AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [BY A WELSH FARMER.] DURING a portion of the past week it has been possible to make better progress with harvesting- than at any previous time since the work of cut- tino- commenced. A large quantity of corn has been carted, in tolerable condition as far as dryness is concerned, although more or less injured in quality by the unseasonable weather of August. On rubbing out wheat from blackened ears, we are glad to find that the grain is le"s discoloured than might have been feared. As a lule. it is rather thin and mis-shapen, and some of it is shrivelled but it is in many cases of a fair colour, and not much sprouted. So far as we have been able 15 determine by actual examination, the wheat cut early is in better condition than that left standing—or lying—until last week. and, of course, the former has lost much less grain from shedding than the latter. The damage done to the corn crops is great. Still, should we be fortunate enough to have fine weather for the rest of September, the bulk of the grain will be marketable. Barley is, of course, more or less, stained, as a rule. and a great deal has been lost by shedding probably it has suffeied more than wheat from a market point of view. Oats, on the other hand, if they can be thoroughly dried, will be the least injured of the cereaiS. Peas, owing to the opening of the pods, have lost yield to a serious extent.—Ajru-ultnnil (iuzvttc. Two estimates of the world's crops have just been published, one by the Hungarian Minister of Agriculture and the other by the authorities of the Vienna International Market Conference. The first represents the total wheat production of the world this year as from 250 to 285 million quarters, or 15 to 17 million quarters below aver- age, and the rye crop of the world as 120 to 124 million quarters, or 31 to 34 millions below aver- age. There is necessarily a good deal of guessing in the figures which make up these totals but. taking them for what they are worth, they tend to. confirm general impressions of a great scarcity of rye and a considerable one of wheat. The other estimate consists of percentages of an average yield for each of the principal cereals, and it is to a great extent confir- matory of the first, though less easy to bring to a focus. A correspondent recently wrote to Mr. Gladstone oal"ng his attention to the Wisbech election, as. in his opinion, an evidence that the agricultural; labourer still relied upon the Liberal party to work out Hodge's political salvation. The cor- respondent also urged Mr. Gladstone to express a word of hope to the labourer. Mr. Gladstone re- plied :—" You may rest assured that the Liberal party, who in the teeth of the House of Lords pro- cured the franchise for the agricultural labourer. did not thus arm him for nothing, and hope to do him full justice in the first place by bring- ing local government to his door, and securing for him a more free access to the use of the land." ALLOTMENT PRIZES IN LINCOLNSHIRE.—In several districts of Lincolnshire prizes have been awarded to the allotment holders for the cultiva- tion of their plots of land. In the Spalding dis- trict, where the allotment movement has made great progress, the judges have just made their awards in connection with allotments granted by the Spalding Improvement Board, the prizes having been offered at the beginning of the year by a member of the Board. The land is said to be cultivated in a very excellent manner, and the crops procured exceptionally good in most cases. At Gedney Hill, in the Spalding division, prizes have been awarded the labourers, and the Long Sutton Agricultural Society have an allotment department this year in connection with their forthcoming show. LATE HARVESTS.—A correspondent, writing to the Standard on this subject, says It may be interesting to your readers to know that in North Hants, in I860, we began cutting wh-*at on August 27th, the first day's carting on September 5th. There was about a fortnight's fair weather, and then continuous wet. so that our harvest was not completed until the end of October. Some of the beans in the neighbourhood of Odiham were not carted until nearly Christmas. I saw one of the carters from there about that time, and asked the question, Have you finished harvest yet ?" and he replied," We could have finished to-day, but we wanted to finish wheat sowing first.. THE HARVEST IX IRELAND.—The Fnrman,x Jtmrn/il publishes reports on the state of the crops from Waterford, Longford, Kildare, Cavan, Ros- common, Galway, Kilkenny, Carlow, Monaghan, Tipperary and Clare. All. without exception, are of the most unfavourable character, and represent the crops as almost irretrievably ruined by the recent rains. THE RESIGNATION by Miss Ormerod of her post of consulting entomologist to the Royal Agricul- tural Society is a subject of much comment by the Press generally this week. The conduct of the officials of the society in the matter is severely ■censured. Considering the valuable services ren- dered by this lady in preventing or remedying the ravages of insect and fungoid pests on our crops, she seems to have met with but scant recognition at the hands of those to whom her services were most directly rendered. AGRICULTURAL BENEVOLENT INSTITUTION. Mr. Walter Gilbev has just made his annual appeal for donations and collections at harvest festivals in aid of this institution. The record of this society is net a bad one. Since the year of this society's formation in 1860. it h,as paid in pensions close upon a quarter of a million sterling. At the present moment it has on its books 826 pensioners, who are provided for at an annual cost of £17,390, while there are some 300 farmers or farmers' widows who are still waiting election. If we could add an extra £ 5.000 or ;( 6.000 to this year's harvest festival collections, most of these waiters st the gates might be taken in. The secretary is Mr. C. B. Snow, 26. Charles-street. St. James's. London. From the fact that the beneficiaries of this fund are those who have largely worn them- selves out in the scraping together of tithes, it is to be hoped that our local tithe-receivers will respond to this appeal at their forthcoming festi- vals. They ought to.
