II _& A& && Ã & & GOLDEN WEDDING CELEBRATION AT LLANBETHERY. PRESENTATION TO MR & MRS J. SMITH. Last Thursday week a large number of friends and relatives of Mr and Mrs John Smith, Llan- bethery (lately of New Wallace Farm, Wenvoe), assembled together in order to celebrate the golden wedding (,f the venerable couple, at their residence. Mr and Mrs Smith commenced their married life in the neighbourhood of Glyntaf, near Treforest, where they made a host of friends, very few of whom are among the living to-day and after eight years' successful labour in agricultural pursuits removed to New VVallace Farm, Wenvoe, where they resided until their retirement from business a few years ago. As a farmer, Mr Smith has been eminently successful, and a practical man in every sense of the word. A man 1 f sound judgment, honest, reliable, just at d strictly impartial, his services as valuer liave been greatly in requi- sition. His tame also has figured prominently as judge in several important ploughing matches, hedging and ditching competitions, &c.. in the counties (,f Glar)io.,gat) ati(i.L,,Iotjnjoutli. For years he Mas a guardian of the poor in the parish of Wenvoe, and <iid much useful work. He is now a member of the Liat,carfau Parish Council. As Chiistia: s, Mr and Mrs Smith were faithful mem- bers of the Congregational Church at Glyntaf, where Mr Smith, fur eight years, acted as treasurer. On coming to \V envoi- they emolled themselves as members of Carmel Congregational Church, Bonvil- stone. Mr Smith's good qualities were at once taken advan age of, with the result that he was made treasurer and deacon, the two of which offices he has honourably filled, and still holds. When residing at Weuvoe Mr Smith had to drive a distance of five miles to chapel every Sunday morning, and during a period of nearly 40 years he was absent not more than two or three times on a Communion Sunday, a fact which proves a noble record of faithfulness and earnestness for the good cause. Of the numerous friends of Mr and Mrs Smith, a few of them, headed by the Rev W. E. Evans, the respected pastor of Carmel Congregational Chapel, Bonvilston, decided to take advantage of this unique opportunity in their history to present them with their portraits on the occasion of their golden wedding as a small token of respect and esteem. The work, entrusted to Mr Taylor, Cardiff, was well executed. The presentation was made by the Rev W. E. Evans, Carmel, who delivered a most interesting and edifying address, touching on the sterling character of the recipients, their good qualities, and the lives of usefulness they had led during an union of 50 years. He heartily con- gratulated them on their golden wedding—a privi- lege which but very few couples enjoyed, and wished them both a pleasant and peaceful journey during the remainder of their lives. Congratulatory speeches were also delivered by Mr William Smith (a brother of the recipient), who is 81 years of age; Rev J. B. Llewelyn, Llantwit-Major, and Mr R. Davies, Llancarfan. Mr J. Smith, who was deeply moved, in responding, thanked the friends for their generosity and kind consideration in pre- senting Mrs Smith and himself with their like- nesses, which were ao handsomely framed, and also for their kind expressions and wishes on the occa- sion of their golden wedding. He did not deserve, nor expect anything of the kind, and the presenta- tion came upon him almost as a surprise. However, he fully appreciated their kindness, and felt ex- ceedingly grateful. As to their 50 years of married life it had been, on the whole, a smooth and pleasant one not, however, without a few storms, although sunshine greatly predominated. To have lived together for a period of half a century was, indeed, a privilege extended only to a few. He acknowledged the Hand of Divine Providence, and trusted the future again to Him. Letters of apology for inability to be present were read from the Rev C. Tawelfryn Thomas, Groeswen, and Mr T. Rees, Glyntaf, the latter, however, forwarding the following appropriate lines bearing on the occasion ANERCHIAD I MR JOHN SMITH A'¡ ANWYL BRIOD AR BEN HANER CAN' MLYNEDq 0 FYWYD PRIODASOL.

