EXTRAORDINARY CASE OF CHILD DESERTION AT YSTRAD. A LITTLE GIRL FOUND IN A GARDEN. DESCRIPTION OF THE CHILD. About 7 o'clock on Tuesday morning Mr and Mra. David Bowen, Tyfry Church Farm, Ystrad, found a. female child lying on the ground in their garden near the closet. The child is about two years of age, and has a fresh complexion, grey eyes, light hair, and full round features. She seems to have been nursed well,, and kept very clean. She was dressed in a Welsh flannel plaid frock, red, grey, and puce colours, white thread running through it, three rows of braid around the bottom of skirt, short sleeves, with one, row of braid, the dress being fastened behind with hooks and eyes. There was other clothing consisting mainly of English flannel, and over all the clothes was a night dress. There was no covering of any kind, however, upon the child's head. The child was cold as ice when found and must have been in the garden some hours, but she is now all right again and doing well and for the present will remain at Tyfry. After the child had recovered it was found that sha was able to articulate seme words in English, but no Welsh. The discovery of the child has caused a, good deal of excitement in the neighbourhood and speculation is rife as to who the heartless person or persons may be who left the child upon a cold night in such an exposed position. The police ara making every enquiry to find the whtreabouts of tho mother. Some people remark that it was a wonder that the cries of the child were not heard, but the probability is that the poor little thing was sleeping when the person in ciiarge left her to her fate. The child is evidently not of local parentage or a traca would fasily be obtained, for a child two years old weuld very soon be missed by the neighbours.
LLANTWIT FARDRE SCHOOL BOARD. The monthly meeting of the Llantwit Fardre School Board was held at the Graig Schoolroom, Poutypridd, on Tuesday, when there were present Dr. Leyshon in the chair, the Revs. Pudney, — Rees, Messrs. James Roberts, and Daniel Bryant.—Mr Phillips, the archi- tect, submitted the ground plan of a new school pro- posed to be built to meet the accommodation required for the increased number of children.—The Chairman said that the committee had met Mr White, of the Maritime Coal Company, on the Saturday following the last meeting of the Board, but they had not coma to any definite arrangement as they did not know positively whether the plot of land offered was suit- able for the extension of the school. They walked over the land, with Mr White, at the back of those schools, and from there to the field where they were now building houses.—Mr White was very much in- clined for the Board to take a piece there, but the Committee pointed out that it would not be suitable and would be very expensive because of the form of the field, and then again it would not be safe on account of the minerals being worked underneath. They came back to the old spot—the spot the Com- mittee thought would suit, and they were goingtio suggest to-day that application should be made to the directors of the Maritime Company for a portion of the gardens behind the houses and the strip of land that would be between the intended road to the back of the brewery and the present garden wall. They thought there would be sufficient ground to make a boys' school. They had instructed the Surveyor to prepare a plan showing what they intended to have, and then if it were decided that that piece would suit, the Committee would recommend that applica- tion should be made to the Maritime Company for the land, and afterwards that plans be prepared and sub- mitted to the Education Department for their approval.-The Surveyor in reply to one ef the members said the plot of land in question contained 2,078 square yards.—Mr Bryant said if it were possible to erect a school on that site he thought it would be to the advantage of the ratepayers generally. Tha Surveyor said that it would make a long shaped school.—The Chairman said that they had broached the subject to Mr White as to whether the company would be willing to sell half.dozen of those houses to make the piece of land mere convenient, but Mr White had said that it was rather a critical matter to ask them te sell new houses.—Mr Roberts said that if they proposed spending money upon the purchase of those gardens they might as well spend the money in compelling Mr Hopkins to sell the land adjoining those schools.—Mr Bryant said in that case they would have to buy Mr Hopkins's houses and his hold on the property.—Mr Roberts said that if they spent money in purchasing a site they might as well spend it upon the very best site to be had.—Mr Bryant said that it would be very expensive to purchase Mr Hopkins's land.—The Clerk, in reply to a remark from Mr Roberts, said that the Maritime Company were willing to sell whereas Mr Hopkins was not.- The Chairman said that he looked at it in this way. If they used the compulsory powers in reference to Mr Hopkins's property he coald put a very hich price upon it. In one case there were only cottages, but in this case there was a brewery and they would have to take into consideration the possibility of Mz Hopkins requiring to extend it.—Mr Roberta eaid it. was not as though they were taking the whole of Mr Hopkins's ground. He had conaiderabletapaee beyond what the Board would require, and if the Board took that portion which had been suggested they would not be pushing him out altogether in any direction which *he might wish to extend. He said he could not see his way clear to support the suggestion of building the addition in that hollow ground be- longing to the Maritime Company.—The Clerk said they would not be building in the hollow, but the playground would be sloping down the hollow.—Mr Roberts replied that they would have to put some masonry work to bring the building up to the level of the road.—Mr Bryant moved that application be made to the Maritime Colliery Company aakiIIg them for the price of the of land as shown on plan.—The Rev Mr Rees seconded the motion which was agreed to.- There were seven applications for the post of assistant mistress at the Graig School.—Mr Roberts proposed and the Chairman seconded that Miss Mary Anne Rees, of Llantwit, be appointed.—Agreed to.

