The Day's Gossip. "Leader" Office, Tuesday. the parsing of Swansea's magistrates' clerk, Mr. Jenkin Jones, recalls to the mind of one who knew him well many incidents. Mr. Jones was considered by all who knew him as one of the foremost magistrates3 clerks in rhe country. Ho was punctuality personified, and the police court under his direction whs one of the public institutions in Swansea which started sharply to time, except on those rare occasions when there was a dearth of magistrates. He was always patient with a defendant. Jle considered that a man who had been allowed to have his say, although the decision jhad been against him, left the court with the satisfaction that he had been given a fair trial. In his day Mr. Jenkm Jones was considered one of the best dre.¡;.<f.'d men n- the town. Several of our most success- rut advocates oire much to the assist- ance given til-Ill by him on their initial I appearance at the police court. Where Business is Bad. While in most businesses Christmas 'I time has meant a great rush, one cla&s ,,( manufacturers and cradeMuen com- plain that trade is very dull. They are aie house furnishers. One of the leading upholstery manufacturers in Swansea on Saturday said there was an absolute dump in trade, the reason being that as no new houses are being built, there is I nu demand fcr furniture. There are I some hopes of orders in the spring for re-I aa>ations, but? on the whole, the im- l mediate outlook 16 dark. There is 10 dc-ubt but that in a few yeaiis a great I quantity of furniture will be required, i bat the question is: How can the trade Irlaintnin itself in n¡e meUnriJlle?Ordi-¡ nary prudence suggests the inadvisa- bilitv of piling up huge stocks, in hopes of future demand, because no one knows I whether prices of raw material may not i come down, and with them market, prices, an event which wnnl. involve the trader in nn immense loss. The tragedy of house shortage is. therefore, one that in- titules the furniture trade as well as the would-bo householder.

A hundred jand ten years ago yesterday he was born to a name already distinguished, and the name is carried with distinction j >t ill.

I Tlie familiar signatures disappear, giving place to new. The other day "Jolm JJradlmry became a matter of 1 istorical interest, and now another well- known to soldiers is to go. Most soldiers nre familiar with the bold signature R. I'rade which embellished all A.C. l's, lint, probably at the end of next mouthy sir Reginald Brade will he succeeded as I Permanent Secretary of the ViaJt Office hy Sir Herhert Greedy, so the signature R.

For six months his sleeping plqfe was a hed in the corner of his office: and he went out <If doors only occasionally for such fresh air and exercise as a short stroll along (lie Embankment afforded. There is per- haps no parallel to the career of Sir Her- bert, Greedy in the records of secretary- ships. for he has understudied at the War Office Colonel Seel v. Mr. Asquith. Lord Kitchener, Mr. Lloyd George, the Earl of Derby, T/ord Milner, and Mr. Churchill. 4 My Old Shako." the shako, it is understood, has been recommended as the new head-dress for s.mip of our infantry regiments of the line. Nearly all our line wear on full dress occasions the helmet similar to that worn by a large section of the police force of the country except that the regimental badge, chain, and spik<" (rifle regiments excepted) are of silver plate. The Rifle regiments, other than j the Cameronians (Scottish Rifles), wear! the black Persian lambskin busby, and a distinction is drawn between the regi- ments by the colour of the plume worn. The King's Royal Rifles, for instance, wear scarlet ostrich feathers with black vul- ture feathers below, the Royal Irish Rifles wear hlack ostrich feathers with dark gr,-Pn vulture feathers, and the Riflp Bri- gade black ostrich ond vulture fentherr. All the Fusilier regiments with the ex-1 ception of the Royal Scots Fusiliers weari a short bearskin or black racodh-skin j caps. Two regiments wear the shako to- day. They are the Highland Light In- fantry and the Cameronians (Scottish Rifles). j Co!. Lawrence. ine most romantic figure of the war- and one of the least heard-of—is Colonel T. E. Lawrence.

Colonel Lawrence dropped his archaeological studies in Arabia at tll\> call of war as promptly as he dropped his war work when it was completed and re- turned to the obscurity of Oxford. Onh the outlines of his amazing work have lieen made known, hut I understand he has described it all in a long despatch to the War Office.

