Mr. E. G. Danger, hou. secretary of the Glamor- ganshire Ornithological Society, sends us a letter further answer to Mr. J. Muir re the Margam Show. He states that the society in -question "have-had the honour to hold the first' Cage-bird First Feather Show ever held in Wales." Bational Sunday Movement.—" An Ex-Cardiff Trade.s' Councilman questions the right of t he Car- diff Trades' Council to resolutions without noti- fication oil matters suell as this, and calls upon the council to fall in with the movement "in the interest of the unemployed Rl1d the public at large. Hcnesty.—"Oft Bit" writes :-Doji't you tlÜnk that the teaching of honesty (in preference^ to religion) in our public schools would be a good thing'? I am one of tfie few (few seemingly) who believe that the "noblest work of God" is an honest man, and, per- haps, such teaching would give our colirtry a gene- ration of honest men.

(Cardiff), writing in reference to the recent accident at this spot, says ;—" It is utterly astonishing that dozens of people do not walk into the water every day.

This, however, will assuredly be the case unless something is done, and that soon," Explosions in Mines.—"An Old Collier" writes: — I have ahays suggested for the information of philanthropists and the good of the collier that to diminish the force of explosions we mu3t ventilate each district of miners with a distinct and separate current of air. Should one of these districts" then fire, the others are safe, and 1 say, in the long run, it will pay and save much life if the old working is properly filled up. In my opinion, this is far better than trusting too much to a patent gauze lanlp or a Welsh inspector.

He suggests that the "trimming" of the sides of the road for some score of miles on which men are kept for mouths could be done away with once and for ever by the entire removal of the strip in question, the same being- thrown on the waste ground between the hazard and the bank. Wang."—The correct spelling- is Korea--the. other is obsolete. The native name of the country is Cho-Sen, which is literally Morning Clllm. It has a king (now a prisoner), his Majesty Li l<iu, but the Chinese Resident ruled the roosS for many years -.a, very able and energetic gentleman llf1.ll1ed Yuen. Seoul is not strictly the name of the, but t-I 0 Korean equivalent for "capital" The. name of the town is Hanyang-the fortress on the Kiver Han. Bat it is next to impossible to give you the correct spelling- of Korean names. Ono place alone is variously known as Fusan, Ptisan, Wonsan (the most correct form), Gensan, and Yneiuan.
