invariably inaccurate as to fact and over- inspired by enthusiasm. DALETH could gel full information as to date, no doubt, b application to the publisher of The Sketch.

Your correspondent may like to know that a very instructive and interesting article, ' How You Can Thought-Read,' by Julius Zancig, appeared in Pearson's Weekly 10 Jan., 1907. About the same time though I cannot give the precise date, a short article by T. A. W. on ' Telepathy as practised by Julius and Agnes Zancig,' appeared in the London Daily Mail.


[MR. ALFRED SYDNEY LEWIS also thanked for reply.]

DR. EDWARD KING (US. xi. 229). He was not uncle or any relation to Edward King, the " Lycidas " of Milton, who was the fourth son of Sir John King of Abbey Boyle, co. Roscommon, Muster Master General, and a Privy Councillor in Ireland, who died 4 Jan., 1636, and who was, accord- ing to Lodge, descended from a family anciently seated at Feathercock Hall, near Northallerton, co. York. Dr. Edward King, whom Ware states to have been a native of Huntingdon, was educated at Trinitj^ College, Dublin, of which he was a Fellow. He was the ancestor of Sir Gilbert King, Bart., of Charlestown, co. Roscommon.

NORBURY : MOORE : DAVIS : WARD (US. xi. 188, 238). Bernard Ward married Jane, daughter and eventually heir of Wil- liam Davis by Jane, daughter and heiress of the Rev. James Hatton of Knockballymore, co. Fermanagh. He was not the great-grandson of " Sir Robert Ward, Survey or- General of Ireland in 1570," inasmuch as there was no such person. He was the great-grandson of Bernard Ward, who died seized of Carrick- shanagh (or Castleward), co. Down, which he held from the Earl of Kildare as of his manor of Ardglass, 12 Sept., 1584. Nicholas Ward, son and heir of Bernard, was then of full age and married. Nicholas Ward was appointed Surveyor-General of the Ordnance 2 Nov., 1599, an office which he surrendered 30 Nov., 1599. Bernard Ward of Carrickshanagh (or Castleward) is probably identical with Barnard or Barnaby Ward, son of John Warde of Oxmantowne by Dublin, yeoman, who received a pardon 25 Sept., 1565. G. D. B.

DE QUINCEY PUZZLE (11 S. xi. 228). " Tcss apettiele " is merely " pie " of the first two words on p. 61 of De Quincey's ' Uncoil. Writ.,' 1890, vol. ii. (so also in ed. 2, 1892). In Hogg's Instructor, July,, 1853, p. 81, they read " pettiest scale."


'A TALE OF A TUB ' (11 S. xi. 251). I have a paper-covered book, with steel engravings, which may be the one sought for :

"The | New Tale of a Tub: | An Adventure in- Verse. | By F. W. N. Bay ley. | A New Edition,, revised by the Author, with a New | Introduction. | With Illustrations | Designed by Lieutenant J. S.. Cotton, and reduced | from Aubry's Drawings. | London : | Routledge, Warne, and Rout ledge, | Broadway, Ludgate Hill. | New York : 129 Grand! Street. | 1865."

There are a frontispiece, engraved title,. Introduction the total letterpress 32 pp.,. 7 illustrations inclusive. From the Intro- duction it appears that the first issue was priced at half-a-crown ; the one before me- is priced on the cover Is. The story is the adventure of two gentlemen of Bengal and' a tiger and a " tub." I shall be pleased to send the little book to MB. R. BYRON- WEBBER for inspection. W. B. S.

The late John Camden Hotten brought out an amusing book of coloured illustrations in 1871 entitled ' Fools' Paradise.' If my~ memory serves me aright, this publication led to trouble on copyright grounds, the illustrations having been taken from th& Munich broadsheets, and the book is now seldom to be met with. One of the set of pictures it contained represented two mis- chievous boys who set a tub rolling, in which " Dodging-Knees the Wise " was wont to repose. They were, however, hoist on their own petard, for the tub finally rolled over them and laid them out flat. I think it probable that this may be the work MR.. BYRON-WEBBER has in mind.


MURPHY AND FLYNN (11 S. x. 409). O'Hart's ' Irish Pedigrees ' states at p. 321 (ed. 1881), under the heading 'The Stem of

he " Murphy " Family,' that

' Seicne (or Secin), brother of Cineth, who i* No. 100 on the ' Bowling ' pedigree, was the ancestor of MacMuircatha, anglicized Murrough* Murphy, &c."

O'Hart here enters the Sept as " Lords of Sy-Felimy, County Wexford," but at p. 587 le describes it as

' MacMurchada, MacMurrough, or Murphy, chief* >f Tomaltaigh in Roscommon, of which Mac- Oiraghty was head chief,"
