SWANSEA'S GRAND OLD MAN. MB. DEFFETT FRANCIS'S EIGHTIETH BIRTHDAY. Mr. J. Dtffett Francis, the hon. curator for many years of the Swansea. Art Gallery, completed his eightieth year on Thurs- day, and received the earnest congratulations of his friends on the interesting event. At the last meeting of the public library committee Mr. Francis stated that he was about to resign, and he left the room in one of his huffs, stating that he had never sought the thanks of Swansea. people and God forbid he ever should. But Swansea people know Mr. Francis, and they decline, and have declined for vtars past, to take him too seriously at these crises. Mr. Francis can fairly say that- he has done for Swansea what pro- bably no one has done for any similar institu- tion in the country, and Swansea refuses to be annoyed by his brusque L arlyleian deportment. Mr. V raneLs's soul is wrapped up in the Swan- sea Public Library, and we believe he will, after all, die in harness, for where oould he be happy except amongst his valuable books and prints. Mr. Francis 1ms given Swansea the 8,000 volumes fromin^ the Deffett Francis Col- hction in the library, and over 300 ngTavin»' fcf •. to ?rt- jpll°ry connect .d with tlm tame institution, some of these latter being still un- hung for want of room. Mr. Francis, who be- longs to a fine, old owausea family, and is brother of the late George LTraut Francis, the antiquarian and historian, commenced his gifts to the library by a substantial nucleus many years ago, since which he has been an un- fatigable collector, and month after month has seen him presenting some book or work of art to the comniittee, who have duly thanked him, had the pictures framed (when necessary), and placed the books on the shelves, and his independence of public praise and opinion has been illustrated all along in precisely the same way as at the last, meeting of the committee. Iersonally, Mr. Francis is a highly-cultured literary a.nd artistic scholar. He has himself painted some splendid pictures, and haf5 asso- ciated in his younger days with some of the most eminent- artists and literary men of England. He was one of the founders of the Savage Club, and was a well known character in the Metropolis years airo. He is a remark- able conversationalist, and his stories of the days that are gone are vre! worth listening to. Swansea people will join in wishing Mr. Francis many happy years of life aic — .-r-t Ins books and pictures.
COAL SHIPMENTS. EFFECT OF THE THREATENED STRIKE AT CARDIFF. As we foreshadowed a short time ago, the I coal shipments for the port of Cardiff during I the month of April show a tremendous falling- off, and this is entirely attributable to the threatened strike in the coal trade. As a matter of fact, there were 386,056 tons less coal shipped last month than in the previous month, and compared with the correspond- ing month of 1894 there is a falling-off of 232,915 tons. The previous experience has been that whenever a threatened interruption of work has been settled there has been a spurt of trade for a short period. As a matter of fact, in this instance the demand for coal has been verv much less since the settlement of the last "dispute than has been the normal state of trade for several months. This evidence, surely, should satisfy Messrs. David Morgan, William Brace, and other leaders of the men that it is not within the power of labour leaders to create a demand or find a sale for even South Wales coal, and they are, doubtless, aware that, owing to the slackness of trade, the Scotch coal- owners as well as the Northumberland and Durham owners, have been compelled to make serious reductions in the wages to enable them to keep open their pits. It is computed that each ton of coal shipped from Cardiff means 5s. in wages to the various bodies of men who handle it. On this basis, the loss in wages to South Wales workmen is no legs than £ 79,000, which is altogether exclusive of the decreased earnings and profits of the colliery owners, railway and dock companies, and shipowners.
CATFORD CYCLING CliUB. LORD TREDEGAR BECOMES VICE- PRESIDENT. A general meeting of the members of the Cardiff Branch of the Catford Cycling Club was held at the Royal Hotel, Cardiff, on Thursday evening.

