Liist at the Assize Courts, Kingaton-on-Ihnmes, Mr. Walter Schroder held nn inquiry into the circumstances attending the death of Lily Cheoaeman, aged 23 years, recently employed as a barmaid at tho Southampton Hohil, Surbiton, whose body was found in the Thame on Friday last, Mr.

H.Godboid watched the case on behalf of Messrs. Spiers and Pond, the girl's employers, and Suporintendont Sainos and Doteotivo-Inspector Pugsloy represented the police. The case is a very peculiar one, the deceased's rintta and new black dress being missing from her body. In opening the inquiry, the Coroner said that as the deceased's friends suspected foul play, he proposed on this occasion only taking a certain amount of evidence in order that the body might be buried, and then adjourn. Mr.

Honry Cheeseman, manager to Messrs. Spiers and Pond at the Royal Aquarium, Westminster, identified the body of the deceased as that of hia daughter, and said she had been in hor situation about five years. He saw her on Thursday week she seemed qnits well She was of a very cheerful disposition, undhad never expressed herself as being tired of her life. Supposing thU to be an act of smcide, he could act assign any cause for it. Miss Ellen Grubb, a barmaid at the Southampton Hotel, said she had been there six months, and was very friendly with the deceased.

On Thursday last Miss Cheesemau did her duty as usual, but at 11.30 p.m. she looked very tired, and asked witness to relieve her, which she did. Deceased did not say where she was going, except that she thought she would go to bed. At 1.30 witness went to her room to give her the keys. The room was in darkaess, the window was open, and deceased was not there.

Witness searched for tier, but without Buccess. None of deceased's things had been interfered with. Deceased, who had bad a very bad cold for a week, had not been depressed, but appeared contented and happy. She had never referred to a love affair, but had jocularly remarked that she was going to be married about Christmas time. She did not say to whom, and witness did not ask her.

Deceased alwayB seemed bright. She wore a ruby and diamond ring, another with a blue stone and a diamond, and a plain gold one, also a bugle brooch and cuff links. Witness balieved she was wearing them on Thursday. When she left the bar she was wearing a black skirt, which she bad worn only twice before, and an alpaca bodice. Joseph Hullett, a gardener to the Kingston Corporation, said he was walking along the Parade near the Catholic Chapel in Portsmouth -road on Friday morning, when he saw tbe body of tho deceased Boating face downwards in the Thames.

She was ia about 4 feet of water, and was caught in the weeds. The Coroner here adjourned the inquiry to allow the police to complete their investigation. AN EAST-END FEUD. DYSPEPSIA. HOW TO REMOVE ITS MANY EVIL SYMPTOMS.

Properly used the stomach is a friend. Atrased it is an enemy. The digestive powers, although adaptable, are constitutionally limited. If, then, you live, "not vrisely, but too well," or est food that disagrees with you, yoa necessarily suffer, unless, you counteract the evil by proper treatment If you overload tbe stomach, or are too fond of dainties, made disb.es, all the infetthu! organs suffer. The gastric juices that would suffice to digest a moderate quantity of food must necessarily fail to convert a greater supply.

Undigested food ferments aud breeds poisonous gases. Food is eaten that the blood may take up essential nutritive principles from it when digested. It is, therefore, not what we eat but what we digest that is essential. If you ate food, and had no digestion at all, you would starve, just the same as if you ate nothing at alL Digestion, therefore, is a vital principle, aad not only a mechanical operation. When the system is overloaded, plethoric, and adipose, indigestion is set up, the functions of the liver are deranged, constipation ensues, and uric acid is generated in excess.

When uric acid is present in the system, gout, rheumatism, and kidney disorders are set up, and a state of Uricacidamia ensues, always provocative of disease. The best treatment for remedying this state of things has hitherto been found in waters of certain Continental mineral-wafer springs, They contain certain medicinal salts is solution. But very few people can afford time and money to visit and spend several weeks at a Coiria-nental health resort. Hotel expenses are high, travelling is expensive, and, proverbially Eras is money."

CONSTABLE AND CUSTOMERS. At Kastbourne Polica-coutt yeatorday, before Mr. Arthur Mayhowo and Colonel Fitzgerald, Alfred John Phillips, of 3, Bank Buildings, restaurant keeper, pleaded guilty to keeping bis premises as a pkco of resort for betting, aud Captaiu P. H. Vatea, of Box-hill, pleaded guilty to using tho shop for betting on tho 2nd instant.

