My little girl has very fair hair, and was much troubled with nits, &c., but since using HAGON'S CLEANSER 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 stop in the street to Hwe them." 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 coombsfullat a time, and what they kept was scraggy 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."

REMEMBER RESERVISTS' FAMILIES. IN another column will be found the amount of subscriptions received during the past week. In the list, the contributions of Mr C. H. Bailey's Tyne Engine Repairing C3 Works, and of the staff and pupils of the County School, call for special notice. This is not the first time that the workmen of Mr Bailey have shown praiseworthy gener- osity. They were in the van in contributing weekly to the Nursing Fund. A hope may be expressed that their excellent example may be followed by many other bodies of work- men. The contribution of the County School is also an interesting item. The sum of L6 128 was contributed by the staff and pupils at a concert arranged among themselves on behalf of the fund. The local committee desires to make an earnest appeal to the people of Barry. Collecting books are now ready, and will be given to any responsible person who will apply to the chairman, Councillor J. H. Jose, or to the hon. secretary, Mr Edgar Jones, the County School. In the work of collecting funds and administering relief, the committee of the Soldiers and Sailois' Association and the committee appointed by the District Council are amalgamated, and are working in perfect co-operation. It seems necessary to repeat that the needs of the families of Reservists ordered out are of a very pressing character. Attention should be called to the fact that the only help the wife of a Reservist receives from Government is 8d a day for herself and 2d a day for each child, a sum utterly inadequately to support a family in the bare necessities of life. It is impossible to expect the husband to contri- bute much from his small pay, which will be badly needed in South Africa, where prices have gone up to an enormous extent. There will be still greater need of funds locally in the future, for the mobilisation of the Cardiff Militia on December 4th will pro- bably effect the Barry district considerably. As a militia man's pay is but slightly over one shilling a day, his contribution towards the support of his family must of necessity be very small. We trust that the inhabi- tants of Barry, once they realise their obligation in the matter, will contribute handsomely to the fund. SIR EDWARD CLARKE, like Mr J. M. Mac. lean, was always, "so to speak," a rough colt to drive, and has "jibbed" more than once when the wirepullers have tightened the rein on him. His constituents, or some of them, have expressed strong opposition to the attitude the eminent and independent Tory lawyer has taken respecting the beginning of the Transvaal trouble, so Sir Edward has announced his determination not to stand again for Plymouth. As we happen to agree with Sir Edward Clarke's views on the point that proper diplomacy might have avoided war, we quith sympa- thise with his position. We wish there were more Sir Edward Clarkes in the Tory party. It would be better for that party and for the country, and Liberalism would have far less reason to be continually at loggerheads with Conservatism.
CORRESPONDENCE. [We do not hold ourselves responsible for the views expressed by our correspondents.—ED.] "HONOUR TO WHOM HONOUR IS DUE." TO THE EDITOR OF THE "BARRY HERALD." SIR,-In your valuable columns of November 17th you were kind enough to insert, under the above heading, a letter from me containing an enquiry on behalf of many friends whether Mr Norris and the late assistant master and mistress were ever paid the outstanding amounts due to them. A reply has been received to the negative, stating that there is now only the law to*resort to for the recovery of the same. In conclusion of the subject, those who were most solicitous over the matter consider it very deplorable that efforts for the recovery of the amounts may have to be rrade through the costly and inconvenient channels of the law, and think that the vagaries of our authorities as regards money matters are beyond comprehen- sion, e&pecially so when they refer to the report of the meeting of the School Board contained.in your issue of last week. The apparent prodigal libera- lity in the matter of the new clerk's salary mentioned therein, and which has rightly been challenged, strikes them as being somewhat in- consistent.—I am, &c., GEORGE MASON. 8, Wenvoe-terrace, Barry, Nov. 28, 1899. IMPERIALISM IN BARRY SCHOOLS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE "BARRY HERALD." SIR,-The charge against the teachers of the Cadoxton School contained in the Rev L. Ton Evans' letter to the Barry School Board, and published in your valuable columns of the 24th ult., accusing them of creating a war-like spirit among the children and sowing poisonous seeds," &c., is as uncalled-for as it is trumpery; and there is no doubt that sueh an effusion will meet with the merits it deserves at the hands of the Board teachers, and also that the terrible threat at the end of the letter will not materially affect the 2,999 parents—(about)—who send their children to the excellent schools of Barry under the auspices of the Board. Alluding to other schools, at which he is "given to understand the same heinous (?) proceedings take place, kindly allow me to state that in one school, to my knowledge, a collection for Reser- vists' families, Ac., has been made among the scholars, with the permission of the talented and estimable headmaster, which has been extremely successful; and it is to be hoped that it won't be the last. It is very gladdening to see that our instructors of the young are not of the narrow-minded kind, who look at matters, of whatever sort, through their blurred spectacles of parsimony, or chill the young hearts of their charges with that cant-like piety which is not real. Let them by all means cultivate in our children those unfettered sym- pathies which are to be found in every true and couscientious citizen, so that after we are gone they may be fitted to take our place. There may be many an empty cupboard and desolate hearth among the families of the Reser- vists this winter, the bread-winner being away upholding the integrity of that vast empire which the Rev L. Ton Evans has the honour to form one three hundred and fifty millionth part, if help is not given, and that freely, so it is to be hoped that no searing or icily-worded enjoinder from any person whatever will have the effect of damping the efforts for goodwill of the people of Barry to that end.—I am, &c., Barry.

