MIlS. GEUNDTS JOTTINGS The German Army dogs, according to the Regiment," are so trained that when they find a dead body they set up a prolonged howling. If no one comes, they take the dead man's cap Or some small article, and with this in their teeth go on a hunt for their trainer, whom they lead to the spot. If the man is wounded, he gives hiS cap to the dog, and the same object is accomplished. Verily, a dog is man's most faithful friend. It has been brought to my notice that the of a certain hotel in this district complain of thS remarks I made last week anent a meritorious action performed by them in behalf of the poor waifs and strays. I am sorry, but it is seldoo that the fair and gentle sex take umbrage wheØ their praiseworthy efforts are duly acknowledge in a suitable way. The Barry District Glee Society intend giving a grand open air concert at Friar's Point, Bartl Island, next Saturday week, admission Is, previouS to proceeding to Paris.

The last issue of the local newspaper, Advertiser, gave considerable prominence to report of the exciting scene at the Guildhall 000, nected with the visit of Mr Tennyson SølltbtbS Cardigan, and it is a singular coincidence that boldest line in the paper-extending across s columns-of one of the centre pages, was prl nothing but pure beer oir M.

De Rille added that when the French P heard the Welsh singers from so many singing it would link the hearts of the and of the French." It is probable that the c°^ mittee and official? of the choir will be entertft1 at Paris by the Bretons. hfl* I am informed that Paris resta'trateuvs » long been in the habit of mixing horsefleS^ g( their savoury ragouts, which appear by ano name in the carte or menu. .eof In consequence of the advance in the Vxl flour, and the continued upward tendency of riI market, the price of bread at Cardiff and SWOO' has this week been increased half-penny 0 quartern loaf.
