BARRY CHAMBER OF TRADE. IMPROVED RAILWAY AND OTHER PUBLIC FACILITIES NEEDED. A meeting of the Barry Chamber of Trade and Improvement Association was held on Thursday evening, the 4th instant, at the Barry Cafe, when Mr T. P. Thomas (president) occupied the chair. Mr D. Thomas introduced the question of the Barry train service and its connections with neighbouring lines, and moved that steps be taken to secure improved facilities by better connections with the Taff Vale, Rhymney, Great Western, and Cowbridge and Aberthaw systems. If these concessions were secured, he said, it would no doubt mean that many commercial men and others now living at Cardiff would make Barry their centre.—Mr Roberts (Cardiff) seconded.— A discussion followed, and it was at length resolved that a committee be appointed to go into the matter fully and report thereon. The question of providing public seats and shelter at, Coldknap, and for the establishment of brake service to places of interest in the district, also came up for consideration, and it was felt that every provision possible should be made for the accommodation and convenience of visitors, the number of whom was annually increasing. It was announced that the annual picnic of the Chamber be held on Wednesday, the 17th instant, when Wells and Glastonbury will be visited.
The Cycling World. — 0 Fatal accidents have been rather numerous lately on the road, mainly due to the lack of sufficient care on the part of the riders themselves as will be seen for example from the following short list of accidents which we give. A Mr. Fish of Ashton-under-Lyne was out cycling with a few friends, and was riding behind a conveyance proceeding in the same direction; suddenly he darted out on the offside to pass, when a dog cart coming in the opposite direction which he had not noticed, ran into him, the shaft penetrating his side. He lingered for a day or two but ultimately succumbed to the injuries. Another case is of a cyclist in the Peak district of Derbyshire, who was found unconscious at the foot of a steep hill down which he had apparently rushed without exercis- ing the necessary caution. On the Ripley road, another cyclist, through endeavouring to pass between the kerbstone and a brake, met with his death. The space that he was negotiating was so narrow that when his front wheel ran into an imperfectly filled up hole at the roadside he swerved and fell beneath the wheels of the vehicle. Such accidents as these do harm to the sport; yet they should impress upon cyclists the necessity of exercising dae care on every occasion. For the purpose of ascertaining the nature of the country between Mombasa and Khartoum, in view of making a new route, Mr. J. A. Bailey has recently accomplished the journey, making extensive use of his bicycle. Although for miles at a stretch, the route, or perhaps we should say track, (for in places it was only a matter of one foot broad), was thickly covered with large sharp thorns, he only suffered four punctures, while the intense heat of the tropical climate failed to prove detrimental to the Dunlop-Welch tropical tyres which had been selected for the journey. Successful as was the racing at the recent Surrey meeting, it was one of the worst from the promotor's point of view, the events being held before one of the "thinnest" gates on record. Meetings now are only few and far between and as the sport is good it follows that if there was ever a time when the public should turn up in far greater numbers to see the racing, it is the present; but the hold racing has upon the public is fast dwindling away. Now-a- days people prefer, instead of standing for some hours watching the sport however good it may be, to themselves take to the wheel and ride off into the country in search of health and enjoyment; and, after all, it is much better that it should be so. The cycling world is the richer by another royal cyclist. Prince Edward of York, heir to the throne, was seven years of age on Sunday last; and his grandfather, the King, selected the occa- sion as fit and proper for the presentation to him of a juvenile bicycle. The machine is perhaps one of the finest juvenile cycles which has ever been turned out. It has a 14-in. frame, 20-in. racing wheel, cork handles silver tipped, 41-iii. cranks, and 3-in. pedals. Every part of the machine was specially made. It is to be hoped the little prince will enjoy his cycling now and develop into a keen rider in later days. A little time back the Dean of Durham referred to some cyclists at a parade as fools on cycles dressed as such, a reference which naturally aroused a large amount of resentment. A prominent cyc- list in the north of England addressed a letter to the Dean dealing with this utterance, and received a reply to the effect that it was only meant for a joke. Naturally the reply is locally regarded as ext'remely thin. At any rate, even if common people may play" jokes of this kind, deans ought to know better. The serious accident which occurred to J. Platt- Betts in the summer of 1898, would have deterred any ordinary man from again following the for- tunes of the race path, but not Piati-Betts, for no sooner had he recovered from his serious accident than he was found again pedalling his Dunlop- tyred safety to the tune of records. Although in the intervening years he has met with sundry mishaps, his attraction to racing has been so great as to prevent him relinquishing the path, and now, for the second time in his career, he has fallen an unfortunate victim to the many dangers surround- ing speed riding. When recently engaged in an attempt on the world's mile record, his pacing motor missed fire, causing him to touch its back wheel, with the result that Betts was thrown heavily, breaking his arm as well as sustaining sundry other injuries. Youthful cyclists who are ambitious to shine on she path in boy's races, should be warned by the following case which was recently heard in a Sheffield Police Court. It appears that a youth named David Mead, who competed in a half-mile bicycle handicap for boys under 14, was summoned for obtaining a marble clock, (the first prize) with intent to defraud. Mead declared he was 13 years old on the 6bh July last, but when his certificate of birth was obtained, it showed he was born in December, 1884, and was therefore over 16. Under the circumstances the Bench had no alternative but to fine the young racer 40/ and order him to return his prize. According to a legal correspondent on cycling matters generally, if you are worried by a ferocious dog, you are entitled to strike it in self-defence, and no liability will be attached to you if it dies. If a dog gets in your way and causes you a mishap, you have no remedy against its owner. Dogs are counted among the ordinary risks of the road; but if you collide with a wandering horse or cow, and can show that you took all reasonable steps to avoid a collision, you are entitled to be compen1 sated by its owner for any injury you sustain.

