BARRY FUND FOR RESERVISTS' FAMlLfES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE RARRY HERALD." SIR,-In all parts of this country funds are being started for the families of Reservists who have re-joined their regiments, and I think the town of Barry should do its share in this matter. The great wave of Imperial patriotism which is flowing through the length and breadth of the land is, I am sure, to be found in Barry, and as Chairman of the Barry Drban District Council, I shall be very pleased to receive any subscriptions which the inhabitants of this district may wish to give. The District Council have appointed a committee to assist me in distributing the amounts re- ceived to the families of Reservists living in the district who will be in need of help. It is, I am sure, well known to your readers that the pay of a Reservist allocated to his wife and children is not sufficient to maintain them. It would be a great disgrace to Barry if the wives and children of men who, at their country's call, have left their homes to face death, should be compelled to have resource to Poor Law relief, the least we can do is to see that the men who are fighting our battles shall have no anxiety about the support of their wives and children. Yours truly, J. H. JOSE, Chairman of Barry U. D. Council. District Council Offices, Barry, 2nd Nov., 1899. Amounts already acknowledged £ 12 0 6 Additional Subscriptions: Mr E.

Congratulations to Councillor Morgan Thomas. On Tuesday, at a meeting of the South Glamorgan Liberal Association Executive, Alderman T. J. Hughes (Bridgend) at the outset referred to the honour conferred upon their active and energetic agent (Mr Morgan Thomas) recently in being elected a member of the Cardiff County Council, and he moved a resolution congratulating that gentleman. Mr Henry Radcliffe, the president, also referred iu eulogistic terms to Mr Thomas, and the resolution was carried unanimously.
CONCERT AT DINAS POWIS. On Tuesday evening last, at the National School, Dinas Powis, a grand successful con- cert was held for the benefit of the fund raised for providing the school ehildren with prizes. Money has been raised by this means each year, and substantial rewards has been given the children for good attendance and conduct at the schools. Major-General Lee made an ideal chairman, and the audience were kept througbout in thorough enjoyment. Local artistes gave their services free to provide an excellent programme of vocal and instrumental selections.
[BY "ATHLETE."] The chief local game on Saturday was that between the Unionist Reserves and the District Juniort. • • For a long time past the Juniors, with that con- ceit born of having had a most brilliant run during the season, have been most anxioui to try conclu- sions with their friends the Reserves. < • Naturally, the Reserves felt pretty confident as to the ultimate result of the game, and that con- fidence was justified by the score at half-time—one goal to nothing. Winch scored for the Reserves. • • During the latter part of the game. however, the excitement and partisanship ran high, nnd the referee was compelled to reprove the crowd round the ropes. The two goals scored by Granville and Giles were, doubtless, a bitter pill for the Reserves, and the general opinion was that the youngsters were the smarter lot. « • The Barry Westenrlers knocked ten goals out of Roath, who only 80t two in cl ange.'The Islanders played with the Newport Commercials at Barry Island, and won by four goals to two and the Intermediate School was beaten by the Higher Grade School, Cardiff, by four goals to nil. • # The schools of the district were also hotly engaged on Saturday. Two matches were played in the Jubilee Field on Saturday morning. The firsr, was between the Cadoxton and St. Helen's Schools, when the former secured the victory, scoring six goals to the latter's nil; and the second between the Holton-road and Barry Schools, Holton scoring four goals, and Barry one goal.

ENGINES FOR THE BARRY COMPANY. A BAlCH OF ORDERS. BELGIUM AND BRITISH MAKE. The Barry Railway Company, since taking steps towards procuring five locomotive engines from an American firm, have given extensive orders for locomotives, and at the present time there remain still unexecuted an order for five engines of a special type from Belgium, and orders for no fewer than 25 additional locomo- tives from English manufacturers. Their present supply will, consequently, be augu- mented at no distant date by over 30 engines. These are all required to deal with the present and prospective increased dock traffic, besides that which will necessarily follow the opening of the Rhymney branch line, and the resump- tion of the ordinary traffic on the Vale of Glamorgan Railway. The Belgium engines are expected to arrive at Barry early next mouth.
