I FOOTBALL. TWO SUCCESSIVE DEFEATS: ONE DRAW. j BARRY A WIN A.S.R.S. CUP. (By JENNERITE.) Barry commenced their holiday pro- gramme rather badly on Good Friday, when they were beaten by Mardy by the odd goal. Under Southern League auspices, the game was played at Mardy, and in the opening stages the homesters pressed, Ssdgley sav- ing well. Millard had hard lines .with shot which struck the post. Before half- t: 1I' the homesters had scored twice, and in the second portion of the game the Barry- ites were outplayed for some time. Shortly before time the Linnets reduced the lead through Greenaway. Barry A played a league encounter with Barry West End, at Jenner Park on .Good Friday, and for a Seconds' game the atten- dance was a record. In the first half the "A's," playing against a strong wind, bom- barded the "Westerns' goal, iJohnson saving brilliantly on several occasions. The "West End, however, turned the tables, and -close on half-time a well-timed a.nd well-placed centre from Tippet was sent into the net by La they. The .same player again netted a few minutes later. Tn the second half Barry "A" equalised through Pratt and Rowlands. On Monday, April zith, at six o'clock Cadoxton Old Boys will meet Cardiff Corin- thians at Jenner Park, Barry. Mr. C. Brit- tain. captain of the Cardiff City A.F.C'. will be the referee. Admission, stand and 1/ fiokl Gd. boys under 14, 2d. The proceeds will be devoted to the furnishing fund of the Barry Junior Unionist Institute. Mid-Rlhondda had something to wipe off the slate when they met Barry in the Southern League competition on the Tony- pandy enclosure last Saturday, for at the beginning of the season they received a check at Jenner Park, losing by the odd goal in three. The home team, however, more than avenged this defeat, for with the whole eleven playing sound and at times brilliant football, they emerged victorious by four goals to nil. From the outset they were the attacking s ide, but Barry set up a stubborn defence, and this, with inaccu- rate shooting, kept the score sheet clean until near the interval, when Collier put through from a centre by Copestake. After the interval the home side maintained their superiority, and three more goals were added, Love, Collier, and Smith being the scorers. By defeating Cadoxton Old Boys at Jen- ner Park laftt Saturday by two goals to one, Barry A. won the A.S.R.S. Cup. The ground was in a wretched state, and mili- tated against good play. Cadoxton Old Boys put up a plucky fight, but the A's were decidedly superior in every depart- ment, and thoroughly deserved to win. Green netted for Barry A from a penalty, and Farmer added to the score. Late in the second half E. Jones found the net for 11 the Old Jioys. At the close ot the game Councillor J. Felix Williams- presented the A.S.R.S. Cup to Green, the captain of the winning team. Barry St. Mary's drew with Cardiff Heath last Saturday, the score being a goal each. •? Barry's holiday fixture with Abertillery at Jenner Park on Easter Monday proved to be one of the most uninteresting games of the season, and it ended in a pointless draw. Only five of the 22 players played up to form. They were Walton, Catlow, and Bates for Barry, and Jordon and Hurst for the visitors. Barry had several chances in the first half, but failed; in fact, two open goals were missed. Millard, the home centre, was painfully weak, and he allowed himself to be beaten time after time. There was not a good movement in the whole game. and the 3,000 spectators were greatly dis- appointed with the performance. The 'Tilleryites played a much superior game in the second half to that of the homesters, and had it not been for the sterling defence of Walton, and the hard work of Catlow, the visitors would have been through, for they worked their hardest to effect a score. Jk K Tiii, itti-actioii at Jenner Park on Easter Monday afternoon was the Cal diff and Dis- trict League fixture between Barry A and