I Considerable local interest was evinced in the case of the Police v. Andrew Garrick, landlord of Ship Hotel, Penarth, charged with permitting drunkenness on licensed premises on the night of the 17th ultimo. The evidence for the prosecution, given by P.C.'s Kear (330) and Mendus (97), was to the effect that on the night in question they saw an old man named Ezekiel Marron enter the hotel whilst in a drunken condition. They waited outside for a couple of minutes to see whether the man would be ejected. The officers subsequently entered, and found the man with three women in the jug and bottle department, each with a glass of beer before them. The attention of the bar- maid and landlord was called to the man's condition. The former said she did not know that Marron was the worse for drink, but the landlord when called admitted that he was drunk.— Inspector Hallett corroborated as to Marron's inebriate state. — In defence, Mr J. H. Jones, solicitor, Cardiff, pleaded that Marron, who was quite orderly, betrayed no indication of drunken- ness, and was supplied by the barmaid through a pigeon hole from the long bar, where she could not see him except partially. Some men, Mr Jones added, got drunk in the head and others got drunk in the legs, but in the present instance Marron spoke intelligently and readily spelt his Christian name, and if there was a conclusive proof of a man's sobriety it was that Marron was able to spell Ezekiel correctly. (Laughter.)—The defendant, Gwendoline Thomas (barmaid), Amelia Evans, and Mary Sherrard were called toprovelthat Marron was not intoxicated when he was supplied with drink.—The Bench were of opinion that the defendant had not exercised proper supervision in the conduct of his house, and he was not justified in allowing this cupboard of a place," the jug and bottle department, to be used for the supply of customers for drinking purposes. There was no previous complaint against Garrick, who seemed to have properly conducted the place hitherto. He would, therefore, have the benefit of the doubt, and the case would be dismissed, but the justices urged defendant to be more careful in future. EASTBROOK MAID CHARGED WITH ATTEMPTED SUICIDE. A young woman named Alice Auckland, living with her parents at Eastbrook, was charged with attempting to commit suicide by drowning herself in a pond at Howis Farm, Eastbrook, on the even- ing of the 8th instant. The circumstances were somewhat singular. The occupier of the farm said he heard a splash in the pond on Monday evening, but thinking there were boys bathing in the pond he took no notice of the circumstance. Half-an-hour later he passed the pond and saw the girl lying in the water. He pulled her out, and for nearly two hours she was unconscious. On the following morning the girl was arrested by P. C. Peacock (241), and in reply to the charge of attempted suicide she said she went to the pond to dip up some water for the CGlt, when she became giddy and fell into the water on her head.-Dr F. T. Roche, Dinas Powis, said Auckland was subject to epileptic fits.-The girl's father was present in court, and having promised to take care of his daughter, she was dismissed with a caution. SUNDAY DISORDERLY SCENES AT PENARTH. Three Cardiff youths, named Eugenie Daly, Humphrey Williams, and James Driscoll, were summoned for being drunk and disorderly on Sunday evening last at Penarth. The police stated that owing to numerous complaints they watched the neighbourhood of the Esplanade Hotel, and found the defendants in a drunken state, behaving in a disorderly manner, and jost- ling against people. They would not go away, and the constables placed them under arrest.— Colonel Thornley said the conduct of people who came over from Cardiff on Sunday for the pur- pose of obtaining drink was disgraceful. The defendants would be fined 7s 6d each, or be sent to prison for seven days. A FAMOUS NAME. Hector Macdonald is a sailor, who was found in a very drunken and disorderly state at Penarth on Tuesday last, and he was fined 7s 6d. CYCLIST OFFENDERS. Arthur Skinner, who did not appear, was fined 10s, and Fred Skinner and Joseph Danter 5s each, for riding thmr bicycles on the footpath at Llandough. A GUNNER'S THIRST. Gunner Robert Roberts, R.A., stationed at Lavernock Fort, was ordered to pay a penalty of 5s for falsely representing himself to be a hma-jide traveller for the purpose of obtaining drink at the Esplanade Hotel, Penarth.
ALLEGED BIGAMY AT BARRY DOCKS. SHE HOPED HER FIRST HUSBAND WAS DEAD. A stylishly dressed young woman, Margaret Danjou by name, 20 years of age, was charged at the Cardiff Police Court on Monday afternoon last (before Mr E. W. Shackell and Mr Edward Thomas) with bigamy, it being alleged that she went through a form of marriage with George R. Gazard, a groom, at Cogan, while John B. Danjou, her former husband, to whom she was previously married in March, 1898, was still alive. Mr Harold M. Lloyd, solicitor, appeared for the defence. Both Mr Gazard and Mr Danjou were in court, the former being called to prove that when he went through the form of marriage at the Register Office he believed her to be a single woman of the name of Bartlett. Defendant's marriage with Danjou was proved by the deputy registrar, Mr Henry L. Jones, who deposed to having been a witness of the ceremony at Barry Dock Roman Catholic Church. Defendant was I arrested by Detective Rankin at Penarth on Friday night, and charged with the offence. Defendant said she knew all about it, but declared that she had heard that Danjou was dead. She wished he was dead. Defendant, who reserved her defence, was committed to take her trial at the Assizes. Bail was allowed.

