TESTIMONIAL FROM THE GREAT AFRICAN EXPLORER, HENRY M. STANLEY. Whitehall, London. "Dear Sir,—Your oint- ment, called HOMOCEA, was Found to be the most sooth- Lng and efficacious unguent that I could possibly have for my fractured limb, as it seems to retain longer than any other, that oleaginous- ness FO 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.-Yours faithfully, HEKBY M. STANLEY." Remember that HOMOCEA subdues inflammation and allays irritation almost as soon as applied. All wholesale houses stock HOMOCEA.

STEAMER ON FIRE AT BARRY DOCK. The steamer Norwood, about 3,000 tons, belong- ing to Messrs Christie and Company, of Cardiff, is undergoing repairs at the Barry Graving Dock Company's dock at Barry. At a late hour on Thursday night last a number of rivetters were at work in the forecastle, when a hot rivet is supposed to have fallen amongst some inflammable goods stowed therein, and a portion of the forecastle was in a short time ablaze. At eleven o'clock the firlil was still gaining ground, there being a scarcity of water supply fer extinguishing purposes. The dock and local county police and a numerous staff of helpers were at hand and did all in their power to suppress the outbreak. Long before midnight the Barry Company's tug-boat, Clive, which has steam pumps on board, was playing freely upon the fire, having been connected from the main dock with the burning steamer by means of lengths of hose, and in a short time the flames which had begun to assume threatening propor- tions, were effectually got under, and repairing work was. after some delay, renewed on board by the graving dock hands. Amongst those who rendered useful aid in suppressing the outbreak were Mr T. Lowdon (one of the engineers at the graving dock works), Police-sergeant W. Gammon, Dock-constables W. H. John, James Mayled, W. Atkins, W. D. Ralph, and Guy Franks, with the crew of the Clive, and workmen at the graving dock. The damage done by the fire is not as great as was at one time feared. In the endeavour to put out the flames which gained so rapidly in the forecastle, a young man from Cadoxton. belonging to the gang of repairers, severely burnt himself about the hands and arms, and he had to be sent home for treatment.

I FANCY DRESS FOOTBALL MATCH AT CADOXTOX-BARRY. "MRS GRUNDY" v. "ALLY SLOPER." Much amusement was caused on Saturday last in connection with the fancy dress football match at the Witchill Grounds, Cadoxton, most of the players being in fancy dress, and were captained by Mrs Grundy" and Ally Sloper." The following are the names of the players, with their characters, several being well got up :—Mrs Grundy's: Goal-M. Hopkins, 19th century football costume; backs—R. Ashton. Daisy Bell" W, McLeish, Tootsie"; half-backs—R. Havard, Mrs Grundy G. Morgan, Susie I. Sheldon, Lively boy forwards—F. Hood, Annie Rooney E. Davies, Fiery Nell W. McCormick, I Slavey G. Griffiths, "Mary Ann W. Sydenham, The lost child" M. Callaghan, "Nora." Ally Sloper's Team Goal-G. Taylor, artilleryman back—T. Taylor, Ally Sloper G. Williams, 19th century football costume half- back-J. King, If a policeman; J. Barratt, "Nigger" E. Evans, football costume, 19th century; forward-C. Brown, Bulldog," a police- man; E. Day, football costume 19th century; W. B. Debney, artilleryman; A. Hoddinott, Sailor boy D. Thursby, football costume, white and brown. The referee was Mr E. Glanville, and the linesmen Messrs Evans and Hood. The match was held for the benefit of the Barry District Football Club, whose financial position is unsatis- factory, owing mainly to different clubs failing to fulfil their engagements with this club. Before the match several members of the teams paraded the district in a break, headed by the Barry Dock Town Band. There was a good attendance of spectators, and the game passed off very smoothly, much amusement being afforded by the same. For some reason or other, Mrs Grundy was rather shy at the commencement of the game, but she gaily overcame this feeling in a short time, it being thought that the reason of the shyness was due to the presence of the re- doubtable Ally Sloper," or the absence of the proverbial and indispensable "smelling bottle." Fiery Nell" started the game with a pretty kick, and immediately afterwards Tootsie" pluckily stopped a rush by the Sloperian forwards. Daisy Bell secured, and, although hampered a little by her skirts, dribbled the ball up near Mr Sloper," who, however, succeeded in taking the ball, and, evading Daisy," sent it back up the field. The leather went out, Daisy Bell" put it in play again, and one of the policemen would, perhaps, have scored, if the ball had not passed outside the posts. The ladies now had the chance to score from two corners conceded, but had to content themselves with a bye or two. After determined play by the weaker sex, Ally" was obliged to save, and Fiery Nell was very near scoring. The 14 Bulldog tried a run up, and "Tootsfe" deftly took the ball from him and passed to Mrs Grundy," who, however, presented the leather with such a weak kick that, as a result, the males secured their first corner. The policemen were prominent in this endeavour to score, but Thursby handled. The ladies heaved a sigh of genuine relief on obtaining the free," and" Daisy Bell" assisted the leather to safe quarters. The Lively boy received from Fiery Nell," and was about scoring, when the "Sailor Boy braced up and kicked the ball back. Mrs Grundy gained possession, and with a nice high kick sent the leather to the territory of Mr Sloper," who received it on his hat-some say it was on his proboscis-and gave a corner. No score resulted, and "Tootsie," receiving from the kick-off, sent the ball back a bit, but one of the artillerymen, the nigger, and policeman then tried hard to pass the ladies, the policeman especially endeavouring to run the ball in." The Sailor Boy was near scoring, and a tussle followed between Susie," The Fiery Girl," Bulldog," and Nigger." the ladies proving victorious, but Ally Sloper'' turned the play with a