To play through life a perfect part, Unnoticed and unknown To seek no rest in any heart, Save only God's alone In little things to own no will, To have no share in great. To find the labour ready still, And for the crown to wait. Upon the brow to bear no trace Of more than common care, To write no secret in the face For men to read it there. The daily cross to clasp and bless With such familiar zeal As hides from all, but not the less, The daily weight you feel. In toils that praise will never pay, To see your life go past, To meet in every coming day Twin sister of the last To hear of high heroic things, And yield them reverence due, But feel life's daily offerings Are far more fit for you. To woo no secret soft disguise, To which self-love is prone, Unnoticed by all other eyes, Unworthy in your own To yield withsuchahnppyart, That no one thinks you care, And say to your poor bleeding heart "How little can you bear!" o 'tis a pathway hard to choose, A struggle hard to share. For human pride would still refuse The nameless trials to bear But since we know the gate is low That leads to heavenly bliss, What higher grace can God bestow Than such a life as this ?
CORRESPONDENCE. CONSERVATISM AT LLANTWIT-MAJOR. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAB. SIR,—To deal more fully with the above, and especially the ill-bred attempt of your correspond- ent in making what may be termed mountains out of mole "heaps," I still hold and leave the challenge open (to him or her. as the case may be) to apply their knowledge unto wisdom, and to t irn it in th3 direction of their own camp before attempting to criticise that which is supreme to your correspondent's principles. "He that is without a fault cast the first stone. As to purchasing a cheap grammar I will leave it to those who can devote the time to its studies, which, I have no doubt, your correspondent has ample and to spare. I have duties to attend, and which, in a financial direction, will benefit me far greater than by studying the art of litera- ture. As regards attaining a position amongst pressmen (whom I know and respect), I am not at all anxious for it, especially if any of them are tarred with the same brush as your Llantwit- Major correspondent. In conclusion, Mr. Editor, I am extremely thankful to you for favouring me with space in your widely-circulated paper, and should I deem it fit upon any other occasion to defend the grand Constitutional cause, I trust you will receive it in the same spirit, and deem it worthy of insertion. If this correspondence is to continue I ask once more for his or her name as a guarantee of good faith.—I am, &c., JOHN DEERE. Jun., Secretary to the Llantwit-Major and District "Association and Reading Room. Llantwit-Major, September 21st, 1891. BARRY CHORAL UNION. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. SIR.—Will you kindly allow me A small space in which to endorse the opinion of Mr. Farr m last week's Star as to the urgent necessity ot a Choral Union for the districts of Barry and Cadoxton ? As he points out, it would be bene- ficial in many respects, and congregational singing throughout the district would thereby recene considerable assistance. So far so good, but I have a slight improvement to suggest. It is this, that the formation of a Philharmonic Society would be much more desirable, and that for many and obvious reasons. In most new places, such as Barry, there is generally, to be found an abundance of tenor and bass while the female portion is very deficient as regards numbers. It was so with Barry until latelv, when an improvement in this respect took place by the addition of good and reliable soprano voices, which quite counterbalances the surpris- ingly high standard of tenor and bass. As has lateiy been demonstrated. Barry is second to none in the above-mentioned essentials, the only apparent deficiency being a scarcity of good altos. It'transpires that young women who have good alto voices ke(1) that knowledge to themselves, as they consider it a minor part, fit only to be performed by children. It is not bv any means a minor consideration. On the contrarv. Eos Morlais, whom I consider one of our chief judges on matters appertaining, gives it as his unqualified opinion that alto constitutes the essence of choral singing. In the face of this I think it a crying pity that those who possess such a gift should keep back for a scruple which is proved a myth. Singing is a glorious and eleva- ting pastime, and I feel sure that Barry, which has displaved in so short a time such abundance of talent, should not be backward in the matter of energy, but go right onward and make its mark. Mr. Farr. presumably from a sense of modesty, refrained in his letter from making any remarks as to conductorship. I. therefore, think it only fair on my part to say that Mr. Farr. as well as being well versed in theoretical singing, is, as regards instru- mental music, better than one here and there," and an accomplished player on the 'cello. I should be delighted to heir of his conducting a good society and. as a Barryite. nothing would please me better than to see Barry making a name in the annals of music.—I am, sir. yours, ko., PLATO. Barry. o THE RUSSIAN EMPEROR AND OUR SEAMEN. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES STAR. SIE, The Duke of Fife, who presided over our 73rd annual meeting, held last May. in the Fish mongers' Hall. writes to say. that during his recent visit to Copenhagen he spoke to the Emperor of Russia on the question of the world-wide work of this Societv. and the desire of the seamen to have established a Seamen's Institute at St. Petersburg, and posssiuly in other Russian ports. The Duke says. His Majesty has kindly consented to become patron of the branch of the British and Foreign Sailors' Society you propsse to establish in St. Petersburg, and has sent a communication on the subject to the Russian Ambassador in London." That communication is just to hand and reads thus The Imperial Russian Embassy has been directed by the Minister for Foreign Affairs. at St. Petersburg, to announce to the British and Foreign Sailors' Society that His Majesty the Emperor has been graciously pleased to aceeed to the Society's solicitation of taking under his august patronage those institutions which the Society propose to establish in the Russian Empire, and the under- signed has creat pleasure in communicating the above to the Society named." We wish to express through your great medium the heartfelt thanks of the friends of this Society, and of our seamen everywhere for this sympathy and support of the