Shortly before his death, the late Nr. Lewis Lewis wrote a letter to Alderman Dan Jones, which the latter says he will always cherish.

The great controversy which threa- tens tc1 cause a split in the ranks of the Established Church, continues to ex- cite widespread interest. The trouble, it, will be remembered, a;rose through the ,admu;uist; \ati o n of Holy Communion 'by the Anglican Bishops of T'ganda and Mombasa at the end of a conference of niissionarieo of various Christian sects at ivilviiyu, in the East African Protectorate.

The "Herasy" Charge. I The Bisfcop of Zanzibar (Dr. Frank Weston) took no part in the Kikuyu eonferenctt, and afterwards accused the Bishops ot Uganda and Mombasa of "heresy," demanding their iormal con- demnation by the Archbishop of Canter- bury. The Bishops who celebrated Holy Communion at Kikuyu are Dr. J. J. Willis (Bishop of Uganda) and Dr. W. G. Peel (Bishop of Mombasa). Notable Letters.

Worn, a resident in the locality of Gwa^in-cae-gurwen, is the name and home of that Inmate of the Swansea Workhouse whose apparent mabdity to ^ipi ess hilnself has cau eb much speculation. He was identified this morning by a Mr. Jenkins, who saw him at the Work- house and greeted him. The man smiled a greeting in return, and came towards his friend with ex- tended hand. Dr. Porter expressed the vffew that the man is op, his right mind, but has not the power to express his thoughts. Tiie1 muscles of the jaw would not con- tract. The man has been in the Workhouse for two months, and has not uttered a syllable during that time.

THE FLOUNCE. I WILL IT FIGURE IN FUTURE FAShlSNS V A fashion expert states that flounces I have a rival in the bouffant or puff effects for which some ot the Pans modistes are just now seeking to win favour. Whether or not the flounce will figure in fashions of the near future seems yet uncertain. At present it is a dominant feature in dress. There are signs, both in London and in Paris, of a revolt in the world of fashion against the shaplessness-the absence ot definite figure-in the pre- sent modes. Extreme height is the distinctive fea- ture of the newest Paris hats.

LLANBYSm STRIKE. EX-SWANSEA CLERGYMAN AND HIS BELL RINGERS. The bell-ringers of Llandyssul Parish are on strike. The origin or the trouble is said to be that the vicar of the parish (the ltev. E. D. Henry) objected to the ringing of the "joy-bsiis" -on Christmas Eve, on the ground that his family (wife and son) were not well. For the first time within living memory the time-honoured custom of saluting Christmas morn with a peal of bells was not observed. On New fear's Eve a watch-night service was held, but the old year was rung out and the New Year ushered in, not in the usual manner with the joyous pealing of all the bells, but the melancholy dirge ex- tracted from one bell by a youth. The Rev. E. D. Henry was formerly curate in charge of Sc. Jude's Church, Mount Pleasant, Swansea.
