BARRY FUND FOR RESERVISTS' FAMILIES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE RABRY 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 thp land is, I 11.111 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 di^rict miy 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.

CORRESPONDENCE. [We do not hold ourselves responsible for the views expressed by our correspondents.—ED.] HONESTY HONEST. TO THE EDITOR OF THF "BARRY HERALD." SIR,—Morths ago your contemporary suggested a pillar-box in Kicgsland-crescent; m body took official notice of it.—Two months ago a certain family in the Crescent went to the trouble and ex- pence of getting up a memorial, which was presented to every householder in the Crescent, signed, and duly forwarded to the Postmaster- General, who sent a reply to the memorialists stating that a box would be placed, as desiied, in due course. A member of the family afore-men- tioned called at the office, and asked them to kindly say that the Postmaster had conceded the request of the memorialists, and a box would be placed in due course. Last week your contemporary stated that this was due in consequence of a letter that appeared in their paper. Need I say more ?—I am, etc., A LOVER OF HONESTY. ——— FREE TEA AND ENTERTAINMENT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE "BARRY FLERALD." SIR, W ill you kindly grant me the special favour of a little space in your valuable paper to state that the Holton-road English Baptists' Young People's Society of Christian Endeavour intend giving a free tea and entertainment on Wednesday, December 27th inst, to as many of the poorer children of Barry Dock as funds will permit, so that the hearts of many of these little ones may be cheered and their hves brightened for a few hours on this festive season of the year. Christmas is a time of the year which all look forward to with expectations of festive enjoyment and rejoicing but there are many families in the Barry district just now who have no prospect of festivity, but, rather, poverty and want stare them in the face. It is for the children of such homes we propose providing this free tea and entertain- ment. Gifts in money or in provisions for this fund will be thankfully received by—T. PANDY JOHN, Kelvin House, Kingsland-crescent, Barry Dock. CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR'S CHEER FOR THE NAVAL BRIGADE AT THE FRONT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE "BARRY HERALD." SIR,-The gallantry of our sailors, as well as of our soldiers, is in the mind of the whole country. Jack, with his naval guns, came to the rescue at Ladysmith and turned the tide. The battle of Graspans, or Enslin, which has just been fought on the road to Kimberley, has been called the "sailors' battle," so heavily did the brave Blue- jackets and marines of the naval brigade, both officers and men, suffer but, as might be expected from Jack's dauntless gallantry, the battle was a victory. I am honoured by th3 Navy with the title of Mother," and I am anxious to cheer the hearts of the brave boys at Christmas and the New Year. There are between 600 and 1,000 men at the front, and I want to send each a Christmas pudding, a ration of tobacco, and a pipe, and possibly socks, to re-place those worn out in climbing kopjes. I have consulted the Bluejackets at the home ports as to these gifts, and they suggested and voted vigorously for puddings, "baccy," and socks. I shall be sending out immediately, and I shall be very glad to receive help from all friends of the Navy who may be disposed to aid me. All gifts, marked Christmas and New Year's Cheer for Jack at the Front," will be duly acknowledged. Cheques to be drawn to Agues E. Weston, or paid into Royal Sailors' Rest Account, National Provincial Bank, Landport, Portsmouth." All cheques and Postal Orders to have and Co." written across them. Will my kiud helpers address to me, "Miss Weston, Royal Sailors' Rest, Portsmouth," and send at once, as Christmas and New Year are at hand. Jack's rations when fighting are often short, and his privations great, and it cheers his heart to know that his friends in Eugland never forget this.- Yours very truly, AGNES E. WESTON. Royal Sailors' Rest, Portsmouth. ===-==--=-==:=.==-====--========

