NARROW ESCAPE OF A YOUNG LADY AT BARRY. On Tuesday evening last just preceding the evening service at the opening of the newly-built I Penuel Welsh Calvinistic Welsh Methodist Chapel at Barry, some little sensation was caused by the falling of a heavy gas chandelier pendent from the centre of the roof. Fortunately, no greater damage was caused than the striking of a young lady's nose by the falling artice. The inj ured organ bled very freely indeed, but the lesser inj ury was lost sight of by those present who perceived how narrowly the young lady's head escaped being very severely injured.

Hopkin Smith in their trouble.
SEVERN VOLUNTEER DIVISION ROYAL ENGINEERS. v "A" COMPANY. A Company of the Severn Volunteer Division last Saturday afternoon at Company Drill at Barry. Royal Engineers Sub-Marine Miners were engaged The Barry Detachment comprises one-half of A Company, and the remaining half Company came down from Cardiff by the three o'clock train under the command of Lieutenant Flint. The Company were marched up to the field at the back of Wenvoe-terrace, Barry, and were there put through various movements. The drill last from quarter past three to quarter to seven. The Company was under the command of Lieutenant J. A. Hughes. The men were then marched to the Barry Hotel where a substantial meal was provided for them by the officers of the Company. This was followed by a smoking concert at which Lieutenant Hughes presided supported by Lieutenant Flint and and Surgeon-Lieut. Edwards. The concert ter- minated at 10 o'clock, and after God Save the Queen" was sung the men marched to the train, the Cardiff men returning to that town by the 10 train.
IMPENDING REMOVAL OF SERGT. EVANS, OF BARRY, The many friends of the worthy sergeant of police for Barry, Acting sergeant Evans, will learn with regret that he will finish his official connection with the Barry district at the end of this month. During the time of his residence in the district Sergeant Evans has gained a host of admirers by the sharp and energetic manner in which he has carried out his duties, whilst his courteous demeanour has gained for him many friends. Sergeant Evans is one of the strongest supporters of the ambulance movement in the district, he having been a member of the St. John's Society for many years, and a very efficient one. too. He was appointed drill-in- structor of the recently formed AMBULANCE BRIGADE, and it is satisfactory to know that the society will not lose the veteran experience, as he does not intend to sever his connection with the brigade, but to,come down to the drills. Sergeant Evans is also a member and official of the Barry Welsh Con- gregational Church, who, by his departure, will lose a good worker and supporter. Llandaif will be the scene of Sergeant Evans' future work, and we trust that there he will be as happy as he has been in Barry.
SCHOOL TEACHERS ENJOY THEMSELVES AT DINAS POWIS. The members of the Cardiff Assistant Teachers'. Association held a most enjoyable pic-nic at Dinas Powis on Saturday last, when about 150 of the members and their friends were present. In the afternoon the party, under Mr. Mockford's guidance, went for a ramble through the grounds of Cwrt-yr- ala, which had been thrown open to them by Miss Rous. At five o'clock a move was made to Dinas Powis School, where an excellent tea had been provided by the Recreation Committee, the tables being decorated with lovely flowers and fruit, given by Major-General Lee, Mr. D. T. Alexander. and Miss Rous. Canon Edwards and General Lee were. present at tea, and spoke a few kindly words to the teachers, placing their work second to that of no other profession. After tea all journeyed to The Mount, the residence of Major-General Lee, who had placed his grounds at the disposal of the party. Tennis and bowls were indulged in, and the meeting concluded with a ceuple of hours' r dancing on the lawn. The pic-nic was the most successful ever held by the Cardiff teachers, and too much praise cannot be bestowed upon the ladies and gentlemea who so hospitably enter- tained them. |

AUNT MARIA'S DIARY OF THE DOINGS ROUND THE TOWNS. — I understand that Mr. George I Harvey, engineer, who accidentally injured his eye on board a steamer at Barry Dock last week by a piece of aplint steel, is doing well. Mr. Harvey belongs to Fairlawn, Putney, Surrey. # Please for a box of sunlight." asked a lady of a Barry Dock grocer on Saturday evening last. The assistant behind the couuter regretted that they did not keep sunlight boxed up in fact, they had a difficulty, he said, in keeping the rays of the sun out of their window. The lady saw the joke, and explained that it was a box of '• Sunlight Soap she wanted. 