? ? I The Day's Gossip. Leader Office, Friday. Brinley Richards escaped .our thoughts yesterday, although it was, the centenary of his birth. He is principally remem- bered for his setting of the popular tune, God Bless the Prince of Wales." It was siing by crowds all over the United Kingdom on March 10, 1863, when the late I King Edward wai3 married. Since then (says a London journal) it has been re- garded as one of our national patriotic songi; We are obliged for the unusual compliment to a Welshman; but we wish our people were a litde more familiar with the anthem and its worcta. At the Mayor's luncheon last week, most of the .singers la-la'd it without shame! Brinley Richards, however, had other distinc- tions, for he wau the first Welshman to win the King's Scholarship for the Royal Academy of MusUJ. He oommenced has studies there at the age of 16, and sub- sequently rose to be one of it., ablest pro- fessors. We keep him most in remem- brance by the Songs of Wales," which he harmonised so richly that it is a sheer delight to strike the chords, notably in the martial pieces like the March of the Glamorgan Men." r A Gay Winter. I It is a sure 6ign of a gradual return to I the real days of peace and plenty that the number of social evening's, dinners, suppers, etc., arranged for the winteT i.s prodigious. Most of the local hotels have dates" for almost every week up to Christmas, and the gatherings are nearly all of the re-union order. The caterers are going to have a busy and lucrative time Hard-working Hens. I The egg-laying capability of hens owned by Mr. Bliss, the parks superintendent, would take some beating. Nine hens (3 Rhode Island Reds, 3 White Wyan- dottcs, and 3 White Leghorns) far the I year ending October 31st produced no less I' than 1,861 eggs, the average per bird being 223. The largest number of eggs for any month was produced in April, when 20,5 were obtaired; the lowest pro- duction being in November, when only 38 were obtained. The production for the remaining months ranges between 159 in February and 201 in January. The income from the sale of the eggs (aver- aged 4d. each) was < £ 31 Os. 4d., and the total expenditure (purchase of hens, poultry-corn, meal, etc.,) .£14 196. Od. A Popular Actor. Mr. Louis Calvert, the veteran actor, I who will be seen here in conjunction with his own company at the Grand Theatre in "Daddalums" next week, is no stranger to Swansea. He was here many years ago with his own company- ¡ a particularly strong one—which ap- peared at the old Star Theatre :n Wind- street. He essayed parts ranging from Lesurques in The Lyon luail" to that of breezy William in Black-Eyed Susan." "Constant Reader asks whether Mr. Calvert played here in Proof," a popular French military plav which had a long run in London and afterwards m the provinces, m which the late Mr. Wilson Barrett and the late Mr. Walter Speakman achieved great success in their respective roles; but I do not think Mr. Calvert ever ap- peared in the part of the wrongly- accused soldier. For some years past he has been in America, recently returning to the Mother Country with a sheaf of American plays. Any Chump Can Knock. The Rubber Leaf is run by a big Ohio corporation, and a Swansea- boy high upon its staff sends me the issue monthly. From its October cover, I pas on the following American wisdom- Don't, criticise your neighbour's faults, no matter what they do; Don't ridicule the masses, or maligrn the chosen few; Don't think yourself a censor of the illy hu.rnanllock- I And just remember as you go, that any chump can knock. Don't laugh at those who make mistakes. or stumble by the way. For you are apt to follow thcom-and almost any day. Don't think v the other's shifting sand while you are solid rock- And don't forget, for heaven's sake, that any chump can knock. The Evening Student. Several strange faces have been r^centiv noted by the folk who year in nnd Du' travel on the down night express from Swansea.. They are well-dressed younci 1 men, Bllcd with the joie de vivN> which is hardly controlled. A young lady may 00 horridly shocked by the sweeping bows of three young gallants linked arin-in- arm as they stroll past to their compart- ment. The platform is made merry when they arrive, and loud laughter echoes ill the rafters. During the journey the on looker's silent Quo Vadis is soon answerer. One hears strange chemical terms, a whte pered description in technical language of an erection of machinery. Power, voltage, density, cubic capacity, are worth much used, and from the conversation you glean that they are returning from even ing classes at the Technical College. One wonders whether the world of art and craft will in later years be enriched by the bright young fellows who compare notps in the train. Fisher's 11 Memories." I There are some rooks that are good for I bed-time, and there are some that act on your spirts like the song of a bugle. There are others with another' quality, a strange power of i ùv:g:ratiol1, that affect you like a day on a hill-top when the wind is playing strong pranks. FV&her's Memories "—sent me by the house of Hodder and Stoughton, and published at a guinea-is in he latter claus. I haven't breasted the last long slope of the Van for months, and though the snow calls, I do not suppose I shall stand on the roof of South Wales 1-atil the spring; but a chapter at a time of Fisher is the best substitiite open to me. What is the secret of this old man? He can write like an anpel, and can quote Scripture like a country deacon; and he can slanjr like a bargee He can love like David, and hate lke Saul. He oan be as auda- cious as Shaw and as gentle as Barrie. He lyjed. in his excitement, to shake his fist in King Edwards's face; though they were as loving pair in calf-day-* Rfght through this book, he is shaking his fist at his readers, and the strange thing about it is hat you like 'to see that big hand near rl,ur nose. For Fisher is entirely human and labs you see the whole show of his nimble mind. HA u oan't abear fools, and in quite an an- Dnglish way he is mercilessly efficient, requiring of all men the efficielj cy of l-is qiz;ck brain. Heuoe Scrap the lot Of course you ha /e to remember that he is shaking his ii. t in your face, or elne you will be shocked. The project of Copenhagening the German fleet was fist- shaking in excebis. Tho book is priced a givnea, but it contains that much, and more, of invigoration; besides, it really takes you behind the scenes and explains I what fool's we mortals be. J

Married at Swansea Registry Office in June, 1915. the petitioner said that he lived with his wife at James-street, Pontardawe, until he joined the Army in 1915. While in France he received in- formation which led him to get leave and come unexpectedly to find his zife bad Kone off to Swansea with the hild. In February this year he was demobilised, and found his wife living with the co- respondent.
