BARRY FUND FOR RESERVISTS' FAMILIES. TO THE ID] TOR OF THE "RARity HEIMALD." SIR, -In al parts of this country funds are being started for the families of Reservists who have re-joine 1 their regiments, and I think the town of Barry should do its share in this matter. Th( great wave of Imperial patriotism which is fljwing through the length and breadth of t'<e land is, I am sure, to be fouud in Barry, and as Chairman of the Barry Urban District Council, I shall be very pleased t< receive any subscriptions which the inhabitant* of this di trict my wish to give. The IJia- trict Council have appointed a committer 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 kn- wn to our readers that th. pay of a Reservist allocated to his wife and children is not t-ufficient 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 leat 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. Amounts already acknowledged S157 4 Of Additional Subscriptions: Mr J. C.

EXTENSION OF BOUND- ARIES APPLICATION TO THE COUNTY COUNCIL. DEPUTATION TO THE LOCAL GOVERN- MENT COMMITTEE. AN INQUIRY GRANTED. [BY OUR SPECIAL REPORTER.] This (Thursday) morning the Barry Urban District Council applied to the Local Govern- ment Committee of the Glamorgan County Council, sitting at the County Offices, Cardiff, for power to extend their district to re-divide it into wards, and to increase the number of its representatives. Aldf rmaii Walter H. Morgan presided. A deputation from the Barry Dis- trict Council attended, consisting of Councillors E. B. Smith-Jones, J. A. Mauaton, Mr J. Arthur Hughes (clerk), Mr J. C. Pnrdoe (sur- veyor), Mr W. C. Howe (overseer), and also Dr O'Donnell, Mr Kay (agent to the Hon. Ivor Churchill Guest), and Mr Laurence Williams (under-sheriff). There was no opposition represented. THE APPLICATION. Mr J. Arthur Hughes said that the Council wished to take over the parish of Sully, as it was already witl.in the rii-trict of the Port Sanitar\ Authority, and within the Barry district as far as the supply of water was concerned, and within the Parliamentary right for the supply of gas. Large smelting works had beon started in Sully, and the Barry Company had extended their docks there. There was a general opinion that Sully would soon be built over, and he understood from Mr Kay that a laige portion of the land bad already been let for building purposes. The Parish Council had been notified of the Barry district Council's application, but he had received no reply. EXPECTED OPPOSITION. In answer to Mr O. H. Jones, Mr Hughes said he had received no communication from the Llnndaff and Dinas Powis Rural District Council. Mr Kay said the Hon. Ivor Churchill Guest, who owned the whole of Sully, said there bad been no arrangement between the Counncil aud themselves. The parish contained 1,000 acres, and 50 acres had been let to a firm for smelting works. There were 40 acres of land let for building purposes. The sum of £ 20,000 was now being speut on the smelting works, and they found it somewhat awkward when they required to lay any mains or drains on the land which was being developed. The deputation then retired. THE DECISION. Alderman J. C. Meggitt thereupon stated that there was no real benefit to Barry in the matter, and as it was very desirable that the ex- tension should not be delayed for 18 months or two years, he moved that a local enquiry be held and the Commissioners go into the facts and report to the County Council. Mr J. Blandy Jenkins seconded. The Chairman considered that a prima facie case justifying the enquiry had been made out, and the resolution having been carried, Mr J. BIandy Jenkits, Alderman W. H. MathiiS, and Mr Edward Knox (Margaiu) were appointed to hold the enquiry, no date being fixed. Ponarth District Council having also made out a prima facie case for extension of bound- aries, it was agreed to huld the two enquiries the same day.
A DIP INTO KIPLING. PAPER BY GENERAL LEE. Major-General H. H. Lee, RF., J.P., reada paper on Kipling and his works before the Barry Literary and Social Society at the Church Mission Hall, Bairy, on Tuesday evening last. Mr Alfred Jackson, solicitor, presided over a moderate atten- dance of members, the majority ef whom were ladies.-General Lee prefaced his paper with a criticism of Kipling's critics, and, in the course of his reading, quoted largely from the poetical and prose works of the new author, whose genius was so versatile and whose religions feelings were so deep, despite the many evidences to the contrary to be found in a large number of his works. Gent-ral Lee thought the first and second Jangle Books to rank foremost among the prose works of the gr. at author, and these to be closely followed by "Soldiers Three," the three principal crea- tions in which could well, and had been, likened to Dumas' Three Muisketeers," A large portion of the paper was devoted to ex. tracts from the poetical works of Kipling—that peculiar poetry, which is stamped with so much originality, realism, and vulgarity, according to accepted canons of modern writers. General Lee showed that a strong affiniy between Burns and Kipling existed, and how both poets were inclioad to take and call things as they found them, putting before their readers in the plainest possible manner the shortcomings of man and woman. The bold- ness, the reckl ssness, and vulgarity of KipiingV s luiers, their native gallantry to the womankind, and strong and overpowering human sympathy for every kind, which is not so noticeable to the common eye, gave General Lt-e an opportunity of quoting some of Kipling's religious poptry, which has made such a tremendous impression upon the English nation of to-day. General Lee was heartily thanked for his piper, which was thoroughly enjoyable to those who had the pleasure ofjiatening to it.—Mr J. R. Anderson, Captain Hamilton Murrell, Rev H. H. Stewart, Mr D. Sibbering Jones, and the Chairman spoke in vel Y appreciative terms both of the paper and the subject.