YSTRAD SCHOOL BOARD. The ordinary meeting of the Ystradyfodwg School Board was held on Friday last at the Board's offices. rentre. The chair was occupied by Mr. W. W. Hood, and amongst the other members present were—tlu Revs. W. Morris (vice-chair- man), W. Lewis, and W. Jones, Messrs. Alderman W. Morgan. Aide-man W. Jenkins, D. W. Wil- liams, and J. G Howell (clerk).—Mr. W. Lewis Was appointed hea 1 master of the higher grade school. On the motion of the Rev. Morris, seconded by the Rev. W. Jones, Miss Emily Ed- wards. Tylorstown, was appointed head mistress of the higher grade girls' school. Several assist- ant teachers were transferred from one school to the other, and Miss E. Pengelly was appointed as- sistant mistress at the higher grade school. Miss •Collins was temporarily appointed assistant mis- tress also: and it was decided to advertise for others. The Clerk said that the grants earned by the different schools were as follows Blaenrhondda, £201 5s Oc. Ynyswen. £370 2s. Od.: Ystrad, C 100 17s. Od.: Ton. £ 742 17s Od.: Bcdringallt, .£420 16s.

The reports of the Her Majesty s Inspector were also most satisfactory, ihe Clerk Reported that he had sent out a Welsh and English circular to every parent explaining the iree Education Act; that the building committee thought the ground rent of Tylorstown School should be reduced and complained ot the over crowding at Cwm Clydach.—It was proposed to advertise for another attendance officer, the attendance having fallen an: low as 71 per cent.—Rev. W. Morris moved that the i matter be postponed—Alderman W. Jenkins se- conded. and it was carried unanimously.—The Finance Committee's report showed that a sum of £1.725 15s. lid. had been paid, and that the bal- ance in hand was AIs90 2s. 5d.—Alderman Jenkins pointed out that some years ago the Board under- took to take over the schools at Llw ynypia, and it seemed that at present the managers of these schools were willing.—The Rev. W. Morris pro- posed, and Rev. W. Jones seconded, that the archi- tect be authorised to make a valuation of the schools, and that, subject to approval of the archi- tect and the Education Department, the schools bo taken over.—The motion was carried unani- mously.

SERIOUS CASE OF WOUNDING AT BARRY DOCK. On Monday last, at the Penarth Police-court, before Mr. J. Pyke Thompson (chairman) and Major Thornley, William Copham. labourer, and an army reserve man, was charged with unlawfully wounding Mary Bailey at Barry Dock on Saturday, SCMarybBailey, whose head was bandaged, said that she was a married woman, but was living apart from her husband at 25, Wood-street, Barry Dock. On Saturday night she was going down Thompson-street to do some shopping with three other women. She saw prisoner and some other men committing a nuisance on the road. She told them they ought to be ashamed of themselves, and prisoner said that he would blind her if she said it again. Will you she answered, and with that the prisoner picked up a stone and threw it at her. She did not remember anything after that. This took place about nine o'clock in the evening. Cross-examined by prisoner, she said she did not tbrow some stones first.-Dr. Livingstone, M.D Barry Dock, said he had attended the complainant at her house in 25, Wood-street, on Saturday night. He found her in a semi-conscious state, and bleed- ing profuselv. There was one lacerated wound over the cheek bone, another incised wound over the left eye, and a bruise on the right parietal bone. The plaintiff had also lost one or two teeth. The wound over the cheek-bone, which was the largest was about an inch long, and not very deep, and was of such a nature that it might have been caused by a stone or a severe blow. The incised wound might have been caused by a blow or a fall.-Cttherine Fitzgerald, single, living at 25, Wood-street, and Mary Connance. 31, Wood-street, corroborated the evidence of the first witness. Police constable John Phillips deposed to arresting the prisoner, taking him to the station, and charging him with the offence. Prisoner said, a I'll say nothing now."—The prisoner said that the women had begun by throwing stones at him, and he threw one stone at them, which hit Mrs. Bailey. The Bench said that these brutal attacks were on the increase, and, as this was a most serious case, they had determined to make an example of it. They had thought at first of inflicting the full penalty, but as this was prisoner's first offence they would only sentence him to four months' imprisonment, with hard labour.
