I AFRICAN CHIEFS. I I A Memorial trom Meilliyr. I I [SPROTAlj TELEGRAM TO THK -YC-H-o-) I Lash nighb at a crowded harvest thanksgiving service held at the Markot-equare Church, Merthyr, the Rav. J. G. James (pastor) dwelt upon the mission of Kiiama and the two other African chiefs, and the whole congregation stood up to signify their assent to a memorial being forwarded to the Right Hon. Joseph Chamberlain, praying that the rights in Africa of those chiefs might be respected. The rev. gentleman explained that he did not wish to say anything against the Chartered Company, but he considered the just cause of the aggrieved chieftains worthy of aupport. Miss Claudia Borney gave a beautiful rendering of Gounod's For ever with the Lord." Mr Sandford Jones also assisted in the musical part of the service. The lessons were read by Mr C. H. JameR, J.P., and it may be added that the pastor's sermon abounded in pointed and very trite allusions to the social and commercial prob- lems of the day.

Clippings. NEWS IN A NUTSHELL. "IRISH, YOU KNOW." Paddy Heffernan (discussing the eligibility of a prospective daughter-in-law with the young lady's father): Sure, 'tis not the girl's looks that I object to. But she do be having a terrible impediment in her walk. Mick Murphy Thrue for you. But (with a sudden inspiration) sure she doesn't limp when she isn't walking. SAVKD BY SUNSHINE. I think the superb health of my family is, to a great extent, due to the habit we have of almost living in sunshine," says a well-known doctor. Every bright day all the shutters are open, and the entire house gets the benefit of sunlight. It drives away dampness, mould, microbes, and blue devils, and puts us all in good humour and health. I cannot imagine good sanitary conditions and darkness, Even my cellar is as light as I can possibly make it. People who live in badly lighted apartments have little colour and less health. I, for one, do not intend to spend my days in an atmosphere of gloom." A DOG'S RELIGIOUS INSTINCTS. The Rev. Robert Gwynne, St. Mary's Vicarage, Charing Cross-road, London, writes to the Spectator Of the telling of many stories of cats and dogs there is no end, and much reading of them is a delight to the flesh, Here is a genuine one told to me by a dear and most trustworthy friend-an incumbent in Yorkshire. His dog had certain religions instincts, aud when he saw the books brought out for evening prayers retired to his corner. One evening they were brought out while he was gnawing a bone. Instinctively be dropped it and withdrew. The cab, being a pagan and carnivorous, took possession of the bone. The dog glowered at her, but budged not an inch. Scarcely had the last Amen sounded when be made one spring. The fata of that cat I have not words to describe." WHAT WOMAN CAN DO. She can look like an angel under a shaded lamp and cheese-ctoth draperies. She can endure more discomfort f or a longer period than an able-bodied man, and remember ib longer. She can close up every theatre and church in the country by refusing to work in them. She can swathe her body in woollens and sealskins and have only a ritn of cold jeb on her head, and yet not believe she is taking cold in the bitterest weather. She will go into hysterics over a mouse and walk under the nose of a prancing team of horses without getting hurt. She can make a man six feet two feel too small to live by a simple stare. She can accuse a man so confidently that he makes a clean breast of his shortcoming", sup. posing she knows what she is talking about, when she is only guosaiug. She has been known to deliver a curtain lecture that beat all the sermons in the world for teaching patience and long-suffering. MUSICIANS AND HAIR. A statistician says he has observed that musicians have, all a rule, excellent heads of hair. In the prime of life the musician's hair flourishes most, and in every hundred music devotees only ouo hairless head is mob with while in other professions about 11 in every hundred are bald. THE LAST OF THE TCRNMKK SYSTRM. At the stroke of 12 ou the night of November l"t the last of the old turnpike system will be swept away. The turnpike gates which will enjoy the distinction of thus being last in the field belong to that portion of the Shrewsbury and Holyhead road which traverses the Island of Anglesey, tbe trust for which was continued by a special Act of Parliament until November 1st, 1895. -_r' A GOLD BICYCLE, The invasion by the rich of the democratic pastime of cycling has led to all manner of ingenious devices to add to the cost and beauty of cycles. A club in Milan has succeeded in beating the record in this direction. It has had a machine made with wheels of pure gold, which it has presented to the Queen of Italy. This may be very well