ANNUAL MEETING OF THE BARRY DISTRICT TEACHERS' ASSOCIATION. The annual meeting of the members of the Barry District Teachers' Association was held on Satur- day afternoon last at Cadoxton Board School, when Mr T. Ewbank presided, and there were also present—Miss Fleming, Miss E. V. Llewellyn, Miss M. J. Morgan, Miss Macnab, Miss Merriman, Miss Lewis, Messrs T. Higman. J.E. Thorpe (secretary), H. E. Whitehouse, J. E. Wensley, F. W. Siidmersen, &c.—The Secretarv read a letter from the National Union of Teachers, stating, among other sugges- tions, that the executive desired to suggest that this association should authorise its committee to appoint standing sub-committees of assistant teachers, these standing sub-committees to have power to add to their number from the members of the association connected with special interests. -The Chairman remarked that as the association was so small it would not be advisable to form other committees, as it might have the effect of at length breaking up its constitution.-The letter was allowed to lie on the table. REPRESENTATION ON THE WELSH UNIVERSITY. The Chairman announced that he was unable to attend the conference of the Glamorgan and Carmarthen District Union, held at Swansea on Saturday week, for the nomination of representa- tives on the Welsh University Board and other business, and Mr Higman had kindly promised to take his place.—Mr Higman said he attended the meeting, which was a thoroughly representative one, and Mr Tom John, Llwynypia, and Miss Rule, Cardiff, were nominated for South Wales. The teachers in North Wales were to add another name. He (Mr Higman) was sorry there was not more competition, and thought the ladies should j take much more interest in the matter. A feeling was expressed that" certificated teachers" should be substituted for head teachers" in connection with the nominations, it being set-down that the selec- tions would be made by head teachers." for the purposes of this election, however, it was impossible to do anything to bring about a change in this direction, but the matter would be considered at a meeting of the District Union. The election of six local X.U.T. representatives on the Council of the Cardiff University College was referred back to the District Union, and arrangements were afterwards made for the annual meeting of the Glamorgan and Carmarthen District Union to be held at Neath in March.—The President remarked the report was very satisfactory, especially with regard to certificated teachers being allowed to vote, and he considered it was only right that they should be recognised in this way. (Hear, hear.) THE AFFILIATION WITH CARDIFF ASSOCIATION. The following resolution was received from the Cardiff Teachers' Association with regard to their affiliation with the Barry Association "That our secretary be instructed to communicate with the Barry Association stating that the Cardiff Association is desirous of continuing the affiliation between the Cardiff and Barry Associations, pro- vided that, in the arrangements made re affiliation, a clause be inserted to allow, in any debatable matter, the vote to be taken in separate associa- tions at the joint meeting.After a few remarks with regard to the rules in connection with the affiliation, Mr Higman moved that the affiliation be continued, and that a copy of the original rules be supplied to the Cardiff Association. — The President seconded, and the resolution was carried unanimously. REPORT AND BALANCE SHEET. Mr J. E. Thorpe said he was sorry to say there had been a decrease in membership during the past year, there being now only twenty-seven members. Everything had been done during the year to gain strength, especially by affiliation with the Glamorgan and Carmarthen District Union. Two meetings had been devoted to the considera- tion of a scheme for better attendance of the children at school, and he thought the result had been very satisfactory. Excellent papers had been read by members during the year, and one case of legal proceedings had been taken by the associa- tion, which had proved successful. With regard to their financial position, he was pleased to state there was a satisfactory balance in hand, us well as in connection with the recreation fund. Refer- ring to the benefits to be derived from affiliation with the association, he pointed out that the association had already done much to improve the position of the teaching profession. (Hear, hear.) -The President said it was a deplorable fact that there were so many teachers in the district not connected with the association, and he thought a special endeavour should be made to induce non-members to join. (Hear, hear.)- Having complimented the secretary, Mr Ewbank proposed that the report be adopted.—Mr Higman seconded, and expressed regret that Mr ,E. T. Williams (the president-elect of the association) was unable to be present that day, and he (Mr Higman) would like an expression of sympathy to go forth from that meeting to Mr Williams.—The President concurred, and a vote was accordingly passed. REVISION OF RULES. The rules of the association were read and alterations made therein. ELECTION OF OFFICERS. The election of president was adjourned owing to the absence of Mr E. T. Williams, who, by order of rotation, will be president for the coming year. -Mr Higman proposed a vote of thanks to the retiring president, and said the members knew Mr Ewbank had done his utmost for the association during his year of office. (Hear, hear.)-Miss Fleming seconded, and the vote was unanimously carried, Mr Ewbank suit- ably returning thanks.—Mr J. E. Rees, head master of Barry School, was appointed vice- president and Mr J. E. Thorpe was re-elected secretary and treasurer, a vote of thanks being accorded him for his able services during the year. —The following were elected on the general committee :—Miss Fleming, Miss Llewellyn, Miss Lowther, Messrs T. Higman, H. E. Whitehouse, R. T. Evans, and F. W. Siidmersen. ELECTION OF REPRESENTATIVES ON THE CARDIFF UNION. Messrs T. Higman, E. T. Williams, and J. E. Thorpe were elected representatives for this association under the Barry and Cardiff affiliation scheme. THE TENNIS CLUB. A meeting of the tennis club of the association was afterwards held, when a satisfactory report was presented, and arrangements made for the coming season. SOCIAL GATHERING. Tea was provided by the lady teachers of Cadoxton School, which was followed by an enjoy- able social evening.

