WISE AND OTHERWISE. She: "Have you ever loved another?" He: "Yes, of course. Did you think I'd practise on a nice girl like you ? "What induced her to tell you her real age?" "It was her birthday party and I was giving her a kisa for each year. A.: "What lovely black eyes she has!"—B. "Yes; hereditary."—A. "Ah! I suppose her mother?"— B. "No, her father. He was a pugilist." Conductor: "How old are you, little girl?" Little Girl: "If the company doesn't object, I prefer to pay my fare and keep my own statistics." Fred: "Miss Pinkleigh has the most beautiful natural complexion I ever saw." Bess "Possibly; but I wasn't aware that she ever allowed anyone to see it." "Deary." "Yes." "Do you think I am making any progress in courting you ? No you are not even holding your own." He was doing so soon after, though. "la there any kind of coat that never has any buttons on it ? asked a mission teacher of a class of of newsboys, "Yes, sir, a coat of paint," was the instantaneous reply. "Goodness, Maria, was that phonograph open during a dog fight ?" "No. I turned it on last night when you were sleeping. Perhaps you will believe now that you snore." "It's all right to get married," remarked the would-be groom cheerfully. "Wo could live on faith and hope." "Yes. and charity," brightly added the prospective bride. "You needn't tell me," averred Miss BlatchgurU "that golf isn't good exercise. It makes the young men so much stronger in the arms that— that you can scarcely breathe." A Good Reason.—She (angrily): "I believe you think more of that nasty old pipe than you do of me: your wife." He (mildly) "Well, my dear, I can keep my pipe from going out." "How do you manage to wake up so early in the morning ? Oh, I make myself believe that every morning is Sunday morning, and that I may sleep if I want to. Try the scheme It's grand." "Don't you feel inspired when you stand up before a large audience?" "Yes, and I have stood up before some audiences when I have felt other things besides inspiration." Clara (an amateur vocalist): "If you had my voice what would you do with it ? Maude: "I don't know, dear; but I believe I would give it a holiday till the man came round, then I would have it tuned." "The average life of an engine only thirty years ? said an astonished passenger. Why, such a tough-looking thing ought to live longer than that." "Well," said the driver, "perhaps it would if it didn't smoke so much." Mistress: And where did your mother take you for your holiday yesterday, Mary?" Maid: "Oh, we went to Madame Tussaud's, m'm we always goes there when mother comes up to town. You see, it makes it so interesting 'avin' uncle in the Chamber of 'Orrors." Small Willie, after eating two pieces of pie at dinner, asked for a third. "Why, Willie," said his father, "you must not eat so much or people will call you a pig. You know what a pig is, don't you?" "Yes, pa," replied the precocious youngster. "A pig is a hog's little boy." "I hear you are going to Australia with your husband, Kitty," said the mistress. "Aren't you nervous about the long voyage?" "Well, ma'am," said Kitty calmly, "that's his look out. I belong to him now, and if anything happens to me it'll be his loss, not mine." "There's one thing I will say about Charley," said young Mrs. Torkins, "he has a lovely dispo- sition, even if he doesn't always display it at home." "How do you know ?" "I heard some of his Wall-street friends talking about him. They say he is a perfect lamb." Mr. Polk 44 My gracious It's nearly midnight. I suppose I'll get the reputation of being a very late caller." Miss Patience: "Oh, 1 don't mind late callers." Mr. Polk: "No? I'm delighted to-" Miss Patience (desperately): "No; it's the late leavers who bore me." "Willie," said his father, as he proceeded with the spanking, I am sorry to have to do this; it hurts me more than it does you." "Well," returned the precocious youngster, resignedly, "I never did believe in these here sympathetic strikes, anyhow. They always do more harm than good." A new boy had come to school fresh from the- country, and the ready "sir" and "miss" of the city child were quite unknown to him. "What's your name ?" queried the master. "George Hamil- ton." "Add 'sir' to that, boy!" "Sir George Hamilton," was the lad's unexpected correction. "I'm so sorry you hurt your fingers, Johnny. How was it the squib went off in your hand ?" "It was all dad's fault. He was coming up the street, and I was going to drop it out of the window on his head, but he walked so slow that the thing went off before he got