Tenders for printing the supplementary cata- logue were received by the committee, the lowest quotation being accepted. In connection with the damage by a borrower of a volume from the library, value 4s 6d, Mr Blackmore said he had again written to the person in question, Mrs Johns, 46, Newland-street. but his communications had been ignored. He had also written to one of the guarantors in the matter, and he had promised to pay the cost should the borrower continue to refuse to do no.-It was decided to defer the matter till the next meeting, after which legal proceedings will be taken against the woman. The Librarian in his report stated there had been 26 new borrowers' tickets issued during the month, the total issue now being 731. The number of books lent during the month was 1,535, the weekly average being 307, of which 88 per cent. were works of fiction. On the motion of Mr B. Lewis, seconded by Mr J.

REVIEW OF PUBLICATIONS. Ii NIGHT AND DAY." Dr. Barnardo devotes a large proportion of his space in the May issue of Night and Day to illustra- tions from photographs of a great variety of cases of rescue through the agency of the Homes. Some twenty-four engravings of boys and girls, admitted apparently from all over the kingdom. show conclu- sively how wide is the range of effort which the Institutions undertake, and also how necessary these efforts are. Cruelty, destitution, homeless- ness, and child-suffering appear to demand now as much as ever unceasing care and attention. It is no wonder that the homes have, as is abundantly evidenced in this issue of Night and Day, friends and supporters from all over the world. His Grace the Primate of All Ireland testifies to the value of the work done, while gifts and letters are recorded from correspondents in most out of the way localities. Some of these gifts are of the most remarkable character, and the paragraphs relating to them constitute a real revelation as to the benevolent sympathy which is felt towards the institutions, not only by the wealthy, but by an enormous number among the middle and lower classes. Dr liarnardo states, in recording the departure of his first emigration party for the current year of 234 trained lads, that he has now sent to Canada and the Colonies no fewer than 6,805 boys and girls, of whom 98 per cent. have acquitted themselves satisfactorily. It is hoped that several additional hundreds from amongst the nearly 5.000 children in the Homes will be sent to Canada during the summer. It is announced that a self-denial week for the benefit of the homes will be observed from the 4th to the 12th of August next. The annual meeting, one of the most attractive entertainments of the year in London, has been fixed to take place in the Royal Albert Hall. on Saturday afternoon, 23rd June, when Lord Brassev will preside. "GREAT THOUGHTS." Weekly Id. London A. W. HALL, Great Thoughts Office, Hutton-street, E.C. We con- gratulate the managers of Great Thoughts upon the enterprise which provides for the reading public, at the low price of one penny, articles such as those on Shakespeare in this present issue, and papers from the pen of a literary artist, so deservedly popular as Dr Conan Doyle; the great novelist is at his best in these sketches written under the title Before my Bookcase." They combine the discernment of the dis- criminating critic with the fresh, sweet wisdom of the child. The article on Charles Kingsley as a Christian Socialist, from the pen of Mr Keeble, is most creditable, and the paper by Mr Holmes on Analine Dyes, under the head of Great Industries," is very interesting and instructive. A peculiar charm breathes like the scent of lilies through Miss Priestley's analysis of Dinah Morris while the description of the Royal College of Music lately opened by the Prince of Wales, will be welcomed by not a few. Other interests are provided for by the article describing a visit to the library of the British and Foreign Bible Society and the various Bibles contained therein. HELPING WORDS." June, Id. London A. W. Hall, Great Thoughts Office, Hutton-street. E.C. The Rev A. Styleman Herring, who has conducted over a thousand open- air services, and may, therefore, be presumed to know something of the subject, has contributed a bright and useful paper on open-air preaching to this month's number, which contains, in addition, a variety of articles and stories in accordance with its title. Mrs Weigall's serial story, The Doctor's Household is concluded, and a new one by Mrs M. S. Haycraft, is promised for the next number. A short story by Rev. P. B. Power, Lessons from Nature," by James Crowther, mothers' pages, young folks' page, and other items make up a good number. MOTHERS AND DAUGHTERS." June, Id. London A. W. Hall, Gr cat Thoughts Office, Hutton-street, E.C. The contents of this month's number are as varied and useful as ever. Health in the Home is the title of an article by Dr. Alice Ker a complete story, Why my Uncle remained a Bachelor," contains a good temperance lesson Miss Willard's Call to Service is full of strong appeal, and Mr Richard Kerr's article on Hidden Beauties of Nature reveals some wonders of the microscope. To these may be added the editor's Chit Chat" and Sunday Talks a paper on Contrasts by Lady Hope, Household Hints, Facts and Figures, and many other items. The centre plate, Contemplation," isan additional attraction. LEACH S PENNY KNITTER. LEACH S PENNY KNITTER. We have to hand Leach's Penny Knitter, which is issued monthly, price one penny, and published by R. Cartwright, 8, Johnson's Court, Fleet-street, London, E.C. The Knitter is complete with illus- trations in connection with the knitting industry. For the household it must prove a valuable publi- cation, each month dealing with all kinds of ornamental knitting, and how to make many use- ful articles of clothing and different things for the home, rendered simple and easy by the clear