YR AELWYD GYMREIG. [DAN OLYGIAETH ALLTUD.] cf'< -■ *9?. NODION. Dydd Sadwrn diweddaf, tra ar ymweliad a Barri gyda'r aincan o roddi ei bresenoldeb yn yr eisteddfod gynhelid yn y Tabernacl, tarawyd Mr W. T. Samuel yn wael iawn yu wir, mor wael fel nas gellid ei symud gartref am rai dydiiau. Blin iawn fydd gau eiu darllenwyr dderbyn y uewydd digalon hwn, a gwn y byddant hwy mor awyddus a ninau i'w weled eto yu holliach, gan fod yna rai canoedd wedi bwriadu ei weled yn arwain yn y Romilly Hail nos Fercher nesltf. Os nafydd ef yn alluog, pwy geir i lanw ei le ? ,Y. Daeth amryw ginoedd yn ng'iyd hwyr Sadwru diweddaf i Eisteddfod y Tabernacl. Diau fod arncan clod wiw y cyfarfod, sef estyn cyuorthwy i Mr Johnnie Williams, George- street,-Barri D >c, yr hwn sydd wedi bod yn glaf am ddwy flynedd, i raddau yn cyfrif am luosogrwydd y cynulliad; ond yn anibynol ar hyn, yr oedd y rhaglen yn un ddyddorol iawn. Llanvrodd y gweiuidog (Parch Ben Evans) y gadair mewu modd hapus a digrifol, a chredwn i'r gwahanol feiruiaid (y rhai wasanaetbasant yn ddidal) roddi boddlonrwydd cyffredinol. Beirniad y gerddoriaeth ydoedd Mr D. Fair, Barri; yr adroddiadau, Parch W. Tibbott, Cadoxton; a'r prize bags, Mrs Williams, Kingsland-crescent. Feallai mai yr hyn greodd fwyaf o loniant ydoedd ffugenwau difyr y gwahanol gystadleuwyr. Pan alwyd ar Kruger yn inlaen i ganu Llwybr y Wyddfa," dych- mygwch ein syndod i weled, yn lie yr hen wr dt:uddeg a thriugain oeddem wedi gysylltu a'r enw, fachgen ieuanc unionsyth ac addawol yn cerdded i'r set fawr ac wrtb sylwi yn fanwl aruo adgofiwyd ni fod y Kruger bwn yn aelod, dair blyned 1 yn ol, o Gyrudeithas Cymru Fydd Barri, ac yn medru siarad Cyniraeg yu llithrig a rhesymu yn gryf. [Gyda Haw, beth sydd wedi dyfod o Gymdeithas Cymru Fydd ? Ai y ginio fwriedir gyual ar Ddydd Gwyl Dewi yw yr unig arddangoseg ydym i'w gael y gauaf hwn o'n neillduolion cenedlaethol ?] A cbym eryd yr "holl destunau gyda'u gilydd, yr oedd nifer y cystadleuwyr yn lluosog a'r gystadleu- aeth yn llym. Parodd y cyfarfod am yn agos i bedair awr, a dangoswyd brwdfrydedd dibaid o'r dechreu i'r diwedd. Fod prawf o'r mod,, trylwyr y cariodd Mr Gwyn Morgan allnn ei ddyledawyddau fel ysgrifenydd nodwn y ffaith gysurlawn iddo allu trosglwyddo i Mr Johnnie Williaros, ar ol talu yr holl dreuliau, dros wyth punt fel cynyrch y cynulliad. Jë, Sabboth Dirwestol ydoedd y diweddaf, a chafwyd pregethau o bob areitbfa Ymueillduol yn Barri ar yr effeitbiau melldithiol sydd yn dilyn ymarferiad o ddiod gadarn. Mae neillduo un Sabboth bob blwyddyn fel yma yn sicr o brofi yn llesiol. I ddechreu, rhaid i'n gwein- idogion fod yn llwyrymwrthodwyr (os am fod fod yn gyson) cyn medvu anog eu gwrandawyr i ffyrdd sobrwydd. Credwn fod y mater hwii yn derbyn mwy o sylw ein gwt-iudogion fel cyfangorf fnag oedd, dyweder, ugain mlynedd yn ol, oblegld eithriad ydyw dyfod o hyd