benjamin a. young lady who married the prisoner in Detroit on August 27ih last year. Four others of his victims—HelenBrownlee, Annie Witners, Annie M. Hagel, and Nanjy Roberts also testified. Five ministers swore to marrying Brown to as many different women. It is asserted by the police that Brown has married no fewer than 33 times since 1383. His usual method was to advertise for a housekeeper, marry such of the applicants as he selected for the place, representing himself as a widower, and then desert his victims after a few days. He lived with Miss Benjamin six days, with Miss Robertson five days, with Miss Witners three days, with another two weeks, and the longest time he lived with any of the 33 was a month. After the five wives named above and as :nany ministers had proved those marriages, the people's case was submitted, and Brown took his stand as his own and only witness. During his examination Nancy Robertson could not control her indignation, and branded Brown as a deeply-dyed scoundrel. The jury thought so too, and convicted him in just four minutes. Sentence was deferred.

TERRIBLE DEATH OF A SOMNAM- BULIST AT SCARBOROUGH. Late on Saturday night a cab proprietor, Amos Jackson, whose establishment is in North Marine- road, Scarborough, communicated to the police that" something" had fallen into his backyard, and npun two officers investigating the matter they discovered tho dead body of a girl, clad only in a uightdress, lying there, the skull being fractured and the right arm broken. Subsequent inquiries showed that the deceased's name was Annio Watson, and that she was nine years of age, the daughter of John Watson, a joiner, who keeps a lodging house nine houses away. The girl, with other children, slept in the attic, and it is clear that Sh0 obtained access to the roofs, walked along the tiles over the distance of the intervening bouses, and fell into the yard of Jackson, whose house is the last of the row, whilst suffering from a fit of nomuambulism. The distance from the roof of Jackson's house to the place were the body was found is 40 feet.
THE BEST COLLECTION OF CLOCKS AND WHTCHES. The most important recent acquisition at the British Museum is in the shape of I a bequest to the Department of British and Mediaeval Antiquities by the late Mr Octavius Morgan. Mr Morgan, a brother of Lord Tredegar, was an indefatigable collector of clocks and watches, and bjs bequest will raise the historical collection of those objects under Mr Frank's care to probably the best of its kind in Europe. One feature of especial interest, but not yet placed iu the museum galleries, is an elaborate clock with moving figures, uearly resembling the celebrated one in Strasburg Cathedral, and the work of the same makers.

The Representation of Merthyr. LETTER FROM MR ARNOLD MORLEY, M.P. Mr D. A. Thorn as, M.P., having written to Mr Arnold Morley, the chief whip of the Liberal party, calling his attention to the inferences Mr Pritchard Morgan had drawn from a certain letter of his (Mr Morley'.s), has received the following reply Auchnashellach, Koss-sbire, October 6, 1888. Dear Mr Thomas,—Your letter has been forwarded to me in Scotland. I am surprised to hear that a letter written by me in reply to a communication from Merthyr, and which was, I believe, marked" private," has been used publicly in the. way you mention. It certainly was not intended by me for that purpose, as I should be most adverse to doing anything which misht even have the appearance of influencing the decision of the party in the constituency in the matter of the selection of a candidate, and especially so where, as in the case of Alertllyr, there is a represen. tative organisatisii formed for the purpose. I am, yours faithfully, ARNOLD MORLEY. The National League and Mr Ffoulkes Griffiths. The local branches of the National League at Dowlais, Merthyr, Aberdare, and Mountain Ash have resolved to support the Liberal Association candidate, Mr Ffoulkes Griffiths.
SHAKESPEARE AS HE WAS. The management of the Court Theatre at Munich have it in contemplation to give during the winter season a series of performances of Shakespeare's English historical plays. But, reversing the fashion of modern times, it is proposed to represent the plays as nearly as possible as they were presented by Shakespeare and his friends in the old Globe Theatre, with the same scanty accessories and modest equip- ment.