for ostentatious display, but for every day use good steel would certainly be preferable. --o "MR." One incident which marked the opening of the Balfour trial on Friday has apparently passed un- noticed. It was this. Mr O'Connor in making his application on the extradition question referred to his client as Balfour, pure and simple. Tho Attorney-General, on the contrary, studiously inserted the Mr when naming the defendants, and omitted it only in the case of the convicts Newman, Wright, and Hobbs. THE FAT BOY UP TO DATE. The fat boy has been superseded by the famous fat pauper of Poplar." No boy, how- ever fat, could compete with such a man. The boy could go to sleep on his feet, but he was easily enough wakened. The man, once he has closed his eye?, is impervious to anything shorter than a darning needle. The boy could sleep notwithstanding the exhortations of his good- natured master. The man went calmly off into the arms of Morpheus while the magistrate sentenced him to six weeks' hard for shirking, and the gaoler was forced to have recourse to the darning needle to rouse him. It is probable that he will prove himself as indifferent to the task- master in prison as ho was to the magistrate, in which case his name is likely to live for ever, and truth will once more be proved stranger than fiction. The name of the hero is Wm. Frederick Edwards, and he achieved immortality under the nose of Mr Mead, magistrate for tho Thames district. TULKPHONIC COMMUNICATION. A Brussels correspondent telegraphs :-Tele. phonic communication has now been estabhshed between Belgium and Holland. The service is worked on a strictly democratic basis, the maxi- mum charge for a five minutes' conversation being only 2s 6d, while a monthly subscription of about £3103 entitles the subscriber to a daily conversation at fiyed hours. SALVATION ARMY SELF DENIATI. I So far as can be at present ascertained the result of the tenth annual self-denial week of tha Salvation Army shows tha.t 230,670 has been received, compared with 227,414 last year. The largest amount comes from the United Kingdom, of course, 216,920, compared with 216,131 in 1894. Next comes Australia with £ 13,750, as against £ 11,283. America, Canada, France, Switzerland, South Africa, Sweden, and Den- mark have yet to make their returns. A CANDID CLERGYMAN. I Yesterday at St. Jameb s, Croydon, the Rev, Sydney Fleming is reported to have prefaced his sermon with the statement that last Sunday night's offertory amounted to only £ 2 10s, which was insufficient to meet expenses. Ho was told thabn lady, gorgeously attired and wearing fault- lessly white kid gloves, was observed, in her haste to cover her small gift, to drop a penny on the floor. Ha wished such people would keep the other side of the door of St. James's Church. He did not wanb them there, for there could be I no fear of God before their eyes nor respect for man. CHURCHYARD FOR BETTING. I Wordsworth reproved the spirit which led a man to 11 botaiii-,se on his mother's grave." What would he have said of those who deseorate Go'd's Acre, where may repose the ashes of their relatives. Hogarth's Idle Apprentice used tombstones as dice tables, and Francis Peacock, of Homerton, utilises them for starting-price transactions with his clients. His favourite betting ground WM Hackney Churchyard, where, like Old Mortality or Dr. Hervey, he used to wander, all if in search of a departed ancestor, or meditating an inscription for his own tomb. His real object, however, was simply to make beta with those who knew him and visited him there for that purpose. It may have been a grim sense of humour that led him to select such a locality for his clients, considering the number of "dead 'an, they were in the habit of backing. But even in a churchyard a betting man is a legal obstruction, and Peacock was therefore ifner.1 jE5, with the alternative of a month. THE JUDGE AND Tfm OATH. At the Cambridgo Assizes Mr .Justice Hawkins commented strongly upon the absurdity of the oath administered to witnesses. Was there a juryman who understood this The evidence you shall give to the Court and jury, sworn between our Sovereign Lady the Queen and the prisoner at tho bar," &c. Counsel were engaged in asking a child of seven whether she understood it. (Laughter.) He did not believe that one witness sworn that day could explain it, and his Lordship was astonialied that no one had sug- gested a simpler form than the complicated formula used in Courts. It was surprising tbat the Legislature had notti.rned its attention to tho matter and devised a much simpler form. His Lordship suggested that the '.voids I swear to God that I will speak thn truth would be sufficient for all purposes, and would be under- t stood even by little children.
