The assembly crept one by one from the gloomy chamber, casting fearful glances over shuddering shoulders. In bated breath the ominous happening of the evening- was debated, and people whispered what it IH rtended. There had been a meeting in a. .school house and not one speaker had men- tioned the Education Bill, "I don't think there is room for four thea- ties in Swansea," stud the man with the se- cond-hand pinc-nez: "and this place'll never pay.

Taking Swansea for exam- ple, we find a very capable battalion of mes- senger cadets, who do their carbine- drill with a precision that many volunteer companies would open their eye,- at. The atmosphere oi discipline is carried into their daily duties, and when three telegraph boys are seen in the streets they invariably march in r-niai,t Indian ale. and inspire feelings of respectful awe m the minds of rotund French captains who- wonde" very much whether conscription would make them half so pleased with them- selves. A name-sake, the Cambrian, published in interests of the TVekh community in the States, has a diverting article on' religious camp meetings and their a,buse.
