J LADIES' GOSSIP. # (BY "YEAE."> « (t jMt*##*#*# Sir Henry Irving. Graphic Personal Pen Picture. Undoubtedly Sir Henry Irving will go down in history as one of the re-ally great figures of tiie Victorian a.nd Edwardian eras., undoubtedly, in the history of the stage, he will be remembered with Uatri^ a.nd Iveaai. The judgment of the in-toelligeiil t.vre,gner is the nearest we can get, to tHe judgment of posterity. and oa-rtainly tried by that Gt-and- iird, whether in Francs, Germany, or in the 'Cn.ted States, Sir Henry comes out triumph- ant. Heroe is a brilliant little pen-portrait of him by a French writ-tr:—"Tail, kan, and a little bent, his gait short and quick, his face long, framed m abundant grey lUld fall ing over his shoulders, he has a ctrikinkJy individual appearance. His bright, black, deep-t\hrunken eyes are slmded by thick eye- brows, and protected when he goCa out. by pince-nez bestriding a • straight nose. His complexion is pale, h;8 mouth of a dtffl.cate refinement. hi* chin well-denned, denoting a (strong and tenacious wi!]. The expression of the whole man is one of sympathy combined with energy." 10 Some of Dame Fashion's latest whispers are that coloured furore 6.1ks are more chic than the fawn varieties. That nut-brown voile and the same weave in Royal blue has no rivals in fashions favour. That blue and white check, trimmed with little bows of blue velvet, tiny steel bucklcs a.nd endF. and maJines laoes, makes a ch.c gown. Tiiat embroidered linen collar and front cut all in one, is worn with either tailor- made or lace gowns. That rose-ooloured cloth is used for long coats to be thrown over evening gowns. That liat trimming is visibly creeping to- wards the back of the hats. High crowns, with a little garniture, is seen at the front, whilst long plumes curl down the back. That long sash ends that fall to the edge of the skirt at the back, arc headed with loops of the wide ribbon that reaches almost halfway up the back. j That linen de eoire is one of the new materials which is made up into fashionable lummer dres»3s. Little butterfly bows down lhe front of a bodice, give it quite an up-to- date touch. That bronze bilk, fashioned into an effec- tive ceinture, can be worn with almost any gown. 'f' Have you ever, seated yourself in it favour- able position, and watched a promenading crowd" greet their acquaintances? If not, 1 can proiruse that you would enjoy the ex- perience. The different way women bow is well worthy of note, for although bowing is the chief form of salutation in this country, yet how few can perform the tJnng properly. Some people's bow becomes merely a twitch- ing of the face, dropping the eyes, iafctng or lowering the eye-brows, or stretching bacic the mouth. Others, I have remarked, seem very proud of the way they jerk their head forwa.rd without dislocating their neck, a.nd most of the people who bow with the body compel ofe to gaze awe-stricken at the per- formance. There is an easy way of learning to low gracefully, if only it is practised be- fore a glass. Just practise bowing natur- ally, and see how you look all the time. Don't trv to accomplish any,thing unique, but incline the head graoefully, and smile as if you were pleased to see the imaginary friend you are meeting. Some girls flitng t|.ie.r heads backward, and throw out their right hand, without any idea of the grace and' beauty with which they might endow a friendly greeting. Lemons are in season all the year round, but art at their best, ajid generally cheapest during early summer. Like the orange, the peel contains an essential oil of a. high flavour and fragrance, which is much es- teem-ed for flavouring, and which at the name ttnws acts ae a mild tonic. In the sick room the juice forms a cool and refreshing drink, which is invaluable as a beverage drink in inflammatory diseases, for. like quinine, it has the -property of lowering the tempera- ture of a lever-stricken patient. For colds thej are unequalled. The juice of a, lemon .squeezed into a tumbler of hot water, a.nd drunk (;n getting into bed, will cauee pro- fuse perspiration, and effect an almost im- mediate cure. Pure lemon juioe is highly re- commended for biliousness, and taken in a glass of Oi>ld water before breakfast, is said to be a cure for bilious headaches. Most women know the value of l-emons for the toilet. They there find a permanent place on every toilet table, for they are par ex- cellence for removing stains from the hands, for cleaning the finger-nails, and the juçe mixed with buttermilk, and applied with a piece of soft muslin, form a cheap lotion, and is said to keep the face smooth and free from tan and