case, apart from the statutory provisions of the Deeds of Arrangement Act. It is, however, interesting to note the law on the point, which played no mean part in the celebrated action of Doe dem. Titmouse v. Aubrey, in Warren's “ Ten Thousand a Year.” When a person produces a document which upon its face appears to have been altered in a material part, he cannot claim under it the enforcement of any right created by it, unless the alteration (even though made by a stranger whilst the document was in his custody, though without his knowledge or leave) was made before the completion of the document, or with the consent of the party to be charged under it, or his representative in interest. Such is the result of Pigot's case, 11 Rep., 47; Davidson v. Cooper, 11 Meeson and Welsby, 778, 13 M and W., 343 ; and the later case of Aldous v. Cornwell, L.R., 3 Q.B., 573, which decided that filling in the de

Testings were on the premises by the committee early in December, made at different hours each day at the testing-house, 1887, between which date and January, 1888, when the Grove Gardens, and the report of Mr. Bernard F. Holoffer of a Mr. Parkes was accepted by the committee, ford, B.Sc., London University, the appointed examiner several persons in addition to Mr. Parkes had applied was that on the 17th of October last the reading was 15:5, or a deficiency of illuminating power equal to half a candlo. On the 5th of November the testings showed a reading of 15:4, or a deficiency of over half a candle.

Professor Williamson had held an inquiry, and his report, which was final, endorsed the returns of the examiner. In defence, Mr. Besley urged that the calculations on the part of the complainants were not correct. The system of testing by candles had been found to be untrustworthy, and a new mode of testing had already been established. Mr. Truby, the chief engineer of the company, would tell the Court that the testings of the same gas at the two city stations and at Spring Gardens on the dates in question registered over 16:0. But, even if there had been a deficiency, it was so small that had it been a little less the company would not have been liable to any forfeiture. Mr. de Rutzen said the report of the chief gas examiner was conclusive, and he must therefore convict. He imposed a penalty of 20s., with 2s. costs in each case. This is the company that supplies the Temple and the Strand District with gas. We should like some testing to take place for these quarters.

record it, for there are always plenty to throw stones at the Queen's second son on the ground of his alleged meanness. The Duke is economical ; the more to his credit. The fact is, the Duke's income is very much over estimated, and people think that because he married a Czar's daughter his bride came to him laden with a mountain of roubles. Such was not the case. The Duchess of Edinburgh has £100,000 worth of diamonds, but these are not convertible into current coin, and to a Duke of somewhat limited means, for his position, must have been something like the present of lace ruffles sent to a man who had no shirt.

Nine out of ten of the absurd stories of the Duke's parsimony are sheer nonsense, and those who understand what the life of a royal Duke is, and the moral courage which is required to exercise any economy at all, will rather respect than condemn the Duke for his careful habits, and will certainly join us in wishing him a rapid convalescence and complete restoration to health.
