POACHING CARDIFF FOOTBALLERS. TEMPTING OFFERS TO DRISCOLL AND SAVAGE. THE AGENT HAILS FROM MAN- CHESTER. There will be a stir in local football circles when the following story is known. The first serious attempt to capture the promising players, Driscoll and Savage, for a North Country club has jusb been made, and that it proved a failure is no fault of the apent who conducted the negotiations. On Tuesday evening a short, well-dressed man, with a suave manner and a, slight dark mous- tache, approached George Lewis, the trainer to the Cardiff Club, and asked him if be could tell him where Hockey" Driscoll lived, as he—the stranger—had very important business with the player's father. George proved as good a reader of character as trainer, and fancying he could detect a well- controlled Yorkshire accent he made an accurate guess at the business, and brusquely told his questioner to M go back to Leeds, or there would be trouble," This was the northern gentleman's first mistakes the second not transpiring until he had had inter- views with the boys" at his hotel this morning. George Lewis did not communicate with Driscoll, but late at night a messenger reached Savage's house with a note. The bearer requested Savage to brinp Driscoll with him to an hotel named in the note on Wednesday "on important business for their benefit." The" boys "-bosom chums—after con- sultation with their friends kept the appointment, and were not long before being made aware of the important business." Offers were made to them, they declare, on behalf of a club "Manchester way," and they were invited to leave Cardiff at once, or as soon as possible. They were told, they aver, they would be provided with jobs purely of sinecure character, just to show you are working men, you know. Their wages would not be high, but "presents and club wages would amount to fully 353 every week." This was the Manchester gentleman's second mistake. The boys gave an emphatic "No" to his solicitations, and Driscoil alleges that it was with difficulty he could break away from the room. Driscoll undoubtedly was the game the emissary was keenest on bagging, but failing to make any impression on the sterling centre-cum-half back he transferred his attentions to Savage.who states that the gentleman offered to send bis mother a couple of quid if he would go along with him that day." Thus ended the second mistake the third will follow should the gentleman from Manchester make further overtures.
THE VISITOR INTERVIEWED. HE HAS RETURNED TO MANCHESTER. In the afternoon one of our football reporters interviewed the visitor at his hotel. At first he stoutly denied he bad seen or knew anything abont Driscoll, but when George Lewis put in a timely appearance he ookuowledged the object of his mission. We," he said, were told that Savage was out of work by one of the three ex- Cardifiians playing for Leigh, and that he was open to an offer of employmenti up North. We thought we could do with a good recruit, and made the offer that's all. There's no harm done at ail. We only wanted Savage. We had no thought of Driscoll." Reminded by George Lewis of his application to the trainer on the previous night for Driscoll's father's address for important business," the Northern gentleman admitted that he would have taken up Driscoll if Savage would nob have gone without his friend," This raised a laugh, and Lewis advised the visitor to return to Manchester before the story of his visit and its purpose leaked out. This advice was acted upon, and after profuse thanks the emissary, whose name and Manchester address we hold, departed for the Noith.
YESTERDAY'S MATCHES. SUSSEX v. EASTERN COUNTIES.—(Rugby Junior County Championship—JSouth-E-isti^ro). Played at Ipswich. Rainy weather setting in just before the match affected the attendance, which was small. Lane scored a try 5 minutes from the start, and dropped a goal 5 minutes later. The Counties improved immensely, and Ward put in good work. The Counties, though attacking severely, were unable to get over the line, The visitors' three-quarters were exceed- ingly smart, while the Counties three- quarters proved rather weak. The superior passing of Sussex baffled the Counties, and followintr play m the house 25 secured a try, from which Gunnery obtained the major point. Continuing to have the play all their own way, Godfree obtained a try, which Duckworth con- verted. Lane notched another try, and Whetham scored a dropped goal. Lane and Bevis both secured tries before the finish. FINAL SCORE G. T. U. SUSSEX *4. 4. G EASTERN COUNTIES 0 0 0 TWO dropped. ILKESTON V.

On crossing over be repeated the performance, after which Spooner got a goal for Albion, and just before the finish Vassall, in saving, gave them another. CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY V. DUBLIN UNIVERSITY. -Played at Cambridge, and won by Cambridge by 2 goals to nil.
