YANKEE YARNS. I Helping Him Out. I HeTwas'a bashful lover and had courted her long She knew be loved her and knew that he was afraid to propose. She resolved to help him out. When I get married I hope to see you at my wedding," she said. Heavens I" he gasped, I hoped to marry you myself." 11 Well," she rejoined, as her cheeks flushed to the hue of a rosy sunset, I meant I hoped to see you there as the groom." Then he fainted with joy. She Had Got Out, I A young lady clerk, newly promoted to a position of considerable responsibility in the Post Office, acquired the habit of checking everything she did. This habit had such a hold upon her that she used rr-gularly on alighting from the train on her arrival in the City every morning, to return to her carriage to see whether she had left anything behind her. The guard had noted this with some amuse- ment, and one day when she went back to the carriage, although having no parcel with her, he remarked I All right, miss you have got out if Ye But Knew." There is sometimes a cool impudence about the I Irishman's wit which is highly diverting. A car driver was presented with a shilling at his I journey's end, and grumbled loudly at the small- ness of the fare. I Faith," said he it's not. putting me off with this ye'd be if ye but knew all." The traveller's curiosity was excited, Whab do you mean ?" "Faix, that 'ud be telling." Another shilling was tendered. "And now," asked the gentleman, "what do you mean ';f ye but knew all' ?" "That I drew your honour for the last three miles without a lynch pin Business is Business. I A very original parting between a husband and his wife took place lately. The lady was about to make a voyage to New York to spend her holidays with some relations there, while her husband stnyed at home to work and supply her with the necessary funds. After placing his wife on a Cunard liner the husband withdrew to the landing stage and addressed a grou p of men who were loitering about in the following terms Which of you would like to earn a couple of ",billings Two or three answered in the affirmative, and the gentleman. after selecting his man, gave the following orders Yon see that ladv dressed in black, standing aL the ship's side ? Well, that is my wife. She will expect me to stand for at least 20 minutes and wave my handkerchief to her until the ship is out of sight. You understand ? I have no time to waste; my wife is very short-sighted, so it will do just as well if you take my place." And if the lady looks through a telescope?" I have thought of that. Bury your faca in your handkerchief as if overcome with emotion." That will cost half-a-crown extra All right. Time is more valuable to me than money, only do what I tell you. You may. in case she looks through a telescope, throw in a low hand-kisse3 at, let us say, sixpence each." The merchant thrust the money into the man's I hand, and, hurriedly looking at his watch, departed. _————

FIGHTING IN MADAGASCAR, I Frenchmen Attacked and Killed, I PARIS, Saturday.—The Antanaraivo corre- spondent of the Temps gives a graphic account of the murder of three Frenchmen, M.M. Duret de Brie, Grand, and Michaud. Warned by in. habitants of the presence of two bands of Fahavaros in the vicinity M. De Brie and his party deemed it prudent to return to Antananarivo. They reached the village of Kelymafana about the end of March, and were attacked by about 100 Fahavaros, the firing being kept up for several hours. They continued their retreat early the following morning, followed by the Fahavaros, and reached the fortified village of Manarintsoa on the morning of March 30th, after a fatiguing tramp of seven hours. At noon a body of 1,500 Fahavaros, of whom aboout 100 were armed with rifles, attacked the place. His companions helped him away from the gate, and a man and woman took him into their hub. In the meantime the villagers abandoned their posts, and the Faha- varos swarmed into the village and attaqked the house in which the Frenchmen had taken refuge. M. Grand and M. Michaud fired on their assailants from the upper floors and killed several, including the chief Reunitsizehena. The assailants then set fire to the hut and compelled the defenders to leave. An interpreter named Clement was separated from the others and killed in the street, but MM. Grand and Michaud succeeded in getting into another house, from which they were again forced to retreat through the hub being set on fire. This was done no less than five times before Grand, in rushing out, was knocked down and killed. M. Michaud, now alone, was driven from house to house in the same way, and finally into the ditch, where he was pursued by two Fahavaros, whom he shot. He succeeded in olimbing up the farther side of the ditch, but found himself in the arms of a dozen savages, and he almost imme- diately fell dead, covered with wounds. Subse- quently the man and woman who had first given shelter to M. De Brie in their house were killed. The robber chief, Rainibetsimisaraka, then entered the house and fired at M. De Brie, who was in all probability already dead. About a hundred of the robbers were either killed or wounded. The native servants of the Frenchmen were stripped of their clothing and driven into the jungle, but reached Antananarivo and re- ported the affair to the Resident Gmeral.- Dctlziel.