Splott Albions, the A's winning by two goals to nil. Fowler, the homesters' right back, scored for his side from a free kick on the half-way line. In the second half Farmer added to the Barry score. Barry West End met Cadoxton Old Boys in tho semi-final for the Ninian Cup, at Jen- ner Park, on Easter Tuesday. The tussle proved a rare one. both sides being evenly matched. The Old Boys drew first blood through Jones, but it was not long after- wards beforo La they equalised. Early in the second half Griffiths took advantage of a beautifully-placed centre, and ho had little difficulty in giving the Cadoxtonians the lead. ,?;ta i ne d a big log-, by Then the Old Boys sustained a big loss by the retirement of Harvey, one of their half- backs, who badly injured, Ins knee, and had to be medically treated. After several cor- ners, Lathev brought matters level. There was no further score. The match will be re-played at Jenner j Park next Saturday afternoon. The final for the Bevan Shield, hdween Cadoxton Victorias and Hoath Park United, will be played at Jenner Park on Saturday next, at 2.45 p.m. A re-play game between Barry West End and Cadoxton Old Boys, in the semi-final of the Ninian Cup, will follow at 4.11 p.m. It has been decided to play the final for the South Wales Cup. between Barry and Cardiff City, at Ninian Park. on Thursdav. April 23rd. W. Jennings, Barry, has signed on for Bolton Wanderers for next season. Barry Town R.F.C. obtained a. well- deserved win of a converted try to nil against Llanharan, at Cardiff Arms Park, on Easter Tuesday. Hayes scored a. beautiful trv for the Barryites. and ho had no difficulty in adding to the points. SATURDAY'S FOOTBALL FIX- TURES. ASSOCIATION. BARRY v. NEWPORT COUNTY. At Newport.

ITHE LATE MR EVAN DAVIES
THE LATE MR. EVAN DAVIES. SYjIPATHETIC REFERENCE AT N.U.T. CONFERENCE. POSTHUMOUS ELECTION TO THE EXECUTIVE. At the Annual Conference of the National Union, of Teachers, which was opened at Lowestoft on Easter Monday, .sympathetic reference was made to the death of Mr. Evan Da vies, Barry, who had been one of the representatives for Wales upon the exe- cutive of the N.U.T. for a number of years. Again this year Mr. Davies was elected as one of the executive members and in announcing the result of the voting, the President (Mr. W. B. Steer, Derby) said that a great grief had stricken all their hearts in the thought that Mr. Evan Davies, one who was considered worthy bv all his follows to represent them on the executive had never been able to perform his duties for the year. His death came as a blow to all their hearts, because they loved him. They would never know, the President said, of the struggle of Mr. Davies' life against incipient disease. T'hev were pained at the way in which death had called away an honoured colleague. He asked them, as a mark of esteem towards Mr. Davies to rise in their places. The whole of the delegates then stood in silence. M'iss Bale (Cardiff) asked whether it were not possible to avoid a lye-election in Wales by taking the next name on the list—that of Miss Emily Phipps, of Swansea. The President said that was no precedent for that. The opinion of the law oiffcers of the Union had been taken, and it was I necessary to have a bye-election. THE FUNERAL. The funeral took place at Cadoxton-jnxta- Xeath on Tuesday of the late Mr. Evan Davies, assistant master at Holton-road Schools, Barry, whoso sad death was recorded in the Barry Dock News" last week. The N.U.T. Conference, of the executive of which tho deceased was member, was represented at the funeral by Mr. Charles W. Crook. B.A., B.Sc. (the new vice-president), Mr. Rhys Nicholas (Cwmavon), and Mr. Philip Thomas (Neath); and from Barry were Mr. A. W. Storey, the president of the local Association, and several teachers. There was a large tt- tendance at the funeral, testifying to the esteem in which Mr. Davies was held. The Hev, James Edwards, Zoar Chapel, Neath, officiated.