I To-day's Telegrams. False Alarms, but Nothing New. The Press Association says :—Thare is nothing new to report this morniDg in connection with the East End tragedies. Several false alarms were raised during the night that important arrests had been made, but each proved baseless. A number of descriptions of suspicious persons seen at Oxford-street, Commercial-street, Leyton- stone, Mitre-square, Tottenham, Wimbledon, Battersea, and Hammersmith bave been circulated by the police. The inquest on the remains found near Whitehall will be opened at three o'clock to-day. A Sunday School Teacher Arrested. Upon iuquiry at tho East End polico-atatiou this morning a representative of the Central News was informed that no further arrests had been made in connection with the Whitechapel murders. The man arrested last night has been released, it having been ascertained that be is a Sunday School teacher, occupying a most respecta- ble position. The razor found in his bag was that which he used for the ordinary purpose. More Spiritualistic Nonsense. At another spiritualistic seance held at Bolton yesterday a medium claims to have obtained a description of the Whitechapel murderer, which she has given, and adds that he will be caught in the act of committing another murder. I Threatening Women. Thomas Johnson, a travelling tailor, was sent to gi1.01 for a month, in default of finding sureties at Croydon to-day, for threatening two married women in a public-house there. The affair caused much excitement following upon the recent London outrages. Inquiries Amongst Butchers, but Still No Clue, The Central News says that at noon no one was in custody in connection with the murders at any of the East End stations, The police have searched all the lodging-houses in Limehouse Shadwell, Sf. GeorgeVin-the-East, Spitalfields, and the Borough, as well as others at Hoxtou and Islingj^n, but nothing which will afford them a clue 1.™ been discovered. Enquiries, too, have been made amongst local butchers and at all the laughterhouses to find out where anyone recently employed in this capacity has lately become deranged. These inquiries, too, have been fruitless. It is pointed out as a siugular coinci- dence that all the murdered women have at one time or another lodged in houses in Flower and Deau-streot, and from this it is thought likely that the murderer has known his victims personally before taking their lives. Descriptions of Suspicious Persons. The police have circulated throughout the Metropolitan area descriptions of suspicious persons who it may reasonably be supposed are connected with the recent tragedies in tho East End. Information respecting these suspects has been received from mauy stations in the Metro- politan district, there being iu all about ten different descriptions which vary considerably in many resptc s, Tho present whereabuuts of the persons so described are unknown. THE LORD MAYOR OF LONDON AND THE WHITECHAPEL MURDERS. [OKNTRAL NKWS TKLKGUAM.) BUOSSKLS, Monday.—The Independence Beige publishes an interview of one of it-i representa- tives with Mr De Keyser, Lord Mayor of London, concerning the recent Whitcchapel tragedies. His lordship expresses tho belief that tho assassiu is undoubtedly mad. Should lie recommence his atrocious crimes, he will assuredly be taken in tho act, though it would not be surprising if he should soon commit suicide. The Lord Mayor states that he neither bas uor had any belief that the offer of a reward would prove eflic.ici(.tls ii) bringing the murderer to justice, and he only consented to adopt the course which lie has done in this respect to calm the public excitement. He has written, he says, to Mt Matthews to explaiu tlm, and to disavow all idea of opposition to the Government's decision. His lordship attributed the ministerial attacks which have been made to ambitious persons who are seeking by these means to secure election to the new county council. liu is sure that the police force tor tho city of London is sufficiently large. ANOTHER HORRIBLE DISCOVERY IN LONDON. A Woman's Body Found in the Thames. Another body of a woman unknown was found in the Thames t,).day near Waterloo Bridge. The deceased, who appeared about 30 years of age, had met her death by drowning about ten days ago. FUNERAL OF ONE OF THE VICTIMS. The funeral of Katheriue Eùdliwes, tie victim of the latest of the Whitechapel tragedies, took place to-day at Ilford. The funeral cortege started at 1.30 from the city mortuary iu Golden-lane, out- side which a great crowd had congregated, the traffic in the thoroughfare being almost stopped. The body was enclosed in It) aii eiiii aiid was borne in a glass car drawn by a lJalr of horses, and was followed by a mourning couch, ill which were deceased's sisters—Mrs Eliza Gold, Mrs Elizabeth Fisher, Mrs Harriot Jones, and tho mau Kelly, with whom Eddowes lived. The mourning coaches had some difficulty in penetra- ting the large crowd outside, among whom threats agaiust Jack the Ripper were loud and frequeut. False Alarm at Newport. I On Saturday evening a man named Bennett presented himself at the Newport police ttice and asserted that a fellow answering the description jf the Whitechapel murderer was drinking in a public-house in another part of the town. The head constable questioned Bennett, who was iu liquor, to find out that the II-otie which pritici- pally actuated him was the hopy of getting the £1,200 which had been offered for the true murderer's apprehension, and which, as Bennett I pointed out, would tnake him comfortable for the remainder of his days. The I cross-questioning showed that Bennett had known the man for some time, and for that and other reasons the police attached no importance to his statement. But what is of importance, although Mr Secretary Matthews cannot see it, is, by a Government grant, to make the reward so large as to sharpen and excite the intellects of people until the whole of Whitechapel searches itself through and through and uuearths the human ghoul who works so cruelly in its midst.