Our Local Boards and the Barry Company. THE present appearance of the road leading 4rom Treforest to Llantwit Fardre where the Barry Railway Company have deviated the road Las caused a good deal of discontent amongst the inhabitants of Llantwit, Treforest -and Pontypridd. A good many people blame the Pontypridd Local Board aud its officials -for the condition of the other part. It may be interesting, therefore, to glance at the steps taken by both Boards with a view of protect. ing the rights of the public, and to enable the ratepayers to decide who is really to blame in the matter we lay the facts before our leaders. The Barry Railway Company in -constructing their line had to deviate the really excellent road which up to then existed "-between Mr Crawshay's house and Tonteg, and in doing so they made two great cuttings, one on the upper side of Tavarn.y.Coed and the other on the lower side of that house. The one on the upper side is in the district of the Pontypridd Local Board and the other in the district of the Pontypridd Highway Board. The upper cutting is spanned at its entrance from the Treforest side by a girder bridge over which the railway is laid, and the abut- ments of the bridge are unfortunately so con- structed that a dangerously sharp curve is made in the road. The slopes of the embank- ment on- both sides, but especially on the upper side, are daogerous, there being no wall or any kii.d of protection to prevent stones and debris falling down into the road. Then the re-construction of the road has made the curve -at Nantydall bridge very much worse than it was previously, the cutting which has been made in the district of the Pontypridd High- way Board also adding to the danger ot this .particular curve. The same complaint as to slopes applies to this cutting and it is said > that the new road is considerably narrower "than was the old road which has been done •way with. The questions are; frequently .sked, "Why are the Railway Company allowed to do this sort of thing ? and who is to blame ?" Let us see, therefore, wnat has been done by the local authorities to guard <he interests of the.ratepaying community. In regard to the portion of the road lying in the district of the Pontypridd Local Board, we may say that the matter was brought before "the Board by Mr Hopkins, and in reply to him the Surveyor, Mr Rees, stated that he had /previously reported that he had not received a plan of the bridge, but only a tracing of the road which was forwarded to him in December last, and which was laid on the table. He also reported that the contractor had not can- ned out the work according to the tracing and 'that if he had it would be a fair approach. The work was constructed during the interval between one Board meeting and the next. During the month he went down aiid pro I tested against the bridge being erected and at the next meeting he reported the whole matter to the Board.-ldr Griffiths also reported the matter to the Highway Board complaining Of the slovenly manner in which the Barry Bailway Company were making the slope*, and it appears likely that the firm attitude re- cently adopted by the Highway Board, is likely to bring the Railway Company to a proper arrangement. We hope the Pontypridd Local Board, at its meeting on Tuesday, will maintain an equally firm front and secure that taeh alterations shall be made as shall ensure todety of life and limb to travellers along this •toMh frequented thoroughfare.