BUSINESS ENTERPRISE. RE-OPENING OF MR D. L. EVANS' PREMISES. VAST AND GIGANTIC IMPROVEMENT. IMMENSE FACILITIES FOR A BRISK TRADE. With the advancing age of the town its institutions, no less than its business premises, must, in the natural development of its trade, extend and become worthy of the place that it makes for itself among important centres of industry and population. This was the satisfy- ing conclusion that forced itself upon a repre- sentative of the HERALD as he one day thi- week wended his way down Holton-rold. His progress was arrested and his attention attrac- ted, in common with otlnrs, to the transforma- tion that had occurred. A temporarv, bare wocdem hoarding- generally a contractor'* cloak and the sure harbinger of some structural improvenumt-harl been removed, and in its place stood a magnificent shop-front. 'Ihere were two wide windows, with huge plateglass panes, and in the cei tie a well-appointed doorway led to the business premises (f Messt* D. L. Evans aito Co. The change from the old to the new appeared like that only possible by the magic genii associated with the Arabian Nights or the mystic movements known only in fairyland, the spacious, well-dressed, and effective character of the windows being in marked contract to these pillar-separated fronts that stood there previously. Mapping inside to view the completeness of this extensive and desirable change, the interior was an equal revelation. Meetii g the enterprising head of the no less enterprising fir m, our representative at once piled on the interrogatories. Tell us something of this remarkable change how far does your premises extend to the rear, for instance F was the first query. About 70ft., replied Mr Evans, courteously. The shop is also in one, while it was previously cut up into small sections. There was no disposition on the part of Mr Evans to talk until our representative passed some remarks of admiration about the wide staircase facing the doorway leading to the second floor, which is one huge showroom. In the centre, admitting light from a glass roof, i- a wide, square aperture with a balustrade, through which light may easily flow to the ground:floor-an inestimable boon in the selec- tion of goods in which the niceties of shade colouring may be thoroughly appreciated by the ladies with more definiteness than by means of an artificial light. An adjective upon the use- ful character of this improvement failed to elicit anything a simple phrase of approval from Mr Eva' A system of cash railways running from ail directions up and below stairL4 found their termini—like those leading to Char- ing Cross- in a cash desk raised considerably above the level of the ground in the centre of the spacious shop. Essaying a remark upon the extensive character of the additions drew Mr Evans out. The building is practically a new one. Be sides running it back, he said, as I have already told you, it is erected to a height level with the roof. Below we have the ordinary domestic offices and dining-room, while upstair* we have two suites of bedrooms with separate corridors for the male and female assistants respectively, with hot and cold baths for each. A large band of assistants were actively em- ployed in arranging the goods in the various departments to preserve a system and order that is the abiding credit and admiration of large establishments. What about the stock, Mr Evans ? I pre. sume these goods are being arranged preparatorj to an anticipated brisk trade at Cliribtmas asked our man. Yes, responded the interviewed, with more readiness than he bad yet evinced, and increasing in enthusiasm with every sentence. What you see around you are bug- consignments of absolutely new goods- freeb from the best markets The advantage of having a complt-tely new stock to present to my customers fur sale on re-openirg my premises was seen from the outset, and every means was taken to dispose of all my stock prior to the alterations l,eing completed. This has been done, and we start to-day with a "clean obeet,every article being of the newest shade and texture, bet-t quality, and quite Parisian and up-to-date. This ought surely to induce the people of Barry to do, in other words, what Mr Rudyard Kipling sek8 the British public to do with Lis tambourine, with only this difference: I ask with goods that defy COD.petition—"Buy, buy, buy!" and he asks to "Pay, pay, pay,"—and (with a twiiikle) they must pay here, you know, because this is a cash establishment. The force of the logic was irresistible. When do you anticipate being in fully-equipped form?" By Saturday next everything will be in apple-pie order, ready for the thousands to come and buy. Like Buller's brigade, we are now awaiting action I

Principal R. berta, who received a very cordial reception, bui)s, qUtDtly delivered an address, in the course of which he observed that when asked to be pnsent on that occasion he felt it his duty to do so if possible if < nly to express and show his regard and esteem for the h. ad master. (Applause). Mr Jont-s was known to him, as he was known to many present, as a capable and excellent educa- ti nist in every WHY Tue Lrgtj number of i-tuoents, past au.1 present, wished with himself a I. ng period of succeed in the headiimstei ship ot that -chool.