1 BARRY EDUCATIONI AUTHORITY
BARRY EDUCATION AUTHORITY. INCREASE IN THE COST OF EDUCATION. PROBABLE EDUCATION RATE OF J I IN THE £ Councillor D. Lloyd (the chairman) pre- sided at the monthly meeting of the Barry Education Committee on Wednesday cven- ing, the 8th instant. The members pre- sent were Miss M. E. Meredith, Messrs. J. Lowdon, J.P. (vice-chairman), S. R. Jones, Edgar Jones, M.A., T. Preeco Prichard, J. Eeiix AVilliamr, W. Fowler, F. E. J. Mur- relL, G. Wareham, D. E. S. Browne, F. C Milner, Howell AViliiaius, J. Marshal], E. AValton, Dr. P. J. O'Donnell, James Jones, D. T. Howe, and J. E. Levers. "OMÉX CARETAKERS' WAGES. The Buildings and Sites Committee, hav- ing received application, on behalf of the women caretakers, for an advance of 2 per week in their wages, they resolved to obtain a return of the wages paid to care- takers at Cardiff, Rho-ndda, Pontypridd, and the County of Glamorgan. Mr S. R. Jones now a.skod what would be tho advantage of sending to these places ? Mr. Felix WiMams: It is a reasonable thing to get information cf what is paid in other places. Mr. S. R. Jones: I don't object to it. only I do not know what point was behind it, seeing that we pay on measurement. Dr. O'Donnell: I think the point is that wo raised the wages of the caretakers in the offices, hencc the present application. The action of tho Committee was ap- proved. STAFFING OF THE INFANTS' SCHOOLS. liie question of the staffing of infants' schools having been deferred by the Schools -Management Committee for two months, Mr. Browne asked that before this ques- tion eaiuo on for consideration, he would like the Clerk to prepare a list of the names; of untrained and uncertificated teachers now in the Committee's employ, who were taken over from the old School Board, giving the salaries they were receiv- ing, the number of years they had been in their employ, and also to set out the dif- ference, if any, in their duties to those of I the trained and certificated teachers in the I schools. APPOTXTMIENT OF MARRIED f A TEACHERS. I The question of the appointment of mar- ried women as teachers ii-as a-Iso referred to by Mr. D. E. S. Browlle. It arose from the action of the Schools Management Com- mittee in confirming the appointment of Mrs. Pemberton and Mrs. Perry as temporary teachers at Holton-road Girls' and Gladstone- road Girls' Schools, at respective salaries of £ 88 and £ 70 per annum. Mr. Browne pointed* out that there were plenty of unmarried teachers who were wait- ing for appointments. Dr. O'Donnell: But there are no vacan- cies. Those two ladies arc on the supply list. They are only temporary appoint- ments. Perhaps they will only be engaged for three weeks or a month at a time. Mr. Browne: Are there not any number of ladies unmarried, who are waiting for, and are desirous of obtaining, appointments at the schools? Dr. OVDonnell There are, but there are no appointments. But there are no appli- So far as we are aware, for tem- porary appointments. Mr. Browne: Then I movo that the ap- pointments be advertised, and that we re- ceivo applications for these particular tem- porary appointments. There are many com- plaints. It appears that there are dozens of applicant,s who would be only too glad to embrace this opportunity of getting tem- porary engagements pending their obtain- ing permanent appointments under this or any other bod v. Mr. Lowdon pointed out that Mr. Browne did not realise that these- were simply emer- gency ipl)oiiltritc-,nts, i;-Iiero -teachert-; broke down, and classes were consequently left without teachers. Someone had to be ob- tamed in a hurry, and if they advertised, probablj- the sick teachers would be back be- foro the a-dvei-ti.fee.ment appeared and the candidates interviewed. Then, again, the teachers of the classes were very exper- ienced, and it would be difficult for the young teacher just starting to step in and at once take up the work of the experienced teacher. The clafis would probably suffer very much, and when the teacher came back, there would be a lot of back \ur1( to make up. Mr. Browne then withdraw his previous resolution, and moved that in future it be an instruction to