The Heels 0 of Chance. By Mrs. C. E. WEIGALL. [ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.] (CONCLUDED FROM YESTERDAY.) When Clive Harley faced Joyce Vereker in the centre of the morning-room at Rhondda-, h3 drew his breath sharply with a sense of wonder, for she was the most beautiful girl that he had ever seen. In her white muslin gown, her fair beauty made her took like a tal1 Madonna lily, with her graceful head and its crown of golden hair poised on the slender column of her neck. Her grey eyes under their fringe of black lashes looked out at him with a trusting appeal in their depths that made him realise how young she was; he calculated, indeed, that she could not be more than twenty at the most, and he wondered how aiit: came to be entrusted with such a load of responsibility at her age. I must tell you, first of all." he said, gently, with the light of her grey eyes upon him, "less you should think me an impostor— that my name ii Dr. Clive Harley. and that your telegram was brought to me in Lgis- >treet, where I am trying to get a practice o get her I am of quite reputable birth, for oiy father was a doctor on the Indian Medical Staff, though I am not sure if he is dEAad or alive, since I have not heard of him for ten years! My mother, who is dead, was the daughter of the late Sir Antony Hardacre, and-" But," cried Miss Vereker, sharply, "the Dr. Harley my father wanted to see waa your cather—for Mrs. Harley was hia first cousin, md they were in India together!" "This is an extraordinary coincidence!" said Clive, absolutely bewildered. "I had no dea, even that my father was alive! For .<owe reason he severed all connection with one at the cost of a thousand pounds when I left school." Joyce Vereker was looking at him with wide eyes of amazement, and when he ended she put out her little hand with a pratty gesture of confidence. "I must bid you welcome. Cousin Cli-ve!" she said, gently. "It is a great relief to me to have a relation in the house just now. My father has been out of his mind for man; years, but once Dr. Clive Harley came to see him, as they had been old friends in India. and he begged me whenever my father came to himsell again, tf to himself again, to telegraph for him immediately; and my father regained his senses this morning, and has something that he wishes to tell your father at once." "There will be no harm in my hearing -what he wished to say. you think?" said Clive, with his eyes on the lovely changing face. "I ask you to come with me now to him," returned Joyce, "for the doctor who saw him to-day told me that he hajj not very long to Live." She turned away to hide the teaa-s that refused to stay, and Clive followed her to the bedroom where lay the emaciated figure of her father. He made a gesture of impatience at the sight of Harley s astonished face. It took some time to explain to Jasper Vereker who Clive Harley was, but after this was done he said: "I suppose he never told you the gwrz, eh, Clive? Well. that would be just like his generous, kind-hearted self since he might have thought you would blame me for the folly of losing my memory—but I will tell you the history briefly, for I am too weak to talk much. "Twenty years ago, when your father and I were in India, together, he was lucky enough to cure of a wasting disease the only son of the Rajah of Ruttipore, who rewarded him with a great diamond, that had been takn from one of the temple shrines during the Mutiny. Your father, being on the point of retiring from the Army. and possessed of an excellent opportunity, commuted his pen- sion. and invested the money in some won- derful jewels, that would be worth a large sum in England. « "As I was returning three months before he could leave India, he entrusted the stones to my care, and, needless to say, I was fol- lowed by a couple of natives, who were deter- mined that the '[.tight of Rnttipore' should not be permanently lost to India. With the help of the capfain of the ship, I evaded their attentions, and on landing fancied I had given them the slip; but they were too clever for me, and before I was in the train at Dover I felt stu-e they were after me. So I thought it safer to hide the stones instead of bringing: them to the Castle, and I placed them, as I remember now, in the ice-house down by the lake, where they are deposited under the third stone, on the right-hand side of the door. And it was well that I did so, for that night Vereker broke off suddenly, and Clive recog- nised the failing power of the wanaering eyes and lips. "Don't tell me any more," he said. gently. "I can imagine what happened—the Indian entered your room and tried to rob yoa of the diamonds!" Jasper Vereker nodded. "When he failed to discover them," he said, with sadden energy, "he struck me on the head. and must have stupefied me with some Indian drug, for [ can remember nothing more till to-day!" He lay back utterly exhausted on the pil- tows. and Clive Harley touched the electric bell at the side of the bed. and did not leave the room until both nurse and doctor were established in charge, when he went back to Joyce Vereker, for