DISTHICT NEWS. CADOXTON. CONSERVATIVE CLUB.—On Wednesday evening in last week an enjoyable smoker was held at the Conservative Club aud Institute, Vere-street, Mr L. T. Owen presiding. An address was delivered by Mr J. F. McClive, of Cardiff, on current politics. INDEPENDENT ORDER OF GOOD TEMPLARS.—On Thursday evening, the 30th ult., a very well- attended social meeting of the I.O.G.T. was held iu the assembly-room of the Shaftesbury Temper- ance Hott:l, Brother James, district chief templar, presiding. Brother James was suppmted by Mrs Dure, deputy grand chief templar. nd B other Foulkes, chief templar St. David's L dge. The president, in a very encouraging address, insisted on the objects of the Order, and the means by which they were to attain that object—the saving of the multitude from the curse of drink. A very pleasing concert was held during the evening, in which the following members took part:—Songs, Sisters Katie Evans, Jenkins, Dure (junr.), and the Brothers Tippett. Recitations, Sister Evans, Brothers Tookes, Pearce, Willey, and Jenkins. SCIENCE AND RELIGION.—This was the title of a paper read by Mr J. Donaldson before the literary society of Bethel Presbyterian Church, Court-road, on Monday evening last. The Pastor (Rev J. L. Jenkins) presided, and during the course of his paper Mr Donaldson quoted various scientific authors to show that science could not be antago- nistic with religion. There was a film of mystery surrounding both religion and science, and both religious and scientific men agreed that there was a darkness beyond which they could not fathom. Science showed a distinction between the spiritual and natural man, but could not give a definition of what it was. Revealed religion stepped in and said it was Christ. THEATRE ROYAL.—The production which the new management of the Theatre Royal, have placed before their patrons this week is a stirring piece, the scene of which is laid in and near Paris. There are many realistic scenes in the Fight for Life," and that representing the St. Arno's Station signal box, the railway and passing express, as well as the characters who give life to the scene, is a fine piece of acting and stage setting With regard to the actors, the sympathy aroused by Jean Cardell (MrD'Arcy Kelway), the crippled son of Gips-y Cardell, a tigress (Miss Maud Yorke), and Marie, a blind girl (Miss Florence Lloyd), is genuine and well deserved. Couit Adria du Maily (Mr Edmund Stone) and Mons. Ferrand, a miser (Mr Wilfred E. Clarke), are both well supported, the latter especially. Mons. Ferrand is, of course, a greedy man, and hence a bad man, and proves himself so to the end. Mr Clarke does credit to his character. Susanne (Miss Leslie Wamer) is a most pretty and unassuming girl, and Miser Ferrand's niece, acts her part most prettily. She, of course, belongs to the comic element, and is valiantly supported by her young man, Dan Murphy (Mr Arthur Kendall), a very smart dancer. During the evening Miss Florence Lloyd recites Kipling's Absent-minded Beggar," and collections have been made for the Daily Mail's Transvaal Refuge Fund. EXTRAORDINARY SUCCESS in Gardening Opera- tions follow the sowing of OWEN'S 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.

CARDIFF MAN INJURED.—A plasterer, named Isaac Tarr, aged 50, married, and living in Wim- boum-street, East Moors, Cardiff, on Saturday morning met with an accident while working on some houses near the hydraulic sheds, Barry Dick. He fell a distance of 25ft, severely bruised his right side, and was removed to the Accident Hospital, Kinsland-crescent, attended by Dr Six- smith, and detained. ST. MARY'S CHURCH SCHEME.—On Wednesday evening a meeting was held in the chapel-of-ease of St. Mary, Holton-road, to consider the remaining debt on the present building, and to proceed with the scheme for the erection of a church. The Rector (Rev E. Morris, B.A.) occupied the chair, and various suggestions were made for the liquidation of the debt of £ 36 on the present building. With reference to the new chnrch it was resolvt d, on the the proposition of Mr W. Phillips, seconded by Mr E. K. Cannell, That this meeting pledges itself to use its utmost endeavours to proceed with the building of a new church, and thanks Mrs Jenner for so generously starting the work by her hand- some promise of f500 towards this obj. ct. A committee of prominent members was formed for the furtherance of the resolution. BARRY. SALE OF WORK.-A sale of work was held on Thursday and Friday last at the Presbyterian Hall, the proceeds being in aid of the buiidiug fund of the Presbyterian Church, High-street. AN HOUR IN THE MOON.—Owing to Mr Arthur Mee's inability to be present to lecture on the above, the usual weekly meeting of the Barry Literary and Social Society was not held this week, and has been postponed. CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH.—The services of this church are now being held each Sunday at 11 a m. and 6.30 p.m. at the Romilly Hall, Barry.