PREMIER'S ILLNESS. PAINFUL. EPISODE AT THE LIBERAL GATHERING. With reference to the Premier's sudden pause and apparent indisposition while engaged in the delivery of his address at the National Liberal Club on Wednesday night, the Press Association learned on Thursday afternoon that his lordship was not feeling quite himself on Wednesday evening, the fatigue of an exception-ally busy day coming so soon after a prolonged and weakening ill- ness having proved too much for him. The Premier was busy all the morning, and in the. afternoon attended the drawing-room at Buckingham Palace, and afterwards gave a dinner party at his official residence. When he subsequently attended at the National Liberal Club he was very tired, but deter- mined to deliver the speech which was ex- pected of him. The indisposition which caused him to break off in the middle of a sentence happily passed off, and Lord Rose- bery on Thursday, though still not absolutely free from the effects of over-fatigue, was otherwise well. Sir William Broadhent visited the Premier on Thursday afternoon, and the Press Association is in a position to state that the doctor expressed himself as satisfied with his lordship's condition. The "Evening News and Post," writing of the gathering at the National Liberal Club on Wednesday evening, says:—The event of the evening was the coming of the Prime Minister. His illness has terribly pulled him down, and as he came into the crowded reading-room, leaning on a stick, he looked pale and wan. as though scarcely convalescent. He spoke almost immediately, and in the earlier portions of his speech was as happy of phi ase, as polished in delivery, as one has come to expect him to be. But when he had been speaking for some five minutes there occurred a most painful episode. He was say- ing We are threatened," when suddenly the thread of his thought seemed to snap, and he stood silent, but still perfectly composed. There was a dead silence while one might have counted twenty. Then the Prime Minister took up the broken thread, and followed it to its breaking point. We are threatened," he said again, and again stopped dead. There could be seen behind the calm, impassive look the fierce workings and strainings of the miud, clouded by illness, temporarily enfeebled by the heat and crush. His nerve was admirable, and his ccmposure never once left him. He turned and sought the assistance of the chairman, who apparently was unable to aid him. Then, he looked round and whispered to Mr. Campbell- Bannerman. I really cannot go on." The W ar Secretary said a few words in a low tone, and tlier. Lord Roseberv, facing his audienr-e again. went on, I beg pardon, I lost the thread of what I was savinq; .t thp moment, and, con- tinuing, f iiishe d his speech in the same admi- rable style in which he had begun. The episode was a terribly painful one, and was a revelation of the serious nature of the illness from which the Prime Minister has been suffering. Thu "St. Jamee's Gazette" says :—Perhaps it was not wise of Lord Boseliery to go to the National Liberal Club reception. True, it was arranged tliat he and Sir William Harcourt should not be asked to speak in the same room. But the result was just as bad in fact, could hardly have been worse. With a capacity for raying just the wrong thing, to which we have bccome accustomed in Lord Rosebery since he spoilt a fair reputation for tact by becoming Prime Minister, he began his speech by declar- ing that the guests at the National Liberal Club were not dancing on a volcano. Am tins is just v liat all of them knew that, politically speak- ing, they were doing, it was about as tactful a remark as the further complaint of which Lord Roseberv proceeded to unbosom himself, t./ta.t the Liberal party was apt to become discon- c?' tcnttd with its leaders." But Lord Rose'ociy must have regretted his phrase about dancing on a volcano when he proceeded to follow it up by a "breakdown'' on his own account. For that the Prime Minister broke down there can be no mistake. We are very sorry, indeed, politics apart, that it should be SIJ, and that Lord Roseberv should still exhibit such painful evidence that he is still to be regarded as an invalid, suffering badly from that nervous pros- tration which is one of the most distressing of cur modern maladies. But Lord Rosebery's hfalth is such a serious element in the jxwition of the Ministry just low that, after the plain j evidence of his physical weakness on Wednes- day night, it is not surprising that the Radical organs on Thursday morning, and notably the "Daily News," accurately reflects the lowness j of spirits in their party hv an utter absence of any enthusiastic or even cheerful adjectives. A middle-aged Prime Minister who looks white and worn, atfd. walks with a stick, and eannnt I struggle against obvious physical weakness suffi- ciently to carry on the thread of an unimportant little speech on a social festivity to an audience which would cheer the slightest word he uttered —is this the sort of leader to carry the Radical party to victory in, perhaps, the tightest place in which that p:;rtv has ever found itself in the course of its history ? Not without signifi- cance^ is it that it was immediately after declar- ing. y e are prepared to go oil at our posta if the Liberal party in Parliament and the country will give us their support," that Lord Rosebery went 'on, "We are constantly threatened we are harassed and came to ¡ a dead stop: and then, turning palefaeed to Mr. Campbell-Rannerman, whispered, I really cannot go on." And yet the fond Ministeria- lists are told that they are not dancing on a volcano. volcano. -? ??

