The Day's Gossip. I Leader Office. Thursday. When I read the alarmist telegrams in the Times about the real meaning of the Hindenburg demonstrations in Ber- lin, about the 700,000 men known to be under arms, and about a military Monarchist plot, I recall a conversation with a Belgian officer in Aachen last August. U What does Germany think of the ex-Kaiser to-day ? he was asked. He replied that he was loved from one end of the country to the other. Another Bel- gian officer scouted the statement; but it seems that there was an element of truth in his diagnosis of the situation. The difficult question is: How much truth? 12 Miles-70 Minutes. I One morning this week, r a correspon- dent of mine asserts, the train leaving Pontardulais at 8 a.m. arrived in Swan- tea at 9.10. Excellent travelling for reople with the disposition of Job-but the Pontardulais people I know are not lie that! My correspondent tells me that the train is occasionally held up out- side Victoria Station; and that some of the passengers now leave dt at Swansea Bay, and walk into town. The only remedy I oau suggest is a Pontardulais petition to the L.-N.W.R. Co. Canon Barnes.. I It is a long time since Swansea has heard such a sermon as the Master of the Temple delivered to an almost full con- • gregation at St. Mary's last evening. it was almost more of a treatise, that touched most sides of the Disestablish- ment question and (it transpired before the peroration) was given at the sugges- tion of the Bishop of St. David's. It was so orderly, of such admirable form and phrasing, the thinking was so closely compacted, that it gave no reliefs at all in the attention it demanded from its hearers, and I shali be surprised if most of them do not turn eagerly to the Press reports to-day so that they may give to the comprehensive utterance the leisurely attention it deserves. There was every evidence of careful prepara- tion. The speaker's eyes were not for long together lifted from his manuscript. His pale, intellectual, angular lace was almost impassive, his high-pitched, ratner drawling voice rarely altered in tone, his delivery rarely varied in pace. He gave the impression oi looking be- yona, rather than at, his congregation, as it the message, once thought out and framed, was more important than tJ^v. liis only smiles were graceful, pleasant ones for those who escorted him .0 the pulpit, his only lignt comment the one in which he said he could not find third alliterative adjective he needed. Alto- I gether a very impressive yersonality, uaving albeit little of the personal mag- I netism of some of the great I o'i,,Fs Swansea likes. His message is fcliieiy to be forgotten for a long time. 41 D. L. H. P t I The success of the discharged soldiers' training scheme seems to me to be at any rate justified in connection with the handicraft section of the work. I think 1 can safely congratulate Mr. D. L. Harris, the manual superintendent to the Swansea bducation v/oiniuittee, on the fact that five of his discharged sol- diers were all successful in the recent special examination arranged for them by the London City and Guilds. D.L.H." displays a high conscientious- ness and unseltifeh interest in the welfare of these ambitious craftsmen, and i have had it whispered to me that the success of every man out of the number train- ing is not far short of a reqord for \V ales. Being one of the many thou- sands who have lost gifted sons through the ravages of war, Mr. Harris makes it a personal responsibility that all the men who have fought tor their country who I' come to him tor advice and kindly help ?halt at least be given a chance to prove their worth. He is the guide, philo- sopher and friend" par excellence, the boys tell MO. Apathetic Gower Farmers? I I- Milk, una nwik production, occupied tDfI attention of the Gower Food Committee tor a considerable time the other day, and I was rather surprised to find that to all intents and purposes the farmers of the Peninsula do not go in for scientific milk production. At any rate, Mr. Walter Williams, of the South Wales Food Com- missioner's staff, expressed surprise at the tact rthat either apathy or dislike pre- vented the worthy Gower husbandmen i t orn going in for dairy work with method and organisation. Those who do produce I milk on a large scale use old fashioned I prinü¡p!05, and seem entirely averse from mtroducing newer and more up-to-date methods, a fact to be deplored in these t imes of scarce a.nd dear milk. I should be greatly d'sappomted. however, to think that the facts are as well-founded as the Divisional official made them out to be, and would imagine that carefully dissemi- nated propaganda would contribute in a I large degree to the education of Gower farmers in scientific dairy work. The feeding of milk-producing cattle is a tick- lish problem just now, when the cost of the various stuffs is so enhanced, and it is evidently due to this important con- sideration that farmers prefer to use available fodder and dispense with large supplies of rich milk I H. G. Well's Latest. I Scattered throughout Mr H. G. Wells's social writings are numerous indications of his dissatisfaction at the manner in which history is taught. And in truth it is a miserable way. When I was in school I had a few English dates driven into my head. but never a suggestion about our own Welsh history, and of course nothing of European or American history. Mr. Wells has pleaded for years the neoo of a universa l history, a work that will teach us com- prehensively and not sectionally, the story of the world; and now he has got to work upon such a project himself. From the house of Newnes I have been sent the first part of his Outline of History," which is to be published at fortnightly intervals. Part I. deals with the making of our world. It is written in plain language, stripped of technica- lities, and promises a most useful work. The first number leaves off the tale just before the coming of man; it will be in- teresting to see, in the next, how Mr. Wells gets on with the theologians I Mr. Chinaman. I A diminutive visitor from the Celestial Empire, evidently a ship's cook, who shivered in the cold November afternoon, despite' a ragged fur coat and woollen gloves, was puzzling ont the name in big metal letters above the Mackworth Hotel in High-street, but he hopelessly shook his head in perplexity, for our shop names and signs differ greatly from the flowery advertisements of his native land, such PI'i the "Teashop of Celestial Principles." the Mutton Shop of Morning Twilight," the Shop of the Nine Felicities." The Chinaman comprises the soul of a poet with the nocket of a showman. > _L

GUARDIAN'S METAPHORS. Neath Outdoor Relief Doubled. During the last twelve months out- door relief has doubled itself," said Mr. Morgan R. Morgan, at a meemof the Neath Board of Guardians on Wednes- day. There is a revision committee on Tuesday next, and I hope every member will be present, prepared to tackle the problem, and endeavour to stem the tide so furiously rising around us and threatening to swamp us. We are on the quicksands of financial disaster, and unless we endeavour to :ave the situation we shall be neglecting our duty as custodians of the public purse." Without comment the members of the committee ororaised to attend.
