Penarth Boat Club. 't. RACE FOR THE CUP. On Saturday afternoon, under favourable circum- stances, the first of a series of six sailing races it is intended to hold during the present season came off. The course was from the Penarth Boat House to the East Cardiff and West Cardiff buoys and home, a distance of eight knots. There was a large attend- ance. A start was made at 3.30..A number of members of the club and their friends followed the race on the Iona, placed at their disposal by the Penarth Steam Ferry Company, Cardiff. The boats which entered were as follows:-New Moon, belong- ing to Mr Shephard and sailed by Mr Ashford; Bar- bet, owned and sailed by Mr Milburn; Wytangi, sailed and owned by Mr Roger Batchelor; Thoine, sailed and owned by Mr Mason May, sailed and owned by Mr Morel; Querida, sailed and owned by Mr Flint; aDd Assegi,sailed and owned by Mr Hodge. Mr H. J. Vellacott, the commodore of the club,acted as starter. On the way to the East Cardiff Buoy the Barbet took a long lead, and the boats arrived at the spot as follows:— II. M. S. Barbet. 4 20 10 Thorne 5 22 0 Qaerida 4 22 ]5 May 4 22 25 New MOOIJ 4 29 50 Assegi; 4 31 0 Wytangi 4: 31 30 After passing the buoy, the last-named boat dropped out of the race, and the Barbet still led. In making for the West Buoy, however, this boat lost some of her lead by going too far down before com- ing about: but, notwithstanding this incident, she maintained her supremacy. On getting past the West Buoy the Thorne got ahead of the Querida, and began rapidly to outrun the Barbet. The times at this were as follows :— H. M. S. Barbet. 4 58 30 Thorne 0 0 30 Querida 5 0 45 May 5 9 0 Confined to the four above-mentioned boats, a fine race was run home. Very soon after the restart the Barbet was overtaken by the Thorne, and when withm about a quarter of a mile from the mark boat, the Thorne by clever tactics got the windward of her rival, and this took the wind out of her sails. This manoeuvre was instrumental in gaining the victory, and amidst cheering she passed the mark boat, fol- lowed soma 200 yards by the Barbet. The boats finished in the folIo wing order :— H. M. S. Thorne 5 26 10 Barbet 5 26 32 Querida 5 27 30 New Moon ,5 49 0 Assegi 5 5 0 The other boats did not complete the course. lae arrangements, in the hands of Mr H- J. Vell- cott and Mr I-la,-vy, the saibng secretary, were all f. j?0" 0 desired, the event passing off in a highly satisfactory manner.

