Howells' School, Llandaff. BARRY SCHOLAR'S SUCCESS. A meeting of the Governors of Howells' Glamorgan County Schools for Girls was held at the School, Llandaff, on Tuesday. It was announced that the following were elected to Howells' scholarshipsAnnie J. John, Morel- street; M. O. Clavey, Jewel-street; and Nellie Jones, Woodland-road, all attending Holton- road Girls' School. The above were trained for the examination by Miss Pike of the same school. The scholarships of the three girls who were successful last year from this district have < also been renewed.
THE ADDRESS TO MR JOHN LOWDON. Lord Salisbury was generally congratulated by the French and Japanese Press for retir- ing from office at that moment when his country was in full prosperity and when, in the words of the Gaulois, it seemed to have reached the summit of its proudest aspira- tions and the object of its patient efforts and untiring industry. Some parallel may be drawn at the retirement of Mr John Lowdon from the chairmanship of the Barry School Board. The event took place some months ago, and it was quite in keeping with the order of things that it should not be allowed to pass without some recognition other than the mere formal and official expressions of regret which were made at the time. The educational development of the Barry district is as interesting historically as is the commercial success of the undertakings of the Barry Railway Company, and bearing in mind what that has been, we do not think that we can institute a better comparison. Intimately associated with that development from its inception, entering into its warp and woof in a distinctively supreme sense, is the name of Mr Lowdon. We make no apology, therefore, for again adverting to the significance of the with- drawal of so strong a personality from active participation in the administration of local educational affairs. If, as citizens, we have any discourse of reason, we are bound to recognise our indebtedness to men of the stamp of Mr Lowdon, who, for a period of ten years, devoted himself to the laying of those solid foundations upon which a super- structure has been raised which has elicited admiration from the highest educational authorities of the country. The sentiment of the excellent address which was presented to Mr Lowdon is shared by all the inhabitants of the district, who, while fully recognising and appreciating the co-operation and help of others, are bound at the same time to recognise the preponderat- ing influence and sway of the, man who shirked no responsibility, who believed in and accomplished great things without the aid of self-advertisement, and who, in the matter of the Intermediate School, scornfully declined to allow Barry to become in any way parasitical. With characteristic brevity and clearness, Mr J. Arthur Hughes, the chairman at the presentation meeting, summarised the quali- ties which, in his estimation, had placed Mr Lowdon in such a high position of influence and power. They were: disinterestedness, a great capacity for business, and a fine enthusiasm tempered by the calm, calculat- ing disposition of North Countrymen. Wren's best monument was St Paul's Cathe- dral itself, and, as it is truly remarked in the Address, the numerous schools themselves constitute Mr Lowdon's best memorial and legacy to the town. There is no greater satisfaction for anyone, as Major-General Lee remarked, than the realisation of having done one's best, and to know it was appreciated. Mr Lowdon has done that in and out of season for ten years, and he has now the great happiness of knowing that the results have been commen- surate with his efforts. Dr Strong, the American theologian, ob- serves that there is a movement of the glaciers in the Alps by which the snow which fell years ago upon the summit of Mont Blanc or the Jungfrau comes down at last in the shape of solid ice in the valleys far below, and by its melting furnishes the refreshing draught to the tired labourer in the meadows as he throws himself upon the earth for his noonday meal. So the work of Mr Lowdon and of those who have worked as kindred spirits with him benefits the poorest school child in the district, and the man in the street is enriched unconsciously by the power of a thinker whom he does not know.
ALLEGED ATTEMPTED SUICIDE. BARRY WOMAN TIRED OF LIFE. Mary Bowden, of 13, Merthyr-street, Barry Dock, on Wednesday went into the chemist's shop of Mr Hicks, in Holton-road, and pur- chased 3d worth of carbolic acid for the purpose of destroying her life. After receiving it she told the assistant that she intended to drink it, and forthwith took the cork and had the bottle half-way to her lips when she was prevented by the assistant from accomplishing her purpose. To Inspector Morris, who afterwards arrested her, she said that she bad children at Newport, her husband was in hospital at Marseilles, and she was tired of life, and intended to kill herself t, ay either by poisoning or drowning. 011 Thursday she was brought up before the local magistrates and remanded in custody for a week.