i fugail eglwys heddyw nad yw yn ddirwestwr proffesedig. A chymeryd i ystyriaeth gyflwr y dref hon, feallai. ma.i menywod-jë, mamau- ydyw y troseddwyr mwyaf yn y cyfeiriad hwn, ac mai mam feddw, bron yn ddieithriad, yn golygu tyaid o blant a fydd, a chaniatau iddynt amser a dadblygiad, yn dyfod yn bonteuluoedd eu hunain ac felly mae'r hid gwenwynig yn suddo i gwnawd, giau, ac esgyrn oesoedd dilynol, ac yn magu nerth parhaus. Mae yna ganoedd o fenywod a gwrywod yn Barri a'r wlad yn gyffredinol nad oes un gobaith am iddynt byth fyw bywyd teilwng o barch ond trwy lwyr-ymataliad; mai cymedroldeb (a phwy sydd yn gallu mesur cymedroldeb ?) iddYDt yn beth anmhosibl. I'r cyfryw deddfu ydyw'r unig foddion effeithiol, oblegid ar ol eu hanog a'i darbwyllo i sobrwydd maent hwy, tra yn chwenych byw yn sobr, yn llithro! Mae gan bleidwyr sobrwydd ymdrechfa galed yn mlaen, oherwydd mae'r darllawyr a'rtafarnwyr -ac mae'r un perscnau yn eyfansodoi'r ddau ddosbarth yn awr—a'u rhengoedd yn ddifwlcb. a chanddynt ddigon o arian i gadw eu biawn- derau (?) fel masnachwyr. Gobeithio y cawn glywed ein gweinidogion yn siarad yn ddi- floesgni ar y pen hwn ar bob achlysur taraw- iadol. Pwy all fesur y creulonderau, yr hunanedd, y tlodi, a'r trosedd mai y ddiod yn acbosi hyd yn nod yn ein tref ni bob blwyddyn ? Mae yr hwn sydd yn ymwrtbod a'r ddiod feddwol er mwyn y brodyr gweiuiaid yn eicr o fod yn derbyn wrth roi, ac yn myned i dderbyn mwy'nol Ilaw. Nos Fawrth diweddaf ymddangosodd Cor Meibion Treorchy, 30 mewn nifer, ac o dan arweiniad Mr William Thomas, o flaen Iarll Dunraven a chwmni a foneddigesau a boneddig- ion oeddynt ar ymweliad & Cbastell Dunraven. Bu y cor hwn ar ymweliad a'r Castell tua thir blynedd yn ol, a chafodd ei arglwyddiaetb y fath bleser wrth eu gwrando yn canu y tro hwnw fel y penderfynodd anfon cais arbenig atynt eilwaitb. Llongyfarchodd Arglwydd Dunravcn Mr Thomas a'i gantorion ar y dull delieuig yr aethant trwy eu gwaitb. Fel y gwyr ein darllenwyr, cafodd y calltorion hyn yr an- rhydedd o ymddangos o flaen ei Mawrhydi y Frenines beth amser yn ol, a dywedodd Arglwydd Dunraven wrth Mr Thomas y gwnai ef ei oreu er cymbell eiu Grasusal Frenines i anfon am danynt eto. Yn mysg y cwmnii urddasol yr oedd Major Wyndbam-Quin, a phetb ryfedd na fuasai cynrychiolydd Seneddol y rbanbarth hon o Forganwg, wrth glywed yr addewid yn cael ei gwneyd, yn meddwl am Gor Barri, yr hwn, er wedi trechu boll gorau Cymru a Lloegr yn yr Eisteddfod Genedlaethol dai- weddaf, sydd eto heb dderbyn nawddogaeth eu Brenines dirion. Fel y bydd yr Etholiad Cyffredinol yn agoshau, cawn glywed am y gorchestion mae'r boneddwr hwn wedi estyn i ni yn gyfnewid am yr anrhydedd o gael eistedd yn St Stephan! Ond dyaa, i'w dyb ef nid oes yn Barri ond llweh glo a phleldlelslau-nld yw y cyntaf o fawr gwerth iddo, ond gofala am y diweddaf pan ddaw'r amser! ;i TEMLYDDIAETH.