Armenian Horrors. I Disease and Hunger Killing Hundreds. I The Committee of the Armenian Relief Fund have received, among others, the foilowing donations as Grosvenor House — Citizens of Leeds, £ 660 Archbishop of Ontario. collected in Canada, L375; Dr. Geikes, Evangelical A'hance CAnad-, 2149 Bi adford, collection by Rev. Professor Armithg^, L26 Lord Provost of Perth, 221. Further reports showing the urgency of continued aid to the sufferers have been received by the Duke of Westminster from the agents of the Armenian Relief Fund. In Harfoot there are 7,000 Armenians depending upon the fund for their daily bread. From Malatis and Arabgir it is reported that women and children are foodless and clothed in rags, Many have died from hunger aud exposure. The agent at Marash says: We have relieved 27,000 persons. We are also supporting 50 prisoners, who are 'suifpects' and not yet tried upon any charge. As the season advances the destitution increases. In the surrounding villages forced conversions stili I go on, and there are now 15,000 from the district in this town who have come in for bread and clothiug. Typhus, dysentry, and smallpox are now following in the wake of hunger, and the emaciated patients cannot withstand the inroads of disease. We earnestly plead for more aid." A dispatch from Erzeroum states that by authority of the Ambassador, Consul Graves has become president of the local relief committee. This gives the Turkish authorisies no ground for suspicion that the money sent from London is used for revolutionary purposes, which is a favourite allegation in these parts. Seven thousand pounds have already been expended, but the destitution is as great as ever. It is reported from Marden that for 12 days reliet had been suspended by order of the Government. It has been a terrible business to refuse food to the starving. If this continues longer more will die of hunger than were slain by the sword. For 50 miles round this town the desolation is com- plebe. Houses everywhere are completely sacked. We do not see one ray of hope. No improvement after months and months of waiting."

The Transvaal. I MORE COMPROMISING TELEGRAMS, ANOTHER SENSATIONAL STORY. r PABIS, Saturday.—The Temps correspon- dent at Pretoria telegraphs that the com- promising documents in the hands of the ) Transvaal Government include a series of instructions sent by Sir John Willoughby on December 9th last to the representatives of the Chartered Company at Salisbury and Buluwayo. In the letter to the Acting Administrator at Salisbury Sir ¡ John Willonghby stated that if he telegraphed the word Salisbury the Acting Administrator was to mobilise the Rhodesian cavalry in Mashonaland and Matabeleland, whereas if he telegraphed the word Buluwayo" only the Matabeleland men would be needed. Captains Napier and Spreckley were given full powers to make all the necessary arrangements. To Captain Spreckley Sir J. Willoughby wrote that if he received a telegram with the word Selujkwe" he was to inform the cable news agencies that the Rhodesian cavalry were marching towards the south. The Civil Commissioners at Buluwayo and Salisbury were furthermore informed that the men who were willing to take part in the expedition to) the south under the command of Dr. Jameson must sign contracts before a local magis- trate (Mr Vincent), and that they would receive jM5 for the three months' service with all expenses. Several maps of the district round Pretoria, drawn on the Chartered Company's official paper, have also been found. One of these was drawn by Major White in November, and another indicates the road leading to Pretoria from a spot referred to as Irene Estate Out Store The Transvaal Government, the correspondent con- tinues, also possess a telegram sent from Mafeking to Dr. Jameson during the latter's stay in Johannesburg in the month of November a telegram from Major White at Mafeking to the Chartered Company at Cape Town announcing the arrival of a number ot saddles and a telegram from Dr. Jameson, dated Mafeking, Dec. 4th, to Mr Gardner Williams at Kimberley, con- taining a request for 100 cases of ammunition. On December 10th Dr. Jim telegraphed to Mr Stevens to inform Mr Rhodes that Mr Newton, Colonial Secretary for Bechuanaland, desired to accompany him to Johannesburg, and that the journey would take about 60 honrs. On November 10th Mr Stevens wrote on the Chartered Com- pany's letter paper to Major White at Mafeking instructing him to take the delivery of three Maxims and 250,000 cartridges, and to keep them until Dr. Jameson arrived. Major White was also ad vised by Mr Stevens ot the despatch of 100 men of the Duke of Edinburgh's Volun- teers from the Cape. There are also several documents bearing the seal of the colony of Bechuanaland. -Dalziel.

CARDIFF EXHIBITION. I Attendances for the Week. I The attendance at the Cardiff Exhibition I during the past week—Monday to Saturday inclusive—amounted to 22,123 persons. In this total are included 6,933 shilling payments, 855 railway tickets, 323 children, and 9,352 season tickets, and a total attendance of 4,660 persons on Monday, for which a separate record was not taken. As previously announced, the total takings 011 tbe opening day (Saturday) were JB127 16< 3d. It is somewhat remarkable that the number of season ticket holders visiting the Exhibition on Tuesday and Wednesday was identical, viz 1,807 Children were not admitted at half-price until Wednesday. Up to the present about 3,400 season tiokeSs have been issued. On Saturday last there was the largest attendance since the opening, the respective figures being- payments, 1,987 railway tickets, 263 children, 157 season, 2 422.
