SEQUEL TO PRISON DBAHA. POLICE PREFECT DISMISSED. From Semlin, a town on the Ser vian border, a correspondent of the London ' Daily Mail' wrote on 2nd October :— | The Servian Government, accord- | ing to the ' Stampa,' has been forced to take action by the popular indignation over the murder in their cell at Belgrade of the brothers Novakovics. The elder brother, ' Milan, as ex-staff captain, had been persecuted by the regicides ever since he attacked them in his journal. Im- ' prisoned on a trumpery charge, he and his brother were shot on Sun day morning, but it was given out that they had committed suicide. { Although the Minister, on the In terior affirms that he gave orders that, the men were not to be killed, it is generally believed that they were shot at the instance of the Prefect of Police, Tserovics.

TRANSATLANTIC TELEGRAPHY. HISTORY OF CABLES AND | WIRELESS. ! Now that wireless telegraphy is an assured success, It is interesting to review the various stages in the his tory of Transatlantic cable tele graphy, and the Transatlantic wire less telegraphy. The first cable across the Atlantic was completed in 1858. It was then generally thought that the problem of Transatlantic cable telegraphy had been solved.

He shall tell me all bis troubles and confide In me things that he mfghtn't perhaps care to talk over with his wife. And J am quite sure,' concludes Alicia, triumphantly, 'that so many marriages are a failure simply because the mother in-law is unsympathetic' 'What about your own?' I queried. It was spiteful, but justifiable. 'Oh, Jack's mother!' said Alicia, rather Indignantly. ...

GIRL STRANGLED. BODY FOUND IN DITCH AND LOVER CONFESSES TO MURDER. FUNERAL OF THE VICTIM. The dead body of Annie Elizabeth Halnes, the eighteen-year-old servant of a Hlnckley clergyman, was found in a deep ditch near Croft on Monday after noon, 7th October. The body bore no marks of ill-usage, and for a time both the police and a doctor were unable, on a superficial examination, to find anything to ac count for her death. Some articles found near the spot, however, led to the arrest of a young man who had been keeping company with the girl. First were found the girl's parcels, basket, and bunch of flowers, and two hundred yards away a man's collar, a detachable front, and a pair of broken braces. The police were unable to find any traces of a struggle having: token place, and, beyond a few Insignificant scratches on the girl's neck, her body bears no marks of violence. On the Tuesday afternoon the police arrested at Rugby a young collier, named Archie Page, who confessed to strangli...

THE RAILWAY CURVE. ITS EXTREME DANGER. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 1 January 1908

THE RAILWAY CURVE TKEXTREME DANGER. Mr G. A. Sekotf, editor of the 'RailT way Magazine,' writes in the Ixmdon 'Daily Mail' of 17th October:— In a little over fifteen months the public has been shocked by three ter rible and Inexplicable railway disasters, all containing many points of similarity, and apparently resulting from the same unknown cause. The awful disaster In the early hours of Tuesday morning at Shrewsbury, when a train travelling at an unduly high rate of speed was in consequence derailed with alarmingly fatal results, is In Its nature and consequences almost exactly similar to the accidents at Salis bury and Grantham of last year. The mystery surrounding the cause of the Shrewsbury derailment bears a close similarity to the latter disaster. In neither of the former catastrophes did the Board of Trade inquiry definitely discover the reason for the ill-fated trains travelling at an abnormal speed. At Salisbury, however, it was most probably an error of judgment on the p...
