BARRY, CADOXTON, AND DISTRICT NURSING ASSOCIATION. Miss L. Allen, of Porthkerry Rectory, in her capacity as secretary, has just issued the first statement of the working of the above associa- tion since its establishment in February last- In making an earnest appeal to the public for further support, Miss Allen points out that on the 6th of April the first lady nurse com- menced duties, the second lady nurse being engaged on the 13th of June. In addition to these, a cottage nurse has been employed during the past four months. Proceeding, Miss Allen states Some idea of the work to be done may be gathered from the fact that the district the committee has taken in hand, and which comprises the parishes of Michael- stone-le-pit, St. Andrew's, Dinas Powis, Wen- voe, Cadoxton, Barry, Merthyr Dovan, Porth- kerry, and Pen mark, contains a population of over 15,000 people, very few of whom are well-to-do. During the twelve weeks ending 27th of June, 97 cases, necessitating 576 visits, have been attended to. Out of these 97 cases, 42 are reported by Miss Evans as convalescent. There have been eight deaths, and sixteen have been removed from the books for various causes. At the present moment there are many cases that cannot be attended to for want of nursing power. The committee, up to date, has received, or has had promises of donations amounting to, Y,75 15s. 9d., and annual subscriptions amounting to.9215 13s 6d. from 99 subscri- bers, one of whom, a lady, and without whose help the association could not have been star- ted, has given Â£100, and has promised a simi- lar sum for the next two years." The esti- mated ordinary expenditure during the first twelve months is expected to reach about 2307, while the extraordinary, or non-recur- rent, expenditure already incurred in furnish- ing the nurses' home, &c., has amounted to JB148. These figures show, therefore, that for the current year without any increase of staff, some 2100 for ordinary, and X80 for extra- ordinary, expenditure is required, and the committee earnestly begs all those interested in any way in the welfare of Barry and the neighbourhood to do their utmost to make possible its very essential work amongst the local sick. Should further support be forth- coming, the staff can be enlarged, and a cot- tage hospital and creche and other useful institutions grafted on to the present scheme. The committee also feel, and rightly O, we think, that a free pass should be granted to the nurses travelling over the Barry line. Surely this is a request which will not be de- nied the committee if the directors are properly approached in the matter.
THE INFIRMARY MOVEMENT. We are glad to assure our readers that steps are being taken to give tangible form to the movement for the establishment of an infirmary in the Barry Dock district. The directors of the Barry Company are in full sympathy with the scheme, and there is every reason to believe that they will be one of the principal supporters of the fund both for the erection of the building and the maintenance of the institution. Other gentlemen are prepared to throw in their aid equally as willingly, and several large employers of labour at the docks are also anxious to give the movement their support. The members of the different trade and labour societies in the district will likewise be approached through the respective secretaries, and in the course of a few months it is expected the project will have assumed a substantially developed form.
UTILISATION OF CADOXTON COMMON. A rumour having got abroad that the Barry Dock News has taken up an attitude of oppo- sition to the proposed utilisation of Cadoxton Common for public purposes, we have not the slightest hesitation in giving the allegation an unqualified denial. Not only are we in favour of the movement initiated by Mr Benjamin Lewis at a recent meeting of the Local Board, but we have done our utmost to assist the promoters to attain their laudable object, and have all along felt and contended that in its present condition that beautiful eminence so delightfully situated in our midst is, in its present form, piactically useless, and it is our opinion that until its surrender to the public has been effected, unhampered by traditional and ancestral conditions, the true value of the common will never be realised.
"THE BARRY RAILWAYS COMPANY." By the Act passed in Parliament last week sanction has been given to the alteration of the name of the Barry Dock and Railways Company to the Barry Railways Company. This change was sought by the directors in consequence of the confusion created on 'Change in London by the stock of the com- pany being sometimes described under the head of railways, and at other times under that of docks, and it is fully anticipated that the value of the preference and debenture shares of the undertaking will now be substan- tially increased by their being quoted in the London Stock Exchange under a definite head. The announcement last week of the com pany's dividend of 11 per cent. for the past half year has given the ordinary stock a healthy firmness, and 230 is now readily offered, although but little, if any, business can be done even at this phenomally high figure, as the holders prefer retaining their shares in so prosperous a concern in antici- pation of another issue of new capital at no distant date.
