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.