Smith (brother), Glyntaf; Mrs Jenkins (sister), Tre- forest Mr H Smith (son) and Mrs Smith, Suddon Mawr Mrs Dunn (daughter) and Mr Dunn, St Athan Mrs Phillips and Mrs Lewis (nieces), WhitecroFis Miss Agnes Smith, Miss S A Thomas, Mr John D Thomas, Mr Jenkin Tbemas, and Masters Jenkins and Willie Dunn (grandchildren), Rev Mr and Mrs Evans, Bonvilstone Rev Mr and Mrs Llewellyn, Llantwit-Major; Mr T.

SHIPPING SUPERINTENDENT'S BANKRUPTCY. CONNECTION WITH DINAS POWIS. At the March sitting of the Cardiff Bankruptcy Court held at the Town-hall on Saturday (before Mr Harry Couzens), E. S. Keddell, Dinas Powis, was examined by the Official Receiver. He said he was formerly in the employ of Messrs Spiller and Baker at £ 350 a year for the last six months and £ 300 a year for four years previously. His wife earned a separate income by writing. He ascribed his failure to living beyond his income for the last 18 months or two years. He scarcely thought he had done to the extent of 9700 during that time. He borrowed money five years ago to meet some bills, so he supposed he was living beyond his income then. He had borrowed money from a stevedore named Fletcher. They were two sums of JE85 and £ 200, and he gave a bill for JE300. He had scheduled Mr Thomas Gunstone as owing him 955. That was under a promise from Mr Gun- stone to pay him 2!- per cent. if he employed his lighters for Messrs Spillers' work. (Mr Gunstone That's not true.) He did not consider it dishonest at the time, although he did not believe Mr Gunstone would have paid the 2 per cent. to Messrs Spillers. He received commissions and gratuities to about JE150 a year. He did not think Messrs Spillers knew of it. He knew they would think he was not acting honestly. They were also creditors for 9137 for corn and meal supplied for his pigs and fowls. He was not living in London, and was entitled to a fourth share of a reversionary interest on £ 700 on the death of an aunt. Mr Gunstone denied ever offering the debtor 21 per cent commission, and said he had an agreement with Messrs Spillers to supply lighters. The examination was provisionally closed. -4-