rattler up-field. If then studied the interests of the ball, but "Tootsi^" relieved the policeman of his duty, and passedVo the "Lively Boy," who would have scored if the Slavey had not been in the way. scored if the Slavey had not been in the way. Daisy Bell," however, nearly did the trick after- wards. Following the re-start, Tootsie saved the goal well, but Debney headed the ball back, and Mrs Grundy returned it again. Annie Rooney" and Mary Ann," assisted by "Susie" and The Slavey," seemed determined to score, and might, indeed, have succeeded if the soldier- like goalkeeper had not been at his post. Seeing their opportunity, Thursby and Debney, accom- panied by Bulldog," then had a loo'.r in, and the leather was seen to go just over .Mrs Grundy's goal posts. The "Sailor Boy" secured after- wards, and looked like scoring, but failed to do so. Receiving from the kick-off, Debney trans- ferred to "The Nigger." and the ladies' goal was again invaded. "Mrs Grundy" saved disaster, and passed to Mary Ann." This lady distinguished herself by a splendid run, and when by Ally Sloper she passed to Fiery Nell," whose shot for goal struck the posts. This was disappointing, and more so when -1 Susie also just missed the goal. Del»ney received from his goalkeeper, and n'fve to Thqr,.hy. who scored after a trood run t1 D. The ladies plended that the plaver unfortunate in not scoring once or twice. The Lost Child," just before half-time, secured, and passed to 4ti Sifter Annie," who transferred to "Susie," but, the last-named female missed the pass. Day got it, and half-time was then announced. The interval was gladly welcomed, and the ladies were seen to be forming plots for the next half. lemons, however, being conspicuous by their absence. Thursby started the ball, and "Annie Rooney" obtained possession, the ball going out. Susie received from the throw in, and Williams gave a corner to save his goal. "Daisy Bell" kicked it nicely, and Thursby receiving, passed" Mary Ann," Mrs Grundy," and "Tootsie," and put the ball in goal, thus scoring the first for the Sloper team. Fiery Nell" re-commenced operations, and passed to "Mary Ann," who helped on the ball, and gave to the Slavey," a corner resulting, from the shot for goal, the corner kick being entrusted to Daisy Bell." Mary Ann secured, and was near scoring. Daisy Bell" then obtained the leather after the kick-off, and sent well up field, Mary Ann" gaining possession, but was tackled by Evans. Susie recklessly rushed to the aid of Mary Ann," who quickly passed to the Lively boy," and his shot was very near being successful. The ladies' goal was afterwards in- vaded, and Annie Rooney relieved the pressure by securing from Mrs Grundy and passing to "Lively boy," who deserved to score after his beautiful run down field. Annie Rooney" received from the bye-kick, and gave to Mary Ann," who dribbled till near the goal, and then transferred to Fiery Nell." and she rose the ball just over the cross-bar. Mrs Grundy sent the ball in from an out," and Mary Ann" secured, but was stopped in her run by Policeman King," and the leather went out. Mrs Grundy threw in again, and the Lively boy this time took it. and passed to Annie Rooney," but Evans kicked out to save. The Lively boy" afterwards gave a splendid shot for goal, the ball striking the posts. Play at this time assumed a lively aspect round Ally Sloper." Mary Ann nearly scored, the ball bouncing baek from the cross bar, and the Lively boy then kicked it through amid cheers. "Mrs Grundy after- wards gave an excellent shot to score, and Tootsie getting the leather, passed to Mary Ann," who, after executing a beautiful dribble, transferred to The Slavey and she succeeded in notching another goal for the ladies. Mrs Grundy's" players, after scoring their two goals, quieted down a little, and the Nigger and Day, running the ball up, passed to Debney, who afterwards gave back to Day, and he. with an easy shot, equalised the score. The Sailor Boy" and Debney securing sent the ball to Thursby, and he also did the needful, the gentlemen now having three goals to the ladies' two. Not by any means down hearted, Mrs Grundy's" team played up pluckily, and from a penalty kick the Lively boy scored, thus making things equal but in a few minutes Nora added to Mrs Grundy's 1 scoie. As the game was drawing to a close the ladies had the best of the play, and had hard lines in not augmenting their score by two or three more goals. Final result:—" Mrs G rundy's team, four goals Ally Sloper's," three. The game was a pleasant one throughout, and much laughter was evoked by the comicalities displayed by the players, H Mrs Grundy's" team being undoubtedly the favourite. The arrangements were excellently carried out by the secretary, Mr J. H. Woodward. SMOKING CONCERT. In the evening most of the players and others adjourned to the Witchill Hotel, where a pleasant smoking concert was held, the chair being occupied by Mr B. Lewis, Cadoxton, supported by Mr J. H. Woodward (secretary) and Mr R. Ashton. and there was a good company present. Mr Harry Abraham's ventriloquial and stepping perform- ances were much appreciated, and the following programme was also well rendered :—Violin solo. Mr C. R. Ford song, "Monarch of the woods." Mr J. Sharpies; song, Keep it up," Mr W. Parry song, On guard," Mr L. Willett; song, Whistling coon," Mr D. Edmunds; song, "Where did you get that hat ?" Mr E. Evans violin solo, Unity," Mr C. R. Ford Scotch reel, Mr Harry Abraham song, Mr T. Shields song, The three Jews," Mr T. Taylor song, 0, what a mug," Mr Wilcox; trio, Messrs R. Ashton, J. Parry, and T. Taylor; recitation, The comet," Mr J. Vickery. During the evening, Mr B. Lewis expressed the hope that the Barry District Club would be much more successful next year in securing good matches with teams that would fulfil their engagements, and then their financial position would also improve. (Hear, hear.)-The proceedings closed with a vote of thanks to the chairman and those who had taken part. Mr C. R. Ford ably accompanied.