I Cardiff Corporation. I ELECTIONEERING TACTICS IN THE I COUNCIL CHAMBER. I BAITING ALDERMAN SANDERS- I A Waste of Public Time, I The promise of an electioneering debate in viet of the November contests attracted quite a larg* attendance of the public at a meeting of IJhl Cardiff County Council held to-day. It wal started by Councillor George David, who eoBB1 plained of certain words used by Aldermatt Sanders at a municipal election meeting held all Canton on Friday night—words which he said reflected upon his honour and integrity as a member of the Corporation. The Mayor decided to take the feeling of the Council as to whether they would permit Slid proposed discussion to be entered into. Personally he deprecated the introduction into the Council Chamber of such matters. (Hear, hear.) It was an entirely new departure. A vote wat taken, although protested against af being irregular by Councillor Thomas and Councillor Jenkins, and resulted as follows In favour of the discussion proceed ing-AldeLl men Yorath and Jacobs, and Councillors Trounce.. Brain, Riches, Evaus, White, Hughes, Gerhold, Johnston, Waring, and David-12. Against—Aldermen, Lewis, D. Jones, Sanders, and Rses.and Councillors Thom is, Jenkins,Munn Comley, Crossman, John, and Good—11. Neutral—Alderman Edgai Jones. Messrs T. Morel, M. Morgan, F. J. Beavan, Ward, and Andrews had not at this fciotf put in appearance. As the result of the division the discussion was opened. Councillor DAVID asked Alderman Sander! whether he was correctly reported in the Soutl Wales Daily News of Saturday that at a meeting at Canton on the previous nighb he declared that Councillor David knew in the speeches ho waf making that he was deceiving the people." H( also asked Alderman Thomas Rees whether he was correctly reported in the South. Wales Daily Netof of Thursday last, that on the previous evening, at Roath, he declared that the policy of the Esti- mates Committee was simply a trick of legerde* mam." Alderman SANDERS joined in the protest of Councillor Thomas and Councillor Jenkins as to the irregularibv of this proceeding. There was nothing on the agenda respecting the poitib raised. There might have been, he said, an opening for it had he still been a chairman of committee, because there was an item on the agenda providing for questions to chairmen of committees," but he was no longer a chairman of committee. The Council, however, having decided that the subject raised by Councillor David should be gone into, he might say that the report in the South Wales Daily Neivs was on the whole a very good one but there was a context which was not given in the report, and which would have shown that he put the matter a little differently from what it appeared in the newspaper. In IllS speech at Canton he dwelb upon the Conservative claim that the new Estimates Committee had saved the rates of the town to the extent of 2d in the £ upon each rate, which would represenb over L12,000 in the 12 months. He called the attention of the meeting to the fact that the rate had been hastened," and gave the Corporation the benefit of two or three months' rates, or an additional sum taken oub of the ratepayers' pockets of about £ 19,811, or a total for the 12 months of £ 137,922. Now, taking the two rates at ls8d in the 2, as was proposed by the old Finance Committee, the amount which would have been paid by the ratepayers in the same ppriod was £ 131,24-5, or 26,687 less t) an would be collected from the town under the existing arrangement, which, it was alleged, s ived 2d in the 2. Under these circumstances lie said at Canton that he could nob believe that Mr George David himself believed that they were eally effecting tais saving, and that in his speeches he was deceiving the people. He could have said much stronger things especially if he had given way to his feelings as to the treatment he bad received from Mr George David and others. He had for long years served the town, trying to further its best interests, and he was not going to be driven away, unless the Council said he was to be driven away. (Hear, hear.) If he had been let alone, perhaps he would have resigned his seat on the aldermanic bench but he called it cruel to have been attacked in the way he had been,after having served the town fo so many years and broken down under the arduous duties