A FATAL AKRANSKMEIT.—MANY LIVES LOST.— Late on Thursday night a somewhat alarming affray took place in one of the houses in the main street of this town. It seems that the members of the household, twelve in aamber, retired to rest at the usual time, everything apparently alright, but in the course of one abort hour a terrible affray took place, in whieh many lives were lost. Oa exami. nation it was foand that the eldest I"n had per. chased a 6d. tin of Hagon's Pewder, and this he sprinkled on the sheets and blankets of his bed, with the result that all the fleas, bugs, &o were oruelly slaughtered. The powder killed them right and left to the joy and satisfaction of the pn; chaser, who had suffered tor many weary nights from the attentions of them minute but very persistent insects.

Jenkins, Williamstown, acted as con- ductor. Mr John Thomas, Ferndale, adjudicated the music, and Mr W. 0. Williams (Glynfab) the essay, poetry, recitations, Ac. The prizes for solo singing weire awarded to Messrs D. Williams, Penygraig, John Rees, Dinas, Master Reynolds, Penygraig; Miss Davies, Penygraig, and a little girl from Heolfach. The production penned by Mr Morgan Thomas, Celinfryn, were considered well worthy of the prizes. The subjects were an essay on Rhagoriaeth yr Urdd Rachabaidd," and a sonnet to Twr Cadarn (Rechabites' Tent). For the best rendering of the trio Fair Flora Decks," that of Mr Thomas and friends, of Porth, was adjudged the best, and they also succeeded in carrying off the prize for the best rendering of the duet, Awelon Ervri." The best speech on Effeithiau Niweidiol o Gynal Cymdeith- asau Dyngarol mewn Tafarndau," was that delivered by Mr John Morgan, Tewynysia. The prize for reciting was divided between aspirants from Tylors- town. The only juvenile choir that competed for the prize for Bands of Hope was given to the Dinas juvenile choir. The singing of "Y Ffynon ger fy Mwth," attracted considerable attraction. Five choira contested for the prize, viz.: Dinas, conductor Mr John Rees; Williamstown, conductor Mr Evan Alexander; Penygraig, conductor Mr Moses Jenkins; Trealaw (Sion), conductor Mr Thomas Davies; Tre- alaw (Bethlehem), conductor Mr William Jones. The latter was considered the best, and he received the prize amidst great cheering. The adjudicators in particular discharged their duties creditably. Glynfab is well known as an able bard and novelist, and thus he is a gentleman well qualified to discharge the duties of an adjudicator. The meeting was very much enjoyed, and it is to be hoped that another treat of the kind will be offered us soon again. Melus moes eto." Finest mild eured Breakfast Baeon, 5d per lb.

LLMOHNO SCHOOL BOARD. The monthly meeting of the Llanwouuo Sohool Board was held on Wednesday, when there were present:—Mr. J. W. Jonea (in the chair), Mr. Idris Williams (in the vice-chair), Rev. B. Lloyd, Messrs. T. Edwards, W. W. Phillips, H. Abraham, C. J. N. Gray, M. H. Thomas, R. Matthias, Watkin Williams, and LI. Llewellyn.-The Clerk (Mr. S. Shipton) referred to the dispute between this boasd and the Llantrisant Board as to the ohildren attending the Hafod School. The Llantrisant Board paid for educating in that sohool 150 children—60 boys, 54 girls, and 36 infants—and could claim three-tenths of the accommodation of the eohool. The Educa- tion Department now insisted upon more acoom. modation being provided at Hafod, and the ques- tion was who should provide it. It appeared that there were 76 infants in average attendance from Llantrisant parish.—Mr. Idris Williams said that the Llantrisant Board had stated at the meeting before last that they had plenty of accommodation At Cymmer, and it was upon their suggestion that the Llanwonno Board recommended that the over- plus ehildren be turned away from the school. The deputation appointed by the Llantrisant Board did not attend here on Wednesday. The matter then dropped. -The Chairman moved and the Rev. B. Lloyd seconded, that the head teachers of Portb school be removed to Ynysybwl—After a discus- sion and division, this was carried.—[A full report will appear next week.]
