ROUND THE TOWNS.
ROUND THE TOWNS. rBY MR. GADABOUT.] v' A most serious complaint has reached me from the neighbourhood of Barry. It is reported that a teacher at one of our public schools—no names, please !—has for a long time cultivated the habit of arriving late at his duties. JP i: Mr. Gadabout learns that this young getit has lately laid in—on the quiet-a stock of t; Magic Hair and Moustache Producer," and now it re- quires about half-an-hour each morning, with the aid of a looking—I was going to write magnifying -glass to ascertain whether there are any signs of the long expected ones. Take courage, my young friend. Patience is a virtue. They will appear soon enough. 2 Of course when I received the above complaint I naturally looked for a reason for this sudden change and apparent anxiety. I now learn that his would-be better-half has quietly hinted that a kiss without a moustache is like an egg without salt! Mr. Gadabout is perplexed, and for some time has been engaged in the solution of a problem placed before him by a regular reader of the Star. # Although things have been quiet of late in many directions, it appears that some people in the neighbourhood of Cadoxton have been busy enough. So busy, in fact, that they have not taken quite enough care with the letters they have penned on nicely-scented paper to the girl of their heart. But, perhaps, they placed it too near their heart. It may have dropped out on the way to the Post- office, and so found it way to Mr. Gadabout. I sympathise with this yeung man, who has been able of late to save enough money-in consequence ef the frost and hard weather-to ask his dar- ling to jump the broom with him. And now, as to the problem which I have been per- plexed over. I was asked to name the trade to which this fortunate man belonged, that he has been busy during frosty weather. I must really decline to answer such a question. In fact, I hardly know But was he a plumber? at ± Ye jokers of Barry, beware! I am desired by our Fighting Editor to warn those who have threatened to take off that in- dividual on Valentine's Day that he has gone into training, and it will be war to the backbone" if any jokes are played upon him on the 14th. On the Q.T." I don't mind telling those interested that he has lately purchased all" the necessaries," and will continue practising during the next few days. The Star man was really shocked on Saturday when taking up a daily contemporary, he read that a. scullerymaid had died through tight-lacing. Of eourse, I did my level best to persuade him that such cases were few and far between, but all to no purpose. He would have his little say in the matter, and after arguing the question for some time, he insisted that I should consult the other members of the staff. ♦ « Forthwith the order went out for a Cabinet Council in Ye Star Chamber. My learned friends readily responded to the call, and the question was thoroughly discussed, "Is tight-lacing injurious to the health." OF ± I held my ground that the ladies of Barry, Cadoxton, and Penarth were not so foolish as to indulge in tight-lacing to any serious extent, but "Peter" insisted that he had seen plenty of it in each of those places, while our office boy, as he hastily left the room, asserted that the Barry girls made their waists so small in ørder to ac- commodate some one else's arm. Shocking! How often are the innocent compelled to suffer for the guilty. A very nice young man, who declares that nearly all the girls in the locality are making eyes at him, has had a strange experience. On Friday night he was patiently waiting in Cadoxton for someone," when a good lady from an adjoining house accused him of being a perfect nuisance by knocking at her door. Of course he declared by the never-dying missing word that he was innocent, but, nevertheless, he was pronounced guilty, and threatened with the consequences if he knocked again. T- After the good lady had departed judje the height of his temper when he discovered that a couple of boys and a piece of cotton had beauti- fully managed the whole affair. ¥ Mr. Gadabout will not be ao indiscreet as to pub- lish all that was said or what followed. On Thursday, it appears, our local police at Cadoxton had a fine time of it." A couple of firemen from the docks thought they sould do what they liked with those who wear the coat of blue, but they were sadly mistaken. In fact I am told that one of the constables went for his opponent in true British fashion, and doubled in up-to the cells—in no time. 5|< JJS But who was tne individual that shook in his shoes when called upon, in the name of the Queen, to assist.? I suppose I am like all other human beings—at least, I am told that such is the case-and have my faults. Just now I am content to keep them, but, somehow, I cannot keep a pair of gloves. I have at least three or four odd ones, but their fellows have, no doubt, with the return of the fine weather, sought fresh fields and pastures new. # I shall be glad if any of my kind friends who find odd gloves straying will forward them to the