SHOWMAN'S SMART ADVERTISEMENT. At the adjourned mee'tlng of the Kensington Licensing Justices, in February, Colonel R. P. Webb presiding, Mr. E. H. Cook, solicitor, appeared on behalf of the licensee for the renewal of the lieeuse of the Lord Ranelagh, whicn had been opposed uy Tne police owing to a young woman, who was said to have won £50 by dancing in the lion's den nt the Fun Crty, Earl's Court, last autumn, being advertised as a barmaid at tbe Lord Ranelagh. PoliceInspector Newmau said the. woman appeared behind the bar on several occasions, but she was not a barmaid, and waf stated not to be unfamiliar with entering dens of lions. Mr. Cook: The licensee gained nothing by the woman's appearance at his house. A Magistrate: Oh, what did he do It for 7 Mr. Cook: He was made the cat's-paw of ihe showmen. The show was doing badly and it was suggested that the appearance of a Fulham barmaid in the lion's den would boom the show.

The Chairman: We will renew the license on this occasion, but applicant must be more careful in future.
