OF THE DOINGS lOUND THE TOWNS. Whit-Monday is now upon us, and I have much pleasure in asking every reader of the Star to make a special point of enjoying the holiday. I tave -j qstyreturned from a visit to Barry Island, and can assure those who think of going out of. the district for pleasure during the holiday that they cannot do better than patronise one of the prettiest spots in the Bristol Channel. I think that Barry Island witfc. its sandy bay cannot be beaten. Just now the fields on the Island are a sight for those who delight ie. looking upon nature in its fullest beauty. On certain portions of the Island the ground is quite wlÚte with the bloom of the wild roses, ajid I notified that those who have visited there recently have helped to make their homes beautiful by carrying away bunchy of these pretty flowers. '\< How lonely a couple of ladies appeared to be the other day in the neighbourhood of the Cliffs near Barry. They seemed to be anxious to get away from everyone else, and I learn that their sole object in doing so was to indulge in a puff of their favourite weed. Yes, my friends, there are ladies here who smoke cigarettes. i i, ■a I am told that certain parties last week threatened to go on the parish for water" unless there was rain very soon. Two young ladies spent a very pleasant after- noon one day last week on Cadoxton Common, but they were at a loss to know the time. As there was not a policeman handy, one expressed a hope that she would hear the Town Clock strike. But she didn't. # I think that it is wrong to add insult to injury. A friend of mine was at the Dock on Saturday last, and heard one individual, after asking a coal trimmer what he was looking so black about, wanted to know if he had used Sunlight Soap." There is an old saying that you can take a horse to the water, but you cannot make it drink. The reasonableness of this argument is plain to all— only in this case it refers to the moke-who happen to pass along Weston-road any evening for the past couple of weeks. A boy was to have been seen vainly endeavouring to get on the back of a Jerusalem pony, and, notwithstanding all the 4i gentle" persuasion he could command, the animal positively refused, and added force to his argument by means of his legs. :f.. "The early bird catches the worm." Yes, this saying appears to be very true just now. If you want to have it explained ask any of the residents in the neighbourhood of Cadoxton Common. I have heard it whispered that there is to be two interesting weddings at Whitsun. One will take place at the Barry Parish Church on Whit- Monday. and the other on Tuesday at the Cadox- ton Old Parish Church. I shall be there to see. Are public officials allowed to do as they please on the Common? I should think that they are, judging from the quantity of rubbish that is turned at Cadoxtsn almost daily. Major-General Lee evidently enjoys the beauties of the Common at Cadoxton, and he is to be seen taking a walk there before the Local Board meetin. s. :r. -,c Don't those dressmakers from the neighbourhood z, of Main-street enjoy themselves during the dinner hour. I passed by one day and saw three of them taking exercise by running races, but I thought every^minute to see one of them come to grief as they rushed down over a bank. Now, my little dears, please take care of yourselves for Homebody's sake. The turn-over at the Barry Dock Post Office fre- quently amounts to £ 290 per day. "Margaret Jones" has been lying under No. 4 Tip at Barry Dock. :i: The death of the unfortunate lad, Chris. Rees Mancell, of Jenner-strest, Cadoxton, who was killed by an accident at the Lady Windsor Deep Water Lock at Barry last week, affords another striking exemplification of the advantages of life assurance, for, although he had only paid two pence on account of his newly-issued policy, his poor widowed mother is entitled to the useful sum of £ 9 15s. at his death from the Wesleyan Life Assurance Society, the local agent of which is Mr. Ivor James, of Kenilworth-road, Cadoxton. # Mr. J. Morris, the venerable magistrates' clerk of the Dinas Powis Petty Sessional District, con- ducted the business at the police court at Barry Dock for tha first time Thursday, and ex- pressed satisfaction at thecapacity and comfort of the new building. The managing owner of the steamer Lord Erne, 8 500 tons