ASHORE ON BARRY BREAKWATER. £340 FOR SALVAGE SERVICES. Sir Francis Jeune, the President of the Admiralty Division, gave judgment on Saturday last in the claims for awards for salvage services rendered by the tugs King Fisher, of Newport, and Sea Prince, of Bristol, to the s.s. Welbury, of West Hartlepool, whilst she was in a dangerous position in Barry Harbour, being drvien by the gale on the 12th January last on to the rocks of the eastern break- water. Defendants had paid JE150 into court in satisfaction. The President did not consider the tender of the defendants sufficient, and awarded plaintiffs £ 340 and costs.
CITY OF BARRY IN 1920. [BY THEODORE DODD.] How the tempus doth fugit! It is well within my recollection that the town-then with a struggling, industrial community- created no small stir over the arrangements made for carrying through a scheme for the purchase of 100 acres of land whereon to erect our workmen's dwellings. Ah, yes! These houses now stand as monuments of the wisdom of the small, but convincing body of men who advocated its purchase for the purpose, and although opposed by the officialdom, which was a potent element in public affairs in the old days, they carried election after election. Finally the municipalising party triumphed over the place seekers and worshippers of Mammon. Sir J. C. Meggitt, M.P., took a great part in that fray. Indeed, many believed at the time that it was that gentleman's able and brilliant advocacy of this scheme that brought him so prominently to the front as the champion of the rights of the people. It was his action in that matter, too, that secured for him the honour of being the first representative of the South-Easoern Division of Glamorganshire. Sir Walter Morgan, a worthy knight who upheld the dignity and status of the town with the then Alderman Meggitt and fought for its charter of incorporation, also brought the Campbell-Bannerman Administra- tion to view the claims of Glamorganshire to a larger number of representative 3. Those were the days of reform and revolution Parlia- ment's ancient machinery was displaced by a more expeditious process of government! Might first relaxed its claims as the ruling power of kingdoms, and the powerful empires of the world were subdued by the glorious crusade of peace! Those were the efforts which brought us these splendid times, when we are Blessing the cotter and the Crown, Sweetening worn Labour's bitter cup And, plucking not the highest down, Lifting the lowest up." Barry practically started the first movement in favour of hospitals being municipalised and although success followed the conversion of joint stock companies into concerns governed by and for the benefit of the public, still people went mad on municipalisation Our public laundry in Wenvoe Avenue is an institution which, at the time of its establish- ment, provoked much comment. The idea of a laundry under the control of the City Council followed the construction of the Free Church Cathedral in the Rectangle This fact was jocularly referred to as being the necessary close following of cleanliness to Godliness Alderman John Lowdon, whose bust appears in the vestibule of the Free Library in Windsor Park, was the pioneer of education in our City, and in its earliest days was said to have taken a conspicuous past in perfecting the national system. The Welsh Government sought his services, and he served on that famous Commission which perfected our present system of technical education. The Lowdon Scholarship, which permits of an entrance to the Welsh University, provokes the greatest competition among aspiring lads. It was only the other day that Alderman Lowdon was addressing a crowded meeting at the Military College, which overlooks the City from Pen- coitre Park, when he emphasised the necessity for the observance of greater attention to physical development among attendants at our Academy. The College was established in accordance with the International Treaty entered into between China, Japan, Russia, Germany, Italy, America, France, England, and the Colonies, so as to keep our countrymen ready to take up the gun and sword should one of these countries depart from the treaty rights recognised between them all Portsmouth, Chatham, and Aldershot have been deprived of their barracks-full of soldiers and sailors, and the present system of education has been made to embrace a course of training in case any person under the age of 35 would be required to take up arms as a duty of the State. The establishment of these Colleges all over the country was regarded as the triumph of peace over war, and Lord Stead was foremost in pro- moting that cause! The movement at Cardiff for the purchase by the town of tha docks has had some little stimulus in the direction of pushing the town a little more to the front. Since Barry secured the establishment of the Welsh University in the Rue de Llancarvan, however, by the aid of the present lord of Dunraven, Cardiff's star has been in the des- cendent. As the Welsh centre of commerce, and the Spa of the World, Barry quickly superseded the once premier town in Wales. A succession of events brought about this change. First should be mentioned the establishment, fifteen years back, of a service of passenger! steamers between this country and America, brought about by Sir Richard Davies, knighted by King Edward IV. in recognition of his service to commerce in securing the promotion of the No. 6 dock, on the occasion of its opening by the king. These electrical vessels cross in three days to New York, while in the old days double that time was occupied on the journey by the ancient steamers then in use. But how came Barry to have its three miles of promenade on the sea-front ? That I shall explain in my next article. (To be Continued.)
No OR YES ?-It is not pleasant to feel despon- dent and low-spirited, nor to feel bilious and have pains in the back. Is there a way to move this unpleasant feeling? YES, there is; experience teaches that OWEN'S CERTAIN PILLS will totally remove above complaints surely and effectually. Have you tried them ?—Depot: OWEN, Chemist, Cadoxton.

The contestants were Denny Tubiu, of Barry Dock, and Jack May, late of Birkenhead, and now living in Cathays, Cardiff. Tobin was a novice to the ring, but hai considerable advantage in weight and height over his more experienced livaI. The local man landed heavily oa the face in the first round, from which May never recovered, and he gave in when four and a half rounds had been fought. ACCIDENTS.—On Thursday in last week the following accidents were admitted to the Accident Hospital, Kingsland-crescent:—Thomas Cairn, rail- way brakesman, right foot crushed when at work on the line William Gibbs, labourer, in the em- ploy of Messrs Price and Wills, injured back through falling off the cliff near the proposed passenger pier Arthur Wilson, second n ate of the steamship Inchdune, severe injuries to back through falling into the hold of the ship.