Star Office, Vere-street, Cadoxton but carriage paid, please Is it true that during the past four weeks no hot water has been obtainable at the Penarth Public Baths ? Mr. Gadabout has had a complaint that such is the case. ± It is said that even the attendants at the Public Baths blush with shame when they are obliged to tell people that there is water, water everywhere, but not a drop of hot. A plentiful supply of soap is the latest addition to the floor of Barry Station. # A couple of my friends tell me that they recently visited Barry Station, but were compelled to fly out of the waiting-room on to the platform in con- sequence of the awful smell which arose from the recently washed floor. m It would perhaps be advisable on scouring occasions to open the doors or windows, as I feel sure that the room would not object to a little more ventilation. Unless the porter at one of our stations stops his nightly flirtation and attends to the wants of passengers, I shall certainly have to call attention to the matter. # I don't object to any individual making love to a nice looking girl at a railway station, but I think it is rather out of place for a porter to ride on the step of a carriage the whole length of the platform in order to speak to his dearest, while at the same time passengers are awaiting his atten- tion. The bright weather on Sunday last took a lot of people to the Island, and there was plenty of match making. •k Barry Island is apparently rapidly developing this industry. 5! r Mr. William Saunders, of Cadoxton, has applied for a patent for his improved method and means of simultaneously locking and unlocking railway carriage doors throughout a train. He has also sought to patent an improved method and means for displaying in railway carriages the names of stations. Perhaps Mr. Saunders, or someone else, will prevail upon the Barry Railway Company to dis- play the names of stations upon their lamp. It is exceedingly difficult for strangers to know what station they arrive at. The Barry and Cadoxton Local Board Bill, and also the Barry Railway Company's Bill, will originate in the House of Commons. # Barry Railway Company's Bill has fulfilled all the requirements of the Standing Orders of the House, and has been ordered to be reported for the first reading. The object of the Bill is to enable the Barry Railway Company to construct another dock, and to make new railways and trams, with an addi- tional capital of £ 480,000. « # # I learn that the grand concert announced to be held at the Barry Public-hall on Wednesday, the' 8th, has been postponed until to-night (Friday). The concert has been arranged with the object of adding to the St. Mary's Church Funds. A capital programme has been provided, and tickets may be obtained from Dr. Sixsmith, one of the hon. secretaries. Funny things happen in Vere-street Sometimes. Sometimes flits take place from the thorough- fares." # Sometimes the minds of the older inhabitants are much exercised at the number of tarts several of our local mashers consume at the cafe, and wonder where in the world they can put them all. Somotimes the office boy exults in the enjoyment of a dog fight, and many other things occur. ♦ Seldom, however, are the inhabitants tiifiedby such a sight as was witness lost week. Two frail sisters had had a. dispute, and fisticuffs were resorted to, to impress arguments. One sister, getting the worse of the fray, sank down on her knees in an attitude of devotion, and loudly declared her intention to leave it to one above, and not to strike back. The second pleasant Sunday afternoon service took place at the Barry Congregational Church on Sunday. Spirited addresses were delivered by Rev. Graham Payn and Mr. Meggitt to a crowded audience of young men. I sincerely hope other Churches at Barry Dock and Cadoxton will forth- with start similar services. Weddings generally are very joyous events to most people. A gentleman connected with the Locomotive Department, Barry, is said to be con- templating matrimony. Rumour says the only drawback is that he forgot to be off with the old love before he got on with the new, and that the consequences will be a. breach of promise of case. A poster circulated throughout the district this week states that a number of ministers would support the chair at a public meeting. If the promoters had only given us notice we would have sent our Fighting Editor, who would have been able to support the chair single-handed. # What a lot of punsters we have down here to be sure. S « « Talking to me this week one of them Slays," 1 say, old chap, Thompson-street is becoming quite good." Ah," said the Religious Editor, a smile of pleasure shining on his reverend countenance like the soft subdued rays of a sinking sun, Is that so?" "Yes," said the vile joker, "many go to Chapple there who never went before." # O « The Inspector of the Dock Police, Barry Dock; has just taken possession of his country residence at Mill Cottage. The name seems rather sugges- tive for evil-doers. Mons. De Verdi, who has been away from the district for some time, has just returned. The following is a copy of a letter sent to a local bench of magistrates on Monday Sir,—I am sorry for what I have done on the 27th of January, but Iamgilty, and I am sorry to say i cannot atind, as i am working, and 'if there is anything to pay, my wife will be there to pay the fine.