Mr. Justice Bigham was on Saturday evening the guest of the Incorporated Law Society qj Liverpool at adinner held at the Adelphi Hotel, in honour of his elevation to the judicial bench. Mr. Frank Gregory, the president, presided over a largo company, which included, in addition to Mr. Justice Bigham, Mr. Birrell, Q.C., nI.P., Mr. M‘Arthur, M.P., Mr. Danson (president of the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce), Mr. Cottrell ( resident of the Liverpool Engineering Society), Professor Emmott, M.A., ]€L.D., and the president and ofllcers of the Manchester Law Association.
At the Winchester Assizes on , Tuesday, says the Times, before Mr. Justice Hawkins, Willet Blake, labourer, on bail, was charged with indecently assaulting a girl named Laura Saunders. The details of the case call for no report; but a point of the highest importance arose during the trial. It appeared that when the case was heard before the Lymington Bench the prisoner was defended by a solicitor and desired to call a man named Ric man as a witness. His lawyer, however, advised him not to do so, but suggested that Rickman should be called as a witness at the trial. Tbereupon the magistrates, without hearing Rickman, bound him over to appear at the assizes as a witness for the defence. The judge now said that, in so doing, they and their clerk had committed a gross irregularity. Under Russell-Gurney's Act, passed in 1867, 30 8: 31 Vict. c. 35, s. 3—a statute with which every magistrate-‘s clerk and every magistrate oughtto be well acquainted-it is the duty of justices to ask an accused person if he desires to call any witness; and, if the accused shall desire to do so, the justices “ shall, in the presence of such accused person, take the statement on oath . . . of those . . . so called as witnesses by such accused person . . . and such witnesses . . . as shall in the opinion of the justices give evidence lu any way material to the case or tending to prove the innocence of the accused shall be bound by recognizance to appear and give evidence at the trial." His lordship then read section 5 of the same Act (which gives the court power to allow the extpenses of such witnesses), and then went on to say that it was perfec y clear that the magistrates should themselves hear the witness, and it was not within their jurisdiction to bind over any witness for the defence without first of all hearing his evidence. The prisoner and Rickman both gave evidence now, and in the result the prisoner was found Not Guilty. His lordship ordered Rickman’s expenses as a witness to be paid, but disallowed the whole of the costs of the prosecution.
For two months, says the Paris correspondent of the Times, people have been discussing whether fl woman in France can be n barrister. Mlle. Chauvin, who has raised this question, has gone through all the studies required for men. She is Licencié en Droit; nay more, she is Licensié es Lettres and Docteur en Droit, the latter after a brilliant examination before the Faculty of Law. She has thus a higher education than most barristers. The French law requires three things for the exercise of the legal profession—the presentation of a diploma of Licencié en Droit certified by the Procureur-Général—a mere formality which Mlle. Chauvin has fulfilled without difllculty, an oath before the Court of Appeal, and admission by the Council of the Order of Advocates. Mlle. Chaiivin went to the Court of Appeal to accomplish the second formality. A large crowd of women, journalists, and barristers had collected as though for a sensational trial. When Mlle. Ohauvin advanced to the bar and asked to be sworn the Procureur-Général, M. Bertrand, took objection. He acknowledged that no law expressly forbade a woman to be a barrister, but he maintained that the spirit, if not the letter, of the law excluded her. He dwelt also on the diflioulties which a woman would encounter in such a profession, and he urged the court not to Opel]. .1 way for them. Mlle. Chauvin, who had listened attentively and taken notes, asked and obtained leave to reply. Bareheaded, wearing a black silk dress, and having taken off a boa, she spoke, text-book in hand, in a clear and audible tone, and combated uriatim the Procureur‘s arguments. She remarked that her present application was not to practise as n barrister, but simply to be sworn, and that this could not be refused her inasmuch as women were allowed, and even required, to be sworn as witnesses and on a pointments in the Postal and Telegraph Service. She insisted that, b French law, an incapacity such as was sought to be inflicted on her ought to rest on an express enactment, and she asked the court to administer the oath,

leaving to tho Court of Advocates the responsibility of definitive admission or rejection. Her arguments seemed to make an impression, but, according to usage, judgment was deferred for a week. Mlle. Chauvin, on
leaving the court, was applauded by the crowd.

No matter whether physical or mental labour is meant» or even if, nu is too often the case in these days of fierce struggle for existence, an excess of either has to be accomplished, Dr. Tibhles' Vi-Cocoa will prove of inestimable service. The jadsdness and tiredness which characterises thousinds of young men and women of the present diy too often reso ves itself into a question of diet. Children and young pers ins do not iauim so much food as nourishment, and a (grcrtially digas Food Beverage, such _a.s Dr. 'I‘ibbles’Vi- an, gives strength, stamina,_and builds up and strengthens the tissues. The disinclination for further I effort and exertion so often experienced will become athiug
of the past; and heat in summer, and cold in winter, an all the bleak uncertainties of our trying‘ climate can be faced with Dr. Tibbles‘ Vi-Cocoa. which _ as concentrated powers of nutriinent, and imparts Blillllllll and staying powers. adds to powers of endurance, and enables those yvlzo use it to undergo greater physical exertion and a i
Th: Br-liah lliediuzl Journal says: "Vi-Cocoa is a_vcry palatable beverage of great stimulating and sustaining pargger-ties." The Lancet says : "Vi-Cocoa is in the front
of really valuable foods." We say that for breakfast and supper there is nothing to equal Dr. Tibbles' Vi-Cocoa; and the following is s very small portion of what the trade say in the leading University centres, being an attract from the Comb:-idgs Independml Pram.
The re rter writes : “ Mr. Carley, whose shop is beneath the shaclhow nf Magdalen College. says the people speak well of Dr. Tibblcs’ Vi~Coco \. Ha had a customer only last Saturday who spoke wonderfully in praise of it. The sales had doubled and treblsd. The University men ask for it, and it is clear that it has hit the public taste. Again, Messrs. Hattersley Brag“ oi Trinity-street, are known as high-class grocers w o do a large University trade. They state that last term there were so many inquiries by undergraduates for Vi-Cocoa that they were bound to get a stock of it, and they have provided fora large sale this term, for which they finds large demmd. Many ‘Varsity men come to the shop and ask for it."
Al of which confirm the statements about this Wonderful Food Beverage appearing from time to time in the Soi.ici-mics’ Joiisiun.
Merit, and mciit alone, is what we claim for Dr. 'l‘ibbles'
Vi-Cocoa, and we are prepared to send to any reader who names the Souci-roas' Jousssi. a dainty sample tin of Dr. Tibbles’ Vi-Cocoa free and post-paid. There is no magic in all this. It is a plain, honest, straightforward offer. It is dons to introduce the merits of Vi-Coc~a into every homo. Dr. Tibbles' Vi-Cocoa, as s concentrated form of nourishment and vitality, is invaluable; nay more than this, for all who wish to face the strife and battle ofliia with greater endurance and more sustained exertion, it is absolutely indispensable. ‘ _ ‘ Dr. Tibblm' Vi-Cocoa, 8d, 9d., ls. 61. Can be obtained from all Chemists, Grocers, and Stores, or from Dr. 'l‘ibbles' Vi-Cocoa, Limited, 60, 61, and 62, Bunhill-row, London, E.C.