he was trembling very much, and he felt that he must satisfy him- self of the truth of that extraordinary story he had just heard before the night was much older. Joyce put on her hat and cloak and led the way into the dark, for they thought it better not to trust anyone else with that strange story. and when they unlocked the door of the ice-house, and let themselves in with pick-axe and lantern, it seemed to Clive at least as though he was assisting in a mid- night burglary. The weird pat-ches of shadow upon the dark, lichen-grown tloor-the drop of the water from the roof made the girl shiver, as Clive lifted his pick. "Suppose—it should not be there!" she breathed; but the third blow of the iron lifted the stone, and there lay the box of 3a.rved sandal-wood wrapped in a handker- chief undisturbed, as it had lain there for the last twenty years. By the light of the flickering lantern they looked at it together as it lay open in Clive's hands-with the mar- vellous diamonds winking at him from the jewellers' cotton. "This morning, said Clive Harley, breath- ing quickly: "I was too poor to buy bread to eat—and to-night I stand here beir to at least £ 60,000—and not only heir to that, but hair to every-,hiiig-love-a career-and hap- piness His voice was like a cry of triumph, and Joyce, looking at him with a tremulous ,mile. felt her eyes sink under the look in his, that was the germ of some warmer feeling that time might ripen to maturity Ll congenial soil. The sun hardly penetrated further than .he entry into Gaunt-street, that is one of .he worst of the remaining London slums, uid when young Clive Harley climbed up lie dirty stairs of the rookery that was his other's address, and found himself at the tocr of an attic under the tiles, his heart tank within him. The street, with the slat- ternly women at their doors, the filthy refuse in the gutter, made hit* heart sink, or what madness could have induced his ather to spend the declining days of his life n such a spot was difficult for him to magine. When he opened the door, the Jean bareness of the whitewashed attic truck him with a sense of chill. There was to furniture in it, save a. bed, a rug, and a Jiair, but from the wall the picture of his lead mother smiled down at him with her jweet eye-. On his knees, by the embers of a small charcoal fire, knelt a, thin elderly man who was cooking something in a small pan, and he lifted his head up as the door opened: "Ccme ill!" he said, "Whoever you are—and hut the door behind you, for I ftm-" But when he saw Clive, the irrita- tion of his voice broke in a cry: "Clive!" he (sa.'d, 'Clive! Dim memories D? hi" father's face surged back on the young man frvm the far a.way past, and ha stared at the gaunt, wasted features now tracing tho faint blurred like- uess to what be could remember. "Fa.ther!" he said, "What are you doing here IU this wretched place? then. as the sordid poverty of his sur- roundings brought the truth to him with a flash, his whole heart cried out: Oh, father —you have been starving yourself for me— eo that I should never know it!" Clive Harley the elder stood like a. con- victed criminal before his son. "Don't blame me, Clive," he said. hoarselv. "I invested nearly all my savings an diamonds in India- and they were lost. Then I sent all the remnant of my fortune to you, for I knew that there was not enough for both of us. and yours was the young life with the future before it-and I should only have been a drag upon you-I kept back what I calculated would allow me ten shillings a-week, till I died-but one cannot guard against illness, and my money slipped away too quickly; but I could not leave London, lad, for sometimes— I could see your face without your knowledge. But it will have to be the workhouse now, for there is not another shot left in the locker." He ended with an attempt at a laugh that turned to a sob. and Clive caught his chill hand and gripped it. "Father!" he cried, "Look up. father-all your wretched days are over—for the Rajah's diamonds are found, and I have brought them to jou, so that you are a rich man now!" And he laid the sandal-wood box in his father's arms. Past, present, and future met in the little house in Egris-streat that night, whither Clive had brought his father. And so out of the iarknees of despair there dawned a glorious norning, made brighter by the light that iIone from the unselfishness of a father's Vovotion. XHEENtt