THIS REMARKABLE CURE CAN BE ATTESTED TO BY MR. DAVIES, CHEMIST, LLANELLY. IT IS ONLY ANOTHER PROOF THAT VENO'S SEAWEED TONIC IS THE MOST SUCCESSFUL AND REMARKABLE MEDICINE EVER BROUGHT TO WALES FOR ALL STOMACH, LIVER, KIDNEY, AND BLOOD DISEASES. GEORGE ROSSER, 48, Island Place, Llanelly, writes June 10th :— "Mr Veno,—Dear Sir,-If my few words of praise for your valuable Seaweed Tonic will do you any good I am sure you have it. It has done me a power of good. My stomach was so bad I could not eat my food, but it all came back. I was weak, could not work, and was weary of my life. This had been my case for over nine months. The doctor could not do anything for me. I had tried them, and all the chemists, and every Patent Medicine I could hear of, but got no better; then I heard of you giving free doses at Mr Davies' shop. I thought to try once more, as when you are suffering you are glad to try anything. The first dose of Seaweed Tonic eased me, and seemed to warm my stomach, which was always cold. I called again and found such relief that I kept on taking it, now I feel capital. I must tell you I am a Scotchman, but have lived many years in Llanelly. I have been in the Army many years-in the Siege of Lucknow, and other battles, so you must know my health has suffered considerably from privations, climate, and other things. I never felt better in my life than I do at this moment. Thanks to you for your valuable Seaweed Tonic. I feel fit to go to South Africa now, and help them finish the war. You can send anyone to me, and I'll tell them more about your medicine than I can write to you."

REGISTERED, VENO'S SEAWEED TONIC Has beaten off the Angel of Death and brought brightness and strength to many a despairing invalid. Those who have tested it know its healing and strengthening power. They speak from experience when they say it is the only medicine that ever made them feel well. It clears the bra n, strengthens the stomach, purifies the blood, relieves headache, steadies the action of the heart, cures kidney and liver troubles, and invigorates the whole body. 1 It is highly esteemed amongst doctors for the permanent cure of habitual constipation. Far superior to pills of any sort. Price 1;1:1 and 2/9 per bottle. A valuable book accompanies each bottle on diseases and their cure. VENO'S LIGHTNING COUGH CURE Stops an ordinary cough in one night, and cures chronic coughs, bronchitis, asthma, and whooping-cough rapidly. Its vast superiority over the ordinary cough mixtures, or any of the emulsions, cannot be estimated. It has saved many lives after they have been turned out of hospitals. It is a new scientific remedy endorsed by Medical Men. Guaranteed to cure the worst cases. Price 1/1.1 and 2/9 ^er CAUTION. When you ask for VENO'S Seaweed Tonic or VENO'S Lightning Cough Cure be sure you get it. Many dealers are in the habit of trying to coax you to take a cheap mixture of their own.