Whitsuntide Holidays. Pleasure seekers had a grand time of it on Mon- day and Tuesday last, the weather being all that could be desired, and, judging from the immense influx of visitors to our town, it would seem as though all the world had given itself up to the enjoyment of the holiday. It has bee a computed that not less than forty thousand persons visited Penarth either by road, rail, or sea. During the afternoon and evening the town seemed thronged with excursionists, whilst the Esplanade and Cliffs have rarely presented such an animated scene. Most of the Sunday Schools held their annual treats, but on account of the uncer- tainty of the weather at this season of the year, Trinity Wesleyan, the Welsh Baptists, and Stanwell- road Baptist Schools hold their annual outing later in the summer. CHURCH SCHOOLS. Among the first to lead the way was the Church schools, numbering over 600, headed by the Lads' Brigade and band, under "Captain" T. S. Lloyd. ( Arriving at Lower Penarth, they gave themselves up to jollity, the pleasure being heightened by Mr T. S. Lloyd organising sports and distributing prizes. LLANDOUGH AND COGAN CHURCH SUNDAY SCHOOLS. At 11 o'clock the scholars attending these schools, numbering nearly 400, assembled at Cogan New Church, where the Holy Eucharist was chorally cele- brated, the celebrant being the Rector (Rev. F. E. Williams), assisted by Rev. G. W. H. Crattenden. They re-assembled at two in Cogan Mission Room, and marched to Erw'i Delyn, the residence of Mr T. R. Thompson. Here the usual games and sports were indulged in, swings and an Aunt Sally causing much amusement. Later a sumptuous tea was par- taken of, which was provided at the sole expense of Mr and Mr3 Thompson. For many years past Mr and Mrs Thompson have given an annual treat to the children of these parishes, and for some months before-hand tbe children begin to look forward to their pleasant onting. More games followed, and to- wards the close of the evenino, three cheers were given by the children for their kind entertainers, and a dis- tribution of buns and sweets brought a very happy day to a close. Mr and Mrs T. R. Thompson have now been for many years munificent supporters of the various organisations in these parishes. ARCOT STREET WESLEYAN. Headed by their drum and fife band, the scholars of this school, with their teachers, marched to a field at the lower end of Plymouth-road, where tea was provided, and a variety of sports were indulged in. The heavy shower about five o'clock somewhat marred the pleasure of the tea, but this was soon forgotten when the clouds had rolled by." During the even- ing the band played a selection of music. TABERNACLE BAPTIST. The young people connected with this school, with their friends, to the number of about 500, partook of tea in Andrews' large hall, and afterwards adjourned to the bottle field, kindly lent by David Morgan, Esq,,for sports. The usual al fresco amusements were heartily indulged in by tbe youngsters. A shower of rain about 8 o'clock made it advisable to leave the field, and the senior scholars returned to the hall for further games. On Whit-Tuesday, as is the usual custom* the teachers and senior scholars visited Sully, and spent a most delightful afternoon and evening. 0 COGAN METHODISTS. The children of this school, numbering over 200, were conveyed to Lavernock by train, leaving Penarth Dock Station about one o'clock. The tea was provided by Mr Lamperd, of Cogan, and gave the greatest satisfaction. The usual games—cricket, football, rounders, racing, &c., were heartily in- dulged in by young and old. Tbe friends desire to make special note of the kindness of Mrs Hughes, Cogan, who sent an abundant supply of oranges, sweets, and nuts for the children. During the after- noon several groups of the scholars and officers were photographed by Mr Tanner. PRESBYTERIAN. Accompanied by their brass band, the scholars marched in line to a field at Lower Penarth, kindly lent by Mr Hunter. Here the young people and a number of friends, exceeding 200, partook of a beautiful tea, and entered heartily into the various sports provided. An interesting event took place in the evening. The Rev J. M. Saunders and a few friends went to the house of Mr Hunter, where a brief service was conducted, and Mrs Hunter's baby was christened. CONGREGATIONAL. The teachers and friends, together with the children of this school held their annual treat at Radyr, to which place they were conveyed by special train, which left Penarth Station at 10.30. Arrange- ments had previously been made for the entertain- ment of the visitors at a farmhouse. Ample provi. sion was made—not only in the shape of cake, tea &c., but also in amusements, and the children re-- turned home thoroughly delighted with their day's outing.
Weekly Notes by Quirkqiiepip. The Editor does not hold himself responsible for the opinions expressed in these notes. Major Thornley, J.P., says that oa the day of his youngest daughter's marriage, the local police ar- t. rangements were all that could be desired. This I:zl encomium must, in sooth, be gratifying to Inspector 0 Roberts and Sergt Lewis, for praise from the Majos is praise indeed. • £ 000'' '• Police Sergt.

He was looking down Channel through his field glasses from his drawing-room window in Essendene, when he saw an object which aroused his suspicions. Going upstairs and requisi- tioning his telescope, hejdiscovered that the occupants of the boat had lost one oar and that one of the men was standing in the bow alternately attempting to paddle on the port and starboard. With commendable promptitude be rushed down to the Beach and informed Police-Sergeant Lewis of the mishap. !i„<I there been any sea on, or had a breeze arisen, a difterent tale might have been told of the luckless drapers o Such a powerful telescope does the Major possess that he can, from Marine Parade, see what the Miners are doing on the Flat Holm when at work, and he can even distinguish on a clear day the colours of the ladies'dresses worn at Weston-an per-Mare. 000 It is whispered that a Penarth bachelor will shortly lead to the Hymeneal altar the ward of Mr Steyeas, Penhilh Cardiff. 000 One of Councillor Jotham's hobbies, and a fascinat- ing one to boot, is gardening.

I might write more. I might go on telling you of joys and sorrows, of struggles and victories, of sun- shine and shadow—but I will refrain. If you think it nothing—the soft familiar tread, the rustle of the gown, the music of the bright greeting, the little tap at the door, the dear and natural caress, that for hours of monotonous labour or weary vexation is the desired reward; the sunny face opposite you at breakfast, the cheek which glows with joy when others praise, the feet that run so nimbly to meet you at the door, and the full and tender heart which never fesls shame though others detect its love—I say, if you think all this is nothing and worthless, then turn your back on married life; avoid it, pass by it, turn right away but if, on the other hand, you have faith in love, if ycu believe it still con- tinues to bind the hearts of youth, and that wedlock is the highest and most sanctified life you can live- then, I say to you, "Go thou and do likewise." My task is done. I have led you step by step along the perilous journey I have already taken. You shall judge for yourselves what my feelings are to- night, and whether I am happy or not. I will not tell you. Of the future I have nothing to say. Hitherto thou shalt come and no further. Here I drop the curtain. Adieu «