BARRY FUND FOR RESERVISTS' FAMILIES. > —— 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 Urban District Council, I shall be very pleased to receive any subscriptions which the inhabitants- of this district may wish to give. The Dis- trict 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.

JosE, District Council Offices, Barry. Barry Reservists' Fund. DEAR SiR, ID reply to your circular re tho above, I have great pleasure in handing to you per bearer, the sum of JE21 2s 5d as a contribu- tion from the employer, staff, and employees of the Tyne Engine Works, as per lists enclosed, and I sincerely trust that your fund will meet with the success it deserves. In addition to the above, the staff have de- cided to contribute 1/- per week each so long as the need for same exists, and the men are also considering the advisability of making a small weekly subscription, but up to the present they have come to no definite decision. I ought to mention tba4; prior to the starting of your fund here, Mr Bailey had already given A:50 towards the Refugees' Fund, and E25 towards the Newpart Reservists' Fund, which, together with the £ 5 5s herein subscribed, makes X80 5s from Mr Bailey. Yours faithfully, per pro C. H. BAILEY, (Signed) WM. GRAHAM.
THE WAR. LETTER FROM A CARDIFFIAN. HOW THE GLENCOE VICTORY WAS WON. Writing to Mr D. G. Davies, 201, Holton-road, Barry Dock, under date October 27th, Mr Geraghty, a telegraphists in the service of the Government at Durban, who was at one time em- ployed at the Cardiff Post Office, makes the follow- ing interesting statements You will no doubt have heard of the two signal victories gained over the wily Boer, who resists the overthrow of his oligarchy. I feel very sorry for the poor, illiterate Boer, who has been lured into this bloody war by the cowardly Hollander. The Hollander clique is principally responsible for it, and who, if the Press accounts are correct, when they found they were beaten cried for mercy, and when spared by our soldiers they deliberately potted then off when their backs were turned. The Boer of the old Hottentot type is a biave man, and some are very decent fellows, but have been in- cited by their rabid krouws and the old Hollander clique. When the news of the victory (Glencoe) was known from Pietermaritzburg, the Postmaster- General came into the office, stopped all the instru- ments for a few minutes, and asked the men both in Durban and Pietermaritzburg to give three cheers for the British troops. We gave such ringing cheers in Durban that we fairly carried the roof with us, and the people outside the office thought we haJ gone stark, raving mad, they being in ignorance of the good tidings. The Pobtmaster-General promised that I should be sent to the front; but, just my luck, the brunt of traffic in South Africa at the present time is fall. ing upon Durban, consequently I could not be spared."
ST. DAVID'S DAY CELEBRATION. MEETING OF BARRY WELSHMEN. A meeting of patriotic Welshmen desirous of celebrating the anuiversary of their patron saint in fitting manner on St David's Day was held on A, ge Wednesday evening last at the Windsor Hotel. Messrs J. Reynolds and T. J. Morgan convened the meeting on theii ow n initiative, aud are to be com- mended upon taking such an early step. Mr J. E. Rees, headmaster of the Pupil Teachers' Centre, *<aS vo|, (^ to the ch;ur, and was supported by Messrs J. Lloyd Jones, R. T. Evans, James Davies, Joshua, Davies, J. X). I)avies, and W. M. Davies (South Hate Daily News). It was agreed that prominent Welshmen should be written to inviting them to be present on the occasion, and the follow- ing name8 were suggested :-Mr W. Llewelyn VVill- M-A., B.A.L., Mr 0. M. Edwards, M.A., Mr W. Jones, M.P., Dr Emrys Jones, Man- chester Dr Garrod Thomas, Newport, and Judge Gwilym Williams (Ap Alaw Goch).-Mr J. D. Davies made a suggestion that a Cymroderion or Cynireigyddion Society should be formed for the district, and it was stated that it would be com- petent for the next meeting to discuss this matier, but the celebration dinner should not necessarily be attached to any society, It was thereupon decided to convene another meeting on Wednesday week next, December 13th, when all Welshmen resident in the district are invited to be present. Mr T. J. Morgan was selected secretary of the dinner committee, and that gentleman will send circulars out to a number of people inviting them to attend the mee ing in order to make the cele braiion worthy of Walefl and Welshmen alike. i

THEATRE ROYAL. -A very strong dramatic pipe- is this week placed before the patrons of the Cad- oxton Theatre. The Hand of Iron is one of those plays which attracts by reason of the strong liuman sympathies which are aroused in the breasts of the audience. While strong in dramatic interest, it is not devoid of humour of a very appreciable sort, and is here and there enlivened by a song and dance MrR^y Jackson takes the leading t6!e, that of Mausel Levigne, the man with the hand of iron. This part is sustained with great power. Edmund Singleton and Mary Sutherland (Mr Hirry Barham aid Miss Bes ie Barham), the virtuous hero and heroine, are also excellent. The clock tower scene is a great act-in itself, and deserves the highest praise. BARRY DOCK. RESERVISTS' FAMILIES FUND.-On Thursday in last week a meeting was held of, the Soldiers aud Sailors' Families Ass' ciation, at the residence of the secretary (Mrs Dr Livingstone), theltowers, Holton-road. Mrs Jenner presided.

