--= trREAT surprise was evinced last Sunday at seeing a trolley, laden with boxes, &c., supposed at the time to be a delivery of goods from the railway station, pass through Penarth to Glebe Street, opposite Messrs Stranaghan and Stevens. This has since turned out to be the fittmgs, &c., of the Jungle fehooting Gallery, Whilst we strongly denounce t"1 this desecration of the Sabbath, we must also raise a protest against such a nuisance being allowed to exist in this part of the town, and we feel that those responsible for the letting of the premises should be 'ery strongly censured- Have the police any con- trol over such places ? or have they the power, if a Nuisance is caused, to order its removal ? We know XLot. This power, however, they have, if any persons block the thoroughfare, to order them to move on, and we sincerely hope they will use this power, and insist upon the thoroughfare being kept perfectly clear, and then we may rest assured the proprietors of the Jungle will soon pack up their traps and t) depart to other pastures. It is a shame that re Spectable tradespeople should be insulted by having such an intolerable nuisance forced upon them, and We hope every legitimate means will be employed t-11 to clear it from its present position

MUSICAL AND LITERARY ENTERTAINMENT- On Wednesday evening, in aid of the funds of the Windsor Road Congregational Sunday School, a Blusical and literary entertainment was given in the Schoolroom- The pastor of the church, the Rev J.

In Audition to the items already mentioned, much amuse- ment was created by the ferformance of a couple of "timorous sketches.

Ann—Miss Emily Griffiths, Beisy—Miss Elsie Pike, p'iza—Miss Fanny Court, and Sarah—Miss Nellie oliard, (domestics applying for the situation); Mary (under notice of dismissal), Miss Cicely Pike. These young ladies must have studied well then parts, for they were all faultlessly performed. The Penarth 'w'onide was introduced, as being the paper in which Irs Prim advertised for a servant. The second sketch ^presented a Mock Parliament. The questions before ouse was a Women's rights and Women's wrongs."

PenarttTs Prima Donna at the Hymeneal Altar. Brightly shone the sun on Monday morning last, when the marriage of Miss Emily Francis, 2, Ivy Street, with Mr Frederick Daniel Mules, of Hickman Road, was solemnised in the Arcot Street Wesleyan Chapel The ceremony was timed to take place at 11-30, but by 9.30 it became evident to the residents of Arcot Street, that something out of the usual run of events was taking place, for at that early hour, a number of people began to make their way to the chapel under the impression that the wedding was to take place at 10 o'clock. A few minutes after 11 the first carriage arrived, and the others came in rapid succession, bearing altogether 27 guests, in addition to the bride and bridegroom- The bride was accom- panied by her two bridesmaids, Miss Maggie John and Miss Florrie Mules. Mr Frank Mules acted as best man, 'and the bride was given away by her brother, Mr David Francis. Prior to the commence- ment of the ceremony, and during the time the guests were arriving Professor G. C. Howell performed Scotscn Clark's Fetal and" Inauguration Marches. As soon as the bride arrived, the people crowded into the chapel, and the proceedings com- menced by the singing of the hymn The voice that breathed o'er Eden." The first part of the wedding service was read by the Rev W. G. Williams, (of the Welsh Independent Chapel), the remainder of the ceremony being performed by the Rev J. D. Stevens (Wesleyan). After the signing of the register the newly married couple left the sacred building, amid showers of rice, the organ paaling forth Mendelssohn's Wedding March." The bride was attired in a dove grey costume, with white silk trimmings and pearls, her hat being of cream felt, trimmed with cream velvet and tips. She carried a beautiful bouquet of white flowers, as did also the bridesmaids, who wore electric blue costumes, trimmed with white velvet and black lace, their hats being black, relieved with white velvet and snowdrops. The bride and bridesmaids also wore gold bracelets, the gifts of the bridegroom. After the wedding ceremony a reception was held at Llwyn yr Eos, the rasidence of the bride's parents, which was presided over by the Rev W. G. Williams After refreshments had been partaken of, and the ceremony of cutting the wedding cake had been duly performed, the chairman proposed The health of the bride and bride-rooni," wishing them every ioy, happiness and long life.

A.root Strc3t Wesleyan Baad of Hope. A very interest lug entertainment on behalf of Dr ^tephenson's Home, was given by the above, on Wednesday last, in the Wesleyan Schoolroom- The drum and fife band discoursed some very good music, The Hunt Song being a credit to the band and to its able leader Mr Coney. It is to be hoped the band will favour its hearers by giving "The Hunt Song again, at some not far distant date. The violin solo by Mr Meazey, received a well deserved encore, and Mr Alfred Mayne gave his recitation" Halfway Doin's (in dialect) in his well know;) able style.

The March" Lion." PEOPLE PANIC STRfCKEN. TREES UPROOTED AND SHOWERS OF TILES. On Sunday last the March "liou had a fine old- time of it. The gale which wrought such terrible havoc in some parts of the county had it's full fling, also in our little town, but fortunately the damage done was not of a very serious nature. Chimney pots- and iiles were, however, taken away in many places* and a couple of houses in Windsor Road, almost had their roofs carried away. A huge tree in Stan well-• Road, was uprooted, levelling the boundary wall, and falling across the road smashed the wooden railings which fence in the quarry opposite the Council offices. A young man pasing only a moment before noticed the stones of the paving baing lifted as ho walked over them, and had only gone about twenty yards when the tree fell- Some men employed by the Esta 3 were soon summoned to the spot, and they at once cut the tree up so as lJ prevent traffic being interfered with. At the Congregational Chapel Windsor Road, a portion of the iron roof was carried away, and the noise as those sheets flapped to a-id fro before being wrenched quite off can b better imagined than descried. The people at en ling service were panic stricken, and though an effort was mada to conclude the service in an orderly manner, it was useless, for during the singing of a hymn there was such a terrible rattle and noise, that the people, fear- ing the building was coming down, made a stampede, leaving the chapel for home as soon as possible, wish faces as white as a sheet." The Trinity Wesleyan chapel was but little better off. Here the Rev. J. D. Stevens tried to proceed with his discourse, but he, like the members of the congregation, became terribly alarmed, and suddenly closed the Bible saying, We will go home. Messrs Escott and Ford secured the loose sheets of iron on the roof of the Congregational Church during the afternoon, and the evening service was held as usual.
Panarth Nonconformist Churches' Rjlief Fund. A committee meeting in connection with the abova 0 relief fund was held on Monday afternoon at tbo Plassey Street Baptist Chapel, the Rev J. J>. Sfevens- presiding. The minutes of the last meeting having, been read and confirmed, the treasurer (Air. J. \V. Mavne), presented his statement of accounts (which had bsen duly audited and found correct by Messrs I Evan Jones and E. Seagrave), and which showed a balance in hand of £21 10s. lid., but as there are a few small accounts unpaid, it was resolved that a notice be placed in the two local papers asking the tradesmen to send in their bills by Tuesday next, and the balance afterwards placed in the London and Provincial Bank, Penarth, on deposit in the names of the Treasurer and Secretary, for further use when required by a Committee dulr elected from the different Nonconformist Churches, and that a state- ment of the accounts be published in the IochI papers in the following week. It was resolved that a hearty vote of thai-lis be given to the general public who so nobiv responded to the appeal for funds to the ladies for "the s^endid manner in which they carried out the severcd duties allotted to them; to the chairman, mena committee, treasurer and secretary; also to the memi-rs of the Plassey Street English Baptist Church for the uss of their premises for carrying out the work. The meeting was closed by the sin^iu^ of the- Doxology, and prayer by the Rev I. 0. Stalberjr-
