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.
