Weekly Notes by Quirkpepip. The Editor does not hold himself responsible for the opinions expressed in these notes. Whit-Sunday, or White Sunday. has now quite lost its ecclesiastical meaning- In the primitive Church the newly-baptised wore white from Easter to Pente- cost, and were called albati (white robed). The last of the Sundays, which was also the chief festival,was called emphatically Dominica in Albis (Sunday the white)- ooo One of the interesting etymologies of this word is wit or wisdom Sunday, the day when the Apostles were filled with wisdom by the Holy Ghost The spirit of this derivation has always been most pronounced in the Church on Whit-Sunday. 0 0 0 School boys in my days] were staunchly loyal in their own peculiar way. This used to be shown once a year in the month of May, and on tha 29th day. That date is memorable as being the birthday of the C, C,iw- (,,rry monarch" Charles II. It was in the month of September that the fugitive Prince concealed him- self in an umbrageous oak in Boscobel Wood, and whilst there heard the Roundheads below say what they would do if they could only catch '-that rascal." Charles II. subsequently secured the ancestral crown, and on his entry, in 1666, into London on his natal- day, the Royalists displayed a branch of onk in allu- sion to his once being (i up a tree-" Whether my old school-fellows perpetuated this custom through unconscious loyalty, despite the epitaph which was chalked on the "vicious" monarch's bedroom ;— Here lies our sovereign lord.- the King, I Whose word no man relies on Who never said a foolish thing,' And never did a wise one," or whether hero worship over the oak business steps in, it is difficult to determine. Passing strange is it that loyal Wales keeps up the custom. o n n I am sure it would be a great boon to many were the local governing authority to affix a finger-post on the Bray's lamp opposite the Landsdown, showing the direction of the Cardiff-road- Many lose the last train, and hsve therefore to foot it, and oft times many an unnecessary mile through mis-direction, wilful and an unnecessary mile through mis-direction, wilful and otherwise, etc., etc,
—————- Ojiginal Poetry. THE PENITENTS PRAYER. Oh God of heaven to Thee, to Thee- The Three in One oh, mystery- To Thee above, oh Deity, To Thee I call, of Thee I ask, Whilst in Thy gracious smile I bask; I cry in faith, oh, answer now, Whilst beads of grief bedew my brow. My struggling soul cries out in pain, And shall it cry, and cry in vain ? Ob, no the promises of heaven Are waiting to be asked and given. Oh, Father most beloved name! In mercy Thou my spirit tame; And of Thy nature give me part, Renew my soul and change my heart; Oh, Thou, that watchest every tear, Oh, let me feel that Thou art near. It cannot be, as some foretell, Immortal souls shall live in hell, And void of hope. Oh, can it be That this is Thy eternity ? When I was but a little child They taught me Thou wert meek and mild; They spoke of Thee as crucified, How soldiers pierced Thy holy side, And to the thief upon the tree, Said, ,l Thou in paradise shall be." Oh, God the maddening thought, the doubt, Shall he be in and I be out; In mercy, Father, give a sign, That my immortal soul is Thine. Penarth. D. T. MORRIS.
The Cogan School Board Spend a Pleasant Afternoon. On Saturday last, the members of the Cogan School Board, together with the master of the Cogan Schools, Mr R. A. Lewis, spent a very pleasant time together. At the invitation of the genial Chairman of the Board, W. L. Morris,Esq., the party left Cogan in a carriage and pair for a drive through the country district. At Wenvoe the party halted, and, with Mr J. p. Proud as pilot, visited the Castle and grounds then, after a very enjoyable drive through Porth- kerry Park, the party proceeded to the Ship Hotel, Barry, where they were catered for by Miss Lester in her best style, and ample justice was done to the splendid repast, Under the direction of the Rev F. E. Williams, M.A., rector of Llandough, the party visited the Priory at Barry, and were shown over the institution, which is doing splendid work for the sailors. A short concert was improvised under the leadership of Mr J. F. Proud, with Mr R. A. Lewis at the piano, which the sailors heartily enjoyed. The good fathers in charge heartily thanked the mem- bers of the Board for their visit and a little assist- ance. The party drove back along the dock side and through Sully, reaching Penarth about 9 p.m. The outing was thoroughly enjoyed; and hearty thanks were given to Mr Morris for his great kind- ness. As at present constituted, the Cogan School Board consists of W. L, Morris, Bsq, J.P. (chair- man), District Councillor Pavey (vice-chairman), Rev F. E. Williams, M.A., and Messrs J. F. Proud and E, Bi Riley.

I Correspondence. I THE FORWARD MOVEMENT. To the Editor of the Penarth Chronicle. Sir,It is with deep regret that I have to inform the people of Penarth, through the columns of your paper, of the discontinuance of the Mission formerly 0 irried on under the auspices of the Cardiff Presby- terian 14orward Movement owing to the committee being quite unable to secure a suitable site for build- ing, and the heavy expense which would be involved by the buying out of property for that purpose; Every effort was made by the Movement to continue the work, and it is with very great reluctance they are compelled by exigencies of the case to withdraw from this place at the same time they feel it is per- fectly useless to think of continuing the Mission under present arrangements, as we were only able to get Andrews' Lesser Hall on Sundays. In order to ensure success, however, it was necessary to have a place were service could be held every evening this we failed to get, and this fact, together with the rea- son before alluded to, led the Committee to give up the Centre hero- I am glad to say that, notwithstanding our great difficulties in the past, we have made some progress: We had a Church of about 37 and 100 hearers on an average. Some branches of the work were particu- larly healthy, especially our Young People's Meeting, and the Mission Band,. *1 may state, too, that the little Church has been in- vited by the Rev. J. M. Saunders, on behalf of his Church, to join the friends at the Presbyterian Chapel, Plassey-street, and that it has been decided by my people to accept the invitation. Consequently, after next Sunday they will throw in their lot with that people. With personal thanks to the public for past sympathy, I am, &c., HENRY HARDING. Penarth, May 29th, 1895.

Presbyterian Church. Last Sunday week the anniversary services of the above place of worship were held, J following which was a week's mission, which was concluded last Sun- day night, the preacher being the Rev W« Ross, of Glasgow- Seldom has Penarth had the privilege or listening to so able a man. Those who did not avail themselves of the opportunity of hearing Mr Ross missed a real treat. His discourses were delivered in a quiei. and graceful manner. Sermons so full of real interesting religious matter are seldom heard. Tha Presbyterian friends liked him exceedingly, and it was with great regret to them and to Mr Ross that he; could not stay another week- However, it is to bo hoped that the rev gentleman will be prevailed \];;011 to visit Penarth again on some future occasion.
