BY THE WAY. -+- Mr. Labouchere has a fist of which eveu ou own Merthyr ealigraphists are a bit jealous. H writes his name to look like "Wahusey." "Yniosodiad mawr ar Deyrnas y Gelyu" is tte way in which the Wesleyans of A berdare announce their forthcoming revival meetings. A chunk of wisdom with the fringe sarcastic:" Tiiat is how the Western Mo it speaks of one of our last week's leaderettes. N\ e the wisdom, but not the sarcasm. Good Old Leaning Tower There is an average attendance of 109 per cent, at the Caerphilly Infant School. How do you like that bit of cheese, frieud Snap-shuts? Dr. Skeat say-; the Cam in Cambridge has no connection with tlie Welsh word cam," meanirg "crooked." Where is Morieti ? Will he not. philo- losrieally speaking, slay Dr. Skeat as he slew Professor Morris Jones ? The Cardiff people, having failed to get the Prince of Wales to open their exhibition, now intend approaching either Dr. Jim or Oom Paul. They are also going to ask the new poet laureate to write an ode in honour of the event. Westminster "sti!l acts as the candid friend of the Government. In his last budget of notes he says —The present Government has, I regret to say, shown a good deal of stiffness in in dealings with the demands made by Wales for increased educational aid, and Sif William Harcourt 011 Friday night made the most of the contrast between their niggardliness and his own free-handed policy when he was at the Exchequer." It was a great mistake, from the Tory point of view, not to find a place in the administra- tion for the member for Cardiff. This is from the Evening Express diary for Satur- day, under the heading "Ten Years Ago" Death of Mr. Rees Lewis, printer, Merthyr, aged 82. He and-Mr. Joseph Edwards, sculptor, were fellow mem- l>ers of the first eisteddfod ever held in Merthyr, and one which Ap lolo" was associated. This eistedd- fod was known as the Cymmrodori )n. There had been some minor festivals before, but of a convivial character."—Mr. Rees Lewis, we may add, was the proprietor and editor of the Fclltcn, and father of Mr. .J,.P. Lewis, whe still carries on the printing and stationery business. In the House of Commons on Tuesday, Sir M. White Ridley (Home Secretary), replying to Mr. David A. Thomas (R., Merthyr Tydfil), said any application that reached him on the subject of giving the title of Lord Mayor to the chief magistrate of Cardiff (the title not being employed by any corporate town in the Principality) would, he need not say. receive his careful consideration, but the difficulty cf distinguishing between the comparative claims of Cardiff and other towns of equal or even greater importance would, he though, prima facie, bo an objection to acceding to the request.