the Chairman, when mak- ing temporary appointments, that such ap- pointmonts be made from unmarried ladies, and that a list be prepared of unmarried ladies seeking appointments. Mr. Howell Williams seconded, and it was carried. GRANT TO BOY SCOUTS AND GIRL CADETS. The Schools' Management Committee re- ferred to the Education Committee an ap- plication from Colonel J. A. Hughes, C.B., on behalf of the Barry Boy Scouts, for an increase in the grant to the local Scouts' Evening Classes. A report upon the work of the classes was published in the "Barry Dock News" last week, and a, report from Miss Mabel Stewart, the distriet e-oinmandaiit of the Girl Cadets' Evening Classes, was now pre- sented, showing that the classes had been a popular feature in the work of the girls, and there had been excellent results. The Committee decided to increase the boys' grant from t30 to £ 40, and to grant £ 30 to the girls' classes. THE EDUCATION ESTIMATE. The education estimate of receipts and ex- penditure for the ensuing twelve months was considered. The payments were presented at £ 52,061 6s. 7d., compared with £ 50,998 1.4s. 8d. last year, when the estimate was overspent by The estimate for teachers' salaries were t-33,087 9s. 7d. In this year's estimate £:3:t,ï,!8 was allotted for the salaries of teachers. The receipts were approximated at £ 24,00.1 2s., and the amount of precept at £ 28,0.16 4 s. Gel., compared with £ 22,9-11 3s. Gd. last year. In consequence of the special grant for the year now closing being £ 1,718 Os. Id. less than was anticipated, it was decided to add that sum to the estimate for the coming year. The estimate was eventually reduced by £6-0, thus allowing for an education rate of about 1/1 jn the L*. The Council later decided to order a pre- empt for the amount mentioned, less. £ 7-1 to the overseers. THE ANNUAL MEETING. The next meeting of the Committee, the annual meeting, will be held on April tli, at e,igllt p.m. APPOINTMENT OF UNIVERSITY COL- LEGE aOYERXOH. Mr. J. R. Lovers was re-elected to repre- sent the Committee on the board of gover- nors of the I niversity Colleg^e of South AVales and Monmouthshire. This was aU the business.
If a handful of common salt is added to the rinsing water it keeps the clothes from freezing until dry. Bars of soap should be stacked up as children build houses of wooden bricks, 80 that air may get freely to aa much of thw surface as possible. If new shoes lift at the heel this can be easily remedied by rubbing a little soft soap on the heel of the stocking or on the heel of the shoe. To brighten a mirror rub with a clean cloth dipped in a cream made of whitening and cold water, to which a few drops of ammonia have been added; polish well with old newspapers. A good plan during the winter months is to put a bundle of wood and a shovel of Iooals on top of the kitchen range before going to bed. In the morning they are quite warm and dry, and the fire bums up in half the usual time. To keep the breakfast hot for one, put the bacon or chop on a warm plate, cover with another warm plate, and stand the teapot on top. This will keep it hot for quite a long time. To renew velvet, cover the face of a hot flat-iron with a wet cloth; hold the wrong side of tho velvet next to this cloth until thoroughly steamed,' then brush the pile with a soft brush. If you want your lamp3 to give a good light, the wicks should be changed every three months at least. Tho old wicks, if cut into two-inch lengths and stored in a tin, make excellent fire-lighteis. Linseed oil is excellent for cleaning var- nished grained paint. It should be applied with a piece of clean soft flannel, rubbed well in, and polished with a soft duster. And only the very tiniest drop of oil should be used. After washing the hair, it should hang down the back for a few hours at least. It is a bad plan to wash it at night, as sleep- ing packs the hair together tightly too soon I after the shampoo. I' When a gentleman's silk hat becomes spotted with rain or ruffled hold it before a fixe and rub the nap firmly and evenly in the right direction with a soft velvet pad, and it will look almost as well as if it had been ironed.
