PRESERVATION OF LIFE FROM SHIPWRECK.
 On Thursday, May 29th, a meeting of the Shipwreck Institution was held at great Winchester-street, the Duke of Nothumberland, the president of the society, in the chair. The minutes of the former meeting having been read by the secretary, it was agreed that life-boats should be stationed, after due inquiry, at Worthing and at Dundrum, County Down.

ROYALTY AND THE LIFEBOAT,
Upwards of a Thousand Pictures,
The Press Association states that as president of the Imperial Institute the Prince of Wales recently communicated with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution with a view of obtaining a series of animated photographs of the actual work of a lifeboat for exhibition at the Imperial Institute during the Diamond Jubilee celebrations For this purpose the Worthing lifeboat was selected, and this morning views were taken by Mr Bert Acres, wbo, it is understood, will on the day of the Jubilee celebration photograph for the purposes of the animatograph the scene inside Buckingham Palace during the assembling ol Royal personages for the procession. The crew of the lifeboat to day was commanded by the veteran coxswain Charles Lee, who holds a silver medal of the Lifeboat Institution. The men were summoned by the signal gun, and after cleverly launching their boat rowed lustily in the direction of an imaginary wreck, a great crowd meanwhile assembling to witness the operations. Some exceedingly good views were secured the, the long lengths of film brought into use representing more than a thousand pictures.
