VBRDXCT OF NINE Hiu.Nr)REt).Under this title I, Messrs R. J. Reatit and Sons, Qu«en-street, Cardiff, pianoforte makers, organ builders, and music ware- housemen, navy collected an imposing array of testi- monials anu Press opinions relating to the quality of the musical instruments supplied by them. The great majority of the letters in thi-i list relate to pianos, and while many of them have reference to most costly instruments, containing all the latest improvements supplied to the well-to-do, the greater number relate to serviceable instruments purchased for the homes of the wage-earning portion of the community. This growing love for so refining an art as music is a most favourable sign, r or though in the Principality music has for generations been the chief recreation of the people, it has for the most part been choral music that has occupied attention. Instrumental music is now, however, receiving its fair share of attention, and all those in true sympathy with the art must trust that the movement will go steadily onward. These testimonials have been received from every quarter of the Princi- pality, while not a few come from other portions of the United Kingdom, and some iron South America, India, and other distant countries. All speak most favourably of Messrs Heath's business methods as well as of their instruments. 2e K. J. HEATH AND SONS INVITE INSPECTION.

I X60 FOR A "DUCKING:" I The Lord Chief Justice and a special jury had before them yesterday the case of Ford v. Smith, which was au action brought by a farmer at Romford, Essex, against a neighbour, claiming damages for assault. The plaintiff, who occu- pied land adjoining that of the defendant, a publi- can, had ordered a man to lop a treo in one of his fields. Some of the branches fell on the defend- ant's land, and plaintiff alleged that whilst get- ting over the fence defendant seized him and ducked him in a pond, The defence set up was that the plaintiff vaulted over the fence, and whilst strtiggling plaintiff fell into the pond. The I jury gave plaintiff £ 60 damages.
In Search of the New Woman. [BT PKTER QUINCE.] WHKUB IS SHE? Will someone kindly tell nie where I can find the" New Woman?" I have read about her till my eyes ache and my brain reels. Every newspaper I take up discusses her character or her habits. Every review strives for her, or against her, with boundless enthusiasm and pertinacity. There is never a novel but dissects her, and analyses her, showing us her soul and all the details of her intricate emotional apparatus. Men and women talk about her, as though they knew her for an intimate acquaintance, as though they had received her confidences yesterday evening and would exchange confessions with her to-morrow. I sometimes find that oven I myself am discussing her just as though I bad known her from childhood. And yet for it all, let the confession ba as galling as it may, not- withstanding all, I say, I car,.b End the New Woman anywhere I can't meet with her, I can't catch the least glimpse of her. I search con- stantly, but in vain. This sort of thing is un- deniably extremely unpleasant. If the New Woman is around me everywhere, every day, under every form, why can't I find her ? Ain I in ad ? I ask, or has the world itself become one mighty crank,' with its head full of a being that has no existence ? There must be such a person, I tell myself, for everyone else seems to have seen her, and is suitably enamoured or afraid of her. There cannot be, for I seek with open and ears, with wits alive and keen, and yet I sok evsr in vain. And in despair I say, It's all a delusion. There is no New Woman." WHAT SHE IS Ll". The person I want cannot, per- haps, be described with purtect | precision. Her characteristics j can hardly be catalogued in a manner to satisfy tho requirements of a police register. But still, I may possibly give an ap- proximation. The paragraph would run some- thing like this :— WANTED.—A young Woman, namel'unknown, who is supposed to have recently left the domestic circle with the intention of seeking romantic adventures. She may (and in all probability will) be dressed anyhow. Her eyes are piercing and intense, and have a weird, far-away look, Her hair is full of phantasy and passion; also her boots. Her eyelids tremble strangely at the slightest provocation, and her lips are capable of expressing with an extraordinary facility the whole gamut of her unbridled emotions. She has made a special study of the love- passion and has unconventional ideas about other women's husbands. She may (by this time) be married, but if so she scorns her husband as a more negligeabie item in her experience. H"r troubles (and many are they) she tells to the first man who is (as sho supposes) in harmony with her soul-aspirations. She thinks the world is only a stage whereon she may diince the pas seul of her