- Yours truly, An absent-minded young lady one day last week went into the Wenvoe Hotel to get a railway ticket, thinking that she had arrived at the station, and that was the tieket-.office A The Barry String Band will perform selections of music at the Barry Parish-hall concert on Saturday next. $7 Mr. and Mrs. Petty, who sang at the Choral Union concert on Wednesday night, are a very valuable acquisition to the musical talent of the neighbourhood. sfi 'I< At the Trade Unionist supper held at the Vic- toria Hotel last Monday evening one of our local temperance advocates beckoned on a fair damsel, and asked her to oblige him with a glass of water. Water said she, in astonishment. Having been re-assured that it was water the gentleman re- quired, the maiden lightly and gaily trotted, as all thought, to the pump. But, gentle reader, can you imagine the consternation of the sturdy son of temperance when the bewitching young lady brought to him a glass of stout! It seemed as if she had Copp(ed) him, but he stoutly resisted the temptation. I hear that one of the Star agents, Mr. D. Jones, of Holton-road, is removing to larger premises at the corner of Pyke-street, Holton-road. I understand that the debate for the meeting next Tuesday of the Young Wales Society will be upon, Should a Welshman claim to give his evidence in the Law Courts in the Welsh language?" To-night (Friday) a general meeting in connec- tion with the Barry Cricket Club will be held at East Barry House at eight p.m. for the election of officers, &c- I need hardly, on behalf of the com- mittee, extend a hearty welcome to all cricket enthusiasts. A few weeks ago I mentioned the case of a Cadoxton person, who through the death of her father had become the possessor of a snug fortune. She has now, once more returned to Cadoxton, from attending her father's funeral and making arrangments for receiving the fortune. sis Her husband who up to the present has been employed as a haulier or anything else which would have brought him in an honest living has now, acting on his wife's commands, given up work. The wife and husband also think that they will enjoy life better at Penarth, so they are making arrangements to reside there. It is said that there is a possibility, through a bachelor uncle, of the lady becoming possessed of another fortune, even more considerable than her present one. What a lucky fellow that husband is, to be sure. A I am always pleased to chronicle the success of local tradesmen. At the annual trial of chrono- meters for Her Majesty's Government at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich, Mr. C. A. Williams, chronometer maker and optician, Barry Dock, was successful, his chronometer being classed so highly for merit that it has been purchased by the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty for the use of Her Majesty's Navy.
:ATTEMPTED SUICIDE AT PENARTH.
ATTEMPTED SUICIDE AT PENARTH. A DEPLORABLE STORY. At the Barry Dock Police-court on Monday Anna Halloran was charged on remand with attempting to committ suicide at Penarth on Monday last.- Thomas Norman said that on the 6th ult., at eleven o'clock, he saw prisoner rush down the pitching at Penarth Pier-head, and rush into the water. He procured the assistance of two boatmen, and got prisoner out. prisoner was the worse for drink. The two boatmen, too, prisoner home.—Prisoner said she could not recol- lectthe affair, but only recollected two men taking her home.—William Ellis, boatman, who came to the rescue of the prisoner, said that when she was pulled out she asked why they had not let her drown, and struggled with him.—Police-constable Henry H. Eaden said that on Tuesday, at 12.30, he arrested the prisoner at her lodgings 33, Grove-terrace.—In answer to the charge she said she went to her mother's house on the Satur- day, and forced to take some whisky hy her mother and others in the house. The whisky overcame her. On Sunday she had more whisky, and someone in her mother's house took her purse from her. She didn't know who took it. On Monday afternoon she received some more whisky. She didn't know her mother was alive until two months ago, and when she found her she was surprised to find one of her sisters in an asylum at Bridgend, and the other dead: She had lost one child herself, and one trouble heaped upon the other had caused her to do what she did.-Prisoner said she was sorry for what she had done, and he would not do it ngain. — The case was remanded until Monday for some friends to come forward to take her.-Prisoner said she would not care to go home to live, as her mother had not treated her properly.—Mr. Corbett remarked that it was a very disgusting case for a daughter to have been treated so in her mother's huuse.