A TOWN WITH A HUMP ————— HILL-CLIMBING AT CLYDACH VALE —————————— How I Caught the 1 Sleuths Napping. *Y THK MYSTERIOUS MR. RAFFLE3. I have heard of people getting what is termed in academic nomenclature the hump"; in fact, I occasionally find that-1 seraphic qua.lity adhering to my saintly :-If. but in Great Britain one seldom happens to strike a. town that suffers north, east, so.ith, and west with it. Under such circumstances—the scarcity of towns with the hump-I am entitled to appropriate big chunks of eelf-coig^atulation for locating a township yesterday that suffers perpetually in a low state oi high hump fever. Like a boarding-house bed. it is hump all over. Yea. it IS mountainous in the north, hiily in the centra and outb. and flat nowhere. Yet they have humorously and sarcastically christened it a vale--Cly- dach Vale.wheras the place is nothing but a natural protuberance covered all over with other protuberances that rob in sympathy with the parent one because no surgeon's knife can remove the swellings, humps, bumps, hillocks, and carbuncles that prove a barrier to outside traffic by tiain and tram. Hill-climbing is reputedly good for the lungs, hence the people who live in the valj that is also a hill or a series of hills should have no elongated doctors' biUs to pay in regard to pulmonary troubles. Previous to making a, friendly call on the Clydach Vale sleuths yesterday, I had my hair cut in order to expedite the scalping process. Scalped I had to be. scalped I must be. scalping I could not possibly escape if I dared to poke my proboscis in that district, said the local sleuths. Alas! But I coupled with a suitable hour a dis- guise that was the only one approaching the PlhnsoIlI mean Ramesmark of safety, and the combination brought to my girdle all the scalps in the neighbourhood. Not a Soul Evinced the slightest interest in me-nor did I think thia-t they would. They didn't see me. for I passed myself off as a.-whoa, Raffles! Back pedal. Dressed in ordinary everyday garb I would have lost my locks in five minutee, but what purpose did I go for other than to check- mate the wiles of you oonflde'nt sleuths of ¡. that locality? Like Mardy, the place is a cul de sac, a I veritable Raffles trap, but at a certain hour of the day the trap was left open, hence I II got in, secured the cheese—or scalps—and I left my kind regards by way of compliments. I couldn't make calls, without divulging a, secret worth keeping in relation to my dis- gtuise, hence I had to content myself with a stroll through the place, a patrol in search. o* incidents and adventure, of which I found neither. What is that? Ah, a boy in blue. Xot a man-o-war's man, but a member of the law and order fraternity. 'His ueek-or the neck of his coat-is adorned with the mystic figures, 539.

The Clydach Vale Hotel, then a repairer of shoes who knows how to set his little window off to advantage; another Evans, one who can sell you apples, and I come to Wern-street. Ahead there is—nothing. Yes, there is a bleali-looking hill, another pimple on the face of the earth, and one that I have no desire to make acquaintance with. Turn back, Raffles, you have come far enough. Go back and tell them all about it. How you climbed the hill that leads to nowhere, and scalped the whole town in doing it. No apologies, you Clydaoh sleuths, you were fairly caught tripping. Honestly, if you fail to pull it off to-night I will shame you on Monday by coming out as conspicuous as a rainbow, and then per- haps I'll be picked up by an infant in arms. Bring your "Express," a nice clean eye, the correct salutation, and a little of the stuff you think with-not much, for I aim wearing no facial disguise at all. Rest assured that there is one who will be glad to shake hands with his oaptor to-night, one who has had enough of it, one who will welcome a rest, and that one is Raffles' Postbag Jolnnny Walker.—Unless you trip over me before that hour, try to penetrate my incog- nito to-night.

For Women Folk. HOMELY HINTS AND DAINTY DISHES A piece of cooked bacon rind. with a margin of fat left on, placed in a canary's cage, is very beneficial for hoarseness. Baked apples are a. most wholesome dish for children, but their appearance is often spoilt through bursting. To prevent this take a sharp knife and slightly cut the peel in a circle in the centre of the apple, and when baked they will be found whole, which makes them look more appetising. To Clean Rustv Flat Irons I Beeswax and salt will make your rusty flat-irons as clean and smooth as glass. Tie a lump of wax in a rag; when the irons axe hot rub them first with the wax rag, then scour with a. paper or a, cloth sprinkled with salt. Cold Siaw Slaw is an American dish, and is eaten both hot and cold. The following recipe is for cold slaw:— arm a quarter of a pint of vinegar and Joz. butter in an enamelled pan. Shred one nice tender cabbage finely, reject- ing the stalk and outer leaves. Put it into the vinegar, sprinkle over it one tabLespoon- ful of flour, one tea?poonfnl of celery seed, and a good pinch of salt. Cock gently for a few minutes. Beat one egg lightly, add it I to the contents of the pan, stir, and cook for three or four minutes. Serve cold. To Dry Clothes -1 When the weather is wet and the drying 01 clothes outdoors is impossible, an easy way to overcome the difficulty is by the following means :In most houses nowadays the scullery usually contains a gas cooking stove; arrange several lines on which to hang the clothes, then light the oven of the gas cooking stove to heat the scullery; leave the soiille-ry window open one inch for the moisture to escape, then close the scullery door, and you will find that you will be able to dry your clothes very quickly, and at a I very low cost, the scullery making a splendid drying-room.
