THE PRUSSIAN CHOIR.. TO APPEAR NEXT WEEK AT CAR- DIFF IPANTOPTICONU Herr Pareezer, who will appear at the Panopticon. Cardiff, next week with his magni- ficent dioramas and highly-accomplished Prussian Choir, band, and sketch, party, has had an interestinu and eventful, career. Although only 36 years of age, nearly every town, on the Continent, is familiar to him, and. what is more interesting to u". his travels in the United Kingdom have extended into all the picturesque nooks and corners of North Witle4. with tibe beautiful tioenery of which be became no enamoured that he eventually settled down, at Abaiystwith, "the Queen of Welsh Watering-places,and is now the pro- prietor of a flourishing opera-house there and a. rHoynjj era five bill-posting business, which, thanko to his energy and business capacity, w flourishing also. One of OUT representatives on Friday travelled to Bridgend, where during the past week Herr Pareezer has been delighting the inhabitants bv his refined, instructive, and. interesting entertainments, and sought out. the genial "traveller for the purpose of learning from hifi own lips the story of his lif-s. The pressman was cordially received, and spent a, delightful afternoon in Herr Pareezer's company. "I arrived in England in the early seven ties. said Herr Pareezsr, as the pressman produced his mot el took, "and when J oarne to Hhis Icountrv from Poland, where T \>;is born, of Jewish, (parent?, I oould not apeak a word of English. Under the tuition of A German master in London, however, I soon made pro- gress, -and. although I found your language terribly hard to learn, I at last mastered1 it." Our representative trinarked itWt Herlr Pareezsr had not been guilty of any exaggera- tion in using the last, phrase, bemuse he speaks English as perfectly as if he were "native and to the mannef bom. "Having become familiar with the Knglish language," continued the. principal of the Prussian Choir, "I took up a position under 1'. mill-fitting firm, and travelled the large manufacturing towns oif England, as their representative," "And when did you siurt your career as a public entertainer?" "I established t'he Prnseiam Choir in 1889. and since then have given entertainments in all parts of England, Ireland, and Wales, The choir has been a great success, and we have young ladies of several nationalities travel- ling with us, including many Welsh girls." You have, you say, been generally success- ful in your work ?" "Distiiucrol-y RO. Without undue egotism, V think I oa.n. say ihjat. my entertainmewts have succeedied tri'umfpih'.iintly aM a4on,g (the line, eulogies having poured, in from all sonts and conditions of men, '.noluding- clergymen, Wes- leyaiLS, Congregatiowa-li^ts, Roman Caffticffics, Baptists, Presbyterians, y~d others, whose adwiiraition. for these entertainmemtt- hseti expressed in no unstinted terms. Iinfcleed I have me* witih wondiertful kind-news from, vast numbers erf clergymen and ministers and lead- ing citizens all over the land." "The dioramas have been very greatly ap- preciated as modes of educating the people, then?" "Oh, yes. You see, I act as guide to brighten the journey each evening with anec- dote and chatty description; but my talk is always instructive. When we speak of the pictures thrown upon the screen, desfcriptionr. must necessarily fall short of the reality; and J can only advisfe those who want to know to what excellence the photographer's art has teen carried to visit my pictorial exhibitions, where the exquisite beauty of the weirdest, wildest, and most lovely scenery and archi- tecture of the world is depicted with a faith- fulness of colouring and outline second only to the great artist, Mother Nature herself." "How do the members of your choir like the life?" "They enjoy it very much. We are like one large family, and we are all very happy together. At one time I had several gentle- men in vJie company, but the choir is now without them, as the young gentlemen would fall in love with the young ladies, and we had two weddings in six months." "T suppose you have had some funny expe- riences in the course of your travels?" "Yes, quite a oatalogue of them; but I cannot re-call them all to mind. on the spur of the moment. On one occasion we had to travel a distance of ten miles, and the mem- bers of the choir occupied a specially-retained carriage. During a break in the journey we were put into a siding, and the railway officials forgot all nbout us. When the wait became a little bit tedious I left the carriage, and asked the rail- way people how it was that the train that was to tek» us on had not arrived,and then I dis- covered the true position of affairs. It took us five hours to travel tho?e ten miles. At one phioe in the North the enthusiasm of intending patrons was so greatiliat they broke dowu the doors of the hall and tried to get in through the windows. Thit night a large number of the audience had to he accommodated with seats on the platform, and there was hardly room for my artistes to move. On another occasion til ft ourtains on the stage caught fire, and there might have been a serious panic if it had not been for the presence of mind of a gentleman in the audience, who jumped up on the stage and tore the burning ourtains down before the audience had recovered from the shock." Speaking of this country, Herr Pareezer, said, England, God bless it. It is the country of freedom and toleration, and I hope it may be my abiding place for the remainder of niv life. I should like to say." continued the entertainer, that I was much struck with Cardiff on my first visit to it