SUMMER | I VERSUS ( WINTER. THE question is often asked:—" Are diseases or Ailments more prevalent in Winter than in the Summer season. The testimony of Medical men, as well as our own observation, clearly shows that there is a greater amount of sickness in the former season than in genial summer. We naturally associate winter with a low state of vitality. Persons of weak and delicate constitutions soon feel the effects of frost and snow, sleet and rain, cold winds and fierce storms. These have a depressing influence upon all persons, and various ailments, such as indigestion, nervousness, palpitation, bronchitis, low spirits, and several other forms of disease, are apt to attack us at such times. To resist these attacks successfully, it is necessary that the body be protected with warm clothing, and nourished with more or better food. It is evident then, that they who are most liable to, and suffer most from winter ailments, are those who are least able to procure the means of withstanding them, or to obtain medical aid to combat them, viz., the working classes and the poor. It behoves these, therefore, to endeavour to fortify -the constitution to enable them the better to cope with the dangers to which they are exposed. This can best be done by the use of good Vegetable Tonic. It is unanimously admitted that the best and most effective Vegetable Tonic known at present is that renowned preparation- G-vVILYM EVANS' BITTERS. GWILYM EVANS' BITTERS. GWILYM EVANS' BITTERS.

CONCERT AT CADOXTON.
CONCERT AT CADOXTON. On Wednesday evening a concert, promoted by the members of the Choral Union' was held at the Public. Hall. Vere-street. Rev. W. Matthews pre- sided over a good attendance, amongst whom were Misses Rees, Misses Summers, Misses Jones Misses Allen, Misses Davies (Shaftesbury Hotel), Misses Lewis, Mr. and Mrs. Davies, Mr. and Mrs. Dure, Mrs. James. Miss Jones, Miss Wild, Misses Phillips, Mr. Phillips, Mr. Edwards, Misses Howe, Miss Wensley, Mr. Benjamin Lewis, Miss B. C. Dunn, Misses Evans, Miss Stevens, Mr. W. Howe, Mr. Davies, Mr. Lewis (sec.), &c. The Barry String Band, under the conductor of Mr. Rees, kindly placed their services at the disposal of the committee, and, without a doubt, their contributions enhanced very considerably the success of the concert. Another great feature of interest was the appearance of Mr. and Mrs. Petty, both of whom are winners of eistedfoddau prizes, and they did not belie the expectations that had been raised. Mr. Petty gave a spirited rendering of "Cymru Fydd," and Mrs. Petty's first song, The children's home," was rendered in a style very seldom heard in this district. The other songs and the recitations were very creditably performed. At the conclusion of the programme Mr. Cornish proposed a vote of thanks to the Chairman for his kindness in occupying the chair.— Mr. Davies seconded, and the motion was carried unanimously.—The Chair- man briefly acknowledged the vote.—Mr. W. Howe, conductor of the Choral Union, proposed a vote of thanks to the performers for their kind services. They lall felt specially indebted to Mr. and Mrs. Petty and the Barry String Band for their kind services. (Hear, hear.) Mr. Howe also mentioned that the concert was got up to help to meet the expenses of the performance of the H The Prodigal Son," for which they were pre- paring, and which would take place on the 22nd March. The following was the programme :— Chairman's address; selections, Barry String Band; song, "Just a little sunshine," Miss Summers recitation, Little Bessie's prayer," Miss Dunn duet, The Lord is a man of war," Messrs. Howe and Lewis recitation, Deserve it," -Miss Nellie Howe Saxon march, Barry String Band song, Cymru Fydd," Mr. J. Petty song. The Old Maid," Miss Jenkins duet, Love and Pride," Mr. and Mrs. Petty; recitation, "Ship on Fire," Mr. Tom Price song, Dacw'r bwthvn gwyn i'm ganwyd," Mr. D. T. Howe song. The Children's Home," Mrs. Petty Primaverie," Barry String Band; pianoforte solo, Grand March," Miss Clode; finale, Hen wlad fy nhadau." Miss Howe tastefully accompanied the songs.
