MRS. (TIUJNDY'S JOTTINGS. It is not true that any person in the Barry district has been invited by the Royal Commis- sion to give evidence as to alleged illegalities in the service of the Established Church in the town. Mr and Mrs Oliver Jones have arrived at 39, Ashley-gardens. London, from Fonmon Castle, Glamorgan. Major-General Lee, The Mount, Dinas Powis, has, I am pleased to state, sufficiently recovered from his recent severe illness to be able to preside at last Monday's sitting of Barry Police Court. To-day (Thursday) is Empire Day, and the national emblems and other flags are flying over the public buildings, schools, and from many private residences in the Barry district. An eisteddfod will also be held during the day in connection with each of the Council Schools, that at St. Helen's Roman Catholic School to take place on Friday evening, and the children in each instance will be addressed on the greatness, importance, and responsibility of Empire. X The traffic receipts on the Barry Railway, including the Vale of Glamorgan Railway, last week amounted to £ 9,945, a decrease compared with the corresponding period of last year of £4,336. The aggregate for the present year is £291,279, an increase of £ 9,660. The flowing tide seems to be with the Church life of Barry. One of the monthly magazines of the town states Baptisms have lately been per- formed with some difficulty, owing to there being no water supply. This difficulty has now been overcome, the water having been laid on." There are good prospects of a successful regatt a being held at Barry on Wednesday, the 17th of August. Major-General Lee, The Mount, Dinaa Powis, proceeded to London last Wednesday to consult a medical specialist. • In view of the intended visit of the King to Swansea in July to lay the foundation stone of the new dock, an effort is being made to induce his Majesty to call at Barry, and lay the founda- tion stone of a building in connection with an institution of which the King is patron. • In the opinion of Miss E. P. Hughes, M.A., Barry, late principal of Cambridge Training College for Secondary Teachers, the chief blot on the Welsh Intermediate Schools is the way in which the dual schools have not been kept in any sense of the word dual, but have practically become mixed schools, fu the great detriment of the girls and of the women teachers. Miss Hughes believes profoundly in mixed education, but she considers it should be really mixed-that the head should not always be a man. The Norwegian steamship Fancy, 830 tons, a regular trader between Cardiff and Bordeaux, and belonging to Messrs Neilson and Begocness, of Tonsberg, was wrecked last Sunday on Nash Sands. The vessel was bound from Bordeaux to Barry with a cargo of pitwood for Messrs T. P. Thomas and Company, of Barry Docks. Fortunately, all hands were saved. # Animproved brake service between Southern down-road and Southerndown, in connection with the Barry Company's trains, has been commenced, and will continue throughout the summer months. w 4' "Ohl I do hope there are no Pro-Boers amongst the teachers," was the lament of an anxious parent as she entered one of the Council Sohools in the Barry districton Empire Day.The woman obviously -is a loyalist and patriot. it The committee appointed by the Barry Chamber of Trade to go into the matter of getting out a pictorial poster have put the matter in hand, and have approved of a sketch which will shortly be issued. All interested in Friendly Society work are informed that the annual meeting of the Barry District Friendly Societies' Council will be held next Wednesday evening, at 7.30, at the Glamorgan Restaurant, Barry Docks, when the advisabilty of continuing the Council will be considered. The President (Mr R. N. Davies) appeals to all members of Friendly Societies to make a special effort to be present. Are the inhabitants of the Barry district going to illuminate their houses to-night (Thursday), Empire Day ?" I am continually asked. My answer is, "I hope they will." The children of St. Helen's Roman Catholic School, Barry Docks, accompanied by the Rev Father Byrne, and the head master, Mr J. Wood, took part in the annual Festival of Corpus Christi at the Castle Grounds, Cardiff, to-day (Thursday). The weather was favourable, and the children, carrying flowers, were quite picturesque in their white dresses.
