LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,— At the request of a large number of ratepayers of the Park Ward, I have consented to become a candidate for the present vacancy in the Cardiff County Council. I can venture to say that I am no stranger to you, having resided in the Ward for many years. I am also known to many of you as a large Kite- payer and an Employer of Labour. I trust to be excused issuing a lengthy address, as I have already oppe&red before yuu publicly, and will do so again before the day of election. Speaking generally, I am in favour of an economical and pro- greseive policy. If honoured by your confidence, the following are some of the matters to which I shall consider it my duty to at once devote myself: — The improvement of the condition of our streets by insisting upon the t.ee of better material in their construction and repair. The Extension of the Electric Light to the main stieets of this Ward. The careful selection of a Town-hall site for our large and growing tow.i. I am not disposed to give a decided opinion on the various schemes which have already been put forward, as I consider that the question is of such importance that facts and figures trust be seriously considered before arriving at 81 decision The further reduction of the Rates as far as can possibly be done consistently with the good govern- ment and prosperity of the Town. Should you do me the honour of returning me as your Representative next Saturday, you will have every opportunity of approaching me on all matters affecting your interests, and, being a resident in the Ward, I can claim to have a much greater interest in its welfare than aaiy non-resident candidate could possibly have Trusting to receive the favour of your vote and interest. Believe me to be, Ladies and Gentlemen, Your obedient Servant, J. W. COURTIS. Hillside, Penylan, Cardiff, January 16th, 1897. 49897 I BUSINESS ADDRESSES.

OUR SHORT STORY SPECIAL PLEADING. People never seemed better suited to each other than did Helen Reese and' Harry Haw- thorne. Both handsome; five years difference between them on the proper side. He with a good incom, she with a nice little pin-money. Surely nothing could be better. So they were married, and went upon their honeymoon trip; returned, and began to keep house, still tho- roughly satisfied with each other. In a year or two. there came a little be.by-a frail, dainty thing, as pretty as a waxen doll. One night there was running to and fro, and tears and anxiety. Baby had the orojp. The doctor came, but his earning was useless. Be- fore dawn broke the child died, After he was buried, it was a very sad home, and no other children came to take his place; if they had, matters would have arranged them- selves differently. But the woman who has no children is generally full of fancies that do not trouble happier women. To cheer his wife, Mr. Hawtihorne urged her to go out a little for change of scene. Plays were too lively for one in mourning, and a concert even seemed too gay; but she consented to go to some lectures, and when Mrs. Absinthe lectured on "Women's Wrongs," she heard the whole course. They opened new ideas to her, and after some more investigation of the matter, and a visit to a female suffrage club, Mrs. Hawthorne made up her mind that man was a tyrant. Had Mr. Hawthorn been wise, he would fUlIVe la/ughed and held hie peace; but, instead, he argued. Two men may afgue pleasantly women seldom m, Man and woman, especially man and wife, never. Heathenish ideas crept into poor Mrs. Hawthorne's mind and she put away the Bible and hymn-books. Superior notions possessed her. and instead of sewing while he read, or talked with her, she wrote, and begged him "not to make a noise." Poor Mr. Hawthorns came home after soiling woollen goods at wholesale, with a great desire for a nice, cosy time. He was not at all a literary man; he "couldn't see the sense of Byron," and wondered what people liked in Dickens. His criticism on Hamlet, which he had onoe seen, was, that it was "very nice." And though he was "as smart as a steel trap" wihen it came to making a sale, and a good- huimoured fellow, who knew what went on albout him and showed it, he had suffered a "od deal since his Helen had been taken Ii »rary ;and, moreover, having consulted Colonel Hohkins, who was a friend' of his, and a very old and experienced man, having had four wivoo-bwo dead, one divorced, the fourth still living— "'Don't let her get the bit in her teeth, or ..he'n run away witlh you," sa.id the Colonel. "Assert your authority. Nice little woman, but led away by these new ideas. No harm in writing, if it's a bit of verse to a canary or somebody's baby, or that sort of thing, but if she comes to essay on woman's wrongs, you know, stop it-at once." So poor Mr. Hawthorne essayed to stop it. Easier said than done. i "You also are a. tyraint, and one of the worst I ever met," said Helen. "Ah, how much happier is a single woman! Why did I marry?" That evening Mr. Hawthorns did not go home to dinner. He took hie dinner at restaurant, and called afterwards on am old acquaintance of his, a Mrs. Tomlinson. She was one of those females who are always quite accessible to any flirtations masculine. Laura was delighted to see Mr. Hawthorne, and th?y went to the opera, and enjoyed it very much. She told Mr. Hawthorne that "he did not know what it was to be lonely." And he, thinking of Helen, with her back to him and her paper before her, said "he rather reckoned he did." After this evening Helen had rather more leisure to wr-te essays, and to attend lectures in company with a lady friend of sympathetic proclivities and an old gentleman who was a friend of the cause," and appeared to have a sort of Platonic affinity for the ladies generally. Thtait was the beginning. At last came the end. Helen desired to lecture; her husband declared she should not. She heard of Laura, and 88 no woman is ever deep enough in any "ism" to escape jealousy, grew jealous accordingly. There was a night of storm, a, day of brood. ing. Then she said to him You are cruel and unfaithful to me. I h<¡,te you." He paid to her: You are wrapped up m ridiculous 'deas. You run about to lectures with an old ecalla- wag "A what?" asked Helen. "An old idiot and loafer," Mud Mr Haw- IShopne. You forget your duties as a wife. As for me, I'm true enough to you; but I admit that Laura. is a more agreeable woman than you have become." "Elective affinities decide themselves," said Helen. "It is well." Elective fiddlesticks crird her huf-band. "I'm sick of big words with no meaning to them, and of the cant of your confounded cause." "And I am sick of tyranny and old supersti- tions," said Helen- We should never have tied ourselves together." "Never," said the husband; "and, by the way, we can easily untie the knot. We can separate. You couldn't get a divorce, nor could I, probably, but we can separate. With all, my heart," said Helen. I'm sure I never want to marry again. I've had enough of it." "Nor I," said he. One woman would be enougih for any ma.n, I should say. Well, it is agreed?" "Agreed," said Helen. So that day Mr. Hawthorne went to his old lawyer, the one who had settled his father's estate, and been a family friend since his baby- hood. She's perfectly virtuous," said poor Haw- thorne. "I don't doubt that; but we don't agree. Ail tlhoee 'iams,' you know, and running about with Heaven knows who, to hear Heaven knows what. I'll go to a boacding- house again, and try to forget that I ever loved her, or that she ever loved me." And he gave a great gulp, and turned away. "And you?" said tihe old man. "Well, hoime wae not happy, and I have enjoyed my evenings with a. pretty woman, and spent some money on her; no worse," said Hawthorne. =-- "Good," said the lawyer; "I have the case. Well, my boy. I'll call for you both to-morrow, and you must go with me—no matter where. When you reach the spot, if you still agrees to be sepaa-aited, I will give you the deeds to sign." "Can't it be done at home," said Hawthorne, "to avoid publicity?" "No," said the lawyer, "not at home: but there shall be no publicity whatever. Be ready at three o'clock, and I will call for vou." Hawthorne did not go to see Laura that evonintr nor did his wife write essays or go to a lecture. They sat apart communing with memory. "If she had Ibut been wlhalt I thought her," said Hawthorne to himself. "Ah! how I loved him on--e!" said Helen. But they spoke no word to each other; and when the old lawyer called next day he found itihera sitting at opposite sides of the room, looking at the floor. He shook hands with both. "I have a carriage waiting," said he. "Will you come?" He offered his arm to Helen; her husband followed. Tiiey stepped into the coach. It drove away. The old gentleman drew the blinds down, amd they had no idea- of the direction in which they were going. The drive lasted for three hours. At last the coach stopped; the driver alighted and opened the dOor. The