LATE CORKESPoNDENCE FURNISHING COMMITTEE OF THE HANNAH STREE r SCHOOL. TO THE EDITOR UF THE BAKKY HERALD." Sip.Frutn the accounts of the meeting of the Barry School Board held on the 7th inst, it is clear that the appoinrn.ent of the above Committee took place at some distant and uncertain date, and that the Committee were not empowered to spend monpy, the Board having the selection ef goods." Nf\ d. ubt information could have been given the Be rd as to tht date of the appointment of the Committee. To my knowledge ib was in existence in October, 1898, if not before, because in that month, whether they were empowered to do so or cot, they ordered desks from Glasgow nrm and had them delivered at the Intermediate School. The Deputy Clerk of the School Board lent me a paper to sign M receiver of the goods, whieh v..s headed .C HaIlDah-atr.cet School Account." Or coolie, no information was ever vouchsafed to me as te'the terms of the arrar> jemenr made between Mr Lowdon as Chairman of the Furnishing Com- mittem-of Hannah-srreet School and Mr Lowdon as Chairman of the Intermediate School Manages. Evidently Dr O'Donnell, though a member of the School Board and of the Intermediate Board, does not know. Still the fact remains that if the Committee were not empowered to spend money," they exceeded their powers fifteen months ago. 1 cannot let this opportunity pass without a word on the suhj«ct of the Chairmanship of the Board. The educational policy that has been pursaed by the domin-nt p:.rty in the past has had the fifcrce light of publicity thrown upon it, and stanch condemned. The young people who are being trained to fulfil the duties of citizenship in the near future naturally watch the proceedings of the educational bodies and it ought to be possible for the conscientious teacher to point to them as modeLe of what public bodies should he. I trust. therefore, that the members will rise to the occaafen and will choose in the place of Mr Lowdon a mari,ho will see that justice, righteousness, and troth characterise the actions of the educational authorities of the town, and thus raise the tone of its public life. Yours faithfully, 17, St. Alban's-road, H. R. NORRIS. 'Harlesden, N.W. INCOME-TAX REPAYMENTS. TOOTHS EDITOR OF THE "BARRY HERALD." Sir,—As most of your readers who are engaged in business are now ascertaining the amount of their profits for the year 1899, will you allow us to remind them that, if such profits show a diminution. tk-y may be entitled to the re-payment of a con- siderable portion of the Income-tax paid in respect' of the fjikme. "Many submit to overcharges, having failed < n previous occasions to get their asg. sam, nts reduced In most cases the reason why they have failed 'úJ that they have not furnished proper accouifhi, while many have neglecttd to keep any accounts of thetr busin, as transactions. If proper accounts be kept, or even if a proper cash acoount be presented (which is very simple by using the Tax-p^ysfs' Cash Book,") hete is but little difii- eul y in establishing a claim. Thod.,ands of people pay taxes for which they are net, liable, more paiticulnrly those whose incomes are derived from property and investments where tax is deducted before being paid to the recipients, or when dividends are paid "fiee of Ji come Tax." Abatements are DOW allowed in cases hrre the total income does not exceed £700, as fo lows :—Incomes of 9160 exempt: 9400, abate- meat €160; 500. abatement E150 £ 600, abate- ment 120; 9766, abatement £70. Where the income of the current financial year has all been leceived, claims* can, in many cases, now be made for four years, and the sum re-payable might, in the case of private incomes alone, exceed 142, to say nothing of tax allowed in respect ef life insurance premianis, even when the income exceeds £700.. We shall be glad to advise any of your reader*, gratuitously, whether they can make a claim for re-payment, if they send us full particu- lars ot. their incomes and a stamped addressed envelope.—Yours faithfully, THE INCOM E-TAX ADJUSTMENT AGENCY 12, and 13, Poultry, London, E.C.

