MR. T. HOWARD MORGAN, CAPTAIN OF THE CADOXTON AND BARRY FOOTBALL CLUB. BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH. Perhaps no one is more justly entitled to the grateful indebtedness of a large section of the public than the subject of our present sketch for the active part he has displayed, during the past five or six years, in the pro- motion of healthful sport of all kinds in this district. Mr Howard Morgan came to Cadox- ton at a period in the history of the place when recreative sports and pastimes were at a s very low ebb indeed, if not comparatively un- known, and when we consider the insignifi- cant amount of interest taken therein by the general public (if we bear in mind the purely nominal financial support which has been forthcoming hitherto) it is quite surprising with what amount of conspicuous success the efforts of the few have been attended, and should certainly stimulate them to further achievements in the future, consonant with the marvellous populative development of the thriving community which has sprung up around Barry Dock. Mr T. Howard Morgan was born on the 11th of October, 1864, his parents tht n living in Oxford- street, Swansea. He was primarily educated at St. Andrew's College, Swansea, previous to en- tering which he resided temporarily at Haverford- west. When very young he developed a manifest taste for athletics, and playing football at an early age he soon displayed a form for" scudding the leather" that was decidedly promising. The first recognised team he was identified with was that of the Swansea Rovers, and at the age of fifteen he was a somewhat popular player, so much so really that in the second year of his connection with this club he was elected captain, a position which he occupied with credit for some time. We might here observe parenthetically that during Mr Morgan's captaincy of the Swansea Rovers, he played more than once against another local team, of which our active and unassuming young friend, Mr Fred. Boys, was a member. Mr Boys has played hand in hand with Mr Morgan ever since, and is now vice-captain of the Cadox- ton and Barry Football Club, and was last year captain of the second eleven section of the Cadox- ton Cricket Club. Mr Morgan has, during his career as a footballer, played with and against such expert men as Bishop, of Swansea Tom Harries, of Swansea and Neath R. Garrett, the celebrated Penarth international; and Wr. H. Howell, the Swansea international, and when he played with his team against Dick Garrett and his victorious crew from Penarth on the Witchill Grounds this season, his activity was recognised by our experienced football critic, "Red Rose," in flattering terms. After stating that Mr Morgan frequently distinguished himself by smart play, Red Rose remarked:—"At half, Morgan was streets ahead of his mate. Several times he got the ball from the scrum, and made good use of it, and more than once he spoiled Rowles just as he was getting dangerous. "Free Lance," in the Western Mail, also referred in complimentary terms to Mr Morgan when he assumed identity with the Cadoxton Club three or four years ago, remarking that Tom Harries, one of the shining lights of the Neath Club, and Howard Morgan, long prominently associated with the Swariaea Club, had started a creditable organisation of the same description at Cadoxton. <:> In 1883 Mr Morgan went to London, and discontinued his connection with football during his two years' residence thereat. Returning to Wales in 1885, in October of the same year the subject of our sketch, together with his brother, Mr A. W. Morgan (who also takes a warm interest in athletics and other sport) came to Cadoxton, and started business, in which they have been so successful that Mr Howard Morgan fears he will not be able again to assume the captaincy of the football club, and it is in view of this fact that we this week publish his biography, as of one who has done much to en- hance the interests of sport in this district. The first cricket club at Cadoxton was formed in 1885, with Dr O'Donnell as captain, and Mr Howard Morgan as vice-captain, but the former gentleman resigning his position in the following year, the latter was unanimously selected to fill the vacancy, and he was succeeded, on relinquishing the position in 1887, by Mr W. Bushell. In 1887 the Cadoxton Football Club was formed, with Mr Morgan as captain, the ground on which the mem- bers played being at Palmerstown, and in such a popular and efficient manner did Mr Morgan dis- charge his duties as captain that he has been unanimously re-elected every year since. He plays a very good active game, and on our part we must acknowledge our indebtedness to him for the readiness with which he has at all times supplied us with information sought for on football, cricket, and other sporting matters. He is popular with his team, amongst the members of which the announcement of his probable retire- ment will be received with regret. His principal fellow-players in the Cadoxton Club have been Messrs A. Garnett (the expert Association player), George Waters, Albert Waters, Harry Waters, W. Williams, R. G. Morris, Dr O'Donnell, Fred. Boys, R. H. Taylor (who lately left the neighbour- hood for the Manchester Canal Works), A. W. Morgan (the secretary of the club), J. Millward, nnrl r»t,hprs _v. It may possibly be advanced by some that the record hitherto of the Cadoxton Football Club has not been a particularly bright one, but when the rough untrimmed character of the district during the past few years is taken into consideration, together with the migratory nature of the population, and the niggardly smallness of the support and encouragement the club has received hitherto at the hands of the general public, we justly think that the efforts of the club to make for itself a name in the annals of football has been very creditable indeed, and now that both the football and cricket clubs have been fairly estab- lished in our midst, it remains for the next season or two to show the glitter of the metal of which the members are undoubtedly composed, and Mr Morgan and his friends may feel assured that their efforts to establish good sound sporting institutions in the district have certainly not been unattended with success. Mr Howard Morgan is now in his 26th year, and it is not unreasonable, notwithstanding the in- roads which matrimonial and business experiences are making upon his time and attention, that he may yet find occasional leisure to devote his services particularly to his popular pastime of football.
