NOTICE.—This column is devoted to better thoughts for quiet moments. Can the wiles of Art, the grasp of Power, Snatch the rich relics of a well-spent hour ? These, when the trembling spirit wings her flight, Pour round her path a stream of living light. ROGERS.
This is truth the poet sings: that a sorrow's crown of sorrow is remembering happier things. TENNYSON. Great souls are always loyally submissive, rever- ent to what is over them only small mean souls are otherwise. CARLYLE. The man who has only himself to please finds sooner or later, and probably sooner than later, that he has got a very hard master. EARL OF DERBY. # Any life that is worth living for must be a truggle-a swimming not with, but against, the stream. DEAN STANLEY, It requires a sterner virtue than good nature to hold fast the truth that it is nobler to be shabby and honest than to do things handsomely and in debt. JULIAN H. EWING. Very sweet are the uses of prosperity, the harvests of peace and progress, the fostering sun- shine of health and happiness, and length of days in the land. JULIAN H. EWING. # Without a last hope of heavenly meeting and eternal reconciliation the life we live would be profitless-as a book left unfinished, as a song half sung, as a tale just begun. ROBERT BUCHANAN. We live in an age when to be young and to be indifferent can be no longer synonymous. The claims of the future are represented by the suffer- ing millions; and the youth of a nation are the trustees of posterity. LORD BEACONSFIELD. We always take credit for the good, and attribute the bad to fortune. LA FONTAINE. Every sin or crime has, at the moment of its perpetration, its own avenging angel, We cannot blind our eyes to it. 'Tis conscience that makes cowards of us all." There comes a day of judgment, even in this world, when it stands up confronting us, and warning us to return to the life of well-doing. SAMUEL SMILES.
Peace. The tree of peace strikes its roots into the crevices of the everlasting rock; it grows securely from that rock, and casts out its cool shadow in the sunshine, and makes sweet music in the storm, and is to the believer as the shadow of a great rock and fruit of refreshment in a weary and parched land. DR. CUMMING.
Charity. How often it is difficult to be wisely charitable; to do good without multiplying the sources of evil! To gives alms is nothing unless fyou give thought also. It is written, not blessed is he that feedeth the poor," but blessed is he that considereth the poor." A little thought and a little ktndness are often worth more than a great deal of money. RUSKIX. +
Divine Providence. One adequate support For the calamities of mortal life Exists, one only an assured belief That the procession of our fate, howe'er Sad or disturbed, is ordered by a Being Of infinite benevolence and power Whose everlasting purposes embrace All accidents, converting them to good. WORDSWORTH. ♦
Religion. Garry religious principle into common life. and common life will lose its transitoriness. The world passeth away. The things seen are temporal. Soon business, with all its cares and anxieties, the whole unprofitable stir and fever of the world," will be to us a thing of the past. But:religion does something better than sigh and moan over the perishableness of earthly things. It finds in them the seeds of immortality. JOHN CAIRD.
What is Life ? What is life ? 'Tis a delicate shell, Thrown up by eternity's flow, On time's bank of quicksand to dwell, And a moment its loveliness show. Gone back to the element grand Is the billow that brought it shore; See another is washing the strand, And the beautiful shell is no more. ANON. .»
