The Day's Gossip. Leader" Office, Saturday. Swansea, we read, is to pay the Duke of Beaufort £ 10,000 for liis Grace's foreshore right& in Swansea Bay. The price, no doubt, is fair, writes a correspondent of mine, Mr. Paul Jocclyn Burton, and the Duke, no doubt, is entitled to it. But, as a matter of history, if not of finance, it would be in- foresting to know how it has come about that the town must now buy back at such a cost what once was largely its own. In the 12th century (1153-11811) the burgesses received from the Earl of Warwick, then Lord Paramount, a free gift of all the sands below (query he- tween :) Pulkanan and Blackpill for the making of their fisheries." The charter may be read in full at the Public Library in Clark's Charters and Muniments of G lamorgan." volume 3, page 95. The original is etill extant, and may be in- spected at the Public Record Office, Chancery-lane, London, Exchequer, Kins'e Remembrancer, Miscellaneous Books, volume I., folio 478. An Omen. The conversation at lunch turned on the hysterical prophecy of the end of the world, so current at pro-sent, and Joseph, from Dublin, asked John, from ayont the Tweed," if he h?d any belief in it. Ah think there's verra little to it. but my season rins oot that day," was John's reply. Back to Botany. Dame Helen Gwynne-Vaughan, wlin succeeded Mies Violet Douglas-Pennant as Comandant of the Women's Royal Alt Force in September, 1918, aspires to be ilrofe., sor of Botany in the University of Aberdeen, where she was examiner in that lhject for four years before the war. She was also head of the Botany Department rtt Birkheck College. A year ago 6he was beginning to take flying lessons. Expensive Specialists. I wonder if all the Harley-street specialists propose to fall in with the recommendation of the Council of the British Medical Association and increase their foes 50 per cent. on pre-war rates? Many of the more famous men have aLrpady anticipated this recommendation by charging X3 3s. instead of £2 2s. as a I minimum fee for a consultation in their own consulting rooms, and if this becomes general there are thousands of people who will have to rely solely on the advico of their local practitioner. A Scathing Satire. Unquestionably one of the most scathing satires on the Modern Welshman is The riague of the Apes." which appears in Y Geninen." Broadly speaking, the writer would have us believe that the Welshmen who ape Saxon Philistinism in its idods and fashions have degenerated into apes, thus:- The London Welshman.-Orr guide t-i-ood at the entrance of one of the largest shops which needs must have half the r length of the street to display its warns. 8aid he: "Let us go within and see's Welshmen." We entered; and though w? searched as minutely for a needle in a havstack, we heard not a single word of Welsh. And the spirit of Llywelyn (last Prince of Wales) sighed and said-. Welshmen own all these shops; but they are Welshmen in whom the ape has grown stronger than the men, inasmuch as Saxon pomp hath bewitched them, and their manhood has become submerged by their lust for gold." I, too, sighed; and for a while we roamed from one drapery estab- lishment to another, and then to the milk i ships; but nowhere found we other than | the ape exercising authority. Then e.iid Llewelyii: Come thou. The Anglic- ised Welshmen's drapery shops is no place for thee. for here the womanlike ape rubs his hands. Let as leave him. A man measuring out ribbons! A man selling women's grtwns! What wonder that the ape should have obtained the upper hand! Prince Albert. f Prince Albert, the King's second son, will celebrate his twenty-fourth birthday to-morrow. H is appearances in public have been frequent of late, and no doubt a.* time goes on and his elder brother gets more and more busy, we shall see him taking a more prominent part in public dfail's. During the war. it will be re- membered. he saw service use sailor. and h" was present at the Pattle' of Jutland. Lfster he took np aviation, perhaps be- cause his taste for mechanics made the, technical side of the business appeal to him. I am told that in his Navy days :iit; favourite spot aboard ship was the engine- room, and hi? delight in the mechanical side of battleships earned for him the neck name of Dirty Bertie." A Military Amnesty. r Undoubtedly there is something very attractive in the suggestions being con- sldered at the War Office 'for a military icnine,tv-a decree wiping out whatever unexpired balance there may be of im- prisonment for purely military offences No doubt there arc difficulties in the way. and there ought to be no attempt made to stunt the War Office into a hasty deci- sion; but it may hp believed that thfc i, ])(,in- considered with a leaning towards mercy. Tt ma-i be said, in any case, that the rule followed should be an equal one for all: and since there have been cases, admittedlv, where members of Overseas forces in nrisnn for serious mili- tarv crimes have had their sentences re- ) m if ted in order that they mig-ht be re- patriated, British soldiers imprisoned for similar offences ought to be treafe-I on the same basis. Tf is necessary to dis- cipline that certain. military crimes should be punished very severely indeed during the continuance of the war; but the coming of peace rather alters the case. I and no doubt this fact will lie taken into consideration. > The Sovereign Remedy. If a Treasury note were equal in pur- chasing power to that of the sovereign in (it her days that have now gone by, and if sit, the same time, existing rates of wages could be maintained, we would all be at least twice as well off as we are at the ? present moment. Is that possible? To I answer the question ye need to consider why the sovereign, and its representative, the Treasury note. have deteriorated in value. There are, inflated currency— f that is, a disproportionate number of money units over the commodities they represent, restrided markets, and in- rcases of costs, among which are wages. It seems paradoxical to say that if there wore less money about, we would be richer, but that appears to be the fact. ki to markets, while large areas ip Europe have been ruined in this regard. the seas are again free and other markets ere available for import and export, es- pecially the great South American QaJI- linent. The Profiteering Act will, doubt- less, do all that can be done to limit ex- cessive profits, and ensure that value [ shall not too rapidly accumulate in the f. hands of a comparatively small section. There remains only wages; the problem, however, is to secure all the other advan- tages without their redundation. The way io do this is by a maximum production, ( coupled with a reasonable economy in the ] consumption of goods and services of all kinds. Are either of these being attended to? Together they represent the straight • and narrow pathWhat lead6 to a more life.
