Palace Porth. Mr. H. Armitage introduces Campbell Goldsmid in Mr. Vincent Brown's master- piece, "The Greater Love," at the Palace this week. The caste is an exceedingly fine and powerful one. The drama is founded on the Biblical text, Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friend." It con- tains a deep moral lesson on self-sacrifice, and performed with such brilliant artistes. is well calculated to drive home that lesson into the minds of the audience. Mr. Campbell Goldsmid is a fine exponent of the art- of elocution, and takes the part of "Paul Penfold" with great energy and vigour. Miss Ethel Russell is also a clever young lady with exceptional talent, and presents Sarah Higgs" with faithfulness, and deserves the ap- plause accorded her. Mr. Stanley Bedwell as Jack May" is also very good. Miss Marion Fawcett and Miss Francesca Stricland as Mrs. May and her daugh- ter, Mary," respectively, are charming. Mr. Dennis Bryan as Andrew Isted," and Mr. Algernon J. Hicks as the Rev. Arthur Warren," display talent above the ordinary. Messrs. Wentworth Lawson and Albert Campbell as Constable Drayton" and "Ned Stubbs," are. also good. The drama from beginning to end is full of passion and interest, and keeps the attention of the audience throughout the whole performance. The play deserves the highest approbation of the audience, and the company its heartiest congratu- lations. Patrons of the Palace next week will have the opportunity of witnessing the successful military drama, The Power of the King." This brilliant piece will be presented by Mr. and Mrs. F. G. Kimberley's No. 1 Company. The. story bristles with exciting situations, and interest is maintained at a high pitch from the first scene until the curtain finally drops. The plot deals with mili- tary life and Court intrigues. It tells of a young officer being forced against his will to marry a wicked woman. Of how she plots her Msband's ruin and down- fall, in spite of her great love for him. It also tells of a good and noble King, whose last dying words breathe a prayer to save his people from destruction. The Power of the King is from the pen of Mrs. F. G. Kimberley, and is the finest play ever written by this talented authoress. The company engaged is a strong one, and includes several well- known artistes.
Cardiff Empire- There is probably no more popular turn on the" variety programme with Empire patrons than Bella and Bijou, the well- known Society entertainers, who are due next week at Cardiff Empire. They will give a very pleasing and amusing enter- tainment, that should not be missed. A very pretty musical turn will be given by Olga, Elgar, and Eli Hudson, who specialise in a harmonious combination of the human voice and flute. The Hudsons are all accomplished musicians, and have gained many coveted prizes from the Royal College of Music. Mr. EJi Hudson commenced studying the flute and piccolo at the age of five, and appeared in public at the age of seven and caused a great sensation as a prodigy. Madame Olga is a lady with a perfect soprano voice. She gained the same scholarship at the Royal College of Music as Madame Clara Butt. She made a great name on the concert platform, and has sung at Buckingham Palace State Con- certs. Mdlle. Elgar is" a young lady of fifteen, and is acknowledged to be the I finest girl piccolo player in the world. She has studied since she was three years I old. She is a very beautiful girl, and is also a fine pianist. Other big engagements for the coming week include Ben Albert, the logical comedian; Woodhouse and WelJs, Lon- don's popular comedians and dancers; Verno and Voyce, the favourite singing comedians; Cissie Curlette, mimetic vocalist; the Marconis, electric wonders; Conn and Conrad, the aeronautical come- dians; Mona Vivian, comedienne and dancer; and all the latest Bioscope pic- tares.
The Palace, Cardiff A very fine. bill-of-fare is promised to Cardiff Palace patrons next week. Top- ping the bill are those famous American comedians, Friend and Downing, who were the original Rosenthal and Harrigan- Not Nuts whilst at the bottom we find Warden Reed and Jennie Stevens in an extremely humorous duologue, Mar- ried or Photographed." In Bardoff, the Russian strong boy, we have the world's latest sensation. Bardoff's age is 17, his height 4ft. 6in., whilst he turns the beam at 7st. 71b., and for an eye-opener he will take no little amount of beating. Support- ing the. above is a powerful company of star artistes, including Jeff Martin, the Sisters Williams, in song scena, The Flower Girl" Vesta Nixon, comedienne and dancer; Nellie Neil, the dainty dancer Daisy Hurdle, the fascinating comedienne; and Dene and Dixon, the comedy duo.