The Advent of Spring. The groundflame of the crocus breaks the mould, Fair Spring slides hither o'er the Southern sea, Wavers on her thin stem the snowdrop cold That trembles not to kisses of the bee; Come, Spring! for now from all the dripping eaves The spear of ice has wept itself away, And hour by hour unfolding woodbine leaves O'er his uncertain shadow droops the day. She comes The loosen'd rivulets run The frost-bead melts upon her golden hair; Her mantle, slowly greening in the Sun, Now wraps her close, now arching leaves her bare To breaths of balmier air; Come Spring! She comes on waste and wood, On farm and field; but enter also here, Diffuse thyself at will thro' all my blood, And tho' thy violet sicken into sere, Lodge with me all the year I"
The Shamrock. The Shamrock is the recognised national emblem of Ireland. Very considerable diversity of opinion Exists as to what plant shall be deemed the true Shamrock, for while some believe the species known botanically as the Trifolium minus to be the typical form, others think that the Trifolium repens has a higher claim. Others again assert that both these species of clover are plants of comparatively recent introduction into Ireland, and therefore, even if now accepted as the Shamrock, they could not have been the plant that attracted the notice of Saint Patrick, whose visit is supposed to have been made somewhere about the year 440. The Wood- sorrel has been deemed by many to be the true plant. The bright green trefoil leaf of the Wood- sorrel will be found growing in our copses of woods. The plant sold as Shamrock in Covent Garden is Nonsuch. According to the legend, St. Patrick, while preaching in Ireland, failed to make his rude < hearers at all comprehend the doctrine of a Tri-une ] Deity, until, glancing downwards, he spied at his feet a trefoil leaf, and made its familiar form a symbol of the truth he would impress upon them, and ever since the conversion to Christianity, St. Patrick has been the patron saint of the nation, and the little trefoil leaf its chosen badge and emblem. ♦ —
A Poet's Vision. I hear even now the infinite fierce cborus- The cries of agony, the endless groan, Which through the ages that have gone before us, In long reverberations reach our own. The tumult, of each sacked and burning village; The shout that every prayer for mercy drowns; The soldiers' revels in the midst of pillage; The wail of famine in beleagured towns The burstir shell, the gateway wrenched asunder, The ratti ng musketry, the clashing blade- And ever and anon, in tone of thunder, The diapason of the cannonade. Is it, 0 man, with such discordant noises, With such accursed instruments as these, Thou drownest Nature's sweet and kindly voices, And jarrest the celestial harmonies ? Were half the power that fills the world with terror. Where half the wealth bestowed on camps and courts, Given to redeem the human mind from error, There were no Heed of arsenals nor forts: The warrior's name would be a name abhorred And every nation that should lift again Its hand against a brother, on its forehead Would wear for evermore the curse of Cain? Down the dark future, through long generations, The echoing sounds grow fainter and then cease; And like a bell, with solemn, sweet vibrations, I hear once more the voice of Christ say, P.tac e I LONGFELLOW.
LOCAL INDUSTRIES. Briton Slate Works. BY "PHILIP SIDNEY." In view of the great and far-reaching importance of the success of the approaching application for a grant towards the building of the much-needed Art School, on the vacant ground at the rear of our Town Hall, it will not be out of place to see what local industries in our midst will naturally benefit by the step. With this end in view it was recently my pleasure, and no less my profit, to be conducted round the various departments of this old standing centre of art and industries, of which our active townsman Alderman Peter Jones, chairman of the Technical Instruction Committee, is the head and guiding hand. Too much stress cannot be laid on the absolute necessity of doing all that is within our power towards encncouraging and developing those industries which are on the spot, and where skilled labour may find an outlet, instead of migrating to the all-ready over-crowded towns and densely populated centres of employment. To do this, schools of art and desigining are amongst the first elements to be established and supported. Why? In order that' our workmen, and draughtsmen may keep themselves well abreast of all others in this age of keen rivalry and competition. Especially so is it necessary to endeavour to keep in our midst industries such as this, which can be greatly developed by proximity to the neighbour- hood of the production of the raw material; thus saving any great amount in the cost of railway transit from quarry to bench. The Briton Works are mainly concerned in the cutting, polishing, and enamelling of slate mantle pieces, and curbs, which are here cut for all the special sizes required by the trade. The raw material comes from Corris and Dinas Mawddwy, where it is first sawn and planed before being sent down to Aberystwyth. When received at the works the slates are first sawn and measured to the sizes wanted, and then fitted together by slate masons, deft of finger and straight of eye. This done, an even surface is secured or a re- volving steam turn-table, careful and even rubbing being an absolute necessity in the factor of ulti- mate success. The enamelling process, in which the slates are lubjected to great heat in the large stoves on the premises, is one of much interest, followed as it is "by the all important hand-polishing, or process known to thrifty housekeepers as plenty of elbow grease." The colouring in imitation of various marbles, and wood grainings-walnut, mahogany, and the like—and the painting of land and sea scapes are all departments in which the school of art and design cannot but help to be of the greatest utility and benefit. Some of the coloured views of the Devil's Bridge, Castle Tower, Plascrug, and the like, are really marvels of correctness in shades and detail. However much steam may be availed of in the harder portions of labour, yet it is after all on deft- ness of the hand work, and the originality dis- played in the design of the trusses and pediments that the full beauty of the mantle piece depends. From all quarters comes the call for new designs and greater originality; and when we consider that demands reach Aberystwyth from such im- portant centres of building as Lancashire and Douglas, we cannot afford to lose any opportunity of meeting the call and keeping the production of the very best articles in our midst. It may unfortunately be the fashion in some quarters to sneer at much of Mr. Ruskin's teaching, but who will dare to gainsay that in the main the principles laid down by him which bear on work similar to this are not correct and necessary ? The better the worker, the better the work is an old and true saying, and when we remember that the majority of the regular hands employed in the Briton Works is over 20 years' service per man it will at once be seen, how beneficial it will be to see that the sons, who are to follow in the footsteps of such worthy fathers, should take every advantage of opportunity to make themselves better workers. Anyone can copy a truss or a pediment; yes, but how much more valuable the man who can produce new and correct designs ? One original worker is worth ten ordinary copy- ists one man who can strike out a new line is of far more value to his employer than the man who can but copy what another man has done in the next street. Educate, educate, educate! is the cry of the age, and its echoes are heard here in those important works, One thing which forcibly strikes any man in walking round the various departments, is the healthy, contented and respectable state of the numerous hands, facts which forcibly impress themselves as the valuable results attained by perfect good feeling which exists between employer and employed. And it is where just such a state of things exists, where good work is being done, where a valuable industry flourishes, that we see the pressing need of encouraging and fostering all educational institutions, art and design schools, &c. In one word we need to build up and not to pull down; to encourage the worker and not to find fault with him; and to benefit the master and thereby benefit the man. With this end then in view, I hope now and again to continue my endeavour to make my readers more cognisant of what local industries exist in our midst, be they woollen, or slate, milling or mining.