MANUAL TRAINING IN BARRY SCHOOLS. THE DESIRABILITY OF PROMOTING GAMES. Mr Legari, H.M. chief inspector of schools, has reported to the Committee of Council on Education respecting the efficiency of schools in Wales, and this is included in the annual Blue Book issued on Tuesday last. Barry is re- ferred to by the Chief Inspector, who c wells upon the advantage of agricultural training for different parts of Wales and of the necessity for manual instruction. He touches upon the needs of infant schools, of the failure of teachers, with few brilliant exceptions, to realise their freedom of action. In this matter he says teachers themselves require to be taught, and he advises the Welsh school boards to adopt the excellent plan of the school board for Barry, and place a skilled instructor on their staff. In conclusion, Mr Legard dwells upon the benefit to be derived by organising school games, by encouraging a love for healthy pastime, and the establishment of school gym- nasiums and school swimming-baths, about which he says "Little has yet has been done in this direction in Wales. So many schools in Wales are within, such easy dis- tances of either sea or river that not only boys, but also girls, could very generally be taught the useful art of swimming. In my own district the population is growing at a rapid rate, especially in the county boroughs of Cardiff and Newport and the wonderfully thriving town of Barry. The difficulties that have beset the school boards in providing fresh accommodation have been great, but it is a pity that more foresight has not teen shown in anticipating the increase by securing sites for new schools in advance.
DISTRICT NEWS. CADOXTON. iEsop's FABLES AT BETHEL.—On Wednesday evening at Bethel Presbyterian Church, Court- road, the Rev R. R. Roberts, B.A., lectured before a large and appreciative audience on Æilop's Fables. Mr Edgar Jones, M.A., occupied the chair, and he was supported by the Revs J. L. Jenkins, W. Williams, and Dr Aaron Davies. The lecturer dealt in a novel manner with JS-op'- Fables, and applied th,.m spiritually and politically to man- kind, causing much amusement. At the close a vote of thauks was, on the propositisn of the pastor, accorded the lecturer. EXTRAORDINARY SUCCESS in Gardening Opera. tions follow the sowing of "Owt:xs GARDEN SEEDS," which grow vigorously and produce abundant crops. Five Prizes, 60s, 30s, 20s, 15s, and 10s, open to all Wales, England, and Ireland, given for the best five specimens of Onions grown from Seeds obtained from H. J. OWEN, Chemist, Cadoxton. BETHEL CHAPEL ANNIVERSARY —Very success- ful gatherings were held in connection with the anniversary of this place of worship on Sunday and Monday. The Rev R. J. Rets, B A., Cardiff, preached on Sunday aftenoon, and the Rev J. Lewis Jenkins in the morning and evening. On Monday evening the chapel was well filled, when excellent sermons were preached hy the Rev R. J. Rees and the Rev Ben Evans, pastor of Tabernacle Welsh Independent Chapel, Barry Dock. These were characterised by great earnestness and effect. A special effort towards decreasing the debt oa the building resulted in about f35 being realised by this deserving church. THEATRE RoY AL. The Mermaid is a mys- tical title, very easily explained, and a most amusing play. The plot of the piece, like the title, goes far beyond the bounds of probability, but that is more relished by the delighted audience which have seen the play this u e., k than s'b r facts, or the usual facts of s-tage produciions. The amount of vaiiety in the piece is amazing ai d embraces all that can be e('n 011 the mutic hall stage, as well as on the legitimate boards. Th< Mermaid is recommend* d as a good antidote for melancholia, and a desirable refuge for the miser- able. The Hon. Lieutenant Padney Pickingtin (Mr Herbert Selby) is a study, and the Mermaid (Miss Lily Stewart), a paragon of lovliness and feminine propriety. Next week The Hand of Iron will be produced. BARRY DOCK. METHODIST FREE CHURCH, BUTTRILLS-ROAD.