MRS. GRUNDY'S JOTTINGS The labour demonstration promoted fcy the Barry Trades' Council is fixed for the 7th of May. One of the police-constables at Barry Dock is known as the Professor." Is this one of the results of being a professing Christian ? # A member of our literary staff came into a windfall last Saturday, picking up a bundle of Bank of England notes under the railway subway near Barry Dock station. The young journalist was so unaccustomed to such an experience that he at once came back to the office, and innocently inquired what he was to do with the flimsies." All the compositors, with one accord, offered to solve the problem. The Rev D. Henry Rees, of Barry, preached at the Sunday School anniversary services at Roath- road Congregational Chapel, Cardiff, last Sunday. At a Masonic installation ceremony, held at Rhymney last Thursday in connection with the St David's Lodge, No. 2,226, Bro John Llewellyn, J.W., was installed by Bro J. Jewel Williams, Tynewydd, and Bro Fred C. Williams, I.P.M.,P.P.G.S.Bof the Royal Hotel, Cadoxton, was also amongst the officers invested. Sit There is 'a family at Barry Dock in which the Barry Dock News is known as the weekly bible." A club of millionaires has been started in New York. It is called the Criterion and consists of 125 members, whose aggregate wealth is estimated at 100,000,000 dollars. The membership will be limited to 150, and a good connection offers itself here for the merchantlprinces of Barry. » The living of St. Bride's-super-Ely is in the gift of Mr G. M. Traherne, of Coedriglan Park. It is said that Mr Traherne contemplates removing to Brighton and letting Coedriglan. In a publication entitled "Progress of Com- merce," just issued, Pontypridd is included amongst the principal ports of the Bristol Channel, whereas Barry is not in the run at all. The Rev Father McClement, of Penarth, and Dr O'Donnell, of Cadexton-Barry, were amongst the intimate friends of the late lamented Rev Father Butler, of Cardiff, who attended the funeral of that gentleman last Thursday. # One of the nurses in the Barry district is be- coming an expert rider of a safety bicycle. Cassabianca is not dead yet. The heroic manner in which the Barry dock-constable stood on the burning deck of the steamer Norwood, last Thurs- day night, sent a thrill of admiration through the hearts of a crowd of spectators. « The committee of the Barry Malei Voice Party have issued an appeal to the public of the district for financial support to enable them to defray the v 'expenses connected with their competitive visit to Caerphilly eisteddfod on Whit-Monday and I hope the appeal will be received-as it richly deserves-with a generous response. He caught hold of me like a lion does its prey," was the blood-curdling remark of a prosecu- tor at Barry Dock Police Court last Thursday, and even the magistrates did not suppress a smile. Dr Neale declares there is such a thing as a pilot at Aberthaw. The Penarth Local Board is known in one or two quarters as the Temperance Circle." A member of the Penarth Local Board suggested at the annual meeting last Monday that the dignity of the board be permanently elevated by the provision of an uniform to the inspector of pleasure boats. The reporters present quietly smiled. I am told several more scats are required on the promenade at Penarth. Someone writes :-A young poetic aspirant of Barry has just started, a thirty-act play in prose, to be called The history of Oliver Twist, the pre- tender, or Cromwell refusing a sleever. In Court-road, Cadoxton, last Sunday evening. HE "You would marry the biggest fool in the world then, would you ?-SHE: 0, George, dear, this is so sudden I » Good-bye, "Liz!" Police-constable Ebenezer .Rees has this week experienced a change of venue ftom Penarth to Aberdare. A cheering total. The total shipments at Barry Dock last week amounted to 113,662 tons 16 cwts. Mr O. H. Jones, J.P., Fonmon Castle, was re- elected chairman of Cardiff Board of Guardians at the annual meeting held last Saturday. They are getting bloomin' clever on the Taff, Jim," remarked a passenger to a mate in a third- class smoker between Penarth and Cadoxton last Monday. The new time table says Sunday is a (lien non.' What the blinking fool is the meaning of that?" .? It pays to be honest," observed our literary junior with a smile beaming of gladness from the tips of his knickabockers, as he stepped into the office one day this week, having received a golden sovereign for picking up fifteen pounds' worth of Bank of England pulp and restoring it to its owner although he said, had he a mind to, he could have done a continental trip, or any thing else, so far as the spoof went. # Messrs J. S. Dewar and J. Hayes, of Penarth, were present at the general meeting of the Welsh Football Union, at Cardiff, last Sunday. A tip for travellers on the Barry Railway. Chilians never enter or, leave-a coach, street car, or other public vehicle without bowing to all its ^occupants. There are over fifty-four streets and roads in the Barry district. Avenues and promenades to follow. Alderman Meggitt recommends that the public should suggest through the medium of Mrs Grundy's" column in the Barry Dock News a new name for Crossways-street, Barry Dock, upon which the site of the permanent public offices for the Barry district abuts. I am informed that a medical gentleman from the Barry district was one of the candidates for the post of medical officer at the Carmarthen Lunatic Asylum, rendered vacant by the recent death of Dr Hearder. V The Cardiff Board of Guardians have recom- mended to the County Council that a portion of the parish of St. Andrew's be annexed to the parish of Cadoxton, and portions of the parish of Sully annexed to the parish of Barry and Cadoxton respectively, the latter to include Barry Island. The marriage of the Rev R. Usher, M.A., late of St. Mary's, Barry Dock, and Miss Mabel Edwards, daughter of the esteemedirector of St. Andrew's- Major, is likely to take place on June 6th. The next term at the Court School for girls and little boys, Cadoxton-Barry, principal, Miss Small, will commence on Monday, May 7th, this school being one of the most efficient in the district. Under Sir William Harcourt's new scheme of probate duty, it is estimated that the next Duke of Westminster will be called upon to pay towards the National Exchequer the modest sum of £ 4,000,000 sterling. Honour to whom honour is due." The Barry Dock News has this week been placed upon the Government official list for Parliamentary adver- tisements. A meeting of ratepayers and inhabitants of Nelson, held last Tuesday evening, unanimously adopted a resolution in favour of the East Glamorgan Railway Bill. ± Not far short of two million passengers travel over the Barry Railway every year. Lord Stalbridge, who went round Barry Dock yesterday, is the brother of the first Duke of Westminster, one of the wealthiest noblemen in the world. His lordship carries his 57 years so well that he is taken for 40. He was Vice- Chamberlain of her Majesty's Household in 1872-4 and Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasury 1880-5, and sat as M.P. for Flintshire from 1861 to 1886. He is a Liberal. ♦ The Rev. Hugh Price Hughes is nothing if not outspoken. He says the wealthy unemployed come from the ends of the earth to indulge in gilded vice in West London. It is most wicked, the most dangerous, and the most miserable spot under heaven." Dulnees marked the coal shipping trade at Penarth Dock last week the quantity placed on board during the six days ending Friday morning being 34,802 tons.

The largest amount despatched in one day was 20,938 tons 19cwt., reached on Thursday and on Monday 20,874 tons 6cwt. was tipped. ¥ Will the death rate at Barry increase or decrease ? A contemporary assures us that we are on the verge of a medical strike, which may be a shade or two worse than a coal strike.