femininity. She prefers hearthrug to armchairs, cigars to chocolates. She swears as a sign of her progress, and drinks brandy because most women don't. She may cycle since the dress is "new." She dances a la ballet, and sings a Ù1, music-hall. She reads a little, but is always writing books about herself, about women's emotions, passions, pains. She is all sex-a woman the more clearly because, as she thinks, struggling to show off her womanli- ness. That, will do for the present. These are only a few of the characteristics of the New Woman, as gathered from the latest sources. I might go on for paragraph after paragraph and tho half would not be told. I And now tho question Has anyone seen such a lady III Curdiif ? For, if .so, I beg and beseech thai person to bestow upon mo the privilege of an introduction. My mtentions are more than honourable; they ars scientific. I desire to examine these new mental and moral develop- ments. I would bask in her smiles-supposing i-he has any. I would sit (metaphorically) at her feet. I would pluck out the heart of her mystery. AN EXPERIMENT. So far, as I said, I :bave been singularly unsuccessful in my search. I have examined the ground most diligently. There isn't a suburb of the town which has not come under my observation, not a circle of society which has not been scrutinised by my social microscope. But whether the New Woman is too small or too large, too rare or too common, the result is always the same. I seok, but do not find. The other day, in Martha Jane-street, I saw what seemed to answer partly to the descriptions I have noted. There was a woman, young, un- conventional, not under the ordinary restraints of society. Her hair positively bristled with emotional electricity. She was expressing the most modern views as to the mental capacity and moral worth of a man who seemed to be her husband. She appeared willing to confide her troubles to [comparative stranger. That she swore, I am certain. That she drank, I doubt not. Evidently," said I, "hore is an apostle of the new sect struggling for freedom." I politely put her the question,— My dear madam, may I ask you if you are a New Woman ?" i She looked at me for a moment in amazement, and then burst into a coarse laugh. Jiro, Bill," she said to the poor husband I had been pitying, 'ere, Bill, jes' show the gen'man the way to Bridgend." However, I did not trouble Bill. Evidently she was not a New Woman. I was unsuccessful again. Of course the upper strata of society, I reflected, feel these new influences first. I must try further up. MISS ABERDARE HALL SAYS "NO." I have tried further up, bnt the result is quite as hopeless. First I began with the ladies who live in the austere, the serene atmosphere of learning. 41 Miss Aberdare Hall," said I, after the preliminaries were over, may I inquire whether you are, or contemplate being, a New Woman ?" 41 A New Womam ?" She laughed, and I am bound to say she laughed very pleasantly, indeed. Not 1. Of course the world thinks that we clever girls," we "blue stockings," must necessarily be different from other girls, but I assure you that if there is one thing we hate above all else it is a irl who isn't girlish, who thinks Greek will do instead of chiffon, or that logarithms need banish ribbons and laces. No, the college girl hates to be blue." She just wants to be the better woman all round because she knows more. But she loathes the I want of balance and proportion in these modern "tempestuous petticoats." The New Woman ? No. sir, she is not to be found here. From the abode of this learned but vivacious lady I turned to a house where I thought the average young lady might be found. Miss Newport Road," said I in pleasing tones, are you a New Wonomn ?" A New Woman ?" she said what is that?" I was somewhat at a loss, but I enumerated some of the qualities necessary for a title to New Womanhood. Swear,' she said in amazement, 44 4 drink brandy,' smoke cigars.' Sir do you wish to insult me ?" I hastened to point out that I was merely en. gaged in a scientific research. But she was evi- donty annoyed, and I saw that I was again on the wrong track. Her eyes were not intense enough, her fringe was too trim, her costume had no note of defiance. She did not talk about woman's sphere." She had not written a novel. She had not been ab'.a to cet through the" Heavenly Twins." Sho had never heard of "Keynotes." Oh, no She was no grood. She was simply a charming young Old-Woman. And I wanted to find the New one. A REA t. PUBLICI I WANT. All oirciea are the same. I have questioned belles and market-women, matrons and little school misses, dairy- maids, barmaids, waitresses, actresses, shop girls, nurses, teachers, deaconesses, ministers' wives, sisters, cousins, aunts. And never once has my question been answered affirmatively. The formula is almost invariable :— "Madam, may