BARRY PARKS.—A meeting of the Parks Com- mittee of the Barry District Council was held on Wednesday evening, at the Council Chamber. Gas and Water Offices, Barry Dock, Alderman J. C. Meggitt, J.P., in the chair. There were also pre- sent Messrs D Morgan, E. B. Smith-Jones, J. A. Manaton, A. T. White, and J. L. Davies. After a discussion, it was agreed that the Plans Selection Sub-committee draw up a recommendation, so that the Parks Committee may be in a better position for applying for a loan for the development or the land acquir ed for the laying out of the Victoria and Romilly Parks. BARRY MINISTERS' FRATERNAL ASSOCIATION.— The monthly meeting of the above Association was held at the residence of the Rev Dr Aaron Davies, 93, Court-road, the President (Rev J. Mydyr Evans) in the chair. There were also present the Revs Dr Aaron Davies, T. P. John, H. J. Horn, C. H. Shave, L. Ton Evans, and the Rev B. Evans, Tabernacle Welsh Congregational Chapel, Holton- road, Barry Dock, to whom the Association ex- tended a cordial welcome. The Rev J. H. Watson, of Cadoxton, read a paper on The Doctrine of Sin, its place in our Preaching." SCHOOL BOARD FINANCE.—The monthly meeting of the Finance Committee of the Barry School Board was held at the Clerk's Office, Holton-rojd Schools, on Thursday evening in List week, Mr D. Lloyd presiding. The Rev W. Williams and Mr P. Wright were also present. The usual large number of accounts were passed, and a letter was read from Mr W. C. Howe, district overseer, objecting to the Board fixing the poundage for the raising of the precept. On the motion of the Chairman, it was res lved to deduct the amount due to the Teachers' Superannuation Fund out of the School Board Grant, and to deduct 10s a month from the t, achers' salaries for the nt xt nine months and after 5s a month. It was pointed out thi t the fund was subscribed to by nearly all the teachers. VOLUNTARY HOSPITAL.-One fresh patient has been admitted, and one discharged convalescent since our last issue. Fifteen are now in. One hundred and fif y four have already been treated this year. Further gifts of money, old linen, bedding, flowers, Ac., are much needed. If every- one in the district would send one penny, or put one penny in the Hospital gate box, think what comfort it would be the means of bringing to many poor sufferers. "Buildings, however massive or beautiful, will perish, but deeds of practical charity such as Christ taught will never die."—A pretty little bazaar was held in the Empire Hall, Thomp. son-street, on November 24th and 25th. The stalls were most tastefuly decorated, and filled with very handsome and useful articles. Mrs Canm-ll' Mr* Dix, and other ladies presided at one fancy stall, the Misses Brooks, and Mits Budge at another fancy stall, and the Misses Williams and Miss H. Genner, &c., at the thirdifancy stall. Mrs Molin- eaux and Miss Isaac at the rtfreshment stall, Mr Ball at the game and rabbit stall. The only want was buyers, the attendance and takings being very small. PORTAL CONVENIENCE.—The inhabitants of the immediate neighbourhood near the junction of Kingsland-crescent and Cross-street, have long felt the need of a postal pillar-box, and some time ago about 70 residents of that district put their sig- natures to a petition praying that such convenience he granted them. This was sent to the Postmaster- General, and in a few days the following answer was received by the spokesman of the petitioners —With reference to the memorial signed by your- self and others, I am directed to inform you that a letter-box tvvill be placed at the corner of Cross- street and Kingslaiid-crescent, Barry,Ju compliance with yourrequfst. The letter-box will, doubtless. be appreciated by the residents in that district, as would one at the bottom of Kingsland-crescent. The American system in such matters seems to be superior to that in England. There the letter- boxes are very numerous and small. If you have not got a stamp, you merely put the money in the box with your letter. If you are posting a paper which is too large, you put the paper on the top of the box, far out of the reach of children, and it is collected. Such papers are never stolen. PUBLIC LIBRARIES' CordMITTRIC. -Councillor D. Morgan presirl, d over the mouthly meeting of the Public Libraries' Committee, held ia the Council- chamber, Gas and Water Offices, Holton-road, on Friday evening la-t, the other members present being Councillors J.

