"Dr. Vaughan much regrets that his present state of health (though wonderfully improved) forbids his accepting the kind invitation with which he has been favoured to the annual ban- quet of the Press Benefit Society on Saturday, the 4th of May. He trusts it will be as suc- cessful a gathering as the one which he never forgets."
OARSMEN, NOTE. A WILTSHIRE MAN'S NEW INVEN- TION FOR ROWING. It has always been recognised as a disadvan- tage that in rowing a boat the oarsmen does not face the direction in which the boat is moving, and several appliances have been in- vented to remedy this acknowledged defect. None of these have been generally adopted, but it is claimed for a new invention patented by Mr. E. Pink, of Stanton Saint Bernard, near Pewsey, Wilts, that it overcomes all the objections to preceding inventions designed for the same purpose. Some photographs have been published showing the working of the new rowing apparatus. 0 No. 1 shows the handles of the jointed sculls pushed forward, the blades also going forward and just taking the water; No. 2 shows the hatidJes brought backwards, just as in the ordinary way of row- ing, and the blades also brought back'through thj water, and just leaving the water for another stroke forward, by which operation the boat is propelled forward and the rower faces the point to be reached; No 3 shows the handle and blade collapsed, and lying along the gunwale of the boat. Mr. Pink states that with the pair of oars shown on the photos he has at different times rowed 70 or 80 miles altogether, and without the slightest hitch or mishap whatever. The exertion and move- ments of the body required are just the same a-s in the present style of rowing, but the pleasure of the rower is much enhanced from the factt of beinig able to see where he is row- ing to, and requires no one to steer the boat, and the patentee claims that by the use of his ■apparatus (especially upon narrow rivers and lakes in parks where there may be many boats rowing about together) the danger of collision is minimised, if not altogether avoided.

THE MISSING GIRL. SARAH HIGGS HAS RETURNED TO HER HOME. Our representative, on calling late on Mon- day evening at No. 61, Donald-street, was in- formed by Mr. Higgs that his daughter, Sarah Ann Higgs, who had not been seen by her ( relatives sines Saturday evening, had returned heme. It appears that the girl, who, it m ill 1 be remembered, wrote a letter to her uncle, in 1 vobich the stated thait she contemplated suicide, had, when sent on an errand by her father on Saturday evening, delayed her retum Juntil t it was so late that she feared to face her parents' anger, which she knew she would meet, as her mother had but a few days previously severely ] reprimanded her for the habit of staying out late,. to which she was muoh addicted. It was while in 'the state of indecision arising from 'this fear that the idea entered ¡ hear head that she, instead of returning home, would go and lodge with a Mi's. Barber, of 38, 'Sbpliia-stfee^, whose advertisement of rooms to let she had read in the daily papers. To avoid suspicion, she represented herself to Mrs. Barber as having oome to Cardiff to take up an engagement in a shop in the town. She: stayed at No. 38 during Sunday, but on Monday she was met by her mother in Newport-road, with whom she returned home, where she expressed to her parents her sincere regret for what she had done, and more especially for the letter she had written to her uncle. The state- ments she therein made as to the treatment she had received at the hands of her mother she now admits to be entirely false; in fact, she re- gretted the letter five minutes after she had posted it. Mr. and Mrs Higgs desire to express their gratitude to all their friends and relations. who one and all did whatever they could to find the whereabouts of the missing child, and to Mrs. Barber, who on reading the description of Miss Higgs at once went to Donald-street to give the information that a girl answering to the description was lodging at her house. When she arrived, however. it was only to be aole to identify the prodiga-l as her erstwhile boarder.
TAFF VALE WORKMEN. THEIR GRIEVANCES AGAINST THE DIRECTORS. A fortnight since the employes of the Taff Vale Railway Company, in mass meeting assembled at Cardiff. protested against an alleged violation on the part of the manage- ment of the agreement of 1890, guaranteeing payment at the rate of 60 hours per week, unless there is some serious interruption at the collieries. The men protested against the notice that had been posted that the trainmen's working agreement would be suspended indefi- nitely, on the ground of unusual interruption at the collieries. The notice, however, was given effect to in Good Friday week. as the men say, in violation of the clause in the 1890 agreement, which states that they shall be *t, It paid for Easter, Whitsuntide, and Christmas holidays, and they further affirm that the col- lieries worked as they always have during holiday sea-sons, and that there was no justifica- tion for the step the management thought fit to take. The delegates of the men were in- structed bv resolution of the mass meeting to obtain 'enlightenment" from the manage- ment. and report to another mass meeting on Sunday, May 5. The delegates have not waited upon the management, neither have the latter replied to the men's resolutions. Nothing has been done yet, nor could have been very well. inasmuch as there has been no meeting • of the board until to-day (Tuesday). During Easter week, however, the wages were paid | for the full 60 hours, and this seems to indicate that the men will succeed in their a<gitation. Another mass meeting will take place, as convened, on Sunday next to further disoues the situation. --?-
ALLOCATION OF TITHES. MR. D. A. THOMAS PLEASED WITH I MERTHYR GUARDIANS. I Mr. D. A. Thomas, M.P., whilst declining to add anything to what he has said already on the I subject of the allocation of tithes, was evidently very gratified at the result of the division at the Merthyr Board of Guardians on Saturday, when by a majority of 22 to four it was decided not to petition Parliament in favour of the method of allocation proposed in the Welsh Bill.

