THE WORLD'S GOSSIP. Except for a Council which the Queen will hold at Balmoral early next month, there will now be no Court functions of any kind until after Her Majesty's return to Windsor in November, when there must be an Investiture of the Barh. St. Michael and St. George, and the Indian Orders, which will be a very large affair, as there are heavy arrears. The Queen was to have held an Investi- ture at Windsor in July, but it was postponed to Osborne, and finally was put off indefinitely, to the great discomfiture of recent recipients of honours, The splendid Highland air acted almost imme- diately as a restorative, and the Queen has now, practically speaking, shaken off her attack of low spirits, and seems to have well-nigh forgotten the troubles incidental to the recent change of Govern- ment. Balmoral has at all times proved a safe cure" to Her Majesty but its magical effects have never, perhaps, been so speedily manifest a6 on the present occasion. Comfortably ensconced in her favourite retreat, with her family of three generations around her, her cottagers to visit, and the simple daily round of quiet walks and drives, that she so infinitely prefers to all sorts of public function and State ceremonial, the Queen is fully determined not only to make the most of her holiday, but to extend it to the utmost possible limit. Has the Queen also turned temperance reformer ? There is a story going the rounds at Aberdeen, which, it is said, came from Balmoral, that Iler Majesty would not appoint a yoang man to be one of her pipers unless he was a teetotaller. There are so many temptations in the position," the Queen is reported to have said. If the story ie true, which I doubt, it indicates an entirely new departure. Some of the Queen's servants have not hitherto been teetotallers. Let my readers bear in the mind what I now tell them from information received by me from a private, but most authentic and high source— namely, that a series of events of terrible import- ance is likely to take place in Russia. Perhaps before Christmas the vast Russian Empire may have experienced changes which will affect it in all its length and breadth. In the meantime the poor Duchess of Edinburgh is in a terrible state of excitement for. as she expressed it not long ago to a German lady of exalted rank. The longer I live away from my beloved Russia, the more I love it." It is now pretty generally admitted, even by the two illustrious personages chiefly concerned. that the idea that the marriage of English Alfred with Russian Marie would cause a feeling of friendship between Russia and England has long since proved itself a fable. A good deal of amused comment has been evoked in Court circles by the highly diplomatic strata- gem whereby Mr. Gladstone has contrived at the came time to conciliate the Queen and to surmount his embarrassments with regard to the disposal of offices in the Royal Household. The desirability of getting on the right side of the Sovereign had evidently been pondered by him so by a real master-stroke of astuteness, he cut the Gordian knot by placing all the appointments absolutely at Her Majesty's disposal. Ths Queen was delighted, her attached friend the Duchess of Buecl^ugh retained her appointment, and the wily Premier -who seems for tnis occasion to have taken a leaf from Lord Beaconsfield's book—at once escaped from his dilemma and went up enormously in the Royal regard. And yet there are those who say that the G.O.M. is no good at diplomacy The new Attorney-General played a pleasant little practical joke the other day at a sale of Southdowns in Surrey. Among the buyers was a Mr. Hatton, who had been a somewhat prominent bidder, and at the dinne^, which followed the sale the Tory squires indulged in some wholly unre- strained abuse of the G.O.M. Mr. Hatton" quietly stood this for some time, and then opened fire, and fairly raked the table with his wit, logic, and ridicule in defence of the policy of the present Prime Minister. It was not until after dinner that the confounded and discomfitted squires were able to solace themselves for their defeat in the know- ledge that their opponent was none other than Sir Charles Russell. A marble tablet, in the form of a medallion, with the life-size bust of Daniel O'Connell, has been affixed to the wall of an old palazzo in a street in Genoa leading from the sea to Piazzi Bancbi and the Exchange. This palazzo, now let in offices. was formerly an hotel, and it was there that O'Connell lived for some time and died. A most romantic marriage has just taken place at Como. The bridegroom was Count Pavlo Cam- pello. the widower of Princess Marie Buonaparte, and the bride the eighteenth-year-old daughter of the Liberal ex-Premier, M. Gualo. Count Cam- pello, who is over 50 years of age, is very conser- vative and Catholic, and all his views and opinions are in direct opposition to those of the Gualo family. The bond of union is the study of archa;ology, to which both husband and wife are devotedly attached. It is said that they first met in the catacombs of St. Calvit. which they both visited daily, and that the girl's beauty and The intelligent remarks she made to her mother on the surroundings captivated