PENARTH POLICE COURT. MONDAY.—Before Mr. J. Pyke Thompson (chair- man) and Major Thornley. SUMMONS. — Summons were granted against Thomas Davies and Wm. Reeves (both of Cadox- ton), for using threats against Geo. Griffiths, and assaulting Elvira Jones respectively. A summons was also granted to Edward May against Police- constable H. A. Headen (319) for assaulting a lad named Wm. May, and threatening the complain- ant. ASSAULTING THE POLICE. — James Emerson, sometime member of the police force, was charged by Police-constable Hussey with assaulting him outside the Blue Anchor Hotel, Aberthaw, while in the execution of his duty.-Prisoner said he had been drinking, and that he had struck the con- stable in self-defence.—Fined 10s. or seven days. DRUNK AND DISORDERLY.—James Sullivan and Michael Smith were charged, on remand, with being drunk and disorderly at Cadoxton. The details have already appeared.—The prisoners, who pleaded guilty, were fined 5s. or five days.—Owen Bowen. who was charged with the same offence at Penarth, was fined 5s. ATTENDANCE CASES.—Five attendance ca«es were heard, and fines were in some cases inflicted. A MEAN FELLOW.—Thomas Davies sued Alfred Lewis for 18s. 2d. wages alleged to be due. It transpired, however, that defendant had given plaintiff 10s. to pay a fine at the Cadoxton police- cou-t on July, another five shillings on tht 29th Aug .c.a pair of boots valued at r>s.. 5s. on Septem- ber 3rd at the Cardiff Horse Show, and a bottle of medicine worth :->s.—Case dismissed. ASSAULT.—The adjourned case of Mary Ann Wilson and her husband was again adjourned, the female plaintiff failing to :put in an ap- pearance. A Row AMONG THE DONKEYS.—John Xorman charged Joseph Rees, inspector of the Esplanade, with°assault. There was a cross summons against Norman and his wife.-X orman said that Rees had stopped the donkeys from the Esplanade on Mabon's Day. September 7th. He (X orman) had had permission from Messrs. Cornwell and Bevan. members of the board, to do so. He therefore told the boys to take the donkeys into the Esplanade. Rees pushed him down twice or three times, and he (witness) then struck Rees.—Inspector Rees said that he had given orders that no donkeys be allowed on the Esplanade on the 7th inst., as there were some two or three thousands of people there. He stopped Norman. who encouraged the donkey boys to go on. When witness persisted, Norman struck him in the face. and he (witness) pushed Xorman backwards. Norman's wife then tried to claw" his face, but did not succeed.—James Buckland, donkey driver, corroborated.-The cases against Elizabeth Norman were dismissed, and John Norman was ordered to pay 10s. and costs. THEFT.—Styma Coleman, Regent-street, Barry Dock was cha.ged with stealing a bag from the Victoria Hotel, Holton. en Saturday last, the pro- perty of Amelia Parsons, 13, Evan-street, Holton. Mrs* Parsons said she went to the Victoria about 4.30 p.m. on Saturday afternoon last with a bag containing cabbage, potatoes, a tea-fish, and a jug, of the total value of Is. 3d. She put the bag on the window-sill, but as the crowd was great, she went out to a, draper's shop. She returned in about three minutes, and could not find the bag. She then gave information to the police and saw the bag again at the Police-station on Saturday night. She identified -the bag pro- duced as the one she had lost. She saw the prisoner in the hotel when she put the bag on the sill. When she returned prisoner had gone.— Annie Lapping. 13 years old, living at 17, Richard- street, Holton. said'that she was at the Victoria Hotel at half-past four, and saw plaintiff coming in with a bag in her hand. Prisoner was there at the time drinking liquor. When plaintiff went out she saw prisoner seize the bag and go out. When Mrs. Parsons returned witness told her what took place.—Police-constable John Phillips deposed to arresting prisoner. When taken to the station and charged with theft, she replied that the bag belonged to her.—Mrs. Matilda Stack, wife of Peter Stack. 13. Evan-street, said plaintiff lodged with her. The jug produced was hers. She last saw it about four o'clock on Saturday last, when she gave it to Mrs. Parsons to fetch beer.- Prisoner, whose English was remarkably good. volubly protested her innocence, and said that the case was a concocted one, and that she was wronged—cruelly wronged.—The Bench, however, found her guilty, and fined her 2.-)S., or 14 days.

