The Linthwaite Murder.

Immediately after the murder of the ill-fated Catherine Dennis, at the Ivy Hotel, Linthwaite, it will be remembered that a subscription was raised with a view to the erection of a stone over her grave, and to assist towards the payment of the expenses of her parents. We are informed by Mr. William Hayes, who took a prominent part in the matter, that altogether £29 9s. 2d. was raised. This has been expended as follows :— Handed over to the parents, £5 10s. ; undertaker's bill, £4 12s. 10d. ; grave and burial fees, £1 3s. ; head-stone, £11 ; teas, 18s. 8d. ; certificate, 1s. 3d. ; dues for placing stone in churchyard, 18s. ; printing and stationery, 5s. 5d. ; total, £24. 9s. 2d.