I inquire if you are a New Woman ?" What is that, pray ? I run over the list, and then comes the blow :— Sir And into that little word what worlds of mean- ing can be put Well, Cardiff then has another blot on her scutcheon. She has long bewailed her mud and her morals. She has often groaned over her councillors and her squabbles over a thousand petty wants, which, if un- satisfied, will pass away forgotten. But now here is a seal, a tangible defioieney. The New Woman, the lady whose qualities form the most absorbing topic of the day, cannot be found here. The sex which everywhere else is progressing is here all a standstill. It is shameful but true. Need I point out how important the matter is ? Need I call upon our new councillors to consider the New Woman question as soon as possible ? Need I ask the museum committer at least to get a plaster cast for their instructive, but inacces- sible, curio-whop ? Will not the binb be sufficient to produce fram Mr Fletcher the announcement The New Woman is Coming 1" In this matter (as in many others) I, like n. I)d citizen, hope that something will be done." To hear of the New Woman and never to see her to read daily vivid descriptions of an apparently mythical female to be ever pursuing in thought all elusive, phantasmal will-o'-the-wisp embodi. ment of the new feminine—all this is too much for any self-respecting town or citizen. If there is a New Woman, then let us see her and be done with her, and if not, let us resign ourselves to the disappointment and leave this poor phantom of what never existed to pass away at once and for over from our minds.
Bogus Clubs. Another Prosecution at Cardiff. This afternoon at the Cardiff Police-court there came on for hearing the adjourned summonses against Elizabeth Coles, Wm. Harris, and Henry Baker for selling beer and spirits at 34-3, Cowbridge-road, without a licence. Mr Belcher. who defended, said after the raid his clients had on his advice closed the premises, and had now no intention of re-opening them. His clients had to some extent been misled by a former secretary, and they now pleaded guilty. Mr F. C. Lloyd, the deputy town clerk, who prosecuted, said ho would withdraw tho summons against Harris, who was only a servant but with regard to the others he was obliged to say that since October, 1893, the place had, under the cloak of the Com- panies Act, been carried on as a public-house. Not only had beer been sold without a licence but the place bad been open at all hours, and there had been continual scenes of drunkenness and disorder. In spite of the mixed account which the defendants grave, the view of the pro- secution was that Baker was the proprietor of the premises, and was the real culprit. Mr Sti- pendiary Lewis said he considered the advice which Mr Belcher had given his chents was sound aud sensible. Coles was fined B5 and costs, and Baker was mulcted in L25 and costs.
A FILTHY BLACKGUARD, A Father's Responsibilities. For the third time James McArthur, a little, fellow ten years of age, has engaged the attention of Mr Plowden at the Marylebone Police-court. Some two weeks ago the father of the boy, a powerfully-built man, appealed to the magis- trate to know what to do with his uncontrollable s-jn, who, he said, had tried to cut his throat, had stolen 5d, and used such filthy and disgusting language as to call forth from a police-inspector the remark that he 44 had never before heard such a filthy blackguard." Mr Plowden advised the applicant to charge the boy, and that was ac. cordingly done. The father then added that his son had severely injured the hand of a lady who wanted to befriend him. The boy was then re- manded to the workhouse for a week, and at the second hearing, after having heard a statement from one of the school board officers, who accused the father of the boy of being a thorough black- guard and doing his best to get rid of this, his second child-the first having already been sent to a school—Mr Plowden ordered the father to take the boy away and take care of him properly, or look out for the consequences.—The boy was charged yesterday by the police for not being under proper guardianship. Policeman CaM found him on the staircase of Bowman's-buildings, Edgware-road, about two o'clock on Sunday morning fast asleep. The school board officer before mentioned, having reiterated his statements as to the father's character, the father himself was called into the witness-box, and told by the magis- trate that if he thoughb he was going to get rid of his boy and relieve himself of all responsibility by neglecting him he would be very much mistaken. He (the magistrate) would send the boy to the workhouse, and the guardians would take steps to charge him (the father) with neglecting to maintain his child, and if that charge were proved he would be sent to prison for a long time.

