ST. DAVID'S. * ' '


ST. DAVID'S. In the Cathedral City there is a, Free Reading Room, which is much frequented by lads and lasses from the board school. These young people take a deep interest in politics, and the other day one of them, a lad 13 or 14 years of age, who had just been apprenticed to a certain trade, went to the Reading lioom as usual, when there happened to be a Conservative working man present. The working man, on look- ing over the papers, had found something which highly amused him, and which turned out to be a cartoon representing i Lord Salisbury and Mr Chamberlain as dogs attacking Mr Gladstone, and so pleased. as the man that he called to the lad which took adverse views on policies— Come here George; what do you think of this ? Is it not good now ? Don't they give it to him ? Well done, &c." Young George looked at the cartoon and very coolly turned the tabies on his opponent by saying, "This just proves what I have always been telling you, that none but dogs would ,ever think of attacking the Grand Old Man."—Com, ST.