The question of re- arranging the catalogue of books was referred to the Book Selection Committee. Only one tender having been received for supplying coal to the various reading-rooms in the town, the Librarian was empowered to buy coal by the ton, as he re- quired it. The Local Government Review was ordered to be placed ,iu the Central Reading-room. It was resolved that the salary of the assistaut librarian (Mr R. McLeish) should be an increase of 4s, and a like amount twelve months hence, on condition that he retained the position. BARRY.

EASTBROOK. TRANSFER OF LICENSE.—At the Barry Dock Police-court on Monday last Mr J. H. Jones, solicitor, Cardiff, applied for a temporary transfer of the license of the Swan Hotel to Mr Cheltenham, formerly in the employ of Messrs S. and F. Biggs, Cardiff. Police-sergeant Abraham (Barry) was enabled to give the applcant a good character, and of being a highly respectable man during the past four years that he had known him. Formerly Mr Cheltenham resided at Corporation-road, Newport.
FOOTBALL NOTES. [BY "ATHLETE."] The Cardiff Macintosh met the Unionist Re- serves on Saturday, and, contrary to general expectation, were defeated by two goals to one. • Farmer Thomas, before half-time, scored both goals for the Unionists, aud Riden, for the visitors, in the second half. The Macintosh were next to Barry on the league table, and Saturday's match places them lower still. • Away the Barry men were less fortunate, for now they were engaged in thinking out the causes of their peculiar defeat at the hands of the Ebbw Vale team, who were the lowest on the league table. Four goals to one may be described as a crushing defeat, though not by any means a disas- trous one. Barry, played several men short, which account for the defeat. « • The Barry West End team met Canton Parish Church at Cardiff before a good crowd, and not- withstanding the tact that the homesters were two men short, they sustained their reputation, and won by two goals to one. « Minor local fights were thick on Saturday. The Cad, xton United visited Cardiff and fought a stiff game with the Rovers of River Bide. The result was a draw, two goals each, and the game a very hard fought one, for the local team played wiih several of their regular men missing. I am told that there is a growing coolness among the players, and that they seem quite indifferent of the career of their club. Without sustenance, a body will fail in strength, and if these young playeis persist in thtir innifference,1 they may be sure that the Cadoxton team will not long remain united. • • • A game interesting to school boys was played at Swansea between the Swansea Schools and Holton- road, Barry. The Swansea youngsters won by two goals to nothing.The Barry Old Boys played St. John's at CarcMkand were defeated by two goals to one. The District Juniors, who h"ve been fearfully elated by their victory over the Unionist Reserves, visited Trelewis, and gave the local team a thrashing to the extent of four goals to one. • 0 On Saturday last Dinas Powis were visited by that well-known Cardiff team, St. Andrews, and the match was witnessed by a large number of spectators. The game, which was mostly a for- ward one, proved to be very exciting, the home team missing several good chances to score. At the close, however, St. Andrew's ran out luck) w inners by tw o tries to one. For the homesters, T. Roce, of Ca I ox ton, who scored their only try, played a hard game in the forwards.