DISTRICT COUNCIL ELECTIONS. CLOSE CONTESTS EXPECTED NEXT .J APRIL. A RUSH FOR THE SEAT IN THE WEST WARD. Notwithstanding the fact that the Barry Urban District Council election is three months off, interest has already begun to be excited in the contests. It it hoped, and, indeed, gener- ally believed, that the decision of the County Council respecting the extension. of the boun- daries and the consequent increase of member- ship will be forthcoming before that time. Councillor Paterson's seat in the West Ward will be assailed by Mr Sam Griffiths and Mr Pursall, while it is not yet definitely known whether Mr Councillor John Thomas will seek re-election for the North Ward, where Dr. O'Donnell has intimated his intention of be- coming a candidate. Should Dr O'Donnell be in the field, the compromised form of the Trades Council must necessarily assist him very greatly, and wiU probably secure his return to the Council, where, in sanitary matters, he has rendered valuable service to the town, since the formation of the old Barry and Cadoxton Local Board. Councillor Jose, J.P, will, as far as at present seems, have a clean course in the South Ward. Even there, how- ever, tKepositioii is not too secure from opposi- tion'ofcan unjustifiable character from one of the many aspiring Tories, who have hitherto appeared in past fights, but from time to time meeting defeat. The East Ward so far is an unknown quantity. Rumours are ripe pointing to a plethora of candidates. Everything, indeed, points to our having a lively time next April.

BRISTOL EAST v. SOUTH WALES LEAGUE. A DRAWN GAME. At the Cardiff Athletic Ground on Christmas morning, before 2,000 spectators in threatening weather. There were several alterations in the Lfague team, substitutes having to be found for Jones (Aberdnre), Littlehales (JRogerstone), Langley find Wright (ftbbw Vale), Jones (Rogerstone), and Williams (Porth). The vacancies were filled by Green (Barry), Parry (Porth), Richards (Cardiff Mackintosh), Thomp- son and Mitchell (Barry), and liiden (Cardiff Mackintosh). The Bristol team was as adver- tised. Mr Woodfield, Barry, refereed. Luther started for Bristol, the ball being sent to touch just beyond the quarter-line. Riden received from the throw in, and, out-pacing several opponents, sent in the first shot. From the kick-out the Welshmen attacked some smart forward play by Mitchell, King, and Riden, resulting in the latter trying with a long shot. Davies, however, cleared, and play was taken to the centre. From here the Welsh forwards got away, and Mitchell, given a high pass when close in, headed over the b»r. The Bristol forwards then for the first time visited Welsh quarters, but were quickly driven back by Picken, who kicke..1 down the field to Mitchell, who passed neatly to Riden. The latter shot for goxl, but Davies again saved. Up to now the League had done most of the attacking, button having little or nothing to do. Smart play by Cook, the visitors' centre half, then took play into the home quarters, and some capital patsing almost anded in a score. Fol- lowing this was some even play, and then King was again given a chance to show his shooting capabilities. This time he only had tho goal- keeper to evade, bat nevertheless shot wide. From the kick out the Welsh forwards broke away brilliantly, and after some fine passing MitcheU beat Davies with a splendid shot. fsoon after the re-start King made up for all his blunders by scoring a capital score from close in. Mitchell scored a third goal. Just before half-time the visitors were unfortunate in not scoring, the ball striking under the bur. They appealed for a goal, but without success. Half-time score: League, 3 goals; Bristol, nil. —King restarted for Barry, and play settled down in the centre, and for some time little of note occurred. The visiting forwards then played up considerably, and McKay, after tricking several men, beat button with a sting- ing low shot. Cook, who had up to now been playing a rattling good game, then dribbled to within close rang^ and scored goal number two. Resuming, the visitors rtgain went off, and some splendid passing was witnessed, Co \k and Luther being most conspicuous. About ten minutes before time Rudge received a pass on the right wing and scored with a beautiful shot. No further ecorirg took place, and the game ended in a draw of three goals each. # The match between the Barry Unionists and Pontardawe on Boxing Day attracted a large crowd to the Jubilee Field, Barry. In tbe previous matches this season between these teams, Barry have proved easy winners, but this time they completely outran their opponents, who were defeated by s:x goals to nil. » On Wednesday the Cadoxton United met the Barry Wednesdays at Cadoxton, and gave the \isitors a beating to the tuue of two goals to nil. Cannock and Burbidge scored.

