That very enterprising- weekly, Great Thoughts," whiell has ueen giving a railway insurance coupon for a long .time past, has now gone one better than any of its rivals in the matter of insurance. By the coupon pubhshed this, week anyone may, by simply signing their name upon the" Great Thoughts'' In- surance Coupon, insure themselves for X2,000 against accidents while traveliing in railway trains, cabs, 'buses, or steamboats cr, if a twelve months' sub- scription is paid in advance, either to the publisher or to the subscriber's local newsagent, and the receipt registered at Great Thoughts" office, it is not neces- sary for such subscriber to sign the coupon at all, wh ch obviates the possibility of the Insurance Com- par y invalidating the insurance through lack of the owner's signature.

The New Woman has caught the fever. 0 0 0 The widening of the parish road proceedeth apace, and the Estate is also forming new roads in the vicinity. A twelve-months will quite metamorphose that locality, as the much-talked-of (railway station near the golf ground is past its embryonic stage. The pleasant function at the Penarth Mercantile Marine Office last week, when two sailors were each presented with a suitable memento of their gallantry in saving life at sea under circumstances of imminent danger to their own lives, bears a lesson, and it is to be hoped it will not be lost on our seafaring population, in the interests of which these presentations were made. Generally speaking there is not a finer and pluckier set of men in the world than British tars. Inured to danger from their bovhocd, they will face all risks, and the instances of their refusing assistance to a fellow being, be the circumstances what they may. are vocy mre. Seafaring life from its very nature affords excellent opportunities for the display of presence of mind and courage in their highest form. So frequently, indeed do these opportunities come in the sailor's way, that the public bear of but a very small proportion of the noble deeds which pass into oblivion. Perhaps Jack looks upon these occurences at sea as commonplace enough, else he would appre- ciate more the tangible recognition, of his deeds and not, as it is alledged, do the same as one of the last recipients of a watch, sell it for XS. <? 0 0 The apple, clandestinely obtained of course, has bad a peculiar allurement to the genus boy. Who in his school days has not robbed an orchard ? The apple has been truly termed "The King of Fruits," and ;ts medicinal properties are invaluable. Generally speaking in each 100 parts the apple, upon careful analysis, contains:—nitrogenous matter 0-44, colour- ing matter 0-10 lignine 1-40; gum 3-45; sugar 11G50; malic acid 1-10; lime 0 01 water 77 00. In these days of Free Education every schoolboy knows this fact. He knows, too-can it be intuitively ?— that it is full of vegetable acids and antiseptics, that it isan enemy to jaundice, indigestion and that dreaded member of the human system, a torpid liver. He reads that it is a gentle spur and tonic to the whole biliary system, and he knows he's overworked and crammed. He reads that it is full of mucilage and sugar which makes it highly nutritious. He knows it is the grandest fruit that ripens under the sun. lie knows, ay, he knows everything about its wholesome- ness and toolhsoriieness and is it then surprising that viewing the bewitching fruit, full to bursting of stored-up richness in the ripening sun, he iightiy treats barbed wire, spiked fences, or even a dog, and -gets it. What he may get afterwards he heeds not. But Nemesis is unrelenting- and before the Bench he is hauled. The last local batch comprised 8. Four of them were dismissed, the others were fined] j- each. Lucky young dogs to live in Penarth! This week the I Llandaff Beaks imposed a penalty of ten shillings on several predatory youngsters who had stolen two- pennyworth of apples. A Manchester gentlemen who is spending his holidays with his two dogs in Mauxland, has this week found out what most of us never knew before, that the Isle of Man is not part of Great Britain. Such ¡ is the dictum of two of Mona's magistrates who fiiied this holiday seeker for not having an Isle of Man I license for his dogs besides an Eaglish one. As a I point of constitutional law Man i,e the Isle, is not part of Great Britain. It is aa ancient Kingdom, but a Britisk dominion. In many respects Mona's Isle laws make life worth living. There the income-tax man is unknown, and a poor law is undreamt of. There, too, anf one can practice as a chemist without passing an examination, the consequence being that the plucked ones from Great Britain invariably gravi tate towards Man. The Statute Book in the House of Keys Hhs no penal enactments against perjury. 0 0 0 A wire was received in Penarth on Wednesday afternoon to the effect that Mr Crossling bad taken the two first prizes for roses at the Shrewsbury Show. We congratulate our enterprising townsman.