I Patrick Maloney, who has just returned from the War in South Africa, and is now carrying on business as greengrocer in Graving Dock-street, [ Barry Docks, was summoned by his wife, Eleanor Maloney, with assault. Prosecutrix said on the 28th ultimo her husband abused her, and she ran out of the house, and was on the way to the Police Station for protection, when he followed her, and caught her by the head, pulled her by the hair across the road, and threw her down. While on the floor he kicked and thumped her in the back. She became unconscious, and was carried into a neighbour's house. On tbe previous night he also pulled her and the two children out of bed.—Two women named Saunderson and Barnett corrobo- rated, the latter stating that Mrs Maloney was unconscious for fifteen minutes after the assault. -Defendant said he sent his wife tc Cardiff on the Thursday for some vegetables, but she came home with an empty cart and half drunk. On the date of the assault he went into the Windsor Hotel, and she followed him and threw a pint cup at him. He admitted pulling her by the hair, but denied that he otherwise ill-used her.—In reply to General Lee, Mrs Maloney said her husband continually ill-treated her. —Accused pleaded that he had had an exemplary discharge from the Army, and that was not easy to obtain.-General Lee said the last thing a soldier should do was to assault a woman. Maloney would be fined £ 1, and be bound over in JB10 to keep the peace for six months. PATERNITY ORDER AGAINST A SOLDIER. Gunner David John Lloyd, of the Mule Battery, R A. stationed at Newport was ordered to, con- tribute Is 91 per week towards the support of the illegitimate male child of Sarah Jane Hucker, Sheepcourt Cottagp, Bonvilstone, of which he was adjudged the father. Mr J. H. Morgan, solicitor, Cardiff, appeared for the complainant. NO CONTROL.

Inspector Morris Have you any witnesses ?— Defendant: Washing and cleaning.-Margaret declared she was neither drunk or disorderly.— General Lee: You may go.—Margaret: Thank you, sir. ALLEGED THEFT OF A WATCH. Thomas Jones, a sailor, was placed in the dock charged with stealing a watch, the property of William Flinn, a dock watchman. Flinn said on the 5th instant he was in the Victoria Hotel, Barry Docks, when defendant came up and asked him for a drink. He gave Jones a shilling to get some drink. Jones did not, however, call for the drinks, but came and sat by his side. Flinn twice found Jones' hand in his pocket, and shortly afterwards he missed his watch. — Frederick Richards stated he saw Jones' hand in Flinns' pocket.-P.C. Herbert Evans arrested Jones, but when searched, the watch could not be found.— Prisoner said if liberated he could find fifty men who could swear Flhm had no watch on the occasion.-Case dismissed.

A NURSE'S ADVJCE. I TO ALL WHO SUFFER FROM NEURALGIA AND WEAKNESS. "I SINCERELY RECOMMEND DR. SLATER'S BLOOD-MAKING TABLETS." THEY CURED HER WHEN ALL ELSE FAILED. Next to advice direct from a physician is that from a thoroughly qualified trained nurse. Not infrequently indeed the latter advice, based as it is on long and careful observation of innumerable cases, is preferable. For whereas the doctor goes and sees and advises, and leaves the patient, the nurse watches every change notes every improvement, combats every relapse, and keeps throughout in closest contact with the patient. The advise of Nurse J. Williams, of Vernon Terrace,. East Finchley, London, N.—who has had a very varied experience of ailments and medicines of all kinds,-relative to the value of DR. SLATER'S BLOOD-MAKING TABLETS will therefore be very acceptable. To a "Weekly Budget reporter Miss Williams said :—" I suffered from neuralgia for several years, and tried countless different remedies to no purpose. In March last I had a violent attack, and I was almost mad with agony. Anyone who has been subject to neuralgia will be able to imagine my terrible sufferings. I knew that general weakness was -the real cause of the trouble, and did all I could to obtain relief. Yet try as I would, I could not get rid of the torturing agony. DR. SLATER'S TAB-LETS seemed to me a very likely cure, and I had heard them very highly spoken of. So. I obtained some and gave them a fair trial. They very soon relieved me, and a little perseverence with them resulted in a complete cure. From that -time to this I have never again been troubled with either weakness or neuralgia And you have no hesitation in recommending DR. SLATER'S BLOOD MAKING- TABLETS V queried the reporter—" No replied the nurse. Before I took the Tablets I suffered intensely. Afterwards the pain was banished, and it has never returned. This I believe to be due to the strengthening qualities of the Tablets which I can and do sincerely recommend to aU sufferers from neuralgia." More telling and trustworthy testimony, higher praise, or advice from a better informed quarter than that given above cannot be imagined, and all ¡ women, young girls, or men who suffer from nervousness, weakness, neuralgia, treinulousness, St. Vitus's dance, or other nervous diseases, should bear it in mind. DR. SLATER'S BLOOD-MAKING TABLETS are a true tonic. They tone up the nerves in the only effective way-that is by purifying and enriching the blood. It follows that their triumphs are not mere improvements of a day or week, but are permanent cures. For anaemia, paralysis, locomotor ataxia, loss of physical tone, rheumatism, debility, female weaknesses, and irregularities, lumbago, gout, spinal disease, sciatica, the early stages of con- sumption, loss of appetite, that feeling of fag, the- after effects of influenza, bloodless and sallow complexions, and all scrofulous ailments they are unrivalled. You may obtain them from alL chemists or direct from the Slater Medicine Company's Laboratories.