IVORITES ANNIVERSARY AT WENVOE. The annual festival of the members of the local Lodge of True Ivorites took place at Wenvoe on Mon- day afternoon last. A procession, headed by the Cadoxton Brass Band, paraded the village, and the members afterwards dined together at the Wenvce Arms Hotel, the Vicar, the Rev G. H. Jenner, pre- siding. A capital dinner was prepared for the occa- sion by the respected host, Mr Noah Jenkins.
SUICIDE OF A WOMAN NEAR BRIDGEND. On Sunday morning last Catherine Thomas, a single woman, 24 years of age, residing with her girents at Hedgnynwydd, St. Bride's Major, near ridgend, was discovered by her father shortly before eight o'clock to have hanged herself in her bedroom, and to be quite dead. The suicide had been an in- mate of the county asylum for twelve months, and was discharged about a year ago. She is reported to have been suffering in health for the last three or four weeks, and was under medical care.
ANOTHER POPULAR DIVINE AT EAST BARRY. The Rev F. H. Stead, M.A., brother of Mr W. T. Stead, the well-known editor of the Review of Reviewx, seems to be much sought after down here. Recently he was at Wood and Star-street Chapels, and is engaged at East Barry next Sun- day, in connection with the series of opening services of the new English Congregational Chapel thereat.-Argits
PROSECUTION OF NON-VACC1- NATORS. A SCARE FOR MR. GARNETT AND I MR. SPICKETT.

No one in Wales has been imprisoned in the same period, but in England 115 have been sent to gaol. The 75 con- victions in Wales are made up as follow :—Anglesey, 4Breconshire, 6; Cardiganshire, 3; Carmarthen- shire, 2 Carnarvonshire, 2 Flintshire, 2 Glamor- ganshire, 6 Cardiff borough, 32 Merionethshire, 2 Montgomeryshire, 2 Pembrokeshire, 10 and Rad- norshire, 4. In Monmouthshire 11 have been fined, and in Newport borough, 9.
CADOXTON & MERTHYR DOYAN SCHOOL BOARD. FORTNIGHTLY MEETING AT EAST BARRY. The ordinal y meeting of the above Board was held on Tuesday afternoon last, at the Board School, East Barry, when there were present:— Mr J. Lowdon (in the chair), Captain Davies, Rev J. Price, Mr Oliver Jenkins, Mr E. F. Blackmore, and Mr W. H. Lewis (clerk). The minutes of the previous meeting were read and signed by the Chairman. 11 MISCELLANEOUS. Rev J. Price said the time had come when the Board should devote more time to the considera- tion of accounts, and not as heretofore at the close of a long meeting, when they were hurried through without due consideration. The question of accounts should occupy a place on the agenda. At the suggestion of the Chairman, it was resolved that at every alternate meeting of the Board the question of accounts should be taken immedi- atiately after the attendance officer's report. -Cap- tain Davies intimated that enquiries had been made, and Mrs Mooney was prepared to apologise to the Board for having assaulted one of the teachers at Barry Dock Town School. He also reported that the teacher (Mr D. Richards) intended send- ing in his resignation, as he intended becoming a candidate for the ministry. Mr Blackmore reported that the school attend- ance committee had selected eleven of the most flagrant cases of non-attendance at Barry Dock Town, and they had been carefully enquired into, the school teachers being asked to watch the future attendances of these children, and report to the Board. The committee also suggested that the attendance officer should take Barry and Cad- oxton every alternate week, so that the work might be more thoroughly done. Dr O'Donnell stated that the school at Barry Dock Town had been closed during the whole of Whit-week owing to the extreme smallness of the attendance on Tuesday and Wednesday. This course was decided upon by the teachers, after consulting Mr Jenkins and himself, in order that the defective attendances should not affect the average for the year. Mr Blackmore said the question of holidays for the year should be taken into consideration at an early future meeting.*—Rev J. Price agreed. The reports of the school attendance officer (Mr D. Griffiths) were examined. Miss Hood, mistress of the infant school at East Barry, applied for the addition of an assistant teacher to her staff. At present there were only two pupil teachers in that department, whereas th^ average attendance during the past month was 150, and the teaching staff available was only for 120.