dead weight, which coaled at Barry Dock for Bombay, is Sir Daniel Dickson, the first lord mayor of Belfast. Did you see the man take the trap out of the bag ?" said General Lee at the Barry Dock Police Court on Thursday. The letter-box at the new town sub-Post Office at Pyke-street. Barry Dock, is to be cleared nine times daily and twice on Sundays at hours cor- responding with the dispatches and deliveries from the central office at Barry Dock. The hoars of attendance at the new Office will be from eight a.m. to eight p.m. on week days. Captain C. Bigg and F. S. Thomas, of the 2nd Glamorgan Volunteer Artillery, have been granted the honorary rank of major. It is singular to find two brothers high-sheriffs at the same time. Mr. Robert Forrest is high- sheriff of Glamorgan, and his brother is high- sheriff of Lanarkshire. The London Gazette contains a notice issued by the Registrar of Joint Stock Companies to the effect that at the expiration of three months from last Tuesday the Barry and Cardiff Electric Light and Power Supply Company (Limited) will be ,struck off the register and dissolved. ;Ie A customer is said to have entered a shop at !-Cadoxton-Barry on Saturday evening and asked for a packet of consecrated cocoa. She meant concentrated." » Hi I would draw the attention of my readers'to the fact that a new Limited Liability Company, carry- ing on business at Barry Dock, has been registered. -I refer to the County Drug Company (Limited), Molton-road, Barry Dock. Save you seen the latest Stat- novelty.? It is in the form of a novel rent-book compiled on the 'latest and most improved lines. No it won't pay your -rent, but-there you had better ask your landlord to get you one. Only Id., and it is registered at Stationers' Hall. ¥ Hi Last week 104,191 tons 2 cwt. of coal was shipped at Barry Dock. The Lord Erne took away 7^897 tons 10 cwt., and the highest quantities of coal shipped in single cargoes from Barry Dock were on board the Idar, 6,500 tons, and the British Queen, 6.300 tons. Mr.. Lowdoa, the popular chairman of the Barry School Board, is gone to Lucerne, Switzerland., for a short holiday. I hope he will thoroughly enjoy himself, as there is not a harder worked public man in the district than Mr. Lowdon. The fausty one," in his ravings, talks of splits in two local societies. The poor fellow must have been suffering from a nightmare when he had such an absurd dream. The Garrick Society's performance on Wed- nesday week was an uncommonly good one. Those who were present so much enjoyed them- selves, and have talked so much amongst those who were unable to be present, that there is a widespread wish that the performance should be repeated. # # For various reasons the 11 Garrick Society feel that it would be impossible to give another per- formance at present, but they are hoping shortly to commence the study of one of Shakespear's plays, which will be staged early next season. 'f: At their first performance last Wednesday week it was reckoned by the scene-shifters that they had one of the best attendances that had ever filled the theatre. Mr. F. W. Cornish and Mr. A. S. Holmes, the hon. sec3. of the "Garrick" Histrionic Society hope they will be able to insert the balance-sheet in our next issue. ;(: A prominent feature of the annual chief-con- stable's inspection of county police at Cardiff last Saturday was a spirited address to the men by Miss Gertrude Jenner, of The Typicca, Wenvoe, who complimented the constabulary upon their general efficiency and smartness, but condemned as useless) the practice of drilling the menin a military manner. The police in the Barry district declare life is not worth living just now. There is simply nothing doing They dolefully tell the Press representatives when they pay their periodical visits to the stations. Touching references were made by the Rev. Canon Allen M.A., at Barry Parish Church last Sunday evening to the death of one of the members, Mr. C. C. Thorn, which occurred with such painful suddenness on the previous Friday afternoon. A bit off, that! A Cadoxton gentleman, on being called upon one evening this week by two or three friends, informed them he was sorry he could not ask them in, as he had a visitor in the house. A visitor, aye," replied one of the callers; "who may he be?" "0, only Lord 's nephew," observed the gentleman. 