TO ADVERI ISEIIS, The South Wales Echo is GUARANTEED to have a Larger Circulation than that of ALL the other Evening Papers of South Wales and Monmouthshire added together. As regards Cardiff alone, it is almost uu- necessary for us to add that the circulation of the South Wales Echo is IMMENSELY GREATER than that of any other Ef vening Paper.
The Man About Town. It is recorded in proverbial philosophy that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing." In no field of experience or walk of life is that truer than of the Law. A man who dabbles in Law is lost-unless he hap- pens to be a family solicitor with a big practice, a famous barrister, or a judge. Yet there are many legal questions itig every day where a little knowledge is a valuable possession to a layman, and as knowledge is power," more power to the elbow of every reader who may, by becoming learned in the law, avoid its uncertainties and worries, for, as Guy Mannering says, Law is like laudanum 'tis much more easy to use it as a quack does than to learn to apply it like a physician." Every subject under the sun has been popularised except the Law, and this is strange, seeing that Ignornnoe of the law excuseth no man." The deficiency is to be rectified, for a Barrister-at-Law is engaged on A Family Lawyer," and a big publish- ing house is issuing it in sixpenny parts. Therefore for the price of a few pints of beer anyone may become his own lawyer, but not a Lockwood or a Lord Russell. In the course of half-an-hour's reading of that new Family Lawyer the would-be lawyer may gain the wisdom of Seneca and the erudition of a Plato. For instance, see what knowledge I have gathered on street noises You may not poison your neighbour's cat. Continuous noise next door is a nuisance. But- A nuisance in one place may not be a nuisance in another Just like the law. All you hftve to do is to get a Magistrate or a Judge to your way of thinking, and then all is well. If he doesn't see with you the "Family Lawyer" will be of no avail. Take another subject Season Ticket Holders have no remedy if trains are late How well travellers by the Taff trains know that fact. The passenger in the corner facing the engine controls the window. That is if the passenger be a cantankerous specimen of the New Woman, or a man of weight with prize-fighting propensities. In these things might is sooften right, your legal knowledge notwithstanding. But enough of this legal wisdom on the sixpenny instal- ment plan. It will be cheering to some to know in these hard times that A creditor need not ask for his money." If the Family Lawyer said must not, the edition would be sold out in ten minut«s When the leaves of Autumn fall, the Artists' pictures go up on the walls of the Picture Galleries. The Ninth Autumn Exhibition of Pictures by the South Wales Art Society will be opened on Saturday by Lord Windsor, the President, at the New Galleries, Queen-street. The ninth annual exhibition—how one is reminded of the flight of time. And the flight of time reminds one, too, of the progress- steady, but certain—which the South Wales Art Society has made. In the early days it was a struggling affair, but the members kept their gaze high, worked on. and paid for the losses incurred in teaching the South Wales public to admire pictures. The members hoped and worked, and were content to win the public to the side of Art by the allurements of music and other entertainments. It was a happy blending of amusement with instruction, and I am not quite sure whether some of the members did not find more enjoyment in th'e struggling days than they do now, when Art stands alone and the Exhibitions are held not in an unapproachable Hall, but in the new galleries of the South Wales Art Society. Be that as it may, Press Day was on Thursday, the banquet is to-night, and the formal opening will be made on Saturday. Press Day in Cardiff is a rather awkward affair. It is somewhat difficult to admire Autumn tints and find yourself tripping over a roll of carpet, or when you step backwards to get the proper light and view of a pretty face find yourself mixed up in a paper of tintacks and hammers, or in sudden oontaot with a pair of steps. These are inconveniences coin- cident with a preliminary view, but they do not tend to help the formation of general impressions or accuracy of judgment. Having dodged the impedimenta and en- joyed a few brief moments of quietude before the principal exhibits, I formed an opinion. I am assured that the general excellence of the pictures is better ( all round, aiwl that it is the finest collec- I tion ever brought together by the Society, I agree with a reservation. The present exhibition does not reach so high in point of excellence as the last. nor does it toucl^quitc so low, though therearestillafew crudities which are not hidden sufficiently from view. These latter are the efforts of members who show their immature work by virtue of the right which their membership carries. It is a pity that the few pictures of this class cannot be arranged in a separate room. But enough of this. I protest that I am not Indulging in querulous fault-finding-I