— Services will be held next Sunday Morning at 11 a.m. by Mr H. Williams, Evening, 6.30 p.m. b) the Rev J. J. Davies. Evening subject: "Barry and the drink." THE VOLUNTARY HOSPITAL. Three fresh patients have been admitted, one born, three sent out convalescent, and one died since our last issue. Fifteen are now in, and 153 poor sufferers have already been treated this year. Further gifts of money, old linen, &c., are daily needed. MARRIAGE.—On Thursday morning at Salem Welsh Baptist Chapel, Barry, the marriage took place, amid great rejoicing, of Mr W. J. Wood- ward, fitter, to Miss Sophia Thomas, both of Tynewydd-road. The Rev J. Llechidon Williams performed the interesting ceremony. ALLEGED UNLAWFUL WOUNDING.-On Wednes- day at Penarth Police Court a boarding-master, named George Coleman, was brought up charged with unlawfully wounding Malcolm Macpherson, a sailor, but the evidence being unsufficient to con- vict, the case was dismissed. Mr Cadle, solicitor, Cardiff, appeared for the defence. B.W.T.A.—A meeting of the Barry Dock branch of the British Women's Temperance Association was held on Wednesday evening at the English Baptist Chapel, Holton-road, Mrs Wensley presid- ing. The meeting was addressed by Mr Deverenx, of Cardiff, the police-court missionary. Sulos and recitations were given, and at the close several pledges were taken. WEDDING.—At Llandaff Cathedral, on Monday, the wedding took place of Police-constable Welaby, of Barry Dock, and Miss Elizabeth Reynolds, of The Green, Llandaff. The Rev C. Price tfficiated. Police-constable Lucas, Cardiff Borough Police, was b' st man, and the bridesmaids were Miss Fanny Reynolds and Miss Selina Welsby. The bl ide was given away by her father. Police-constable Welsby is a member of the local police force. TiiF, NlUKICIPALISATION or THE DitINK TRAFFIC. —Under the auspices of the Cardiff Socialist Party at the Swiss Hall, Qiteen-street, Cardiff, on Sunday evening Mr J. Spargo lectuied on "Local Veto: Prohibition or Municipalisation ?" advocating the latter. Local Veto, the lecturer declared, was of no use in the solving of the drink problem, and prohibition, where it had been tried, had proved a failure. They must deal with the question as they have in the past dealt with the water ques- tion, and as they purposed dealing with the tramways. P. T. CENTRE.—A meeting of the Pupil Teachers Centre Committee of the Barry School Board was held on Thursday evening, Dr Lloyd-Edwards pre- siding. There were present, Mr D. Lloyd, and Mr P. Wright.—The headmaster's report was read and passed as satisfactory.—It was decided that on the opening of Hannah-street School?, the institution of the pupil teachers should be carried on in one of the class-rooms to be set apart for that purpose. Harry Haines, Florence Williams, M. Roberts, and Mary Lewis, were accepted as pupil teacher pro- bationers.—A discussion took place on the advisa- bility of appro;,ching Sir George Kekewich with a view of obtaining recognition of the result of the Welsh Central Board examinations as regards pupil teachers for the purpose of obtaining Govern- ment grants, aud on the suggestion of the Chairman it was decided to do so. FEDERATION or TEMPERANCE SOCIETIEB.-Oll Monday evening last the iepresentativ( s of local temperance societies met in the Bille Chribtian Chapel, Court-road, for the purpose of considering the advieabilty of inviting the different bodies in one general executive council, which would then be directly representative of several thousands of temperance people, and would be a great power in the district. Mr S. R. Jones presided over mem- bers of the various societies, including the Fr ee Church Temperance Socitcty, Rechabites, Sons ot Temperance, Sons of Phcenix. Good Templars, British Women's Temperance Association, B nd of Hope Union, to. The question of forming ageneral council was thoroughly discussed, and a committee was formed composed of the Revs T. P. John, B. Evans, L. Ton Evans, and Messrs S. R. Jones, James Cruise, T. P. Panniers, and Mrs Williams, for the purpose of submitting a scheme. It was also decided to hold a great temperance mission for the 24th February next to the 1st March in- clusive, when the popular speaker from New Zealand, Missioner T. W. Glover, will be the principal attraction. BARRY. GARDENERS AND ALLOTMENT-HOLDERS are re- commended to apply for my new Seed Catalogue for 1899. Speciality in Seeds always fresh. Cata- logues free.—W.

