BEFORE THE BENCH MONDAY'S POLICE-COURT PRO- CEEDINGS. DRIVING WITHOUT LIGHTS. After a string of applications had been dis- posed of by the presiding justices, Messrs W. H.. Lewis and John Lowdon, the first two offenders dealt with were summoned for driving vehicles on the highway without having proper lights attached. The two, who were named respectively Frank Lowe and Walter Roberts, were each fined 58 including costs. i I NOT UNDER CONTROL. Wm Petty, a young haulier, was summoned for leaving his horse and trolley unattended in Cardiff-road on the 12th September. Defendant said he left a woman to keep her eye on the animal, but as the "eye" could not restrain the animal should he evince a desire to run away, a fine of 2s 6d was imposed. DISORDERLIES. A warrant was issued for the appearance of Henry Shiel for disorderly conduct, while John Pook, proved to have been guilty of similar conduet in Barry streets, was fined 5s. REPREHENSIBLE PRACTICE. Three youths were summoned for disorderly conduct. The form of disorder in this case proved to be throwing stones at the English Baptist Chapel at a time when religious service was going on inside. Police-constable Price proved the offence, and Thomas Edgar, the only one to appear, was fined 2s 6d, a warrant being ifsned for the appearance of the other two, who were named respectively William Brownhill and Alexander Paterso i. HORSE STRAYING. For this offence Thomas Lovery was fined 2s 6d including costs. THE DRUNKS AND DISORDERLIES. The "soakers" dealt with included William Hartry, who, for an offence in January last, felt the long arm of the law, and was ordered to pay Ts 6d. John White, who was absent, had .deposited 5s as bail, and this he was ordered to forfeit. John Bentley, by the aid of a crutch, ambled into the dock, and confronted the testimony of Police-constable McGovern as to his impertinent and drunken conduct in Holton-road on Satur- day night with a remark that "shurely two glasses of beer wouldn't make a man dbrunk, your worskhip." He had to be conveyed to the Police-station in a cart. A fine of 5s was imposed. Frank Andrews, a labourer, for being guilty of drunkenness, shouting, and kicking at doors at midnight on Saturday was fined 7s 6d. Jllizabeth Clarey, a Cardiff woman. who only stepped out of the Barry train in the afternoon, was found drunk in Court-road within a couple of hours afterwards. She was now fined 5s. David James Deere and Charles Collins, labourers, were also fiued a crown each. Annie O'Connor appeared to answer two charges, in addition to her 17 previous convic- tions, fur drunkenness and disorderly conduct. The offences were committed on the 19th Augmt and the 20th September respectively, at Cadoxton. She was sent to prison for 14 days with hard labour. Charles Williams, a labourer, pleaded guilty to an offence recently committed, and was fined os, while Edward Jenkins, for being found in a drunken state in Harbour-road, Barry, was fined 5s. WAITING FOR THE DAWN. Daniel McCohen and John Kennedy were brought up charged with "sleeping out." They were found by Police-constable Lewis sleeping in Pencoedtre fields. Kennedy ex- plained that he slept there in order to be ready at daylight to go picking blackberries and mushrooms. He could not be regarded as destitute," for he bad a supply of tea, coffee, milk, bread, and meat for a morning meal. They were discharged.
THE HEALTH OF BARRY. llEMARKS OF THE COUNTY MEDICAL OFFICER. Dr W. Williams, medical officer of health for the county of Glamorgan, in the course of a voluminous report upon the health of Glamor- gan for the year 1901-2, points out that the highest death-rate was in Merthyr, where it was 25*85 per 1,000 of the population, Barry being one of the lowest with 12-6, the Llandaff and Dinas Powis district being actually the lowest with 12-77 per 1,000. Of every 1,000 children bom 195 die in the county before attaining the age of one year, compared with 151 in England and Wales. The rates in different districts varied considerably, ranging from 261 to 32, while in three districts (Barry being one of these) they were under 100. The Merthyr officer of health urged illegitimacy as the cause, and the Aberdare medical officer attributes it to careless feeding, while Dr Williams himself considers that the rainfall and other climatic conditions, such as temperature, have an im- portant bearing upon the prevalence of infautile diseases, especially in towns and crowded courts and alleys. Referring to Barry, Dr Williams says Four cases of small-pox were imported by vessels into the port on two occasions; three in one vessel and one in another. The four cases were isolated in the Council's hospital, and the disease did not spread beyond the original cases. Mi-asles prevailed to come extent throughout the year, but no true esti- mate of the number of cases could be formed. In connection with the Sanatorium, Dr Williams quotes the remarks of Dr Neale:—"I have to again ask the Council to take into serious con- sideration the advisability of opening the Sana- torium for the removal of infectious diseases thereto, for this, without doubt, would greatly diminish the spread of infectious diseases." The concluding paragraph in Dr Williams' report states: — "The Jouncil are now, and have been for years, considering the question of providing a new small-pox hospital."