freckles. Even when all the juice is extracted, the lemon is not worthless, for half of one dipped in salt and used to clean copper will produce a brilliant polish, if the article be immediately after rubbed with a soft clot It or leather. When a lemon is cut it will keep perfectly good' for some time if it is placed in a glass of oold water. The combina-tion of black and white, which has been so fashionable for quite a number of seasons, is nvvv repeating itself in a far more vouthful and entrancing form, that of cream and black. Cream for the drees, black for the hat. Fine cloth rather than serge; make up these smart cream gowns, which are of tailor build, and usually brottoir in length of skirt. No sooner does the sun shine than do these summery-looking creeses appear, and invariably th-e, black hate worn w.th them are largo. The ostrich plume is a speciality of these hats, and to be up-to-date, the feather, whether it be worn at the side, across the top, or forming the trimming be- neath a well-arched brim, must be threaded through the hat in some way. If the long quill and pat of the feather go Lacing in and out several times, so much tir- be>t4?r. This rule applies to all hats, large or mnüll. Blouse coats of all kinds are among the most fashionable of the sea&on. They are made on very much the same lines, but a-ll have belts. They are short. whether made in silk, cloth, railing is almost an incom- prehensible term now in dress-making, as so many different varieties of material are known bv that name which bear remarkably little resemblance one to the other. There are the close weaves of voili^p- the coarser ones like etaminicis a.nd canvases, the veilings With figures woven into them, the perfectly plain ones, and those with a silk or satin finish. and they vary in prioe as they do in appearance. It is sometimes considered a little difficult to obtain a suitable variety in t.he shirt blouse which most folks adopt for general wear. et there should not be any great difficulty of the kind, for so very little will alter the appearance of a whole' idea. For instance, it (ju.te simple shirt of flannel or flannelette may be smartened by the addition of some handsome buttons or some in'ets or iosectionis of lace. Perhaps we are gett-ing a little tired of the combination of flannel and lace. This, I think, because in no case can such a blouse loo it •'best," and for th* yery reawon we arc apt to stint the value of our lace when using it in such combination. Instead, therefore, it, is tetter, or at any rate it will do extremely well for a, changr, to employ other decorations or bicueeH of the kin, came across a dainty mootl le- made of rich bottle-green flannel, or was t possibly a fine fonte cloth? This was arroaieed with a tiny open "V" at the throat, filled in with a lace scarf wound twice round the neck, and tucked in to the cent!'? of the front. A stitched yoke of the material was supplied to this shirt blouse, which the front of t he lxidioe buttoned over in a wry smart fash and Wab finished with four pretty «rtmvivjlled but tons, in which greams and bluets, and a touch of pink were indescribably mixed. I h::> sleeves wer6 full, as all blouse sleeves should be, and were tucked right the way round from shouiter to elbow, the full- ness falling- thence Hornewhat deeply, and being eaueht up again to the waist with a Qsmwier cuff, stitched to match the yoke.
OUR COOKERY CORNER. Tipsy Cake.-f One moulded sponge or Savoy cake, sufficient sweet wine or sherry to soak it, six tablespoonful of brandy, two ounces of sweet almonds, one pint of rich custard. Out the bottom of the cake level to make it'stand firm in the dish, make a. small hole in the centre, and pour in a.nd over the cake the sherry mixed with the brandy to fioak nicely. Wheal the oake is soaked, blanch and cut the almonds into sfcrios, stick them all on.1I. this cake, and pour round it a good custard.

Flour the board and iol'!inc-pin, and roll out the paste, taking care that the edges are even. The rolling must be done with a forward motion, never from side to tide. Put r Ms remainder of the butter on in small pieces, sqweeae a little lemon^ juice over ii. and brush with white of egg. Fold agaan, roll in the same way. This must, be nine times; the butter will -obablv be used up h. the sixth rolling, and the last tlmee rolling must, be very smooth. If left to cool between rollings, the paste will be lighter, Brush the edges of the p'usdish w:t.h yolk of eg?, put on a band of paste, cut the cover brush over with egg, and bake i n.a hot oven! When a tart ie cold, boat the yolk of two ■eggs and a little cetsfcor sugar to a stiff froth.