rejoice rather that in the present Exhibition only the slightest trace of amateurish crudities appears. I had hoped that it would be absent this year. Yet a little while longer! The vanity of beginners is strong and deep-rooted, and they must be encouraged, for if there were no beginners there would be no finished artiste* But, seriously, the Society have been suc- cessful in bringing together a very pleasing collection of pictures. The work of the members is very prominent, an encourag- ing fact which shows that the South Wales Art Sociecy is large Iy a body of workers as distinct from purely admirers of art. In the last exhibition, the finest pictures were in the water colour room. This year the palm must go to the oil painters. It is an exhibition which will appeal to the average visitor to picture galleries, for there are many choice bits of colouring and happily-chosen subjects which anyone might be pleased to place in his drawing-room. In that sense the collection will be successful. And in addition to pleasing the public it should also prove of value to the amateur. It is delightfully varied in style and subject and method of treatment, and it is not difficult to trace in the. various pictures the road to fame for an artist from the uncertain and heavy strokes of the beginner to the finished creations of the master. What of Welsh Art ? WeU, you cannot expect a nine-year-old society to produce a distinct Welsh School of artists. It is true that several members of the Society are endeavouring to cultivate a distinct style with strong" and bold peculiarities, and possibly they may succeed —but one doubts it. Originality is not everything in a picture if it is to live and give satisfaction there must be a strong and forcible personality reflected there. It is tolerably easy to imitate, to faithfully copy but difficult to see that which is half hidden and most difficult to create. Let me hasten to say that there is a marked advance noticeable in all the members' work so far as I was able to see. The same attention has been given to local subjects, as a casual glance at the catalogue will show, wherein lies half the charm for the average visitor to the Exhibition. The Society deserves to succeed. One may regret the apparent decay of serious drama, and give expression to the regret that Shakespeare and the classic I dramas and comedies are not seen more frequently on the British stage, but it is not difficult to see the cause of the success of the musical farce. Take The Shop Girl," for instance, which is attracting crowded houses nightly, though it has visited Cardiff on at least two previous occasions. Most of those present last night bad laughed before at the funny sayings and pulled wry faces at the outrageous puns hummed over many of the catchy strains and admired the exceedingly clever dancing. Why did they go again 'I Because the play is blight, the music tuneful and pretty, and the story, such as it is, touches everyone. In that one discovers the reason for the success of farcical comedy and the musical play. I don't like your sobbing plays," a lady remarked the other evening; give me something to laugh at." The musical play is like a bright spot in a sombre existence to the occasional habitue of the theatre. It is related of a Cardiff Alderman that he drowns his cares in a Welsh Rarebit and the flowing bowl. In this lie fiuds sanctuary-the majority must discover it in other directions, and many of them have no difficulty at the Theatres. Just as there is a time for everything so there is a place for everything, and I submit that the public street is not the proper arena for football by gaslight. This is a matter to which the police should give a little attention. Wyndham-crescent, Can- ton—a busy thoroughfare much frequented- cannot as it was the other night be occupied by a dozen or more stalwart devotees of the popular pastime kicking a greasy bail about without great annoy. ance to the residents and danger to pedestrians. A perfect pandemonium raged for several hours on the night in question, and there wasn't a policeman within call. Rowdyism in Canton has again become intolerable. So I learn from the spot, but the police might give attention to the principal streets of the town, where rowdyism is rampant. The streets are never clear of the hobble-de-hoys who are larking on the pavement, jostling and banging into pedestrians, or standing in groups blockin g the traffic.

MARRIED IN GAOL. Mairiages in prison are of sufficiently rare occurrence to be worth noticing. One has jusO taken place in the State penitentiary at Limoges, the bridegroom being a pickpocket undergoing a term of four years' confinement for his misdeeds, whilst the bride, who is twenty-five, and also a member of the same industrious profession, will linger in retirement for the space of three years. Prison warders escorted the couple to the church, and one acted as best man. Once the nuptial knot was tied, the minor details of the wedding trip and honeymoon were dispensed with, and the newly-joined lovers were locked up in their respective o«lls. Nor will they aee each other for four years.