ANOTHER SHEBEEN RAID AT CADOXTON. A shebeen raid was made by Police-constables Lane and Roberts on Sunday evening last, about nine o'clock, at No. 10, John-street, The Moors, Cadoxton-Barry, occupied by a man named John Ridge. A 4k cask of beer, spirits, and drinking utensils were seized.
DANGEROUS PRACTICE OF A CADOXTON HAULIER. The Barry Dock magistrates last Thursday imposed a penalty of 5s upon a man named George Clifford for neglecting to exercise proper control over his horse.—Police-constable Herbert Evans gave evidence proving that defendant walked about fifteen yards in advance of his horse and cart.
HORRIBLE FATALITY AT BARRY DOCK. A DOCK LABOURER FEARFULLY MANGLED. MIRACULOUS ESCAPE OF ANOTHER MAN. At an early hour on Thursday evening, the 1st instant, a labourer named James May, aged about 27, employed by Mr E. John, ship builder, &e., Barry Dock, was killed under circumstances of a horrifying character. The deceased was at work with a gang of men repairing the steamer Bon- nington at the Commercial Graving Dock, the men being in the act of fixing a propeller, when the wire rope. by which it was suspended, suddenly snapped, the propellor falling heavily to the ground and one of the blades struck May and cut his two legs almost asunder, also inflicting other injuries about the body, death being practically instan- taneous. Dock-constable Guy Franks, a member of the St. John Ambulance Association, was amonest the first on the scene, and Dr Bray, of Kingsland-crescent. quickly followed, but the poor fellow was beyond human aid. The body was carried to the public mortuary in Court-road, Cadoxton. to await an inquest. Deceased was the son of Mr Edward May. of 38, Vere-street, Cadox- ton. and lodged with Mr W. Spickett, undertaker, Barry-road. THE INQUEST. An inquest on the body was held on Friday morning last at Barry Dock Police-station, before Mr E. B. Reece, coroner, and a jury. of whom Mr H. L. Jones was foreman.—Mr A. Jackson. solicitor, Cadoxton, attended on behalf of Mr E. John. ship repairer. Barry Dock, employer of the deceased.—Edward May. the father of deceased, identified the body, and said his son had been a fitter's labourer. and worked for Mr E. John. at Barry Dock. Deceased was not married.—Mr Thomas Knowles, Windsor-road, Barry, foreman fitter in the employ of Mr John, said the work deceased was engaged in was the shipping of a propellor connected with the steamer Bonnington. She was lying in the commercial graving dock, and the accident occurred about 6.30 on the previous evening. The propellor was hanging on the port side of the vessel, and the men were putting it on the shaft. The propellor was first placed on the quay wall, and then it was lowered by a crane belonging to the Barry Company, it being placed in position by means of blocks from the stern of the vessel. The propellor was about two feet out of the perpendicular.—Mr John. at this stage, supplied the court with a sketch showing the manner in which the propellor was erected, and the witness (Knowles) continuing, said there was another pair of chain blocks to pull it into position, and the propellor was suspended about two feet from the bottom of the deck. About twelve men were engaged in getting the propellor into position, amongst whom was the deceased, and he (witness) was in charge. Eight were engaged in pulling the propellor across to the starboard side. when suddenly the wire pennant gave way. The Barry Company's crane was not then in use. The propellor fell and turned over on the deceased, who was in the act of shifting a plank. One of the blades of the propell»r struck the deceased, but he was released by the breaking of the blade. Deceased's legs were both nearly severed, and he was also injured about the body, being nearly cut in two. He died before the arrival of the doctor. The wire pennant which gave way belonged to Mr John. The weight of the propellor was 5 tons 8 cwts. The pennant was a 3 inch wire rope, and this was the first time it had been used, and was bought at Messrs Frazer and Company's, Cardiff. The