Tonypandy. I A supper and social took place on Tues- day, the 29th ult., at the Aberystwyth Restaurant to bid farewell to Miss Eunice Richards (Brice and Co., fruiterers), who sails on the 8th inst. to join relatives in America.

Owens, Ford and Webb (Trealaw). Mr. Williams (Masters and Co.) presided. During the evening, the presentation of a handsome dressing case was made to Miss Richards on behalf of her numerous friends as a slight token of the esteem in which I she was held. This was handed over to Miss Richards by Mr. Watkin Owens (Oliver and Co.), who in a neat speech conveyed the sincero wishes of her numerous acquaintances that her future in Dollar Land will be crowned with glowing success. Miss Richards suitably and feelingly responded. A grand performance of the cantata, Esther, the Beautiful Queen," was given at the Judge's Hall by the Alaw I Choral Society, under the conductorship of Mr. M.

The conductor and choir are to be highly complimented on the admirable success achieved in this their first effort, parti- cularly as this is the first time in the history of the district for a society of this kind to keep together long enough to bring such a perfoirmance to a successful issue. This speaks volumes for the per- sonality and energy of Mr. Davies, the conductor, and his committee.