DEATH OF MR. M'LUCAS. A POPULAR POITTYPRIDD MAN GOES TO REST. Mr. A. A. M'Lucas died at his residence, Berw-road, Pontypridd, at two o'clock on Thursday morning. He w as attacked by partial paralysis-the whole of one side being afflicted I -some nine days ago while out for a stroll on the public roadway near his home. He struggled unassisted to reach home, and almost mine diatelv afterwards, >vliile seated i:1 the ijar.'our and being succoured Ly rlls ho<o^< ^.} er, Mjss Lydia Evans, one .f iiis arms w.is o;*>«"•.• v<d to drop helplessly by his side. lie was as.-isted to bed, and almost •.mmediately afterwards hi., speech became affected, so that it was very difficult to understand what he said. He gradually grew worse, until be finally passed I away. Mr. A. A. M'Lucas came to Ponty- pridd from Scotland nearly 40 years ago, and took charge of a _dav school associated with the Weslevans of Wesley Chapel, and from that time to the close of his career he bore in the town a rather striking character. Most of the children of well-to-do parents in the town and neighbourhood were educated bv him. He v-3,« amp^inglj" pr^ud of his scholarship, and, with the air of a lordly pedagogue, it. was his delight to make the groundlings stare, by uttering scraps of Latin or Freuch. Everybody that knew "Mac-' was to his faults a little blind, and to his merits very kind. He was a well-read man, and was an able writer, but the writer once heard a fellow-Scotsman saying to him, ".Mal', you use words that are too big in your writings. You must have had a dictionary at vour elbow when you wrote that last article. The reference was to an article in the Pontypridd "Herald," which at the time he conducted. Ho seemed delighted with the comment of his fellow- countryman. for lie prided himself upon his linguistio powers. Poor M'Lucas! it is with deep sorrow the writer chronicles thy death. He was a Freemason and a stauncji Conser- I vative in politics. One is glad to know that his friends rallied around him during his last days, which were days of gloom. As an illustration of the kindness felt for him, it may be men- tioned that a few months ago three friends in the bar of the Butchers' Arms subserilied jS15, and others made up the sum to f20. The party then entered a break and drove to his residence and handed to him the said sum. Within the last- few days a sum of £ 21— £ 5 being from Dr. Morgan, Hafod—were sent to him. Not long ago "Hr. Gordon Lenox, \nysangharad, pre- sented him—pretending it was a loan—with £15. Those facts strilungly illustrate the kind- ness felt for him down to the olose of his life.
BAZAAR IN CARDIFF. A COMPLETE ARTISTIC AND FINANCIAL. SUCCESS. The second day of the Seasons Bazaar, which was opened at the Town-hall, Cardiff, on Wednesday, gave every promise of being as successful as before, a large attendance being registered, and the various articles for sale dis- appearing from the stalls in a really smart fashion. ? Councillor J. Ramsdale opened Thursday's proceedings with a neat speech, in which he promised a cheque of XIO towards the bazaar, which, as previously stated. was organised for the purpose of liquidating the debt on the Clare-street Mission. The Secretary then gave a statement of the takings of the first day of the bazaar, which showed that no less than Cl30 bad been collected. This sum included R6 handed in on account of the sale of tickets. The stalls representing the four seasons of the year had netted JE23, £13, E19, and zC7 odd respectively to Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter. The flower stall had realised no less than XII Ils., and refreshments had been sold to the extent of £ 11. These, together with £ 28 odd in the way of gifts, were the principal items of the amount. The enter- tainments, which included concerts, vocal and instrumental, dramatic- representations, &c., were well patronised, and Thursday's programme being quite as good as that of the preceding day, doubtless a large sum of money was collected from this source also. The baaaar in every way has been unpreoedentedly successful. --?--?-
A WELSH LEPER. DIES AFTER TWO YEARS IN AN IRISH WORKHOUSE. At Lisburn (Ireland) on Thursday the remains were interred of a man named John Evans, who died a few days sago in the local workhouse from leprosy. Evans, who was. J>erh;ips, the only leper in the United Kingdom, belonged to Wales, and was a seaman by occupation. Two years ago he was admitted to Lisburn Workhouse and completely isolated. He gave the guardians a good deal of trouble, for before, lie became blind throwrh the terrible disease he often escaped from the shed in which he was lodged, only, liowever, to be quickly re-cap- tured on each occasion.

