BANGOR NOTES. 'I I went to the Rink last Wednesday week to see Mr Parry's picture, "The Sermon on the Mount." I happened to be rather early, but notwithstanding I was admitted, together with another gentleman, to have a private view." When the time for opening arrived, Mr Parry ordered the doors to be thrown open and the public admitted. This I order waa duly executed, and in rushed the British public, in the shape of 11 small boys (very small), one girl,- item, basket, item, stray dog. All this I observed from a far off corner, whither I had gone to avoid the crush. The 11 small boys, 1 girl, 1 dog, all struck for a single row of benches placed about half-a-dozen yards ifrom the fixture, to prevent the public going too I near. The British public having pecured seats, sat down quietly and calmly awaited the develop- ment of events. For fully ten minutes they &at still, geziug vacantly here and there, but it soon became too much for them. I bad my eye on one lad, who I could see was just about to burst if not relieved by something, Shaking off his good behaviour, he snatched a cap off the head nearest him, looked aearehingly into it, but finding no- thing there to satisfy him, he kicked it con- temptuously across the room. I really believe those lads thought they had come to witness a show of some kind. One youngster stole cautiously up to the picture and tried to lift it. as if anxious to see how matters were going on behind. The picture w-M hung something like a drop curtain, and if She subjeet had been a different one I could have excused the lad. I was much amused by one whiskey smelling individual. stealing up behind us he remarked, Splendid, isn't it? Just; trbe picture I have in my Family Bible." Directing my friend's attention to the figure of a child in the foreground, he said, Isn't that chili lovely Ah returned my frirnd, there certainly is something to look at in that child Phil cannot be beaten at vague replies. The person with the hoarse whisky voice next proceeded to estc5 some other point, but when be was given a quiet hint that he was extolling a fault, he replied in a stage whisper, ThaDka, thanks, I uideastand—' a miss is aa good as a mule to a blind wink." • • There has been much talk among the poor law guardians lately of cutting down tae expense and of appointing an officer to inquire into out-door relief. On Wednesday last I think Mr Bulkeley Price struck the- rail on the head. or at least tried to, and I was glad to see Mr Lewis (Garth- erwen) support him. Application was made by a woman who was formerly in receipt of 6d per week far further out-relief. It seems her allowance was stopped as-sho was addicted to drinking. It was well known that the money she had been re- ceiving all went for drink, and yet on Wednesday a majority of the guardians decided to allow her 3s per week Some of her friends promised to see that the money was not abused, but it is a most difficult matter to prevent anyone from drinking who is bent on drinking. It would have been far better to detain the woman in the house, where she would ha"re no temptation, and besides, thi3 would prevent any more scandal in the way of misapplied relief. m » Notable fact! The windows at the Post Office have been cleaned at last, and the clock taken out of the hene; one is able now to ascertain the time definitely. 0 o The Normal College Glee Party gave their assistance at a miscellaneous entertainment at the Baptist Chapel on Tuesday evening last. They do not quite come up to the glee party of last year.
