MR LIONEL CLAPHAM.

Mr Lionel Clapham, whose death has occurred at 39, Carlton Terrace, Whitley Bay, was well known in Newcastle, with which he had, for a considerable number of years, business associations. He was formerly a coal exporter, with offices on the Quay, and more recently took over the management of a large seed establishment, which he and other members of the family had acquired. In his dealings with the numerous customers he was always courteous and genial, and gained the respect and esteem of all with whom he came in contact. He had a stroke at the end of last year, and that was followed by another in the course of a month. Then he steadily improved, and was able to go away for a holiday. He had, however, a third seizure a few days ago, and it proved fatal.

Mr Clapham, who leaves a widow and two children, was a son of the late Mr Henry Clapham, who was Sheriff of Newcastle in the year 1882, and died during his year of office. Mr Lionel Clapham took a keen interest in geography, and was one of the five gentlemen who founded the Tyneside Geographical Society. He served as a member of the council for several years; also as treasurer and as assistant to the late Mr. G.E.T. Smithson, secretary. He was associated, as secretary, with Dr Nansen during the latter's tour in England and in the United Sates.

The funeral will take place on Monday at Jesmond.

A COOL HOUSEBREAKER.

UNPLEASANT SURPRISE FOR A BENTON RESIDENT.

On returning home from a fortnight's holiday, Mr. Norman Clapham, residing at Elmcroft, Lyndhurst-road, Benton, yesterday found that his house had been forcibly entered. The intruder had thoroughly ransacked the house, and taken away a great deal of Mr. Clapham's clothing, some china and cutlery, for which purpose he is supposed to have used a large wicker hamper, which is missing.

The thief had also used a quantity of cigarettes, the ends of which were found lying about the floor. He had also consumed a quantity of wine, brandy, and soda water, and had taken way about 50 cigars. Two money boxes, containing about £1, have also been stolen.

It is evident that the thief was aware that Mr. Clapham and his family were likely to be away some time, as he had slept in the beds on one or more nights. The house next door is at present unoccupied, and therefore any noise the intruded might have made in forcing an entrance would not be noticed.

The matter has been reported to the local police, but up to the present remains a mystery. It is said that the intruder left behind part of his own clothing, which may prove a clue to his identity.