It is the intention of Mr Cory to present a further sum of £100 when the chapel is built next year. 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. R. HOPKINS, Pharmaceutical Chemist, 88, High-street, Barry. MUSICAL SUCCESS.—At the examination held at Cardiff last week in connection with the R.A.M. and R.C.M., Miss A.

NONCONFORMIST CHAPEL PRACTICES. DISCUSSION AT THE FREE CHURCH COUNCIL. The members of the Barry Free Church Council resumed their discussion at their meet- ing on Tuesday e\ ening last on the pertinent queries promulgated by the Rev Christmas J. Lewis at a form- r meeting, which were pub- lished at the time in the HERALD. Mr E. B. Smith-Jones (tin; president) occupied the chair, and was supported by a large attendance. It will be remembered that chief among the questions desired by the rev gentleman to be discussed were the system of paying compli- mentary visits by the pastor to his people, and whether they were of any spiritual benefit, the methods of advertising the subject, making the services attractive, and other practices coun- tenanced and encouraged ut the present time. Mr J. O. Davies, who at the last meeting moved the adjournment of the debate, re- opened the discussion, and animadverted upon the extremely pertinent suggestions made by the Rev Christmas Lewis. It was not always that they came into conflict with their minis- ters (be said), yet it would be wise if they did so with the same frankness as had been exhibited by the rev. gentleman. He resisted with some spirit the statement, or at least the suggestion, that pastoral visitation was de- moralising, and claimed that if done voluntarily it had an elevating effect. Very often it assisted to remove doubt and anxiety from those whom circumstances were burdening. There were disclosures made to a minister, too, which no layman could ever extract. It was not necessary, in order to do good, to go to the homes of the people with a Bible in hand, but it was necessary to know some- thing of the social condition of the people before a minister could touch their hearts and lead them to a higher and better state. Bodily sickness was not the most painful suffering there was the sickness of circumstances which weighed down a heart more surely. This was, he claimed, also a means of study by cultivating the power of observation. As for making their services attractive it was their duty to do any- thing unless they violated a great principle among Christian men to do anything rather than see a man go to the devil. (Cheers). The discussion was continued in an edifying manner by the Rev J. Mydyr Evans, who did not think they should take the Rev Christmas Lewis's declarations as being made with any other object than for raising discussion and thus doing good. His indictment was one for laymen to answer. The Rev Aaron Davies said he had known gteat mischief to result from visiting, while there was no doubt also that it bad in some cases served an excellent purpose. He had himself known a casual conversation over a cup of tea to lead to the conversion of a man. The laymen should in the ordinary cases do the visiting and leave the pastor to do it when special circumstances required. Rev W. D. Lee Cann declared that he did not like anything of an artificial character in connection with his people. The Rev T. Pandy John strongly supported the practice of visiting the homes of the people to enjoy friendly interchange of ideas and strive to strengthen their religious desires. Often he had found a word at the fireside to have more influence than that from the pulpit. Mr S. R. Jones said that if there was any fault with the diaconate of the churches, it was because the churches selected the busiest men to fill the office. The Rev Ben Evans retorted that the churches selected the busiest men because they knew from experience that these would find time to do the work devolving upon them. One minister was asked by another how many people he could visit in a day? "Really (he replied) I couldn't say. How many can you ?'' "Oh (he reiterated) I visit 30 in a day." That minister was from the place in six months. (Laughter.) The object of visiting ought to be to try and leave the family better than they found it. (Hear, hear.) The President, in closing the debate, declared that a minister visited his people not alone for the good he could do them, but for the good they often did to him.