Cztr. of that mighty empire. For it is not too much to say that hundreds, of thousands of British seamen alone annually visit the ports of Russia. And if this year there will be fewer visiting the southern ports, we trust in the good Providence of God. Russia will soon again have abundant harvests. It has long been felt that if the claims and conditions of seamen could only be brought before the kind-hearted Czar and Czarina, who. like our own Princess of Wales, have the generous impulses for such a work of charity. that they would heartily respond. For it is well known to some, that many of the charities of Russia find tender and hearty supporters in the Empress and her husband. In the days of the Emperor's father, who has now entered into his rest, and very early in the century some of our most able and devoted shipmasters visited the Baltic and other Russian ports, where, without let or hindrance they hoisted their Bethel flag and gathered their crews together for a simple service. Many of the sons and descendants of these splendid sailors are to day some of our best shipowners and masters. Mr. George Lidgett. whose father hoisted our flag in the Baltic, and others could tell thrill- ing tales of these Baltic ports. In the archives of the Society there are constant references to those early days. As far back as 1821 one of these captains reports in our Sailors' Maga- zine that at Riga he had hoisted the Society's Bethel flag, and news of the ga' h wrings of the sea- men had reached St. Petersburg, and it is printed in italics that on Friday next, the Lord permit- ting. a branch of the Society is to be formed in this port, a minister is expected from St. Peters- burg with permission from the Emperor Alexander for its formation, and Prince Gulitzth will be solicited to become the president of the Society. And who can tell but that He who seeth not as man seeth may cause this small beginning to become instrumental in the formation of a society at the important station of St. Petersburg." Sailors such as these are still members of this Society. In fact Captain Wiggins, F.R.G.S., well- known to the royal family and government of Russia, who first entered the Kara Sea, and since successfully navigated the Yenisei River for some 2,000 miles, is a director of this Society. He has nothing but kindness to speak of the way he has been treated in Russia. This brave but simple- hearted sailor, on his first voyage, battling against terrific forces, gathered his exhausted crew under the Society's flag on a Sunday morning, to ask the Divine protection and blessing, and his seamen, sick at heart, under the stimulus of a gospel ad- dress by this splendid sailor, voted to go forward, Which they did to victory. Sir Robert Morier s (Her Majesty's Ambas sador at S:. Petersburg) letter on this sailor and his successes is one of the most interesting State Papers ever sent to the Foreign Office. At the great meeting referred to the United States Minister. Mr. Robert Lincoln, proposed a resolution which closed with these Words: and this meeting hopes that St. Peters- burg will soon be added to the Society's European stations." It is therefore appropriate that now a branch of this Society with a Seamen's Institute should be formed at St. Petersburg. For the great merchant ships which once discharged at Cronstadt now press on to St. Peters! nr-r. and this port will doubtless grow more and more in importance. The seamen themselves visiting the port petitioned the Empress for her favour in this matter and this Society to help. The Duke of Fife thoroughly mastered the sailors' position, and finely gaid "We who live at home at our ease perhaps hardly realise the fact that in most eases our sailors have no home on shore. When a man has a home and family of his own, he is rarely able to enjoy them because in the course of the voyage his ship will touch at many ports before she return home, and at many of those ports the sailor would naturally like to relieve the monotony of his life hy going on shore, where he is generally sur- rounded by every abominable temptation he is instantly seized upon by vile creatures, and his very honesty and very frankness make him a prey, and very often an easy prey to the designing scoundrels, who dog his footsteps and rob him of his hard-earned wages." This fact was powerfully illustrated in the terrible wreck of the magnificent ship, Irex," under the high cliff at the Needles. The loss of life and rescue will be long remembered. Those shipwrecked men saved from the perils of the deep (six of them) were presented to the Queen, and received Her Majesty's bounty. Others also gave gifts of clothing and money. One of these men on arriving in London after a marvellous escape was. on the very first night set upon by crimps, and not only robbed but his face was beaten almost out of recognition. The Duke closed his admirable summary of the Society's various operations by saying, I will mention one more figure which seems to me to speak volumes for the humanising and civilising efforts of this Society, and that is this, the attendances at the Reading-rooms last year were no less than 141,461." To show how seaman will take the advantage of such a place of refuge on shore, 1,000 blue jackets slept in the little Sailor's Home just established by the Society at Monte Video during last April and Mav. Thanks principally to the generosity of Louisa Lady Ashburton our new Seamen's Institute will be opened in the Millwall Docks before the end of the year, and the Society has had its hands very full in South American, European, and other ports. But armed with the Emperor's distinguished patronage, the Board will send its secretary to St. Petersburg at the opportune time to organise the branch with its institute there, and asks with con- fidence for the support which has never been withheld in such a worthy extension and depar- ture. One of the society's vice-president, Mr. John Cory, of Cardiff, immediately said he would sub- scribe £ 50 towards such a useful project. Special donations are always necessary to successfully inaugurate such a work of humanity and charity. But when once accomplished there will be no diffi- culty in modestly carrying it on. He who called fishermen, and forever enobled the sailor's calling, said. I was a stranger and he took Me in." Sea- men are generally strangers in the ports they visit, and of many of them it will be said in royal kingly words, "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren ye have done it unto Me." Contributions might be sent for St. Peters- burg branch to the society's treasurer.