1 FOR BABY'S FEET. The time for changing the knitted boots to regular leather shoes, with socks, entirely depends upon whether the child is forward or not. Unless there is any tendency to weakness in the ankles strap shoes are best, both indoors and out; where ankles are weak, boots which. hold the feet pretty tight are better. Some shops make a special line in babies' boots, and you are likely to get better value from them than in a shop where' np particular attention is paid to what ba.by requires. I RESERVE STOCK. There are so many occasions in which the Housewife is called upon to provide for the unexpected guest or guests that the wise woman will make a point of keeping by her certain condensed and tinned foods that can be dished up in a trice aud require either no cooking at all or very little. The reserve store should contain some of the excellent condensed soups either in powder or cake form that are now obtainable at almost any grocer's; a tin (or glass) of tongue or brawn; some potted meat for sandwiches; a tin of tomatoes; another of sardines; and some rice that can be quickly cooked. To WASH SILVER. The following mixture is excellent for washing silver: Take equal parts of common yellow soap and whiting. Melt the soap. then add the whiting, and make it into a- cake. Apply it with a piece of flannel and plenty of warm water, then well rinse and dry, and the silver will not only look beauti- fully bmght, but will not require cleaning so often. We always use this soap for re- moving egg stains from spoons and find it, invaluable. WOBBY BRINGS INDIGESTION. Worry, it has been proved, has a most de- pressing effect upon that hypersensitive organ the stomach, which at euch times be- comes a most unwilling and laggard ser- vant. Indeed, it is safe to say that unless encouraged by a cheerfu- temper and bright, or at least hopeful, thoughts, the stomach will play truant or sulk and do no work which it can shirk. The physiological ex- planation of this is the close alliance of the great sympathetic nerves, which are worse than the telegraph for carrying bad news; the worry and anxiety which depress the brain produce simultaneously a semi- paralysis of the nerves of the stomach, gastric juices will not flow, and—presto! there is indigestion. —— ——.
SOME USEFUL RECIPES
SOME USEFUL RECIPES. SAUCE FOR COLD MEAT.—A stick of horse- radish a little fresh-made mustard, a small quantity of pounded white sugar, four table- spoonfuls of vinegar and two tablespoon- fula of thick cream. Grate the radish and mix the other ingredients before put- ting in the cream. Stir the whole well and the sauce is ready for use. SWEBTBREAD AND CUCUMBER SALAD.—Soak a small pair of sweetbreads for an hour in cold salted water; then drop them into boil- ing salted water to which has been added a teaspoonful of vinegar, and cook twenty-five minutes; remove from the fire and again put into cold water to blanch and harden. When perfectly cold, remove the pipes and mem- branes, and cut into small pieces. Peel and slice two cucumbers very thin, and mix with the sweetbreads. Just before serving pour over the mixture a cup of mayonnaise dress- ing. PORK PrEs.-Make a short cruet with three- quarters of a pound of flour and six ounces of lard. Knead into a stiff dough with cold water. Roll out the pastry about a quarter of an inch thick, line the tins with it and fill them with the pork, prepared thus: Cut up a pound of pork, fat and lean, in small square pieces, season with a teaspoonful of salt, half a teaspoonful of pepper and the same of allspice. Cover the pies with paste, wet the edges, and press firmly together. Ornament the top and make a hole in the centre. Brush over with egg, and bake in a moderate oven. STEWED OXTA.IL.-This is an exoellent dish but one that is apt to be forgotten. Joint the tail carefully and fry it in two ounces of dripping till nicely browned. Take up the tail, and put in an onion and a carrot sliced. When lightly fried put back .the pieces of meat, cover with stock, and stew very slowly for three hours. When quite tender, put the piece of tail on a hot dish. Skim the fat off the gravy and strain it. Into a clean saucepan put one ounce of butter and stir in one ounce of flour till blended, then add gradually one pint of the gravy. Let it come to the boil, season to taste, colour a nice brown, and pour over the meat. Serve very hot.
