I understand he is supposed devote the whole of his time to the duties of his See. Why, then, does he live in Cardiff, unless irry is not good enough a place fof him to livr ?

SIR,—Mr Parry Richards' letter in your contem- porary of 10th inst. mentioning the amusing, though grievous, bit of mendacity put forward in order to Becure Mr R. T. Evaus' appointment to the Clive- road School no doubt will be read with mingled feelings of loathing and disgust by a great number of the public of Barry who knew Mr Norria and are aware of the countless instances in which he gave the benefit of those splendid talents he possessed to his scholars and the public at large. The unassuming way in which he imparted portions of that wonderful store of learning to each and all alike, his eagerness to assist any struggling scholar, and the many other devoted acts he did to benefit his fellow-men, are only known to a com- parative few. But this called forth that envy, jealousy, and implacable hatred from the handful of would-be powerful persons, who would have encompassed his ruin, but for the intervention of upwards of 700 upright, honest, and influential ratepayers of Barry. Many enquiries have been made as to whether Mr Norris and his assistant masters and mistresses received the few pounds of hard-earned salary which the Governors of the County School so spite- fully withheld from them I say spitefully because it could not be thiough any concern the School authorities of Barry hold for the ratepayers pockets, for when one comes to ponder over the facts of the recent appointment of the Clerk to the School Board, when there was already a highly enterprising and talented gentleman doing practi- cally the whole of the work required for that office, and moreover was ready, I undersiand, to con- tinue to do so at a slightly increased salary, ODe is frone to draw conclusions to the opposite.— remain, &c.. GEORGE MASON. 8, Wenvoe Terrace, Barry, 15th November, 1899. P.S.—No doubt the public has read with alarm of the proposed resignation of Dr O'Donnell from the School Board. It is sincerely to be hoped that he may be induced to reconsider his decision.—G.M.
TEMPERANCE MEETING IN BARRY. THE WORK OF THE FREE CHURCH COUNCIL. On Tuesday evening last a very successful temperance meeting was held at Tabernacle Welsh Congregational Church, Barry Duck, under the presidency of the Rev Aaron Davie3, D D Among those present were several ministers of the district, including the Revs. T. Pandy John, L. Ton Evans, J. E. Jenkins, W. D Lee Cann, Ben Evans, (pastor of the Tabernacle), Tertius Phillips (U.K.A., Cardiff), and Messrs J. Cruise, b. B. Jones, W. J. Flowers, and J. P. Panniers. The Barry Temperance Choir attended and gave several well-known and well-rendered selections during the evening. The meeting opened with a read- ing scripture by the pastor (Rev B. Evans after which Rev W. D. Lee Cann delivered a strong and stirring address on the evil surrounding the inhabitants of the district and the best means of combating the same. Mr J. Cruise delivered a report on the late licensing sessions and the work done by the temperance party in the district. After describing in detail the work done, the report snowed that the cost of engl-lging legal assistance to support their cause bad been JE60. The result had been successful, and out of 15 applications for new licenses, only two were granted, and those were quashed at Cardiff. At the cbse of bis report, Mr Cruise proposed the following resolution:- That this meeting rejoices in the fact that no new licence has been granted this year for the gale of driuk and further, that it wishes to ex- its gratitude to God that the district has been mpreifully spared from another and an additional source of misery, poverty, and crime, which are already appal, ing in our midst. The Rev L. Ton Evans seconded this in a lengthy and inspiring address, and the Rev. J. Tertius Phillips supported.—The resolution was then carried unanimously.—Mr S. R. Jones proposed votes of thanks to the chairman, the choir, and the pastor and deacons of Tabernacle for the kind loan of the chapel, which Mr J. P Panniers seconded, and this also was heartily approved.—Finally a hearty vote of thanks was tent to Councillor Henry Robinson, Cardiff, fllr the noble stand made by him before the Cardiff Watch Committee. t',

BOER COMMANDER, DEAD. A BLOW FOR THE BOERS. LONDON, Thursday. A message has been received here from Laffatt, at Durham, giving publicity to a rumour, generally credited at that place, that General Joubert, chief of the Boer forces, has been killed in Thursday's engagement at Ladysrnith. The greatest excitement prevails respecting the telegram, and its confirmation is eagerly sought at the War Office by hundreds of people this morning, because, if true, the news contains one of the hardest blows yet dealt to the enemy.