TO THIRSTY SOULS. The most wholesome of all summer drinks is Lemonade. Two gallons can be made to perfection from a 4id bottle of "Eiffel Tower Lemouade." The finest Messina Lemons are used in its manu- facture. Dr A. B. Griffiths, the famous food analyst, says, "It is impositole to produce Lemon- ade ot a higher standard of excellence." A 4id Bottle makes two gallons. Also ute EIFFEL TOWER LeMON JELLIES.

SNAP SHOTS. There is fno truth m the rumour that Dr. Livingstone is dea 1. Birry Company of Artillery Volunteers joined the Penarth Company at Church parade on Sunday last. Schedules for the Vale of Glamorgan Agri- cultural Show are now ready, and may be obtained from the secretary, Mr T. J.Yorwertb, Cowbridge. Owing to ihe inclement wenther on Saturday the quoit match Barry v Ton second teams, could not be played in connection with the South Wales and Monmouthshire League. The camp of the 2nd Glamorgan Artillery Volunteers, which was fixed for August 3rd and 10th dot Lavernock, has been abandoned owing to the prevalence of small-pox in the South Wales district. The prospectus of the Glamorgan Public House Trust will be issued to the public on Tuesday next. The minimum subscription of £ 6,000 has been guaranteed by the directors and their friends. Barry is represented at the Assizes at the bar, among the solicitors, in the police force, in the witness box, in the press box, in the jury box, and, uufortunately, in the prisoners' lock. A marriage has been arranged and will shortly take place between Mr R. W. Hall, Veternary Surgeon, Tynewydd-road, Barry Dock, and Miss I. Whitehouse, Birmingham. At the local police-court to-day the license of the Royal Hotel, Cadoxton-Barry, was temporarily transfered to Mr H. B. Clements, formerly of the Railway Hotel, Penartb, from Mr F. S. T. Brooks. A course of practical cookery lectures will be given by Miss L. £ Silvester, M.C.A., principal of the Leamington school of cookery, to be held in the national schoolroom, Dinas Powis, from Tuesday, August 5th, until Friday, August 8th. At the demonstrations joints and parti; .be cooked each day free of coot,. Admission Free to all lectures. Notice has been given that at the expiration of three months the names of the Barry Dock Workmen's Cottage Co., Ltd., and the Cadox- ton R.A.O.B. Institute, Ltd., will be struck off the register of companies unless cause is shown to the contrary. The third annual sports of the Cardiff United (Catholic) Schools took place at the Scphia Gardens, on Saturday, Dr P. J. O'Donnell being one of the judges. J. Driscoll, St. Helen's, son of Mr Driscoll, George-street, won first prize in the obstacle race. The Cardiff Town clerk has communicated to Mi Fisher, secretary of the Coal Trimmers' Union, the desirability of urging upon the Local Goverriment Board for further powers to deal more effectively with eases of small-pox on board vessel than the law at present permits. The Sunday School Anniversary of the Barry Dock Forward Movement Hall will take place next Sunday, and on the following Tuesday, August 5th, the annual treat will be given to the Sunday School scholars at Brynhill Farm, tickets for which may be obtained from the secretary. There is a jingle of adjectives in the following sentence sent from Barry to the journal of the Co-operative Society :—" We are striving to keep the people's food out of the merciless grasp of the profit-hunting speculator." This is nothing short of murder, for to withhold food even from the "merciless profit-hunting specu- lator," is criminal. Mr E. W. Waite, the hon. sec. of the Children's Coronation Treat Committee, would be thankful if those schools who have not so far sent in their returns will at once do so, in order to facilitate matters in connection with the treat. If any schools have not yet been com- municated with, Mr Waite will gladly do so upon receiving intimation tu that effect. The Newport shipwrights' dispute was settled on Saturday, to the mutual satisfaction of both masters aud men, this being brought about by the intervention of Mr D. C. Cummings, general secretary, and Mr J. H. Jose (Barry), district delegate of the Boilermakers' Society, to whom, a daily pliper says, the thanks of both parties, as well as everyone interested in the trade