Mynydd Mawr Wharf Action. In the Admiralty Division on Monday, Mr. Justice Barnes, sitting with Trinity Masters, heard the case of t!*e owners of the steamship Surrey, of Glasgow, v. the Llan- elly and Mynydd Mawr Railway Company and the Llanell'y Harbour and Burry Naviga- tion Commissioners. Plaintiffs sought to recover against de- fendants in -respect of damage sustained by their steamship at Llanelly. "Their case was that the first defendants were the occupiers of a loading wharf at Llanelly, and for the use whereof they ot the second defendants took tolls. In November, 1903, the plain- tiffs' vessel, by charter-party, arrived at the stage to load a cargo of coal, and was on No- vember 24 berthed. The berth, however, was foul, and the Surrey took the ground and slipped off, sustaining serious damages. The railway company denied that they were the occupiers or that the vessel was berthed at the stage by them. They denied that the berth was foul. The damage to the Surrey was not occasioned at Llanelly as alleged. The Commissioners in their defence said that at all material times the loading wharf was in the sole occupation oi the railway company. The hearing was adjourned.
Swansea Soldier's Fate Is He Alive Still? A somewhat singular story has been bruited around in certain circles in Swansea resolving itself into doubts eing entertained by some of the near relatives of a kcal soldier, who fought in the South African War as to whether he was really killed at the battle of Paardeberg—as was then notified to the widow. On what basis this supposition is placed vculd appear to be somewhat problematical, as the widow produced to a "Post" reporter on Tuesday the regimental book (embodying the will) worn by the presumably deceased, and which each soldier in the campaign car- ried sewn within his tunic, and affording the only clue, perhaps, to his actual identity. This was forwarded home by the W ar Office. A Swansea boy in the same regiment was with the deceased when struck down, and laid him out as he fell. The widow has—or rather her child has (for she only recently re-married)—re- ceived regularly her pension money since the date of the soldier's reported death --the last being as recently as Thursday. Her husband she describes as having been far too affectionate of disposition not to have communicated with her had he been alive, and certainly, seeing that four and a half years have elapsed since his reported death, it seems a little too much to consider him as oeing still in the land of the living. On the other side—that of deceased's mother, cannot adduce anvthim- in support of their theory that he is alive, beyond a report that the widow had received "a telegram from the War Office" that he was alive. This, how- ever, the widow strenuouslv denies-all that! she has received, she says, is a communica- tion front the Welsh Hospital authorities with regard to a surplus to be distributed to the Welsh soldiers' widows or children. This was returned, with the signatures of two well-known local* public men attached to it, and filled up as requested. It is said that a silly assertion by an al- leged clairvoyant who was recently in the town has more to do with the pother than anything else.
Burning Accident at Swansea. No. 9 of a few lonely cottages on Town Hill, Swansea, was the scene of a serious fire on Mount Pleasant on Tuesday morning. About eight o'clock a young girl named Nellie Davies, aged 17 years, wa.s in the act of lighting the fire in the house when by some means or other her skirt became ig- nited. Her father, hearing her scream, rushed in and endeavoured to extinguish the flames which were now enveloping the un- fortunate young girl. He succeeded in his efforts, but his daughter had received serious burns'about the legs and he himself was burnt about the face and hands. Both suf- ferers were conveyed to the" Swansea Hos- pital and had their injuries dressed, but it was found unnecessary to (ietain them. It seems that the girl's skirt was of the much- denounced flannellette, and that the parents and three other children were in bed at the time of the mishap, the father rushing down in his nightshirt directly he heard the screams for help. For a few moments the scene was very exciting. The girl and thIJ father were practically in flames and the other children's cries were so piercing that the neighbours' attention was attracted. But for the father's prompt efforts, it is certain that a more serious story would have to be unfolded. The rufferers are now both doing well. ■ f-

