DIXAS POWIS FLOAV, EP-t SHOW. DELIGHTFUL SURROUNDINGS. SUCCESSFUL EXHIBITION. FULL LIST OF AWARDS. The success that has each year attended this annual exhibition of fruit, flower, and vege- tables held during the past six years is becoming more marked at each succeeding show. The promoters have fully entitled themselves to a mead of praise for thus affording an aid to the best kind of horticultural enterprise, and the result of their assiduity is reflected in the neat and excellent manner in which the cottager vies with the gentleman in order to preserve the grateful bounties of Nature. The entries at the show on Wednesday far exceeded those at any previous display, while the quality has scarcely been equalled in any district or town show yet held, the season having been exceptionally favourable to growers. This is especially the case in the cottagers' classes, the vegetables being very fine, and, as declared by the judges, ■were really better than the famous Cardiff Show. In all other respects this exhibition is running that show for first place. In the early DH'vniivg a few sharp showers were experienced, affording the whole of the beautiful surroundings of the show in the grounds of Bryneitbin quite a refreshing air. The delightful spot has been kindly lent by Mr D. T. Alexander for each of the shows, and it is only common knowledge that the "At Home" usually held by Mrs Alexander on the occasion, when her dis- tinguished friends are hospitably entertained, conduces greatly to the attendance. The com- pany at Sryneithen this year included Lady Windsor and her distinguished parent, Lady Pa.ret; Lady Caroline. Jenkins, Lady Eva Wvndham Quinn and family, Major-General H H. Lee and Mrs Lee, Mr and Mrs and Misses Sweet-Escott, Penarth Councillor S. A. Brain and Mrs Brain, Mr Lascelles Carr, Mr J. H. Vincent (assistant general manager of the Barry I y Company) and M.s Vincent; Inspector Butler and Mrs Butler; Mr D. W. Koberts and Mrs Roberts, Miss Kous, Court-yr-ala, Dr P. J. C, u'Donnell Dr E. F. Sixsmitb, Dr Roche (Dinas Powis), Mr Isaac (Messrs Collett and Isaac), Rev J. Price and Mrs Price, Barry Councillor F. P. Jones-Lloyd, Councillor S. Barnett, besides the officers of the committer, who were found busy carrying out the admirable arrange- ments, including the indefatigable secretary, Mr J. B. Mocktord, of the National Schools. The judges were Mr G. Battram, of Navigation, and Mr S. Tresseder, Pwll Coch, Cardiff; whilst Mr D. T. Alexander adjudged the clay pipe end walking stick, and Mrs Alexander and Miss Esther Davies, of the Glamorgan County Coun- cil, adjudicated the other special classss. In addition to the other attractions Mr Win. Tresseder. Cardiff', exhibited some really magni- cent specimens of floral art in the shape of an anchor worked in rich-huerl asters; a bridal bouquet of choice white flowers; a beau- tiful wreath and a harp, all of which were features of great admiration. Mr Ralph Crossling, Penarth and Mr S. Treseder also exhibited a fine selection of rich-coloured roses really fine specimens. An epergne was also shown by Mr Moore, of Courtyrala, a most successful exhibitor of table decorations, and this, although not for competition, was awarded a certificate of merit by the committee, the exquisite display and light treatment of the flowers forming a splendid effect. Mr Fred. Roberts' (Cardiff) string band provided excel- lent instrumental music, and the Barry District Glee Society (conducted by Mr D. Farr), the winners of the gold medal and prize at the recent Bridgend Eisteddfod, afforded the visi- tors a rich treat by their splendid glee singing, and "Comrades in Arms" and "Destruction of Gaza were well received, the whole assem- bly bursting into applause as the party reached the closing bars. The refreshments were pro- vided by Miss Evans, grocer, Dinas Powis, and the catering left nothing to be desired. In the course of the afternoon Lady Windsor, from one of the lawns and in view of the whole of the people, distributed the prizes in the allot- ment and cottagers' classes, the judges having spoken in eulogistic terms of the whole of the show. Major-General H. H. Lee introduced Lady Windsor to the assembly, and on the motion of the gallant gentleman, seconded by Mr D. T. Alexander, a hearty vote of thanks was accorded her ladyship for attending, the compliment being graciously acknowledged. A hearty vote of thanks was also tendered to Mr and Mrs Alexander for kindly placing their delightful grounds at the disposal of the com- mittee, and especially for the generous hospi- tality displayed towards the ladies and gentlemen present in such large numbers. In the evening dancing was enjoyed on the lawn. LIST OF AWARDS. DIVISION A.

