A man was lately brought up for murder in a London police court, who had stabbed a man in the leg with a clasp knife because he stood in front of him in a theatre. The wound necessitated amputation, and the man died from the operation. A Half Clad Plea. —ln Wellington on Monday a picture shop proprietor was sued by a shopman for wages, and, in defence, pleaded that he had been doing but little business, and that little was almost ruined by the shopman putting the “ counterfeit persentment ” of the Victoria Loftus Troupe in the shop window !
