A Pleasant Day at Forest House. ALDERMAN AND MRS MORGAN RECEIVE A THOUSAND VISITORS. With characteristic generosity, Alderman aiiel Mrs Walter H. Morgan, Forest House, enter- tained a number of the aged and infirm inmates of the Workhouse, as well as the children of the Cottage Homes, on Saturday afternoon, and a right pleasant time the poor folks had. In honour of the occasion Mrs Walter Morgaa had invited a number ef her oolleagues on the Board of Guardians, as well as several personal friends. Amongst those who were present and took a deep interest in providing the happiness of the dependents upon charity were the Rev and Mrs W Rees and the Misses Rees, Rhondda; Major and Mrs Hill-Male, Penyooedcae; Mr and Mrs Tom Jones, Glenview; Mr J amies Richards, Treforest; Mnr Phillips, Treorky; Mrs H. Abra- ham, Porth; Councillor and Mrs James Roberts, and Miss Roberta, Taff VaJe House, Mr and Mrs A. Stanley Cobb, Bank House, Ponty- pridd; Rev and Mrs J. Jenkins, Llantwit Vicar- age; Mr and Mrs Lefeaux, Glamorgan Bank, Pontypridd; Coun. R. L. Phillips, Mr Edwaril Williams, R.A.M., Pontypridd; Mrs and Miss Judd; Miss Janet Morgan, Miss Edith Hill,Miss Dora Robotham and Miss Katie Thomas, Tre- forest. At four o'clock about twenty inmates of the Workhouse arrived in a brake, accom- panied by the Master, Mr D. Oliver Lewis, and Nurse Bailey. They were given a cordial wel- come by Mr and Mrs Morgan, wh* personally conducted the oldest a*d the crippled to invit- ing seats and lounges on the lawn. Directly afterwards the Cottage Homes children, W.dl tho Master and Matron, Mr and Mrs Targett, Miss Fleming, Miss Evan*, and about a doze» other officers, arrived, and they, too, were soon made to feel quite at home, as they romped about the pretty grounds at their own sweet wills. By this tima harmony was added to har- mony, for sweet music was being disooursed o* the lawn by the Pontypridd Town Band, under the baton of Mr Foxall, and the Trallwn Tem- perance Band, conducted by Mr J. Martia. After enjoying pleasant rambles through the grounds, old people and children adjourned to a field where tea was served on the gree* grass in true picnic fashion. Subsequently they were joined by the children of Treforest Boapd Schools, Treforest Catholic Schools, and Glyn- taff National Schools, the visitors now reaching a total of over a thousand. The whole oompany were regaled with lemonade, cake, buns and sweets, and games were indulged in until dusk. What added immensely to the delights of the day was the Punch and Judy show of Mr Bryaa Cardiff. The domestic scenes in which these almost historic characters play such important parts were watched with eager interest, and the wicked husband was even applauded for his most cruel treatment of his "better half." So pleased were the youngsters with the show that the performances had to be repeated several times*. Before the large oompany dispersed Councillor R. L. Phillips delivered a neat little speech, in which he most sincerely thanked Alderman and Mrs Walter Morgan for their hospitality and generosity.
