A .woman came to Guy's Hospi tal in a deplorable state.of health, apparently dying- She was thin, could take no food, and was covered with open sores. She .was, moreover, not a cheerful invalid, but was terribly de pressed. Several doctors had failed to diagnose her case, but Dr Lane decided that the trouble lay in her intestines. He oper ated, and found that part of her colon, (some^me^ Jsnotwn as the ox-bow)-was in atoacVway, so he cut it clean away and joined up the endB.

Louis Latour touched a sub ject of peculiar Interest to English women yesterday, when, In her French lecture at the Grafton Galleries, sho dealt with the death of Henrietta of England, the Duchess of Orleans (say3 the "Westminster Gazette" of Novem ber 28). If was the most brilliant hour of her llfo when Louis XIV. sent her to Eng land as his ambassador to arrango the alliance. Sho was never forgiven for this by the Duke, her husband, and when sho returned to Franco on June 21, 1670, not a single member of his family paid her the slightest attention. 'Che Duchess was deeply chagrined, imd she felt the affair much moro deep ly when her husband surprised her at Versailles when she was talking poli tics with the King, and made a violent scene.

BEN JONSON AND JONATHAN WILD [Newspaper Article] — Clunes Guardian and Gazette — 27 February 1914

BEX JONSON' AND JONATHAN WILD An interesting feature in connection with the new Middlesex Guildhall at Westminster, opened last December, by Prince Arthur of Connaught, is that some valuable county records were brought back into safe keeping in the new building. One of these tells thr strange story of how Ben Jonson jus' managed to escape the capital penalty Apparently in 1589 lio fought a duel with a fellow-actor named Spencer and killed him. He escaped the gallows, but underwent a brief term of impri sonment, in the course of which he adopted the Catholic faith "on trust, but abjured it 12 years later. There are also many references in the records to Jonathan Wild. There's a great art in accepting tilings as they are, and making tlio best of theril. A pleasant way of taking un pleasant tilings -will carry one success fully over many a hard place.