underneath the window." Photographer: "Madam, I can't give you the desired pose unless you look at that little spot on the wall." Mrs. Rural: "Never you mind about no pose. I'm not a-goin' to be took as though I was trying ter squint through the keyhole. I'm starin' straight ahead or this thing don't get took." "It is a blessing," said the patriot, "to live under a system which makes imprisonment for debt impossible." "I don't know about that," answered Mr. Dunbrowne. "It might be some satisfaction to a man to feel that he was safely housed where his creditors couldn't get at him." They were speaking of the new woman move- ment. "If a girl proposed to you," she said, "you wouldn't dare refuse her." "If a girl had the nerve and determination to make a proposal," he replied, "I wouldn't dare marry her." In view of the circumstances she decided to wait for him to speak first. "You are charged with attempting to commit suicide," said the Jbdge sternly, to the prisoner at the bar. "I was driven to it, your worship," stammered the unfortunate "I was driven to it by a woman "Hum," mused his lordship. "Then," guddtfaly, "did she refuse you, or did she marry you?" Auld Kitty was milking the coo. and a mad bull was coming down the meadow to look for someone to assassinate. Still Auld Kitty milked on. A looker-on from a safe position saw, to his great astonishment, that the bull, when he got near the cow, pulled up, and set forth in search of fresh prey. "Were you not afraid?" cried the looker-on to Kitty. "Nae a bit," she cried, going on milking; "this coo's his mither-in-law." An old lady, on seeing the electric light in the town for the first time, was struck with amazement. After gazing at it for a space she entered a grocer's shop and asked: I say, mister, how do you make that big light o' yourn? I'm tired of burning paraffin." The shopman replied: "Oh, it is caused by a series of electric currents." "Is it, now?" said the old lady. Then weigh me a pound; if they won't do for lighting I'll use 'em up for puddin's." A man had been entertaining a "brither Scot" at his home. The whisky flowed freely, and at the "wee sma' hoor ayont the twal' the guest staggered to his feet. The host sat still in his chair, and, summoning his servant, ordered him to find a cab. "Guid-bye,"he said to his visitor, "an' ye'll excuse me coming oot. I'm afraid of the draughts." Then, gazing earnestly before him, he added Man, when ye get ootside ye'll see twa cabs. Ye'll tak' the first; the ither's no there The Master and the Gardener.—A gardener, over- whelmed by sleep and fatigue, lay down in a comer •f the garden to repose. His master, who had some orders to give him, after having looked for him a long time, perceived him sleeping in the shade. He awoke him and said: Idle man, is it thus that you work ? Begone, you are not worthy that the sun should shine upon you." "I know it," replied the gardener, rubbing his eyes • "it is for that reason I put myself in the shade." "It would appear that woman's mission on earth I is to annoy shopkeepers," remarked a provision merchant the other day. "How do you make that out?" asked a friend. "Well, yesterday a woman called here and asked to sample some cheese. She tasted no less than five different makes, and then coolly said she'd take a quarter of a pound." "And did you supply her?" "I simply said:'My good woman, you've got that already, and attended to the other customers. I don't think she'll annoy me again." Just after the fall of Bloemfontein soldiers were called upon, owing to the scarcity of civilians, to work the railway. The weary men were lying in camp one night after a bard day's work when a sergeant called out: "Any of you men want to put your names down as railway porters, drivers, stokers, or for any other appointment connected with the railway?" The silence was broken only by snores. Then one Tommy slowly raised his head and drowsily muttered: Put me down as a sleeper." Wife "All our neighbours are going away for the summer, dear." Husband: "Well, that's good news." Wife: "Why is it good news?" Husband: "Because if they are all gone no one will know that we remained at home." A Smart Commercial.—Recently a commercial traveller said to a second knight of tha road: "I will wager anything you like that you cannot spell three simple words that I will give you, within half a minute." "I will take that on," said the other Well, here goes," said the first man, as he pulled ut his watch. "London." "L-o-n-d-o-n." "Watching. "W-a-t-c»h-i-n-g." "Wrong," said the first man.