THE BOSTON MINSTRELS AT CADOXTON. On Friday and Saturday night last, the Boston Minstrels, with twenty star artistes, p ,;d their first visit to Barry. They played to crowded audiences each night at the Market-hall, Cadoxton. The first part of the programme consisted of comic songs, ballads, plantation songs, and talks," which were hugely appreciated. The comic men at the sides afforded a lot of amusement, and the finale Boston Grenadiers," was given with im- mense spirit and effect. In the second part, Mr Chew drew rounds of applause by his Cocky imitations. Mr. Olrac ate fire with w onderful impunity, Mr. Kemble was screamingly funny in his burlesque scena A la Patti," and Mr. Le Monte's marvellous quick changes were most astonishing. Appended is the programme:— Part I. Overture, Boston Minstrels comic song, The Golden Wedding," Fred Adams song, The ship that carries me home," Mr. Victor Chew plantation song, Meet you at the Golden Gate," Mr. Jake Stuart ballad, "Leonotel" Mr. Willis Boatman plantation melody, Hallelujah," Willie Coney; song, Swinging on the Golden Gate," Mr. Fred Olrac comic song, Whistling Coon," Mr. Billy Taylor ballad, Noreen Moreen," Mr. Harry Beaumont; first part finale, "Boston Grenadiers." Part JI. Mr. F. T. Chew, inimitable mimic; Brothers Hadley, eccentric song and dance OlrRc and Taylor, in their speciality act, Engaged"; Brothers Hadley, Hungarian top boot dance Mr. William H. Cony, the social reformer, will speak a few words Le Monte, in his marvellous quick change impersona- tions burlesque scena, A la Patti," H. J. Kemble (Boston Minstrels' Prima Donna) Stuart, Adams, and Cony (the Big 3), in one <_ ? their screamingly funny burlesques. Mr. P. R. James is to be congratulated on securing such an excellent combination, and great credit is due to Messrs. Watts and Stuart, the musical director and the stage manager.