SN AP SHOTS. It is expected that at a meeting to be held to- night (Friday), the dispute between the joiners and their employers will be amicably settled. We were going to repeat that characteristic phrase about the ill-wind when we were assured that the present boom in the coal trade is due to the strike. There was less rainfall at Birry during the last quarter than any "ther tuwn ill the seveu counties of Walas, excepting Aberystywith. A jumble sale will be held at the empty shop, 114, Holton-road, on Saturday next, in the evening, the proceeds to be devoted to the funds of the Voluntary Hospital. There are two batchelor old gentlemen in this district who are thorough Bohemians, ardent hob- byists, and as report says, jolly good fellows. Can one imagine a more happy state of existence ? The sacred volumes used for swearing-in purposes at the Barry Dock Police-court having become much tatered, not to say filthy, Councillor Jotham, J.P., Cardiff, has furnished two new ones, which were used for the first time on Friday. At the Eisteddfod held last Saturday evening at the Welsh Congregational Chapel, the parties competing in the male voice competition were the Reders Buller party and the Piet Joubert party. It is hardly necessary to state that the former won. The well-known musician, Mr W. T. Samuel, was taken suddenly ill on Saturday evening last at the house of a friend—Mr Prtty-at Barry, where he was medically attended, and has since be, n confined. We are pleased to state that Mr Samuel has recovered sufficiently to be removed home, and, together with our numreous readers, we wish him a speedy return to convalescence. A letter from a sailor named William Kehr, a German, dated s.s. Centurion, Rosaria, Argentina, has been received by Pastor G. R. Coultas, of the Gospel Tent Mission. The writer explains that it is the first epistle he has written in the English language, and though there is a most amusing attempt at correctness in spelling, the construction of the letter is admirable. Mr A. Keynon Grey, the new manager of the Theatre Royal, Barry East, has had a first-class experience in the profession in London and the provinces. Mr Grey was for son.e time under the direction of Sir Augustus Harris, and many another well-known but less exalted actor-manager. He has been for some years with the present lessees of the Theatre Royal, and under his management the house, despite its misfortunes in the past, is sure to flourish. j That there is a difference between the spirit and the letter of many Acts of Parliament has long been suspected if not believed. Such is the case as respecting the W orkmen's Compensation Act, for Mr Chamberlain himself says, in answer to a query, that he certainly had no idea that piece-workers and casual labourers would be excluded from the benefits of the measure. We suppose there will have to be a bill to amend the Bill. Its our pretty legislative way. The fine steamer Merrimac, which will be grate- fully remembered by hundreds of Barry workmen, is considerably overdue on her voyage from Balti- more. This was the steamer that, while being repaired at the time of the coal-strike in the Com- mercial Dry Dock by Mr C. H. Bailey, proved a veritable God-send for hundreds of workmen who, by the wages earned on the steamer kept the wolf from the door. She was 400ft long, of 4,177 tons gross register, and formed one of Eldi-r-Dempster's splendid fleet. It is feared that Barry will see her no more, and that her gallant crew have found a watery grave beneath the surging Atlantic billows. Several members of the Barry School Board have expressed dissatisfaction with the lax way in which the rules of the Board are observed by teachers when administering corporal punishment. One member suggested that the rules of the Birken head School Board be adopttd. It is probable, it the present complaints increase, that at a near future date definite steps will be taken in the matter. Corporal punishment itself does not appear-in a highly civilised country-to be the proper method of punishment. It is a time- honoured custom, and it is hoped that, like many others, it will fade away before the onward march of education and natural refinement. It was a sight recently that made the sceptical more sceptical to behold the ex-president of the Barry Liberal Association and Major Wyndham Quin being driven around Barry Duck and shown Mr C. H. Bailey's works. Subsequently they dined together, and we have yet to learn whether Major Quin, in consequence of this little flirtation, has not nurtured serious intentions of becoming a Radical. As for Mr Graham becoming a Tory- well, we can only quote Lord Derby's famous American war phrase Never !— NEVER !— NEVER They were at dinner at a local hotel-about 20 gentlemen, many sons of old Neptune, jolly, gay, and flippant. A wicked Radical was of the com- pany, and he purposely started a political discussion by throwing a lump of Liberal lyddite in the shape of a well-adjectived condemnation of everything Tory. The cudgels were taken up, and things worked up to a heat that delighted this mischievous Radical, They talked of Cardiff, and necessarily of Mr Maclean then the Radical said how South Glamorgan was misrepresented, and a gentleman in the corner all alone, pricked up his ears and became flushed and pale alternatively as the wicked Radical lashed the sitting member's actions. Then, in a long-drawn and highly-coloured speech, he praised Mwjor Quin as a man and as a gentleman, winding up by saying that it was good job Mr Maclean was not representing South Glamorgan. At this the gentleman in the corner rose, turned to face the company, and bowed politely. It was Major Quin himself, and while the wicked Radical knew it all the time, the feelings of the other members of the company can only be imagined- they cannot be described. No OR YES ?—It is not pleasant to feel despon- dent and low-Bpirited-, nor to feel bilious and have pains in the back. Is there a way to move this unpleasant feeling? YeSI there is; experience teaches that OWEN'S CERTAIN PILLS will totally remove above complaints suraly and effectually. remove above complaints surely and effectually. Have you tried them ?—Depot OWEN, Chemist, Cadoxton.

