Uhit-Ghit, v BY RAMBLING TOMMY. What a noble,. self-sacrificing body of men are our city fathers. View them as thfj: git around tka Council Board. Gentlemen: I must have something to say upon that question. I must object to such an outlay- Yes,—" I say no irore for fear, but list- Intelligence stands on every brow,- As round the table our Councillors sit: With faces grave, each plan they discuss, Intended our district to benefit. ooo r~ A: ■ e h 1 I am sorry to nt, t that, through illness, the esteemed chairman of the^ Health and Public Works Committee, Mr R Snell, was unable to be present at the meetings held last Monday night. It is to be hoped that he will speedily recover, and be aeram able i.' r' A > to take part in the Council's deliberations. 0 0 I understand that the much respected clerk of the District Council is about to take to himself a wife. May he long lire, to enjoy the blessings of a happy union. Mr Morris, after the wedding, it is stated will be residing at Penarth. 0 0 0 44 The Guckoo will soon be here Agnin, 'remarked an eminently popular Dre,,itleman,o .n, Monday night last. 0 00 The Rev. 1. 0. Stalberg saysa mother can see more beauty in her child with the naked eye than another can with a magnifying glass. 0 0 0 Mr E.Tennyson Smith's meetings on Wednesday and Thursday, December 18 and 19, will be held in the Arcot Street Wesleyan Chapel, the other meetings will be held in Audrews' Large Hall- 0 0 At the popular service next Sunday evening the Rev. W. G. Davies will give the ,address. The meeting will commence at 8.15. 0 0 0 As mtimated some time ago, the Ptiiarth Cork Club has been re-organised, and under the present manage- ment it has been more select than, was the former society. On Friday evening the first ball of the seasron will be held, but this is not of a public cbaracr ter, even the names of the young ladies invited, having to be submitted to the Committee for approval. One feature in this gatheringiJl be that whilst w I there will be an ample supply of temperance beverages With tea and coffee, nothing of an intoxicating e-bar. Acter will be permitted. This is a step in the right direction. The pastry will be supplied by Mr Bishop, the other efitableø" ånd the drinks being provided by Mr 0. Williams, of the Britannia Coffee Tarem. Dancing will commence at 8 p.m. and continue until 4 a.m. 0 0 0 Mrs Scantlebury's Christmas Bazaar is now open. -An iiosjpectoii i. solicited. The first meeting of the School Board will be held next Thursday evening. O 0 0 I heai that one of the new School Board members I heai that one of the new School Board members is talking of contesting one of the two County Council seats at the next election. ■" '0 0 0' Three of the four District Councillors who retire next March or April, are already threatened with a determined effort to take the seats from them. The present Chairman and Mr Guy are to be ousted, because they have not persisted in their efforts to obtain the brick-field at Cogan for the allotment holders, and Mr R. Bevan is to lose his seat because —because Mr Joe Denning wants it. o « 0 The Cogan (would-be) Allotment holders (How many of them are present allotment bolders ?) are not to be denied their pet piece of land (if they can help it). They have moved Glamorganshire in viiin. I and,more recently a Ilerefordjan cjvme down to view the land wanted and the laud offered. Although this gentleman has given a verdict in Vour of the land CT-In wanted, yet there seems very little prospect of its ever being planted with "spuds." I hear that Mr Guy, and possibly some others have been waited up™ for a subscription to help pay the piper, but "not for Joseph, oh dear nol" 0 0 0 An exhibition of Living Pictures will take place in Andrews' Hall next Tuesday and Wednesday, the proceeds of which will be given-to the local Nurses' Aseociation. It is gratifying to know that all the half-crown tickets for Tuesday have been disposed of. and the money deposited in the bank. There are yet a few shilling tickets on hand- The supply for Wed- nesday is getting beautifully less, and I would advise an immediate application as only a limited number- will be offered for sale. They may be obtained at the Ghronicle Office. 000 The Hungarian Band is back again, and has given lp 0 us some eplendid selections of music to-day. 000 Mrs T. Powel read a paper',ubject The New Woman," at the monthly meeting of the B. W. T. A. on Wednesday. It will appear iq, the Chronicle next week. .r,V v- -< V "O" .C'o I understand that the Deputy Mayor of Cardiff is that estimable man, Mr Alderman Daniel Jones I father in-law to Mr Edward Rees, who is about open an auctioneer's and general accountants' office in Penarth. ol « 0 Who is disposed to challenge the mildness and s lubritv of. Penarth ? Mr J, B. Ferrier lives here, and on Sunday last, enjoyed a splendid dish of rasp- berries and some strawberries, all picked in his garden And this the end of November, too! 0 0 6) A Barry District Councillor makes the startling proposal that every doctor should be required to wear a tall, red hat, 80 as to distinguish him from oth. r me"- The Blue Ribbon Choir entertainment has been' postponed until further notice in consequence of ti 8 Bazaar in connection with the New Tabernacle. Baptist Chapel. 0 00 The Registrar of Marriages is likely to pay Penarths several visits dujing the next month or six weeks. o ei e A certain young man, last Saturday night week, went to the house of another, and asked him if he would come to Cardiff on the following day to hear Ian Maclaren, who was to preach at the Park Hall, and as an inducement, told him he would miss a, grand treat if he didn't. The friend, however, having another engagement, the young man went alone. A day or so after the two happened to meet, the one enquired how the other liked Maclaren ? Oh, said he, when he commenced his sermon I fell asleep." 0 0 0 Wanted !—Men who would undertake to take hom&- and see safely indoors,, after 12 midnight, ceitfuis gentlemen (?) who visit a place where they can get grvnk, and when they ieave for home, can searctly be- held responsible for their actions. ooo Those who attended the Temperance meeting las', 9 Wednesday, were flattered by the speaker, the Rev I 0, Stalberg, who said there were not very many there, but those who werepteeent were the CREAM of the Temperance party. The addiass which Mr Stalberg gave was most interesting, and those who heard him will lootc forward with pleasure to his- address at the Sunday Evening Popular Service on the 8th of December. 0 0 Q Dr Joseph Parry officiated at the new organ of the- Tabernacle Baptist Chapel. 0 0 0 At the popular service at Andrews' Hall last Sun; day evening, Mrs Wheatley, referring to the recent General Election, gave an apt illustration of the Tem- perance Movement. She said "The sunflower springs suddenly up, aod grows to a great height, but it soon, withers away and dies the oak tree takes years and years to grow up, and it lasts for centuries. And sa it is with thej, ewrerance Movement. It is growing —not all at once, but steadily and surely. Its power is now being felt, ana "it will. gain comple e victory. 0 rlhe result of last Sunday's service, as regards tfce attendance, was very satisfactory, but financially, ifc was not what could have been even reasonably; expected. < o
