There are yet about fifty wit nesses to be heard. Itefore continuing the hearing of wit- jnesses the presiding Judge has to decide whether it is necessary for tho court nnd jury to visit the soonm of the crime at Naples and Torre del Ctreco. So far only ono of tho jurymen has asked the court to visit the scenes of the crime, and beforo any decision is taken by tho Judge it will be neccssury that tho other jurymen indorse the request.

According to Ii.

A London newspaper has been looking info lho subject, it found that on one day of tweuty-ono utrceta inspected thrco were j clean" and fire were "fair." while the others were "filthy," "very dirty or "muddy." The demand for economy In municipal administration Is given an the main cause for the dirty streets, And tiie mud is paid to be nastier and more penetrating than formerly "I certainly do not under stand why tho people of this great city do not rise and smite the authorities,' remarked Mr. Clancey. The answer may be found in the com plaint that Iondoners do not take any great amount of interest in the conduct of municipal affairs. They are as a rulo intensely Interested in Parliamentary elections and anything that off oct matters of national policy, but'aronot Incllnod to become excited, It is said, in political campaigns of purely municipal Impor tance. The scheme on which King George's children are educated includes careful instruction in all tho typical open air sports and games. Cricket, riding, fen- cingvioxing, shooting and the like the young I'rince of W'ules has been carefully and scientifically taught by past masters. A few years ago a ship was rigged in Virginia Waters, nnd hero he mid his younger brother with great thoroughness were instructed in tiie management of sails and ropes, of handling an o.ir and steering a bout. During his Christmas holidays tho young I"rinco has been in structed in yet nnother open air art, that of the automobile. Within a few mouths of his paining the legal age limit for drivers, he has been devoting some of his vacation to learning nil about the construction and coro of internal combustion motor engines un der the tuition of the expert who has trained nil tho King's chauffeurs. This is Undecimus Stratton, who hns been down to York Houbo, Snndringham, to give tho lessons. Ily Saturday last the I'rince had mudo such progress that he drove a ID horse-power Daimler car forty live miles without mishap or mistake. It was noticed that he showed careful consideration for every one using the rood. This wua in accordance with his father's directions to all tho royal drivers.

Tho nolico onened nil the letters ho received from London, Paris, ueneva ana ruterson and round that thov contained money remitted by his friends, who deplored his "idleneps." Fight de tectives were sent to Foligno with ordeis to watch him closely, and in fact two of them accompanied him ovorywheto while two others followed him nt a safe distance. Jaffel seemed reconciled to polico stir veillanco, but occasionally he used lo show "his guardian atigels how easy it. was for him to escape. Ho borrowed a bicycle nnd after racing through the oountry with the two detectives follow ing him he would Invariably distaiiye them and disappear. After remaining in hiding in some neighboring village for a couple of duvs ho would return lo Foligno and laugh heartily at the police who meanwhile had reported his escape to Homo and wired to the frontier stations and all sea ports for his at rest. Jaffel recently asked tho Mayor of Foligno for a house rent free, since he said that as the Oovernment was spending so much money to have him watched it was onlv just that the municipality should at least house him. 'I lie Mayor naturally re fused and Jaffel asked for n sum of nionev to tiny his way to London, from where he had been expelled for five years and tills term had iust exnlred.