HARVEST THANKSGIVING. RELIGIOUS SERVICES IN THE DISTRICT WESLEYAN CHAPEL, BARRY DOCK. On Sunday and Monday harvest thanksgiving services were held and were unusually well attended at the Wesleyau Chapel, Barry Dock, the edifice being uncomfortably crowded on each occasion a long time prior to the time fixed for opening. The interior of the chapel had undergone lavish decoration, the corn, fruit, and flowers being everywhere conspicuous to exhibit the bountiful provision for the enjoy- ment of mankind. The Rev Thomas Hind, Penarth, superintendent minister, occupied the pulpit in the morning and the Rev Robert Bond, of Penarth, in the evening, both gentle- men delivering appropriate discourses. In the afternoon of Sunday a saered concert was given, Mr E. H. Ede, LL.B., Penarth, occupying the chair. The choir, under the baton of Mr W. H. Shinn, sang remarkably good and evoked mani- fest appreciation. Mr G. H.Woodfield was the accompanist. The programme included a pianaforte solo, Haydn's "Surprize" as the opening, and the choruses How lovely are the messengers" from Mendelssohn's St. Paul; Sullivan's semi-chorus "Yea, though I walk," Turner's exquisite chorus Sun of my soul," which bad to be repeated at the evening service, and Achieved is the glorious work from the Creation. The soloists sang excellently, Miss S. M. Lewis being in usually good voice, the others being Mr Dan Jones, and Miss Minnie Ford (Cardiff). On Sunday evening a full choral service was given, including Mendel- ssohn's "Hear my prayer," Miss S. M. Lewis being the soloist, the choir exhibiting the effect of its splendid training at the hands of Mr Shinn. On Monday evening a public meeting was held, over which Mr T. K Morel, Penarth, presided, the speakers including the Revs R. Bond, Ingli James (B.), T. May, M.A., and J. Jeffreys, and at the close the surplus fruit was disposed of, the collections throughout being in aid of the Trust funds. WINDSOR ROAD CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH. At Windsor-road Congregational Church, Barry, the services were exceptionally well- attended, there being insufficient- room to accommodate the people who attended in the evening. The Rev C. J. Clarke preached ap- propriate sermons, and the choir sang special anthems under the leadership of Mr E. W. Waite.
A WELL-KNOWN RHONDDA CASE. J. MURRAY, 24, OAKFIELD-TERRACE, LLWYNYPIA, Glam., writes :—I may thank you for the good Venn's Seaweed Tonic did me last year. I had a most serious trouble, and I thought I should never be fit for work any more, but I am pleased to say your Seaweed Tonic drove it way, therefore, per- sonally I know it to be a certain cure for stubborn kidney trouble. VENO'S SEAWEED TONIC is the people's strengthener and health giver. It cures ailments arising from diseased condition of the stomach, liver, kidneys, and blood. Its great reputation is well-known in Wales, where it has an enormous sale. Price 1/11 and 2/9 of all chemists and medicine vendors.