CARDIFF v BLACKHEATH. The Cardiff Committee have selected the team which defeated Newport to represent the club in the match on Saturday next against Blackbeath at the Rectory field. COUNTING TRIES-BEFORE THE GAME. "Next Saturday Blaokheuth and Cardiff meet at the Rctory Field, and last week's victory of the latter over Newport invests the game with addi- tional interest. Selwyn Biggs, I am glad to hear, has recovered from his fractured jaw, and will reappear on the field. The games between these two clubs, as a rule, provide the most picturesque expositions of the modern Rugby game. The home team have, I think, a great chance of vic- tory. If they play up, they are ture to have the best of the gar,te forward. At half you cannot beat Cattell and Maturin. At three-quarter they are not a bit together, but individually they are good, and in Harris they have one of the most reliable full-backs of the day." Thus Mr Budd m The Morning. What an extraordinary pack Blackheath must have. Cambridge are reported to have beaten them forward Cardiff beat New- port and Cambridge with seven. We shall see what we shall see and—South Walians don't expect to be surprised. THE MAYOR OF GRIMSBY ON FOOTBALL. The Mayor of Grimsby (Alderman Palmer) in declining an invitation to become the president of the Grimsby and Cleethorpes Football League, says j—" From the way football is now played I cannot allow myself to be associated with it in any form." _———
THE OLD AND THE NEW. Mrs Keeley's career on the stage was nob an exceptionally long one, and was covered by only 35 years. Many popular actresses now living, and following their profession with aotivity, honour, and profit, have been on the stage quite as long, although they may hav" bpgun at a little earlier age than the heroine of lasb Friday's demonstration at the Lyceum. High salaries were not the rule, but quite the exception, up to the period of Mrs Keeley's praotical retirement in 1850, and she, no doubt, owes her comfortable competence to her skill and good fortune as a manageress (both at the Lyceum and the Princess's), and to her quiet life and frugal habits. At the private reception on Friday last, after the great public welcome, she told a friend, before other friends, that for her two last paid performances at the Gaiety, in 1871, the manager was the first m\1 who treated her with modern liberality.—PATTY Chrouicle,
A THIEF IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING. Early in the morning two policemen who were on duty at the slaughterhouses of Pans were astonished to see a sheep endeavouring to effect an entrance into the enclosure where creatures of its kind were stationed. Bub the officers at ten tion was redoubled when a man s hand protruded e from beneath the stolen fleeoe. Their curiosity became intensified, and they carefully followed the sham a.mro&l who stopped at the pen which enclosed the real articles, and with great coolness chose the largest and fattest two of the flock. Still observed by the watebful guardians of the law, this plagiarist of an ancient fable proceeded to killed cut up his capture, and was on the point of making off with his booty when he found himself m turn the spoil of the law, and was quickly marched off to the Police Stationi
THE DIVINE SARAH. 5fafa'?e Sarah Bernhardt some time ago pre- sented the Jardm des Plant** with two fine ourang-outangs, but, unfortunately, the sudden change in the temperature has proved fatal to the female of the couple, called Virginia. The male, however, who is appropriately enough named Paul, is thriving well. and seem^ in no way cast down by the sudden death of his companion. A dog-faced monkey was piaced in fche £ tQ ke„p i aul company, but the latter, probably indignant at an inferior breed !'1nA' palmed off on him as a substitute for Virgime, nearly beat the unfortu- nate little beast to death.

AN EARLY ULADfcTONIAN PROBLEM Mr H. W. Lucy's interesting memento of Mr Gladstone's recent cruise with Sir Donald Currie in the Tantallon Castle has been issued by Messrs Sampson Low, Marston, and Co. Many exoellent stories are told in it. Mr Gladstone always went to the music room after dinner, where Mrs Henry Gladstone somatiinss played the violin and Mr Nicol often sang. One night. listening to Auld Robin Gray," there was brought over the wonder- fully gteen fields of his memory the vision of a little boy baffl-d by his first problem in political economy. I remember," Mr Gladstone said, when I was a ohild hearing that song and being struck by the lines- To mak* the crown a pound Mylantie went to sea, And the crown a.nd the pound Were baith for me. "How," I asked, "could they baith be for the Kirl when the crown waa an integral part of the pound not two distinct acquisitions, but the larger'including the less ?" The question put by the little boy 80 years ago remains (says the Birmingham Gazette) unanswerad.