pennant should carry eight or nine tons with perfect safety, and the breaking strain ought to be 25 or 26 tons. Adding the weight of the blocks to the propellor, the weight supported was 5 tons 13 cwt. It was the custom to examine but not test the ropes before using. He (witness) examined this rope before using, but noticed nothing wrong. He had seen it since, but could not account for it breaking. The whole strain was on the rope that broke, but witness did not think the pulling of the men would add to the weight. The wire was manufactured by Messrs Speeding Bros., Sunderland. — John Brown, 43, Davies-street, Cadoxton, said he was working as labourer at the commercial dry dock for Mr John on the evening in question. He had a miraculous escape. two blades of the propellor falling on each side of him, but fortunately he was uninjured. He saw -deceased on the ground after the blade had fallen on him. He considered the wire rope was strong enough.—Captain R. Davies, dockmaster, gave evidence with regard to the wire rope. He had seen the wire pennant in question, and he thought the breaking strain was about 21 tons. It was safe to put half the weight of the breaking point. He would have no hesitation in using this rope for the work in question. When a flaw was in a wire rope it did not usually show on the outside, and wire ropes had been known to break in this way. —John Demery. 5, Fryatt-street, Barry Dock, fore- man labourer under Mr Knowles, gave similar evidence.—Summing up, the Coroner said it was unsatisfactory not to find the reason of the rope breaking, which caused the death of the deceased, and it would prove a very long affair if they went into the manufacture of the rope and so forth. The only broad question for the jury was whether there had been any carelessness on the part of the people using the rope but if they believed the evidence adduced, there was no negligence what- ever proved on the part of Mr John or his fore- man.-In reply to the jury, Mr John said he received no guarantee from the firm as to the strength of the rope. He did not ask for a rope to stand any particular strain, but simply for a 3-inch wire rope.—The jury returned a verdict to the effect that the death was caused through the breaking of the rope, but no evidence was forth- coming to show the cause. They would recom- mend that such ropes be tested in future.—Mr John said he had no means of testing the ropes, bat this was supposed to be done by the firm from which they were procured.
"IT TOUCHES THE SPOT." Aye, that is what HOMOCEA." does. And does It quickly, too—whether it's a toothache or neuralgia, with all their shooting: painr, or eczema, with its painful and distressing irritation—or pile8, that make thousands of lives wretched. Rheuma- tism in the joints or muscles has been cured even of yttm* standing-while for cut?, burns, and bruises far, very far, ahead of any ointment that has ever been put before the public. LORD CARRICK says HOUOCBA cured him of bleeding piles, when all else failed; that he gave ome to a labourer who was lamed by a stone falling ■pun him, whom it cured. A woman had a pain ia the elbow and could not bend it for a year, and it cured her, and another used it for scurvy on her Ug, and it was doing her good-one letter closes 118m him with the words, It is the most wonderful atuff that I ever came across." LORD COMBERMERE says HOJIOCEA did him mare good than any embrocation he had ever used isr rheumatism. TESTIMONIAL ftOH THE GREAT AFRICAN EXPLORER, HENRY M. STANLEY. Whitehall, London. "Dear Sir,—Your oiut- ment, called HOMOCEA, was found to be the most sooth- ing and efficacious unguent that I could possibly have for my fractured limb, as it seems to retain longer than "any other, that oleaginous- ness so requisite for perfect and efficient massage. The fault of embrocations, gene- rally, is that they harden and require warmth, where as yours, besides being particularly aromatic, is as soft as oil, and almost instantly mollifying in the case of severe inflammation.- ours faithfully, Hnrar M.