FOOTBALL NOTES. [By "ATHLIETIB."l The Unionises proved too good for Pontardawe on Saturday, and a six goals to one victory ought to give the lucals a lift up the League table. • From start to finish it was evident that Barry had plenty in hand, although the young eleven sent up by the Western Club had a lot of real grit and continually gOL away. As a match the game was, consequently, not indicative of the true form of the homesters as a practice, it did them a lot of good. • They appear against Porth on Saturday,and while the whole eleven are individually strong, they are not up to concert pitch in combination, especially in the forward ranks. Thursby was especially strong in the front of the posts, and Williams on the wing, with few opportunities, showed superb form. The Woodland Villa and Cadoiton United Seconds played a stiff game on Saturday. These are reckoned crack junior teams, and the game ended in a draw, one goal each. < • Barry West End played a match with Cardiff Old Boys on Saturday last at Cardifl, and after au exciting and fast game, the latter were the victors by four goals to two, • The principal Rugby game in the district on Saturday was that between Dinas Powis and New- port Extras. It was most hotly fought, and up to half-time the advantage most certainly lay with the local team. Towards the close, however, Newport showed their superiority, and when time was called, their score was one goal two tries, against three tries. Chapman converted for the Newport men, and H. Beer scored twice for the homesters, and H. Williams once. SATURDAY'S FIXTURES. ASSOCIATION.

SNAP SHOTS. During last month there were 23 burials at the cemetery. Lord Palmerston once said that dirt was clean matter put in the wrong place. The prettiest nurse in the Barry district will only remain a day or two longer. She is at present at the Theatre Royal. A true working man has been defined by a member of the Barry Liberal and Radical Associa- tion as a Trades Unionist. We are pleased to learn that Mr R. W. Hall, M.R.C.V.S., is progressing favourably from his severe accident. Mr Hall has engaged a qualified veterinary surgeon to manage the practice for him during his disablement. On Tuesday 'evening next the prizes will be delivered to the successful students of the Barry County School, at Romilly Hall, Barry, by Mrs Jenner, Wenvoe Castle. Principal T. F. Roberts, vice-chancellor of the University of Wales, will address the meeting. It has been resolved to form in the Cardiff and Swansea districts a local association of Old Aber- ystwyth students, with the object of holding occa- sional meetinge. Old students who wish to join may send in their names either to Miss Gilpin, County School, Barry, or Dr G. A. Stephens, Swansea. Councillor Jose (examining bill for things sup- plied to the men at the Gas Works, which came up to be passed at the last Finance Committee): I don't believe we know one-half of what goes on in this Council."—Councillor White (after due reflection): "Perhaps it is well for our peace of mind." [Secret laughter from the fat officials present.] On Monday week next the Army and Navy Veterans' Association bold their annual dinner at the Windsor Hotel. The Association is under the patronage of several distinguished soldiers and others, and the annual dinner is an event which is looked forward to with much interest. The Mayor of Cardiff presides. It is earnestly hoped that all veterans will present themselves at the homes at six o'clock on Monday evening, to be formally in- troduced to his Worship the Mayor of Cardiff. Tickets for the dinner may be had of Mr Huelin, the hon. secretary, at the Liberal Club. An interview with the big tour-faced clock sur- mounting the new offices of the Barry Company is, to say the least of it, an entertaining occupation. The clock took the greatest pride in showing its new works, put together by Messrs W. Potts and Son, Leeds, and got quite confidential when it in formed me that it would go for eight days without winding. Its four faces leered at me as it struck twelve mid-day, the sound from its one-ton beli being sonorous and awe-inspiring, especially w ith a young man who has just managed to fall up to a height of about 60ft from the ground. The pendulum, which wags like a woman's tongue, in- formed me that she weighed half-a-hundred weight, and the pendulum bob, an article in the clock business I am completely ignorant of, gave out that she weighed 2 cwt. It was an interest- ing interview, and when I h ad safely traversed a few dirty ladders, knocked a couple of scaffolding poles down, and carried away about half-a-hundred weight of dust and shavings which rightly belonged to the building, I realised that we possessed a building and clock which was superior to any other put to commercial uses in the whole of Wales.