THE EFFECTS ARE PERMANENT. A WONDERFUL STATEMENT, SHOWING THAT THE BENEFICIAL EFFECTS OF "WARNEWS SAFE CURE" ARE NOT TEMEORART BUT PERMANENT. Tn objection is often made that the beneficial etteeta ot proprietary medicines are only temporary, and that the disease returns as soon an the use of the medicine is dilicoo, tinued. To meet this objection in the case of "WarneeS Safe Cure we give below a single one of the thousands of confirmed' tertimoni&ls in our ponnennion, showing per- manency of effect several years after the cure was wreught. Mr. J. Hiscock, station-master of Taff Vale Bailway Station, Wales, writing under date of JULY 31,1882, says: Having for years suffered from kidney trouble, which ended in abicetis of that organ, resulting from inflammation, with a copious flow of pus, I purchased about IS bottles of Warner's Safe Cure,' the contents of 18 only of which i nave taken. It brought away about two ouneti ofitoiu; the pas ha« oeasedto appear, the pain has vanished, tha water is now clear, end I believe it nas effected a complete cure. I have lonr and fairly tried some of the ablest medical mea m South Wales, but they failed to treat the case success- fully, one of them remarking that medical soience had failed to and a remedy for confirmed kidney disease." Writing under date ot APRIL 87.1888, this gentteman Bays: It is now nearlyl. yort since I disoontinaed the use of Warner's Safe Cure,' and I have had no relapse of kidney trouble, have seen neither stone, gravel, or pus luring that period, no return of the bad, heavy pain in the region of the kidneys which troubled ma for years before I becan the use ot' Warner's Bate Cure.'

TREFOREST RUKMIG GROUNDS. A quarter-mile foot race, for f26 a side, took place on the above path on Monday, between J. Carey, of Mountain Ash, and John Jones (Shonny Dal), of Rhoodda. The betting was rather even in the earlier part ef the morning, but before the start it was all in favour of the Mountain Ash youngster. Shonny had the start, and went well, bat before the tarn Carey spurted and went flying a-head, and won easily by some yards.
POlLY SQUABBLES IN THE RHOIDDI. Women are getting rather boisterous of late in the Rhondda. It is rumoured that last Sunday a quarrel ensued between two families who occupied two rooms in the same house. The altercation rose to such a pitch that one ef the parties resorted to the use of the frying pan. People were amazed to hear such a harsh sound. In fact one could hardly credit that such an instrument was used on the Sabbath with the mean purpose however of hurting a neighbour s feeling. It is sad to say that such were the proceedings carried. on in L small terrace not 100 miles from H-o-f oh en Sunday. Surely those who took part in sueh a play should feel disgusted with themselves to say the least Another episode is that on Monday morning a young wife went in quest of her husband. It appears that the latter had left her through some fault on her part. On arriving at his lodgings she inquired after her husband. After speaking a few words she rushed at him and gave him a sound thrashing in the presence of very respectable people. The poor man remained motionless, in fact it ia said he did-not raise his hands to protect himself. After she "punched" him well she resorted to the use of the most ftlthy language. Toe unwarrantable play being over she left leaving her innoeent husband sobbing from the effects of the blows he had received about his face in particular. If I am not greatly mistaken some women an fast bringing themselves into a state of madness. Men we generally blamed for bad behaviour, but recent facts tend to show that women are the agressors. Sorely something should be done to retard their movements and qaash their nonsense. Should a similar incident tone under our notice again we shall withaat hesitation name the offenders. Be look I ewt.
RHONDDA REVISION COURT. I Mr. Howell Jeffreys, revising barrister, attended at the Public Offices. Pentre, on Tuesday, to revise the list of voters of the Parliamentary division of Glamorganshire. Mr Idris Williams, assistant overseer, handed in the lists and assisted in the work of revision.—Mr J. W. Jones, the secretary of the Rhondda Labour and Liberal Association, watched the proceedings on behalf of the Liberals of the division, and air J. C. Vye Parminter appeared on behalf of the Conserva- tives. A number of claims had been made by both political parties and, as there were no objec- tions on either side, the work was purely formal. In the course of the morning's proceedings, how- ever, the revising barrister drew attention to the fact that on some of the owners' liats the voters' full address was not given, and in three cases instanced by him, there were three voters of the same name and precisely the same address. He said he thought it would be unfair to strike them out now, as they had been on the list for many years, and, no doubt, were entitled to. their voter but he thought, some means should be taken to obtain a full address. He suggested that the assistant overseer should object to those people next year and let them draw up fresh claims. Mr. Parminter added that as the parties might not see the objection if made by the overseer, h«» thought it would facilitate matters if the election agents took action in the matter and the objection was taken in a friendly way on each side. He further added that he had before him then a paper in which for the want of a fitter address a very good description, he thought, was given, a very sensible addition, viz., a statement of the voter's trade as stonecutter.