BARRY CONGREGATIONAL MUTUAL…
BARRY CONGREGATIONAL MUTUAL IMPROVEMENT SOCIETY- At a meeting of the above held on Wednesday evening (Feb. 8th), Rev. J. H. Stowell, M.A., in the chair, Mr. H. R. Paul, Barry Dock, read a very able paper on Phrenology," illustrating it by prac- tical demonstration and chart. The members present were invited to enter into a discussion at the conclusion of the paper, and Dr. Kelly, Mr. John O. Davies, Mr. F. W. Taylor, Mr. Hayes, and others took advantage of the invitation. Dr. Kelly stated that the outer case of the skull was not affected by the growth of the brain, and that, as a matter of fact, the portion of the brain attributed by phrenologists to be the organ of veneration was the centre in the brain controlling the action of the hip and thigh. He condemned the whole thing as an invention of persons who wanted to increase their incomes at the expense of the unedu- cated. After a very animated and interesting dis- cussion, which lasted long past the usual time for closing, the meeting separated, having spent a most enjoyable evening. The event next Wednesday in connection with the above is a lantern lecture entitled Religious Liberty, its Struggles and Victories, from 1688 to 1388," by the Rev. J. H. Stowell, M.A. It is hoped that a large number will be present to hear this interesting lecture. Admission free.
GRAND CONCERT AT CARDIFF.
GRAND CONCERT AT CARDIFF. APPEARANCE OF JOACHIM, THE GREAT VIOLINIST. The appearance of Joachim, whose position as the greatest living violin player is undisputed, at the Park-hall, Cardiff, on Thursday the 16th inst., is an event event in the musical records of the Principality. Besides London his appearances in England are confined almost entirely to Oxford and Cambridge, where honorary degrees have been confirmed upon him, and it is entirely as a personal favour to a friend interested in the success of the chamber music concerts given by the University College of South Wales and Monmouthshire that he is confiring upon Cardiff the distiction of taking part in the concert next week. He was first introduced to English audiences by his friend and teacher, Mendelesohn. Schumann was also his intimate friend, and dedicated to him his great Fantasia for violin, with orchestral accompaniment, and it was through him that many of Brahms's greatest works were first brought before the musical world. A few years ago his English admirers presented him with a Stradivarius violin, worth about £ 1.200, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of his first appearance as a. public player, and as we can hardly hope that his visit to Wales will be repeated, we are not surprised to hear that the greater number of the reserved seats in the Park- hall are already bespoken. The concert will begin at eight o'clock precisely, so that visitors from Cadoxton will be able to return by the late train. ">

STAR OF BARRY LODGE.—A very successful meeting of the above lodge was held in the Sea View Restaurant on Tuesday, Bro. Lucas, C.T., occupied the chair. Several persons were proposed for membership. Business having been got over, Bro. Robins, D.G.C.T., installed the officers for the new term as per list published by us last week. Addresses were then given by the newly-appointed officers, and a very pleasant meeting was brought to a close. ACCIDENT AT CADOXTON.—While playing in Vere-street on Monday night a boy named Edward Moss received severe injury to his eye by being kicked by another lad. The boy's eye was promptly attended to by Dr. Treha-rne, and he is now pro- gressing-favourably.