REGULATION OF CARDIFF CASUALS. ADOPTION OF THE CELLULAR SYSTEM. The Cardiff Board of Guardians have jush completed new casual wards to accommodate 24 males and 15 females, at a cost of L4.000. The erection of the buildings has for its ob^eH the carrying out of provisions of tha Oss' Poo? Act of 1882, under which the poo" K™ ^fficnnla have discretionary power to detain cafmai3 until 9 a.m. of the second day following his or her admission, the vagrant in the meantime to have performed a certain assigned labour task. Where this system has been adopted, the authorities report a ntriking diminution in the number of tramps who have presented themselves for a night's lodging. The system of construction is that known as the cellular system. In each of the men's cells is a hammock and two rugs, also a space for breaking stones. In the women's cells are bedsteads, and the inmates are employed either in oakum picking or in washing or scrubbing. The number of vagrants that passed through the Cardiff casual wards in 1888 was 3,341, compared with 7,486 in the year ending March 25h, 1895.
ST. ANDREW'S, CARDIFF. AN EXCHANGE OF LIVINGS. In the beginning of January the Rev. G. W, Hanford, vicar of St. Andrew's, Cardiff, will preach his valedictory sermon. An exchange of livings has been agreed upon between the rev. gentleman and the Rev. Dr. Niohoison, vicar of St. James's, Forest Gate, Stratford, London, and both gentlemen were instituted to their respective livings on Thursday, the 21st inst. The Rev. Dr. Nicholson will preach at St. Andrew's on the morning of Sunday, Decem- ber 15th, and at St. Teilo's in the evening. The Rev. G. W. Hanford returns to St. Andrew's on Monday next, and will remain until the begin- ning of January, when, as we have said, he will preach his farewell sermon. Acrarding to Crockford, tho living of St. Forest Gate, has a gross income of :6600 with a house. Dr. Nicholson is late scholar of Trinity College, Dublin (1851); he took his 13. A. (Sen. Mod. Cl.) in 1855 Divinity Testimonium (2nd class) in 1856 M.A., 1859; ad eundum grajnim M.A., Oxford, 1860 B.D. and D.D., 1880. He was deacon in 1850 at Ki'.laloe, and ordained priest in 1857 at Dublin. He was appointed to the vicar. age of Sf. James's, Forest Gate, in 1837.
SWANSEA SCHOOL BOARD. The monthly meeting of the Swansea School Board was held on Wednesday afternoon, when here were present Alderman Harris (chairman), Alderman Gwilym Morgan, Revs. A. A.

It was thought that the Board had power to compel the Corporation to keep its streets m proper condition.— The Schools Building Committee recommended that the use of a room in the Central Higher Grade School be given during the week days for instruction in Hebrew, but not for religious instruction, at a charge te cover the cost of light and olpaning.-The recommendation was carried. -Mr David Roberts moved a motion having for its object the admission of representatives of the Press at committee meetings.—The motion was I lost by seven to three.