SUCCESS OF BARRY VOLUNTEERS. WINNERS OF THE WINDSOR PLATE THE SIXTH TROPHY OF THE SEASON. A GLORIOUS CLOSE. On Saturday last, at the Drill Hall, Cardiff, the No. 11 (Barry) Company of Glamorgan Artillery Volunteers were placed first in a repository competition, conducted with Colonel Fisher, of Swansea, as umpire. Out of the eight companies competing, Barry were placed first, with 166 marks, the No. 9 Company (Penarth) receiving 165 marks, and the No. 10 Company (Penarth) 162 marks. This com- petition may be regarded as the blue ribbon of the Glamorgan Volunteers, inasmuch as the winning company becomes the holder of the Windsor Plate. Out of six competitions during the present year the Barry Company have had the unprecedented record of winning five, and coming second for the other. hey have won the 64 pounder competition at Lavernock, the prize of the best company, and the Cup for the best attendance at the annual inspection also the 9100 Challenge Cup from Shoeburyness, besides the present repository competition, and the second prize in the 40 pounder competition. Sergeant Major Wakeham acted as No. 1 of the Barry Company, whose succecs was referred to eulogistic terms by Colonel Fisher.
WAIT IT WILL PAY YOU A COLOSSAL PURCHASE. r MESSRS D. L. EVANS & CO. evidently are determined to make the Opening of their New Premise SATURDAY, DEC. 16th, 1899, 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 rnnn nmiur. inn rAHmrr 111 UUUU lliTIGd ARC in reality, so far, at least, as this part of Wale. ia concerned.

BARRY ACCIDENT HOSPITAL. THE CONTRIBUTION FROM THE RATES. DIFFERENCE WITH THE NURSING ASSOCIATION. OUTSPOKEN REMARKS BY THE CHAIRMAN. On Friday evening at the meeting of the District Council Finance Committee, held under the presidency of Councillor J. H. Jose, J.P., a letter was r?ad from Major-General Lee, bon. treasurer to the Nursing Association and Acci- dent Hospital, in which, after thanking the Council for their resolution granting zC406 annually towards the support of the Accident Hospital, it was stated that at the last meeting of the Executive Committee of the Association it was resolved to ask the Council to guarantee any expenditure above the income at the end of the year. The income of the ward was £ 650, and it was estimated that the expenditure this year would be over JE800. If the Council were not prepared to guarantee the over-expenditure, the letter stated, the Executive Committee saw no alternative but closing the ward. The Chairman expressed himself as very much surprised at the contents of the letter. He had himself expected a vote of thanks from the Executive Committee for the Council's resolution, especially as they intended next year to see if they could not increase the annuity. He further asked if there was justi- fiable reason for a letter of that description being seut them ? The Council was asked to guarantee any amount spent above the income of the ward. It would be better for the Council to take the ward over itself than agree to that. The Clerk remarked that the Council could easily limit the amount they would guarantee. The letter was referred to the Council.
I A BARRY ELOPEMENT. SEQUEL IN A WORCESTER COURT. At Worcester Police Court on Tuesday Annie Richards, a married woman, was charged with stealing a quantity of linen and china belong- ing to William Osborn, Cadoxton, for whom she lately acted as housekeeper. The prosecu- tor stated that after remaining as housekeeper for some time she asked him to marrv her. They agreed, and were married at the Cardiff Registrar's Office on March 2nd of the present year. She described herself as a widow. He afterwards discovered that the woman's former husband was alive. They lived together as man and wife until November 8th, and then she left and articles to the value of X2 were missing. Cross-examined He had known defendant and her husband 10 or 11 years.

