rHere and There. Yesterday, the condition of Mr Du Maurier was unchanged. Sir Julian Pauncefote, British Ambassador to the United States. paid a visit to the Colonial Office yesterday afternoon. Mr Goschen, First Lord of the Admiralty, crossed from Calais to Dover yesterday evening and proceeded by the mail train to London. Her Majesty's cruiser, Melpomene, which left Portsmouth on Tuesday with relief crews for the Cape, after putting back on Friday through stress of weather, again returned to harbour yesterday to make good defects developed in her machinery. The dead body of a well-dressed man was found last night under a hedge at Bemzeat, North- amptonshire. Nothing to lead to identification was found on the corpse, which bore no marks of violence. The man was about 60 years of age. At Heywood, Lancashire, last evening, several ohildren were playing on a sandhill, when part of it slipped, and two sisters named Howarth were buried beneath the fall. One of them, aged seven, was killed, and the other badly injured. Three more fires, making 10 in 10 days, broke out on Tuesday night at Farthingpe, Northamp. tonshire, and two ricks and a hovel were burned to the ground. The neighbourhood is in a state of panic. Two brothers named Tew have been. arrested, and other arrests are regarded as probable. Inquest on Mr Fred Barnard, the well-known artist, who was burnt to death at Wimbledon on Sunday, was held yesterday. Mrs Alice Barnard, the widow, said deceased suffered from sleepless. ness, and bad been in the habit of taking drugs to procure sleep. He often smoked in bed. The jury found that death was due to Asphyxia and burning.
