CONSERVATISM AT CADOXTON. A public meeting was held on Wednesday even- ing at the Public Hall, Cadoxton, under the auspices of the local branch of the Ely Habitation of the Primrose League. There was but a small attendance, and the chair was occupied by Dr. Sixsmith, Barry Dock, who delivered a suitable epening address, being followed by an address on Conservatism generally by Mr. Robbins, a delegate from the Grand Council of the Primrose League, London, who, in the course of his remarks, condemned as an unjust and unwarrantable measure the Welsh Suspensory Bill, and urged members of the Primrose League to do all in their power to educate, especially those who were in- different so far as politics were concerned. On the motion of Mr. Wallace Davies, seconded by Mr. E. Lloyd, a vote of thanks was accorded the chairman, and Mr. Robbins for their addresses. Misa Edwards, St. Andrew's Rectory, played .musical selections during the evening. A WELSH LECTURE. was given by the Rev Morris Morgan, of Swansea -on Monday night at the Welsh Methodist Chapel, Barry Dock, on "Temperance." The chapel was well filled, and the Rev W. Daniell occupied the ,chair. A most able and interesting lecture was given, after which the Rev W. Daniells referred to the Marl Pit Clubs at G-rangetown, and said it was a shame that such things should exist, and that something should be done to try and stop them. A vote of thanks was passed to the chair- man for presiding, and to the lecturer for his able leoture. At the close several came forward and -signed the pledge. THE NEW CURATE AT CADOXTON. The Rev. J. H. Evans, late curate of Llanisheii read himself in as bilingual curate of Cadoxton Parish at the Parish Church last Sunday morning.

TRADE AT BARRY. Trade was fairly brisk again at Barry Dock last week, the coal shipments up to Friday morning amounting to 81,748 tons 6 cwt. A SHIP ON FIRE AT BARRY DOCK. On Sunday morning it was discovered.that fire iiad broken out on the Belfast sailing ship Prince Downshire, at Barry Dock, where she was taking in a cargo of coals for Batavia. The Barry Com- pany's fire float and the vessel's crew were quickly directing water upon the portion of the cargo in the main and No. 3 hatches, where the outbreak had taken the firmest hold, and in a few hours the flames were extinguished. The cause of the fire is not known. The extent of the damage must be considerable. NOTICES OF DIVIDENDS. The following notices or dividends were gazetted on Friday last :—William J. Frederick, Dock-road. East Barry, cabinet maker and upholsterer first and final dividend 3s. 4d. in the Z, payable May 29th, at the Official Receiver's, Cardiff. Lemuel Roberts, lately residing at Iddesleigh-street, Cadox- ton-juxcfa-Barry, and lately trading as Roberts Bros. and Co., at Station-road, Cadoxton-juxta- Barry, buildera' merchant, now residing and trading at Llancarvan, Glamorganshire, licensed victualler; first and final dividend Is. 3M. in the &, payable May 30th, at the Official Receiver's, Cardiff, BARRY WAS SECOND. We are very pleased to state that we have now obtained a copy of the ad judication which was given at the Whit-Monday Eisteddfod held at Caerphilly on the Barry Male Voice Party, under the veteran conductorship of Mr. D. Farr. The adjudicators said that the voices were excellent. 'The opening was grand, and neither of the other IIJarties approached them in this respect. The solo was exquisitely rendered by Mr. Gwilym Thomas, Porth. The tenors were at times rather cloudy. There was a slight failing in the intonation, but the agitato was done magnificiently, and from this part to the end the performance was really excellent, the first tenors coming in for special praise for the manner in which they took up the leads. The successful party scored owing to their excellent voices, and also on account of their being more experienced. The competition was considered the best of the day. Nevertheless the Barry Party have no cause to regret the victory they achieved, and we should certainly advise them to go ahead, and thus be in a position to compete ere long in our National Eisteddfodau. A CHILD RUN OVER AT BARRY DOCK. On Tuesday afternoon last as the little daughter of Mr. Conyers. clothiers, Thompson-street, Barry Dock, was playing with some other children in the street, a railway delivery cart was driven by at a rapid pace, and kuocking the child down the wheel passed over the body. The child was picked up, and Dr. Livington having been sent for, he ex- amined the youthful sufferer, but found that the child had escaped serious injury most miraculously. The cart was driven by the son of Mr. J. E. Walker, railway carrier, Barry Dock. "PANGLOSS' VISIT TO THE PARK MUSIC HALL.