A GOOD WAY TO BOTTLE FRUIT. First get some good, strong bottles or potg, next fill the bottles to the neck or shoulder with fruit not quite ripe, which must be perfectly dry. Fill the bottles with clear cold water, place ift a saucepan, of cold water, taking care that the bottles are not allowed to touch each other; put on the fire, and when the bubbles rise freely in the bottles of fruit (in about ten minutes or so), remove from the fire and set them aside, and' when quite cold pour on sufficient pure olive oil to cover the top of the fruit. Tie down with parchment paper, and the fruit will keep for months. When required for use, take care to skim off all the oil, and add sugar when cooking.

Hippodrome, Tonypandy. The" Hippo." this week is the Mecca of the sporting fraternity, the reason therefor being found in the nightly ap- pearance of G. De Relwyskow, light- weight and welter-weight champion wrestler of the world. Mr. Relwyskow has a long record of victories to his credit, many of them having been gained over heavier men than himself. He is ex- ceedingly smart, and uses arms, hands and feet freely. He offers £5 to anyone whom he fails to defeat in 15 minutes. In addition, he offers to meet any boxer- the latter to use his own science, while Relwyskow will endeavour to vanquish his opponent under wrestling rules. There are interesting wrestling bouts nightly, which are followed by a keen and enthu- siastic audience. Other attractions in- clude the Four Mayos, comedy skaters, who not only perform some exceedingly elever feats on skates, but also provide a huge amount of amusement in the operation. Carlo Caie Trio is another popular item on the bill. This includes wire walking, tumbling, and a plentiful supply of business of the knockabout order, which is all received with marked ifavour by the delighted audience. Foy and Staples, the policeman and the maid, present a very pleasant sketch, entitled iS Pinched for Life." The couple also favour with a good song, which is warmly appreciated. Clarice Sefton, speciality dancer; Albert Silverstone, mimic; and Bis Val, the happy Dutchman, are other popular items on a strong bill. The Hipposcope Pictures are as usual, up to the mark, and provide at fund of humour, drama and "thrills."
Workmen's Hall, Ferndale, Occupying the boards at this popular theatre for the last three nights of last week was Mr. J. Bannister Howard's talented company in When Knights Were Bold." Mr. Sam Lysons, in the role of Sir Guy De Vere," was excep- tionally fine, and kept his large "audiences roaring with his whimsicalities. Mr. Alex. Forbes gave a capital" impression of Isaac Isaacson, the scheming Jew.. Mr, J. Bannister Howard, Junr., sus- tained the part of Wittle" with dignity. The "Rev. Peter Pottelbury" had a fine exponent in Mr. G. E. Hall, whilst Mr. C. Aymonde submitted a masterly inter- pretation of Sir Brian Ballymote." Miss Elsie Roberts gave a very creditable impersonation of Lady Rowena," and Miss A. M. Maude was seen to advantage as the Hon. Mrs. Waldegrave." Miss H. Waldorf as Miss Sarah Isaacson," Mr. C. Gifford as the "Hon. Charles Widdicombe," Mr. James Mailey as Barker," Miss Nellie Murray as Lady Millicent Eggington," Miss May Romayne as Kate Pottlebury," and Miss Adela Harvey as "Alice Barker," were others that deserve mention. On Monday evening, Mr. Carr Loates presented his successful musical drama, "At The World's Mercy." There was a very appreciative audience present. Mr. Fred Muntz, the hero, gave a fine im- personation of Captain Frank Manley," and acted with great power throughout. Mr. Carl Loates as Jabez Barber," the solicitor, was deserving high commen- dation, and was ably assisted by Mr. .Alfred Ernest as Morris Goldstein," the Jew. Mr. Will H. Irving as Charley I Smart," with Miss Cissie Milford as "Kittv Knott" and Skittler," intro- duced the humorous element with excel- lent effect. Mr. David Williams, the manager, has another treat for his numerous patrons the latter part of this week with a domestic drama, entitled The Old Home," by Miss Inez Howard's company. This company is always a great attraction in this locality, and the theatre-goers should not miss the opportunity of seeing this play.