ASSAULTING A CONSTABLE Exemplary Sentences at Cardiff. This morning at the Cardiff Police-court folat youths named William Gwynn (21), David Gwynn (19), Patrick Collins, and Edward RiptuI: (20) were charged on rema.nd with assaulting and wounding P.O. Sidney Herniman by kicking flifo on the fact) and head in Wood-street on the 29b ult. Messrs G. David and LIQyd Meyricfc de- fended the prisoners. Constable Herniman, wbc has not been on duty since the assault, said 011 the night in question he was on duty in Wood* street. One of the prisoners jostled against hic3i and then the four men made a set for him. All the prisoners kicked him, and he received seveco blows about the face and head. The Constable pulled himself together and knocked Ripton down withhisstatf, but; another set was made on him, 31Jd he was left insensible on the ground. Before lost consciousness the men dragged him across the bridge, and one of them shouted, 44 Chuck the in the river." Corroborative evideacs having been given by two constables, Dr. Rochc said he examined the constable. He described the numerous wounds from which he suffered- On the fallowing morning he found the constable suffering from severe shock. Three witnesse, were called for the defence, but in two instances thoy admitted having been oonvicbed for robber with violence and other offences. Ripton a11 Collins had clear records, but both Gwynns h» been previously convicted of assaulting the David and William Gwynn were each sent to gaol for four months and Collins for tbref months, whilsb Ripton was fined £6. with t alternative of six weeks' imprisonment.

The Man About Town. Cardiff has spread itself over Canton and Cathays a local Poet has sung of a Greater Cardiff every good citizen is anxious to see developed a fitting and creditable capital of Wales but what am I to say of a Cardiff beyond the seas 7 Yet this is what is to happen if my infor- mation be correct. Cardiff has already overflown to Penarth, to Barry, to Dinas Powis, to Porthcawl, to Llanishen-we can spare a few for Western Australia, where it is proposed to form a colony, to be named Cardiff," and to consist chiefly of people who have gone out from South Wales, and others who will follow. A local organisation will be formed in a few days for the purpose of securing lands, which will be placed in trust, and to erect cottages and a school- house. The proposed constitution of the Colony I am not provided with at present, but if it is to be a Co-operative or Socialistic Colony, I have not much faith in its ultimate success. As a rule these adventures are too ideal, and mankind is too imperfect, too selfish and individualistic for themto succeed-at all events, in the pre- sent age. Should this proposed colony from Cardiff be founded, I wish it better success than that attained by the social philosopher, Robert Owen, a product of Wales, but who gained all his experience and his learning beyond the Border. Robert Owen was the founder of social ideas among the English people, and he made the first practical experiment to realise the Socialistic ideal. He is rightly regarded as the founder of Socialism in England. It was at New Lanark that he endeavoured, in the beginning of the present century, to realise in active life the social ideals which had been dreamed by mankind for centuries—by Plato, Sir Thomas More, Bacon, and Cam- panella, down to our modern Bellamy. But Owen'r, experiments, though they attracted the attention of philanthropists and the crowned heads of Europe, failed. Not satisfied with his experiences in Scotland, he sailed to Indiana, U.S.A., and again attempted to form a colony at New Harmony, which collapsed and left him a poor man. These facts were called to my mind on hearing of the attempt which is to be made to form a Cardiff beyond the seas. The founders have valuable experience for their guidance in the mistakes of others. Success to the Newer Cardiff I Here are some interesting reminiscences of an old Cardiffian, J.P. who writes The late Archdruid Clwydfardd was one of those who attended the celebrated Eisteddfod initiated by the late Marquis of Bute in Cardiff Castle, in August, 1834. Of the survivors of that long ago period who were guests of his lordship, I know of none living now but four, who have all attained pre-eminence in their lives in literary and patriotic efforts :-Larly Llanover, Lady Charlotte Schreiber (then Lady Charlotte Guest), Lord Aberdare, and Mr G. T. Clark. The resulting profits of that Eistedd. fod (EMO) formed the nucleus