BARRY v. PENARTH 2NDS. Barry first eleven opened their season proper on Saturday afternoon last, when they engaged Penarth Second Eleven on the Island enclosure, before an interested crowd, Through A. Osborne, the Glamorgan County player, having thrown in his lot with Barry, and the services of S. M. Clarke having been secured as professional, Barry seniors have received an impetus which promises to continue. Winning the toss, Barry elected to bat on a perfect wicket, and A. Osborne and Si Jenkins were first men in. The game opened promisingly, both men batting fairly free, Osborne making some pretty strokes, but when he had scored 15 he was clean bowled by F. Allen. H. Thomas, who followed was obviously not at ease, and failed to break his" duck." Jenkins and C. Kirby became associated, but the latter only obtained six before lie, too, was bowled by Allen, who was particularly fatal. Then Si Jenkins was excellently caught and bowled by Dyke, after compiling 21. Clarke and J. R. Johnson got together, but the latter was unfortunately run out. F. Sadler joined Clarke, but the pro. withdrew when he had scored 12, having helped to bring the score up to 65. R. Williams followed, and opened with a six, but in trying to repeat the performance he had his stumps scattered. Sadler was playing good cricket, and made several fine boundaries, although at 25 he gave an easy chance, but escaped. Under the apprehension that he was bowled, Sadler com- menced to leave the wickets, and was promptly stumped, the innings closing for a total of 133 runs. On returning to the pavilion, Sadler met with an enthusiastic reception, having obtained 45 runs, and during the whole time gave only one chance. Penarth started against this formidable total in an indifferent manner, Osborne's bowling puzzling and disconcerting the batsmen, and the only players who made any attempt to play true cricket were J. T. Dewar (13 runs), O. Watkins (11), and D. L. Griffiths (11). The whole side were out for 60 runs, undoubtedly due to the excellent trundling of Osborne, who secured six wickets at the small cost of 15 runs. Si Jenkins obtained two for 38, and Fred Sadler one wicket without having a ball hit off him. Scores:- BARRY. A. Osborne (captain), b F. Allen 15 Si Jenkins, c and b Dyke 21 H. Thomas, b Allen 0 C.

Curtis, D.S.J.T., in the chair. The District Secretary gave his report, showing a membership of 1,037, and £320 in the funeral fund, being an increase of 30 members and £10. The D.S.J.T. gave a gratifying account of work done in the district, drawing attention to the infantile section, in which mem- bers can be insured from one month old, with the same benefits:as insurance societies.
LOSS OF A HUSBAND AT BARRY. In the Court of Appeal (before the Master of the Rolls and Lords Justices Cozens-Hardy and Matthew), the hearing took place of an appeal under the Workmen's Compensation Act in the case of Henshaw v. the Barry Railway Company. The appeal was by the Company from the award of the County Court Judge at Pontypridd. The appellant, now the respondent, was Mrs Mary Jane Henshaw, widow of a Barry engine-driver, whose case it was understood was fought by the A.S.R.S. She claimed A300 compensation for tha loss of her husband. The death of the husband, William Henry Henshaw, took place under some. what strange circumstances on October 6th last at Tonteg Junction. Deceased was in charge of an engine drawing an empty train of trucks proceed- ing to Hafod. At the junction the train was allowed on the same line as another train of empties and pitwood going to Treforest Junction. At the time a heavy storm was raging in the Bristol Channel; the wind was blowing with hurricane force, and at the inquest it was said some of the signal lights were blown out. The electric lights in the signal cabin, however, betokening signal lights, were still in. The trains were, as stated, allowed in at the same time, and as a result the driver lost his life. The County Court Judge gave an award in favour of the widow, and the Company now appealed, and asked that the order made by his Honour on January 18th last be set aside, and an award entered for them, on the ground that the learned County Court Judge was wrong in law as to his finding that there was no evidence on which he could make the award and that he was wrong in law in holding that it was unnecessary for the applicant to give any evidence, and it was for the respondents to satisfy him, if they could, that the applicant was not entitled to the award.—The appeal was dismissed with costs.
BRITISH AND FOREIGN PIANOS. The Cardiff Corporation lately decided to pur- chase a pianoforte for the Mansion House, and invited local firms to submit instruments for comparison, The instrument selected was an overstrung upright iron grand by John Broadwood and Sons, Bent in by Messrs R.

