ROUND THE TOWNS. [BY MR. GAD-ABOUT.] A local doctor fills in Hme by flying a kite on Cadoxton Common. Some of the frequenters of the Barry Dock Police Court while away the time by knitting. Seventy ladies used bathing machines on Barry Island between ten and three o'clock on Saturday. A notice in a jeweller's window recently stated that This clock strikes the hours and quarters every hour." Asked the age of her promising son at the Barry Dock Police Court, a mother said. I can't tell exactly, Sir, as I ain't no scholard The Hibernians intend having great cracks at their supper and dance, and are going to make it worth any one's while to be there. It has been remarked that there are doctors on every public body in the district, but oil the Burial Board. Why do they fight shy of it ::< The Rev. E. Evans, Lampeter, who preached at Barry on Sunday is the happy possessor of the most melodious voice in the Welsh ministry. # The Buffaloes are undoubtedly a jovial class of men with feeling hearts in their bodies, as was I evidenced at the concert on Friday night. 4: Doors are increasing rapidly in the neighbour- hood of Barry Dock. It is nearly time the police again asked for the production of licences. Inspector Rees conducted the business of the Barry Dock Police Court on Thursday very etliciently in the absence of Superintendent Wake. Miss Pattie Transfield is certainly a precocious child, but she will require a lot of training before she will be able to take a portion of any standing in a concert hall. The proceeding's of the Temperance Council on Friday night were of such a nature that it was considered unsafe to admit reporters. What Another conspiracy Since the inauguration of the Buffalo Institute a few months ago. I notice the walls have been decorated with a dado surmounted by an artistic terra-cotta wall-paper. The lively young inhabitants of Cadoxton, on Saturday evenings at the Public Hall, trip merrily to the enrapturing strains of a tin-whistle, accompanied by a concertina. I hear that Mr. Alfred Williams, son of the esteemed Mr. J. J. Williams, Tynewydd, is going over to the majority shortly. I mean the married part of mankind. I wish him every joy. Goodness what an amount of cherry paste was used by a singer at the Buff's concert on Friday night. No wonder the company engaged to play in My Sweetheart failed to come up to scratch. Mr.J.A.HughesattheBarry Burial Board meet- ing said architects were but mortal: meaning it was unfair that an architect employed by the Board should have to decide between them and a con- tractor. Mr. R. Percival. of the National Provincial Bank. Cadoxton. won his heat in the 120 yards race on Saturday at the Cardiff Cycling Sports, but was not placed at all in the final. Better luck next time' There was plenty of room for a charitably in- clined individual to render help to half a dozen poor chaps who struggled a good while to get a safe into an office in Yere-street on Monday afternoon. The only Welsh place of worship in Barry where the" Amen" i", sung at the end of the hymns is the Independent Chapel. High-street and judging from its fate on Sunday night it isn't likely to be very popular. The commoners intend prosecuting the gentle- man who last Sunday afternoon cut his name on one of the seats on Cadoxton Common and the captain of the Salvation Army will be on his track for desecrating the Sabbath. Wednesday was the children's treat day at Barry. The English Methodists, Wesleyans. and Welsh Independents enjoyed themselves on Barry Island, and the Welsh Baptists and the Barry Dock Welsh Methodists went to Sully. The magistrates at the Barry Dock Police Court told three parents to take their sons home and give them a good thrashing for misbehav iour. '• Yes," replied one of the mothers. and be brought here for marking them." There is a form of entertainment served up in ithe far far West of America at which the audience •pay the highest price for seats farthest from the -stage, and nearest the exit, for the greater facility of leaving should the performance be much worse .than usual. Mr. B. G. Davies was the only member who attended the Burial Board meeting at that appro- priate spot, the Cemetery, on Saturday last. Mr. John Robinson expressed his willingness to attend on Sundays, but notion other days. I suppose he feels good on the Sabbath. Vere-street on Monday made a good Show. 