t ￼ t The Day's Gossip. I Leader Offico,. Thursday. Vvnenever the world ends it will net be on the 17th, and, as the scare-mongers did not offer an optional date, I suppose the most credulous will to-night sleep in com- fort. It is a striking comment on the state of the country's nerves that the story obtained so much credence. No one has yet saddled the blame on the Germans, but, were it not for the fact that those who suffered the most knew the least about him, one would be tempted to blame Einstein for' upsetting our beautifully balanced Newtonian theories and making way for Professor Porta. e did not see the sun, let alone the sun-spot, which was a scientific fact, but it was a providential mercy that we did not by a coincidence iiave a fierce thunderstorm, or some people I would have been in a state of panic. Nothing could have been more normal and homely than yesterday's depressing mist and rain; one felt assured that Swan- sea was carrying on as usual.. Instead ot the end of all things we reached the begin- ning of many with the granting of the University Charter. That will be an easy local date to remember. The Turner Drawinys. To many a soldier the .present loan exhibition in the Glynn Vivian Art Gal- lery will stir up as many war memories as the battle pictures in tho Dc-lett Francis Gallery did, for the special in- terest of the Turner drawings is in the orthWales scenes, but what dif- ferent memories! To those who know Nortii Wales as a hoimay resort the col- lection is equally interesting, ior Turner seems to have followed the recognised route oi the modern tourist, and stoppcli to look at the same things from lJtan- gollen to ,13e(tigeiel.t. tiis most boauti- itil work is devoted to DolOaaaru Castle, oi WDICll there are three pictures unaei sugntfy daieieut titles, two ot tiiem oe- iiiji practically the same view only that one brings ouowuou iuuj prominence. grie.ance of the casual visitor to a collection oi turner ur?wings, such :? lho 1Wllh ar t,he late ?ai?r?, ? t,.?.t ?u many are unfinished, but lovers ot i?an- Oeris will huu. one gloriously nmsntMi water-colour of the solitary round tow* > on tne baniis of iiyii reus. lUere vie two views oi the V aie ot Liiangolien, one of JJinas braii (,Crow tJastwj, witn ifie Dee in the loreground anti tne hills to. warcis iuiabon in the background, and the other of the ruins oi vale trucis with JJmas iiran in tHe background.

Lake Quellyn7 L_ As you appiOacn anowaon me nisi out- runner of the big mountains that the pedesirian sees is Moei Hia?d, and Turner "has painted it from the road near Capei Curig. As I came to Beddgeiert over Snowcion, my first impression wa.,i that it was the prettiest village I ad ever Seen, but with night the trees and the mountains gave a feeling of blackness and depression, and this is the mood in which Turner has painted the old church, just faintly lit up by moonlight. There it sjnister look about the.. On his way to of which there "are paintings of the Castle, Turner must have stopped at Llyn Quellyn (.to use one sys- tem of orthography), and the fact has caused the catalogue compilers great trouble. There are two views of the lake which they query and mark Lake Cwellyn" ( P)--one is a larger copy of the other—and another, which was originally described as Skiddaw, is now given as Snow-don from Lake Quatlilyn." With- out detracting from the value of the picture at all, it might have been called Auy mountain from any lake." How- ever, it provides an interesting problem for local experts in North Wales topo- graphy. Unfinished Pictures. I There are a couple of pictures only lutli painted. There is always a romantic feel about an unfinished picture, besides the value it has as an insight into an artist' methods. It is like a peep into Turner's studio. There is more romance about the pencil marks that were intended to he hidden from the public gaze than the com- pleted sketch which was meant for ex- hibition. I The Missing Boat. I The terrifying experience that befel the two H.G.A. men in endeavouring to return to the Mumbles Head Fort on Monday afternoon illustrates well the peculiar action of the tides upon minor currents And the like. Of course, all sorts of theories have been advanced as to the probable circumstances of the mishap, and the loss of the rowlocks of the little boat rendered what must have been an already precarious situation doubly dangerous. The fact is that the currents abounding along the fringe of our rocky Gower «oas< I are absolutely treacherous at this time of I the year, and the most experienced native ) cannot gauge their strength and direction I with any certainty. Considerably less i-hance had those two gallant soldier* whose sojourn on the Fort had only leen of a few months' duration, and vho I probably knew nothing of the waters be- yond the Sound. Their short but nerve- racking adventure reads like an episode I in Poe's Narrative of a Gordon Pym." i I With the Poacher. i T'm ,,oin' afishin'. Will you come?" ) Of course we'll come! So we left the old j poacher's cottage, with its gabled porch j and its thatched roof, in which the spar- ■ rows chirped excitedly, no doubt discuss- I mg the housing problem. The night was 'j dreary, and a fitful wind blew from over j -il-.e sand-hills. The water meadows looked J dark and forbidding. Only an occasional wave of moonlight came over the valley, to gleam on the rippling waters, as we I made our way upstream Now and again I an owl sailed by. slowly flapping its grey wings and occasionally adding to the un- I canny scene with its weird cry. Hon! Hon!" He had a lot to tell us. had the old poacher, though I mustn't tell you of I his fishing exploits.- Oh, dear no! He told how the village folk regard the night with superstitious awe—the scream of the I vixen, the tremulous call of the harp, the whistle of the otter to her cubs (all well known to him) as the unearthly lamenta- I tions of souls in torture.— Roamer/* < The Phantom Waits. They were playing Good King Wence- slas," and playing it very well indeed. The night was foggy enough to make the householder generous. He pitied the first violin's chilled fingers and the cornet soloist's frozen toes. So he handed out a shilling to the collector, and said that the band must be having a pretty parrotty time. Not they." he said. They're in a motor van, covered up. It's we col- lectors as gets the rough of it." Sure enough, the sound of an invisible motor I van getting under way came to the house- holder's ears. With a hoot from the horn, a nd\ The First Noel" well under way, the latest thing in wails stridently stole into the cext street.
