ABSENT-MINDEDNESS. Canon Duckworth has made an addition to the Spectator's anecdotes of 'absent-miuded- liess.'

He was sur prised and distressed when the churchwardens afterwards hinted to him that his choice of a text had been a little hard upon his prede cessors. Another is from a correspondent who, sometime ago, in passing through a church yard in Lancashire, saw a number of flower wreaths on a newly-made grave. One among others had a card attached, on which was written 'With Mrs. ? deep sympathy,' but the lady had omitted to note that at the bottom in the corner were the words 'At home on Fridays,'
A STORY OF THWARTED CRIME. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 26 October 1895
A STORY OF THWARTED CRIME. One of the most remarkable stories of thwarted crime that we remember to have met with (says the Pali Mall Gazette) comes from India. A lady with her two children, who were both young, was going in her own ekka from Rannagar to a place in the centre of the Bar tract. The driver was an old servant of the family, and was thought to be trustworthy. For this reason the lady did not think it neces sary to leave her jewellery behind her. At a lonely part of the road the trustworthy ser vant stopped and ordered his mistress to pass gewgaws along. She did so — not unnaturally — and then the man proceeded to bind her, preparatory to killing her. At her request he agreed to kill the infants after he had dispatched their mother. He lifted his axe to strike the blow, but the head flew off and disappeared in the brushwood some yards away. By this time the lady was unconscious. .When she came to she found her husband leaning over, her and undoing her fastenings. He expl...

SHOCKING DEATH OF AN ARCH DUKE. It must be a comforting reflection to the man who has to bring up a family on a weekly wage that big incomes and high social position do not necessarily mean greatly enhanced com fort. Take the matter of surgical attendance, illustrated by the shocking experience of the young Archduke Ladislaus, whose death is re ported (remarks the Westminster Gazette of September 10).