CORRIS. Y CYKGOR SIROL.-Y mae ymddygiad Mr. Morris Thomas yn y Cyngor Sirol dydd lau diweddaf yn hollol anesboniadwy i'r lliaws yn y lie hwn, ac yn anghysson mewn llawer ystyr. Tra yr oedd y cynghorwr John Thomas yn ceisio galw sylw at y ffaith ei bod yn anghenrheidiol gwneyd pob ymdrech i gynilo costau y sir er ysgafnhau baich y trethdalwyr wele ein cynrychiolydd ni, Mr. Morris Thomas, yn yr un cyfarfod yn codi i fyny ac yn dadleu ei oreu dros wario cant punt lie y gwnai haner cant y tro. Dyma yr hanes, ac y mae yn haeddu cael ei ddwyn ar go. Ychydig amser yn ol gwahoddodd y Cyngor Sirol berchenogion y newyddiaduron sydd yn cylchredeg yn y Sir i anfon i mewn eu prisiau isaf am gyhoeddi hysbysiadau y Cyngor. Pan gyfarfyddodd y Pwyllgor Arianol dewisant yn naturiol y ddau bapyr oeaa yn gofyn y prisiau isaf, a chymmeradwyant hyn i'r Cyngor yr wythnos ddiweddaf, ond, diolch i ymdrechion Mr. Morris Thomas a chyfoetbogion y Sir, megis Mr. Wynne, Peniarth, taflwyd allan gymeradwyaeth y Pwyllgor Arianol, a phenderfynwyd bysbysu yn y papyrau uchaf eu prisiau, sef talu wyth ceiniog y llinell am hysbysu mewn dau bapyr yn lie pedair ceiniog a dimai y llinell mewn dau bapyi arall—bron y dwbl. Meddylier am Mr. Morris Thomas yn son am living wage ac ar yr un pryd yn cefnogi cyfoethogion y Sir a'i holl hyawdledd i daflu allan gymeradwyaeth y Pwyllgor i ddewis y prisiau isaf, ac felly i ysgafnbau baich y treth- dalwyr. Living wage," yn wir, y fath ragrith. Ni soniodd Mr Morris Thomas, ein cynrychiolydd, ddim am faich y trethdalwyr ac nid ymddangos- odd ronyn o gydymdeimlad ag hwynt. Hawdd y medr Mr. Wynne, Peniartb, a'i fath dalu 4c. pan y gwna 2c. y tro ond beth am y gweithwyr 1 Dyma ffeithiau y dylesid eu cofio. Cofier mai gofyn i'r newyddiaduron am eu prisiau iselaf wnaeth y Cyngor Sirol. Nid oedd un amod yn eu hyspysiad yn dyweyd nad oeddynt 1, ya ymrwymo eu hunain i dderbyn yr isaf neu nnrhyw bris." I ba ddyben yr oedd y Cyngor yn gofyn am y prisiau iselaf os nad oedd yn eu bwriad eu derbyn ? Coficr hefyd fad y Pwyllgor Arianol wedi ystyricd y mater yn fanwl ac wedi gwneyd cymeradwyaeth gredent oedd oreu er lies y Sir yn gyffredinol. Hyn oedd eu dyled- swydd. Beth oedd dyledswydd Mr. Morris Thomas ?