the Count. Despite the fact that in a few months' time the kindly Baroness Burdett-Coutts will have entered upon her eightieth year she has determined, with extraordinary courage, to undertake a journey to the Chicago Exhibition, in which she has special interest, and not only will this wonderful old lady visit the World's Fair," and take part in the opening ceremonial, but, while she is about it, she will actually visit numerous other American cities and sights. Among other offices which she will perform is that of opening the Baltimore Railway early in October. Lady Burdett-Couts is an inde- fatigable worker. She answers a great deal of her correspondence with her own hand. personally visits the many charities in which she is interested, is a most genial hostess, a constant theatre-goer, and a great reader, besides which she finds time to follow all the new movements of the day, and oftimes to contribute essays on philanthropic, and other subjects to magazines. If you kiss a lady in South America without so much as saying, By your leave," you will probably get yourself into trouble, particularly if the lady's husband or large brother happens to be around. An impulsive Chilian," who recently embraced a lady in the Plaza at Valparaiso, has been sentenced to ninety day's imprisonment. which seems a long, long time for a mere kiss. In this country for the same period he might have robbed his employer, have half killed a police con- stable in the execution of his duty, oreven enjoyed the luxury of dancing on his wife with hob-nailed boots. Things are so unequal ? That there is no better trade going than printing, if only you can get Dlenty of work is shown by the fact that the late Mr. Robert Cradock Nichols, the well-known typographer, of Parliament-street, died worth upwards of £ 170,000 in personal pro- perty alone Of course much of the work was what is technically known as "Parliamentary." That is bills. evidence taken before committees, and other "fat" of that character, the price being hierh, and the money always certain. Among the bequests was a sum of JE 10,000 each to a large number of nephews and great-nephews and nieces. It is to be noted, apropos of Mr. Nichols, that he was one of the few men who stood by the sculptor, Richard Belt, during his troubles-partly because. no doubt, Belt was at one time a boy in Mr. Nichols' printing office; in fact", it was while he was engaged in that capactity, I believe, that his talent first manifested itself.
FLOBTLINH —FOB TIm TEETH AND BEEATH.—A few drops of the liquid "Florilitie" sprinkled on a wet tooth-brush produces a pleasant lather, which thoroughly cleanses the teeth from all parasites or impurities, hardens the gums, prevents tartar, stops decay, gives to the teeth a peculiar pearly-whiteness, and a delightful fragrance to the breath. It removes all unpleasant odour arising from decayed teeth or tobacco smoke. "The "Fragrant Floriline." beingcom- posed in part of Honey and sweet herbs, is delicious to the taste, and the greatest toilet discovery of the age. Price 25. 6d., of all Chemists and Perfumers.

BARRY (U.D.) SCHOOL BOARD, The usual fortnightly meeting of the Barry (U.D.) School Board was held at the Holton Board Schools on Monday afternoon last, Mr. J. Lowdon in the chair. There were also present Dr. O'Donnell, Captain Davies, Dr. Lloyd-Edwards, and Messrs. W. H. Lewis (clerk). Treharne Rees (clerk's deputy), George Thomas (architect), and W. Seig (attendance officer). PROPOSED EVENING CLASSES. A letter was read from Mr. Thorpe, the secretary of the District Teachers' Association, to the effect that the association were endeavouring to obtain the information desired by the Board as to the probable number that would attend the proposed evening classes. The question was. therefore, de- ferred until the next meeting of the Board. DRAWING EXAMINATION. The Clerk intimated that a letter had been re- ceived from Col. Glancy to the effect that the pro- bable date of the drawing examination at the Holton Board Schools would be the 26th Septem- ber. The Board had already been informed that the examinations would take place at Cadoxton and Barry on the 29th inst.-Dr. O'Donnell and Mr. John Rees were deputed to attend at Cadox- ton Captain Davies and the Rev. J. Price at Barry and Mr. Lowdon, Dr. Lloyd-Edwards, and General Lee, at Holton. DRAWING GRANTS. A letter was read from the Education Depart- ment stating that the payment for passes in the elementary stages of freehand, perspective, and model drawing, after September the 1st. 1893. would be £1 for a first class, and 10s. for a 2nd class on account of each pupil teacher or ex-standard scholar who had been taught drawing in the school. b b AX INCORRIGIBLE BOY. Captain Davies mentioned the case of a boy named David James. whose parents could do nothing with him. The father was a most steady and respectable man, and. though the child was only nine years old, the boy was quite beyond his control. The father had been fined once or twice by the magistrates for the boy's non-attendance, and it was most hard that he should have to go on paying these fines. The magistrates, however, would not send any boys away. He could mention, the case of a boy named Clarke, who had proved to be quite incorrigible, but who had never been sent away. His step-father had appeared before the magistrates, and had been reprimanded and fined by them, though he was not to blame for Clarke's misconduct. Dr. O'Donnell observed it seemed incredible that young boys of seven or eight years of age had gone past the parents' control. Captain Davies It's nothing strange in this district. The Chairman The Education Department are going to introduce a Bill, giving larger powers to the Board. I am afraid we can do nothing before then. ATTENDAXCE OFFICER'S REPORT. Mr. W. Seig's \the Attendance Officer) report showed that 760 absentees hid been visited during the last fortnight. 