STREET FATALITY AT CARDIFF. A BARRY LADY RUN OVER. About 6.30 on Monday evening, while crossing to the G.W.R. Station, Cardiff, Mrs Harriett Andrews, of Khartoum House, Court-road, Barry Dock, was knocked over by a hansom and sus- tained injuries, from which she died while being conveyed to the local Infirmary. The police do not attribute any blame to Thomas Arthur Moise, the diiver. Mrs Andrews was the mother of Mis Pockett, of Khartoum If -use, with whom she re- sided. Both Mr and Mrs Po kett left for Cardiff immediately they had been made acquainted of the sad affair by the police. Deceased had gone to Cardiff on business, and her retul n was expected at the time tbe sad news was brought. At the inquest at Cardiff on Tuesday, the jury returned a verdict of "Accidental death," and absolved the driver from all blame. Mr Lloyd Meyrick watched the case on behalf of the cab- man, Thomas Arthur Morse, instructed by the Cabdrivers' Society.

BARRY PUBLIC WORKS. ALLEGED SUB-LETTING. A BATCH OF CONTRACTS. A meeting of the Public Works Committee of the Barry District Council was held on Tuesday evening, over whieh Mr E. B. hruitb-Jones presided, the other members present being Councillers D. Morgan, J. L. Davies, J. A. Manaton, and Evan Jones. ALLEGED SUB-LETTING. Messrs McKay and Davies, contractors, wrote in reply to a letter from the Council denying that they bad in any way departed from the specification with regard to sub-letting, as bad been alleged by the Friendly Society of Operative Stone Masons. The letter stated that the work had been done by piece-work. Councillor Manaton I move that we ask the contractors a direct question: Whether they let any of their work by piece-work ? The Surveyor said he had asked that question, and had received a reply in the negative. The Clerk pointed out that the letter of Messrs Mackay and Davies simply stated that they had not sub-let. They mentioned nothing about piece-work. The members agreed that the reply of Messrs Mackay and Davies should be sent to the Stonemasons' Society, and in answer to Mr Evan Jones, the Clerk stated that it would be competent for any deputation to come before the Committee with evidence to prove their allegation. PENCOITRE-ROAD IMPROVEMENTS. Plans were produced by the Surveyor of the contemplated road widening and improvement at Pencoitre, an important approach to the town from Wenvoe. It was decided, where possible, to have the road 50ft. wide. ALLEGED ENCROACHMENT. Captain Morrell wrote declaring that the Ccuncil bad encroached upon some land which he had bought adjoining Romilly Park, in making their roadway, and it was resolved that a member of the Committee should see Captain Mvrrell on the matter. A BATCH OF CONTRACTS., The followirg tenders were received, and on the motion of Mr J. A. Manaton, it was decided that the lowest be accepted in every case OXFORD STREET: G.

THE PORTHKERRY FOOTPATHS. It was decided to fence in the pathways at Porthkerry with a Is Id per yard wire fence.— A letter was read in connection with this matter from the Barry Trades Council objecting to the Council spending money to protect private pro- perty, but it was agreed to point out that this was part of the bargain in getting the paths re- opened. PROJECTED ROAD IMPROVEMENT. A letter was read from Mr C. R. Walker, on behalf of the Barry Estate Company, agreeing to give land for the projected road improve- ments about the hill at Barry, running parallel with the main road, but in order to get an out- let at Buttrils-road, it was agreed to write to Mr Forrest and Mr D. T. Alexander to as- certain what they were prepared to do in the matter.