VISIT OF MR TENNYSON SMITH. WELCOMED BY A PROCESSION. CROWDED MEETINGS EACH NIGHT. NUMBERS SIGNING THE PLEDGE. An impetus has during the last few days been undoubtedly given to the temperance movement at Barry by the visit of that world-famed and success- ful orator, Mr E. Tennyson Smith, who has been secured by the Free Ctiurch Council to conduct a week's mission. Temperance workers at Barry have for several months past exhibited a spirit of lethargy, which resulted in the Temperance Council —a body which had been in existence for many years—becoming defunct, and also almost com- pletely annihiliating any sign of action in opposi- tion to the drink traffic in the district. With the arrival of Mr Smith, however, new life has been infused into the prohibitionists, aud the enthusiasm manifested at the meetings will undoubtedly furnish rt:at practical results after the mission has con- cluded. The mission opened on Saturday evemug last, a large concourse of people assembling at Bairy Dock Railway Station to welcome the lecturer. A procession, including the Cadoxton Wesleyan Band, Salvation Army Band, and Barry Drum and Fife Band, was then formed, and paraded the principal streets of the town. Owing to the unfavourable weather that prevailed, an opeu-air gathering could not take place, as iutended, but a great public meeting was afterwards held at the Wesleyau Chapel, Holton-road, the building being crowded to its utmost limits. Mr Richard Cory, J.P., Cardiff, occupied the chair, and he was sup- ported by Mr Tennyson Smith, i\ev J. C. Honey (secretary of the Free Church Council), Rev L. ron Evans, and Mr C. H. Shave. After singing and prayer and an address by the Chairman, Mr Tennyson Smith proceeded to address the gather- ing, his subject being "Opening the Campalgll- What we have to Fight, and how we mean to Fight it." He strongly denounced the brewers anu liquor-sellers generally, and challenged them to disprove any of the various statements which he made respecting the curse and degradation which tIdrink tlaffic was causing in the country. Mr Smith maintained that prohibitionists were aheold ,f public opinion, and they were endeavouring t" reverse that position. One of his remarks, to the effect that no one connected with the drink traffic should be allowed to remain a member of a Chris- tian Church, was received with enthusiastic applause, and tho speaker said he was pleased to tind such a unanimous opinion amongst the people of Barry on this question. The address was listen d to throughout with rapt attention, being inter- spersed with some original and appropriate anecdotes, for which the lecturer is so famous. At the close of the gathering several persons came forward and signed the pledge. The celebrated Barry Temperance Choir, which recently took the laurels at the Crystal Palace (conducted by Mr J. P, Hicks), was also in attendance, aud leudered several suitable selec'ions, and will continue to do S) every evening throughout the mission. Mr Albert Hazel also acted as accompanist, and will continue his excellent services each evening.
SUNDAY'S MEETINGS. On Sunday afternoon Mr Smith delivered an interesting address at a united meeting for children and young people at the Barry Dock Wesleyan Chapel, and in the evening, at 8.15, there was a crowded congregation present to hear his able uldress on In Darkest Drinkdom and the Way Out," the chair boing occupied by Mr W. J. Flowers. The proceedings were very interesting throughout, several questions being asked and satisfactorily answered, a large number also signing the pledge.
