The flnmes were so fierce that the crew got out the boat and ma ie for land. One man disembarked at Wooda Bay and walked to Ilfra- combe; the other two arrived there by the boat. At Ilfracombe they were taken charge of by the agent to the Shipwrecked Mariners' Society, and sent to their homes. The fire raged until the yacht was burnt to the water's edge, when she sank.
A BARRY RENT DISTRAINT. At the local County Court on Tuesday (before Judge Owen) a case of alleged illegal distraint was heard, in which a foreigner named Von Fug sued Edward Hughes, his former landlord, and R. Briuson, a bailiff, for jEoO damages. Mr Cadle, solicitor, appeared for the plaintiff, and M r Lewis Morgan represented the defendants. Plaintiff said that he was approached by the defendant Hughes, and became the tenant for a boarding-house. He obtained the licence, and agreed to pay 15s a week rent. At first be all jged a rent book was given him showing this amount, an,i subsequently Mr Hughes gave him another rent book showing 25s a week as the riMt, statii g as his reason for t'lis ti at he was trying to g-t a mortgage on his prem ises. It WHS a 17-rooined In.use with 10 b' ds. His Hon-jur: All f,)r 15s a wet-k! Mr Lewis Morgan And the landlord to pay rates and taxes. Questioned by Mr Lewis Morgan, plaintiff denied that the los a week only referred to the time when he got a licence. According to the ngr ement he was not to pay any rent until the 11 cost of the furniture had been defrayed. There was no rent to be paid until he was in "full swing." Jndge Owen What an accommodating land- lord Defendant was called, and said be agreed to let the house at 15s a week until the licence was granted, and 25s afterwards. As to the beds, he went security for the plaintiff to a local tradesman. There was a counter-claim [for £ 42 Is lid rent, goods sold, and money lent. Cross-examined It was correct that he was trying to get a mortgage on the premises. The house was rated at £ 20. E. Brinson, the other defendant, who levied the distress, said fair prices were realised at the Sale. His Honour said of all the extraordinary st- ries told him of landlord and tenant this was the most extraordinary. Such an agreement as that suggested by plaintiff was preposterous. The defendant's story was reasonable, however, a-id he was fully justified in all he did.- Judgment was given for both defendants in the action and also on the counterclaim, JE22 15s and £10 in addition.

CARDFIF CAB MYSTEiiY. DRINKS, CIGARS, AND CIGARETTES." ROBBERY WITH VIOLENCE. At the Glamorganshire Assizes on Monday, before Mr Justice Ridley, Harry Bennett, a well-known Cardiff cabman, and Hose Penny, an unfortunate, were charged with robbing with violence Orlick Domenico, seaman, at Dinas Powis, on July 26. Mr Arthur Lewis (instructed by Mr Lloyd) prosecuted, and Mr St John Francis Williams defended Bennett and Mr Morgan Morgan the female (upon the instructions of Messrs Lloyd Meyrick and Davies). In opening the case Mr Arthur Lewis said prosecutor was a seaman of Austrian nationa- lity. He had been "paid (Iff," and on the evening of the 25th met the female in Bute- street. He entered into a conversation with ber, and took her to a public-house for a drink. They then applied at two houses for admission, and failed to be accommodated. Later, about half-past twelve or one o'clock in the morning, they were together in St Mary- street, when Bennett came along driving his cab. He started a conversation, in which he suggested that, as all the places were shut up, he (Domenico) and the woman had better take his cab and go for a drive into the country. The seaman and the woman entered the cab and drove in the direction of Barry. About four o'clock, just at daybreak, they stopped at a public-house called the Swan, at Eastbrook, where prosecutor paid for drinks, cigars, and cigarettes, and changed a sovereign in doing so. They stopped there some time, and then drove off in the direction cf Cardiff, Bennett driving. as before. The cab had gone some distance, when Bennett got down and asked prisoner to pay his fare, the arrangement having been that he should pay 5s for the vehicle. Prosecutor replied that he would pay it on reaching Car- diff. Thereupon Bennett, seized hold of prose- cutor in the cab, and dragged him to the side of the road and knocked him down. A struggle ensued, in the course of which prosecutor's money was taken from him. This would be corroborated by a Mrs Organ, living on the Dinas Powis road. She was up early preparing breakfast for her husband, who was about to go to work, and saw a cab in the road and the struggle that took place between Bennett and the prosecutor- the latter on the ground, and the former on the top of him rifling bis pockets. This witness further saw the female prisoner search the prosecutor's pockets and pay particular attention to the pocket at the back of the trousers, and subsequently that pocket was found to have been ripped entirely away. A watchman whom he would call as a witness met the cab, and a little further on he en- countered a sailor (prosecutor) covered with dust and dirt, bearing traces of a struggle, and going towards Cardiff. Although he bad b"en drinking he was well able to walk, and knew what he was about. Prosecutor in his evidence said that when he was paid off from his ship at Cardiff he received S23 odd, add that he had about ;E16 in his possession when he entered the cab to go for a drive. Evidence having been given by Mrs Organ, Eastbrook Charles French, barman at the Swan Hotel; Police-sergeants Bates and Berry, and the prisoner, the jury found Bennett guilty y of robbery with violence, «nd the woman not guilty, and she was discharged. Addressing Bennett, his Lordship said that he bad made au ingenious and bold defence, but it was untrue. Ths sentence would be four calendar months, and he gave that only on account of the- good character he possessed before but it was a very bad case.

