Miss Dora Thewlis, the young suffragette, who was released by the magistrate on Wednesday is lying seriously ill at her Huddersfield home. Her exciting experiences in London and the rigours of her prison treatment have, says a London "Evening News" correspondent, proved too much for her. She has broken down, and her parents have been, compelled to summon medical assistance. Her father and mother are indignant at what they consider their young daughter’s harsh treatment in prison. They are determined that the matter shall not be allowed to rest where it is, but are arranging to bring Dora's sufferings to the notice of the Home Secretary.

Manchester Lady Unrepentant.

Miss Macaulay, of the Women's Social and Political Union, who has visited the imprisoned suffragettes in gaol, reports that Mrs. Chatterton. the Manchester enthusiast, is quite cheerful and unrepentant. She is suffering again in health.
