MRS. GRUNDY'S JOTTINGS Spring cleaning has commenced in the district. ■* An early dish. A Barry man has picked five or eix pounds of nice mushrooms this year. » Somebody has discovered that a man's heart is cheaper than a woman's. And a sheep's heart is cheaper than either. » Mr W. B. Gibbs, one of the new batch of county magistrates, sat for the first time at Penarth Police Court last Monday. The annual scripture examination was con- ducted in the Board Schools of the Barry district on Saturday, when there were good attendances and most creditable results were obtained. II: May Day is a red-letter day on the Barry Railway, for this is the day upon which the uniform staff are supplied with new livery. Very satisfactory. The total shipments at Barry Dock last week amounted to the handsome total of 114,734 tons 17 cwts. Mr John Morris, the venerable clerk of the Dinas Powis Highway Board, was present at the ,monthly meeting at Barry Dock last Wednesday. T Up to the end of April an increase of 128,830 'tons was shown in the coal and coke shipments at Barry Dock as compared with the corresponding ^period of last year. A noble deed. The working-men of the Barry District, under the auspices of the Barry Dock R.A.O.B. Dramatic Society, have handed over to Major-General Leo, J.P., the sum of L12 15s "being the gross proceeds cf the recent entertain- ment in aid of the funds of the local Nursing Association.

Miss G. Edwards, of Cardiff, one of the members of the Royal Welsh Ladies Choir, was present at -the Welsh Congregational Chapel, Barry Dock, 'last Sunday, and in the evening, at the invitation •«f the deacons, sang a solo, which was much 'enjoyed by those present. During her stay in 'the district, Mis3 Edwards was the guest of Mr jGeorge Parry, of Merthyr-street, Barry Dock. Police-constable David Roberts, a most efficient •young officer, who has been stationed in the Barry jDock and Cadoxton district for about six years, lias been promoted to the rank of merit class, and ttransferred to Ystrad, Rhondda. His place at 4Cadoxton has been taken by P.C. Thomas Thor- e,burn. ¥ The ball-room at the Artillery Volunteer dance aftr Cadoxton, last Friday night, was the scene of an amusing incident. One of the non-commissioned -officers so thoroughly enjoyed himself that after the ball" he sat down in the corner of one of the ante-rooms, and having nodded nods of calm repose at two or three friends who were leaving he suddenly lost himself in deep sleep. When he .awoke, about ten o'clock the following morning, ,he was alone in his glory," and his boots and -patrol jacket having been locked up, the" non- con." was obliged to make his way homewards in .the best manner possible.

Mr Keir Hardie, M.P., and Mr J. H.

Mr Inspector Rutter was described amongst the evidence at the Penarth Court last Monday as Superintendent Rutter, and the inspector at once sprang an inch in ,stature and importance. The population of XJ,6S5 in the Barry district represents 5.0 persons per acre of the urban sani- tary area. III Mr J. H. Wilson, M.P., has made a proposal to the Shipping Federation, suggesting a. minimum of living wage" for sailors. In this the hon. member has acted as the mouthpiece of the Sailors' and Firemen's Union. We are growing on all sides, there can be no doubt. Why, bless your heart, Barry boasts of a birthrate last year of 45'1 per thousand living, nearly 15 per thousand in excess of the birth-rate for England and Wales. The death of my good friend, the Rev William Seward, of Cardiff, last week, reminds me that the Barry district owes him a debt of gratitude as one of its first science teachers. Even Barry people are given in marriage," the rate under this head last year being 5-57 per 1,000. Logically, this means that five persons and the fifty-seventh part of one joined the majority in 1893; and I happen to know who that fifty- seventh part of a man was A sugared plum for the ratepayers. The Barry and Cadoxton Local Board Finance Committee have adopted a general district rate of eighteen- pence in the £ for the year ending September, 1895. How we live. Last year, 3,223 animals were killed at the public slaughter house at Cadoxton. Of these 2,240 were sheep, 495 beasts, 367 pigs, and 121 calves. sic What shall we do with our boys and girls ? There were 522 births in excess of deaths at Barry last year. t In 1889, there were 983 houses occupied in the Barry district; in 1890, 1,720 houses; in 1891, 2,007 in 1892, 2,626 and in 1893, 2,890 and there are nearly a hundred houses more in course of drection.