[INQUEST SENSATION1 Verdict in Phoenix Park Enquiry. Cause of Officer's Death A Dublin jury on Monday returned a verdict that Lieutenant Boast, officer in charge of the Viceregal guard, shot in the Phomix Park raid in the small hours of Sunday. died as the result of hemorr- hage caused by a shot fired by one of his comrades while on patrol duty." The evidence of soldiers who went out with Lieutenant Boast was that the officer was shot by a civilian with a ban- daged head, identified by the police as Laurence Kennedy, of Lucan, County Dublin. MILITARY BULLET. A corporal said fragments of bullet cas- ing in the wounds were from a service military cartridge. The verdict on Laurence Kennedy was that he was killed on his way home through Phoenix Park by the military patrol. They added this rider: We oon- sider that the military acted in a most heartless manner." Corporal Ro-lleston, who, with two pri- vates, formed the Viceregal guard under Lieut. Boast, said that on hearing: shots coming from the Rose Garden they went out, met a civilian with a bandaged head, and challenged him. He did not reply, and the two sentries tried to grapple with him. He kept ad- vancing, and witness fired. When he was crawling away witness fired another shot at him. Before he (Rolleston) first fired the man got a jab from the bayonet of one of the sentries. There were eight, civilians there, and they were firing, but they disappeared t l i<?v ii-pr(, fi r i ti,?, when the guard replied. Pte. IToddle, of the South Lanes, de- posed that when they tried to halt the civilian the latter drew au automatic revolver and shot Lieut. Boast in the chest "THEY HAVE GOT ME." I The corporal, Private Barnwell, and the civilian all fired about the same time. He heard Lieut. Boast say: They have got me." To a juror the witness replied that he had hold of the left shoulder of the civi- lian and the other private had his bayonet against his right side. The Coroner: Yet in face of that he fired at the oíiicer Yes, Pte. Barnwell stated that the civilian tried t.o catch Lieut. Boast by the throat. Witness and the corporal then fired at him. At the same time lie heard other i shots. Lieut. Boast fell, and said to wit- ness, Killed, kid," The civilian, added Barnwell, tried to get the revolver out. of the officer's pocket, and witness told him to take his hind i away or he would stick him." The re- lief party was then coming up the road, and witness, noticing the civilian moved, told the eorpoitil to put another shot into him. One of the soldiers who went to the relief of the guard, said that he saw a man lying on the grass face downward. When witness was about to turn him over the man tired two shots at him. Wit- ness then shot him in the neck. Corporal Rolleston, recalled, said the fragments of bullet fround in the deceased officer were of a service pattern.
A SWANSEA WOMAN. Evidence in Cardiff Alleged Bigamy Case. Blodwen Thom, a good-looking and well-dressed young woman of 23, was charged at Cardiff yesterday (before Mr. Daniel Radcliffe and Alderman H. M. Thompson) with higamously marrying Viggo Altierf, Kastrup Madsen.- Defend- ant; wept during the hearing of the evidence. Mr. Gordon Williams appeared for the defendant. Mr. Madsen said he was the steward of a boat now lying in dry dock at the Bute Docks. He had known defendant for about two ycarFi as Annie James. He met her in the street, and kept company witih her for somo time. He had always known her as a single woman. Continuing, witness said he went through a form of marriage with the de- fendant on November 17th last. He now identified her as the person referred to on the certificate as Annie Thomas, spinster. LIFF- IN SWANSEA. I Mr. Williams: Mrs. Thomas was living at Swansea when you first met her? Witness: Yes. 11. ou were on a boat trading between France and Swansea ?—Yes, and Barry and Pcnarth. She was living in Swansea?—Yes. Yon visited her there when your boat weut to Swansea?—Yes, I visited her at her house in Neath-road. Taiidore. You knew at that time that she wasr not living a good .moral lifeYes. It was at your suggestion she agreed to marry you?—Yes. And you askccl lipr as a condition to marrying her that she should give up the life she was living?—Yes. She agreed to that?—Yes. [ She came to Cardiff, and telegraphed to von that she had done so? Yes. HONEST ATTEMPT TO REFORM. -1 On November lith you married her. and yo"* have since lived with her in fur- nislie(i rooiiis?-Yes. Since making her nromise to you she has lived a respectable lifer—Yes. I Mr. Williams applied for bail, saying if she had known that Thomas was giving information as to the original Anrriage defendant would have given herself up. as she knew she had done wrong in getting married a second time. The case would have to go to the assizes, as neither the court nor clvarter sessions had any jurisdiction in the matter. Defendant had no friends, but she had made an honest endeavour to reform and live a respectable life Defendant was remanded for a week, and was allowed hail in the sum of S5.