FOOTBALL NOTES. [BY "ATHLETE."] On Saturday a match between the Unionists and Newpoit was much aided and hindered by the caprice of a high wind. ♦ # • The points scored by Thursby and Sheldon were both, without flattery, the result of the nicest judgment, coupled with the greatest amount of animal force. Barry certainly deserved to win, and their score of two goals to one indicate a tough fight. Then opponents were not mean ones, and their play little inferior to that of the home team. < m Newport certainly deserved their goal, and throughout played in the most scientific and entlemanly manner. Rees was the star of the Usk team, and shot like a meteor. • Jacky Thomas smartened up wonderfully before the close of the game, and was several times pitted against Rees, who happens to be a few feet taller, and a smart man to b iot. However, he came ou- of the encounter with credit to himself, and although only a reserve, like the reserves on their way to the front, he meat to win or die. 0 • Talking of the Reserves, reminds me that three of the Newport team go out next week to the front. They are Rees, Stevenson, and Blick, who all belong to the 4th Mounted Mule Battery, now stationed at Newport. Good fortune go with them, and may they fight gloriously for England (and Waies), and may they yet take their share in many a well-fought field at home. ♦ Other local matches played on Saturday were the Barry Old Boys v. Cadoxton United, at the Palmerstown Field. In the first half Cad, ,xton were leading by one goal to nil, the goal being scored by M. ilowrie. During the latter half, however, W. Edmouds and J. Martin scored for the Old Boys. The wretched state of the ground interfered much with the game, and prevented Cadoxton from adding to their score. There was a great deal of ill-feeling between the players too, owing, I am told, to the intense jealously among the junior teams. The spirit of rivalry, especially in sport, is honourable, but jealously and ill-feeling make a man or boy contemptable in their own eyes. • A slogging match was played between tho Cad- oxton United Seconds and the Barry Crescents, when the Turks were beaten by 13 goals to 3, not- withstanding the fact that the beaten team were much the heavier. The Rugby game was played at Dinas Powis on Saturday between the local team and Cowbridge. The homesters scored three goals three tries, against one try put in by Cowbridge. The two tries scored by D. Thomas and H. Beer were mag- nificent efforts, the former being scorcd from the 25 line, and the latter from the half-way. The Powis men w ho scored were Fred Davies, tw o tries W. Coombes, one try D. Thomas and H. Beer, two tries each. SOUTH WALES & MONMOUTHSHIRE LEAGUE (1ST & 2ND DIVISION.) DIVISION I.

BARRY DOCK CAISSON. The caisson connecting the No. 1 Dock with Dock No. 2 on Wednesday morning became dis- abled owing to the cracking of the wheel round which the steel wire, for the purpose of opening and closing the bridge, is wound. Communication by the bridge was thus cut off and traffic, which is almost wholly pedestrian and railway, was for a time stopped. At length a steam ferry was started, and will be continued day a,nd night until the bridge is repaired. The road is a great highway to the Island, and the accident is sure to cause great inconvenience.

BARRY DEBATING SOCIETY WIf-DOM: ANCIENT AND MODERN. One of the most instructive and entertaining meetings ever held by this Society was that of Monday evening last, when Dr. Gillon Irving gave a paper on Wisdom: Ancient and Modern." Throughout the genial doctor spoke without notes, and covered a vast field of history and research. After defining wisdom as the possession of knowledge, Dr. Irving passed on to divide the periods under review: (1) The time before the burning of the Library at Alexandria, then from that time to the Rennaisance; and from that moment to the present time the literature, music, art, sciences, and philosophies of each period were touched upon. In some respects the present age was not in possession < f many secrets known to the ancients. Doubtless many of these were lost during the burning of the library at Alexandria but the present age was not bebiud, whatever clever engineers existed then, and their works could be seen on the desert in Egypt, and on the banks of the Nile. There were as clever engineers living to-day. Proceeding, the doctor said the conditions of life were changed. r Among the ancients knowledge was confined to the priests and the law; to-day nearly every one could read and write. Viewing the contrasts between the eastern and western people, they were better than the ancients all round. A very profitable discussion followed, opened by a humourous, yet sensible speech from Mr Harry S. Thomas, who touched upon the swearing among the children of the Barry district. In this they were not so advanced as the ancients, whose children were nt t educated so early and did not learn to swear so soon. This roused Mr Biss, of the school professon, who very ably defended the teaching, and showed the root of the swearing evil to be in the home life of the children.—Speeches by Messrs Burgess, T. Thomas, J. W. Jones, and W. Graham, who defined wisdom as the appli- cation of knowledge. Mr Graham was not so optimistic as the doctor. He touched upon in- stances in his own travel, in illustration of the fact that they were not so advanced as the ancients. One instance in particular, where in splendid style he described a visit to Maskelyne and Cook's Hall of Mystery in London, and saw feats of skill and illusion which could be explained; but in Bombay, upon the deck of a ship he had by a Hindoo seen things which had not and could not be explained. Mr Graham's speech reminded one of the early days of, the present Liberal Association, and the late local parliment where he shone so well. A neat summing up by Mr J. O. Davies from the chair and the usual vote of thanks to the doctor, very heartily endorsed by the appreciative company, brought tbe proceedings to a close.-Next week will provide a very debatable subject Character of Queen Elizabeth Is it worthy of admiration." Mr Herbert Hick will take the alternative, and Mr Tom Davies, York Stores, the negative.