MR CARNEGIE'S "GOSPEL." ANOTHER MUNIFICENT GIFT. Mr Andrew Carnegie has offered ;E3,000 to Long Eaton, Derbyshire, for the erection of a free library. Long Eaton is an active centre of the lace trade, and has a population of about 13,000. Mr Carnegie's gift was rendered possible under his rules by the public-spirited actiou of a few citizens or the town, who sub scribed to purchase two acres of land as a site for a free library and technical school, and pre- sented the land to the District Council on the condition that the Free Libraries Act should be adopted. The 25th annual conference of the Library Association was commenced in Birmingham on Tuesday, when over 200 delegates from all parts of the United Kingdom were welcomed to the City by the Lord Mayor. The principal part of the day's proceedings was the presiden- tial address by Prof. MacNeile Dixon, of the Birmingham University, mentioning that it need not surprise them that in the libraries many men should discern a hope for the world. The President remarked that the magnificient liberality of Mr-Carnegie proved him to be in possession of this hope, and Mr Carnegie at least was as much a man of affairs as he was a man of ideas. Against him the practical world will not be likely to bring a railing accusation.
VOLUNTEER INTELLIGENCE. INSPECTION OF LOCAL ARTILLERY. A capital muster of the 2nd Glamorgan Royal Garrison Artillery Volunteers, of which Lord Windsor is the hon. ,colouel, was brought together on Saturday for the annual inspection at Lavernock, one of the defences which they will be expected to man in case of invasion. The parade state showed a total of 691, under the command of Colonel H. O. Fisher. The other officers present were Lieutenant-Colonel Fry, Lieutenant-Colonel F. S. Thomas, Cap- tains and Hon. Majors Handcock, A. E. Taylor, S. A. Brain, A. Sheppard, H. J. Simp- son, W. Lewis, A. Chester Vivian, A. C. Tweedy, W. B. Bradley, Lieutenants Pyman, W. G. Morel, S. H. Hoyle, C. R.

Lynn Thomas, C.B., Surgeon-Captain R. J. Simons, Surgeon-Lieutenant Parsons, Collins, and Bird. The inspecting officer, Colonel Hopkins, who is in command of the Severn defences, was received with a salute, and the battalion was then divided into groups for exercise on the 64-pounder and new 6in. guns. —Colonel Fisher, addressing the men at Car- diff, stated that Colonel Hopkins was very well satisfied with the discipline and capabilities of the officers and men. Colonel Fishtr also thanked the officers, nou-commissioned officers, and rank and file for their attendance at the inspection. Barry No. 11 Company was very fully represented on parade. 1 1TH COMPANY, 2ND GLAMORGAN ROYAL GARRISON VOLUNTEER ARTILLERY.

THE FOOTBALL FIELD. [NOTES BY "ATHLETE."] ASSOCIATION. The majority of South Wales clubs were busy on Saturday, but as yet Barry Uuited has not burst its shell. Next Saturday they hope to do so, and show the world what they hope to do this season. Aberaman, who seem to be a stronger lot this season than hitherto, defeated Treharris by 7 goals to 1. Against Barry they will be a harder tussle. Aberdare smashed up the Cardiff Corinthians to the tune of 8 goals, while Porth and Rogerstone played a drawn game. Barry's chances seem to be more and more roseate as time progresses, and a glance at the names in the eleven chosen will show very clearly that there is plenty of good material at hand to meet the doughtiest foes. As a matter of fact there are plenty of players to obtain two good elevens. It rather shocked local supporters to hear the rumours that Percy Jones was about to go to sea. On Saturday last, however, enquiries at headquarters tended to show that after all we shall not lose him. Let's hope that this is true. The Club have smartened up the ground con- siderably, and on Saturday it is to be hoped that a large crowd will be present to show its appreciation of the splendid efforts put forth by the committee to make the ground worth going to. A grand stand will be a decided addition, and that when covered in as it will be if public support is sufficient, should add to the comfort of spectators. I have had an opportunity of knowing the players'available for the United. They com- prise Sutton and Adams as goal-keepers; Green and Cashmore, backs; Stephens, J. Parry, and Tattersall, half-backs; Thompson, Bevin, Green, Tracey, Parry (late of Liverpool), Pettican, Radcliffe, Shipp, Stillman, T. Wil- liams, late of Aberystwith, forwards. The committee have acted very judiciously in deciding to have a trial match against Cadoxton Rovers on Thursday evening before making 1 their final selection of the team to do duty against Aberaman on Saturday. Personally, I have no great hopes of winning on Saturday, seeing that the Aberaman team is already in full swing, and they are about as hard a nut