Dinas Powis Parish Council. SUNDAY TRADING IN THE PARISH. The monthly meeting of the Dinas Powis Parish Council was held on Monday eveuing at the National Schools, Dinas Powis. There were present Major-General H. H. Lee (chairman), Messrs H. Wallis, J. Isaac, T. Cram, H. Barrett, II. Naldrett, J. Howell, and H. Wright.-The tender of the Barry Urban District Council for the supply and erection of six extra lamps for different parts of the parish was accepted, the price being £2 14s 4d per lamp. -A motion brought forward by Mr Cram to give the present lamplighter a week's notice, and then reconsider the appointment was defeated. Mr Cram stated that the lamplighter was paid too much for the work done.—Mr J. Howell raised the question of Sunday trading in the parish. He moved that the Council petition the Chief Constable to prosecute the defaulting shop- keepers. The chairman stated that the Council bad no jurisdiction in the matter and had no power to conduct a criminal prosecution, though any individual could take action him- self. The matter was then dropped. -Mr H. Barrett having raised the question of the state of the Millbrook-road, the Chairman suggested that the Parish Council should apply to the Rural District Council to put the Private Street Works Act into force at Dinas Powis.
Marriage of the Rev Aaron Davies, D.D. On Tuesday, at Seion Welsh C.M. Chapel, Cadoxton, the marriage took place of the Rev Aaron Davies, D.D., of Court-road, Barry, Moderator of theWelsh Calvinistic Methodists, and member of the Welsh Central Board, to Mrs Hannah Horner, of Shrewsbury. The former is 72 years of age, and this is his third time of going through the marriage ceremony as a bridegroom. The bride was attended by Mr George F. Horner, her son, while Mr and Mrs Davies, architect, Pontlottyn, the son and daughter-in-law of the bridegroom, also at- tended. The Rev W. Williams, pastor of the church, officiated, the newly-wedded couple afterwards driving to the railway station en route for Weston-super-Mare, where the honey- moon is to be spent. Although the fact that the wedding would take place was little known, several persons connected with the church beard of the affair, and showered the rev gentleman with confetti and rice as he emerged from the chapel building, and some enterprising school children who gathered round were re- warded for their persistence in getting "luck- money,"
Shop Assistant and Bricklayer. WHICH IS THE MORE INTELLIGENT? A council meeting of the South Wales branch of the National Shop Assistants' Union was held at Cardiff on Sunday, when Mr G. P. Roberts, Pontypridd, presided over a large attendance of delegates. Preliminary arrange- ments were made for the forthcoming visit to the district of Sir Charles Dilke. The member for the Forest of Dean will address a meeting at Porth on the 18th inst., at which Sir Alfred Thomas, M.P., and Mr W. Abraham (Mabon), M.P., are also expected. Reports showing the state of the branch organisations were re- ceived, and it was stated that Mr Pearse, the organising secretary, will visit the district from October 27th to 26th November to address meetings. Mr Paul Cox, of Swansea, the dis- trict secretary, banded in his resignation, which was accepted with regret. Mr Cox, in the course of a brief address, said that socially the assistant was considerably in advance of the bricklayer, but the bricklayer was more intelli- gent-he could see a wrong quicker than the average shop assistant. It was decided on the suggestion of Mr W. H. Morris to recommend to the Council a more democratic method of electing the Executive Committee. Mr Morgan, Treorky, moved a resolution, which was unanimously carried, calling upon the executive to formulate a definite policy upon the more pressing questions that affected shop assistants, particulary the living-in question.
Barry Curate's Farewell. MR WILLIAMS' DEPARTURE. The Rev S. H. F. Williams, B.A., curate-in- charge of St. Mary's, preached his farewell sermon at. that church on Sunday night prior to taking his departure for Newtown, the new district near Beaufort, Mon. The rev. gentle- man's departure is very generally regretted, for during his residence here he has greatly en- deared himself to a very large number of people.