GUN ACCIDENT IN GOWER. Farm Servant Accidentally Shot Dead. Albert Leonard Coglan, a young iarm ser- vant, only 17 years of age, and who had for the past five months been employed by Mr. and Mrs. Mansel Bevan, at Overton House Farm, near Port Eynon, Glower, met with a r frightful death on Friday evening. He wa.s out rabbit shooting, and 'was shot full in the cnest whilst evidently attempting to pud the rifle through a thick hedge, for the gun, with one of the two barrels dis- charged, was found held fast in the bushes, whilst the poor lad lay dead on the ground about two yards from the hedge. The sad a j11! cas* quite a gloom over the district, and Mr. and Mrs. Bevan we're much cut up about it. "He was such a nice lad, and we d never had a cross word with him," said Mrs. Bevan to a "Daily Post" reporter, and then she detailed the circumstances of the tragedy and how willing he was in his work. "Oh, dear, dear," she said, "master regrets now that he ever allowed him to use the gun." INQUEST HELD AT OVERTON HOUSE. Mr. F. H. Glynn Price, the district cor- oner, opened the inquest at the Overton House Farm at nine o'clock on Saturday night. Mr. Charles Beva.n was foreman of the jury, who had no hesitation in returning a verdict of "Accidental death," circumstan- tial as the evidence undoubtedly was. Wm. Coglan, labourer, Knclston, the father of the deceased, gave evidence of identification. "Had he been accustomed to shoot?" the coroner asked. "I don't think he had been much here at Overton," was the reply; "but he had been accustomed to use a gun before he came here." "Was it his own gun?" the coroner added, and the ride, a double-barrelled, breechload- ing central fire, No. 12 Lore, was produced by P.C. Thomas, stationed at Port Eynon. Witness: No, sir; his master's. George Taylor, farm labourer on the neighbouring farm of Mr. Silvanus Bevan, told how, just about seven o'clock on Friday evening last he saw deceased carrying a gun towards the fields on Overton Farm. The Coroner: Did he tell you where he was going? ■ Witness Y&s, he said he was going to look for a rabbit. 0 Deceased then left, and this is the last time, so far as can be ascertained, he was seen alive. Mansel H. L. Bevan, of Overton House Farm, stated that deceased was chatting to him just before carrying out the gun. The Coroner: From what I have heard, he frequently went out with the gun shoot- ing rabbits of an evening? Witness Yes, sir. And when would he return?—He usually returned at about 10.30; but sometimes would not return but go to his home and come here in the morning. Witness explained that liiz was what he thought had happened on Friday evening, but on Saturday morning when deceased did not come to the farm at seven o'clock a bsual, it wa.s thought that possibly he v. in the fields getting the horses, or that .so;, accident had befallen him. Two search- I were made. The tirst wa.s unsuccessful, on the second occasion witness and a nou;; bouring farmer, Mr. Beynon, went to a fiei about a mile distant, and at about nine o'clock found the body of the lad lying on the field about two yards from the hedge. "Quite dead?" asked the Coroner. "Oh, yes, quite dead." "Body cold?"—"Quite stiff." Witness at once hurried back for assist- ance The Coroner Have you ever been the lad using a gun? Witness No, I've never seen him shoot. but be had been shooting a good deal since he's been here and before he came. Dr. A. E. Mole, in practice at Reynolds- ton, stated that when lie examined deceased the clothing he found was satur- the clothing he found was satur- ated with blood, and there was also hemorrhage of the mouth and nostrils. On the right side of the chest he found a gunshot wound about the size of half-a-crown, and the lung protruded front it. By the size of the wound, the muzzle oi the un must have been fairly close to the 'chest when the barrel wa-s discharged. Le ceased, he estimated, had been dead ior 12 or 14 hours, as rigor mortis had set in. Hemorrhage was the immediate cause of death. The foreman interposed as to the time of the accident, that he was shooting m some adjoining fields about eignt o CIOCK on Fri- day evening, and heard a report of a gun which attracted his attention because it had a muffled sound. Later on he passed on the opposite side of the hedge close to which the body was found. P.C. W. F. Thomas again produced the gun, and explained how he found it horizont- ally held fast in the bushes, while six yards away was the body lying on the right side with the face turned towards the earth. The right barrel of the gun had been discharged and the left was still loaded. The nozzle oouited towards the field where deceased was found, and the bottom of the gun lay up- W The'Coroner thought this an unusual way of finding a gun in a hedgc but it was thought by the jury that possibly the butt- end had become wedged in the bushes as de- ceased was attempting to drag it towards him, and that he had turned it round just as the trigger got caught. Witness added that there were three pools of blood on the grass, cne about a yard from the gun, another farther out, and a third back towards the gun again, as though de- ceased had reeled round before falling dead, The body was remo'ed to Overton House Farm. This was all the evidence, and the Coroner- in summing up said it was a sad case, and he was sure the jury felt great sympathy with the relatives. "We all know," he added, "how dangerous it is to get over a fence with a gun, and. what is stili worse, to drag a gun after you backwards. The pro ver thin'1' to do with a breech-loader is to open theP breech when you go over a fence. I always make a practice of it." The jury concurred, and returned a ver- dict of "Accidental death.
