LOCAL CRICKET. ) CADOXTON-BARRY v. MR. R. B. MILLER'S XI. On Saturday last the above teams met at the Witchill Ground, in be ntifnl weather. The pitch was excelient, but owing to the sun coming after Friday's rain, the wicket was slightly in favour of the bowlers. Mr Miller won the toss, and sent Livesay and Davies to face the bowling of Jake- man and Llewellyn. Livesaj started very well, but unfortunately got out to a brilliant catch at the wicket by Dr Budge, standing back to Jakeman. After this reverse runs came very slowly, both bowlers keeping excellent lengths, and the side were finally dismissed for the small score of 22. Jakf-man took seven wickets for nine rnns, and Llewellyn four for ten, besides bowling three no-balls. Jakeman took four wickets in five balls, doing the hat trick. On Cadoxton-Barry aroing to the wicket runs came very fast, T. L Thomas, Llewellyn, Waters, Atcheson, Fear, and Adams all getting double figures, despite frequent changes in the bowling. The innings eventually realised 92 runs. Livesay (seven wickets for 39 runs) and Davies (three for 10) were the most successful bowlers. Scores :— successful bowlers. Scores :— MR MILLER'S TEAM. S.

Favoured with ideal cricket weather, a large crowd assembled at Barry Island on Saturday last to witness the encounter between Barry and Mid-Rhondda. The visitors went to the wickets first and compiled 70 runs. Barry responded with 106 for the loss of only four wickota, thus winning easily. R. Williams (44), Si Jenkins (28), and the Rev H. H. Stewart (18) were the chief contributors to the home score. Williams was in fine form, and drove with great power and- judgment. Scores:— MID-RHONDDA. R.C. Walter, b S. Jenkins. 3 W.

On Saturday last Cadoxton-Barry 2nds visited Tylorstown, but although the season is young and members are keen, still they were obliged to go away two short. The home team won the toss, and went in to bat first against the bowling of Garner and Alexander. Garner started exceed- ingly well, taking two wickets for three runs. Alexander and Humphreys also did well, taking taking two wickets for 14 and two for four runs respectively. The fielding was keen, E. 0 Donnell doing exceedingly well. Tylorstown were all out for 42. Humphreys and F. O'Donnell started the visitors' innings, but made no stand. None of the Barry team, with the exception of R VV Hall and Alexander, seeded able to do any hing with the ball. The result was that the visitors were all out for 36. Tylorstown, on batting again, were disposed of for 16 runs, Humphries being especially conspicuous, taking six wici- tits for two runs whilst Garner took three for three. With this more hopeful aspect Barry again went in and knocked up 46 runs, thus winning the match by 24 runs, Garner being top scorer with 15. The visitiors' bowling and fielding was very good indeed but the batting on the whole was a weak display. Scores:— TYLORSTOWN. 1st innings. 2nd innings. C. Jones, c Hall, b Garner 0 b Humphreys 2 T.

Played at Barry Island, before a large crowd of spectators, on Saturday last. The Villa batted first, and scored 31 runs, of which T. White contributed a useful 14. The Island replied with 82 (McLennon 14). In their second innings the Villa scored 49 runs for eight wickets and declared. With 40 minutes to play the homesters went in, and made 33 for eight wickets when time was called. Four of the Island wickets went down for no runs. It was exceedingly unlucky for the Villa, as another five minutes would have meant victory for them. F. Dure bowled well for the losers, taking five wickets for 12 runs in the first innings, and seven wickets for seven runs in the second. F. S. Grogan also bowled well for the Island, performing the 44 hat trick," taking four wickets in one over. Scores: BARRY VILLA. 1st Innings. p 2nd Innings. T. White, b F. Grogan. 14 o J.

A GRATEFUL MAN. Mr Frederick Sadler, Freshford Mills, near Bath, Somerset, has published a letter of thanks which reads as follows :— I wish to express my sincere thanks to Dodd's Kidney Pills for what they have done for me. My chief complaint was Kidney Trouble, which I contracted from a cold. I suffered for several months my back and head ached. I was always tired and languid, and frequently dizzy. I had cramps in the muscles and my limbs were heavy I with a dragging sensation across the loins. At last I saw the advertisement of Dodd's Kidney Pills and determined to try them. Very soon after commencing their use, I found myself growing better. I used to feel in my work as though I could drop with pains across my back and loins, but I am glad to say that Dodd's Kidney Pills cured me of it all and that I am now able to follow my daily work with ease and pleasure. I think that others who are suffering as I was from Kidney Troubles and that tired feeling ought to know the value of Dodd's Kidney Pills, and I am writing this letter in the hope that it may help someone else. I will introduce them wherever I have a chance, for they are really a marvel of medicine."