Between midnight and one o'clock on Sunday morning Mr. Edward Price, a Custom House official, residing in High-street, was awakened by a noise, apparently in his back yard. Getting up he discovered a ladder placed against the house with a man upon it. He also heard voices, but the nocturnal visitors safely effected an escape. During the morning the latter was claimed by Mr. T. Ward, timekeeper on the Barry Railway, who alleged it was taken from the back of his house. The matter is in the hands of the police, who are making inquiries. REPORTED BURGLARY BY BOYS AT BARRY DOCK. On Tuesday night last an entry was bur. glariously effected into No. 27, Kingsland-crescent, Barry Dock, and considerable mischief was done. apparently by boys. The husband, a dock fore- man, was at work at the time, but the wife, who was in bed, was alarmed by the noise of the rummaging of the young theives in the parlour downstairs. They got off, however, before they could be caught. The matter has been reported to the police, who are making enquiries. BHYN SEION CHAPEL, COURT-ROAD, CADOXTON.

Around Penarth & Cogan. -+- _C- TRADE AT THE DOCK. At Penarth Dock last week activity continued to be displayed at the tips, the quantity of coal placed on board being nearly 50,000 tons. On Monday a record was effected at this dock, so far as rapid loading in the port of Cardiff is con- cerned, a ship arriving on the morning tide, and having taken about 1,200 tons on board she left on the same tide. CASUALTY AT PENARTH DOCK. On Saturday while the ss. Ranzani, of New- castle, commanded by Captain Saunderson, was leaving Penarth Dock, bound for Barcelona, she collided with the quay wall, and was so damaged that she quickly filled with water, and settled down the EastiMUd. THE ACCIDENT TO A STEAMER AT PENARTII.—LETTER FROM MR. BEASLEY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH WALES DAILY SEWS." SIB,—The statement in the South Wales Daily News of to-day with respect to the accident to the steamship Ranzini at Penarth Dock on Saturday is inaccurate. The facts are thas on Saturday after- noon when she left her berth in the dock to pro- ceed to sea, the seamen had too much way on her. When about to enter the lock, and before she could be stopped, she damaged her bows with her anchor, which was hoisted close up to the hawse pipe. The plate being under water, the captain was recommended either to stop in the basin or to go on to the East Mud for repairs. The captain preferred the latter, and proceeded to sea by the following tide.-I am, &c., H. BEASLEY, Cardifl, May 26th. (Manager) T.V.R. VISIT OF THE REV. C. SILVESTER HORNE, M.A. The Rev. C. Silvester Horne, M.A.. of Kensington Congregational Church, London, is announced to preach on Tuesday evening next at the Penarth Congregational Church, Windsor-road,. Mr. Horse, notwithstanding his youth, has already become one of the recognised leaders of Congre- gregationalism in London, and his name and abilities are known throughout the country. DROWNED AT THE DOCK. On Saturday afternoon, at the Penarth Police- station, Mr. E. B. Reece, coroner, held an inquiry into the circumstances attending the death of John Casey, a married man, donkeyman, about 34 years old, hailing from Waterford, who fell into Penarth Dock on the night of the 25th ult. while attempting to get aboard the s.s. Cardiff Castle, lying under No. 10 tip.-Charles Baker, of Grange- town, a fireman aboard the same ship, deposed that on the night in question, about 9.45, he was in company with deceased, and went aboard first over the gangway, and in leading the way said, "Be careful, John, in coming up the ladder, and received in reply, I'm all right." He then proceeded to the engine-room, and at 4 o'clock next morning went to call the deceased as previously requested, but could not find him. He next went ashore, think- ing deceased was sleeping in the subway, and, not finding him there, commenced, in conjunction with the crew, dragging the dock. Later on the dock policeman began grappling, and ultimately found the body between 3 and 4 o'clock the same day.—Josiah Saunder, dock policeman (sworn) stated that deceased had no marks on the body, and must therefore have pitched clear into the water.—A verdict of Found drowned was re- turned. HOTEL ROBBERY. At a very early hour on Saturday morning, St. Fagan's Hotel. Penarth, was entered by means of a fanlight at the back of the premises, and the thief or thieves effecting an entrance to the bar through a sliding window, robbed the till, taking £ 2 in silver, and all the coppers. They also took several half-pint bottles of whisky. Information was given to the polio this morning, and a clue to the perpetrators has been discovered, a handkerchief containing some coppers and several empty whisky bottles having been found on Penarth Cliffs.

