GALLANT ACT OF BRAVERY BY A BERRIEW BOY. A very interesting ceremony took place in the hall of the Victoria Schools, Fenartb, on Monday when the cel tificate and bronze medal of the lloval Humane Society were presented to W H Berin, apprentice 00 board the ship Laomene, of Liver- pool (Captain Hughes). Mr Sani Thomas, dock- master, Penarth, who acted as chairman, in intro- ducing young Uevan, explained to the visitors and scholars the incidents which led to this presenta- tion. On the night of January 2nd a man passing along the Penarth Dock lost his footing and feil into the water. Sevan, who was washing himsolf en board sh:p at. the time, upon hearing the cries of the drowning man sprang ashore, and, although from the top of the quay wall it was almost im- possible to see the man, the lad plunged into the water and supported him until help arrived. The chairman brought the matter before the Royal Humane Society, with the result that they decided to award the bronze medal and their certificate for life saving to Bev&.n. It was thought, the chairman explained, that if the presentation were made before the scholars of the day school it might encourage them to strive to learn swimming, especially since the school board have made arrangements for the ohildren to attend the local swimming baths. Mr Thomas then formally pre- sented the lad with the certificate and u-iedal.- Bevan, who was received with ringing cheers, modestly rc-plied.-The visitors, including Captain Hughes and the lad's shipmates, were eitertained at the close of the ceremony by the lady teachers of the school.