DISTRICT COUNCIL COMMITTEES. HEALTH. Dr P. J. O'Donnell, the chairman, presided over a meeting of this committee on Thursday evening last at the Council Offices. There were also present Councillors J. A. Hughes, J. Mil- ward, and W. Paterson. INSPECTOR'S REPJRT. Mr S. B. Sommerfield, chief sanitary inspec- tor, reported that during the last month 140 houses were inspected, 70 nuisances were in- spected, and 70 notices served, of which 68 had been complied with. COMMON AND BUSINESS HOUSES. The Council's inspectors had made several inspections in business and common lodging- houses, and all were found in a clean condition. Seventeen visits to premises were made under the Factory and Worshops Act, and in each case all had complied with same. The slaughter- house was inspected and found to be in a clean condition. INFECTIOUS DISEASES. There were three infected houses in the dis- trict, to which 20 extra visits were paid. Four houses were also disinfected throughout. NEW ALLOTMENTS. At the request of this committee a deputation of allotment holders of the district were present to advise the Council re their intending pur- chase of 6i acres of land near Cwm Barry Farm and 11 acres at Pencoitre, Cadoxton, for the purpose of turning them into public allotments. Mr Lee, who appeared on behalf of the Barry residents, thought the land at Barry would be most unsuitable for allotment purposes, as the soil was on rock, and in a dry season the crop would fail. In respect to Cadoxton, it was pointed out that the site was a suitable one. After some discussion it was resolved to defer the matter in order that the deputation might ascertain the views of allotment holders in their respective districts and see how many persons would take up allotments at a rental of 6d per perch. The question of allowing pigstyes on the allotments was also raised, and this was deferred for a report. Mr Lee asked whether it was possible to obtain a reduction in the price per pbrch of the new Beggar's Well allotments from Is to 9d ? The Chairman: There is no possible chance at the present time. JOINT SMALL-POX HOSPITAL. It was reported that the committee had failed as yet to obtain an interview with the repre- sentatives of surrounding authorities on the above question. It was explained that there was no particular hurry at the present time, and the question was deferred SEATS AT THE ISLAND. Mr J. C. Pardoe (surveyor) reported that Mr Forrest had objected to the erection of certain seats at Barry Island. A communication was then read from that gentleman stating that respectable people often failed to obtain a seat, as they were mostly occupied by the rougher element. He objected to erecting seats for "loafers and corner boys."—Mr Hughes was appointed to see Mr Forrest on the matter. RECKLESS DRIVING. Mr Medlin (beach inspector), in his usual monthly report, stated that the brake service to the Island was still of a poor order. The donkeys on the sands were well kept, but he had cautioned one of the drivers for reckless driving. (Laughter.) Mr Milward: This is extraordinary for a donkey. There is generally great difficulty in making them go. LADIES' BATHING-PLACE. Plans were submitted showing proposed alterations to the bathing pool at Barry Island, in order that it might be utilised for a ladies' bathing-place, as the present system was not suitable. After considerable discussion the matter was left in the hands of the chairman and Mr Hughes to see Mr Forrest and draw up a report in readiness for the next meeting. APPLICATION. Mr J. Harvey, of the Three Bells Inn, Cadox- ton, wrote on behalf of the residents of the old village asking that Oddfel lows'-road be lighted. It was decided to place two lamps there. ACCOMMODATION ON BARRY ISLAND. The caretaker of the Barry Island Cloak- room was instructed to draw up a report in reference to increased accommodation for ladies at the cloakroom. THE ESTIMATE. The estimate of expenditure for the ensuing half-year was submitted and considered item by item, and, with few alterations, was adopted. HOSPITAL. THE ALLEGED NEGLECT. Dr E. Treharne, J.P., presided over the monthly meeting of the above committee, held on Thursday afternoon at the Accident Hos- pital, Kingsland-crescent. The vacancy on the committee, caused by the death of Dr P. A. Kelly, was filled by the election of Dr N. J. Northey Bray by the medical practitioners of the town. With reference to the alleged neglect of treatment to a coal trimmer named Close, who was recently injured at the docks, the committee, having heard the evidence of Dr Billups and Messrs George Payne and John Miles, decided that no blame was attached to the matron. FINANCE. A Is 10D RATE FORESHADOWED. The Finance Committee met on Friday after- noon last at the Council Offices. There were present Councillors J. A. Hughes (chairman), and J. L. Davies, the latter being sent for after some delay in ordar to make a quorum. BALANCE. Mr C. B. Brown reported that the balance due to the treasurer, after paying this month's bills, would be £.5,000, the Chairman stating thH t if a loan