connected with the promotion of the last Parliamentary Bill. It had been said that as an alderman he had rested upon his oars, but he challenged a comparisoa of his attend" ances during the last six years with thoee of some of the people who were speaking and work- ing against him, and who were seeking re-election. (Hear, hear.) AldermanREES admitted having used thewords attributed to him in the report of the Sattth Wales Daily News, and proceeded to justify them. Then followed a discussion as to whether the allegation as to tho hastening of the present rate was well-founded or otherwise, Councillor F. J. Beavan declaring that Alderman Sanders was popularly" right in his conten. tion, and that Mr David was accurate in the strict sone of the term. Councillor GEORGE DAVID had delivered a speech of great length in defence of his position, entering fully into the doings of the special Estimate.? Committee. Ha indignantly repelled tho accusation that he know- ingly deceived the public in his speeches on this financial controversy and contended that in levying the latt rato of Is 6d the Corporation had not d (parted in any degree from its custom as to the period covered thereby, and that there had been no hastening and no getting the benefit of an additional three months. The Special Estimates Committee did nob, he said, in any way alter the period in respect of which the rate was to cover, but it did say that it was only righb and fair that the rate should be collected within the period in respeot of which it was paid. Ib was made in respect of the period from the 31st of March to the 30ill of September, and it was only right that it should be raised, if possible, within that period. And so the Esti- mates Committee said, in order to facilitate the collection of the rate, in order to enable the officials of the Corporation to have more time to make up the demand notes and to serve them, and afterwards go round and collect, that the rate should be passed by the Council two months earlier than it had been before, but that the period in respect of which it was made should remain precisely the same as previously. That was whore Alderman Sanders weill) entirely astray. The only thing that had been done, he repeated, was to give the officials more time to collect the rate within the period in respect of which it was made. Councillor JBNXINS wanted to know what the rate would have been if the 21,500 pnt down in the estimates for relief works for the unemployed had been retained in full, Councillor DAVID replied that there would be floating balance to meet any likely demand in thij direction. Oi course, if the -21,500 had not been withdrawn the rate would have had to be moret (Councillor Jenkins That's my point.) But th. same remark applied to every other item that ",at taken off. The MAYOR made an appeal to members to stot the discussion. Alderman SANDKRS Is nothing to come out 01 this long talk ? Councillor DAVID: I should have thought Alderman Sanders would have had the grace t< apologise. Alderman SANDERS I should have thought that Mr David would have apologised many. time before now. That's the difference. The MAYOR Gentlemen, I must close this discussion for the sake of the business of the town. T;:(, debate, whioh had occupied over two hours, then ended.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,— At the invitation of the Splott Ward Liberal Association and of a large section of the inhabitants of the Ward, I have agreed to beeome a candidate at the forthcoming Municipal Election. As I have been associated with the import trade of Cardiff for the last 15 years, and have watched the owth of our town during that period, I can lay claim to a thorough knowledge of the requirements of this great Port. The imperative need of developing to its fullest extent the import trade of Cardiff is admitted on all sides. At present this ti ade, which finds so much employment for labour. has but a small representation on the Council, and as your interests and mine are identical, I appeal with the greatest confidence for your support. Being a large ratepayer myself hould naturally use my best endeavour to keep the rates at the lowest limit consistent with the requirements and progress of the Borough, If you ,1r, me the honour to elect me, you may rely upon my servir.g > oa to the best of my ability.