THE FINANCES OF BARRY. ECHO OF THE RECENT LEGAL PROCEEDINGS. OBJECTION RAISED BY MR LOVAT-FRASER. The monthly meeting of the Finance Committee of the Barry District Council was held on Friday afternoon last, Mr J. A. Manaton, J.P., presiding pro tern. The other members present were Messrs J. A. Lovat-Fraser, W. J. Williams, O'McCann, J. E. Levers, James Jones, and D. Lloyd.—For the position of chairman for the ensuing year. Mr Levers moved that Mr W. J. Williams bere-appointed but there was no seconder.—Mr Williams proposed Mr James Jones, and Mr Lovat-Fraser having seconded, Mr Jones declined to allow his name to be submitted.—Mr Fraser, therefore, moved that Mr McCann be elected, and Mr Lloyd seconded.- As an amendment, Mr Williams submitted Mr Lloyd's name, and Mr Levers seconded, but Mr Lloyd withdrew.-A further amendment by Mr Williams, that Mr Levers be chairman, met with no seconder, and Mr McCann was elected to the position by five votes to one, Mr Levers being the only member against.-Mr W. J. Williams: It is all cut and dried.—Mr Manaton Do you think so? It was decided, on the motion of Mr W. J. Williams, seconded by Mr Lovat-Fraser, to hold the future meetings of the Committee in the even- ing, at seven o'clock. In connection with the passing of accounts, Mr Lovat-Fraser drew attention to the fact that the counsel's brief fee in the action, Mrs F. G. Jones v. the Council, was £ 10 10s. Surely," remarked Mr Fraser, that is preposterous."—The Clerk (Mr T. B. Tordoff) Well, he had to come from London otherwise he would have been paid the ordinary fee of A5 5s.—Mr Fraser And now he'll get A 12 6s out of the Council; the fee is far too high.—Mr W. J. Williams How does it com- pare with Mr Arthur Hughes' charges ? — Mr Eraser It has nothing to do with Mr Arthur Hugbes' charges.—Mr Manaton Has the bill been taxed ?—The Clerk We cannot tax our own bills.—Mr Fraser Whoever heard of Mr Llewelyn Williams at Barry ? As a representative of the ratepayers, I am here to protest against paying this £ 12. 6s.—The Clerk It is only the bare fee of Mr Llewelyn Williams there were no solicitor's fees to tax in this case. Mr Williams would not take the case for less.—Mr Fraser: There are half-a-dozen men in Cardiff who would have taken the case for much less, and they are quite as capable as Mr Williams.—Mr W. J. Williams We are not here to discuss that.—Mr Fraser It is the duty of the Council to carry out :its work as economically as possible. What is the use of bringing accounts here if we are not to discuss them ?-Mr Manaton Mr Fraser being a gentle- man at the Bar ought to know.—Mr Fraser I shall certainly express my opinion Mr Llewelyn Williams was selected because he supports a certain policy.—Mr W. J. Williams I object to that remark.—Mr Eraser It is obvious, nevertheless. Was Mr Lloyd George consulted as to who should be selected ?—Mr Manaton We are drifting.—Mr W. J. Williams Mr Fraser questions Mr Llewelyn Williams' ability. He en- quired who had heard of him.—Mr Fraser: Yes, as local barrister.-The question then dropped. Mr W. J. Williams asked as to what was the estimated amount of grants still in the hands of the Board of Education not paid for last year.- Mr C. B. Brown (accountant) replied that there were only the balances to be received, and it was impossible to say what the actual amount of the balances would come to. A report of the treasurer's balances was pre- sented, in which it was pointed out that £3,420 were due to the treasurer on the district fund, but there was a balance of £8,807 in hand in connec- tion with the general loans account, and after meeting all expenses for the month, there would be a balance in hand of £6,640. Of this, however, there was £ 4,000 not invested.-The Chairman Can we obtain four per cent. on the JE4,000 ?-The Clerk I cannot say. It was ultimately resolved that the Clerk apply for power to borrow loans for the erection of new schools, &c. A letter was read from the Town Clerk of New- port enquiring if the Barry District Council would consider the advisability of becoming affiliated to the South Wales Branch of the Municipal Insur- ance Society. The object of the Society was to enable municipalities to insure their own proper- ties. The letter also stated that a conference would be held at Newport to discuss the whole question, and asking this Council to send repre- sentatives thereto.-The Chairman It seems rather a good thing, but where is the capital to come from I—Mr Manaton It will have to grow. -The Clerk: It appears to be a guaranteed capital. -Mr Manaton Seeing that it will not commit us in any way, I move that the Chairman and Mr Lovat-Fraser be appointed to attend the confer- ence.—Mr James Jones seconded, and' it was unanimously carried. A sub-committee was appointed to consider the question of additional office accommodation, Messrs J. C. Meggitt, J. Milward, D. Morgan, J. A. Manatan, James Jones, and J. E. Levers being selected for the purpose. This was all the public business.