—On the motion of Mr Blackmore, seconded by Mr Jenkins, it was resolved that a female pupil teacher be obtained at a salary of J655 a year. On the motion of Dr O'Donnell, seconded by the Rev J. Price, it was resolved that an additional museum cup-board be obtained for the infants' school at East Barry. At the suggestion of Mr Blackmore, it was decided that the deputy .clerk (Mr R. Treharne Rees) be asked to attend the meetings of the school management committee in future. The Clerk remarked that he had been unable to obtain the new rateable value for Cadoxton parish, as it had not yet been received by the assistant overseer. That of Merthyr Dovan, however, arrived the previous evening, and stood at J318,598 15s, as against JB9,565 5s for the last half-year.— The Chairman said the rateable value of Cadoxton would be about J340,000, so that they could determine upon issuing a precept that day.—Mr Jenkins urged that they could not fix the pro- portion for each parish until theSateable value of Cadoxton had been published.—Captain Davies concurred with Mr Jenkins.—In reply to Mr Blackmore, the Chairman said the amount of the Board's estimate for the ensuing half-year was JB745 Is 8d.—It was agreed, on the motion of the Chairman, seconded by Mr Blackmore, that a pre- cept for JB740 be issued upon the joint parishes, the Clerk to ascertain from Mr Harris, the clerk to the Union, the amount of the new rateable value of Cadoxton parish. Half of the amount of the precept was made payable in a month, Dr O'Donnell and Mr Jenkins being authorised to affix the Board's seal to the precept. Mr D. Richards, assistant master at the Barry Dock Town School, sent in his resignation, to take effect at the breaking up of the school for the summer holidays. A feeling was expressed that the school teachers employed by the Board were very inade- quately paid. The price of labour had gone up considerably lately, and it was time they should take the question of the trachers' renumeration into consideration.—It was resolved that the matter of a definite scale of salaries be placed on the agenda for consideration at the next meeting, Mr Blackmore observing that they expected good results from the schools, and they should pay their teachers good salaries, but in Wales school boards had a reputation for paying very low salaries.— The Clerk was ordered to ascertain tariffs of salaries paid bv other boards in South Wains. A copy of memorial was read from the Abet- dare School Board praying the Education Depart- ment to fix a centre in South Wales for the examination of pupil teachers and candidates for Queen's sholarships, and the Clerk was asked to enquire what the Cardiff Board had done in the matter, the memorial in the meantime to stand in abeyance till the next meeting. Mr J. H. Edwards, assistant master at the Barry Dock Town School, applied for an increase of salary, and remarked, amid laughter, that it was unfortunate that the late Board went out of office before they had time to decide his previous application for the increase asked for. -The matter was deferred until the next meeting. The school teachers' salaries were ordered to be paid, those for Cadoxton amounting to £45 17s 2d, and East Barry, 939 19s 2d. It was agreed that in future the school teachers should send in their stock books with requisi- tions for goods. THE BOARD AND THE ARCHITECT.—STRONG RE- MARKS BY MR BLACKMORE. The Chairman proceeded to explain the circumstances in which the Board had dealt with .the bill of JB146 14s sent in by Mr George Thomas, the Board's architect, for preparing plans of the proposed enlargement of Barry Dock Town School, and asked the representatives of the press present not to give publicity to the same. He (Mr Lowdon) went on to explain that out of the amount named there was a sum of JB11 11s charged as out-of-pocket expenses. In order to meet the wishes of the Board as much as possible Mr Thomas expressed his willingness to reduce his bill to JB100 nett, together with the JB11 11s ex- penses referred to, and to further reduce the bill to £50 if his firm were appointed permanent architects to the Board at a salary of £5 per annum, and a considerably reduced rate of remu- neration as compared with the per centage they at present received by their services to the Board.— At the close of the Chairman's observations, Dr O'Donnell asked whether it was necessary that the Board's discussion should be kept private. It was a public matter, and he thought the entire circumstances should be brought beforethe public. -Mr BIackmore Mr Thomas is a public servant, and we are dealing with the public money, and I agree that the discussion should be made public. -Mr Oliver Jenkins We are in Mr George Thomas' hands, but he ought to make a greater reduction in his accounts than he has done.