AMUSEENTS. I Round the Swansea Picture Halls and Theatres. EMPIRE. Roxy La Rocca heads the list of at- tractions at the Swansea Empire next week, and is practically a new-corner to British variety. He hails from that Lmcl of artistic temperament, Italy, bringing with him a remarkable ability to play the harp, and justly earning the sobriquet of the wizard of that instrument. Daly and Healy, the clever speciality dancers, who scored big successes at Drurv Lane Theatre, .with their brisk act in which plenty of comedy abounds. A turn of considerable interest has been engaged in Gwyn Thomas, a Welsh boy, possesang j a wonderful voice. Charles Norton brings an entertainment in itself. The Geert Brothers too with their sensational dis- play of acrobating, Hector and Lolletta eiitertaine-i-s and patterers on their un- supported ladders, Wells and Eclair Twins, and the latest news picainjj, com- plete the bill. THE GRAND. Judging from the enthusiasm shown at rehearsals, the success of the Swansea Amateur Operatic Society's week at the Grand Theatre next week, is already as- sured. Under the energetic tuition of Mr. Barlow, and the clever stage-management or Mr. G. Wlieatcroft, the company has been working hard for the last week or so, and there is every indication that when they open on Monday night they will be prepared to give one of the best amateur performances ever witnessed in Swansea. The promoters have been wise in select- ing such a Gilbert and Sullivan classic as The Yeomen of the Guard." They have also been most judicious in the selection of the principals and the sup- porters, and next week will hear in the cast such favourites as Miss Doris Fricker, Mrs R. Morgan, Miss Maurice Clark. Miss Elsie Harries, Messrs. W Curtis. Baker, J. McSweeney, P. Vivian Lloyd, C P. PaiiMr. and A. Bennett. Owing to the precaution of the committee in ap- pealing in advance for subscribers, the hooking- is already very satisfactory, and those local play-goers who intend being present at any of the performance. would do well to make sure cf their seats at once. THE ELYSFUM. The enterprising management of the popular Elysium Flail still upholds their reputation as entertainment caterers. Next week's bill of fare will provide lovers <-f good, clear pictures with a fine feast. i The place of merit for the first part of ;,lip week will be held by an absorbing ,Im,nia, The Glorious Adventure," with Mae Marsh in the title role. The second feature will he a Triangle production pn- titled The Sawdust Ring." featuring Miss Bessie I.ore. Tt is a beautiful story, and well enacted. "Eimo the Mighty." serial film. has already won all ronnd mipreeiation. and those who have been following it from the start eagerly wait every week for the next episode, so thril- ling is the nieture. and next week's epi- sode will show Elmo, aided by Lucille, continuing his operations against the swindlers who have ruined the good nalD" <>!■' Lucille's father. The masked ritlor is a great favourite in this-picture, and his darincr feats win loud applause. Other fine films will also be screened. For the week-end another star programme has been arranged, and the top of the bill ivill be a powerful entitled U Hflr Second Husband" The Love Brokers and "Hondini" serial will also be shown. THEATRE ROYAL. I Always to the fore with all the best and latest films obtainable, the Royall has secured a fine series for the t'omtllg I wec?. For the first three days a power- fnl production entitled "The Sudden? Gentleman holds the place of merit. Screened in fire part the story is a most. exciting one, whilst the acting :nd staging effects are remarkably clever. Episode 5 of the thrilling serial film. The Lightning Raider," featur- ing Pearl White, will prove most excit- ing, and the followers of this