of the fund to start and sustain the present splendid Cardiff Infirmary. The noble marquis suggested the purpose to which the money might be devoted, backing his suggestion by a donation of £1.000 and providing a piece of land on which to erect the necessary building. Clwydfardd, in 1883, when attending the National Eisteddfod at Cardiff, was proud to refer to the fact that he had travelled all the way from North Wales (a formidable task in those days) to be present at the Marquis of Bute's Eis- teddfod. An interesting memento of the event also exists in the Angel Hotel, Cardiff, in the shape of the large chair which was made by the late Mr Bassett Jones (celebrated as a first-class Welsh triple-harp maker). The chair was also used in the pavilion built to hold the 1879 Eisteddfod, held in Cathays Park, when it was occupied by Mr J. N. Stradling Came (St. Donat's Castle), Sir En J, Reed, M.P., and Dean Vaughan, The Cardiff Orchestral Society give their first Concert of the present and fourteenth season to-morrow night in the Park Hall. I have been favoured with an early pro- gramme of the concert, which promises to be an advance upon the best performances of last season. The. Society enter upon their season's work with increased patronage, for up to the present time there has been a greater number of bookings than in any previous year. With Miss Ella Russell and Mr Herbert Grover as vocalists and Mr George Risely as organist, great things are looked for. It is Miss Russell's first visit to Cardiff since she attained her present high position in the musical world. She will have full opportunity to give the audience an example of her powers, for she is down in the programme to sing the Scena and Prayer from Weber's 44 Der Freizchutz," with orchestra Elizabeth's Greeting from Wagner's Tannhaiiser," with orchestra and the song" Angel Faces." Mr Herbert Grover is to sing two new songs and the Prayer from Wagner's Rienzi," with orchestra. Mr George Risely will play an organ solo and Prout's Organ Concerto in E Minor, with orchestra. The Orchestra is down for the giant's share of the programme, and will 10 play Sullivan's Imperial March overture, Le Pre aux Clercs," Herold; overture, "Euryanthe," IVeber gavotte and minuet, Williams Russian Dance, Oanne and Parry's Allegrezza in memoriam of Joseph Haydn Parry. The usual programme and book of words with biographical and descrip- tive notes has been prepared by Mr W. A. Morgan, the secretary, and there is every promise of a charming musical evening. I The second concert is far off yet, though readers interested in music will not object to be told that the vocalists secured are Miss Clara Butt and Mr Plunket Greene, with Miss Rebecca Mander as solo pianist. The orchestral portion of the concert will include Dr. Mackenzie's new overture Britannia," and German's new Gipsy Suite," the latter of which has not yet been played in public. The second concert is announced for January next. Dr. Garrett Horder, whose solicitude for the waifs and strays of Cardiff led to good work being done last winter, writes :— 41 The necessitous poor children of the town were much indebted to you last winter for the able way with which you advocated their claims. Although we were not successful in convincing the School Board of the immediate necessity that existed for the erection of a special school for the children, who are practically without friends. Yet I think we may fairly say that it has been owing to the persistent manner with which you urged the Board to adopt special measures that they have decided to appoint an officer to deal exclusively with the children found roaming about our streets. That is undoubtedly a step in the right direction. Having got hold of these 4 waifs and 'strays' one naturally wonders what the Board will do with them. As far as my own observations extend these children happen to be most numerous^in these districts where the schools of the board are most crowded. The Board have already decided that the new Roath Park School will not be large enough for the children in that neighbour- hood. The schools in Crwys-road, Albany- road, Stacey-road, and Portmanmoor-voad are, I am given to understand, over- crowded. On the Canton side the Severn- road School has at the present moment con- siderably more children than it should have, and certainly more than is desirable in the interests of their health. Radnor-road School has been considerably enlarged, and has no vacant places. Under these circum- stances one may fairly ask where