HAVE YOU CATARRH? EVERY FOURTH PERSON YOU MEET HAS IT. AN INSIDIOUS AND DANGEROUS DISEASE. WORSE THAN BRONCHITIS. Catarrh commences frequently by running at the nose sets up inflammation of the mucus membrane of the nose and throat, followed by a stopped up feeling in the nose, and dropping of mucus in the throat. It partially stops up the air vesicles of the lungs, inflames the bronchial surface, setsupcatarrhal bronchitis or catarrhal asthma, accompanied by a dry or loose cough, difficulty in breathing, with unpleas- ant hawking and expectorating. The mucus thus secreted works its way down the alimentary canal to the stomach, catarrh of the stomach and intestines following. It then becomes a persistent constitu- tional disease, both dangerous and disagreeable, leaving the patient very susceptible to cold, and every additional cold aggravates the symptoms until it affects the hearing, and gradually the sense of smell and taste. VENO'S LIGHTNING COUGH CURE is the most efficient remedy for this disagreeable complaint. It acts directly upon the mucus surface, relieves the irritation, clears the bronchial tubes and air vesicles, and relieves the stopped up feeling in the nose. It is infinitely superior to any local treatment. It acts constitutionally, clears catarrh thoroughly out of the system you feel better the first day you begin to breathe freely through the nose, and rest comfortably at night. Ask for Veno's Lightning Cough Cure, 91d, 1,1119, and 2/9 at Chemists everywhere.
DEATH OF A BARRY CRIMEAN VETERAN. The death is reported of a respected resident of Barry Dock in the person of William Neagle, a Crimean Veteran. He passed away at Reading, where he had gone to spend the Easter holidays with members of his family. Neagle joined the Army at the age of 19, in the early stage of the Russian War, and before he was 21 he lost his leg by a cannon shot in storming the quarries before Sebastopol. He was discharged on a pension of Is per day. About 12 or 18 months ago the Government gave an extra 6d per day to Crimean and Indian Mutiny veterans, and thenceforward until death Neagle got Is 6daday. Deceased was a widower, and leaves several sons and daughters.

BARRY PUBLIC LIBRARIES I COMMITTEE. INTERESTING ANNUAL REPORT BY THE LIBRARIAN. THE RECENT ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS. The first monthly meeting of the Barry Public Libraries' Committee after the annual meeting of the District Council was held on Monday evening last, Mr J. A. Manaton, J.P., presiding pro tern. The other members present were Messrs J. A. Lovat-Fraser, D. Lloyd, W. R. Lee, S. R. Jones, T. Davies, D. Morgan, J. E. Levers, W. J. Williams, J. LowdoD, J. P., D. W. Roberts, Dr W. Lloyd Edwards, and W. Paterson. Mr D. W. Roberts was unanimously re-elected to the chair for the ensuing year. Mr J. Roch, the librarian, presented his monthly report, which showed that the total number of 1 books issued during April was 5.748, of which 3,409 were works of fiction, representing an average of 68 per cent. The total number of books issued to school children was 761. The number of ordinary borrowers registered was 5,400, and the weekly average of books issued 1,466. Mr Roch also presented his annual report up to the end of March. He said that during the year the library had been opened 307 times, and 60.575 books were issued, a daily average of 215, 432 being the largest number of books issued during any one day. There had been a slight decrease in the reading of fiction and juvenile literature, and he was pleased to note an increase in the reading of the better class of literature. There were also issued 461 new tickets to ordinary borrowers, and 30 books had been presented to the library during the year. He regretted that owing to want of funds the Committee had been unable to purchase new books. To school children 7,347 books had been issued during the year. The total expenditure was JS873, but on March 31st there was a credit balance at the bank of je215 18s Id.—It was decided to have the report printed. The Chairman, Messrs J. O. Davies, Dr Lloyd Edwards, W. Paterson, J. A. Lovat-Fraser, J. Lowdon, and Miss E. P. Hughes were appointed a sub-committee to deal with the question of pro- viding new books for the Central Library. Instructions were given to advertise for tenders for binding magazines, etc. Mr Paterson asked in what year the contract was signed for the erection of the New Central Reading Rooms?—The Clerk (Mr T. B, Tordoff): At the end of 1903.—Mr Paterson What was the total cost of the arbitration proceedings to the Council ?-The Clerk At first it was £970, but it was afterwards reduced to £ 873,—Mr Paterson What is the contractor's position in regard to the arbitrator's decision as to the foundations, and what is the extra financial cost to him in carrying out the terms of the award ?-The Clerk He is entitled to £ 676 5s for extra work done in the foundations ?-Mr Paterson Do the committee contemplate closing the library and reading rooms in consequence of the arbitration proceedings ? -The Chairman We have not considered it, but it is a question that will have to be faced. We have not heard from Mr Carnegie yet. Mr Paterson said some people believed that the cost of the arbitration proceedings was not justified, but the majority of the members were satisfied that they had adopted the only honourable way out of the difficulty.-Mr Lowdon said the Committee resorted to arbitration to compel the builder to take down the structure and lay the foundations afresh. They might, it was true, have saved a little if they had taken the advice of the architects, and requested the contractor to underpin the building with brickwork and cement.—Mr Paterson suggested that the Building Sub-committee should endeavour to obtain from the architects some idea as to the approximate additional cost to the con- tractor for building extra foundations.—Mr Lee I don't see we should gain any material advantage. -Mr Levers Our own clerk of works could give us that informataion. Personally I should think between £ 200 and £ 300.—It was decided to obtain the information from the clerk of works. The rest of the business was of a private character.