directions given, each pattern being also illustrated. Leach's Penny Knitter can be obtained from news- agents, &c., and should be a very popular journal. "THE LADY'S COMPANION." The Lady's Companion is a weekly magazine for the family. It is useful, interesting, and profit- able, and treats on home decoration, fashions, fancy needlework, cookery, health and toilet, dressmaking, domestic management, and gives answers to correspondents on all subjects, &c. Every week appears an absorbing and complete story, and the entire contents are thoroughly entertaining. A special feature is the article appearing regularly on Women's Employment," dealing with different work suitable for the weaker sex, in which some valuable information is given. The price of The Lady's Companion is one penny, and is published by R. Cartwright, 8, Johnson's-court, Fleet-street, London. WORK." The illustrated journal for mechanics, Work, published by Messrs Cassell and Company, Limited, La Belle Sauvage, London, E.C., the monthly part of which is sold at sixpence, continues a valuable periodical, and should prove popular amongst the particular class for which it caters, dealing as it does most lucidly with the manufacture of articles of household and other furniture, machinery, different woodwork, &c. The reader cannot but interest himself in his perusal of Work, and will, no doubt, take advantage of the complete informa- tion so cheaply provided. FOOTBALL THE RUGBY UNION GAME." Although the football season is at an end, several hours may be interestingly and pleasantly spent in reading the popular publication, Football: The J lug by Union Game, edited by the Rev F. Marshall, and published by Messrs Cassell and Co., Limited, La Belle Sauvage, London, E.C., at sixpence. In Part 9 is continued the entertaining article on County Eootball, dealing with prominent clubs and players, the number being complete with well-finished portraits, including that of the well- known editor of Football, the Rev F. Marshall, II as president of the Yorkshire Club, 1890-1891. Such a valuable and high-class publication as Football: The Rugby Union Game, should have an II extensive circle of readers.

BARRY DOCKS AND RAILWAYS. CREATION OF DEBENTURE STOCK. An extraordinary meeting of shareholder* of the Barry Docks and Railways Company was held in the board room of the company, the Exchange, Cardiff, on Thursday last, Mr Archibald Hood (vice-chairman) presiding, there being also present Messrs T. R. Thompson, R. Forrest, G. C. Downing, J. J. Handcock, C. E. Stallybrass, C. E Evans, W. Mein (secretary), and others.—The secretary having read the notice calling the meet- ing, the Chairman proposed the following resolu- tion That, in pursuance of the Barry Dock and Rail- ways Act. 1891, and of the several Acts of Parlia- ment authorising the company in this behalf, there be created, and that the directors be and they are hereby authorised to issue debenture stock to the amount of JB50,000, subject to interest at the rate of 3. per cent. per annum, payable half- yearly on 1st Jauuary and 1st July, and to such other terms and conditions as the directors may determine. -This was seconded and unanimously agreed to.
BARRY OPPOSED BY THE RHYMNEY. THE PROJECTED EAST GLAMORGAN RAILWAY. The petition presented to the House of Lords by the Rhymney Railway Company in opposi- tion to the East Glamorgan Railway Bill alleges that the proposed railway is promoted by, and in the sole interesta of, the Barry Rail- way Company for the purpose of enabling that company to obtain access to the collieries, manufactories, and works upon their railways, and thereby to set up an immediate, direct, and wholly uncalled for competition for traffic arising in the district served by them. This competition, they say they are prepared to prove, is wholly unnecessary and unjustifiable, and is not required by any public demand for or want of improved or additional accommodation. The traffic between the collieries served by them and the port of Cardiff, which, from its geographical position, is the natural port or outlet therefor, has always been, and is at the present time, adequately and expeditiously dealt with by them, and any traffic which the new railway might obtain would be taken away from their railway, and would thereby seriously injure them by depriving them of a traffic which forms the bulk of the traffic conveyed over their line. Moreover, if it were desirable to take any part of this traffic to the Barry Docks, there is an existing shorter and more convenient route to those docks over their (the Rhymney) railway and the system of the Taff Vale Railway Company. The power contained in the Bill to enable the Barry Company to subscribe to the proposed under- taking clearly shows, they allege, that the proposed line is not a bondfide undertaking, but is an attempt, under the cover of an independent company, to obtain for the Barry Company an access into districts where they have no interest, and a control over the Rhymney Company's affairs and line which if sought directly, would never be given to them. After setting out the running powers sought by the Bill, the Rhymney Company conclude their petition with the followingparagra ph Yourpeti- tioners object most strongly to the proposed run- ning powers as being most arbitrary and altogether uncalled for. They cannot be exercised without causing great injustice and inconvenience to your petitioners, and to the traffic on their railway besides, such running and user powers are sought, not only by the company for their own use, but to be available by all companies and persons using the intended railway, thus placiAg companies and persons not now defined in a position to acquire and exercise such powers, which, it is probable, would not be conferred upon them if the application were made so as to be considered with reference to the merits of the particular case of any such applicant."