A Startling Discovery. I JACK THE RIPPEfl" WRITES UPON THE WALL. He Will Protect Honest Women. 1 The Central News says a startling fact has just coma to light in reference to the recent Whitechapel murders, which goes somewhat towards clearing up the mystery with which the crimes have been surrouuded. After killing Katharine Eddowes in "Mitre. square tho murderer, it is now known, walked to Goulstone- street, where he threw away the pitce of the deceased woman's apron upon which he had wiped his bloody hands and the knife. Within a few feet of this spot he bad written upon the wall—"The Jews shall not be blamed for nothing." MoBt unfortunately one of the police officers gave orders for this writing to be immediately sponged out, probably with a view of stilling the morbid curiosity which it would certainly have aroused, but in so doing a very important link was destroyed, for had the writing been photographed a certain clue would have been in the hands of the authorities. The witnesses who saw the writing, however, state that it was similar in character to the letters sent to the OeDtral News, and signed Jack the Ripper, and though it would have been far better to have clearly demonstrated this by photography, there is now every reasou to believe that the writer of the lotter and post card sent to the Ceutral News (fac siinilies of which are now. to be seen outside every police-station) is the actual murderer. The police consequently are very anxious that any citizen who can identify the handwriting should without delay communicate with the authorities. The Central News, since tho original letter and postcard of Jack the Ripper" was published, has received from thirty to forty communications daily signed Jack the Ripper," evidently the concoction of silly notoriety hunters. A third communication, however, bas been re- received from the writer of the original "Jack the Ripper letter and postcard, which, acting upon official advice, it has been deemed prudent to with- hold for the present. It may be stated, however, that although the miscreant avows his intention of oommitting further crimes shortly, it is only agaiust prostitutes that. his threats are directed, bis desire being to respect and protect honest women.
A Mysterious Affair. On Saturday afternoon a very mysterious occurrence was reported by Mr Lusk, jun., one of the sons of Mr George Lusk, the chairman of the vigilance committee. A man apparently frem thirty to forty years of age, 5ft 9in in height, florid complexion, with bushy brown beard whiskers, and moustache, went to the private residence of Mr Lusk. He happened to be at a tavern kept by his son, and thither the man went; and after asking all sorts of questions relative to the beats taken by members of the committee, attempted to induce Mr Lusk to enter a private room with him. The stranger's appearance was, however, so repulsive and forbidding that Mr Lusk declined, but consented to hold a quiet conversation with him in the bar parlour. The two wero talking when the stranger drew a pencil from his pocket, and purposely dropped it over the side of the table, at the same time saying, Pick that up." Just as Mr Lusk turned to do so he noticed the stranger make a swift though silent movement with his right hand towards his side pocket, and, seeing that he was detected, assumed a nonchalant air, and asked to be directed to the nearest coffee and dining-rooms. Mr Lusk directed him to a house In the Mile End- ruad, aud followed him, but he escaped in a most extraordinary manner. I "JACK THE RIPPER" AT CARDIFF- Exciting Scene in "Tiger Bay." On Sunday considerable excitement was caused in that usually calm retreat known at Cardiff as Tiger Bay by the report that "Jack the Ripper was in the neighbourhood, and thai he was prowl- ing about for prey. Imagination seized upon tbe statement, and wove around it a vast amount of corroborative detail. The assumed fiend was invested with a long glittering blade concealed beneath his coat, and his face was.: said to be possessed of a diabolical glare. Tiger Bay was ill a state of great excitemcnt, and the unfortunate man was swooped down upon. In a few moments a crowd of about 200 men, women, and boys were on the war path, and proceeded to hunt the unhappy wayfarer. He was raced around the "bay," hit, thumped, stoned, and In other ways maltreated, and (according to his own statement) was thrown several times into the canal. His story may be exaggerated facit indig iaUo version; but there can be no doubt that when the excitement was allayed, and the pursuers returned to their peace- ful ahoàF, he was left in a pitiable condition. His clothes were wet through and covered with mud, and he presented numerous maiks af deli- cate attention upon his person. He was obliged finally to have recourse to tho police-station for shelter where he poured his woes into the sympathetic ears of the constable in charge. The police g-ave him their protection, and promised him immunity from a similar assault.
