SIR,âWill anyone kindly inform me, through e medium of your widely-r. ad paper, whether e gentleman who was recently so successfully engineered into the post of clerk to the School has yet taken up his residence in our midst. does he intend to ? I understand he is supposed devote the whole of his time to the duties of his See. Why, then, does he live in Cardiff, unless irry is not good enough a place fof him to livr ? Surely, if he earns his money entirely in the Iwn, the town should receive the benefit of his isidence here.âYeurs &c A BARRYITE. Barry, November 14th, 1899. SOLDIERS AND SAILORS' FAMILIES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE BARRY DOCK NEWS." SIR,âMay I ask the kiud hospitality of your ttumns to call attention to a very generous ovement for the benefit of our reservists' fanci- es that has been brought to my notice this week. lr J. G, Walliker (of Messrs Hodges and Wwlliker, til, engineers and ship repairers, Barry Dock), rites to a friend as follows With reference to our conversation the other lorning regarding the subscriptions you are so indly collecting on behalf of the funds for reser- sts' widows and orphans, I have very great leature in letting you know that I spoke to my mployees yesterday, asking them if they were illing to give something every week (until Ihristmas for certain) towards this fund. They ,ere one and all most loyal and patriotic, thanked ne for the proposal, and each man decidrd to give d per week on every pound they earn. To the otal sum I collect per wetk from this source 1 wili dd a like amount.âTrusting you will be able to 1 et some of the other firms in the district to do ikewise, I remain, &c., J. G. WALLIKER." Mr Walliker's aspiration will, I trust, be grati" ied. To my mind, whoever among us is doing nything at all, either by gift or kindly word of ympathy to the anxious wife or mother at home, or the families of those who have gone forth to ight our battles, is contribimng in his or her lerson to the defence of our mightly Empire, and ,cting the part of a good citizen. May I also ask to be allowed to acknowledge he following contributions already received by m, r, as fur as I know, up to date received at our ocal hanks, « here, by the kindly courtc-y of the nanagers, colhcting cards are being exhibited :â tir 0 H Jones, JE10 Mrs Jenm r, £10, Mr F P Tones-Lloyd, f2 2s Mrs Livingstone, £1 Is Mrs i Forrest, £10, and from friends, JE1 10s Mr R I Carrick, JE3 0s 9rJ (cullectecl at annual dinner of .he Windor Lldge, Fmmasons); Miss Rous, £ 100 Mr and Mrs J H Westvr Evans, each £ 2 Mr W Forster Biown, Dinas Powis, £ 5 5s; Mr Sidney Daviet, Barry Dock, 10s 6<1 and Mr )t:orge Mason, Barry, 10s 6d.

SIR,âMr Parry Richards' letter in your contem- porary of 10th inst. mentioning the amusing, though grievous, bit of mendacity put forward in order to Becure Mr R. T. Evaus' appointment to the Clive- road School no doubt will be read with mingled feelings of loathing and disgust by a great number of the public of Barry who knew Mr Norria and are aware of the countless instances in which he gave the benefit of those splendid talents he possessed to his scholars and the public at large. The unassuming way in which he imparted portions of that wonderful store of learning to each and all alike, his eagerness to assist any struggling scholar, and the many other devoted acts he did to benefit his fellow-men, are only known to a com- parative few. But this called forth that envy, jealousy, and implacable hatred from the handful of would-be powerful persons, who would have encompassed his ruin, but for the intervention of upwards of 700 upright, honest, and influential ratepayers of Barry. Many enquiries have been made as to whether Mr Norris and his assistant masters and mistresses received the few pounds of hard-earned salary which the Governors of the County School so spite- fully withheld from them I say spitefully because it could not be thiough any concern the School authorities of Barry hold for the ratepayers pockets, for when one comes to ponder over the facts of the recent appointment of the Clerk to the School Board, when there was already a highly enterprising and talented gentleman doing practi- cally the whole of the work required for that office, and moreover was ready, I undersiand, to con- tinue to do so at a slightly increased salary, ODe is frone to draw conclusions to the opposite.â remain, &c.. GEORGE MASON. 8, Wenvoe Terrace, Barry, 15th November, 1899. P.S.âNo doubt the public has read with alarm of the proposed resignation of Dr O'Donnell from the School Board. It is sincerely to be hoped that he may be induced to reconsider his decision.âG.M.
