MOFFETT -- In loving memory of our dear daughter Jennie, who departed this life April 15, 1907, and was interred in Kilmore Meeting-house Green.
     She is not here, oh no, for she is risen,
          And passed away before our longing sight
     Into the home so dear, which we call Heaven,
          Into God's joy and everlasting light.
     She meets with God, and she hath seen His glory,
          All pain and tears are passed -- for ever passed;
     She views in light the shadows of earth's story
          And knows as she herself is known at last.
     Soon shall the sunrise of our life for ever
          Chase the dark shadows of the reign of night;
     The slumbering mists of ages lift and sever
          And in the light of God shall we see light.

CHILDREN IN A PIG-STYE

DUBLIN CRUELTY CASE

In the Southern Police Court, Dublin, on Friday, before Mr. Swifte, Patrick Dennison, labourer, was prosecuted by Inspector Nealy, N.S.P.C.C., on a charge of deserting his family. Mr. Tobias appeared for the Society. It appeared from the evidence of the inspector and of Mrs. Dennison, wife of the accused, that the family had occupied a cottage at Templeogue. The parents took to drink, and the inspector on several occasions found the children hungry and in rags, although Dennison was earning 20s. a week. On one occasion Dennison came home drunk, kicked his wife, and gave her two black eyes and other marks. The family were eventually evicted from their cottage, and Mrs. Dennison, with the children, William, aged three years, and Michael, aged one year, took shelter in an old shed made of boards and slabs, and used as a pigsty. There they spent several nights. On finding the children there the inspector got Mrs. Dennison to take them to the union, having first supplied them with food. The boy, Michael, remained for some time in the union, where he contracted measles, and he died afterwards in the Cork Street Hospital. Another child was born in the union. At length Mrs. Dennison came out to her mother's house, and she had been working for a farmer in the neighbourhood, and helping to support the family. The husband had cleared out. In August, 1906, the inspector got a warrant for his arrest, but he his away in Scotland, and he was arrested in Ayrshire a few days ago by Sergeant Farrell, and brought in custody to Dublin.

Mr Swifte sentenced Dennison to four month's imprisonment with hard labour, and 10 pounds bail, or two additional months.

There was a charge of sleeping out against the lad Albert. Mr.D. F. Spiller prosecuted (for Mr. A. G. Lewis) on behalf of the Society, and Mr. N. Tughan represented the defendants. From the evidence of Inspector Smith it appeared that he had visited the children on several occasions when they lived in Turin Street. He had always found the children in a very neglected condition and clothed in rags. Constable West said that he found the boy Albert asleep in a doorway in Venice Street at an early hour in the morning of the 7th inst. He was stiff and blue with the cold. The male defendant was a cooper, and could earn about 30s a week, but was addicted to drink, while the female defendant worked in a warehouse and earned 10s a week. The case was adjourned for a week.

FUNERAL OF MR. JOHN HENDERSON, BALLYNURE.

On Friday afternoon, in the old churchyard at Ballynure, within a stone's throw of his late residence, was laid to rest the mortal remains of Mr. John Henderson, newsagent. The late Mr. Henderson was widely known and much respected in the neighbourhood, as was shown by the large attendance which gathered on the sad occasion to pay a last tribute of respect to one who had always been upright and honest in his business dealings. Rev. T. E. Nesbitt, rector of Ballynure, officiated in the house and at the graveside, and the chief mourners were Messrs. Jas. Henderson, David Henderson, Frank Baird, Allan Henderson, John Erskine, and Samuel Henderson.

A RECTOR FINED

FIGHT FOR THE OFFERTORY.