MISSION WORK IN SPAIN. LECTURE AT BARRY. A highly interesting lecture was delivered in the Wesleyan Chapel. Barry, on Friday evening, by Madame Rodriguez, on the Evangelistic Mission carried on in Figueras. N.E. of Spain, with which her husband and herself have been associated for some years. The lecture was illustrated with magic lantern views. Mr. Windsor, of Cardiff, having kindly rendered his services with the lime-light lantern for the occasion. The spacious chapel was well filled, and great intestest was evinced through- out. & Mr. John Cory, J.P., the chairman, in intro- ducing the lecturer to her audience, remarked that they were greatly privileged in having such honoured Christian workers with them that even- ing as Pastor and Madame Rodriguez, who were now on a tour through the principal towns to en- list the sympathy of the country in Christian work in Spain. The Figueras Evangelistic Mis- sion, so-called from the town of Figueras. was the centre of their operation?, which extend throusrh- out the province of Gerona. It is carried on in faith, and entirely supported by the freewill offer- ings of the Lord's people. Pastor Lopez Rodriguez is the director, and the Rev. J. C. S. Mathias. Leicester, the treasurer. The mission was quite unsectarian, and comprises nine mission halls, four Sunday schools, five day and three night schools. three mothers' meetings, a young women's Chris- tian association. Bible classes, and prayer meetings. It. had a monthly periodical. The Herald, similar"in character to the British Workman, and 52,000 In- ternational S.S. Lesson Leaflets were issued annually and circulated amongsft 32 Sunday schools in Spain, besides Gospel tracts, texts, etc. A very important feature of the work was the medical mission, at which over 3,000 patients were treated last year. and during the five years of its existence, over 9.000 came under treat- ment. It was satisfactory to note that the value of this institution has been recognised by the Town Council of Figneras. notwithstanding it is a Protestant medical mission, and that they have voted a grant of £5 to its support. Such an act was unparalleled in the history of a country so much under the domineering power of the Romish priests. After briefly glancing at the darkness and superstition of Spain, the want of liberty for the press, for open-air preaching, re- ferring to the Government restrictions laid upon indoor meetings, and the great need there was for spreading the Gospel of Christ in that benighted country, the Chairman quoted from the annual report issued by the mission, copies of which were freely distributed amongst the audience, and earnestly appealed to their Christian sympathy and support, and he hoped that what they would hear to-night from the two evangelists would be blessed to them all, and as one result he would be glad to hear of some young man or young woman whose heart the Lord had touched, and led to con- secrate himself or herself to this grand work of evangelising Spain. (Applause.) Pastor Lopez Rodriguez gave a brief account of the remarkable manner in which the conversion of his mother, his brother, and himself took place, at a time when they were wholly given up to the worship of the Virgin Mary. and had previously never read a word of the Bible. Madame Rodriguez then told her thrilling story, which was illustrated throughout by magic-lantern views, consisting of some of the principal sights of Spain, a'Jcl of many of the social, domestic, and public scenes to be witnessed in that country. Many striking incidents were given in proof of direct answers to prayer, and interesting cases of conversion, and the fidelity of converts to the Christian faith in the face of much persecution from their Catholic relatives and friends. Madame Rodriguez expressed her thanks to the worthy chairman for the generosity he had accorded to their work and for his donation to the new Gospel-hall. At the conclusion of the address, which was listened to with marked attention and frequently applauded, a vote of thanks to Pastor and Madame Rodriguez, also to Mr. Windsor for his valuable services with the lantern, was proposed by the Chairman, and seconded by Captain Sharpies. The Rev. H. J. Payn spoke of the gratitude due to Mr. Cory for bringing such missionaries into their midst. The interesting proceedings then terminated by prayer.