the street children are to be placed 3" This is by way of recapitulation, and deals with the past. There is plenty of work to do in the present and the future, and so it is to be resumed at once. For cc our little society will commence its operations to- morrow, and we shall soon be in a position to find out approximately the number of street urchins who are not going to any school. For those of your readers who are not acquainted with our mode of working I may be allowed to add that the police have again undertaken to assist us—1st, in making enquiries as to what really necessitous cases exist 2nd, in obtaining the co-operation of pawnbrokers and second-hand dealers in preventing the improper disposal of cloth- ing, etc. and 3rd, in making observations with the view of making certain that the clothing is actually worn by the children." T Jf- A Gaiety Girl set out for another successful week at the Theatre Royal last night. Judging by its reception, this visit will be more popular than the last. It goes as smartly and as pleasantly as ever, though I noticed several impor- tant changes in the caste. Some of these are a decided improvement, and there is not one to be regretted. The stag- ing has been slightly improved, the dresses are bright, music light and pretty and well performed, good singing, and acting of a first-class order, all go to make up as pleasant an evening's diversion as could be desired. A Gaiety Girl is a happy combination of opera, comedy, and bur- lesque. Mr Sounes is determined by providing excellent companies for his patrons to win for the Grand Theatre its proper place in the amusements of the town. Burlesque has made way for the old-time popular drama of "The Ticket of-Leave Man," which seems to be favoured with many admirers still. It is a good specimen of the old style of drama, and it is well performed at the Grand by a good company. It serves well to keep green the memory of Tom Taylor, and it is in every respect a good play.

I Murder Confessed. 1 During a. night brawl lately, in one of the most unsavoury thoroughfares of populous Bolleville, a. young workman, aged 17, was stabbed by one of the rioters and died on the spot. A thorough search was instituted by the police to discover the murderer, but unsuccessfully. Early yesterday morning, however, a workman, 20 years of age, entered the Belleville Police-station and said to the official "Arrest me! Last night I quar- relled with someone whora I bad never seen in the street, and, Ifearing that he was going to attack me, I drew my knife and stabbed him. I am sorry for what I have done." The murderer's request was granted, and, in spite of his expres- "ion of remorse for his crime, he has, of course, been kept under lock and key. —
MONKEYS' PARADE. Ramarkable Proceedings. I A Monkeys' Parade" has for some time been an established institution on Sunday nights in Bow-road. People in the neighbour- hood who do not possess simian tastes and refuse to acknowledge ancestral apes as part of their primeval pedigree do not like it but the young" monkeys of both sexes from whom the parade takes its name have hitherto been stbie to hold their own, in spite of all the civilis- ing- resonrces brought to bear on them. They sing- comic songs, march five breast on the pavement, hustle reputable people, women as well as men, and imitate pandemonium-in fact, behave altogether in a manner calculated to raise a feeling of indignation in the breast of any self-respecting ourang-outang. The police at last determined to put down the "Parade" and punish the monkeys. A raid wa made on it on Sunday night, and the result was the appearance in the morning, at the Thames Poiiee-c of about: a score of young lads and girls who were accused of disorderly conduct, Their aspect in the dock justified the title given to that part of Bow-road wh:ch they frequented, the intelligence they exhibited being of that degree which might be expected from monkeys, or human roughs who insult wonwn going to church and assault men who resent their horseplay. Mr Dickinson, the magistrate, thought it was high time to abolish tho Parade as part of the East End Suuday. If anyone had come forward to charge them with assault he would have sent the accused to prison as it was, he bound them over in J35 to be of good behaviour for six months, with the alternative of seven days in gaol. It is a pity his worship cannot order them to pass a week in the monkeys' cage at the Zoological Gardens. They and their relations would soon become mutually repugnant.