HORRIBLE AFFAIR. A M<AN BURNT TO DEATH ON THE ROADSIDE. On Monday the deputy-coroner (Mr. Hutchin- son) held an inquest afc the Temple Bar Inn, Ewias Harold, Pontrilas, Newport, touching the )f Thomas Smith, an inmate of the Dore Union Workhouse. Deceased rhad absconded from the workhouse on the 16th of April, and was •etuming to the workhouse on the 26th of April, when deceased was found by a. baker, named Prosiser, to be all on fire on a 'heap of stones on >he roadside, within 200 raj-ds of The Trap House, Ewias Harold. Prosser, as soon as he iiscovered what was the matter, immediately dis- mounted from his cart, and by means of rugs succeeded in putting out the flames, when de- seaeed was found to be quite dead. Deceased was burnt in a fearful manner, the sight being a terribly ghastly one, uid it was only by means of his dothes that reoognition was possible.—The jury, 3f which. Mr. Berber* Jooe«t, Harold Villa^-was foreman, returned a verdict to the effect that deceased met. with his death as the result of being burnt to death, caused by a pipe after smoking, which ignited the wearing apparel and set it in flames.
A CASE FROM ROTTERDAM. SIGNING ON SEAMEN ON A CAR- DIFF SHIP. Mr. J. Havelock Wilson on Monday night put on the notice papers of the House of Com- mons the following question:—"To ask the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he is aware that the British steamship Ethel Radcliffe signed on a crew of foreign sailors and firemen before her British Majesty's Consul at the port of Rotterdam on April 25, when the said sailors and firemen were c-bargetl three guelders each by the shipping master before they could get their advance notes; and if he was aware tliat her Majesty's Consul used his office for the purpose of procuring these men for 23 per month for able seamen and £ 3 5s. per month for firemen; and whether lie is aware that in consequence of the low wageis paid the polioe were called in to the consular oifioes to prevent a disturbance; and, further, to ask if the Und<«r-Secreta»ry for Foreign Affairs does not think it desirable that instructions should be given to consuls in the ports of Antwerp and Rotterdam and Hamburg to discontinue trans- acting business in shipping interests, either directly or indirectly, and what steps he will take to have the evidence of the crew of the Ethel Radcliffe taken before the superintendent of the Board of Trade, as the vessel now lies in the port of London." In reference to this last passage, Mr. Wilson informed our London representative that on the last oooasion on which he brought forward a similar question the Under-Secretary for Foreign Affairs said that if lie could bring any particular ease under his notice where men had been charged these shipping fees he would make inquiries about it. On Monday morning, whilst at the port of London, Mr. Wilson came aoropss the case which he has outlined in his question, and lie thinks it a favourable oppor- tunity to get the crew examined as to the cir- cumstances under which they were shipped, and alf i < to the fees they were charged 'j h Ethel Radcliffe is a Cardiff vessel, owned by iviessrs. Evan Thomas, Radcliffe, and CoM Dock Chambers. -?-
A RHYL SENSATION. A LUNATIC LADY THROWS HER- SELF FROM THE PIER. On Monday afternoon a private inmate of Denbigh Lunatic Asylum, named Miss Murray, aged 52, proceeded to Rhyl, in charge of an attendant, for an outing. Both ladies went on to the pier and sat down. In a few minutes, and without the slightest warning, Miss Murray ran across the pier and jumped off the railings into the water. The atten- dant gave the alarm, but as ,the tide was in the unfortunate lady was drowned. Deceased came from London.
RAILWAY FATALITY. A SHUNTER KILLED ON THE CAMBRIAN RAILWAY. A shocking accident occurred at Station, on the Cambrian Railway, on Monday morning. A shunter named Dyson, whilst engaged at his work. accidently fell in front of a truck of a goods train and was run over. He was terribly mutilated, his body being almost out in two He died a few minutes afterwards.
"BROADER BRITAIN," A very queer and impenetrable-looking oor- ner is the Hill Fort at Mudghirri, of which a photograph is to be found in Part XI. of "Broader Britain."