The Man About Town. I The death of Mr Daniel Owen, the Welsh novelist, has served to call attention once more to the fact that there has been little or nothing of Welsh literature translated into English. In an extravagant eulogy of Welsh literature the other day the Star said that the circulation of Daniel Owen's Rhys Lewis would in all probability rouse the envy even of a successful English novelist, with all the world for his public. For the sake of the late Mr Owen, his executors, and his publishers, one would like to believe this for the sake of Welsh literature and its supporters one hopes it is an accurate estimate; but is there one individual who knows anything of literature and publishing and of literature in Wales who does not set these statements down as extravagant nonsense ? 40 Without detracting from the fame and memory of the late Mr Daniel Owen, it is a fact that many ardent Welshmen in Welsh Wales reading the obituary notice contained in these columns have confessed that they have never seen or even heard of his books before many more have spoken of their desire to read his novels and their inability to get hold of them. During the last fifteen years he wrote five novels, all of them instinct with the Welsh spirit, and full of that fugitive charm which invariably eludes the translator." This last statement is made by the warne writer. If there are five such novels from the pen of the late author of "Rbys Lewis." or any Welsh author, for the sake of the Ifanie of Welsh literature and the benefit of that great reading public speaking the English language, I would ask that some prominent Welsh literati turn their attention to translating these novels whioh are instinct with the Welsh spirit," To say that the charm of Welsh literature escapes the translator is to beg the case. The primary facts of existence are the same, and men are moved by love, devotion, anger, revenge, and the desire for self-preservation and advancement the world over. We want to know how Welsh writers deal with these feelings, and to say that they cannot be translated is to claim something for Wales that is not claimed for any other people ancient or modem. I The demand Is made for translations of Welsh literature into the English tongue as much for the benefit of thousands of English speaking monoglot Welshman as for the great English reading public, who will never know what W"lps I thinks and feels except through the medium of translations. I am confident that Wales would be better appreciated if her literature were known by the aid of the translator. One would think that the friends of Wales would favour the handing down in the language of the greatest literature in existence of Welsh thought and ex perience in Wales as manifested in its own literature. Extravagant eulogy of Welsh literature will not increase its influence or make it better known- English translations will. It is absurd to say that the language of Shakespeare, Milton, and Tennyson, and of Lewis Morris will not convey the fugitive charm of the Welsh spirit. Every literature and almost every language has contributed largely to the wealth and variety of English books. ( China and India, Greece and Rome, Italy and Spain, Germany and France, Russia and Scandinavia have yielded their treasures which have found appreciative readers in English and Welsh homes through transla- tion. Unquestionably they have lost some of their charm, yet their power is but slightly impaired in translation, and we would not on this account be left without the wisdom of the writers of Greece and Rome, the impressiveness of Dante, the humour of Cervantes, the seriousness of Goethe, the wit and the sarcasm of Voltaire, the social outlook of Tolstoi and Ibsen. If the late Daniel Owen—who by common consent was the greatest novelist that Wales has seen—did for Wales what Jane Barlow is doing for Ireland. Hall Caine for the Isle of Man, Blackmore for Devonshire, and a knot of writers for Scotland, then no greater service can be done to his memory, to Wales and to the great reading public than to give his novels to the world in an English dress. Young Wales- educated Wales—has plenty of work before it. Instead of abusing the stranger for his ignorance of the beauties of the country, the good qualities of its people, and the power of its literature, they should exert themselves in the direction I have already indicated. There is not even a good and easily accessible collec- tion of the translations already made. Lady Charlotte Guest has shown by her translation of the Mabinogion that English is an excel- lent vehicle for Welsh romance, and no one can reasonably find fault