PAINFUL INCIDENT, I Illness of the Rev. Aaron Davies, I Penlypridd. I We regret to state that Alderman the Rev. I Aaron Daviea, of Pontlottyn, was seized with a I severe attack of illness whilst preaching In Penuel Calvinistie Methodist Chapel, Pontypridd, on Sunday morning. The rev. gentleman, who had I travelled from London to Risca, and from thence to Pontypridd late on Saturday night, did not feel in his usual health on Sunday morning, and after proceeding some time with his sermon the I congregation were greatly alarmed to see that he was gradually failing, and eventually he was ob!iged to reaume his seat, apparently quite exhausted. He had sufficiently recovered to &ttend divine service in the evening.
THE LATE SIR JOSEPH BARNBY. The musical critic of the Observer says :—We i regret to hear that the Bamby Memorial Trust I Fund amounts as yet to little more than £ 700, mainly contributed by personal friendsof thefamily. It is true that the contributions of theCorporation and of the professors and pupils of the Guildhall School ot Music have still to come-and will no doubt more than double the sum already in hand but even then the amount will still be far from meeting the necessities of the case. Considering Joseph Baruby's services to the art of music, it is strange that a professedly sympathetic publio should allow his children (on whose behalf alone the fund will be invested) to suffer from their father's lack of prudence.
HORRIBLE DEATH. I Antther Paraffin Lamp Accident. I On Saturday night Hannan, wife of John Henry Gascoyne, Broad-lane, Sheffield, was burned to death in a most shocking manner. The son-in- aw, Douglas Avison, called and discovered a fire in the bedroom. Going to the foot of the staircase he saw her standing at the top enveloped in flames. He gave the alarm, and Joseph Field ran in. went upstairs, pulled the woman down, and found her a charred and naked corpse. Fragments of a paraffin lamp were afterwards found on the bedroom floor, where it is supposed she dropped it.
THE LITTLE HIGHLANDER. 1 By M. MOORSOM, I [COPYRIGHT.] I Please don't beat it, poor thing. Just irive it away." Ihus appealed to I desisted j irom laying my stick about the fawn-coloured -ddes of the little bullock, contenting myself yifch threatening gestures to which it rather scornfully yielded, and I then set about Releasing its prisoner. The girl's face was as charming as her voice, and the graceful activity she showed in extricating herself with my help from her awkward place of refuge was not the least of her attractions. How she had got up into it without help seemed almost a miracle, for the railings round the young tree sloped very much out- ward from the hedge on which they were placed, and below them was a steep, slip- pery sandbank also sloping forwards, with a wide miry ditch at the bottom. But with tm angry little Highlander snorting defiance behind her and throwing up the earth with aoof and horn, she had not stopped to con- sider difficulties, and had performed some- diking like a flight into the very opportunely placed cage. We walked on together towards the house, ihatting like old friends. Our friend with e long horns was perhaps not very well vithorised to introduce us. but under the jircumstances his good offices were sufficient, for I knew perfectly well that she was Rachel Surtees, and she had rightly guessed mat I was her brother Bob's most intimate criend. The footpath was a quite unfrequented 3ne, and having been besieged for some time before I came to the rescue she had Sad ample opportunity of observing her xssailant, whose handsome, shaggy counten- ance seemed to have excited her admiration. U Don't say anything about it running after me, please, Mr Kennedy," she entreated. Bob might complain to the farmer." But it's a dangerous little brute, it would be better out of this field." Oh, no, it meant no harm, it was only play. Why, if they knew they might have it killed." I thought that was not improbable in any ease, and the same idea occurred to her, for she turned a horrified face upon me. Do you think they mean to do that ? Oh, I hope not, I should be sorry. It is such a beautiful little creature, it enjoys its life so aiuoh." Oh, well, I—I don't think it is intended for the butcher, Miss Surtees. In fact I Want a few of these Highland kyloes. I'm going to buy them of Dawson, and I'll take Tare that your friend is one," said I, who had never set. eyes on the beast till now, and bad as much idea of buying a white elephant Õji any of its race. To such depths of weak- ness and duplicity may a man be reduced by love at first sight, or rather first speech, for I had already noticed her face in church. Tea was going on when we got in, and 1 lingered as long as I decently could over the sup of tepid water-bewitched, and the 1Dorselof leaden, half-toasted teacake. Mrs Surtees was not a good manager. 1 hoped she might have asked me to stay to dinner, she had done so on several times when those black-a-vised little sisters of hers were with her, and it was hard lines that she didn't seem to think of it when I should have liked to talk to pretty Ray. I gave her that name in my own mind from the arst, and it suited her exactly. She was like a ray of sunshine. To add to my annoyance, that great hulk. ing Geoffrey Hillhouse came in just before I left. I suppose there's not much harm in the fellow beyond being an idiot and too fond )f nips and pegs at odd times, but i can't ,tand him, and the sight of him exasperated me just then. I knew how Mrs Surtees would coodle over him—that woman would grovel before anybody related ever so slightly to the Peerage, and, of course, old Lady Hillhouse, with the ltarl, her eldest, and Geoffrey, her second son, were at the top oi that sort of tree in our parts. A few days later I heard that a big grouse- drive was coming off at the Castle, and that a large party of ladies had been asked to dine and sleep the night before, and to join the shooters at lunch on the moor. What Wouldn't I have given