to crack as can be found this season but when the necessary combination has been acquired Barry ought to do magnificently. Barry District went to Cardiff last Saturday and played a draw against Canton Parish Church in the first division of the Cardiff and District League, and on good authority am told that the District did well, and thorougly deserved a win. In the Barry district Barry Dock Albions and Canton Villa fought for supremacy at the Romilly Park. The Albions played fully up to their reputation, and won handsomely by 6 goals to one. For the Albions Tom Davies and Bumford put on 2 goals each, Evan Jones and H. Thornbull adding one each. Barry Dock Windsors played Barry Island United on the ground of the Wiudsors, the United, who showed great form, winning by a goal after a hard tussle. Cadoxton Rovers were also at home to the Cardiff Moorlands, who retired defeated by 4 goals to 1. Johnson scored two of the goals for the Rovers, and Lowry and Williams one each. Basil Lewis, late of Barry County School, played a great game for the Cadoxton Rovers against the Cardiff Moorlands in the position of centre half. He has improved surprisingly since last season, and his style of play on Saturday was much admired. The Cadoxton Rovers also have another good player in W. Needs, late of Hannam United, Bristol. He figured against the Moorlands in the position of outside left, and his tricky play and dash was much admired. Next Saturday, against Rpath Crescents, the Cadoxton Rovers are trying three new players, besides the two named above, viz. W. G. Jones, late of Barry Island United; J. Williams, late of Aberystwyth; and W. Davies, late of Barry Dock Albions. Barry County School played a scratch team of Old Boys, and won by 5 goals to nil. The latter was, however, not a representative eleven. Other results included a defeat of the West End Swifts by the Barry Dock United 5 goals to 2. Barry Wyndhams were beaten by Penarth Windsors at the Witchill ground by 5 to 1, while Barry Cymrics beat the West End by 2 goals to 1.
RUGBY. None of tha premier clubs played important matches. As for Dinas Powis they seem to have been divided, according to the reports. A section went to Pontypool, and another team styled Dinas Powis appeared against Whit- church Crescents, this being probably the the secong string. At Pontypool the boys of the Village without Franks, who was playing against Cardiff, were ben ten by a point, and the section at Whit church were defeated by 2 points, in the latter case only a goal kick separating the teams. At Pontypool Willie Davies ran through most of the homesters with a startling try, which was subsequently converted, and the homesters, stung by this surprising bit of play appears to have retaliated with a couple of tries. The team can hardly be said to be in full swing. There are a few rough corners to be rubbed off, a little finesse in combination to be secured, and then opponents will feel thwir presence. Franks created a great impression in Cardiff on Saturday. He seems to have caught the eye of the critics repeatedly, for he is fnsquentl/, mentioned as being conspicuous," ewd was afterwards selected for the Seconds.
SMALL-POX AT BARRY. A RESIDENT CONTRACTS THE DISEASE. AN UNFORTUNATE VISIT TO LONDON. Dr C. F. Sixsmitb, Barry Dock, notified to the local sanitary authorities on Sunday last the existence of a case of small-pox in Pyke-street, the patient being a married woman with a family. She had recently been on a visit to West Ham, where she had apparently become infected. A rumour had been persistently circulated for several days as to the case, and inasmuch as delay in notification had been alleged, our representative interviewed Dr Sixsmith on the subject. It is true (that gentleman replied in answer to our reporter's query) that the case might have been notified earlier. The premonitary symptoms of the disease were present as early as Thursday, and under ordinary circumstances the case would have been notified then, but in this town one's professional reputation is in the hands of members of the District Council if it should transpire that the symptoms had proved deceptive consequently I prefer to notify in my own time." "In the present case, has the delay been injurious to the public interest ?" "Oh, no," was the emphatic response. "I took all the precautions from the outset. The patient was isolated strict orders were given to those in charge, and the whole of the occu- pants of the house were vaccinated by me." Is it a bad case ?" "No, it is not in its most virulent form. Having had experience of numerous epidemics, I do not regard it as a very bad case, conse- quently there is no need for alarm." On Sunday night Mrs Daniels was removed to the Isolation Hospital at the Colcot by In- spectors Sumerfield and Hockley.