'Capturing the ourang outang was not in it. A. -sailor left himself drop from the top room of Webb's boarding-house, and tried to leave without leave. Webb and the dogs gave chase, and the ifox was brought to bay in no time, mauled about :a bit and re-hung up at the top of the house. A correspondent writes :—" A new kind of nui- sance in Vere-street is the number of dogs who seem to thing they have a right to congregate out- aide the tradespeople's doors and there indulge in any amount of fighting and barking, to their own apparent satisfaction and the annoyance of passers- by. New, indeed Two engineers from ships which lay in Barry took out their women folk for a row on Saturday •in the harbour. The boat, however, got stuck fast in the mud a dozen yards or so away from the land, -and the enterprising boatmen had to remain there li the cynosure of neighbouring eyes of a huge crowd that had gathered round—till three o'clock <cn Sunday morning. The visiting committee of the Cadoxton-Barry Burial Board must have done some individual visiting on their own account on Saturday even- ing, for, except Mr. B. G. Davies, not one came to the meeting. I have heard that some of them consider meeting at Merthyrdovan cemetery is too much of a good thing, and they adopt this absentee method to put an end to it. Legal jokes are not often very clear, but judges .do not usually land themselves in the position of Judge Gwilym Williams, and have one at their- -own expense, "Whenever I asked him to compen- sate me for the damage his horses had done to my .potato field, he sent me to the devil, your Honour," said the plaintiff. "And you came to me in pre- .ference ? said his Honour, • "Mr. J. Davies, the very efficient and uniformly -courteous secretary of the Barry Science and Art Classes, finished his year of office last Tuesday. 'No wonder, considering how much of the success of the classes has depended on Mr. Davies. that the other members of the committee passed him a cordial vote of thanks. Mr. Davies is one of the best type of self-taught, intelligent Welshmen, whose advance in knowledge only makes stronger their love of the old language. I have to thank some lady at Barry for six rock cakes which have been sent to me for review." I regret that I was so hungry at the time they were received and that the cakes looked so tempt- ing, that I took very little time indeed to review" them. I liked that sort of reviewing so much that I am willing to do it again. I have also to thank some enterprising admirer for a basket of aiice mushreoms. One of the office boys of the SOUTH WALES STAR hails from Philadelphia. His travels take in New York, Brooklyn, Boston, Chicago, and New Orleans. The precocious youngster is willing to Cross the briny ocean And be off to Philadelphia," or to theChicago Eisteddfod, if the manager would only raise his wages and appoint him special cor- z, respondent. N.B.-His name is not Pat Leary. In the Cardiff Exprrsx I seem to feel the familiar touch of the hand of Spinnaker Boom" this week. The Daily Xi'ir* said that there very few lunatics in Glamorganshire hence, it said, only Radicals were returned by it to Parliament. The U-rprcM has neatly turned the point. There are only a few lunatics," it says, in Glamorganshire. There would be more if there were less Radical M.P.s in Parliament." A correspondent of mine wrote me a most inno- cent little paragraph about the way two small urchins treated a member of the Salvation Army on a Sunday night. For my pains I am called a fool and a liar, if not something worse, and I am consigned to the lake that burns with fire and brimstone." If this fellow, who calls himself a Captain of the Salvation Army, is a fair speci- men of General Booth's followers, I must change my opinion of what I had always looked upon as a section of the charitable Church of Christ. No wonder King David, with his great knowledge of mankind—for I suppose men of the kidney of Captain Prosser lived in those times-did not wish to fall into the hands of men. CORRESPONDENCE. Dear Mr. Gad-About.—Another wild goose was feathered in Main-street on Wednesday after- noon last, and on Wednesday night another wild goose spread its wings and flew away from Vere- street. I hear his credit ors are engaged in a veritable wild goose chase after him.-I am, yours &c.. CYMRO. Dear Mr. Gad-About,—I notice that Captain Prosser., of the Salvation Army, calls you a fool. Since the Christian sold'er likes Biblical verses so much, especially those that deal summarily with his brethren, let me commend this to his notice Whosoever shall say, thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.Yours, &c., HATER OF CANT. SJE Dear Mr. Gad-About,—Why is it there are so many widows come to live in Barry lately ? It is almost impossible to get a decent house there, as there are so many of the interesting creatures' come to live there. Is it because there are so many single professional gentlemen in the dis- trict?—I am, yours &c.. GWIDMAX. Dear Mr. Gad-A bout,—I think you ought to hear a bull that was made the other night at a temperance meeting. A local minister was de- claiming against those who had accused the mini- sters of not coming boldly forward to support the Temperance cause as they should. But where are they now:" he eloquently asked. And if they were here in this very room. I would ask them to their very face, Where are they now etc,, HEX GYBYDD. Dear Mr. Gad-About.—We hear a great deal these days about starting a new industry on the Moors. It has always been a surprise to me that no brewery has been started here yet. Mr. Duncan said the other night that if we only produced what we ourselves consume, we would do pretty well. I can only say if a company produced as much beer as is drunk by the people of the district, it would do a roaring trade. Possibly, however, the water is too bad.