to be there when I thought of that fellow having it all his own way with Ray it made me really mad. But when a, man's property has come to him Saddled with debt and all in ,t mess, and when besides taking a couple of farms into his own hand and working hard to make them pay, he accepts the land agency of a neighbouring estate to earn a little ready ush, his time isn't exactly his own, and holidays come once in a blue moon. There is a very pretty path along the Arget's b-inks, a couple of miles or less from Surtees' place. The river flows there through beautiful shady woods, and is swift and rough, like a Devonshire stream, with great mossy boulders in it. Ray found out this place at the beginning of her visit, and delighted in it she had been there the day the little Highlander chased her. Knowing she came from a town, I asked her if she wasn't afraid to be in such solitary places alone." Afraid ? Not a bit, she answered. M There's nothing to hurt me in this quiet lountry, and I'm not at all nervous. You'll think I was frightened of that kyloe, but really I wasn't; I thought it might knock me down, and that I'd better get out of its way, but I felt no actual fear." It would have been no wonder if you had." "Perhaps not, but it is only about guns that I'm a downright coward. I used often to have a nasty dream of a man following me with me one, and it has given me a quite ridiculous dread of firearms." The path by the Arget formed one way between my two farms, and one day soon after the grouse drive I met Ray there with Hillhouse at her side. He had quite evidently taken a nip or two more than was desirable. He was lurching about with uneveu steps, carrying his gun in the most careless fashion, and when he drew behind Ray, which he did at intervals under the apparent impression that the path had narrowed, the weapon pointed straight towards her. Her face looked white and drawn with terror, and her eyes flashed a signal for help the moment I came in sight. I should have liked to kick the fellow into the river, but a gun at full cock is rather awkward besides I did not want any row. So I forced myself to look pleasant, and turned with them. Hillhouse scowled at me for doing it, but I began admiring his new gun, and his face cleared at once. Guns were his hobby. Seeing a couple of wood-pigeons on a tree, I asked him to give me a shot. Loaded, eh 7" Right enough, both barrels," he answered, carelessly, and I saw the shudder that came over Ray. I knew how she hated-bless her tender heart-to see anything killed, and I fired both barrels quite wide of the cushats, who flew away unhurt. Jrlillhouse chuckled over my failure as I haiwed him back the empty weapon, which he was now free to cut any Srtperb with that he pleased. After this Ray needed no prompting to avoid solitary walks. Some while later, however, Mrs Surtees, who was too delicate or too indolent to walk, asked her to do an errand the way to which was by the Arget bank, and not likely to confide her fears to her sister-in-law she resolved to risk it. She felt the less fear, as she knew that the Castle party were shooting a moor at some distance, and she walked on with a light heart, possibly bestowing a stray thought or two upon another unworthy person, when, on the homeward way, some impulse prompted her to glance backward, and there lo her horror was Hillhouse lurchin, about as unsteadily as before, and again carrying the un. She darted behind a tree, fervently hoping Ihat she had not yet been seen, and then pped on at her quickest pace, keeping to t;).1, fide of the path which was least in f,iC%I. Ten minutes' rapid walking brought t-c-r to the meadows leading up to the house. The gate into the tirst was Awkward to open and impossible to climb, Had whilst her trembling ifngers wrestled with the fastenings, he gained upon tar and called out to her to wait. Her foart stood still with terror she tried to penmade herself that a gun could hardly be ngerous in the hands of an accustomed Miortsman, even in the condition in which Hillhouse was but the reasoning availed little against her instinctive dread. There wm nothing for it, however, but to summon op all her courage, and assume a manner of calm indifference. "A nice dance you've led me, Miss Rachel," was his greeting what did you pelt along at such a pace for 2" I am in a hurry they are expecting friends at tea, and I shall be late," she answered, pressing on as fast as before. Hillhouse tried in vain to keep up with her light steps, and presently she slackened them, realising that the gun was less dangerous alongside than pointing at her from behind. That's right!" he exclaimed, delighted at her complaisance. Take it easy, that's what I always say easy here, of all places nice jolly sort of quiet place for spoons. I've got a thing or two to say t' ye-" Upon this he began to pour forth the love and admiration he had felt from the very first, puor Ray trying in vain to stem the flood of his incoherent eloquence. He appeared quite incapable of comprehending a rebuff, but at length it began to dawn upon his hazy mind that he was not yet accepted. I'll have a plain answer and a kiss—a plain answer and a ki?s," he insisted, with tipsy repetition and grasping her wrists with both hands he held her stationary, the gun held loosely under his arm, swinging back and forward as he did so. "Sou don't stir from this spot till I've had my answer." A low, muffled sort of snort came like a a reply, and caused both to look up and start. The little Highland kyloe stood before them, making threatening demonstra- tions with its horns, as it had done once before to Ray. Since her encounter with it she had avoided the field where it grazed by taking a different and rather longer branch of the path, but on this occasion, in her anxiety to get quickly to the house, she had never thought of the creature. Hillhouse seemed uncertain how to act, but Rachel promptly set the example of trying to pass it, and he mechanically fol. lowed. The kyloe, however, at