Pifrt bottles; 4} Sallctt casks, and 2 galloas of wiiisi or spirits. Chose examination, however, educed the fact that Mr Heitzman bad been selling- single bottles of spirits equal to of a gallon- /( x Mr A. Lewis (instructed by Mr Harry.

He should there- fore object on a y. Mr Vachell impuged Ms learned friend's objection, and alleged that the ■■authority cited by Mr Belcher was incorrectly repor- ed, It wasn't a tecnicality it was a precedent. Mr O.

Baaiiih, uogan and llandougli Total Abstinence Federation. INAUGURAL MEETING. GWYNETH V A UGH AN ON WOMEN'S RIGHTS. On Wednesday night, the inaugural meeting of the aew local temperance organization, known as the «*' Penorth, Cogau and Llandough Total Abstinence Fedeiatiou," was held in Andrews' large hall. Although the evening was terribly hct, and altogether unsuitsd fcr indoor gatherings, yet the hall was about two-ililrl-t's full. The chair was taken by Professor Powd, President of the Federation, and he was supported on the platform by MrsGwyneth Vaughan,' who is a red hot member of the B.W.T.A., (London), Mrs Phillips (Cardiff). Mr S. Stanton (Bridgewater), Mr T. A. Hillier (Bath), Rev 1. 0. Stalberg, Rev J. M. Saunders, Mr \V. B. Shepherd, Mr James (Hon. "Federation), Mr Loverdge, Mr W. Jones Thomas ■f Hon. Sec. of the Federation), and Mr J- F. Pick ford, whilst the orehes ra was occupied by the. Federation f-), r I (Bon. Sec. of the Federation), and Mr J. P. Pickford, The meeting commenced with the singing of the n hymn "To the WOl k to the work," and prayer by the Rev I 0 Stalberg. The choir next rendered very effectively "Shall you, bbaU I." The Chairman's address followed, the speaker giving .& de:ailed statement of the aims and objects of the Federation. Mr Slant H>, of Bridgwater, (one of the agents of --tihe 'fenin-riuoe League) said there was a great deal of no,). t-" al,lied about the temperance question. "It was to b regretted that after sixty years and more work there should be so much error and misuuder- standing-existing. He believed there was a very important work to be done in connection with the Bands of Hope, He believed the ignorance which prevailed, was due t) the lack of temperance teaching among the young. The speaker then said that drunkenness was not a sin, it was an effect. Sin is ih>. tn mgressioo of the law. People do not consent to become drunkards, but they take the drink, and the sin was in this and not in the effect produced. He did not know exactly what a moderate drinker was-was he judged by the effect produced, or by the quantity taken ? Men were differently constituted —one man might be able to take as much whiskey. and not show signs of it, as would make a dozen others drunk. A man who got drunk was considered a bad man, whereas it was the best of men who were the most easily overcome. Alcohol is a poison, and whether taken in large or small quantities it remained a poison. One grain of Arsenic was as much a poison as a large quantity, it effects, however, was inot, of course, so marked, but each part taken has something to do with the visible effects. A man once said he could take two glasses of beer and not feel its effect, but the third would make him drunk, Thus one and one represented nothing but the two and one made three and was drunkenness. The speaker then went ( on to show scientifically the effects of drink, and coir- ( pared the sick rate of total abstinence societies with those of a general character. Mr T, A, Hillier. of Bath, another Western Tem- perance League agent, spoke at considerable length, first giving details of the work of the League, and then of the duty of the Christian Church with regard to the temperance movement. He saw the new Federation had messages for the Church, the moder- ate drinker, and the drunkard. "Gwyneth Vaughaii" declared that if women bad power to vote they would go in mora! cleanliness alt along the line. Her great hobby was to try to put I men right on the women question- All ought to be greatful to Sir Williana Harcourt for his Local Veto Bill. In it was a great principle, and one which would be gained in spite of Tory opposition- he urged the women present to do all they could to strengthen the arms of their comrades in arms. Tne Reu Tertlus Phillips also bii^lly addressed the During the evening solos were admirably rendered by Miss E. Webb and Miss Watts, and Miss Emily Pearn capitally recited The drunkard's child." Votes oi thauk" to the speakers, Chairman, and all who had assisted were presented, and the Shoir rose to sing" God be with you IVjiessor G. C. Howell presided at the piano.

Original Poetry. '?J;? I'M TEE ONLY ONE THAT'S LEFT TO TELL THE TALE. When I was quite a boy, I was my mother's joy, And of me, my father he was very proud; To learn the golden rule I was sent to school, And when whacked, I shouted pretty loud. When to man's estate I got, I soon went to pot, And all my partners are now lodged in jail. When my business went to smash, I cleared before the crash And I'm the only one that's left to tell the tale. We had been three days at seftj When a storm broke on our lee. It frightened all, the captain and the crew. Midst mingled shouts and prayer, The women tore their hair When the fury of the water broke the screw, We tossed about all night In a fearful plight, To try and save the cargo and the mail. When preparing for the worst, The engine boiler burst; And I'm the only one that's left to tell the tale. Whan the dayhglt came once more, I was two thousand miles from shore, I And the Canard ship Campania on my track. I gave her a farewell look, And soon reached Sandy Hook, By swimming on my chest and on my back. i The cargo it was lost, t In spite of what it cost, But I managed to secure the bags of mail; Of rope I got a taste, And tied them to my waist; And I'm the only one that's lelt to tell the tale, I invented a machine I To supersede all steam, And travel through the clouds up in the air. But the thing began to roil As we sighted the North poie, And on the top a great big Polar Bear. We began to make a drop, When sometbmg went off pop, And the wind did blow a fierce and awful gale; But I was rather cute I jumped in my parachute, And" I'm the only one that's bit to tell the tale. There were two of us you see, The Polar Bear and me Surrounded by the floods of snow and ice. I offered him my hand, He did not understand, For he got me round the body like a vice- I shouted out £ Oh stay" Ta-ra-ra-boom-de-ay He dropped me like a buck and wagged his tail; I got upon his back, For London we made tracks And I'm the only one that's left to tell the tale. I made a full report In the county council court, And they were filled with great delight and praise, My adventures in the air Fairly made them stare, And a monument to me they said they'd raise. Their eyes began to roll, When I pulled out the North Pole And like one man they all turned green and pale. In, the Polar Bear I led, They all dropped down stone dead AnCl I'm the onlv one that's left to tell the tale-, R. P. RUTTER.
