A special n-eelinj of snop assistants will be held on T i-s-iay evening next at Coombes' jBestaurant to consider the closing system, when all shop assistants are urgently requested to attend. Aü interested in the movement should ecmir.ly put in an appearance. An English girl who was kissed by a stran- ger and La him arrested for his boldness testified iI" Court that "lIe kissed her six timee and -An she stopped counting. A Pontyprid-i girl, under such circumstances, probably w "Ãd have been entirely engrossed in the counting. On Sunday evening, the 26th ult.. the Rev. J. R.

This quali- fication was, he believed, largely due to the excellent training they received from the Wes.eyan ministers. It has remained for a Welshman to avenge ifco American jibe that in Wales we have no climate, but only samples. When complain- ing in Boston of the terrible cold-there haa Been a drop in the thermometer of a score or two of degrees in twenty-four hoursâhe was asked, "Hut don't you have cold weather in Wales?"

A Wo ventry landlord has recently inserted an ingenious clause in his rent-books. It runs as follows: "No dogs, pigeons or rabbits allowed to be kept on the premises unless rent be paid to the landlord for them. and a separate rent book is given to the tenant by the landlord 'with the name of each dog, and the number of pigeons or rabbits to be allowed to be kept. Ubgs, per week. 6d. each; pigeons, per week, 3d. each; rabbits, per week, 3d. each." Sir Wilfred Lawson has. after his manner, expressed hi3 opinion of the Workmens Com- pensation Act in verse, and it has been made effective use of by Mr Broadhurst in the series of meetings he has been just addressing.

So the mor-d ls this-is I'm not far amiss I* you are a wise working man, If you find you've a call to accomplish a fall. Then tumble as far as you can. Sir Wilfred Lawson suggests an Ecumenical Council which might be made up out of the present Parliament to look after the interests of the Cftmrch of England. Here it is:âMr Arifcur Balfour (Apostle of Philosophic Doubt). Sir William Harcourt (Avenging Angel of Legality),, Mr John Dillon (Roman Catholic), Mr Sam Smith (Protestant), Mr Carvell Wil- Bams Presenter), Mr Walter Rothschild (.Jew), Me LaBoncfaere (Sage), Sir M. Bhownaggre" fCftrsee), and Sir Wilfred Lawson (Lunatic) Row ftbswrd it was, said he, to talk about â issenftrtr; Laving nothing to do -with the aBefrs of the Church because they did not go to dhurch. He did not go to the public house fiat he claimed to have something to do with ilit affairs. Parliament could make larws for "Hie Church, and it had the power to make | PIP6ple obey these laws.