HEATH. Dr P. J. O'Donnell presided over a meeting of this committee on Thursday in last week, Councillor Milward and Dr Treharne being the only other members in attendance. MEDICAL OFFICER'S QUARTERLY REPORT. The Medical Officer of Health (Dr G. Neale) reported that during the second quarter ending June 30th there were r, gitered 218 births 121 males and 97 females, t qual to a birth-rate per 1,000 per annum of 32'2. During the cor- responding period of last year the birth-rate was 39'7 The number of deaths registered from all causes was 83, viz., 50 males and 33 females, equal to a death-rate per 1,000 per annum of 12'3, compared with 12'4, the rate of corresponding quarter of previous year. From the principal zymotic diseases four deaths were registered, equal to a death rate per 1,000 per annum of 0*6, against 16, the rate of the second quarter of 1901. There were 30 cases of infec- tious diseases reported to me by the medical practitioners under the Infectious Diseases Notification Act, against 55 in the second quar- ter of pieeeding year, and are as follows: small-pox 1, scarlet fever 23, diphtheria 2, erysipelas 3, typhoid fever 1. The general health of the town is exceptionally good, there being not more than one or two notifiable diseases in the district." DIPHTHERIA THAT WAS NOT DIPHTHERIA. The Chairman called the attention of the Committee to the fact that two cases had been notified of "diphtheria," but two days after receiving the notification th9 two men supposed to be afflicted were at work. The men belonged to a vessel at the docks. It was, therefore, scarcely fair to have such cases notified as diphtlieiia. Dr Treharne: It is a pity, too, to have it spread about that there is diphtheria here when there is none in the town. We can do nothing, however. The matter then dropped. PROPOSED SMALL-POX HOSPITAL. The Penarth District Council clerk (Mr J. W. Morris) wrote asking that the Council should fix the time and place for a conference on this subject, dud it was decided to make arrange- ments to meet these and the representatives of the Llandaff and Dinas Powis District Council.

The Surveyor said they bad land sufficient for 116 allotment plots at the Buttrills, and it was decided to advertise for holders. BEACH REPORT. I' WJIS decided to prosecute a boatman who did not comply with the iuies. In the course of Lis report Inspector Medlin said that 38,000 people bad visited the Island during the past month from the coal districts. The practice of women frequenting the rocks on which men undressed was again referred to, the Inspector stating that "local ladies" were as bad as those from the hills. (Laughter.) SEATS. The Chamber of Trade wrote offering twelve seats for the use of the public, and suggested spots where they should be erected, and the Chamber was thanked for the seats, and it was directed, where necessary, to obtain the consent of landowners on whose land they are to be erected. MORE LIGHT. Dr Treharne called attention again to the inadequate lighting ef the Barry Company's road between Weston Bridge and the top of No. 2 dock, and it was agreed to write to Mr Bell, the engineer of the Company, on the subject.
FINANCE. The monthly meeting of the Finance Com- mittee of the Barry Urban District Council was held on Friday afternoon last, and presided over by Councillor J.

Pardoe, the surveyor,, stated that 15 men iu his department signed the pay sheets bymr-ans of crosses.—Nothing further was done in this matter. TREASURER'S STATEMENT. Mr C. B. Brown, acting clerk, read out the treasurer's statement, hich showed that £ 3,165 was now due to him after paying the last month's bills. APPLICATION. An application was read from the librarian (Mr J. Rocb) asking the Council to supply the library with a bound copy of the minutes.—It was decided to comply with this request. MONTHLY ACCOUNTS. The only other important business transacted was the passing of the monthly accounts, which took ap most of the time of the meeting.
Boxing Contest at Pontypridd. BARRY MAN VICTORIOUS. Professor Cullis' pavilion at Pontypridd was crowded on Saturday last, when a ten- round glove contest for a purse of £ 20 was arranged to take place between Jim Courtney, of Barry, and Tom Crokeing (" Tom Cochin "), Hafod, Pontypridd. In the fifth and last round Courtney started by driving both fists to his opponent's face, and hit him three times without getting a return. He was fresher than Crokeing, and was evidently waiting for an opportunity to decide the issue. He had not long to wait, for the round was scarcely half through when he landed his right on the spot. The Hafod man was floored, but realising that he had met his match he did not rise until he had been counted out.