The total number of pupils in the technical instruction and evening continuation classes was 930, and the fees received amounted to £ 81 8s 2d. Mr John Morgan was appointed instructor in the rope splicing class to be formed if a suffi- ciently large number of pupils could be induced to join, and premises had been secured opposite the Central Police station. It was also decided to write to Captain Davies and Mr Lowdon for a supply of ropes, &c. The classes commence next Saturday. A letter was read from Prof. Thompson, deputy principal of the University College, Cardiff, in answer to the one written by the Committee in July last. The Chairman ex- plained that the Committee then wanted to know what would be charged by the University if the Committee sent a pupil for a full training with the object of obtaining a degree in science or art. A circular was received from the County Council containing reports oi the various results of the different classes of the evening schools of the county. The circular commends several manual instruction students at Barry.
BARRY DOCK ACCIDENT HOSPITAL. THE INCOME DIFFICULTY. A meeting of the Executive Committee of the Barry District Nursing Association was held at the Accident Hospital, Kingsland-crescent, Barry Dock, ou Thursday evening last, Dr. Neal?, J.P., presiding. There were also present Mrs Dr. Powell, Mrs Sibering Jones, Major- General Lee, J.P., Dr. O'Donnell, and Councillor E. B. Smith-Jones. The report of the Lady Superintendent (Sister Sykes) showed that during the month there were remaining on the books of the Accident Ward 4 cases, dismissed 8, total 12; discharged convalescent, 5; relieved 2, remaining in 5. For the Nursing Association 49 cases were on the books, 42 applications, 29 convalescent cases, deaths 5, discharged 5. remaining in 52. —The Secretary's report for the District Council was read, as published in the Press, and a dis- cussion ensued. The Secretary explained, in answer to General Lee, that the Coupcil thought the Ward was much beiter managed by the Nursii g Association than it would have been by the Council, and for that reason they declined to take it over. The opinion was expressed that the Ward could not be carried on for £ 550, and Councillor Smith-Jones said that as the public works were rapidly nearing completion, the necessity for the hospital would grow less. —The Chairman did not think that suggestion worth ct)nsi., eration. -General Lee suggested that a letter be written to the Council asking if they were ready to make good any expendi- ture in excess of their income, as they could not possibly carry on the Ward with the present income.—Councillor Smith-Jones said the Finance Committee had expressed themselvas willing to guaranteee any over-expenditure.— The Chairman proposed that that be done. Dr O'Donnell seconded, and it was unanimously agreed to.—The Secretary reported that the Amalgamated Society of Railway Servants had formed a committee for the purpose of con- sidering their making a subscription to the Ward.—A letter was read from the Ministers' Fraternal Association expressing displeasure that the Nursing Association countenanced a Sunday demonstration by the Friendly Societies in aid of the Nursing Association. It was pointed out that the Association was in no way responsible for the demonstratin. In refer- ence to the poor collections in aid of the Association from the churches of the district- last year they amounted to only about £ 30— Councillor Smith-Jones suggested that a letter be sent to the Executive Committee of the Free Church Council, but it was pointed out that this had already been done.—Mr J. Prout, builder, Tynewydd-road, Barry Dock, offered to fill the ground surrounding the new Nurses Home with soil free of charge, and received the thanks of the committee. — 1 he overdraft at the bank was reported to be £1,001 2s 2d.
DEATH OF MRS. E. REES, BARRY DOCK. After a protracted illness, the death occurred on Friday evening last, at her residence, 184. Holton- road, Barry Dock, of Mrs R.,becca Rees, the beloved wile of Ex-inspector Edward Rees, for- merly of the Glamorgan police force. The deceased lidy and her family are well-known and highly respected in the town, where they have resided fur many years, and the greatest sympathy is expressed towards the bereaved iu their sorrow. The deceased was 57 years of age at the time of her death, and had been, through a long illness, the constant care of her two daughters, w ho have been devotedly attending to her every need with con- siderable kindness and attention. The funeral took place on Tuesday last at St. Audrews' Churchyard, and was attended by a L'rge number of the townspeople, fellow members of Be I el Eng ish P;ebyterian Church, C"Urt-r"ad. a d a large number of members ot the Gl 'inorurm con- stabulary, inclu Hng Superintendent J.