with the Cardiff Corporation for £7,500 would be carried through they would have £2,000 in band. GLADSTONE-ROAD. It was reported that the portion of Gladstone- road from Weston-square toCourtenay-road was now completed, and the contractor wrote asking for the payment of the retention money (£200). It was agreed to pay this amount. AN OFFER. Mr J. J. David, solicitor, Cardiff, wrote on behalf of a client offering to sell the Metropoli- tan Bank Building, in Vere-street, Cadoxton, at a reduced price, Mr David stating that the building would he most suitable for a reading- T roouj. Mr Hughes: This is a question for the Libraries' Committee f propose that the letter suit to tiieuj for consideration. This course was adopted. THE ESTIMATE. In considering the rstimatp, it WfS decided to recommend the Council to repair the roads and highways, in the same manner as last year, with local stone, for this would reduce the estimate by JE400. This, with about £300 reduction, would make a Is lOd rate sufficient. FREE LIBRARIES. The monthly meeting of the Free Libraries' Committee was held at the Council Chamber on Friday evening last. There were present Messrs D. W. Roberts (chairman), W. Paterson, J. Lowdon, J. O. Davies, J. A. Manaton, and J. A. Hughes. BOOKS ISSUED. The Librarian (Mr J. Rocb) reported that 4,852 books were issued from the Library last month, classified thus: Religion and philosophy 144, history 116, travel 127, economics, &c.,52, science and arts 292, poetry and drama 42, miscellaneous literature 167. juvenile 531, fiction 2,908, magazines 201, and reference 184, this being a weekly average of 970, and fiction 67 per cent. against 74 per cent. of last year. The total number of borrowers now registered is 4,074. ACCOUNTS. The passing of the monthly accounts was the only other business transacted.
Oddfellows' Meeting at Barry. At the quarterly district meeting of the Car- diff District of the Manchester Unity of Odd- fellows held at the Barry Hotel, under the auspices of the Loyal Lord Windsor Lodge, P.G.M. Brother E. Jones, Cardiff, presided, being supported by Bro. S. Dewar, Penarth, P.D.G.M. J. Jenkins, Cardiff, P.C.S.; T. Jenkins, P.P.G.M., Cardiff, treasurer and re- lieving officer, and other officers and delegates of the twenty-four affiliated lodges. The statistical reports presented from the several lodges were of a satisfactory character, indi- cating the steady progress made by the district, both numerically and financially in Cardiff, Barry, Cadoxton, Penarth, Dinas Powis, &c.
Before better than After. Francis I., King of France, like most monarchs of his day and generation, was more concerned with his personal pleasures than the well-being of his people, and passed the greater part of his time in jousts, tourneys, and revels, leaving questions of State to take care of themselves. The King had a Jester, a fellow of infinite wit and biting sarcasm, whose remarks were not always appreciated by the courtiers. This Jester one day with his pleasantry mortally offended a nobleman, who threatened to kill him, and of this the Jester complained to the King. Fear not," said his majesty; "If the Marquis kills you, I would have him hanged the day after." I would greatly prefer," remarked the Jester, "that your majesty had him hanged the day before." The Jester was right. In most cases the day before is preferable to the day after. Had Mr George W. Waldron, of St. Dunstan's Crescent, Worcester, resorted to the use of Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup when first attacked by indiges- tion, he would have been spared very much suffering. However, he came by the true remedy for that ailment at last, and writing on the 2nd of July, 1902, thus records his experiences When between twenty and twenty-six years of age, it seemed as if I should develop into a chronic dyspepic. After eating, whatever the food or how- ever slowly masticated, I always felt unnaturally full and uncomfortable, this feeling being sometimes accompanied by a cutting pain accross the chest. Heartburn was a constant source of torture to me. To these troubles must be added frequent billious attacks, giddiness, and dull persistent headache, so that, taken altogether, my life was far from being an enviable one. In the end Mother Seigel's Curative Syrup was brought to my notice, and happily I gave it a trial. Three bottles of the half-crown size wrought a perfect cure, and I could afterwards partake freely of food that I had not dared to touch for many a long day. I was so gratified that I have never since ceased to recom- mend it. I have spoken of it to scores of my friends, and would on no account be without a bottle of it in the house. I have found it a true tonic, and have never yet taken a dose of it without feeling better and brighter in consequence. It seems to put new life and energy into me." There could only be one thing more satisfactory than this statement of Mr Waldron's, and that is that his sufferings have been altogether averted-as they might have been. Yes, the day before is generally better that the day after.