—Yours, &c., W. S. Dear Mr. Gad-About.-I was down on the Island last Saturday, and in a weak moment I hired a bathing machine. After undressing, I waited for a time to be taken into the sea in the machine, but after some time I got tired and walked in. I found then I had to walk out a dis- tance of ten or twelve yards to reach my bathing machine, the object of admiring interest on the part of several people, not all of one sex. I got my feet covered with sand, which I failed to remove with the aid of the wet towels given me. Surely the public are entitled to better service for their sixpence.—I am, yours &c., llmxy. Dear Gad-A bout. — I was at a meeting the other night at which there happened to be present a ;ood number of ministers ofdiiferent denominations sitting on a front bench, and from a habit they had jf putting one leg over the other I noticed they nearly all wore elastic-side boots, from which I conclude, after giving the matter some profound thought, that this kind of boot is favoured by the dergy, from the fact that it prevents the outburst )f violent expressions consequent upon the break- ng of a lace, more especially when you have to jateh an early morning train hence the beaming imile with which a minister greets the unfortunate ayman, who, gasping and flustered, ignoininiously 'alls into the train just as the guard blows his .vhistle.—Like the Ivy, Dear Gad-About, I cling to ihee. HANDBAG. Cadoxton.

Police- constable Williams proved the case. WRONG SCALES.—Charles Chislett, employe of the Barry and Cadoxton Coal Company, of Barry. was charged with using wrong scales on the 2nd inst.—Police-constable Gammon said that on the 2nd inst. he saw the defendant, who was selling coal. He had no scales as required by the County Council and Board of Trade, but a strange spring balance. — Superintendent Rees said he had cautioned the defendant on the 16th inst. in Castle- land-street, and told him that the balance he was carrying was not in accordance with the County Council bye-laws.—Mr. Jones-Lloyd, who appeared for the coal company, admitted that the man had not carried the scales, but the balance was a fair one. -Fine 5s. and 7s. 6d. costs.-George Crabb was charged with a similar offence on the 19th inst. at Cadoxton.-Acl1ing-sergeant.

The case had been adjourned for a month on the applica- tion of the defending solicitor, Mr. Carter, of Bristol, for the appearance of the brewer's agent, James Sexton, who left the nine- gallon cask at Mr. Sidwell. James Sexton said he was the agent of Messrs. Pearce, of Cardiff. The cask in question was ordered by Mrs. Webb, a boarding-house keeper, of Vere-street, but it was too late, and Mrs. Webb had ordered a cask elsewhere. On going back, he obtained permission from Mr. Sidwell's niece to leave the cask at Mr. Sidwell's house. Mr. Sidwell generally had a 9-gallon cask once a fortnight, and he thought that, as the fortnight was nearly up, he might want one. On calling on Monday, he found the cask had been taken by the police. Mr. Sidwell had not paid for that cask. but when he delivered the casks ordered by Mr. Sidwell, Mr. Sidwell always paid cask down.—Mr. Jackson, who appeared for the pro- secution, put the witness through a severe ex- amination. Sexton said he kept no order book or books of any kind.—Cross-evamined by Mr. Jones He had left casks behind at Mr. Sidwell's before on several occasions, but had taken them to the brewery again. He picked out Sidwell's house to leave it at, as it was the last house towards home. —James Maddocks, one of the men whom the police saw enter the house, gave evidence as to his errand, which was for some sweets.-The Chair- man of the Bench, said that, although the circum- stances were very suspicions, the magistrates did not think the evidence sufficient to convict the defendant. At the same time, in selling groceries on a Sunday, he was breaking the law. If in future anyone had any need to come to his house on business, heishould see they came to his front door, not the back.—Mr. Sidwell said it was the usual custom of some of his customers to come to its back d.or, ASSAULT.—Mr. and Mrs. William Carroll, Pen- coitre, was charged by Thomas William Thomas, wheelwright, with assaulting him on the 16th inst.-There was a cross-summons by the defen- dants against the plaintiff, charging him with assault.—Mr. Jones-Lloyd appeared for Mr. Thomas, and Mr. Jackson for the Carrols.—Mr. Jones-Lloyd said the defendants had employed Thomas, who was a wheelwright, to do some work for them. To get his money for the same he had to take out a County-court summons. On the 16th August the defendants came to the Coldbrook Farm and asked for the wheels which complainant had used up, and said that if he didn't give them the wheels they would have him. The woman struck him on the face, and the husband, wife, and the son then threw stones at him.