GMt-Ghat. BY RAMBLING TOMMY. I spent a da) in Bristol last week. Shortly after my arrival at that city I was asked by a friend whether I had come by the Tory Company's boats or the Liber- als. I sought an explanation, and was informed thn* Messrs- Campbell's boats are kn^wn as the Tory's; and Messrs- Edwards, Ro')er i son and Co's are the Liberals I asked for additional information, but none could I obtain further than that it was thought to have origii ated because of the colours of the inks used in the printing of the bills- Was it not therefore a little surprising to find the Bedminster Libe al Associati a employing one of the Tory boats last Saturday to con- vey the members to Penarth, O 0 0 Two gentlemen proceeded to the Penarth Pier last Monday, intending going to Weston, but so wild were the waves, that only the thought of a trip was suffic- ient for one of them Whilst waitillg for the boat and watching the rocking of those at anchor in the roads. his gentleman became so sick, thn' instead of taking the trip, he was glad to take himself off to his home again. 0 0 0 The waves were tremendous, and bold and brave must have been, those I dies who ventured to cross the briny on such a day. But many did venture, and as one remarked to me after, "bad to pay dearly for their bravado. 0 0 0 I heard a day or two agoa young lady and gentle- man discussing the mos: suitable insc ipiions for "In Memoriam" cards. The gentleman suggested that "Be at peace waa suitable, but the young lady hinted 9, Pe ce at last would Le more appropriate, meaning that after some had gone to rest there would be peace 0 for those left at home. in—■ We'll fight till we die remarked a good old local Tory this week, "and it is only just now we're begin- ing to live." The speaker was a man of about sixty summers. o 0 0 I passed a number of children this week, and it would seem they had taken the election fever for they were singing to the good old tune Tramp, tramp, tramp, the boys are marching," the chorus of a song written and published at the time Mr. Arthur J. W illiatrs was opposed by ir J. T. D. Llewellyn, and which runs as follows :— Vote, vote, vote for Arthur Williams, Raise the Liberal banner high Never mind the Tory screw, For the ballot will shield you, Vote foi conscience and the Tories all dtfy. o e o As those who occasionally indulge in sea trips are aware, camp chairs and stools are provided for the use of passengers. One evening a young lady sat in one of these, and by her side was an empty chair. Pres- ently a young man made as though he would take the chair away to another part of the boat, when he was politely informed that it was engaged. 11 Ofi, I beg pardon," rep'it d the youn- man, but perhaps you will allow me to take erne of it till your fuend comes back and claims it ?'' He sat down by the young lady's side, and was soon engaged in pleasant conver- sation. Strange to relate, no one turned up to claim the seatr and there is every reason to believe that this acquaintance so strangely begun, will ripen into some- thing more than friendship. 0 0 0 A romance! 'Twas on board the ''Lorna Doone" the ether day, thet a certain couple chanced to find themselves They were well on in years, and possibly thought they would like to taste the pleasures of a sea trip before ending life's journey. They bad been strolling round the saloon, and by and bye went down !— ■ 1 —— to the fore deck. They had been here but a few minutes when they looked over the rail. An agon- ised wail escaped her lips she clutched her husband by the arm, and moaned "The—ship—is—sinking/' He stood aghast, not understanding, whilst the people, to all appearances, were as gay as though it were a wedding day, See—how—low—we—are—down -in-the--water ? she continued, and commanded her spouse to look over the raiL He looked, but could see nothing to cause alarm. We—were—not so—low—down—as—that—just—now," she blurted out. An idea occurred to him, and he laughed. At last he persuaded his wife to ascend to the saloon, and told her to look over the rail. She did so, and a sigh of the greatest relief escaped her. She had for- gotten having gone downstairs to the foredeck, and the result was when see found herself nearer the water, she thought the boat was sinking. tD 0 0 0 0 These are just a few of the scenes and incidents which I have seen and heard on these pleasure trips. Heaps of others I could tell. but those above are enough to show that there is plenty of amusement to be found on board which adds to the pleasure of tha trip Go once and you will be sure to want to gO again. 0 0 0 It was not very cold last Sunday evening, never- theless a few snowflakes were about, and even managed to penetrate into Andrews' Hall. 0 0 0 I hear now that the Thistles" C.C. does not possess a W. G. Grace at an but one of the players making a duck did not wish his rightful name to appear, but it turns out he would prefer that to the remark that he was a dts-grace- I have been farther told that he is a bit of a hid in some of his ways, 0 0 0 The Stanwell Road Baptists are now in full swing with the building of their new qjhapel.