0 >I: I have been asked whether I have seen any of the snap-shot photographs taken by the knight of the camera, who visited Barry with the Federated Chambers of Trade, but I regret to say that I have not. Perhaps this is welcome news to a few. Who is the gentleman that has spent so much time at Cadoxton Common during the past few days armed with a binocular glass. I have heard it hinted that he has fixed his gaze on a certain spot, and takes stock of all who visit it. Who gave you that black-eye, madam ?" asked the Barry magistrate. That makes no difference, sorr." said the fair daughter of Erin my features is my own." The Barry Bill was read a second time in the House of Lords on Friday. :> Not only do the people of this neighbourhood believe that there is a great future before Barry, but it is evident that the Joint Police Committee are of the same opinion. They intend taking time by the forelock, and to enlarge the Police Station in view of the future developement of the district. Mr. Arthur Williams, M.P., voted square" with the Government in the Alien Division on the Home Rule Bill. •if It will, no doubt, interest those who desire to see the advancement of Barry that Mr. F. J. Beavan considers the proposal to form a harbour trust for Cardiff absurd. & The Local Veto Bill has been withdrawn. A gratifying feature of the social gathering lleld last Wednesday evening at the Welsh Mission Church, Holton-road. Barry Dock, was the fact that the mmisters of the Welsh Independents, Baptists, and Methodists, Cadoxton, delivered addresses of felicitation and welcome to the Rev. J. H. Evans, late of Llanishen. as the first curate of the Welsh Church in Cadoxton Parish. The audience also was composed of members of all denominations in the district. Dr. P. J. O'Donnell, chairman of the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board, was amongst those present on the occasion of the complimentary dinner and presentation of a testimonial to Alderman Cory, J.P., last Thursday evening at Cardiff, and the popular doctor proposed the toast of The Mayor .and Corporation." Is it not a fact that the Government Officials went fishing caught a large eel, but as soon as it saw their faces it was so paralised with fear that it flew overboard on the other side to the disgust of all the faoes in the boat? ;;< Another correspondent tells me that the Board of Trade Officers of this port went fishing on the "7th inst., and had the luck to catch a very fine eel, but when the poor fish was drawn above the surface it lifted its eyes upwards, and seeing the society it was about to enter, it strongly declined, and much preferred to return to its old home the briny to the utter disgust of the officers, who, after spending so many toilsome hours had to return minus bait and fish, and what is more they were fairly tailpiped. ;i: :« Our editor has handed me the following letter, which I am bound to say speaks for itself :-— TO THE EDITOR. gIR<—Kindly allow me a small space in your valuable jottings to correct a little error -which appeared in "Aunt Maria's Diary" on June the 9th, in connection with the officers of H.M. Customs and their fishing excursion., I think Aunty's sight must be failing her, so she 'had better acquaint a practical optician and get a pair of goggles, so as not to make such an erroneous report again. I being a member of the fishing party, feel it my duty to tell you that we did get a bite, and -what is more, we caught sufficient fish to en- courage us to take another excursion of the same kind. Now, Aunty, I must tell you once and for all if ever you make such a false report again, I shall make you a present of a nice bit of fish with the bones well extracted so as not to hurt your dear old gums.—Yours &c., COSMOPOLITE. The handsome illuminated address and silver inkstand which the townspeople of Barry intend ■prasenting to Mr. J. Robinson. M.Inst., C.E., this evening (Friday) is at present on view in the shop window of Messrs. Smith-Jones and Co., iron-- aaongers, Holton-road, Barry Dock. jfe. W. Mein, East Barry House, and secretary of the Barry Railway Company, has kindly accepted the presidency of the Barry Quoit Club in place of Mr. J. Robinson, M.Inst .C.E., resigned. A movement is on foot for t erection of a Welsh Church for Cadoxton parish, and steps are about being taken to secure a suitable site some- where off Holton-road, Barry Dock. It is stated that at a local wedding quite recently I a good lady searched her cupboards in the hope of finding a supply of rice, but failing to obtain that article took with her a pound of tapioca. When she returned she was in a awful fix as she was afraid that I should hear about it. Of course I was told, and last week hinted as much. :Ie A nice young lady was in church the other Sunday, and in moving from one seat to another put her foot on a gentleman's hat. I need scarcely say that her foot left an impression behind on the young man's head gear. As she moved it away he discovered what had happened, and, gallant-like, assured the lady that it was all his fault for puttir g his hat too far under the seat. But she thought otherwise. The fence on the Common at Church-road has once again been cut down. What hope is