—Mrs. Carroll, in support of the cross-summons, said she sent her boy to ask Thomas to come out to see her. He came out, and they asked about the wheels, and he said, "You go on. you b- cow," and struck her.-After hearing the evidence on both sides, the Bench dismissed the case against William Carroll, and bound his wife and Thomas over to keep the peace in the sums of AL 1,0 each. JUVENILE OFFENDERS.—Walter Havwood and John Harvey, boys of 9 and 10 years of a^re, were charged with stealing potatoes, value 1s., the pro- perty of Thomas Crocker, of Daniel-street, on the 13th August.—Mrs. Crocker said she saw the defen- dants pulling the potatoes out with their hands. She went out to the garden, and defendants rushed away and left the potatoes behind. She had missed a lot of things from the garden, and these boys were the first she had caught. She was very sorry to have to bring the boys there.—Defendants denied being in the garden.—A boy named John Davies Williams said he saw the two boys in the garden on the day in question pulling up potatoes.—The Chairman said the boys .were very naughty, and the Bench regretted they had not the power to have the boys flogged.-The parents were bound over in the sum of JL5 to bring up their children for judgment when called upon. THEFT AT BARRY DOCK.—Herbert Cole. late a page at Barry Dock, was charged with stealing a watch, ring, and x 1 18s. 6d., on the 12th August.— Police-constable Boulton proved receiving the prisoner from the Bristol police.-Prisoner ad- mitted taking the watch and 24s.—Charles Edward Evans, of Kingsland-crescent. Barry Dock, waiter at Barry Dock, said the defendant was a nage and slept with him in the same room. He missed 10s. on the 5tli. and defendant left his place on the 12th, and he didn't see him afterwards. After he was gone he missed a silver watch, ring, and £ 1 18s. 6d. He gave information to the police.— Defendant's father, in defence, said his son's intellect was extremely weak.—Prisoner was com- mitted to take his trial at the next Quarter Sessions. —Defendant's father was bound over in the sum of 20 as bail.
IWTYCYMMER GLEE SOCIETY. -+- On Tuesday evening a dinner held in the Bethel Vestry, Pontycymmer, under the auspices of the Pontycymmer Glee Society, was very well attended, and passed off in a most successful manner, Mr. Ernest Bryant being the caterer. The after dinner proceedings were presided over by Mr. D. Johns, amongst the others present being Messrs. Tom Richards (conductor), LI. Jones (sec.), J. Lewis (treasurer). D. Cynlas Da vies,iT. Williams. D. L. Griffiths. W. Pennant. H. Lee, T. Bale, M. Hughes, X. Xoyle, D. Novle, John Maddocks, Thos. Lewis, John Jenkins, and T. J. Evans. Miss Francis, of Bridgend, (who accompanied through- out) opened the programme with a pianoforte solo, which was loudly applauded. The Secretary (Mr. LI. Jones) in an interview with the press representatives,' stated that the society was founded in 1886 by D. O. Davies, who the following year retired, and was succeeded as conductor by Mr. Tom Richards. Under the con- ductorship of Mr. Richards the society had entered 14 competitions, taking 10 first prizes—the last nine of which were won consecutively. The mem- bership had grown until then, when there were about 90 on the books. Two operas had been per- formed by the members in full character, viz.. "David and Goliath" and a drama entith i Tewdwe," the words and the music Of the latter being composed by Mr. Tom Richards. The society last August won the prize, value £ 30, at the Swansea National Eistedd- fod against the best male choirs in Wales, includ- ing Treorkv, Rhondda. and Port Talbot. Mr. LI. Jones had been the secretary since its commence- ment. and his services in that capacity had been recognised by the presentation of a writing desk. The party was now preparing to compete at the Xeath and Pontypridd competitions. Miss Mary Francis had officiated as accompanist since the start, and was still with them. The practices wero being held three times a week in the Board School. The estimation in which the conductor (Mr. Richa rds) was held was dearly evidenced by the fact that he had been offered a dozen engagements as conductor and adjudicator. The Chairman having expressed his pleasure at being present at that social gathering, dwelt upon the advantages of being sociable one with another. Mr. John Isaac sang in fine style Cru-y-Gad." and his efforts were cordially received. Mr. Pennant expressed h;s pleasure at the growth of the society, and said it was now no longer an infant, but a full grown pugilistic man. They were pleased to see Mr. C. Davies present, and looking so well. (Cheers.) With regard to music and the cultivation of music amongst the people, he believed that wherever music, poetry. and literature were prized and practised there the people had secured for themselves the surest source of ha ppiness "domestic happiness, and natural happi- ness. After referring to the satisfaction it gave him toisee so many