I am very sorry to learn that Mr G. H. Taylor, the popular stationmaster at Barry Dock, is on the sick list. Many friends join me in wishing him a speedy recovery. At an entertainment held at Moulton last week, one of the young ladies present put a farthing's worth of needles in the collection. Someone naughtily suggested she gave them as the widow's mite—and a single young lady, too. óI Observer" of the Errning Express refers to a Barry Dock News reporter in the following flattering terms :—" It is not often that pressmen drop on such windfalls as a journalist at Barry. This day week this fortunate individual picked up a bundle of Bank of England notes under the railway subway near Barry Dock Station. The young journalist was so unaccustomed to such an ex- perience that he at once came back to the office, and innocently inquired what he was to do with the "flimsies," and suggestions towards solving the problem were notlong in coming either The fowls of the air are evidently believers in the Free Church principle. In a certain parish church not far from Barry, it is not at all unusual to see birds fluttering about through the interior, and recently one of the feathered tribe-a barn- door fowl, not so high-flown as the rest—actually laid an egg in the pulpit. ¥ The Penarth magistrates again tried to solve a very difficult problem last Monday. Were they drunk ?" asked Mr Lewellen Wood of a witness in the Webber case. I don't know, Sir," was the reply; "they had had a drop, but I am not a judge of what it is to be drunk." Had they too much drink," ? continued Mr Wood, when Inspector Rutter settled the question by saying they behaved like mad ¥ Analysis shows, says the Western Mail, that Penarth water is four times as hard as Cardiff water. This means four times as much soap for the Penartbites, but we believe that the latter's chief complaint is that the water does not contain a fair proportion of alcohol. The crinoline has come. A specimen is being shown in a Regent-street shop in London. It is made of cream-coloured alpaca in petticoat style, with three little frills near the waist, and at the hem is a steel. What the Barry Spinsters' Society will do in the matter I am anxiously waiting to hear. ¥ How is it that some of the dress suits here to-night hang so baggily over the wearers ?" asked a gentleman of his next door neighbour at a certain entertainment at Barry this week. Alas! master, for they are borrowed promptly replied the latter, and for some time the first-named was lost in a maze of thought. I A man at Penarth has a fox terrier, and the fox terrier has pups.

A PATHETIC INCIDENT AT BARRY…
A PATHETIC INCIDENT AT BARRY DOCK. A circumstance of a very pathetic nature occurred at Barry Dock a few days ago. Last week a lady named Miss Shorter, sister to Dr Shorter, of Hastings, a gentleman who holds a number of important public appointments, and occupies a prominent position in that town, came to Barry Dock in order to ship an adopted son, named Walker, as apprentice on board one of th3 out- going ships. The lad left the port on Tues- day, and the ship, proceeding down Channel, encountered severe weather, and was obliged, therefore, to put back to Barry Roads for shelter. In the meantime, Miss Shorter was taken suddenly ill, and died, being buried on Friday morning at Merthyr Dovan Cemetery, the Rev E. Morris, rector of Cadoxton, officiating. The ship on board of which was young Walker still lay in Barry Roads, but he knew nothing of the death of his adopted mother, and the sad intelligence has yet to be broken to the friendless lad. The funeral arrangements were carried out by Messrs James Jones and Co., Holton-road.

[ALLEGED ! ENCROACHMENT UPON…
ALLEGED ENCROACHMENT UPON DINAS POWIS COMMON. EXTRAORDINARY ACTION OF THE LORD OF THE MANOR. THE COMMONERS BELIEVE THEIR RIGHTS ARE INTERFERED WITH. A considerable amount of excitement is just now disturbing the habitual peacefulness of the public mind at Dinas Powis. The beautiful Common at that place is a stretch of land held on the ancient manorial principle, the present owners being Major-General H. H. Lee, J.P., of The Mount, and Mrs Jenner, of Wenvoe Castle, as lord and lady of the manor respectively, with a number of the old inhabitants of Dinas Powis as holders of common rights therein. In order, however, to develope his adjoining property for building purposes, General Lee has just made a road over the common in question without, it is alleged, having obtained the consent of the commoners and the representa- tives of the Wenvoe Castle estate to do so. This action on the part of the esteemed General has aroused a good deal of indignation among the villagers, and it is understood that, in addition to legal process already resolved upon by the Wenvoe Castle Estate authorities, the Commoners will take active steps to preserve their ancestral rights. The mischief, however, has already been done, for an 18ft. road has been formed, and the Common, one of the most lovely spots in the district, has been considerably cut up and disfigured in oonsequence.