LOOKING AFTER THE HEALTH OF BARRY AND CADOXTON. A meeting of the Health Committee of the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board was held on Friday evening at the Office of the Board, Vere- Btreet, Cadoxton. There were present Dr. O'Donnell (chairman), Mr. W. Thomas (Barry), Mr. W. Paterson, Mr. Thomas (Hayes), Mr. J. A. Hughes (clerk to the Board), Dr. Neale (medical officer of health), Mr. Pardoe (surveyor), and Mr. Leyshon (inspector of nuisances). 1 CHOLERA PRECAUTIONS. Dr. Neale referred to several letters he had re- specting the engaging of a tug for quarantine purposes in the event of an outbreak of cholera. Upon the motion of Mr. Ihomas (Barry) it was decided to engage the tug Sarah Ann Jane (Messrs. Morgan and Brown) at £ 18 per week, if required, and in the event of the tug not being wanted the Local Board to pay a sum of £ 5 to the owners and that the Clerk draw up the necessary agree- ment. Mr. Thomas (Hayes) thought that the Board had adopted a very wise course in providing against any possible outbreak of cholera. He thought the £ 5 would be well spent if the tug was not re- quired. It was decided to recommend the Local Board to adopt the motion of Mr. W. Thomas. THE FLUSHING QUESTION. The Inspector of Nuisance reported that he had made house to house inspection in 37 streets. He had eerved 1,018 notices for flushing apparatus, of which number 59 had been complied with. A question arose as to whether the Board should compel owners of empty houses to at once put in flushing cisterns. Mr. Thomas (Barry) said the children of the neighbourhood would break them all to pieces if cisterns were placed in unoccupied houses. The Chairman considered it was the duty of the police to protect property. After some consideration it was decided that owners of unoccupied property be allowed to put the flushing cisterns into the houses when occupied, provided they gave a written undertaking to the Clerk to that effect. The Inspector of Nuisances further reported that 19 other notices had been seived to abate nuisances. He had inspected the dairies, milk shops, and other establishments where food was sold, and found them in a satisfactory condition. Fifty-nine visits had been made to infected houses, while 151 vessels had been inspected, 69 which came from foreign ports. In, all cases where nuisances existed notices had been served. It was decided to take proceedings against those persons who had not complied with the notice to abate nuisances. SEAMEN'S BOARDING- HOUSES. A letter was read from the Board of Trade with regard to the Provisional Order in Council under the Merchant Shipping Act asked for by the Local Board, and stating that it would be carried o»t in due course. The Clerk stated that the Local Board asked that no one be allowed to keep a seaman's boarding house except registered by the Board. SANITARY MATTEKS. The Surveyor submitted an estimate by which it appears that the cost of erecting six urinals will be about £455. The Clerk was instructed to write to the Local Government Board respecting the same. The Surveyor also submitted various accounts which had been presented for payment, and after they had been examined the meeting was con- cluded.
THE LOCAL BOARDS' FINANCES. A meeting of the Finance Committee of the Local Board was held at the Board's Offices on Tuesday afternoon. General Lee presiding, there being also present Alderman J. C. Meggitt, Dr. O'Donnell. Mr. Paterson, Mr. Pardoe (surveyor), Inspector Leyshon, MrvLewis (collector), and Mr. J. A. Hughes (clerk). THE ORDINARY MONTHLY BILLS amounting to £ 1,796 4s. Id.. which included a sum of £ 159 9s. lOd. for Parliamentary expenses were passed. The various books of the collector, clerk, treasurer, surveyor, and inspector were examined and found to be correct. u-
PENARTH LOCAL BOARD. A meeting of the Public Works and Health Committee was held on Monday night, Councillor W. B. Shepherd presiding. Letters were read complaining of the cabstands. Dr. Moynan in his letter stated the one opposite his house was an unmitigated nuisance, the stench being insufferable, and his patients had to elbow their way to his surgery through the cabmen who congregated opposite his house. The language of the men, too, he complained of as being, to put it mildly, most unparliamentary, which precluded any lady from sitting in the lawn by his house. He urged the Board to remove the stand. The Board decide to abate both nuisances, and gave orders for the stand to be daily washed down, and for the men to be prosecuted if any more com- plaints were preferred. Dr. Nell, the medical officer of health, in his report for March and April, said 87 births had been registered, making the rate 41-3 per 1,000 per annum and 30 deaths, being at the rate of 15. Only one case of measles had terminated fatally, notwithstanding the serious epidemic, and only one of zymotic disease. He urged the Board, in view of a cholera visitation, to provide an isolation hospital, as well as a disinfecting apparatus. The Board appointed a committee to confer with the doctor in ascertaining the approximate cost of such a scheme. With reference to the boarding-houses, the Clerk (Mr. W. J. Morris) informed him that the draft scheme of the new bye-laws, which had recently been submitted to the Local Government Board, had been sanctioned.
