Treherbert Tag. A holiday club, called the Dandy Holiday Club," has been inaugurated at Treherbert. The Dandies—as they call themselves-are mostly the members of la,st season's Athletic Cricket Club. N.B.— See dictionary for definition of dandy. Since the Dandies have been going, another holiday club has suddenly sprung up under the name of the Dandy Twenty-Fifth." Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. The following was heard on a tramcar lately: Passenger (excitedly): Hi! Stop Stop! A man has fallen off thg car." Conductor It's all right, guv'nor; he's paid his fare." A modernised maxim:—All's "fair" with tram conductors. Now that the harvest thanksgiving is fairly over, the young people seem to be very keen on starting the sowing again. At any rate, by the way that band (!) of young men sang If I should plant a tiny seed," &c., in Bute Street on Satur- day night, we judge that they were remarkably enthusiastic in voicing their agricultural aspirations. Roller skating at the Treorchy Ambu- lance Hall has been for some time the fashionable craze among the young people at the top of the Valley. We advise all people who are superfluously fat to visit the rink occasionally. It is stated that a young fellow who started rinking last week for the first time, became reduced to a state of liquidity, and was taken home in a bottle (!). Then probably he had many a "spill." Our door is the short cut to economy is what we read in the shop window of the solitary bootmaker of Dunraven Street. "Short cut and "economy" seem to go well together. By the way, if you want a practical illustration of economy, you should notice a, small boy when he has occasion to use the soap. A notorious inebriate, who has now reformed, declares that he is so strictly temperate that it gives him pain even to find his collar tight.