once capered in front- of them, with "no road this way plainly written on its mischievous face. After vainly dodging back and forward for some time Hillhouse became enrtged, Hang it, I mut shoot the brute Oh, don't, don't!" Ray entreated, but her voice was lost in the two quick reports that followed. Had those barrels been loaded the little Highlander would never have lifted hoof or horn again but although the caps exploded, there was no charge —either the too festive sportsman had omitted to put it in, or some prudent onlooker had quietly withdrawn it. Roused to real fury, the bullock now put its head down and charged in earnest at the Hon. Geoffrey, who flung his gun at it with an oatil, and fairly fled for his life without tak- ing a moment's thought for the girl to whom lie had just been professing eternal devo- tion. Catching sight of the cage round th young tree, where Ray had before taken refuge, he dashed for that shelter, but on the sloping bank his unsteady feet failed, and he fell headlong into the deep and filthy ditch below. The aggressor stood and sniffed at his prostrate form with supreme con- tempt, and then trotted quietly away to a distant corner of the meadow. In the pleasant paddocks adjoining my garden the little Highlander leads a petted and luxurious life. Time has taught him discrei ion in the use of his horns, and he will lower his shaggy head to be caressed by Ray, and receive pieces of carrot quite gently from her hand, though by my wish she exchanges these amenities with him through the bars of a gate. Hillhouse was greatty sobered by his ducking in the dirty ditch, and so subdued that Mrs Surtees presently married him to one of her black little sisters. He has got over past rebuffs and is on quite a friendly footing with us, but Way and I always notice that he looks askance at the little Highlander.
Reading Murders. I I MRS DYER'S ACCOUNT OF HEFICRIMES, I The Mystery SLirrounding "Little lkey," I A special correspondent of the Weekly Dispatch I says :-)lrs Dyer has made a further confession during the piisb week, and has described wish the most horrifying, minute, and shocking vividness the details of the many murders of which she b3 repeatedly during the week unsparingly accused herself. When Mrs Palmer found herself in custody she hardly realised the terrible position m which she stood, but once sbe discovered that she had been returned for trial as an accessory before the fact, she promptly indicted a lonpr and very strong appeal to her mother to get her out of it." In response to this appeal Mrs Dyer, address- ing her daughter as My darling Polly," floss very minutely, in a long letter, into the circum- stances attending her murdering the poor little infant christened by Granny" "Little Ikoy." She state that day following the arrival of the child at Kim Viila SHE MURDERED THE POOR INFANT I by placing round its neck the now familiar life- ending tape, and further how she, in order to stop the death cries, forced into the child's mouth one of her own pocket handkerchiefs. Graphically and shockingly she describes the wrapping up of the remains in a piece of canvas, and the adding to the parcel of the usual brick in order to keep the child at the bubtorr of the river. She then goes on to describe how she left the house and familiarly bade the neighbours good night as she made her way to the footbridge over the Clappers Weir, now known to the town of Readitiz as Mrs Dyer's cemetery. Further, she describes the consignment of the bag tj the water, and complainingly states she was obliged to wait some live minutes in order that a person on the bridge should get out of sight. It was Little llfty that was, during lifetime, so unkindly treated by Mrs Dyer. Granny," it will be remembered, stated that the prisoner at Holloway struck the baby a heavy blow upon the ear. This letter, of course, came before Colonel Milmau, the Governor of Holloway Pusou, who, at once seeing the nature of it* coutents, handed it over to the Scotland Yard officers, who have now charge of the case, and therefore Mrs Palmer, who now lies at Reading Gaol, is unacquainted with the contents of the letter. The next day Mrs Dyer again requested that she should be supplied with pen and ink, and with the remark that she would save them any further trouble," sat down and wrote a very long letter addressed to the writer. Again, Colonel Milman vetoed the posting of this communication, but from another source the writer is enabled to give the purport of ibs con cents. She tells how grieved she felt when she heard her daughter was in custody, and how she could not get a wink of sleep during the whole of that Friday night. She says, "I do not want to give them a lob of trouble, because I will tell them all about the dear little children that I have put away." WITH SICKENING MINUTENESS she goes on to describe the packing of the bag and the addition of the bricks, which she obtained from the yard of 176, Mayo-road, and the getting of it ready to take home." On the way to Reading, after she left the Palmers at Paddington Station, she undid the cord round the bag and pat the bricks the other side," so that it would not look so large." Arriving at Reading, she goes on to tell how she walked the iougest way round to the footbridge, and how, when she dropped the bag in, it made a big splash." Further on she says she cannob re- member how many sbp has put in the weir, but that she would know all mine because of the tape round the neck. She states that she never took to doing away with them like she did until the Palmers went away from her. Many other details follow, describing the doing away with the others," and the letter winds up with the wish that her daughter and son-in-law should be set at liberty, and that the Almighty would for- give her for her wickedness. The Treasury has appointed Dr. G. H. Savage, the well-known expert in mental diseases, to examine Mrs Dyer, of Reading notoriety, in view of the defence of insanity that is to be set up at her triDI.