GRAND ENTERTAINMENT AND FARCE AT BARRY DOCKS. IN AID OF ST. MARY'S CHURCH. A very successful entertainment and farce, entitled, Ici on Parle Francais," was given at St. Mary's Hall, Barry Docks, on Monday evening last, but the audience was not as large as the excellence of the performance warranted. The hall had been tastefully decorated for the occasion. The miscellaneous part of the programme was opened by a nicely-rendered tenor solo by Mr H. Seddon, being followed by a side-splitting item by Mr Chris. Griffiths, whose splendidly delivered stump speech created roars of laughter. Then Mrs McKillop, who poreesses a rich soprano voice, beautifully rendered a solo, and she responded with equal effect to an enthusiastic encore. Mr Seddon received a hearty reception for another sweet rendition and Miss Wilde feelingly sang the solo, Mary," being accompanied on the pianoforte by Lady Wilde. The first portion of the programme fittingly concluded with a laugh- able item by "The Girls of Miss Milligan's School," in which the following took part: —Miss Audrey Clarke (mistress), Florence Causer, Agnes Jones, Gladys Hurford, Grace Bray, Elsie Causer, Rettie Thomas, Dorothy McDonald, Olive McDonald, Annie Thomas, Dorothy Jones, and Lily Thomas. After the interval, the farce was given, and it proved a great success. The characters were well chosen, and suited their respective parts to perfection. The acting was extremely good, and we heartily congratulate all concerned upon the pronounced success of the evening's entertainment. The characters were taken as follows:—Major Regulus Rattan, Mr Rimell; Victor Dubois, Mr Hole Mr Spriggins, Mr E. H. Davies Mrs Spriggins, Mrs Longdon Angelina (their daughter), Miss Phillips Julia (wife of Major Rattan), Miss Mabel Phillips; Anna Maria (a maid of all work), Mrs Wilde. Mr E. H. Davies was really excellent as Mr Spriggins; Mrs Wilde, as Anna Maria, made an ideal servant, the humorous personations of both being very amusing. All the performers did their parts, in fact, remarkably well, affording the utmost delight to the audience. The scene of the play is the interior of a house in a fashionable watering place, the residence of Mr Spriggins, who decides to make a bit during the summer by keeping boarders, and places the following notice in his window-" lci on Parle Francais" ("French spoken here"). Monsieur Dubois arrives with a lady (who proves to be Julia, the wife of Major Rattan), and enquires in French for lodgings. Great amusement is caused by Mr Spriggins endeavouring to converse with the inquirer, the former possessing but a thin smatter- ing of French. It happens that Angelina, daughter of Mr Spriggins, had been to Paris, and there met Monsieur Dubois, who was deeply in love with her. He now meets her again, and declares his love. The lodgings were let, when the servant left because she was refused an increase of wages. Thus Mr and Mrs Spriggins, the latter of whom claimed to have descended from a titled family, were left to do the household duties. After some time Major Rattan discovers his wife, and that Mr and Mrs Spriggins have given their consent to Monsieur Dubois to wed their daughter Angelina. Mr Spriggins having decided to take in no more lodgers, Anna Maria, the servant, returns with her baggage. This con- cludes the performance. The evening's enjoyment was brought to a close with the singing of the National Anthem. The entertainment and farce were repeated on National Anthem.

NERVOUSNESS. I 59, Libra-road, Roman-road, Bow, London, E. Mr Editor,-Sir-Please allow me to say a word in praise of Gwilym Evans' Quinine Bitters. I have been suffering from Nervousness and Debility. and have tried many remedies before, but I have never known a specific so remarkable in its effects as the Quinine Bitters. It seems to build up the exhausted Nervous System by a slow cumulative process, which imparts force and vitality to all the organs of life. I consider it of inestimable value to all nervous sufferers.—Yours, &c., M. J. VAUGHAN. See that the name Gwilym Evans is on stamp, label, and bottle. There are numerous imitations. —