there that it will ever survive the revengeful one's wrath. A simple-minded old man at Porthcawl received the usual card a day or two ago before the Local Board election advising electors to poll early. A canvasser called and urged the old man to vote for a certain bunch of candidates. "No," said the old fellow firmly, I am going to vote for the lady." "There is no lady candidate," said the canvasser. Yes, there is," exclaimed the irate old fellow here's her name-Poll Early." Now I have been told that if there is any one thing which a married man dislikes more than 1*. another it is to be thought that he is not boss of his own house, but it is adding insult to injury when a commercial on the tramp calls at his door and requests him to ask his mother if she will buy some brass polish. Cowbridge Fair will be held on the 24th inst. # Mr. J. Robinson, M.Inst.C.E., late of East Barry House, having resigned his long connection as president of the Barry Cricket and Football Clubs, we understand that Dr. Neale, J.P., Barry, has kindly consented to accept the vacancy. I learn that Messrs. Barnett and Son, the popular pawnbrokers and outfitters of Cardiff and Cadoxton, have decided to give a silver watch, valued C 2 2s., as a prize at the sports to be held at Cadoxton on the 21st inst. # The members of the Court Cadoxton (No. 7,712) of the Ancient Order of Foresters will hold their fourth annual dinner at the Victoria Hotel on Wednesday, 28th inst. I am told that it will be a very grand affair. Leeds House, Holton-road, was opened on Satur- day last. with a splendid assortment of boots, shoes, and clothing. Messrs. Barnett and Son intend opening a branch establishment at 101), Holton-road, Barry Dock, where they will carry on a pawnbroking and out- fitting business. *2 Are there no girders in this subway ? asked a high official of the Barry Company one day last week. "No," was the innocent reply of the sweeper. It is congregated iron ;¡:: Whenever a certain gentleman of the Barry Railway is seen wearing a high hat—and it was high one day last week—you may rely the social atmosphere of Barry Dock has undergone a periodical change, and there are some directors about. I have a bag and chest to leave here, please," observed a sailor at the door of the cloak-room of one of the stations on the Barry Railway this week. My name is Patrick Kelly, and I am a German, born in Geneva." The son of Erin smoled a smile. It is gratifying to know that there is a probabi- lity of the Rev. Hugh Price Hughes, the popular London divine, paying a visit to Barry next month, and delivering an address at the great temperance demonstration. Lady Llanover always commences to mow her hay on the 12th of June. It is stated that Mr. Lascelles Carr, of Western Mail fame, was actually trained for the pulpit. Alderman John Cory, J.P., is announced to take the chair at the evening meeting on the occasion of the laying of the foundation stone of the Spurgeon Memorial Hall on the 21st June. The Ancient Order of Druids will give a knife and fork tea at the Victoria Hotel, Barry Dock, on the 21st inst., under the auspices of the Biennial Reception Committee, and visit to Barry of the officers and delegates of the Conference. Major- General Lee has kindly consented to preside, and will lie supported by the Board of Directors with the President of the whole Order. There will be speeches and musical selections. The young man who I saw to my dis- gust on. Cadoxton Common on Monday evening last had better seek a more secluded spot for the adoration of his fair one. Beware yo.g man of deceitful lasses. I was very sorry for that young lover who had arranged to go for a walk with his spouse on Monday even- ing last, but she thought. I suppose, that a change would do her good, and accordingly walked off with another, and the young man after waiting until he was tired at the appointed place of meet- ing, went in search for his fair one, but he had the mifortune of meeting her on Court-road with her new admirer. Whereupon he said, after a few flimsy remarks on both sides, That he would pay her out before the end of the week." I hope though that he will not act'as he said. But, cheer up old fellow, there are splendid fish yet un- caught. One of my nieces is disengaged if you like to call. Smoking amongst the fair sex seems to become quite common at present. A lady was seen parading the streets of Penarth last week with a cigarette in her mouth, while another was seen in one of the streets of Barry Dock on Saturday night last. >< Is it true that all the tenants in Gueret-street have had notice to quit ? v The meetings of the Public Works Committee of the Barry and Cadoxton Local Board will in fature probably be held monthly instead of fortnightly. The tradesmen's sports at Cadoxton on Wednes- day next promises to be a grand success. Everyone who can should patronise them, and as they do not begin until 4.30 shopkeepers and assistants will have a good