The pulpit next Sunday will be occupied, both morning and evening, by the Rev W. C. Parry, of Cardiff. CONCERT AT ROMILLY HALL.—On Wednesday evening an orchestral ballad concert was held in the Romilly Hall, when several vocalists and in strumeutalists of note, as well as Mr Fred E. Roberts' Cardiff Band, appeared. The selections rendered by the band were beyond all praise, and an impromptu cornet solo especially deserved the encore it received. The orchestra opened the concert with the National Anthem, and then gave as an overture Poet and Peasant." Miss Auuie Gloasop rendered in a fine manner the^ ± light of ages," and gave the Promise of hf«" as an en- core. My old man John by the same lady was also well appreciated. Mr Arthur Roberts re- ceived on encore for his beautiful rendering of The broken melody." Mr A. H. Perkins also sang his favourite "To Anthea" and the "Bedouin's love sous," and Mr C. James gave a piccolo solo. The audience, though small, was select and appre- ciative, and thoroughly enjoyed thtl high-class selectiuu given by the artistes.

THE LATE CANON ALLEN. MEMORIAL SERVICE AT BARRY AND PORTHKERRY. Ou Wednesday morning and afternoon memorial services were held at the parish churches of Porth- kerry and Barry, as a tribute to the memory of the late Canon Allen, for many years the rector of those parishes. In the morning the Bishop of the diocese unveiled memorial windows at Porthkerry. There was a good attendance, and the sermon was preached by the Rev J. Price, of St. Paul's, Barry, from the text "The memory of the just is blessed"— (Proverbs 10--7). In the afternoon a large congregation, a great number of whom were Nonconformists, witnessed the ceremony, performed by the Bishop, of unveil- ing the three stained glass windows which have been placed in Barry Parish Church. The Rector (Rev H. H. Stewart, M.A.,) and the,.Curate took part in the service, and the sermon was preached by the Bishop from the Psalms, 1st ch., 3, 4 ver. In the course of a brief and touching sermon, the Bishop, after thanking the Rector for having allowed him to unveil the windows in memory of his late friend, likened the character of Canon Allen to that of David. His Lordship referred to his long acquaintance with Canoh Allen, which had lasted tor nearly 70 years. He had known him to be a devout and undemonstrative man. He had been a model parish priest, sympathetic and Christlike in his intercourse—extending over a period of 30 years-with his parishioners. For his social virtues the Canon had been beloved, and he (the Bishop) hoped the memorial windows would h. lp to remind the parishioners of Barry of the man who had departed, of his sterling character, and of his godly life. Immediately after the service, tea was partaken of at the Church Hall, and was thoroughly enjoyed. The windows at B--irry and Porthkery, which are from designs by Mr R J. Neubery, London, have cost about £ 130. Those at B irry cost jE95, and are three in number, illustrative, the middle one, of the Saviour as the Good Shepherd, while imme- diately underneath is a representation of the Crucifixion. To the right is St. Paul and the Resurrection, and to the left St Peter and the Nativity. As may be supposed, the windows are a great improvement to the appearance of the interior of the Parish Church. The Canon Allen Memorial Fund was inaugur- ated some months ago, and the thanks of the public are due to those who promoted the scheme and assisted in the realization of the object for which it was Eet on foot. The secretary to the movement (Mr R. E. Williams) deserves especial mention, as he has borne by far the greater part of the work.
