Ferndale. Many of the friends of Mr. D. J. Tre- harne, late correspondent of the Rhondda Leader" for Ferndale, will be glad to know that he has commenced preaching at London under the pastorate of the Rev. H. Elvet Lewis, and intends relin- quishing his duties as clerk at the head office of the National Amalgamated Union of Shop Assistants, in order to return to the Academy, Pontypridd, to prepare for one of the Congregational Colleges. We wish him every success in this important work. Mr. Treharne was a faithful mem- ber at Tabernacle, Ferndale, before he left for London. The Rev. Bryn Thomas preached a capital sermon at Tabernacle last Sunday evening on the observance of the Sabbath. The sermon was preached by request of the Hairdressers' Union, who intend peti- tioning Parliament to provide a Bill that will do away with Sunday labour. We have to record with regret the demise of Mrs. Seeley, wife of Mr. T. R. Seeley, tobacconist, which took place on Monday night, after a severe and painful illness. Mrs. Seeley was a daughter of the late Mr. R. Thompson, schoolmaster, whose death took place recently, and almost up to the period of her illness had been engaged at the Higher Grade School. Much sympathy is felt for Mr. Seeley and his two young children and to the widowed mother, Mrs. Thompson, whose trial, fol- lowing so closely upon her recent bereave- ment, is very sore. We extend to them our heartfelt sympathy. The annual conversazione in connection with Christ Church. Ferndale, took place on Thursday evening last at the Assembly Hall, and was a complete success. The arrangements had been ably carried out by the vicar (Rev. D. Davies) and a splendid committee, with the result that the evening contrasted very favourably with the efforts of previous years. A large number were present. The catering was excellent, and everyone present spent a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