11 Only Lord 's nephew l' chorused the callers, as they laughingly bade the honoured gentleman Good-night." Barry, undoubtedly, is the most pleasant sea- side resort along the Bristol Channel.-Railway Times. There is a firm of shopkeepers at Barry Dock whose motto is "God be with us," and judging from the degree of prosperity they enjoy, I am inclined to believe that their p"a,yer is liberally answered. Although there are four medical gentlemen on the Barry District School Board, one of the local teachers goes to Bristol for her medicine. j The Lord-Lieutenant and High-sheriff of Gla- morganshire are directors of the Barry Co. The Wc •stern Mail predicts that, amongst other elements of greatness, Johnny Roberts, of Cardiff, intends joining the Barry Directorate. That will be when the local press stop making mountains out of moleheaps. Johnny, to my mind, is a hero without the heroism. Cynonfardd's lecture on Elocution at Barry last week was the last he will deliver in the Old country" previous to his return to the home of his adoption in the United States. A large number of signatures were obtained at several chapels and churches in this district, on Sunday last to petitions in favour of the Local Veto Bill. They have now been sent to the proper quarters. :J: According to the Cadoxton Parish Magazine, there have been 21 children baptised from the 27th of March to the 20th of April. I have pleasure in mentioning (and I think everyone will join me in wishing that it'at once may come in handy) that a very swagger umbrella was presented by the St. Mary's Church party to the stage manager of the Cadoxton-Barry His- trionic Society, and also a special letter thanking all the members for their services. As a rule, stage managers are subjected to anything but nice treatment; in fact, I wonder why amateurs have stage managers at all. What rot I am agreeably surprised to find the Church thinks otherwise. A Barry pressman this week received, by way of a number of postage stamps, his amount of II un- earned increment." consequent upon the collapse of Pearson's Missing Word Competition." 0 ü o The Rev. H. Graham Payn. pastor of the Wes- leyan Churches, Barry Dock and Barry, has this week been, appointed assistant-secretary to the Cardiff and Swansea Wesleyan District Synol. :I< Dr. Kelly, of Barry, will probably be appointed one of the lecturers in connection with the St. John's Ambulance Association under the pro- visions of the Local Government in Glamorgan shire. Police-sergeant Evans, of Barry. takes a great deal of interest in ambulance work, and being the holder, both of a medal and the certificates of proficiency connected therewith, someone has facetiously suggested he is the "St. John's" Ambulance Association. The name of a certain official in connection with the late ambulance class at Barry contains the somewhat suggestive initials of D. 0. D. and being a Welshman—and a Cardi to boot-a friendly punster declares.his parents once thought having the child christened Belo D # jk A certain minister of the Gospel, looated not a Sabbath Day's journey from Holton-road, Barry Dock, preaches with a "still small voice which contrasts strangely with the exceptionally fine and robust physique which he proudly possesses. ;fc Something new in locomotion. AJady requested an official at the Barry Dock Railway Station recently to keen a certain train waiting for her, because she did not believe in hurrying herself. >I< I know a young man at Barry who, after writing a letter goes for some ivy to place therein. A very suggestive idea. The first weekly meeting of the Rev. W. Williams.s Welsh class was held last Friday even- ing in the vestrv-room of Zion Welsh Calviniatic Methodist Chapel, Cadoxton, a. noticable feature being the number of local school teachers and pressmen who attended the same. Petitions in opposition to the Local Veto Bill are being signed by customers at different hotels in the Barry district, there being a feeling prevalent 11 that the measure is an unwarrantable attempt to ] trespass upon the liberty of the subject. Vf- A correspondent, signing himself Counter Jumper," writes to me this week asking with much concern what has become of the Barry District Shop Assistants' Union. Echo (or the Star) answers What Is the head dead ? Is the body dead ? Is the whole thing dead ? Shop