young men spending their evenings practising songs, he said that a schoolmaster had to have patience, and humorously added that he feared his would have been exhausted before he could have finished the work that Mr. Richards had done. He urged upon them the necessity of thoroughly practising their pieces, and in conclu- sion urged them to remember when they went to Chicago that they were a Welsh party, and that they would have to uphold the honour of Wales. He had no doubt that the people of Wales would support the party financially, especially when they saw how the members were doing their utmost themselves. (Applause.) Mr. Lee having rendered the song, Mona," Mr. Tom Lewis said that the Pontycymmer Glee Society had made a name for itself. The Ponty- cymmer Society did good in more than simply cultivating a taste for music—it was the means of creating good friendship amongst young men it was the means of stimulating young men to go to places which were more to their credit than to stay on the roads. They had been very backward in that direction, and he believed that they ought to do a great deal more in Pontycymmer for their young people than they did. They wanted a little bit of unity. If one person suggested a good thing, probably half a dozen would pull the other way. They had proved that in connection with the Public Hall for Pontycymmer. They must, however, give the credit to the Pontycymmer Glee Society of pulling ahead continually. (Hear, hear.) They had worked under great difficulties, one of the principal of which was want of a proper room in which to practice. Many times had they been inconve- nienced by that want of accommodation, but no matter how inadequate that accommodation had been, they had made a mark of which he was sure Wales was proud. He hoped that the society would attain even greater victories in the future than they had in the past. (Cheers.) He advised them to attend the practices regularly, and to do their best at Neath and Pontypridd before going | across the water to Chicago. Then the financial difficulty was a serious consideration with them all. He had been greatly disappointed to notice that the leading men of the Garw Valley were absent that night. He did not mean to say that they were absent through any bad feeling towards the Party, still they must admit that it would have been the greatest encouragement to them to have seen some of the leading people taking an interest in that gathering. However, he urged them to go forward as they were doing, and then the society would continue to prosper. (Applause.) "The Bell Ringers" was then given by Mr. C. Davies in such a manner as to evoke a loud demand for an encore, to which Mr. Davies responded by singing It is enough. Mr. Henry Davies then sang Llwvbr yr Wyddfa," after which Mr. Richard Davies made a few remarks in Welsh. He said that none of the party had spoken up to that movement. The party did not profess to be speakers, but singers. If any of them was to say that he could not speak they would not be offended, but if he said that he could not sing he would find himself in a hot shop. (Laughter.) The party thanked the local gentlemen who had attended for their presence, and would have been glad to have seen more. The generosity they had experienced from the local people had been of great encouragement to them as a party, and they still asked for the same generosity to be extended to them in the future. He was glad to see Mr. Lee there, and Mr. Davies. their first leader, who had led them between Belwroth and Baalycphor. Though he (Mr. Davies) had left they still believed that they had an excellent leader in Mr. Richards. (Applause.) He was glad to find that Mr. Davies retained his voice considering, the fact that he lived in a very unmusical part of England. He sang that night! as well as ever. (Hear, hear.) To attain their present position had cost much hard labour, and much hard thought for many of them. It was possible that some were not all they ought to be, but the whole society should not be thought guilty because one or two members might be at fault. They desired the people of the Valley to accept their most grateful thanks for all past kindnesses. (Applause.) The vocal duet, "Excelsior," was then exquisitely rendered by Messrs. C. Davies and Lee. Mr. Morgan Hughes said that it was necessary that they, who intended going to Chicago, should themselves be preparing at once for it financially. Each should remember that the good name of the party rested upon his shoulders, and that each had to do his part to uphold the dignity of the Garw Valley. He would especially ask them to remember that when they were away from home the eyes of the public would be upon such a well known body of men. Mr. Lewis having read a few verses by Gwyrosydd, Mr. C. Davies again sang, The Skipper being the piece selected. Mr. Tom Richards then moved a vote of thanks to all who had assisted, and this having been carried with acclamation, the singing of Hen Wlad fy Xhadau terminated the proceedings.