Father isn't dead he's up stairs putting grandfather to bed 1" I A good story is told in a North Country paper of a Lancashire factory inspector's visit to a mill. The manager telephoned through the mill, and all children who were illegally employed were hidden in various out-of-the-way places. While crossing the yard the inspector happened to observe some fingers protruding from a case, and, ) on raising the lid, he saw a curly-headed lad oronchmg down. He asked him why he was there, upon which the little fellow replied, Shut th' mouth, mon, and put t'lid down DoesnJb to know th' inspector's about ?" Little Nellie, while at the seaside with her mother, was very fond of making calls upon some ladies in a neighbouring cottage, and tHe frequency with which she would bring home little presents of cards, pictures, and other things led her mother to fear that she might be in the habit of asking for them. She therefore gave the child strict orders never to ask for anything. The very next day Nellie returned from her visit laden with pretty odds and ends of various sorts, and when her mother called her and questioned her severely as to whether she had asked for them, with Conspicuous virtue she replied, "No, mother; you told me I must never ask for things, so I just took them I" Mr Labouchere. while undergoing his "little go examination at Cambridge, noticed a num- ber of dons prowling about m the hopes of catching some one cheating. So he hastily scribbled a few words upon a sheet of paper,hid it awiy under his blotter, and ostentatiously referred to it from time to time with a great parade of looking furtively round to see that nobody was looking. The trap was not long in taking effect. Argus thunderingly inquired what he had got there. Oh, nothing—at least, only a piece of paper stammered the ingenuous youth provokingly. But the examiner was inexorable. He insisted on looking under the blotter, and was rewarded by reading, in a large round hand, the words, "You may be very clever, but you can't eat coke Dr. Jephson of Leamington, celebrated in the fortio-, and fifsies," was called on one day by a lady of position.

Do you know-ahem -my position ?" Perfectly, madam," was the reply I am prescribing for an old woman with a deranged stomach."
DUEL WITH SWORDS, I NICK, Sunday.—A duel with swords was fought this morning between M. Garibaldi, editor of the Etlaireur, and M. Darkois, editor of the Tonnerre, on private property near the Pont Magnan. In the first assault Mr Dar- kois's sword entered his opponent's breast, inflicting a deep wound in the region of the heart. M. Garibaldi was conveyed to his home, and is reported to be in a serious condition. The cause of the duel was discussion following upon an exciting loctl election. -P--wer.

THE DUKE OF DEVOilSHInE78 I VISIT TO SWANSEA. The programme for the approaching visit of the Duke of Devonshire to Swansea in now about completed. His Grace will be met at the railway station by deputations of the various Unionist organisations, and he will be presented with two addresses. Then he will be escorted with bands to the Drill Hall, where a luncheon will be given to the successful and unsuccessful Unionist candidates at the last election. In the evening his Grace will address a meeting at the Albert Hall, and later on again there will be a smoking concert at the Salisbury Club, which it is hoped the Duke will attend.

It would have been a special pleasure to me to testify my esteem and regard for Dean Vaughan."

