I For the Ladies. I The Blouse Fashion Fancies. One of the moe^ important item of a woman's wardrobe is the blouse, and whatever changes occur in the fashion world, -he blouse remains always at the top of the ladder. We learn tha'; there are no very g-rrat changes to report concerning the blouse this season only one or cwo features 01' a nv.iior character. Designers hove re- discovered the charm of the fichu, and -hey intend to make it popular during the winter. A very charming fancy ih is foo. There are rumours afloat as to the possibility of the wishap sleeve again having a vogue, but in is ncf. likely that many will favoxir this decree—if it does become one. Material it- not so chtfip nowadays that we can squander it n ¡ tinnece«.'sarTily big sleeves. LITTLE CHINESE COATS. I We hftar tha." tshon;. Chinese coa:.s are to take the place of the blouse tbis season. Ther ape extremely pretty. beijar fas'hioned in (the mosi- startling of bright hues. They are mads loosely, hanging and reaching just llmv the line. No trimmin.g needed: save, if desired, a little Oriental embroidery to outl;ne the neck. THE JUMPER. I Jumpers are growing shopber and shorter, and the very nicest of them now reach only just below the waist. The knitting craze still continues, and wool- len jumpers are being made in all man- ner of shapes, ihe mildest of colour | schemes being introduced. POPULAR BRUSHED WOOL. I There swm to be no end to the pos- sibilities of brushed wool. Ltappearf. on hafs, frocks, jumpers, etc. From a dis- tance it looks like white fur. Jt is ex- ceptionally smart, and will doubtless be worn quite a lot during the coming months. I HATS. Satin, velvet, and beaver seem to be the materials of the moment most used for hats. There is a contest-: between the tIlI- trimmed and the trimmed where beaver is concerned. Highly decorated veils are the vogue in Paris.

ST. JOHN'S WARD. I Mr. W. D. Ress and Municipal I Election. To the Editor. Sir,—With reference to my nomina- tion as a candidate for St. John's Ward after careful consideration it was found that. owing to the very limited time be- tween now and the date of polling, it would not be possible to efficiently organise a contest, and I considered it expedient to withdraw rather than incur in expense on the ratepayers by forcing, an election. i would like to avail myself of this opportunity to thank niv numerous friends in the ward who induced me to o,;me forward hs a candidate, and have j no doubt they will accept my frank and sole reason for withdrawing. I hope some dav to have tho honour of being one of the municipal representa- tives of the ward within which I was born and nurtured. I have never lost interest in its welfare and nnvancement. -You-a, cte., W. D. Rees. Fnirficld Haase. Mount l,leasant, Swansea, 24th October, 191D.

MEMORIAL TO A I SERGEANT. Police and Salvationist Whilst pav;ng a graceful tribute to the Swansea Salvation Army Citadel Band, the Swansea Borough Police Force ex- pressed their desire to honour the memory of a late member at an interesting little ceremony at the Police Court on Friday. A large number of Salvationists and police t)ftic,ers attended. Capt. A. n. Thomas presided, suppoi-ted by Supt. Roberts and Inspector Fielder. The Chief explained that they were gathered to perform in one sense a pleas- ant duty, but in another sense a regret- table one. It was to present to the Swan- sea Salvation Army Citadel Band an in- scribed plated cornet in memory of the late Sergt. T. Neweombe, who was a mem- ber of the band. and was an excellent police officer who performed his duties most creditably both to himself and to his officers, -kn(I i-rho,,e loss was most keenly felt by his comrades in the Force. It was thought that the most, suitable memonal would be this towards the Salvation Army, which was doing so much good work in Swansea and other towns. Supt. Roberts, Inspector Fielder, In- spector Williams, Sergt. Gunston, Sergt. J Baldsden, P.O. Price, P.C. Griffiths, and P.C. Newman paid flowing tributes to the deceased officer, whom they described, among other things, as a good man who worked quidly, a good temperance worker, a good oflicer, and a real pal to members of the Force, who all keenly felt his loss. The Chief Constable then made the pre- sentation, and in reply Adjutant Fletcher thanked the police, and said it was a fit- ting tribute to the memory of one who had lived his life well. He was held in high esteem in both the Police Force an.d the Salvation Army. ,\s a bo.v he joined the Salvation Army, and learned to play the cornet there in the band. He was a man right through. Adjutant; Fletcher said he thought the presentation showed the feeling of the police towards the Salvation Army. In accepting the cornet they did so with hearts so touched that they could D'1t ex- press themselves. They could only thank them also for the many services the SiNin- s?3, Constabulary had rendered to the town. Bandmaster Messrs. Wellington, Wilk. and Arnold also spoke. .A vote of thanks'was passed to the Chief Constable for presiding.

HARMONIOUS. South Wales Steel Trade. A slw:i.1 iiiee-fi--g of rhe Joint Board represent/ng the Soir-b Wales Siemen's SI eel Association, nnd the Iron and S-eel Trades Confederation/was held at Swan- sea on Friday aflernoon. tinder the presi- dency of fr.