—Cap- tain Davies was also of opinion that the discussion should be published. They had no option but to pay the bill, but the matter of future arrange- ments with the architect, of course, was in their hands.—Mr Jenkins But we must not tie our hands with Mr TI omas.— Captain Davies No, certainly not.—Dr O'Donnell I understand, if Mr Thomas is a^j ointiTd architect, he will accept j350 in settlement of his account, or even less.—Mr Jenkins and the Chairman: Yes.—The Chairman, having explained a conversation which Captain Davies and Lin,.self had had with Dr Neale and Mr E. D. Jones, two members of the late Board, in the matter, expressed the opinion that in the absence of a definite arrangement with Mr Thomas as regards terms, he had a right to charge fees according to the regular scale of the pro- fession.—Mr Blackmore The whole thing conse- quently comes to this-Mr Thomas offers L50 to the Board as a bribe for the appointment of architect.—Mr Jenkins remarked that inasmuch as Mr Thomas was always present at the Board, verbal instructions were given to him to do the work and not written instructions.—The < Chairman That accounts for no record appearing. on the minute or letter books.—Mr Jenkins: Yes. -The Chairman: But we must pay we have no alternative in the matter.—Mr Jenkins No.— Dr O'Donnell Mr Thomas will entertain nothing less than JBlOO and expenses in settlement of his bill. —Mr Blackmore Or give him the position of architect.—Mr Jenkins But we are not bound to Mr Thomas in any way in connection with the proposed new school at Holton.—The Chairman What is our position towards Mr Thomas in that matter ?—Mr Jenkins Only te prepare plans and bill of quantities. We have made no arrangement as to supervision of work.-Dr O'Donnell, after one or two further remarks, proposed that the sum of £100 and JB11 11s expenses be paid to Mr Thomas in settlement of his bill, adding that he made the proposition simply because Mr Thomas had said he would not take less.—Captain Davies seconded.Rev J. Price: It would be much easier to pass the bill if Mr Thomas had not said he would take less.—Mr Blackmore Yes, but Mr Thomas himself will have to bear the brunt and discredit of the whole thing. We cannot help it. -The motion was then agreed to unanimously, Captain Davies remarking that they could adver- bise for an architect when they wanted one. I This concluded the business.
PICKPOCKETS AT WENVOE SPORTS. ADJOURNED HEARING OF THE CASE AT PENARTH. PRISONERS AGAIN REMANDED FOR A WEEK. At Penarth Police Court, on Monday last (before Mr J. S. Corbett, chairman, and Mr Valentine Trayes), Thomas Smith, a young man of respectable appearance, was charged on remand with stealing a silver watch, value jE5, the property of William Coles, a labourer, of Wenvoe, on the 28th ultimo. The evi- dence of the prosecutor, as published in the BARny DOCK NEWS last week, was read over, and Mary Coles, prosecutor's wife, said she was present with her husband at Wenvoe Sports on the prwious Wednes- day, and was standing behind her husband near the ropes, watching a race, when she saw the prisoner suddenly strike her husband on the face with one hand, and snap his watch chain and steal the watch with the other. She at once raised an alarm, and prisoner made off, but was immediately pursued by the police and others, and he was soon afterwards apprehended by the police after a sharp chase.—John Sylvanus Evans, grocer's assistant, Penarth, said he was at Wenvoe Sports on the date named, and saw prisoner running away about half-past four or five o'clock. He saw the prisoner drop a silver watch, and he (witness) picked it up and handed it over to Police-constable Ben. Davies at the police station.- Police-eomrtable Ben. Davies, stationed at Barry Dock Town, gave corroborative evidence, and said prisoner was very violent as he was being taken to the police station, and struggled hard to get off.-Prisoner pleaded guilty, and hoped the Bench would be lenient with him, as he had never been in prison before. He also said he was severely abused by the police when they took him to the police station, and was struck on the head with a stick.-Sentence was deferred for a week. ANOTHER CASE. The prisoner in the last case, with John Thomas Roe, were then charged with conspiring together to steal a silver watch, belonging to Charles Lane, 65, Glamorgan-terrace, Canton, Cardiff, at the Wenvoe Arms, Wenvoe, on the same date.—The case was again adjourned for a week so that further inquiries might be made as to the prisoners by the police.