fine story should not miss the future parts as they are full of exciting and thrilling inci-1 dents. The second feature is a five-reel,, I'oniedy-drama, "Betty Be Good," fea- turing Jackie Saunders. The comedy side vill prove a very fine one, and end- less ainn-ement is to he found in the comical antics of Mark Swain in the two-reel Keystone entitled Thirst." and Pat-he's Gaette containing all the latest news. For the week-end, the pro- gramme promises to be quite up to the usual standard, the star picture being "Borrowed Clothes," also Ethel Clay- ton in The Mvstery Girl," Winkle in Kickini the Germ of Germany." and episode 11 The Silent Mystery," fea- turing Francis Ford. CASTLE CINEMA. ,0 I William Rilssell will bo seen as the I .5tar in Hobbs in a Hurry," the latest I Flying A super-production, which is the chief atirao'ion at the Castle on Monday. | Tuesday, and Wednesday next -week. The story deals with an imp tuous oung man's adventures mostly concerned with the purchase of a mine. Wm. Russell does Forie extremely clever and sen'=a- tional acrobatic stunts notably on the top of a moving train, and appears to advant- age in a part which no other actor could undertake with such success. This picture will sustain the interest all the way through, and will give many thrills and many laughs. The second feature it entitled, Three X Gordon," starrimg Ae popular romantic actor. J. Warren Kerrigan. In this production Kerrigan has a unique opportunity to display a versatility in his remarkable acting, as the character he portrays demands a con- vincing change from drama to comedy which lie interprets with a master touch, Tn addition to these big productions there I will be a selection bf the late-t comedy and topical films. Two very fine films will also be shown on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, viz-" Old Loves for Xew" a Triangle drama in which Margery Wilson plays the leading role, and The Small Town Guy a five act Taylor Holmes. comedy drama. CARLTON. i At the CarltQH next week two strong programmes will be presented. Convict I M." featuring Wyndham Guise and Daisv J)nrrell. "ill I sereenoo. The story is a particularly interesting one. dealing with a series of events which keep the atten- tion of the audience rivetted from start t to finish. The murder mystery is splen- j didlv developed, the tripl scene at the Old > Bailey being most vividly depicted. In the end all is put right; the hero and the heroine, after many hard trials, are made happy, and villainy meets with its just reward. Also a photo-play, brimful of interest, is Hide and Seek." a two-reel comedy, and other splendid films. For the I bitter part of the week, The Crimson Gardenia." a Rex Beach story, featuring Hedda Nora and Tom Moore. The great serial, The Lightning Raider." episode five, featuring Pearl White. who performs some of the most daring feats. There will be several other very beautiful and attrac- tive film, PICTURE HOUSE. I Henry Walthall, who^e wonderful per- formance as the little colonel in Griffith's I Tho Birth of a Nation still stands as the most delightful characterisation ever given to the. screen, will be the star at the Picture House on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday next, in his latest pic- ture, "And a Still, Small Voice." As Clay Randolf he gives a remarkable characterisation of this gentleman of the South; a man with whom honour comes before all else. But he sees that the girl he loves admires another man, and because lie knows that this man has embezzled funds, he himself takes the blame that no stain may fall on her j name. Mr. Walthall is supported by an exceptional cast, which includes 'tritzi Brunehl', George Fisher and Joseph F, i Dowling. The Girl Dodger," featuring Charles Ray. Thursday.