The emp'jers conceded the de- mand on fhe same terms as in the tin- plaite trade, but. asked in return that the j men should grlve "very ass^tanee possible in the direction of speeding-u^) jvork and doing everything possible to obtain in- creased output, -,nfl especially mentioned the importance of men agreeing to at-j tend the works ac 10 p.m. on Sundays instead of mvdni^ht for Lh-ù llrpOEie of feeding the furnaces—a course which, in the opinion of the employers, will have R substantial effect on output, and wjl\ cause no real inconvenience to 1110 men. EMPLOYERS THANKED. In thanking th employers for the man- ner in which they had acceded to the ap- picacion of the men, Mr. Tom Griffiths, M.P., promised that the question of the Sunday might fe--ding of furnaces should he brought before the executive, and at ;he s-ame time pr< inched that, everything possible should be done in The direction of promoting efficiency in working and -'he contillnation of the harmonious feel- ing which had n the pns-t proved eo ad- vantageous to both eecHons. He also referred to the disastrous effects on industry and on the men eet)ec.:illly, of sectional action, which, so prevalent elsewhere, had been happily absen," in the Siemens steel industry—a condition of things he t.ruf) cd would continue to the interest of oil concerned especia llv of the men, who had suffered incalculJ.I\ I loss in Seotland. the Xo.rth of England, and in Monniout.hsh're.

THE YOUNG HOPES Naval Brigade Boy's Determination. By "ANCHOR'S WEIGHED})' A few days ago the value cf pemeverano was clearly illustrated by the Commodor (Lieutenant John Hodg-ens. O.B.E.) -,el he related am interesting story of a Jiava. Brigade boys determination to succeed. II• was an energetic, enterprising voutj, in clined to be studious, yet possessing ci<s.i?rt>< ideas of the position he wished to occupy Although at that time his prospects "H anything but rosy owing to the narrowing effect of environments UNDAUNTED BY FA! LU RE.?': During the years speiit in the Naval Rx-isade hfe qualifications were well teSt-ed. Md tlie interest taken in his career enabled him to place his application at the right nuarter. But, being only seventeen, he was doomed to disappointment, for his service* were refused on account ot his youth. Uji- daunted by failure. &ix months later. he made another attempt, and this time were raised, as everything appeared to be entirely in his favour. The armistice, however, once more upset arrangements, as reorganisation conllnnced and there were no vacancies available for newcomers. The disappointment was very; bitter, yet, nevertheless, be bravely carried on until a few months azo he obtained, through sheer pa-tience and perseverance, the position he wished to occupy. The moral Ðf this true story suggests that if sloth had been allowed to become a stumbline block to 6iiooess, resulting in 411 easy yielding to <drcuii((Stanc«s, a.nd freedom of action would then have remained fettered to tho end of the chapter: The main thing after deciding upon a career is to set out unwaveringly to find ,.tie be&t manner of gaining knowledge to equip yourself for the new dntkw, as care- lessness in these matters often epoilltlie brightest prospects. Therefore, do not be discouraged by failures, but try, try, Jtry again, for success is always eweet-er after surmounting difficulties. SIGNALS. The programme of work for the coming winter has now been fully arranged, and any boys wishing to join the signal claims had better avail themselves of the oppor- tunity as the course commences. Some fresh apparatus has just been secured, which include sets of electric signal laml)- electric buzzers. etc., which have been fitted up in the various rooms of the.Castle. Instructor J. Aubrey Bees endeavours to vary the work as much as possible, to keep the boys interested. He has already don* this by the various means of signalling. A message can be transmitted by flag from one station to another, passed by lamp to another station, end finally transmitted bv electric buzzer to the signal office. By this means each boy ha, a. chance to secure the knowledge of working the various instru- ments. Another interesting section of these clashes are a aeries of lectures given by Instructor J. Aubrey Reee, illustrated bv blackboard drawings and diagrams. The boys take a keen interest in these lectures, a glance at their notebooks will show. which are always examined by the rn. structor and any mistakes corrected. Any boy wishing to iiin tlie class fhou:d report at the Castle at seven o'clock on Thursday evenings- SINGLE STICK DISPLAY. The ).; a \al Brigade boys taorougb ly enjoy single stick contests., and practice is making many of them experts in the art of fencing. A very good exhibition of loose play was given at Headquarters last week, and the Commodore and Chief Instructor Ash- bury were pleased to see that with but two exceptions they all maintained their original positions in the ranks throughout the attack and defence. C.L.B. NOTES. By If OBSERVER." The restarting of the one-time very pros- perous company which flourished in the Mumbles has been talked of for some time, and now seems to be on the point of metitring. The Vicar r.. Oystermouth, who has acted as correspondent for the Company durirg the period of ite inactivity, has been keen on its being reformed, and has several time.,3 approached local gentlemen who have been closely connected with the club in the old days, with that object in view, but they have not been in a position to make a move until the present. It is understood that Mr. Tom Evans, who has had much experience cf Church Lads' Briffade work. will undertake to put the Company on working lines again, and he will be assisted by the Bev. Victor Wil- lia.ms and one or two ex-Service men who have had previous C.L.B. connections. Mr. Ifor -MasIon has also been mentioned as being interested, and he told me he was quite prepared to undertake work if it could be arranged, and intends to offer his services to this end. Major Thomas will be more than pleased at this revival, for his work and attention to the Company in days of old was well known, and he is a big favourite with the gitmbles C.L.B.-ites. On Tuesday, the Adjutant, Major Williams, paid a visit to the newly-formed Company at Penllergaer, who have now completed the reouired nnm- ber of probation drills, and his visit was for the purpose of completing; thb neces- sary forme for their enrolment. These will be duly signed this week by the Vicar, and they will then be forwarded to Head- quarters in London. MAKING PROGRESS. He tells me the Company is getting along splendidly, end is to be congratulated on having a good membership and a number of suitable candidates for commissions and warrant officer ranks. Tbey have formed an Association Football Club, and are open for fixtures with teams of their own age. J have no doubt St.. Mary's will fix up two dat.ee with them. • On Sunday the Company will hold a, church parade, when the Rev. Howelis, Morriston, will preach. The reverend gpntleman,is very interested in C.L.B. work, and has some excellent ex- perience in the Morriston Company, and will no doubt interest the boys on this occa-sion.