SERIOUS CASE OF BURNING AT BARRY DOCK TOWN. A YOUNG WOMAN SEVERELY INJURED. About seven o'clock on Saturday morning last a girl named Elizabeth Siowers, aged tifteen, a servant in the employ of Mr T. Ewbank, schoolmaster, Barry Dock Town, received injuries of a somewhat serious character. The unfortunate girl had lit the fire in her master's kitchen, and was engaged cleaning the grate when her apron caught fire, and in a moment she was all ablaze. The terrified girl ran out to the back of the house and screamed for assistance. Mr Ewbank, her master, who was in bed at the time, heard her cries, and at once rushed down stairs and found the girl in a mass of flames out in the yaid, and prostrate with fright. He pulled off her burning apron, threw it away, and wrapped her clothes tightly round her body, so as to extinguish the fire, but his efforts were not attended with success until he had enveloped her in a sack and carpet, and, with the assistance of a Mrs Booker, the injured girl was brought back to the house. Mr Ewbank then ran for medical assistance, and Dr Treharne arrived in the course of a few minutes, and found the girl had sustained painful in- juries to her right side and the lower part of her body. The injuries were duly attended to, and the girl's mother (who lives at Gilbert, Dinas Powis) sent for, and the young sufferer was conveyed to her home in the course of the afternoon, where she is now under careful treatment towards recovery.
PENARTH POLICE COURT. MONDAY.—Before Mr J. S. Corbett (in the chair), and Mr Valentine Trayes. ARREARS OF RATES.—Christopher Howe, rate col- lector, Barry Dock Town, summoned William Day, Barry Dock Town, for 13s 4d, arrears of general dis- trict rate. Case settled out of court. LICENSING.—James Greatrex, landlord of the Cross Keys, Dinas Powis, and Henry Hadley, Three Horse Shoes, also of Dinas Powis, applied for an extension of an hour on the occasion of an Oddfellows' annual dinner at the Cross Keys on Monday next. Hadley thought he might as well kave an extension as Mr Greatrex. The application in the first instance was granted, but in the latter it was refused. SWEARING IN OF A NEW CONSTABLE.—Mr Frank Rudolph Schlegelmilch, a German by birth, was sworn in as constable for the County of Glamorgan, and will be stationed at Penarth. TRAVELLING WITHOUT A TICKET ON THE BARRY RAILWAY.—Henry Jenks, labourer, Courtenay-road, Barry Dock Town, was summoned by the Barry Dock and Railways Company, for travelling on the Barry Railway, between Barry and Cadoxton, without a ticket.—Mr J. J. Handcock (Messrs Downing and Handcock, solicitors, Cardiff), appeared to prosecute, and P.C. Boland proved service of summons. Defen- dant did not appear.-Richard Henry Jenkins, a porter.in the employ of the company at Cadoxton Station, said on the 19th ultimo defendant was travel- ling by the 1.55 p.m. train to Cadoxton, at which station he was asked for his ticket, which he refused to give up. He then grew very violent, and attempted to leap over the i railings, but was pulled back by witness, and detained till the arrival of the police, when he gave several wrong names and addresses.- Defendant did not appear, and on the application of Mr Handcock a warrant was issued for his apprehen- sion. A VERY BAD CASE.—Dennis Sullivan, Salop-place, Penarth, was charged with setting his chimney on fire. P.C. C. H. Thomas said it was a very bad case, for defendant, in a drunken state, had thrown a paraffin lamp on the fire.-The Bench said the man might have put the whole street on fire.-Fined 10s and costs, or seven days' hard labour.—Defendant said he would go to gaol rather than pay. FURIOUS DRIVING.—William Stephens was sum- moned for furiously driving a horse and cart in Stan- well-road, Penarth, on the 24th ultimo.—P.C. David Francis proved the case.—Fined 10s, including costs, or seven days. DRUNKENNESS.