IMPERIALISM IN BARRY SCHOOLS. ATTITUDE OF THE TEACHERS. PROTEST BY THE REV. L. TON EVANS. The Barry School Board Management Com- mittee at their meeting on Thursday in last week, under the presidency of Mr John Lowdon. J.P., held after the reporters had been requested to leave, the following letter was read which that gentleman had received:— Harregy, Barry, November 16, 1899. DEAR MR LOWDON,—I wish to call the special attention of yourself and the Board to the fact that advantage is being taken of the present unfortunate —and, in the opinion of a very large number of thoughtful and intelligent persons, iniquitous, war now prosecuted in the Transvaal, to teach party politics in the schools maintained by ratepayers belonging to every section of the community, a considerable number of whom, if not the majority, hold adverse views to the policy of the Govern- ment, or rather that portion of it responsible for the present state of affairs. There can be no objection raiaed to what is accredited as authentic history, or the teaching of the geography of South Africa pure and simple, although the unsettled, not to say chaotic, condition of matters just now is not, perhaps most opportune even for that. I must strongly prott-It against teachers at Cadoxton, and I am given to understand that what is done there is also done in other schools under the Board en. deavourii g to create and encourage* a war spirit amongst children, and sowing poisonous seeds in he minds of those who are yet, on account. of age, &c, utterly incapable of judging for themselves and deep-rooted race hatred against other nations— which must result in a strong prejudice and as the Dutch, for instance—consequently working prejudicially against, and detrimental to, the development of those for whom the schools have been built, and are so liberally supported. If this continues I shall feel compelled to withdraw my children during such time that such teaching (?) is imported. I trust you "ill c.ll the atten ion of the Board to the mutter, and that seeps "ill be taken to prevent party politics being introduced and taught, seeing that religious dogmas are rigidly excluded from the schools under the Board, sup- ported by rates paid by persons of all creeds and no creed at all. -Sincerely yours, L. TON EVANS. The Committee decided to write to the head teachers, asking them to teach geography, and abstain from what had been complained of.

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.

NATIONAL UNION OF SHOP ASSISTANTS. VISIT OF THE ORGANISER TO THE LOCAL! BRANCH. On Monday evening last Mr J. Turner, the! organiser and paid lecturer to the National Union of Shop Assistants, addressed the membere of the local branch at the Glamorgan Restaurant, Thomp- son-street, Barry Dock. Mr W. J. Ceusins, the president cf the local branch, occupied the chair, and he was supported by the secretary and repre- sentative of the Union on the Trades Council. This being Mr Turner's first visit to the district, lie was accol ded a. luarty receptiou by the mem- b,rs. Mr Turner aid he wished very briefly to put before the members a few of the principles of the Union. For many years shop assistants had iived in what was practically a fool's paradise, and had fall d to make their p tition hehind th- counter cure. While they had been practically at a standstill, the labourer, the arti-an, and the rnecbai ic lind been steadily improving their 0 position. Many shop Lssistan is wish -1 to b-eoine masters, nnd for that rtasou scrrneo their posi, ion as an assistant, but he would remind then, that the chances of an assistant becoming master wer growing smaller and smaller every year. Their organisation was started with the avowed object of devoting all its strength to improving the status of the members. He would impress upon them the fact that the N.A.S.A. was not an early closing society. He wanted them to IOClk upon the Union as a life-long work, and if they did so, their Union would be in time the same to them, as far as effectiveness went, as the union was to the artisan and labourer. (Hear, hear.) The wages of the shop assistant would not bear comparison with those of the artisan and the tradesman. A good workman in London could earn lid per hour, for 48 hours per week. The shop assistants worked 66 hours per week, at the salary of 5! per hour, a wage which would not be accepted by the most un- skilled man in the country. Let them take a leaf out of the book of the artisan, and join their com- bination in order to protect their own interests. (Hear, hear.) Referring to the living-in system, Mr Turner said that j he drapery trade was mostly mf. ct d with that system. Many of the big firms of the country were extending the living-in system. These firms accepted no mariied men. They had to behave themselves with the regularity of the clock, and only so many men allowed to get married on the staff. He could aver that there were hun- dreds of men in London who were at the present moment living in secret marriage. As an organi- sation they were pledged that all men should have the right to live where they liked, have the proper wage, and not as they were at present, compelled to remain celibates, because he maintained that as 1' ng as men w ere compelled to lead such a life, it would mean nothing but utter moral demoralisa- tion, and the sacrifice of the master's as well as the community's interests. The lecturer also referred to Mr Broadhurst's bill at present before the. country, in which it made fines an illegal aet. He had no objection to men and women being fined for losing time. But all men would condemn the system which fined men and women for other little errors of behaviour behind the counter. The agreerrent system the lecturer also condemned, and refetred to an instance in which a journeyman blindly signed an agreement which prevented him from ever working within two miles of his last 9 place. Another point to which the lecturer re- ferred was the withholding of references.