PONTYPRIDD. TRADES COGXCIL. A meeting of the Trades Council was held on Wednesday evening at the Sports- man Hotel, under the presidency of Mr. Edward Morgan. Messrs. Henshaw and Waters were admitted as delegates on behalf the local branch of the Opera- tiye Bakers, and Mr. Dare on behalf of the Carpen- ters. A long discussion took place with reference to the need for a cottage hospital at Pontypridd, and it was eventually resolved that the secretary (Mr. Fred George Edwards) should write to Mr. Gordon Lenox, J.P., asking the hearty support and co-operation of gentlemen in the movement. PONTYPRIDD BREWSTER SESSIONS.— On Wed- nesdaythe annual brewster sessions of the Pontypridd district was held before Messrs J. Ignatius Williams, stipendiary, Edward Edwards, and Edward Thomas.— All unopposed applications for renewal were granted, but the seven cases objected to by private parties, and a large number of houses to which the police objected, were, as well as the applications for new licences, postponed to the adjourned sessions on September 28. -An attempt was made to establish a precedent for the hearing of cases objected to by private persons without an adjournment, but the Bench set their faces against it. YNYSYBWL. SPECIAL SERVICES.—The members of Zion Eng- lish Baptist Church held their half-yearly meetings on Sunday and Monday last, when the pulpit was occupied by the Rev. D. Davies, Maesynhelm, and the Rev. R. Jenkins, Tredegar. The afternoon service on Sunday was held at the Noddfa Welsh Baptist Chapel, upon which occasion the Rev. R. Jenkins preached in Welsh and the Rev. R. Davies in English. At the close of each service collections were made towards defraying the cost of building. LECTURE.—On Monday evening at the Jeiusalem Welsh Calvinistic Methodist Chapel the Rev. D. C. Phillips (Celyddeu) delivered a very 11 interesting lecture upon the il Johnstown Disaster." The chair was occupied by Mr. Edward Jones, manager, Lady Windsor Colliery, there being a fair attendance. The proceeds were devoted to the building fund wf the Presbystcrian Church. ABERDARE. DOG SHOW.—On Wednesday evening an influential and representative meeting was held at the Boot Hotel, under the presidency of Mr. W. Mander, High Constable of Aberdare, for the purpose of making arrangements for the forthcoming tlog show. It was decided to ask Mr. Herbert C. Lewis, theMardy, to he come president. Mr. D. P. Davies, Commercial- street, the secretary of the Flower Show Committee, was elected secretary, and the meeting adjourned for a week to received the reply of the gentlemen asked to be patrons and vice-presidents. FERNDALE. LECTURE ON "JOHN JONES."—The able and elo quent Welshman, the Rev. T.Eynon Davies (Glasgeu), delivered his well-known lecture on the above subject at the Trhrhondda Chapel, Ferndale, on Tuesday evening last. The chapel was not so full as it was expected to be, but the audience was a very appreciative and attentive one, and the renowned lecturer was in good form, and he kept the people in roars of laughter from beginning to end. The lecture was also very instructive, and the audience was well repaid for coming. The proceeds of the lecture go to defray the debt on the Independent Chapel at Ynysybwl. IF you wish success in life make perseverance your bosom friend, experience your wise councillor, caution your elder brother, and hope your guardian genius.— Addison.