ATHLETIC CHATTER. What a change, The weather last Saturday afternoon was ideal from the point of view of a cricketer^, and was valued to a greater extent after theitteacherous climatic conditions of the previous ;\tfe^kV Was it possible to arrange for, such a delightful sunshine andsach a lovely azure sky every Saturday ?" was the one thought of the Barry cricketer. Barry Villa were defeated, by one run. Barry Islandtriumphedovertheamatt Villa team last Saturday, this; being the lead held by the homesters on the first innings of, the match.. *• The Villa defended the stumps first, and got together 31 runs, 14 of which came off the bat of T. White. The Island went one better, and scored 32. The Villa again went in, and made 49 for the loss of nine wickets, Dure hitting finely for 23. Things did not go so well with the Islanders at the start, four of their best men being out with the score at nil. ■ They brightened up, however, and when time was called the score stood at 35 runs, and eight wickets down. The Island, therefore, won as stated. ♦ F. S. Grogan bowled well for the Island, and acoomplished the hat trick in the first innings, taking another wicket with the last ball of the over. F. Dure was in great form with the leather for the Villa. Mid-Rhondda were visitors to Barry Island on Saturday last to meet the redoubtable Barry XI. Contrary to expectation, the visitors made the respectable score of 70 runs, and had their trund- ling been as good as their batting they might have won. It was in this department that they were beaten, and beaten heavily. » Si Jenkins and R. Williams opened Barry's innings, and 72 runs had been registered before they were separated. The former player made 28, chiefly from pretty outs to the boundary and the latter player obtained his 44 from huge on drives and hits to leg. A I The Rector (Rev H. H. Stewart) played a good innings, hitting up 18 in a very short time. When stumps were drawn Barry had scored 106 runs for the loss of four wickets, thus winning very comfortably. « When are Dinas Powis going to win a match ? They were badly beaten by Canton at home last Saturday by 109 runs to 34. Next Saturday Cadoxton-Barry me3t the crack Cardiff team, and we shall then have an oppor- tunity of gauging the respective merits of Dinas Powis and the Cadoiton eleven. The Buttrills Fields were the scene of busy operations. There were playing-Barry Y.M.C.A. v Cardiff Intermediate 01 Boys Barry Congrega- tionals v East Moors (Cardiff) and Barry Villa Seconds v Hannah-street Congregationals (Cardiff). In these encounters, the Y.M.C.A. were the only home team which proved victorious. So different was the display of the Y.M.C.A. from some previous matches, that, I am inclined to think, their form varies with the weather. However, last Saturday their victory was an easy one. The visitors won the toss and elected to bat first. Over after over was bowled, but very few runs were forthcoming, and ultimately the eleven players were dismissed for 25 ruM, holding I the field close on two hours. the field close on two hours. I On going to the wickets the Y.M.C.A. soon passed the ciVitor* tot-il. •*?!>! whfn" th« time had been played oat. 63 runs hyJ bemi knocked up for six wickets, B. Bunford and R Lewis scoring' 16 and 10 runs respectively, the forn.er making some good hits. Tne Y.M.C.A. Club welcome the return of the brothers J. and W. Vickery, who have been away from the district for several matches. Both are good trnndlers, and the reverses of the Y.M.C.A. this season can be attributed to a certain extent to want of bowlers. Next Saturday the Y.M.C.A. play Barry Island, who defeated Barry Villa lest Saturday by one run. The match is to be played at the Island, and the Y.M.C.A.. I am informed intend to make the journey with good intentions. Cadoxton-Uarry had an easy victory over Mr R. B. Miller's team last Saturday by 92 to 22 runs. Several of the winning side reached double figures, but not one of the vanquished did so. « ¥ R. Jakeman's bowling for Cadoxton was ex- cellent. He performed the hat trick, and took seven wickets for ten runs. « On the other hand, S. Livesay, who, by the way, I hear, is an ex-London County man, bowled well for Mr Miller's Xi. <* B. Bunford, one of the Y.M.C.A. team, is a stylish batsman, and knocks off his score in easy fashion. Last Saturday he hit up 16 runs for his side.
Original Poctrp. THE MAN BEFORE THE MAST. Dear land friends, when at times you stand In groups upon the shore, And watch a ship or steamer O'er the waters proudly soar, You may think a merchant seaman's got An easy pleasant life, And that his lot is happy- Quite free from care and strife. But ah, you are mistaken, friends, I have to let yon know, And some of his cruel grievances I now will try to show. So that in future when you see Some stately ship glide past. You'll know some of the troubles Of the Man before the Mast. Before he signs the owners try To cut his wages down, And if he speaks the shipping clerk Will darkly on him frown; They'll call him a sea lawyer If he only says a word, And ten to one won't sign him, Surely friends, this is absurd. He doesn't get sufficient pay To keep his babes and wife, While those he makes the money for Are wealthy in this life; And in the joys and sweets of earth Their lot is daily oast, Hard earned by the labour Of the Man before the Mast. The articles are then read out In domineering voice, He's told that while on board the ship His conduct must be nioe; He must obey superiors On board, in boats, on shore, Or if he don't the punishment He'll get will be most sore. He musn't dare to quit the ship without the j chief mate's leave, And if be takes a glass too much he logging will receive; In short, if any wrong is done the blame is on him cast, For they treat men worsa than dogs in British ships before the Mast. He's scolded when he's at the wheel, Though those who at him jeer If put to it not half as well As him the ship could steer, And if he hasn't eagle eyes When upon the look-out. And see alight before them They will at him loudly shout; ¡ And when his watch is ended, And he ought to get below, He's very often kept on deck The sails to reef or stow. His work is never ended, And his labour's never past, Men are nothing but machines In merohant ships before the mast. While every trade is clamouring For an eight hours' day ashore, A poor sailor often works Just sixteen out of twenty-four. And should his ship at night perhaps Be going to sail away It don't make any difference He has to work all day, Or should his ship in port At one or two a.m. arrive, Incredulous he's roused again From sleep at half-past five. And even on a Sunday, When his toil should all be past, He has to work till eight o'clock, The Man before the Mast. Oh, friends, you've no idea Of his wrongs that I could name, And surely in this Empire Of Great Britain 'tis a shame, To treat the men that sail our ships In such a shabby way; It is monstrous and inhuman, It is cruel and wrong, I aay, I challenge contradiction, Of my words I'm not afraid. And I say Jack is neglected By the British Board of Trade But I hope another Plimsoll Will right his wrongs at last, And that justice will be done to men That sail before the mast. Oh men of dear old England, Men of Scotland, Ireland, Wales, When the tempest in its violence Round your coasts most loudly rails, Think upon your friends the sailors Out amidst the ocean's roar, And who toil to bring their vessels With their cargoes safe to shore And don't despise a sailor If he is a little wild And foolish when he comes on shore, He's but an ocean child But when his spree is ended, And his boozing has gone past, The best fellow in the world Is the Man before the Mast.