ALLEGED STARTLING DISCOVEftY BY SPIRITUALISTS. Extraordinary Statement to the Cardiff Police. For the nonce the centre of the interest which is attached to the terrible London tragedies of the past few weeks has been transferred from White- !"apel to Cardiff. To aceompl sh this remarkable state or -,ifairs some occult agency was evidently require(i-un,esr, indeed, the murderer himself had turned up 111 our midst—and this motive power has been fupplted by the believers in spiritualism. On Saturday afternoon a respectably dressed middle-aged woman entered the Cardiff Central Police-station amt addressed herself to the officer who happened to bo in charge for the moment. She informed him very seriously that she believed she had discovered the personality and whereabouts of the Whitechapel murderer, but to his sceptical mind the value of the infoimatiou was considerably discounted by the fact that she avowed herself to be a Spiritualist, indicating that it was by this means that the momentous disclosure had teen m.ide. However, here is the pith of her story, which we give for what it is worth. The previous evening, at the witching hour of night, when churchyards yawn iiiid gttve,, give up their dead, tho informant, together with five friends, assembled in a house in Godfrey-street, Newtown, and gathered round the mystic table. They placed their twelve hands with the fingers outstretched on the table, each of the six persons joining his thumbs and completing the magnetic circuit by touching with his little lingers those of his neighbours 011 either side. In solemn silence they and the lender of the party invoked the sl)ii- It (;I Elisabeth Stride, who was foully iione to death in Whitechapel last Sunday morning. For a time there was iio response. Pale with determination, yot feeling somewhat creepy 111 I heir spinal cords, the company persevered, waiting awe stricken for they knew not what. At last the table gave evident signs of disturbance, and after a few violent lumps in erratic directions the magic wood gave forth tho weird knocks which annouueed the presence of the dead among the living. Who art tliou ?" queried the spokesman of the spiritualists 111 mechanical, yet trembling tones. .Knock, kuock, went the table, as it. unerringly spelled out the words, "Elizabeth Stride Dy whuUI wert thuu murdered?"' was tbe next question. Again did the table oscillate and l'itp out tho necessary letters, "B-y a..i-a-n n-a ine-d J-o-h-n-n-y D-o-n-n-e-1-1-e-y," and then wanning vindictively to the congenial task of giving up to justice the foul slaughterer, He lives at number thirteen Cnrnlllercial.roaJ," or treeL "-which of the two tnoroughiarea it was the listeners in their excitement could not positively determine. Did he commit all the Whitechapel murders V' "No," rapped the spirit. He is one of a gang of twelve who have sworn to commit these crimes, aud different members of the gang have done the various 1)\Uluer:i. At this juncture the current of magnetism was suddenly broken, nor could II be restored. Elizabeth Stride had wandered t ff into the chilly night, and the party separated. The conversation above given is ;t verbatim record of the occurrence which was tendered to the police in all seriousness. There the matter stands.
THE WHITEHALL MYSTERY. I Respecting the Whitehall mystery, it is stated that the police have discovered that the flowered i-kirt round the corpse was obtained from a London West End draper, and that the piece of newspaper wrapped up with the body belongs to one bearing date Augu.,t 24th. The detectivo police are most assiduously in vestigating cases of missing young women, and their attention has been specially directed to the remarkable disappearance of a girl named Lily Vass, between 17 and 18 years of age, who left her home, No. 1 45, Tettcott-road, Chelsea, 011 July 19th last, and has never been seen or heard of since by her friends. The result of the examination by Dr. Bond and Hibberd of the remains which were brought from Guildford revealed that they belonged to a bear. The trunk found at Whitehall and the arm dis- covered at Puulico haye been taken out of the spirits, in which they were being preserved, in order to he dried, and that an endeavour may be made to restore them to their normal size and shape. Instructions have also been given for them to be photographed. The inquest will be opeued to-day (Monday).