A BARRY MYSTERY!
A BARRY MYSTERY! THE BODY OF A BABY FOUND IN WHITMORE BAY. WHERE IS THE HEARTLESS MOTHER? On Friday afternoon last, Mr Henry Woolston, of 17, Travis-street, Barry Dock, gave information to Police-sergeant David Weeks, of Barry, of the discovery, in Whitmore Bay, Barry Island, of the dead body of a male child, newly-born. Sergeant Weeks at once went to Whitmore Bay, and con- veyed the body, which was decomposed, to the police-station. The deceased was covered with a baby's white chemise, a coloured handkerchief, and a piece of jean, and a stone had been placed on the stomach, evidently to sink the body. Later in the evening Dr Kelly made a post-mortem exami- nation, and found the child had had a separate existence. THE INQUEST. On Saturday morning, at Barry Police-station, Mr E. B. Reece, Cardiff, held an inquest on the body. Evidence as to the finding of the body was given, and Dr Kelly, who had made the post- mortem examination, said he believed the body had been in the water from three to four weeks. It was much decomposed externally, and he found no marks of violence, and even if there were any he could not see them owing to the advanced state of decomposition of the body. In his opinion the deceased had breathed freely after birth, but he could not give the cause of death. The deceased had been fully nourished, and was well developed. -An open verdict of Found dead was returned. NO CLUE UP TO THE PRESENT. Up to the present, the police have not been able to discover the mother of the child whose body was found on the beach at Whitmore Bay on Friday afternoon last. There is an impression that the child might have been brought from Cardiff or elsewhere and thrown over the rocks at Barry Island, or it might have drifted up or down along the coast to where it was found.
PROPOSED ABOLITION OF THE…
PROPOSED ABOLITION OF THE PENARTH TOLL-GATE. A movement has been initiated for the removal of the toll-gate on the Penarth-road between Car- diff and Penarth, and the abolition of the tolls. The road and bridge were originally constructed at the join expence ot the Marquess of Bute and Lord Windsor, through whose property the road passes, and an Act of Parliament was obtained to enable them to levy tolls on all vehicles using the thorough fare in aid of its maintenance and repair. When Mr Solomon Andrews first commenced to run omnibuses to Penarth and Cadoxton that gentleman made arrangements with the representatives of the Marquess of Bute and Lord Winsor to rent the gate and keep the road in repair. This state of things has now been in force for some years, and the same tolls are now exacted as when the road was first constructed. The traffic, however, has enormously increased, and it is felt that the road and bridge should be taken over by the local authorities and the tolls abolished. This is considered to be all the more desirable since the old highway toll-gates have become obsolete. MR. SOLOMON ANDREWS' PEELING ON THE MATTER. Mr Solomon Andrews declares that if a move- ment were initiated he would beino obstacle in the way. He was simply the tenant, and no man in South Wales would be better pleased to see the gate removed than he would. It was simply a matter of negotiation between the Cardiff and Glamorgan County Councils, the Penarth Local Board, the Marquess of Bute, and Lord Windsor. CARDIFF CORPORATION RECOMMENDED TO PURCHASE. A special meeting of the Cardiff Cabs Committee was held on Tuesday at the Town-hall.—Mr Good brought forward the following recommendation That the attention of the council be called to the tolls imposed upon omnibuses and other vehicles plying for hire or using Penarth-rord, and as the same imposes a heavy burden upon the proprietors, in consequence of which some;have been compelled to cease running on the route, the council be respectfully requestsd to take the whole matter into their consideratien with a view II to the abolition of the toll by the roads and bridges being taken over by the corporation jointly with the Glamorgan County County, and vested in the borough authorities. —The Chairman suggested, and there was a con- sensus of opinion in favor of the suggestion, that the public works committee was the best authority through which to make the recommendation to the council, the cabs committee stonsrly em- phasising the desirability of adopting it.—Mr Good concurred, and proposed a resolution accordingly, which was seconded by Mr John Woo3, and carried unanimously.