The Town Clerk prosecuted un behalf of the Watch Committee; and Mr. Lawson Lewis defended. Inspector Stirling said he and other police officers raided the premises about two o'clock on Saturday. Captain Yates was making a bet on a horse running at Liugfield races, and a book was seized containing eutries of five thousand betting transactions. Phillips' clients wore principally working people, including cabmou, raojhauies.

luggage porters, and railway servants. In cross-examination witness admitted that a police- constable in uniform was left in charge oi the premises after the defendants were arrested, and also that tho constable received bet9 from customers over tho counter. Witness added, amid laughter, ha did not know whether the conatabie was going to be charged with a similar offence. The Chairman flaed rhillips 25i. aad costs and Yates 51.

PAKIS, Monday Night The Prii du Conseil Municipal, the new race of 100,008 francs, which was founded a few years ago by the Jockey Club, and named after the iVTanicipalFty of Paris, to whom the Longchainps Course belongs, was run for yesterday afternoon. Itsearcelyexoited so much interest as usual, for nearly alT'the best Freuah horses are out of form. At the same time the presence of tbe fresh four-year-old Winkfield's Pride gave an international flavour to the contest There were iit'teen competitors for the big race of whom Winkfield's Pritle on the strength of his many victories Eugland was made favourite, though the annouce-meut of his salo to a German sportsman, just before the start, did not operate in his favour.

The best of the French horses were supposed to be M. de St. Alary's Omnium who had won the race in the two previous years, each time carrying the full penalty, M. Abeille's Chumpaubert who had also done great things, and 8f. Edmond Blanc's Masque II.

who had won every race he had run for, except one, among his victories being the Ascot Stakes this summer. He, like Winkfield's Pride, had changed hands just before 'the race, M. Edmond Blanc having bought him for a high price, and it was thought that if WinkSeld's Pride was beaten it "would ba bv this colt. But all connected with the Irish four-year-old were extremely confident, and with Watts in the saddle it was difficult to get more than even money about him in tbe ring, at tbe pari mutuel, owing to the prejudice against foreign horses among the small speculators, he yielded a rather better return. The start for the race was not long delayed, and the most notable feature was the bad start obtained by Omnium who was soon several lengths behind, while the colours of "Edmond Blanc were conspicuous in the van.

But Watts always held a good place with Winkfield's Pride, and it may ba said indeed that he had won his race half a mile from home, as he brought the Irish horse to the front at the last turn, and soon hell such a lead that he was able to turn his head round and see where the others were, going on at his leisure. He won by fom lengths. Masque who had run well up to a certain point, was eased when the jockey saw that pursuit was vain. The second and third places were therefore filled by two outsiders, one of whom, M. Henri Say's Vidame, brought in the fabulous odds of 58 to 1 "for a place, that is to say, every ten francs invested yielded a return of 590.

There was very little cheering at the result, as the French public never appreciate the victory of a foreign horse, though they can afford to be generous, as no English candidate has won the Grand Prix for many years. ALLEGED POISONOUS TONIC. NERYE WHISKY En UNSUSPECTED PLACES. At Bow-street Police-court yesterday, before Mr. Lushingcon, Joseph Wallace, homoeopathic practitioner, of Albany-terrace, Hegent's Park, appeared to four summonses charging hita with selling a poisonous drug to a person not known to him, without inquiry, without labelling the article so sold as a poison or as alcohol, without entering the fact of such sale in a book.

M. Bodkin supported the summons on behalf of the Treasury Sir. Schultess Yonng defended. Mr. Bodkin said that this prosecution, like that undertaken against the defendant in February last, was taken under the Pharmacy Act, 1878, Sec.

17. In Jane of this year a man named John Partridge went to the defendant's house and asked for a bottle of Wallace's Specific No. 1. He was supplied with a bottle, now produced. Though he wa3 a stranger to the woman who served him, his name was not asked, no entry wa3 made in a book, and there was no label affixed to the bottle to show thit the contents were poisonous.

The bottle was taken to Dr.tLuff, one the analysts to the Home Office, who found that in one ounce of the liquid there was i-23rd of a grain of aconitine, the mo3t pptverful alkaloid, poison known, and the active principle of aconite. Boswell, Division, stated that in November last he had an interview with the defendant at his house for the purpose of the previous proceedings, and in August last he called at his house again, and sealed ten bottles of the specific Mrs. Wallace then said, in the though technically the mixture was a poison, practically it was a nerve tonic. Cross-examined Whilst he was sealing these bottles the defendant swallowed a whole botUeful of the mixture, apparently with no evil effect. j8e-examined The defendant handed him a printed specification of the contents of the "bottle, telling him that he had patented the mixture.

