Discussing the death of Mr nouert Fltzroy Benham, the well-known West End surgeon, whose health broke down some time ago owing to want of rest, an eminent physician remarked yester day (6th November):— 'The modern doctor's faculties arc, without doubt, often strained to break ing point A great «urgeon, for in stance, with a series of ' delicate and dangerous operations to perform, is upon a mental 'rack' the whole time. Then take the case of the less distin guished practitioner. With many 'night-calls' (made in all weathers) and a heavy round of patients, he is In con stant danger of a physical breakdown. The successive strain upon a medical man lies in this fact. 'A heavy, brain-fagging responsi bility is always upon hltn. His mental powers need to be perpetually at their best. In dealing with a dangerous case, he realises that his patient's life is In his hands. And it is this knowledge, . coupled with frequent slee...

: CARICATURE ELECTIONS. ' ENGLISH MAJORITIES. The election of Mayor, which takes place in ' every English town, haB been grossly caricatured in many out-of-the-way corners of the coun try. At one time there was a Mayor of Garrat, in Wandsworth, who was known as ' the Parliamentary repre sentative out of doors.' There were two candidates for the honor in 1747, who went to the poll under I the names' of Squire Blowmedown I and ' Squire Gubbins. In 1761 there I .were nine candidates, and . Foote, ) who had paid nine guineas for a win dow, was there to see the fun, and afterwards used his experience in a Hayniarket farce which caught on immensely. ??; The; iwo jnost popular candidates were a . knock-kneed 4 warf, :who' ? dealt '-4n JSecond1*^^ ;'; iwjjgs; 'seaA and his' opponent, a dwarfish muffln 'seiler, known as ' Sir Harry Dims dale.'

THE DAT OF THE DEAD. £12.000 IN WREATHS. The Paris 'Dally Mall' writes on 1st November:— Paris to-day wore the aspect of a huge 'flower garden, for crowds on foot, in cabs, and in all kinds of vehicles car ried great wreaths of many-hued chrys anthemums, lilies of the valley, rosea, and other beautiful flowers. All were bound for the cemeteries to visit the tombs of departed friends and relatives, which were lavishly bedecked with floral tributes. To-morrow (Saturday) is the Day of the Dead, but as to-day (All Saints' Day) was a public holiday, the Parisians, according to their usual cus tom, proceeded in scores of thousands to the cemeteries. Probably in no other European city Is the cult of the dead carried to such a degree as in Paris, and ft was touching to see the large number of people who thought on this day of recreation of ttielr departed friends. All day long the burial-places were crowded. Ninety-two thousand people visited the worldre nowned cemetery of Pere-Lachalse. I ...