I The Y.M.C.A. programme for next week I is full of variety, and is just suitable for the patrons of this hall, including as it does the renowned star, Gladys Hulttte in His Majesty the Baby," a story of how a baby succeeds to the throne of a small kingdom. The old Regent plans to seize the throne and depose the tiny king. Princess escapes with the baby, and con- ceals him in a peasant's cottage. The young officer who helped her is arrested and condemned to death, but escapes. The Regent's spies discover the hiding place of the king, but the Princess circum- i vents them. and the young kmg comes to I his own. The part of Princess is played by Gladys TTulotte. Other films are The Customary Two Weeks," with Robert Tvllis in the principal part; Eddie Lyons in Boulevard Speedhounds," which is well worth paying a visit to see, as it is one huge scream; and Andy Falls in Love I is another reel of good comedy. Next Thursday will be screened the famous photo-play, Jaffery." with Eleli no- Woodruff in the leading part I
h I Children's Corner. i I I BY UNCLE JOHN I I MY OWN PORTRAIT. I I 50W that we are settling down into a big I family circle, it is only natural that we snoiiid begin to omimeiit the vails cf toe Children's Corner" with picture? and portraits. I had been thinking for some time of doing something to bring us into eitill closer touch, when Uncle Harold, the artist, came in one day to have a chat II with-me. 1 woa-s busy at the time, so he wo.itetf patiently and sat watching me. .When 1 was quite ready to talk nicely to him he handed me a sketch portrait of Uncle John bu-sywhich he had made. But that was not all. He went upfitaire I to the a:rti.t'lj room afterwards, and had a few minutes' gossip with Uncle Stanley. 1 Then the two met Uncle J.D.W. and Uncle I I William, and, between them, they agreed I to present to me ajid to all my nephews and nieces of the Children's Corner," a drawing of myself as the head of the "Corner" family. Uncle Stanley had actually used Uncle Harold's sketch to make a metal block of it for the leader." Here it ie:— "UNCLE JOHN" BUSY T will not trouble you with the specch I delivered in returning thnnks to them on your behalf. Of courwc, it was line, and it so impressed them that I feel sure we shall soon have other portraits presented to us. So we will wait for further pictures from) them. and juat glance at the little letters on the table. Artiiii. tseber, Iona House, Borough-road, | Lovghor,, writes:— Dear Uncle .John,-l have not written to you this long time, and now I will send you it. piece of poetry and a good joke. 11 THE OLD, OLD SONG. I When all the world is young, lad, I And all the trees are gr. And every goose a swan, lad, And every lass a queen; Then, hey for boat and horse, lad, And round the world away; Young blood must, have its course, lad, And every dog its day. Dear Uncle John,—I am sending some stories ortl riddles, and I hope to win some- thing I sent in before, but did not have an answer. I VERY SAD. I Mother (who ha-s heard the eound of sobs I coming from the bed-room); Why, whatever is t,he matter my dear? Have you had a bad dream? Bobbie: Boo-hoo, yea! I dreamt I had a lovely big bag of toffee, but I woke up before I bad time to eat it. A LITTLE iVFTSTAKE. I Willie Fly (who had accidentally flown under a water-cart): Dear, dear! How suddenly the weather changes in thost- parti! Why, only just now the snn was shining, and now I've run into one of the worst thunder storms I've known for a lonz time. I NOT A BAD ANSWER.

TO COME SOOX, I When we have a little more room, we I will give the poetry, Mary Jones and Her Bible," by Mr. 0. E. Hughes. Mumbles.
For the Ladies. ] Newest Vanity Bags. I The new vanity bags are, to say tlie least, sensational. Some m them are made of wonderful Indian or Cltinle-se silk, heavily embroidered with email carved ivory images perche(I upon them. Some of these images are quite remark- able specimens of carving, and have weird, ferocious faces, while others are like the men of the land from which they rome-bland. smiling, inscrutable. The powder-puff handkerchief is another in- novation. These have scallops hound with silk, and are printed with delicate flower designs, but their exact value as I a camouflage for the powder-puff is ditti- cult to determine. CHEST PROTECTORS. I An alternative to the ubiquitous woollen scarf, and one which has the advantage of being decidedly neat, is the large knitted turnover collar with a long panel in front. It is, in fact, a glorified chest protector, which fills in the space at the throat. and gives the needed extra warmth out of doors. Some are in brushed wool, and very attractive they are, too. BOOTS BEING WORN. Boots light in weight as well as texture, and coming well up the leg, are now being worn for afternoon dancing. These are more open in front, and are fastened with little straps, uttolling on each t'ide of the instep. Patent leather boots with cloth tops are still de rigour. POPULARITY OF SUEDE. Suede sti.11 retains its popularity, and some very pretty designs will be seen during the coming spring. Chocolate will be as great a favourite a-s black. A pretty walking/shoe is one which has three small straps, one round the ankle, and two which cross the foot, the three meeting on the instep, and fastening with a buckle or stone ornament. Perforations in all patterns appear on many shoes, on the cai>s and instep straps,, while c'hers have long tongues, wliimi are perforated, and finished with a fringe of the leather or kid used. THE BUSINESS WOMAN'S WARD. I ROBE. The business woman and others who realise only too well the value of money delight in the present attitude regarding dress, for it certainly tends to economy. t'nei's wardrobe does not need to be so well stocked, and also a satin or crepe-de- cliino frock (provided, of course, it is not so elaborate as to call forth remark) can be worn during office hours, which is a decided convenience when the wearer has an evening engagement. Then a char- meuse frock can lie obtained at less cost than a gown of gabardine, the best quality of the material used in the former costs nowadays about 22s. a yard, while. 35s. a yard is the price charged for -the best gabardine. And at home or by the little dressmaker" soft, clinging satins and, crepe-de-chines can be successfully handled, but the skill of an expert-and expensive—costumier is required for a smart, well-cut gabardine dress.