He said that there was something which counteracted the effects of the poison, and made use of several long names, which witness could not recollect. Witness noticed that whisky was one of the ingredients, and remarked that that was the only one that he knew anything about. (Loud laughter.) The defendant said that that was the oniy bad thing in the mixture. Dr. Arthur P.

Luff, official analyst to the Home Office, said that he had analysed the contents of the bottle purchased by Partridge. He found that in the fluid ounce of liquid that the bottle contained there was 1-23 of a grain of aconitdne. Cross-examined There was no accurate chemical test for aconitine known. The only tests were physiological. Mr.

Young said that his defence would he a direct denial that the contents of this bottle were poisonous. Sir. Wallace had, as he believed, discovered a methqd of neutralising the poisonous properties of aconitine. Persons would be called who had taken a whole bottle-ful or more at one dose without ill effects, and, in addition, an analyst of as high a reputation as Dr. Luff Dr.

Winter Blyth as well as Dr. Cuppock, an analyst from the North of England, would be called to say that they had prepared this mixture from the defendant's specification, and had found that an inert and entirely harmless compound was the result. The case was adjourned. COURT OF BANKRUPTCY. Oer.

Sir George Lewis reminded the magistrate that the prisoner, in his affidavit, swore that this money was expended in travelling between London, Paris, and New York, and added that he intended to prefer a charge of peijury against the prisoner. Another of the notes was, according to the prisoner's expressiou, "melted'- (i.e., cashed) by Mr. A.

H. Walter, a solicitor, for the prisoner's benefit. A fifth note was said to have been paid by the prisoner to.

That was a large house.and the prisoner kept six indoor servants and three outdoor.

Witness had frequently changed bank notes for the prisoner. The note produced was one he so changed. Some further formal evidence having been given to the prisoner's payments while at Rye, the hearing was again adjourned, and the prisoner was remanded. THE POLICE COURTS. MARY JANE'S PITIFUL STORY.

They crossed over to a gentleman's residence and pulled down the palings, and when-he (witness) crossed over and asked the prisoner what he was doing, the latter said, I will show you," and they at once closed and fell. The prisoner ticked him, and the other lads got round and assailed him with sticks and stones. He then priced out his staff, and aimed blow at the prisoner's arm, but the truncheon fell on his head. The prisoner's friends got him away and took him to hospital, and he was subsequently arrested and charged.

The prisoner denied taking part in the alleged disorder. He was walking in the rear of the other lads when the constable came up and attacked him with his truncheon. The constable said he could call private witnesses in support of his case, but the gentlemen were not now present. Tho prisoner's father, a respectable-looking man, said the lad was well behaved. On Sunday night ths lad did not come home at his uscal time, but presently he was brought home by two other lads, with bis collar and front and clothing generally sal urated with blood.

He told bira the same story that he had now told the magistrate. Inspector Ford asked the magistrate to remand the case for the attendance of the gentleman whoso fence had been broken down but Mr. Bros, without acceding to this, told the prisoner that there had been nothing short of a riot, and he would have to be taught a sharp lesson 21 days' bard labour.

Suddenly he heard a thud, and turning saw a man's body lying under one of the van wheels. The prisoner continuing to drive on, witness shouted to him to stop and blew his whistle.

There witness jumped out of his cab and managed to seize the van horsa's head.

At the time of the accident the van was moving at the rate of about eight miles an hour. The prisoner was remanded, Subsequent inquiries elicited that the man who was run over was a coalheaver of the name of Keegs. He wa3 taken to the UniTersity Hospital, but died on the way.

INCREASE OF DRUNKENNESS. For some time past the number of prisoners charged at Marylebone Police Court on Monday mornings has been steadily increasing, until at last it has called forth magisterial comment. Mr. Plowden, upon taking his seat on the bench vesterdav. said Hh hart Tiofnro him list of 71 cases, almost all for beinfir drunk and dis orderly.

He took this to mean that th inflicted had hitherto been insufficient. The fines and penalties for drunkenness would, therefore, have to be increasea. ine present state ot things was most disgraceful. Instead of the usual half a crown nr on a fttr the penalties imposed were in most cases 10a. or sovea nays.

Eutnow's oved HjTT SUGGESTED USE FOR A FIRE ENGINE. Yesterday, Mr, Wynne B. Baxter, coroaer, held an inquiry at the London Hospital concerning the death of George Sims, aged 20 years, a biscuit baker, late of 140, Pennington street, St. George's, East. Mary Ann Lyons, the wife of a dock labourer, stated that deceased was her brother and lived with her.