-18 Shields to Stop Bullets, A FRENCHMAN'S INGENIOUS IDEA. A Light Portable Plate Behind Which He can Kneel and Fire at the Enemy. Equipping soldiers in war with shields to stop bullets is not a new idea, in spite of all the recent talk in military circles caused by the experiments with the bullet-proof cloth. In primitive warfare man's first idea. was to offer. a. protection against the arrows and spear- thrusts of his opponents, and for this purpose shields were always carried. Among tha ancients "liese shields were held in great vene- ration. Among the Frinks the ceremony of investing their chiefs consisted of carrying them on their shields. In Lacaedemonia the ics < of his shield meant disgrace to the sold ier "Rather be brought home dead on your shield than return without it." The Egyptian shield- was a perfectly movable parapet; with tha Greek sectum a vertical rampart could be get up or the torture could be built for attacking1 the walls of besieged cities. They were in all shapes, rectauigular, oval, roi^.d. flat, jmd curved. Those of Argos were formed lik-o lyres; those of Corinth like ivy leaves. The materials of which they were made wire infi- nite in their variety, from the golden shields of Solomon's guards a.nd those of the Assy- rians, of ca.ne covered with the skins of wild animals, to those of the Mexicans, made of tortoise shell. In modern times the first to experiment with a shield which should protect its wearer against bullets was Captain Goepp, of the French Zouaves, now lieutenant colonel, who, in 1868 and 1869 made a shield as high as a man, and said to be bullet proof. The Goepp system consisted of covering the front and flanks of an attacking column by a certain number of these shields, which were to be carried by extra-strong men. Experiments by Graves have demonstrated that the ball of the Lebel gun can pierce, at the distance of 40 yards, a steel shield of one-seventh of an inch thick. Goepp's shield is about a. quarter of an inch thick, and could withstand a fair volley of balls. By giving the shield an inclina- tion of from 30 to 35 decrees, the resistance to the balls was materially increased. Each regiments was to be furnished with 300 shields, which was computed to be enough to cover the front and flanks of three battalions. Wagons were to carry them to within 500 or 600 yards of the enemy, near some sheltered spot, where the distribution was to be made to the men detailed to carry them. These shields, being two yards high, were supposed to completely protect the soldiers marching within these living brestworks. The shield recently adopted by the Danish Army and construc ted by C aptain Von Holstein, is copied from the Geopp model and has its dimension* and general features. Tailor Dowe got his idea. for the bullet-proof cloth from a passage in a history of C'iailes '7.hich told of vlxapei or I't^nk- fort, named Osterman. who, in the sixteenth century, discovered a felt which was bullet- proof. This felt, or clothi, was made into plastrons for a body of cavalry, called the Regiment des Tuchtroeger. After experiment- ing for a yea.r. Dowe submitted to Colonel Von Oppen, commander of a regiment of Gienadiers at Mannheim, what he called his bullet-proof uniform, 'kugelsi-chei-e" uniform. 'Pbjis m iterial was from two and a quarter to three inches in thickness, and possessed a certain amoiiiit of suppleness, weighing from six to nine pounds a square yard. The use of these bullet-proof coats as a target-, according to the Geiman military journals, gave the follow- ing lesults:—Balls fired at 200 yards, pene- trated slightly; at 4-00 ya.rds. the projectiles just grazed the nap of the fflt. These results caused great excitement in Germany, and Dowe was summoned to Berlin to see the Emperor, and from him obtained permission to continue his experiments at Spaudau on a much greater scale. But they were not so succtw-ful in their ultimate results, later re- port say. A certain Major Briokman SOB- ccrded in perforating these plastrons at a distance of 600 yards several times con- secutively. and thus became temporarily famous, though his celebrity was due rather to his powerful gun. However, the question of protecting the soldier is -still under considera- tion in Germany. Recently another inventor, Reindel. presented to the Emperor, under the patronage of General Katteiiberg-Stachan, for- merly Minister of War, a bullet-proof eoat, which, while having all the powers of resistance of Dowe's plastron, has neither its density, thickness, nor weight. It has been suggested that a shield, which shall cover a man entirely, ind shall be furnished with two adjustable feet. to be set in the ground during halts and load- ing, is the only practical shield. It. should be higli enough to cover a kneeling man, and light enough to permit of his carrying his full quota of ammunition. A very olever model has been made by Lieutenant Guy, of the French Army. It is a shield held up- right by two pegs, fastened 10 the lower edge and firmly planted in the ground. On the right side a slight projection offers a support to the gun, and the kneeling man, resting his gun on it, also helps to keep the shield in a vertical position. This shield is intended to he carried by the soldier constantly. With fifty of these shields, a company can eovei, its front. Four companies could easily unite their shield* and form a solid marching front. The 200 shields thus massed together would be sufficient to cover the front of a battalion. With these shields the natural terror experienced by soldier in the front ranks would disappear, for. as he rises from his knees, he creates a will m front of him more solid than the earthworks he has just fired at, and as he feels the shock of the balls against his shield he realises how protected lie is, for he knows that any one of them was capable of stretching him lifeless on the ground. Grenest relates that during the siege of Sebaa- topol, after the fruitless and bloody assault- of June 18, the French Army received, by direct ) orders of the Emperor, 903 infantry shields, designed to protect the men who were to march at the head of the attacking column. But the cotniw Tilers were so "afraid of ridicule that they decided Hot to use the shields, and Napoleon's humanitarian plan fell to the ground. Admiral la Bonciere did not look at', the matter from the same point- of view as I Mareehai Pelissier, for at the Battle of Epinay, Nov. 30, 1870, lie ordered His men to wrap their' blanket1: around their chests to serve as shield*. A report by Boisdeiuent,, commanding the 135th Regiment, was as follows: "The men, infused with iww confidence by these means of pre- tention, displayed an extraordinary audacity Hid courage. I am very enthusiastic over this r:ew shield, which preserved me fourteen out )f every hundred men. I do not think I am ixaggerating in saying that there is every reason u advise the adoption of this innovation in thft Army.