CHRISTMASTIDE AT BARBY. Christmastide in the Barry district has passed off much as in former years, there being not many of those attractions which are likely to take one from the pleasant fireside, witk the l exception of the eisteddfod at Barry, which is becoming an important annual affair. The weather on Christmas Day was beautiful, though unseasonable, and during the week it bad gone through all the forms of an extensive thaw, with all the disagreeable accompaniments of mud-a very sticky quality of which one meets with in this district. The attractions for the youngisters, in the form of concerts and tea parties were, as usual, many and well patron- ised. Towards evening Barry, of coarse, almost emptied itself into Cardiff, and especially on Boxing night, when there was not standing room to be obtained before the coinmencemont of any of the shows in the district, or after. All the junior teams, of course, played an extra special football match ON one of the two days, and a match between naea dressed up as fewalel-we do not say dressed like foicales, as I it would lie no coraplimcut whatever to the sex —and a usual team, was played on Crusoe's Island. Below will be found reports of the principal events in the district:— EISTEDDFOD AT BARRY. The third annual eisteddfod for the benefit of the funds of the English Presbytferian Church, Barry, was again very successful, the attend- ance being large, and the competitions very kpen and interesting.

BIBLE CHRISTIAN CHAPEL. On Boxing Day the members of the Bible Ohristiaa Chapel, Court road, Barry Dock, held a very enjoyable and, under all aspects, very successful Christmas tree and social gathering. The Rev D. Lee Cann, paster, presided over the proceedings, which were informal, and Mrs Lee Cann, Mrs J. Cruise, Mrs and Miss West- lake rendered valuable services towards supply- ing tke wants of the members, young and old. The chapel was prettily decorated with flags, and the gathering was one of the most pleasant which has been held in the chapel for some time. PRESBYTERIAN SUNDAY SCHOOL, BARRY DOCK. An enjoyable tea and entertainment was held on Christmas Day in the building opposite the Police Station, Barry Dock, in connection with the Presbyterian Sunday School, Barry Dock. The Sunday School is a branch of the Presbyteriau Church, Barry. A large number of children attended, and the catering was all that could be desired. The evening's enter taiumeat proved edifying and interesting. Mr Dupene presided over the proceedings, and he was assisted by Councillor Evan Jones, Mr Williams, stationmaster at Barry Dock, to- gether with several ladies. ENGLISH BAPTIST CHAPBL. A treat on a very large scale was given in the lecture-room at the English Baptist Chapel on Wednesday afternoon last, by which about 460 of the poorest children of the district benefited. The tea was given under the auspices of the local branch of the Christian Endeavour Society, and was under the immediate superin- tendence of the president, Mr J. 8kinner, assisted by a sub-committee of 18. About S9 has been collected from the public to assist towards the defrayal of the expenses. It was with difficulty that the large number of children were satisfactorily catered for, but, thanks to the n-auagement, each child went away with enough, and none were left un- fed. In the eveuing a lantern lecture KWas given, interspersed with solo* and redi- tions. Mr Jameq, stationmaster at Cadoxton, gave the lecture. The pastor of the chapel, Rev T. Pandy John, thanks the public who have subscribed, and hopes to publish a balance sheet by our next issue. A tea and concert was held in connection with the Sunday School of the same church on Christmas Day. Both were given in aid of the chapel funds. The concert in the eTening was a most successful affair, the artistes taking part being Miss Bessie Phillips, Cz; ris.then, Madame Jones, Newport, Mr Todd Jones, TreherDert, and Mr Dan Jones, Cardiff. Miss P. J. Williams, R.A.M., presided at the piano. EISTEDDFOD AT LLANCARFAN. A most successful competitive meeting was held en Xmas Day at the Bonvilston Reading Room, Llanoarfan, the object being the benefit of the annual eisteddfod fund. The gathering was a most successful one, the attendance all that eould be wished, and the prizes keenlv contested. Mr T. Price, Llanbethery, made an able president, and Mr D. Griffiths, Bonvilston, was hon. secretary to a strocg committee. Mr Evan Griffiths, Bonvilstone, was treasurer. The adjudications in needlework were by Mrs L. G. Williams, Bonvilstone; and Mr R.

