Ferndale. The bills are out for the Higher Grade An- nual Concerts. We are all sure these annual concerts are a treat that no one should miss. Their musical drills, tableaux vivants, glees, and choruses, have been rehearsed with care and ability, and are well worthy the patronage of all the people of Ferndale and neighbourhood. The concerts will be held on Wednesday and Thursday next, and a good programme will cer- tainly be given. On Saturday the "Swan of the Lake" Lodge of Ancient Shepherds, which has its head quar- to's at the Maxwell Hotel, held its annual demonstration. The procession started from the lodge room at three o'clock, headed by the celebrated Prize Band, and paraded the princi- pal streets of the town. On their return a most excellent dinner had been provided by Mrs David Evans, to which about 160 members sat. The tables having been cleared, a splendid con- cert was held under the presidency of Mr John Davies, undfer-majiagcr, who di,-cllaited the duties in his usual able and genial manner. The accompanist was Mr Dan Williams, while tho following well-known singers gave their ser- vices Messrs J. Glyntewi Jones, David Grif- fiths, David Morris, and Daniel Williams. A very able speech on the value of Friendly Socie- ties was delivered by the chairman. Mr Evan Enoch, the energetic secretary, gave the fol- lowing statistics concerning his lodge: The "Swan of the Lake" was started on the 18th of August, 1883, with four members, and no capi- tal; to-day they are 181 members, with a capital of E618 to their credit. They have paid out during their 14 years' existence in sick pay and funeral expenses the mangiiificent sum of £ 1,911. In the lucid and eloquent speech that Mr Enoch made, lie paid an excellent tribute to the officers, especially the trustees and treasurer He said further that he had a very pleasant duty to perform, namely, to present Mr Wil- liam Heard, one of the trustees from the com- mencement, with a photo in oil of himself. Ali Heard had taken the greatest interest in the lodije all along, and had been of very great service in assisting to place the fund where the highest rate of interest possible could be obtained. (Applause). Mr Hoard very suita- b'y responded. The following Past Masters of the lodge were presented with the emblem of the Order: Messrs Abel Jacob, G. W. Thomas, David Morris, Thomas Jones, and John Tho mac Mr W. Heard ma,de the presentation. Several new members joined, and the singing of "Hen w!ad fy Nhadau" brought the meet.ngf to a close. <' Sinrje I}10 Commencement, of this month the Kev R. T. Coleman has been here organising a branch of the Forward Movement. The meet- im-s are held three times every Sunday in the Timor Hall, and aro very well attended. Mr Coleman is a most sineoro evangelist, and works exceedingly hard. and we have no doubt that success must follow his good effort. Last Sunday the Rev John Pugh, of Cardiff, the founder of the Movement, rave most able ser- mons. Several hundreds listened to him. We wish Mr Coleman every success to continue the good work he has started.