RETURN OF GLAMORGAN IMPERIAL YEOMANRY FROM THE FRONT. I A further batch- of Imperial Yeomanry have returned home from the Front this week, arriving at Cardiff on Tuesday, and was met by Colonel Wyndham.-Q.uin,. MvP;, the late commanding officer of the Glamorgan^. The local members of the company were Sergeant George Davies, of IJan- dough Corporal C. Lloyd, Penarth Corporal G. T. Williams, Swansea (formerly of the London and Provincial Bank, Barry) Troope-r W. A. John, St. Fagan's; and Trooper S. Rooney, St. Andrew's. Trooper C. L. Ferrier, Penarth, of the Gloucester Imperial Yeomanry, arrived at the same time. At the Barracks Colonel Wyndham Quin addressed to them a few words of welcome. It had been a great pleasure to him, he said, to com- mand them. They had all behaved themselves extremely well, both in camp and in the presence of the enemy, and he would always look back upon the time in which he had command over them as the proudest in his life. It was with J great regret that he had to leave them. They knew he had stopped with them as long as he possibly could.
PREFERMENT FOR A BARRY CLERGYMAN. The Lord Bishop of Llandaff has offered the vacant living of Bonvilstone, near Barry, to the Rev J. de la Gait DujHeaume, B.A., formerly curate of Barry and Porthkerry, and at present locum tenens at Penmark, by whom the offer has been accepted.

REVIEW OF PUBLICATIONS. "THE LADY'S WORLD." The July number of The Lady's World," price 3d (Horace Marshall and Son, 125, Fleet-street, London), contains many interesting articles as well as carefully selected fiction from the well- known writers, Lilian Q. Couch, Katherine Tynan, and Violet Hunt, while the serial tale, entitled "A Race for a Wife," keeps up its thrilling interest. Fashion is represented by dainty summer gowns, blouses, and cycling costumes, and a practical lesson is given in making a summer shirt._ Some pretty collars, ruffles, and fichus, with instructions how to make them at home, will be found very useful to the clever-fingered girl who wishes to make her pin money go "as far" as possible. Novel decorations for piano key-boards will help to beguile the holiday hours on hot afternoons. Millinery, underwear, cockery, health, and etiquette are all seasonable and instructive. House beautiful deals upon the furnishing of staircases in an artistic manner, while Society and Drama contains a large number of the newest portraits of well-known people. Ranee Leytcn contributes a most interesting article upon the "Ideal Woman," and withal we consider the July "Lady's World to be a most excellent number. A paper pattern of a dainty summer shirt is given away. This magazine is certainly marvellous value for threepence.