opportunity. Messrs. Samuel Davies. David Edwards, C. Howe, John Meikle, and John Meredith have been selected to represent the Barry Calvinistic Metho- dist Churches at the monthly meetings of the East Glamorgan Calvinistic Methtdist Connexion. The English Calvinistic Methodist friends at Barry have this week received connexional per- mission to erect a chapel. A Cadoxton gentleman went to Barry Island one day this week—early in the morning-for a plunge in the briny ocean. He selected a sp )t near the cliffs, and, after enjoying a good dip, pr J. ceeeded to dress. But I regret that the strong wind which prevailed took a fancy to one of his under-garments, and wafted it away o'er the sea. Come back again. f Well, this certainly appropriates the biscuit. On Tuesday evening a party in Cadoxton purchased a halfpenny worth of biscuits, but, after taking them home, returned and asked the grocer to change them for another sort. change them for another sort. I am pleasedi to see Police-constable W. Smith (who sustained a painful accident to the leg some time ago by a kick from the chief-constable's horse) has so far recovered that he has returned to duty at Barry Dock. Dr. Sixsmith will preside at a meeting of the Barry District Early Closing League to be held at Rosser's Temperance Hotel, Holton-road, Barry Dock, next Tuesday evening, at 8.30. );: The Metropolitan Bank (of England and Wales), Limited," is the new name by which several local branches will be known. Last week's shipments at Barry Dock amounted to more than 87,000 tons. 'k A steam paoket trader runs with general goods between Cardiff and Barry Dock every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoon. V One of my friends at Barry Dock has a fine tale to tell of Solomon Andrews' funeral cars. There is also a local minister and the Western Mail introduced in it. lam sorry to hear of the impending departure of my friend Sergeant Evans, of Barry. He has been 11 y promoted to Llandaff, where I hope he will find as many friends as he has left behind him at Barry. > Some of the members of the Ambulance Brigade had an open-air drill. I am told by someone who was present that there is plenty of room for im- provement. # One of my friends feels disappointed beoause his name was not included- in the Birthday honours. He remarked to me yesterday that he had thought of honouring Barry by tacking it to his title. On Sunday next the annual Church Parade of the 11th Company 2nd Glamorgan Artillery Volunteers will be held at St. Mary's Church, Holton-road, Barry Dock. It is also stated that the Barry Detachment of the Severn Volunteer Divi- sion Royal Engineers Submarine Miners will also attend the above parade. In the Star's report of the banquet to the Federated Chambers of Trade at Barry Market on the 1st inst., it was stated that Mr." A. W. Morgan sang several solos. A mistake was made in the name. It should have been Mrs. A. W. Morgan whose talent as a singer is so well-known and appreciated in this district. An amusing incident occurred at the monthly meeting of the Welsh Calvinistic Methodist Association for East Glamorganshire held at Barry on Tuesday afternoon last. Four deacons were in course of being appointed for Bethel Chapel, Cadoxton, and the Rev. Dr. Cynddylan Jones, of Cardiff, was deputed to address them. Opening his remarks, Dr. Tones said. Wel, fy nghyfeillion i" "Na, na, Dr. Jones," interposed the Rev. Thomas Rees, of Merthyr, who was presiding temporarily, Seison i nhw 1" The meeting was convulsed with laughter. It is said that there are absent-minded men even in Barry. A gentleman travelling from Cogan to Barry Dock on Tuesday lit a cigatette, and, having drawn a sweet puff or two, he threw the cigarette out at the window, and was proceeding to place the burning match in his_mouth when he awoke with a start to a sense of his dazedness. I The lease of Barry House, belonging to the Romilly Estate, has been bought by Mr. E. R. Moxey, J.P.,and the house has just been occupied by that gentleman's son. -!• It is said that there has been some spooning and cuddling in a certain place at Cadoxton. My in- formant wonders why the parties are so foolish as to allow so many to see them. They should keep their eyes open. •i: Is it true that two mashers and their sweethearts took a drive together on Sunday last from Common Place. Cadoxton, a spot not a thousand miles from Cowbridge ? That was all very well, if it is true, but how was it that at night when they returned and stood by the front door they had so much to say that the servants in the immediate neighbourhood could not go to sleep. In fact it is said that one party had to wait up for them, and that the sequel to the affair was not as pleasant as might be desired. Now then," shouted one young fellow to another one day last week, when I give the signal you haul in." I understand that the 'employes of the well- known firm of house painters and decorators, Messrs. Morgan Bros., of Cadoxton, intend