REVIEW OF PUBLICATIONS. "THE CRAFTSMAN." Mr F. J. Harries, of 283, Cowbridge-road, a suc- cessful and popular Cardiff journalist, has rendered good service to his brother members of Freemasonry in the Principality by organising "a monthly journal and review, entitled The Craftsman, devoted to the interests of freemasonry in Wales I and the border counties." The venture is a most promising and enterprising one, superior in style and execution, and the general character of its contents are worthy in every respect the best traditions of the venerable and ancient brother- hood of which it is representative. Bro. Harries, therefore, may well be proud of the new literary venture of which he is the presiding genius. The number before us, a creditable production of letter-press, published by the well-known firm of Messrs Daniel Owen and Company, Limited, Cardiff, contains matter, in addition to being of special interest to Freemasons, equally edifying to the general reader, so that we do not hesitate to predict for The Craft smart a popular and in- fluential career. Appar' atly, it is, as some of Mr Harries' friends state the very thing that was wanted," and the jOUrD. will, no doubt, have the desirable effect of spre ling the leaven of masonic influence throughout the Principality. There is in the second (the February) number an interest- ing interview with Bro. Marmaduke Tennant, D.P.G.M., with portrait of the same prominent mason. A well-executed portrait of Bro. General the Right Hon. Lord Roberts, V.C., accompanies each copy of the same issue as an appreciable presentation supplement, with an account of his hardships, and recent visit to Cardiff and Barry. We specially commend The Craftsman to favour- able acceptance by the officers and members of the Masonic lodges in our own immediate district-the Barry (2,357) at Cadoxton, and the Windsor (1,754) at Penarth. AMONG THE AGRICULTURAL LABOURERS WITH THE RED VANS. This is the title of a readable monthly publica- tion issued in connection with the English Land Restoration League, the object of which is a somewhat revolutionary one, having in view the abolition of landlordism by means of the abolition of all taxes upon labour and the products of labour, and the earnings of labour, and the increase of taxation upon land values until the whole annual value of land is taken in taxation for public purposes. The monthly number is before us, and contains an interesting report for 1893.-Price one penny, published at the offices of the League, 8, Duke-street, Adelphi, London, W.C. 11 WORK." The monthly part of Work, the illustrated journal for mechanics, composed of the numbers from January 20th to February 10th, maintains its degree of usefulness and excellence, the many articles on how to make different things being most entertaining, aecurate, and easy of compre- hension. An illustrated supplement is given with this part, containing some portraits of readers, and what they say of their favourite journal. Everything dealt with in tt ork is thoroughly up- to-date, and others besides mechanics, &c., may glean valuable information from its pages.—Price sixpence, and may be obtained from newsagent. and bookstalls, or from Messrs Cas.,sell and Com- pany, Limited, La Belle Sauvage, London, E.C. "CASSELL'S SATURDAY JOURNAL." We have received the monthly part of Cassell's Saturday Journal, containing numbers from January 17th to February 14th, and the value of this periodical is so well-known that a description of the different excellent articles contained is not needed, the same being original and most popular, and will certainly entertain the most critical, the whole get-up of the monthly part of CasselVs Saturday Journal being worthy of congratulation, and leaves nothing for criticism.

In the March isssue of Night and Day the success as well as the difficulties of Dr Barnardo's work among waif and stray children are strikingly illustrated. In a remarkale case set forth in his 14 Personal Notes," Dr Baruardo deals with the difficult problem of heredity versus environment. Drawing on his large experience of some 24,000 cases of rescued children, he says a cheering word in these days of pessimism by strenuously arguing that hereditary faults may be effectively combated by a change of circumstances in life, though he admits that one or two generations may be necessary to completely eliminate the acquired taint. The usual "Personal Notes are crammed with taaes, to which a special value attaches owing to the photographs from life with which they are accompanied. There are life stories here from nearly all over the country, showing conclusively how large is the field of effort which institutions like Dr Barnardo's have yet to conquer, and how really national is the work which they carry on. In a strong article Dr Barnado pulverizes certain recent criticisms of his emigration work based upon a presentment by a grand jury in Manitoba. It appears that the objections which the grand I jury placed upon record in such sweeping terms, were based upon one solitary case (If failure on the part of a Bamardo boy And yet as appeared, and from another article in the magazine, 4,571 trained boys and girls have been sent to Canada and the Colonies after training in the homes, and of these Dr Barnardo claims that 98 per cent. have been successful. The evidence adduced appears to turn the tables completely upon the critics. An interesting account of the annual supper to waifs and strays opens the number. It seems to be the easiest thing in the world to gather in London at a night's notice 2,000 destitute children from the streets and lodging-houses No issue has ever been marked by greater variety or interest than this, and the magazine will well repay careful consideration by not merely the charitable public, but by all whose attention is turned to social topics. Nearly 5,000 boys and girls are under the care of the homes and fundi are greatly needed for the maintenance of this great army of the rescued.