THE PROPOSED DISTRICT UNITED FOOTBALL CLUB. In another column we publish a report of a meeting held at East Barry on Friday evening last in connection with the proposed establish- ment of an united football club for Barry and Cadoxton. We have already commended the movement to the favourable notice of the public, and we sincerely hope that nothing in the form of opposition will now be raised on the part of those from whom the promoters may particularly look for support and co- operation. There was, we are sorry to state, something of the nature of antipathy amongst a few of the members of the Barry Club present at the meeting referred to, but we trust, in the best interests of the good old national game, that this unfortunate feeling will at once be nipped in the bud, and that the general body of footballers in Barry and Cadoxton will joitn hands in a determined effort to form a club worthy of so progressive a district. If the united club is to be a suc- cess, it must of necessity be composed both of playing and subscribing friends from all parts of the district, and nothing but hearty and undivided co-operation can make the move- ment a success. We were glad to see such gentlemen as Messrs W. H. Morgan, W. M. Douglas, R. G. Morris, T. H. Morgan, W. Murphy, J. Tobin, and other prominent figures in local football present at Friday evening's meeting, and although unable to be present themselves on that occasion there are other gentlemen in the district who are equally concerned in the formation of the proposed club, for, shortly after the conclusion of the meeting, a letter from Mr R. T. Duncan, of The Buttrills, was handed to the chairman, and it is a pity, we think, it did not arrive in time to be read to those present. Mr Duncan's letter was a healthy and en- couraging one, and read as follows :â€” Barry Dock, July 31, 1891. DEAR MR. DOUGLAS,â€”I have your note of yes- terday, and very much regret that I shall be unable to attend your meeting to-night. The idea of amalgamating the two clubs is, I think, a very good one, and nas my hearty support. An effort should be made to turn out a first-class XV. for next season. If I can be of any use to you kindly let me know. Yours very truly, R. T. DUNCAN.

Thomas Cawsey and Frederick Brent, trading as Cawsey and Brent, at Cadoxton-Barry, Glamorganshire, builders, have dissolved partnership. A FREAK OF NATURE.â€”A certain woman in Cadoxton has just given birth to twins. She was similarly confined in February of last year, making a total of four children in less than eighteen months. The little family is doing well. MR. D. M. HAMER.â€”We regret to learn that our young townsman and musical friend, Mr D. M. Hamer, has left Cadoxton altogether. As a vocalist of no mean order he made many friends and admirers during his residence in this town. THE ACCOUNTS OF THE BARRY ESTATE COMPANY, LIMITED.â€”Messrs Squance and Son, of Sunder- land, audited the accounts of the Barry Estate Company, Limited, for the year ending June 30th on Wednesday last, at the secretary's office at Cadoxton.

The Rev Canon Roberts, of Penarth, (the present canon-in- residence at Llandati Cathedral), will preach at the Welsh Church Mission Room (Club Room, Royal Hotel, in. this town), on Sunday evening, the 16th instant. MERTHYR AND DOWLAIS BUILDING SOCIETY.â€” We understand that Mr David Jones, of the firm of D. Jones and Company, house agents, &c., in this town, has been appointed local agent to the Mertbyr nd Dowlais Building Society, in succes- sion to Mr L. Lewis, resigned. RESIGNATION OF A MEMBER OF THE SCHOOL BOARD. -We are authoritatively informed that Mr Oliver Jenkins, New House, Cadoxton, contem- plates resigning his seat on the Barry (U.D.) School Board. This course Mr Jenkins finds necessary owing to pressure of private business. AMALGAMATED LABOURERS' UNION.â€”At yester- day's session of the delegates of the above Union, at Newport, Mr Thomas J. O'Keefe, of Cardiff, was advanced from the position of district secretary to that of organiser. Previous to his removal to Cardiff Mr O'Keefe resided at Cadox- ton-Barry. HOLIDAY OUTING.