of Newport, is due." The s.s. Hostiliue, which was recently at Barry undergoing repairs by Mr C. H. Bailey, of the Tyne Engine Works, will be the first of a new line of steamers, belonging to Houston and Co., Liverpool, that will run from British ports to South Africa, in competition with the Con- ference lines. She left Middlesborough ou Thursday with 3,300 tons of manufactured iron and steel. A story is told by Mr Carnegie, the benefac- tor of Barry, of himself, that he once attended a coloured service and placed a 50-dollar note on the plate. The old darkey who passed the plate looked at the note carefully, and then marohed down to the pulpit and called the minister to one side. He whispered to him excitedly, pointing now at the note and then at me. The minister took the note and addressed the congregation as follows Bre'ren, de Lawd habbeen mighty good to us dis day. We hab one dollah and twenty-fo cents, in the c'lection, an' if dat fifty dollah bill wha' dat ole man with de grey beard an' ha's put in de plate am a good bill, we will hab fifty-one dollabs au' twenty-fo' cents. Bre'ren, let us dank the Lawd ani ask Him dat it may be a good bill."

Cowan, Ltd., London, of JE87 10s for an 18-inch station governor, erected complete, was accepted, three tenders being received. MISXING ACCESSORIES. Owing to large accounts being presented to the committee for payment each month for supplying cooking stove fittings, Councillor Milward proposed, and Councillor James Jones seconded, that the storekeeper at the Gas Works take a note of the condition of the gas and cooking stoves and fittings when sent out, and that they be checked when returned. It was also decided to add in all future agree- ments that tenants would be responsible for any fittings missing. PROVISIONAL ORDER. A letter was read from the Local Government Board stating that the application for the Pro- visional Order bad gone through, and had been allowed. The only thing now needed is to make this Order retrospective. WATER ANALYSIS. The water analysis was submitted, and showed that the water was at present in a healthy condition. The samples sent were found to be better than those of any previous years.
PUBLIC WORKS. Mr J. H. Jose presided over a meeting of the Public Works Committee held on Tuesday afternoon. There were also present Mr J. A. Manaton, and Dr O'Donnell. RECREATION GROUND. It was decided to recommend to the Council to pay the money to parties interested in the land which has been required for the new re- creation grounds, and take same over forthwith. TREES ATTENDANT. Several applications were rooeived for the post of looking after and attending to the trees in the district. Mr George Mills, 1, Ivor- street, Barry Island, was selected for the post. STREET IMPROVEMENTS. It was resolved to proceed with the work of completing the extension of Lombard-street and Woodland road, Crosaway street to Bverard-street, and Newton-street to Ty- newydd-road.—Mr Manaton thought it was a disgrace to that committee that the continuation of Tynewydd-road should have been left in its present condition so long. He moved that the whole of the work be done the' curbing, channelling, and paving.—This was agreed to. ACCIDENT TO A CRILIt In reference to the recent fall of a little Cadoxton girl down a quarry, it was reported that the same child had on several occasions been warned not to play about the place.—The committee decided to write to the owner of the land asking him to put up a fence there. CYCLE TRACK. Mr Pardoe placed before the committee plans and a report of his reeent visit to Carmarthen to inspect the cycle track at that place.—This matter was deferred until the next meeting: BOATMEN'S REQUEST. An appeal was read from the boatmen of Barry Island asking the Council to make some convenient arrangement for getting in and out of the boat, as the present system was unsuit- able. The committee could do nothing in the matter at present. APPLICATION. An application was read from the Barry Athletic Club asking for the use of a field at the Buttrillg for football purposes. It was pointed out that an advertisement would appear in the BARRY HERALD re the letting out of the ground, and all applications would be consi- dered at that time. ELECTRIC SUPPLY.