BARRY COUNTY COURT. Ninety-four plaints were entered for hearing at the monthly sitting of Barry County Court on Tuesday last, the uncontested cases being dealt with by the Registrar, Mr A. Jackson. HOW THEY DO THINGS IN BIRMINGHAM. A number of judgment summonses having been disposed of, his Honour Judge Owen heard the case of Giddings, Hill and Company, Birmingham, against Alfred Brown, painter. Barry, claim for £ 32 3s 3d for goods supplied.—Defendant pleaded poverty, and said he was out of work all last winter. He ordered £ 10 worth of goods of the plaintiffs and he paid them £ 8, and they stopped credit.-The Judge That is how they do things in Birmingham. If you dealt with Cardiff or Barry people their treatment of you might have been different. You must pay 10s per month and costs. HAD NOT PAID FOR HIS RENT William Syms, Barry-road, Cadoxton, who was represented by Mj- Morgan Davies (Messrs Hughes and Davies, solicitors, Cardiff), obtained an order order for 4s per month against George W. Coles, painter, with respect to an account for 18s lOd arrears of rent. I CANNOT CALL YOU FRED. Frederick Harrison answered to a summons claiming from him 13s for butcher's meat supplied by John Richards, Barry Docks.-His Honour (to defendant) What is your name ?—Defendant Fred Harrison.-The Judge Fred or Frederick ? —Defendant: Frederick.-The Judge: Why did you not say so ? I am not on sufficient terms of friendship with you to call you Fred. (Laughter). -The claim was investigated, his Honour remark- ing that most of the account was for beef, but on one occasion defendant had a fancy for veal.—To pay in a month. THE TRAVELLING DRAPER FORGOT HIS BOOK. C. Collins is a travelling draper, and he sued George Smith for 40s for a suit of clothes.— Defendant's wife appeared and denied the liability. —His Honour (to plaintiff) Where is your book ? I forgot it until after I left home this morning.— The Judge: You ought to have got up earlier. You must know you ought to have produced your book. I will adjourn the case for a month, and you, Mrs Smith (who by this time was growing eloquently talkative), you may keep your loquacity for your husband, but you may see that you get yourexpenses for coming here to-day. That will be more than you would have earned at home, WOULD NOT PAY FOR THE STAFF OF LIFE. Mr Frank Maisey, baker, had three cases against customers for non-payment of account for bread supplied. Mrs Cartwright and Mrs Bright denied the debt, and in the former case his Honour ordered particulars to be produced in the latter I an order was made. WE ARE ALL LABOURERS MORE OR LESS. What is your husband ? asked his Honour to the wife of Harry Newport, of Cadoxton, who owed Mr Maisey 25s lOd for bread supplied.-Mrs Newport: A labourer, sir,—The Judge What sort of labourer? We are all labourers, more or less.—Mrs Newport A labourer at the dock.-His Honour 0, 4s per month. A WIFE'S SEPARATE ESTATE. Agnes May denied that she had a separate estate, and was not, therefore, liable for jg.2 6s 3d claimed against her by John Rees, hay merchant, for goods supplied, but on being pressed by the Judge she admitted she had a horse and cart in her own name.—An order was made. THE FOND MOTHER OF THREE BABIES. Dr Sixsmith sued John Davies for £ 3 lis 6d for medical attendance on his. wife. The latter appeared, and denied that she owed more than £ 1 19s,6d "according to the price of medicine." She had been medically attended at childbirth.- His Honour How many babies have you had ?- Mrs Davies: Three, your Hononr.-The Judge Only three. (Laughter). — Mrs Davies: In the bill is an item for 5s for attending my grandfather. I That had nothing to do with me.—His Honour No, your grandfather did not have a baby, did he ? (Laughter). You must pay the bill, less 5s for attendance on the grandfather.—Mrs Davies left the court declaring she would never pay. THE RATE vOlt BAY, Langley and Company, Penarth, v. William Thomas, coal merchant, Dinas Powis, for A4 5s for hay supplied. Defendant paid £ 2 10s into court. but objected to paying any more, as it was too high a rate for hay.—His Honour There is no rate for hay fortunately. It is dear enough as it is, and some of us will know it by and bye to our cost.—Order for 35s.