CARDIFF EMPIRE I After a most gratifying success in America and London, Miss Clarice llayne, to say nothing of That," her clever accompanist, will appear at Cardiff. Miss Mayne is a London girl, and is not yet 21. but, in addi- tion to her fascinating appearance, her verve and charm, she is an artiste, a fact which will be fully appreciated when she gives her famous song, I'm longing for someone to love me." Fred Edwards and company, in- oluding Miss Bertha Northam, will be seen in that amrusing farce, "Kleptomaniacs," and Frank and Jen Lat-on-a will give their delight- ful melange of songs and comedy. Another feature of the biU is the Four Regals in their sensational strong act. The Armourers," and the programme is further strengthened by the inclusion of the Mexican wonder. Frank Maura; the French Alpine vocalist, Henry Helme; Maud and Sydney Wood, duett ists and dancers; Minnie Mace, the dainty comedienne and dancer, &Dd a new series of pictures.

A young man who had just procured a posi- tion in a great business house appeared to think he was there to tell the rest of the staif how to run the business. "You seem to know a great deal, young man," said the manager. "Do I?" said the young man, his chest swelling with pride. "Ah, sir, some day I expect to wake up and find myself famous!" The manager opened a drawer in his desk and took cut a parcel. "Here you are, young man! Take this home with you, with my compliments!" "What is it. sir?" "An alarm-clock. It will help you to wake up!" Here is an amusing story told of the Irish Guards. One of a little parti in the canteen proposed that each should ask a question, and the first to ask a question that he could not answer himself was to pay for drinks for the party. All were agreeable, and the g-ame began. Pat's turn came, and he asked, "Why can a squirrel dig a hole in the ground and leave no dirt round the top?" All made a guess, but none were right. Pat told them that "it was because the squirrel began at the bottom." Everyone seemed satisfied but Mike. who asked, "But how does he get to the bottom?" "That's your question, Mike," said Pat, "not mine, and I think you'll have to pay!" And he did.
CINEMA THEATRE, CARDIFF I At the Eleotrio Theatre, Queen-street, on Friday afternoon the old folks from the workhouse were present, and also the veterans of the Indian Mutiny and Crimean Wars, at the invitation of Councillor Edward Nicholl. A special programme suitable for the occasion was arranged by the resident manager, Mr. W. Reynolds-Benjamin, and a most enjoyable afternoon was spent. Hearty cheers were afterwards given for Councillor Nicholl and others, at the oall of Sergeant-- major Flanagan (in charge of the men), and responded to by Quartermaster-sergeant Buck, 19th Hussars. The programme for Monday next is of exceptional merit, and introduces some of the latest pictures of the photographers art, including None But the Brave Deserve the Fair." The story runs in connection with a charming widow, who, after a few yeats of married life, can no longer bring herself to believe in men's protestations of devoted- ness. She has two suitors more than usually persistent, whose impassioned declarations she laughingly turns aside, until it occurs to her to put them to the tetrt. Both men have sworn to be ready to sacrifice their lives for her, so she :nvites them to run out with her by bicycle to her country villa, and when there proposes that the one who rides head first into an apparesntly solid will shall be favoured with her hand. The first man stops dead at the foot of the wall, and is greeted with a sarcastic smile for his pa.ins. The second suitor makes a bold dash for it, and to the disg-ust of bis rival breaks triumphantly through the wall, which is merely of paper.