GENERAL NEWS. MR. AND MRS. STANLEY.—Mr. and Mrs. Stanley will arrire at Ostend on tl-e 2nd of October, on a. visit to King Leopold, on the conclusion of which it is understood they will embark for Australia. MR. DE COBAIN.—It is announced that Mr. De has decided to return to Belfast and meet the charge made against him. Mr. De Cobain is now in Boulogne. M. GBEVY.—M. Grévy, the late President of the French Republio, who resigned a. few years ago in consequence of the Wilson scandals, died last week. A State funeral has been arranged for him. M. Grevy lired and died a Freethinker. MR. J. H. WILSON.—At a meeting of the Li- beral two hundred" of Deptford Liberal Associa- tion on Thursday last, Mr. J. H. Wilson was accepted as Liberal Democratic candidate for the Parliamentary borough of Deptford by a majority of 60, The figures were 89 for, and 24 against, three abstaining from voting. AN ENGLISH LADY BOUNTIFUL" DISAP- PEARS.—The wealthy Miss Alva, who has been for some time engaged in philanthropic work among. the poorest classes in Chicago, has suddenly disap- peared, and it is feared that she has been murdered for the sake of the money which she carried about her person for necessitous cases. THE BISHOP OV ST. ASAPH AND HIS VOTE.— Strange things happen, and among the strangest happened the other day at the St. Asaph Revision Court, when the Liberals objected to the vote of Dr. Edwards, the bishop of the diocese. The Liberal agent said he would withdraw the objec- tion, ItS the Bishop had not yet taken hit: seat in the House of Lords. The Revising Barrister allowed the vote. A NEW DETECTIVE INSTRUMENT.—The Rev. G. H. Lock, a well-known Xonconformist minister, has just written a letter dealing with the mys- terious murder of a farmer's daughter, named Layley, at Preston, near Hull, stating that a com- plete and detailed description of the tragedy has been obtained by means of clairvoyance, in the presence of eminently qualified witnesses. Inter- viewed by a pressman. Mr. Lock said it was quite: true, but. for obvious reasons, declined to communi- cate the details. MR. BURT.—Mr. Burt is a man of anything but an aggressive personality indeed, he is the most modest and retiring of men—so much so that there were some doubts as to how he would cope with the turbulent element over which he was called to preside at Newcastle. The result, however, has shown him to be al capital chairman. His trans- parent sincerity and his good humoured way of mixing firmess and chaff have been equal to every emergency. THE XATIVE MANUFACTURERS' CRY.—Ohio Re- publicans had lately taken to wearing in their coats a tin button bearing a lihnes8 of McKinley, and the words "American T:n" as a campaign badge. It has just been learned that the buttons were made in Swarsea, and in consequence they are rapidly disappearing. Good old Taffy If he can't sell his tinplates otherwise, he will convert them into portraits of h's greatest enemy and sell them to his followers. Is this an instance of "spoiling the Egyptians," or of the lamb. who is. we are assured by Pope, ready to lick the hand prepared to shed his blood P O'DONOVAN ROSSA.—In 1871 O'Donovan Rossa was liberated from Chatham prison and "shipped" to America on condition that he did not return to this side of the Atlantic for twenty years. That period has now expired, and Rossa is anxious once more to visit his native land. He has been apply- ing to Mr. Blaine for a passport, but the United States Secretary has refused to guarantee his free- dom from arrest, We are all familiar with Rossa's ravings against England, but we are not so familiar with the tale of his sufferings, which Mr. Davitt has told to a shuddering world. Whether his sufferings for his country's cause entitle him to a safe conduct is another question. A man who at the safe distance of Xew York preaches a gospel of cruel and cowardly outrage in England, and who thinks nothing of mangling half a dozen nurse maids or orangewomen, if he can at the same time blow a bit out of the back of Downing-street, had better, perhaps, stop where he is and direct his tender feelings into another. channel. A "FRANCISCAN" VICAR.—The new Vicar of St. James's, Wolverhampton, the Rev. Henry V. Stuart, has issued a novel address to the parishioners. He says that while working in a manufacturing district of the Potteries, he became convinced that the only way to reach the people was by living a simple, self-sacrificing life, like their own. He had. therefore, lived with a work- man's family for the last two years as one of themselves, and he meant to live in the same way at the rectory. The rectory was bigger than the cottage, but inside the life will be as much as possible the same, and he hoped by living in a simple way to be able to afford himself the assist- ance of some more fellow-workers. In his house no distinction of class would be maintained, and he hoped that all his parishioners would freely come for symyathyor assist- ancc-nnc1 always by the front door.. We remember Sir William Hunter saying once that the only way to impress our Indian brothers with the earnestness of our Christianity was by living a life of self-abnegation, thinking nothing of the things of this world, and giving everything for nothing. Mr. Stuart seems imbued with the same idea. and no one who knows anything of the success of the Franciscans, Jesuits, and others who renounced every worldly thing. can doubt of the success of a mission carried on in such a way. One is tempted to turn to our haughty prelates, lolling in luxurious ease in their carriages, and say. Go ye and do likewise. Sell all that ye have and give to the poor." We are afraid that they would go their way sorrowing, for "they have great possessions." FOLLICK'S is the Best Shop for Jewellery. Splendid assortment and at all prices.