Thomas, HERALD Office, deliveied an interesting paper on "The Chief Characteristics of the Welsh Nation," which evoked considerable discussion. The proceedings were enlivened by songs rendered by Miss M. A. Chubb and Miss Havard.

Thorpe, stating that already three social gatherings had been held at Cadoxton in connection with the evening schools, and he asked the committee to consider a grant towards the expenses of these and providing rewards for good attendance. Hitherto the expenses bad been borne by the teachers themselves. It was eventu- ally agreed to grant each school JE5 towards pro- viding prizes. A circular letter was read from the County Council notifying the dates of the examina- tion in May. It was agreed that Messrs D. W. Roberts and J. O. Davies wait upon Mr E. W. Waite asking him to call the plumbing students together, so that they might apply for the certificate issued by the Society of Registered Plumbers. BARRY.

CRICKET CLUB.—The prospects of the newly- formed Cricket Club for the ensuing season are very rosy. The secretary (Mr T J Morgan) has arranged an excellent fixture list, which includes the Penaith, Wenvoe, St Faan's, Llantwit Major, Southerndown, Alpha (Cardiff), and other teams. On Monday evening next, at the Parish Hall, Barry, a general meeting of the club will be held, when all who intend becoming members should be present.

CONSERVATIVE MEETING.—^ meeting of the Dinas Powis Conservative AssnCiation was held on Monday evening last at the Cross Keys Inn, Mr D. T. Alexander presiding. An address was delivered by Mr J. A. Lovat-Frazer, Barry, and I this was followed by a smoking concert. RHOOSE. PROTESTANT LECTURE.—On Monday evening las a Protestant meeting was held at the Jubilee Hall, Rhoose, when a lecture was delivered by the Rev J. C. Wilcox, vicar of Shepscombe, Glos., and chaplain to the Wycliffe preachers, on the subject of A Question for the Times Why was Bishop Hooper burnt at the stake ?" The chair was taken by Mr G. Rutter (in the unavoidable absence of Mr John Cory), who was supported by Messrs Travers, Jenkins, Wilcox (Parade), Harding (Rhoose), Mrs Rutter, Mrs Paterson, &c. The answer to the question as to why the bishop was burnt was that he denounced the same idolatrous practices in the Church as were now being re-introduced by the Sacerdotal Party. A the close of the lecture a vote of thanks was proposed by Mr Harding to the rev. gentleman, which was seconded by MrTravers, and cariied with acclamation, a similar compliment being also paid the chairman.
FOOTBALL. [BY ATHLETE.] Another quiet day was experienced in foot- ball at Barry last Saturday. The Rugby team had a blank on their fixture card, while the Unionists were away playing the return League match with Rogerstor.e. A semi-final for the South Wales and Monmouth Junior Cup between Newport Garrison and Trelewis was the only attraction at Barry, and this match was played before a fair attendance. The character of the play was not such as to cause Barry spectators to become excited, and a tame game resulted in a win for the Soldiers by a goal to nil. With regard to the match at Rogerstone, Barry partisans evinced no great concern as to the result, the fight for the League champion- ship being now left between Rogerstone and Aberdare. Barry sent a strong eleven away, the only absentee being W. H. Morgan, whose position was taken by Robertson. The after- noon was glorious, and the weather ideal for football. The match ended in a win for Rogerstone by three goals to one, C. Jones scoring for the Unionists. Commenting upon the match, a Rogerstone scribe says:—"For downright good play and excitement, the match was the best that has been seen on the Rogerstone ground this season. The teams were very evenly match, and despite the keen rivalry between them, the game was devoid of roughness or questionable tactics. From a spectator's point of view, the "Soccer code was exhibited to great advantage. Whilst Barry were perhaps superior in close footwork, they were defeated by the singularly clever headwork and combination of the Rogerstone men. Neither team lacked dash, but Barry were in this respect not quite so good as their opponents." The local junior matches played last Saturday resulted as follows :—Cadoxton were defeated by Llandaff Yard on their own ground by two tries to one goal; Barry West End played the Grenvilles at Cardiff, the former wining by two goals to one; the Barry Dock Albions also visited Cardiff, and Singletons were obliged to acknowledge defeat at their hands by three goals to nil.