I "HENRY OF NAVARRE." Next week playgoers will weloome. at- the New Theatre. Cardiff, Jaiss Julia Neileon and Mr. Fred Terry. who can assuredly consider themselves particular favourites with Cardiff audiences. Miss Neilson and Mr. Terry will presemt for the first time in Cardiff their latest and greatest success, Henry of Navarre," and they will be sup- ported by the entire company from the New Theatre, London. Henry of Navarre is a romantic play in four acts, written by William Devereux. It deals with the love episodes of Marguerite de Vatois and Henry of Navarre. The play opens with a scene at the Louvre. A murderous plot is under way to draw the Hugueaota to Paris on the ocoaaion of the in%rria4fd of Marguerite de Jalois and Benxy of Navarre, tbe proposed MISS JULIA NiEILSON, As "Marguerite de Valois." unio-n being variously interpreted, King Charles being a reluctant party, but oon- sciouci of the massacre inspired by Catherine de Medici There is a curious scene between Henry and Margot, when the affianced lovers meet for the first time siutoe childhood, and Henry, a. laughing suitor, convinces his betrothed, much to her surprise, that he really loves her, and she begins to realise that here is the man of whom she hae dreamed and for whom she has hoped. But at the moment of their dawning happiness there comes a suspicion to Henry -of the woman's complicity in the plot which is to rid France of the Huguenote for ever. With the second act, and the marriage a thing of the past, Henry, more in love with his wife than ever, has been kept apart from her through the ever-recurring suspicion that his wife's love is false, and that she is a parti- cipator in the plot for the massacre of the Huguenots. In the third act Henry surprises the D'uc de Guise in Margot's room, which leads up to a very fine stage situation. In the fourth act we find King Charles still withholding Lis consent to the massacre, but at. length the King gives way, and the order is that every Huguenot must die." Margot Sqves Henry by making him unconsciously wear the sign of the white cross. The play closes with the King's quick remorse as he realises the horror of the night's massacre, and Henry and Margot are at lost brought together in perfect love. In order to make the production as perfect as possible, Mise Julia Neileon and Mr. Fred Terry are bringing with them the whole of the original scenery, furniture, and electric effects, so that Henry of Navarre will be placed on the stage with the same oorrlblete- ness of detail and in exactly the same sur- roundings as assisted to make the play such a huge success at the New Theatre, London. There will be a matinee at Henry of Navarre on Saturday. December 11. at two.
LEFT AND RIGHT LIMBS The physiologists and scientists in general have been making some curious experiments with a view to determine the relative length and strength of "right" and left" limbs. Fifty and nine-tenths per cent. of tho-men measured had the right arm stronger than the left; 16.4 per cent. had the two arms of ectua 1 length and strength, and 32.7 per cent. had the left arm stronger than the right. Of women, 46.9 per cent, had the right arm stronger than the left, 24.5 per cent. had the left stronger than the right. In order to arrive at the average of length of limbs fifty. skeletons were measured, twenty-five of each sex. Of these twenty-three had the Tight arm and 1ft leg longer, six the left arm and right leg, while in seventeen cases all the members were more or less equal in length.

An Amazing Marriage ) CHARCE AGAINST BRIDECROOM FAILS I Extraordinary evidence regarding a ■registry office marriage was given at Bow- street yesterday when William English Ca.r- son, publishers' agent, was charged on remand with having inserted in a marriage register a false entry of a matter relating to a marriage between him and Margaret Anne Davis. Mr. James Appleton. superintendent regis- tra.r for the St. Giles' district, said that he received notice from the lady fixing a date for the wedding, but the event was several times postponed. On October 7 the defen- dant and the lady appeared at the office together, and witness noticed that the prisoner seamed to be in a very bad temper, and apparently had been drinking. Witness asked the lady if the prisoner was in a fit state to go through the marriage ceremony, and she replied, "Oh! quii-te. He is doing this on purpose." Witness suggested that the wedding should be postponed, but the lady implored him. with tears in her eyes. to allow the marriage to take place, adding, J "You do not know what this means to me." Get on with it" Witness turned to the prisoner and said, "Do you quite understand why you are here?" a.nd he replied, "Yes, to marry this thing." pointing to the lady. Wit.lle<"8 a"ked him further if he desired to marry the lady, and he said, -No, but if she insists, I have no objection. Get on with the marriage." Wit- ness then married them. When it came to the time for the prisoner to produce the ring he partly placed it on the lady's finger, and then tried to snatch it away from her. After the ceremony tila prisoner wrote in the register what epneared to be "John Jones." He had previously given the name of William English Carson. Mrs. Frances Foster, wife of a messenger at the registrar's office, said that the lady, after imploring the registrar to perform the ceremony, turned to witness and said, "I cannot go home to my father unless I am married and take home my marriage cer- tificate. Mr. Joseph (defending) said that fhe pri- soner was undoubtedly drunk at the time of the ceremony, and tha,t being so it could not he held that he had" knowingly" made a false entry. There was no foundation for the allegation that defendant had intended going to America to escape the charge. The Magist rate said he was aure that any jury after hearing this case would xettlirl, a verdict of "Not guilty," and the prisoner would be discharged. The decision was received with applause.
