MRS. GRUNDY'S JOTTINGS. Mr J. M. Maclean, late Conservative M.P. for Cardiff, is about to espouse the Liberal faith. 5k The Barry Island Fort is now in charge of several Royal Artillerymen, with an officer. But the guns have not yet arrived. -V- I am sorry to learn that Mr C. B. Brown, the respected accountant of the Barry Gas and Water 'Department, is indisposed. County Councillor Captain F. Hamilton Murrell, K.D., Barry, is at present on a visit to America. The No. 11 Company (Barry) 2nd Glamorgan Volunteer Artillery took part in a battalion parade at Penarth last Monday evening. At a meeting of the Newport School Board last Friday, Mr Peter Wright, the former vice-chairman, who recently resigned, but was subsequently co- opted after a vigorous debate, was again elected to that office. Mr Wright is the Socialist member of the Barry School Board. The total export and import shipments at Barry Docks during the first half of the present year amounted to the splendid total of 4,101,980 tons, the exportation of coal alone being responsible for 3,987,508 tons. Messrs D. Thuraby and W. Hosking, Barry, are the patentees of a new saddle-bar bicycle pump. Barry will put on its best holiday attire next Wednesday, and will give itself over to enjoyment. The Master Bakers' Association will go to Mine- head and Watchet; the Shop Assistants' Union to Minehead the Cadoxton Conservatives also Minehead the Chamber of Trade to Wells and Glastonbury and the Free Church Sunday School Union will hold a grand demonstration at home, when 2,000 scholars will assemble at the Holton Field for the afternoon. The Severn Division Royal Engineers Submarine Miners will go into camp at Barry Island next Saturday, and submarine mining operations will be carried on in the waters of the Bristol Channel, between the Eastern Barry Pier and Sully Island, for the forthcoming month. St. Paul's Church, Barry, was only licensed for marriages by the Bishop of Llandaff in December last. Since that time there have been six weddings solemnized in the Church, three by license and three after banns, besides those marriages solemnized elsewhere after banns called at St. Paul's. A large photo block, illustrating with com- ments on the work turned out by the students at Barry Plumbers' Class, appears in the current number of the Plumber and Decorator." The Revs Aaron Davies, D.D., Barry Christmas J. Lewis, Barry; J. Lewis Jenkins, Cadoxton; D. Jones, Barry Docks L. Ton Evans, Cadoxton and Mr Edgar Jones, M.A., Barry, were amongst those who attended the funeral of Alderman John Jones-Griffiths, of Penygraig, last Thursday. The Barry quoit men simply wiped the floor with the Wattstown men last Saturday at Barry to the tune of 1G8 (the highest possible) to H. And Wattstown is supposed to be a good club. What is her name ? asked the Chairman of the Board of Guardians at Cardiff last Saturday. "She answered to the name of Elizabeth Flowers at Barry Police Court the other day, sir," replied the relieving officer. The international quoit match, England v. Wales, will be played on Welsh soil this year, and inasmuch as the native team will on the present occasion be representative of the Welsh Clubs generally, and not only of those of the Association, it is reasonable to anticipate an easy victory for the Principality. Barry men will be amongst the players who will, therefore, win their caps this year. Dr Williams, of Holton-road, is about to leave the Barry district. s A movement is, I hear, on foot to form a morganatic party of junior members of the Cardiff Union Board of Guardians. The Barry Temperance Choir were amongst the competitors at the Crystal Palace Festival last Wednesday. Gas pipes have been laid for the supply of gas to Dinas Powis this week. The Rev Father Byrne, Barry Docks, has been a chaplian in the Army and of the Glamorgan County Prison, Cardiff. Unfortunately," said Mr J. H. Jones, solicitor, atpenarth Police Court last Wednesday, Johannah Hill, the big woman, went to Barry Island, and fell out of the switchback, therefore, I cannot call her to-day."
