PENCOED NOTES. LBY ROVER.J THE COMING FIGHTS. This year bids fair to prove a lively one. It is almost certain that we shall have a general elec- tion before it is out. and the County Council elec- tions will be with us in less than two months. Mr. A. J. Williams is doing splendid work throughout the length and breadth of his constituency, and everywhere he is met with the greatest cordiality and enthusiasm. He is met, too. by the electors, and not by a parcel of women and children, such as go forth to cry Abrec" before Sir Morgan Morgan. The honourable member, accompanied by Mabon, M.P., will address the electors at Ponty- clown on Monday next. I anticipate a splendid meeting. The Llantrisant people are Liberal to the core, and Sir. Williams, who was a neighbour of theirs for a time. is a gentleman after their own hearts, and they will give him a right hearty wel- come on Monday. THE COUNTY COUNCIL ELECTION. As far as the Pencoed division is concerned. I am afraid we are not going to have very civil times in March. There is neither siw na miw that anv Conservative, Liberal Unionist, nor Independent forsooth is going to muster courage enough to attempt the hopeless task of ousting Councillor Howells, and it is more than probable that that gentleman is going to have a walk over. Per- sonally. I must say that I rather regret this. but when we remember how the figures stood at the close of the contest three years ago, we cannot in any way be surprised at it. THE RECENT FIRE AT COYCKURCH. Mr. Evan Thomas, the genial and popular land- lord of the White lIorse, Covchurch. where the great conflagration occurred on Monday night week, has the deepest sympathy of a large circle of friends. It is more than time that thatched houses and old-fashioned chimneys containing wooden beams should be done away with. especially in the case of publichouses. where large fires are generally kept. The only redeeming feature of the sad affair at Coychurch is that it will necessitate a new and better house. The old house was, of course, a very comfortable one, but it was any- thing but modern. A FACE THAT WILL BE MISSED. Mr. Griffiths, of Penlan. succumbed to his illness on Saturday last. and his familar and jolly face will be greately missed by everybody here. His 1 uniform kindness to all classes of society had endeared him to all. and his memory will be cherished for many days to come. He leaves a widow and. I believe, eleven children to mourn the loss of a loving husband and a faultless father. The remains of Mr. Griffiths will be interred in the burial grounds of the ancient church of Llan- ilid on Thursday next, and as I hear that the funeral is to be a public one, I have no doubt it will be very largely attended. MUTILATING HYMNS. I am sorry to say that I often hear some of our beautiful Welsh hymns sadly mutilated in some I chapels in this neighbourhood, and to make matters worse, the sinners are not confined to laymen. Of course it would be out of place for me here to name any chapels, but I hope the offenders will I take the hint in the spirit in which it is given. The late Dr. Edwards mentions in one of his incom- parable literary essays the case of a man some- where who had set his heart on composing a new tune to those beautiful words, Onr] boed fy nghalon i mewn hwvl, Fel telyn Dafvdd ar yr wyl. The composer, however, did not care for the reference in the hymn to the harp, and he resolved to make it read thus, Ond boed fy nghalon i'r pryd hyn, Fel Dafydd g-Yllt a'i violin. By way of greater improvement still some wag suggested to the musician the following- rendering. Ond acd fy nghalon diddle, diddle, Fel Dafydd bach yn canu 'r fiddle.