A STEAMER ABANDONED. I Four Lives Lost. A Lloyd's telegram from Singapore reports that the steamer Kddare has been abandoned in a sinking state. The boatawaiii carpenter and two uatives were drowned, but the rest of the crew were saved. The Kildare was of 2,277 tons, and owned in Sunderland.
FIRE AT ABERDOUH. I Three Men Burnt to Death. I Three men were burnt to death, this morning, by a fire which destroyed a number of workmen's huts erected near Abrr- dour for the convenience of the meu working on the new Railway being constructed along the Firth of the lorth from Inverketling to Aberdour, There wete 111 lueu sleeping in the buts, but all but three escaped with the loss of their clothes. Three bodies were found in the debris, but quite unrecognisable. The flumes are supposed to have originated from a cooking apparatus.

Gallops of theCesar-ewitch Horses. The weather being delightfully tine. a most enjoyable few houis were spent on the training grounds at New. market this uotning, and, as usual, on the day before the Cesarewitch most of the important work was done on-the racecourse side. Kunilworth, after cantering, went about a mile a nd a half slowly 011 the tan ridden by Luke The north country horse moved treely and well, and whatever he may have done before he did not cough this morning at'er pulling up. Phil and Polydor went about a mile and a half on the July Cour-e, and no possible fault could be found with the condition of either. Acme, iu company with Holy- rood an,1 Go\ernor Waller, went across the flat at a good pace, an.1 the former, who is one of the grandest looking horses in training, pleased everyone with his splendid style of going. Reve d'Or, ri iden by (i Bairett,and Button Parl;, by Martin, covered a mile and a ball slow ly both went well, and ti1 ey have evi- deutly undergone splendid preparation for the race. Oliver Twist, ridden by Watts, went two miles by him- self, and a similar mstance was covered by CotiLou, who was brought along the last nnle by Patchouli. Tonaiis went about one mile and Three quarters, the old horse, who looks wonderfully fit, pulling up sound and well. Matin Beil covered nearly a mile and three Quarter, and all connected wjih the north iiiareare very fond of her cbanee. White Flag and Frank went a iiic, allop of a iuile ;(n'l a half, and Millstream covered nearly two miles smartly, that distance being also negotiated by East Indian. Tenebreuse. Trayies, and Savile did tiitir work 011 the Bury-side of the town, where they each covered about a mile and a baif at a good pace.

An official notice has been issued tirging householders to adopt various sanitary precautions, and point- ing out the penalties to which persons knowingly o-onveying contagion are liable. Isolated cases of scarlet fever have occurred for some time but there has been a natural desire on the part of those immediately concerned to keep the matter quiet, and the authorities also have wished to prevent the public from being frightened. It appears now that the outbreak is so terious that it can no longer be ignored.
I SPORTING NOTES. By George Frederick, The Cesarewitcii problem is a perplexing one, more especially to people who prefer to be guided by market operations. A general unsteadiness has prevailed during the last few days among the front rank of favourites, most of whom have been operated against in a mauner suggestive of but faint hopes of victory. In addition to the unsatis- factory nionetaiy operations, tho re is also no pos- sible method of gauging the form of the majority of the candidates engyge.i, and herein lies the difficulty of compiling anything like a fairly accurate esttmat" of the abilities of the horses likely to see tha post to morrow. Conseouently the handicap presents a very open appearauce, and it is just probable that the race may be captured by one of the extre/ce outsiders. Before, however, dealing further with the contest for the last time it may be' advisubie to give an estimate i of the strength o till) field, winch may be gathered from the following hst of Probable Starters and Jockeys. i M P A'I-.nonfs Xenebivu.-ie, 4y 8st I2ib .T Cannon j Mr H Feiiwick s Phil. 4y 8sr lllb Rickaby llicl-aby Lord Lurgans Acme, 3y Sst lllb F Webb Duk of Beaufort's Reve u'Or, 4y 8t Sib Barrets Sit' \V Thruck¡¡¡'rLOn', Uliv' '1\\ it. 5y 8,;t SIb..