REVIVAL MEETINGS IN THE RHONDDA. This week an unusual stir has been caused at Heolfaoh and- the surrounding districts, in oonse- quenoe of revival meetings held by the well-known evangelist, Miss Rosina Davies, of Treherbert. It appears that the services of Miss Davies have been secured through the faithfulness of an influential committee. Last week a special request was made, that the churches should unite in prayer each evening during the week. This was done, and much good has resulted. Miss Davies held her first meeting at, Nebo Baptist Chapel on Sunday afternoon, and the chapel was overcrowded. In the evening the services were continued in Bethel Methodist Chapel. People had assembled from all parts, and every available seat was occupied at a quarter to six p.m. Many sooren were unable to gain access to the sacred edifice. The Rev. W. L. Powell, Cross Inn, Carmarthen, introduced the servioe effectively through reading a portion of the scripture, and the rev. gentleman also offered an earnest supplication. This being over Miss Davies gave out the favourite hymn, Gwasgura'r tew Gymylau," 4c. The large assembly rose almost as one, and joined in singing the touching words which are wedded to mournful strains. We must say we have never heard the old tune sang in a more pathetic manner. Miss Davies selected Deuwch bawb ataf fi sydd yn fiinderog a llwythog." The large concourse listened to her discourse with earnestness, and indeed they were so much absorbed that the tiok of the olock could be heard in any part of the chapel. Her address lasted about 40 minutes. At the conclusion of her address another hymn was sang, viz., Ie Dewoh hen ao ieuaine dewch," &o. This part being disposed of Miss Daviee commenced singing old strains joined to suitable words. Miss Davies possesses a nice voice, and she sings effectively. On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday the meetings were con- tinued with much enthnsiusm, and were held alternately in the various chapels. The attend- ance at each meeting was unusually large. We hear that no less than 15 have been converted through the holding of prayer meetings, coupled with the discourses delivered by Mias Davies.

HOLLOWAY'S PILLS.—The great need.-The blood is the life and on its purity depends our health, if not our evistenoe. These Pills thoroughly cleanse this vital fluid from all contaminations, and by that power strengthen and invigorate the whole system, healthily stimulate sluggish organ", repress over. excited action, and establish orter of circulation and secretion throughout every part of the body. The balsamic nature of Holloway's Pills oommends them to the favour of debilitated and nervous constitution, which they soon resuscitate. They dislodge all obstructions, both in the bowels and elsewhere, and are, on that account, much sought after for promoting regularity of action in young females and delicate persons who are naturally weak, or who from some OH use have become so.

SHE HAS THE LAST WORD. I "Oh, dear! "exclaimed Mrs. Fogg, after vainly endeavouring to pour hot water out of the empty teakettle, "how did I forget to fill it, I wonder I'm getting to be a perfect simpleton. I wish I did have a little common sense. U But, my dear," interrupted Fogg, "suppose you had. Do you think you'd know what to do with it? "Do with itl" echoed Mrs. Fogg; "many things. I might want to be married again, you know, and it might save me from making a fool of myself a second time."
CHEATED IN EGGS. A small Somerville boy goes frequently to a neigh- bour's house to buy fresh eggs. Is always given eggs of the Plymouth Rock variety, which have a shell of a chocolate hue. On the last occasion that he was sent after eggs, three of the ordinary white shelled variety were given him with the Plymouth Rocks, to make out the dozen. He received them with a great deal of suspicion, and, a few moments later, he rushed into the presence of his mother, highly excited: "Oil, mother! he cried, "what do you think? They've cheated us! They've given us three that ain't ripe."
