Nothing puts an Englishman out quicker than to Hear a man boasting of himself or of his own achievements. Let others praise you we say-blowing one's own trumpet is put down as brag Now Brag may be a good (log, but Holdfast is better, and HOMOCEA has a fast hold on the British public. And it is the endorsement of the public that has caused thisNew Remedy to spring so rapidly into favour. Our testimonials speak for themselves. TESTIMONIAL FROM THE GREAT AFRICAN EXPLORER, HEXIIY M. STANLEY, .1 I e Dear Sir,—Your ointment called Whitehall, London I HOMOCEA, was found to be the most soothing and efficacious ungent that J could possibly have for my fractured limb, as it seems to retain longer than any other, that oleaginousness so re- qisite for perfect and efficient massage. The fault of embrocations, generally, is that they harden and require warmth, whereas yours, besides being particu- larly aromatic, is as soft as oil. and almost instantly mollifying in the case of severe inflammation.—Yours faithfullv.

Notes and Comments. THE announcement of the death of Mrs Miiller, the wife of the founder of the remarkable work done for poor orphans on Ashley Down, will be received with much regret, and sympathy will be felt for her ven- erable hus"and, who has thus lost a valued helper in his manifold good works. Mr George Muller's first wife died in February, 1870, and he was married to the lady now deceased in November, 1871. She was a Miss Sanger, and had long been acquainted with Mr MUller as a member of the church of which he was pastor. She was keen1 interested in the great institution, the responsibility of which had so long rested upon Mr Muller, and in his missionary travels in all parts of the world- The oneness of their aims in religious and philanthropic work is seen in the Life and Labours of George Muller," written by her. In it she acknowledges that in him God had given her the best and kindest oi husbands. Another book written by her gave an account of Mr Muller's missionaryjtravels, She was well qualified to write on this subject, as she accompanied him on all hit preaching journeys, one of which extended to 37,000 miles. It was shortly after the last tour, which em- braced much travelling in India, that her health began to fail. Paralysis set in, and, in spite of the efforts of Dr Eubulus Williams, and the kind attention from friends, she became slowly worse, and passed away on Sunday. Mrs Muller was 73 years of age-

[ The Recent Gale, SHIP ASHORE AT SULLY. On Saturday afternoon last, Ml F. Luen, the Taff Vale Railway stationmaster at Sullv, telephoned to Penarth that the small ship of Dundee, was ashore off Sully Island, and, as a heavy north-easter blew at the time and the weather was bitterly cddt her position was one of great peril. The Penarth coastguard promptly came to the rescue, and with j their aid the bo.it was safely got off, and she was able to proceed on her voyage the same night, notwith- standing the fearful snowstorm prevailing. She was bound from Bide ford for Lydney in ballast.

Royal Welsh Ladies' (jhoir. FORTHCOMING CONCERT AT PENARTH. It is with great pleasure we call attention to the grand concert to be given in Andrews' Hall, Penarth, next Wednesday evening, by the justly celebrated Royal Welsh Ladies' Choir. So much has been said and written in favour of this choir that no words of ours are necessary to recommend the forthcoming concert to the patronage of the people of Penarth. Penarthians were honoured in being the first to wel- come them home after their visit to Chicago, and the enthusiasm with which they were then received we -believe will be more than equalled next week. When we last heard them they had not been summoned to appear before her Majesty the Queen, a distinction which very few choirs can boast., but with this addi- tional honour and the ratifying encomiums which have been piled upon them wherever they have gone, the special fund intended to be benefitted by their visit ought to be considerably augmented. The success of this choir was particularly marked in their recent tour in the North. This tour, which lasted from Decem- ber 3 to December 14 inclusive, was under the man- agement of Mr Harrison, of Birmingham, and among the towns visited were Birmingham, Abcde^n, Dundee, Glasgow. Edinburgh, Sunderland, Manches- ter, Liverpool, Sheffield, and Nottingham. The suc- cess of the choir was almost unparalleled, doable encores being received in every town visited, while the audiences were very large aud most enthusiastic. Nothing could be more gratifying than the unani- mous praise bestowed by the press- The Aberdeen. Journal spoke of the rendering of Spanish Gi|>>v as magnificent and iint-urpassable in dramalie force, precision, and unanimity of at lack.' The Dundee Advertiser &aid T e voices are delightfully fresh and vigorous, true in time and tune, and heartlessly ex- prefisive." The rendering of "Men of Ilarlech" evoked the following from the stme raper To those who ha\e been accustomed to old familiar strains, sung or flayed mechanically, the interpreta- tion given by the choir miitjt have come as a revela- tion." The NlJltinyhan Daily Express said Their leception last evening W,,is it magnificent one. Wales, itie land of many sweei singers, has seut forth many brilliant cijoli but none 10 equal that which appeared last evening.' j
<t I Correspondence. ( The Editor does not hold himself responsible for the opinions expressed by Correspondents. THE CHAIRMAN AND J.P. To the Editor of the Penarth Chronicle Sir—I was gratified to see that evidently our new J.P. had not condescended to bemean himself by answering" A Voter. I fully concur with Nemesis," and have had my- self exceptional facilities for testing the manliness and probity of Mr W, L. Morris But what a farce to attempt vindication- That his election to the Bench has provoked only one adverse critic is pregnant tea- | timony of his claims to that honour Seemingly the only reason '-Voter'' advances against Mr Morris is his coming third on the poll. Seeing that the Chairman of the District Council never canvassed, his coming in with onlv a difference of 20 votes between him and the top man was very satisfactory. AH this was the only specific reason alleged, and a lame one, too, Voter," to bolster up his flmsey case, has recourse to scurrility and shamefully malignant aspersions and innuendoes. These are best met with a severe silence, letting actions speak loudei* than words. Mud always shows most on clean linen. But although one, and especially Mr Morris, could afford to pass this Voter by with the contempt he de- serves, yet this unprincipled shyster and whiffet who tries to damn a public man by suggesting dishonesty cannot go unpunished, but will be relentlessly pur- sued by such avengers as Nemesis and QUI VIVE. DESIRABLE ACQUISITIONS, etc. To the Editor of the Penarth Chronicle. Sir,—Now that our local adminislrators have put On their warpaint, permit me to suggest their keeping the following reforms and necessities as frontlets between their eyes :— 1. Seats along the Cliff and additional ones on the Esplanade and elsewhere. 2. Circuit round Penarth. 3. Widening of Esplanade. 4. Removal of stones from the Beach. 5 No donkey raeing along the Esplanade. 6. Letting- Sunday licenses alone. 7 Railway station at Lower Penarth, 8. Recreation ground or grounds. 9. Advertising the place. 10. Granting licenses only to beal people. 11 An Art Gallery and Museum. 12. The realisation of Mr Norris's Utopian idea of reducing the rate to 8d in the X. These various needs and reforms will at once com- mend themselves to our Councillors, who, doubtless, will-make honours easy by each vowing a big vow to carry out: one of the above 12 If any consider Mr Norris's idea an ignis falinis, let him ask a pleeceman. Yours, etc., NOTA BENE. i
