Earlow yod, the National Training Home for the Feeble minded, is the pioneer institution in the work of training these sadly a ffioted members of the community, and is a “bome" in the truest sense, in that all, officers and staf, aro actuated by kindness and true sympathy, exemplified in patient, loving care for their belp'ose charges. It bas been brought to the bigbest state of efficiency by sixty-four years' experience, is still in the van, and ranks among the poblest efforts of our many philanthropio objecte. Earlewood is not intended for the insane ; it admitted, such cases must not be retained ; por are pauper cases 1 eceived, those cbargeable to the rates being by the rules and by-laws totally disqualified. Although under Stato inspection, no grant or aid of any description is received. It provides for the middle and professional classes, also the wealthy, and patients are admitted on payments ranging from 500 guineas a year or more to those specially selected cases, which are received for remedial treatment, at the rate of 1 guinea a week, including clothing. there being no extras. There is also a charitable foundation, provided by the subscribers for those unable to pay, by which eligible cases may obtain admission, being elected for a period of seven years by the votes of the subscribers, either free or with part payment towards cost, according to the circumstances of the parent&. Foll information and instructions can be obtsided of Mr. H. Howard, the secretary, whose connection of nearly forty years with this work gives him the experienoo that is most belpfolio advising as to doubtful cases. His office is at 36, King William-street, London Bridge, and be gladly gives personal attention and advico to all in quirers.
The report of the actuary on the quinquennial valuation of the Royal Exchange Assurance, the 31st Dec 1910. states that life premiums show an increase of £205,737 4s. Ild. The life asearance fund bas iporeased by £509 059 195, 5d. The valuation discloses a eurplus of £383,418 93. (including £32,683 49. 103. accrued interest). The surplus would have amounted to £429,418 9s, had it not heen for the necessity of writing off £46,000 for depreciation. Deductiog aoorued interest from the surplus, there remains 8 eum of £350,735 48. 2d., which is available for division. Of this sum odeseventh, or £50,105, belongs to the proprietors, and the balance, i.e, £300 630 4'; 2d.. to the participating polioy. holders. The annuity surplus (after deductiog Acorued interest) is £12,060 118. ld. The last five years bas been obaracterised by great development of new bu iness (both li'o and abnuity), and the quinquennium bas yielded exceptional profit. It is gratifying to be in a position to recommend that the bonus allotted to polioy.holders sbould be considerably incroased, and also to report that there is every reason to expect good results in the future.

“ THE BLUE BAG." Tais society was formed in 1907 with the intention of providing an opportunity for barristers and students of the Four Inps of Court (who mean to remain and practise at the Bar in the Un’ted Kingdom) of conducting cases in practically the same circumstances and with the same procedure as in court. Opportunities for pr otice are also afforded to members in making interlocutory applications before a master, dra ting pleadings and indictments, examination and cross. examinat'on of witnesses, arguing on points of law and the conduct of cases generally. By the courtesy of the Treasurer and Masters of the Bench of the Inner Temple, the society meets on Thursdays in every week during the law sittings in each legai year, at 7 45 p.m., in Lecture Room B, 3 (Nortb).

This first meeting of the Easter Sittiogs was beld on Thursday, the 27th ult, in Lecture Room B, King's Bench-walk, when a criminal case (Rex v. William Jones) was tried. William Jones was indicted for uttering counterfeit coin. After hearing the evidence and counsel, the jury returned a verdict of not guilty, and the prisoner was acquitted. The judge was Mr. A. F. Engelbach.
On Thursday last the King's Bench action Marley v. Pickwick's Weekly was tried. Marley claims damages against Pickwick's Weekly in respect of the publication of a report that premises owned by her were haunted by a gbost.
The future meetings are as follows :- May 11, County Court, Gummidge v. Rover Steumship Company: Application by widow and sole dependant of Daniel Gummidge, wbo is alleged to have fallen overboard from the steamship Zingari in Bremen Dock on the 3rd Nov. 1908 and been drowned. May 18, Cbapoery Division, Calderon v. Cald.ron : Originating summons to determine the rights

Progress payments were made from time to time, and these were, at the request of the plaintiff, sent by post. On the lith Jan. 1910 a registered letter inclosing £620 of this sum was sent to the plaintiff, but was lost in the post. Action to recover the money.
Quertes 32. Repeated. APPORTIONMENT OF INCOME -Mr. Chandler's vię w differs from that expressed in Buckley on Companies, 8th edit., at p. 582, where it is stated : • Inquiry as to the time when profita were earned by the company is immaterial as between tenant for life and remainderman, tbeir rights are determined by the time not at which the profits are earned by the company, but at wbich they are by the action of the company made divisible among the members. The adoption of Mr. Chandler's system would in many workvery unfairly; assume in the caso given that the tenant for life bad purchased the Great Western Guaranteed Stook on the 23rd Feb. and died on the following day, bis representatives would have been entitled to the whole of the divide d paid on the 27th Feb. and nearly a third of that paid in August, while the remainder. man would in effect have paid for the February dividend in the purchase price, the purchase being assumed to have taken place the day before the stock was examined.

2. PUBLIC HEALTH ACT 1875, s. 23. A. has built tbree new houses and the nearest main sewer is about 300ft, away. The rural sanitary authority have required him to connect his drain (9ir. diameter) with their sewer, there being no existing cesspool, or laod suitable for one at hand available. Can A. call upon the authority to contribute any and what portion of cost of making tbe drain oiber than the part within 100ft. of the houses ? Does the proviso at the end of the section only relate to cases where “ auch sewer" (i.e., within 100ft. of the houses) in fact exists ? Assuming A. bas do claim against the rural authority for contribution to the expenses until the claim is “taken over," what are his rights to contribution when the • taking over" occurs ?
3. SOLICITOR-Costs-CASE WANTED.-I remember seeing a short time ago a case in wbich it wa' held that a solioitor who undertook to charge bis client a fixed sum for bringing an aotion, aod wbion case he was afterwards successful in widning, was not entitled to retain the taxed costs in addition to the sum agreed to be paid by his client. I think the case came before Mr. Justice Ridley, but am unable to find it. Can any of your correspondents give me the name and reference of such case ?

VO. CXXXI.--No. 3554
All parties seem to be agreed as to the principle of the Insurance Bill introduced by the Chancellor of the Exchequer in the House of Commons, but a complex measure of this description, containing as it does, eighty-seven clauses and nine schedules, is bound to raise considerable difference of opinion as to detail. Naturally the success or
. otherwise of a scheme of this description must depend largely upon actuarial considerations with which we cannot attempt to deal, and there is no doubt that in its course through Parliament many important amendments and alterations will be necessary before it can be placed upon the statute-book. The imposition of a compulsory system of thrift is undoubtedly for the good of the classes coming within the purview of the Bill, but, at the same time, although simplicity of collection is an excellent principle, care must be taken that too large a burden is not placed upon any particular class. It would seem that both parties are anxious that proposals of the nature contained in the Bill should pass into law, but it is only by careful and well-thought-out criticism that a fair and workable scheme will be obrained.