OTHERWISE THE PONTLOTTYN PRINCE SENTENCED TO FIVE YEARS' IMPRISONMENT. At the Glamorgan Assizes at Cardiff on Tuesday (before Justice Ridley) John Prince, the Pontlottyn legatee, was brought up to plead. His appearance in the dock excited considerable interest in a crowded eourt. He seemed composed and uttered his pleas in a loud, emphatic voice. To the charge of bigamy in marrying Mary Susannah Edwards, the daughter of the landlord at Pontlottyn, he pleaded guilty, but his replies to the charges of forgery and obtaining two separate sums of S20 and JE40 from Mrs Edwards were pleas of not guilty. Mr St John Francis Williams ap- pears for the prosecution, and Mr Arthur Lewis for the defence. On Wednesday, when prisoner was brought up for trial, he pleaded guilty, and was sen- tenced to five years imprisonment.
A TRAIL OF DUST. The great dust ntorm of Murcii, 1901, has been the subject of an elaborate report by Hell- wave and Meiriardus, of Berlin. Dust fell in southern Algeria on Maroli 8th to 10th; in Italy and Bioily on the 10th; over the eastern Alps on the night of the 10th and 11th; in Central Germany on the forenoon of the 11th; in North-western Germany on the afternoon and evening of the 11th and in southern Den- mark on the night of the 11th and 12th, The storm, therefore, passed through 25 degrees of latitude. The microscope shows the material to be desert sand, which must have oome from southern Algeria, and seems to have been carried by an upper air current that was tmveiling northward at the time at the rate of about4B miles an hour.
PEAT CLOTHING. Considerable progess seems to have been made in the use of peat wool. The material has been undergoing trial by Dusseldorf manu- facturers, who prepare it by isolating the vege- tables fibres and then treating them with acids and alkalies, the result being a peat wool con- sisting of nearly pure cellulose. This soft, elastie product may be spun like sheep's wool. Mixed with cotton or Hheep's wool, it may be made into various t extures, and, while it seems to have been most successful for felt hats, it has given more or lens satisfactory results for dress goods, carpets, &c., which may be bleached or <)yc<). Peat wadding Is specially valuable for surgical dressings.
MAN, THE MACHINB. That the humall body is a better and more efficient machine lor the production of energy than any engine yet devised by man is the striking conclusion reached hy an investigation in which experts have recently been engaged, They have found that 111:111 will yield more power for a given .-iiiiomii <>: tuel than the best steam or oil engine..Ml '< mm litis point of view is superior to any ni< ■ *hjtnical contrivance constructed up to d:s$,e. Whereas the moat eco- nomies! steam engine delve: III actual horse- power only about 18 per .een;. oi the total heat value of the fuel supplied, a hint class athlete produces 86 per eeui., or nearly three times as much.
WILLOW TREES FOR EMBANKMENTS. It has been found by recent experiments that the value of willows is very great in holding together the banks of streams. They have a natural affinity for Stream banks, their shade is never intense, and their root systems are deep in the soil, whereby they form dense masses at the water's edge, protecting the soil from washing away, and retaining the embank- ments. Another advantage possessed by willows is the rapidity of their growtty, Among the best speoies for planting are the white willow and some of its varieties.
ARTIFICIAL THUNDER AND LIGHTNING. The largest induction coil, which produces the longest spark for service in wireless tele- graphy, is said to be the one which was recently made foriumilitig messages between the coasts of Japan and Korea. It can produce a minia- ture streak of lightning 45 inches in length, sapable of killing any uuuibe cf persons who might get in its way, and when in operation gives out a noise like that of thuuder. The entire apparatus weighs about two thousand pounds.
8HEEP WITH NATURAL JUB. TRUMPETS. The spiral hom of a wild sheep, when sc placed that the ear is in the axis of the ooil. makes the ticking of a watch more audible in one particular direction. Since the ear of sheep is surrounded by the horn, it is inferred that the latter acts as an ear-trumpet, not improving the hearing for distant sounds, but disclosing the direction of a sound. This would be useful in enabling the sheep to ascertain the exact points from which sounds come when there is a asistor fog covering its feeding-grounds.