WELSH CHORAL SINGING. MR LLEWELYN WILLIAMS' SUG- GESTION. Mr W. Llewelyn Williams, M.A., LL.B., has contributed an interesting letter to the contro- versy at present raging in the daily press on the subject of Welsh choral singing. His views have met with a very cordial acceptance by the general public. First Mr Williams directs attention to the essential difference in style of Welsh and English singing. In Wales we have forgotten the lesson which Morgan Llwyd o Wynedd tried to teach to his countrymen- fod i bob aderyn ei lais ei hun," that to every bird has been given his own peculiar note. It is idle (he writes) to attempt to ignore national characteristics in music or in any other form of art. The English oratical style, for instance, is quite different from the Welsh, and Englishmen really believe that merely correct speakerF4 of the type of Mr Chamberlain or Mr Asquith are greater orators than men such as Herber Evans or David Saunders. I suppose it is hopeless to find a Welshman or an Englishman who can or will judge fairly between two essentially different styles and methods. May I, therefore, throw out a sug- gestion to the Llanelly Eisteddfod Committee ? Instead of employing some two or three Welsh and English musicians to adjudicate, why not go outside the British Isles altogether, and bring over a first-rate musician from one of the great.musical nations of the Continent to decide on the merits of the choirs ? I feel certain that a German or Italian would be able to do better justice and to offer more helpful criticism to the competitors than either Welshman or Eng- lishman. It would also help to get rid of our insular idea that the English musical standard is the only possible one.
Federation of Trades and Labour Councils. BARRY'S HOPELESS PLIGHT. At the seventh annual conference of the West of England and South Wales Federation of Trades and Labour Council, held at Bath on Saturday, under the presidency of Councillor J. Chappell, Cardiff, when the Secretary reported that there was work before the Federation in re-constructing or constructing councils at Pontypool and elsewhere, Barry's pitiable plight was emphasised by the Chairman. Reso- lutions in favour of the repeal of the corn tax and against the Education Bill becoming law were unanimously adopted.
Fatality at Dinas Powis. DEATH FROM FRACTURE. Dn Friday evening in last week Dinas Powis was the scene of an unfortunate occurrence, which resulted in the death of Mrs Elizabeth John, of El wick Cottage, wife of a greatly- respected resident, ex-Sergeant John, formerly of the Cardiff police force. In the afternoon of that day Mrs John had occasion to go into the cellar, and she was subsequently found by a neighbour named Mrs Pinfold lying at the bottom of the flight of stone steps in an uncon scious state. Dr Roch was summoned speedily, and ascertained that Mrs John had sustained a fracture of the base of the skull, from the effects of which injury she succumbed a few hours afterwards. It is presumed that she must have slipped and fell. The inquest was held at the residence (before Mr E. Llewellyn Reece, deputy-coroner) on Monday, when, after bearing this evidence detailed, the jury returned a verdict of "Acci- dental death." Mr T. Cram acted as foreman of the jury. The funeral took place on Tuesday, and was largely attended, the place of mterment being the pretty churchyard of St Andrew's. The cortege included several of the sergeant's former colleagues in the Cardiff police force. Rev H. Williams, rector of St Andrew's, most impres- sively conducted the service.