NEW DEPARTURE IN COUPON INSURANCE- STARTLING INNOVATION. It has always been our aim to introduce into the SOUTH WALES STAR such various features as have undoubtedly tended to make it widely popular; and we now announce a special feature which, while of novel departure, will, we think, com- mend the paper still more to the public. We have concluded a contract with the General Acci- dent Assurance Corporation, Limited, having its j Chief Offices at Perth, and at 4, Abchurch Yard, London, whereby £ 10 WILL BE PAID by the Corporation to the legal representative of any person killed by an accident or fatally injured thereby, should death result within one month after such injury, while a passenger on any rail- way. steamboat, tramway, omnibus, or other public conveyance, or while on any street or public road, within the United Kingdom, as a PRIVATE INDIVIDUAL, and the like amount will be paid to such person should the injury not prove fatal, but cfciuse the loss of sight, or of a limb or limbs, or the fracture of an arm or leg and A:5 WILL BE PAID to any person who shall sustain a fracture of the arm or leg while engaged in playing football or while cycling Provided that the person so killed or injured shall be the owner of the SOUTH WALES STAR of the current week containing an insurance coupon, with his or her usual signature written in ink therein. The idea of giving insurance by purchase of a paper was first conceived by a popular magazine in 1885, and immediately thereafter the Railway Passengers Insurance Company, and the General Accident Assurance Corporation, formulated the now familiar coupon system. The latter Company was doing an extensive business in this connec- tion in 1S87, when the Government made a claim against them for stamp duty on the coupons. Acting under the highest legal advice, the Corpo- ration resisted the claim, urging that the coupon was merely a statement to the effect that an insu- ranee had been effected, formulated for the pur- poses of identification, and to minimise the risk of imposition and fraud. The resistance was so far successful as to compel the Government to bring in a Bill making it obligatory on all insurance companies to pay a duty of 5 per cent. on the coupon premiums. Immediately this point was made, all the companies who had previously been lacking in the necessary courage to oppose the Government, united in competing for this class of business, now that the way had been shown to them. Coupons have, however, been hitherto, in general, limited to railway accidents, and that for death only. A recently published Parliamentary return gives the number of persons killed and injured on the railways in the United Kingdom during 1890 as 918 KILLED AND 8,971 INJURED. Great as this number is. yet, having regard to the hundreds of thousands who travel upon the vast network of railway lines in the United Kingdom, it is an obvious reflection that railway travelling, as compared with the dangers of the streets, is by far the safest mode of progression. It has seemed to us and to others that a system of insurance which would give some compensation to those who meet with ACCIDENTS IN THE STREETS, and afford a welcome contribution towards the in- evitable expenses of such mishaps, would be a boon to the public at large. Hundreds of men, week in, week out, from year's end to year's end, travel by railway, "bus, or tram to and from business, who have not insured their lives or provided in any way against accident. The possibility of how to extend to these some modicum of protection is naturally hedged about by a great many difficulties: but at least the benefits which we have now placed within the reach of the purchasers of our paper are such as could only be obtained from the com- pany direct by paying more than the price of the paper. Football, which is a national game, is, by reason of the fervour with which it is played, attended with more danger than any other pastime, if we may judge from the number of accidents from time to time reported. Having regard to the enthusiasm which it invokes in these districts, the circumstance that our insurance coupon pro- vides also for the INSURANCE OF PLAYERS of this game cannot fail to command cordial ap- proval. It is noteworthy that football risks have ordi- narilybeenregarded byaccident insurance companies as necessitating higher premiums, or indeed as un- desirable, and this has led to the institution of a Football Insurance Union. But while the insur- ance in this journal is limited to one coupon for each holder, it is not invalidated by any insurance, other than coupon, with any Accident Company, but is in addition thereto. It is hardly necessary for us to dwell upon the fact that cycling, like everything else, has its dangers, but to use an Irish expression" only more so," and the same benefits are extended to cyclists as to football players.
