SETTING THE SHOW ON FIRE. Like Cures Like. An ambitious little boy ot erenciora namisa Wiiliam Cole, 10 years of age, had early given np »U hope of setting the Thames on fire, but resolved to imitate Noro on a small scale by stftrt-iiig a conflagration in the home of the cele- brated two Ktns. Ho and two or three others like unto himself went out for a walk, and, as is ou-Umiaiy among the rising generation there, they lighted cigarettes and trudged gaily along. Cole however, is rather short-winded, and he soon allowed his weed to go out. With a borrowed match he relighted ib, and then applied the remainder of the flaming lucifer to the hedge by the roadway, remarking to his friends. We'll sot the show on fire and have some fut). The flames were soon extinguished by a con .table, and the fun took place at the Brentford Petty Sessions yesterday morning, where Cole appeared to answer for his misdeeds. The magistrates adopted the principle which underlies the homoeopathic course of treatment ""like by the like is cured and after receiving six strokes with the birch the youth became Oouvinced that more cold water would be Required to restore a certain part of his corpus to ■to normal temperature than was necessary to extinguish the burning hedge.