MELODY AT THE MUMBLES. The time-honoured custom of serenad- ing the various (after closing time) was fully observed in the district. particularly at the Mumbles, this Yule- tide, and many fine overflow musical meetings were held. After sampling the performances of a number of the choirs. we give it as our considered opinion that the Male Voice Party we heard at l(i o'clock on Christmas night was far and away the best both for volume and ver- satility. As an adjudicator would say, their attack was most spirited," thcjr release tof some of the notes which could be safely reached) might perhaps have been a trifle more expeditious,'and their articulation-well, never mind about that! But the "double forto passages' Aim! That's where we have you! We had no idea there was <?o much beauty in Larboard Watch" until we lifttrd it rcmiod by bhis really ex- cellent glee party. True, some of the ingredients of the I choir were somewhat bazy upon a passage here and there, but with the support (musical and physical).of the more expert members, the crew, with Tom (whose whereabouts were anxiously enquired after) at the helm, brought the poor sailor safely in over the foam." When we left they had just commenced upon the forty- iiiiine (aboi,.t li, If- niutli item on the programme (about half- way through—no interval!). We departed pursued by the strains of Farewell, my own trow lur." We have now come to the conclusion that the refreshment that can produce such musical exuberance as this is 'ot st uIT OJ It will be noticed that we have pur- posely refrained from giving the name of this party, to save them being pestered bv offers of engagements!
asm!ll ?l ol AMUSEMENTS. I Reund the Swansea Picture Halls and Theatres. I EMPIRE. I The Elgar Hudson qumtevte, wIth tticir refined musical entertainment, are always assured a right royal welcome at Swan- sea. and this week at the Empire they cnce again command that success which is the reward of all good artistes. Miss I Elgar Hudson, herself a prime favourite 1 in Wales, has gathered around an array of talent which must be conceded to he great., and the quintette give a number of varied and classical selections, which find warm approval from a music-loving com- munity. Swansea audiences are said to err rather on the sicle of hypercriticism in the case of musical terms, and. there- fore, the fact that the quintette had to appear before the curtain. abundantly testifies to the high standard of their per- formance. Les Trombetta are a clever duo, the lady possessing a charming con- tralto voice, and the^gentleman the true I comedy instinct. There is just sufficient vivacity shown, the comedy element is not overdone, and that there is historic ability there can be no doubt. Spitari is a good ventriloquist, and one would prefer to see him not appear first on the bill of fare. A really good turn this, and one well*worth hearing. Charles Cohan. the popular Hebrew entertainer, earns fresh laurels, and his number telling of how he is "saving up for Hachel" is one that will catch on. Murphy and Mack, in a clever scena. The Major's Refection Maggie Benson, the original maid at the piano, and Harry Barclay, a good light comedian, complete the programme. I GRAND THEATRE. Oh Jcv! entered upon its second week's stay at the Grand Theatre on Monday, and a good house witnessed the clever musical comedy. The tangles be- tween somebody else's husband with [ somebody or other's wife are just quantum libet," with no suggestion of over-piquancy. The ladies (Miss Rclnor Bevan, Miss Nancv Beynon, Miss Vere Gerald, Miss Gwen )1. Ilobin- son and Miss Carlotta Anson) are very chic, and Mr. Miles Kavanagh, Mr. Walter Thomas, Mr. Charles Marshman, ¡,Mr. Fred Powell, Mr. John A. Howitt, and Mr. H. Reading are worthy of every praise. The musical items are ex- I cellent, and those who have not seen the show should not miss it. I THE ELYSIUM. Perhaps one of the most remarkable pictures of the year is "The Still Alarm which is being screened for the whole of this .week at the Elysium. Criticj have everywhere proclaimed this film as a magnificent production The main story deals as one would suppose from the title with a, number of fire scenes. Aineri-an fire-fighting appliances are seen at their 1)wi. The photography of the fire engines hurtling through the darkened streets' is excellence itself, and some of the thrilling incidentt, of rep-cue in blazing buildings are truly remarkable, and hold the audi- ence spellbound. Other good pictures on the programme are the drama Fields of Honour and Elmo the Mighty with a number of good' comedies. On Thursday Iioudhvi will be resumed. f THEATRE ROYAL. I For variety of scene and clever