Fatality at Barry Island. CARDIFF BOY DROWNED. On Monday afternoon a Cardiff lad named Sidney Clemerson (13), son of Mr Harry Clemerson, boilermaker, 45, Topaz street, Roath, was drowned whilst bathing in Whit- more Bay, Barry Island. Clemerson, who, with a brother and two other lads, had gone out for a day's enjoyment, was bathing shortly before two o'clock. One of his companions named Giles saw him go beyond his depth, and cried out to him to return. Clemerson did not do so, however, and shortly afterwards threw up his arms and disappeared beneath the water. Giles made an effort to save his companion, and dived several times in the hope of reaching him. Clemerson went out beyond the danger post when the ti-de was at its lowest, and must there- fore have got into the current, which swiftly passes up and down channel. On Monday night, by permission of Major J. Arthur Hughes, a search party was organised when the tide bad receded, but no trace of the body could be found.
A Strange Standard of Value. C;ip*;sin Barbelj", an Anglo-Indian of infinite siort life of thirty five years was crowded more incident than falls within the experience of most centenarians, had the misfor- tune to lose a leg at the seigne of a city in India, and was awarded a Government annuity of £ 50. Thereafter, the Captain adopted a standard of value peculiar to himself, and would refer to f,100 as two legs, 1:25 as half a leg, and so on. It is not to every portion of the human body that Captain Barberie's system could be applied. A human being may loose a leg, or even two legs, and yet live but no government has ever been called upon to allow a man a pension because he had lost his stomach, his liver, or his heart in its service. (We use this last expression in its physical and not its romflnLic sense). The loss of those necessary parts of our being means death their derangement, misery. Hundreds of thousands could from bitt< r experience tell us as much, but for the present we will be content to listen to what Mrs Annie McDonald, of Homeood Villa, Winstanley-cres- cent, Ramsgate, has to say. "It was at the age of 21," writes Mrs McDonald, that I was first attacked by indigestion. It began in the usual way—a feeling of pain and dis- comfort after food, slight at first, but gradually increasing in intensity until it became veritable torture, and I was afraid to eat tven so much as a piece of bread and butter I thought it would pass away of itself, but instead it daily grew worse, and I was compelled to seek medical advice. I wf nt to one of the great London hospitals, were I was questioned and sounded, and sent home with a bottle of cod liver oil, being instructed to eat the most nourishing food and take plenty of fresh air. It was impossible for me to follow this advice, for I had no appetite and was, besides, afraid to eat. The cod liver oil I forced myself to take but it was rejected immediately, and I could never succeed in keeping it on my stomach. rids difficulty I explained to the doctors, « ho merely told me that I must persevere with it. Finding no relief, I tried three other hospitals in succession, butcontinutd to grow worse..1 became thim.er and thinner, lrl with sunken eyes and drawn face at the age of 26 app^arprl like an 1'¡1 woman, For five years I suffered this misery, the pain I endured being only too apparent in my face. Some people were of opinion th;it I was consump- tive, and told me so. The fe .r that I should die and leave my little oues quite uunerved me. We went to Brighton to live, and while there I ex- perimced one of my wot-se attacks. It was on that occasion I was advised by a neighbour to try Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup she had used it herself, and knowing its worth, was convinced it would do me good. I obtained a half-crown bottle of it, and never was money better spent. At the end of a week I was a different womau-I felt better and brighter, and my appetite revived. Three other half-crown bottles completed the work w hich the first had begun, and ever since my health has been as gi od as I could wish it to be."

English in Welsh Sunday Schools. At the East Glamorgan Welsh Calvinistic Methodist Monthly Meeting, held on Thursday at Mountain Ash, the Rev M. H. Ellis, Trealaw, moved the notice of motion standing in the name of Mid-Rhoudda District meeting on the matter of the Suuday school examinations. Mr Ellis explained that many of the candidates in the annual eximination were writing their papers in English, though belonging to Welsh churches, and that consequently many of these young people were losing their knowledge of Welsh. This was a delicate matter, but be felt it was time something should be done to pre- serve the Welsh language. It was important that the young people of the Welsh churches should be able to understand the language used in the chapels they attended. The Rev J. M. Jones, Cardiff, felt that it was difficult to legis- late on the subject, but he believed if the day schools took up the teaching of Welsh the children would very soon be able to write in that language. He suggested that a strong committee be appointed to meet the Sunday School Committee with the view of finding means to get the children to learn to write Welsh. The following were named as a com- mittee Revs 1. Rees, D.D..J. M. Jones, J. Pumsant Jones, M. Jones (Ton), T. E. Davies, R. Morgan (Tonyrefail), W. James (Aberdare), Mess^ J Lloyd (Barry), 1). Evans (Hirwain), and W. Williams (Pontygwaith).