A PLEA FOR TEETOTALISM. On Monday evening every niche in the spacious Salvation Army Hall was occupied, when the work commenced in earnest. Mr Tennyson Smitll -elected as the subject of his lecture the words of Her Majesty the Queen respecting strong dr ink —" So Great a Curse "—and his marvellous powers of description, quick perceptive force, an! natural Hood of eloquence were each pourtrayed in his account- of the evils of intemperance. The chair was occupied by Ensign Davidson, of the Salvation Army, who was supported on the platform by the Temperance Choir, and among those present were observed :—Captain Murrell, Revs J. C. Honey, W. Dauiell, W. H. Pritchard, M. Isaac, L. Ton Evans, and Messrs G. Panniers, W. J. Flowers, J. Cruifc, &c. The lecturer was listened to with rapt attention as he displayed, by illustration after illustration, that there is hope for ever the most degraded drunkard. The idea of teetotalism was not commercialism it was not pocket. If it were, it deserved to perish. It was a question of morality. The brewers said that even if there were these drunkards that he had described, they were chiefly confined to "professional druukards," and the Times a few years ago said that even if there were 60,000 drunkards every year they were poor stuff, and neither teetotalism or anything else would make any good of them. That had never been true, for wherever they found a lot of drunkards they would find some of the best work- men they could ever come across. They would be able to find some of the most talented lawyers and cleverest doctors and, unfortunately, some of the best preachers that had adorned the pulpit, who had been removed from the most exalted places in Zion to the lowest depths of misery by the drink fiend. But even though the publican style them "professional druukards," they would still be able to find much good in men of that state. The fascination of the drink traffic was terrible, and in its consequences it was appalling. After making a rousing appeal, over 30 persons came forward to sign the total abstinence pledge, the proceedings being rendered very interesting by the siugmg ot several Well-known hymns.
FILLED TO OVERFLOWING. On Tuesday evening, the spacious building was filled to overflowing, even the aisies being occupied by a crowd eager to hear the famous lecturer. It is rarely, if ever, that the inhabitants of the neigh- bourhood have been stirred to such a pitch of enthusiastic interest as in connection with the present mission. Mr Tennyson Smith, by the versatility of his talent, was able to interest those that had heard him at each of the previous meet ings in an equal degree to those who heard him thaj evening for the first time. The subject of his lecture was thrilling, especially the concluding representation of his interview with the drink demon. The chair was taken by the Rev Walter Dmiel, who spoke in appropriate terms of the objects of the mission, and at the close the oppor- tunity for conversion was grasped by a large num- ber.
GREAT EXCITEMENT ON WEDNES- DAY. The greatest possible excitement prevailed at \y,dn'srJay night's mc,tiw!. wlwn the la-ge hall Wi,S ¡¡gain utlcomfortahly fnil. Mr G. Rutter occu- pied the chair. Mr Smith gave his intensely affecting description of the tug-of-war in the course of I;is lecture, and the people present became so enthusiastic that many of them rose to their fe, t and waved their handkerchiefs exultantly, 39 pledges being taken at the close.
FRUITFUL RESULT OF THE MISSION. OVER 100 PLEDGES TAKEN. At each of the meetings of Mr Tenuyson Smith siuce the opening of the mission the following pledges have been taken Saturday 6 Sunday 9 Monday 36 Tuesday 34 Wednesday 39 Total 124
"THE TRIAL OF ALCOHOL. Considerable curiosity and interest have been aroused in the Trial of Alcohol," which is to take place in the Romilly Hall, Barry, on Monday next. This is the "special and concluding night" uf Mr Tennyson Smith's series of meetings, and invariably proves very attractive. We learn that a Cardiff eentleniaii, who has had some success as a debater, has consented to defend Alcohol, and it is not by any means a foregone conclusion that Mr Tennyson Smith will "in the day, as on two or more occasions the jury has brought in a verdict of Net- gud'y." rh., jury will consist of loell gentlemen, and it is stated that it will not be packed with teetotallers, but that fully lialf will be moderate drinkers. We are informed that the tickets, which are one shilling each (children sixpence), have been selling ripidly. Persons who purchase tickets before the evening of the Trial" will be admitted by early d-jors thirty minutes before tickets are sold at the door. Press notices state that, frequently all the tickets have been bought up beforehand, as wns the caveat Weston a few moaths ago, when more were soi l than the hall was calculated to accommodate, and money was refused at the door.