plot I construction the leading film at the tloyal i this week deserves every praise, and Mi.us Paynter has displayed great judgment in having secured a picture so much to the taste of her patrons. It is entitled Panthea," being of course an adapta- tion of the play by Mouchton Roffe. The story opens in Moscow, the wonder-city of Russia, and the events here form a sort of prologue to the theme on which the fine fctory evolves. The chief parts are acted in Pans, "City of the Night." Norma Talmadge plays exceptionally well in the picture, end we think it quite the best thing she has appeared in for a Ion, time. The rest of the programme is also very interesting, particularly Babs, the Fixer." "The Lightning Raider" serial is as gripping as ever, whilst the Betrayal of Maggie is a comedy pic- ture of unique situations. I THE CASTLE. Amidst seenes of mining lite California in the early 'sixties a wonderful love romance is evolved in the film "Hell Morgan's Daughter." which is being shown in the above cinema during the j first three days this week, with Dorothy l Phillips as the outstanding feature. ?t is » rea ) ?9? ?? 4B<)]? ?§a??J ably pretty production is "Two-bit Seats," a sterling little comedy, in which the successful comedian Taylor Holme.s, who is a prime favourite with the patrons at this popular hall, is very prominent in a part which he absolutely makes his own. Constance Talmadge and Billy Parsons are also to be seen in a bright little comedy, besides other very interesting photoplays. Thurs- day's programme will include the film that made tlw Prince of Wale* laugh so much when he saw it flvii-in his visit to America — The Escape of the Yellow Dog." | CARLTON. I t Let who may complain of quiet bus- iness after Christmas, this cannot lie made to apply to the Carlton Cinema, the in- flux to which was on Monday somewhat embarrassing. Soon not only was every i seat full, but a great number of people were quite content witit "Etttnding room only." The pictures shown were the very highest class of film production. The star picture is False Faces," with Hy. B. Walthall as chief actor: a epy story, introduced by extraordinarily vivie] scenes of midnight on the battle front; and also striking sea pictures. Two Gun Beltv" features Bessie Bariscale. Never Too Old is a very funny Mark Scnnett comedy. Then there is a con- tinuation of that excellent series. The I Marvels of the Universe," with life pic- tures of less known and smaller wild ani- mals. Pat he's Gazette is included in the programme. PICTURE HOUSE. I .fudging by the crowded hotises on Mon- dav the popularity of that cosy little High-street Hall, the Picture House, is ever on the increase. The programme pre-,eiit,,d wiv one of the best obtainable as the programme'; at this house always are. Heading it is the drama in as hun- dred Paid in full," Varring Pauline Frederick The story is intensely drama- tic, and the plot givee full scope to the power of Pauline Frederick. "Paid in Full is well supported by" The Check- mat.oé." a fine reel moral play featuring Miss Jackie Sounder. Never too Old is a Musk Sennott comedy with a laugh form end to end. Granger's marvek of the Universe and Prtthe's Gnwtte ter- minate the programme. Thursday will see the screening of "Boots" in a Dorctky Gisli comedy. J Y.M.C.A. CINEMA. 1 .? _I The Shepherd and the boutuern I Cro," a four rel drama of fereat merit, takes the lead at the Y.M.C.A. Publn Cinema for the first part of this week, j and it is ably backed up by Their Anni- versary Feast." Both these productions are sound., an(I of real interest. "Tiny Tim and his Elephant is a clever comedy with a well-known picturelnnd juvenile in the title role. Spooks is another comedy, and the programme also include,, A Record Run and North China," a travel subject. A most appropriate pic tu' re' will come to the hall on Thursday in the shape of Dickens' Christmas Carol," a splendid film version of the famous novelist's work. The Greatest Wish of the World will also be on the programme. It is a love dv vm-i with an original line.
STILL TOO ILL TO APPEAR. I At Swansea on Tuesday Mr. Rupert Lewin stated that. Summer Da vies, the cashier who is charged with attempting to commit &uicide b v cutting his throat with a Mzor at the rear of No. :I.S, New- street, Swansea, on Nov 17th, 1919. was 3 ill too unwell to be able to appear. The case was further adjourned for a fortnight. I

Tile Weish poems are disappointing, their .'nithors having failed entirely to interpret the sentiments of the child mind in its simplicity and naturalness. Most of tiieir efforts have developed into poems of a semi-religious kind, while others are faulty in rhyme and metre.
