Notes and News. SIR HENRY REICHEL is to be congratulated on his new honours. BANGOR experienced a ray of brilliant sunshine when the King laid the foundation stone of the College on Tuesday. SUMMER is still with us. London was fortunate in having one fine afternoon during the current week. JARROW gave a timely lesson to the official section of the Liberal Party in London. There has been too much interference with local matters from the party headquarters in London. NOT only do the Cardiff people get their pianos and organs, electric plant, and toys from Germany, they get some of their theology from there, too. Last Sunday, for instance, a German lady preacher occupied the pulpit at the local Unitarian church. A CURIOUS sight was witnessed off Barry the other day, viz., a couple of wild geese swimming in the sea. AMONGST the questions in an examination paper entitled General knowledge," given to the students at the George Dixon Secon- dary School, Birmingham, a short time ago, were the following Who are the Spring- boks ? Which match did they lose ? The reply to the latter is, of course, Cardiff, but what a curious question to put in an ex- amination paper! MR. PRITCHARD JONES, of Regent Street, is one of the very few successful London Welshmen who help their native land in a practical manner. He has just given £ 3,000 towards the fund of the new University College at Bangor. This is not Mr. Pritchard Jones' first munificent gift in North Wales by any means. A KELT correspondent writes: There is great deal of discussion these days as to "living in." All the drapery employees who live in are not fed on "bread and butter for breakfast and tea ad lib." I could name one big drapery establishment in a South Wales town where the employees get a menu that would make the mouths of thousands of heads of families water. The finest smoked bacon for breakfast, finest coffee, fresh butter and eggs, rolls, &c., with joints and sweets for dinner, preserves for tea, &c. Whilst admitting that many drapery employees fare badly it is not fair to say that they all do so." THERE are some witty people in Swan- sea. The other day, for example, there was an application from the head teacher of St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Schools at the education committee meeting for a supply of soap, and the following discussion ensued The Mayor What kind of soap do they use ? The Clerk Soft soap, I believe (laughter). The Mayor Perhaps the clerk uses soft soap. Alderman Charles I don't think he uses any. (Laughter.) Dr. Davies What is the soap for ? Is it for the teachers to wash themselves ? (Laughter). It was agreed to order a supply of hard soap. THERE is one Welsh lad, at any rate, who is not afraid of the Police. Terrible "Aren't you afraid of the policeman?" asked a Barry magistrate of a boy named Samuel Davies, who played cricket on the pavement in the local High Street. "No, Sir," replied little Samuel in a loud voice. Inspector Morris (indignantly) What did you say." ? (Laughter.) Samuel Davies (equally loud) No, Sir." (Laughter). Magistrate You should fear the police- man, my boy. Go away." And little Samuel went. The will of the late Lord Penrhyn, owner of the famous Penrhyn Slate Quarries, is of course, being proved, but is not yet entered in the Probate Registry Calendar. The estate is of the estimated gross value of nearly 1600,000. A young Welsh milkman had just finished his pudding round on a wet miserable morning recently, when he noticed a smart soldier coming towards him. The man in uniform proved to be a recruiting sergeant, and noticing the dejected condition of the lad, thought he would like to join the Army. Addressing him cheerfully he said, Hallo, my man, would you like to serve the King ? With a keen eye to business the Welshman quickly responded, Yes, Sir. How much does he want, a pint or quart ONE of the most pitiable sights I have ever seen," writes a correspondent, "was the arrival of 800 excursionists at Aberyst- wyth on a pouring wet day. They looked the very picture of misery and woe as they sheltered in doorways and other such places. Why do the authorities at Aberystwyth not provide a kind of shelter, a pavilion, for in- stance, where excursionists might go to when it rains ? THE enormous growth of the Calvinistic Methodist Forward Movement has necessi- tated the opening of offices in one of the principal streets of Cardiff. By the way, the Salvation Army have also opened offices at Cardiff, so that the two biggest and most aggressive forms of religious work in Wales are now worked from the city on the Taff. ONE of the most recent additions to the South Wales weekly press is the Merthyr Guardian, a breezy and readable sheet published on Saturdays. THE spell of wet weather has made the Welsh seaside lodging house keepers very gloomy. There have been practically no visitors at Aberystwyth, Barmouth, and Tenby this last June, which is in great contrast to the June of last year. As the season practically ends in the second week of September, those lodging house keepers who depend solely upon the visitors for a living are to be commisserated with.