96 notices had been served, and 14 summonses had been issued but not heard. The average attendance during the last month had been 76*4 per cent., and for the last week over 8(j per cent. Two or three per cent. had been absent on account of scarlet fever. THEFT OF CLOTHES. The Chairman said that many complaints were being constantly made that the children in the Infante' School lost articles of clothing. Probabljv in many cases, as the children were very small, many articles were taken by the wroug children. in mistake. He would therefore suggest that the Clerk be instructed to write to the head teachers of the Infants. School, drawing their attention to these complaints, to desire them to see that one or two teachers should be present in the oloak-rooms when the children were preparing to go home, and to lock the outer door during school hours. The Attendance Officer One of the parents complained the other day at the Police Court that she had lost pounds' worth in that way. The Chairman's suggestion was then adopted. THE NEW SCHOOLS AT J;AURY. On the motion of Dr. O'Donnell, seconded by Dr. Lloyd-Edwards, the seal of the Board was affixed to a mortgage by the Public Loan Com- missioners for £ 3,>90. on the new Girls' School at Barry. The Architect (MR Geo. Thomas) reported that the north wall had not been built by the con- tractor according to the specifications, though the deviation was not serious.-It was decided to allow the wall to remain, on condition that the contractor should make the necessary allowance, and without prejudice to the existing contract. FIXAXCE. Bills were passed for £ 90 to Mr. D. Davies, the contractor of the Cadoxton Schools, and £400 to Mr. Rutter, the contractor for the Barry Girls' School.-The Clerk stated that £ 1,000 was owing to the Board from Cadoxton parish, £ 300 from Merthyr Dovan. and £ 39 from Barry.—The Clerk, was instructed to write to the overseers of each parish demanding instant payment, or. in the event of failing to do do so, to threaten immediate legal proceedings. MISCELLANEOUS. A number of parents, whose children attended irregularly, appeared before the Board.—It was decidell to advertise for tenders for the best house coal in the SOUTH WALES STAR and other papers.—It was decided to advertise in- the Cardiff papers for an ex-P.T., to commence duties on October 8.- A letter from Mr. Higman was read complaining of the escape of gas in one room, and the moisture on the wall in another.-—-Several re- quisitions from teachers were passed.—This was all the business of importance.
A NEW CAISSON AT BARRY DOCK. The second large iron caisson, constructed by the Barry Graving Dock and Engineering Com- pany, for use at the New Commercial Graving Dock. which is in course of construction by the Barry Railways Company, along the western side of the deep water entrance at Barry Dock, was successfully launched on Friday morning at the Graving Dock Works in the presence of several hundred spectators, who lined the dock side and other points of 'vantage in the neighbourhood. Amongst those present to witness the ceremony were Mr. Edmund Handcock (chairman of the Barry Graving Dock Company), Mr. S. Johnson. Mr. John Lowdon (general manager), Captain Porter. R.E. (Bombay). Captain R. Davies (dock- master), and Mr. T. Lowdon, M.I.M.E.. M.I.N.A., Cardiff and Barry Dock (under whose personal supervision the caisson was designed and con- structed). Mr. R. Coles (superintendent), Mr. J. Dyer and Miss Dyer. Mr. J. Williams (head fore- man of the iron and ship department), Mr. D. Lowdon, Mr. James Lowdon. Mr. J. J. Moon, Mr. Webb, Mr. Wareham, Rev. J. Dunstan, Mr. John Robinson. &c., &c. Everything having been got ready for the launch, and the signal to let go having been given by Mr. Lowdon, the general manager, the caisson glided gracefully along the ways for a distance of up- wards of 50ft.. and alighted in the water with perfect precision, the launch in every respect being a most successful one. The weight of the caisson when she entered the water was 212 tons. including ballast, but 12ft. more of superstructure is to be added to the work, rendering the weight when completed about 380 tons. The dimensions of the caisson are :—Length of face, 54ft. 3in.; maximum length. 63ft.; height, 34ft.: and it is the entire depth of the Graving Dock. It has 29in. inlet valves, one 7in. drain valve, and two sluices entire depth of the Graving Dock. It has 29in. inlet valves, one Pin. drain valve, and two sluices 36in. by 27in.