Rooiueon General Pear»oa"s Ruddigore, ty 7st 101b S Loates Mr R 6 Evans's Toiians, aged 7st 31b Mr C Perkins's Matin Led, 4y 7st 61b Chandley Mr A C Barclay's Clan Chat tan 3y 7st 51b Mr K Jones's Admiral Benbow, 3y 7st 5lb T Loates General Williams's Governor Waller, 4y 7st 31b Mr Naylor's White Flag, 3v 7st 2io ( Woodburn Sir R jardinc's Mosspaul, 3y 7st lib Lord Chohnondeley's Polydoi^ 3y 7st lib Wall Mr W I'Anson's Kenilworth, 3y 7st lib .Luke Air Jo'isiffe's Uhythm, 4y 7st Ibbets Mr IT Lambert's Millstream, 5y bs: 12ib Calder Mr Naylor's Frank, 3y 5nt 121b Biake Mr Miller's Beilona, by 5st lllb To classi!y the aoove according to form is an impossibility. This :s ths case more especially with reference to Acme, Kenii worth, and Governor Wailei-, who have not been seen in public this season, while Poiydar ran only once, and then very badly therefore no trustworthy estimate can be formed of these candidates beyond what is revealed by the market. Then, again, the moderate character of last year's three-year-olds makes the situation still more unsatisfactory, so that there is no way of properly gauging Tenebreuse's claims when compared with the English representatives. One thing in favour of the French mare is her ability to stay tho course, and her defeat of The Baron aud Merry Hampton last year may be more creditable than it looks on paper. There is scarcely any doubt of her superiority to Phil and Reve d'Or, and it may be taken for granted that if Tenebreuse cannot win there is nut much hope for the two English four- year-olds mentioned. Of Acme nothing is known beyond what has been seen of the colt at exercise, but it is evident he has some shrewd admi ers. His work, however, has scarcely been iu consonance with a good Cesarewitch preparation, but beyond the fact that he is greatly fancied by some people, nothing can be urged either for or against the son of DutcÍJ Skater. Another candidate from Sherrard's stable is Governor Waller, who may turn out better than most people imagine. This horse had a creditable record last year, one of his wins being ever the last two miles of the Cesarewitch Course, so that he has evidently staying blood in his veins. Those who fancy Alec Taylor's stable are still in a lix with regard to the best from this quarter, as no satisfactory clue has yet been supplied by the market. If the race goes to Manton I think Button Park will be the hero, as it scarcely seems reasonable to suppose that Reve d'Or can beat Tenebreuse, according to iast year's form. Ben- burb may perform respectably, but if Button Park is caught in the right veiu he is certain to beat his stable companions. Beyond the fact that he can stay the distance there is nothing to be urged in favotir of Savile, as he is not by any means leniently weighted; while so far as Cotillon is concerned, I think he is held harmless by Acme, who was far superior to the former as a two year old. Trayles may win easily, but recent market operations are suggestive ot something wrong. Still, the recent stoppage in his work may not have jeopardised his chanoe for to-morrow, but it would be at least a risky proceeding to recom- mend Trayies in the face of recent events. Rud- digore has given some trouble in his preparation, and although one of my earlier fancies I tjÍ1aIl,nuw pass him by. Touans is supported by a lot of sound judges, but if the veteran triumphs to- morrow no exalted idea of the character of his beaten tiold will be forthcoming. For oue, I do not anticipate a victory for Touaiib a far more taking candidate is Matin Bell. The Nortbum- berland Plate winner has had a splendid prepara- tion, and there has not been a more genuine candidate throughout the piece. Rhythm should also be dangerous, if only for the reason that she will solely represent -Jousiffe's stable in preference to Tissaphernes and Clan Chattan. A dead set was made against Kenilworth oil Saturday, and to-day's doings (Ill the race will be anxiously awaited by those who have pinned their faith on the Malton cult. Doth Admiral Benbow and White Flag have done splendid work, and it is no secret that the latter is strongly fancied in knowing quarters. Polydor will carry the confi- dence of the Stanton people in preference to Phil, and they are not a little confident as to the prowess of that Bend Or filly. I have no faith in Millstream, while such as Frauk, Beilona, East Indian, and (Queen's Counsel do not threaten much danger. I have now oniy one more com- petitor to deal with—viz., Oliver Twist, who is a greatly improved animal. That he will run well I am assured, the only fear being his ability to last home. For some weeks I have advocated the claims of four against the fild-Kenilworth) Ruddigore, Oliver Twist, and Matin Bell-and as a final decision is now imperative, I shall discard the two former, and stand on Ienebreuse to win, with OLIVER TWIST and MATIS BltLL to follow her home.