assistants, please don't answer all together. A Barry railway man quarrelled with his mate last week over a small matter in dispute, and the quarrel resulted in blows beinf exchanged. The railway man would not care so much about the affair had it not been for the fact that his girl knew all about it. III Railway porter to sailor: "Bring some cigaia with you when you come this way again." Or a bit of 'ard," asked another. Or a drop of Florida water echoed some one else. Jf The children in connection with the different schools in Cadoxton parish will be entitled to a treat on Whitmonday. a On Trinity Sunday the Rev. J. H. Evans, late of Llanishen, the new curate of Cadoxton Parish will commence his ministrations in connection with the Welsh Church Mission in Holton-road. A waggish correspondent writes suggesting that a description of the breed of the horses employed for drawing the bathing machines on Whitmore Sands, Barry Island, would form very interesting reading to the public. They do take Beecham's Pills ? The services of the Barry Dock R.A.O .B. Institute Brass Band has been secured for the anniversary of the Druids' Lodge, Barry Dock, on the 21st of June. The Barry trains will run to and fro every half hour on Whit-Monday afternoon, enabling visitors to attend the sports at the Witchill Grounds, Cadoxton, and picnic parties to spend the occasion on Barry Island. Barry railway officials were this week supplied with their annual "rigsout," and they are toffs, too. I hear that the Barry Male Voice Party intend competing at the- Caerphilly Eisteddfod on Whit- Monday, under the able leadership of Mr. D. Farr. The party since its existence has been very success- ful. The present competition will be a remarkably keen one. I hear that there is one National Eisteddfod Party going to take part in the struggle. Nevertheless, if the Barry boys will pull together and rally round their conductor we are sure they will make a bold fight. Next Sunday after the morning meeting a full practice will be held at the Welsh Congregational Chapel, High-street, Barry, when Mr. Gwilym Thomas, Porth, the cele- brated bass soloist, will be in attendance. In the evening, at the Welsh Baptist Chapel, Barry Dock, the final rehearsal will be held. All who are anxious to hear the party will do well to take this opportunity, and everyone will be admitted on pay- ment of a nominal fee in order to defray a portion, of the party's expenses. We sincerely and most heartily wish the party success in their endeavours. ) A The auditors appointed by the vestries of the different parishes in the Barry district have re- ported that the accounts of the Burial Board have been kept by the clerk (Mr. J. A. Hughes) in a careful and accurate manner. The actualtworking expensesi in connection with the Barry District Burial Board amount to only £ 60 or £ 70 a year. The Sunday School of the Bible Christian Church, Barry Dock, will celebrate Whitsun- Monday by holding their annual demonstration, and in the anent of the weather proving favour- able tea will be provided and sports indulged in on a field near Tynewydd, kindly by Mr. J. J. Williams. The new Marine Hotel, Barry Island will be opened on Whin-Monday. < -Superfluity of education has again asserted itself in the Barry district. A customer entered a shop at Cadoxton one evening this week, and modestly requested to be supplied with half-a- pound of gogginoozle cheese. After meditating vacantly for a moment the shop assistant informed the young woman that it was useless keeping Gorgonzola at Barry because there was no call for it!. I am sorry to hear that Dr. Prosser Evans, who has been for some months in our midst as assistant to Dr. Neale, of Barry, has just taken his de- parture. Dr. Evans, who held the post of assist- ant medical officer to the Local Board, was held i. much respect, and gooil wishes follow him to his new home. Mrs. Marsh, one of the agents for the <5tar at Barry Dock, has a taking story to tell about a holidaying collier from the Rhondda Valley arriving at a certain railway station, the ticket inspector dime round and asked to be shown tickets. The occupants of a certain compartment complied with the exception of our hero of the black diamond, who seemed to be at a loss to know what had become of his passport. Was it a tourist's or an ordinary," quaried the