Since my children have been going to school, I have suffered untold misery on account of their heads. Do what I may, I could not keep them clean. I have cried myself to sleep at nights with the annoyance, but now I use HAGON'S CLEANSER once a vveek-after their bath, and dip the brush in it when I dress their hair daily. There has been no more trouble, and their hair is glossy and strong." My little girl has very fair hair, and was much troubled with nits, &c., but since using HAGON S CLKANSER I have never seen any sign of live stock, and her hair is lovely." GOLDEN HAIR. "I have used HAGON'S CLEANSER con- stantly for my girls, and they now have beautiful golden hair in such great abun- dance that strangers s,top in the street to ''Y1he them." V F SCRAGGY HAIR. I have three children-two girls and a boy. The boy has strong, healthy hair always, but the two girls'hair used to come out coombsfull at a time, and what they kept was soragay and weak. I have used HAGON'S CLEANSER for six months now, and their hair is much longer, stronger, and brighter. I could hardly have hoped for such success. MOTHERS. have written the above in their letters to me. One says she would rather pay a sovereign a bottle than be compelled to do without HAGON'S CLEANSR now.

OVERDUE BARRY VESSEL SAFE. THE CAPTAIN LOST. A cablegram received in Belfast on Tuesday from Prunta Arenas, Straits of Magellan, reports that the Belfast ship Duntrune, 184 days out from Barry Dock, and upon which 75 guineas per cent insur- ance had been paid, has arrived at Punta Arenas. She was dismasted in a gale off Cape Pillar, during which the captain was swept overboard and drowntd. Captain Winterton, the master was a native of the North of Ireland, and was well-known ia shipping eiroles.
Friday, November 24th, rSgV. LOCAL TAXATION. EVEN the din and stir of arms in South Africa cannot overcome the faint warning notes of the coming General Election. Attentive politicians say it is approaching very closely, and doubtless the righteous judgment of the country will be pronounced upon this Government of all the gifts which is tottering to its fall. It is an open secret that Liberal leaders would have been during this autumn busily engaged in promoting I sound, healthy opinion upon the burning question of the taxation of land values but for the present war in Natal. Southport, North West Lanark, and the two Edinburghs showed plainly enough how great has been the rally of progressive opinion upon this reform. It is our duty now to make the subject not one of mere phrases, but one that is understood. All that is wanted is Taxation of Land Values." It has been suggested that a system of local death duties might act as a substitute for relieving the burden of the rates somewhat in muni- cipal centres, and the author of "The Great Problems of our Great Towns has warned us of this recently. Then those who ad- vocate the division of rates between owner and occupier as a step towards the taxation of land values do not realise that the strength of the ease for reform lies in the demonstration that rateable value is an unjust basis for local taxation. To divide the rates, and leave unreformed the basis upon which they are levied, will not help much. If the incidence of the rates depends as it certainly does to a large extent, upon the basis upon which they are levied, there is reason to fear that the ultimate incidence of the divided rates will not, in the long run, be greatly altered by the division. The only sure way of reaching the owner of land values is to assess land values separately, and to base the tax upon the assessment. This is what 557 delegates, many of them from great rating authorities, asked for, a m onth ago, at Glasgow. And this is what we want the next Parliament to give. LORD TWKDMOUTH said some very sensible words about the war at Islington the other evening, when he declared the best thing the Government could do was to bring hos- tilities to an end as speedily as possible. Liberalism is agreed to give Ministers all the help they can, both in money and material. But while doing this it must be distinctly understood that our party reserve its right to criticise and, if necessary, con- demn her Majesty's present Government for the policy which led in the first instance to the outbreak of this dreadful war. We must also be free to exercise independent criticism-at the proper time-as the method in which operations are conducted. Then, when settlement comes into sight, we shall have a serious watching duty in the direction of restraining Jingoism. The maxim laid down by Loid Tweedmouth in this respect is a sound one, equal rights for all men, be they British or Dutch."