OUR COUNTRY COLUMN. The question is often asked whether summer or winter pruning is best. The answer depends somewhat on circumstances. Last week I gave an illustration showing how best to prune a gooseberry bush, and this week we refer to the block ourrant. The process ii prac- tically the wme in bof.h. The thing to be avoided is too thick or toe close growth, as if either of thes" oS aiiowed a crop of fruit cannot reasonably be expected. It is hardly too much to say that the soft fruit crop of this country would be increased by one-third if common-sense pruning were more generally followed. Unless sun and air are admitted to the tree it cannot succeed. In the case of the black currant the side shoots shortened in summer are cut back in winter to an inch of the base, leaving th main branches a little less than a foot apart. If this is done, other conditions being favourable, a fair crop of fruit is certain. Assuming that we are not breeding for show or any particular purpose for which early maturity, size, eto., are required, we reoommend that for the'first litter (and that only in the case of a Btrong yenng gilt) not more than seven or eight I pigs at once should be left to suckle the sow. I On the second litter 10 may be permitted but we are aware that some people advise 11 or 12. Our experience, after years of breeding for all purposes, is that the sow which can, on her second and subsequent litters, raise 10 young ones, fine in quality and even in siae, up to the time of weaning, is a really good animal, and is doing as much as can be expected. Most cer- tain iy 10 good young pigs are far better and more saleable than 12 or 13, of which four or five will be indifferent and weak, and therefore unsaleable. We have frequently seen the extra pigs in the litter over and above the 10 or so brought up by hand upon spoon and bottle feeding and although they did not grow as fast as those fed upon the sow, and up to four months old did not show much for the trouble, yet we hava known them to grow into fine pigs. Indeed, one of the finest boars we ever saw was reared by a poor woman cottier who had nothing but a goat to provide milk for her little children and the pig. The great secret of success in home pig-breeding is care and attentiou during farrowing time, and for a week or two afterwards. From the time the giit-ttiab is to say. the maiden pig—has been put to the boar, which latter we consider ought to be thoroughbred ot its own particular sort, she will require but little attention, and a very limited amount of food up to four or five weeks of farrowing. A run on grass in the daytime, with a shelter in case of rain, and a dry lie at night, supplemented with almost any kind of food that offers, will keep the pregnant sow going for the first three months. After that she will begin to what is called "melt," and a little more liberal treatment and care are required. Heating food, such as Indian meal or the like, should not be given in quantity the great thing is to give soft, laxative diet. After farrowing, for two or three days the sow should only get some bran tea or thin gruel, as there is a liability of milk fever up to three days. From the third day after farrowing the sow must be fed more liberally still, as the young will begin to get strong, and require more iiiijic and as the demand for milk increases, so must the supply of food. The sow must be allowed to walk out in the fresh air every day to stretch her legs," from a few minutes at first, to a longer period as the brood gets older. As a grtat deal of attention is just now being given to the question of fattening fowls, and as fattening must be done on a system to succeed, I give this week an inexpensive form of fattening pen. This is a most convenient contrivance, and it has a number of virtues not seen on the surface. In fattening, cleanliuess is a great matter, and in every good pen this is specially provided for. The floor of such a pen is constructed of bars running lengthwise, and through these a drawer beneath receives the droppings. This can be taken out and cleansed as occasion requires. The pen is divided into compartments havinga. hinged flap, and the birds are put in and taken out at the top. The food and water troughs, placed in front, are of zinc, and a pr-n suitable for four fowl* costs about 16,. As there are a great, many superfluous oockerels and pullets about at this tune of year, I would advise any of my readers who possess them to try the experiment of fattening a few fowls. It ought to succeed whether the fowls are fattened for sale or for home use. The illustration shown has been kindly lent by Mr W. Cooper, of London, TO SMALL HOLDERS. It often happens chat the possessor of a house has a small amount of arable land attached to it in addition to a meadow, and keeping cows and ijigi, and possibly a horse, he naturally desires to make as much of his land as possible. Of course the cultivation of orops of corn is not to be thought of, especially at present prices, and, therefore, either roots or forage plants must be grown. In the choice of these the small grower is limited, because some things can be purchased more oheaply than they can be grown, but, on the other hand, some subjects "pay well if properly grown, seeing that from 10 to 20 tons or more can be had to the acre, and that as the price varies from 10s 6d to £1 or more per ton, ib pays to grow them. The best orops are obtained from a well manured and deeply worked medium loam, but fair otops can be had on both heavy and light soils, but, of course, on these cultivation has much to do with the matter. To produce the best crops the land should be dug or ploughed up rough before Christmas, and should be turned over again in February. and, if necessary, all couch grass, twitch, spear grass, or whatever it is called locally, cleaned out. During frosty weather a heavy