SIR,-There are few matters of more earnest im- portance for the spiritual and moral welfare of seagoing men and boys than to promote a habit of Divine worship, in some form or other, on board British merchant ships. It is so often a bond of harmony, kindliness, and good-fellowship in long voyages. Where foreigners or heathen form part of the crew, as is often now the case, the united worship of our common Father in heaven is invalu- able for the protection of the faith of our own countrymen, as well as for a witness for the Christ under the British flag. One of the difficulties of united worship at sea is the absence of Prayer-books and hymn-books for the crews. For generations the Admiralty have supplied these books to ships-of-war the Trinity House do so co their Light-vessels many of the large ocean-going passenger liners carry them for the passengers and the numerous merchant ships of Norway, Sweden, and Denmark are frequently supplied with Prayer and hymn books by Seamen's Missions belonging to their own nationality. Daily prayer is common in Swedish cargo-ships, as also in our own Royal Navy and Sunday worship obtains in most other vessels which carry the requisite books. Whereas where these necessary adjuncts do not exist, as in so many British cargo-ships, the arews rarely assemble themselves together for united prayer when at sea. Neat and very convenient "Service Boxes" containing Prayer-books and hymn-books, &c, have by the liberal aid of the S.P.C.K. been placed on board merchrnt ships by chaplains of the Missions to Seamen during the last three years. It has been found that where captains are disinclined them- selves to conduct Divine worship with their crews, earnest-minded officers, fiigineers, apprentices, or others on board have gladly accepted Service Boxes for the purpose of starting, by the per- mission of their captains, united service in their ships. The cost of each Box and contents is from 20s to 35s. The experience so gained justifies the expectation that, with the assistance of several shipowners, at least a thohsand Service Boxes might be use- fully placed on board British merchant ships and The Missions to Seamen, 11, Buckingham-street, Strand, London, W.C., would be very grateful to secure a fund of il,200, towards which upwards of £ 200 has already been generously given.

SIR,-Your appreciation of the above motto demands a passing line of congratulation in favour of your paper, therefore I say Why live in Barry, or anywhere else, at lis per week house rent, when similar premises can be obtained in Cadoxton at 4s per week, hot baths, good gardens, open spaces, &c. ? This is exactly as the Legislature intended, giving the assessment at the very lowest point to secure the suffrage of the people and this is all I saw in the Republics I have visited.' Besides, there is the option of joining a Flour and Bread Club, by which these necessary provisions can be obtained at Id per lb. standard. Now, Sir, I am sure you will admit that something must be done for the amelioration of the thrifty classes of this country ?-I am, &c., PETER WRIDE. 1, Jenkin-street, Cadoxton, Sept 22, 1902.
80 PER CENT. BARRY DOCK PEOPLE SHOULD INVES- TIGATE THIS. According to a physician of high standing, kidney complaint is responsible for 80 per cent- of the mortality of Great Britain. Practically speak- ing, eight people out of ten suffer from kidney complaint, even here in our own town. But there is a certain cure, and we are indebted to a Cardiff resident for pointing it out in the following :— I am sixty years of age," said Mrs Hatson, of 41, Jenet-street, Cardiff, to us the other day when we called upon her; "and for some time past I have been a very great sufferer from bad backaches and sharp, shooting pains across my loins. These troubled me a great deal, and I took all sorts of medicines to try and drive the pains away. I know now that they were caused through my kidneys being out of order, as I had every symptom of kidney disease. Some time ago a friend of mine told me about Doan's Backache Kidney Pills, and the good they were doing other people, so I got a box, and I can honestly say they have made a changed woman of me' Since taking them the kidney symptoms have decreased, the backaches have gone, and I can get about my work with ease. I certify the above is correct, and give you authority to publish the facts. (Signed) (Mrs) Mary-Anu Hatson." If you are ill, Nrite and tell us your symptoms. Your letter will be treated in strictest confidence. No charge will be made and we may be able to save you from a world of suffering. Doan's Backache Kidney Pills are 2/9 a box (6 boxes 13/9).

EDUCATION IN GLAMORGAN. HIGH PRAISE FOR BARRY. Mr Griffith Jones, M.A., who examined 1,058 pupils on behalf of the Glamorgan County Governing Body in arithmetic, algebra, Euclid, and history, reported to that body at their meeting on Friday last that in arithmetic there were only a few good scripts from most dis- tricts, while the scripts from the Barry district "showed a striking superiority over all others. In algebra between 700 and 800 scripts were examined (continued the report), and I am glad to say that the work was much better done than the arithmetic. The scripts from the Barry district showed a remarkably uniform level of excellence."
