CARNIVAL AT BARGOED. I HUGE SUCCESS. I Unquestionably the most success- j ful carnival held in the Bargoed district was that which took place I on Tuesday last, in aid of the Bar- goed and Gilfach Welcome Home I Fund. The committee who had the matter in hand had worked most assiduously in the organising, and nothing was left to chance. The secretaries, Messrs. W. T. Clement and A. J. Barber, were untiring in their efforts for the movement, and Mr. Ben. Edmunds, the chairman j of the committee, with Mr. J. Ed- munds, treasurer, were equally as active in their respective duties. How well the meeting was organised may be guaged by the fact that the takings at the. gate of the Recreation Ground amounted to nearly £150. The procession was forined "ilear the Old Mill-Hotel, and" headed by the Bargoed Town Band, under Mr. H. Bbsanko, a march was made through the principal streets" toj Qllfach, returning to the grounds, ."r where the judging took place. Those who took part in the march were greeted- along the route by huge thtpngs oi people*. The dresses were novel, quaint, and in many cases very original, and caused end- less amusement. The president of the meeting was Mr. H. E. Thomas, M.E., and the judges were:—Car- nival Mesdames H. E. Thomas, T. Cule, Miss R. Edmunds, Coun- cillor E. Jones, J. P., Messrs. Sylvan Evans and W. H. Morris; Sports Rev. T. Richards (Vicar of Bargoed), Messrs. Josiah Edwards, J. Davies, and D. J. Evans. The hon. secre- taries for the sports were Rev. T. Goshen Evans and Mr. Josiah Edwards.