with the transla- tions of the lolo MSS." There is a wide field here for honest labour in the pleasant paths of literature, worthy the attention of Cymmrodorion Societies and Young Wales" organisations, who are consumed with the desire to do some- thing worthy of Wales. I have only just looked over the hedge into the field of I, Welsh literature and found the prospect entrancing. What Wales needs is a band of enthusiastic literati to open wide the gates to the whole English-speaking world. Barry is ambitious in a praiseworthy direc. tion, and she will make a good start in the formation of a public museum by obtaining the whole of the archaeological remains dis- covered on Barry Island during the recent excavations. A beginning is everything, and knowing the vigorous development of Barry one need not be surprised to find there in the course of a very few years a capital museum. One thing they should guard against, and that is the bringing together a collection of old lumber which may be curious, but unin- structive. Let them set out from the beginning to collect upon scientific and int elligent lines, with a well-defined end in I view. Cardiff has got as much old lumber to spare from the town collection as would stock a Dime Museum of Freaks and Curiosities. Barry should avoid this. In reading Wirt SikesV" British Goblins the other day I came upon a passage which is interesting in view of the work now pro- ceeding on Barry Island. The volume was published in 1880, and the passage serves to show the changes of the past 15 years :—" On Barry Island, near Cardiff, is the famous well of St. Barruc or Barri, which was still frequented by the credulous up to May, 1879, at which time the island was closed against visitors by its owner, Lord Windsor, and converted into a rabbit warren. Tradition directs that on Holy Thursday he who is troubled with any disease of the eyes should go to this well, and having thoroughly washed his eyes in its water, shall drop a pin in it. The innkeeper there formerly found great numbers of pins-a pint, in one instance—when cleaning out the well. It had long been neglected by the sole resi- dent of the island, whose house was a long distance from the well, and at a point nearer the main land; but pins were still dis- covered there from time to time." Again:—" There was in old days a chapel on this island; no vestige of it remains. Tradition says' that St. Barruc was buried there, and the now barren and deserted islet appears to have been anciently a popular place among the saints. St. Cadoc had one of his residences there. He was one day sitting on a hill top in that island when he saw the two saints, Barruc and Gwalches, drawing near in a boat, and as lie looked the boat was overturned by the wind. Both saints were drowned, and Cadoc's manual book, which they had in the boat with them, was lost in the sea. But when Cadoc proceeded to order his dinner, a salmon was brought to him, which, being cut open, was found to have the missing manual book in its belly in an unimpaired condition." Barry should stari a quest for St. Barruc's bones and St. Cadoc's manual book which was saved from the sea in such mar- vellous fashion by the salmon! It is being acknowledged everywhere that the tramway systems should be in the hands of the Corporations over whose roads they run. In some cases they are being successfully managed by Corporation Com- mittees. Leeds has just adopted electricity in place of horse power for the trams, and the Manchester Corporation have taken steps to acquire the tramways for the town at some future period. One great advantage possessed by a Corporation owning the tramways is the power to' regulate their running for the benefit of the townspeople and the full control which they possess over the roads. The masters of the principal thoroughfares in Cardiff are not the Corporation or the ratepayers, buo the Tramways Co. The Company won't repair their tracks; the Cor- poration threaten futilely, but do nothing hence the roads are a disgrace to the town and a positive danger. If the Corpora- tion owned the tramways there would be an end to all this, but even now the Council have the power in their own hands, and for some reason don't use it. Individual mem- bers of the Corporation have deolarod the condition of the streets to be dangerous and disgraceful. Why do not they insist again and again on the danger and the disgrace being removed by the Tramway Company or see thac the Corporation workmen repair the roads and charge the cost to the Company ? A prospective purchase of the tramways should not be made the excuse for neglect- ing the roads by a private company.

