all Notes and News. Long life to King George V. and to Queen Mary. The remains of King Edward VII. will be laid to rest at Windsor next Friday, and the day will be observed as a general day of mourning. With the sudden death of the late monarch the political situation in England is entirely changed. For the next twelve months Parliament will confine its attention mainly to administrative work. King George IV. was a prominent figure in London Welsh life when he was a prince, and attended many of our national gather- ings. As a king, however, he was the most worthless of all the Georges. Mr. Alfred Noyes contributed a fine poetical tribute to the memory of the late King in the Westminster Gazette last Tuesday. Describing him as the man of peace, he says:— And his name, The Peace-maker, through all the future years Shall burn, a glorious and prophetic flame, A beaconing sun that never shall go down, A sun to speed the world's diviner morrow, A sun that shines the brighter for our sorrow For, 0, what splendour in a monarch's crown Vies with the splendour of his people's tears ? The Rev. R. J. Campbell, is not to be turned out of the Congregational Union after all. This week the pastor of the City Temple faced his critics, and told them some plain facts. The Rev. Sylvester Horne, chairman of the Assembly, poured oil on the troubled waters, and all ended in brotherly love. Mr. Clement Edwards has decided not to proceed with the petition to unseat Mr. Ormsby Gore, the new member for Denbigh. This is a wise decision, for it would have been a very costly procedure, and it would have been more sportsmanlike to utilize the money to fight another contest in this Welsh Borough. Mrs. Ellis J. Griffith, wife of the M.P. for Anglesey, who has been in Wales in close attendance on her little daughter (now on the high road to recovery), finds it impos- sible to reply individually to the many kind inquiries she has received, and hopes her friends will accept this acknowledgment. Superstition dies hard in North Wales. In deference to a superstition that work on Ascension Day is attended with accidents, a holiday was observed at Lord Penrhyn's slate quarries, at Bethesda, where close upon 3,000 men are employed. The Welsh "hen hosan is still in exist- ence. At the last meeting of the Bangor and Beaumaris Guardians, the Relieving Officer for the Llandyfan (Anglesey) district reported that Ellen Jones (77), an out-pauper, died on Sunday. She had been in receipt of 5s. a week relief for a considerable period, and had repeatedly declared that she had no means. On her death the sum of £ 199 16s. 6d. was found in an old stocking! It is reported that a Welsh farmer, Mr. E. Morris, of Mochdre, has a ewe which has reached the age of twenty-five and is the mother of forty-five lambs. She has had two lambs every year. We should think Mr. Morris finds farming profitable. Mr. Harold Lloyd, solicitor, Cardiff, who stood as Conservative candidate in the Rhondda Valley at the last election, has been asked to stand for Stockport at the next election. Mr. Harold Lloyd, who is a Welsh- man, is a capital speaker, a clever lawyer, and a genial companion. It is said that on a recent Saturday a case of tinned fruit was opened at the shop of Mr. Hollingdale, grocer, Newport. Inside the case was a showcard, on the back of which was written in lead pencil :—"If this should fall into the hands of some nice young man who wants to correspond with a jolly good girl, address Miss Carrie Kleiner, Grove Street, Oakland, California." Throughout Wales, as in England, the news of King Edward's death came as a great surprise. The South Wales dailies, containing a report of his death, were sold in the streets of Cardiff, Newport and Swansea in the early hours of Saturday morning. In recognition of the exceptional cleverness of the Newport Football Club during the season just concluded, the Committee have decided to present each player in the team with a souvenir. It is expected that the souvenir will take the form of gold match- boxes, or silver stop watches. The Welsh Rugby Union have limited the expenditure to three guineas per player.