LADY'S SUICIDE IN BED At Paddington yesterday an inquiry was held concerning the tragic death of Evelyn Banbury Mignon, a young married woman, who committed suicide by shooting herself with a revolver at her fiat in Lauderdale Mansions, Maida Vale. Franklin Alfred Charles Miignon, the husband, a, Government clerk, identified the body as that of his wife, who was 24 yea.rs of age. He had not seen her for four months. He knew that she was accustomed to carrying a revolver, for she had formerly lived in Central Africa; but she had never threatened her life. e- oeased's maid said that her mistress had at t,im-es been depressed, and she seemed to be worried during last week. On Sunday even- ing, shortly before ten o'clock, the deceased told wit-ness that she was feeling very tired. She was then in bed, and witness was stand- ing at the foot of the bed reading a letter which the deceased had given her. Suddenly there was a report, and, looking up, witness saw a spurt of flame. The deceased, who had a revolver in her hand, said, "Oh, my God. I'm shot." Witness asked, "Why did you do it?'' and she replied, "I didn't, Alice. It was an accident." The jury returned a verdict of "Suicide," not wishing to express an opinion as to the state of the lady's mind.
STOLL'S PANOPTICON "A Russian Girl's Heroism is the title of the chief feature at Stoll's Oairdiff Panopticon next week. and it constitutes one of the finest film stories yet produced. True poesy emuts in the legend, and it will be greatly appreciated. Another big attraction ia "The Bunch of Violets." It develops from a "child courtship, but the girl in later yea-rs falls 4 prey to flattering wiles, and goes off with another. A fellow-workman of the young ma.n. however, overhears the address given to the chauffeur, and so the lover is enabled to quickly follow. He discovers the pair at a riverside hotel, and with the aid of the faded bundh of violets, which formed the love token, he is able to reclaim his sweetheart. "The Gentleman Bandit" pro- vides a wealth of excitement and humour. It is founded on a play now being staged at a London theatre. Great Expectations from Uncle" is a most laughable concoction, the denouement being especially good. On the historic side, The Man of Destiny is taken from stirring incidents in the life of Napoleon. There are many other attrac- tions, humorous end dramatic. Vocal items will be given by Mr. Fred Dyer and Mr. James Hope, who pays a. welcome return visit, whilst Master Horace Webb, an exceedingly able violinist, has been especially engaged. Miss Hetty Hocking will provide the musical accom- paniments.
THUS SETTLED I A curious old marriage custom, called locally "the settling," still survives in cer- tain parts of Ireland and in some Scottish districts. After the marriage has been ipublicly announced the friends of the couple meet at the house of the bride's parents to fix a suitable day for the marriage. A bottle of whisky is opened, and as each guest drinks to their happiness he names a date. When everyone has chosen a. time an average is struck and "Settling" is complete. Neither the bride nor bridegroom ever thinks of protesting ag-airist the date so curiously chosen.
LONG-LIVED PEOPLE I Extraordinary examples of longevity are to be found among the inhabitants of the village of Over. Of the population of 860 there are at present living in the parish 76 persons who are over 70 years of age. Among them are one nonagenarian and 21 octo- genarians, the aggregate age of the 22 per- sons making a total of 1,839 years, or an average of just over 83i years. In an adjodn- ing parish are lying ill two natives of Over, one 87 and the other 83, who lived in the pea-ish all thear lives until recently.
BRIERLEY MEN IN CHERRY PIT Among the young men who a few rears ago went to America to better themselves, were two sons (Edward and Arthur) of Mrs. Charles Mills, widow, of Brierley, and they were unfortunately employed at the Oherry Pit, Illinois, where the recent sad calamity occurred; and, although several have been rescued, news has reached the Mills family tha.t these two sons are among the dead. They were both married, and the sympathy of this entire neighbourhood has gone out to the bereaved brothers and sisters, and widowed mother, a family well-known and respected.
RED TAPE AND THE CANE I Instructions have been issued by the Wil- leaden Education Committee that any assistant teacher before caning a boy is to obtain from the headmaster the schools' soli- tary cane and the punishment book, and to enter details Of the offence and punishment. After the infliction the book is to be signed (whether by the master or the boy is not stated) and returned, with the cane, to the headmaster.