On the 17th nit. he complained of a pain in the ear, and on the 22nd admitted to the hospital, where he died on Wednesday last. About two years ago the deceased and witness's husband were quarrelhug. and the de-ceasad was struck a blow on the head with the leg of an iron bedstead by a man named Patrick Brown. Of course the deceased struck back, but ultimately witness's husband and tha deceased were arrested, the latter receiving a sentence of six weeks' hard labour.

Mary Ann Casey, of 121, St. George's-stieet, stated that about two years ago she wa3 sitting on a doorstep when Mr. Lyons came up and struck her and Brown, The latter followed Lyons, and they had a tussle together. Sirs. Lyons tackled witness and tore her body off," and Lyons beat her face to a mummy, -The Coroner It Beems to have been quite a pleasant evening, Witness It was.

It waa quite a treat. Witness added that at midnight her daughter was attacked by the deceased with a chopper. She seized the weapon, and Sims was subsequently locked up. Witness's daughter was taken to the London Hospital. Patrick Brown, a dock labourer, of 121, St George's-street, stated tbat the deceased was his first cousin.

Witness was struck by Lyons, whom he followed into Pennington-street. The Coroner And then there were bedposts and choppers flying about. It was altogether a very lively night. Witness It was. The Coroner Of course you didn't hit the deceased Witness No.

The Coroner Well, I don't think we need go very far into that matter, as it happened tWo years ago. Witness Well, Mrs. Lyons said she would have me for it before twelve months was np. And now she puts a little irl on to me to call me names in order that I might strike her so that she can get me arrested. I want to know what I can do so as to have my own back with them.

The Coroner I should think yon might all subscribe to a fire engine and pump on one another. That might cool you all down a little. (Laughter.) Dr. Arthur P. Gibbons stated that the deceased was admitted suffering from blood poisoning due to disease of the middle ear, which ended in death.

Witness did not think tho injury two years ago had anything to do with the death. The jury retornei a verdict of Natural death." THE REGISTRATION COURTS. VOTERS WHO CAMP OUT. Mr. M.J.

Blake, at the Town Hall, Shorediioh, yesterday, continued the revision of the Shoreditch electoral lists, dealing with the Hoxton Division of the boronsh. Mr. Renwick Seaser and Mr. Davs armeared for the Liberals. The Conservatives objected to several persons on me ground mat they were not at the address given on the iota July.

It appeared that the whole street had been condemnsd Ly the sanitary authorities, and the houses of the claimants were ordered to he pulled down and rebuilt. The occupants were turned out of the houses during tha renovation, many of them camping ont in the streets, but as soon as the places were rendered fit for habitation ths people were allowed to re-enter The Barrister held that this temporary break in the occupation did not disqualify, and disallowed objection. LIBERAL GAINS AT EALING. Mr. E.

Chitty, the Revising Barrister, having completed the revision of the voters' lists in the Ealing Division, the following official figures of party gains have "been arrived at. Acton Liberal claims sustained 126, Conservative claims sustained 90, Liheral objection sustained 156, Conservative objections sustained 68, net Liberal gain 124 Chiswick Liberal claims sustained 152, Conservative claims sustained 77, Liberal objections sustained 83, Conservative objections sustained 5, Liberal gain 163 Ealing Liberal claims sustained 92, Conservative claims sustained 146, Liberal objections sustained 77, Conservatiye objections sustained 7, net Liberal gain 16. Other parishes in the division Liberal claims sustained 14, Conservative claims sustained 79, Liberal objections sustained 60, Conservative objections sustained 7, Conservative gain 12. Net result on revision Liberal claims sustained 384, Conservative claims sristained 381, Liberal objections sustained 376, Conservative objections sustained 87, Liberal gain 282 votes.

SHOT ON BOARD SHIP. An inquest was opened by the Dover coroner on the body of Francois Ravallee, a French fireman on board the eteamer Heighington, of West Hartlepool, who was fatally shot by a lad named William Sullivan, aged 15, belongingto South Shields. A German fireman named Herman Kunz stated Sullivan asked Ravallee for some beer. He was told that he had none. Sullivan then asked far Borne cigarette papers, and as Ravallee was taking these from his waistcoat pocket, Sullivan fired and fatally wounded him.