inspector. The collier looked dumb, but after a pause .1 he ejaculated-" Tories! man; what I know about Tories, I'm a Radical." ¥ The half-yearly meetings of the Bethel English Calvinistic Methodist Chapel, Court-road, Cadoxton, will be held next Sunday. I hope our chapel- going friends will bear the fact in mind. The programmes for the Cadoxton-Barry Histrionic Society performances on Wednesday last were printed at the Star office. I an5 in- formed that the Hall was lent gratuitously by Mr. Barnett. Mrs. W. H. Miller, of Barry, has kindly presented St. Mary's Church, Barry Dock, with a handsome lectern frontal. V >Ie The performance of the Histrionic Society has given every satisfaction, but some people think the reference to the rival society was not exactly the thing. The Young Wales Party will not go to Llanwit- Major on Monday next as intended, but a party of members ar.d friends have arranged a walking tour to Llanfetthyn, where there are said to be some interesting antiquities. They will leave the Old Elm Tree at the Village at 1 p.m. i* Don't forget the sports at the Witchill Grounds on Whit-Monday, everything promises to be grand success. On Saturday the Barry Detachment of the Sub- marine Miners proceeded to Penarth Dock, and proceeding down channel on board the Miner underwent a course of drill. > I am told that the fence on Cadoxton Common has been cut down. Many of my readers will be pleased to learn that Mr. Morgan, of St. Fagan's, is about commencing business on his own account in this district. He has leased the coal business of the Barry and Cadoxton Coal Company, and is determined to make it a success. He will not only supply his customers with good coal, but at a reasonable price. # A Welsh lodge of Good Templars will be opened this (Thursday) evening at the Welsh Independent Chapel, Holton-road, Barry Dock. M; The first depositor to make his appearance at Lloyd's new bank, Barry Dock, upon the doors being thrown open for the first time last Monday morning, was Mr. James Price, of the Model Bakery, Holton-road. but the amount of the deposit is a secret hermetically sealed. He was determined to do it at any Price. PENARTH Saturday's Bally Graphic gave an illustration of the Living Chess as played at Penarth last week. Mr. George Taylor, of Penarth, has applied for a patent for improvements in apparatus for and con- nected with the loading and discharging vessels and transfer of railway wagons, coal, and other substances from one place or level to another. I am informed that there is a clerk at Penarth who is not only fond of partaking of a glass of milk and a bun in a confectioner's shop there, but he had been seen throwing kisses across the counter to one of the young ladies. He appears to be very fond of tarts. Mr. A. J. Williams, M.P., has presented- to the House of Commons a petition in favour of the Local Veto Bill from the inhabitants of Penarth. Penarth people love to imitate Barry and deter- mined not to be out done, have gone in for a bran' new steam road roller entirely on their own account. The town was en fete when the puffing little monster arrived the other day. =. I am glad to hear the members of the Glamorgan County Police Quoit Club (of which there are several prominent members from the Barry dis- trict, and the secretary is Mr. J. Rees, of Cardiff. son of Inspector Rees, of the Barry Dock Central Police Station) having become affiliated with the South Wales and Monmouthshire Quoit Associa- tion, of which Mr. T. Ward, of Barry, is secretary, must, according to rules, provide themselves with a playground, and the representatives of the Windsor Estate are accordingly in communication with as to securing a piece of land in the beauti- fully shaded valley (immediately above the rail- way bridge) between Cogan and Penarth. I wish the club success, and that the union secretary will not ivard off the new members, but take them under his sheltering wing. DINAS POWIS. Two interesting marriages will shortly take place at St. Andrew's Church. Dinas Powis, one of the daughters of the esteemed rector, Canon Edwards, being engaged to Colonel Hill, R.A., and another, the youngest, to the Rev. R. Usher, B.A., curate of St. Mary's, Darry Dock. WENVOE. The IT estern Mail says --A,liss Jenner has given a certificate of efficiency to the Penarth magis- trates. She declares that the manner in which the intricacies of legislation were unwoven at the Penarth Police-court compared very favourably with anything she had seen in the High Courts of Justice," and certainly Miss Jenner ought to know. Since the same High Courts are so clogged with work, it would be well, after such high commen- dation, if the judges were told they might farm a couple of hundred cases to the Penarth magis- trates. T :4: BONVILSTONE. I notice among the list of subscribers to the Great Western Colliery Widows' and Orphans' Relief Fund at Pontypridd the name of Miss Maud M. Williams, of Bonvilstone; the sum of £ 15 is against her name.