DISTRICT NEWS. CADOXTON. FLOWER SHOW.—We are pleased to learn that this year's show inaugurated by the friends at Bethel Presbyterian Chapel, Court-roid, promises to excel the show of previous years, all of which undoubtedly have been unqualified successes. Major VV, H. Wyndham Quin, M.P., the presi- dent, will open the how at the Caduxton Marke Hall at two p. m. on Wednesday next. There will be a novelty in the form of a washing competition, which we have not before witnessed in this district. It will be seen by the advertisement in another column that 25s, in two prizes, are off red for this competition, and we hope, this being a novel and eminently useful competition, that the secretaries have received a goodly number of entries. JCY ENI IJF, tECHAHlTE D !M O KSTKATIOX — The annual juvenile demon-tration. tet and outing of the above tent took place last Saturday, under the auspices of the members of the adult tent. The children, having assembled at 2.30 p m. in the Calvinistic Methodist Schoolroom, Kenilworth- road, started to parade the principal streets of Cadoxton and Barry Dock, preceded by the Salva- tion Army Bands, who kindly gave their services on the occasion with a willing heart, which is characteristic of them. and to wholll the Rechabitt-s a e deeply indebted. Arriving at the Bib'e Christian Chapel. Court road, where they partook of tea and other good things, the procession again formed, and marched to a fi-ld ou Cr >gan lidl. Which had been kindly lent by Mr Adams, coal merchant. We are sorry, however, to say that the field sports were totally marred by the heavy dowupur of rain. To make amends for that unfor- tunate termination, we hear that a fruit banquet will be given to them, which will, we hope, be attended w ith more fav ourable we ither. THEATRE ROYAL.—The enterprising manager of the local theatre has provided the public with another treat. Mr Herbert Ford's company, in tile Mask of Death," is occupying the boards this I r week. The chief characters in the piece are Dr Castell (Mr Augustine Knight) Jack Selhy (Mr W H Rotherham); Sam Slivers (Mr Herbert Ford) Dr Price (Mr Herbert Lewis) an l Alice Tnornaby (Miss Hilda Beverley). The piece i^ full of sensa- tional and exciting incidents. A murder takes place in Mr Thornaoy's garden at moonlight. The murder is done by a ghostly figure, who is called the Man without a Fac?, and the blame is attached to Jack Selby, a young sulor, and t hrown into prison, but by the exertions of Torn Price, a detec- tive, is released. The doctor's laboratory is fitted up with electrical plant, and the doctor entraps Sam Slivers and Alice Thornaby to his room, and he electrocutes Sam Slivers in sight of the audience, in otner words, the doctor causes Sam Sliver's death by electricity. The horror of the situation is followed up by the doctor leading Alice Thorn- aby to the vault under the house, where she sees the Cabinet of Death, and fain's at the sight of her father's and two otner heads without their bodies. Jus ice is triumphant when Tom Pr.ce and his colleagues find out who is really the man with- out a face. Better artist-s could not be found to interpret the various characters. Next vve-k, another sensational drama entitled, The Trad of the Serpent," which includes magnificent scenery and dresses, and a thrilling scene, where a young lady is lifted fifteen feet in the air by the aid of a steam crane, and lowered into a fiery furnace will be performed. GEORGE F. HASKINS, Upholsterer and Polisher, 60, Main-street, Cadoxton-Barry. All kind of Furniture made and re-made to order. Dining and Drawing Room Suites re-covered from 35s.

JUBILEE CELEBRATIONS.—To do this right Royally, the System must sustain a certain amount of loss in tone, energy, and vigour, and, consequently, unfit to face the real battle of life which follows the fun. But never de-piir, for a (lose or two of H ipkins' Fledth Saline will put you right again. Try it for yourselves. We confidently recommend it as a cooi ng, refreshing, and invigora- ting preparation in 6d and Is Packets, of W. R. Hopkins, Pharmaceutical Chemist, Barry.