BARRY GENTLEMAN INJURED. MOTOR CAR ACCIDENT. Mr John Williams, East View, Windsor-road, Barry, of the Barry Graving Dock and Engineer- ing Company, met with a serious accident while out on a motor car belonging to Mr Rees Jones, printer. Both gentlemen on Thursday last in- tended to drive to Neath, but after reaching Bridgend it was decided, owing to the heavy rain, to return home. Near Cowbridge, when the car was going at a good pace, one of the front wheels was caught by something on the road, which caused it to swerve towards the side, colliding with considerable force against a telegraph pole. Mr Williams, who occupied a front seat, was thrown headlong, and after being conveyed to the Bear Hotel, Cowbridge, was medically attended. He suffered very greatly from concussion, and on Friday Dr Neale saw the patient, who ordered that he was not to be removed for a few days. About five years ago Mr Williams was severely injured in a trap accident near Ilfracombe, and was unable to get about for months afterwards. In the present instance, however, the injuries are not of so severe a character, and on Wednesday he was progressing in a manner that is very com- forting to his many friends. Mrs Williams was at Llandrindod at the time of the accident, and returned with all possible haste to her husband. On Thursday Mrs Lloyd, daughter-in-law, also went to Cowbridge, and each day messages are received at Barry indicating the progress the patient is making.

QUOIT CLUB BANQUET. PRESENTATION OF MEDALS. FAREWELL TO MR TOM GREATREX. The annual dinner of the Barry Quoit Club took place on Saturday evening last at the Ship Hotel, Barry, and was crowned with success. Advantage was taken of the occasion to make a farewell presentation to Mr Tern Greatrex, Barry's veteran quoit player, who is leaving Barry (to-day) Friday for West Africa, where he is taking up an appointment similar to that which he has held at Barry, and also to present the Barry Quoit championship teams with the gold medals which they had won in connection with the South Wales Quoiting Association. About 50 members cf the club sat down to tin excellent repast prepared by the host and hostess, Captain and Mrs J. Macbeth. Ex-Councillor A. T. White presided over the proceedings. The Chairman, in his opening remarks, said that there was only one thing that some extent debarred the enjoyment of the evening, and that was the impending departure of their esteemed friend Mr Greatrex. (Cheers.) He wished him God-speed and every prosperity in his new sphere. (Cheers.) The "Loyal Toast" was then heartily drank, and the company sang the National Anthem. Mr J. Watts, one of the first vice-presidents of club, then presented the champions with their gold medals, which for the third time they had won. That gentleman said he was proud of the honour they bad bestowed upon him. To win medals at quoiting was far more difficult than at any other recreation. Barry had practically defeated every team that had been brought against them from South Wales, and to win the medals three times was, he thought, a great achievement, as it required no little skill on the part of the players. It was, in his mind, unique to have the first and second teams victorious in the same year. The second team in their first season had defeated every team they had met, and be hoped both the teams would pull together and win the medals again next season. (Cheers.) Mr W. Yelland, captain of the Barry first team, responded in a neat speech, thanked all who had assisted him in bringing home the honours. Mr O. Horton, chairman of the Barry Con servative Club, on behalf of the members of the Barry Quoit Club, presented a case of razors and a gold medallion, which the veteran bad won in a competion confined to members of the team. Mr Horton, in a suitable speech, gave some friendly advice how to use the razors, and wished him every success and prosperity during the time he would spend in West Africa. Mr Greatrex, on rising to reply, was greated with loud cheers. He thanked them for their hearty reception. T". :i f -v remarks he said he attached far greater value to tI" ciso of razors that to