The Brentford magistrates on Thursday fined a milkseller of Chiswick £2 and sosts for adulteration. Something was added to improve the colour of the fluid, and a witness said that that was a common practice in the trade. Mr. Brazir. a well-known cattle dealer, while watching a jumping competition at Bucking- ham Agricultural Show on Thursday had his pocket book stolen containing cheques, notes, and gold, representing £400. There is no trace of the thief. PATHETIC DISASTER NEAR ORKNEY. — On Friday morning information was received in Kirkwall of a sad boating accident at Fair Isle, which lifts midway between Orkney and Shet- land. On Thursday morning, the weather being fine, a number of boats or skiffs pro- ceeded to some vessels which were seen passing for the purpose of bartering hosiery, &c. Shortly after the wind sprang up from the eastward. All the boats returned on Thursday night except two. During the night a watch was kept, and early yesterday morning, when one of -them was descried, a boat was manned, and at great risk towed her to the land, but it was found that of seven men forming the crew four had died from exposure. The other boat, with four of a crew, has not turned up, and is given up for lost. The eight men have left four widows, twenty-six children, and two aged mothers. MOTOR WAGONS FOR HOUSE REFUSE. — We believe that a sub-committee of the Chester Town Council have been considering the advisability of making some alteration in the system of collecting house refuse. At present the horses and carts used for this work are hired, and it is a question if a saving would be effected if the Corporation purchased horses and carts for the purpose. We should recom- mend the committee before arriving at a decision to note the plan adopted by the Chiswick Urban District Council. This enter- prising authority has purchased motor wagons for Mthe purpose, and their Surveyor reports that a week's experience with one of the cars shows that they are very easily controlled, and far more economical than horse labour. One wagon, it is stated, does the work of three ordinary carts, and the Surveyor estimates that the Council will save between £500 and JE600 a year by the new system. Certainly the matter is worth enquiring into.