THE MAKING OF A JOCKEY- 1 Hard Work and the Muzzle, ) Probably no one undergoes such labour on suet low diet as the jockey who is wasting himsell so as to scale with another lucky fellow whose nature runs less to fat. In the hottest weather be pi)es on clothes and takes sharp walks. He labours hard, and the more be sweats the more he feels he has done his duty. Then comes the muz- zle. After the labour there is appetite; after the sweating there is thirst-a raging thirs but the food must be strictly limited, and th* drink must be of the smallest, or all the labour would be for nought. The privation is horrible. Training for condition is bad enough, and haf made many a good fellow throw athleticism to the dogs; but training for weight is a fat greater inflation. There are so many pounds to be got off, and so many days or weeks in which to do it. By physic, by sweating, by hard labour, and by starvation it has to be done. and that in a certain time. As an instance- of continuous self-denial there are few posi- tions which will compare with that of a jockey when he is working himself down to scale. A man in ordinary condition hardly varies in weight from day to day, whatever he may eat or drink. and many men leading fairly irregular lives keep their weight almost without change for raontht and even years. It is not so, however, wbett training has brought down the weight far belo. its natural level. Under such circumstanced every cell in the body seems hungry and athirstb and moisture is sucked up as by blotting paper. Many break down under the strain, the starvation telling on the nervous system before it afiectC their flesh, while others throw up the effort rather thau continue the miserable system of starvation which is involved in keeping tbf scales on the right side. -British Medical Journal
MORTUARIES. At an inquest held recently at Farncombe thf medical U\U complained bitterly of the difficulty, he had experienced in making the post-iiiorteii examination, which had to take place in a private house owing to there being no mortuary, Almost coincidently with this an inquest was held in t public-house at Wandsworth, where the jury- all honour to them passed the following resolution, with which the Coroner agreed} We, as a coroner's jury here assembled* beg to put forward our protest in view of the fact that our parish, to which we are all rate- payers, is without a proper coroner's court. We consider that every p"h should be provided with a court and mortuary (combined), which would prevent the necessity of holding such sacred inquiries, as inquests should be, in < public-house. The surroundings are directly opposed to the proper holding of such inquiries, and we call upon the aui-hcities to erect a proper court in this parish." We thmk this is a subject which might well occupy the attention of countt councils. Reverence for the dead-or, indeed, any other sort of reverence—has become nowaa days far too rare, and, apart from the ethical and theological side, there is the question of healtfc- to be considered-both that of the medical map who makes the necropsy and of the rest of tbf living.-The Lancet.
SALVATIONISTS AND THE DRAMA. The attitude of the Salvation Army toward* the drama and theatrical performances is thus officially defined We never have been by any means opposed to the dramatic element' in saving and blessing the people. There is much in it that we may yet incorporate in our method of instructing people in the ways and wages ot sin, and in leading them to God. Our recent exhibition at the Royal Agricultnr-Al Hall was. announced as a real hving picture of the Army in its various ramifications of saving drunkards, uplifting the submerged, and converting the heathen. The dramatic element' largely obtained in these representations; but the difference between these methods and the stage generally is as distinct as black and white. The theatre is consecrated to meet the tastes and' cravings of the people for entertainment, pleasure, and sensation. The people's fauciee-iit)b the people's present and eternal needs-decide the aim and character of the play. On the otheC hand, our theatre, if we may use the term without being misrepresented, is dedicated to representJ what is actually true, and to lead people on the spot to renounce the pleasures of the world, and live for the highest and noblest end of man—the servico of God and the deliverance of the world from the dominion of sin."
| VIOLENT CHARACTERS, Joan Goulding (34) and Wm. Lowe (25) watt brought up at Csrditf Police Court this morning charged with assaulting two policemen on the 1st inst. It appeared from the evidence adduced that Goulding was conducting himself in a riotous manner 111 Bute-street when P.O. Charles Jones took him into custody. He thereupon became very violent, and struck him several blows on the aide of the head. Lowe in the meantime had arrived on the scene and attempted to rescue Goulding, and finding himself unable to manage both men the constable blew bis whistle, and P.O. Fudge went to his assistance. Lowe then became exceedingly violent, kicking the officer about the leg. and striking him numerous blows about the face with his fist. Goulding had nob been con- victed for a similar offence,and the Deputy Stipen- diarysenb him to 14 days' imprisonment only; bu. Lowe had a very black record, and was ordered to undergo three months' imprisonment with hard labour.
PEER-MAYORS. The provincial fashion of peer-mayors promisag to bf) as much in evidence as ever at the forth- coming elections of chief magistrates. Amongst other rumours on this point, one is especially interesting-thab which points to Lord Heneage as Mayor of Grimsby. His new Lordship hat evidently forgiven his old constituency tor its period of faithlessness to him and his party. Another peer-mayor, the Earl of Warwick, will preside as mayor at Oken's feast, at Warwick, to-day. The Countess has arrived at the Castle from Scotland in much better health, and is sending her daughter Lady Marjorie Greville to the High School at Warwick, under Miss Margaret Lea, formerly of Girton College.—Daily Chronicle.
MAGISTRATES AND COCKLES. Ten fisharmen were summoned, under the Lancashire Sea Fisheries Bye laws, at Ulverston yesterday, for taking undersized cockles. The evidence of the bailiffs was that in every case not less than 50 per cent, of the cockles were under. sized. Me Walker, in defence, submitted that the bye law was unreasonable. Mr Sanderson, for the prosecution, pointed out that the bye laws had been agreed upon, after repeated inquiries, at between the authority and the fishermen. The Bench adjourned the cases for a month, agreeing to meet on the sands with the solicitors, tht magistrates' clerk, and the fishery superintendent, and see all the cockles pub through the gauge.