PENRHYN Q IT AERYMEN. SETTLEMENT OF THE DISPUTE. MEN'S TERMS CONCEDED. The Bangor correspondent of the daily papers telegraphed the following on Wednesday morn- ing :—I am in a position to state that the terms of settlement in the Penrhyn Quarry dispute have been definitely decided upon, and have been approved of by Mr Young. They still, however, require formal confirnntion by Lord Penrhyn and by the men, and will be submitted to the latter at a ma-s meeting to be held on Saturday night. The terms are not to be dis- closed till then, but it may be said generally that Lord Penrhvn has conceded all that the men have been contending for.
THE REWARD OF KINDNESS. THEFT AT BARRY DOCK. At Penarth Police court on Wednesday a seaman, named James Nelson, was brought up for stealing two cakes, value 3d, the property of Mr David Rpes, coffee tavern keeper, Barry Dock, early on Wednesday morning. Prisoner went into the tavern at the docks, and after being given a drink of water, took the cakes off the counter, and when he was in the act of con- cealing them prosecutor caught him. Dock- constable Weeks arrested prisoner in Subway- road. Witness had previously seen prisoner bend over the counter and endeavour to open the till. When charged, prisoner said he would have paid for the cakes if he had known that he had the money in his pocket. Prisoner was I sentenced to 14 days' imprisonment with hard labour.
SNAP SHOTS. The family of Lord Windsor frequently visit Whitmore Bay for bathing purposes. The Rev .J. W. Matthews, the late pastor of Bethel Chipel, Court-road, preached at Barry on Sunday. Musicus What decs the defeat of the Merthyr Choir tieaii Cynicus Columns cf nonsense in the daily papers. Y erh. sap. About 30 handers and "warmers" engaged at the Mount Stuart Dry Dock, Cardiff, came out on strike last week. One of the most truly characteristic portraits of Her Majesty the Queen it has ever been our lot to observe appeared in the Ladies Pictorial for last week. Mr Richard Evans, the genialmanager of the Barry Railway Company, is progressing satis- factorily towards recovery after his recent severe illness, Cadvan is intent on a mausoleum for the druids. Perhaps the bardic Wesleyan has get his eye on a few Congregationalists whom he wishes to bury, seeing that they always sweep the b ard. A residence in time saves-- Dr O'Donnell has i ow got a dwelling place on Birry Hand. This beautiful suberb will shortly want a repre- sentative on the District Council. Mr Tennyson Smith wants work, prayer, and faith, but not the faith of the old woman in a car- riage accident, who said that she trusted in Pro i- dence up to the time that the harness broke and then she gave up entirely. The" One-a-Wanting" has been found. The Rev. Daniel J. Phillips, the new American Consul at Cardiff, spent two years as pastor of the Baptist church at Llantwit Major, aud after many years spent in America be returns to his native land. In anticipation of the number of applications down for hearing at the Hrewster Sessions next Wednesday, and also the desire to hear Mr Lloyd George plead for the cause of the prohibitionists, it will be well for the public to -come early and secure their seats." The Goleuad iu a leading article has the following pure and idiomatic Welsh :—"Yr oedd swn crack yn lleisiau, a ring siiieerily yn ngeiriau, pob un o'r brodyr wrth roddi derbyniad iddi." This reminds one of the proceedings cf the Barry Cymru Fydd Suciety during the last session. "Have you any more witnesses ?" enquired the mngistra-es of a defendant at the Barry Dock Police Court last Friday. No, sir, only my conscience," was the curt reply. Of course, Mr Conscience is never allowed to speak in a court of Jaw, for Mr Redtape cannot toletate him. Rumour hath it that Major Wyndham-Quin M.P., is about to occupy a country residence nea Wenvoe. In order to provide the gallant gentle- mall with amusement when the seat will be taken from him by Alderman W. H. Morgan, we sincerely hope that there is an extensive tract of game pre- serves, so that he can hide himself for a time It takes a Radical to do the right thing always. Mr T. J. Hughes, Bridgend, proposed the resolution at the meeting of the tenantry of the Dunraven Estate that Lady Rachel Wyndham-Quiu, daughter of the Earl of Dunraven, should be made the recipient of a valuable present on the occasion of her approaching marriage. Barry Licensing Session rumours completely overwhelm us It is not true that Mr E. Jones, Central Stores, Holton-road, is going to apply for a license, for