[j FOOTBALL f: THE PENARTH CLUB'S RECORD FOR, 1894-5. f Regarding the combination of unfortunate circum- stances with which the Penarth Club has been met this year, and without which the club promised early in the season to make a bold bid for a spotless re- cord, the season has been one of the most successful experienced by the Seasiders- Their fixture list, in- creasing in importance with each succeeding year included matches with all the principal clubs in the Welsh Football Union district, and with the exception of Swansea (the dates of whose matches were unfor- tunately those upon which Jack Frost reigned) these were met. Cardiff, for the first time in the annals of the Seasiders, were early in the season defeated by 8 points to 3, while Llanelly also stands in the same position, although both teams managed to revenge the ignominy before the season's close. Up t3 the time that the Cardiff match was played the team bad shown spmptottw of growing stronger—the pre- liminary weeding having by this time been com- pleted-when first Shepherd, their brilliant half-back. then Hubert Alexander, their most successful three- quarter, Gibbs and Dai Evans, selected at the time as regerve International, all had to retire owing to illness or injury, and Hutchings, Shepherd's vis-a-vis, a very clever man in working the scrum, also left the district. It is needless to say that the places of such sterling men were not adequately filled, but recently Shepherd returned to the assistance of the team and has done eacelient service. Under such disheartening circumstances the season's fixtures proceeded, and it is gratifying to record that only seven out of the 31 matches played wexe lost, t'vo matches being drawn, and the remaining 22 wan. A number of points were lost through poor goal kicking, only 12 tries being converted, wLite no less than 49 remained uncon- verted. May be this is accounted for by the fact that I a sort of roving commission for a goal-keeper has been going round, no less than six or seven players being tried with no very satisfactory result. The most successful try getter was Hubert Alexander, who, although absent from more than half the matches through an injury to his knee, has a record which will compare favourably with the performance of any individual player in the Prncipality, he having gained 22 tries. As an instance of his ability it may be stated that against. Aberavon he put on the whole of the four hies scored, white at Plymouth he crossed bis opponents' line three times. The captain (H. E. Morgats) J. A. Alexander, Shepherd, and T. Dewar among the backs, and Jeff Matthews and Gibbs, in the forwards, follow as the most successful scorers, the list being :—H. G. Alexander, 22 tries; H. E. Morgan, 8; J. A. Alexander and G, W. Shepherd, 5; G. Matthews, 4 (and a dropped goal) W. Gibbs' and T. Dewar, i wl,;Ist R. M. Garrett, W- G. Lambert, C T Kirby, NIT J Lawday, E Ellis, G. Spencer, E C Chivers, J. Jones, ondl J. F. Angove scored I 1 each. Next season it is confidently anticipated that all this year's players will be available, with r the exception, perhaps, of Dick Garrett, the old Inter- national centre three-quarter but following his actiCl during the present season, the seductive chauns of the winter pastime may again succeed in alluring him from his long-contemplated retirement. Most of the players have youth on their side, and with matunty will develope into better players. Below we give a list of next season's engagements. It will be noticed that fixtures have been arranged with several well-known English teams, osides the tist locll clubs. With the absence of the seiies of misforijnes j which has accompanied them during 1894-5, the Sea-; sixers next season should do even better than in the 1 one just closed.

Penarth Congregational Chapel. A FLOWER SERVICE AND A GOLDEN SERMONETTE. In connection with this chapel the anniversary ser- vices weie held last Sunday, the officiating minister being the Rev Lloyd Williams, B.A. In the after- noon there was a flower service, the decorations lend- ing a very pleasing effect. The altar was charmingly embellished, and floral tributes depended from the various gas pendants. Among the ladies concerned in this work of love were Mrs Pike, Mrs Milne, Miss Marian Howard, and Misis A. E. Wallis, who were assisted by the elder scholars of the Sunday School. The Rev Williams selected as his text Luke xii;, 27: 11 Consider the lilies of the field how they grow." In the course of a peculiarly appropriate and most interesting address, the rev gentleman said that Christ was the first to make Nature speak of God, as well as guiding truths for the soul- Flowers taught us how to be calm, quiet, thoughtful, and useful. In them was a world of love and study. The emphasis in the text was evidently on the word grow. They grew by helping one another. This was perhaps not feasible to some, but the pollen, or tine powder, was communicated from florrer to flower by insects, such as the bee and wasp, which were attracted by the honey. The former insect was very unselfish, and, in fact, invaluable, for were the pollen not earned from one flower to another these plants would sarely perish. This was also true of wasps, with jyhich boys were not particularly friendly. Wasps. Low eve*, selected different flowers from the bees, and by this means verified Darwen's dictum that an examiaafion, of this one single beautiful contrivance incontro- vertibly showed that flowers were dependent upon one another for their perpetuation." We were similarly dependent upon each other, and should ever remember St. Paul. who bade us forbear, forgive one another, and bear one another's burdens. How did these flowers grow ? Quietly and without effort. Where there were noise and excitement, there was very little else. Like our young bodies which grew in the night time when we were at rest, so did thb flowers when quietness reigned over Nature. This was also verified in our national life. When we were freest from commotion and disturbance, when the nation's pulse was not raging at fever heat, when commerce and the industrial arts flourished, then was the country growing and advancing, Milton verv beauti- 0 t-I fully expressed the idea when he wrote While the ploughman near at hand Whistles o'er the furrowed land, And the milkmaid singeth blithe, And the mower whets his scythe, And every shepherd tells hia tale Under the hawthorn in the dule." Not in ecclesiastical Jerusalem did Jesus Christ spend his early days, but in roving over the green fields of Galilee, one of the quietest spots in Palestine. Hera was found a quetude which favoured true growth, both for the body and mind; and the life of the Church was not to be guaged by unhealthy exciterrent and spasmodic efforts cf revivalism. Again, flowers grew modestly and unconsciously. They never advertised their growth. The sign of a true growth was the unconsciousness of it We could observe the conditions of growth and dig. plant, and water, but God gave the increase. We could observe the means of grace and spiritual ordinances, but a good t"ll-. charac- ter was unconscious of its beauty- There were two classes, the one exclaiming, Lord, have we not dona so and go ? Have we not cast out; devils ill Thy name ?" and repeat glibly their own supposed deeds of goodness, and the other expressing surprise when, told that they had fed the hungty, clothed the naked, y visited the siok. Chlist's answer would be Ye did it all the same." People with fine characters grew beautiful without knowing it. Ah! lessons wise unto salvation could be learnt from the smallest flowen Apostrophise them thus ;—" As thou art dependent upon God, so will I be as thou art dealing nourish- ment trom the air and sky, so will .1 seek my spiritual sustenance from on high, as tho finger of Go 1 made 11 1 thee beautiful; make me also beautiful in this world and the world to come."