Swansea Lecturer on the- Hebrews. Facts about the Hebrew race were im- pressed upon an audience of about 300 at Holy Trinity Schoolroom, Swansea, on Mon- day evening by Rev. S. Schor, with the 00 ject of inducing Church people to increase their contributions towards the Society for the Promotion of the Gospel among the Jews. It was a mistake, the rev. gentleman said, to think that the Jew was after money for its own sake; he loved money because it would help him to educate his children. It was not uncommon to see a Jew working hard for very little, whose son would be taking a degree in college, or whose daugh- ter was studying in the Royal Academy of Music. On a lantern screen were shown portrait groups of Jews. There had been three or four Jew Lord Mayors of London, and a Lord Chancellor of England. "This is a Jew who also, I think, did something for his country," said the lecturer, as a portrait of Lord Beacons- field covered the screen. There were 300 clergymen of Jewish de- scent in the Church of England, and three bishops. In Warsaw, Russia, there were 300,000 Jews. The condition of Jews in Russia was simply appalling. The massacre and export- ation of Jews in Russia was alluded to. "Poor Russia!" continued the lecturer; "nobody ever touches the Jew but he suffers for it." Towards the end of the lecture pictures of Palestine were submitted. Mr. Schor had only two months ago returned from a visit to his native land. There was now, he said, a population of 50,000 Jews in Jerusalem. The Vicar of Swansea presided.

Bakers Union for Swansea. A moating of the Amalgamated Union of Operative Bakers and Confectioners (Swan- sea branch), was held at the Working Men's Club, Swansea on Monday evening.-Coun- cillor Morris presided.—The Chairman said some of the bakers worked 84 hours a week. -—Mr. H. Williams (South Wales secretary) said they commenced agitating in Swansea 14 yeaj-s ago, when the conditions were dis- graceful, ;.00 they were dis<jraceful to-day, men not earning as much as scavengers.— Mr. T. H. Griffin (London) delivered an ad- dress on "The benofit6 of Combination," and said some of the men worked long hours for 22s. a week becanse they liked it. (Laughter.) Others pleaded as excuses for not joining the Union that it was not quite respectable, and that they coaid not see the benefits. He showed what the benefits of the society were and said 14v<^rs ago in Cardiff foremen were receiving 22s^ a week; now Unionists got 34B. at the lowest. If there was any bake- houses in Swansea, where the manufacture was being conducted under rreanifcary con- ditions he shonid feel it his doty to expose that piace in the interests of society and he should make no apology for doing it. The Union had already <'<captored'" the best shops in Cardiff, Swansea, and other places. They had made 46 members in South Wales during the month. (Applause.)—Several new mem- hers were titro" 'd.
NEATH AND BKTNAMMAN BILL Before a Commons Committee on Tuesday, Westminster, Tuesday mommg.-A com- mittee oi the House of Commons, of. which Mr. Lewis Mclvor is chairman. on Tuesday took into consideration the Neath, Poota-- dawe, and Brynamman Bill, ,.which has al- ready passed the House of Lords, and tbe object of which is to confer further IOWC upon the Neath, Pontardawe, and Bryn- amman Railway Co. for the construction of railways and the raising of capital, etc Counsel for the Bill were Mr. Freeman, K.C., Mr. Ham, K.C., Mr. Sankey. and Mr Wolfe Barry. The petitioners against were the Great Western Railway Company (for whom Mr. Balfour Browne, K.C., Mr. Moon. K.C 1'(' Mr. Horatius Lloyd, K.C., and Mr. Thesige appeared), and the Consolidated Anthracite Collieries and others (represented by Mr. Seymour Bushe, K.C., and Mr. Rhys Wil- liams). The Chairman intimated that some mem- bers of the Committee were interested to some extent in the Great Western Railway. It was for the counsel for the Bill to sav u they were prepared to go on with these hon. members on the Committee. Mr. Freeman, K.C., replied that he did not object. I The Chairman (referring to a Bill in thr- group promoted by the G. W. Railway) asked whether that Bill and the present one were treated as compet'ng schemes in the other House. Mr. Freeman said that in the other Housi he had pointed out that they were not com- peting. The Great Western were then heard against the Neath and Pontardawe Bill, and they would be heard against it now. When the Great Western Bill came on there was one matter he should have to be heard upon but he did not oppose the principle. Mr. Thesiger: We say that there is no necessity for the proposal of the prom ters and we object to the line which they are ro- posing