MR. A. J. PULLEINE. [Newspaper Article] — Chronicle — 9 November 1895

MR. A. J. PULLEINE, At the rooms of the Society of Yorkshire men on Thursday week there was a large gathering of Yorkshire folk to bid farewell to Mr. A. J. Pulleine, who having accepted an appointment in South Africa is in consequence severing his connection with the society. Mr. Pulleine as secretary of the society has rendered valuable service and his loss will be keenly felt, for it is largely owing to the enthusiasm displayed by him that the body is in its present vigorous and flourishing condi tion. Mr. R. G. Holwell, one of the vice presidents, occupied the chair, and referred in appropriate terms to Mr. Pulleine's de- parture from the colony. Several members also bore testimony to the late secretary's worth aud the affectionate regard in which he was held by the members generally. On the motion of Mr. E. Drydek, seconded by Mr. Pawson, the following resolution was unani- mously carried : — 'That in recognition of the valuable services rendered to the Yorkshire Society by Mr....

WANTED, A SHERLOCK HOLMES. DR. BYNOE'S CONVICTION. [From our Special Correspondent.! London. October 4. 1895. Sir Mathew White Ridley, the Home Secretary, is an untried man for so important a post, and it may not be taken as altogether in his favor that it can be said 'All men speak well of him.' Our best Home Secre taries — those who have filled the posts with honor to themselves and the Governments which brought them into power — have been men with many enemies. Sir Mathew, however, is at utuu'ucaucu uuxvu i^/uuiii juiauj uuu j.ixjs actions as Supreme Judge of Appeal in criminal cases, we may rest assured, will be guided by evidence, not sentiment.

LITERARY AND THEATRICAL. [From our Special Correspondent] London, October 4. 1895.

A GIDDY LIFE. EXPERIENCES OF A STEEPLE JACK. [From our Special Correspondent.] London, October 4, 1895. There is a fascinating interview in the Eng lish Illustrated Magazine for October, the victim having been for five and thirty years a steeple-jack. To such a man the dangers of his trade have become a sort of second nature to him, and he thinks no more of scaling a chimney 200 ft. high than of 'going upstairs Strange ae it may seem, steeple-jacks are vefy rarely killed nowadays— that is, when they. keep.

LONDON TABLE TALK. [From our Special Correspondent.! London. October 5. 1895. Like the long and dreary frost of February and March the St. Martin's summer of 1895 has surpassed all records within the last 25 years. One little thought when spring came again after that nightmare winter that it would ever be possible to have too much sun shine. Yet last week and up to Tuesday in this people were complaining bitterly of the unseasonable heat. It was delightful in August and tolerable up to mid-September ; but after that tradesfolk alleged it interfered badly with business. Ladies wouldn't shop with the ther mometer at 86° in the shade, nor buy winter apparel wuust perspiration poured down their backs. However on Wednesday, almost in the 'twinkling of an eye,' the weather changed, a furious equinoctial gale wrought havoc on our coasts and drove belated holidaymakers back to town, and the temperature dropped suddenly to 55°. During the last quarter of a century the only September com para...