ORATORIO AT BARRY. GRAND PERFORMANCE OF THE « MESSIAH." SUCCESSFUL GATHERING. RILLIANT DISPLAY OF VOCAL TALENT. A. sublime theme is unfolded in language the simple and most noble, the most picturesque joetic. Tenderness, purity, and an almost letic elevation are the attributes of this lerful oratorio." This quotation appropriately 3 out the vista presented by the excellent tmance of this immortal work at the Romilly- Barry, on Wednesday evening. It was the ail theme no less than the fact that its rJ- ments were met in a sublime manner by lei that made him dedicate it to his fellow ures. A great musical work, the Messiah stands pre-eminent in the list of oratorio-a ;h of art that arose, singularly enough, f a failure to naturalise Italian opera in Eng- early in the last century. Ihis oratorio has iccetding generations taken a firm hold on the sh heart, and it is believed that there is a ience from the competitive spirit rampant in s towards the cultivation of beautiful, in- g oratorio. Sir Frederick Bridge, it will be _A nbered, at the last National Eisteddfod at ff pleaded for the oratorio, and while that sman's statement is true that for some years -mances of that character have been confined cathedrals, it is, nevertheless, an undeniable hat the first time the Messiah was per- d was in a music-hall Even at Barry there ot wanting indications of a deeper interest rks of this truly religious character. The hall acked from floor to ceiling with an audience vas singularly attentive and appreciative, A of regret was early felt that the Temperance would, after all, be led by other than T. Samuel, but that gentleman's continued g prevented him from attending, and Mr J. F. I, of Cardiff, appeared at the rostrum in his -an incident that immediately won the of the audience. The fdct that Mr Proud cted such an admirable performance is ent to indicate his efficiency, seeing that his es were requisitioned at the last moment, he had not enjoyed the benefit of arsaJ. Mr Paul Draper's capable orchestra, 'mented by the services of Miss P. J. lms, Cadoxtou, at the pianoforte, also ren- material aid in promoting its success, and .avy scores were all rendered with a taste ond )ny that wete alike pleasing aud enjoyable. .)and performed all its part, even to the ral Symphony, which is the abiding joy of so lovers of the art, and all through gave un- tcable proof of rigid traiding. As for the they acquitted themselves in a manner that rond praise. Possessing a fine, compact e of tone, the voices blended beautifully, but opranos undoubtedly surprised everyone. were really excellent voices, and as good as yet been heard in the place. It would be JUS to attempt a detailed description of the performance, but in the Hallelujah Chorus" touched the high-water mark, the audience ntly upstanding during a rendering that d hearty applause, and even an encore. F. Proud, who, it is well-known, refused to away from well-ordered conventiality at f some time ago in the performance of ah by the eisteddfod choir, remained obdu- id kept the true character of the work, and lisite theme well before his audience from 0 finish. "Worthy is the Lamb and the n choruses were also given excellently, and regrettable to many that several choruses— y Thanks be to God "—had to be omitted :r that the artistes from Cardiff might be i to catch the last train at 10 o'clock. As soloists, they acquitted themselves with credit to their already good names. Miss iOne, of Barry, best known to local musicians m, sang up to her best reputation. She I with greater confidence and care, perhaps, ither of the quartette engaged, and the aria )ice Greatly," at once won her a way to the of her auditors. Then, again, no person ;ail to be inspired by her singing of He ?eed His Flock and «• I know that my ner livetb." Miss Mary Richards, of ity, appeared in a very good voice in "He spised," this pathetic solo being one of the effective of the evening. Mr Richard .s, the possessor of a very sweet tenor voice, quitted himself admirably, and was heartily d, while Mr Emlyn Davies, R.C.M., London, ss, was really a fine sihger, who has a talent bound to make him win his way to the front f vocalists.

GOLF AT BARRY. SUGGESTED IMPROVEMENT. The Barry Golf Club have just had Hunter, (the well-known professional of the Sandwich Club), I down on their links, to advise them as to the best way of laying out an 18-hole course. They feel that their links will not be so fully patronised until the club has followed the fashion and put down 18 holes in place of their present nine boles. The Club has decided to deny itself a professio; ol until about March next, and in tbe meantime devote its funds, which in a young club are never too plentiful, entirely to employing the additional labour necessary to getting the 18 holes into good j order. They intend having a professional again aj soon as the new course is in playable conditioi, and in IIny case about March. The scheme wi icn the club has in hand is a good on ana wi 1 no doubt prove entirely successfu i.-Tiie scores in the Ladies' Medal competition were as fo.lows Score H'cap Net.