the other day. It is the most prosperous town in Wales, and I congratulate th* inhabi- tants upon their extraordinary business capacity." In tlie course of further conversation, H»;TT Pareezer said that the late Sir Joseph Monte- fioro was a personal friend of his, and that he was in possession of letters from Sir Henry Irving, Miss Ellen Terry, Marie Rose, and other great artirtes of the theatrical world. Although born of Jewish parents, Herr Pareezer is a Christian, having been converted to Chris- tianity at, Chesterfield, mainly tihixjugh the instrumentality of Messrs. Fullerton and Smith, two of Mr. Spurgeon's evangelists. This was in 1883, The etfeot of this step was electrical in Jewish circles, and it, resulted in tlie renun- ciation of Herr Pareezer by his parents, rela- tives, and friends. Herr I'aneezea during the oext fortnight, will give two entertainments tiailv, tLOO. Otf Moh Sundav pioiorial saoied roncerts will lie held by the Chnir. The pictures exhibited by Herr P&reeiMsr com- prise scenes all the world o'er, and are given ing subjects as follows; —"Round the World." "Canada," "America. ''Under rjia Br'tish Flag, "Old Ireland," "Pictureaqivf WaJes "Parir. aod Its Exhibition, "Ro^e, Thistle, and Sliamroek. "A Tour Through Europe," ''Tymdon, "The Isle of Mian," "The British loiarjos, *:r. Herr Pareezar is a most enter- taining lecturer, and never fails to the audience interested and in good humou^. <'
CARDIFF GRAND THEATRE. VISIT OF HARDIE AND VON LEER'S "THE PLUNGER. Mr. Viotor Steven's successful comedy, "The Village Venus, will be followed next week at the Grand Theatre, Cardiff, by the production of that well-known and highly popular American melodrama, entitled "The I Plunger." The piece is a portrayal of the sensational incidents which surround the life of the hero of the plot, "Walter Glydon," which role is admirably filled by Mr. Julius Roys- ton. The other characters in the play are sustained by a well-balanced company, which is under the direction of Messrs. Frank A. Gorden and Haldane Crichton. 'THE NEW WOMAN" AT SWANSEA THEATRE. On Monday next Swansea playgoers are to have a treat in the shape of a visit from Cotrryns Carr's Company in the "New Woman," by Sydney Grundy. We have so recently eulogised the play and this particular company on its visit to Cardiff, that further words are hardly needed. The eanstic wit and satire of Mr. Grundy's attack on the "new woman" has deligfhted London and sealed the fate of the creature in question. The com- pany includes Mr. B. S. Boleyn. Mr. Henry Arncliffe, Mr. Charles Calvert. Mist* Laura Graves, &c., who are well-qualified to take part in what the "Telegraph" called "the spanking race for conversational fame" fur- nished by this brilliant comedy.

Kitty Faced the Storm SIXTEEN DAYS ON A SHIP'S FIGUREHEAD. How the Maria L.'s Mascot Wea^ thered a Hurricane Clinging- to Minerva's Helmet. To see K-i t.ty—the Maltese cat of the. barque Maria L.—now, n-obody would, imagine that she had only a few weeks ago undergone an experience which entitles her to rank as the feline Dr. Tanner. She is sleek, round, and • playful, and she purred most amiably when t, reporter stroked her on the back while she wac ■ lapping a saucer of nalk. "I wouldn't give Kitty for a smafi fortune, sa,id, Captain Durso. "I think she's one of tbei most remarkable oats living. She nas4iad moreL; 9dv«ani4ires than perhaps any other' of:her tribe, but the la&t one was undoubtedly the most memorable or the lot. "You see. it. happened this way. We sailed. from Tarragona* July 27, and: were three weeks out whew a terrific storm arose. This raged wi.t'h Timost unabated fury for sixteen days. After' iA subsided I took an inventory of the. missing, but the only thing gone was Kitty. We searched high and low—in the shrouds, between decks—everywhere, but Kitty was no- where 4o be found. I oonoluded that she had. been swept overboard daring the storm, par- ticularly as one of the sailors told me that he had seen her basking in the sun less than- half, an hour before the storm broke loose. 'nt&; suddenness of the squall, I thought, bad taken ? Kitty unawares, and! the first lurch of the ship t had consigned her to a watery tomb. Tbe day following the storm was so sunny and balmy that. but for the mountainous sweett; of the wfl.f es, which were still fretting from the lashing they had received, we could scarcely realise what danger we had just- emerged from. "While I was taking my luncheon. Tony, the cabin boy, came running in. shouting. 'Kitty has been found.' Sure enough, there was Kitty, lying half dead on the deck. while the sailors were grouped around administering milk and stroking her fur a" gently as sentimental girls. "It seems that one of the men, while sitting in the pK)w of the ship, heard a plaintive sound ooming from beneath-the boom.Looking over, he saw Kitty stretched out in the angle formed by the projecting figure-head. The cat was frightfully emaciated. She lay on her back. Her eves were glazed, and every now and then she uttered a, scarcely audible ory. She made no effort to clutch a rope which was lowered to) her, and so the man went over and freed her' from her perilous position. It is probable that Kitty jumped ii&m the boom to the f¥8Sdte*hea<L just before the storm. But when the squall came the leap back was too dmcrorous, and an she.; clung to the back of Minerva, the figurehead, all during the sixteen days' storm. She couldi; not have had a mouthful of food in aU that time,, < and she must have concentrated all her strength: i during the whole period on retaining hoc -? hold." (v —————— ft.
MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. f§ ??;; THE COMING CONTESTS IN THFLL CARDIFF WARDS. FJ| On both sides there arp sigEe of increasing i activity with reference to the Cardiff municipal^ el<<"tiov>s. and the trend of events point t vary exciting contents in most, if not ail.of i the warde. As far as the Gen/oral Word is*: concerned'. Mr. Robart Hugihes. the retiring*- roemib^r, JbolcU tilie field to himself, as also^j- j dow Mc. Tuekeir ;r>, the South- In Splottf. 5 WWd Mr. Robinson vs, so far, 'the omlv cafi- j didate .m the field, 1-iiit there is gome talk of a deputation waiting upon Mr. E. W.

In .Hivenside the Literals have not yet 7>ro-v duopd sa. candidate, wfliile in AdfiimsdJowm, tQe; ConntitutionaJdsfcs have not up to the jirestufc' put a champion in the field. An unexpected' difwcikkprneoit has taken place in Cathays Ward, it bediijg freely rumoured that the Ra.diai.Lj- theire intend running a (pronounced liberal™ candidate, ibaoausfl they have not suffioientiJ j confidence in Mr. Orossmnan, the retiring? member, aa a party man. THE POSITION IN THE ROATH WARD. As regards the Roath Ward, there have been numerous pourparlers with reference to that Conservative candidate, with the result that Mr. J. B. Ferrier hew. beten waited upon, andi i will give his decision to-day (Saturday). We are authorised to state that there ix no tru&lM in the statement, to which very widespread cur- rency tyw been given tha.t the leaders; of Conservatism in Roath jhava been parties +o* any arrangement with the sitting member for the purpose of allowing him to retain his seatt iv, oonaideration of no opposition being offered*: to Mr. Riohes in Park Ward, or the abandon- ment of opposition to (any sitting Conservative' member. The loyalty and zeal of the*- gentle- men ought to have been too weli known, and have already been so apiply proved,, as to sufficiently discredit any im-: putation of trafficking with the rights of th»' Boath burgesses without their knowledge. Thw; princples of Constitutionalism which theses gentlemen profess and hava done so mucbi to vindicate, demand for the rate. payers in the wards to absolute autoiiomy, and "vhe "ight to choose their OUT, representa-; lives without being made the sport of faction or the counters in any game of local politim. THE PERSONNEL OF THE COUNCIL. A good deal of the discontent with the pre-, sent personnel of the council arises from (fact that, men have been pushed; into positions of influence and; responsibility without either natural; or acquired qualifications for the position. Brazen lungs and ostentatious professions religious md Radical orthodoxy have be,sn- accepted ss a substitute for common sense and. giasp of intellect. GRANGETOWN WARD. MR. F. A. FOX TO BE INVITED. A meeting of the Grangetown Liberal Asso->J oiation was held on Friday night at the Primi- 1 tive Methodist Chapel, under the presidency • of Air. Mareha-11. builder. There was a good attendance. The meeting was called to con- sider the selection of a candidate to contest the ward in the Liberal interest, and the names sub- mitted were those of Mr. S. Mildon, Mr. F. A. Fox, Mr. Louis Stinuel, a1:d Mr. G. W. Davies. Mr. Mildon secured the unanimous vote, but he declined to stand on account of ill-health. The meeting then rejeoted Messrs. Louis Sanmel and G. W. Davies, in favour of Mr. F. A. Fox, upon whom a deputation will wait to-day (Saturday), and will report the resulb of their interview at an adjourned meet-, ing on Monday eveniing. SWANSEA. Mr. Alderman Chapman, on the termination of his office as alderman, does not intend to seek re, election to the council. Mr. F. Bocfce held meeting in the Victoria Ward on Friday evening, at which he declared his intention of standing* for the ward. -=:
MADAME PATTI'S ILLNESS. The indisposition of Madame Patti was, the. "Daily News" learns, nothing worse than a; chill, doubtless a result of the sudden change- in the weather last week. Her voice has been but slightly affected. In towns where she dis-, appointed she hopes to give an extra perform mance later in the season, although th management have, of course, offered to ex-) change ticket* or refund the money.