down this valley. The Chairman That does not make it a competing Bill. Mr. Freeman, explaining that he desired his Bill to be taken on its merits with the opposition of the Great Western to it, pro- ceeded to open the case. He pointed out that the Neath, Pontardawe, and Bryn- amman Railway was an existing line sanc- tioned last year. All that the present Bill proposed was Certain improvements and small extensions to the authorised line He traced the history of the undertaking, ex- plaining that the object was to bring coal irom the anthracite districts down to Neath, and S3 to Swansea and ether South Wales ports. Last year two lines came before the committee—the Neath and Pontardawe, and that of the Great Western Company and the committee decided in favour of the pre- sent promoters' scheme, the proposal of the Great Western being a round-about route, as was pointed out in the other House. Thiie was a great demand for the promoters' line, and they were now proposing improvements in the suggestion of the manager of the G. W. R. Company. There were three little variations—one close by Neath, one a little higher up, and one by Pontardawe. There was no objection to those which were mads, because irt one case the old line went uoo near the Tennant Canal in another to avoid an important manufacturing works, and also, thirdly, because a colliery wanted connection .Y with the line. With respect to the proposed pieces to the north to serve the Garnant dis- trict. they would give a far better means of connection between collieries and the main line. One of these pieces was not opposed. The others were opposed by the Great Wes- tern, who said that the promoters would interfere with collieries in which they had an interest, and by some of the coll'erv owners who were under the misapprehension that the l:nes would interfere with their works. There was no objection to the Great Western scheme here providing that their iine was laid out in such a wav as not to interfere with the Neath and Pontardawe system. Since the line was authorised traffic had more than doubled for Swansea alone. It showed the increased necessity for n relief line. There was no enginering difficulty, ana the whole of the local authorities were in favour of the proposal, which had strong financial support. Mr. Thomas John Hughes, solicitor Bridgend, alderman Glamorgan County Coim cil, spoke to that authority having parsed a resolution in favour of the scheme. A number of local witnesses resident ;11 Garnant were called to show the advantage of the promcrters' scheme, which they sa;d included the carriage of passengers and was preferable to the Great Western project. Mr. Honcratus Lloyd remarked that the Great Western Company would also carry passengers over their proposed line in this district. The witnesses of this character included Mr. Thomas Howe, draper, chairman of local Parish Council; Mr. William Owen Garnant: Mr. David Davies, grocer, Gar- nant Mr. R. S. Griffith, tinplate works man- aging director, Garnant, etc. Mr. W. N. Jones (chairman of the Car- marthen County Council) gave evidence in support of the scheme. Mr. C. Brerton, civil engineer, and a part- ner with Sir J. Wolfe Barry, Fpoke to the engineering features, and also said the growth of the district was very great and increasing and railway relief was required. These proposed lines were simplv improve- ments. With respect to the three* proposal?, he said that one started from Cwmgorse, and went down to the Garnant Valley to a no nt just opposite the Garnant Station. Another was a continuation line adjoining the Great Western Railway, and the third was a branch line to a colliery. The scheme im- proved the means of access to the Great Wes- tern Railway. The net cost of the propound oil new lines would be £85,(X)(), and that of the three lines objected to £ 74,300. Mr. Busbe cross-examined witness at length to show that the new line would interfere with collieries whose owners had petitior/e 1 against the Bill. Witness explained how in his opinion the difficulties might be sur mounted by bridging and tunnelling. The committee adjourned until Wednes- day.

Arabistan. of Swansea, on Mafch 2nd.

Manselton Estate: No Park Possible. At Tuesday's meeting of the Swansea Parks Committee, Aid. Spring presiding, Mr. Grey Walters, agent to the Manselton Estate, wrote with reference to the proposed park, and stating that the estate regretted that as it was so adequately situated for building, that none of the land could be pos- sibly disposed of for the park. A plan was enclosed as an alternative site on the Corporation Estate adjoining Cwm- bwrla, and within 200 yards of Manselton. No action was taken.

