I FREE fUEL. I FREE FUELE SWANSEA BEACH i 1* SCENES. "SALVAGE" OF THE SEA. Unique scenes were witnessed on the Swan,»aa fcureshore on Saturday afternoon an d Sunday, hundreds of tons of patent fuel being washed up and scores of people cart- ing and carrying it away to their homes. All salt sof receptacles were used, including tin a, baths and wheeJb arrows. One en- thusiast impressed an old basinette into the service. CARGO DUMPED OVERBOARD. The explanation was that the sailing Ship Gastieton, which recentl y ii the ri ver, lightened as she left port by dumping overboard some of her cargo. It is stated she could not at the moment obtain storage room, and, contsequently, considering the gale, thare was only one thing- to be done. The fuel at times came up in large nuni- bers on the beaob, and there were some amusing scenes in the rush and scramble for the treasure." On Saturday night and Sunday morning the gtliff south -west gale continued at Swan- 00:1, and considerable further damage was done to the stone embankment by the black- boards. The waves struck the emibarikmeait to the accompaniment of a NOISE LIKE CVNONADE. and shot eighty feet high into the MT. Huge stones were washed down on to th? beach, and others were displaced and rolletd yairds away on the top. The coping of the em- bankment is badly cut up for over 200 yards, t/bo depth of masonry to the extent of six jjeeit having- disappeared in some part. Hundreds of tons of the" backing" of the embankment in the western coa-ner weire scoured out. The gale moderated oansidefra/bly during Sunday morning. Swansea, in common with other parts of the country, is now enjoying mild and fair weather. k