CONCERT AT LLANCARFAN. SCHOOL CHILDREN'S ANNUAL ENTER- TAINMENT. On Friday evening last the scholars of the Llaa" carfan Board School entertained a packed audience at the sehoolroom. This is an event which creates a considerable amount of interest in Llaucarfan and the surrounding district. Under the careful and efficient training of Mr Davies (master) and Miss Armstrong (assistant-mistress), the entertain- ment is looked forward to as the treat of the season. The entertainment on Friday night was no exception to the rule, the various items of the programme being admirably gone through. Un- stinted praise is due to Mr Davies and Miss Arm- strong for the patience and perseverance they must have bestowed in so excellently training the little ones. The children, who all looked in the Eink of health, bearing the rosy cheek of country loom, presented a very neat appearance, and a word of praise is due to the parents for taking such pains in dressing the little ones for the occ&sion. The meeting was ably presided over by Mr Price, Llanbethery. After a few remarks by the Chair- man, Master J. Llewelyn Davies opened the pro- ceedings by a short introductory speech. The infant class then delivered the follow ing :—Chorus, The Chinaman" recitation, Our Troubles a game, "The See-Saw"; action song, "Ten little mothers"; solos and chorus, The Coster- mongers song, "I don't want to play in your backyard," by Mary James and Annie Edwards; action song, The Japanese farm. The infants having dispensed with their little programme, the older scholars commenced very heartily in deliver- ing an item of their programme, entitled The Laughing Song humorous trio, The three beggars," by R. Evans, Idris and Glyn Davies; dialogue, Of A Transformation"; action song, "JhonnySchmoker." A short interval now took place, during which each child was presented with a bun, which they all seemed to heartily appre- ciate. Part 2 of the programme was then proceeded with, which consisted of the following The sneezing song," in the form of a chorus action •eng, '• Eight, little constables song, When we were girls, you know," by C. Hopkins, R. Edwards, B. Lewis, and A. M. Jones; duett, You mus't Alice and J Llewelyn Davies drill, "The pole d, ill," eight girls; recitation, "Why I can't give a recitation," Jei kin John; action no, g, The tali top hat," eight b ys song alii; cb.. rus, When uames in council meet," six pirls; cllaracler song, D.ctllli Three," Jenkin John, Aithur L uglio,, and J. Ll. Davies chorus, The Juvenile Brigade," school children. The programme now being brought to a close, Mr Davies proposed a hearty vote of thanks to the ciiairman, which was seeonded by Mr Griffitlia.- Mr Griffithfl suitably responded.—A vote of thanks, proposed by Mr Price and seconded by the Rev A. J. Hughes, was also accorded to Mr Davies and Mil's Armstrong.-Mr Davies. in responding, asked everyone to remain in the room. He said he thought it was the duty of everyoue to do so, bearing in mind the great crisis through which our country was now passing, and he asked the audience to unite loyally, as Englishmen and Welshman, in heartily siuging God Save the Qneen." Altogether a most enjoyable evening was spent. Miss Edith L. Davies proved an excellent accompanist* Nearly f8 were taken at the door, which is to be devoted towards purchasing prizes for the school childien.

BARRY SCHOOL BOARD. MEETING OF THE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE. The Management Committee of the Barry School Board held a meeting on Thursday in 1 >8t week, under the presidency of Mr John London, J.P., when the other members present were-Captain R. Davies, Rev W. Williams, Drs O'Donnell and Lloyd Edwards, Messrs John Rees, D. Lloyd, and Peter Wright. SALARIES. It was agreed, on the suggestion of the Chair- man, that the clt-rk should investigate all cases of third division certificated teachers, to see whether they would be entitled to an increase under the new scale.—Mr John Rees Now you mention the matter ot salaries, and have allowed discussion on the matter, I wish to call attention to the case of Miss Llewellyn, of Holton-road Infants. I think we might do well- The Chairman Are you going to give notice of motion to rescind the reso- lution of the Board ?—Mr Rees No, I think Miss Llewellyn is fully entitled to her £ 5 increase.— The Chairman That came before the Board.—Rev W. Williams I think our head-teachers get quite enough.—The Chairman These are matters of the it)terpretation of the scale; that's all. —Mr John Rees My interpretation is that she ought to get 1:5 that's all.—The Chairman You can give notice of motion to advance it at the next Board meeting.—Mr Rees Well, 1 do so now. THE CLXRK 18 SALARY. Dr O'Donnell I have noticed on the minutes of the last report of the Finance Committee there is one months' salary for the clerk, who was paid his full ealary for October, although he was appointed on the 5th, to commence on the 16th.