Pentre. An instructive and interesting meeting was held at Siloh on Wednesday evening last under the auspices of the Young Peoples Mutual Improvement Society, ac which excellent papers on the phase of the education question were read. The subject was, Should the Bible be read in the Elementary Schools? Mr. Jonathan John took the affirmative, while Mr. Ben Jones conducted the cross- firing in a dexterous and admirable fashion. Other speakers who took part in the discussion were Messrs. David Davies, Wm. Roberts, and J. Jones. A solo was also rendered by Mr. Tom Bon- nell, accompanied by Mr. John P. Davies. The following took part in the commence- ment of the meeting: âMiss Lizzie Thomas, Miss Elizabeth Davies, and Mr. John Darus (moulder). Mr. Gwilym Howells terminated. "The Russo-Japanese Question" was a theme which brought many an ardent listener to the Wesley Chapel on Thurs- day evening last. The question was dis- cussed in a lucid and appreciative manner by Mr. F. Woodward (London and Pro- vincial Bank), while lantern views were given by Mr. Edgar George. The pro- ceeds were towards liquidating the chapel debt. The question that was to be decided at the Pentre Literary and Debating Society on Monday evening last was whether Young Men should attend Theatres." The affirmative was taken by Mr. Bert Gale, while the negative was ably cham- pioned by Mr. J. T. Rees, assisted by Mr. Tom Phillips. A majority of twelve de- cided that young men should go to the theatre, as it was a means of imparting instruction in moral ethics. Mr. Evan Davies presided. T.