I Supposed Abduction. ALLEGED KIDNAPPING OF A YOUNG LADY. Mr Sullivan, a prominent member of the Battersea Social Democratic Federation, made an extraordinary application on Saturday, at the South-Western Police Court, London. He said he was engaged to be married to a young lady, and the marriage was to take place that day. Her parentis objected to the marriage, because he and she did not intend to conform to the present marriage laws. Mr Cluer Whab I Do you mean to go to a registry offiCt}!- The Applicant: No, air, we don't believe in the marriage laws 11.11 all as at present constituted. Mr Cluer: Parents would naturally raise an objection.—The Applicant Well, this lady- Miss Edith Lamchesber (a well-known Socialist and candidate at the recent School Board election) —is 24 years of age but her parents and her brothers have, I believe, carried her off by violence, and now I am given to understand she is either detained in a madhouse or somewhere else. Mr Cluer It's no use coming to me. You bad better go to the High Couri of Justice. The Applicant; Would it be any use consult, ing a solicitor ? Mr Cluer Certainly, if you can afford it The Applicant I shall get the means, if it cost me my life. The applicant then left the court, accompanied by Mrs Gray, another Socialist and a member of the Wandsworth and Clapham Board of Guardians. ADDITIONAL PARTICULARS. A correspondent sends to the St. James's Gazette some remarkable particulars of the case referred to above. It is to the effect that Miss Edith Lanchester, a young lady 24 years of age, who for the past five or six years has been an active member of the Social Democratic Federation, has been kidnapped by her father and brothers, who were desirous of preventing her setting up housekeeping with a young man without going through the marriage ceremony. Miss Lanchester, it appears, was a candidate for the School Board at the last election, standing for West Lambeth as a Social Democratic candidate. Prior to this she had been a school teacher. For the past two years she had been lodging with a Mrs Gray at Battersea. The last-named lady is also a member of the Socinl Democratic Federa- tion and a member of the Battersea Board of Guardians. Preparations for the young couple commencing housekeeping were made, apartments taken, and furniture bought, and on Saturday they were to have taken up their abode together in their new home. On Friday, however, Miss Lanchester was forcibly removed from her home by her father and three brothers, who were accompanied by another gentleman, said to be a doctor. They forcibly prevented Mrs Gray from interfering with their plans, and despite the struggles of the young lady herself, who stoutly resisted and whose clothing was much torn, she was carried to a brougham in waiting, and the party drove off for an unknown destination. Mrs Gray was, however, informed that the driver of the brougham had stated in conversation that he was waiting to take a young girl to a lunatic asylum. A RETICENT BROTHER. A representative of the Press Association called yesterday at Salvador, Liverpool-road, Kingston- hill, where Miss Lancheater's parents reside, and saw one of her brothers with reference to her alleged abduction. The brother, however, declined to give any information whatever as to the whereabouts of the young lady. He stated that Miss Lanchaster's mental condition had been the subject of some concern to the family for some time, and that anexpertiadiseasesof the brain had been commissioned to examine her. Upon a certi- ficate from that gentleman the family feltitistifit-d in removing her to a place of detention. The name and address of the medical gentleman were not disclosed.
A Plucky Seaman at Card iff. a REMARKABLE RESCUE FROM DROWNING. Meritorious Work by Ambulanqs Men. In the early hours of this morning a most remarkable rescue from drowning was effected at Cardiff. It appears that a seaman named vYouug, who belonged to the steamer North Britain, was standing on the deck of the steamer when he heard a splash He at ouco proceeded to the spob and found that a man had fallen into the dock. Young succeeded in getting him out and sent jiim on to his ship— the s.s. Usk. Young, seeing that the man was intoxicated, followed him, and they had nob gone far vhen the man again tumbled into the water. This time Young had considerable difliculty in getting the man ashore. and when his efforts wero rewarded with success the man was apparently dead. Young placed him on the quay and ran for assistance. Dock- constable Munroe and Berthingman Harris were soon on the spot, and at once set about restoring animation by Dr. Sylvester's method. They worked on for close upon two hours, at the end of which time signs of life were manifest. Shortly after the man regained sufficient con- sciousness to be able to state that his name was Thomas Costello, and that he was a donkeyman on board the f.s. Usk.