—The Cleik said, in reply, that Mr Lewis (the late clerk) said that it would simplify matters if he continued his duties for a week after, and if the salary was paid from the 1st of the month.—The Chairman Mr Lewis has waived his right to the additional salary. -Dr O'Donnell I don't see that. Mr Lewis's salary was only 9150 a year.—The Chairman It is a matter for the Finance Committee.—Dr O'Donnell: I give notice of motion to call the Board's attention to it at the next meeting. WHICH IS THE POCKET? The architect of Hannah-street Schools having recommended that the pavement be laid in front of the building, Mr J. C. Pardoe, surveyor to the District Council, wrote, in reply to a previous letter of the Board, stating that the work would be curried out if left as soon as the sanction of the Local Government Board had been received to borrow money for that purpose; but no inquiry having been held, he did not see how it could be done within three months at least.—Dr O'Donnell suggested that the Board do it themselves, but the Vice-chairman supported the view that it be left to the District Council to carry out.—Dr O'Donnell moved a resolution in accordance with his sugges- tion, and this was seconded by Dr Lloyd-E lwaids. —The Vice-chairman movtd as an amendment that it be It-ft for the District Cuuncit, and the voting being equal, the Chairman gave his casting vote in favour of the motion. TEACHERS. Miss Alice Lewis wrote stating that she was en- tilled to a rise of JE5 this year, and it being pointed out that the omission of her increase was a clerical error, this was ordered to be rectified.M Liss "Lewis, another teacher, wrote asking that inasmuch as there was an increased salary if she got the Phroebel Certificate, how much would she receive in the event of failure? (Laughter.)-The Chair- man We can consider that question in the event of failure." She will be put on the untrained scale. THE PRICE OF COAL. Mr S. Griffiths wrote stating that it would now be impossible, in the face of the greatly increased price of eoal, to supply the contract of the Board at the price he had previously quoted—17s 6d a ton—and he now wished to be paid 19s 6d, and an advance of Is for every Is advanced in future.— The Vice-chairman We must get the supply at the price and :of the quality stated in the contract. If not, we have our remedy.— It was agreed to write to Mr Griffiths to that effect. MAGIC LANTERNS. Mr Whitehouse wrote stating that he proposed giving magic lantern entertainments monthly, and hoped by this means to raise the percentage for attendance, consequentiy he asked for J61 to cover the expeases of 400 slides which he could procure for that amount. It was agreed to give the amount asked for for the purpose.—Dr O'Donnell: What has become of our magic lauterus in the other schools ? The head-teachers ought to be written to asking them to use them.—This was agreed to. BARR\ ISLAND SCHOOLS. Mr Birkenhead, the architect of these schools, wrote stating that he bad been urging the contrac- tors of these schools on, and wonld do so again. That gentleman also stated that his estimate for the proposed manual instruction room was £252, and not JE270, as he had first made out.—The Chairman It seems expensive.—Mr John Rees Yes, for an experiment.—The Vice-Chairman I suggest that we leave the matter in the hands of the chairman.—This was done.
Peterstone Hedging & Ditching Match HORSE AND ROOT SHOW.

BARRY INDECENCY CASE. BREAK-DOWN AT THE ASSIZES. At the Glamorgan County Assizes on Tuesday. John Lavery (36), a seaman, was indicted for unlawfully and feloniously committing a rape upon Rose Heath, at BArry, on the 14th September. Mr Parses prosecuted, and Mr Hugh Jones defended. Kof>e xleath, who is a married woman. al'e<red th*fc she had gone to the Bassett Arms to fetch supper ''eer, unci on returning, prisoner, a str .nger, took the beer from her and threw her down in the public road. No one witnessed th. assault, but a friend of Heath's, named Maud Evan, stated that she saw Rose H ath in an exhausted condition walking away from the scene of the alleged offence. They saw prisoner a few minutes after- wards, and Evans, seeing a policeman standing near, told Heath to give prisoner in charge "for using her so scandalous." Thereupon prisoner was alleged to have said, If yon don't shut up I will serve him the same." In cross-examination Heath admitted that she was recently ebarged with soliciting, but discharged. Evans, who lives with Heath, said she had got out of bed to go and look for complainant, because she knew she would be frightened on the lonely road. Dr Treharne stated that the complaiuant was brought by the polico to his surgery, and the impression he received from the general examination of her was that no violence had beep used towards her. The jury returned a "Not guilty" veidict without calling upon the deft-nee, and the learned Com- mibsioner approved of this course, saying that he could not conceive any jury finding otherwise.