PQRTH MUSICAL FESTIVAL. On Monday, November 5th, a congregational smgmg festival was held at Silem Baptist Chapel, Porth. Tho choirs were drawn fron: the following Baptist churches Salem, forth Ynishir, Tonyrefail, Hafod, and Rhondda, tho conductor being Mr R. Rhedynog Price, G.T.S.C., Carditf. The presidents of the meet- ings were Morning, Rev. J. Pritciiard, Tonv- refail afternoon, Rev. W. Reps, Rbondda; evening, Mr E. Samuel, B.A., Portb. Misd Deborah Rees, Rhondda, and Mr Gwilym Ley. shon, Forth, as At the evening meeting Mrs Cordelia Edwards Rees U.C.W., renaered a Welsh sacred song with excellent effect. The tunes were selected from "Llawlyfr Mojiant," with the addition of one from each of thejfolloniring Pztrry, Mr T. R Richards (Blaengarw), and Mr Rhys Evans (Forth); the secre-tary uf the festival being inir J. Towy Thomas (Forth). A very pointed and suitable address was delivered by Mr Evan Richards (Forth) at the afternoon meeting. The favourite tunes in the programme proved to be "Mno pobpeth yndda" (Dr. Parry); "Concwest (R. Evans); "Catherine'1 and (Jalfaria (T. B. Richards); f. Jt)l,.n and "Diadem." The morning meeting was devoted to the Sunday-school children, and their ing of the conductor's Awn yn Mlaen (" On we Go ") was excellent. At the afternoon and evening meetings another of Mr Rhedynog Price's compositions, the popular anthem 41 Nid i ni, O Argtwydd," was sung with thrilling effect (the opening movement being magnificent) by the powerful and well-trained voices of this musical district. Mr Price won golden opinions for his masterly management of so large a choir. There was evidently a perfect understanding between the conductor and his choir. The spacious chapel was crowded at each meeting. At the evening meeting a vote of condolence was passed with the family of Mr Idris Williams, Forth, who died suddenly on Sunday night. Crugybar was also sung and many times repeated to the hymn, 0 fryniau Caersalem "—the departed gentle- man's favourite hymn.
ACROSS THE ATLANTIC IN TWO DAYS. We are indebted to Mr Alfred Turner, of Cobden-buildings, Corporation-street, for the following cutting from Onward, of Toronto :— A Prescott, Out., man claims to have invented a plan by which vessels will be enabled to cross the Atlantic from Canada to England in two days, and asks the Government for the modest sum of$50,000 to assist him in demonstrating its practicability. The model he submits shows a huge metal cylinder 150 feet in diameter and 1,000 feet long. Within this, slung on an immense steel rod, hangs the ship broadside forward. The cylinder, against the face of which huge paddles are fastened, revolves on this rod, thus propelling the whole thing at the immense speed of 60 miles an hour. The cylinder is divided into water-tight compartments, and at each end of this rod is a protection for the look-out. It affords a pro- menade for passengers I, OeD feet Ion?. Great resistance to wind is offered by the revolving cylinder, but that is compensated for by there being no resistance to water. Steering is done from the sides. It would be like a huge revolving barrel with the ship hung inside, and not coming in contact with the water. Iu clear weather it would go like a greyhound. The inventor sub- mitted his idea to a nautical expert in England, who said it violated no principle of navigation,"
SAD ACCIDENT AT CARDIFF. Fatal Termination. A sad accident, which this morning terminated fatally, occurred on Monday afternoon to a lad named David Ellycott, of 23, Havelock-street, Cardiff. He was in the employ of the Cardiff Fish and Poultry Company, and was instructed by his employer at 2 p.m. to carry some pheasants to the Ice Company's stores in Penarth- road, Not returning, inquiries were made as to his whereabouts, but without success, and at eight o'clock, thinking that some mishap had befallen the lad, the manager of the Fish and Poultry Company drove down to the ice stores. With the assistance of the store-keeper, a thorough search was made, and the lad was ultimately found at the bottom of the lift well, which communicated with several floors of the storage sheds. The unfortunate lad had fallen a considerable distance, and when picked np both legs were found to have been fractured and that he had sustained severe bodily injuries. He was taken to the infirmary, but succumbed this morning.