-The teachers of the Sunday school and members of the choir of the English Wesleyan Chapel, in this town, paid a holiday visit to Llantwit Major, and the weather being fine the trip was fully enjoyed. Further references are made to the trip, under the head of Llantwit Major, in another column. SIR CHARLES DILKE AND THE DEAN FOREST. The Rev Hugh Price Hughes (brorher to Arthur Hughes, solicitor, Cadoxton), Mr W. T. Stead, and other gentlemen will shortly address meetings in the Forest of Dean in opposition to the candidature of Sir Charles Dilke, Bart. The ground of opposition is purely one of morality. THE ELEMENTS WERE WITH us.-It will comfort the thousands of holiday-makers who got drenched in the succession of heavy showers which fell at Cardiff about five o'clock on Monday last (bank holiday) to know that not a drop of r&in fell at Cadoxton until after dusk, and the eisteddfod, concert, and picnic parties in the district were most successful. HE DIED HALF-A-CENTURY BEFORE HIS WIFE.â€” In the porch of Cadoxton Parish Church there is the memorial stone of a man and wife, upwards of half-a-century having elapsed between the death of one and the other, the latter dying in her hundredth year. The inscription on the stone is TUT Langton, of this parish, died May 30th, 1705, aged 44. Annie, wife of the above, died 13th January, 1760, aged 99." PRIZE MEETING OF THE GUN CLUB.â€”The mem- bers of the Cardiff Gun Club will hold their open- ing meeting on Monday afternoon next, com- mencing at two o'clock, at the Witchill Athletic Grounds, Barry-road, in this town, when a challenge cup of the value of thirty guineas will be shot for. Ten birds will be allowed each com- petitor, handicap by distance. Open sweepstakes will follow the shooting for the challenge cup. PICNIC TO EMPLOYEES.â€”On Tuesday last the employees, about 24 in number, of the firm of Messrs Jones Bros., proprietors of the Taff Furni- ture Vans, Cadoxton, Barry Dock, and Penarth, were entertained to an outing to Porthcawl. The party started from Holton in a large brake sup- plied by Mr B. Hoddinott, of the Witchill Hotel, Cadoxton, and on reaching Porthcawl after a pleasant drive the company partook of a sumptuous repast at the Assembly Rooms. After dinner the usual toasts were proposed and heartily responded to, that of Success to the firm of Jones Bros. being proposed by Mr Williams, one of the employees, and suitably acknowledged by Mr John Jones. The latter gentleman occupied the chair on the occasion, and Mr E. Woodham, Barry Dock, the vice-chair. The day's proceed- ings were much enjoyed, home bei og reached again during the small hours of Wednesday morning. ENTERTAINMENT AT THE WESLEYAN CHAPEL.- An entertainment was held on Wednesday even. ing, the 29th ultimo, at the English Wesleyan Chapel, in this town. There was a good attend- ance, and the chair was occupied by Mr J. J. Moon, of East Barry. A good programme of literary and musical selections was gone through, the accompanists being Miss Lewis, Barry, with Miss Paul and Mr J. Penglaze, Cadoxton. Those who took part during the evening included the following:â€”Miss Wild, Miss Lewis (Main-street), Mrs Harris, Miss Smith, Miss Spears, Miss Watkins, Mr T. Davies (Main-street), Mr Davies (Upper Main-street), Mr H. Carter, together with the choir of the chapel, under the leadership of Mr T. Davies. A vote of thanks to the chairman and others was passed at the close of a very en- joyable entertainment. We regret being unable at the last moment to obtain a copy of the pro- aramme. SUDDEN DEATH OF MR. T. M. THOMAS, COLE- BROOK.-We are sorry to chronicle this week in our obituary column the death of Mr Thomas Morgan Thomas, Colebrook Farm, near this town, which sad event took place, with painful sudden- ness, on Friday night last, at the early age of 33 years. Deceased was taken ill on the previous Wednesday, and Dr O'Donnell having been called in he was found to be suffering from inflammation of the bowels, the attack increasing in severity until Friday night, when he died. Mr Thomas was a native of Glanrywys, near Kidwelly, Car- marthenshire, and during the time he had resided in th-s district he made many friends, his dis- position being habitually calm and unobtrusive. Deceased was for some years churchwarden of the parish of Cadoxton, and only resigned the appoint- ment last Easter. The funeral of the deceased took place on Tuesday, his mortal remains being interred in the Parish Churchyard in the presence of a numerous assembly of relatives and friends. The Rector and Curate officiated on the occasion, and Messrs D. Spickett and Son, Cadoxton-Barry, were very efficient undertakers. ARTISTIC LOCAL PAINTINGS, Our talented
