Mertbyr, who beat Kid Fitzpatrick," of Birmingham, a short tirre ago. The bout opened rapildy, both lads hitting heavily Proberts drove in a left and punished Beynon in the fourth round. Beynon guarded off his opponent, who forced matters. Proberts was chiefly the aggressor, and the contest was fought throughout at a very fast pace, each combatant attacking and defending in turn. The referee gave his decision as a draw. SCHOLASTIC.-Coii,gr--tulat-,tons to Phyllis Mur- ton, now of Westminster, upon her sucecss in gaining one of the junior county scholarships of the Education Department of the London County Council. The scholarship is tenable for three years, and secures admission to the well-known Grey-coat Secondary School, West- minster, one of the best schools of its kind, not only in London, but in the kingdom. This little scholar, who is now eleven-and-a-half I years of age, received her earliest scholastic training at St. David's Schools, Merthyr, of the girls' department of which her mother was ¡ for nearly 13 years the head mistress. SHOOTING CLXTB SUPPER--On Tuesday night Mr. A. P. Morgan, hon. secretary of the Merthyr Constitutional Club Shooting Team, gave a supper to the team and a few friends. Mr. Morgan presided and a jolly evening was spent. The chairman gave the toast of The King." —Mr. W. H. Baker proposed the health of Mr. A. P. Morgan, who suitably responded.—Mr. W. Macdonald gave the toast of The Captain," to which Mr. A. F. Berry responded, and Dro- posed The Visitors,"—Mr. G.

Baker played a trombone solo, and songs were rendered by Mr. Miles, Mr. Ben Vaughan, and Mr. Harry Taylor. The accom- panist was Mr. Dd. Davies. To OWNERS OF DOGs.-The police are on the look-out for collarless dogs. At the police court on Tuesday, a number of townspeople were summoned for not complying with the provisions of the Dogs Act. Some of the defendants said that the dogs slipped out of the front door without their collars, which were hung up in the hall, or elsewhere, and in these cases Sir Marchant ordered the payment of costs (3s. 6d.). Those who had not bought collars were fined 5s. and costs each, the total amounting to 12s. In one case a man was summoned for allowing his dog to be in the street after sunset. The animal was observed by a police officer, arrested, locked up, and spent the night in tho cell. Owners of dogs who have not yet purchased collars should take the hint. It is cheaper to spend half-a-crown upon a collar than be fined 12s., besides losing a day's work to attend court. MOTOR CAR WRECKS A SHOP.—A few days ago, a runaway motor car crashed into and wrecked the shop of Mr. D. Jones, chemist, Lincoln, formerly of Merthyr. Careering at a great speed straight across High-street the car plunged into the shop window with a terrific crash. The frame of the window was torn out, the whole of the glass panes shivered to atoms, and the contents of the window. chiefly bottles and other vessels, were smashed almost without exception. The entire windew was forced back into the shop several feet. There is a counter running from the further end of the window, and another at right angles, and both these were shifted bodily, the second counter, with its tall partition, behind which prescriptions are made up, being crushed back against the wall. Had Mr. Jones been making up prescriptions at the time he must have been crushed to death. As it happened, he was in the shop, but in the only place where he could have escaped injury, namely, close to the house door. DISORDERLY WomEN.-At an occasional police court, on Monday morning, before the Mavor (Alderman Wilson) and other justices, two women were charged with disorderly conduct. One, Emily West, was charged with being disorderly at the police-station, on Saturday night. Emily went to the police- station and applied for a ticket for a doss." As she was very disorderly and abusive, she was placed in the cells.—In reply to the Mayor, Emily said she did not wish to walk the streets all night, and she pleaded to be allowed to go as she was sick and tired of leading a had life. Being an old offender, however, the Magistrates imposed a fine of 5s. and costs, or 7 days' imprisonment. As she went down the stairs to the cells, defendant shouted that she would be as great a nuisance as ever when she came out of prison.—The other woman was Ellen Evans, who had discharged herself from the Workhouse. She was ordered to pay 5s. and costs or go to prison for 7 days, for being drunk and disorderly in the streets, on Saturday night. CHRIST CHURCH, CYTARTHFA.—On Thursday a tea and social were held in the schoolroom at Georgetown. A large company sat down to tea, the tables being presided over by Misses M. James, Lloyd, Pnco, B. Rees, Matthews and W. Livsey. After tea a musical programme was gone through. Songs were contributed by Misses N. Biddle and L. Lewis, and Messrs. Lee and Alf. Lewis (hon. treas.), and a violin solo by Mr. Tom Pritchard. During the interval Mrs. C. Biddle, in the absence of the Vicar and curate, presented Miss A. Livsey, who is leaving shortly for Abercynon, with a teacher's Bible and commentary, from the teachers and scholars of the Sunday School, and a hymn and prayer book on behalf of the Girls' Friendly Society (Cyfartbfa branch). Miss Elsie Thomas also made a presentation on behalf of Miss Livsey's class. Miss Livsev, who was received with cheers, suitably acknowledged the gifts. Messrs. Lewis and Vince (hon. sec.) expressed the regret of -the teachers and scholars at Miss Livsey's departure. A vote of thanks for presiding over the gathering was accorded to Mrs. Biddle, on the motion of Mr. G. Oliver, who expressed the hope of the teachers that Mrs. Biddle would preside over the Sunday u erul School now that the post of superintendent is vacant through the removal of the Rev. G. Jones to Beaufort. Games were indulged in till 10..30 p.m., when the gathering dispersed after a very enjoyable evening.