good lawyer descended and handed out the lady. The unhappy husband also stepped out. The coach drove away. They stood in ;• graveyard. Weeping wiHows were all about them. The grass was green, and white tombs arose on every hand; and at r their feet lay a. little grave, and on the white slab was written: "OUR WILLIE, aged One Year." Yes," said the old man, I have brought I you to your child's grave, Helen and Harry Hawthorne, and if here you ask me to put, asurder those whom God hath joined I needs I must do it." I He paused. The man turned away his head. I Tlie woman burs<t into tears, and sank down be-ide the grave. I Oh, Willie, that it should come to this with your fat-heri" she raid- Then her husband drew nearer to her. Helen," he said and he could say no more. She looked up. "But you said you liked her better than you did me," she sobbed. I couldn t bear that." „ "Then you love me a little f>1tHI, Helen. Hv? knelt down beside her. She turned, and flung herself into his arms. I I'll be good'. Harry." she said as a child might, and not thinking of her words. Lot us go home." And then the lawyer beckoned back the ooaohman, and they drove back together and put the deeds of separation on i'he kitchen fire, where they burnt to ashes. And if ever lawyer had reason to he proud of his pleading that lawver had. He had pleaded the cause of wedded love and its holiness, a-nd won his Capp. And often afterwards, more gentle with each other—he more considerate of her wishes, she n:iore yielding to his will—"these two, onoe so nearly separated, ble»sed him together.

MR, STEAD AND THE PRINCE OF WALES. I hear. says the London correspondent of the "Western. Daily Mercury," that, in con- nection with a character-sketch of the Queen which lie is presently publishing, Mr. W. T. Stead recently secured the unusual distinction of an interview with the Prince of Wales. The meeting took place at Sandringham. and it is understood to have been arranged through the good offices of the Countess of Warwick. Mr. Stead succeeded in eliciting some unpub- lished material with respect to the personal history of her Majesty. He has naturally not yet disclosed the substance of the state- ments which the Prince of Wales was good enough to make. But he has admitted to his intimates that in the cour.se of the inter- view he himself made the characteristic re- mark :—"I don't deny, your Royal Highness, that you have a certain influence in the country in virtue of your position.

LONDON AND WETiSR WATER SUPPLIES. Air. W. J. Dibdin read a paper before the Society of Chemical Industry on Monday even- ing on "The Character of the Londoti Water Ssuppiy." In order, he said, that the exact position cf the present supply might be clearly understood, so far as regarded tihe question of relative quality and tlie extent to which an improvement might be anticipated in the event of the Welsh water being brought to lcndon, lie eubmitted several considerations arising from the comparison of the anal/ces of the water at present supplied to London with those of the Welsh waters collected by the author in May, lc'94. The Welsh samples were drawn from the Rivers Usk, Edw. Yrfon, W ye. Towy, Ithon. and Clywedog, which were, of course, unfiltered, though they were taken in May, the HUst favourable time in the vear, when the streams were running ve:y freely. The samples representing the present tUte.-?d liver wa.ter ,t I plied to London were averages of the Southwark, Lambeth, Chelsea., Grand Jrncti m, West Middlesex, and Faet London. From this comparison of the average results of nearly 3,000 analyses it was evident that the oiganic impurity of the unfiltered Wflsl water was a little less than that in the average filtered Lcndon water, and the inquiry M.ituially fol- lowed ac; to the specific differences which existed. This was undoubtedly lu,, tl two i'lings—first the quantity of the sol'd matter | in solution, principally saits of lime, pmncr ih* London water its great hardening properties; p nd. secondly, the comparatively large quantity of floating particles, on which the i.i--inbpr of microbes present to a great extent depended. The unfiltered Welsh water examined on the spot contained 26 microbes per ,.ubic centi- metre, whilst the avetrge London filtered waters contained in summer 167 ./id in winter 298. the Kent supply oont?i' 90. Of ^curoe, it would be noted that the.-e numbers referred aolelv to the quantity and not Vj ths character of the microbes. character of the microbes.
