I IRS. GRUNDY'S JOTTINGS 1 I There will be no alteration in the T*ff Vale Railway Company's trains for the ensuing month. A The parishes of Stembridge and Sker, in the county of Glamorgan, have a population of six and nine respectively. Petitions against the Barry Railway Bill have been lodged in the Private Bill Office of the House 0 of Lords by the Ystradyfodwg Local Board, and against the Taff Vale Railway Bill by the Merthyr Local Board. s* There is no one, I think, in the Barry district. tfjut who will be glad to know that the members of the Bible Christian Church, Barry Dock, intend I -appealing to conference in Angust in favour of the re-appointment of the Rev J. Honey, the zealous and popular pastor, for the fifth year. This has no interest whatever except for the •gaudy sex. The new shades in lace this season are Tuscan and deep lemon. Cream, white, and coffee are nowhere in fashion's rage. if Several football friends have asked me to sug- gest that a return fancy dress match. gentlemen r. ladies," should be played in connection with the ¡ Barry Town A.F.C. before the close of the season, a suggestion in which I heartily approve. A contingent from Cadoxton-Barry was present at the Salvation Army demonstration at Cardiff last Monday, when General Booth, Prince Galitzin, Col. Lawley, and others delivered addresses. n There were more drunken women than drunken men to be seen in the Barry district during the faster holidays. I. The new official decorations of the chief of the I dock constabulary at Barry are of the most im- posing type, taking the gilt completely off the gingerbread of the county officers. » ¡ When General Booth, the head of the Salvation Army movement, visited Porthkerry last Monday evening he was struck with astonishment at the marvellous transformation the district had under- gone of late years. Fifteen years ago," he said, ..¡ why there was nothing here to be seen but a. few rabbits and an occasional human being. Wonder- ful wonderful! lit The tea in this district must be very strong, for I saw a large number of persons caressing their foreheads on Saturday morning. o o Seeing the barque Vanduara lying in Whitmore Bay on Good Friday a. visitor remarked, It's a funny place to shuv her," as he cast his eyes round looking for the tips. No wonder the company doesn't pay a divi- dend." remarked a man last week in Holton-road to another as he was carrying a load of timber on his back. # Mr D. T. Alexander is the hero of a brand new fttory, containing a happy reference to a certain lay bishop. Miss E. P. Hughes, Training College, Cambridge, daughter of Dr Hughes, of Barry, and sister to Mr J. A. Hughes, solicitor, Cadoxton, has been nominated by the Crown as member of the Court of the Welsh University. The honour is one of which the women of Wales ought to be justly proud. Barry footballers are very considerate. After the Loco. c. Traffic match at Barry on Good Friday several members of the team would not have their faces represented on paper for the sake of the camera, and then got behind the trees. » Several persons were Bun-stricken at Barry last Monday, but the tifect could not be perceived until after dusk. # A member of our staff has a dog of literary tendencies. Whenever he comes into the office he walks straight into the W.P.B. Fickle fashion again. It is suggested that every respectable woman should be entitled "Lady," instead of the prosaic Mrs or Miss." # The shorthand class at Holton-road School, Barry Dock, will meet for the last time this session this .evening (Thursday), at seven o'clock, and all mem- bers are specially requested to be present. The conduct of those who so inconsiderately forced a piano through the crush at the entrance to Barry Market Hall, for the railwaymen's concert last Friday evening amounted well-nigh to a positive scandal. If an accident resulted there- from and there were several narrow escapeB- the imprudent carriers would possibly wonder who would be to blame—themselves or the piano. The incident, to my mind, was one more calculated to ,drive people away than to further the interests of the orphan fund. Mr T. Ewbank, Cadoxton, the retiring president of the Barry District Teachers' Association, was unable to be present at the annual conference of -the National Union of Teachers held at Oxford this week. There were, I am informed, over three hundred members of the Barry and Cadoxton Conservative Club and Institute on the opening day last week. Why are the members of our police force like -furniture vans ? Because they continually keep moving." Among the private bills which passed the stand- ing orders stage in the House of Lords, on Monday last, and which were ordered for second reading, ■were the Barry Dock and Railways Act. 1888 (Amendment) Bill, which is explanatory of certain provisions in the Act of 1888 the Barry Railway Bill, which sanctions the construction of railways in Glamorgan and the Taff Vale Rail- way Bill, which empowers the company to con- struct new railways and other works, and vests in that company the Cowbridge and Aberthaw Rail- way Company. A welcome boon. Mr John Jones, of the Dock Hotel Mews, Holton-road, Barry Dock, has ,tr arranged to run two well-appointed brakes, at strictly moderate fares, daily, at two and four p.m., from Cadoxton to Barry Island, via Barry Dock and Barry. The members of the Cadoxton Section of the Typographical Association are jubilant over the smiling prospects of a most successful dinner to be held under their auspices at the Royal Hotel, Cadoxton, on Friday evening, the 6th proximo. The guests who have already accepted the invita- tion of the committee include several of the leading public men of the district, and a highly interesting and enjoyable company is confidently anticipated. Those who hava not already replied to the invitation of the secretary will kindly do so within the next two or three days. At the annual grand session of Good Templars, held at Portsmouth this week, it was reported that the large number of 35,000 members had fallen out of compliance during the last year. It was decided to increase energy in the various districts. » Many would wish the same custom prevailed in Wales. Kissing is the order of the day in St. Petersburg. On Easter Sunday the Czar kisses the cheeks of his courtiers, and they in return kiss his Majesty's shoulder, as being a little less familiar salute. Everybody kisses the hand of the Czarina, and she kisses her relatives and friends on the cheek in return, and then every man, woman, priest and child present kiss one another, exclaiming between the smacks, Christ is risen He is risen, indeed I" » A tit-bit for my fair readers. A small bonnet just brought over from Paris consists almost entirely of an enormous jet buckle, the two sides of which are curved gently backwards from the centre, and filled in with loops of moire ribbon. These loops are continued in duodecimo edition in a long line which completely surrounds the coiffure. This bonnet looks very extraordinary in the hand, but is charmingly becoming when set upon the head. The Cadoxton tradesman, the sender of the Place not known package addressed to Peny- bont-ar-Ogwy, suggests that the post office authorities should be sent bag and baggage to Bridgend » This is how the Mail referred to an incident contained in one of the Barry Dock Aews editorials last week :—A Wales for the Welsh Cadoxtonian has come out at the wrong end of a lesson in Welsh. He sent a parcel of perishable matter to a friend some days ago, and addressed it to Peny- bont-ar-Ogwy." The parcel has now come back, covered with postmarks, and labelled, 4; Place not known." The language of the sender was almost as loud as the odour of the parcel. Mr C. S. Baird has just been elected vice-chair- man of the Pembroke Dock School Board in suc- cession to the Rev T. Pandy John, removed to Barry Dock. < oil "Let not thy right -a-ifiew what thy left hand doeth." Mr H. Chappell, of the Wenvoe Hotel, Cadoxton, is entitled to thanks for his kind thoughtfnlness in sending magazines, periodicals, &c., to the small-pox patients for their entertain- ment during confinement at the infections hos- pital at Barry Dock. • FROM CORRESPONDENTS. DEAR AUNTIE GRUNDY,—I was Eorry to see the Barry Dock Xrwn last week without a verse, either in English or Welsh. But you must be excused at present, as you are so busy trainirg your female team of footballers. I hope you will give the boys a right good beating. I am glad to see your pluck. Auntie. I hope to see you make a good stand in front of the wickets through the summer, and topping the score with double figures every time. Youraffeetionate nephew,—MAC. I