Shaving to Prevent Colds ♦ MOUSTACHES HARBOUR ORGANISMS A frequent correspondent writes to us isa.ys the "Lancet") that lie has 'noticed that clean-shaven persons appear to enjoy a kind of immunity from the common cold, "at all events," he Hays, "they seem to be attacked less frequently than those who cultivate the moustache." He suggests that the daily shaving may prove an antiseptic process which regularly removes pathogenic organisms which other- wise -urk and grow in the moustache. It is, of course, conceivable that the mous- tache affords a nursery for organisms, especially as it must be moist, and occupies a position close to the breathing intake. further, it is reasonable enough to assume that the daily shave does, as a matter of fact, amount to a regular antiseptic routine. The moustache is obviously difficult to tfean thoroughly, and it is open to doubt whether mere wa.shing completely sterilises it. Even if tha.t should ive the case, the moustache would soon be full of organisms again, as it is constantly exposed to a stream of air which is rarely sterile. According to our correspondent's view, however, there should be a similar immunity enjoyed by women, unless we ia. stress on fact that no method in their toilet amounts to the drastic cleansing process of the razor and soap. Moreover, fine downy hair is natural to the lip of women and children. The observation is an interesting one, and its author sends some confirmation of his view in the shape of details of cases in which the subjects, while regular sufferers rom common cold when they wore a. mous- tache, seem to have enjoyed a comparative immunity since they have shaved clean.
NEWPORT EMPIRE A good all-round programme has been secured for Newport. Lainberti, who shares the top of the bill with Maidie Scott, is the brilliant musical impersonator who has been suoh a great success at the London Hippodrome, and who hails from Cardiff. He is an accomplished musician, as clever with the violin as he is at the pianoforte, and, in addition to his skill as an executant, he possesses a marked capacity for original composition. His turn includes impersona- tions of Gounod, Lizst, Joachim, and Pader- ewski. His study of Lizst, in which he plays Eubenstein's melody in F, is a masterly per- formance. Miss Maidie Scott, the charming comedienne, will render in her own delight- ful manner, "The Leader of Society" and Everybody Works but Father." Ernie Mayne, "the simple one," and La Freya, in her original artistic visions, are featured. Other artistes secured to make up a strong bill include The Kirbys, two quaint bur- lesque artistes; Barrett and Knowles, "The Green Lizard and His Friend"; and the Sisters Allen, duettists and dancers.

Billiards. PROBLEMS.—No. 9. By JOHN ROBERTS. Our ninth prob- lem presents the cue-ball 3J inches from the top cushion, a.nd the object white 31 inches from it. The red ball is e x a, c tly behind the billiard spot and nearly touching the top cushion. What is the correct stroke to play ? The a.nswer to this prohlem will appear when our next is pub- lished. Solution of Problem No. 8 The solution of our eighth prob- lem is an ex- tremely interest- ilig stroke, not newly &o diffi- cult as it may appear at first Fight. As the diar gram shows, the correct stroke to essay is a kiss cannon off the white, played in the following niann,er: Place the cue ball on the left hand spot of the D and strike it just above its centre, at the same time imparting left- ha/nd side. Hit the object bail t h r e e q ua rte-r full, and quite smartly, when it will travel round the table, as in- dicated by the do tted line in the diagram, while the cue-ball will make the cannon, and the balls should be well left.

ROLLER SKATING IN CARDIFF Last winter nearly a million people visited the Orawford-Wilkins skating rink at Olym- pia in the season of thirteen weeks, and with the rapid growth, of the healthy pas- time it would be interesting to know just how many persons have paid for admission to the numerous skating- palaces possessed by the syndicate, among which is the costly budidang in Westgate-street, Cardiff. Mr. OUis, the Cardiff manager, and his deputy, Mr. Norton, are to be congratulated upon tljeir successful efforts in making the place a touroe of real enjoyment The Central Skating Rink on The Hayee, Cardiff, is daily the rendezvous cf a large number of ladies and gentlemen who reyel in triok skating and graeful moves amidst the pleasant surroundings, and to the inspiriting strains of a full military band. The building has been erected to give com- fort, and it is small wonder, therefore, that the place is so well patronised. Strict atten- tion is paid to rink etiquette, and, learners pick up the movements rapidly under the obliging tuition of the band of instructors.