J A —■ COLOSSAL PURCHASE. r MESSRS D. L. EVANS & CO. evidently are determined to make the Opening of their New Premises A MEMORABLE EVENT, and as they are working at tremendous pressure buying in HUGE CONSIGNMENTS of NEW DRAPERY and HOUSEHOLD GOODS, it looks as if THE GOOD TIMES ARE COMING in reality, so far, at least, as this part of Wales is concerned. '¡"J In ORDINARY times peopl2 come from all over the countryside to take advantage of the MARVELLOUS BARGAINS and the RECKLESS PRICES at which they may always be secured, but the wr SENSATIONAL VALUE 1IQ which is to inaugurate the Opening of the New Establishment is calculated to prove such a TREMENDOUS DRAW" that all BARRY FOLKS should be early if they wish to avoid THE RUSH, and possible disappointment • £- ■*■* "• A- -• — r As ALL the old stock has been cleared out, everything offered will be .v; NEW SEASON'S GOODS, and the reputation of this Firm for Selling THE BEST, as well as THE CHEAPEST, DRAPERY is the bes-t guarantee that, though prices may be ridiculous, the QUALITY of everything will be up to the HIGIIEST STANDARD. J The NAME is sufficient? By this time everybody knows that a thing is GOOD if it came from D. L. EVANS AND CO., 104 & 106, Holton Road, Barry, THE CHEAPEST AND BEST DRAPERS IN S. WALES.
BURIAL INCIDENT at BARRY DOCK. THE METHOD (IF ISSUING CER- TIFICATES. AN UNDERTAKER BROUGHT TO BOOK. At the meeting of the Public Works Committee ct the Barry District Council on Tuesday evening, held under the presidency of Mr E. B. Smith-Jones, the caretaker of the cemetery, Mr Thomas, reported that Mr Janus Jones had not, produced the cer, ifl- cate of death at the time of the Lurial of a person at the cemetery, but bad communicated with Mr Jones upon the matter, who replied as follows :— You will note that we have a doctor's certificate, but no registrar's certiticate, as he is away from home but independently (f that, you have noth- ing to do with it, and you can leave the body un- covered at your own I i,k, and I will run mine so far as the certificate is concerned."—Mr Jones, therefore, declared that the carataker at tie c'metery had nothing to do with the certificate. He further stated that the Act required that th. c rti6cate should be deliver, d up to the mi ister or any other person who performs a religious cere- mony. The minister was supposed to show it to the caretaker before the burial took place. Th Council's rules, however, prescribed that all certificates were to be produced at He office at the time application Wf18 made for the grave space. That had been proved to be inconvenient, because oftentimes they did not get the certificate from the registrar until a few horns before the bmial took place. In this particular burial the minister was the Rev T. M. Rees, and the great object of producing the certificate was to make it impossible for anyone to be buried until the death had beet. fully certified. If this sort of thing was to go on, however, it left an opening for burials to take place under very serious circumstai ces. Mr J. L. Davids When did that happen ? The Clerk Quite recently. The letter is dated 14th November. I think it is a question whether it would not be wise on the part of the committee to go back to the old rule, so that no order for the burial shall be given until the certificate of death is produced. This rule had been departed from in order to consult the conxenience of the under- takers. The Chairman said it was a serious irregularity when a body was presented for burial without either a doctor's certificate or the registrar's being produced. He quite agreed that this sort of ttiiug should be mad impoi-sible in the future. The Clerk explained that the mit ister who per- formed the service without having produced either of the certificates, was liable to a penalty of 40s, and, in his opinion, if the case was reported, to the Registrar-General, that penalty would be imposed in this case. Mr James Jones, who attended at the request of the committee, said he had