S AP SHOTS. Basry's new rate has been fixed at Is 6d in the £ The Barry Glee Society give a concert in Decem- ber nett in aid of the Nursing Association. There is a policeman at Barry who claims ac- quaintanceship with Her Majesty the Queen. Both the Mayor of Droitwich (Mr R. P. Culley) and Councillor S. A. Brain (mayor of Cardiff) are closely connect. d with the. trade at Barry. A concert on the 22nd inst and an eisteddfod on the 26th December will be held at the Romilly Hall. A house agent estimates that the number of houses empty at present in Cadoxton and Barry Dock i& 1,200 Last year there was collected in the various churches in the district in aid of the Nursing Association £35, JE4 or f5 of which was oollected in Dinas Powis. A rope-splicing class has been started by the Barry Technical Instruction Committee, which will commence work in the buildings opposite the Police-station, Holton-road, on Saturday next. It is a fact that one of the female residents in one of the back stieets of the district the other night determined to have a blanketty blauk boose on account of the near approach of the world's end. The Theatre Royal, Barry East, have during the week been collecting for the local reservists' fund, and a sum of about 30s, the result of the sale of a song composed by a member cf the company at present playing there, will at the eud of the week be handed to the treasurer of the fund. A large number of the newspaper publications in Great Britain have been requested to forwaid specimens of their sheets for exhibition in the British section of the Paris Exposition. Messrs W. H. Smith and Son are the agents, and the BARRY HKRALD will be sported in the gay Capital of la belle France Last Saturday our gloomy-faced, long-visaged reporter walked sadly into the Cardiff Workhouse, where he wandtred about aimlessly, taking a melancholy pleasure in his surroundings, He was not quite destitute, and the only cause of his going there was the fact that Farr was near." The Cardiff Workhouse concert was a huge success, and was thoroughly enjoyed by those for whom it was given. The Barry men acquitted themselves, of course, in a highly satisfactory manner and seeing that the Society is composed mainly of workiug men, the thanks of all right- thinking people are due to them in their effort to lighten the burden of God's creatures. The District Council's officials have a large amount of faith in the honesty of human nature as it walks about the streets. The reason for this observation is that there is placed near the door in the reading-room at Barry a stand for the recep- tion of umbrellas and walking sticks. No one could possibly have a more implicit faith in our goodness than the man who makes a proper use of that stand, places his umbrella in it, and on returning ifnds it gone From an Old Smoker, abstaining from tobacco for twelve months, £ 5." The foregoing is one of the subscriptions announced in a northern daily, the object of the subscription being the aid of the Reservists' families. There is a modest and genuine ring about that non deplume, if it may be so called, the sender being virtuously content to keep his name in the background, and place in its stead a little moral advice (figuratively) which is less likely of being extensively followed in this un-Spartan. like age. Although the Market Hall was well filled on the occasion of the visit of the Welsh Ladies' Choir, the weather undoubtedly prevented many from attending, and thus the object for which the concert was held, the liquidating the debt on the St. Mary's Church, has not been accomplished. Another effort, with that end, is to be m. de, ;,nll all Sunday evening the curate (Rev H. S. Frank Wil iams) asked the members to heartily co operate inanther entertainment, the nature of which has not yet been decided on, but which, it is hoped, will be held before Christmas. Our office star-gazer was interviewed this morn- ing on his recent experiences during two nights of anxious watching. As the clock struck four this morning (he said) I thought I saw a twinkle as of a meteor. [He has forgotton the word 'star.'] I Ian towards it, but it was a policeman standing ou the bridge ab ve the road on which I was walk- ing towards the dock." He now believes that that policeman is the only star seen in Barry. Twinkle, twinkle little meteor. It would take a lot to beat yer, Up upon the bridge so high, Like a thing I've in my eye, A Star Now I see you'r a policeman fair, With shaggy mien and curly hair, I know not why you'r on this street, Because you'r plainly by your feet, A Policeman. No OR YES ?—It is not pleasant to feel despon- dent and low-spirited, nor to feel bilious and have pains in the back. Is there a way to move this unpleasant feeling? YES, there is; experience teaches that OWEN'S CERTAIN PILLS will totally remove above complaints surely and effectually. Have you tried them ?—Depot OWEN, Chemist, Cadoxton.