dressing of manure should be carted on, and whenever the weather is favourable it should be spread, and dug or ploughed in as the case may be. This will be done by the end of March or middle of April, according to the district, and will allow a short time for the soil to settle, sowing taking place from the third week in April until tho middle of May, according to position bud season. About a week beforehand the land should be well har. rowed to obtain a fine tilth, and all rubbish drawn up should bu burned on the ground, or carted away into a heap to rot, as may be most conve- nient.; Everything being ready, tha seed abould be dri led m fine weather, afterwards rolling with a light roHer. Some persons sow Robinson's Drum. j Can ™ f°r fear of failures, and really this is not at all a bad plan where cows are kept, as, should the crop be a gappy one, the cabbages come in very handily, and the seed being cheap, even if all the cabbages are out out, the loss is not great. The rows should be 18 or 24 inches apart, and the plants, when thinned, should be from 15 inches to 18 inches asunder in the rows, the soil and season of sowing having much to do in this matter; indeed, no hard and fast line can be laid down. So soon as the rows of seedling plants can be seen, the ground should be fiat hoed between the rows, to keep down the weeds, and when the aeedhngs have oiao or two rough leavep, they should be singled out to a proper distance opart. They will, after thill, need two or three hoeings to keep down weeds, the spaces between the rows being most cheaply treated by means of :a-J»orse boe* should sucfe be on --the, Wbw the leaves cover the ground there is no further need of hoeing, and should any tall weeds push up they can ba pulled out by hand, at the same time cutting off any flower stems from the beet which may bolt. During the earlier at,ages of the growth of the plants, and before the final hoeing, it is often a good plan to give a dressing of fish salt or nitrate of soda between the rows, from one and a half to two and a half hundredweight per acre being allowed according to the soil but in ail places this top dressing is not absolutely necessary, the condition of the land being the criterion KS to whether top dressing is or is not necessary. When the roots are matured I in October they must be pulled up, the top wrung or twisted.off and thrown into heaps, covering these with the leaves to protect the roots from frost. When all the roots are up they must be clamped in long clamps the same as potatoes, giviner a coating of straw first, and then placing a good thickness of earth over all. Here they will keep until well into April if not rpquired for use. As to the best sort to use opinions differ, but tor general all round work there is nothing to match the yellow globe varieties. In growing beet it must always be borne in mmd that it is tender and will not stand frost, therefore it must not bit sown too early, or left out too late in the year for fear of damage to the crop.
A STRANGE HIDING PLACE. £ 550 FOUND IN A KITCHEN BOILER. An elderly lady named Mrs Ann Hall, who has recently died at Quarry-street. Swansea, where ehe has lived for the last 20 years, seems to have I had a strange hiding-place for a portion of her savings. After her death the son of the deceased searched the house, and in the cupboard found an old disused boiler. This was of considerable old disused boiler. This was of considerable weight, and on it being looked into the cause of its heaviness was found to be the presence of 350 sovereigns. This, it is stated, by no means repre- sents the whole of Mrs Hall's savings.
PRINCIPAL MICHAEL D. JONES. It is satisfactory to leasn that with reference to the venerable Principal Michael D. Jones, of Bala, that hopes of his early recovery, or at least convalescence, are entertained. Apart from the interest attaching to him as the principal founder of the Welsh colony in Patagonia, his name naturally recurs during the discussion of Welsh Home Rule as the first living apostle of that gospel.

THE QUEEN'S SOLICITUDE. Actors and actresses who have visited Windsor or Balmoral have often (says the World) been unspeakably gratified by her Majesty's gracious inquiries, through Sir Henry Ponsonby, as to how they had fared on the return journey and supported its fatigues. Some of them (haughty souls !) may perhaps feel their enthusiasm a little dashed on learning that the same tender solicitude was extended to a troupe of parformmg animals which had the honour of appearing at Windsor Castle. But, after all, what are actors but performing animals ? And it is quite in the- spirit of this Darwinian age that Royalty should diaw no hard-and-fast line between the specie;?,
A FEW HOME TRUTHS. The most curious thing in the world is a woman who is not curious. Every man is a hero to the woman who loves him. The more a woman's waist is shaped like an hour glass tho sooner will the sands of life runout. The only time a woman does not exaggerate is when she is speaking of her own age. Rich widows are the only second-hand goods that sell at prime cost.
FIRST REHEARSAL. 10 one of the ecenes of Byron's "A Hundred Thousand Pounds" the principal character has to walk up the centra of the stage while saying, I give up my claim—waive my title."

"My dear boy," called out Byron. in his serious manner, "you're waivin" vour ti tIel!" n

Robinson, the Lyddington trainer, intends to put a horse or two to jumping, and forthwith makes a start with Keynsham. M. R. Lebaudy, who has altogether over 100 horses in training in Kngland, Francei and Austria, has never bet a franc in his life. Malchus has been off colour since his victory m the Aintree Steeplechase at Liverpool. Mr » yuer's big, bold jumper has, in consequence, done nothing but walking exercise. William I'Anson has a novel way of giving confidence to nis yearlings.