Another application came from a party who contemplated coming to Swansea for a holiday and give entertainments on the sands. Permission was granted on payment of 10s. a week. A simikw application was received from a Mr. Cutbell, who spoke in the highest terms of 4 his troupe. This application was not entertained- Messrs. Dan. Jones, Protheroe, and Solo- mon were appointed to visit the sands and report from time to time. Mr. Daniel Grow, 10, Victoria-avenue, wrote stating that he had suffered a loss of gl5 ttmmghihe dosing of Victoria Park, and asking to be recollped.-AIdmman Spring said if it rained some people wanted com- pensation.—The letter was allowed to lie on the table,
| ATHLETIC NOTES. BY £ "OLD ATHLETE." # Heavy Scoring at St. Helens. Swansea Compile Three Centuries against Cardift. Swansea Seconds Lose Their Record. Played oil an admirable wicket, the match betweein Swamsea and (Ja-iditf Firsts on Saturday led to some veirv hugm scwring, and endied in a draw, tliat wiui wholly in Swansea's favour. Swansea, de- clared w-tii 0C0 riuis ivr iune wickets, aaid Carditf, at tiie call of time, had suo-red 187 foir bin the pick of their baitecaen had been d.skxigea. ivllio wad muJiiij reapon- ai bl-e for Swan»ea's liigu score, lmKing 71 by splendid, vigorous hituiig, thougli he" gave a cuapie of chajicets. E. W. Jo-ues contri- bat,c,d,a govd 39, and Bancroft nearly earned talent money. Araasseor made 34 patiently, and H. W. Woodix contributed 2k, though Siunley Rees showed he had not yet- got into his striae. Swaiiooa Seconds had much worse fortune against* Caudiif Seconds. The latter team has ako baeu go-ing strong during the season, and on Saturday they added the Seooaid's MKXwd to their list- of "scalps." Pritehand was away, and his absence was felt, bowling being the weakness of the toeam from its Gimilairaty of style. J. A. Davies went 111 with J. J. Hili, and made a promising start, bat Hill was eventually beaten by a very: neat bail, afteri siiownvg mixed ba/titig. Davies was in tep-tip form, and when Hum- phreys joined him; and contributed 27 to Mite total; the telegraph indicated 60 runs for only one wicket. But with the advent of W. Pem-ii with the ball a ciiange oajne a'tT the scene, indeed. Johnston, Nk-holLs, Harry and It ore pool in turn went down. Johnson and Hazel pulled tliirgs together fcr a, bit, but the latter was taken at mid-on by Ferguttion, after playing the bowling with uomidenee. Finally Johnson and MacLaren succeeded in rolieving the game to some ex- tent, a.nd Johnson bomg skilfully caught, the innings closed for 12b. Perrm took seven wickets for an average of four runs apiece. Cardiff, however, had placed a powerful batting team in the held—E. E. Hill and Gowa.n Clarke were a couple of the members —<Lri-a it seemed a certainty for them. Xovertheless, with the bowling of MacLaneai and Humphreys, aaid later Jolmston. and .mart heM.ng by iiorspool, who caught Col- ley off Johnston's third ba.U, and sma.rtly stumpsd Haines off MacLareoi, there seemed faialy decent prospects of an ultimate win, Clarke and Hill only notched ten runs in half an hour. Perrin and Ashwell were dj.Grnisi>ed cheaply, and six Cardiff wickets went icr 55. Then Creasy, at finst in com- pany with C'-lley, pulled the match out of the lire by a tine stand. The score mounted steadily, despite frequent changes of bowl- ing. and loud applause greeted the winning hit, which topped SwaJk*a's score. Fei- guosoai went, aft-er liaj-d slogging, and Car- ciifF's innings ultimately closed for 203, Maker declining to bat. The Seconds thus lost their record by 75 runs. Cardiff Firsts atso brought do\ a strong team, but their hopes were disappointed. Cardiff won the toss, and Swansea stairtid batting on a drying wicket at twelve o'clock, Bancroft and E. W. Jones facing the trund- ling of Nash and Poole. Nash's tirst over down to Jones was a maiden, but Bancroft cut Poole's first delivery for four; following with a single, after which Jonas lifted the same bowieir to the leg for three. Twenty runs were signalled in quarter of an hour, after which Jones gave a eomrawhiat hot oliance to Cadogan in the slips: which was not taken. Both batsmen continued to punish Poole, but Nash was by no means so easy b deal with. After thirty kid been l'. lc-graphed. runs came slowly, but. Jones was applauded for a tine stroke to the boundary for a quartette. 