OBIGflNAL POETRY. FONTYGARRY BAY. 'Twas on the evening of a day I took a stroll along this bay, Where pleasure oft is found The birds had then begun their song, Which cheer'd me as I walked along. While lambs were dancing round. Here harmony and pleasure meet, While violets with their perfume sweet Along the hedges grow With daisies on the meadow fair, And lerns, the noted maiden hair, Adorn the cliff below. This cliff has faced for ages past The beating waves and bitter blast Still firm by nature's hand, And from its bold and lofty height To every one it is a sight, Magnificently grand. For all who come in summer time From busy town or distant clime, Here for awhile to stay, Do all admire the splendid view, The cliff, the rocks, and pebbles too Along this rippling bay. For here they come for spree and health, Some working men, some men of wealth, To spend their holiday Amid these varied scenes so grand, The rolling waves and placid sand Within this lovely bay. And when the day begins to close, The time when all should seek repose, They homeward wend their way Renewed in strength, refreshed in mind, But loath to leave this spot behind, This charming, lovely bay.

IlA VE YOU EVER BEEN TO BARRY ISLAND? One of the prettiest and most healthy places in the Barry district is the large stretch of undu- lating land known as Barry Island. To strangers the term "island" may seem somewhat out of place, as the onward march of commercial pros- perity has to a great extent robbed it of its just claim to the title. But once it was surrounded with water, and as Barry Island it will. we believe, ever be known. Long before Barry Docks were constructed and anterior to the period of commer- cial activity the beauties of Barry Island were widely known, and large numbers of persons yearly visited it. The Island is within a few minutes walk of the railway station, and ere long that portion of the journey will be made more easy as the Railway Company propose constructing A TRAMWAY bo the edge of the lovely sandy bay. Once upon the rising ground the scene which meets the eye is one that will scarcely be forgotten, and those who have ever enjoyed a pleasant visit to Barry Island like Oliver Twist will ask for more. Following the road which skirts Whitmore Bay one soon arrives at the high ground-from which the Pier stretches out into the sea. On one hand the stretch of water away to the Atlantic meets the eye, while on. the other sIde-up channel—the distant shore of Somerset, and particularly on a clear day, afford. much to those who delight in studying all that are sssential to a, place which claims to be a pleasant sea- side resort. In the background the beautiful landscape of Porthkerry with its well timbered hills add much to the picturesque view. Standing upon the extreme edge of the arm of Lmd upon I i pleasant day there is SOT A- MOBE GRAXD SIGHT OR PLEASANT ER. PLACE ON THE SHORES OF THE BRISTOL CHANNEL, f ind what a contrast ? On one side of the point the land stretches away, and forms a beach of pebbles, while on the other side it is nothing but sand, gaud everywhere Barry Island can well boast that it has within, itself all that excursionists and pleasure seekers can desire. The fine stretch of sand enclosed; within the cliffs of Whitmore Bay arc considered to be the finest and nrost safe in the Bristol Channel, and the number of persons who yearly take advantage of the bathing facilities offered by' its waters is far larger thau a stranger visiting the place for a day would imagine. Time ilone will give to the Barry Island'its just reward in its claim to offer to the pleasure seeker health, pleasure,, and beautifully safe bathing. Passing along the edge of the cliffs of the bay we come to the high ground immediately above Barry Docks, and those who feel that they desire to rest but still see all that is passing around can find no better vantage place than the headland known as Nell's Point. From there they cam see not only all the vessels passing up and down the Bristol Channel but also THAI' BEEHIVE OF INDUSTRY—BARRY DOCK. But those who would seek after a day in the I country as well as at the seaside, w-ill also find that Barry Island can give it them. In the hollows between the two hills there are wild flowers in profusion, beautiful fields and places for picnics, h tea parties, &c.; while close at hand are establish- jl ments where provisions of all kinds can be pur- chased at reasonable charges.. We feel bound to say that those who cater for the public on Barry Island are by no means exorbitant in charges. Barry Island has been blessed by nature with many things which man cannot provide at other seaside places. It has beauty within itself, and we can only wish that those who read these few lines will visit Barry Island and see for themselves.