For brawling in his own church, Rev. Thomas Lloyd was, at Epping Petty Sessions on Friday, fined 2 and 5 costs, while he was committed for assaulting and detaining Mr. Henry John Miller, the people's warden. The defendant was rector of the parish church of Theydon-Garnon, near Epping, and the case for the prosecution was that on Sunday, 22nd March, after morning service, the rector wanted to get possession of the offertory, and committed a technical assault on the churchwarden, endeavouring to imprison him in the vestry. The offertory amounted to 18s 10 ½d. Mr. Miller took the 18s, with the intention of banking it, leaving the coppers in the plate. The rector flew into a passion, and called out, "You don't go out of here with the money," at the same time locking the vestry door. Mr. Miller deposed this in evidence and further alleged that the rector became very violent and menacing. He was detained for ten minutes, at the end of which time Mr. Lloyd unlocked the door, and when he (witness) was leaving, the sexton tried to stop him. The rector followed him outside, and said "You haven't got it all." Witness turned and said "Very well, old man, you can keep the rest and spend it." (Laughter.)

Mr. Murphy (defending) -- Did you say, "You can go and buy whisky with the coppers"?

Witness -- Probably I did. I thought a little more would just about finish the job up.

Defendant denied the assault, and also swore on oath that there was no truth in the suggestion that he was in any way intoxicated or the worse to wear for liquor.

A BOY BURGLAR

In Belfast Police Court, Constable Philip Golden charged a little boy named William Brady, of 41 Bond Street, with the larceny of 3s 4d, the property of Catherine Morris of Linenhall Street, on the 17th Inst.; also with breaking and entering Morris's shop on the 1st inst., and stealing a quantity of cigarettes and sweets. The officer stated that when he arrested the lad the father handed him 3s, which he stated he had found in the boy's possession. Prisoner's brother was examined, and said that he was with "Billy", when he broke the window of the shop and stole the cigarettes and sweets. He was also with him on the 17th, when he returned to the premises, and in broad daylight took the money from the drawer. Prisoner was sent to Artane Industrial School.

EASTER SNOWS

Telegrams received this morning show that the wintry weather continues. The Newmarket race meeting has been abandoned because of the snow and frost. Snow has been falling at Bournemouth since early this morning, and a snow plough is clearing the train lines. The snow at Sharbourne is 5 inches deep.

The snow which fell during the night on the playing area at the Crystal Palace was cleared away, and the ground was in good condition for the Cup final.

TRAM AND TRAIN TRAFFIC INTERFERED WITH

Snow is falling heavily in Sussex and Hampshire, accompanied by a strong northwest wind. In the district round Midhurst the snow had already reached a depth of many inches, and the drifts are making traffic difficult. A terrific snowstorm broke over Southampton shortly after four o'clock am, and there are at present quite two feet of snow in the roadways. Gangs of men are at work digging out the tramcars, while the trains are running over an hour late, the tracks being completely covered by snow. At half-past ten there was no abatement of the storm, which is stated to be the worst there for over twenty years.

FOUND DEAD IN SNOW

On Friday night the body of George Palmer, of Bury Street, St. Edmunds, was found in the snow by the roadside, near Great Wallingfield, Essex, by a postman. Palmer was a dealer, and during the storm on Thursday set out to walk from Wallingfield to Sudbury. He was evidently overcome by the blizzard, and sank by the roadside to die. The body was exposed as the thaw set in.

BLIZZARD IN YORKSHIRE -- DEATH FROM THE COLD

Fourteen degrees of frost and the high wolds deeply covered with snow was the report from the East Yorkshire district today, says the Central News Malton correspondent. Such an Eastertide has not been known in the district for 45 years. The farmers are suffering seriously from the severity of the weather, which is causing those in the North much loss in the late lambing season and crops. Everything is backward for the end of April. Snow is still falling and the thermometer all day has been scarcely above freezing point.

Mr. Luke White, the East Yorkshire coroner held an inquest at Birdshall, Malton, on Friday on the body of an employee of Lord Middleton's estate called Stephenson, 78 years of age, whose death is attributable to the excessively cold weather. The old man while walking in the fields had a seizure and fell into a ditch, where his dead body was found on Thursday night. A verdict of accidental death was returned.
