The sale of work in connection with the Barry Parish Church, which it was proposed to have at Easter has been postponed to the 28th of September. By that time it is hoped to have a grand bazaar. All willing parishoners are wanted to be on the Committee, the first meeting of which has been held. BARRY PARISH CHURCH. The Barry Parish Church Magazine, in its issue for the present month, says In the last number we were able to state that our Men's Bible Class was increasing rapidly. Now, we are very glad to say that an experienced and energetic lady of our Church has undertaken to take charge of a Bible Class for Young Women in the Parish Hall, every Sunday afternoon at half-past two. There are many members of the congregation that have ser- vants. I wonder if they look after their spiritual interests, and see that they also keep the Sunday holy. At any rate, with one or two exceptions, they are seldom seen at public worship. This does not speak too well for the masters. If they let their household see what a great help the teaching of our Scriptural Church is to lead a holy life, their example would be irresistible, and they would inevitably follow it. Every householder should be able to say," Be ye followers of me, even as I am of Christ." Masters are in a way respon- sible to our Creator for their servants. We are commanded to rest in order to keep Sunday holy, and also to see that our servants do likewise. Those who have servants could not do better than advise them to attend the newly-formed Bible Class, where they may be taught carefully the way to Heaven. The Church is the most democratic institution in the world it gathers in of every kind, both bad and good,' and endeavours to make both better. Nobody can complain nowadays of scarcity of good, sound literature. We have now A very nice Parish Library of more than 150 volumes. Subscribers pay Id. a month, and may change their books every Monday from 6 to 7. Any additions made to the library in the way of interesting and useful books will be thankfully re- ceived and acknowledged." PAY UP NOW. Mr. C. Howe, rate-collector, appeared at the Barry Dock Police-court, and prosecuted a number of people in arrears with their rates.-Orders were made. THE CASE WAS ADJOURNED.

HE DID NOT GET THE SHEEP. William Carroll, Pencoitre, was charged at Barry Police-court with keeping a dog which had damaged two sheep, the property of William E. Brock, farmer, of Cadoxton, on the 23rd ult.- Prosecutor proved seeing the dog worrying his sheep on the date mentioned, and damaging two ewes in lamb to the extent of 35s.-Defendant was ordered to pay X2 and costs.-Defendant asked if he was to have the sheep, but he did not get them.. BUSINESS ON THEIR OWN ACCOUNT.