—William Every, Penarth, was fined 5s, or three days, for being drunk at Penarth on Sun- day, the 25th ultimo. P.C. D. Francis proved the case. The man was described as having been drink- ing in the Albert Club on the occasion. ASSAULTING HIS "LAWFUL WIFrl,. "-Dennis Sulli- van, labourer, Penarth, the defendant in a previous case, was then charged by his wife, Elizabeth Sullivan, with an assault. Mr Sullivan said she was the law- ful wife of the defendant, and on the 24th ultimo her husband insulted her in Cardiff, and threatened to take her life. He also threw her basket of goods out into the street, and made use of language which was unfit to be heard in court. She had shielded him many times, but she would not shield him again.— The Magistrates' Clerk (Mr Morris) pointed out that the case was one of assault, and not of using insult- ing language.-The Bench dismissed the case, but in- formed the defendant that if he was summoned before the court again on a similar charge he would be bound over to keep the peace, or punished in some way. A SUSPICIOUS CHARACTER AT BARRY DOCK TOWN. -Jack Shepherd, a poorly and quaintly clad indivi- dual, who described himself as a vendor of water cresses and living in Bute-street, Cardiff, was brought up in custody charged on suspicion with stealing a fowl. P.C. Stephen Davies said at about six o'clock on Saturday morning lie saw the prisoner in Weston- road, Barry Dock Town, carrying a bag and a basket. He questioned him, and found the basket contained flowers and the bag a fowl, which had only recently been killed, and was quite warm. Prisoner said he bought the fowl of a hawker, at Bridgend, and had walked from Llantwit Major that morning.—Mr Superintendent Wake applied for an adjournment for a week, so that enquiries might be made as to pri- soner's antecedents.—Application granted.
THE DISGRACEFUL POLICE AFFRAY AT COWBRIDGE. The magisterial inquiry into the charge preferred against Wllliam Evans, until recently a member of the Glamorganshire constabulary, for maliciously assault- ing Sergeant Martin, of Cowbridge, was resumed on Thursday week last, at the Town Hall, Cowbridge. The case for the prosecution was gone into the previous week, and one witness was on that occasion heard for the defence. An adjournment then took place for a week. The particulars of the case have already been reported in the BARRY DOCK NEWS. The sitting magistrates on Thursday were the Mayor (Alderman W. A. James), Sir J. E. Spearman, Bart. Alderman T. Rees, Mr D. Owen, and Mr D. H. Davies.—For the prosecution Mr S. H. Stockwood solicitor, Bridgend, appeared, and Mr T. J. Hughes' of the same town, defended.-The interest felt in the case was unabated, and the court was thronged. Sergeant Martin appeared in private clothes, and wore a protection over his eyelid.-Further evidence having been taken, the Mayor said the Bench had decided there was a "prima facie" case; and they committed the accused to the assizes on the graver charge of wilful and malicious assault. Ban was accepted; Evans in the sum of £100, and two sureties -Mr John Thomas, tailor, of Cowbridge, and Mr Kibblewhite, of the Bush Inn, Cowbridge-in E-50 each.
THE BARRY DOCK COMPANY AND THEIR CONTRACTOR. The claim by the executors of the late Mr T. A. Walker, contractor of Barry Dock, against the com- pany will probably amount to £150,000. Under the provisions of the contract Mr J. Wolfe Barry, the company's engineer, is to be arbitrator in the event of the claim being pursued. No presentation of the made to the Barry Company.— We are now in a position to state that for some time the executors of the late Mr T. A. Walker—who died in November last-have been actively engaged in preparing the items of their claim against the Barry Company, and several days ago a party of engineers, including one gentleman who has been knighted in lecognition of his services, and Mr Fletcher Moulton, Q.C., one of the most eminent scientific barristers of the day, visited the dock and railways, with the object of preparing evidence in support of Mr Walker's demand. The result of their investigations shovved that the dock was nearly one-third larger than originally contracted for, and there was also a large number of other extras not named in the specifica- tions. We understand that the claim, which it is authoritavely stated considerably exceeds £100,000, will shortly be lodged with the solicitors of the com- pany.—"W.M."