Theatre Royal, Tonypandy. That the public appreciate the treat Mr Duckworth has provided for them in the return visit of the late Wilson Barrett's great play, Lucky Durham," by Mr. Arthur Leigh and his capable com- pany. is shown by the well filled houses obtaining at the Royal every evening this week. John Durham," as inter- preted by Mr. Edmund Kennedy, is a striking yet pathetic character, Learn- ing at an early age he is from an accident of birth debarred from succession to his father's title, he emigrates to America, where his upright, calm, collected, methodical determination wins him suc- cess that he is enabled to return to Eng- land, the land of his birth, a millionaire. In the hour of his greatest triumph he plans an ignoble revenge, but the plead- ing of his mother, the greatest sufferer, teaches him the lesson of divine forgive- ness. It is a play that appeals most effectively to human emotion. As there is but little change in caste from this company's last visit, it is unnecessary to say more than that every character is thoroughly well sustained, even the most subordinate parts being carefully inter- preted. To those of our readers who have not yet seen this play we can honestly urge a visit: those who have, are so unanimous in their expression of appro- bation that most of them will doubtless eagerly welcome the opportunity of seeing this delightful play once more. Miss DAISY LAKE as D'olores" in "Florodora.)) od.ora," one of the most success- fePfPfciiisical comedies, will be the attrac- t d -rhe six nights commencing Sep- terober 5th. Both Leslie Stuart and Owen Hall were at their beist when they com- posed the music and wrote the libretto. Very few, if any, musical comedies can boast, of such attractive melodies as Under the Sheltering Palm," "Tell Me, Pretty Maiden," "The Silver Star of Love," and Queen of the Philippine Island," numbers, when once heard, are seldom forgotten, The eccentricities of that old humbug and impostor, "Anthony Tweedlepunch," with his photographs, phrenology, and" bumps," are always entertaining and amusing; in fact such a character in any ordinary comedy, inde- pendent of the music, would have been a great success, but with such a combination of good music, good comedy and an intelli- gent plot, one need not wonder at the continued saccess of "Florodora." The critics, both in London and the provinces, predicted that Florodora had come to stay, and certainly up to the present it 'has stayed over some nine or ten years, and is likely to become one of our most popular standard works. Mr. Charles Constant, in organising his company, has engaged some very popular and well- known artistes, including that well-known and versatile comedian, Mr. Johnnie Scbofield, to portray the professor, Anthony Tweedlepuneh." Mr. Schofield will be well remembered for his humorous performance of Hoggenheimer in "The <iirl from Kays." The "Dolores" will he that clever singer, Miss Djiisy Lake, .who gained a big reputation for her per- formance of The Belle of New York." Her lover, "Frank Abercoed," Mr, -Corn-tier R Dutton, better known on tha operatic stage as a fine baritone singer; Miss Kate Leicester, so long known in connection with musical comedies, will be -the Lady Holyrood and that dainty dancer, Miss Florence Hersee, the "Angela Gilfain," and will, in conjunc- tion with Mr. Johnnie Junior, dance La Danse des Apaches," now creating a great sensation in London and Paris; Capt. Arthur Donegal," Mr. Johnnie Junior; Leander," Mr. Jack Parker; and Cyrus Gilfain by that well-known and popular comedian, Stanley White, with a strong chorus and augmented band, under the direction of Mr. W. Neale.
Empire, Tonypandy. Rhondda audiences are always willing and ready to accord a warm welcome to Percy Honri. And this is not to be won- dered at. His" Concordia" is a mar- vellous piece of stage performance which in its line would be almost impossible to beat. Concordia" is a musical story, centering round a dream, or rather, it is the dream itself. Seated in his armchair at his own fireside, Honri (who is the chief character in the phantasy) falls to sleep whilst playing his beloved concertina, and in his sleep he dreams. Mr. PERCY The scenes in the dream are unfolded to the onlooker, and he is taken in turn through Frivolity Hall, a Street in Hoxton, the Demon Woods, the Dressing Room, beamed on by the Man in the Moon, witnesses a musical allegory, and finally there comes the awakening. The scenes themselves range from the gorgeous- ness of Frivolity Hall to the meanness of a characteristic London street replete with costers, barrows, mokes, and the inevitable policeman. The Demon Woods is a weird and thrilling episode, while the musical allegory is a land of enchantment. Over and above all is the spirit of music, and the concertina, in the expert hands of Honri, interprets the whole range of human emotions. It is a marvellously fine production, to which words can do but very inadequate justice. A very clever turn is that presented by the Five Oliacs, acrobats. The feats are some of the smartest we have yet seen on a local stage, while the humorous element is by no means neglected. Ormond Penstone, assisted by Miss San Go, provides an interesting ten minutes with his conjuring performance, and elicits warm appro- bation with his smoked glass picture of St. Paul's Cathedral. Other features of the bill are the Five May Girls, vocalists and dancers; Lytton and Bland, in a humorous sketch, A Lesson in Love • Harry Tomps, comedian; and the Sisters MeFrey, ragtime dancers.