holding their annual outing on Saturday. They will visit Weston-super-Mare and Cheddar. DIN AS POWIS. There was some fine fun on the Common a few days ago, a young gent who resides not a mile from the railway station fell out with his sweet- heart, and not only did she return the bunch of flowers which he had given her, but she tore up a letter she had received from him there and then. But the best of it is the fact that she wants to make it up again, and has been seen patiently waiting near the Common for him on three occasions. I am told that the Flower Show promises to be a great success, and that everything is going along well. I hope such is the case. I know that several parties have substantial sums on their collecting books. The license of the Cross Keys has been trans-. ferred from J. Hadley to Wm. Barnett. A young Dinas Pow is, friend of mine has an amusing story to tell of By the Fountain." He is not the young man who drank the village trough dry the other day. There is a considerable amount of heartburning in the breasts of two 8If our village belles. One in white and pink wonders at the impertinence of the other in blue, and it is said their respective admirers will be drawn into the mess. Our village constable, P.C. Herbert Evans, is a man of renown. He is the man who fitted up the first locomotive which during the Egyptian Cam- paign ran from Ishmalia to the frontier. Although alfitter by trade, it is said he istlwell fitted for his present position. I hear that a certain young man h,s lately in- vested in a new eyeglass, and is now de ermined to fetch 'em." # at PENARTH. I notice that Mr. George Taylor ha'1 applied for I a patent for improvements in apparatus for an 1 connected with the loading and discharging of vessels and transfer of railway wagons, coal and other substances, from one place or level to another. SC :J: The licence of the Penarth Railway Hotel has been transferred from Ellen Bond to her son, Walter John Bond. a There is a young lady in a drapery establishment at Penarth who visited Cogan on Sunday after- noon, expecting to meet a certain person. The expected one was late in putting in an appear- ance, and when he did come he was told by a friend that his fair one had gone off with another. There is a beach inspector at Penarth, who claims to be an old pal of the Prince of Wales. 11 He was a regular card, His Royal Highness was we had many a lark together." » 7 How Ion? have you been in the force, con- stable ?" inquired Mr. T. H. Belcher, the genial" solicitor at Penarth, during the hearing of an assault case on Monday. I was born a police- man, sir," was the reply. No, no, my good friend there are a few born lawyers, but there are no born policemen proudly rejoined the popular solicitor. COGAN. Said the magistrates at Penarth Police-court on Monday to a Cogan lady, You can use words as as hard as you like you know hard words break no bones, but you must not strike. You will pay 2s. 6d." Kinds words can never die. BONVILSTONE. A large company of ladies and gentlemen from Bonvilstone and district had a splendid outing on Wednesday to Barry Island. They were headed by the worthy host of the Old Post Inn, Mr. Lemuel Roberts. )!: WENVOE. I am informed that there have been some grand doings at Wenvoe. Yes, it is a fact that not a Star could be ob- tained after Thursday evening.

A man named Philip Hopkins, a journeyman shoemaker, living at Penarth,' was on Friday brought up in custody and charged before Mr. John Duncan, at the occasional court (Mr. Morris's offices, St. Mary-street, Cardiff). with begging.— Evidence was given that on the previous afternoon the prisoner was seen to stop several females and ask them for something, and also to go into several shops and ask for pence. Several complaints had also been made to the police by different ladies that he had been in the habit of going into people's houses, walking right into the passage, and de- manding a penny. He had been drinking heavily for several days.—The prisoner admitted his offence, and appealed to be given another chance. promising amendment.-He was ultimately dis- charged with a caution. SHE RAN TO WELCOME HER FATHER. On Friday at 1.30 p.m. a child aged 4 years, daughter of Mr. Wilson, pilot, 36, Dock-road, whilst running across the street to see her father, who was piloting into Penarth Dock the new passenger ship, The Goth, just launched from Belfast, was run over by a cart, laden with timber, the driver being David. Williams, 8, Fern-street, Canton. Dr. Rees, who was at once summoned, found the child suffering from serious internal injuries. VOLUNTEER CHURCH PARADE. On Sunday morning, at 10.30, the various bat- teries of the 2nd Glamorgan Artillery Volunteers mustered 378 strong at the Drill-hall for Church parade. Col. Ingram was in command, and the other officers present were Captain and Adjutant Eyre, R.A., Major Thomas. Captains Coleman, Dalziel, Handcock, Brain, and Cook Lieutenants K. N.
