——— o hit-Chat. i x A certain gentleman is known to be very partial to Chocolate. He celebrated his birthday this week, and some friends, knowing of his partiality, presented him with a box of fine Chocolates o 0 0 The writer has since wondered if he would get a 0 ox on his birthday, if it was kuown that he was specially fond of this particular kind cf sweet. He fears not, and says lie is not so lucky as. some people. O O O 7 ■ It is not every day, or even every year, that skating can be seen going on in the streets, yet this amusement has been indulged in extensively during the last few day, 000 The Penarth Lodge of the I.O G.T., held their .Quarterly meeting last Wednesday, when the officers for the ensuing quarter were duly elected and installed. 000 The new officers of the Salvation Army (Penarth Corp) are, on the whole," taking v?i-y well, and bid fair to carry on a good work. during their stay in Penarth- 0 0 0 Mr and Mrs Bramwell Booth have been holding most successful meetings in Cardiff this week, under the auspices of the Salvation Army. Many Penarth faces were to bj men at the various meetings, and 1 am glad to note that some of them were also to be Been at the penitent form. 0 0 0 What's in a name ? Charles Kick-t m," is the name of a branch at "Cardiff of the lr.sh National J 4) g ie. It has been said that All men are liars—especially printers." And who can wonder at it when one con- siders what they have to put up with, our staff have this week had the privilege (?) of printing a certain system of Dressmaking and Dresscntting In- struction Books- They now go about boasting of what they know of dressmaking. One making the statement that provided he had the materials he would commence and finish a dress, and would guar- antee perfect fit, and to get himself into the way of plying the iron bar, he has sewn a button on his unmentionables- o o o A letter has reached us giving what is alleged to be quotations from the farewell speech of the late Captain of the local corps of the Salvation Army. As the wrfter does not give his name, we are unable to publish the letter, but we do think, that if the statements theirin contained are correct, steps should be taken to prevent a repition of such remarks to any other audience. We are pleased to say that most of the officers when they have left Penarth, have taken with them the best wishes of the members of the corps and the public, but if what is reported by a corres- pondent is correct there does not appear to have been much love lost between. ,) « 0 0 0 Throughout the week, Mr Cornwell has continued to suppy free dinners to as many as have made ap- plication, there being on Wednesday, no less than 422 pints of soup in addition to a large quantity of bread given away, and on Thursday, about 450 pints of soup. This has again been given at Mr Cornwell's own expense, with the assistance of Air Hayter, who sent a good quantity of bread. It is touching to hear the statements of children and others as they are supplied with their jugs of soup, but the blessings which are heaped on the doner's head, are adequate payme it. We understand that at Cogan and Penarth Board Schools, half penny dinners, consisting of bread and soup. have been supplied daily to the scholars attend- ing the schools. This has been a good work, for the roads have been in such a slippery condition, and the, weather so very cold, as to make it undesireable that children should be exposed more than possible. We hope these kindly efforts to alleviate buffering will be continued until a decided change in the weather takes ■ place.