A WORD AS TO THE BEA UTIES OF SULLY. I The close proximity of the village and the parish of Sully to the rapidly-growing Welsh Chicago, Barry, has brought them into prominence as a comparatively undeveloped portion of a rising dis- trict, and increased its value both as a pleasant holiday resort and for building purposes. The many beauties of Sully, its beach, its unequalled ¡ and romantic views, its fine pastoral scenery, all combine to make it a favourite resort not only of the inhabitants of Cadoxton-Barry but right through the district to Cardiff, and Barry Island: has in it a no mean rival for popular favour. True, it has not a smooth-sanded' beach, like that for which Barry Island is justly famed, nor can it offer to the visitors more varied views than the Island can. To get to the one attraction of Barry Island the visitor has at present to walk over a track of land, almost without many pleasing features. Such if not the case with Sully the walk may be a longer one, but it is more than compensated by the LOVELY AND ROMANTIC BEAUTIES TO BE SEEN. ON EVERY SIDE. Once on the beach one feels repaid for their walk, and take in the delightful marine scenery, the sweep of which takes in the Flat and Steep Holms, Weston-super-Mare, and the bold background of the Somersetshire hills, towering up grandly distinct on a clear day. Sully Village into which we call upon our return journey, is not at all pretentious as to size. It is a quaint little place on the side of a hill, simply ensconsed in a bower of trees, with picturesque cottages., and a very handsome church. From the church yard rich in old and weather-stained memorials to many a village forefather long gathered to that bourne from which no traveller returns, may be obtained a fine view of a beautiful stretch of pasture country .with here and there a glint of the channel gleaning on a fine day like a silver band, and right away with Barry Island as a background, a forest of masts of vessels docked in the largest and most convenient single dock in the world," Sully Church is a favourite resort of Cadoxton people of a Sunday evening, they combining the delights of a good walk with an intellectual treat by attend- ing service at the church. Lord Wimborne is the principal landed pro- prietor of Sully, and it is stated on good authority that but for the meagre supply of water for manu- facturing purposes it was his lordships intention to transfer his famous iron works to Sully, instead of renting land at Cardiff from the Marquis of Bute. Lord Windsor has however, noted the value of the place as a residental property, and PLANS ARE PREPARED FOR THE ERECTION OF VILLA RESIDENCES. Hence the action of the authorities when, some little time since, the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board applied for a site on Sully Island upon which to build a cholera hospital in refusing the application. Sully parish is divided into two farms, one the Cog, being occupied by Mrs. Thomas, and the other, the Hayes, by Mr. William Thomas. The value of the land from an agricultural stand- point, is shown by the fact that under his able direction and supervision, Mr. William Thomas is one of the most successful stock-breeders and crop raisers in the Principality. His name is well- known throughout the West of England at the yearly agricultural shows, where his services are in demand as a judge of fat stock, &c. The popular rector of the parish is the Rev. E. F. Daniels, whose residence is very near the church. The proposed new dock will take in a portion of the Moors on the outskirts of Sully, and as an inevitable consequence it will follow that the sur- rounding land will be built •upon. For along time past vague rumours have been prevalent in the district of the starting of manufactories on the Moors. There is no doubt that, although they were a little too premature, the rumours in the course of a few years will become accomplished facts. This means a great deal for Sully. The manufactories springing up will at once create a need for artizan dwellings close by, thus drawing Sully into a participation of the benefits accruing to the district. By the establishment of ths Barry Dock and Railway Company's railway across from I. Cardiff, Penarth, and Cadoxton to Sully is obtained by means of the Taff Vale Railway Company, which has a station at Sully. L

PORTHKERRY PARK, Porthkerry Park may, perhaps, be designated one of the most beautiful and grotesque holiday spots in the greater portion of the county; equalled only in the neighbourhood of Barry by the charming park at Cwrtyrala. The drive from Barry Railway Station to the park at Porthkerry is a most delightful one, the distance being less than two miles, along a beautifully wooded road- way, and abundantly studded along by aspects of sea and landscape scenery of the most lovely and diversified character. In the park are expansive slopes of greensward, and although the public have no specific right to its use, still, through the generosity of the owners, the members of the Roinilly family, the park is readily thrown open to all comers, especially during the summer months, when Barry is visited by hundreds and thousands of pleasure and holiday seekers. At the extreme end of the* Park from Barry is the pretty little Parish Church of Porthkerry, standing on an eminence over- looking the fine mansion, belonging to the Romilly family, the present occupier of which is Couuty Councillor John Cory, J.P. On the roadside leading from the Park to Porthkerry-ro.id, is the Rectory, tenanted by the Venerable Rector, Canon Allen. The Park abounds with spots lending a diversity of interest and enjoyment to the visitors, and in making these passing references to a scource of attraction which the people of the Barry district are naturally and justly proud of, we feel prompted to express a hope that at some future time, ere many years have elapsed, the local authorities may take steps to acquire, if possible, the lovely park at Porthkerry for public purposes of recreation and enjoyment.
