MR. NORRIS'S LETTER, To the Editor of thePenarth Chroniele- Sir,—Allow me, as a ratepayer, to thank Mr Norris for the very pertinent questions he submitted to the District Council in his letter to that body last Monday week, and also to express my disgust at the conduct of the members of the Council in not allow- ing the letter to be read. If this is the way the new Council are going to treat the electors, then we shall have to make an effort to find room at the bottom of the poll for them when they again seek our support. I recorded one of my votes in favour of the gentle. man who proposed that the letter lie on the table, but it will be in vain that he should seek my support when next he appeals to the electors. I thank you, Mr Editor, for giving publicity to fcha letter. When the next election comes round I hope Mr Norris will be returned, for then we shall have a man to look after i the interests of the ratepayers, and who will do his duty without fear of offending any clique or party. Yours obediently, A NORTH WARD ELECTOR.
THE MOUNTAIN IN LABOUR- To tlufHditor of the Penarth Chronicle. Such can Mr Norns's recent mighty effort for suehi a small effect be likened. More than this I do not propose saying but with your permission, will give a few of the remarks 1 Inve beard flom gentlemen who have read epirtto. "He must have swallowed a dictionary; which is commg up in undigested lumps. u Should be in the hands of all children-unable to read." I have read "in my time a worse letter-but not much." Au excellent soporific, as well as a sudorific." Replvte with sickening redundancies, vile solecisms, and execrable literary pilferings." Mr Norris is without doubt a Latin scholar, ripe and good. Permit me to commend to him that cel«j- I brated line of Horrace, Partununt mOllte, naecetur ridiculus mus"—the travailing mountain yields a ailly mouse." 44 Mr Norris has apparently no property i» Stan- well Road." Much Ado about Nothing A Daniel, a second Daniel come to judgement I!tl 4j Mr Norris will awake one fine morning and find himself famous." A man of unbounded stomach-and spleen- \Ve hnve been apt to think of Mr Xorris simply in Cl UIPC!I, n with bottles. That incongruous associ- atiODIMUSt' tiow be dispelled, for since his last literary gem, on-, perforce, exehtimb- 1 Whence is thy learning Hath thy toil O'er books consumed the midnight oil ? Mr Norris is like many of his words-obsolete. A little goes a long way." Ought to bJ read gently—and in instalments- u A splendid aperient!—warranted not to gripe. A brutum fulmen-an inocuous fulniinatioii. U Very pretty, frisky and harmless, like Mary's little lamb." Throughout the sneering, jeering and bleering, there runs an awfuly lugubrious melancholy bespeaking j ranking disappointment at receiving the order of The Kick Out' for the District Council. A Kidnapper of other man's brains; a haples# plagiarist. Solomon was wrong when he Liaid there was nothing new under the sun. To any one in quest of: the novel, let him read Mr Norris's letter-and then die." ^Mr Norris has eclipsed himself. His last contri- bution wherein he exposed with so ruthless a hand, the rampant robbery from the public funds, is to use his own expression, ne plus ultra, considered on its literary merits. It is a pen picture with chiaroopcuro so snbtly. introduced as to give it a piquancy, second only to Worcestershire Sauce, and will ever be resorted to as a stoie-house by all anxious to shine in the firmament of belles-lettres. May his star never pale, for who could spare this Local Light of Literature. Yours faithfully, A NONPLUSSED RE 1DER.