I suffered for three yean from Indigestion and Palpitation of the Heart. I am engaged in a mill, six stories high, and as my work is on the top floor, I have to ascend five flights of steps. I used to he so exhausted when I reached the top that I could scarcely speak. About last Christinas my father bought a 2L 9d. bottle of OWILTM EVANS' Quiimra Brrms; after taking that bottle I felt so much better that he bought another, since taking which I can aaoend the steps to my work with ease, and Ifeel none of the pains in my side that I formerly had.

Dear Sir,—I thank you kindly for the pills you sent me, which have been a great help to me; and the effect of the QUININE BITTKBS has been wonderful; they have done me more good than all the doctors. I was under the care of seven doctors In the infirmary last year, but in the end was worse than when I commenced. But I feel sure, that if I can continue to obtain GWILTK EVAYS' QUININ* BIT- TERS a little longer. I shall soon be able to work. They are clearing the liver, and I can eat almost anything at times. I have recommended it to a lady who suffers as I did, and she is already feeling better. Toon gratefully, W. PXABC*. Belle Vue, Wordsley, near Stourbridge, Feb. 25th, 1689.

SEQUEL TO A LATE FIRE AT BARRY DOCK TOWN. THE VALUE OF A SERVANT'S CLOTHES. At Cardiff County-court on Wednesday (before his Honour Judge Owen) a servant girl named Margaret Davies sued Mr W. H. Price, boot maker, of Barry- road, Barry Dock Town, for S2 7s 7d, the value of her clothes, which were destroyed at a fire on his premises on Christmas Eve last. Mr T. H. Belcher appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr D. Davies for the defendant. -It appeared from the evidence that in the fire the whole of the girl's clothes were destroyed, and the de- fendant received jE420 from the insurance company. Mr Price told her he would send in her application with his own for compensation to the insurance com- pany. She understood Mr Price had obtained the money from the insurance company, but refused to indemnify her. The girl herself having been examined, the defendant was questioned by Mr Belcher. He admitted that he received a gross sum of JE420 from the insurance company, and that he sent in her claim, but the insurance agent said that her clothes were not insured, and he did not accept her claim. However, the money was paid in a lump sum to cover all claims. -His Honour, having satisfied himself that the claim for the servant's clothes .vas included in the settle- ment, said he was surprised that anybody should come into court to defend a case like this. He was glad to say that not only in law but in common sense a man who received money from an insurance company, under such circumstances should indemnify his servant for her losses. He would give judgment for the claim- ant with costs. (Applause, which was at once sup- pressed).
ROYAL PATRONAGE -TO THE SALVA- TION ARMY. The writer of Gossip in the WEEKLY DISPATCH" says With reference to Prince George of Wales' decision to do his own chaplaincy on the Thrush, it may be interesting to note that during his last night- a Sunday, by the way—in London he was a devout listener to a contingent of the Salvation Army at Islington-green. He bought a WAR CRY,' and con- tributed liberally to the collection. While the meet- ing was in progress a rude fellow sitting on the adja- cent fountain amused himself by spitting on the ladies' dresses. The prince went up to him, took him firmly by the arm, and pulled him from his perch. The fellow slunk shamefacedly away, and the hallelujah lasses smiled sweetly upon their royal deliverer."
COLLISION OFF PENARTH HEAD. At six o'clock p.i. on Tuesday last, the barque Aalesund, of Farsund (Captain Troyland), from Car- diff to Campagna, coal laden, was lying in Penarth Roads but as the tide flowed strongly, with a stiff breeze from the south-west, she began to drag her anchor. The tide and wind drove her towards the ship Urda, which also was at anchor, and, despite all efforts of the crews of both vessels, they came into col- lision, and the rigging became entangled. The two vessels bumped each other repeatedly before a clear- ance could be effected, and the Aalesund sustained serious damage, being cut below the water's edge. Both vessels obtained assistance from a tug, and they were separated, but the crew of the Aalesund, owing to the damage their vessel had sustained, got on board the Urda. The captain, mate, and one man of the Aalesund remained on board until Thursday morning, when the vessel was towed ashore, where she now lies full of water, covered at high tide. The Urda was towed back to Cardiff, and at the morning tide en- tered the East Dock, where she will be overhauled for repairs. The crew of the Aalesund were received at the Sailors' Home.