MADE IN AMERICA. TRIAL OF A NEW ENGINE. RETURNED TO THE HOSPITAL. The engineerifig world are doubtless casting wistful glances towards Barry. This is naturally expected in view of the fact that the Barry Rail- way Company have just received the five new locomotives from America, which were going to startle the mechanic-d world on account of their cheapness, utility, and despatch. One of the five engines have beeu erected at the locomotive yard under the superintendence of a representative of the manufacturers, who has travelled over to s< e tuat they accomplish their guaranteed speed. This engine was atiaelitd to ihe passenger service on Monday last, and whether it has proved satis- factory to the officials it would be difficult trJ state, but the fact remains-aild it speaks for itself—'hat that engine has already been back in the repairing shed, if it is not their still.

Howland-of the Rev Rees Goring Morris ("f Llanelly, Carmarthenshire), and Miss Augusta Helen Kloisa Irwin, daughter of Captain James Strachan Irwin, R. N., of Southsea. The bride, who was given away by her brother, Mr George Irwin, was attired in rich ivory ducbesse satin, with petticoat of accordion-pleated chiffon frills, edged with tiny ruches of the same, and pointed over-skirt of satin, very handsomely embroidered with silver and pearls. The bodice was daintily draped with lace and long chiffon ends, falling down from the shoulder, fastened with orange blossoms, the yolk and sleeves being of transparent silk guipure. The Court tiain was of satin, with a corner caught with large knots of chiffon and orange blossoms. The bridesmaids were the Misses Molly Morris and Dora Rowland, nieces of- the bridegroom. Their costumes conisted of White Japanese silk dresses, trimmed with lace, and bats to match, with touches of yellow, and they carried shower bouquets of yellow chrysanthemums. They wore pearl and gold initial brooches, gifts of the bridegroom. The best man was Dr. Sixsmith, of Barry. Mr Westcott, the oiganist of the church, presided at the organ, and played the Bridal March from Lohengrin as the bride entered the church. The combined choirs of St. Michael and All Angles' and St. K., hi- rines's sang "The voice that breathed o'er Eden while the bride and the bridegroom kflelt at the altar steps. Mr Brierley, the- Cathedral tenor, sang, Be ye faithful" while the bride and bridegroom were in the vestry. Mr Westcott played the Wedding March ai the happy pair left the church. After the ceremony a reception was held at the Queen's Hotel, Clifton, where (in the unavoidable absence, through illness, of Mrs Thomas Cousins, the bride's sister) the guests were received by Mrs Evans (wife of the vicar). Later in the after- noon the happy pair left fcr Weymouth, en route for the Channel Islands, where the honey- moon will be spent. The bride's travelling costume consisted of navy blue tight-fitting coat aud skirt, with white silk blouse, and large white velvet hat, trimmed with black velvet and tips and paste buckles, and silver fox muff and tippett. Among the guests were the Rev K. and Miss Morris (brother and niece of the bridegroom), Mr George Irwin (brother of the bride), the Rev B. M. and Mrs Rowland (nephew and niece of the bridegroom), Mr and Miss R. es (nephew and niece of the bridegroom), the Rev E. and Mrs Evans, Mr C.

ALD. MEGGITT AND AMERICA. WELCOME HOME BY THE DISTRICT COUNCIL. Prior to the Press being asked to retire, in accordance with the invariable custom of the Barry District Council for the transaction of business, the Chairman (Councillor J. H. Jose) at the last meeting, held on Monday evening took advantage of the opportunity to conoratu- !ate A1fjerman Meggitt upon his safe Return home after his sojourn in Cousin Jonathan's l*nd. I bey to see him once more at their meetings seated at the table, after havina gained renewed health and strength. & Alderman Meggitt said he thanked the Chairman very much for his kind words, and said it gave him equal pleasure to be back at home among all his old associations It had not been exactly a holiday for him in America It had been very hard work going about from place to pl-ce-in fact, he did not think he evei w. rked harder. He had seen a creat deal, and L would have liked to have his colleagues with him to see the wonderful sights. They were simply marvellous, and he returned with larger mdeas, from which he hoped to benefit. Possibly, at some future time, he might, have an opportunity of dealing with the city work and city life of America, if it would be of in- terest to the members. There were several things in which America was far ahead of this country, but there was a reverse side of that, iu the corruption that was, undoubtedly, Toing on to an enormous extent in America. It was a great consolation to him to find that in this country, especially in this town, they were free from any taiut of that kind. (Hear, hear.)