( BARRY SCHOOL BOARD. At the monthly meeting of the Barry School Board held on Thursday evening, the 4th instant, the members in attendance were Mr J. Lowdon, J.P. (chairman), Captain R. Davies (deputy chairman), Rev J. Byrne, Rev W. Williams, Dr W. Lloyd Edwards, Dr Livingstone, Mr D. Lloyd, and Mr Peter Wright, with Mr Gwyn Morris (clerk), and Mr R. Treharne Rees (deputy clerk). THE NEW PRIZE SCHEME. The reports of the several committees held during the pass month having been passed, an amended prize scheme was submitted.-—Dr Lloyd Edwards, in moving its adoption. said the distri- bution of prizes had had the effect of improving the attendance of scholars materially, and he thought the Board could congratulate itself on this fact.-Dr Living-stone seconded.-Rev W. Williams and Mr Lloyd opposed, the former contending that the prize scheme was not the success claimed for it, inasmuch as it deterred and discouraged many who were not well enough or otherwise prevented from attending regularly. The scheme was adopted by six votes to two. SIR JOHN BRUNNER'S BILL. The Chairman explained that Sir John Brunner's Bill was intended to enable School Boards to carry on the work of evening schools and technical instruction classes.—Mr Wright thought this Bill had been withdrawn in favour of the new Education Bill of the Government.—The Chairman was not aware that it had been withdrawn.-Rev W. Williams said under the new Bill it still remained that no one over 16 years of age could be admitted to the evening schools, so that as a Board they would be in the same position as they were before.—The Board agreed, on the motion of Dr Lloyd Edwards, to petition Parliament in favour of Sir John Brunner's Bill. THE SCHOOL STAFF. Miss C. Townsend resigned her post on the teaching staff of Romilly-road School, and Miss John, of Holton-road Infants, was appointed in her place.—Miss Helen Williams, Holton-road Boys, also sent in her resignation. THE OFFICES CONTRACT. It was resolved that the sum of d6200 be paid to, Messrs Profit and Davies, contractors, on account of the new oSices and the contractors and architect (Mr George Thomas), were directed to attend the next meeting with reference to the proposed exercise of the penalty clause of the contract in consequence of the delay by the former in completing the work. THE ANNUAL GENERAL SUMMER HOLIDAY. Mr F. T. Kingston applied on behalf of the Barry Sunday School Union, that the schools be closed on Wednesday, the 17th instant, on the occasion of the annual general summer holiday in the town, when a great demonstration of the Sunday Schools will take place.—This was agreed to. THE MINUTES. Three tenders were received for the printing of the minutes of the Board for the ensuing year, and that of Mr Llewellyn, printer, at is 9d per page, was accepted. THE BOARD'S VACATION. It was decided that no meeting be held in connection with the Board during the month of August. TECHNICAL CLASSES. The Chairman ruled that the intended motion of the Rev W. Williams, that the Board proceed forthwith to make arrangements with the County Council for carrying on the Technical Classes during the coming session on the same lines as in previous sessions, was not is; order, being, according to the Cockerton Judgment, illegal, and the Board would still be liable to be surcharged for what- ever expenditure was made in connection there- with, notwithstanding the fact that such expenditure would be met by a grant from the County Council. He (Mr Lowdon) suggested, however, that individual gentlemen, should, with the approval of the County Council, constitute a local committee to carry on the classes, otherwise the action of th-e Board would prove to be ultra viresi—Rev W- Williams felt if the first Bill of the Government had been passed they would be recognised by the County Council to carry on the work as heretofore, but the Board having under- taken the work by resolution it was their duty to relinquish the same by resolution. He hoped, however, the use of the schools would be granted for the purpose As, usual,—Captain R. Davies said if a body of gentlemen undertook to carry on the work, and the consent of the County Council was obtained for the purpose, they might then apply for the-use of the schools, and he did not see there would be any d'iiEeulty.—Pr Lloyd Edwards reviewed the past action of the Board in the matter-The Chairman said the Bill at present before the House would not give the Board the power it required.—The motion was, therefore, not proceeded with. TEACHING OF WELSH. The Chairman also declared out of order, in face of the Board's existing resolution in the matter, the Rev W. Williams further intended motion that the Board instruct the head teachers of boys and girls' departments to make arrangements for introducing the teaching of Welsh during the next school year in the lowest classes, as is already done in one boys' department, and that at the same time provision be made for continuing the instruction, in this subject so that eventually it may result in being taught in every class of each department. The resolution at present in force, Mr Lowdon pointed out, gave the head teachers power to frame their own time tables, the same to conform as much as possible with each other, and that the teaching of any second language be left to the discretion of the head teachers.—Rev W. Williams: You have got me there again, Mr Chairman, on a technical point. (Laughter). THE RECENT MAGISTERIAL CRITICISM. Captain R. Davies, referring to the recent remarks from the local justices'bench by Mr T- R. Thompson with reference to children taking flowers to school to their teachers, said the justices were informed on good authority that this was the case, and Mr Thompson called atten- tion to the fact, because the eagerness of children to take flowers to the teachers might induce them to steal the flowers for the purpose. The magis- trate had no desire to cast any undue aspersion on the teachers, and he (Captain Davies) thought it, would be well if the Board asked the teachers not to receive flowers from the children in future.- Dr Lloyd Edwards and Dr Livingstone considered that the matter should be allowed to rest where it was. Enough they felt had been said on both sides. THE LATE ALDERMAN JONES C RICTUS. Dr Lloyd Edwards moved a vote of deep regret at the death of Alderman J. Jones Griffiths a gentleman who had done so much on behalf'of education, both in the county and in the Barry district. Captain R. Davies seconded, and it was unanimously carried. This concluded the business.
