SNAP SHOTS. Mr J. Turner has had nearly 22 years experience in the grocery and provision trade. The Rev H. S. Frank Williams, curate of St. Mary's Church, has, during the week, been some- what severely indisposed, but has now resumed his duties. Major W. H. W yndham Quin, M.P., paid a visit to Barry on Tuesday. The General Election, so the Observer states, will take place in July next. Miss Jenner, of Wenvoe, had a nasty fall down- stairs the other day, the result probably of the nerveless state to which she was reduced by being frightened by a savage bull. The Associated Society of Shipwrights have had two local cases for compensation in the courts recently. One was settled for £120, bat the other will be contested, the claim being L250. The Barry Glee Society will give a concert next Sunday evening at the Romilly Hall, Barry, the proceeds to be in aid of the Reservists' families. Let it be a bumper The interment of the late Mr E. R. Moxey took place this (Thursday) afternoon at the Cardiff Cemetery. Mr Mjxey was well known to com- mercial and professional men at Barry. An old message re-told :— To that dear land where we were bred Take this, the message of her dead; We went where she would have us go, We fell, our faces to the foe. E.V. A tradesman from Holton-road watched the Lord Mayor's Show in Londc-n the other day. While standing looking quietly on, a pickpocket came UD unobserved, and his watch was no more. It was a gold one, too The fire which destroyed the premises of Mr Barnett, in Thompson-street, on Mouday morning, strongly emphasises the recessity of a brigade cf firemen and apparatus sufficiently strong to cope with a fire oi respectable proportions. There have been 112 applications for the post of secretary to the Barry Graving Dock and En- yineering Company, vacanted by the death of Mr W. Dore Wood. The directors will make the new appointment shortly. A bazaar will be held on Friday and Saturday next at the Empire Hall, Thompson-street, in aid of the funds of the Voluntary Hospital. Several well-known vocalists will appear, and selections will be given during the proceedings. We have received a copy of the Welsh American journal, Y Drych, in which one of our shots respecting the salaries of teachers in the Barry district appear. It must have travellad like a cannon-ball to reach the American shores so quickly. Councillor Jenkins, J.P., who caught the 10'4 train to Cardiff on Saturday night, expressed the opinion at the smoker held at the Victoria Hotel the same evening, that the Barry Company ought to place a later up train for the convenience of the public, especially as Barry and Cardiff were two great ports. He thought the service very inade- quate. On Saturday a Barry boy, not having the where- withal to take him to Cardiff to view the Cardiff v. Swansea match, walked the double journey. The influence of the game is great, but a far truer and more manly love of the sport would have been exemplified in his playing the game at home. It is not sport to watch a game. The eccentricities of address are quite as ridicu- lous as those of dres-s. We have this week re- ceived a communication from Germany, thus :— Mr L. Evans, Printer, Cadoxton, Barry Dock, S. Wales, England, 69, Main Street. It stops here, because it has arrived at the bottom of the (nvelrpe, but probably, having rectived the last edition cf the HERALD in Leipzig, they were going to add Barry East." Mr D. L. Evans' goodness of nature and even indulgence towards the se in his employ have found outlets in a multiplicity of w ays. Latterly, this enterprising gentlemen, with a view to further in- creasing the comfort of his assistants, has provided his establishment with most ingeniously-contrived seats, affixed t the counters, to allow the assistants to sit and stand at will whilst serving the custom- ers that daily infest his recently-enlarged and magnificent premises at Barry Dock. THE DESOLATE HOMES OF ENGLAND. So many homes of England In desolation stand, For thousands of their loved ones Are far in Afric's land They're gone to fight for glory, For Britain, and their Queen, And now we hear the story Of all that stirring Feene- How day by day our brave ones Have fallen in the fight, And how for England's honour They fought with all their might. They cared not for the fire Which from the Boers came, They faced them like true Britons, And died for England's name. The slaughtered sons of England In heaven now take their stand, They rest in peace and glory, Safe in Immanutl's land. God bless our gallant soldiers, With hearts so brave and true God bless our Queen Victoria, And our great Empire, too. KATIE LLEWELLYN. St. Peter'e-street, Carmarthen.