IN BED SIXTEEN WEEKS. RESTORED TO HEALTH BY VENO'S SEAWEED TONIC, THE GREATEST CURA- TIVE MEDICINE IN GREAT BRITAIN. Mrs H. H. Holn.es, writing from Herborn Villa, Baker-street, Weston-super-Mare, says: — Mr Veno, Dear Sir,—You will remember me writing to you in January, from Crowle. I came here three weeks ago for a change. I took VENO'S SEAWEED TONIC up to leaving. I am quite a wonder; everyone says I must have nine li es no one ever thought I could get better. I believe it was your Seaweed Tonic, with God's blessing, that cured me, and I feel very thankful indeed to you. I have told lots of people, and got several to take it, and shall tell all whom I come in contact with. You will remember that I was given up by two doctors, and was so bad and weak that I could hardly move, and was sixteen weeks in bed. I have only taken one or two doses of your tonic since I came here I will always keep it by me. I have given it to several people, and it acts like magic. You may use my letter if you choose my home address is Cross Street, Crowle, Doncaster. VENO'S SEAWEED TONIC is used in hospitals and by doctors, it being the only standard preparation con- taining the strengthening, healing, and purifying properties of Seaweed combined with other vegetable extracts.

JIMMY SHIELDS' PIERROTS AT BARRY ISLAND. Mr Jimmy Shields'Pierrots were advertised to open at Barry Island last evening, and we are sure this popular comedian's troupe will receive the patronage he deserves for his amusing entertain. ments. Weather permitting, Mr Shields intends to have entertainments at 11 a.m., 3 p.m., and 7 p.m. throughout the summer season, and we trust his new stand (at the Brake Terminus) will prove a success. All the artistes have been secured, and we are informed they are first-class pel formers. That remains to be seen but if the entertainment is up to last year's standard, we are sure the inhabitants and visitors alike will be interested and highly amused.