THEATRC ROTAL.-At this season of the year all places of amusement expect a continual "slump" in crowdrid houses, and const-queutly the managers do their utmost to place before their public that class of entertainment which experience has shown them to be most appreciated by thtir patrons. A good drama is always appreciated, and will be, so long as good nature and sympathy remain with us and the ehoice of the piece which is called the Life we live," as the bill ..f far for the working population ef Barry this week is a good one. The play represents a period when the working man was not so powerful as his descendant of to-day, and when, it. must be confessed, he had less sense. THe scene is principally among the mills in Man- chester, and the millers are chiefly the actors. There are some stirring representations which the acting makes real, though that is not so well assisted by the setting and shifting as it ought to be. There is one character in the piece which is thoroughly representative of a very common hum- bug ef to-day, namely, Jonas Redwood, who talks of the nobility of work and scurilists everything and everybody else. But his danger does not lie there. lie inaitea men to break laws, to do things by brute force, which will be always effectual in an anarchie country. Dick Redwood (Mr Charles A. Millwarol) makes an admirable hero, and has an exeiting time before the final scene. He is the soldier lover ef May Grove, an heiress (Miss Helen MeCulloeli), who goes through a gteac deal to prove that love can never die-and she does it. Phil Burchill (Mr F. W. Freeman) is nephew to the millowner and a bad man, who, unlike his uncle, is irrealtimabla. T rry UrDowd (Mr Phil Barraud), Polly Welder (Miss Nina Engel), and Nicodemus Noodle (Mr Harry Fenton) supply the cemic element. There is & very streng caste, and the opportunity should not be misat-d of witnessing so fine a reflex of the life we live.—-Next week ULas Adrift Hill and Mr Robert Ayrton's powerful Loudon Company, will appear at the Royal speci- ally with their formost drama, Saved from the Sea." The company eomes direct from the Princess Theatre, London, and should prove an immense attraction'. BARRY DOCK. MBTHODIST Faza Caultea, BOTTRILLS-ROAD.— Services next Sunday, n a.n:. and 6.30 p.m. Preachers, Rev J. J. Davies (morning), Mr W. G. He well (sveniag). ON FRIDAY EVSNIG LAST the Town's Fund Committee of the District Council met and decided to grant 12s a week to two new cases. UNIFORMS FOR PUBLIC SERVANTS.—At a special meeting of the Health Committee of the Barry Distriot Council, held an Friday morning, the tender of B. ani aud Co., Burton-on-Trent, was accepted for the uniformil for the Council's officials. The amount was 9141. Councillors Paterson and Mergau were the members present. The tender of Bailey and Co., Lendon, was also accepted for the fire escape. VOLUNTARY HOSPIT.&L.-Threo fresh patients have been admitted and three sent out oonvalescent since our last issue, leaving 14 in. One hundred and sixty-six poor sufferers have been treated in this hospital this year. More mon> y is much needed to pay the Christmas bills. Will all who oan eend a mite J If every one in tke distriot would deprive themselves one luxury for one day in order tr. send a trifle to help, the treasury would soon be full. BARRY. CONGREGATIONAL CHCRCH.—The services of this churoh are now being held each Sunday at 11 a.m. and «.30 p.m. at the Romilly Hall, Barry. The pulpit next Sunday will be occupied, both morning and evening, by the paster, Rev C. H. Shave. GARDSNKRS AND ALLOTMSNT-HOLDSXS are re- commended to apply for my new Seed Catalogue fer lSlg. Speciality in Seeds always fresh. Cata- logues free—W. R. HOPKINS, Pharmaceutical Chemist, II, High-streak, Barry. LLANCARFAN. TRBAT AND ENTSRTAINMENT.— The Sunday School iu connection with the Llancarfan Baptist Church received their anaual treat, consisting of tea, akil, &c., on Chriitmas Day, when a large number of scholars and friends assembled in orde- to partake of the good things which had been so liberally provided. The following lidies were most assiduous in their attendance on the little ones Mrs Edwards, Mrs Mazey, Mrs Hopkins, Mrs Ed Griffiths, Mrs Watts, Mrs John, Abernant; Mrs W. Price, Mrs Davies, St Mary Church road Mrs Howells, Llancadle Miss J. Price Griffiths, and Miss Edith Cooke. The treat being over, an entertainment was given by the Sunday Schaol, which consisted of choruses, duetts, songs, and recitations, all of which were goae through ver) creditably. The prize for an impromptu speech (subject, The Present War ") was won by Mr D. G. John, Llancarfan and Mr J. Ll. Davies took the prize for an unpunctuated piece of reading. The Rev T. P. Lloyd, the genial and respected pastor of the church, ably presided, and also acteri as adjudicator in the competitive item". The choir was under the baton ef Mr Rees Thomas and Miss J. P. Griffiths and Miss E. L. Davies acted as aoeompanists.