THE CARPENTERS' DISPUTE AT…
THE CARPENTERS' DISPUTE AT BARRY. THE MEN AND THE SO-CALLED MASTEIt BUILDERS' ASSOCIATION. VICTORY FOR THE MEN ON THE WAGES QUESTION. A well-attended mass meeting of carpenters and joiners, society and non-society men, of the Barry district, was held on Saturday evening last at the Victoria Hotel, Barry Dock, for the purpose of discussing the situation between employers and employed in the trade on the wages and other questions, of which six months' notice had been given under the provisions of the code of working rules. So large was the amount of interest felt in the procedings that scarcely a man belonging to the trade in the district was absent. The chair was occupied by Mr Tunley, of Burton-on-Trent, one of the organisers of the Amalgamated Society of Carpenters and Joiners, and it was announced that the six months' notice given to the employers by the members of the two local societies for an advance in waees to 8-Jd. per hour, together with the abolition of piecework and the regulation of the employment of improvers, would expire on Monday evening, and-unless the concessions asked for were granted in the meantime, that the men be called out on strike on Tuesdav morning. Mr Fred. Walls, secretary to the United Trades' Com- mittee, reported that he waited upon the employers individually on Friday, and found the majority were in favour of conceding the requests of the men so far as wages were concerned, while some still had the matter under consideration, but one or two others had positively refused. Unless, however, there was unanimity on the part of the emplovers in granting the wage advance, the men would strike. It was also announced, amid applause, that one of the largest employers, Messrs Roberts and Co., timber merchants, Barry Dock, had expressed their willingness to grant the whole of the demands of the men, and considered them reasonable. The following resolutions were after- wards passed with acclamation That in the opinion of this meeting the present United Trades Committee is deserving of our sincere confidence, and we have every belief in their integrity and earnestness in doing everything in their power to bring our dispute to a close. That in the opinion of this meeting, we, in our future negociations with the employers, should do so individually, and not in their capacity as an association. The meeting closed with an enthusiastic vote of thanks to Mr Tunley for presiding. ATTITUDE OF THE MASONS AND PLASTERERS. It was understood that in the event of the carpenters and joiners coming out on strike the masons and plasterers of the district would lend them all the support in their power, as it was felt the building trades at Barry should enjoy the same advantages as are in force among those at Cardiff. ANOTHER MEETING OF THE MEN. Another meeting of carpenters and joiners was held on Monday evening at the Victoria Hotel, when it was announced that most of the master builders affected had granted the men's demands for an increase of wages to 8 £ d per hour, but not 2 in connection with the abolition of piecework and the minimisation of the employment of improvers. One firm, however, Messrs Jones Bros., Holton- road, Barry Dock, refused to grant either con- cession, and in this case the men decided to come out on strike on Tuesday morning. Messrs Jones Bros. contended that masons should receive half- penny per hour more than carpenters, and they only paid their masons 8¡d. The code of working rules between the carpenters and their employers, owing to the present action of the latter, now be- come obsolete, and the men are at liberty to strike at any time on the remaining points in dispute. A further meeting of the men wfll "be held to-mor- row (Saturday) evening, and, it is understood, the masters will also hold a conference this evening (Friday). ACTION OF THE MEN ON MAY 1. On Tuesday morning, Messrs Jones Bros. re- fused to grant the proposed increase, and the carpenters in their employ were called out on strike, but they remained out only a short time, when the firm gave in, and conceded the half- penny asked for. During the day, however. Mr II. J. Money, secretary of the so-called Master Builders' Association," was found to be unwilling to grant the advance, and the three men in his employ were also asked to come out, which they readily did, but not before Mr Money had threatened to take pro- ceedings against Mr Walls for intimidation. THE PRESENT POSITION OF AFFAIRS. So far the men have been successful in their de- mands, but decisions have yet to be come to with the employers on the piecework and improver questions, although most of the employers are willing to concede. THE MASONS ARE GOING TO AGITATE FOR AN ADVANCE. The stonemasons of the Barry district have, it is understood, decided to make application forthwith for an advance in wages to nine-pence per hour.