Sullivan and the Frenchman had always been on good terms. The lad expressed bis wish to give evidence, but his father asked that a solicitor should be consulted before any statement was mads by tbe lad. The coroner heard the lad's statement, so far as his denial that the shearing was unintentional, and then decided to adjourn the inquest for a week, with the object of securing the appearance of the captain of the ship. THE THAMES AS A HIGHWAY. A crowded meeting convened by the local Vestry was held last night at Rotherhithe Town Hall, to advocate the freedom of tie piers from tolls, and the advisability of a better steamboat service being provided.

Mr. F. T. Talbot presided, and a letter was read from Sir Edward Clarke expressing his sympathy with the movement, and stating that it was painful to notice how little the great highway of the Thames was used. Mr.

Payne, L.C.C., moved That this meeting is of opinion thai there would be great public benefit conferred upon the metropolis generally, aud upon the riverside, by the freeing of the piers from all tolls, and urges upon the London Comity Council the necessity of taking the necessary steps to obtain that object as speedily as possible." Mr. T. H. Idris, J.P., chairman of the Rivera Committee of the London County Council, in seconding the motion, said their msia object was to restore to the Thames its ancient position of being the great highway of London, and the possession of the piers was the key to the question. Mr.

C. J. Darling, Q.CfjM.P,, supported tho resolution, and said it was impossible to read an old book or look at an old print without realising bow great was the difference between the river as a highway now and then. The policy of freeing the bridges and streets should be extended to the piers. The disuse of the Thames wa3 a positive discredit to the people of London.

The motion was carried with loud acclamation. RAILWAY ACCIDENT AT RAMSGATE. An accident ocenrred last evening at the London, Chatham, and Dover railway station at Ramsgate. The engine which brought the Granville express from London was being ttirned on the table at the estern end of tha station when, from some unexplained cause, it suddenly ran back, knocking a huge hole in the substantial wall and driving heavy masses of brick and ironwork into tbe public roadway. Fortunately thara were few persons near at the time, and no injuries are reported.

A breakdown gang was summoned to clear away the debris, but the traffic was considerably disorganised for the rest of tbe evening. A fatal accident occurred under somewhat similar circumstances fuur years ago, a train and several coaches ran through the wall, ploughing theic way for some distance across the roadway. As a result -j th'e. Boajd of Trade inquiry which wis held all trairii entering Ramsgate station have since been brought to a standstill juat before "emerging from the tunnel. The news that another accident had occurred caused much exoitement in the town, and largo crowds flocked to the scene.

The LANCET (March, 1891) saym "The medicinal virtues of the well-known waters of Carlsbad depend on the presence of mineral salts. The water is accordingly reputed to ba useful in rheumatism, gout, and kidney disorders. Eutnow's Carlsbad Powder is stated to contain, amongst other ingredients, the active principle of the Sprudel salt obtained direct from the mineral water. However this may be, our analysis confirmed the presence of the chief constitusnts referred to. The Powder is beautifully clean, and white, and is evidently prepared with care, while the taste of tho effervescing solution is by no means disagreeable." Tha BRITISH MEDICAL JOURNAL (Sept.

10, 1892) says: "Messrs. Kntnow and Co. showed an improved Effervescent Carlsbad Powder, neeidedly more palatable than the ordinary Carlsbad Powder evaporated at the springs, of which it reproduces the therapeutic effeets, while effectually covering the nauseous taste and objectionable bitter flavour of sulphate of soda. It is gentle, effervescent, and is a very efficient aad agreeable aperient" i From Dr. BHACHET, at the Baits oS Aix-les-Bains "Aix-Ies-Bains, Sept.

I consider Kntnow's Improved Effervescent Carlsbad Powder a preparation indispensable to persons travailing." She MEDICAL TIMES and HOSPITAL GAZETTE: Kutnow and Co. exhibited an improved Effervescent Carlsbad Powder, which is manufactured from the genuine Sprudel salt from the Carlsbad Springs, the unpleasant taste of which is very effectually disguised, whilst its aperient action is not impaired. It is a most palatable and very efficient preparation, of great therapeutic value, especially in hepatic and stomachic derangements." Th6 is very strongly recommended," says Laud and Water," by many acknowledged medical authorf.

We are informed that Kntnow's Improved Effervescent Carlsbad Powder has been prescribed for HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS THE PHINCE OP WALES and other members of the Boyal Family which affords an indication of tha opinion of the remedy entertained by the medical profession. We have seen a letter from the dispenser of the City of London Hospital for Diseases of the Chest, requesting further supplies of KuWs Improrea Effervescent Carlsbad Powder, which had been used in the wards with Having also seen autograph letters from 'the late Sir MoreU Mackenzie to brother physicians of the highest standing, in which Messrs.