The fight- ing days of Mysore are connected with the august name of Arthur Wellesley. -IiS? i

The amounts that have been paid tofamoui sopranos, tenors, contraltos, and bassos that have appeared from time 'to time above the musical horizon sound well-nigh fabulous, and are not a little interesting to consider. To go back to the early days of the last century, to the early days of the Italian opera, in this country, Mrs. Catherine Tofts, its first lady interpreter in England, claimed high salaries at the theatre in Lincoln's Inn Fields. She drew considerably over L600 for a season, and at one time she was singing for JB20 a night— high terms in 1708. At the same theatre. 26 years later, the great singer. Farinelli, during the tlwee years he spent in London, though hie salary was bub d31,500 a season, earned at least J35,000 yearly; for at but one of his numerous appearanoes at Court, the Prince of Wales gave him a fine wrought-gold snuff box. richly set with diamonds and rubies, in which was en- closed a pair of diamond knee buckles, as also a purse of 100 guineas. Later in life he ac- cepted an engagement at the Court of Spain at a salary of 50.000f. (22,000) per annum. Two years after Farinelli left London the other great singer of the time, Caffarelli, appeared at the King's Theatre, but did not fulfill the expectations he had rawed, though at Venice lie received L3,500 and a benefit of JB555 for a season of three months— higher terms than had previously been paid. to any singer. In 1768 Gabrielli, one of the most beautiful of women and magnificent of sopranos, de- manded 5,068 ducats salary from Catherine II. of Russia. The Empress objected that it was larger than the pay of a Fiekl Marshal. "Then let your Field Marshals sing for you," re- torted Gabrielli, as Caffarelli had replied before, under like circumstances. That phenomenal soprano, Agujari. was in r 1775 paid j6100 a night for two s-ongs at the London Pantheon concerts—an immense salary in those days. About 30 years later CaLtalauiwa-a was receiving some JB5,000 for the season in Por- tugal, and in 1806 she came to London for a promise of JB2,000 for the season from Septem- ber 15 to August, 1807, with a further sum of £ 1,000 to defray the cost of her journey to London and one benefit night free of expense. As a ffact, however, she drew from the King's Theatre in the Haymarket £ 5,000, in- cluding benefits; and her total profits in 1807, with concerts and provincial tours, were £ 16,300. She once received C200 for singing "God Save the King" and "Rule. Britannia," and for her services at one festival she was paid £ 2,000. Her charities, hoAvevef, were innumerable, and it is estimated that she' l earned at least £ 80,000 at concerts for such j purposes alone. As au instance of heir reckless extravagance, it is stated that the oaet of beer 'j for her servants for a single year amounted to JB105. J Malibran was engaged by Alfred Bunn for 1. nineteen nights, at £ 123 per night, payable ÏII ) advance. Singing in Drury-lane in E&4^|| 91 opera in 1833, she received 80,000 franes ( £ 3,200) for forty representations, with two ba efits, which produced not less than 50,000 francs ( £ 2,000). Two yeaas later, at the opera. in London, she drew £ 2,173 for twenty-four performances. Such sums werfe paid to her at the English provincial festivals as had iever before been heard of, and at La Scala. she received nearly E18,000 for 185 performances. In 1838 Mario was offered L60 a month for' his first appearance, though this was, of course, largely the result of his romantao history. Alboni's salary at Covent Gardep in 1847 was raised from PSoo to B2,000 the day after her first appearance, singing, as slio was, against Jenny Lind at the opposition house. Sout.e.g was paid JB6,000 for a season of six months at Her Majesty's Theatre in 1849. Rubini, who began his career at fifteen year* of age by singing, for five francs, an air in ft new drama by Lambetti, made immense sums later in life, realising £2,000 at one concert at St. Petersburg. Unlike Mario and Mara, who both died in comparative poverty, Rubini saved large sums, and left behind him one of the largest fortunes ever amassed on the operatic Sttlenny Lind was naturally paid eportnous sums in the course of her triumphant career. During a tour of two years through the States, commenced jo 1850, she made £ 20,000, gaining a husband as well. These pecuniary traditions are adequately preserved by at least two present-day singers, to whom a thousand or two for a concert is an ordinary sum—Mme. Patti and Mme. Albani. It is current knowledge that the usual terms of the former are JB800 per oonoert in London and L400 in the provinces. Mow. Patti lately refused an offer of a tour itt Brazil at the remuneration of £ 1,200 a night. Fairly handsome salaries are paid also to leading artist? of the Vienna opera. Herr Winkleniann, a tenor, who appeared in Lon- don in German opera eome years ago, is paid 26,000 florins for a season of nine months. M. Van Dyke gets about 24,000 florins, but he sings only seven months of the year in Aus- tria. Frau Materna, who is soon to retire, to be re-placed by Frau Klafskv, gets the same amount for the whole year, and Frau Schluger, the dramatic soprano, receives 20,000 florins per annum. The tenors thus get more than the sopranos. Mile. Zellie of the Theatre Lyrique, at Pans, while singing at a concert in the Society Islands in the course of a tour around the world, was to sing an air from "Norma" and a few other songs, and bargained for a third' of the receipts. She found that her share con- sisted of three pigs, 23 turkeys, 44 chickens, 5.000 oocoanute and a considerable quantity or bananas, lemons, and oranges. -?