the medallion he had won, as there had been a sacrifice made in connection with it. It was in 1894 when he first stood outside the Barry Quoit Club ground and heard the clink of the metal inside. which at once gave him the in- spiration to become a quoit player. (Cheers.) He had a liking when a boy for the game of pitching to the dab," and when he was invited inside to the ground he had from that day been a member of the club. (Cheers.) He then began to practice in his spare time, and it was through sticking to it and trying to make him self efficient that he became the proud possessor of the club's medal that evening. (Cheers.) He thanked them for their presentation, and was sorry to have to sever his connection with those with whom he bad so closely been con- nected for the last eight years. (Cheers.) The toasts of the "Chairman," "Host and Hostess," and Press concluded an enjoyable evening. During the evening songs were sung by Messrs Waters, Edwards, Davies, Williams, Saunders, J. Collier, and Jones. Mr J. Ryan, in his usual able manner, presided at the piano. PRESENTATIONS TO MR TOM GREATREX. On Friday night last at the Barry Conserva- tive Club Mr T. Greatrex was entertained to a farewell smoker," and was presented with a gold medallion. The presentation was made by Mr O. Horton, chairman of the club, and speeches were subsequently delivered by Messrs J. Thomas, C. Makepiece, and J. Collier, all wishing him every success in his new adventure in West Africa. On Monday evening Mr Greatrex was at Merthyr, and was again made the recipient of a handsome travelling trunk, the gift of some of his old friends. Recently the members of the Barry branch of the A.S.R.S. presented him with a gold medallion in appreciation of his services as secretary of the bcanch.
BASEBALL. MALLETT CHALLENGE SHIELD. FINAL TIE AT CARDIFF. GRANGETOWN v BARRY. Year after year Grangetown have been in the final for either the challenge cup or the Mallett shield, and have met with success more often than any other club. Once again they have fought their way to the fiual for the Mallett shield, this time one must confess, a bit easily, as they only had to defeat the Newport Tabernacle to get into the last still, whilst their opponents, Barry, who are a much younger organisation satisfactorily accounted for the friendship. Both clubs were fully represented when they turned out just after four at the Jubilee Park, Cardiff, to contest the final tie. The attendance was a large one. The weather, however, was far from being pleasant, the dark clouds over- head portending rain. THE GAM I: Grangetown won the toss, and elected to put their opponents in to bat, A. Dunn opening the innings, W. Perriam being the pitcher. T. Dowdeswell was the first to be dismissed, George Dunn putting down his base with only six runs scored. George Dunn again was re- ponsible for the downfall of S. Harrison, who made a very feeble attempt to hit the ball. Capital fielding by the Grange men witnessed both S. Andrews and J. Martin being run out with the total at 18. J. Heaven, the old Cardiff half, caught A. Dunn and A. Jones behind the home base. Six of the best Barry men were dismissed for 22, whilst a moment later Heaven smartly caught Torrington, and returning the ball to Dunn. At the first base the last- mentioned put Martin's base down, innings eventually closing for 32. A. Spackman was the first Grange man to face J. Martin's trundling. Smart fielding by Charlie Willi ms hehind the home base was re- sponsible for the dismissal of Perriamand Gray, the score book reading—10—4—1. The out- fielding of the Barry men was very bad up to now, the home base being really the only player showing anything like first class form. Lay imparted a little life into the game by placing Martin to the boundary for a well-run 3, thus bringing the score up to 23 for the loss of seven men. Ley's next attempt with the bat scored another trio. This brought the scores equal. One run later Young was cleverly taken in the long field by A. Dunn, Grangetown first innings closing for 36 runs. Grangetown eventually won. The following are the Barry scores:— BARRY—FIRST INNINGS.