'Bancroft followed with a fine cut for four off Poole for whose deliveries he luid been showing a striking penchant. The forty went up at 12.25. The fifty having been registered five min- utes alter, Vernon Hili replaced Poole from the Bryn-noad end. Jones was net hitting out with greater freedom, pretty strokes being a. oouple of fours off Nash and a four and a "triplet" off Hill. At 20 minutes to one, 70 runs were signalled, both batsmen appa-penti- being properly set. Six runs later, however, a tricky ball from Nash came in from .e off, and took Jones' middle stump. Stanley Rees, who has invaririly been responsible for a useful score on the occasion of a Cardiff visit. was the new corner. Bancroft at onoe off-drove Vernon Hill for four, but a few runs later the professional placed a ball to Hill in the slips, which was accurately taken. Bancroft had scored 45— or five runs short, for talent money. H. A. Ellis, the next mnn in, soon got to work, obtaining eight runs from the first three deliveries from Nasi). Stanley Rees then nut Vernon iiill very prettily away to Leg for a couple. At five minutes to one the hundred went up, Rees immediately showing his appreciation by placing Nash to the boundajy for four. Two runs lartt>r the same batsman was out 1. b. w to Nash. J. G. Ardaseer joined Ellis. The latter bats- man cut and drove Bemon Hill for a couple of fours. In the next over Ellis lifted Nash to the Mumbles Road boundary for four, and then 120 went up. Anot,her change of bowl- ing was now effected Cullimore going on in- stead of Nash, and Poole resuming from the pavilion end. A minute or two remained for the luncheon interval, when Cullimore gave wav to Whittington. but the same bats- men were together at hall-past one. r,,?\>0€^e now shared the bawling. Ellis and Ardafieer continued together a.nd the score gradually crept up to 190. At this stage Ellis lifted a ball from Nash into the long field to Cording who brought off a very nice catch, Ellis being thereby dismissed after he had compiled 77. The retiring- bats- man was accorded a general round of ap- plause. His hits included fourteen fours. Dr. Cameron joined Ardaseer, and 200 was i*ignailled at 2.55. Ardaseer then cut Nash for a boundary four. Hill again went on at 210. and Arddsaer, who continued to play prsttv cricket, at- once snicked him far a single and four. There were a few (short, runs after this, but eventually Ardaseer let out at Hill, and Cording brought off another great catch, again in the long field. A. W. Samuel was the next batsman. The Swan- sea skipper's stay was not for long, for after driving Hill for four he skied one to Poole at mid-on, thus being dismissed after scoring I six. D. Thiesen joined the doctor, but the latter was tlien bowled by Poole. With Creber as putner, R. W. Woods hit Vernon Hill to leg for four. About ten runs later G. E. Cording effected a brilliant one- hand catch m the slips of Pwle'K WW thus securing Woods dismissal. Gill W.at5 tbe last man in A four by Crober off Poole the 290 going up and tlie same player dtew applause by driving iM for four and snicking him to leg for two. A four then sent up the 300 amid cheers and Swansea declared for 303 for 9. Gajdiff started batting at 4.15, N. Riches v Whit'tington facing the bowling f*1 GilL At. 4-30 *ain began to a }■ the playens retired to t-he pavilraoi, when tito fccoite was 19 for w wicket*. After pIav was resumed, and when Gill had bowled six overs Dr. Cameron was put on, 3Jid the change was immediately effective. One of the doctor's bowls curled into >»lidt- tington's wicket, and the first Cardiff wicket was down for 40 runs at five o'clock. Scor- ing bad been very siow, and there had beeo a short adjournment during a sbower of rain. Tudor Lewis joined Hill, and he and Hill did excellent work m putting a. creditable show on Cardiff's battiug. Mbt-, Howled foror overs in very good form indeed, two being maidens, and in another he took three wic- kets, the ball skied being weitl taken by Ore- ber. Hill's 75 was by no means free from blenwehee. He had ioroed the pace, and tried to score off every ball. He waft missed bv Stanley Rees on the boundary, and aJvo bv Samuel. When stumps were drawn Cardiff had scored 187 for six wicketr.

Cardiff IL y. Swansea II. Swsknsea II, took an unbeaten record wj Cardiff to-day to tackle the home who have also had a remarkably "uccessfu! season up to the present. The visitors were without Pritchard. their fast bowler, who unfortunately crocked, and. on paper, th,, team lacks variety in trundling. The home side were minus a couple of their best bats, owing to defections in the Firsts so that a keen and equal game was anticipated. j 'rls^a w?n toss and Jim Davies and Hill went in on a perfect pitch, Fergu- son and Colley sharing the bowling. Off the former's second ball Davies hit him to the wall and Hill was then missed badly, hitting the ball over the bowler's head-a lucky escape. Runs came very fast, Hill contributing the most and the,30 went up after twenty minutes' play. Hill was then bowled. Humphreys, the new comer, soon got to work, and Colley went on to bowl.
