ANOTHER TRUNK MYSTERY. REMAINS IN A TIN BOX. DISCOVERY IN AN EMPTY HOUSE. A mystery of a tin trunk comes ' from North Wales. In an uninhabited house in Oak street, .Llangollen, on May 23rd, Police-sergent Wysc, of the Denbigh shire Constabulary, discovered con cealed a tin trunk which aroused his suspicions. When opened it was found to contain a hard substance enveloped in sheets. j Dr Drinkwater, the surgeon to Lhe force, was hastily summoned, and upon making an examination with a colleague, he pronounced the con tents of the trunk to be decomposed human remains. It is thought that they must have been placed in the box some years ago. For some time the house in which the remains were found has presented a dreary and desolate appearance; and has been unt.Gnn.nhDd.— "Dailv Mail."

THE MYSTERY OF A RING. About 1800 a workman named Ro bert Wyatt found, in l.lic mound on which Fotheringhay Castle stood, a gold riny with an inscription upon it, "Henry. Uarnley, .1005." It was believed 'to be the ring which Mary wore at her death 011 the scaffold, ,nnd had presumably dropped from her linger and got swept 11 way with the sawdust on the scaffold. * Miss Strickland tells the story, and, it is thought gave an engraving of the ring in an edition of her work (?

"We changed our uniform at my j mother's, five miles down the Prutli road,; and thought we had got clear away. But , Just as We were leaving the house throe moun.ted military police galloped down the road. We crouched in a ditch, and then cramped with long waiting, made . off across the field obliquely towards the | river.

SKELETONS UNEARTHED. BENEATH AN INFIRMARY. Ghastly discoveries have been made at ■ the cutting of the foundations in con nection with the Glasgow Royal Infir mary reconstruction scheme. Hundred* : of dead bodies have been found in the ground adjacent to the present insti- , , tutlon. j It appears that during the cholera epi- j ; demic in Glasgow about sixty years ago pits were dug at this place, and cartloads l of bodies were thrown in daily. The pits j were eventually covered up and practi- j cally forgotten, although a famous sur- ' geon of the Royal Infirmary once sought ' to point out that the presence of the j bodies, many of which still lie beneath ■ the buildings of the old infirmary itself, was a menace to the health of the pa tients. , I The bodies have been found in great. heaps. It is said that in one heap alone ! there were the remains of sixty persons. | The horror of the sights has worked up ' on the nerves of the laborers employed. Several have refused to work, and sp...
