In passing through the streets, Ruth sees a beggar being tormented by the natives. Her sympathy is aroused, and she rescues him. A former servant of Nelson Smithers is engaged to assist them, and disguised as nativies, they enter the Temple. Having found the hiding- place of the idol, Dore attempts to steal it, but is captured. Smitbers takes the news to Ruth, who implores him to try and help Dore escape. He promises cn one condition, that Ruth shall marry him if he succeeds. In her anxiety about Dore, Ruth promises, andSmithers rescues Dore after a desperate struggle." The Belgian Refugees Grand Fete.— The above was held at the Belle Vue Hall on Christmas Day for the purpose of distributing toys, sweets, etc, amongst the children of the Refugees, who are located in Barmouth and far away from their home in devastated Belgium. The room was most tastefully decorated for the occasion, the stage scenery being entirely designed and painted by Mr Charles Costers, who is both a sculptor and a painter of con- siderable merit. The programme com- menced at 4-80 when a musical pro- gramme was gone through. Mr Gilbert Vanden Bosche rendered a Flemish song in good style, followed by Miss Yvonne Decoster who gave a French recitation with good expression. Miss Marie Pots and Miss Marie Germondpre followed with Flemish songs, which were well received by the audience. Mr Maurice Souweine gave a French char- acter song which was very amusing. Then a party of eight children gave the Lancers dance, the movements which were made with a precision most com- mendable. Miss Cbarlottee Bezens gave a Flemieh recitation, followed by Camille Dolmotte with a French song. This singer is well-known in Barmouth. Miss Gabrielle Vanden Bosche gave a Flemish recitation, and Miss Marie Germondpre a Flemish song, both were loudly applauded. Mr Maurice Souweine gave a French character song which caused roar° of laughter. Then Mr Vanden Bosche brought the musical portion to a close by singing the Flemish National Soqg and God Save the King. Then followed the most interesting part of the programme. As far as the chil- dren were concerned of whom there were over a hundred, namely, the dis- tribution of the prizes. The appearance cf Father Christmas on the stage was hailed with wild delight. The ingenuity of the Committee in arranging that each child should ballot for his or her prize was most commendable and gave general satisfaction. The number of prizes provided were ample and Mr Alphonse Souweine,! on behalf of the Refugees, expressed thanks and gratifi- cation to all Barmouth people for their generous coptributions in prizes and cash, which made it possible for them to cheer the children; He also an* 'nounced that early in February they hoped to give a grand concert, the pro- ceeds of which are to be devoted to the funds of the British and Belgian Red Cross Societies. This brought what was really a most entertaining fete to a close, and I am pleased to think that the inhabitants have, in a small way, been able to cheer away what to them are black thoughts, if only for a short period, by their generosity.-G E OWEN, secretary, War Refugee Committee, Barmouth.

when a train was coming. The signal would however show us when:a train was expected. After leaving the cabin I went with John Davies and Richard Williams, and I told the others to put themselves out as before; The deceased had a lamp when he left the cabin. I went on to the signal box to ask them to caution the drivers at Barmouth Junction to keep their whistles open right through the sand. When I was going up the steps of the signal box I heard the whistle of an engine, so my message could not have been given to the driver of that train. It was excep- tionally stormy and windy. We bad been there all the day. No previous suggestions bad been given to the engine drivers to keep their whistles out. Shortly after getting into the signal box John Davies came there, and he asked me to coma at once as there was a man killed. I went with him immediately and after going out 100 yards we found the body of the deceased. He was dead and was badly cut about. Dr. J. Pugh Jones was there, and lafer ttii body was taken to the Station. It is probable that the deceased was alone when the accident happened. I think the de- ceased could have beard the whistle. Everybody else did so. There are no special instructions for safety in cases such as this. I consider all precautions to safeguard the lives of the workmen were taken. The body was lying on the firm footway. The lamp was within 5 yards of the body, and the light was out. George Caffrey, Maebynl I e tb, stated.- I am an engine driver in the employ of the Cambrian Railways Co On Satur- day last, I was the engine driver of the train from Barmouth Junction, which we left at 7.58 p.m. It was a relief to 510 p.m. to Dolgelley, from where passengers had to be carried by motOr to Arthog. At the Junction I bad no instructions as to any workmen being employed on the line. After getting through the tunnel, I whistled to warn anyone near the crossing, and I also whistled afterwards to warn the workmen I knew were employed on the sand. I knew nothing about the accident till after 10 minutes of my arrival at Barmouth station. I did not feel'my engine touching or going over anything. My engine bad the tender first. We can see just as well, but we had the wind in our face. If the engine had been the other way it would not, I chink, make any difference to the accident., I did not notice any lamp as I was going along. After leaving the tunnel I reduced my sppeed, and I could not be going more than 10 miles an hour. I bad passed three times before this time that day along this section. I did everything I could to safeguard lives.* By a Juror—He bad reduced his speed as a precaution. He lost two minutes time in coming from Barmouth Junction to Barmouth. He kept on the Second whistle urtil be bad passed Mr Wellings' house. Dr. J. Pugh Jones stated :—Sometime after 8.15 p.m. on Saturday night last I was called by Owen Davies who stated there was an accident on the line. I went with him along the Jubilee Road and over the wall to the line to a spot opposite Tynycoed. I found the de- ceased dead lying on the land side of the line. I bad the body removed to the Railway Station on a stretcher, and I there examined it. We examined the line of any traces for an accident and found none. The left boot and the hat was off. On examining the body, the left foot was nearly amputated, the bones of the right leg below the knee were crushed. All the bones of the right leg were fractured with the excep- tion of the foot. All bones of the right arm were fractured. No injury to the body, nor to the head. The deceased bad goggles on. Death must have been instantaneous. The engine had pro- bably gone over his legs and right arm, and not ovpr the body. There were no sign that the body bad been dragged along. The Coroner stated that all the evidence available had been laid before the Jury. The occurence was a pure j accident, and it was impossible to say how it happened. From the evidence given itowould appear that the deceased was by himself when the accident occured, and it was satisfactory to think that everything possible had been done to safeguard the lives of these men who were working at the time. As they were ail well aware, last Saturday night was an exceptionally stormy and windy night. The Jury brought in a verdict of Accidental Death At the close of the inquest, it was re- ported that Dr. Pugh Jones bad recom- mended that the body should be removed from the Station to the Mortuary. The foreman proposed a vote of condolence with the bereaved widow, children, and other relatives in their sad bereavement. Capt. Hugh Morris seconded.. The Coroner also wished to associate himself in tfce vote of condolence. Mr Kenrick Minshall, on behalf of the Cambrian Railways Company, expressed sympathy with the family in their sad bereavement, remarking that the de- ceased was a sturdy and industrial, work- man. The vote was carried by all the members upstanding.
