Tonypandy. A very enjoyable evening was spent at Bethel English Baptist Chapel, Tony- pandy, on Monday evening (New Year's night). The entertainment committee of this go-ahead church had placed a, splen- did repast before the visitors. The table- holders were Mrs. Gilbert Thomas, Miss Lena Thomas, Miss Grace Banks, Miss Rhoda Holmes, Miss Maud Thomas, Miss Maud Hughes, Mrs, Mojrris and. Miss Rhoda Morris. During the tea, the visitors were entertained by Mr. Willie Ludlow, who is a capable and clever pianist, After the tea, the following artistes contributed very materially to the evening's enjoyment:âMr. Fred Phillips delighted his audience with a very humorous song; Mr. Francis Popham delivered with rare dramatic power a recitation, entitled The Flood," after which two little maidens, Misses Beatrice and Maggie Jones, sang very sweetly a duet, "There's a work for each of us." A diversion was caused by several very enjoyable and amusing games. among them being Musical Chairs," The Musical Pin," Queen of Sheba," and several forfeit games. Everybody entered into the spirit of the different games with considerable zest and pleasure. The audience were at this stage very mystified by the clever thought reading exhibition of Mr. ,R. R. Davies and Mr. J. Pandy Jones. The remainder of a splendid pro- gramme was now gone through, Mr.* John P. Jones contributing a very ably delivered elocutionary study, entitled "The Angel's Message." Mr. Willie Ludlow next treated the audience to a selection from Mendelssohn, which was brilliantly executed. An impromptu speech competition led to Mr. Phil. Bevan winning the first prize, a hand- some brass button, which he with com- mendable generosity presented to the church, "to be used for the good of the cause." Miss Mary Davies now delivered a recitation, entitled How Jane Con- quest Rang, the Bell," in a marner which showed keen literary insight, combined with histrionic ability. After the usual votes of thanks had been proposed in a neat speech by Mr. John Pandy Jones, and seconded by Mr. Robert Raikes Davies in an equally neat speech, the meeting tern mated.
