THE editor of a leading Wilkesbarre newspaper is a Welshman from Glamorgan- shire. MR. CHAPPEL, a young Pontypridd re- porter, has just sailed for the United States to take up a position on a newspaper there. ACCORDING to a Rhondda journal "can't be beat was the legend upon a box of eggs in a local grocer's shop. Refreshing candour. Will the Teachers strike ? is the bold subject of an article in the Welsh Leader. Our recollection is that they were striking many years ago, and pretty hard, too, sometimes THE United States Government expressly stipulate that the United States Consul at Cardiff must know Welsh, although, as a matter of fact, it is quite unnecessary. IN a Welsh speech at the Exhibition a speaker referred to "Lord Tredegar." He was promptly pulled up by Morien, who re- marked Arglwydd Tredegar os gwelwch chwi fod yn dda." THE Welsh Industries Association's Exhibition at Pontypridd was a very great success. This association is doing splendid work, and deserves the support of every Welshman and Welshwoman who are interested in the development of the in- dustries of their native land. MR. LLOYD-GEORGE is recognised as one of the ablest Board of Trade ministers we have seen for many years. His mastery of the details of departmental work is marvellous, and it is no surprise to hear that he will spend Witsuntide vacation in a trip to Ham- burg to study some further details respecting the shipping trade at that port. HOLIDAY OUTFITS.—Now, that the holiday season has commenced, our readers will be interesting themselves in their wearing apparel for the coming summer weather. To those who desire an immediate supply in holiday or cricket and tennis suitings, they would do well to visit the several stores of Messrs. Charles Baker and Co., Ltd., whose advertisement appears in the present issue. Messrs. Baker have capable Welshmen, in their many departments, and on their Ludgate Hill establishment may be seen the legend Siaredir Cymraeg." Their stock is the most varied in London, while their prices are admittedly very low.