made arrangements for the funeral, and found out that they had not the registrar's certificate. He told the minister about this, and the lal ter replied: "You give it me again." The man was buried without the care- taker interfering in any way, but Mr not been asked for a certificate before in is y the cartaker. It was clear however that the minister was responsible, and not himself. He had never been asked for a certificate at Cardiff, eThPe^Lirma°nCrd0Dthat it was a matter in the first place between the minister and the registrar, and then between the caretaker and the minister. The Clerk That is so. Mr James Jun, s said he did not think he was doing wrong at the time. The Chairman (to Mr Jones) Did you receive a letter from the caretaker ? Mr Jones No, but he bent again and told me that he would not cover up a grave until he had received the certificate. He thought it very strange that t) is request should come after the burial had taken place, and that was w hat made I him write that letter, because the care aker oug'-t j to have stuped the funeral if it w as not I gal. j The Clerk The minister in this matter is incur- ring a very heavy responsibility. Mr Junes I told the minister, and he said you can go on and allow things as they are. The Clerk He is breaking the law in that way. Mr Jooes Of couse, I didn't know anything about that. Mr David Morgan I don't understand you quite whether there was anything asked before the burial took place. Mr Jones Nothing at all. Nothing, until the service had been over. I would have been quite vtillirg to a op the funeral and return. It was Nurge Evans' fault and r,ot mine, because I could in, -t get the registrar's certificate. I was not pre- sent at the death. Mr Evan Jones: Do I understand Mr Jones to say that he has gone then many times without having the registrar's certificate ? Mr James Jones Yes. And we have gone there without having the doctor's certificate in one case. When it was found out it was produced some days after the burial. Mr Evan Jones Have you buried anyone under similar circumstances to this, without the registrars or doctor's certificate being produced ? Mr James Jones We had a doctor's certificate in this case, but cot the registrar's. I know of a case where there was no registrar's or doctor's cer- tificate produced until two or threedays afterwards, I whelt they f.-u ,<i nut what- would happen. The CI ait m^n Tlds iu itself is a very serious irregularity, a> d the Couucil should take action to prev nt its recurrence in the future. Mr James Joi, s having retired from the room, it was decided, on the motion of Mr D. Morgan, seconded by Mr Evan Jones, that the caretaker be written to again on the matter, and that the Council adhere strictly to the rules to prevert any burial aking place until the certificate was pro- duced at the office. Mr David Morgan also sug- gested that they write statii g their dissatisfaction to the Ministers' Fraternal Association, and this was agreed to.
THEFT OF COAL. A COMMON PRACTICE. Thomas Ashton, a platelayer, was charged at the Barry Dock Police-court on Friday with steal- ing 401be of coal, the property of the Barry Railway Company, on the 16th ult.—Dock-constable Harper said he siw piisoner carrying a bag on the day in question. He asked the man what itjeon- tain-d, and he said it was coal he had picked up Iter Colebroak Farm, on the Barry Railway.— Prisoner said he had noticed the coal lying there f r a week past, and did not think there could be much harm in his raking it.—Richard Jones, labourer, 11. Palmerstown-road, deposed that pri- soner did not have the coal from the railway.- Servant Davies also ga I't' evidence, and this being the prisoner's first offence, he was fined 7s 6d, or seven tlayi;A like charge was preferred against Wm Wliite, a labourer, w i-o was in company with the last defendant, and als i took 40lbs of coal on the 16th ult. —Dock-uotis:able Weeks proved this case, and a like penalty with the same alternative was inflicted on him.