Welsh Gossip. 1 The net proceeds of the conoert given by the Treorky Male Voice party at the Queen's Hal), London, amounted to JB129 16 6d. The Rev. W. H. Sarohat, Wesleyan minister, conducted his last service id the Neath Circuit on Sunday night, when he preached at the Neath Wesleyan Chapel. In the course, of the twelve months or so that have elapsed since the last election the Mertbyr District Council has lost three of its members by death—Mr Henry Lewis, Major Bell, and Alderman Evan Lewis. Taibacb, which was built during the days of the Crimean War, bears record of that faot in itlt local street names, which include such historical terms as Constantinople, Inkerman, Scutari, Stamboul, and Gallipoli. Caerphilly is getting on—by degrees. The street lamps are now being painted for the first time since they were placed in position 30 years ago. A correspondent anxiously inquires whether the local authorities have negotiated a 30 years' loan to cover the expense ? A unique ceremony was witnessed at the New Town Hall, Pontypridd, last week, when Miss Lily Richards was invested during her pupils' concert with her cap and gown as Licentiate of the Royal Uollege of Music, the ceremony being performed by Dr. Joseph Parry. The Rev. Richard Parry, the well-known Gwalchmai, who was reported last week to be recovering from the effects of the accident which befel him when out for a walk with Hwfa Mon, has had a relapse. His medical attendants enter- tain hopes of his recovery, but the venerable bard is in a very weak state. Laleston, in the Vale of Glamorgan, is said to have been so-called after a Saracen of the name of L<tles, who escaped from a wreck on the Welsh coast. He was engaged by a number of the Normans then in Glamorgan as master builder to their castles. It is said that he was converted to Christianity and built Laleston. The seoond number of the late Ialwyn's sermons was this week issued from the Treherbert Press, and maintains in every respect the excellence of the first issue. The present day rush for Islwyn's works, in prose and poetry, indicates that at last the genius of the seraphic poet-preacher is being appreciated at its true value. The Executive Committee of the Carnarvon NatioMl Eisteddfod of 1894 have decided to write to the secretary of the National Eisteddfod Association protesting against the delay which has taken place in the publication of the prize essays, etc., and several members expressed the opinion that the association, like the House of Lords, ought to be "fmded or mended." It was suggested that an effort should be made to hold the National Eisteddfod of 1900 at Carnarvon, and the proposal was favourably received, though no resolution was passed. Mr Alfred Thomas, M.P., is not alone among his Welsh colleagues in Parliament as a composer of hymn tunes. Mr S. T. Evans, the member for Mid-Glamorgan, has gone one better, for be has composed two hymn tunes, the rendering of both of which he conducted personally at Neath the other day. The new tunes are called 1" Cefry- gwyudwn aud Maesteg." Why not have a Cymaufa Ganu at Westminster for .the Welsh members ? There's material enough, and it would help the promotion of harmony. Thera would, of course, be no lack of leaders among them. Dafydd Ionawr, the celebrated Welsh bard, died 69 years ago to-day. He was born in the parish of Towyn, Merionethshire, January 22, 1751, and was taught the rules of Welsh poetry by Ieuan Brydydd Hir, who was a curate at Towyn in 1766. David Richards, as the bard was then known, subsequently went to Ystrad- meurig School, then kept by its illustrious founder, Edward Richards, and it was there, when only 18 years of age, that ho composed his well-known "CywyddyDorau." He spent most of his life as a schoolmaster. It was at Carmar- then, where be was an assistant master at the Grammar Sohool, that he composed his "Cywydd y Drindod," of which, after immense labour, travelling through the whole of Wa'es, he was able to dispose of an edition of ;300 oopies at 5s a copy. Here is an ower true story of how the Church in Wales—in rural Wales, at all events—labours under difficulties. On a certain cold winter's Sunday morning the vicar on entering the church found his congregation to consist only of the sf-xton. After careful consideration, it was deemed inadvisable to hold a service at all, and the two State officials left the sacred building. But unfortunately at the churchyard gate they were met by a poor parishioner, whose religious instincts had proved superior to considerations of personal comfort. The parson was non-plussed for a moment, but then a bright thought struck bim. Miss Jones," said he to the shivering woman, I am anxious to do my duty by you, and am prepared to hold the usual service for your benefit. But the church is very cold this morning and—which would you prefer, the usual I servioe, or a shilling from me ?" Miss Jones chose the shilling, and vicar aud flock were equally satisfied! Dr. Perowne, Bishop of Worcester, was for 10 years vice-principal of St. David's College, Lampeter, and Mrs Perowne, in the course of an illustrated interview in the Woman at Home for May, loves to linger on the recollections of then happy days in South Wales. I married to go to Lampeter," Mrs Perowne told her interviewer. There my children were all born. It was a delightful time in many ways, and I used to take the greatest interest in the young men. From Lampeter we went to Cambridge, where the Bishop was one of the theological professors. These, too, were delightfully happy years, for, besides many friends, we had all the interests of academic life and the association with many well- known men then, too. our yearly migrations to the Canonry at Llandaff