THE STAR OF BARRY I.O.G.T. The usual weekly meeting of the above Lodge was held at -the Sea View Restaurant on Tuesday last., Bro. J. T. Sherwood, C.T., in the chair.

FORMATION OF A ST. JOlIN'S J AMBULANCE BRIGADE AT BARRY. DINNER AT BARRY DOCK. On Wednesday evening the members of the Ambulance Classes, together with a few outside gentlemen, sat down to dinner at Harry's Restaurant. Capt. Davies, the respected dock- master, presided, there being also present Mr. D. T. Alexander (chairman of the Barry Chamber of Commerce), Rev. Jabez Honey, Inspector Bell (Bute Docks), Mr. D. Roberts, Dr. Kelly, Mr. F. P. Jones-Lloyd, Mr. E. S. Johnson, Mr. Rees (Barry Schools). Sergt. Evans (Barry Police Station), Mr. F. Cornish, Mr. P. Skyrme, Mr. Collins, Mr. Harley, Mr. Ramsey, Mr. Arnold, Mr. Found, Mr. Smith-Jones (sec. Barry Chamber of Trade), Mr. Panniers., Mr. Fennell, Mr. Blainey, Police-con- stables Ralph, Griffiths, and Hawkins, Mr. Howard, Mr. Adams, Mr. Wilkinson, Mr. Collins, Mr. Sloper, Mr. Lewis, P.C. David O. Davies (hon. sec.), &c. After grace had been said by the Rev. J. Honey, and full justice was done to the sub- stantial repast served by the Misses Harry, The Chairman proposed the loyal and patriotic toasts, and letters of apology, regretting inability to be present, were read from Mr. Richard Evans (General Manager Barry Company), Mr. John Lowdon, and Dr. Livingstone. Mr. Smith Jones proposed The Ministers of Religion," for whom the Rev. Jabez Honey ably responded. Mr. Rees proposed The Medical Profession," and in the course of his speech remarked on the won- derful scientific progress the medical profession had made during the last twenty years. He thought that when the medical profession had attained its real acme of kaowlede the people would live on to 150 and 200 years. (Laughter.) Dr. Kelly responded. Mr. Arnold next proposed The Visitors," coupled with the name of Mr. D. T. Alexander. (Hear, hear.) Mr. D. T. Alexander thanked the company for coupling his name with the toast, and for the hearty reception they had given it. It afforded him a considerable amount of pleasure to be present. His sentiments were very strongly in favour of supporting anything which would be beneficial to the Barry district, and he looked upon that movement for the formation of a brigade, as suggested, as of the greatest benefit to the district. (Applause.) A movement of that kind appeared to him to be one entitled to every one's support —(hear, hear)-because it was a movement which, if carried out successfully, must be, in a district of that kind, of the greatest possible advantage- (hear, hear)-more especially as they had there a very large working population-a population con- tinually subject to great risks. If they, amongst themselves, educated themselves with the object that, when accidents occurred, they might relieve pain and suffering, they would assist in minimis- ing a great amount of suffering to their fellow human beings. (Hear, hear.) Anything he could do in any shape or form to further their interests he should be pleased to do. (Applause.) Mr. F. Cornish and Mr. P. Skyrme also responded on behalf of the Press. Mr. E. S. Johnson having sung in fine style The Death of Nelson," Dr. Kelly proposed the toast of the St. John's Ambulance Society." The gathering they had there that evening was one far exceeding the utmost hopes they had originally entertained. They thought they would have at least a couple of dozen, whereas every seat was occupied. It was a striking proof of the popularity of the movement, the inception, he might say. of which they were celebrating that evening. During the very short time he had been resident there four classes had been