BARRY PILOTS' AGITATION FOR REPRESENTATION. Mr William Sanders and Mr Jonathan Lewis, two well-known Cardiff and Barry Pilots, write in reference to the paragraph which appeared in the Barry Dock News last week, to the effect that the interests of the Cardiff resident pilots are not identical with those of Barry, and that, in con- sequence, a feeling of dissatisfaction has arisen. Mr Sanders affirms that in all cases of dispute with the Barry pilots he and his colleague, Mr Jonathan Lewis, on the pilotage board, have acted fairly and impartially to every individual. Mr Sanders also says that he knows nothing about any agitation," and that the other members of the board, he feels certain, would at once confirm his views upon the subject. Mr Saunders adds that he has no objection to direct representation, if desired by the whole of the pilots.
A BOY STEALS BREAD AT CADOXTON-BARRY. William Henry Rouse, aged 11, was evidently hungry when he ran after Mr Edward Norton's bakery cart the other day and stole therefrom a loaf of bread; consequently, the Barry Dock magistrates had compassion upon him on Thurs- day last, and bound him over in the sum of f.5 to come up for judgment when called upon.
BARRY MAGISTRATES AND BREWERY INTERESTS. William Worthy Ward, labourer, Brook-street Cadoxton, was summoned to appear at Barry Dock Police Court last Thursday, on a charge of shebeening on the previous Sunday, but one of the presiding magistrates, being interested in a brewery, the case had to be adjourned for a week.
PERILOUS EXPERIENCE OF A BARRY DOCK YOUTH. A lad named James Courtney, aged 13, son of Mr M. Courtney, of 3, Gueret-street, Barry Dock, has just had a narrow escape from shipwreck. While on a voyage, as deck boy, on board the sail- ing vessel, Vale of Doon, from Queenstown to Silloth, with a cargo of wheat, on Sunday, the 11th ultimo, and when off Silloth a fierce gale from the S.W. drove the ship on the beach near the light- house. So dangerous was her position that the crew of fourteen hands took refuge in the main rigging, where they remained exposed to the fury of the storm for five hours. The wind, shifting a little, drove the vessel a mile or more to the north- ward, where she remained fast on the sand. After lightening her of the bulk of her cargo, with the assistance of three tugs, the vessel was safely towed into Silloth Dock without further mishap.
GRAND CONCERT AT BARRY MARKET HALL. The annual tconcert held for the benefit of the t funds of Tabernacle Welsh Congregational Chupel, Barry Dock, has invariably proved a great success. but previous concerts were eclipsed by that held on Saturday evening last at Barry Market Hall, for which occasion grand musical talent was secured, and the hall was crowded with an admiring and enthusiastic audience. The chair was occupied by Alderman J. C. Meggitt, sup- ported Captain Davies, Mr Jenkin Meredith, and Mr T. J. Thomas, and among those present were -Captain and Mrs E. O. Evans, Dr Lloyd- Edwards, Mr and Mrs Attwood, Mr and Mrs J. Petty, Mr and Mrs J. H. Hosgood, Mr and Mrs D. Lewis, Mr J. D. Davies, Mrs T. J. Thomas, Mr and Mrs Lewis Williams, Mrs J. Meredith and the Misses Meredith, Captain Murrell (sen.), Mr and Mrs D. Lougher (Barry Dock), Mrs T. Bassett, Mr T. Davies (secretary), Mr John Williams (treasurer), Mr and Mrs W. Harris, Mr and Mrs R. T. Rees, Mr and Mrs Howell Jenkins, Mr John Lewis (secretary of the church) and Mrs Lewis, Mr and Mrs H. Rees (Barry Dock), Mr E. J. Thomas, Mrs John (Barry Dock), Mr and Mrs A. Webb, &c. The fol- lowing were the artistes of the evening :—Miss Emily Francis, Penarth, member of the Welsh Royal Ladies' Choir (soprano); Miss Mary Thomas, gold medallist and Westmorland scholar, R.A.M. (contralto) Mr William Evans, Swansea (tenor); Mr Gwilym Thomas, Ynyshir (bass) the accompanist being Professor Richard Howells, Aberdare, all of whom were in the best pos- sible form, the capital programme, therefore, being magnificently gone through as follows :— Part I.: — Pianoforte solo, Professor Howells song, Bedouin love song (Pinsuti), Mr Gwilym Thomas solo, Entreat me not to leave thee (Gounod), Miss Thomas duett, Love and war (Cook), Messrs Thomas and Evans song, Waltz song from Romeo and Juliet" (Gounod), Miss Emily Francis song," Holy City (Adams), Mr William Evans: duett, In the dusk of the twilight," Miss Emily Francis and Miss Mary Thomas.