THE SHIPPING FEDERATION AND FREE LABOUR. A BARRY OFFICIAL'S OPINION OF THE MATTER. In connection with the rumours which have been circulated during the past week or two as to an intended attack by the Shipping Federation upon all the trades unionists connected with the shipping industries, by insisting upon the employ- ment of none but "free labour," a Barry Dock Neics reporter has this week had a conversation with Mr J. Harrison, the resident secretary of the National Seamen's Union at Barry Dock, who said the officials of his Union felt no alarm what- ever at the contemplated opposition of the Federation in fact," he declared, the move- ment will strengthen our ranks very considerably, for as soon as the experiment has been tried, the sailors will discover their error, and the reaction I will be one which will do more good to trades unionism than anything the Federation has yet I attempted." The Sailors' Union has been the means of largely promoting the social advance- ment and general well-being of the seafaring community, and they have long been convinced as to who their true friends are. A branch of the Shipping Federation has just been re-opened at Barry Dock.
FINE STEAMERS AT BARRY
FINE STEAMERS AT BARRY DOCK. The fine new steamer Alberta, with 8,000 tons of coal, left Barry Dock on Sunday last for Bombay, The large stermer, Albana, of Liverpool, is alsc shipping a similar cargo at Barry Dock for thE West Indies. The masters in each instance describe the docking facilities at Barry as excellent and expeditious. The Alberta was loaded with coal from the Albion and Nixon Navigatior Collieries, and the Albana with coal from Davie L and Sons' Collieries. 1
LOCAL FOOTBALL. BENEFIT FOOTBALL MATCH AT CAD- OXTON-BARRY. A match between Mr R. Ashton's team and Mr J. H. Woodward's team, in aid of the funds of the Barry and Cadoxton Nursing Association, was played on Wednesday afternoon last, at the Witchill athletic grounds, Cadoxton, the following being the players: -J. Woodward' Team.—Goal, J. Taylor; back, G. Williams, and J. Barratt; half-back, E. Griffiths, T. Callaghan, and E. Day forward right, J. Jenkins and J. Taylor centre, D. Thursby left, W. Blackwell and W. JOlles.-R..lslttulI'" Team.—Goal. J. Kine; back, D. Evans, and W. McCormick: half-back, F. Clements, C. Brown, and E. Drew forward right, R ♦ Ashton and F. Hood; centre, J. Woodfield; left, J. Sheldon and H. Hoddmott. Woodwara's team kicked off against a strong wind, and a downpour of min, which lasted throughout the game, and after awhile J. Jenkins got the ball and dribbled well up the field. Ashton's team now pressed, and not long afterwards Joe Woodfield registered a goal for them. Piav of an even character followed for some time, but Blackwell, getting away, made a good run, and scored for Woodward's team. Soon after the kick off, Sheldon secured the leather, and made a splendid run, his shot for goal, however, fail- ing. Both teams now warmed to their work, and Drew was allowed a free kick for a foul near the posts which proved futile. Jenkins and Drew immediately afterwards dribbled the ball up the whole length of the field, -.vhich resulted in a corner, the kick being cleverly stopped by Barratt. Ashton registered a. goal before half-time, the score then standing even, both sidfis having obtained two goals each. Soon after the re-start, Jenkins kicked through for Wood- ward's team from a difficult position. Some good passing on both sides was witnessed, but Jenkins managed to get away, and again did the needful. The same player having registered another goal, W. Jones scored for Woodward's team. At the call of time the score stood:—Woodward's team, six goals; Ashton's team, two goals. Mr B. A. Wiilett acted as referee. The Barry Dock Brass Band was in attend- ance, and rendered selections of music during the game.
