Fasting Man at Tonypandy. Mons. Victor Beaute, a Swiss, who has attracted considerable attention by his power to abstain from food for extra- ordinary lengths of time, will commence a 31-days' fast at Darter's Wonderland 1, Dunraven Street, Tonypandy, on Satur- day, the 9th inst., at 3 o'clock in the afternoon. He will be confined in a specially built glass panelled room and under constant supervision. The only doorway will bear a distinctive seal, which will only be broken on the occasion of the daily visit of the medical man. Beaute purposes during this lengthy fast to con- sume nothing but Welsh" Hills Soda Water and Lemonade, as supplied by Messrs. Thomas and Evans from their Llwynypia Works. The task is a stupen- dous one, but Beaute has previously accomplished similar feats for varied periods in England and on the Continent. He is by profession a chemist, and adopted fasting in the first place to overcome the inconvenience he had been suffering from excessive corpulency. The doctor's bulletin, recording his condition, will be exhibited each day at the doors.