started and passed through. Dr. Livingstone very successfully conducted two of those classes, and himself the other two. (Applause.) With the attention, the kindness, and the perseverance that lie had invariably met with from the members of his first and second class, those classes had been successful, and 32 members had obtained;, their certificates. (Hear, hear.) The movement was first initiated with the Red Cross Association, established with the intention of affording aid to the wounded and sick on the actual field of battle, because it was found that the staffs of surgeons, or the medical aids, of the countries contending were altogether inadequate to the call made upon them. At the conclusion of the campaigns the Order of the Red Cross was conferred upon those who had taken part in the work, and the crosses (one of which Dr. Kelly wore). Of course, there upon the peaceful shores of England, they were not going to hear the roar of the cannons loaded with shot and shell. No, thank Heaven, he hoped the peaceful shores of England would be for ever spared the horrors of the field of battle, If they only saw the effect of one fusilade he believed it would cure them for ever, even of read- ing those highly-coloured and soul-stirring war novels; nothing was so lamentable as warfare. Taking it all in all with its barbaric pomp and splendour, it was a relic of savagery. (Hear, hear.) To come back to the object they had in view, it was that one and all should be able to keep their common sense about them, and even bring to bear upon an accident which might occur the light of the training they had received to the particular case in point also to sweep out all those old-fashioned superstitions and prejudices. That was one of the greatest objects they had in view. Dr. Kelly then instanced some of the old superstitions with regard to the remedies for burns, for cuts, drowning, &c., which evoked much merriment. Speaking with reference to the future of the ambulance society, Dr. Kelly said he was happy to say that in future the members of the classes would be able to obtain certificates at none or very little cost, as he believed that they would be able to get a grant from the County Council, which would relieve them of all, or nearly all, of their expenses. By the union of all the Ambulance Classes into a brigade, they would-have a very respectable body in Barry. With the toast Dr. Kelly coupled the name of Inspector Bell, of the Bute Dock. Inspector Bell replied, and gave a of the work accomplished by the Bute Dock Ambulance Society since its formation in 1881. Mr. D. Roberts, in a very neat speech, proposed "Success to the Ambulance Work." Police-constable David O. Davies (the hon. sec. Barry St. John s Society) responded. I Mr. Found said they were there that evening to combine pleasure with business. A strong desire and feeling existed among themselves of this society who had obtained their certificates that it was desirable for the purpose of keeping in their minds that knowledge which had' entitled them to receive certificates, and the best way to do that will be to form a brigade, composed of members of all classes possessing certificates. There was no question but that there was plenty o'f material in the district for the composition of such a bri- gade, and there was plenty of work for the brigade to do after it was formed. (Hear, hear.) Medical men were not so plentiful as blackberries, and sometimes a considerable time elapsed after an accident before medical assistance- could be ob- tained. He begged to nropose That in the opinion of this meeting it is desirable that all ambulance brigade for this district be formed, and that stèpsbe taken to bring it into operation as early as possible, (Hear, hear, and applause.) Mr. Blainy seconded and Sergeant Evans sup- ported. The motion was put to the meeting and carried unanimously. Mr. Jones-Lloyd proposed a vote of thanks to the chairman, which was carried unanimously. Captain Davies responded. Mr. Ralph proposed a vote of thanks to The Hostess." Mr. Fennell seconded, and th- motion was carried. The following are the officers :—President, Lord Windsor; vice-presidents, Captain Davies, Mr. D. T. Alexander, Mr. Evans (general manager, Barry Railway), General Lee, and Mr. Lowden; treasurer, Mr. D. Roberts. The secretary has not been elected.
