Weekly Notes by Quirkquequip. The Editor does not hold himself responsible for the opinions expressed in these notes. There has this week been in the local papers a wordy war betwixt Nonconformists and Churchmen over the name Catholic and its applicability to Churchmen and Romanists alike. Last week following the memorial one [laying in Stan well Rovd, the Rev. T. Davies, Bethel. Cardiff, at the evening's meeting objected to the word Church being applied to a dissenting place of worship. Chapel, to his mind, was the better name. Another rev gentleman contended that CHURCH was peculiarly appropriate, as its etymology was generaUy assumed to be from the Greek Kuriou oikos (house of God): but this is most improbable, as the word existed its all the Celtic dialects long before the introduction of Greek. No doubt the word means "a circle," for the-places of worship among the German and Celtic nations were always circular. Witness of the cromlechs Of itoDehenge, Avebury, Silbnry Hill, Stanton Drew, etc, the dolmens of Brittany, and of relic shrines of India. (Welsh, eyrch; French, cirque; Scotch, kirk; Greek, kirkos). On the other hand, ehaptl is the chest containing relics or the shrine thereof (Latin, capa). Another etymology is capella (a hat or cope). The kings of France in war carried St Martin's Cope into the field and kept it in the tent as a talisman. The place in Which the cope was kept was called the chapelle, and the keeper thereof the ehaplain. Insensibly, thus the Church steals from the chapel and vice versa. While •11 this quibllling is going on irreligion is rampant. The Church is as ungodly as the Chapel, and there's Just as much internal dissension in t latter as in the formsr, ard about fifty Xtian ways of getting to Heaven. After all it will resolve itself into the religion of doifig DBto others as one would be do&e fcy» After a prolonged absence, Mr Valentine Trayes, looking remarkably well, was seen on the magisterial bench at Penarth last Wednesday morning. En passant why did he wear his hat ? He was the only odd one in this respect- What with a certain colonel's melli- fluous cigar, we may yet see the advent of a church- warden at the Station. 0 « Once more the father ofthè young Morris's (solict- ors) was at his wonted post under the Beaks," the old gentleman being assisted by his son of cricket prowess. By the way this same son successfully applied for a four hourw licence extension at the Penartb Hotel, on the 1 Oth prox. Some may think this is Court influence. Not altogether so. The Penarth Bench invariably errs on the right side, but still is rigidly impartial. Mr Pyman's son was fined 5/- for a bicycle infringe- ment. At the close of the sitting, the Major tendered Sergeant Lewis half-a-sovereign and received 5/- change. Was that discharging young Pyman's obli. gation ? Oh for such a friend! and such a trump:l « Who can withstand lovely woman—all tears ? Not our P.C's. This week's magisterial trio peremp- torily quashed Superindent Giddings and admonishing a "Jarky" actress, diemissod the case against her. 00. The subpoenaing incident, when the two witnesses in a certain case vainly asked where they were going to get their expenses from, is not without a lesson. The writ is so called because the party summoned is bound to appear sub poena centum librorum, under a penalty of j&lOO' The wrinkle is this. One need not answer the subpoena unless actually paid a reasonable sum beforehand One can whistle for it behind-hand. The two, stea, who eat in the pub Ise* Wednesday refusing to come over, as subpooned witnesses, were really within their rights. Ir, however, 1/- or reasonable sum were first tendered them for their time, etc., and they afterwards refused to come, tbeu they were liable to enforcement of the penalty. To* sum up, get your money fii-st when subpoenaed. 00 0 A commercial axiom is Advertise and amoceed.3* Advertising then is synonymous with success* Surely this is not the keystone to affluence 1 A French savant is credited with saying that non-advertising is like winking in the dark. You may know what you are doing, but others don't. Just so. But this is stale. We all know that. Perpend! We can wink in the dark. but can we advertise in the dxrk ? Ask Mr R A Lewis, the Cogan School-master, and he will soon ocularly dmonstrate that his patent Flash Light Advertiser" can fltsh brilliant advertisements at night time, on buildings, walls, trees, and on water. A noticeable and peculiar feature of water advertising is that the letters are not prone but erect. I have for some time suspected that my confrere and towns- man, Mr Lewis, was hatching some contrivance which would startle us sooner or later, but little did I think his fertile ingenuity could conceive and create suoh a commercial desideratum. In this go-ahead fin de Steele 19th century, business men can ill afford to, waste so many hours of darkness. We as the French say, changed all that now, and Itberefo18 heartily congratulate Mr Lewis upon his patent, and. sincerely hope—which I hate no doubt of-that hie "Flash Light Advertiser" will be as vrell known as Pears' Soap and Beecbam's Pills. I shall have more- to say of this anon.