he is now selling an exuberating and deliciously-flavoured tea that both temperance folk and drunkards can eujoy without the same evil results as from the cup that inebriates." A Barry man t >11 Mr Tennyson Smith on Sunday night that Christ mixed with publicans and siuuers, aud why shouldn't they ? The difference between the tax-gathering publicans of those days and the beer-sellmg man of the present time was not known to our pretentious Young combatant, and the congregation laughed heartily at his contretemps. Messrs AVard, Lock, and Co. have just issued a Welsh edition of Coulsou Kernahan's charming volume entitled "God and the Ant." The trans- lator is Mr J. Brython Hughes, a regular contributor to TrysorfaW Plant and other maga- zines. The translation is a faithful one, and the volume is of a class that always commends itse'f to the Welsh mind. It is to be hoped that the enterprising publishers may be enabled to again venture on simil r undertakings. Their first pro- duction is admirable in every respect. Since Fluellen caused the Saxon to swallow the leek, many more have been made to do the same thing. The Internatioual Rugby Football Board are now doing the same tiling over the Gould testi- monial, and have admitted that, although an act of professionalism has been committed, forsooth, they will allow Mr Gould to play under the circum- s<tanees. Oh resolute (?) Board, we now believe that the only fear last year was that Wales, having beaten E gland, would have won the triple crown in the International games Honest, honest Board There is no doubt that, with the impetus afforded by recent triumphs, musical matters will be greatly advanced in the district in the coming winter months. A choir is about to be formed in connec- tion with Bethesda Welsh Iudependent Chapel, Barry, for the purpose of performing Haydn's Creation." ^Jr D Farr has consented to set as conductor, and as some eisteddfodic stars will he engaged, in addition to a powerful orchestra, we confidently anticipate a treat. A hf'a.ty invitation is extended vocalists to join the choir, the first practice to take place on Sunday evening. "Water is Free" sends the following metrical contrivance for insertion, which has the merit of being enthusiastic whilst not b iug, from a rhyth- mical point of view, correct. Let him enter the bardic circle. This is his lay Mr Tennyson Smith is on the lay," And now we shan't be long," And temp'rance folk are having great sway, They all are going strong The interests of brewers and clubites, too, Are doomed to exposure thro' and through, And it'll be done with a vengeance, too, And now they won't be long. His mission was opened with pomp and pride, For now we shan't be long, And at once brought hundreds or to his side, And then we shan't be long There are hundreds of wrongs that want redress, And previous failures that now promise success, For Tennyscu Smith we're sure to bless, Because he won't be long.

SEVERN BRIGADE SUBMARINE MINERS. INSPECTION IN BARRY ISLAND "CAMP. The annual inspection of the Severn Brigade Submarine Miners in infantry drill and field exercise took place at the encampment on Barry Island on Thursday week last, the inspecting officer being Colonel Gosset, commander of the Royal Engineers for the South Wales District. The parade ground was visited by a large number of people in the course of the drill, the whole battalion being taken through the com- pany drill by Colonel Thornley, the officer in command, the various companies being drilled by their respective officers. Colonel Gosset subsequently visited the lines, :ind closely inspected the whole, a most searching examin- ations being conducted, and he was generally pleased with the whole arrangements of the camp. The officers subsequently entertained the inspecting officer at luncheon at the Marine Hotel. The officers in camp, besides Colonel Thornley, were Captains H. T. Thornley and J. Arthur Hughes, Lieutenants Caple, Hooper, Evans, Spickett, azid Quartermaster Newman, Surgeon-Captaius Rees and Edwards, and Cautain Giddy, adjutant. The work performed during last week chiefly comprised laying mines between Barry roads aud the Lsland, but the weather experienced was not very favourable, but for ordinary camping ideal weather has been experienced. The men were all in good health and spirits, and their behavour was quite exemplary, not a single case of drunkenness having been brought before the commanding officer. The camp broke up on Saturday last when the men left Barry Island at 11.30 for Cardiff and home.