Monday last was the last day for withdrawal of nomination of candidates for the forthcoming District Council election. In the North Ward Dr P. J.

TRAP ACCIDENT AT CADOXTON Shortly before one o'clock to-day (Thursday) a serious accident occurred at Cadoxton. A horse, attached to a grocery van belonging to Mr T. G. Tibbett's, Holton-road, Barry Dock, was being driven up Barry-road, and when turning the corner of Davies-street, to come into Court-road, one of the wheels of the vehicle was caught in a rut between the gutter stone and the road, and was pulled clean off. The horse became affrighted at this, and rushed down Davies-st, but iu turning into Court-road its mad career was checked by the van being upset. The driver had in the meantime jumped out, and escaped with only slight injury. The horse was also comparatively uninjured, but considerable damage was done to the van.

SNAP SHOTS. Barry is determined to become notorious. It sent two murder cases to the Cardiff Assizes this week. Mr W. Llewelyn Williams, B.A., paid a flying visit to Barry last Sunday and appeared in several criminal cases at the Assizes this week. Twenty summonses have been issued in connec- tion with the club recently visited by the local police, and the cases have been fixed for hearing on March 24th. c. Theodore Dodd," whose article appears in our present issue on City of Barry in 1920," is not the writer who adopts the same name in a con- temporary. Messrs J. Ward and T. Evans represented the Barry Council at a meeting of the National Federation of Trades and Labour Councils held at Bristol last Saturday, when Councillor J. H. Jose was nominated for the office of president for the ensuing 12 months. Last Tuesday at Penmark Parish Church the Bishop of Llandaff dedicated a new peal of bells and a beautiful stained glass window, the former being the gift of Mr D. T. Alexander, Bryneithen, Dinas Powis, and his brothers, in memory of their father, the late Mr John Alexander, and the latter the gift of Dr Neale, J.P., of Barry, in memory of his wife, and of her sister, the late Misa Matthews, of Fontigary. Pugilism at Barry is on the increase. Denny" Tobin smashed up a Cardiff man near Courtralla last Tuesday morning, and on the same day two other unofficial bouts were witnessed—one at the rear of Holton-road, and another in the Shipping Office yard. In both cases the claret flowed rather freely. The Barry District Choral Society, under the capable conductorship of Mr D. Farr, have decided to compete at the Barry Easter Monday Eisteddfod this year in the chief choral competi- tion, the test piece for which is We Never W ill Bow Down." It is gratifying also to learn that the preparations for a public performance of the beautiful oratorio, Judas Maccabeaus," by the same society, are making most satisfactory progress. The South Wales and Monmouthshire Quoiting Association held its annual meeting at Cardiff last Saturday, when the formation of sections for the ensuing year was decided, with the result that Barry, Dinas Powis, Bridgend, St Fagan's and St Bride's-super-Ely were included in section C. The international match, England v. Wales, will be played on August 7th, either at Merthyr or Mountain Ash.
DINAS POWIS NOTES. Congratulations are extended to Mr Robert Cram in obtaining the appointment as vaccination officer for the Barry district. It's another victory for a village boy A lamp in the day is an ornament, but when net lighted on dark nights it is a danger and a menace to pedestrians. More often than otherwise there is no light in the lamp at the end of Station-road, and the stranger frequently comes to grief at the spot Where are our village fathers ? The Parish Meeting passed off more quietly than usual, and unless we get another drainage scheme or common question we are likely to get into a snoozy state i KITCHENER ECLIPSED—TREMENDOUS SLAUGHTER. -Alillions of the Black Gang destroyed after one application of OWES'S KILLEM (registered).