"VOICES FROM AFAR." [BY THE MAN IN THE MOON.] A Cadoxton gentleman went into a barber's shop in the neighbourhood to get a shave. Whilst awaiting his turn, he consulted one of the time tables that were placed in a small pocket hanging on the wall. When he was going away he said, I will take this time-table, as I see you have two, and here is the penny for it," when the following conversation ensued :— BLtrber-Vot for you give me von penny more ? Gentleman -1 said I would take this time table, and that is the penny for it. Barber—Non.non, dot is von schilling. Gentleman—A shilling Why, my Aunt Sarah's torn cat, its printed price one penny what do you, eh—— Barber—Veil I tell you. One day a shentleman come in and say-" Would I have my name in time tables, one schilling for ze month." I say, Yes," and when he bring me zat leetle book, I say, You scharge me von schilling for dot leetle book. I vill not pay. You impostor, I expect beeg book for von schilling, not a leetle zing like dut;" and he srew zee books down on zee floor, and ven he goes away I pick zem up and put 'em in zat leetle case. You can have von for von schilling, but not for von penny. Oh no, I no fool. You pay me de schilling;; an' I put him in de case ready for see man when he come next time. Gentleman-Well, you are a josser. Don't you see you've got an advertisement in the book, and that is what he charged you for, not for the book. Never mind, though. I'll get one at Townsend's, or somewhere else. ON WESTON HILL. Gent—What tree is ttut ? 1 Boy-A wooden one, sir. (And then the boy dodged.) HEARD IN VERE-STREET. First Voice-Look here, if you can let me have £ 100 I. know where to make ;£ 50 of it in less than a week. Second Voice—I've no doubt you. do, and most likely make the £100 of it in less than a fortnight. First Voice—Oh, I don't mean like that. Second Voice-Of course not; but I haven't got JUOO. Good-bye.

Penarth, was charged with selling' bread otherwise than by weight. P.C. William Abrahams deposed on the 16th ultimo he visited defendant's premises in Arcott- street, and purchased a quartern loaf. Defendant did,not weigh the bread, and witness gave 4M for it. He then told defendant he intended weighing ii. Witness did so, and found it 2oz. short. Mr David, for the defense denied the offence, and said that the bread was weighed. To substantiate this statement he called Charles Hayter, son or the defendant, who swore that his father weighed the bread before he delivered it to the constabie. The case was dismissed. George John, of Dinas Powis, baker. was charged with selling bread otherwise than by weight on the 16thult. Fined 5s. Henry Jenkins, Penarth, for a similar offence, was fined 53., as was also William 1-Iayton and Henry Adam a; Thomas Walker was charged with a like offence. Mr. Belcher defended, and contended that the bread was fancy bread. Police-constable Richard Henry Thomas proved the case. Mr. Belcher said he designated it fancy bread because it was dearer, for its shape, and because of its special manufacture. For example Mr. Belcher quoted the case of Regina r. Wood. The Chairman of the Bench (Mr. O. H.Jones) thought the crn.v-oi the matter was whether the bread had been asked for by weighs by the con- stable asking for a half-quartern loaf. After a consultation, the Bench decided that when asked for a hair-quartern loaf the seller should weigh it; but as there were special circum- stances in the case the Bench would dismiss it with1 a caution.