BARRY PUBLIC LIBRARIES' COMMITTEE. The annual meeting of the Barry and Cadoxton Public Libraries Committee was held on Thursday evening, the 19th instant, at the Library, Holton- road, Barry Dock, the members present being Dr W. Lloyd Edwards, Messrs D. Roberts, B. Lewis, J. R. Llewellyn, and W. J. Flowers, with Mr E. F. Blackmore (secretary and librarian). Dr Lloyd Edwards having been appointed to the chair pro tevi., the minutes of the previous meeting were read and adopted; and on the motion of Mr B. Lewis, seconded by Mr J. R. Llewellyn, Mr D. Roberts was unanimously re-elected chairman of the committee for the remainder of the tenure of the committee's existence, in view of the new Local Government Act coming into operation. Both mover and seconder spoke in complimentary terms of the manner in which Mr Roberts had performed his duties hitherto and Mr Roberts, in returning thanks, said he considered his re-election reflected upon him a considerable honour. (Hear, hear.)-In reply to Mr Llewellyn, the secretary stated the committee, as at present constituted, would cease to exist in November.—Mr J. M. Davies, assistant attendance officer. Cadoxton, was appointed to the vacant post of assistant librarian, at a salary of 5s per week.—The Secretary re- ported that during the past month the number of borrowers' tickets issued was 31, making a total issue of 708. The number of volumes issued from the lending library during the month was 1,537, of which 84 percent, represented works of fiction, the average issue being 306 per week.—Mr Blackmore likewise stated he had received a parcel of books as a gift from the Swedanborg-ian Society, numbering about 59 volumes, together with the gift of a copy of the annotated paragraph Bible from the Religious Tract Society and it was resolved to accept the same, and tender to both societies the thanks of the committee for their gifts. The new books at the library, Mr Black- more added, were now ready for lending purposes, the total number of volumes on the shelves at present being 1,529.-With regard to a volume returned in a damaged condition by one of the borrowers, it was resolved to serve upon the offending party notice that unless the work was paid for within a week the necessary proceedings would be taken under the Public Libraries Act to recover the cost of the same.—The future meetings of the committee were fixed for the last Friday evening in each month, at 8.30 and on the motion of Dr Edwards, it was decided to take in at the Holton-road Reading-rooms a copy of Mr Owen M. Edwards' new monthly magazine, Wales.Several accounts were presented for payment and passed.
rHE NOTORIOUS GUERET-STREET AGAIN STORMED. Armed with a magistrates' order, the police shadowed certain houses in Gueret-street, Barry Dock, on Sunday morning last, and Acting- sergeant Herbert Evans and P.C. William Smith afterwards raided No. 44 in the same street, a house occupied by a Mrs White, and seized a quantity of beer and drinking utensils. They also found several men and women on the premises drinking.
"IT TOUCHES TTIE SPOT." Aye, that is what HOSIOCEA" doe. And doe. it quickly, too—whether it's èI. toothache or neuralgia, with all their shooting pftitip, or eczema. with its painful and distressing irritation—or piles, that make thousands of lives wretched. Rheuma- tism in the joints or muscles has been cured even of years' standing-while for cuts, burns, and bruises it's far, very far, ahead of any ointment that has ever been put before the public. LORD CARRICK says HOMOOEA cured him of bleeding piles, when all else failed; that he gave some to a labourer who was lamed by a stone falling upon him, whom it cured. A woman had a pain in the elbow and could not bend it for a year, and it cured her, and another used it for scurvy on her leg, and it was doing her good-one letter oloses from him with the words, It is the most wonderful stuff that I ever came across." LORD COMBERMERE says HOMOCEA did him more good than any embrocation he had ever used for rheumatism.