Miss Emily Francis; quartette," Sleep, gentle lady," Mr Evans, Mr Thomas, Miss Francis, and Miss Thomas finale, God save the Queen." It is obvious to those who were present that no words are required to detail the conspicuous suc- cess which distinguished each artiste in their respective renderings, each being thoroughly ap- preciated and heartily applauded, redemands being numerous. Mr T. J. Thomas, in tendering thanks to those present for their attendance, said the success of the concert was far beyond the most sanguine expectations of the promoters. He also proposed a hearty vote of thanks to the chairman, who, he said, had materially assisted on this and previous occasions. (Applause.) — Mr Jenkin Meredith seconded, and the vote was carried with acclamation.—Mr Meggitt, in returning thanks, said he should like, on behalf of the public, to express gratitude for the excellent evening's en- joyment provided. (Cheers.) The promoters, he said, deserved great credit for their courage and enterprise, and he trusted they would soon pay off the debt on the new chapel which was in course of erection. (Cheers.) The proceedings terminated with the singing of the National Anthem.
MISS JENNER AND THE DINAS POWIS HIGHWAY BOARD. At Cardiff on Wednesday week, Mr. G. H. Brett, district auditor, attended for the purpose of auditing the books of the Dinas Powis Highway Board. Miss Gertrude Jenner, Wenvoe, attended, and made a formal objection to the payment of a sum of A 140 in respect of the construction of a new road on the Wenvoe Castle Estate. Miss Jenner handed in a written protest, and stated that whatever she said or did this case would undoubtedly go to the High Court of Justice. She objected to the new road on the Wenvoe Castle Estate on the ground that under marriage settlements executed in 1850 the land could not be given away, but must be sold or exchanged and if sold the money to be invested for the benefit of the Estate. The Wattla Mill was acquired by her late father, and did not come under the marriage settlement. It formed a portion of the residuary estate and she was there to claim the land. Mr Brett said he was not trying Miss Jenner's rights, but was there to receive objections to the accounts. After a little further discussion the objections -1, That the land was given away, not sold or exchanged; 2, that the work was in pro- gress when the contract was entered into 3, that neither the contract nor conveyance was produoed to Miss G. Jenner on November 2, 1892; 4, that there is no conveyance 5, that no certificate of two justioes was given, as required by the Highway Acts, and that no vestry was called by the district surveyor; 6. that an ancient footpath was cut away, and a style was blocked up entirely 7, that the contract was exceeded by £100 8, that the land is already mortgaged.
DEATH OF THE MAYORESS OF NEATH. DECEASED A SISTER TO A CADOXTON GENTLEMAN. It is with regret that we announce the death of the Mayoress of Neath, which took place at her residence, Gwyn-y-Coed, on Sunday morning last. Miss Davies, sister to the present Mayor of Neath (Dr D. Llewellyn Davies), suffered some time ago from a severe attack of influenza, from the effects of which she succumbed. Deceased was the second daughter of Alderman David Davies, who has honourably filled the position of chief magis- trate of th3 borough. She was 40 years of age, and was well known and respected by a large circle of friends and acquaintances. By her death the poor of the town and district have sustained a severe loss, for she was always ready to do what lay in her power to ameliorate the condition of those deserving of assistance. The funeral-a private one-took place on Thursday. Miss Davies was a sister to Mr B. G. Davies. solicitor. Cadoxton.