made a pleasant variety; we have all many happy reminiscences of Llan- daff, where we made valued and lifelong friends of the learned Bishop Ollivant, his wife, and daughter." Professor J. Morris Jones intends to publish his articles on the Gorsedd in book form when his attack upon that institution is com- pleted. Two or three more articles may be expected before he abandons the subject. He will then devote himself to seeing through the press; the new edition of Burdd Cwsg which he 'has undertaken to bring out. This work was commenced some time ago, but it was interrupted by the raid," as it has been called, upon the organisation of iihe bards. Messrs Jarvis and Foster, Bangor, hope to publish at an early date a collection of translations from Welsh lyrics, chiefly of the present century. The translator is the Rev. Edmund O. Jones, the vicar of Llan. idloes. Those who have had the privilegeof looking at the proof-sheets consider that Mr Jones has succeeded beyond expectation in the difficult task which he had imposed upon himself. The same firm will, in the near future, publish a collection of Welsh lyrics from the earliest times down to the present day. The editor is Mr W. Lewis Jones, Lecturer in English Literature all the University College of North Wales, Bangor. The book will be modelled upon the well-known Golden Treasury of Songs and Lyrics," edited by Professor Palgrave and published by Messrs Macmillan and Co. The want of such a collection has long been felt, and it is gratifying to find that at last it is about to be supplied by one who is in every way qualified for the work. A want which is sorely felt by Welsh readers interested in the memory of the Kymric dead is that of a good biography of Robert Owen, the Newtown Socialist. The task has been essayed by more than one writer (remarks the Manchester GuardianJ, but with very indifferent success, aud even those "lives" which have been published are by this time practically unobtainable. Mr T. E. Ellis, M.P., chief Liberal Whip, is a great admirer of the Father of British Socialism," as one of the latest and best writers on co-operation has called him, and in an address delivered before the Students' National Society at Bangor he went so far as to say that this strong, strenuous, fertile. brained Welshman could take his place proudly with Plato and Sir Thomas More among great initiators." In the course of conversation with some literary friends in Wales, Mr Ellis is reported to have once expressed the wish that he could find time to write the biography of his hero but, although he is known to have made a special study of Robert Owen's contributions to the Socialist movement, and to have accumulated some materials for the work, his political duties have so far prevented him from realising his wish. When, however, Mr Balfour manages in the intervals of leading the Tory party to lay the j Foundations of Belief," it is not altogether unreasonable to hope that Mr Ellis will in the I intervals of "whipping" the forces of Liberalism be able to find time to write the life 0': a. great and undeservedly ueglected Wel«htnar>
THE NEW WELSH KNIGHT. I It is not generally known that Dr. Isambard Owen, who is said to be about to have the honour of knighthood conferred upon him, is a Mon. mouthshire man, having been born at Chepstow in 1850, his father being at the time the chief consulting engineer of the Great Western Railway Company. It may be safely said that no man has better deserved the honour. Dr. Owen's services to the cause of Welsh education in all its various phases are too weU known to need recapitulation. It is not, perhaps, so generally known that his patriotic efforts have entailed sacrifices which few professional men, with so many calls upon them as this popular London physician, would be prepared to make. In addition to the numerous demands of a large private practice he occupies in his professional capacity the posts of physician to St. George's Hospital, dean of the Medical School, lecturer on medical jurisprudence, honorary secretary to the Metropolitan Branch of the British Medical Association, and to the International Medical Investigation Committee, He occupies the unique position of holding a seat on the Council of each of the three constituent colleges to the University, of which he is senior deputy chancellor.
HEROISM AT BARNSTAPLE. I Mr George Hancock on Saturday sacrificed his life in endeavouring to save a boy named Powe, who had got out of his depth whilst bathing in the river Taw at Barnstaple. Mr Hancock threw off coat and vest and brought Powe to the bank, a Mr Johnston pulling him out, Unhappily Mr Hancock immediately fell back into the river and disappeared. The body was recovered, but efforts at resuscitation failed, heart disease having caused death. Mr Hancock was aged 24.
During some artillery experiments at Turin on Friday one of the guns exploded, and 12 militia- men, who were working the piece at the time, were wounded.

There is not a civilised nation under the sun that has not experienced their healing virtues. GENERAL SYMPTOMS Pains in the back, loins, between the shoulders, and in the reion of the heart stomach, liver, and kidneys, constipation, wind. griping, colic, biliousness, suppression and retention of urine, pains in the thighs, palpitation, giddiness, biliousness, depression of spirits, general debility, and other symptoms too obvious to po.nt out. These Remedies do not in the least trench on the medical man's provinces, as (heir use is only recom- mended in those minor forms of these common dis- orders respectin which professional advice is seldom sought. Neither do they profess to do the impossible —to cure all the iUs that nesh is heir to.