There WAS an unmuzzled dog in Wo,-dlani-r.,ad the other day. But the residents ne..d not fear, as the police hay, too muoh respect for their boots to penetrate into that district. Mr J. Lloyd, draper, Barry, was present at the funeral obsequies of Mr Thomas Abraham, son of Mr Wm Abraham, M.P., at Treorchy Cemetery, on Wednesday afternoon. The greatest sympathy is shown towards Mabon and Mrs Abraham iD their bereavement. In reply to a lady at Newhaven asking for a definition of the term absent-minded beggar," the author of the piece bearing that title, says :-In answer to your letter the term" abseDt-mindtd beggar is one used by private soldiers themselves when they have forgotten any small duty, and beggar is a general term of endearment. Literally, a polico-ceurt is a clean place but, no doubt, a parent, who was summoned before the Bye-laws Committee of the School Board for the irregular attendance at school ef his child, when he referred to the fact that he did not like to be dragged amongst the filth of a police-court, merely meant the remark to be taken figuratively. An aged, portly member of the Barry Trades Council has sworn by all the gods and little fishes in the new dock—he is an angler, but has never caught anything—that he will form one of the glorious band who will go and down" the barbed. wire fences, which obstruct the way of the three- mile limit traveller, not far from the Porth kerry footpaths. In a local smithy, where a number of men are employed, the news of General Buller's admitted defeat was read out early on Saturday morning, when three ringing cheers were given for the Boers. Such disloyality deserves the greatest censure. It is to be hoped, for the sake of the homes of these blacksmiths, that the news of British victories that are to come will cause them to be silent in future. Probably the reason the music was so captivating was the fact that the Clerk to the Council had only that morning applied to the magistrates to suppress the sound. The Committee felt like dancing before they rose to go to their respective eots. Seriously, however, the music is much superior to that we have ever heard proceeding from a barrel organ. It was such as charmed Venus on the memorable occasion when she first made love to Adonis. We notice that Mr Allen Pearce, the celebrated Truss and Limb Maker, &c. (author of Nature's own Cure of Rapture,") Charles-street, Cardiff, has bought the Truss and Limb Works of the late Mr Saunders, which has been established 60 years at 35 and 36, Lower Arcade, Bristol. It is Mr Pearce's intention, with the aid of Mr Edwin and Mr Albert Pearce, to refit and make this at Bristol and his place at Charles-street, Cardiff, up-to-date in every way. General sympathy is expressed on all hands towards Mr B. G. Davies, solicitor, whose re- speeted father-Aldermaa David Davies, Neath— last week passed away at the ripe old age of 84 years. Alderman Davies has been Mayor of Neath, and lived to see oae of his sons—Dr Davies—rise to the same dignity. A staunch pillar of the Welsh Methodist cause at Neath, Alderman David Davies was a sound Liberal in politics, always took a keen interest in the affairs of the town, and by his ability and care built up for himaelf a for. tuue before lie retired many years ago from the brick- making trade. The Chairman expressed the opinion, at the last meeting of the District Counoil Finance Committee respecting officials' uniform, that each official should wear a uniform, at least a hat, so that they should be recognisable by the public, their em- ployers. Their overcoats were not recognisable, and he thought that some distinguishing mark should be attached thereto. Mr Jose thought that the collectors—all collectors, should be so dis. tinguished. In Japan all tradesmen and others wear the name of their calling on their back, and the ratepayers at least, have a right to know and admire their public servants, who are not only the best paid elass in the oomnaunity, but also work the hardest. No! on Yms ?—It is not pleasant to feel despon- dent and low-spirited, nor to feel bilious and have painia in the back. Is there a way to move this unpleasant feeling? YES, there is; experience teaches that OWBN'S CERTAIN PILLS will totally remove abovtl complaints surely and effectaally. Have you tried them ?—Depot: Own. Chemist, Cftdexton.

BARRY FUND FOR RESERVISTS' FAMILIES. TO THE RD rOB OF THE KAKRT ZtBALD." BIR,-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'le land is, I am sure, to be found in BaTry, and as Chairman of the Barry Urban District Council, I shall be very pleased to receive any subscriptions which the inbabitante 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 in, 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 ■ 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.
