PRESENTATION.--Last week Mr. C. J. Logan was presented by the Whitby cricket club and some of his admirers in that town with a pair of pads and gloves and a fine bat bearing his name. The presentation was made by Mr. J. E. Farewell. Mr. Logan's cricket record in connection with the club, says the Chronicle, has proved how well worthy he is of the compliment.

DEATH OF WOODHOUSE IN THE JAIL.--The unfortunate man Robert Woodhouse of Dysart, who attempted suicide and was, after being committed to gaol, removed to the Toronto hospital, died in the goal here on Wednesday morning last. It seems that the hospital surgeons told him that he would not recover from the loathsome disease afflicting him, and he asked to be allowed to go home to die. He was permitted to leave the hospital and he succeeded in reaching Lindsay on Saturday, the conductor of Nipissing having from sympathy passed him through. On Sunday Chief Constable Smart found him lying near the railway track at the paper mill, and had him committed to gaol as a vagrant. He was then very weak, and unable to walk. At the gaol he received the very best treatment possible, but the disease--which was of the nature of blood poisoning--had got beyond medical control, and he died on Wednesday morning. An inquest was held by Dr. Poole, coroner, when a verdict of death from natural causes was returned. It seems that the unfortunate man was only diseased a little over six weeks. His condition at the time of his death is described as extremely loathsome. The family has been sent by the county of Haliburton to relatives in Renfrew.--Post.