Spiritualism or What P To-morrow (Friday) night will be a wonder of Spiritualism at the Tonypandy Empire, when Mr. Ormond Penstone (who has been introduced for the first time in South Wales by Mr. Percy .Honri) will present, in addition to his usual pro- gramme, his startling phenomena, en- titled Spiritualism, or What? in which henr-'odu9e tiie Wonders of the so- called Spiritualistic Circle, as performed by him before many committees of eminent Spiritualists, medical men and scientists in Great Britain and France inext week, an exceptionally high-class programme is billed to appear. G. W. Hunter, the popular London star come- dian and raconteur,, heads the list, whilst amongst those supporting him are Susie and Proti, in their original Continental dancing creation, who are great favourites with Rhondda audiences. Those who are in need of a hearty laugh should not fail to see Little Zola next week. He is aptly described as a miniature morsel, of mirth, and so he is. We feel convinced that lie would be successful in producing a smile on the most phlegmatic of coun- tenances. R. Cardigan and Company will appear in an exceedingly funny musical comedy, entitled The Distinguished Visitor" whilst the Soho Trio will delight with their entertaining songs and extra- ordinary examples of Terpsichorean eccen- tricity. Amongst the other turns will be found Barney Murphy, the fellow with the funny little dance; Burt Ward, comedy whistler a»d entertainer; Cissie Lupino, character dancer; and the Emplroscope. We notice the refreshment catering at i ^)lre Bar 1S uow 11 r|der the control or the Empire management, and the finest chocolates and confections and temperance beverages may now be had at popular prices.
STORM- SIGNS FROM SMOKE. Smoke will often beat down as soon as it comes out of the chimney when the weather is about to be stormy. The atmosphere exerts a buoyant force upon the smoke from chimneys in exactly the same way that water exerts a buoy- ant force upon a swimmer. Therefore, when the smoke beats down as soon as it leaves a chimney it must be concluded that the buoyant force exerted upon it is relatively small, and that the air is not heavy but light. A light atmo- sphere, or rather a sudden lessening of the pres- sure of the atmosphere, generally takes place before a storm. Therefore, the smoke from chimneys, if observed intelligently, furnishes a pretty good we-atber indicator, THE "FALL" OF DEW. The fact that Professor Negri found the dew only on the under sides of his glass plates indicates that the popular expression, the "fall" of the clew, is erroneous. The condensation of moisture on the lower sides is due to the cooling of the water vapour ascending out of the ground. If dew was formed by the cooling of a moisture-laden air above the moisture would be found on the upper surface of the glass. In the case of the dew found on the leaves of plants it has been shown that a part of this at least is due to the water vapour passing from the plant itself by transpiration. Envy is the hatred of another's felicity: in re- spect of superiors, because they are not equal to them; in respect of inferiors, lest they should be equal to them; in respect of equals, because they are equal to them. There is, I know not how, in the minds of men a certain presage, as it were, of a. future exist- tence; and this takes the deepest root and is most discoverable in the greatest geniuses and most exalted oouIS.CICERO. Good poetry is in every way the choicest ar- rangement of words. Poetry preserves, upholds, and improves language; it chooses the most clear, vivid, and exact forms of speech, and sup- ports the purest and finest exercise of the lite- rary art..
Porth Skating Rink. Skating continues merrily at the above Rink, and rinking votarieg seem to in- crease week by week.