(Hear. lte-r ) In coming Iowti that day in the train from Cardiff he was as ound'd at the evidences that he saw of 'he mat. rial progress of tl at dist, let. Coming for the first time since he left C rd ff, some nine y. i rs ago, to take up tiis work ai Aberystwth, it as nothioM I.'s than a revelation 10 him to see this long line of docks filled with ship- ping from all paits of the world But he was glad that in these nine years, when industry and commerce had inert ased heyoud all description, that dacati, n liad also had a suecess, a growth, almost equallv rematkabltf in this country of Gla- morgan. (Cheers.) It was no small task for education to cope with the gr»wth of papulation, and the requirements of that population in this great country. One of those who had contributed largely to that dev lopmect, v z, Principal Virialuu Jones, was at that moment lyil-g ill, aud he fel: sure that that meeting profoundly sympathised with him in his illness, and each of them felt no small joy and satisfaction at the news which had been reaching them of his slow but, at the same time, speedy recovery of his strength. H* had rendered great service already to Wales, and Wales h-id still further ne, d of his great powers, and hi, gieat enthusiasm in order that they may enter upon their great educational work at the com- menceOleut ot the cei.tuiy that was immediately before them. alir,g on tc educational topic- generally, Frincijal R. ber's expressed the hope that in their new Secondary schools they would be able to avoid the greit danger of making their ducatioa fail of its object through its being unable <0 keep pace with the natural lopment of the n in.ls of the people. They all knew how un- natural secondary instruction had bteu in the past. They kuew how subjects of study had been ei L h, r madequate or unsuitable, or. if not that, how suit- able subjtc s had been unsuitably taught, and how subjects which were absolutely required to he taught, if taught at all, wjth the combinatation cf r luory and practice. Xhe mind of the child should not be crippled through the forcing of it mental activity in the piocess called cramming. New methods were beim? tried, aud when these had had a fri opportunity of showing their effect, they would be jubtified iu io 0r 11 y- ars in looking for the results. Personally, he did not believe in estimating the effect from examination results, but at the same time these must be given a subordinate place in the process of the machinery of education. Proceeding he paid a high regard to the public school system of England, supported the view that pupil teachers should be traiued" in the County Schools, and in conclusion said that Wnles was lo. kii g forward to the realities that weie beyond to-day, and it was with the measure of support given by ht-r p. ople that the education- ists of the country would be able to carry out A hat they had in hand. Whatever differ nc-s existtd hey should unite with the object that the success of Wales was the success of them all (Cheers.) Subsequently a scene from "The Rivals" was performed by Misses Cissie Morns, Hi da Morris, Nellie Roberts, and W. J. Pryce, and after voies ot thanks had been accorded, the interesting pro- cecdings terminated.
SNAP SHOTS. The topic next in impor ance to the war :-the boundaries question. The beautiful pipe organ given by Mr Oliver Jenkins to the Cadoxton Wesleyan Church is to be opened shortly by a recital. Another embezzlement has been squared in the Barry district. The Rev C. H. Shave has been among those hid up through i.h.ess. A petition is going the rounds at Barry to urge upon Mr John Lowdon the necessity of not resign- ing his position as chairman of the School Board. The next meeting of the School Boaid will be the last for Dr O'Donnell, whose resignation will be generally regretted by the ratepayers.

BARRY DEBATING SOCIETY. Mr D. Farr, the genial and much-respected conductor of the Barry Glee Society, is a man of many parts. He has successfully trained the "Boys" to carry off a much-coveted national prize, and on Mon iay evening he read an ex- cellent paper before the Debating Society on Are Theatrical Amusements Detrimental to Society and Morality ?" rbe paper was equal to Mr Farr's reputation: it was a survey of "theatre" opera and music-hall; and whilst admitting that much inferior matter was to be found, on the whole these popular amusements were not detrimental to morality or society. What is required is that the public taste should boycott the inferior and support the higher class of work. There was an interesting debate, nearly all the speakers supporting Mr Farr's view. The following gentlemen also took part: Messrs Biss, Oskam, T. Davies, Williams, T. Thomas, Jenkins, Morgan, T. Lewis, J. Burgess, Dr Irving, Webber, R. Jones, Dart, F. Morris, Thomas, and Mr J. O. Davies, who presided.