A STRANGE TURN-OUT. I An effectual stop has been put to the lash eccentricity of the facetious ex-Communist Maxime Lisbonne, who had lately, it will be remembered, endeavoured to "prtint the town red by promenading the streets of Paris in a scarlet brougham, driven by a coachman in directoire coatume. This strange turn-out came to utter grief yesterday in the Rue des Martyrs. The "Incroyable" coachman was driving down that thoroughfare, which is on a steep incline, I when one of the horses took fright at the noise made by a street band, and bolted down the hill. The scarlet carriage, urging on its mad career, soon came into collision with a cab with the result that the driver was thrown violently on to the pavement, fortunately, however, without sustaining any more serious injuries than a few bruises. The horses continued wildly galloping, unimpeded, until they reached the Faubourg Montmartre, where both animals fell down and j were secured. The scarlet brougham was by this time smashed to pieces.
I A MAD VIOLINIST. I bunday night was not one of rest to the inhabi- tants cf No. 20, Rue do Chabirol. One of the tenants, a yoiing Roumanian, 17 years cf age, was suddenly taken with a strong desire to make the house re-echo with melodious strains ia the middle of tb4\ night, and woke everybody ur at twelve o'clock with the scraping of a fiddle. Threats and entreaties alike failed to stop him, and at nine o'closk yesterday morning he wab still playing. By this time the commissary of polica had been fetched, and the unfortunate young melomaniac, who was found to be insano, was, with some difficulty, conveyed to the police- station. All the way fi:om his house to the police-station, and from thence to ths lunatic asj'Iam, the mad violinist insisted upon making I day hideous with the strains he drew from his fiddle.
Splitting of Rhymney Stock. Shareholders to be Consulted. Mr W. Fairlamb, secretary of the RhynoneJ Railway Company, has issued a circular in th( following terms to the shareholders with refer- ence to the proposal to spht the Rhymney Stock A suggestion has been made to the directors that it would be of advantage to the holders of ordinary stock of the Rhymney Rail- way Company that this stock, which now stands at the market price of abottl 193, should be converted inbo two stocks of double the present nominal amount, one being Preferred Ordinary and the other Deferred Ordl. nary Stock. This course has been adopted in oma other companies, but opinions are not unani. mous as to its ad vantage, The Preferred Ordi- nary Stock becomes more valuable, but the De- ferred Stock, in like proportion, more speculative. If adopted, each £100 Ordinary Stock would be converted into 2100 Preferred Otdinary Stock, wifeh a fixed dividend of 4 per cent. pei annum, and £100 Deferred Ordinary Stock, which would take the residue of the dividend available for the year on the original £100 stock. Although the shareholders will thus re- ceive nominally £ 200 stock for each £100 the value of the jB200 would probably not much differ from the market price of the undivided 2100 original stock, and the aggregate dividend paid on the two stocks of £100 each would together be the same as the dividend payable on the original jBICO stock. As the question is eminently one for the decision of the ordinary stock holders, and Parliamentarysanction would bo necessary for its adoption, for which notice must be given during' the present month, you are requested to fill up and return the enclosed form not later than the 12bh inst,, expressing your opinion as to the suggested con- version, in order that the directors may be informed of the opinions of the individual share- holders as some guide to their action."