THE BARRY COMPANY AND THE LAWS DELAYS. A writer upon legal topics in a contemporary comments upon a decision of the House of Lord, in the appeal of the Barry Railway Companyu, White. It will be recalled that the respondent, then an infant, brought an action against the railway company by his father as next friend, to recover compensation for injuries sustained in consequence of the alleged negligence of the com- pany. The lad was returning from seeing his father off at the Barry Railway Station to his ship, the B. T. Robinson, of which he was engineer. He had to cross certain lines on what was described by the appellants as their shunting yard, and in doing so was overtaken by a train, and knocked down, and his injuries were so great as to necessi- tate the amnutation of both feet and the loss of half his right hand—the thumb and two fingers. The jury awarded him £ 1,750 damages. The company applied to the Court of Appeal to set- aside the verdict and judgment or to grant a new trial on the ground of misdirection by the judge. The Court held that there had been misdirection, but that the jury were not in fact misled, and that there was sufficient evidence to sustain the verdict. The appeal judges were doubtless influenced by humane considerations. But the House of Lords felt constrained to order a new trial. This case (says the writer referred to) strikingly illustrates the cruel delay sometimes caused by our centralised system. The incident happened on November 7th, 1893, The trial took place in London on May llth and 12th, 1899. The decision of the Court of Appeal was on July 11th, 1899. Thus the case has taken nearly fcwQ/Jjpsrs in coming to the House of Lords. The conipany presented their appeal to the House of Lords in May, 1900, but it was not set down for hearing presented their appeal to the House of Lords in May, 1900, but it was not set down for hearing until March 25th last. Parties have a year to make up their minds to appeal—whether to the Court of Appeal or to the House of Lords. The time is too long, and the judges should have some power of restricting it. It is a curious rendering of the maxim, Interest rei -publico} ut sit finis litium." In France and other countries the case would have been tried locally, and taken to a local court of appeal.

ANNUAL OUTING OF MESSRS. C. H. BAILEY'S EMPLOYEES. On Saturday last the employees of Messrs C. H. Bailey and Son, of the Tyne Engineering Works, Barry Docks, had their annual outing to Minehead, when a company numbering about 150, including several ladies, proceeded by boat from Penarth to Minehead. The day was a most delightful one, and the trip to and fro was thoroughly enjoyed. Dinner was served at the Pier Hotel, when the chair was occupied by Mr D. Roberts, superinten- dent engineer, Barry Docks, and he was supported by Messrs A. Clissett, T. R. Williams, W. Price, P. A. Lawson. H. Osborn, etc. After dinner a brief toast list was gone through. The Chairman proposed The King and Royal Family," which was loyally received. The toast of the day, that of Mr C. H. Bailey, was entrusted to Mr W. Price, who said the name of Mr Bailey was world-wide known to-day. All the latest machinery had been fixed at their works, both at Barry and Newport, for carrying out all branches of ship-repairing. The rapid growth of the firm was due to the devotion and energy of its principal and staff.— -The toast was received with musical honours, and in responding Mr H. Saunderson read a telegram which had been received from Mr Bailey, expressing a hope that all would enjoy themselves. (Cheers).—The Chairman gave The Staff," nnd said he had always found them an excellent lot from the manager down to the smallest boy in the works.—Mr 'f.- Williams suitably responded.— The Ladies was proposed, and the toast was acknowledged by Mr A, Clissett.—The health of the Chairman was also heartily drank. A telegram regretting his inability to attend was also received from Mr W. Graham, the respected manager of the firm.-After dinner the party were driven to Porlock and Pcrlock Weir, where a most enjoyable afternoon was spent, the return journey being entered upon about eight o'clock, and Barry was reached about 9.30, every- one being highly delighted with the trip. We should add that the secretarial arrangements of the outing were carried out by Mr P. A. Lawson, with a committee consisting of Messrs T, Williams, A. Clissett, and W. Price.
FIRES AT BARRY DOCKS. While on duty at an early hour on Saturday morning last, P. C. Poolman saw smoke issuing from the windows of No. 54, Kingsland-crescent, Barry Docks, occupied by Mr George Harvey, a pilot. The constable at once summoned the police staff, and they were promptly in attendance with the hose and reel, and the outbreak, which occurred in one of the bedrooms, was extinguished within en hour. The loss was covered by insurance. Early on Monday morning last a fire broke out in premises occupied by Mr D. Bevan, greengrocer, 28, Holton-road, Barry Docks. The police, with the hose and reel, were quickly on the scene, and succeeded in getting the fire under way before much damage was done. The origin of the fire is unknown. These periodical fires in the Barry district are effectually coped with by the local police staff, with the aid of the manual extinguish- ing appliances, each recurring occasion affording additional proof of the unnecessary purchase by the District Council some time ago of a costly fire engine, which, housed as it is in a. palatial structure which cost over £ 2,000, has never yet been used.
QUITE ANOTHER MAN. lô, Upper Gough-street, Birmingham. Gentlemen,—For ten years I have suffered from bronchitis, inflammation of the lungs, cold in the kidneys, and pains in the back. Hearing of Gwilym Evans' Quinine Bitters, I was persuaded to try them I have had two small and one large bottle, and I can assure you that I already feel quite another man, and can do my work much easier now.-Yours sincerely, J. PRATT.
